GIVE-Heaven Is Waiting
The purest light shines through green eyes
Controlled my senses and it defined my life
Heaven once held but never owned
The truest faith free from control
m.o.t.o(masters of the obvious) - dick about it. circa 1989
another great find from maximum rock and roll this month. I feel kinda dumb that ive never heard of these guys before because this is rocking! No matter how big for your boots you get there is always going to be great bands you dont know about and you should open that with open arms and not be a dick about it because you think you know better.
I love this song!
Don Ray - Born a Loser
After a week off from work ive dedicated the majority of the last week to sort my bedroom out. Among the normal day to day chores that everyone else has to do, like sorting out clothes, clearing floor space and neatening up the underwears draws, ive had the daunting task of going through my cds,records,books and dvds.
Id imagine a lot of you reading this are thinking “big deal guy”. To most other people id have to admit i think the same. Id rarely consider myself an exception to the majority in most senses. Im a weird guy who spends most of his time whilst not at work playing with my cat,watching films,reading nerdy graphic novels and “trying” to cook for my girlfriend. Pretty normal right? The only exceptional characteristic trait i think i have in my weird persona is the strange ability to collect an absurd amount of records,dvds,books,tapes and vhs. Its not something im particularly proud of, its just something i cant shake off.
So when it comes down to sorting out all of this shit, it takes time.
Its been about 3 days so far of going through boxes under my bed, pulling things off of shelves, re arranging zines and books, and the worst task of all getting the shoe boxes full of records out from under my bed in a weird self righteous event of sorting out records. i know “holy,fuck. first world problems dick head”.
Everything has finally come to an end tonight with my house mate and his girlfriend ending up in my room for the last 4 hours picking out and sorting the cds and records into ultimate “oh,shit. ive forgot id had this” piles, and “have you listened to this? no? oh amazing, right. this is going on next” piles.
Its been a great night, not only have i somewhat traveled through time in my subconscious to memories of when ive bought records or listened to a band live or “heard this band for the first time when i was 12” kinda moments, ive also had the pleasure to play lots of music to friends and drank beer and all shared a great moment of aural pleasure.
Writing this all now and looking back on what ive written makes me think im weird. I don’t really know where im going with this. I guess sometimes its just always worth going through what you love and what you have every now and again, materialistic or not. Sometimes we all have stuff or people that are around us all time and we never realize they are there at all. Whether or not it be a record, a dvd, a book or just a friend in a book you haven’t called in a while. Going through everything and realizing what you have every once in a while gives you a great feeling no matter how bad you might have felt off at the beginning.never forget what you have, what you own or what you are. all these things contribute greatly to who you and i are. Forgetting all that leaves you nothing but yourself.
“whoa,this guy really writes some self righteous tripe, what a jerk.”
I actually can’t stop listening to this song. I think I’m on number 18 on the repeat count now. Its been so long since I’ve listened to the wipers. completely forgot how much i love this song.
One day whenever i get round to making a bmx video or do at least a web edit for someone. this tune is definitely going to be getting involved.
so in love with the lyrics.
I don't know what I am So just go put on another sham What to I don't know what I am So I'll just go put on another sham What to do when you're always subjected? What you feel when you're always neglected? Try to run but there's nowhere to find No sanctuary Do you know what you are ? I have this feeling that we didn't go far What we do when we're always suspected? What we feel when we're always rejected? Try to run but there's no where to find No sanctuary I don't know what I am So just going to put on another sham What to do when you're always subjected? What you feel when you're always neglected? Try to run but there's nowhere to find No sanctuary

FInally getting a chance to see these two play in a venue 30 seconds from my house in a few weeks. very excited. I get major goosebumps every time i listen to this one.
recently got a film developed from agggges ago. Taken on a the vivitar ultra wide and slim. Bought this camera for £4 off ebay years ago to later find out everyone went nuts on it and started charger 50 odd pound for it. morons. This camera sucks!
“As the trial of members of Russian punk group Pussy Riot gets underway today in Moscow over a protest song Virgin Mary, redeem us of Putin in Christ the Saviour Cathedral on 21 February, Amnesty International Europe and Central Asia Director John Dalhuisen said:
“This trial should never have taken place. The three singers are being tried for making a legitimate protest - this is not a criminal offence. They must be released immediately.
“They dared to attack the two pillars of modern Russian establishment - the Kremlin and the Orthodox Church. While many may have found their act offensive, the sentence of up to seven years in prison they may expect on the charges of hooliganism is wildly out of all proportion.
“In any case, we have serious concerns whether Maria Alekhina, Ekaterina Samutsevich and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova may have a fair trial thanks to the extremely prejudicial atmosphere cooked up in string of statements by politicians and clerics from the top echelons of Russian society.
“These have been widely broadcast by the media shaping public opinion against these three women. The trial is clearly politically motivated.”

So sad to see that during their first day on trail even their own lawyers told the world press that getting them off a jail sentence would be highly unlikely.
