Or not. But there is a lot of randomness. Where to start?

Band Pimpage

I have two bands to talk about today. I think I will start with Rise Against since they come first alphabetically.

Felt like sharing for those of you who are in to music with a message. You mat have seen/heard their song Prayer of the Refugee. It seems to be getting a lot of play on rock stations. Good song but I tend to lean more towards their first singe Ready To Fall. The video is very graphic but great. It shines a spot like on numerous issues that I care about. It was even up at the PETA website for a while. Do not know if it is still there might have to go check it out. I can see it pushing people off but when you are trying to convey a message sometimes you have to do that to give justice to the cause. But I think one of the best songs on the album is called Bricks. That is where the title of this post came from. It is a great punk song with a good (well I guess that) you message. 

 
Ready to Fall Video (Warning it is very graphic I think)

Bricks Lyrics

When faith alone is not enough,
To keep our heads barely above,
We look for reason and come up empty-handed.
And when our children fight our wars,
while we sit back just keeping score,
Were teaching murder not understanding now.

We're setting the fires to light the way,
We're burning it all to begin again,
With hope in our hearts and bricks in our hands,
We sing for change.

The lives our buried sons have laid,
We'll cancel debts we've yet to pay,
How could we justify anything now,
As long as we blindly obey and do exactly what they say,
We'll have no one to blame but ourselves now.

We're setting the fires to light the way,
We're burning it all to begin again,
With hope in our hearts and bricks in our hands,
We sing for change.

We run on the fumes of injustice,
We'll never die with the fuel that you give us,

Keep it coming 'cause I'm prepared to burn,
Keep running from me at every turn.

Turn your life around,
(into something true, into something true)
So turn your life around,
(into something true, something true)

We're setting the fires to light the way,
We're burning it all to begin again,
With hope in our hearts and bricks in our hands,
We sing for change.

Number next is Stolen Babies. I saw them on a magazine and thought they looked a little weird. Then when I found out there band name was Stolen Babies I had to check them out. I did a quick search on myspace and found their page. Started listening to their song and fell in love with them. Ordered their album and have been listening the them since. They are a very unique band. They have a dark almost circusesque sound to them.


Here to stay

I just got the email saying LJ got my money and upgraded me to permanet status (Sweet). Now I need to find 104 more icons to add. Looks like I need to get busy.

Learned something while driving

Windsheild wipers can not work at 85 MPH. The tend to almost get blown off your car.

Lee Fest

I had a many marathon of a bunch of Lee stuff. Wanted, The Beat, Duckman, and a few more, and it is all thanks to  fanfromfla . Thanks again.

Shopping

So I went to Best Buy in order to just buy a new memorycard for my playstation. My last one got washed which sucks. I lost all my data for Final Fantasy X, X2, and XII, and Kingdom Hearts. I ended up buying AFI's Decemberunderground and Rise Against The Suffer and the Witness. Can you say no control?


New DVD's

I bought Pan's Labyrinth and Next Stop Wonderland recently. love both of those movies so I had to get one for myself. I want to make an icon with the blue rose that appears during Ophelia's story, but I let my friend borrow the DVD so it is going to have to wait.



That is it I think.
