Champs Élysées

 

I was walking down the avenue and my heart wanted something unknown(new)
I felt like saying good day to anybody
To anybody and that was you, and I said something (anything)
It was enough to me to talk to you to make you mine

At Champs Élysées, at Champs Élysées
If it’s raining or if sun is shining, if it’s noon or midnight
You have anything you want at Champs Élysées

You told me “I have a meeting in the basement with the madmen
who live with guitars in their hands from evening till morning”
So I joined you, we sang and we danced
But we never even thought of kissing or hugging.

At Champs Élysées, at Champs Élysées
If it’s raining or if sun is shining, if it’s noon or midnight
You have anything you want at Champs Élysées

 

As I wrote the 420 post the other day I was learning about the Paris shooting. That’s the world we live in today. Our good times and celebrations are constantly being hijacked by those who want to take away our individual freedoms.

The attack comes just days before the French presidential election.  That can’t be helpful. France has already been dealing with the tragedies caused by these freedom hijackers over the past few years making the election an important one and a confusing one. Something echoing throughout the world. People are scared, people are pissed, people are grieving. And they are searching for answers. Wanting to stop the madness, but not knowing how to do it.

I don’t have any answers. I just want to say how bad this sucks.

Until the other day if someone mentioned Champs Élysées, I would think of that NOFX cover. I would think of a place in Paris where 2 strangers might meet and fall in love while “madmen” played beautiful music on their guitars. Paris, the city of love, right? I have danced in the pit to this song more than once. When I play it there are great memories and just all over good feelings. It’s just one of those songs that makes me feel good about everything. I want to put my arms around those around me and dance and sing.

Fuck these other madmen who want to change that. I will not let them. At least I don’t want to let them.

I do not want dates and places to become sad memories of senseless tragedies.

But to be honest, if it continues this way, I don’t know if that is possible to stop.

Yes, no answers here,  I’m not even sure why I’m writing this post. It just sucks.

I want it to stop, I know it won’t.

#Three And Music

#Three

So one idea I had for #Three was to make a group of posts called “3 Songs“. where I would post 3 songs that all had something to do with each other. The first post was called “3 Songs”. But although I had the 3 songs pulled aside I didn’t write a post. These are the 3 songs:

……………..

…………..

 

See how they all have the number 3 in the titles? 3 Songs. The next post would have been called something like “3 Old Songs” and I would have posted 3 songs about getting old. Or maybe “3 Rock Songs” where I’d post 3 songs about rocks. Or something like that. You get it. Doesn’t matter, I never got to it and there just isn’t enough time left in this third year to get to it. Too bad ’cause I had lots of ideas for it, back when I first thought of doing it (the blog was still in year 2 so I had to wait) I would hear a song and say, that would be a good song for 3 songs and see what other 2 songs I could connect it to. It was fun that never got to the blog. Sorry about that. I hope you liked the 3 songs I had picked out for the post that never was.

The first one, “Three’s A Charm”, is from a band called Sea Hags. They are what some call glam metal or a hair band. I thought they were cool but they were kind of late to the party and missed out on the late ’80s  uproar for the excess of sex, drugs, and hairspray. Still if you find this song cool like I did, I would suggest checking out the rest of the self-titled album. You might dig it. The second is a little more well know, School of Fish’s “3 Strange Days”. I have always liked this song and in fact it inspired a very strange dream I had once, that took place over 3 days ( I wasn’t asleep for 3 days, but 3 days passed in the dream). The third song is Britney Spears, 3. I think it’s self-explanatory why I picked it (it’s called 3).

So there ya go. The real post would have probably been a little longer and gone more into each song, plus it would have been followed with other post, each with 3 new songs somehow connected. It might have been fun. Oh well.

I didn’t bring this all up for nothing though. For one I had these 3 videos sitting in an unnamed, unfinished post and I wanted to delete it or post it. Plus I wanted to lead into one last #Three post. It’s also about music…

Ain’t Nothing But Music

I found a link for the songs used to torture terrorist. Before you read it, who do you think is on it?

Song Dedication

It’s been a while since we’ve done a song dedication. I’m feeling a little sentimental today, so I got another one for ALL of us!

This song says it all, as most of my favorites do.  Just remember, every hater is just looking for that love that is alluding them. Hopefully they will find it some day. No mater what though it’s “Only what you give…”

Here’s the actual video for you Tesla fans: What You Give

A Green Day Break

I hope I gave you enough to read for a little while, cause I need a break. Listening to Green Day’s “Uno” today, I had another moment of serendipity with a few songs:

“Let Yourself Go”

 

Shut your mouth ’cause you’re talking too much
And I don’t give a damn anyway
You always seem to be stepping in shit
And all you really do is complain
It’s your lie, tell it how you like
Small minds tend to think alike
Shut your mouth ’cause you’re talking too much
And I don’t give a fuck anyway
[Chorus:]
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go [x4]
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go [x2]
Cut the crap ’cause you’re screaming in my ear
And you’re taking up all of the space
You’re really testing my patience again
And I’d rather get punched in the face
You’re getting on my every last nerve
Everything you’ve said I’ve already heardI’m sick to death of your every last breath
And I don’t give a fuck anyway[Chorus:]
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go [x4]
Gotta let me go, gotta let it go [x4]

Always fuck fuckin’ with my head now..
Always fuck fuckin’ with my head now..
Always fuck fuckin’ with my head now..
Always fucking with my head and I gotta let it go!

[Chorus:]
Let yourself go, let yourself go, let yourself go [x8]

 

“Loss Of Control”

I’m taking down all my enemies ’cause they’re all so fucking useless
A bunch of shit talking drama queens and they’re all filled with excuses
I wanna find me a better scene where it’s not the same opinion
I’d rather go to a funeral than to this high school reunion

April Fool caught you’re falling in love
But now you’re sucking on a door knob that I slammed in your face
Life’s a cruel crushing bastard crime
But you’re a stupid mother fucker and you’re doing your time ’cause

We’re all crazy, you’re all crazy now
Well we’re so crazy, you’ve all gone insane
Loss of control, loss of control

Hanging out all by myself, at least I make good company
Hey, isn’t that a whatshisface that I see walking down the street
I’m gonna hide in the shadows ’cause I really got nothing to say
We never had anything in common and I never liked you anyway

April Fool caught you falling in love
But when you’re sucking on a door knob that I slammed in your face
Life’s a cruel crushing son of a bitch
And you’re a stupid mother fucker serving shit to the pigs

We’re all crazy, you’re all crazy now
Well we’re so crazy, you’ve all gone insane
Loss of control, loss of control

April Fool caught you falling in love
But now you’re sucking on a door knob that I slammed in your face
Life’s a cruel crushing bastard crime
But you’re a stupid mother fucker and you’re doing your time ’cause

We’re all crazy, you’re all crazy now
We’re so crazy, you’ve all gone insane
Loss of control, loss of control

Get the connections? LOL, a break is needed from the madness! Click on the song titles in red if you can’t see the videos.

Zero Lyrics

I felt like writing some new lyrics today, this one’s called:

              Change The World

every where I look, everyone’s fighting evil

the side your on, depends on your point of view

every where I look, everyone’s playing the victim

and it all comes back to that mentality of us vs them

 

everyday I wake up to another disaster

the sign of the times brings it to us much faster

everyday I wake up with hope for the future

but as the day goes on I become not so sure

 

everybody want’s to change the world, everybody wants to change the world

everyday in every way

sadly— everybody— is changing the world everyday in every way

 

ever wonder what would happen if we just gave in

and stopped worrying about when it will end

looked ahead and saw something good

and got together as we know we should

 

ever wonder what would happen if we stopped procrastinating

pretending, lying, and ego masturbating

what could be accomplished at the end of the day

if we said what we meant and mean what we say

 

everybody want’s to change the world, everybody wants to change the world

everyday in every way

sadly—- everybody—- is changing the world everyday in every way

 

everyone I meet say they know a better way to be

but I’m not sure their way is the best for me

everyone I see say they have it all figured out

but I’m not sure anyone knows what they talk about

 

everybody that I know say they want the best for us all

but then they all laugh when we fall

everybody rides the tilt-o-whirl

everybody want’s to change the world…

 

NOTE: The first verse and chorus was written in April, the second verse was written May 8th, and the third verse was written today.

 

Intermission

Before it get’s all sue crazy again in here… let’s all sit back, take it easy, and enjoy some serendipity…

The other day when I told TCTH my real name and showed her my Facebook, she said, “you really are an 80’s kid”, and this is such an understatement.

My wife turned me on to a song the other day and I have been playing it non stop (like I do) ever since. It’s called Sloth’s Revenge by the Dirty Heads. Click on the LINK to hear it: http://youtu.be/av_LOlkKBcw

It brings it all together don’t it? No? Well take it as you want, but I like it and I think it needed to be played here to help relax the mood again. Because I think some scary times are ahead.

                SLOTH’S REVENGE

I am, Everything that I said I am
Keep my shit tight man, motherfuckin’ Hoover Dam
And I ain’t crackin anytime soon, My mind said its fine tuned,
This world will be mine soon,
Show down at high noon, Sharp as a harpoon,
Crash like a monsoon, Style like a costume,
I’m constantly awesome,
Voice fresh as spring, Yo my beats bout to blossom,
Caution, get outs of it when I’m moshin’
My friends are all high, I’m nice and I got em that way,
We Bulls on Parade,
My bowls full of weed man, higher than a pterodactyl
You can call me caveman, California raisin,
Hear me through the grapevine,
Duddy B be dazed again but man I’m feelin’ just fine,
I be out in Vegas while ya bitches just at state line,
I ain’t never stoppin’ til’ I finally feel I got mine.

[Jared: Chorus]
We never gonna lay down, We ain’t goin nowhere, You can come and give a try
Our bond is our blood and thicker than water, Like Goonies never say die
Ooooooooooooooooooh Like Goonies never say
Ooooooooooooooooooh Like Goonies never say die

[Duddy B: Rap]
I keep it cool right, I’m like an avalanche,
I get stupid when I want to, Rain Man
I keep it flowin’ and I do the rain dance,
Man everybody loves me call me Rain Man,
Here I go, I be gettin’ so high like I’m standing on my tippy toes,
Spread my wings and fly but I got two arms where my wings should go,
Hungry as an animal, Tearin’ down the devils door,
He’s sellin’ me his soul for all the lyrics in my arsenal,
Eyes red, Lungs full, Half-massed flag pole,
I’m about to kill this beat and throw it in a Drowning Pool,
Hair long style, cool lyrics, fresh jet fuel,
On this track no lookin back, I’m hippy like a hacky sac
Smoother than a Cadillac, P. Demspey need a medi-vac
Yeah I lost my shit but bitch you know I got the passion back,
Lock this out my temper trap, I’m laughin’ at your pussycats
I ain’t never stopping til the top is what I’m lookin’ at

[Jared: Chorus]
Say, We never gonna lay down, We ain’t goin nowhere, You can come and give a try
Our bond is our blood and thicker than water, Like Goonies never say die
Ooooooooooooooooooh Like Goonies never say
Ooooooooooooooooooh Like Goonies never say die

[Jared: Rap]
Okay listen up kiddos I’m a shark you’re a minnow,
Balls on your chin, Call your bitch Jay Leno,
Don’t go swimmin’ cause your shit sounds menstrual,
We ain’t here to play like Dr. Dre South Central,
Spit barbiturates to make you move your tits and shit,
To have your body movin, have your hips just throwin fits,
Willie sittin’ high, just as high
The time is 9 now, Floorin’ my Dalorean, Marty McFLy yeah
Anybody home, two spliffs to the dome,
It’s a headshot, dread not,
Noobs get pwned!
Yeah I fucking said it, That was so last year,
I got a pack full of gear and a trunk full of beer.

[Jared: Chorus]
We never gonna lay down, We ain’t goin nowhere, You can come and give a try
Our bond is our blood and thicker than water, Like Goonies never say die
Ooooooooooooooooooh Like Goonies never say
Ooooooooooooooooooh Like Goonies never say die
