In On The Kill Taker

I haven't really written anything about music lately (maybe a review of Spoon's new record coming soon), so I figured I ask a question. What 5 bands would I reunite, should I have the power to do so and assuming all members are still alive/active? This seems a little hard, so I have decided to do two categories; bands of the past (the classics) and bands from my lifetime. Here's my list; what's yours?

My Generation:

The Replacements
Black Flag
Husker Du
At The Drive-In

The Classics:

Pink Floyd
Van Halen (excuse me, I meant Van Hagar)
The Clash
Miles Davis
The Band

Culturally Appropriate Post Script - Props to anyone who can tell me what that Gold disc in the picture is.

I want to conquer the world; give all these idiots a brand new religion

Should Be Loved

Stop staring, you’re the reason I feel so unhappy all the time
I’ve given you everything I know how
Your standing on the top of my shoe
keeping me from gaining ground
I’m sorry if you feel like I let you down

Can you tell me what have I done so wrong
To you
Tell me what am I supposed to do

“I should be loved by you,
That I know is true
But I cant breathe when you’re around!”

“I should be held at night
That I know is right
But I cant breathe when you’re around!”

You’re too scared,
Scared of all of it …I get that feeling I’m talking to the wall
Can you hear me at all
My world was shaking my mind was quaking, my heart kept breaking
I threw it against the wall
Can anyone feel me at all

Can you tell me what have I done so wrong... to you
Tell me what am I supposed to do
I got a feeling, you’re falling out of love with me
Tell me who am I supposed to be

“I should be loved by you
That I know is true
I can’t breathe when you’re around!”

“I should be held at night
That I know is right
I cant breathe when you’re around!!
Look I can’t breath!”

You know you've fucked up when even the people who are obligated by family ties don't even trust you anymore. Everything you say is a lie, your friends slowly stop calling, nothing you do is ever good enough for pretty much everybody, and trying to fix things just makes them worse and you don't see an end in sight. Shit, at this point in my life, I doubt most people would even ask me the time of day, much less give it for fear that I would lie to them in order to further my selfish scheming.

I can't really blame anybody but myself, even if some it really was out of my control. Life just seems to go by so fast that eventually, when you actually decide to stop and take a look around, you realize you have worn out your welcome. Your friends are gone. Your family sees you as a burden, and what's worse is what you see in the mirror staring back at you. I really hope that reincarnation is a myth, because I sure as hell don't want to live this life again.

I don't belong here, I gotta move on dear, escape from this afterlife, 'cause this time I'm right to move on and on, far away from here. Got nothing against you and surely I'll miss you. This place full of peace and light, and I'd hope you might take me back inside, when the time is right.

In my quest to find the perfect word or picture to define the cluster-fuck that was the year of 2009, I would like to thank Scott Ramsoomair of VG Cats for unknowingly doing the work for me.

So beautiful and so strange
