Wardruna and Aurora - Helvegen (Live)

Today is the big day, Neighborhood Wars...let the Pigs play. War Pigs.

The original title of "War Pigs" was "Walpurgis", dealing with the witches' sabbath.[3][4] "Walpurgis is sort of like Christmas for Satanists. And to me, war was the big Satan", said bassist and lyricist Geezer Butler. "It wasn’t about politics or government or anything. It was Evil itself. So I was saying 'generals gathered in the masses / just like witches at black masses' to make an analogy. But when we brought it to the record company, they thought 'Walpurgis' sounded too Satanic. And that's when we turned it into 'War Pigs'. But we didn't change the lyrics, because they were already finished."

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor


Faith No More's cover....the best ever done, imho

You Never Give Me Your Money / The End



The End is priceless....hope you make the journey!

This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us - Sparks

Sparks is an American pop and rock duo formed by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russell Mael (vocals). Known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by sophisticated and acerbic lyrics, often about women or Shakespearean literature references, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's animated, hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's deadpan scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael's distinctive wide-ranging voice and Ron Mael's intricate and rhythmic keyboard playing style. They were much more successful in Europe than in their native US, though they maintain a loyal cult following in the States.

It has been claimed that producer Muff Winwood bet with his friend Elton John that the song would become a top-five hit on the UK Singles Chart and that Elton John, saying it would not, lost the bet.[4] In his Sparks biography Talent Is an Asset, however, Daryl Easlea reports that this was a "great tale" propagated by the Mael brothers that is contradicted by Winwood himself – in fact, Winwood said that, unsure of how commercial the track would be, he played it to Elton John, who told him, "Listen, I'll bet you a hundred quid that that makes the Top 3". Winwood's wife agreed, and his doubts were allayed.

Private Investigations - Dire Straits

It's a mystery to me, the game commences
For the usual fee plus expenses
Confidential information, it's in a diary
This is my investigation, it's not.


Witch Wolf - Styx

Reoccurring symptoms
Answer the baleful howl
Bringing me dreams of darkness
The doer of all that's foul
Raping the minds of infants
Sower of unplanted seeds
Full moon warrior
Doer of sordid deeds


Words Unspoken - Supertramp

Why sing a lonely song
The whole world knows that love goes wrong
Why bruise a heart that isn't broken
It isn't broken. It can be broken.


Who cancels who?

The right boycotts football because some players take a knee as an exercise in free speech.

The right complains about protests from BLM and other groups, yet tries to cover up their own participation in actively trying to overthrow democracy.

The right racists cancel and refuse to acknowledge the history of slavery and black oppression in this country by controlling what is taught in schools.

The right racists cancelled the Indian culture and created a school to whitewash their ancestry, then cancelled their claim to their land and gave them little slices of the country that was stolen from them, so long as they don't complain when the government comes in and takes even more if they want it.

The racist right is cancelling the votes of millions in order to "secure" the elections.

The police unions in all cities are cancelling the rights of law abiding POC at every turn.

The homophobic right is cancelling the rights of LGBTQ+.

The reQuplicans are trying to cancel the memory of the insurrection.

The reQublicans are trying to cancel science based evidence.

The reQublicans are cancelling the truth.

The right does not want to hear what the left has to say, there is no dialogue, it has been cancelled.

It is time to take back the narrative. When the right claims they are the victims of cancel culture, it needs to be thrown back in their face. We are not cancelling anything. We, the sane people of this country, are trying to expose their cancellation of democracy.

It is past time to recognize who is doing the cancelling.

I plan on making damn sure I confront it whenever I encounter it.

I'm tired of being cancelled.
