" We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems. "

- Arthur William Edgar O'Shaughnessy

Dire Straits

Baby I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the things they say
But baby I’ll wipe away those bitter tears
I’ll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey

Why worry, there should be laughter after the pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now

Baby when I get down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn’t hard to say
But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold
And all the rest is by the way

- funny how a band called DIRE STRAITS wrote a song about not worrying :P

but its a cool song

You are Drama.
You are extroverted and like to show off, but can
be very subtle and intelligent when you want.
As an expert at story-telling, you love
attention and have developed the skill of
keeping it.
You get along well with Literature and Film.

What form of art are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

old friends

Old friends, old friends,
Sat on their parkbench like bookends
A newspaper blown through the grass
Falls on the round toes
of the high shoes of the old friends

Old friends, winter companions, the old men
Lost in their overcoats, waiting for the sunset
The sounds of the city sifting through trees
Settles like dust on the shoulders of the old friends

Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a parkbench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy

Old friends, memory brushes the same years,
Silently sharing the same fears

- S&G, last i heard they were 2 old friends who couldnt stand each other.. so.. HAHA

Who are you?

Sunday, November 21, 2004


Where are you?

Saturday, November 20, 2004

Where are you going, with your long face pulling down?
Don’t hide away, like an ocean
But you can’t see, but you can... smell
And the sound of waves crashing down

I am no superman
I have no reasons for you
I am no hero; oh that’s for sure
But I do know one thing
Is where you are, is where I belong
I do know where you go is where I wannna be

Top 10

According to Rolling Stone magazine...

the top ten greatest rock and roll songs are as follows:

1. "Like a Rolling Stone," Bob Dylan
2. "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," Rolling Stones
3. "Imagine," John Lennon
4. "What's Going On," Marvin Gaye
5. "Respect," Aretha Franklin
6. "Good Vibrations," Beach Boys
7. "Johnny B. Goode," Chuck Berry
8. "Hey Jude," Beatles
9. "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Nirvana
10. "What'd I Say," Ray Charles

i can proudly say, i actually own all of them on CD! (not just in my mp3 folder)

Now they need to do a top ten Rock song of all time.

here's my pick for the top 3 at least...
1. "Purple Haze" Jimi Hendrix
2. "Stairway to Heaven" Led Zeppelin
3. "Bohemian Rhapsody" Queen

i could go on. and on.. and on..

Hasn’t always been a sunny day
Now and then there’s been a little rain
But together we remain
Nothin’ to lose, everything to gain
And I can’t imagine what a day would be
If there never was a you and me
Just know I’ll be here always

Through the years I have come to know
Rain makes a flower grow
And if it must rain, let it pour
‘Cause I’ll be your strength and much more
I’m yours

It doesn’t matter what tomorrow brings, I’m yours
If we were rich and we lost everything {Lost everything, baby},
I’m yours {I’m yours}
We’ll be in love for the world to see
{In love for all the world to see, baby}, I’m yours
{I know that you are mine, just know that I’m yours}

- Quincy Jones featuring Siedah Garrett and El DeBarge>

mid week

the last couple of weeks have been wierd.

its pretty much been a rollercoaster ride of emotions and feelings.
albeit some of the emotion may have been misplaced, but they are my emotions so sod off.

i need to learn to be more sensitive to the needs of people around me. it isnt always about how i feel and what i want or need. one misplaced word can pretty much screw up most anything.

pretty much i think im a lousy friend.

i've also realised that either "the world is a much larger placed than i had imagined" or "im not as big as i made myself out to be"

I just want to be able to rewind, and redo the parts of my life which i think could've been done better.

i'm sorry.

listening to: the verve's bittersweet symphony. (how apt)

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare

“This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

- gotta love Mr B

fake plastic trees

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love

But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

And it wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time, all the time

- radiohead



four days have passed,
the fifth day of the week,
ginger, garlic and onions,
beef with stir fry leek


Yesterday was Thursday
and amidst of all I am
the sour tang of the asian spices
simmered in my bowl of Tom Yam

Being rational

I dont want to be rational any more.

I want to be irresponsible.
I want to not have to care about where my next meal is coming from.
I want to not have to care about anything other than myself.
I want to wake up in the afternoon and tell myself that I have nothing to do.
I want to sleep when I want to and not have to set an alarm to wake me up.
I want to be able to do things without the consequences of my actions coming back to bite me in the ass.
I want to be able to pin the blame on things that go wrong on someone else.
I want to throw my laundry on the floor and have them appear in my cupboard the next day, clean and pressed.

but I can't.

But I am rational
I think too much and I think too little.
I try too hard and I try too little.
I, I, I
Me, me, me

It's not just about me anymore isit?


Does it matter what I feel?
Does it matter what I want?
Does it matter?

I don't want to know the answers.

I have a question..

What do you believe in?

Just a song before I go,
To whom it may concern.
Travelling twice the speed of sound
It's easy to get burned.

When the shows were over
We had to get back home,
And when we opened up the door
I had to be alone.

- Crosby, Stils & Nash

shadow, smile, love, life

The shadow of your smile when you are gone
Will color all my dreams and light the dawn
Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things you are to me

Our wistful little star was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips andd so did I
Now when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The Shadow of your smile
cool stuff aint it?
