Thursday Thoughts

Who are the chicas in the picture I know is the first thing that you are asking? Well, I'm not going to spill names so I'll just say those are some of our wonderful sisters out here in the good ole U.S of A. The mama on the left looks pretty nice other than the ill advised blue contact lenses. It's the chic on the right that I have to comment about, first of all when you are a "round" mama the best way to go is always with earth tones (correct me if I'm wrong fashion gurus); but that top makes that chic look like a big smartie/ ball gum. I do like her bangle though, it reminds me of those nice ones that were free with a jar of Solea when we were kids. But you know what, I'm not going to talk trash about the tattoos on her thigh that look more like ketchup stains. I'm not going to say anything about her eye shadow too, oh nooooooo. Anyway I know some people out there are getting heated, so here is a solution that will work best for the both of us; kill yourself! Bwehehehehehehehehehehehehehehe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If this is the kind of problem that record companies have in the West, I wonder what kind of problems they have in the third world. Honestly when was the last time one of you in Kenya bought an original cd, no Kenyan music doesnt count since it is made locally and is most probably cheaper; and no the cds you buy in the exhibitions are not original, I would have thought the badly scanned covers would have tipped you off.

I think that Alfred Mutua needs to go to China so he can learn how to do this, at least if you are going to lie to people and talk trash be good at it, that's my opinion.

This post was much longer, but Windows Vista decided that I didn't need it so it crashed Mozilla for me. It also sucks how some old software (if 5 years is old), always crashes on vista or causes your computer to restart. Anyway I know there are some computer gurus out there, so I'll consult them on these fixes, so sorry less post for ya'll. Time to get back to real life................

Yet Another Week II

First things first, congratulations to any Tottenham Hotspurs fans out there! It was about time for a new team outside the top 4 to win some silver ware and to show Chelsea that millions don't always equal wins.

In other news I was going through the many giga bytes of music that I have and I ran across some music that I loved listening to some years back and I came to an interesting realisation. The realization is that I was one melancholic morose bastard. Let me give one exhibit. I used to love the song by Counting Crows below.

Long winters, break ups, dank hospitals and hoping that next year will be better. Those are just some of the themes from the song.In fact here are the full lyrics down below;

A long December and theres reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I cant remember the last thing that you said as you were leaven
Now the days go by so fast
And its one more day up in the canyons
And its one more night in Hollywood
If you think that I could be forgiven...i wish you would
The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that its all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attaches to a girl
And its one more day up in the canyons
And its one more night in Hollywood
If you think you might come to California...i think you should
Drove up to hillside manor sometime after two a.m.
And talked a little while about the year
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her
And its been a long December and theres reason to believe
Maybe this year will be better than the last
I cant remember all the times I tried to tell my myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass
And its one more day up in the canyon
And its one more night in Hollywood
Its been so long since Ive seen the ocean...i guess I should

A deep song but not a happy one by any means. Here is one of their other songs that I used to love, less morose than the other one but it isn't a love fest by any means.

And before any of you think of saying it, I'll say it first;

"No, I wasn't depressed!"

You see depression is a poison that seeps into your soul and once in a while you actually realise it is there and try and fight it as you realise what it is doing to you; slowly eating away at you. That wasn't my situation. I think at that point in life, things weren't so rosy but instead of letting it get me depressed and make my life stop, I just took the situation and made it part of my word view. I'm already introverted so some melancholy added to the mix isn't such a big stretch. And to be honest at that point in time, I didn't think anything was a miss nor did it really interfere with the quality of my life. I think instead of poisoning me, it made me stronger because to be honest, I really don't get depressed about anything but on the other hand I also don't get over joyed about much. I guess the chorus of this track is my new theme song (the rest of the lyrics are rubbish to be honest).

Anyway I'm listening to a whole lot more upbeat music and eclectic variety of music as befits my personality! I've also been listening to alot of deep reggae such as Burning Spear but it makes me get really pensive due to the heavy messages in his songs so no Burning Spear cds in my car Thank you!

It's about that time to keep it moving, so have a nice week people and don't be melancholic!
