Hopeless Self-justification...

Where did I take that confounded wrong turn...

this is one of the top questions to hit my head during my personal hours of reflection. (read *lecture hours*)
Sometimes I think I've gone astray and wound up at a place where I'm not supposed to be..
Life is cruel, it gives you no lifelines.
You gotta think on your own (which is time-consuming., not to mention the hard work involved), or ask others who are as lost as you are..

The reflection process continues...

this place.. what's it even called?!
Oh wait, I must be the first to tread these grounds..
correction: the first of my kind...
for I can spot many, out of the corner of my eye..
shapeless shadows running and taking refuge in the inviting dark..
I try to count.. weigh my chances..
but heck, there's just too many
God, I just wish they dont bite...
...but I can already feel the blood leave my system

I get one of my Adrenaline rushes!

and I know what will follow:
"Hey guys look what I can do....
...oh fuck that hurt!@"

Yeah right, what happens around me these days seem to be way outta my league.. I feel like I'm some insignificant creature. *gah

back at the ethereal wasteland where my life has lurched to a screeching halt.

claws tightening round my feet...
that blind alley suddenly looks like a safe haven.
I dont know what it holds for me
but I'm not afraid.. I dont care..
yeah, that's what she told me..
"You don't fuckin care!"
I'm glad I didn't bring her along.. I need to suffer this alone
I don't need a friend
not that I deserve any..
or do I?
I wonder, as I ease my mind and take a drag..
smoke rings fill the air
this is my best friend..
the cancer that slowly eats its way through my bones..
my friend who's gonna put the final nail in my coffin..
my friend who can slow the sunlight down..
always by my side, like a burning torch
until the day that I finally cross over
...and become one with the earth
my sweet earth..

my own personal purgatory..

this was actually meant to be a serious post, after havin broken up with a really really good friend.. but crap, it seems I underestimated the power of the herb.
That explains the sophisticated words in the post that even I cant make out, and yeah, the unexplained laughter (as my roomies put it)
if you are reading this, know that I have nothing against you.. you are one of the nicest persons I've ever known.. but really, i think you are much much better off without a shithead like me as your friend lol


Wake Up Dead!!

Sunday, August 16

It's essential that I write here occassionally about Megadeth, for many good reasons:

1. They're the best goddamn metal band in the planet
(and a few other planets as well)

2. Dave Mustaine is God. He's just hated profusely cause he's bluntly honest.

3. Megadeth made me the Metalhead that I am today

4. Megadeth are the best metal band out there
(deserves a second mention!)

When I picked up a copy of 'Rust in Peace' at a friend's place many years ago, little did I know that I was holding one of the greatest metal records of all time in my hands.
The song "Tornado of Souls" off that CD was kind of an eye-opener for me. Really, I didnt appreciate the heavier music much until then, but this one kind of grew on me. I still hld this song responsible for giving me the special powers to fly with my head, and to air guitar like a psycho ;)

Well, now to the actual point of this post..

The new Megadeth album is due this September!

Death Magnetic is the new joke! haha..!

This is gonna be Megadeth's 12th studio album and is titled 'Endgame' and is due on september 15th.

You can get a taste of how the new material is gonna sound by listening to this song that has been out for a while now - HeadCrusher

Listen to it once and you'll know the new record is gonna kick some serious ass. The lyrics speak much for themselves, it's about a torture machine used in the medieval ages.
The first half of the song sounds like good old school thrash metal, and the latter half just screams 'Megadeth'! Everytime I listen to this song, I have this violent urge to headbang like crazy! Dammit Mustaine, you just crushed my head!

Personally, I think this is gonna be Megadeth's best work since 1990's Rust in Peace.
