“Feeling Like A Freak On A Leash…”

“…((You Wanna See The Light))…

Feeling Like I Have No Release

…((So Do I))…

How Many Times Have I Felt Diseased?…

…((You Wanna See The Light))…

Nothing In My Life Is Free

Is Free…”

“…Sometimes I Cannot Take This Place

Sometimes It’s My Life I Cant Taste

Sometimes I Cannot Feel My Face

Youll Never See Me Fall From Grace…”

“…Something Takes A Part Of Me

You And I Were Meant To Be

A Cheap Fu*k For Me To Lay

Something Takes A Part Of Me. …”

What Can I Tell You About This Song…

FREAK ON A LEASH

by KORN

???

Hmm.

Well.

Hmm.

I Suppose I Can’t Really Say To Much.

This Is An Instance Where It’s Best If I Keep My Mouth Shut.

BUT…

FREAK ON A LEASH

…Is A Very Awesome…

…Very Special Song In My World.

It Holds So Much Of A Deeper Meaning.

And, Honestly, I’d Love To Say A Whole Lot Right Now.

But, I’m Holding Back Because I Don’t Think It Would Be Taken Tooooo Well.

I’ve Been A Huge Fan Of This Song Since I First Saw The Music Video In 1999, While I Was In The Navy.

Upon Hearing It Back Then, I Was An Instant Fan.

Period.

Sooo…

…Today I’m Sharing It With Y’all.

I Know, I Know…

…The Band KORN Isn’t Everyone’s Cup-O-Tea.

Then Again, A Lot Of The Music I Write About Isn’t For Everyone.

There Are Likely More People Whom Hate This Song Than I Really Realize.

But, For Now, I Don’t Care.

I Had To Get This Song Out Of My Head, As I’ve Been Listening To It A LOT A LOT Over The Past Two-Weeks.

And You Know Me…

…I Get Things Out Of My Head By Way Of My Bloggin’ing.

So…

…Here I Am…

…Bloggin’ing ’bout It.

I Sure Hope This Works, To Be Honest.

Perhaps It Will.

Perhaps It Won’t.

But, I’m Still Trying.

That’s All One Can Really Do, Right?!

Try Try TRY AGAIN!!!

We Shall See, My Peeps.

We Shall See, Indeed.

πŸ˜€

PLEASE Have A Damned Decent Day.

And, I Sure Hope Y’all Have A Wonderful Weekend!!!

L8r L8r, My Tater-Tots!!!

So... Are YOU Jivin Me -questionmark-

So… I Was Informed Last Night That The Only Time I Ramblel Is When I’m Ill…

…And I Suppose I Can Agree With That.

I Do Tend To Ramble And Prattle-On When I Don’t Feel Great.

Sue Me.

My Bad.

BUT…

…Today Came Rather Early, My Peeps.

I Was Up And At ‘Em Before 3AM’ish.

I HATE Being Awake Whilst The World Sleeps.

Makes Me Feel Odd.

Makes Me Feel Like A Failure At Just One More Thing In Life.

Can’t Do Anything Else Right…

…So Why Should My Sleep/Wake-Cycle Be An Different.

I Remember Working “The Night Shift” While In The Navy.

I LOVED IT!

Of Course, My Hours Were Longer Than Everyone Else’s.

They All Worked 0700 To 1900 (7AM To 7PM).

I…

…Along With My Elder Namesake….

…Worked 1800 To 0900 (6PM To 9AM).

Talk About A Bummer OfΒ  A Deal…

…Yet We Were Very VERY Willing To Work The Extra Hours.

You See…

…”The Night Shift” Had One Amazing Quality…

…NO SUPERVISORS.

NO BOSSES Standing Over My Shoulder…

…Criticizing Each And Every Thing I Did.

NO BOSSES To Tell Me What To Do…

…When To Do It…

…How To Do It…

…Etc Etc.

It Was Peaceful.

It Was Painless.

It Was Worth The 15-Hour Shifts.

Who Cares How Long You Work Whilst At Sea?!

EXACTLY, Mr Peeps!

Who Gives A Shit!?!

You Can’t Go Anywhere.

You’re Surrounded By The Sea…

…Or The Ocean…

…Or Wherever We Were At The Time.

I Had To Be There One-Hour Before Everyone Else Got Off Work So I Could Get The “Turn-Over” From My Fellow Journalist Shipmates.

And Then I Couldn’t Leave Until 9AM Because Of “Happy Hour” Which Meant We Had To Clean The Ship For An Hour Each Morning.

I Got Yelled-At Many A Time For Ducking-Out Early And Going To Bed.

No…

…I Was Not A Model Sailor.

I Was A Helluva Journalist…

…Just Not A Sailor.

I Think I’ve Discussed That Before, So I Won’t Go Into It.

I Just Remember Being Told And Told Over And Over Again…

Brad, You Do A Great Job At This And That, But You’re Not Being A Team-Player, Nor Are You Fulfilling Your Duties As A Sailor On-Board This Ship. Straighten-Up, Fly Right, Or Get Burned.

Or Something To That Effect.

And Boy Oh Boy Did They Ever Burn Me!

((hahahaahaha))

Oh, Memories.

Why Must You Be So Vivid?!

Sheesh.

😐

This Is Turning Into A Ramble, Isn’t It?!

SEE!!

I Knew It Would.

I Could Ramble For Days-On-End About The Navy And My Experiences.

Slowly, But Surely, They All Come Back To Me.

They Float To The Surface, So To Speak.

In The End, I Came To Hate Hate HATE My Time In The Navy.

And That’s Sad To Me.

I LOVED The Navy.

I LOVED My Peers And Especially My Friends.

It Was My “Superiors” That Were Intolerable.

Little People Trying To Fill Big Shoes, Ya Know?!

People Whom Were Only In-Charged Because Of Their Time And Rank.

Had They Not Hated Me So Much…

…Honestly…

…I’d Likely Still Be In The Navy.

I Could Have Handled Anything Thrown At Me Had I Had Bosses Whom Were Worth A Shit.

But They Weren’t.

So I’m Not.

Plain And Simple.

ANYWAY…

…I Shall End This Ramble, Here.

Y’all Take Care, Please.

And Be Good When Possible.

I Know…

…It Ain’t Easy.

Hell…

…What In Life Ever Is?

Exactly, My Peeps, Exactly.

Have A Damned Decent Day, Kiddies.

I’m Going To Try Doing The Same.

PEACE, Y’all!!!

What’s On NOW?!: “RAVENOUS” (1999)

This Flm…

RAVENOUS

…Was The Barer Of TWO Distinct Taglines That Both Together Entirely Sum-Up This Little 1999 Gem Of A Horror/Suspense/Thriller Flick.

1ST: "YOU ARE WHO YOU EAT"

…and…

2ND: "SURVIVAL IS THE ONLY OPTION"

πŸ˜€

Starring…

GUY PEARCE

&

ROBERT CARLYLE

&

JEFFREY JONES

&

DAVID ARQUETTE

…This Film Follows The Exploits Of The Inhabitants Of An Isolated Military Outpost In The California Wilderness.

Things Are Simple Here At Fort Spencer.

Quiet.

COLD.

That Is Until A Stranger Arrives With An Almost Unbelievable Story About His Wagon-Train Being Lost In The Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Eventually, He’ll Tell Of The Unspeakable…

…That The Members Of His Wagon-Train-Party Had To Turn To Cannibalism Just To Survive The Harsh Winter.

Once The Men Of Fort Spencer Head Outward Into The Wild To Try Finding This Ill-Fated Group Of Weary Travelers…

…It Becomes Very Apparent That They’ve Bitten-Off More Than They Can Chew.

(pun VERY MUCH intended, my peeps)

Men Start Dying Off Left And Right, And It Quickly Becomes A Game Of Pure Survival!

πŸ˜€

Now You Know Me, My Peeps.

You Know I Simply Cannot Stand Spoilers.

So I’m Not Going To Spoil This One For You.

HOWEVER…

…Since It Is The Witching Season, With Halloween Just Weeks Away…

…I’m Quietly Letting Y’all Know…

RAVENOUS

…Is Simply A Film That Got A Bum-Rep When It Premiered In 1999.

It Cost Just Over $12Million To Make…

…Yet Barely Made More Than $2Million At The Box-Office.

In Other Words…

…It Was A HUGE Flop.

And That Makes Me Sad, Yo.

It’s Actually Quite A Fun Little Horror Flick.

Is It The Best Flick Ever?

No.

Is It The Best Flick To Come-Out In 1999?

No.

Is It A Flick Totally Worthy Of Your Viewing?

Yes.

If You’re Looking For Something Fun…

…Something That’s Supposed To Be A Classic Horror Flick But Really Ends-Up Feeling More Like A Dark Comedy…

…Then You Seriously Could Do A Lot Worse Than…

RAVENOUS

…Fo SHO Fo SHO, My Peeps!!!

πŸ˜€

So Why Not Give It A Go, Yo?!

The Only Thing You’re Really Giving-Up Is A Little Less Than 2-Hours Of Your Life.

Who Knows

You Might Just Like It!

I Sure Did.

And I Hope You Do, Also.

The Song Stuck In My Head: “I WANNA GO BACK” by EDDIE MONEY (1986)

I…

…Was Listenin’ To The Radio…

…I Heard A Song…

…Remindin’ Me Of Long Ago…

…Back Then I Thought…

…That Things Were Never Gonna Change…

…It Used To Be…

…That I Never Had To Feel The Pain…

…I Know Now…

…That Things Will Never Be The Same Now…

… … …

I WANNA GO BACKWas A Hit Single For EDDIE MONEY In 1986

… … …

…I WANNA GO BACK…

…And Do It All Over…

…But I Can’t Go Back…

…I Know…

…I WANNA GO BACK…

…’Cause I’m Feelin’ So Much Older…

…But I Can’t Go Back…

…I Know…

…Oh No. …

… … …

I WANNA GO BACKIs Also Included On EDDIE MONEY‘s Greatest Hits AlbumSOUND OF MONEY

<><><><>….<><><><>….<><><><>

<><><><><><>

<><><>

I’m Gonna Warn You Now, My Peeps…

…This Song…

I WANNA GO BACK

by EDDIE MONEY

…Is Irritatingly Infectious.

.Period.

It’s One Of Those Songs You Hear And You’re Like…

"Oh Jeez! It's That Damned EDDIE MONEY Song! I'll Be Humming It For A Frickin' WEEK!"

And That Would Be A Very True Assessment Of The Situation.

Don’t Get Me Wrong…

…I Consider EDDIE MONEY To Be One Of My Personal Guilty Pleasures.

I Don’t Know A Lot Of Folks Who Like/Enjoy His Music, These Days.

I Do Remember Being In BREMERTON, WASHINGTON In 1999 When EDDIE MONEY Had A Concert There For The Sailors.

Tickets For The Event???

$1

.Period.

That’s Right, My Peeps.

A LIVE EDDIE MONEY CONCERT…

…For $1.

We Even Had A Little Song Going Around.

"I'VE GOT TWO-TICKETS FOR TWO-BUCKS..."

Oh Yeah…

…We’re Talking HIGH CLASS, Fo SHO!

Anyway…

…I Heard This Little Number…

I WANNA GO BACK

…During My Morning Walk.

I’m Sorry To Say It…

…But I Have Yet To Expel It From My Conscious Mind.

πŸ˜•

ALLLLLLL DAAAAAAAY LOOOOOOONG…

…I’ve Been Walking About The House Singing It To Myself.

Sometimes Out-Loud…

…Sometimes It’s Part Of My Inner-Dialogue.

Regardless Of How It’s Happening…

…The Point Is…

…IT’S HAPPENING!!!

EDDIE MONEY

…Is…

…TRULY…

…MADLY…

…DEEPLY…

…STUCK IN MY HEAD!!!

However…

…I Ain’t Gonna Bitch About It Tooooooo Much.

I Mean, Who Would Listen?

And Even If I Found Someone To Listen…

…Would They Give A Rats Ass???

NOPE.

NOT. AT. ALL. FO. SHO.

They Just Wouldn’t Want Me Singing It While I Was In Their Presence.

WHY?!?

Because, My Silly Peeps, Then THEY Would Start SINGING ALONG TOO!!!

Like I Said…

…It’s Irritatingly Infectious.

Lucky For Me, Though…

…I Do So Enjoy Some EDDIE MONEY From Time To Time.

Today…

…It’s Simply Being Forced Upon Me…

…By Me!

When There’s No-One To Blame But One’s Self…

…All You Can Do Is Stay Calm…

…Stay Cool…

…And Enjoy It While It Lasts.

Then You Just Pray It Doesn’t Last Tooo Damned Looong.

πŸ˜‰

Am I Right, My Peeps?!?

I’m Pretty Sure I’m Right.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

Nevertheless, I Thought It Was A Cool Photo To Share With Y’all.

Hope Ya Dig It, My Peeps!
