...returning home from work, talkative office types quite evidently heading to the pub, the all drowned in the evening freebie and sometimes purchased newspaper types hidden behind the paper and rarely letting the bored types get a glimpse of their faces, the ipod/mp3 types nodding and dancing to music and the wanderers staring at the adverts, eyeing people up and down. I often feature in at least three or more of these varieties but it depends on the kind of day I have had or been having.

They're back! You won't believe it unless you see them for yourselves! Timidly and not a little bit fearful, I approached the drummer and founder, Michael and asked him what happened that night fourty years ago. His reply was soft and simple. "We've been playing music with the King. Man he taught us some grooves ain't nobody ever heard before. We found out how to reach into your heart with music. Be a believer man, come see."
And that is all I can tell you. You just have to go see and listen. Then you decide what really happened. Born Again?... (more)
Respondant #1: "No, you're stupid!"
I'm sure you'll agree it's incredibly fascinating stuff.
This is why I normally abstain from discussing politics in a public forum. This is also why I haven't spent a lot of time on Broowaha recently, and why I choose to write about music.
I don't harbor any illusions that anyone has even noticed my absence from Broowaha. As a writer, you like to think that you will receive some helpful instruction about your writing, whether the reader agrees with you or not. Broowaha offered that when I started writing. In recent... (more)

...zig when you thought I would zag, and by the suggestion of a friend of mine from work, I decided to mix it up a little and go family-style with my last review of the 10 Days of Horror. There is something charming about It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Maybe it is the background elevator music, or the poorly drawn backgrounds, or the fact that Charlie Brown gets shit on at every turn. I am not sure the reason, but I have been watching this every Halloween ever since I was a kid, back when it was on CBS every year, and then on DVD for the last few years. There is so much to love...

So cruising along through day seven of the ten and I am starting to get comfortable again. I think that I am starting to realize that older horror movies do not age well. Maybe it is something about the music, the effects, the 70s style porn hair and clothing, but for some reason to me these older movies just do not age well when it comes to the fright factor.

...with these noxious chemicals to kill insects in their own environment, for their own comfort they kill. Wishing those people would have stayed home if they don’t like the outdoors and it’s inhabitants. These same folks stay up late smoking, drinking, listening to their own taste in music and curse the birds in the morning for singing and sun for shining . As for music, yes it is wonderful I love all kinds of music, from opera to hip hop, but I choose when I want to hear it, not when my neighbor decides he wants to hear it, and as loud as he wants so that the windows tremble in...
