Two Heads Are Better Than One...
I've been thinking a lot about Egypt.
I've been thinking a lot about the punk rock ethos. I've taken hits for it before, but fuck it, shit doesn't get done without it. That's what's happening in Egypt right now - out with the old, in with the new, and the we're not going to take it anymore attitude will prevail.
The mob rules. It always will.
If you do not give it to us, we're gonna take it.
And they're taking it. Obviously.
My life pales in comparison to this plight. I'm jittery. I'm sad. I'm trying not to hurt people and at the same time trying to woo others.
To what end?
I sit here in Brooklyn, NY - USA and listen to podcasts, and music and I'm actually able to take photographs of myself to post here. Whilst drinking wine, and talking to friends and wishing that I was somewhere else, with someone else, but never in fear of bombs or the Police.
Remind yourself of that. Often. Me. You.
It's really fucked up out there...
We don't have it so bad at all. Grab someone you love and kiss them.
It might mean nothing, something, everything.
Take your last breath...
I do often.
