Let's finish the decade with some Winter Winds

These are the lyrics from the recently released Mumford & Sons song Winter Winds.

As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
Oh the warmth in your eyes swept me into your arms
Was it love or fear of the cold that led us through the night?
For every kiss your beauty trumped my doubt

Simply beautiful..

Happy New Year! :)

Pacifism & R'n'B - Edwin Starr

The link below is for a scene in Rush Hour.

Some old school R'n'B with the lyrics of a pacifist; it's great.

The City's Hidden Reality

I love the dusty lights. I love the dirty pavements. I love the bustling streets and the bilingual slang. I love the fast pace. I love the arrogant place. I love the liberal feel and the progressive thought. This city is the heart of England, where there is a beat. Since a boy I travelled through the underground passages and saw the artistic views and structures. With progression of understanding, I noticed certain hidden realities. The lavished houses of Bond Street might as well be paved with gold and red carpet painted on to show their pretence. Upon the door step I see the homeless juxta posed against wealth. The hidden reality is the story of their placement upon that door step. Suddenly I have the realisation! The assumption that the homeless will wake up in the morning, surely just because their eyes are shut does not mean they are asleep.

D'accord, aussi- Has evolution led to mans sadness? And furthermore intelligence will lead to self annihilation?

Roundhouse Antics

Last night at the Roundhouse Camden, I witnessed jazz improv fused with imaginative spoken word. T'was a beautiful sight.
And well done Zissou bunny :)

I also have a new found love for nature; love the grass!

The Procession: The weight of the world

I’m playing with my pack of cards
Counting the number of hearts
Forgetting the past is proving to be hard
Laying still, waiting for the cart

I put my pack of cards in a box
And throw them violently to the sea
Drowning in radiant blonde locks
As well as chucking away the key

Black ties and white roses
Rest in peace he proposes
The box with no key
Buried under the ground not the sea

City of Hoax- New song

My latest song "City of Hoax" is now up on my myspace.

It was recorded last saturday and also written on the day aswell. Sometimes during the week i like certain words, recently i grew to the word Hoax. I was meaning to write a song around this word, so when my friend show me a chord progression he had been working on, i decided it would be this song. Quite a lot of the time i write about stuff that annoys me (injustice), luckily hoax was a word i could relate a story to, which made writing the lyrics natural. Obviously everyone can have their own interpretation to the song, but i think it has a fairly clear plot to it.

Hope you enjoy!

The Empathetic Mind -Poetry

Enjoy :) - have your own interpretation...

My mind of illogical irrelevance is not my own choice.The understanding of everything is the perfection within me, without this knowing, lack of solution is my imperfection. As I write the imagination sings; I am out of tune with others, when I think others see me as foreign yet I am dark matter. Nobody knows; can see my reflection is quirky. The impulses are none but obsessive. This thought I cannot distinguish between the tongue, this is just the way I am.

Why does the grass not reflect green in my eyes?
Why does the sun shine grey?
Why did that voice mean nothing?

The theories are my laws, my way of living.My normal is everything else; it is the mirror that is broken and separated. This is the only feeling I understand. Life for me has no face; I just drive along the straight high road. People wave eagerly, some offer to pay for my journey. As much as I am not abstract, I only want one thing.

An intersting Prediction

I was told about an interesting sort of theory, about the future and prospects of human life. As it is becoming evident humans are becoming more and more reliant on technology, and in the next hundred years or so we might become nearly fully reliant, also everything will be globally connected. So what if a virus was to toally destroy the one thing we humans would rely on totally. Chaos? Panic? Destruction? War?
Quite a negative thought but none the less, inetersting.
Although as the past has shown humans adapt to whatever is thrown at them.
