SOOTHES SAVAGE BEAST, ETC.

Even the crunch from an especially good Rage Against the Machine song can relieve inner tension -- though it's candidly better to listen to, say, some "Day Dreaming" from Aretha when a psychotic break draws near.

Damn the psychosis! Full volume ahead! Even -- or especially -- if you're old and convinced that life is over because you have used up your pitiful portion of talent, you should listen to (besides Aretha):
Tanis
Lynam

Mighty "O"
OutKast

Ridin'
Chamillionaire & Krayzie Bone

I Write Sins Not Tragedies
Panic! At The Disco

Under Pressure
Queen & David Bowie

How To Save A Life
The Fray

Easy Livin'
Uriah Heep

Sucked Out
Superdrag

La Pump
Smoosh

Vicarious
Tool

Bulls on Parade
Rage Against the Machine
Rally 'round the family. Pocket full of shells.

Back in my skull-stomping days my fraternity had a house band that played Rage. They had just gotten back from a semester over seas and discovered Rage Against the Machine.

Some of those that were in forces
Are the same that burn crosses.

(same idea that Oliver Stone put out in Natural Born Killers, a movie that was largely misunderstood because it was much before it's time.)

Can't wait for Rock Fest with Rob Zombie next month.

Until next time,
Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me.

I'd have gone with Uriah Heep's "Simon The Bullet Freak", personally...
