“Kick, Push II”

Look at what we did, came a long way from Dirty Ghetto Kids (Uh, yeah)
Look at what we did, came a long way from Dirty Ghetto Kids (Yeah)
You know what it is (Haha, uh, uh, come on)
When the cops didn’t find him for grindin’ though
They kinda blew the vibe, figured it was time to go
Plus, he had to at home a long time ago
And he had made like ten dollars off the sign he wrote
It read: “A little hungry, and need a little money, it’s for my little sister, and her little tummy.”
Wasn’t lyin’ though didn’t go buy hydro
Went to the restaurant and bought two gyros
‘Cause he knew they wasn’t cooking where he lived
Da-kook-akook-akook’s now took him to the crib
A little hurt from the rail he took into the ribs
Right bast the pushers who couldn’t underdig
“What’s the use of pushin’ if you ain’t pushin’ none of this”
If i kick with y’all I’m just pushin’ for a bit
But, what was on his mind had pushed him to the lid
They best customer wasn’t cooking for a kid
Yes sir

So he kick, push
Over his shoulders he swore he’d never look
‘Cause wasn’t nothin’ back there but the blackness
Life wasn’t too attractive (Yeah, uh)
And so he kick, push
Over his shoulders he swore he’d never look
‘Cause wasn’t nothin’ back there but the blackness
Life wasn’t too attractive (yeah)

You see his mom was a crackhead and his father couldn’t be contacted
He lived with being different, was combated
Amongst the other things on his young, black head
And see, his girl was a white girl
But, just cause she was white, see her life wasn’t light-world
She, too had the drama thick
Had a daddy and a momma, but her daddy used to momma hit
Daddy caught something, chasing fatties made her momma sick
Couldn’t afford the medicine, pimped it to the pharmacist
As suicidal feelings would rise, switch over to transitions, helped her conquer it
Pays for her momma’s pills with a sponsership
A cell phone bill and a Honda kit Uh-huh
And that’s why she skates with him
Someone to feel her pain and her place to be

That’s why, that’s why, that’s why she kick, push
Over her shoulders she swore she’d never look
‘Cause wasn’t nothin’ back there but the blackness
Life wasn’t too attractive (Yeah, uh)
That’s why she kick, push
Over his shoulders she swore she’d never look
‘Cause wasn’t nothin’ back there but the blackness
Life wasn’t too attractive (yeah)

A traveling band of misfits and outcasts
Knock their heads from Misfits to Outkast
A lot of scars, they did this without pads
A lot of hearts, who did this without dads
One’s father was fithy rich, two was middle class, and one was homeless
Add in a paralyzed girl in a wheelchair who just liked to watch it, that was the whole clique
I think about it everytime I see this old flick
That was taken in the park, in front of this old bench
They wrote on the back, “You thank for push, kick, hope you make a video, the beat is so sick.”
Well, I did, I hope you seen it It’s on MTV, Soundtrakk’s a genius
Love from Tony Hawk, beat from the Ice Creamer’s
Before we out it out had to pay the fillipinas
Just to show ’em how…

You kick, push
Over your shoulders you swore you’d never look
‘Cause wasn’t nothin’ back there but the blackness
Life wasn’t too attractive (Yeah, uh)
That’s why you kick, push
Over your shoulders you swore you’d never look
‘Cause wasn’t nothin’ back there but the blackness
Life wasn’t too attractive (yeah)

“American Terrorist”

Close your mind
close your eyes
see with your heart
how do you forgive the murderer of your father?
the ink of a scholar is worth a thousand times more than the blood of a martyr

we came through the storm nooses on our necks
and a smallpox blanket to keep us warm
on a 747 on the pentagon lawn
wake up the alarm clock is connected to a bomb
anthrax lab on a w. Virginia farm
shorty ain’t learned to walk already heavily armed
civilians and little children is especially harmed
camouflaged Torahs, Bibles and glorious qurans
the books that take you to heaven and let you meet the Lord there
have become misinterpreted, reasons for warfare
we read ’em with blind eyes I guarantee you there’s more there
the rich must be blind because they didn’t see the poor there
need to open up a park, just close 10 schools
we don’t need ’em
can you please call the fire department they’re down here marching for freedom
burn down their TV’s, turn their TV’s on to teach ’em

The more money that they make
the more money that they make
the better and better they live
whatever they wanna take
whatever they wanna take
whatever whatever it is
the more that you wanna learn
the more that you try to learn
the better and better it gets
American Terrorist
(Terror)

now the poor klu klux man see that we’re all brothers not because things are the same because we lack the same
color that’s green, now that’s mean
cant burn his cross cause he can’t afford the gasoline
now if a Muslim woman strapped with a bomb on a bus
with the seconds running give you the jitters?
just imagine an American-based Christian organization planning to poison water supplies to bring the second-coming quicker
nigga they ain’t living properly
break ’em off a little democracy
turn their whole culture to a mockery
give ’em Coca-Cola for their property
give ’em gum, give ’em guns, get ’em young, give ’em fun
if they ain’t giving it up, then they ain’t getting none and don’t give ’em all naw, man, just give ’em some its
the paper, some of these cops must be al-qaeda

It’s like
don’t give the black man food, give red man liquor
red man fool, black man nigga
give yellow man tool, make him railroad boulder
also give him pan, make him pull gold from river give black man crack, glocks and things, give red man
craps, slot machines…

Holidays, Work, Vettiness… Free…

I’ve had absolutely no time to blog at all, largely due to my exams; the
toughest and the osi-est till date with last minute slogging getting me
through again. Worstu. Gethu. Free. But as soon as I was like free once the
exams were over, I’m now stuck with this project at IIT on which I’m supposed to
work from 9 to 6 everyday, 9 to 6!?! It is just not possible man, not even close
to being possible! Free.. But thankfully there’s nobody to supervise me so the usual
vettiness and bunking ensures :).

Anyway it is fucking awful when all your friends are vetti and enjoying while you
are stuck with something you don’t wanna be a part of. The worst part is,
people talk of getting the shit bored out of them during the holidays with
nothing to do. Oh how I wish I had all their free time!!? I had so much
planned for my holidays, all of which I will have to postpone now. Worstu. Free.

I am so pissed off that the next person who’s totally vetti tells me he’s
bored as a result of having nothing to do, is gonna get punched in his face!
For free’s sake start enjoying the vetti times because well there’s nothing
more awesome than being vetti, and let me asssure you the vetti times are not
here to stay. The age of vettiness will eventually pass and we are going to miss it
like hell. I guess everyone has their own interests and passions, the stuff
that they love doing and for people in my age group this is probably the only
time in life where we can indulge in the things that we love and have an
absolutely awesome time!

Younger = Less Independence, Little Cohesiveness of Thought. Worstu.
Older = Work, Stupid Work, More Work, No Time, More Resposibilities. Worstestu.
Now = The Perfect Time to whatever you have ever wanted to do. Gethu.

I cannot put it more clearer than that.

I just hope people realise that college times is kinda the golden era of our
lives; agreed college and classes suck but work is like pathetic, specially
when you are going to work just for the money with no interest or passion for
what you are doing which is what most people invariable end up with!! So for
free’s sake, stop complaining that you have nothing to do; Think of something
that is fun and interesting and have fun. Worstu Floos..

Free..

PS-

Knowing the people who read my blog, I am sure most of you guys after reading
this will be like ” Free..”. Free.. And when eventually I get a message from
someone ” Machan, worstu vetti.. Boring… What plans? ” There’s just nothing
like replying with a “Vetti.. Free..”

Free..

I can say with a big smile on my face that I’ve not felt bored for a really long time now. I guess it’s all about having a lot of interests and being passionate about them and doing the things that you love most of the time. Of course Boredom is a part of life but it has become so small and insignificant that it’s almost non-existent these days for me. I recently stumbled upon a friend who said that we’ve tried and have done everything that we can possibly do and there’s nothing left in this world that is exciting. I couldn’t disagree with him more. Free floos! Free.. And why is it that as I get older, I see more and more guys desperately looking for a girlfriend, purely for timepass and kadalai.What desparations and mana varuthams!! Worstu Kadala Floos! Free..

ω Centauri

I finally saw something that is not just another star in the sky, I got to see Omega Centauri :D. Woot! ω Centauri is 15,800 light-years away for free’s sake!!

Even though it is supposed to be visible to the naked eye, it fades away in the glare of all our light pollution. But it is amazing that my Binoculars is good enough to show me deep sky objects considering the fact that I bought it in China Town, KL :).

Ah, How I wish I had a scope?!

Zeitgeist

I just finished watching Zeitgeist, the Movie and it was pretty awesome! It beautifully talks about how fake everything in the world is, that nothing is real, that everything is fucked up.

There are numerous scenes from the movie Network (1976) which were the highlights of the film for me, the things that guy said, absolutely awesome! I cannot believe that I haven’t bothered to watch this amazing movie that has been lying around in my hard disk for ages!!!

Anyway, One has to realize how prejudiced each and everyone is; I believe that all religions in the world are bullshit and the movie says so, I applaud it and accept its view without any resistance whatsoever. It then goes on to say that the 9/11 was an inside job and that all the world’s a stage, and is controlled by a few fucked up retarded motherfuckers, but then this time I ‘m not so open to accept all the brainwash that the movie really is because there’s a hint of doubt in me, as to whether everything is really the conspiracy as show in the movie.

Ah, the human mind, how it clings on to even the smallest piece of evidence in favor of some belief and reinforces it; how it manages to zero in on the most trivial piece of argument against something it doesn’t want to believe so that it can go on thinking that it has been right all along.

Once the movie was over, I instantly remember Morgan Freeman saying this in Se7en –

” “The world is a fine place and worth fighting for.” I agree with the second part. “

The main fucked up part about this otherwise brilliantly done movie was how one sided it was, it was all so so brainwash-y that you didn’t wanna believe whatever the narrator was saying because the other side was given no chance whatsoever to explain their side of the story. For a movie claiming to free the world from all the bullshit, it does a bad job of trying to force all the shit onto you in a couple of hours!

I am reminded of another conspiracy theory that I encountered for the first time a few years ago, The Apollo Moon Landing Hoax Theory . A lot of people still believe that NASA never landed on the moon, and this conspiracy theory was spread across the world through a FOX Channel documentary thing or something in exactly the same way as this movie. I guess if you are one of the believers of the Moon Landing Hoax theory, you will find that documentary as engrossing as I found Zeitgeist. It is, after all a matter of opinion and belief; nothing ever is wrong or right in the world. Anyway, I stumbled upon The Bad Astronomer’s debunking of the Hoax and now I believe that we DID goto the Moon ( and it make s me cry with amazement every time I think about it :)). So all I really wanna say is, unless the conspiracy theorists realize that for thinking people ( for whom they wish to put the point across anyway because the brainwashed ones who never think are fucked up beyond repair ), both sides of the story is necessary to come to a rational conclusion and a biased brainwashed bullshit thing would never get the job done.

I saw this in the comments section of a blog that sums it all up:

I hope that nothing I say ”about this movie” pisses you off. Sure don’t want to have to go and fuck myself. But before I fall into the abyss of groveling agreement, could you help me understand your lead-in sentences? How does the paradox of ”countless of thousands” work itself out? How did you discover the ”hidden knowledge” if it was hidden? Anyway, the movie is a well presented and entertaining theory. Like you my friend, I will not accept it ”as law”. If I did, I might have to tell anyone who didn’t appease my opinion to go F themselves. That’s what Hitler did. But since he was one of the co-stars of the film, I guess its OK. Well, to close, I feel that I must tell you about this group of people out here that actually encourage open discussion. It seems that they have found this thing called ”rational thinking” that has shown absolute truth (not personal truth) to be usually located somewhere in the middle of two heavily debated arguments. Some of them have the audacity to believe that a quickly judged personal truth most often turns out to be a personal deception. But don’t be concerned Nate. Those freaks won’t respond to this post. They’re all out fucking themselves right now. I’ve watched the movie. It’s nice not being a fool any longer. The way to happiness is quite clear… Practically invisible. Real eyes realise real lies.

It has thrills and chills and it’s very The world is like a ride in an amusement park. And when you choose to go on it, you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round. It has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly coloured and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they cobrightly coloured and it’s very loud and it’s fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time and they begin to question, is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, they say, “hey – don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride…” …It’s just a ride. And we can change it anytime we want. It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace.” — The Late Bill Hicks, Comedian

Free Will..

Does free will really exist? Do we do what we do because we wanna do it? Or is everything just fate and predetermined?

What we call chaos is just patterns we haven’t recognized. What we call random is just patterns we cant decipher. What we can’t understand we call nonsense. What we can’t read we call gibberish. There is no free will. There are no variables. There is only the inevitable.
– Chuck Palahniuk

What if time is not straight but instead loops around, what if you have already read this line before and will read this line again, What if there is no past, present or future?

I though about this when I was 14: The Universe probably started with the Big Bang, then through billions of years it’s acceleration is slowly reduced and then The Big Crunch occurs until Everything is contained withing one single point of immense density, and then, a Big Bang occurs yet again and as initial conditions of the Big Bangs are the same everytime they happen, the same stuff happen again and again and again. This cycle loops to eternity, Eternal Recurrence ! To the mind of a 14 year old boy who didn’t even know Calculus or Quantum Mechanics , this was a simple and beautiful Idea :).

Anyway, six to sevens years later, here I am wondering if one can even begin to define Morality and Free Will if the same stuff are looped for all of time.

There are no moral phenomena, only a moral interpretation of phenomena
– Friedrich Nietzsche

There are no Rational Reasons for Morals, Ethics, Rules, Criminals, Prisons, Laws, Regulations, Freedom, Right and Wrong; Hell, There are no Rational Reasons.!!

Time is probably the Grandest Illusion of all.
