Hamas Starts Gaza Boy Band

For all you boy band lovers, Hamas has started up a boy band named “The Protectors of the Homeland” and made up of Hamas gunmen.  Sounds appealing – doesn’t it?  As for the lyrics…

…the Protectors will sing about dead terrorists, Islamic values and gaining control of Palestine from the Jews.

Isn’t that fabulous – not! You can read the whole story at Assist News

(I haven’t heard their music and don’t want to either.  I may love music, but I think I’ll be leaving this stuff alone.  So no music vids wil be posted in future, sorry 🙂 )

This would sum up many girls today

I was thinking about a previous post I wrote. So much is being taken away from children these days. Girls don’t get much of a chance to just be girls and not worry about the teenage pressures till they get to that age. Pressures to conform and look/act older than they are, are coming from everywhich way. While parents are busy keeping up with the Jones’, kids are expected to keep up as well. We are sucked in by media advertising all to readily. The glossy junk-mail that we wish wasn’t so frequent beckons us to take a look and view the great bargains – the things kids don’t need yet – if ever! – but must have now because that’s what the shops are selling and that’s what everyone else is buying for their kids. The reality is that it will go beyond materialistic things that we can buy to the things that money can’t buy unless we earn a Brittney Spears salary (and I have no idea what she earns). It will include things like wanting to be thinner, have a different body shape, different nose, perfect skin… maybe less mirrors in the house could be a start. And less magazines of people that in one issue look like they have it all, but in the next issue: She tells all: her anxieties exclusively revealed! In the end nobody is perfect. We don’t need to try and make our kids perfect by keeping them up to date with what ever the latest fashion might be. Little girls have pretty ears without the need for earrings (pierced ears do absolutely nothing for little girls, or boys for that matter!). They will thank us later for boundaries and rules eg not till you’re 15. And we just need to communicate more positive words by telling our kids they are beautiful no matter what everyone else in society might be saying. The following vid is good and the lyrics below sum it all up.


BeautifulDisaster – Jon Mclaughlin

She loves her mama’s lemonade
And hates the sound that goodbye’s make
She prays one day she’ll find someone to need her

She swears that there’s no difference
Between the lies and compliments
It’s all the same if everybody leaves her

And every magazine tells her she’s not good enough
The pictures that she sees make her cry

She would change everything, everything, just ask her
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She’s given boys what they want
And tries to act nonchalant
Afraid they’ll see that she’s lost her direction

She never stays the same for long
Assuming that she’ll get it wrong
Perfect only in her imperfection

She’s not a drama queen
She doesn’t want to feel this way
Only 17 but tired

She would change everything, for happy ever after
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She’s just the way she is but no one’s told her that’s okay

She would change everything, everything, just ask her
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster

She would change everything, for happy ever after
Caught in the in-between a beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home
She just needs someone to take her home

Music Vid for 2008 Olympics titled: Hero

Chinese singer You Hongming was at Beijing Forestry University Gymnasium in Beijing Wednesday to shoot the music video for the Olympic Song “Hero.””Hero” tells the moving story of the Tanzanian runner John Steven Akhwari,who finished in last place at the 1968 Olympic Marathon. During the race, Akhwari fell, dislocating a knee joint, but he continued running and never quit. This hero will also be participating in the music video for “Hero.”

You can read more about this story and other exciting Olympic news at the Official 2008 Olympic website 🙂

In the midst of war the world’s bravest orchestra plays on

The Epoch times has this very interesting story on the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra.  After reading what they are going through, I think they would be worth hearing, because they have perserved no matter what.

I’VE FOUND THE CURE FOR MONDAYITIS (or for Anyitis for that matter)

It’s all in the voice (any man who can reach such high notes is a legend) It’s all good! 🙂

it’s been a wee while so how about some music…

after all a blog would be a dull world without any 🙂


Farewell from ILMTW

For various reasons, I have decided not to post anymore on this site 😦 (I may or may not blog somewhere else in the future.)

ScrubOne seems to be doing a good job with his blogging; people reading his posts and linking to them. That’s great. And obviously this site wont fall off the edge of the world when I stop blogging…

I was never out to get lots of people reading my posts.  I rarely read other blogs and didn’t link to much other than music most of the the time.  My aim towards the end was to make every post count. It was not any easy task.  Making anything count in life isn’t always easy.  But it is worth it at the end of the day.  And that’s what I would like to leave with you:

WHAT EVER YOU DO IN LIFE, MAKE IT COUNT.

  1. Don’t come to the end of the day wishing, if only. Make the most of each day.
  2. Open your mouth as often as you can and make some noise. Speak out for those who can’t speak for them selves. Get out and support such groups as Right For Life, Family First and the SPCA (just to name a few).
  3. Give generously to these organisations. Don’t let it be: what can I get out of life? but rather: What can I give out of my own abundance?
  4. Take time each day to be real with someone else (eg spouse) about how you are feeling. Don’t let any sort of pain you are feeling/battling with fester away. It does help to talk.
  5. Get on top of issues you have been meaning to deal with NOW!!
  6. Don’t let the sun go down on your anger.  Resolve issues with others before you go to sleep.
  7. Don’t be tempted to buy those retched women’s magazines. You can do better than that. Ignore the stories about so-and-so celebrities and tell yourself: we are all the same: we all have imperfections; we all have faults; we are only as young as we feel; we are all beautiful (or handsome).

So, that’s about it from me.  I have enjoyed my time blogging.  Now I hope to make more of an impact in other ways. So for any of you who enjoyed the music I posted or linked to (I certainly enjoyed it) here is one more:
