Y&T — Hang ‘Em High

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:12 AM (06:12)

Walk like a warrior through the shadows of the night
Shatter the silence with our screams
Like a tiger, move in for the kill
We’re gonna get what we need

We stand together, feel it closing in
Electric shock through our veins
Power of numbers cannot be denied
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Soldier of fortune, always on the run
Your enemy lies within
You must escape from the shackles in your mind
Stand like a warrior and win

Join our ranks, there ain’t no losers here
As long as we never divide
We are a force so strong we never have to run
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Walk like a warrior through the shadows of the night
Shatter the silence with our screams
Power of numbers cannot be denied
Let’s stand up and show how we feel

Hang em high, band together
Hang em high through the night
Hang em high, band together
And we always will survive
Reach for the sky

Twisted Sister — Lookin’ Out For #1

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Media, Principles — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:52 PM (22:52)

They always told me I must try to be
Like everyone in the nation
Go with the flow, remember me is we
There must be no deviation
Well, now I think that I’ll go my own way
I’ve got my own point of view
I just don’t care what other people say
I do what I wanna do

You know that I’m ready
I’m ready to rock
You know that I’m ready
I’m ready to rock
Gonna rock

I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one
I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one
I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one
I’m lookin’ out for number one / number one

The time has come for you to make a stand
You’ve got to do things your own way
Forget about the style, forget the brand
‘Cause every dog has his own day
It doesn’t matter what the others think
What counts is do you like you?
You think you’re drownin’ but you’ll never sink
Just do what you wanna do

You better get ready, get ready to rock
You better get ready, get ready to rock
Gotta rock

You know that we’re ready, we’re ready to rock
You know that we’re ready, we’re ready to rock
Gonna rock

We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for number one / number one
We’re lookin’ out for, out for number one
Yeah

Twisted Sister — I Am (I’m Me)

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Principles — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 10:25 PM (22:25)

Who are you to look down
At what I believe?
I’m on to your thinking
And how you deceive
Well, you can’t abuse me
I won’t stand no more
Yes, I know the reasons
Yes, I know the score

I am, and I’ll be
I will, you’ll see
I am, and I’ll be
I am, I’m me

How I tried to please you
Live the way you said
Do the things that you do
Like the living dead
Then the truth it hit me
Got me off my knees
It’s my life I’m living
I’ll live as I please

I am, and I’ll be
I will, you’ll see
I am, and I’ll be
I am, I’m me

Now’s the time to stand tall
Start your life anew
Freedom lies in your heart
Now’s the time for you

I am, and I’ll be
I will, you’ll see
I am, and I’ll be
I am, I’m me

I am, I’m me
I am, I’m me
Can’t you see? Can’t you see?
I’m me, I’m me, me, me, me, me
I am I’m me
I am I’m me
Can’t you see?, can’t you see?
I’m me, I’m me, I’m me
I am, I’m me
I am, I’m me
Can’t you see that I’m me
I’m me, I’m me, look at me
I am, I’m me
I am, I’m me

Ozzy Osbourne — Crazy Babies

Filed under: entertainment, Fun, Listening, Media, Viewing — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:43 PM (23:43)

Crazy . . . Babies . . .

Crazy babies never say die
Born to live on a permanent high,
Flying high above the world below,
They’d better come down soon
Or everyone will know
Just why

Nobody’s gonna change them, change them,
They’ve gone over the top
Nobody’s gonna tame them, tame them,
They’re never gonna stop

Walk that walk, ooooo
Talk that talk, ooooo
Walk that walk, ooooo
Talk that talk, ooooo

Crazy . . . Babies . . .

When they were born
They were born to be wild
Some say I’m another Devil’s child
Crazy babies in a world of their own,
I am a crazy babe,
So you’d better leave me alone tonight

Nobody’s gonna change me, change me
I’m gonna do this ’til I die,
Nobody’s gonna tame me, tame me,
So you better not try

Walk that walk, ooooo
Talk that talk, ooooo
Walk that walk, ooooo
Talk that talk, ooooo

Crazy . . . Babies . . .

No use talking ’bout if they’ll last,
Where they’re goin’
Or about their past
They’re just the result of our society,
So frustrated
Just like you and me
That’s right

Nobody’s gonna change them, change them,
They’ve gone over the top
Nobody’s gonna tame them, tame them,
They’re never gonna stop

Walk that walk,
Talk that talk,
Walk that walk,
Talk that talk

Gator vs. Pickup Truck

Filed under: Dark Side, entertainment, Fun, Humor, Viewing — mikewb1971 @ 4:19 AM (04:19)

Gator vs. Pickup Truck

or

Another Critter That Just Shouldn’t Be Messed With

This video clip NEVER gets old —

Those who have already installed youtube-dl need only copy and paste the following into their command-line interface for a copy of their very own —

youtube-dl https://youtu.be/ynhumAumc8Q

I first saw this clip on Facebook (no audio on the FB version, apparently), and later tracked it down on YouTube. The YouTube clip is dated 21 May 2015 — over three years ago.

Either way, hats off to this particular gator, who decided that he (?) wasn’t going to take any more nonsense from the guy in the pickup truck.

I just love the way that the gator just lays there in front of the truck, holding the severed bumper cover in its teeth, as if saying to the driver, “You want some more of me, bozo? Bring it and see what happens.”

All the guy had to do was leave the gator alone, and he probably wouldn’t have had the front end of his truck getting tore up. Hope it was worth it.

Larry Correia’s Advice to Writers — It’s Also Valid for Liberty Activists

Filed under: entertainment, Media, Politics, Principles — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 3:11 PM (15:11)

Fantasy writer Larry Correia offers some advice to other writers in a recent Facebook post

Here is a quick object lesson for writers about why you should never ever give a crap what perpetually offended social justice reviewers say about your stuff.

Back in 2011, Mike Kupari and I released a novel called Dead Six. It’s a great book. A thriller with two competing narrators, trying to kill each other.

Well, one of the main bad guys in D6 is this mysterious crime figure known only as Big Eddie. This dude is so dangerous, and involved in so much organized crime, that at the beginning my main character thinks Big Eddie is just a term for a cabal of powerful string pullers. Eddie is just that connected and terrifying.

Only later on, we actually meet Big Eddie. And it turns out that his public persona is as a spoiled rich guy, heir to a big family fortune, and I based him on Carson from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Only deeply disturbed, incredibly violent, and a criminal genius mastermind.

He’s also gay. (In actuality, Eddie’s sexual orientation is Hurt People) but he hams it up in his public persona, as it helps hide his truly dangerous nature.

One of my favorite villains I ever created, really popular among readers, and he’s so over the top that when Bronson Pinchot narrated the audiobook, he told me it was one of the funnest roles he’d ever taken (keeping in mind, he was Serge in Beverly Hills Cop and stole the show from Eddie Murphy when he was at the top of his game). And it got nominated for the Audie for Best Thriller.

But angry Social Justice reviewers screamed at me anyway. Having a crazy bad guy be gay was deeply offensive. Homophobic. Triggered. Hatemongery. You know, all the usual stuff. HOW DARE YOU HAVE AN EVIL PSYCHO BE GAY! REEEEE!

So fast forward to this week, and there’s a petition floating around to force DC to make the Joker gay . . .

Yes . . . The Joker. So if they don’t make this charismatic psychotic criminal mastermind gay . . . Then they’re homophobic.

But when I wrote a charismatic psychotic criminal mastermind as gay, I was homophobic.

Basically, no matter what you do, they’re going to be pissed off. You will never ever make these people happy for long. If you comply with their demands, that’s just showing weakness, and the first time you cross one of their invisible lines, they’ll just start screaming at you again. So remember, just write whatever you want, and the critics can go back to eating Tide Pods.

I’ve experienced this sort of shrieking directed at myself in the libertarian movement, both inside the Libertarian Party and outside of it, as well.

I’ve witnessed this sort of hysteria levelled at others.

When people harangue me with this sort of nonsense, I find it difficult to stay pissed off at them. They’re mostly annoyances in the long run.

As Larry tells writers, don’t worry about your detractors. Any attempt on your part to appease them will fail in the long run — they’ll simply find another reason to stick knives in your back.

When they tell you “YOU CAN’T SAY THAT!” about something you’ve said verbally or written, reply with “What do you mean, I can’t say that? I just did say it.”

When they tell you what sort of rhetorical style to use, respond with “Don’t tell me how to do this — SHOW ME.”

In earlier days (1997-2011), I was producing and hosting a public-access TV show here in Albuquerque titled The Weekly Sedition. Someone told me you can’t be like that on the air.” I replied to that with “Anyone who doesn’t like how we run the show is free to sign up at Channel 27, put their own show on, and show us how it’s done.” I then provided the station’s phone number and physical address, so he would have less of an excuse for non-performance. My detractor backed off almost immediately, saying that he “didn’t intend to offend anyone.”

Ghods, I LOVED doing that show every week.

In short, don’t do a thing to appease the Socialist Just-Us Whiners, because you’ll never appease them for long, and you’ll end up tossing your own soul into the trash bin in the process.

It. Just. Is. Not. Worth. It.

Just do it YOUR WAY, and have fun in the process.
