  • Chainsaw Rising - A dream of Bruce.

    31 Jan 2009, 19:45 by VampyreAngel

    A bold effort to combine the powers of Ronnie James Dio's songwriting and Bruce Campbell's absolute acting through a slight distortion of Rainbow's album Rising

    1.Cellar Woman

    I don't wanna go
    Something tells me no, no, no, no
    But traces of my hand
    Lead to the cellar and
    Say go, go, go

    Beware of a place
    The smile of Henrietta's rotting face

    I'll never return, how do you know?
    Cellar Woman
    I don't know
    I don't know

    She can eat your head
    First stage of being Dead
    Mine, mine, mine

    Ride the boomstick
    And shoot the dead freak
    You can fly, fly

    Beware of a place
    The smile of Henrietta's rotting face

    I'll never return, how do you know?
    Cellar Woman, well I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know

    Something in the air
    Tells me to beware, no, no, no
    Her teeth are like knives
    She'll eat away your life
    So go, go, go

    Beware of a place
    The smile of Henrietta's rotting face

    I'll never return, how do you know?
    Cellar woman, I don't know
    I don't know
    I don't know
    Hey, I don't know

    2. Run With Bruce

    In the light of the day
    You can hear survivors say
    Was the sound last night the wind?
    Can you feel the change begin?

    By the fall of the snow
    A single soul will go
    The footsteps on the white
    There's an unholy light

    There's a hole in the sky
    Something evil's passing by
    What's to come - when Bruce shoots it dies
    To run from Bruce

    When time makes a turn
    The eyes of one will learn
    That a sound just like the wind
    Only makes the change begin

    By the end of the day
    What's dead walks again
    From things that snap and bite
    An unholy light

    There's a hole in the sky
    Something evil's passing by
    What's to come - when Bruce shoots it dies
    To run from Bruce

    There's a break in the ground
    Like the swirling water's angry as they pull you down

    When the dead walk you go, yeah
    To run with Bruce
    Run with Bruce

    There's a hole in the sky
    Something evil is passing by
    What's to come - when Bruce shoots it dies
    To run from Bruce
    Run with Bruce

    Like a beast in a field
    He knows his fate is sealed
    He runs away from Bruce, oh oooh

    Run with Bruce

    See the break, you know it's the same
    Now it goes
    To run, run, run
    Run, run, run, run

    Run with Bruce
    Run with Bruce
    Run with Bruce
    Run with Bruce
    Run, run, run
    Now we go run, run, run, run
    Run with Bruce
    All right
    Run with Bruce
    Run with Bruce

    3. Boomstick

    If I'm high on a hill
    It'd still been pointing down at me
    What did I do and it aims closer every day to my heart
    If I'm away from home
    And think I'm all alone
    It's there, somewhere
    I look around to see
    And pointing right at me
    It's there, beware!

    Creeping like a hungry cat
    Seen it before
    I know it can mean that

    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck
    The Mighty Boomstick, running after me
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck, yeah

    I could fly to the moon
    But it'd soon find a way to be there
    I never knew that being dead would make Bruce want me Kaboomed

    It wants a souvenir
    To everyone it's clear
    It's hooked - with one shot
    It wants a blown up corpse
    And everybody laughs but not me 'cause I see

    It's creeping like a hungry cat
    I've seen it before
    I know I can mean that

    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck
    The Mighty Boomstick, running after me
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck, yeah
    Oh my
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck
    The Mighty Boomstick, running after me
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck, yeah

    It used to be a gun
    Now it's a moving holy curse
    They seem to believe that
    I'd never escape with my death

    It wants a souvenir
    To everyone it's clear
    It's hooked - with one shot
    It wants a blown up corpse
    And everybody laughs,hah!
    but not me 'cause I see

    It's creeping like a hungry cat
    I've seen it before
    I know it can mean that

    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck
    The Mighty Boomstick, running after me
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck, yeah
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck, yeah


    The Mighty Boomstick, running after me
    The Mighty Boomstick, it's nothing but bad luck
    Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck
    And back of a tree, looking back at me
    Climbing up my stair
    I've just got to beware
    Mighty Boomstick, yes, it's bad luck, bad luck

    4. Do You Spill Your Guts

    Oh na na na na
    Mystery to me is something I can't see
    But I see you very well
    You're slimey, dead, nobody's friend
    But there's something inside I can tell

    I know a poor man, a rich man
    I know I can talk to the King
    But nobody here is gonna tell me
    I can't find out one thing

    I see a Goo around you
    Open your chest 'cause I'm walking to you, coming straight or through
    Maybe I'm wrong but I know it won't take long to see
    Do You Spill Your Guts
    Do You Spill Your Guts
    Do You Spill Your Guts when you're getting smacked, yeah, yeah
    Getting smacked by Ash the Chosen One, yeah

    The logical trend has said I'll know in the end
    The things that make you rot
    So right from the start, I take an aim at your heart
    and know that all the while

    I know a rich man, a poor man
    I know I can talk to the king, yeah
    So nobody here is gonna make me believe
    I can't find out one thing

    I see a goo around you
    Open your chest 'cause I'm coming, running, straight on through
    I could be wrong but I know it won't take long to see
    Do You Spill Your Guts
    Do You Spill Your Guts
    Do You Spill Your Guts when you're getting smacked, yeah

    Do You Spill Your Guts
    Do You Spill Your Guts
    Do You Spill Your Guts when you're getting smacked.

    5. BRUCEGAZER

    High noon, oh I'd sell my soul for water
    Nine years worth of fighting evil dead
    There's no sun in the shadow of BRUCE
    See how he glides, why he's lighter than air?
    Oh I see his face!

    Where is your gun?!!
    Is it far, is it far, is it far?
    When do we leave?
    I believe, yes, I believe

    In the heat and the rain
    With the whips and chainsaws
    To see him fly
    So many die
    We built a statue of Bruce
    With our flesh and body juice
    Just to see him fly
    But don't know why
    Now where do we go?

    Living tree, moving fast across the forest
    We feel that our time has arrived
    The world spins, while we put his dream together
    A statue of Bruce to take him straight to the sky
    Oh I see his face!

    Where is your gun?!!
    Is it far, is it far, is it far?
    When do we leave?
    Hey, I believe, I believe

    In the heat and the rain
    With the whips and chainsaws
    To see him fly
    So many die
    We built a statue of Bruce
    With our flesh and body juice
    Just to see him fly
    But don't know why
    Now where do we go?

    All eyes see the figure of the Bruce
    As he climbs to the top of the world
    No sound, as he rules, instead of just rising
    Time standing still, then there's zombie's blood on the sand
    Oh I see his face!

    Where was your gun?
    Was it your hand, was it your hand
    When did we leave?
    We believed, we believed, we believed

    In heat and rain
    With the whips and chainsaws
    To see him fly
    So many died
    We built a statue of bruce
    With our flesh and body juice
    To see him fly

    But why
    In all the rain
    With all the chainsaws
    Did so many die
    Just to see him fly

    Look at my flesh and bone
    Now, look, look, look, look, Look at the Statue of BRUCE
    I see your Chainsaw rising
    Look there, on the horizon oh no, who's rising
    And I'm coming home, I'm coming home, I'm coming home

    Time is standing still
    You, give back my cut off limb
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Going home I'm going home

    My eyes are bleeding
    And my heart is EVIL DEAD
    But it's not home
    But it's not home
    Ooh

    Take me back
    You, give me back my cut off limb
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh

    Going home
    I'm going home

    My eyes are bleeding
    And my heart is Evil Dead
    But it's not home
    But it's not home

    Take me back, take me back
    Back to my home ooh, ooh, ooh

    6. Fight In The Dark

    Can't forget her face
    What a fucked-up place
    Is my hand really a chainsaw?

    All the time that's lost
    What's the final cost
    Will I really get away?

    All last night it seems
    Just a crazy dream
    Of some B-movie superstar

    Can't believe it all
    Was I really warped
    What to do now I don't know

    Something's called me back
    There's a fight in the dark
    Am I gonna be Dead By Dawn?
    I'm coming home

    Breathed the air before
    Heard the thunder roar
    Never knew it shouted "BRUUUUCE"

    Still I cut'em down
    Saw and Boomstick sound
    The Evil Dead are no match for me

    All last night it seems
    Just a crazy dream
    Of some B-movie superstar

    Through the open door
    Into every hellhole
    But I've never had more fun than this

    Something's calling me back
    There's a fight in the dark
    Army of Darkness against Chainsaw?

    Dead by Dawn, Dead By Dawn, yeah
    I'm not gonna be Dead by Dawn

    I'm going home, home, home
    Going home, home, home
    I'm coming back

    Don't forget her face
    What a fucked-up place
    My hand's now a Chainsaw

    All this time reversed
    What's their final curse
    Will I really get away?

    All last night it seems
    Just a crazy dream
    Of some B-movie superstar

    Can't believe it all
    Did I really get warped
    What to do now, yes, I know

    Something's calling me back
    Like a fight in the dark
    Yes, I'm ready to go
    And I ain't gonna be Dead by Dawn

    I've got my way back home
    To the sky
    There in the sky
    I see the name "Bruce".

  • 2008 Ten of the Best (albums)

    9 Nov 2008, 14:50 by mat35

    Not been wow’d away by all that much this year. Not that that’s a bad thing. 2008 the year of change, the year of Rat or at least more or less eleven twelfths of it is/has been. 2008 the year of quality over quantity.

    Early as ever, I am with these things, but in the age of the internet if you haven’t heard it by mid-November it’s out next year. So…

    My Top Ten:

    10) A Silver Mt Zion as Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band with 13 Blues for Thirteen Moons
    Bombastic vocal Post-Rock from people that brought us such godliness as God Speed! You Black Emperor. This isn’t on the same level as that, and is more in your face get it straight away stuff than previous outings, so those who like it deep might be a little off put, Efrim’s vocals also could also be a little off putting for some people. I don’t entirely mind all that much to be honest, it has a distinctive flavour and is a good album in it’s own light. A light that will probably remain over shadowed for many by it’s gigantic brothers and sisters.

    9) Coldplay with Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends
    In my Metal loving days of yesteryears Five seconds before I heard this album, I would have berated myself for considering it a good album, after all it is Coldplay. Who have previously never previously produced anything more than a good collection of singles that on there own merits are decent, but played back to back quickly cause high levels of boredom. This however is quite the opposite no real singles as such other than the it’s namesake which I shocked not to have seen in a sporting montage. I don’t I know what I can say to get you to listen to it because they are one of those bands. I suppose when you’re influences are U2 and Radiohead you’re just asking to have some quarters to refuse to listen to you.. But do, it’s a pleasant surprise.

    8) Mogwai with The Hawk is Howling
    One of my favourite bands, have been for the past two years, since the days I went to college in Manchester and Mr Beast adverts were literally plastered at every visible angle. Nothing really new here, to be honest there probably not that much they can did with regards to changing there sound, but quality wise the maintain their typically high standards. One notable thing is there are no vocals at all. None. No one on the telephone, no sample Iggy Pop chatting on about crap, none guy out of Super Furry Animals. Pick out tracks is Scotland’s Shame and the first single Batcat.

    7) Venetian Snares with Detrimentalist
    Gentlemen. Usually I’m a bigger fan of the Rossz csillag alatt született type Vsnares albums, and for now that will a far as I’m concerned will remain to be Aaron Funk’s magnum opus. That said this from the word go produces a party in my ears. This album his more Drum’n’Bass and Dub influenced than those previous to it, yet is very typically Vsnares with mad breaks. It’s just that this time it makes you want to dance and party more than ever before.

    6) Peter Broderick with Home
    Ever since I “discovered” the beauty of this man’s music when he supported Efterklang last year have I claimed his genius, and such a departure from ones usually sound can only come in one of a few categories. Sell out, disaster, or genius. This of course is genius. His usual beautiful ambience and piano melodies are replaced by with acoustic folkiness, and vocal melodies. Comparable to the likes of Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver, just better than one, almost as the other. Of course it’s hardly shocking he can write/play in a different style to which he often does, after all he is a multi-multi instrumentalist, and one of the greatest musicians I’ve had the pleasure of seeing live.

    5) Peter Broderick with Float
    Bet you wasn’t expecting that! Yes, he scores two in a row. This album is his signature sound that I have come to love with the European Tour CD and Docile. Peaceful and tranquil, I’d recommend to anyone, and everyone. We can’t go at 100mph all the time, and this album is perfect to relax to.

    4) Portishead with Third
    This band are relatively new to me, having discovered them pretty due to this album coming out, and the push it was being given. It’s great! I’ve since gone on to grab hold of the two previous studio releases one of which Dummy challenges Mezzanine for greatness. But let’s rant about this album. The music is dark, eerie, and oddly beautiful. Beth’s voice can only be described as hypnotic - amazing - beautiful. This release more or less optimise the theme of the year (quality over quantity) as it is the first release from the band in over 9 or 10 years I believe! The Rip and Machine Gun are particular favourites of mine.

    3) Sigur Ros with Með Suð i Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust

    Not many bands are in the top 20 or my 3 month, 6 month, 12 month, and Overall (4 year) charts… In fact there are only two. Mogwai and Sigur Ros. Oddly enough neither of which at the moment I have seen live. I unfortunately had to yet again pass on Mogwai the other week because of being poor. Sigur Ros however is all fully booked and just waiting to happen in a few weeks… And I can’t wait one little second.. If I closed my eyes right now and suddenly it was time for me to get the coach down to London I’d be one happy boy! Oh, and did I mention they are number one on my overall charts.

    What was that waffle all for you might ask, well you don’t get that consistently high on my charts without having a number of great albums, and yes, you’ve guess it. Með Suð i Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust is another great album. In many ways it’s very similar to Takk, in many ways it’s not. The opening track for instance wouldn’t go a miss side by side with an Animal Collective (circa FeelsFeels) track. Yet it soon becomes signature Ros, but the transition is smooth it’s not like one second you’re listening to Animal Collective next Sigur Ros, oh no. It’s Sigur Ros all the way through. In that essence the album is more like one big journy of a track than many different songs. Nevertheless it’s one top notch album.

    2) M83 with Saturdays = Youth

    Fresh, Retro: I can’t think of two more juxtaposed adjectives, especially when it comes to describing music. However when thinking of how to describe M83’s new outing Saturdays = Youth. They both pop to mind almost instantly. Whereas previous M83 albums sound like an up-to-date reprisal of classic showgaze, Saturdays is the most perfect eighties pop album for the noughties. Everything from the album sleeve to the first and last beat screams “nineteen eighties!” loudly and proudly however what’s inside is so modern it, so much so it’s almost unbelievable. Yet it is believable, M83 make it believable.

    1) Bon Iver with For Emma, Forever Ago
    Recorded and released in America last year, Bon Iver finally hit these shores and my ears around May of this year. For Emma, Forever Ago is a collection of personal, heart warming modern folk songs. On first listen you think it can’t get much better than this. On second you think the same, or the hundredth and so on you still think the same. That is all until you see Justin and his band live. Oh my. Over shadowed only by the might My Bloody Valentine this year… The show? It’s a show stopper! After seeing that and dare I, dare I say it: this man could be as good as Jeff Buckley. Unfortunately I’ll never have the chance to see the late great Buckley live, but his works are masterful and his voice was all so amazing. Justin’s works are also on an extremely high level and I have never heard a better vocalist live. He packed out the medium size Academy 2 in Manchester earlier this year. If he keeps up this quality I can only see him getting bigger and bigger.

    Well that's it for now. Might do a Best of Gigs, Tracks, and EPs/singles as the weeks to 2009 count down.

  • THE DETOX CENTRE SECOND INTERNATIONAL MEETING

    26 Jul 2008, 20:05 by Attic

    One year ago, I had the pleasure to meet Dr spherickal, which has changed my life in ways you can't even imagine. This summer, it was high time to finally meet the Boss, Mr Rules, the God of Music: Kotsa.
    We were supposed to meet at Brussels Midi Station. Due to an unexpected problem with his limo, our director was late... and i saw no limo as it had to be taken to the garage. The day started not so well... Luckily, it appeared that Kotsa is someone very generous and to compensate he invited me for a glass of Champagne outside a very posh restaurant. We quickly talked about the clinic, about the patients and about the new treatments we could or should experiment with.
    Then we had a walk in a deserted city - I learnt later that, using his influence, he had convinced people to stay home for us to be in a quiet environment to talk. We also attended a special sound and effects show, which combined waterfalls and lightning. A great sensation!
    Later on, we were invited to the Palais des Beaux Arts for a special exhibition, introducing the artwork of Pete Doherty and Kendra Pfahler. That was a real shock to us and it immediately made us think about how we could use art to try to save our beloved patients. After a short buffet at the private view - because we were on the VIP list, Kotsa invited me for lunch.
    We went to a world-renowned restaurant, "M". The caviar was excellent as well as the wine. As Kotsa knew the boss, we had extra services for a cheap price. The meal was really delicious.
    It is obvious that Kotsa's got money. He never pays attention to prices and he even orders things he's not gonna eat, just because he can. He's also a very busy person. His phone rang all day. As a renowned doctor, he's called by people from all over the world, asking for advice.
    We decided then to have a walk in the city, the sun was finally there. Dior, Chanel, Christian Lacroix and another Swedish haute couture shop, we saw them all. And Kotsa even found me an expensive silk top. After that, we had an appointment at an experimental new lab (the picture you'll see soon is from there) where i bought new items for the DC. Kotsa didn't. He was apparently not in the mood. As we were there, i tried to submit new ideas i had, but he apparently considered they were all rubbish...
    After that, we went outside an elegant and quiet café to have a last drink of that famous Belgian nectar. We (at last!) agreed on several things about the SLC levels, there will be changes.
    I must say we had a great time, and despite his famous face, we were not too much annoyed by the paparazzi. We occasionally noticed that some people followed us to see which cool places important people like us visited, but it was fine. I even obtained a rare and precious thing i could never have dreamt of: a picture with kotsa! To finish, (and Kotsa i know you were sorry but i have to tell it,) he was unfortunately unable to end the day with me and left me alone at the station. He had a business dinner with famous Belgian and English doctors. But as a doctor myself, i could understand that and we already plan another meeting, maybe in France next time.

  • Inside-out Shirts Are Better Than Boring Ones (Radiohead/MBV Weekend)

    30 Jun 2008, 15:14 by mat35

    My penultimate weekend in England (for a few month) was golden.

    Saturday - It had been so long since I had been to the Apollo, that I had completely forgot how to get to Ardwick... And thus walked it, when I could've easily have got the bus from Tescos in town. But I was off to the My Bloody Valentine's first Manchester gig in a mad ammount of years.. I wasn't even 5 anyway. .. So all was good regardless of the mooch. The first band up Spectrum I probably could enjoyed all of it if I was sat at home, going "woooooow the sustain and release on that last foreeeeeeeeeeeeever" but that was kinda boring live. But they had some stuff that sounded like (to me) Om with guitars. But I dunno... For the main event we was made to wait... and wait for a while... But as the Guinness adverts like to remind you, I don't know why Guinness is minging (speaking of booze when did the "Carling" Apollo stop serving Carling?) good things come to those who wait… and what’s a few minuets when some people there had been waiting like over 15 years.. Anyway I don’t know what to really say about it other than no words can do it real justice… The back drop was amazing, probably the best use of a back drop I’ve ever seen.. Well thought through.. The vocals were lower down in the mix I thought than on record, but maybe that’s because everything else was 50 times louder… And loudness.. LOUDNESS.. Thank the lord of health and safety who put free earplugs at the merch stand.. They didn’t block that much out but I wouldn’t have survived the Holocaust section without them, 20 minuets of pure noise.. I looked behind me to see the reactions on peoples faces and it was 50% glee, 50% hands on ears endurance. My Bloody Valentine were (warning bad pun) a-bloody-amazing!

    A pizza, a sleep, some Smash Bros, and a mooch later on and I found myself in a taxi with Pauli and two random old(er) people. Then a massive, massive queue for the tickets… We could hear Bat for Lashes singing songs about not being sure and generally not being that good (I didn’t enjoy her album) but whatever we was about to see Radiohead in the secondary car park for The Theatre of Dreams… Don’t really know what much to say about this either, another good gig. I guess I do some people commentary… There were Noel, Liam, and the rest of Oasis the group of people near us who looked like they should’ve been at an Oasis they started off as a group of about 4 people but seemed to grow and grow through out the night.. There were many wankers who decided hey I like this song let’s push forward.. And there were the drunk men… One who went ape-spair when some push forward wanker knocked my glasses off.. He was a safe guy, just really drunk.. Any Radiohead were very, veery gooooood and played lots of tunes but forgot Street Spirit, not that MBV played every song I wished for but still… However Idioteque was sweet and they could’ve ended it there.

    On merch.. Radiohead’s was shite.. Utter, utter, shite.. Was the first thing we looked at and it sucked.. My Bloody Valentine didn’t have much of a selection and most of it was kak.. But there was a shirt with a nice artistic interpretation of the cover from You Made Me Realise.. I got that then found out it was kinda inside-out.. And was like wtf.. I need to see someone wearing the same shirt as me.. If there is the same I’m alright.. Then in BK at like midnight there was a guy who kinda looked like one of the people from Efterklang wearing the same shirt, and it was inside-out kinda.. And I sighed a sigh of relief and then proceeded to eat my burger like a fatty.

    Also Radiohead want us to free Tibet from the most powerful economic state in the world, lol like our governments would risk pissing them off.

    Conclusion/tl:dr - Good weekend, good music, Radiohead, MBV, new t-shirt.

  • 200666....Sleven

    3 Jan 2007, 12:09 by mat35

    2006 was a cool fucking year... The best in recent memory, and in spite of popular belief I can remember beyond 2 weeks! Here lies most of the cream of Ohsix in CD terms... Then There were all those concerts starting and ending in DragonForce, with highlights of Anathema, Cult of Luna, Enslaved/Zyklon,1349, Nevermore and In Flames with Sepultura... And who could forget ever this years Wacken, and Damnation Festivals? Seeing Stampin' Ground for the last time ever, actual seeing Emperor, Atheist, and the mighty Celtic Frost!!! ... And then meeting Mike Amott (Ex-Carcass, Spiritual Beggars) and Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy in Hamburg airport... Meeting Greats Such as All of Nevermore, Sepultura, Bjorn and Jesper from In Flames, Marc Rizzo, Sam from DragonForce and many more Metal masters, and musicians! Ohsix was the win!

    But that was then... And this is now, this is Ohsept. And what this holds, I don't really know, but albums from 10 albums of 05 artists Jesu, Dark Tranquillity, Chimaira, and possible Arch Enemy release new albums, Cult of Luna are in Manchester again, another Wacken with a line up as good as last year, and maybe if my Dad is feeling nice, a trip to Dubai for Desert Rock... And I may attempt at going down Nottingham if I can (if tickets haven't sold out, to see Celtic Frost, Humblebesmithe is coming (if I'm going) whether he wants to or not, HAHAHA.... And there will no doubt be many more bumps and surprises along the way.

    Well this has been a cliché journal, and this is goodbye... See you soon!

    I must be a sinner!
    5 Apr 2008, 01:31
    In the sixth century, Pope Gregory handed down a list of "seven cardinal vices." Now the Vatican has issued an additional seven "social sins."
    You offend God not only by stealing, taking the Lord's name in vain or coveting your neighbor's wife, but also by wrecking the environment, carrying out morally debatable experiments that manipulate DNA or harm embryos," said [Bishop Gianfranco] Girotti, who is responsible for the body that oversees confessions.
    The seven social sins are:

    1. "Bioethical" violations such as birth control
    ---(GUILTY)

    2. "Morally dubious" experiments such as stem cell research
    ---(Not Guilty...not a genecist...I help build the American War Machine!)

    3. Drug abuse
    ---(Ridiculously Guilty)

    4. Polluting the environment
    ---(Guilty...though I do make a huge effort at not)

    5. Contributing to widening divide between rich and poor
    ---(Not Guilty...I am an anarchist{misnomer}...so most people think my beliefs are socialist...all though in reality I am anti-social)

    6. Excessive wealth
    ---(Definately Not Guilty!...I owe, I owe, so off to work I go)

    7. Creating poverty
    ---(Not Guilty...can anyone say George Bush???)

    The original deadly sins:

    1. Pride
    ---(Guilty...I Love Myself...Personally!)

    2. Envy
    ---(Guilty...I wanna be _______ ...fill in the blank)

    3. Gluttony
    ---(Guilty...Ohhhhh Yeahhhhh!!!!!)

    4. Lust
    ---(Uhhhh! GUILTY! Aren't We All???)

    5. Anger
    ---(Sometimes Last.fm pisses me off...but yeah Guilty... I am a MADman more often than not)

    6. Greed
    ---(Not yet!!!)

    7. Sloth
    ---(Guilty...it's called last.fm)
