I've been thinking about this for a while. This current generation of music fans don't relate to music in the same way that people in the 80's or even the 90's used to. It's hard to explain but listening to Whitney Houston's "Saving all my love for you" has helped me understand that that sort of music has almost outdated its credibility in the eyes and ears of many modern youths. It's a sad thing because the feeling and emotional context of these songs have everlasting meaning and application. Listening to Donna Summer or Diana Ross now may very easily be seen as a joke when played to a crowd. As music becomes more disposable, as does the feelings correlated within it.  Lil B prolly knows what I'm talking about.

Underworld-8 Ball - Skip to 4:43 and you'll see what I'm on about.

Its from the soundtrack for the 2000 film 'The Beach' starring Leonardo DeCaprio and Tilda Swinton. Some people regard it as a cult from and others as a flop. Nevertheless, this song remains true in heart and in mind.
The above is an example of how I just add echoes to shit and try and make it like something worth involving yourself in.

I walk and observe, taking mental notes while exuding displeasure and regret. I often believe that I was not meant for this world. Or that I am part of something else, something that I could never accomplish here, on Earth. Embracing change can be exciting but I have always battled with it. It's like I never want to give up anything, however meaningless it may be. What is this innocence and melancholy I strive to hold on to? I know It's not for me, making sure I'm not in too deep. I think that I need to vent all this out, that It would do me good. Like a dance studio all to myself would work wonders. It's like I'm working against myself. My brain is split in to and the "bad" part is the strongest. No self pity here, mere factuations of my own reality. Fun, isn't it? And of course you can't become if you only say what you would have done.

At The Drive-In and Refused to Reform! Incredible news as I awoke today. My facebook feed was invaded by wild posts on the bands reuniting. Sure enough the murmurs are true. They announced it via Twitter first then the website gave some more away. The band will reform for Coachella but an EP is expected to come out around March. Considering since the release of "de loused in the comatorium' the band has struggled to match the frantic melodic bliss that is that album, Id say that this may just be perfect timing from the El Paso outfit. They are also set to star in this years already insane Coachella lineup.
More amazing news today as seminal punk/post hardcore band Refused also announce they will come together for Coachella. They produced possibly the greatest hardcore album of the 90's with 1998's "The Shape of Punk to Come" their electrifying spirit is highly contagious and sends you into a blissfully manic spiral. They have a very conventional moral approach to their music and that was as refreshing then as it continues to be now.
