Do you think we have time?

Praying for Time|George Michael

These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars
And the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we’ll take our chances
Because God stopped keeping score
I guess somewhere along the way
He must have let us all out to play
Turned his back and all god’s children
Crept out the back door

And it’s hard to love,
There’s so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above
Say it’s much too late
Well maybe we should all be
Praying for time

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear
Twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there
Is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say what’s mine is mine and not yours
I may have too much
But I’ll take my chances
Because God stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things
They sold you
Did you cover your eyes when
They told you
That he can’t come back
Because he has no children
To come back for

Is your future worth $30?
You need this book.

I'm Lolita!

by Vladimir Nabokov

Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every way, though you admit that this probably isn't the best and you're not sure what causes this desire. Nonetheless, you've done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real.
Please stay away from children.

If you want my love.
Depeche Mode at their most plaintive.

Is simplicity best or simply the easiest?
The narrowest pass is always the holiest.
So walk on barefoot for me, suffer some misery.
If you want my love, if you want my love.

Man will survive the harshest conditions,
And stay alive from difficult decisions.
So make up your mind for me,
Walk the line for me.
If you want my love, if you want my love.

Idle talk and hollow promises,
Cheating Judases, doubting Thomases.
Don't just stand there and shout it.

You can fulfill your wildest ambitions,
And I'm sure you will lose your inhibitions.
So open yourself for me,
Risk your health for me.
If you want my love.....

Those who do not know the history of photography
are condemned to a life of boredom.
Kruger v. Outerbridge.

Oh. And since when did a child molester garner all this attention?
A gorgeous song.
If ever there was.

Well don't you cry now -
Don't go drowning in your tears
Haven't you learnt anything
After all these years?

All God's little children
Are beautiful & pure
And you're as good
As all of them
Of this you can be sure

And we are just the same
Underneath the shadows
Of the sun
And we are just the same
No more no less than anyone

All the people
Of this lonely world
Have a piece of pain inside
Don't go thinking
You're the only one
Who ever broke right down
And cried

That's when the rain comes down
That's when the rain comes down

And this is for the broken dreamers
And this is for vacant souls
And this is for the hopeless losers
And this is for the helpless fools
And the burnt out
And the useless
And the lonely & the weak
And the lost & the degraded
& the too dumb to speak

And the day goes down
And the day goes down
That's when the day goes falling down
And the day goes down

That's when the day
Goes falling down

When the Day Goes Down|We Too Are One 1989

Freddie ruled the world, once. For a day.
Live Aid.
Look past the photographs and you'll find a few videos, and some killer sounds for your iPod.
