Just be

Reactions: 
Sometimes one just has to relax and just be...
So ponder these lyrics for the reason behind my statement...
DJ Tiesto - Just Be
You can travel the world

But you can't run away
From the person you are in your heart
You can be who you want to be
Make us believe in you
Keep all your light in the dark
You're searching for truth
You must look in the mirror
And make sense of what you can see
Just be
Just be

They say learning to love yourself
Is the first step
But you take what you want to be real
Flying on planes to exotic locations
Won't teach you
How you how to feel
Beside the fact
That you are who you are
And nothing can change that belief
Just be
Just be

Cause now I know
Is not so far
To were I go
The hardest part
is inside me

I need
To just be

Just be x4


I was lost

And I'm still lost
But I feel so
much better

That is all for today... just be...
**Eternity is a mere moment, just long enough for a joke.** Hermann Hesse (1877 - 1962)

Half life, terror decays in the harsh glare of the rocket's flame.

Reactions: 
And they tried again... this time like a damp squib... It seems like the Terrorists of this world are feeling the pinch, hastily concocting scemes and explosive mixtures as the net closes from all sides all over the world.
Several reports seem to indicate that the feeling of most world citizens is slowly becoming irritated to say the least with terrorist organizations world wide... However now is the time for all good men and goverments to keep up the pressure on the evildoers and their supporters. Especially the ones that want to foster the spread of Islamofacism...
Once again we can only applaud the efforts of the average Londoner, stiff upper lip wot... put on the kettle for some tea luv...

I hope to get my grubby paws on the real tracks of her versions of the Black song soon, glad to see she has some downloads of her excellent works... The lyrics are from the last song on the list. By the way Colin Vearnacombe the artist formerly known as Black has a few samples on his site as well...
Wonderful life - Black - Colin Vearncombe
Here I go out to sea again
The sunshine fills my hair
And dreams hang in the air
Gulls in the sky and in my blue eyes
You know it feels unfair
Ther's magic everywhere
Look at me standing
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide
It's a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh or cry
It's a wonderful, wonderful life

The sun's in your eyes
The heat is n your hair
They seem to hate you
Because you're there
And I need a friend, oh I need a friend
To make me happy
Not stand there on my own
Look at me standing here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine
No need to run and hide
It's a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh or cry
It's a wonderful, wonderful life

I need a friend, oh I need a friend
To make me happy, not so alone
Look at me here, here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide
It's a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh or cry
It's a wonderful, wonderful life

I had great fun compiling todays list but now I have to get some shuteye... The quote was rather difficult...
so I settled for this...

Scotty has beamed up

Reactions: 
BBC NEWS Entertainment: TV and Radio Star Trek's Scotty dies aged 85
So sad to hear this, as a Trekkie I always enjoyed that line "Beam me up Scotty". He sort of reminded me of my Grandad om Mom's side, he was also an engineer and of Scotish decent, a distant decendant of William Wallace by the way, a pity he died before TV. I think he would have enjoyed a lot of todays technology. Possibly got some of my love of tinkering with things from him as well. Scotty or James Doohan in real life was one of the Star Trek characters that was a hero in his own right, always ready to go the extra mile to get the Enterprise on line... so even being a Canadian by birth I salute him in the language of a true Scot, Soraidh laoch Scotty! (Hope my syntax is correct.) Today's lyrics come from Sarah Connor and Zero to Hero, a upbeat tribute to a TV hero of mine. She is German by the way...
Baby, now I'm gonna get my message to you
And I hope that you believe that it's true
And maybe take some time but all that's in your mind
You can make it come true
And it's crazy, that the people wait for someone who's strong
Even though they could do it on their own
'Cause everyone of us has a hero in his heart

So this is your time, you can take it
And love is no crime, you should make it
Whenever you feel you gotta go deep inside your soul
From zero to hero
So this is your life, you can live it
And if you feel love, just go out and give it
Whenever you know you gotta go deep inside your soul
From zero to hero

Baby, you've been falling deep in love with a girl
You're so happy, wanna tell the whole world
You better wait a while, until you make her smile
And you'll know she loves you, too
Don't be lazy, gotta prove to her your love is so strong
And without her all you do is just wrong
She will be loving you for the hero in your heart

So this is your time, you can take it
And love is no crime, you should make it
Whenever you feel you gotta go deep inside your soul
From zero to hero
So this is your life, you can live it
And if you feel love, just go out and give it
Whenever you know you gotta go deep inside your soul
From zero to hero

Take your chances baby
You can make it through
From a zero to a hero
Just follow your soul

So this is your time, this is your time, you can take it
Love ain't a crime, so you should make it
This is your live and you'll be living it
From zero to hero
So this is your time, you can take it
And love is no crime, you should make it
Whenever you feel you gotta go deep inside your soul
From zero to hero
So this is your life, you can live it
And if you feel love, just go out and give it
Whenever you know you gotta go deep inside your soul
From zero to hero

Wins a girl's heart

What Your Name Means (Numerology)

Reactions: 
What Your Name Means (Numerology) WOW! This amazed me just as much as the previous one.
There are 18 letters in your name.Those 18 letters total to 88. There are 6 vowels and 12 consonants in your name.
Your number is: 7
The characteristics of #7 are: Analysis, understanding, knowledge, awareness, studious, meditating.
The expression or destiny for #7:Thought, analysis, introspection, and seclusiveness are all characteristics of the expression number 7. The hallmark of the number 7 is a good mind, and especially good at searching out and finding the truth. You are so very capable of analyzing, judging and discriminating, that very little ever escapes your observation and deep understanding. You are the type of person that can really get involved in a search for wisdom or hidden truths, often becoming an authority on whatever it is your are focusing on. This can easily be of a technical or scientific nature, or it may be religious or occult, it matters very little, you pursue knowledge with the same sort of vigor. You can make a very fine teacher, or because of a natural inclination toward the spiritual, you may become deeply emerged in religious affairs or even psychic explorations. You tend to operate on a rather different wavelength, and many of your friends may not really know you very well. The positive aspects of the 7 expression are that you can be a true perfectionist in a very positive sense of the word. You are very logical, and usually employ a quite rational approach to most things you do. You can be so rational at times that you almost seem to lack emotion, and when you are faced with an emotional situation, you may have a bit of a problem coping with it. You have excellent capabilities to study and learn really deep and difficult subjects, and to search for hidden fundamentals. At full maturity you are likely to be a very peaceful and poised individual.
If there is an over supply of the number 7 in your makeup, the negative aspects of the number may be apparent. The chief negative of 7 relates to the limited degree of trust that you may have in people. A tendency to be highly introverted can make you a bit on the self-centered side, certainly very much self-contained . Because of this, you are not very adaptable, and you may tend to be overly critical and intolerant. You really like to work alone, at your own pace and in your own way. You neither show or understand emotions very well.
Your Soul Urge number is: 9
A Soul Urge number of 9 means: With a 9 Soul Urge, you want to give to others, usually in a humanitarian or philanthropic manner. You are highly motivated to give friendship, affection and love. And you are generous in giving of your knowledge and experience. You have very sharing urges, and you are likely to have a great deal to share. Your concern for others makes you a very sympathetic and generous person with a sensitive and compassionate nature.
You are able to view life in very broad and intuitive terms. You often express high ideals and an inspirational approach to life. If you are able to fully realize the potential of your motivation, you will be a very self-sacrificing person who is able to give freely without being concerned about any return or reward.
As with all human beings, you are prone to sometimes express the negative attitudes inherent to your Soul Urges. You may become too sensitive and tend to express emotions strongly at times. There can be significant conflict between higher aims and personal ambitions. You may resent the idea of giving all of the time and, in fact, if there is too much 9 energy in your nature you may reject the idea. You may often be disappointed in the lack of perfection in yourself and others.
Your Inner Dream number is: 7
An Inner Dream number of 7 means: You dream of having the opportunity to read, study, and shut yourself off from worldly distractions. You can see yourself as a teacher, mystic, or ecclesiastic, spending your life in the pursuit of knowledge and learning. To be continued...

Let the ICE begin

Reactions: 
BBC NEWS England Mobiles 999 contact idea spreads Somtimes brilliant ideas are just something simple that no one else has thought about before... Users are being urged to enter a number in their phone's memory under the heading ICE - In Case of Emergency.
So now I have:
ICE M...
ICE Dad
ICE L...
On my mobile, I just hope it never gets needed.
Talking off ice, our winter had been rather bland this year... rarely under Zero and very little frost... but then August is still on it's way... Talking of ice and cold... here is a short playlist of cool cold chilly ice songs... Playlist title: ICE

14
tracks in playlist, average track length: 3:53

Playlist length: 54 minutes 23 seconds
    1. Armin van Buuren - Shivers (Radio Edit) (3:13)
    2. Brainstorm - Colder (3:50)
    3. Gregorian - Out of the cold (3:48)
    4. No Angels - Cold as Ice (4:06)
    5. The Lightning Seeds - Sugar coated iceberg (3:52)
    6. Joe Dolan - Frozen rivers (4:05)
    7. Jennifer Hall - Ice Cream Days (4:35)
    8. Natalie Imbruglia - Shiver (3:44)
    9. Hooverphonic - Frosted flake wood (3:17)
    10. Milla Jovovich - Beat on ice (3:57)
    11. Maroon5 - Shiver (2:59)
    12. White Stripes - In the cold cold night (2:58)
    13. Jennifer Rush - Ring of ice (3:45)
    14. Madonna - Frozen (6:14)
I am thinking that Ring of Ice from Jennifer Rush should be the lyrics of the day but on second thoughts I decided on Milla Jovovich and her song Beat On Ice... Take a peek on her site... all the songs are downloadable.
Milla's comments:
"More Than 4" & "Beat On Ice" are demos that I wrote on the guitar and recorded on my laptop, for fun, they're just fun ideas.

Lyrics:
i see you breaking up in water
sinking to the bottom
watching reruns of my dreams
we fade away tonight

i'm washed by sea into the sky...

-i don't know how i fell into you
we just keep falling away
when we get close-

Now I had better take a leaf from today's quote... hopefully the next few blogs will be more incitefull and wise. As this is my second blog from Firefox browser I must say cutting and pasting is so much better than under IE, you get almost the exact positioning and other html effects as in the original... way cool Firefox!
**Iron rusts from disuse; water loses its purity from stagnation and in cold weather becomes frozen; even so does inaction sap the vigors of the mind.**

Angelvoice

Reactions: 
I have been gradualy drawn into Trance music, mainly because the genre has some ladies with amazing voices, that and eyes... always get me...
So today I bring tribute to an Angelvoice... Jan Johnston! All the tracks she has featured on as well as her own songs have this amazing quality brought on by her angelic voice. Oh... not a bad looker either...
Another favourite is Kirsty Hawkshaw who by the way is also a backup singer for Sarah McLachlan when on tour, more minor music trivia... In any case here is my Jan Johnston playlist called Angelvoice
11 tracks in playlist,
average track length: 4:57
Playlist length: 54 minutes 29 seconds

    01. Paul van Dyk - Nothing But You (3:35)
    02. Paul van Dyk - Tell me why (3:45)
    03. Paul van Dyk - Homage (3:44)
    04. Paul van Dyk - Nothing but you (faithless mix) (9:14)
    05. Paul van Dyk - Reflections (club mix) (7:40)
    06. Paul van Dyk - Nothing But You (3:35)
    07. DJ Tiësto - Close To You (5:00)
    08. DJ Tiësto - In My Memory (6:06)
    09. Paul van Dyk - Homage (remix) (3:47)
    10. Paul van Dyk - Nothing but you (berlin mix) (5:02)
    11. Paul Van Dyk - We Are Alive (3:01)
The song I feel would suit the theme would be Homage from the Paul van Dyk album Reflections in the mix, the remix album. Not because of the lyrics but because of Jan's angelic voice. Although Close to you is a close second for angelic voice, maybe I will post it in another blog.

I’ll drown you in kisses

I know I miss so many magical moments
When I’m away from you I miss your touch
I miss your voice
I miss the way we unlock, the secrets to each other

There’s only you I could love forever

That’s why I’m so lonely in a crowd
And all I think about
Is coming home to you
It’s the stuff of dreams how we hunger for our time
I could never get enough of your sweet love
That is why I’m so lonely in a crowd
And all I think about is coming home to you

I know I miss so many magical moments
When I’m away from you I miss your touch
I miss your voice
I miss the way we unlock, the secrets to each other

There’s only you I could love forever

That’s why I’m so lonely in a crowd
And all I think about
Is coming home to you
It’s the stuff of dreams how we hunger for our time
I could never get enough of your sweet love
That is why I’m so lonely in a crowd
And all I think about is coming home to you

(5x)
I’ll drown you in kisses

The quote sums it up nicely I think. Talking of angelic, this is my first post using Firefox and it is soooo much better than using IE, quick response and not the jerkiness I have been experiencing as well as the fact that all the button titles render as they should, imho a angel of a browser. (Damn... that hurt butting the link up to IE... apologies... but I have to be fair...)

Iran press blame West for blasts

Reactions: 
BBC NEWS UK Iran press blame West for blasts
"The more moderate Iran News says Osama Bin Laden has support because many Muslims feel their religion, culture and civilisation have been dishonoured and humiliated by Western policies in the Middle East."
Well when one does not stand up and denounce evil being perpetrated in your name one can expect to be dishonoured and humiliated... It's sort of a moral law of Nature! High time for them to take a deep look at this religion of theirs and weigh it up to the mores of the rest of the world... "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." John 13:34 Springs to mind.
Yes I do believe that the Christian viewpoint is the right one, however off all the world's religions the mohammedan's creed is by far the most flawed. But if you do not agree, that is your perogative... I have been quitely researching the unholy book and have not found much to suggest the opposite... I always say if people make it hard to understand a book there must be a terrible secret... the Truth has a way to stand glaringly in the Light for all to see and in plain language.

So what do they want?

Reactions: 
Mirror.co.uk - News - SO WHAT DO THEY WANT?
"They think they are fighting for the future of the entire world, for a universal Islamic state that will rule every human life. We must do all in our power to destroy them before they try again to destroy our way of life."
Summed up in three words... Convert or die! The old (is it really?) object of mohammed, to convert by force all of creation. The sooner the rest of the world realises this the better. Unfortunately the MSM thinks otherwise or they would have revealed this long ago. It somehow does not fit into their world of seeing the muslim nations as being exploited. The way I see it is that these nations have been exploited by their religion for centuries... Kept illiterate by rulers and clerics so they would not think for themselves.

Suikinkutsu - Water on glass

Reactions: 
A suikinkutsu (Japanese 水琴窟, literally: water koto cave) is a type of Japanese garden ornament and music device. Something I am adding to my "To Do" list. The sound they make is amazing.

It reminds me of a song by Blondie, Water on Glass... more on that later, here is the technology behind or under it all.

Sometimes it is a simple thing that posesses Glory, sometimes it is the fact that all creation is Glorious. Well someday I will build my own bit of Glory. Ok I gotta admit... I have always had a crush on Debbie Harry, the blonde from Blondie, here are the lyrics of the song that fits the theme...
Water on Glass - Blondie - Written by Ricky & Marty Wilde
Cascading down
There’s a sound vaporising into vision
It’s a sound in my head
That I feel and it shuts me in a prison
Say it won’t last
Say it will pass
Always the sound in my brain
Can you hear it

Water on glass running down again
Water on glass that sound
Water on glass running round again
Help me, the sound of running water’s
Coming down

Dancing away
Like the lights on a moving coloured river
Sounds in my head seem to run
And again I feel a shiver
Say it won’t last
Pray it will pass
Always that sound in my brain
Can you hear it (can you hear it)

Water on glass running down again
Water on glass that sound
Water on glass running round again
Help me, the sound of running water’s
Coming down
Water on glass running down again
Water on glass that sound
Water on glass running round again
Help me, the sound of running water’s
Coming down

Never shake the bucket of nuts before you're tied to the yak rope

Reactions: 
BBC NEWS World South Asia Asia's newest sport - yak skiing This quote was so funny I just had to use it as a blog. Seems like Yak Skiing may be fun... not much diffrent than Bungee jumping or Snowboarding down a glacier, I may just add it to my todo list! Speaking of latest sport, this weekend we have our first MotoQuad races, I hope it goes down well and everyone has a good dose of dirt racing fun. mmm Sometimes Quads remind me of a Yak let loose and just as unpredictable. Personally I prefer two wheels... much more predictable when one parts company in a moment of error...
PREDICTABLE - Delta Goodrem
I smile
You say I take your breathe away
You say you love me and you make
All the right promises to break

And when I turn around you're always there
Like that's the proof you really care
But I see right through you and
I think To myself

You're just so predictable
In every way
I want you to know I know your game
It's so unbelievable
how you never change
you won't get away
with loving me
you're just so predictable

I run
You say you won't give up the chase
You say you'll follow me anyplace
So you can make the same mistakes

You know just what to do
And how to use the best of you
To try and change my mind
But my eyes are opening this time
And I read you

You're just so predictable
In every way
I want you to know I know your game
It's so unbelievable
how you never change
you won't get away
with loving me
you're just so predictable

Now that I know your every move
How you gonna hide baby what you gonna do
Now that somebody knows the truth
About you and how you're just so

You're just so predictable
In every way I want you to know
I know your game
It's so unbelievable
how you never change
you won't get away
with loving me
you're just so predictable
