Mute tongues speak the forbidden
The periodic spray
Uttering of filth every day
Spreading of a fake fact
Credibility is still intact
Blank faces believe
Chinese whispers with a trick up their sleeve
Corruption is but a mirror
Its reflection a new lie with every shimmer
Black light reveals the hidden
Mute tongues speak the forbidden

Letter from the sun
Enjoy my rays
Don’t take me for granted
I may not make my presence known for days
But don’t let your faces get all slanted
I make the grass green
The birds sing and fly
Provide life for everything that has ever been
Give the day joy but nobody ever questions why
I turn the darkest days into a scene so picturesque
You need sunglasses iIm so bright
You may not notice but without me things would be grotesque
I promise to give you never ending light
The summer has just begun
Make the most of it and life
Regards the Sun

Hidden Indication Of An Accident
Right I don’t usually use my blog as a place to moan . But today im going to make a massive exception.
Today as I was driving on my way to work , someone in a BMW ( Now I don’t want anyone to make any assumptions here but they would be correct) decided it was perfectly ok for them to go in the outside lane cutting out all the traffic , and then cut in last minute right in front of me. While I don’t usually care about this kind of thing this time it got to me, I was travelling at 40 mph at this point but the other car must have been doing 60/70mph. The prat in the BMW cut right in front and I had to slam on my brakes as did the car behind me, otherwise I would have hit the back of him/her. Now I’m not sure if they understand the English road laws (Car was from Belgium) but I’m pretty sure you have to leave enough room and not cause another driver to slam on their brakes hoping that they don’t die. The worst thing for me however was the fact that the driver hadn’t indicated (or at least that’s what I originally thought). The driver had in fact indicated but was using those stupid tinted rear lights. They were incidentally tinted so dark that they were literally useless!
Now many of those of you out there will be thinking I’m over exaggerating to because you have them yourself will be able to say I’m being stupid. But I have good eyesight if I didn’t see it imagine someone older, it’s just a recipe to cause accidents (seriously why hasn’t someone invented a car that can’t turn without its indicators on yet!)
I don’t want to have an accident because some inconsiderate person decides in order to make their car look “cool” they need to make it so other road users have no clue what they are doing !
I don’t actually mind people having them tinted as long as they still work for what they are intended, the indicators should still be visible and at night the red reflectors should still work, is it really so much to ask for ?
Nirvana and KISS inducted to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Nirvana were among the acts inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Grunge legends Nirvana have finally been enlisted in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, alongside the band KISS and the Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
REM’s Michael Stipe inducted the group saying” They tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard! Nirvana were kicking against the mainstream, they spoke the truth and people listened”.
Krist Novoselic ( Nirvana’s Bass guitarist) said “ Nirvana fans walk up to me every day and say thank you for the music!”
The bands eventful career was sadly cut short when Kurt Cobain died in 1994. His widow, Courtney Love attended the ceremony and said.
“ You know , I have a big speech , but I’m not going to say it” ( She said before hugging Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl)” That’s it I just wish Kurt was here to do this”.
Courtney and Krist have clashed over Nirvana’s legacy in the past but it appears very much so that they have now put aside their differences.
Michael Stipe went on to say “Nirvana were singular and loud and melodic and deeply original” ( And apparently Michael likes the word (and))
Courtney Love and Krist Novoselic, who have clashed over Nirvana’s legacy in the past, put aside their differences
Nirvana “were singular and loud and melodic and deeply original,” said Michael Stipe
Nirvana performed at the ceremony with the help of Lorde, St Vincent and Kim Gordon.
Dave Grohl, Nirvana’s drummer and current frontman of rock group Foo Fighters , paid tribute to the musicians who formed the early line ups of Nirvana in particular drummer Chad Channing who he singled out for his contributions to the bands breakthrough album Nevermind.
Novoselic added “ When Nirvana fans say thank you for the music I immediately think of Kurt”.
Nirvana received their place in the hall of fame in their first year that they were eligible. Artists can only be inducted 25 years after the first release.
Other honourees included Bruce Springsteen’s band E street band, some 15 years after he was inducted for his solo career.
He said “ I told a story with the E street band that was , and is , bigger than anything I could have told on my own”
“ We suffered ageing, illness and death together” “ We took care of each other when trouble knocked and we hurt each other in big and small ways. But in the end we stuck with each other.
Kiss accepted their awards without their trademark face paint; they were one of the more controversial inductees, having pulled out of a performance at the ceremony over a disagreement about their line-up.
The band famous for their elaborate stage make up and costumes, wanted to play with their current line-up , including founders Gene Simmonds and Paul Stanley , which caused friction with retired members Ace Frehley and Peter Criss
The quartet made peace and saluted each other in heartfelt induction speeches
“This is a pivotal moment for all of us, we are all very humbled that the fans gave us the chance to do what we loved doing” Gene Simmons said.
