The Fight for Power (Part 3)

Posted by ghostpipe73 on April 5, 2009

If the all-powerful one of Sarawak were to fall one day, who would be powerful enough to replace him?

Perhaps those who are most oppressed now, would be annihilated, by those who now have the most bread and butter in stock.

We are looking at the possibility of self-inflicting genocidal tendencies now, a fast-approaching subculture bred by those who truly despise the white-haired man.

Whether any good or bad it will bring, who knows.

The Fight for Power (Part 2)

Posted by ghostpipe73 on April 5, 2009

If the Earth were impatient, we’d all be toast right now. Fortunately for us, she isn’t.

Therefore, we should do our best to be kind to her.

The Fight for Power (Part 1)

Greed knows no limit, if the sword of greed were wielded by the God of Greed himself.

What’s to become of Sarawak, Borneo in the next 5 years to come?

He’s got a lot to prove this man, God help him

Posted by ghostpipe73 on January 27, 2009

To be one of the world’s most powerful leader is probably what most of us would only dream of becoming. To some it’s a job come true.

This guy has a hell of a lot to prove. If he screws up just by a tiny bit, man what lucrative headlines that would make to the media world.

All the best, Mr President.

Let It Rain

Posted by ghostpipe73 on January 16, 2009

Rock and opera. Something not down my alley but some things are good even though they are not down your alley.

Jon Bon Jovi and the late Pavarotti. Liberia ’98.

This is a good one.

Those who suffer the most

Posted by ghostpipe73 on January 15, 2009

Happy new year 2009 to all.

It’s now becoming a norm for us to hear or read news about human sufferings due to human-inflicted activity, such as war, famine, epidemic outbreak, human error resulting in fatality, political upheaval, etc.

The ever-growing trend I notice is that those who suffer the most in almost all these circumstances and calamity can do very little, or not at all, to help alleviate their suffering.

Take the war-torn Gaza strip for example, the simplest and most common of examples. Who suffers the most? Take a guess. And what can they do to help themselves? Not very much. Who’s war is it anyway?

That’s a war example. Something closer to home would be the relocation of communities affected by dam projects, e.g. Murum hydroelectric dam. See link below for some non-affiliated-to-this-blog news:

Sad world. But of course, I believe if you want to turn the tide around, those who suffer the most must first change their mindset to believe that they can help themselves. Belief is first, for without it you can never have anything.

Dissident – how much crap can one take (or talk about)?

Posted by ghostpipe73 on October 27, 2008

This song reminded me of the time when I realised that I didn’t know what I wanted to believe in, so I resorted to becoming overly cynical of the things around me and finally evolved rather rapidly into a 90s ramshackle subliminal dissident.

How much crap one can take or talk about, is entirely proportional to how long you can pull your earlobes before you feel this excruciating pain.

Eddie Vedder’s lyrics rocks.

Melamine’s the Word

Posted by ghostpipe73 on September 28, 2008

China has once again literally made herself a household name, just over a month after the devastatingly controversial-laden Beijing 2008 Olympics ended. This time it’s due to some chemical substance found in a common but very important household item that has been causing the loss of lives among some significant number of infants and serious illness in countless others.

Voluntary suicide does not even begin to describe this vicious, irresponsible act by some of the local industries producing the milk products being aggressively removed off the shelf permanently. What struck me the most as a tragedy worse than the tragedy itself is, they are killing their own people! Now ain’t that the dumbest thing to do. It’s not voluntary suicide anymore, it’s voluntary genocide.

I can only think of 3 reasons why these people did what they did – money, money and money.

Indeed, they will be able to beat the US to be the world’s No.1 economy, at the expense of deleting off some of the more insignificant citizens out of their 2 billion or so population.

I have very little respect for this kind of mentality, be it from these milk makers or anyone else out there who, in the name of money, would have the audacity to de-value human life in order to create infinite profits.

What a screwed up society.

The richer they get, the dumber they become.

I hope those innocent little children who are suffering from the melamine poisoning effects will survive and get better. Someone has to pay for this atrocity.

Faith No More – The Epic

Posted by ghostpipe73 on September 7, 2008

1994 was the year this song made it to the charts. I was still a 6th former then. About the same time Rage Against the Machine made it big. And a whole host of other new era of rock bands.  Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots.

The eerie piano ending is a definite haunting.

These Hard Times

Posted by ghostpipe73 on August 16, 2008

Another great song from Rob Thomas and his buddies from Matchbox 20.  His lyrics make sense straight away, you hardly need to read between the lines for its meaning.
