From one one the greatest rock albums ever recorded.....
thanks for that. thought i would return the favour.
with my favourite song from those guys.
i was on the crew at a concert they cancelled, which turned into a huge riot after the band did not show up. it was the chinese democracy tour only a few years ago. thousands of fans destroyed the exterior of the arena and tore through the streets.
a lot of people went to the hospital that day. the police started beating everyone guilty or innocent.
i missed the whole thing, because i was not scheduled to return to the building until showtime... a few hours after the announcement. i still showed up on time for work, but there was broken stuff everywhere. their fans truly had an "appetite for destruction"
well, it wasn't my job to fix anything, or clean up, so we helped the road crew pack their gear in the boxes, put the boxes in the trucks, just like every other rock show. the left town and i got paid.
when i think of queensryche, this is always the first song i think of.

My own memory of this video is watching it at age 16 I guess...late, late one night when I had a cold and couldn't sleep. It stuck with me.
super creepy song and video. it was full of triggers for me, especially the chorus. (going off topic a litte here) i have done extensive research into the mind-control nightmare. operations paperclip, pegasus, phoenix, monarch, mk-ultra, montauk, etc. it is a shame that they need children for their experiments.
extremely sick and shocking sociopathic social engineering. very disturbing to find out that fact is more f--cked than fiction. ** TRIGGER WARNING **
it ain't pretty. it is noisy, distorted, chaotic, ugly

College was about to wind down and I was in a funk because the real world scared the hell out of me:
my generation had its own disease for sure. we grew up with nihilism, and then we were struck down with aids. the first wave of that epidemic wiped out half of my friends in the 80's. most people got it before we even knew it existed. i was either lucky or immune. but i had to witness friends, family, and associates die.
"learning to fly, but i ain't got wings coming down, it the hardest thing. well the good ol' day may not return and the rocks might melt and the sea may burn...
----------------------------------------------- during that time, i began the long, lonely, narrow path of masturbation, monogamy and eventually marriage. so in a way, aids saved my life. going from absolute amorality to abstinence under the threat of death. it was easy to commit, but hard to follow through. many times i fell or snuck back into old patterns of risky behaviour. it was having children that really made me WANT to clean up my act. eventually this adventure ended up with me reading the bible a lot. when the bible started to make sense to me, i knew that i was now truly insane, or that i had finally found something spiritual that worked for me. -------- this whole topic of music is a mine-field of triggers. it also a treasure trove of keys and combinations to the locks on our minds.
"i am immune to you, you are immune to me, we are both sick souls with the same disease"
this "topic" turned from something fun and nostalgic into a profound soul-searching journey.
as i listen to the songs i have not heard for years (now with headphones and an old man's perspective), plus the new ones being posted by my fellow survivors... deep patterns are beginning to emerge.
we'll all just have to learn to "shake the disease"
