Slipknot – All Out Life

Sometimes I like to find other ways of messaging, usually when someone has already found the words to say it much better.  Plus Slipknot fucking rocks!  Excited for the new album.  Slightly older, but very effective message.  Seems fitting for the times.  So here’s one for the “Elites”.

Slipknot – All Out Life

[Verse 1]
What a world, the horizon’s
Coming like a hell-bent killing machine
Can’t afford to be the goddamn wreckage
Burn it all again at a million degrees
Calling all the adamant upper-level
Undefeated counterfeit cunts with a reason to fear
Throw away all the meaningless shit that’s clinging
The enemy is here, I said stop

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Give it to three
I’m gonna show you how to do it if you know what I mean
One by one against, give me the name
All you shiny pretty never-wills ruined the game
You hold all the keys, so the chains shouldn’t hold you
I know you heard me, I fucking told you

[Chorus]
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
We are not your kind
No excuses, I challenge you to all out fucking life

[Verse 2]
Drop that shit and put it on a pedestal
Children are afraid of the gods
Raise your hands and show me what’s impossible
That makes us even, never tell me the odds
What a bore, I’m getting stuck in a metaphor
I don’t wanna go to sleep
I need a breakdown quick in negotiations
Get it all together and remember to seethe, stop

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Give it to three
I’m gonna show you how to do it if you know what I mean
Drive by violence, more of the same
I can see where you’re going, and I’m really ashamed
Do you think when you act or just act like you’re thinking?
I gotta know now, you better tell me

[Chorus]
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
We are not your kind
I challenge you to all out life

[Bridge]
We are gathered here today to get it right
Repeat after me:
“I will not celebrate mediocrity
I will not worship empty shells
I will not listen to worthless noises
I will not subject myself to selected predictable choices
My time, my attention
My quality should not be bought and sold
For convenience’s sake, ever”

[Breakdown]
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind

[Chorus]
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
Pay attention, it’s gonna be a while ’til I really feel alright
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
We are not your kind
No excuses, I challenge you to all out fucking life

[Outro]
All out life, yeah
I challenge you to all out fucking life, yeah
Live, live, live, life

Slipknot – New Album – Tragic Loss

Words can not express the sadness in my heart for Clown and the loss of his daughter.  The passing of his loved one came as the band is getting ready to release their new album We Are Not Your Kind.

My hearts with you, your family, and the band.  Stay strong, you have a World full of maggots that are grieving along with you.

Maggot Re-Surfacing

I’m a Maggot.  When Slipknot hit the shelves, wasn’t but 500 miles or so away from their home town.  As kids, my friends and I, would blast our car stereos with “Surfacing” cranked at full volume.  We’d scare the hell out of old folks and others, not prepared for the throat ripping vocals.

Later in life, some good buddies of mine got signed by the Clown, and a record company just getting it’s feet wet with Metal.  Shitty ending for my friends in the band, but I was able to meet the Clown and Sid.  When I met the Clown, I hiked up my sleeve to show him my tattoo.  The tattoo is the lyrics from “Surfacing” as follows:

“Fuck it all! Fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don’t belong! Don’t exist!
Don’t give a shit!
Don’t ever judge me!”

He pointed to my tattoo, and said “If there is one message that we stand for, that is it right there.”

Be you.  Even if it’s not popular.  Always be true to yourself.

Battlefield V – Medic – The Art Of Dying

Music:  Gojira, The Art Of Dying

Although the developers have censored chat, avoided some of the most epic battles, (as of the time of this posting) and a few other minor details.  The game itself is a blast.  Still some bugs, and minute details to work out, but it’s nearly perfection already.  Gameplay is a mixture of Battlefield 4, and Battlefield 1, with new enhancements.  You also have the ability to customize your characters and weapons.  Current level caps are at 20 per class, and 50 at rank.

Recently rolled out was Tides of War.

Battlefield V Tides of War

Basic run down by class.

Assaults = Assault Rifles, Semi Auto/DMR’s, and Shotguns

Medics = SMG’s

Supports/Engineers = LMG’s, MMG’s, and Shotguns

Snipers = Bolt Action and Semi-Auto/DMR’s

Stoned as fuck playing Battlefield V is a riot.  Watch out for Kamikaze’s.

*9/10 Rating in my view so far.  Really close to a solid 10.  Thanks for the patch EA.  It only gets better.  Keep it up!
