Old Folks Say No

Old folks say no,
Young folks say go,
Away on a Segway,
Make way, make way!

Old folks say "don't!"
Young folks they won't,
Listen, listen you,
Tell it to some other dude!

Old folks they stop,
Old folks they drop,
Young folks they start,
New blood, huge hearts

Old folks seem...
Like they aren't too smart.
But you better listen,
To their wisdom.

Young folks, line up, take positions,
And take it slow! Go! Go! GO!

When The Moon Glows Red...

In a moment I'll be there,
In the field where all is clear,
All the sky and all the air,
In a moment I'll be there,
Hear the tunes inside my head,
See the moon it's shining red,
Time to party, time to feast,
Time to sleep? No, it's time to wake up
My inner beast

Mirrors & Spoons

See a mirror break,
That was my mistake #1.
Seven years of misfortune,
For every year of fun.
Seven months of winter,
For every month of sun,
But I'm sure I'll catch up to it,
If I just try to run.

I've made mistakes,
I've taken breaks,
Not accepted my first job -
It was a piece of cake,
It was easy peachy but I,
I had bigger plans.
Plans I now understand -
That life won't follow.

I see myself in the mirror today.
I'll see myself in a mirror tomorrow.
I'll see myself in a mirror caged, hollow!
And out of shape! Horrible outer scape!
I should eat powdered cake! To cure my depression,
Haven't learned my lesson? Guess it's time for confession,
Under a new moon I resume my spoonfuls of duplo gloom.
And see a mirror in the spoon.

It's Normal

I thought I wrote this on my way to work. I guess I did. I guess I'm lazy if I don't turn on my cellphone and retrieve it. I was going to post it then, but I had a mere five minutes before my shift. Not enough to view the Wifog commercial. The windows speak to me. Something like that. They tell me I've been here too long. Something like that. They tell me I should get out more. They tell me to be myself, to show my true feelings. To be transparent like they are. I tell them if I break them they'll be even more transparent. The windows speak no more. It's normal.


The EU soon intends to sign two far-reaching trade agreements: one with Canada (CETA = Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) and one with the USA (TTIP = Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership). The official line is that this will create jobs and increase economic growth. However, the beneficiaries of these agreements are not in fact citizens, but big corporations:

More info here. Or you can just sign the petition against it right away! If you happen to be a person with power, please do whatever it is that you have the power to do! In the long run the TTIP isn't a proposition that benefits anyone: not regular people, nor corporations. What's not good for the world affects us all, and this could have some pretty serious consequences. Spread the word!

The Maze Runner (2014)

The Maze Runner (2014)

A guy wakes up in an elevator, making his way into an enclosed quadrant of greenery, and soon stands in a pit surrounded by a band of teenagers and a maze that every night shifts positions. They've all lost their memories. They don't know who put them there, or who they are, but after a couple of days they do remember the one thing that truly matters: their names.

There are runners, a selected few who wander out into the surrounding maze and try to find a way out, and he immediately aspires to become one. The gate to the maze closes at dusk every day, and opens at dawn, but you don't want to be out in the maze at nightfall because the grievers are there, and nobody has ever survived a night.

That's how it starts, in an isolated place shrouded by mystery. How do they get out? What awaits them? And who's really on who's side? An intriguing premises that puts me in the same mood as the first time I stumbled upon Lost.

It also turned out to an action flick that kept me at the seat of my chair all the way through, and close to tears at the end. I wasn't expecting it to be that much better than say The Hunger Games, but when you don't know anything about the world outside; when the threat lies in the unknown as well as its very perceptible danger... well, this is the effect you get.

The sceneries, though most of it definitely CGI, all seemed very realistic. The actors were all great, though I just recognize Will Poulter from some other movie. Most of them seem to be actual teenagers (well, everyone's always a little older than they look in the movies), so it seems they might all be at the start of great careers with this one.

It's based upon a book, apparently, the first in a series, which leaves me hoping, and (after Googling), looking forward to the sequel! It should be coming out next year. Great watch.
