The soul of 2019

We are in here again! I and WD salute you all our earthling friends! As you can guess today, our traditional new year song is from Iron Maiden again; Up to Irons! 😉

I think this one will be more suitable for the soul of year of 2019. Like in its lyrics:
“Have you ever felt the future is the past, but you dont know how…?
A reflected dream of a captured time, is it really now, is it really happening?”

I think when we live in 2019, we will feel that “all these happened before, and it is happenning again.” Maybe we have read similar things in history. Even if the names change, the events are not too much different. I think humans are not getting smarter years by years. They do make same mistakes. I hope everyone can find own way in the oncoming cloudy future. And while doing this, I am sure that friends and the loved ones will give the strength to you when you need it! Because if there is a hope, this hope will come with accompanying of theirs! Whatever it will come, you still don’t lose our hopes in the dream mirrors. 😉

Like WD. 🙂 I have read his yearly horoscope for 2019 to WD. His sign is Taurus. This was written on his horoscope:
“This year, the dinner events which are open buffet in foreign languages, are not expecting to you. People are in crisis now. Even one olive piece is being calculated. We recommend you diet. It is in your hand to change the food pyramid completely.”

His reaction has been like that: “I do not like open buffets already. My choice is always elegant dinners with my lady dog lover privately. If I would go to open buffet, how I can close to my lover in that crowd!”

As you can see he never loses his hope.:))

By the way between us my earthling friends, that horoscope comment that I have read to WD was from Zaytung. Haha! If he realizes…

-Damn you Migo! So, you did read my horoscope from Zaytung! I knew that something was wrong on it! And you are telling these to my beloved followers, my dear friends! How dare you!

-Calm down WD. It was just a joke. 😎

-I cannot be calm down Migo! Do you know how much I was ruined when I thought that I have lost all invites for open buffets, all good foods! My sorrow is not a joke!

-Okay. Do you want to listen what your real horoscope sign tells?

-NO! I do not want! You can foolish me again!

-I will not do in this time.

-No Migo, you broke my heart!

-Are you sure you don’t want to listen. It is really good things are written. Even it says that a new love could be seen in 2019 for you, a special one.

-Really?

-Yes, really.

-All right, just in this time, you can read. But only this time. I am still angry, but I can forgive you just in this time. It’s not because of that I’m curious about my new love; it is because of I am a dog with very big heart!

-Okay I am reading…

🙂

And, WD and I wish to all you healty (as mind and body:)), peaceful and happy new year with your loved ones!

See you next year 😉

Mutlu Yeni Yıllar! — С новым годом! — Happy New Year!

Another “Updated” year, 2018

Again traditionally, we give our new year message with a song of Iron Maiden like previous years. I do not write its lyric this year. I can just say that, music and lyrics are very good, as always. 😎

And, I am thinking how the year of 2017 passed. I see that one thing came forward prominently:

Update

I realize that I was plenty updated in 2017!

Life on the planet earth has always kept me energetic. In 2017, I was more energetic because I was constantly updated.

“Updating” is not my statement. This is the new name of the “price increase” to almost every price pulls out of the public’s pocket, from the roads to the bridges toll, from the electricity to the milk or to the tomato (in a very wide range) by the government wing generally used this year. The government’s economy authorities does not say “price increase” anymore; instead of “increased” they use “updated.” The word of “increased” almost will be removed from the literature.

I’ve also had the pleasure of updating myself abundantly!

I didn’t miss the opportunity!

For example, when I learned how to live on with a salary increase of up to maximum 8% per year, I have been updated with pleasing.

While the salary was raised up to maximum 8%, I was happier when hearing the 50% or more updating of electricity bill, food prices, transportation expenses or etc at the same time. (according to consumer associations calculations, for example, 51 Turkish liras are the taxes of 100 Turkish liras electricity bill) Because I had been updated again!

When I was in the update mode, I’ve found myself by thinking on how it would be like to bring Tesla to this time and to make free electricity for the public. Time machine is the only way to bring him to this era! If I would be updated so much, maybe I could invent a time machine!

I thought how I might be more up-to-date, while I am more updated. Because, you are so much updated that you are feeling yourself like brand-new beyond time!

For example, due to even straw was imported from abroad countries (and according to news of November, the prices of straw were raised 100% in 3 months), the price of milk of the cows who ate straw has also “increased”; sorry Updated!

But wait a minute! The cows are also imported from Germany, Austria and etc.

I wonder, do they milk the cowIs on the ships while they came; I do not know. Even thinking about it, has updated me.

When the price of raw milk has updated 20 Turkish kurush (about 7 cents), caused to update milk products such as cheese with 40% plus price at markets, updated me more! For example, right now the news said that the updating champion was butter in 2017; January 2017 1kg butter was 25 Turkish liras–December 2017 1 kg same brand butter is 65 Turkish lira.

I am never mentioning the price of gasoline, as long as I started to use public transport more, I realized that I was not considering gasoline money anymore.

But then when “updated” price comes to public transport, I think, the best is bicycle. If it would not be, we will run.

I do not know how can I be updated while I run, but I am certain to find a way!

Next to all of them, it was the bread that disappointed me! I wanted to be updated with it, but it did not. Even last month, a news has fallen to the newspapers: “230 thousand tons of wheat will be imported” (No, Anatolia is not a “wheat silo” of the region anymore, until ten years ago, it was; like eveything, the wheat comes from abroad.) I was so happy when saw that news! I was waiting a “great” update with the new bread prices! But it has not happened! Authorities reduce the weight of the bread instead of the update! So, a lower weight bread was going to be taken with the same price. It was a complete disappointment for me!

By the way,

I am not a selfish extraterrestrial, so I have not forgotten my earthling friends, while I was constantly updated. Of course they are being updated too. But I thought maybe they did not notice this yet, and I did them a favor.

Every new year eve, I buy books as present. But the book prices have also been updated almost 30% in this year. This year I’ve bought “one” book(novel) for two friends; it was expensive because the book was at the updated price. I divided down the middle of the book in two, copied it’s back and face covers via printer. I wrote “Volume One” on the first part, and “Volume Two” on the other. I glued the covers face to both. I gave the first volume (that is actually the first half of the book) to an earthling friend, and the second volume(rest of the book) to the other. I updated them as well and strengthened their friendship by providing them to exchange books with each other. Haha!

-What are you planning to do next year, Migo? Will you give the pages of the book one by one to the people!

-Hmmm, maybe, why not WD? That’s a good idea.

-It’s not a good idea, Migo! You alien, this is not a good idea! I cannot believe I will spend another year with you, Migo! Damn!

-So, don’t we wish “happy new year” for us?

-Let’s just say that! It would bring end your crap at least! Happy New Year, my beloved readers! Also, you see what I am dealing with!

-Happy new year my earthling friends! We know that we will be updated more in 2018. But even if it would be with the updates, the good part is that we still be all together in peace and good health. 😉

Mutlu Yeni Yıllar! — С новым годом! — Happy New Year!

About 2017

Welcome to our traditional new year’s post, my Earthling friends! 🙂 Yes, again we will open the new year with a song from Iron Maiden. Up the Irons! Yahuuuu!

This has been kind of totem for WD and me. We already listen this fabulous band in every day of whole year. But we cannot find a proper time for adding in any post in whole year, except the new year’s eve, because of the full effective news of the world agenda.

-My agenda is always related with lady dogs, beer and good foods. You speak for yourself Migo!

-Ok my agenda, WD.

-You see! You confess!

-Can you let me continue to this post.

-All right, but not for you. I am a sensetive dog and I am thinking my beloved followers not you alien!

And, last year our song from Iron Maiden was “No more lies”. This year our expectations again are very realistic from 2017. This new year is coming like a birth child of 2016. This new born child is not full with happiness, and I am sorry for saying this. But it will excatly same with the song.

Everyone’s waiting for something to happen
Everybody’s waiting for something to see
Lunatics waiting for bigger disasters
Everyone’s waiting for news on TV

Winding lives at the end of the spiral
Waiting dictators with their next big thrill
Everyone’s looking but no one is listening
Everybody wants to be in at the kill

I wait for the signs, they tell me true
I see the signs of the end time

Everyone’s searching but nothing’s revealing
Everyone’s looking for the reason why
Everyone’s hoping for life everafter
Everyone’s looking at death from the sky

Everyone’s nightmares are going to happen
Everybody’s ripping the mask from their eyes
Everyone’s praying but no one’s believing
Everybody’s heroes tell everyone’s lies

I wait for the signs, they tell me true
I see the signs of the end

So I watch and I wait and I pray for an answer
An end to the strife and the world’s misery
But the end never came and we’re digging the graves
And we’re loading the guns for the kill

Can the end be at hand?
Is the face in the sand, future memory of our tragedy?
Can the end be at hand?
Is the face in the sand, future memory of our tragedy?

….

I’d like to write good things about the hopes. But the hope sometimes could bring devistate, if it is build on empty-dreams. This is what the planet we live in, my Earthling friends!

But can you ask me, is there any way out of this bad situation? Yes, of course it is! There is always a way out!

Let me I tell you a joke about it.

To escape from the mental hospital, the mental patients make a plan. According to the plan they have done, if the hospital’s garden walls are high, they will dig down the bottom of the wall, and if the hospital’s garden walls are low, they will run away by jumping over it. They would pick one of them to measure the walls’ height. The patient goes to the garden border and passes back for telling his observations to the others:

“No walls in the garden, friends, we can not escape from here.”

🙂

The humanity is on the same point in here! There are no barriers exactly, but the barriers have found a place for themselves in he brains as if they were in real. In fact, for every subject, a way out can be found.

As the same great commander Hannibal said, “we would find new ways or open new ways!”

This must be the way of mankind, or more precisely for enlightened and awakened human beings, as of this year. Because for both 2017 and others will come, the heights of the non-walls will increase more and more years by years. To not squeeze in front of barriers, not to be squeezed by 1% of the human beings who are always mentioned, before it’s too late.

“We would find new ways, or open new ways!”

This planet is very precious to not to be left to the hands of %1!

-Will you finish the post Migo, the world will opening the first day of the new year, but you still write! In the minutes a reporter from Kiribati will give the news!

-Oh yes, you right!

-Come on Migo!

-And for the enlightened and awakened human beings also all creatures both animals and plants, we wish a healthy and peacefull year!

-To the others?

-Do they deserve any good wishes, WD? 😉

Happy new year! Mutlu yeni yıllar! С новым годом!

It has been a year full of lies, as before
It has been a year full of hopes, as before
It has been a year full of sadness, as before
It has been a year full of happiness, as before

on the name of humanity…

Actually I feel myself lucky because of I came to this planet 🙂 You can’t see this mix in anywhere at the universe except Earth. You can laugh and one minute later you can see a bad thing that hurts. At the most hopeless moment, the human being can find a hope light. Even this light is tiny shape and they have to ability to hold this tiny light. Every thing is lived on the name of surviving like every living creature did, in here.

And I am sure that as an extraterrestrial:)

New year 2016 will be a year full of lies, like this year
It will be a year full of hopes, like this year
It will be a year full of sadness, like this year
It will be a year full of happiness, like this year

on the name of humanity.

We will be waiting every unforseen events, my Earthling friends. We will be angry for every injustice events, and we will try to correct in our ways. We will make jokes for every absurdity and universe will hear us by wishing “we want to laugh”. 🙂

These that human being kept in the hands. These are mankind’s power, there is nothing more…

WD and I wish to you my Earthling friends, a happy and healthy new year!

Happy new year!
Mutlu yeni yıllar!
С новым годом!

See you next year 😉

PS: And if you ask why Iron Maiden has been your choice, some of you know that I love the most this band on this planet. I do not believe the religions’ gods, you know. Religions’ gods seem to me as fantastic hero for me. Maybe worse, because they don’t answer any help calling of human being 🙂 And because there is nothing upper this planet, there is just universe. But I believe there are some gods on this planet. Iron Maiden is god of Heavy Metal like Judas Priest for me. Up the Irons! (Yes I have to say this:) And much the same music there are the some literature gods like Isaac Asimov, Umberto Eco, Aziz Nesin or etc for me. And my music and literature gods always answer my call in everywhere I am:) Thank you all them! Anyway, that’s why I chose 🙂

Dost

“Dost” word is Turkish word. There is no correspond of this word in another language completely. “Dost” word is the combination of two words “friendship and brotherhood”, but it is more valuable and stronger than two of them. If you accepted to someone or some creature as “dost”, he/she/it would be your next in a life time, as being physical or not.

The beauty of life, is to share it with “dostlar.” Dostlar is plural form of dost word. Whether you’re from this planet or not, the important thing is what you have accumulated to your life with your dostlar.

The song at the video, which sang by Group Yorum, it tells very well to this. Song belongs a Turkish folk poet Asık Mahzuni Serif. Lyrics as follows:

Here! I am leaving, my black eyed
Even if the mountains line up in front of us
My bedevilment is my capital, my fortune is my bereavement
Even if my good fortune is getting worse
I want to walk around supreme mountains for long time
Dost left me into sorrow
I want to sing at devastated vineyards
Even if the heaven is brought in front of my foot

Group Yorum sang this song in their 25. anniversary concert that they gave in Istanbul-Inonu Stadium which is legendary stadium of Besiktas football team. That concert has occured with the participation of 55.000 people. I was not in here that days. Two years later, I watched Iron Maiden concert in Inonu Stadium in 26 July, 2013 with my dostlar. This was the last concert before this legendary stadium was destroyed. Even some of us had planned taking one or two seats of stadium out as souvenir. After all, they will go to garbage, they could be historical souvenir. But it couldn’t be possible:) Iron Maiden concert was great. Better yet, Iron Maiden concert was given the Gezi Park resistance days. Even all we sang the “Fear of the dark” as “Fear of the Park”. That was the spirit of resistance, and to live this with Iron Maiden was spectacular! Anyway, that’s another issue 🙂

If we return back to Group Yorum, they are legendary music band which has left-wing as you can understand with their songs. They render the Anatolian folk songs in an original way. Even their concerts were taken under review by state many times. Already, the state doesn’t like left-wing. There are many words of Nazim Hikmet or Asık Veysel inside their songs. Already, the state doesn’t like them either. Anti-imperialism is inside of their songs. For example, like this song:

For listen:Get out America

And it’s lyric:

We’ve never bent in front of you, while we hold our head high
We are standing in front of you.
We are owner this country as sons of this nation
You America, afraid of us
Hey you, the god of persecution
Nuisance of humanity
Get out get out America!
Get your hands off my bread, my honor
Get out America
Our scream is growing with independece fire
This homeland is ours!
We will throw out your tanks your soldiers your existence from our homeland!

Turkey was never independent from 1950’s to today’s. It has been under USA hegemony. Thousands of people who aware of this have resisted, have been tortured, and killed. And still they are resisting. And this song is “Yankee go home” song of Turkey.

Another “dost” song is “Dostum, dostum”. Dostum means “my dost”. And if you want to listen “Dostum dostum” song with Selda Bagcan, here it is

lyrics of “Dostum dostum”:

I am in such a place that
One of my side is blue moss, and it would become rough in blue waters
Dostum dostum my beatiful dost
What a worse line this is,
What a infuriating balance this is,
One of our side is dropping leaves
The other side of ours is blossom garden

An another “dost” song belongs to Asık Veysel: “Dostum, I don’t want to any wealth without you”. There are numerous songs that have written for “dost” in Anatolia.

I have made many “dost” in Turkey. I have made many “dost” who against imperialism in diffrent parts on this planet. We laughed a lot of with together. I learned a lot of things from them. I have lived many good things with them, and I am living still. Some of them lost their lives, they don’t breathe on this planet anymore. But even if they breathe or not, wherever I go, they are always with me.

And another day

And if you’re taking a walk through the garden of life
What do you think you’d expect you would see?
Just like a mirror reflecting the moves of your life
And in the river reflections of meJust for a second a glimpse of my father I see
And in a movement he beckons to me
And in a moment the memories are all that remain
And all the wounds are reopening again

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

And as you look all around at the world in dismay
What do you see, do you think we have learned
Not if you’re taking a look at the war-torn affray
Out in the streets where the babies are burned

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothersThere are time when I feel I’m afraid for the world
There are times I’m ashamed of us all
When you’re floating on all the emotion you feel
And reflecting the good and the bad

Will we ever know what the answer to life really is?
Can you really tell me what life is?
Maybe all the things that you know that are precious to you
Could be swept away by fate’s own hand

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

When you think that we’ve used all our chances
And the chance to make everything right
Keep on making the same old mistakes
Makes untipping the balance so easy
When we’re living our lives on the edge
Say a prayer on the book of the dead

We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers, we’re blood brothers

And if you’re taking a walk through the garden of life

Iron Maiden-Blood Brothers

 Today, ISIS that was created and are fed by American imperialism and supported by many governments with American government; so this barbaric terrorist organization attacked to Turkish border patrol on Turkey-Syria border Kilis. One noncommissioned officer died and 4 private injured.

Turkish military air forces and land forces are on alert, right now.

Did Turkey entry into the war? They have been already at war for decades. Noone knows how many ISIS militants are inside the Syrian refugess which is number about 2.5 million in Turkey. American government has to know. Because USA made the Syrian refugees camps in Turkey.

USA governement was using PYD that is arm of PKK terrorist organization against ISIS, but it was not enough. Because it needs to do more to create power for north Kurds aisle. And it has to show own victory to the American people.

American government was wanting permission to use the Incirlik-Adana, Turkey airbase. And after the last three days, they got this permission from Turkish government. What a surprise!

Two days ago, 32 young people were killed yesterday four police officers were killed in Turkey and today soldiers. Innocent people continue to die every day. And all humanity has responsible of all.

But American politicians still did not understand. Terrorism is like boomerang. No escape from it. It will return to the hands of ones who threw it out .

Why do I love the most Iron Maiden? Because this amazing band has a proper song for almost every day for this planet. Today, everyone is BLOOD BROTHER with each other on my eyes.

That the world as we know it will be coming to an end, have you heard?

…Have you seen what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what they said about us all?
Do you know what is happening to just every one of us
Have you heard, have you heard?…

“When the wild wind blows” is a song that made by Steve Harris, which was added to “The Final Frontier” album in 2011. Song lyric tells that how the mankind will mess the earth up with a nuclear blast. Especially, when “the nuclear weapon”words are heard in every time, this song would echo in the brain cells. As result, it’s so good.

In addition, we see that Steve Harris seriously affected the animation, which was made by Japanese-born American animator and director Teruaki “Jimmy” Murakami`s When the Wind Blows in 1986. The good works nourish to the good work.

Anyway, what were we saying? Up the Irons! 🙂
