The song that you listen while the economic crisis is rising

Today I have read one of my earthling friend, Nick’s post: Economic Chaos 100 years later

After a little while read his post, I have seen another title in Turkish social network “eksisozluk”. The title was “The song you listen while 1 dollar goes to 5 TL”

Right now, 1 dollar is equal 4.83 Turkish Liras.

Today, it would seem that my front, my back, my right, my left, all my sides are economic crisis. 🙂

The economic crisis does not affect only ordinary people in the world, it affects extraterrestrials like us. (Do not believe in science fiction movies, we do not spend our lives on this planet with the lightsabers in hand or super-advanced equipments. We do not even have an union.:)) That’s why I have picked my song. Here it is. It is Cem Karaca’s song in Anatolian-rock genre from 1999.

The song that is quite entertaining, as can be understood from its rhythm. It’s lyrics are sarcastic. And here it’s lyrics: -I have translated only some parts because it is very long-

We’ve boarded on something really big, we go to the end of the world. (amanin)
Road you said, like every road
it should reach a place
While we turn and turn around
we come always to the same place
This cycle is vicious cycle
There is no begining and no end
I am turning but I can not turning back
There is no exit at the end
(amaninnn)

We’ve boarded on something really big, we go to the end of the world (amaninnn)

Local and general election
You select, let’s select
So we turn and turn around of it
we come always to the same place

Old times, we were like every man
We sat down and ate appetizers
Now, like eating appetizers
we sit and eat the man.
Then, you get your deserts!

What is really going to happen at the end of these things
In truth, there is no question “what will be”
We will turn, we will turn, we will come back to the same place

There is no begining and no end
I am turning but I can not turning back
There is no exit at the end
(amaninnn)

We’ve boarded on something really big, we go to the end of the world,

let’s dance!

We’ve boarded on something really big, we go to the end of the world.(amaninnn)

What is your song my earthling friends, that you listen while the economic crisis is rising? 🙂

Just want to listen

On this planet, I loved the most 3 things made by humans. First, good humor which is the gleam of intelligence. Second, good heavy metal music- mostly guitar sounds into this music genre. Third, good books. Except these three, for the others I am not sure I love or not.

And most people think that, escpecially good heavy metal or metal bands comes out from west. In first look, probably they can be right, truthfully when thinking the metal genre borned in west, this leads that this genre has more opportunity to develop itself in western countries. Actually, the real struggle has become at east. Many band at eastern contries, on the contrary their countries’ music culture, that eastern metal bands worked harder more than their western equivalents. Because, they did not have to chance becoming popular like the western metal bands. These happened in the days when internet wasn’t widespread in global scale.

When internet fulls around the people, everybody got the chance to listen many music bands from almost every corner of the planet. And the people saw that SOME THINGS HAVE NO LIMITS; like metal music.

They saw that the good representers of this genre in young generation, has been rising from east. Even these eastern young representers started to become more good than the many western bands, compared to western equivalents in their age groups.

I want to share two of them into these eastern new genaration metal musicians. Both two of them is from Russia. I always believe that I do have good taste in heavy metal genre and some subcategories of metal genre, as the representer of the extraterrestrials on this planet.:) However, I think, you need to listen and you need to decide I am right or wrong, my earthling friends.

First, Dmitry Demyanenko, Дмитрий Демьяненко. He is guitarist and composer of the “Shokran” band. He was born in 1991.

Here is one of his songs and performance:

The other is Sergey Golovin, Сергей Головин. I could not find his birth date, but I guess, he was borned in early 1990’s like Dmitry. But, on the contrary Dmitry, Sergey is kind of a lone wolf.:) He makes instrumental albums by himself. Even I have read in a review, in his “Changes” album, Golovin wrote all the material, he arranged all by himself and played the guitar, bass guitar, keyboard instruments, and also programmed the drums.

Here is one of his songs and performance:

What do you think, am I right about them? 😉

You can see that many people from western countries, they put the good comments below performances on youtube of the “Shokran” band, Dmitry Demyanenko and Sergey Golovin. Because the music listeners give the good musicans their due without discrimination west or east. Also for me, “Shokran” band, Dmitry Demyanenko and Sergey Golovin are successful from now. I feel the reflection on me of mood of their rhythms in their musics; even like I can hold it and shape it. This is success. I belive that, we will hear their names and musics more a lot in next years.

While the politicians(mostly western politicians) try to drive each other into corner and separate the people in whole world, music is gathering. I do not want to hear the statements of politicians, the world’s dirty politics, all the contentless and unnecessary talks, also propagandist words, I want to listen only good music, next to the voice of nature. Let’s give hope to survive of the planet on the name of good music!

Надеюсь, однажды я могу слушать вас на том же этапе на концерте. Также после концерта мы можем говорить о музыке, и отражение этого в космосе. 🙂 Спасибо, Сергей, Дмитрий и Shokran за ваше существование на этой планете!

 

 

 

 

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!

Palestine…

Cold in the night my mind is freezin
Why do they fool me how disgracin
Meaningless war, no one can leave it
Why do they live on people bleedin

Hiding this truth, we kill the peace, man
Pray for these thousands in the eastland, thousands in the east…

Lie on the ground, I’ll still be thinkin
How they accept this life in true sin
Unreal is the peace, that we still believe in
I hear this sound of madness growin

Fighting with hatred feeds the rich men
Pray for these thousands in the eastland, thousands in the east…

…..

*Pentagram is Turkish heavy metal band; but at this song, “1000 in the Eastland” the lyric is in English. It has great music, great melody, great lyrics!

Happy 3rd anniversary

It’s been 3 years from the day when we started blogging. Unlike the 1st and 2nd anniversaries, this time today I feel like a truck crossed over me. I’ve been ill for a week, and I can not tell you that I’m still good. But more fine I guess.

Last week I had a chance to think about what’s missing in these years.

WD and I thought about this too much. No, no, not too much actually, just it came to our minds. 🙂

Looking at the years of war in the history of the world, it is obvious that everything is the same or very similar with todays. There is war, there is a cold war, there are stupid managements, there is hunger, there is poverty and etc.

What is missing in today’s, unlike the previous ones? There are no songs and singers who can help to mankind survive at the period. I have added the magnificent Leonid Kharitonov from Vietnam War and cold war years in here. I guess what I mean will be understandable when you listen his song.

 

 

And, Happy 3rd anniversary with you all, my Earthling friends!

 

 

Despite all bad things, the spring has come to Asia Minor and Mediterranean also beyond east

Come with me to the Eastern Mediterranean and beyond…

I get to experience new customs and new cultures which I feel makes me a better and wiser person. There’s a lot that we read and hear about when it comes to other parts of the world but actually visiting and experiencing another country in person is quite different. It’s a big world out there. […]
