Those who hope that something will change in 2022, raise your hand! yeah! There isn’t much, I know. 🙂 The planet has been a madhouse literally for the past two years, and everyone has felt to be in a tight corner. When I say everyone, I mean ordinary citizens, of course. We are faced with a virus that does not infect the rich, and even the rich have become healthier and wealthier thanks to this virus.
I think that in 2022, everyone who feels stuck in a corner will come out of their place and decide to face this madhouse. Of course, the play makers can also expand the corners and boundaries of the madhouse in this sense, and new scenarios can be added end-to-end. This would certainly be a move to be expected for them. So it will be another difficult year for ordinary citizens. A new virus or variant, yeah maybe; food crisis, yeah probably; financial crises yeahh high possibility; more police states, definitelly!
I would like to say that everyone should prepare themselves, but there is not much to prepare. I think you just have to stand up, against everything that can happen. Because I have never given up hope on humanity, I know that these times will pass, even if there are great destructions!
-Are you going to stop giving speeches, Migo? -Speech? -I honestly don’t care if the planet looks like madhouse besides what we’ve been through with Zed, who has been causing trouble in the last months!
-It didn’t cause that much trouble, don’t overdo it, WD.
-What! First, the house was invaded by fleas due to him. We even had to throw out my bed because of it. What we experienced during that 15 days was horrible! Then you had him trained because he was an uneducated brat! You paid money to trainer, and you spent my dog food money. Then you said he only has 1/4 Husky gene but this has totally Husky acting. The brat is only 4.5 months old, but he is constantly grumbling, just like the Huskies, don’t you realize! He licks the walls, and finds a place to dig in every park, digging greedily as if he’d come out of Venezuela if you let him. And a complete cannibal eats everything, even though it hasn’t got full teeth yet. A complete mess!
-But Zed talks well about you, WD.
-Hmmm, really? Like what did he say?
-He said that WD may be a boomer but funny.
-THAT BRAT! Are these good words about me? if I get a hold of him! Hey Zed where are you!
Anyway, my dear earthling friends, as WD tries to find Zed, let’s add our traditional wishes to this New Year’s post. WD and I wish to all you healthy (as mind and body), peaceful and happy new year with your loved ones!
By the way, after midnight I will make a toast for Dave. Because 1 January is his birthday! I know the ones who knew and valued him, even if there is no opportunity to toast to him, will commemorate him in their own way. Happy birthday my beloved friend from now; you have never been forgotten and you will never be forgotten!
My earthling friends seven years have passed. Here we are again. I have been more busy lately, because there is a new family member anymore. And I couldn’t even read your blog posts for the last 10 days, for this reason. I’ll probably need another 1 month to get everything back to balance, and I will miss to read your posts in this period. As for the new member of the family, he is a 2 month old stray dog.:) I have brought him from another city. I don’t know how they will deal with WD yet. I hope he lives with us and gets used to us. Because his parents are mixed breeds, he actually carries four different racial genes. One of his eyes is blue and the other is brown. This is because his father is half Husky. Although WD doesn’t like Huskies, I know they’ll get along well.
-Cut the crap Migo! I have never liked Huskies, and never will do! -But he is 1/4 Husky you know. -I do not care 1/4 Husky genes, even if he had been 1/4000, I would not have liked! Do you think I buy this! -WD, if we had not got him, he was going to live on the streets you know winter is coming, in the cold days, he was going to live on cold streets hungrily. -I do not care, I had lived on streets 8 months long after I was born. I did all my struggle alone, and he would too! Take it and drop it where you took it!
-He got used to us for 10 days, how can I take him back, look how he is sleeping now. -It’s not out of habit, you realized that he’s sleeping as Bob Marley songs play, you’re constantly playing Bob Marley to make him sleep. Even on our blog’s anniversary, you put a song like this ugly puppy liked!
-His name is not ugly puppy, I named him Zed, you know. -Yes, what a stupid name! -Zed, because he is Z Generation dog.
-You do realize how generation Z is, right, Migo? To them, everyone else except them is a boomer. Who knows with what kind of nonsenses it will give us a headache!
-You may be right, but there is nothing I can do for now. … -Hey, what are you doing, Migo! -I am putting his photo in here! -But, why! -Because he is Generation Z, probably, he will want later to do. -Da*n! I knew it, from now, it has already begun to seize you, with its as yet unformed desires! -Don’t add his photo, I said don’t add, Migo!
-I did it already, sorry WD. -I hate you Migo, my beloved readers and friends will understand me more than you in this special day. -Happy unniversary to you too WD. 😉
My dear earthling friends, you know I have never shared WD photos or visuals here, because I wanted everyone to imagine him, as they want. But I guess, in the future I will add Zed visuals here in some our posts, after all as I have said to WD that Zed is a member of Generation Z.:)
Let’s write our traditional anniversary wish! 🙂
Happy 7th anniversary with you all, our Earthling friends!
I knew I would post with this title one day! But I did not know which day will be. This song made me breathe today. Generation Z doesn’t know much them(no offense gen Z;) but they are Beethoven of this time for me. 🙂
And I am glad they are on the planet earth, glad they released this song today. I needed this, I know!
Thank you so much, you great Earthling musicians, Iron Maiden!
“The writing on the wall” by Iron Maiden
Written by Adrian Smith / Bruce Dickinson
Across a painted desert lies a train of vagabonds All that’s left of what we were it’s what we have become Once our empires glorious but now the empire’s gone The dead gave us the time to live and now our time is done
Now we are victorious we’ve become our slaves A land of hope and glory building graveyards for the brave
Have you seen the writing on the wall Have you seen that writing Can you see the riders on the storm Can you see them riding ~ can you see them riding
Holding on to jury is that all we ever know Ignorance our judge and jury all we’ve got to show From Hollywood to Babylon ~ holy war to kingdom come On a trail of dust and ashes ~ when the burning sky is done A tide of change is coming and that is what you fear The earthquake is a coming but you don’t want to hear You’re just too blind to see
Have you seen the writing on the wall Have you seen that writing Can you see the riders on the storm Can you see them riding Can you see them riding. . . Riding next to you
Edit comes after 1.5 days: I’ve listened to the song at least 15 times so far. My impressions:
-At first, it starts with southern rock air, although the classic Iron Maiden tone is immediately felt, the main emphasis is reaching a point with Adrian Smith solo and the chorus you can call this is Iron Maiden.
-When the song is listened to on youtube, Bruce’s voice is muffled as if embedded in instruments. Quality is not good. Much better if it is listened on Spotify.
-There are many political sub-themes and references with Eddie in the clip. There are also references to their previous album songs in at least 3 places. Although it has an epic and medieval atmosphere, while describing an apocalyptic world, it actually tells how important actors of this era brought humanity to this Mad Max like end.
-While defining the China, America and England trio, the question may come up in the clip why there is no Russia among the great powers with the images. However, with the song Mother Russia, I think Iron Maiden expressed its stance and opinion about Russia years ago. I think it is normal that Russia is not in the clip, because next to this trio, Russia seems like an angel.
-My preference is always the faster Iron Maiden rhythm. For this reason, I liked to listen to the song at 1.25 speed. Even though it wasn’t a Run to the Hills, it had a similar feel to it. 😉
-Song length is good. It could have been even longer and I think it would have been much better. The longer Iron Maiden songs are for me is the more satisfying; because they’re like a meal or feast I never want to end. 🙂
For the new year, we greet you, our earthling friends with another Iron Maiden song traditionally.:)
2020 was a very bad year, right? Everyone cursed the year. It was just a year. A string of numbers. 2020 has been convicted by humanity, that has constantly pointed to someone else or a thing as criminal and has cleared himself of everything for centuries. 2020 will be eternally guilty in human history. Because humanity is not guilty at all! The people who oppress and mock those who say the rottenness of this order, and who support the capitalists, imperialists and who exploit religion of all kinds, are not guilty! Guilty is 2020! The judge has already broken the nib of his pen!
My dear friends, this song was inspired by the R101 Airship, which fell in 1930. An epic song with Bruce Dickenson lyrics and Steve Harris music. For me, why this song of 2021? Because R101 accident was an important accident in terms of aviation history. And in this prepared file, pre and post accident reports can be found. With R101, which was the pride of the United Kingdom, wanted to reach its colonies -like India- with the shortest way at that time. And this Airship, which was 3 times the size of a Boing 727, was used. However, there were so many technical errors and many elephants in the corner in the background of the crash. Following came to my mind when I’ve read all this: “What great greed!”
That is what 2021 means for me. In my view it will be a year in which greed will peak. The bosses will be more greedy, the middle class, which has been rolled over last year, will feel as if it is breathing down; because the greed of the global capitalists has no limits. Things are easier when there are a lot of idiots already supporting them!
And what I want for 2021: I do not want the oppressed to raise their heads just to seek their rights! I wish them to be greedy! I want them to unsheathe and reveal all their feelings, thoughts, desires! Because simply saying “I am claiming my rights” has become something that the capitalists never considered. I wish the working class around the world to be greedy! Because something with the same intensity as the greed of capitalists must appear!
There should no longer be a humanity that you would feel horrified and ashamed of when you look behind you! Humanity should not be a toy in the hands of a handful of rich people! I want to see this flare from 2021! This is my wish and hope for a new year!
-I will be greedy too.
-About what WD?
-You know about my meals, my cookies, and the other stuff like more going outside and more joy with lady dogs?
-We should bargain on that.
-What bargain you alien! Oh come on! I had thought after surgery you changed. But nothing changed, I see. No bargain. I am an independent dog. I will do whatever I want! This is my own right! And…
-I forgot to buy beer, I think we should go out.
-Beer, yeas! Lets go Migo!
Migo did not say, but I will say. Happy new year to all my dear beloved friends! And I think he was going to say similar wish but he lost himself to much this planet issues and did not say. Let’s be happy in every moment we caught, while being greedy.;)
Last year, wow, what a year, it was! It is still not over, it will not be over yet easily. We are in the interim of a new era, my dear earthling friend NFR. It is painful. Of course, this painful situation is only for ordinary people, the bosses are in very good mood, and they even made incredible profits in this period.
This year has been a toxic year. The pollution on the planet seemed to fade at a time, but then it went back to its bad old days in short time. However, the toxicity I’m talking about is a brain toxicity. Humans act like they’re crazy. Logic is in the background. It used to be like that but now more so. And almost everyone lives their days behind a mask. Except for politicians. Since they always wear natural masks, they don’t see it necessary to wear a second mask anyway.
There was something I’ve wanted to do very, very much in this year, but I couldn’t. Maybe later.
Of course, there were other things I wanted to do, but things I couldn’t do.
For example, 14 years old boy who had to go to work instead go to school at his age, because of the ones who closed the schools under the name of quarantine, also because of this system; I’d like to support him holding by the arm of that boy who fell out of exhaustion and hunger on his way home from work and then died in the hospital. I’d like to say him “Hang on, these days will pass.”
For example, when a family, three siblings committed suicide together, because of financial difficulties, I thought I wish I had known them. I don’t know what I could do, but maybe even getting to know WD would have given them a life energy. Still I don’t know.
Maybe I would shown them that comment you wrote years ago, maybe they would give up on their decision, when they have read it; I don’t know.
I have never forgot your words, my dear friend… When I was most angry, or when I was sad, I never forgot. I tried to value it in my own way. You have contributed a lot to me as a friend, even if in a short time compared to human life.
Or, for example, when a good friend of mine was encircled by his government because of he tried to tell the truth by saying “No, that’s wrong”, when they blocked even his communication channels which he could breathe, I’ve wanted to reach out to him and pull him out of that country, – as if I have a giant hand which raises on the sky- but I couldn’t.
Yes I am an extarterrestrial, but you know I never had super powers like WD always wants. 🙂
Anyway, my dear friend, everything is so toxic.
We simply watch how deep this toxicity goes. Maybe when it hits bottom…
Walk on, come at the face of opportunist, mischief, traitor,
Spit at their faces.
Resist with a book,
hang on with work,
with nail, with teeth,
with hope, with love, with dream…
Like the poet said, we on this lonely planet, we resist and hang on with all against the brutal capitalists!
And NFR, thank you again for adding value to my life with your existence on this planet.
Sleep under the lights my dear friend, rest in well…
ps: What NFR said was about life in one of my old posts. I didn’t add it here as a link, because if I did, it was going to seem that I directed you to rate that post. They were the promising words about life.
In fact, it feels strange to not post many posts for months and then celebrate today. But somehow today is important to me in two respects.
I explained what happened in the post I published 6 days ago how we got through the last 9 months with WD. Therefore, I will not give detail in here again. More importantly, there are many posts that I have started to prepare and have remained unfinished during this time. Some were incomplete, some were not liked by me and seemed to not worth for publishing, and all were not published anyway due to timelessness and circumstances. Hopefully, we’ll be able to publish these and new ones in the seventh year of our blogging. So, we’ll now focus on the matches going forward. 😉
In addition, we want to make sharings which very enjoyable and full of rhythm like the upper video, such as Tom Morello, Scott Ian, Nuno Bettencourt and others did. 🙂
And let’s write our traditional anniversary wish:
Happy 6th anniversary with you all, our Earthling friends! 🙂
We say good bye to 2019 and say hi to 2020 with another Iron Maiden song, Blood Brothers; as you know, our traditional new year song is from Iron Maiden always; Up to Irons! 😉
Here it’s lyrics:
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 me
Just 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
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 burnt
We’re blood brothers
We’re blood brothers
There are times 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
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
And yes, I think all we are blood brothers. 2019 is already telling us not to be too hopeful for 2020. From the beginning, this century did not promise much. But perhaps, like the elderls say, “the darkest hour of the night is just before the dawn.” I guess that depends on the intensity of the darkness. So we don’t know how dark it is right now. Lets hope peace on very this day for the new generations of planet earth! They all need this!
While we wait 2020, my all earthling friends, WD and I wish to all you healthy (as mind and body:)), peaceful and happy new year with your loved ones!
It’s been 5 years from the day when we started blogging my earthling friends. Here we are again with our traditional anniversary post. But today, with a different, I am giving the keyboard to WD right now. 🙂
Finally Migo! So my dear, beloved readers, my all friends! You know this alien Migo never gave me the opportunity for my fame! And he has always interrupted the relation between you and me! My all dreams has gone! I waited and waited soooo long. Okay sometimes I have written some but it was not enough, I always knew that you wanted to talk with me, not with him! The most handsome, intelligence and brave dog; who doesn’t want to talk with me! Even myself sometimes I cannot understand how I am so much full earthling dog, even envy myself. I hope that lady dog who stepped my foot yesterday, is reading this right now. If you are reading this my darling, I am here, find me. 😉
And all my beloved readers and friends, if right now Migo would have written this anniversary post, probably he was going to mention his sinusitis or the other problems. If you don’t belive me you can check the other anniversary posts before! Almost all same! How boring he is! Luckly this year we have the opportunity finally!
-This year luckly I am not sick or have any sinus problem WD.
-What! Where did you come from! I will not give you keyboard back Migo, buzz off!
-Okay don’t give me, but this should be anniversary post, not your complaning and boasting post.
-I am just telling truths, not more not less.
-I am sure you do, but look WD that tabby cat is again out there.
WD ran away, my earthling friends; as you can guess. 😎
Happy 5th anniversary with you all, my Earthling friends!
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.
-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!
