Mind Blowing

Thoughts and other crap on people, life and maybe footie...
My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.

80's Icon of the Month - GNR

for the new year...i wanna start something new. it's my blog so i can do wateva the hell i please...hehe. i call it 80's icon of the month. it's my tribute to the decade of off-beat, crazy and birth of the MTV generation. things covered here will not really be 80's icon material...but they really affected me one way or another. so in a way..it's a tribute to the things i grew up with...be it music, movies, cartoons or even politicians. anything goes here. it's what i love about the 80's and early 90's...before the worldwide domination of hip-hop and .com frenzy. what better way to start this all than giving my tribute to Guns N' Roses...one of my all-time favourite rock bands.
my music influences during my childhood was due to exposure given to me by my older cousins who studied overseas. they would come back during their summer holidays bringing the likes of bon jovi, whitesnake, van halen and other rock bands with make-up. but the one that appealed to me the most was this evil-looking album by guns n roses. it had a cross with skulls on each corner. but inside the album was one of my early exposure to porno. it had a cartoon picture of this robot raping a semi-naked lady with her boobs popping out. i would look in awe...hehehhe...teruk sial cousins aku. appetite for destruction was the name...and destructive in every word.
with colorful names such as axl rose, slash and izzy stradlin in the line-up, GNR was THE band u loved to hate. they would get drunk on planes, break things backstage and walk in and out of courtrooms. bands now are sooooo much nicer. what happened to attitude?? rock stars are born to be bad and GNR showed everyone the way. first time i heard them was on this clint eastwood movie..the last dirty harry movie...tak ingat namanya. it played welcome to the jungle and since then..i heard it play a lot. then there was the jiwang ballad...sweet child o mine...which was massive back then. and then of course..paradise city...i still remember the chorus....take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty.....
they released a couple of albums after Appetite, the Use your illussion 1 & 2 being the last original material from them. of course...the 2 were great albums with great songs but november rain dah naik muak aku dengar kat hitz. buggers...
diorang skang dah break-up and any hope of them reuniting is really far off, even though axl still remains the band with all new band members. aku harap diorang reunite balik and again wreck chaos on the rock scene...and a few good tunes would help as well....
