STREET LIFE

STRANDED."ROXY MUSIC"


Wish everybody would leave me alone -yeah
They're always calling on my telephone
When I pick it up there's no one there
So I walk outside just to take the air
Come on with me cruising down the street
Who knows what you'll see, who you might meet
This brave new world's not like yesterday -
It can take you higher than the milky way
Now I'm blinded I can't really see - yeah
No more bright lights confusing me - no
Don't ask me why I'm feeling blue
'Cause loving you is all I can do
Hey good-looking boys - gather around
The sidewalk papers gutter-press you down
All those lies can be so unkind,
They can make you feel like you're losing your mind
Street Life
Street Life
Street Life
What a Life
Back to nature boys - Vasser girls too
Watch what you say, or think, or do
Continental-style strasse girls might
But you know exactly if it´s wrong or right
Education is an important key - yes
But the good life's never won by degrees - no
Pointless passing through Harvard or Yale
Only window shopping - it's strictly no sale
Week end starts Friday soon after eight
Your jet black magic helps you celebrate
You may be stranded if you stick around
- And that's really something...

*JESUS AND MARY CHAIN


Like Velvet Underground, The, their most obvious influence, the chart success of the Jesus and Mary Chain was virtually non-existent, but their artistic impact was incalculable; quite simply, the British group made the world safe for white noise, orchestrating a sound dense in squalling feedback which served as an inspiration to everyone from My Bloody Valentine to Dinosaur Jr.. Though the supporting players drifted in and out of focus, the heart of the Mary Chain remained vocalists and guitarists William Reid and Jim Reid, Scottish-born brothers heavily influenced not only by underground legends like the Velvets and Stooges, The but also by the sonic grandeur and pop savvy of Phil Spector and Brian Wilson. In the Jesus and Mary Chain, which the Reids formed outside of Glasgow in 1984 with bassist Douglas Hart and drummer Murray Dalglish (quickly replaced by Bobby Gillespie), these two polarized aesthetics converged; equal parts bubblegum and formless guitar distortion, their sound both celebrated pop conventions and thoroughly subverted them.


HAVE A NICE DAY.

THE TOP OF THIS PICTURE WAS THE FONT AND SLOGAN WE USED FOR BENNY'S FIRST TATTOO ON HIS LEFT ARM THAT WAS DONE IN WHITE. THE "MOTHER ON HIS WRIST WAS DONE A FEW MONTHS LATER... HE WAS A REALLY GOOD FRIEND TO ME AND IT IS A LOSS TO ALL WHO KNEW HIM WHEN HE PASSED AWAY. THANKS FOR ALL THE GOOD TIMES LITTLE MAN...

Forcing yourself to write is not really relevant

The pace at which your hand travels is uncontrollably generous

and blissfully pain full

as you remind yourself about the contradictions you live in

at least right now its providing a certain gap

to produce a incompetent relief in between breathing spaces

left by the injustice of my frail mind...” - Rick De la ray

Benny, a huge gap has been left in our society of lunatics that chose to question where others accept. a persons life gets measured by the good memories that you leave in other peoples minds when you are gone. your social adventures allowed you access to the vaults of many hearts and thoughts. there is no doubt about the fact that you have always been a example to many, for even at your young age, have you lived a lot more than most. I for one am not going to be sad becuase there is no reason to be sad about the memories that you have left behind. can i get three cheers to a fellow connoisseur of dodgy bars and dirty pool tables ! - love stefan st(e)ak Naude

Ed Young South African Art 2008
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE FAN OF THE BEASTIE BOYS, AND FOR SOME REASON A SAMPLE ON THE LAST SONG OF THEIR FIRST ALBUM "LICENCE TO ILL" ALWAYS LATCHED TO MY HEAD... THE SAMPLE WAS AN OLD SCHOOL RECORDING OF A GUY SINGING "THE FAMOUS MR ED..." SO I FINALLY WENT TO SEARCH FOR IT AND THIS IS WHAT I FIND. AND IT KIND OF MAKES SENSE...

BEING FROM SOUTH AFRICA I HAD NO CLUE WHAT TO EXPECT AND THEIR SAMPLING ART PRODUCED QUIET A FEW AMAZING IMAGES

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

(Redirected from Mr Ed)

Mister Ed was an American television situation comedy that first aired as a syndicated program on January 5, 1961 to July 2, 1961 and then on CBS from October 1, 1961 to February 6, 1966. Mister Ed was the first series ever to debut as a midseason replacement, occurring before the premiere of Batman, five years later.

The stars of the show are Mister Ed, an intelligent talking palomino American Saddlebredgelding Bamboo Harvester and voiced by Allan Lane), and his owner, architect Wilbur Post (portrayed by Alan Young). Much of the program's humor stemmed from the fact Mister Ed would speak only to Wilbur. According to the show's producer, Arthur Lubin, Young was chosen because "he seemed like a guy a horse would talk to." Lubin, a friend of Mae West, scored a coup by persuading the screen icon to guest star in one episode.








THEME SONG AND URBAN LEGEND

The theme song was written by the songwriting team of Jay Livingston and Ray Evans and sung, for the show, by Livingston. According to an urban legend when the theme song for Mister Ed was played backwards the words "SOMEONE SUNG THE SONG FOR SATAN" and THE SOURCE IS THE DEVIL" are clearly heard. These phrases are heard by some listeners due to the phenomenon called phonetic reversal.[1]


DEATH

By the time Mister Ed reached the age of 19 he was suffering from a broken leg and A VARIETY OF HEALTH PROBLEMS, and in 1970 he was quietly put to death with no publicity. However, in an interview on Los Angeles station KECT's program "Life and Times", Alan Young stated that Mr. Ed died from an inadvertent tranquilizer administered while he was "in retirement" in a stable in Burbank, California.

A horse that died in Oklahoma in 1979 (widely reported to have been Mister Ed, including sardonic comments on Saturday Night Live's faux news segment) was in fact an animal that once posed as Ed for publicity photos used by the production company.

The first words Mr. Ed spoke were: "IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I WAS A PONY"
