I guess I've already won that.
No mom is worth the aggravation,
it's ancient Gotham babe,
been there done that.
Who'd I think I'm savin'?
She' just gonna hand me over,
beat down with a crowbar,
blown up with the entire buildin',
Bat ain't gonna show up,
they dont even throw the clown in Arkham,
No chance, no way,
I wont make it , no no.
I flew, I died,
why deny it?
Uh-oh. It's too bloody,
I wont stay in the grave~.(Ohhh oohhh ohh).
From my scars I thought I learned a lesson,
It feels so good when you start out, my head is screamin ''Get a grip dude!"
Unless you're dyin' to get locked up,
I keep on denying,
who I was and how I felt then,
baby I'm still tryin',
hon I blew up the ceilin',
facein' it like a villain,
now I'm gonna own up that I got,(got)got it bad, Ooohhh.
No chance, no way,

Wont give up, or in,

I'm doin' flips,

I'm way off base,

"This is Hix galaxy" said a man standing near the screen. A group of people sitting on chairs behind him, dutifully looked in his direction, trying to see any of this "extraordinary things", as chief scientist of extraterrestrial research center was going to show them.
"I know that it was difficult to push up there with our satellites" the man smiled, though a bit nervously. "But this galaxy must be known once with farest of its elements. Recent data have discovered it."
At this point, he again made the approximation of the monitor, showing the star system located very close to the greatest communities of the stars.

Lights and Perfections, by The Burial.Lights and Perfections, by The Burial.2 years ago in Editorial More Like This
The power of art really is a force to be reckoned with. To have you look at something and be intrigued by it, wanting to know more about it's story. Soon all you're doing is staring at it intently, as if it were a really attractive person.
Maybe I am delving too much into the album art cover of Lights and Perfections by The Burial, but I have to say, it truly is amazing.
The Burial is a progressive death metal band, and this is their sophomore release. Now, I hadn't even heard of this band until I was looking at upcoming releases, and saw this artwork, along with two tracks available for listening pleasure, so of course I had to take a listen.
The album starts of with 'Lights' which is woven with so many grooves and bounces, the urge to not headbang becomes obsolete. This band may suffer from what many 'elitists' consider to be a very incestuous sound with metalcore, due to the songwriting choices, such as bands like The Faceless. With that being said, the catchy riffs and impre

There is no need to introduce you to Cryptopsy if you're into Death Metal. They released pivotal albums in the 90's, and due to major line up changes throughout the bands career, fans have been on the fence with albums past 1996's None So Vile, and it's all due to one man; Lord Worm. His vocals were monstrous, ugly, and raw, but all in the good way. Back in the 90's, all death metal bands wanted to just sound evil, and play fast. There was no producers to be picked for that clean nor clear sound. Death Metal was from the bowels of hell and beyond.
Fast forward to 2007, and Worm leaves yet again for a job as an English teacher, making the band recruit a new vocalist, which finally landed on a young Matt McGachy, and so in 2008, The Unspoken King came out.
I really don't need to get a point across on how horrendous that album was. Let's just say it was panned by nearly every fan that loved the band, and people who've never heard of the album. They went from death metal to d

Starting at the top of that bottle
Makes his halfway mark past a horrible night
Now he's found himself at the bottom of a bad situation

'No clue, but there's no stopping him until the poison hits.'
Sitting on a curb
You tell yourself you could live like a fish
Only if the water kept you warm as it did in that glass.
They refuse to help due to the scent of the devil's water.
Until you're able to hold your head up, you're lost in translation.

Why my soul
Put my anguish to rest
To be bound and bent by the defining acts committed
To be avoided, simply because of appearances
I am not such things
Simply because I find the world hysterical
Pain and suffering entertaining
Sickness a way to weed out the weak
How I wish to be in their shoes
To see the world as a 'right' person
To laugh when there is nothing to laugh about
To find pain sorrowful
Sickness another term for satisfying the heart’s desire
And finally screams petrifying
I hear them every day
From Martha, the woman tapping ever so maliciously on the iron bars
From Jared, the twitchy man hiding in the left corner
Always the left
And Isaac, the one who is sharing my mind right now.
I should probably stop talking to you Isaac, or I'll start screaming too.

Would you believe me,
if I told you I was dying?
Would you stop trying?
Please, look me in the eyes
and tell me all those well-known lies
about trust, about love
and everything I'm yet sick of.
And when you turn around full of shame,
again I'm the one to blame,
for my being, most of all,
will be the reason for my fall.

Greedy hands bare all my secrets.
Salt covers my tongue, skin tasting like sin.
My lust for you,my weakness.
Turn me on while I turn on you.
Feral noises escaping.
Stretch the limits,placate the needs.
Whisper your sweet nothings.
Just remember my heart is not for the taking.

What makes you want to groove? Is it the rhythm of a track? The way the bass, drum, and other instrumentation come together that just gets you praise evolution for being able to snap your fingers, move your hips, or any other involuntary movement when stimulated by a good tune?
John Talabot is a music producer out of Barcelona, making this his debut album under the name, although this not being his first indenture into the music scene. He spent his time as a DJ in the 2000's making dance tunes, eventually shifting his musical capabilities into another sound as the scene began to die out years later locally.
Enter IN, his first output and follow up to the Families EP that came out last year, in which I had forgot to include into my lists last year, due to not giving the EP enough spins to truly enjoy it. Now it's the beginning of the year, and this is no time for excuse. This album is comprised of 52 minutes of slow tempos, mixed into his lush, and warm tr

is all that we can ask of them
they treat mankind the best they can
in hopes we let them live again
The things we gain are what they lack
the time has come to give it back
but cutter's ax, of course it hacks
into the willow's stable back
His trunk will lay, his trunk will stay
until his kind see brighter days
the skies above him turn to gray
until one thoughtful person say:
"Say - does the cutter realize
that when you cut a tree - it dies?
you leave no time to say goodbyes
only to fall from higher skies..."
Those people of the gentle night
persuade the ones of narrow sight
the ones who think in black and white -
who say to end him is alright...
Since cutter's blade has had him slayed
he lies in grasses colored jade
and ev'ry single living blade
shall comfort him in sun and shade
As for the small, unnoticed seeds
they too have thoughts, and wants, and needs
and thoughtful passersby's new creed
has helped us hear their tiny plea

That is what my mind used to say.
But everything can change in one day,
And its effects can forever stay.
How did I even fall in love?
Was I punished by the God above?
No one has told me the complete truth,
But I just know that I am wasting my youth.
She is never going to see me from far away,
Even if she does, she is going to turn away.
She will laugh if she reads my real name,
I am surrounded by darkness, she is surrounded by fame.
To my dreams I said goodbye from the first time,
But they refuse to leave; they say it is a crime.
Alas, I get farther from every strike of the clock,
Because in this land I am under lock!
Stephonika's Movie Review: MAN OF STEELStephonika's Movie Review: "MAN OF STEEL" - (PRE-SCREENING)Stephonika's Movie Review: MAN OF STEEL10 months ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Rated: PG-13, for intense action and fantasy violence throughout
Never in my career would I have thought that I would find a movie worthy of a five-star rating, and never did I think the first film to garner that honour would be a Superman film because I've never bought much into this hero. In many films Kal-El has been too superhuman-ed and too impervious to allow for the average person to buy into his plight. His challenges have always been high above what any of us could do, but this film approaches the character in a way that humanizes him. He is still superhuman, but he has the heart of one of us in a way that is intangible for words and in a way becomes more human than the rest of the world.
In the days where audiences allow themselves to accept spectacle over substance, this film delivers what we have been needing since the super-energized computer generated

Not unless I arrange the blankets
Somehow I manage to mimic
The shape of her body
But I can't recreate
Or the way her chest
Moved softly against my back
With every measured
Most nights, I wake up
And she's not here
Maybe she got up
To get a drink of water
And I don't even know
How long she's been gone
But somehow I know
That she's never
Going to come back to bed
And if I would just reach over
And touch her side of the bed
I would know it was cold
But I'm afraid
I don't want to know she's gone
I don't want to know I can't have her back
And I'll fall asleep again
But most mornings,
I'll wake up thinking
She's still here
And I'll lie there
For just a moment
Wondering where she's gone
And then I begin to wonder
How long I've been alone
