Not really sure what they are protesting.... I get that some of it is about greed .... I know some of it is about how Corporations run this country... I know how some of it is about the stock market.... Maybe different people are there for different reasons like they don't have a job or where they worked it got shipped away.... I also don't know if there are any goals other then just to protest... Is there something they want.... Does everyone want the same thing.... In any event it sure could get interesting or it might not even make the news and may stay at four people? Guess we shall see....... I will say this though it is a cool idea.... Maybe this is all really just a test to see if it works so that if it does the next level will be with torchs and pitch forks and yelling and screaming?

Metallica Bugs Bunny?
I like Metallica Because of Bugs Bunny!
Now why does anyone like any band? Well there are really a bunch of factors:
- Some how you have to hear the bands music... how does that happen is it a friend...
--Well friends do cause you to like and dislike stuff you wouldn't with out them.. Some times you listen to a song and kinda vibe off each other...
- Yes there is still this thing called the radio... Now in this form you can here a band but not know all the songs just the ones that they play
- Don't know to much about how listening to a certain band on line really goes down I know some bands have gotten found that way or on Youtube and I put this in kinda the CD way that you can here a bunch of a bands music.....
- Live is the best way though or it can be... Granted bands sound different live and when a band opens and you expect nothing (hey all bands opened at one time pretty much) and they are great.... Wow you get blown away.. Some bands have a great CD but are crappy live and some bands are so much fun live a CD would never do them Justice.... Speaking of that one thing that Kept me a fan of Mettalica was when I saw them Live (not sure where the 1st time was guessing the AUD) they sounded a lot like how they did on Tape (yes a copy of a copy sometimes).....
-There is more then just the music though...
Mettalica again is a good example of this.... I hated the entire napster thing and if I wasn't such a big fan they would have got left in the dust.. I like Limp Bizkit but Durst is a Dick and that is why many people won't listen to his music.... So I'm saying who the band is and how they promote them selves. This is also about whom the band seems to be... Some of this is also shown on the live shows.. Take Sum 41 decent band... They do this thing where they have their Alter Egos "Pain for Pleasure" come out... Yes same guys and they cover metal and are great wish they came out with an album.... What I also like is that on stage they get cheered and say stuff like "Hey we are just a shitty Canadian Punk Band" They Might say pop punk been years but it still means the same thing it is so great they admit that.....
-What Type of music it is....
Now of course their will be some acts that one likes that are out of there Genre... But as good as Ice Cube might be if you can't get into rap you won't like him.... There are people who only listen To metal with the growling or people who only listen to country or what ever and that is fine that isn't me... People see the long hair so they might think Metal head but that isn't true yeah some metal I like but try to find metal isn't so easy... Now what is odd though is that think back some ways that their was a Time "The Hair Bands" where a part of Metal.... Motley Crue I get but Poison?
I think that really every band has a certain sound... Yes some bands do sound like other bands and to be honest unless they have some of the same members or same singer that isn't good for either band...
Take Cold Play I love how they sound. Now what type of music are they I have no idea but I'm sure of that Genre they are the only band I like. Never seen them live but they are amazing... Wait I take that back a bit is Muze the same type cause they are great as well.....
Now often times you hear people say "All there songs sound the same".. Now I won't lie for a few bands a song starts you know the band but go is this that song or this song and until they sing you don't know the song... But most bands this isn't true.... But with most bands there is this kinda sound (even if just the lead singer) that kinda comes from that band... This is tough to explain you would kinda have to hear it but if you like a band you know what I mean (assuming anyone reads this).....
Ok Back to Metallica
-Did someone introduce me to them sure and is that a factor sure but If I didn't like it I would have stopped listening...
-After I got into them I found out Bay Area oh yeah and that dude in Megadeth they kicked out... Awesome wait this guy isn't the 1st base player what.... Oh my they are getting that dude who played with Ozzy he is awesome wonder how he will effect the new stuff....
But at the end of the day it comes down to how they sound... To me every CD (yes I heard them before I knew what the songs where called) is a bit different... Now song meanings I won't touch cause everyone takes what words they hear and give them their own meanings based on their own perspective. I will admit that new one is all over the place and if any other band took the old style and mixed in jam band I think I would think it sucks but they are my favorite band... Some of that load and reload stuff was out there... I don't even know if they do that stuff live any more really? But I also thought it was good...
Now in terms of a blog no one really knows if anyone is reading this or not but if they are (In this case you on TV I just did a moonlighting and broke the 3rd wall) now I still haven't said why Bugs Bunny is why I like Metallica. so here it is.... There have been many great bugs bunny cartoons hey who doesn't love that show... Some of them have great classical music in them... Or at the very least ones that fit the cartoon perfectly.... Anyone who says they don't like Classical music just doesn't know they like it... Now you might not think about that star wars music, or the music in Malcolm X but that very dramatic scene is made so by the Dramatic Classical music... Oh yeah by the way Music is an art so yes Music is Art.... I don't know if that is where I first head classical music but I'm sure when one hears it they go sounds like Bugs or wait is Indy going to make or is that rock going to get him? But I'm saying Bugs is what got me to like the music.... When I first heard Metallica they seemed to be kinda based of Classical music.... I also think this is why when they did the stuff with the Philharmonic it worked so well..... But hey that is just me so.... I also think that sound is why I like some metal but isn't a metal head?

So thanks to the girls who where freaking out at the bus stop over the bee. That shows you how crazy fear is... If you want you can put this into perspective about bullies and that is fine it is kinda a sub post or sub point... Of course that assumes you read the previous one... This is more about fear though and not hate that comes from it so... There is this tiny little bee that will only attack if you bother it.. Once it stings you it dies. It just like dogs can smell the fear.. Ok maybe not the fear but the chemical your body produces hence why bees bother you and dogs Bark at yeah.. It is real easy to say you shouldn't fear these things you do eggs them on... (I think some people can smell it or fear it)... That is why in a hood that is sketchy the best thing to do is not to hide not to watch shadows not be jumpy to know anyone fucks with you it is a chop to the throat then back elbow to the head and if he is with buddies they won't fuck with you after that... But no one can do that with bees, Bullies, or Dogs really or at least not all of them... I'm not saying that with Bullies we cause it to happen. But being fearless would cut down on a lot of it.... Again not saying that can happen... I know I don't trust dogs they are there to protect their area and if you are in you are a threat to them... People think they are walking the dog but the dog really is walking them... That pit bull decides to run when it really walks you I'm done. So I guess what I'm getting at is some fear is rational and some is non rational like that tiny bee....
Are there other factors that run the world sure but I think fear is the biggest and we don't even know it... This is so true of us men. Now fear isn't only about bad things but about good things and change as well..... Oh I'm not a shrink so if you take my advice and something goes wrong don't sue me and since this is out there Star Wars people don't do it either.... So I guess a bunch of examples since I don't think I have a real point just kinda showing some things off....
Oh that gorgeous girl at the coffee shop or on a bus or where ever. We want to approach but fear kicks in.. Now I include worry in fear as well because worrying about what can happen is part of fear even if it is a good thing... What if she rejects in front of everyone... What if she says she will call me then breaks my heart... What if her ex is the jealous type... Now I'm not saying that we think of all this stuff at once but often time something stops us like having our food taken or stepping on someone on a moving bus or having our favorite coffee place be weird....
Not attacking Bush "W'!" here. But he and not only him have used fear to pass his agenda in the past... You know little things like spying on citizens and the Patriot (Go Bills..HA oh wait that is the Patriots but when you leave that team do you hate your country cause your an expat ha!) Act. Gotta give him credit for that...
Maybe there is some country with out an Army ... Everyone needs an army what if we are attacked... Now that is fear at its highest form... You know what if no one had an army it wouldn't be a fear... This fear is used in most every war.. We have to fight them over there so they don't come over hear...
Locally the food truck battle is driven by fear... There are fads in food. Don't believe me look what happened to Krisppy Kreme.... Um who's that they are all closed now.. When they opened they had 40 minute drive through waits... So part of the fear is this new thing will be a fad and won't last and then in that fad time other places will close... I would call that rational fear... Or maybe since Paladino is all fired up that part of it is irrational not sure you decide (if anyone is reading this)?
Job wise where to start... So many people wake up and go why am I going to this place I hate.. All the fears from quitting... Like not being able to find a job, not having money, not being able to do what you like to do for fun, losing the family cause of no job... But that isn't the only fear for some. The fear of liking it.
Fear isn't only about bad things that happen it is also about good things that happen.. I have a dual fear of getting a tattoo ... First of all there are a bunch of fears of needles, if it is a pain I can't deal with, what if I get the new guy who isn't good yet or worst yet forgets to change needles... But there is also a positive fear and that is what If I like it... I like tattoos but don't want to look like the guy with them on his neck and there entire body is covered with them... Now a chick it is different cause women with them and guys look different... I myself like when there is a Tattoo you can tell what the entire thing is not like a sleeve where you can kinda see what things are but hey that is just me....
New things where you don't know what to expect are can freak people out... I know I'm a bit stressed out over work.. Can't say much but Boss was talking to one of the new people... There is a part of me that isn't worried and could care less about what they are talking about.... But there is another part that has a feeling there could be drama and then more people will have to talk and then I might have to say stuff that I don't want to say.... Is the talk about the new guy or about others? The guy is new does he know what he is talking about... The not knowing is a bit stressful .... The fear is natural though....
But fear is so complex... Some people like to face their fears like if you don't like heights climb to the roof (me) and just stay away from the edge.... Or in some peoples case it might be jumping off a bridge or high dive or something....
Fear of good things causes people to do things or not do things as well... There is something you see or you wan't but you don't think you deserve it so you are afraid of Success... Or maybe you think you can't handle that.. Again I think this might be true of me... I don't like talking about work but here it goes again.. I'm not a boss so I can't tell people what to do.. I can tell them what I would do, or what they could do, or what they should do, or even say well here is what is going on here are some ways you could do this.. But I'm not a boss so I can't tell the person what to do... I don't want to be a boss there are things that a boss does that I know aren't for me and that I don't want to do... Often times when you are a step back it is a better spot to see and say well you could do this. But when you are in it and you are the one who has to make that decision and live by what goes down it is different... Or maybe it is just fear of some kind not sure.....
I guess if someone wants a point it is that if we know it or not Fear really drives most of what we do and don't do... Again though This is not only about fear of bad things but of good things as well... If one can use fear as a way to drive for positivism then that is great but I would say that isn't very often... I do think that Fear does lead to hate.. But I wouldn't know really how to write about that... The other problem is just cause you hate someone or something doesn't mean fear caused it... Just wish I could come up with some example of how fear of Success causes people to do things......

"You're going to Hell" "fuck You!"
So there has been a lot of stuff in the news and it is national about this local kid who killed him self cause of Bullying and now national people jump on board....
To me this isn't about his sexuality... Kids pick on kids about any thing and everything.. If you are different you will get picked on in some form... Now when I was a kid yes this did go on I'm sure... But most of it was through picking on someone in a good way not cause you hate what they are and that type makes people stronger. It is a guy thing of busting balls. Like "shut Up" oh "Blow Me" and on and on till someone doesn't have a comeback... This is why I don't think any new laws should be passed... Can't have people who are having a good time with each other get in trouble for it....
I know schools say they take this seriously but I don't really buy it... I think it is more we are covering out ass... But maybe I'm wrong... Again here is a place where we don't need new laws there are ones on the books that work .... But are teachers and people really going to follow them?
What I don't get is why after the school shootings why didn't that spawn these changes... Those kids get bullied and put out on there own. Then they go and shoot up a school... Yes it is part of a Micheal Moore movie and yes you should see the Marilyn Manson part of the movie it is great... But that should have started everything....
I don't think this will ever end:
-When someone dies it gives the bullies just what they want someone they don't approve of is dead oh well one less that is what they get for being that way...
-When you tell everyone this is how being this way hurts others yes it tells kids not to be like that.... But what it also does it reminds people who don't care if someone gets hurt to do this..... If they tell the entire school how to deal with this then the bullies know what they have to counter .......
-But The big reason why I don't think it will stop is a lot of the bulling is because the bully sees the other person as less of a person because of what they are... It could be that they are gay or act gay or look like a chick or what ever... Many times this is taught at home or at church... So it is a moral thing... Since they are being moral it is ok to do this....
Not all bullying is because of moral things... The way a bully works most of the time is with fear. Now the fear of what will happen is stronger most times then what will really happen. But this is true of most fear... The fear of rejection or getting the shit beaten out of you and get your face shoved in the mud is worse then the beating its self... Yes it will hurt but it will then end and you won't be tormented every minute of the day.... But it is easy to say you just have to tell someone to go fuck them selves and take what may happen...... Or of course to punch them as hard as you can... It isn't that easy as anyone who has ever been afraid of anything could tell you.....
I know there is more i wanted to say but kinda lost it somewhere as all ways this isn't prof read...

Food Trucks redux
-I think they are a great idea
-What got me so upset to begin with is that people where saying here are places that are concerned with their business and so they are pushing for laws that will protect and since they are doing that we won't eat there anymore....
-My main concern was that with them being mobile that a system needs to be in place where if there is a problem you call someone and they come out right a way and make a decision that is binding.. Say I get food poisoning or they have a guy with a big sign in front of my place stealing my customers... then someone comes out or maybe a few people they make a decision as what is to be done on the spot...
-Certain Festivals and places you need a permit for I think Delaware park is one of them... Food trucks should be able to get a permit for those places....
-Police shouldn't be pulling over trucks! unless they do something wrong like run a red light...
-What I thought should have happened was bar owners and street vendors and Pine Hill Coffee trucks, and James the Ice Cream dude and everyone who sells food or drinks should all have a big meeting with law makers and work out what is fair....Cause if I own a Juice stand or what ever is it fair that a truck can drive around and sell juice to people who are running not really......
Not sure what is going on with the great food truck race but hope Lloyds wins....
