I am the chairman of the bored

Some days like that..things are not clicking.

Then I listen to Howard then my minds goes floating at the edge of abnormality.

This is where I belong, and where I feel comfortable

Siamese Dreams…

 

I spent 2 years in Siam.

Not what you could think, 2 years with Thai and Lao people, living with them, sharing spicy life.

When I listen to this song, I jump 2 steps back to these days…

The moving balads of Siriporn Umpaipong, the Issan Diva and these kids of  BodySlam..Vibrant Bangko

Vid. does not call many words to explain.

I tell you, I always feel home when sharing with true people, this in Ethiopia, Thailand or Malaysia, country does not matter, people do!

Siamese dreams ..

Gimme Shelter

Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away

War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away.

As wicked as it seems

I like to remember meeting Keith Richards in Eurostar.
Sitting in first class restaurant, he was there, cross the table.
Fast train for one time too fast. 2 Hours chat.
To say I was a fan and still I am is not correct.
We share with a few others (John Lydon) this essence of rebellion.
Not political, not religious not social, we born different, so fuckin’ different.
We don’t follow rules, ours change everyday. We don’t establish models, we don’t believe in models.
We don’t need consistency because we just are…

Impatience

You guys cannot understand where we are coming from.
A battlefield for freedom with no ideology seeded in northern fogs
You guys just remember a few gimmicks aka ‘No Future”
You guys used our path for your dis-gracious deviations
You maniac zombies did not understand, you cannot..
Our impatience.

Vertigo

You see, my brother, today I stay by Java Sea in Jakarta. I keep moving on but sometimes, turning head back I remember.
I remember Bono, Bono in Ethiopia giving support to children. Gaslight in Sheraton Addis…my Club! We had good moments (with Johnny Walker the Black).
Yes, this life brought me some good things like that, meeting guys by any chance the same guys I was living the music since I was a kid.
Bono, Keith Richard in Eurostar..
As Neil Young sings, “Rock and Roll will never die!” not only music, freedom.

Red Fox

Well, I don’t have that many old friends.
Red Fox remained.
I like this guy, so genuine, so New Yorker, so Jamaican.
You don’t understand “patois”? Normal it became a code language!
Just feel the energy, the sincerity of Red Fox Art.
Dancehall? May be… much more than that.

Half empty, half full…

Yes, it’s today time to think about those still close to me, those whose spirit are still my companions.

It is time to feel their inspiration and hand in mind to the “no fear” zone.

It is time to sing a song
