Favourite Songs From The Past
« on: September 02, 2018, 04:05:05 PM »
We all have those songs were used to listen to but have since been stacked in the more obscure parts of our memories -- not forgotten, just buried under multiple layers of our mental archaeological strata, just below our consciousness. Every now and then, something happens that causes the memory to resurface and morph into an earworm, and you're left thinking, 'whoa, I really dug that one up there! How many years has it been since I've listened to that song?'. :notsure:

For me, today that song was Shelter by Greenwheel:


This was a favourite when I was a teenager, back in 2002.
I am what survives if it's slain - Zack Hemsey

My pick pre-dates me by a couple of decades;

In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.

I found my old ass binder full of CDs from my teen years, so I've been reliving all my old musical choices in their questionable and nostalgic glory. This particular song seems apropos, though...

"Come ride with me through the veins of history,
I'll show you how god falls asleep on the job.
And how can we win when fools can be kings?
Don't waste your time or time will waste you."

I have to ask. What's an 'ass binder'?
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

In this context, ass is used as an adjective to say that shizz is from the late 90s-early 2000s, yo. Practically vintage. ;)
