For those that know and love the surfers as the most brain bending, soul-chewing outfit EVER - you rock.
Give it up!!! You never will!!!! I love and adore this CD just as I love and adore the surfers and always will. I'll continue to support them no matter what choices they make in the studio. They are dangerous and squishy and brilliant technicolor reaching sharply out at you in a musical world full of blank, flat, harmless snoring. Just wait and see. It may take twenty years. People are fairly dense.
Just turn on the radio and listen. Listen in any "trendy" coffee shop. It's the most inert, harmless, lifeless blah stuff. No risk. No daring. Very dour and downbeat and "cool". A lot of posing by the camera-ready lead singer, hair immaculately coiffed. Excuse me while I blow my brains out. Anyway, this album is brilliant and you should buy it immediately.
Don't even think. Just buy. Click and buy. I promise you won't be sorry. I loved the songs on here. The surfers have an amazing way of blending punk, metal, psychadelics, and trance into the most exquisite, beautiful package. I love the eastern feel to some of the songs. Some, in particular "All Day" have a legitimately spiritual feel.
I would say the weak points to the CD "Concubine" just feels too incomplete and "Eindhoven Chicken Masque" which doesn't really feel as much like a surfer song.
Don't buy this as an audio. Buy the book, hell, read it outloud to yourself. But the experience of listening to this was painful. And I only waded through the stories to get to the end because they were King. A few glimmering moments from Tim Curry and King himself barely hold this book above the vomit level.
The essay on little league really didn't fit. If you don't enjoy baseball, just skip it. I thought at some point there would be some kind of "King twist" as so many of his stories have.
I listen to his books on my way to work, and while his story-telling is superb as always, this was just AWFUL subject-matter.
The book itself is quite large, so I don't really understand the purpose of splitting it into separate volumes. Since Nightmares and Dreamscapes is such a large collection, the audiobook is broken into 3 volumes. The first 4 stories, all read by some of mine and many others favorite actors.
My favorites stories from this volume are Rainy Season,mand Dolan's Cadillac. I first listened to these on CD when the book was first released while I was working a job that always was easier done while listening to music or books.
All the narrators inbthis volume bring the listener into the story so well, you almost feel like you're there, or watching it on the big screen. Especially the favorites I mentioned. Smith relays the confusion and later fear of the characters as they hear about then experience The Rainy Season of the little town they are vacationing at for the night. Just as well is Lowe, portraying the school teacher turned vigilante avenging his wife's murder. Then of course, nobody can narrate a Stephen King story better than himself, reading it in the way he imagines his Constant Readers do, in order to feel the full effect and rage of emotion.
I highly recommend getting all three volumes of this excellent, and favorite of mine, collection of short stories. Most of the stories are pretty boring. I also wish only one voice actor would narrate. The worst is the end when King talks about baseball for 2 hours. King has some really great work in his other books but this one was a let down.
Stephen Kings short stories are phenomenal, no if ands or buts about it. However, you aren't getting your money's worth for the expensive price you pay.
Nightmares and Dreamscapes is divided into several audio volumes for whatever reason and I feel like I spent 30 dollars for 10 dollars worth of audiobook. I'd recommend this to someone who has money to waste. Get rid of the volume format and I'd give it 5 stars I'm sure. I usually really like Stephens short stories. They even tend to be my favorites, but these were not that great.

And it always upsets me greatly when I think about past romantic relationships because I've been rejected a lot. I have only dumped one person my whole life and he was probably the nicest guy I ever went out with.
Maybe I just have a taste for arseholes who end up having more first world problems than me. I find this hard to believe though, and of course it's all my fault. I'm not special enough, I'm not good enough, nobody desires me no matter how hard I try. Or maybe they can all smell my fear and vulnerability and that's a huge turn off or something.
I will leave you again with the Rupaul Valentine's card. I'm trying my best to learn to love myself one day. Sunday, February 1, is turning out to be a monster that must be domesticated.
This year has started out as being ridiculous. I really hope it's just a January thing. Serious events have been coming in from all directions, and I wish more of them were positive. And it's been going on with my family, friends, work and relationships. All you can do is hope that it will all be over soon and will calm the fuck down as it's only just February 1st and I'm already sick of everything.
Incase your wondering, I want to get as good as this! Sunday, January 25, Things Lois is scared of. Well, it's been a while,. Things were dragging last time I wrote here and I ran out of things to say. I said to myself at the time that I'd only come back if I had something new to say. Which could be this, I'm not quite sure.
I've been thinking about writing again lately and it feels like it's time. I started schema therapy on January 8th through the nhs after what has felt like forever to finally get to this point. I'm not going to even bother putting a link on here, Wikipedia it for yourself, peasant. I'm working on a film and I'm going back packing in South America at the end of March.
There's other shit going on but I'm not here to drop names of people in my life right now that are of my current concern. You all bloody read this anyway and I'm not about to put your secrets all over the Internet! I'm trying to think of a title for this, something about fear, well, because that's what this is going to be about.
I have spoken at length on here before about yoga and the benefits I have had from practicing it. I went this morning. And it's closing down end of next week. I've been going there regularly for about 2 years now so it's sad to see a place like that go.
So despite waking up on a sofa in Camden with a cracking hangover and the usual Sunday public transport bust ups, I made a point of getting over myself and going for one of the last classes. The teacher was a substitute that I've done yoga with a couple of times before, and I particularly enjoy his teaching for a few reasons, including the fact that he even looks like a bloody guru. But my favourite part is that at the start of the class he talks to us for about 10 minutes, just about anything really, and about how it can be brought in to yoga.
Its fair enough to be skeptical about some of the stuff that comes out of what I can only describe but not to be discrimitive about 'new age thinking'. And I don't buy everything I hear.
But I do buy some of what this teacher talks about. Particularly today when he spoke about fear. About remembering back to when you were a child, and you didn't fear very much, there was this protection from the world through your parents. It's around puberty that things basically go down hill till you've got to a point where you can't remember who you are anymore because of all these layers of fear you've accumulated over the.
Whether it's society or social based or just something that somehow you have created yay loonies! So I'm going to be honest and tell you about what I fear, from typical things a 25 year old white woman with a ford ka fears to just random shit that I have no idea as to where it comes from. Here goes Teletubbies, or anything that looks like that. Like that old windows desktop wallpaper of the blue skies and the rolling hills.Psychedelic Nightmare. 2, likes · 2 talking about this.
