All along the watchtower

i wanna just introduce this song to the people who never heard….it is really good. Originally written by Bob Dylan, but then covered by Jimi Hendrix….classic rock from the 70s

by the way, read it from the end to the beginning…

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
Theres too much confusion
I cant get no relief
Businessman they drink my wine
Plow men dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth
Hey hey

No reason to get excited
The thief he kindly spoke
There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke but uh
But you and I weve been through that
And this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now
The hours getting late
Hey

Hey

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Bare-foot servants to, but huh
Outside in the cold distance
A wild cat did growl
Two riders were approachin
And the wind began to howl
Hey
Oh
All along the watchtower
Hear you sing around the watch
Gotta beware gotta beware I will
Yeah
Ooh baby
All along the watchtower

Band of the Week

Plain White T’s

Gay? Maybe. It’s just the tone of the voice of their vocalist that first attracted me to this song. It’s quite a good example on a good meaningless song that Elixir would dislike when it’s obviously at the least decent. I even got to like the instrumentals in the background. I spent 4 hours listening to the radio waiting for some fucked up station to put this song again. 99.6 won

And check the link at the end of the post. It’s even better than the original song. There won’t be any pics this time due to homosexuality issues.

“Hey There Delilah”

Hey there Delilah
Don’t you worry about the distance
I’m right there if you get lonely
Give this song another listen
Close your eyes
Listen to my voice, it’s my disguise
I’m by your side

Oh it’s what you do to me

Amman Fails the Test of Nature

I’ve read in some Newspaper some time ago, around 2 months ago, that Amanet Al 3asemeh has spent some number in millions of JDs on fixing the sewage and drainage systems in the streets in order to get through the flooding problems we face every year. The number was extremely huge that the article stated it was about 50 times the amount that was spent on the same purpose for the last 50 years all summed together.

I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the street joining The Gardens street and running near my house and to the Ma3aref circle was flooded at the first sign of rain some weeks ago. Way to go Amaneh, I’m sure that amount of money was well spent.

Chronicles of a Survivor (7)

We are creatures of delusion, bound to wander in a world of dreams. Now lusting for an imaginary heaven which no one could ever even dream of, now paranoid at an ethreal ghost reaching to end our lives when the street is dark enough. Controlled by the very essence that dwells in our brains, a soul maybe, maybe just an utter randomness of the universe. The big master plan which we all are pawns in, the same master plan that is amenable to collapse at the very moment we snap out and actually make our own decisions. Everything we perceive is just an illusion, a way in which your mind likes to explain stuff to you. It equally indicates that we are too stupid to accept the world as it is, and the fact that the outer world might be, as well, another manifestation of our thoughts thus taking shape only in the gray matter of our brains.

 

 

Ever wondered if one person, animal, thingy would make a mistake and get off its masterminded track? To go left or right? If you’re supposed to go right to get to the proper end of the world then what would happen? You might reply with a really nice-to-believe-in and humanological answer: “There’s a supernatural power making sure we don’t go astray, making sure that everything works as planned”. Why are we living then? To get that supernatural power the satisfaction a little boy acquires while watching his train toy fully knowing exactly every point it’ll cross on its track? If every freaking decision you make, every step you take is already counted for then why make them? It might need an outside observer to give us an objective answer. Till then, let it go as easy as it can.

Game of The Week : SunAge

This review is from the mighty RLSLOG , Thanks for the great Reviews as always, its a good game, and i liked it

This game isn’t “low budget”, although it might seem like that at first glance because it has no 3D graphics.

This game was created with the intention of creating a strategy game that focuses alot more on gameplay and fun instead of graphics. Most reviews i’ve read were very positive about this game tbh… So no idea where you had to conclude from that this game is a “far cry” from the current top RTS games.

Group SKIDROW returns with another new low budget, unprotected game: SunAge is a real-time strategy which looks a bit like Dune in slightly more modern graphic interface – but it’s still far cry from today’s top strategies and it won’t probably entertain you for too long. There’s one positive feature though: small size. :)

SunAge is a PC realtime strategy game developed by Vertex4, where the player can experience immersive gameplay with 3 different races, each with their own arsenal of units, buildings and upgrades. The game takes place in a futuristic setting across 2 different worlds, ranging from a lush alien planet to desolate wastelands and through industrial cities.

SunAge is upon us – the solar system is dying. With Earth teetering on the brink of extinction, human Federals and mutant-gene Raak-Zun are battling for control of its dwindling resources. Then, into this savage conflict step the mysterious Sentinel, exploiting superior technology that opens gateways to an alien and resource-rich planet. An epic clash is set to unfold, and along with it the mystery of a sinister creature that lurks at the very heart of their troubles…

Game features:

  • 3 distinct races – Human, Raak-zun and Sentinel- each with their own units, buildings, technology advantages and disadvantages.
  • Alternate modes for all units, dual functionality for greater tactical depth.
  • Exploit weaknesses in the enemies network while strengthening your own connection lines
  • Formations: Intuitive formation handling and superior overview in battles
  • Campaign: 24 map single player campaign with strong storyline.
  • Multiplayer: Old skool multiplayer with focus on gathering 4 kinds of resources and outsmarting the opponent in battle.
  • Command queuing: Command your units to prone, build or attack where you want them and when you want them to do so.
  • Indirect Intelligent Targeting (IIT): order your units to focus on pre-selected targets.

System requirements:

  • Windows Me, Windows 2000, or Windows XP
  • 1 GHz Intel® Pentium® III or AMD® Athlon™ processor
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 1 GB free hard disk space
  • 64 MB 3D accelerated video card
