A Beans on toast approach to the world!

Well, I would of never thought a burnt piece of bread with some haricot beans covered in salt and sugar rich tomato sauce would make me think(I.e beans on toast) yeah… that’s real life. In fairness. I knew that already… that is, that we are all indoctrinated into believing stock market crashes and falls. High interest rates, low interest rates. The country in deficit.robin hood, robin hood costume, beans on toast Austerity is required. News people. ‘ITS ALL BOLLOCKS’ it doesn’t actually exist. YOUR government is rich. It is rich beyond figures you can imagine. Look at Greece… borrow, borrow and borrow some more! Are they ever going to pay that back…..eeeeeerrr! Nope! Will Greece fall and become the ashes of Europe? that’s also Nope! If they choose to subject their citizens to tax cuts, benefit cuts etc….. its because its a paper exercise…. Lets jump to the middle east, or third world Africa.. Choose you country, any one you like….Are your parliamentarians suffering from the cuts and suffering….eerrr Nope!
But lets change tact completely….oil giants (insert preferred choice here)….profits down to a noiminal $37 billion, crude oil down 25% per barrel…. job cuts are inevitable! REALLY! job cuts on $37 billion? Why, are those CEO’s not quite not rich enough, that the proles have to lose their jobs…..??? A Person who I trust in this matter more than any other is James Altulcher…read this post, his far more qualified than me to speak.

Beans on toast

So we finally get to the song that’s the ignition behind this boiling point of a blogpost (rant).
A folk singer under the pseudonym of Beans on Toast,beans on toast, rolling up the hill rolling up the hill” width=”300″ height=”107″ class=”alignleft size-medium wp-image-433″ />Very raw, very uncompromising, but very to the point….well worth a listen if you like violently strummed acoustic guitar and a real souly harmonica. The track in question is Robin hood costume. The taking from the rich to give to the poor rhetoric. Is it deeply socialist of me? no, not really its just fair. You , me and all of us are being conned, kept down and subjugated! I’ve used the following quote before but it deserves a second airing:- Osho said “No society wants you to be wise, It is against the investment of all societies”

….and for desert

As a supporting good read, I really became engrossed in Revolution by Russell Brand. Now you can question his motives and financial funding,revolution, russel brand but the premise is good. It’s conclusion, is the utopian ideal of equality. Which will never happen, because sadly we are all enveloped into the gerbil wheel of finance and economy. But it’s a good fairytale.

Well rant over…. but what is your rebellion song, your revolution song or just a plain f**k you song? let us know!

Not as patient as an angel!

Having the commodity of patience in abundance, means you can remain calm, In the face of adversity. Even when you’ve been waiting like what feels like forever or dealing with something so painstakingly slow or trying to teach someone how to do something, that they just don’t get. It involves acceptance and tolerance. The ability to be as patient as an angel. Well I’m impatience personified, and it would be tensioning the tendons and ligaments of truth to say I handle this emotion well.

Lets put it in layman’s terms. We all have 24 hours per day. In that we are all equal. However the amount of 24 hour periods is a little more open to hope and inquiry. So time is a wasting. The to musical opposites in question are, and in the blue corner is “I want it all (and I want it now)” by Queen. Freddie Mercury a man that you could argue, lived his life excessively and paid the price. In the red corner Patience of Angels by Eddie Reader. A beautiful lyrically crafted meander through a life of anonymity, repetition and hope. As with everything there is possibly a measured and counter balanced response. On this issue however the fence is to splintery and abrasive on my derriere, that I can only fall on one side.

So I’m a blue corner thinker. how long have I got on this ragged patch of earth? Unanswerable and unknown. patience, virtueHave I got time therefore to waste, dither, procrastinate, pontificate on the circumstances around me. Do I have time to allow the planets to align. Maybe I do, maybe I don’t? But waiting isn’t going to achieve anything. But the more analytical of you. The planners, the prodders and the calculators. Would see no method in this impulsive madness. The horizon can only be seen, when a sturdy platform, on firm footings has been erected to get a pure salient perspective of the horizon and all the beauty it holds. Alternatively bumped, broken, shamed and bruised encounter after encounter (not diminishing all the life experience along the route) you wake up one day, beaten to submission or joyous in a journeys end.

buffering, waiting, patienceThis is not about money, not about status or stature its about your Elysium on earth. The plateau where all your (and yours alone) satisfactions is met. I’m trying to find a balance of the 2 valuable enemies and allies. I would glean far more life credits in thinking that I threw everything and failed, than If I had all the tent poles erected but never the canvas.

So the advocacy here is patience may well be a virtue, It maybe a waste of time? “I was waiting for something extraordinary to happen but as the years wasted on, nothing ever did unless I caused it.” – Charles Bukowski. Impulsive people that are not as patient as an angel. They are just balls out, pigeon hole failure as the way not to do things, and deal with what life hurls at them. I am not so enveloped in wisdom that I have any definitive answer.

But an equation on our lives for the numerically ordered amongst us is one day waiting = one non-refundable day gone. I found this opinion and thought provocation from music. What life lessons have you learnt from music?

Fight song yourself to a better place!

If you’re pissed off. You want to blow off steam, maybe even break something. Then Fight song yourself to a better place. Sometimes you’re not looking to calm down just yet; you want to fuel the fire. This song is guaranteed to do just that. It’ll help your blood reach its boiling point. Because regardless of all the health, medical and spiritual advice spiralling in the ether, anger is a human emotion like it or not.

Use the following diatribe as recognition that why hate and anger is indeed destructive, and arguably potentially wounding to no other than yourself. It is also the polar opposite to Peace and Harmony. marilyn manson, fight song, anger, societyA popular script is to truly appreciate the good times, you would of had to experience the bad. So in this parallel to enjoy peace, you have to experience anger. So Let it all out to everyone that’s ever f**cked you off Fight Song by Marylin Manson.

Society Breeds hate


Well indeed it does, No hatred, anger or frustration would exist if it were not product of the world around us. What is your boiling point? Is it money, Is it prejudice or intolerance. Maybe it is the ineptitude of nothing more than simplistic human failing, that in your own eyes is tantamount
to hearecy itself.osha, society Osho said “No society wants you to be wise, It is against the investment of all societies” So you become subjugated, Suppressed by systems, taxes, governments. Fortunately a few amongst us rise against such human injustice. These people were angry once. When the anger has subsided, then rationality and purpose are born out of rage. But to find that talisman anger is a significant part of that journey. In the song in question the battle cry is “I’m not a slave to a God that doesn’t exist, But I’m not a slave to a world that doesn’t give a s**t”. Its just a step into what is reality for the vast and overwhelming majority of the worlds population. If your gonna get angry, may as well pick a big target.

Angry sportsman can be wrong


Anger isn’t all bad. Sports psychology will concur power, strength, determination and sheer will to conquer fellow man in the form of music will add fervour to the battle ahead. Sir Clive Woodward played “lose Yourself” by Eminem to his England Rugby team before a World Cup final, to hammer home the last chance saloon symphony.Stand or fall, live or die trying mindset.lewis moody, moody, mad dog, england,rugby If I recall correctly and with much fondness I believe England won that world cup. Was it because of a song? What science can ever ascertain such a fact or degree of importance. But one thing is for certain, a little measured anger didn’t hurt now did it!

So If its a Fight Song, An anger Song or just a letting off steam song. Because its healthier to let it out than blow a gasket letting it rumble unattended inside. What’s your go to f**k you song. I’m convinced we all have them, no matter how fervently you may deny it so what’s it to be?
