  • Divide and Conquer, Hüsker Dü, 1985

    Prophetic. They predict the internet and society today way back in 1985….and they predict the attempted Coup d’Etat that is occurring now.

    Hüsker Dü is one of my top 3 bands.

    My favorite quote about them: Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic said that Nirvana’s musical style was “nothing new; Hüsker Dü did it before us.”

     

    ‘Divide And Conquer”
    -Hüsker Dü – 1985

    Well they divided up all the land
    And we’ve got states and cities
    Cities have their neighborhoods
    And more subdivisions

    There’s countries divided by walls
    Oceans and latitudes
    And longitude, longing to find out
    Just what they’re missing, whoa

    They’re lots of area codes
    And nine digit zip codes
    Secret decoder ring codes
    Arteries, shopping nodes

    We’ll invent some new computers
    Link up the global village
    And get AP, UPI, and Reuters
    To tell everybody, news news

    We’ll be one happy neighborhood
    Spread out across the world
    Who’s going to stop that burglar
    From breaking in my house
    If he lives that far away, wha

    We’ll be just like old friends
    No means to your ends
    The police state is to busy
    The neighborhood’s getting out of hand

    Big Brother on every wall
    Muzak plays in all the halls
    Empires see the rise and fall
    They divide, conquer

    It’s not about my politics
    Something happened way too quick
    A bunch of men who played it sick
    They divide, conquer

    It’s all here before your eyes
    Safety is a big disguise
    That hides among the other lies
    They divide, conquer, what oh oh, oh oh

    Well I expect I won’t be heard
    ‘Cause my silence is assured
    Never a discouraging word
    They divide and conquer

    They divide and conquer
    Divide and conquer
    They divide and conquer
    Divide and conquer, listen

    Na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na
    Na na na na, whoa

    Divide and conquer
    Divide and conquer
    And conquer
    Divide and conquer
    And conquer
    Divide and conquer
    And conquer, listen

    La la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    La la la, whoa, yeh

      Awesome.

      You know I liked (not loved) Nirvana, but wasn’t a big Dave Grohl fan for a while.

      The Foo Fighters grew on me.

      i can tell you where i was when i first heard these bands: Guns n Roses, Nirvana, Phish, and Husker Du…clear as day where i was and what i was doing.

      each time was a ‘HOLY-SHIT’ moment

      i enjoy all the fuckward’s comments over there about this device.

      all full of indignation, until it’s their ass on the line, then ‘praise be, the USAF and boeing’.

      that and the economy and stck market have been ready to collapse any time now for 4 years…yep…collapsing all right, i’ve doubled my money.

      some good articles ther tho

      Hawaii update from our man on the crater rim! Well 3 miles away from it actually.

      🙂

      May 20 – ALPHA UPDATE: Lava is in the ocean!

      – Puna District:
      * Flow front # 3 has split into 2 flows and as of 06:00 (6:00 a.m.) 5/20, both are entering the ocean near Mac Kenzie Beach Park on Hwy 137.

      * Flow front # 1 crossed Hwy 137 near the 13 mile marker (also near Mac Kenzie Beach Park) at approximately 23:00 (11:00 p.m.) 5/19 last night and is also entering the ocean.

      * The following roads are closed and all are asked to stay out of the area.
      – Highway 137 is closed between Kamaili Road and Pohoiki Road.
      – Kamaili Road is closed to all through traffic.

      * Due to the lava entering the ocean off Highway 137 in the vicinity of McKenzie Park, the following policies and health warnings are in effect:

      – Sulfur Dioxide emissions have greatly increased.

      – Be aware of the laze (Lava haze) hazard and stay away from any ocean plume. Laze is formed when hot lava hits the ocean sending hydrochloric acid and steam with fine glass particles into the air. Health hazards of laze include lung damage, and eye and skin irritation. Be aware that the laze plume travels with the wind and can change direction without warning.

      BOTTOM LINE: This means residents east of Mac Kenzie Beach Park (toward Isaac Hale Beach Park and Kapoho) can only exit via the east end of Hwy 137 and Hwy 132.

      Residents west of Mac Kenzie Beach Park (toward Kahena and Kaimu) can only exit via the west end of Hwy 137 and Hwy 130.

      – Halema`uma`u/Kilauea:
      * For now, Pelehonumea remains busy in Puna so we are pretty quiet as of this morning in Volcano/Halema`uma`u area.

      A shout out to all the members of our Armed Forces! Hope you all had a great Armed Forces Day yesterday,

      Definitely wasn’t the best movie of the year.

      Deadpool 2 is pretty good, though.

      Hmm…The Expanse is good. Although SyFy just announced that it won’t be back for a 4th season. Hopefully some other network will pick it up.

      Altered Carbon was interesting.

      Season 7 of Homeland wasn’t bad.

      Legion is interesting, if you can follow it.

      Dead Pool 2 is a hoot. The baby legs scene is blizzare.

      We watched the first season of ‘The Expanse’ Liked the hard=bitten romantic detective, and the plot was twisty enough to stay interesting. Also liked the first season of ‘American Gods’.

      It is an entertaining movie. The writers including Ryan Reynolds have great senses of humor.
      I do like how the guy pokes fun at himself ove Green Lantern. Dead Pool 2 won’t win any Oscars , but a great view.

      As much as Green Lantern sucked, he probably wouldn’t want to go back in time and not do it, since it’s where he met his wife.

      You could not have received timely medical care here. Money cannot buy healthcare here. You just get in line. IF you are an Elite member, they would probably send you to the US for treatment. They have been doing this for years. It is much worse now.
