>>751886  there's no need to apologize


Well i still am...Im sorry im such a mess, and so unwilling to change seemingly...


It's the internet. Everything is worth a meltdown. Especially things that are technically exactly the same as what happened 30 years ago

>>751890  it's ok.  desire to improve yourself has to come from within.  I know how hard it is to build and harness that desire.
>>751882  on second thought, there is reason to be upset about it.  something about negating, mocking, and replacing the past, which is the same reason people were upset about the new Ghostbusters movie.  If that wasn't their intention, they shouldn't have named it Thundercats while not being at all faithful to the source material.


You are too good to me.

A danish one, so not one you know. But it's by a seventies band I already rather like, and I hadn't heard this one before. my father introduced me to it the other day and I keep listening to it.

It's basically interesting cause it HARSHLY puts down a particular event here in Denmark in 76. This band were never shy to use some VERY strong imagery when they protest.

>>751917  interesting; what was the event?

>>751920  looking into this new Thundercats series oddly enough.  I wasn't aware of the 2011 one.  I'm somewhat interested in watching it, but it seems to have been prematurely cancelled.  how about you?


Sounds nice enough.

Just sitting here with youtube going, trying to not fall asleep.


Takes some backstory.

In 1976, a fairly big party was held at Rebild Hills here in Denmark, to hold a celebratory tribute to the 200-year anniversary of the USA declaring independance. So it was a huge event with tons of people showing up, of course.

However, a danish theatre group called "The Sun Chariot" (taking their name from a danish artifact of historical importance, and who were already famous for the "Santa Army" event two years prior where they handed out free presents at a huge, pricey mall) more or less invaded the event, all dressed as native americans and the vietnamese, to protest how the event was sweeping USA's history of violence under the rug... which of course resulted in quite a bit of police retaliation despite the protest essentially being nonviolent.

So the song, "Rebild '76" essentially depicts danish higher-ups as, and I quote "licking Uncle Sam's dirty feet", calling out a few people directly.

These are the same people whose songs include titles such as "Wargasm" where they accuse world leaders of only firing bombs because it's the only way they can get off, "The Silent Lackey" where they call the general populace just as guilty in crimes committed by the government through inactivity, "God Help Us" which speaks against religiously-driven war and "Plutonium" which is a sarcastically upbeat tune about how much waste we produce.

>>751925  if you need more sleep, though, it might not be a bad idea.  I just opened the windows because it's so nice outside.  thinking I might take a nap myself


More power to you if you want to nap. I dont know what the temp is like outside, but it is raining here, so that is nice.


What can I say? I love these kinds of relentlessly hard-hitting protest songs. Here's a link if yer up for it. And a translation for my own funsies.

It was a blazing hot day under a bright
blue sky
And in Rebild Hills things were coming to a boil
Thank you for what you took, and thank you for what we got
Uncle Sams dirty toes received lick after lick
For the US of A had their birthday on that day
The US of A had their birthday on that day

THe little merchant Engborg lept ahead and took teh first lick
After all he'd been looking forward to it for a whole year
The USA's ambassador, John G. Dean
Licked away and declared that the toes were clean
Denmark's lovely queen was belle of the ball
But when it was her turn to lick, no sound was heard at all
Funny old Ulrich Ravnbøll had paid to get to lick
And those who'd paid to get to do it didn't complain a bit
The military, the students' choir and happy Papa Bue
Licked the whole stage clean before the party ended
But the biggest licker on that big day
Was Victor Borge, who was drooling with delight (1)

Thank you for what you took, and thank you for what we got
Uncle Sams dirty toes recieved lick after lick
For the US of A had their birthday on that day
The US of A had their birthday on that day

It was a blazing hot day underneath a bright blue sky
Then some shouting was heard and the party came to a halt
We're here to send a greeting, they couldn't make it on their own
The Indians and the Vietcong and all the others that you killed
For the US of A had their birthday on that day
And the US of A has blood on their flag

But those were the kinds of greetings that they did not like
But they were well prepared, there were plenty of policemen
One who sent a greeting from Cambodia
Quickly had his mouth shut with angry hits from their batons
Forty indians aboard the backs of beautiful horses
Were beaten by the police for wishing them a happy birthday

To say these things out loud is the purest terror
Performed by evil drug addicts and their filthy communism
People were very angry on that oh, so happy day
And yelled at the top of their lungs, "Hang them from a tree"
LAdy Liberty's tears has put out her own fire
We remember that which you forget in your Freedom-euphoria

We're here to send a greeting, they couldn't make it on their own
The indians and the vietcong and the others that you killed
For the US of A had their birthdday on that day
And the US of A ha blood on their flag
The US of A has blood on their flag
The US of A has blood on their flag

(1) Most people being mentioned in this verse are danish politicians (excluding the queen, of course), but Victor Borge was a danish born pianist who moved to america and became a famous "comedy pianist" as he combined silly slapstick comedy with classical piano playing. He was dearly beloved in both countries, but seemed to still always prefer the US.

You might for a moment think that I was here, but soon you will realize that it was but a fleeting illusion (try not to feel too sad, in your mind's eye and in your heart, I will always be real). Or maybe it wasn't? Well, considering the briefness of it, might as well have been. You're spending too much time thinking on this now, honestly. But that's still okay.
The less-illusionary me went to sleep, and tells you g'night. The illusionary me tells the same thing though, so technically, you got to enjoy this moment of pre-sleep well-wishing in two different ways. You're just so special that you warranted that, and as such, you should take good care of yourself.


Sleep well illusion.
