Me own private hell . . .

I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime

Reflecting on my past life & it doesn't have much time

Cos at 5 oçlock they take me to the gallows pole

The sands of time for me are running low

When the priest comes to read me the last rites

I take a look through the bars at the last sights

Of a world that has gone wrong very wrong for me

Can it be there some sort of error?

Hard to stop the surmounting terror

Is it really the end & not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me I am dreaming

Its not so easy to stop from screaming

But words escape me whe n I try to speak

Tears flow but why am I crying . . .

Above are the opening bars to Iron Maiden's Hallowed Be Thy Name which reflects the fooking situation I am in now. Few more minutes & I will be making the torturous trek towards Bukit Jalil stadium fer the fooking Jacky Cheung concert. To cap it all of, the skies have darkened in anticipation of a super heavy downpour to make sure I will be drenched before making it into the arena of hell.

What have I done to deserve this - To spend the rest of me Friday evening in the company of several thousand undiscerning, screaming, glow-stick waving, mata sepet, Canto-pop fans !?! This is seriously me own personal hell!

Me hands are all clammy. Me head is full of anxiety. Me ticker is pounding with fear. Me status of cool is in irreversible meltdown. . .

Dear people, please note that I may never recover from this aural rape of me senses, so this might just be me last post as a citizen of cool (cue super melodramatic music) . . .

For whom the bell tolls
Time marches on
For whom the bell tolls

(Chorus bit from a little Metallica number)

How was the mosh pit then last nite?? Hope it improved significantly after your SMS last nite.

I'm NOT sorry that you couldn't be saved from your trip to hell but been there done that so its about time you got your fair dosage. At least you get to see what its like to be on the OTHER side...HA! HA!

BTW have you entered the lottery for Led Zep reunion gig in London on Nov 26? Full line-up + Jason Bonham on drums for a full 2 hour show @ London Arena with some other guests.

Can't afford to fly to London oso nevermind la, but if manage to get the tix (₤125 a pop), can flog it off on e-bay or something & make a bit of $$. But I think the site may be a tad busy as have not been able to register as yet. Go to http://www.ahmettribute.com/
