      If anyone's paying attention, they can see signs of this recession everywhere.

      One day, I was outside smoking a cigarette and a woman asked me for one. I answered that I have none because I got it from someone else. She asks someone else for a cigarette and she gets turned down by them as well. Then I just yell out, "No one has cigs of their own, it's a recession!" It's really sad how true this actually is.

      The price of cigarettes have risen from 5 to 10 dollars in the last two or three years. These are New York City prices mind you. It's not right for necessities of life (in this case, death) to be such ridiculous prices. Now, I realize that cigarettes have all those vice taxes on them, but I have to believe some of it is inflation as well. Flour last year went from $35 to $70 in less than a month. A sack of rice went from $5 to $13. Gas prices have gone down sure, but when inflation is going up higher than people's salaries are rising, it's basically an assfucking for a lot of people.

      It also doesn't help that people are losing their jobs left and right. I can name several friends whose parents have lost their jobs. In a few cases, both their parents. And with inflation, their savings mean less and less by the minute. Every time I look at the newspaper or news on TV, I see all this money getting pumped into companies, and still I see even more stories of thousands of people losing jobs. So much of the economy runs on people's faith in it. How the fuck is that supposed to make us feel?

      There are problems in NYC that really scream out the magnitude of shit we are in. Monthly subway fares are rising from $83 to $103. In addition to that, they're cutting bus lines and using less trains because they're laying off workers. In the colleges in NYC, specifically CUNY and SUNY, they're raising tuition bills AND they're lowering the budget that they get. Less teachers, less tutoring, less classes, less everything else. It seems every day that we're paying more for less.

      Times like these seem really bleak. And the next few years look more and more like shit to me. Well, to whoever is reading this, doubtfully anyone, it's important to enjoy some things while you can. Sex is usually free. Haha. Complain with friends and have a good hardy laugh at the world, listen to good music, eat good food, drink the best liquor first, and always smell the air and be thankful.

      This awesome ?indie? band. It's something new. And weird. Really weird. I'd like to hear some thoughts about it, and what you see as the story in the lyrics. Oh, and they do a kickass live show.

      An example of the lyrics:
      All i want to be is a shovely bubbly gobbly gook
      A seagull stole him from his slow mama's hands aboard the boat the sweet louisa
      And dropped him in the meadow-lands where wild hyenas taught him how to hunt old elephants
      So he spent his formative years eating out badunkadunk
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      He travelled across the sea in the belly of a japanese businessman on a pleasure ship to france
      And he don't know why she loves him
      And he don't know why the sun sets but
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Bang pow pow pow ahhhhhh
      And her father hated him with the passion of a dying chinaman
      He said get him out of here or i'm gonna bite of his face
      No daddy daddy don't daddy daddy
      Get the fuck out of my house
      No daddy daddy don't daddy daddy
      This is my house my house
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman
      Fee fi fo fum i smell the blood of an englishman

      Of course the one everyone knows is Gogol Bordello. I also know a few other names like Luminescent Orchestrii and Balkan Beatbox, but I would like to learn more. So if anyone has any other names or listens to gypsy at all, I'd like to hear.

      The coming school year looks pretty depressing. The only thing keeping me going is the great fucking concerts coming up this fall, as well as being able to see some people I haven't hung out with a while. And for those who are going into college for the first time. I guess good luck for you.

      It's called World Inferno, and it's a strangely orchestrated punk band. They not only have awesome music, but their live shows are one of the best I've been to. Check out a few songs on their myspace.

      They're a show tuney jazz punk band comprising of nine people. They're sound very different from other things I've heard for sure. I was just wondering if anyone else heard about them. I'm also seeing a show for them this weekend.

      I need to know more people who can go to late night concerts. Anyone in the NYC area up for it?

      Edit: Also was in Little Italy when Italia won the World Cup yesterday. I've never seen pasta go for higher prices.

      Yeah sure, give me your address and I'll send you one (are you allowed to send fags in the post?)
      Though. Will mean I will smoke the rest of the pack and since I haven't smoked in over a week, that would be a shame

      Pirates was enjoyable... I said it was only ok mostly because of the length. I hate sitting through long movies all the way through.

      There's all sorts of genres in my weekend movie list! None of the sports/action/comedy/drama? I'm a bit shocked that you haven't seen any of them. Not even the newer flicks like Red Eye or Fun With Dick and Jane?!?
