Brian brings an update on the recording of Ministry’s PSALM 69 – RE-IMAGINED…

Here are the FINISHED LYRICS for the re-imagined PSALM 69 song we’re going to be submitting into this fine contest put together by Tunecore and Ministry. We’ve only got until friday of this week to finish this track so we’re working hard to pull it all together.

Working on this track – I’ve been surprised to find that I misunderstood many of the samples. For instance – what I thought was “fire – god’s dreamer” is actually “liar – blasphemer”. How did I screw that up?

I’m working on the vocals now so you can expect to hear something new and exciting tomorrow. It’s really almost done!!!!

LYRICS FOR PSALM 69 – RE-IMAGINED

Verse 1

They march up and down the street
Planting their feet
One foot in front of the other
Can you hear me brother?

Do you bear the mark?
If not they’ll drag you off

Make you understand
His master plan
The body of christ looked unto me
He made them better than man
And now they preach unto thee
Of the great short attention span

Verse 2

Wish we could turn back the clock
Before they fed us this crock
Should have saved Assange
They were the chosen ones

Have you prayed today?
Get on your knees and pray

Humble yourself before the messiah
Learn your place – call him sire
In his name we maim
With christ to conspire
Learning to prowl in his name
More souls to acquire
Taking their message door to door
Find out what you stand for
Promises of everlasting life
But at what price?

Verse 3

They call it war
A war that we pay for
A fight to stop heresy
Not written but spoken decree

Please present i.d.
Before we make you bleed

Listen to the words of our lord
Learn to fight with his sword
They tend to the sheep
Wiring up the flock
Their minds are asleep
They feel a mild shock
Focus their weary mind
Mission so defined
Promise to live forever
With no proof whatsoever

Hook

Revolution comes
New world
New order
Psalm 69

Still no chorus worked up but definitely have a concept of what we want to do with that. Oh, we should have a third verse very soon. Be patient. I figured you guys were tired of reading about Julian Assange in our blogs but look – SUPRISE – I included him in these lyrics. Well, that’s it for now. Should probably get back to work and finish writing these lyrics so we can have this done before the end of the month. So … what do you think of the lyrics?

INTERNET WAR – 16 yr old soldier falls in combat and Russia sides with Assange

by on Dec.11, 2010, under POLITICS

Brian of Euphonic Dissonance on Julian Assange – Wikileaks – Free Speech – and Net Neutrality…

The internet war is here and people around the world are taking sides – and taking prisoners.

ON THE SIDE OF ASSANGE:

The Australian foreign minister says the United States is to blame for the release of thousands of diplomatic cables on Wikileaks, not Julian Assange. Good for you mister Australian foreign minister guy. Way to call it like it is. It’s reassuring to know that everyone in the world hasn’t completely lost their minds and they can’t all be muscled to agree with the American government.

In an interview with Reuters news agency, Kevin Rudd said: “Mr Assange is not himself responsible for the unauthorized release of 250,000 documents from the US diplomatic communications network. The Americans are responsible for that. The core responsibility, and therefore legal liability, goes to those individuals responsible for that initial unauthorized release.” Wow, this guy actually makes sense.

Hey, Senator Lieberman, you should hang out with this Rudd guy. Maybe some of his good sense will brush off on you.

WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange should get Nobel Peace Prize, says Russia. Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev have pledged support for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, and have gone as far as to suggest the beleaguered site’s frontman be honored with a Nobel Peace Prize.

The Guardian quotes a Kremlin source as urging international non-governmental organizations to think seriously about “nominating Assange as a Nobel Prize laureate.”

Julian Assange might deserve a Nobel Prize or at the least a Pulitzer Prize but I think Russia might want to reconsider giving that to a guy who might soon end up in prison – it didn’t work well for the Chinese – they gave a Nobel Prize to an empty chair. “We’re just gonna put the prize here in this empty chair and when the guy gets out of prison he can pick it up here.” Good plan China.

ON THE SIDE OF FREE SPEECH:

Meanwhile, somewhere else in the world – the first internet soldier has been taken down in the line of duty and you’ll be surprised to know HE’S ONLY 16 YEARS OLD. Dutch Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy on suspicion of involvement with the attacks of the MasterCard and Visa websites allegedly started by a group called Anonymous, who are sympathizers of WikiLeaks, reports the Wall Street Journal. See, I told you it was an INTERNET WAR.

Also, the amount of attacks online by Assange supporters are increasing. Attacks by pro-WikiLeaks activists are growing in strength as hackers add botnets and thousands of people download an open-source attack tool, security researchers said. Amazon, MasterCard, Visa, PayPal and the Swiss payment transaction firm PostFinance are just some of the companies that cut support for wikileaks and now are being targeted by these attacks. If you want to know more about how DDOS or Distributed Denial Of Service attacks work – then CLICK HERE for a great explanation.

ON THE SIDE OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT:

The American government has decided that if they can’t take down Wikileaks with current American law then they’ll just make new laws. The SHEILD act (Marvel comics fans should be laughing at this) would amend US Code Title 18 Section 798, which is identified as the Espionage Act, to provide legal protections that already apply to communications intelligence to human intelligence sources. THE GOAL, said the senators who sponsor it, is to protect the lives of confidential sources and their families.

(that’s great – it actually says ESPIONAGE on the S.H.E.I.L.D. logo)

THE GOAL, is to destroy anything and anyone that might threaten the illustrious careers of these corrupt politicians that are pushing these laws. What are you hiding? Just exactly how many skeletons are we going to find before this thing is over?

A free press can be good or bad, but, most certainly, without freedom a press will never be anything but bad.  ~Albert Camus

INTERNET WAR – Glenn Beck sides with Assange – McConnell calls him Terrorist

by on Dec.08, 2010, under POLITICS

Brian brings us more on the destruction of the internet…

Glenn Beck must be reading our blog because he’s siding with Julian Assange. Beck has taken it a step further and suggested that the CIA is orchestrating the demise of Assange. Oh Beck, you crazy conspiracy theorist you but really – thanks for reading the blog and hey, thanks for the support.

Glenn Beck supports HIGH TECH TERRORISM

I’ll bet Glenn Beck loves listening to Euphonic Dissonance. Bet we’re all over his iPod.

Meanwhile in Washington the people that Glenn says are lying to us are rushing to burn Assange at the stake. Mitch McConnell labeled Assange a high tech terrorist. Wow, that sounds pretty serious Mr. McConnell. So you’re suggesting that guy with the shifty eyes – the one that I see at Starbucks posting things to his blog via his Macbook – he might be a terrorist? I knew that guy was no good.

Terminator is a High Tech Terrorist

My CPU is a neural net processor; a learning computer. I’m also a HIGH TECH TERRORIST.
Come on!!! Really???

I wouldn’t mind being called a high tech ninja. That would be cool.

Euphonic Dissonance is keeping a very close eye on this story. Why? Because it could potentially change free speech and the internet as we know it. Mitch McConnell said it himself – if they can’t stop this journalist under current law then they’ll make new laws that will stop him. This could be the biggest change of the internet in the history of the internet and we are alive to witness it happen. I just pray that Assange wins because I fear the outcome if he doesn’t.

Today we live in a free internet world. Free to post what we want. Free to download what we please. Free to read what we like. Free to say what we wish. AND IF WE DON’T LIKE IT WE CAN GO TO A DIFFERENT WEBSITE!!! Our current internet is the embodiment of free speech and I think to change it would be a travesty. It seems that our government is hell bent on destroying this amazing thing it has created and creating a new internet that they will police. Is this really what we want from our elected officials? It’s all so cleverly disguised as something else and it’s hard for the American people to see the truth behind this story – but Glenn Beck sees it – I see it – thousands of hackers see it – why don’t you?

What progress we are making.  In the Middle Ages they would have burned me.  Now they are content with burning my books.  ~Sigmund Freud, 1933

INTERNET WAR – it’s on!!! – choose your side: WIKILEAKS OR AMERICAN GOVERNMENT

by on Dec.04, 2010, under POLITICS

Brian of Euphonic Dissonance on FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND THE INTERNET.

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.
– George Orwell

I can’t believe what I’m seeing unfold in the media. We are finally caught up in the worlds first INTERNET WAR. It’s time to choose a side and it’s not an easy choice to make – especially if you live in America – the frontline of this war. Your choices seem to be hacker Julian Assange – or supporting the United States government and it’s troops. At least that’s the way our government is painting this particular picture. From where I’m standing it looks like a picture of Julian Assange holding a pistol to an American soldier’s head – but there’s something about the picture that just doesn’t look quite right. It’s like it’s been photoshopped – like when people were putting Sarah Palin’s head on the bodies of supermodels.

Or in this case her head superimposed onto random gun toting white trash girl.

The United States of America’s government has launched a witch hunt hate campaign that is sweeping over our country and threatens to destroy freedom of speech on the internet as we know it.

In this corner we have lightweight Julian Assange. An ex-hacker (1987 found guilty of hacking in Australia),  journalist, publisher and internet activist.

And in this corner we have heavyweight contender …. give a big round of applause for ….. THE US GOVERNMENT.

The U.S. government has made it’s first strikes in the form of manipulating businesses to deny wikileaks service (paypal cuts off wikileaks account, wikileaks U.S. server shutdown) and perhaps also manipulating other world governments to take action against wikileaks (France to ban wikilinks, Hillary Clinton calls world leaders to express regret on Wikileaks) and maybe even trumping up rape charges against the founder of wikileaks in Sweden.

Oh, president Obama – you disappoint me. You said you would support internet neutrality….

“President Obama is strongly committed to net neutrality in order to keep an open Internet that fosters investment, innovation, consumer choice, and free speech.” – White House Blog

…and yet when someone comes along and exposes something that might show all the filth and corruption hiding in United States government you’re suddenly just as much a corrupt politician as everyone else in Washington. Thanks for showing who you really are Mr. President.

“WikiLeaks has put at risk not only the cause of human rights but also the lives and work of these individuals. We condemn in the strongest terms the unauthorized disclosure of classified documents and sensitive national security information.’’ — White House

So here we are. The country with an amendment to it’s constitution that ensures a persons freedom of speech and we’re launching hate campaigns that spit on that very amendment. 1st Amendment U.S. constitution

Well, I suppose that Glenn Beck was right. Obama must be a Nazi because now he’s the equivalent of a Nazi book burner in my mind. I’m sorry I didn’t listen to you Glenn. It was hard to pay attention after you labeled Obama a racist. That just doesn’t make any damn sense. Did you even rehearse your show that day? What were you thinking? Were you dosing on Limbaugh’s pills or something? And then on top of that you called him a socialist and a communist and who knows what other words with –ist on the end.

The irony of this – it’s mind boggling. America government invents the internet – a canvas for all the world to voice their opinions and practice free speech  – and they end up running in fear of the thing they created when it starts reading their minds and telling all their secrets. They can’t control their creation so now they’ll find anyway they can to kill it. You can’t blame the government for being upset but that doesn’t make them right. They’re trying to convince us all that this is going to kill American soldiers when in reality it really just caused a lot of the Washington diplomats some extra stress while they covered up their lies.

Euphonic Dissonance supports free speech and we support Wikileaks and Julian Assange in his efforts to fight this smear campaign. What America is doing is wrong. We don’t support this gross violation of our constitutions first amendment. The internet made every individual in the world a journalist. There are actually people in Washington trying to argue that Assange isn’t a journalist.

“He is not a journalist. He is not a whistleblower. He is a political actor. He has a political agenda,” State Department spokesman P J Crowley

Well, Mr. Crowley (can’t help but think of Ozzy Osbourne when I say his name) the definition of journalist is …

1
a : a person engaged in journalism; especially : a writer or editor for a news medium b : a writer who aims at a mass audience
2
: a person who keeps a journal
… so according to that definition Mr. Assange is a journalist, and come to think of it so are you Mr. Crowley (there it is again), and so am I, and so is anyone who chooses to write a blog because they are a writer who aims at a mass audience. There is no badge or rite of journalism.

America, correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t a person innocent until proven guilty? Why does everyone suddenly believe that Julian Assange has committed a crime. There is no evidence of this. There is simply a lot of political and media rhetoric that tries desperately to imply a crime was committed. Until America can show solid evidence of wrong doing then we should not be swayed by these political contortionists.

So please don’t fall for the hype America. Let’s all join together and raise our voices and let our leaders know we won’t tolerate them trampling on our constitution. Let’s save free speech and save our internet. Let’s all be the journalists that we can be and post blogs that expose our government for what it truly is. Viva la internet revolution!!!

Thank you fellow American patriots and journalists around the world.

I Love Little Girls!!!

by on Mar.17, 2009, under MUSIC

If you don’t want to read the lyrics scroll down for the rant

I love little girls they make me feel so good
I love little girls they make me feel so bad
When theyre around they make me feel
Like Im the only guy in town
I love little girls they make me feel so good
They dont care if Im a one way mirror
Theyre not frightened by my cold exterior
They dont ask me questions
They dont want to scold me
They dont look for answers
They just want to hold me
Isnt this fun
Isnt this what lifes all about
Isnt this a dream come true
Isnt this a nightmare too
They dont care about my inclinations
Theyre not frightened by my revelations
Uh oh take a second take
Uh oh its a mistake
Uh oh Im in trouble
Uh oh the little girl was just to little
Too little, too little, too little
Isnt this what lifes all about
Isnt this a dream come true
Isnt this a nightmare too . . .
And I dont care what people say
And I dont care what people think
And I dont care how we look walking down the street

Oingo Boingo

AND NOW MY RANT

Why is it that when someone writes about rape it’s okay but if a musician writes a song about the same topic they must be a rapist? An interview in the paper with a cop killer is okay but if someone puts it in a song they’re album is pulled from the shelves. Funny how we jump to conclusions. Music can tell a story just like any other form of art. Musicians often express personal issues in their music but we have also been known to speak on the world around us. And why not write it from the perspective of the person doing wrong? It’s an exercise to make us all think. What’s going through the mind of the rapist, child molester, murderer, social deviant, etc…etc? We all want to know. We all sit back and wonder what motivates these people to do the things they do. Is it a chemical imbalance? Were they raised this way? Or didn’t something just snap one day? And if something just snapped could it happen to me? I remember watching a show about women in prison (and no it wasn’t a porn). There was a girl in prison for beating her friend to death with a baseball bat. When they asked her why she did it she said, “I just wanted to see what it would be like. I just wanted to see what would happen.”

I’m glad the we live in a country that allows us to speak freely about anything we want. I think we should fight anyone that is trying to take that right away. There are a lot of things wrong with this country but we have some power just through our ability to speak our minds. Government cannot have total control as long as we have this right. I believe that the printed word is sacred….regardless of the contents!!! I think it’s funny how the christian right are always looking to pull certain books from libraries but no one would hear of it if I turned around and said the bible should be pulled from the shelves because “Song of Solomon” is pornographic. So many contradictions and so little time. Here’s just a small sampling of the aforementioned (straight out of the holy bible).

  1. Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.
  2. Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.
  3. A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.
  4. Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard,
  5. Spikenard and saffron; calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices:
  6. A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.
  7. Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.

And who doesn’t love a girl who has two young roes that are twins?
