  2. I was the king of Kenmore Square, yes I was.
    I was a man outside in the streets, always had a buzz …
    … I was the king of Kenmore Square, and that is the truth.
    I was not a crazy man, definitely no goof …
    … I was a strong person, I went out every day
    I had jobs around the place, I went out every day …
    … I wasn’t allowed in the Buckminster Hotel.
    I got bothered by BU police like hell.

    I got bothered by the BU police so many different times.
    I been bothered by them, I could make up all types of rhymes.
    I can also go fast and remember all the things that they did to me.
    I would not lie to your reality …
    … But now them days are done, and now I’m here,
    with my sleeping bag in Allston.

  3. Strand of Oaks - Same Emotions (Official Video)

    I kind of love what this video says and or doesn’t say about lust/love/desire and or objectification. For me, it says that it all can be a two way and more than often ugly street. And that yes-people are still emulating Michael Jackson’s super amazing “Thriller” music video to this day… (Not a bad thing at all BTW)

    Okay must work now-only a few more days of summer freedom to edit ye olde thesis…..

  5. #AMostWantedMan was brilliant. Philip Seymour Hoffman gave a heartbreakingly great performance. I just didn’t want it to end a great character study and script. It just doesn’t seem fair that Mr. Hoffman is no longer with us.

  9. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about. When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”. The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide… But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focussing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.

    I’d have to agree as I also suffer from this disease called Depression/bipolar disorder….or whatever you’d like to call it….
