Lost deep in the wastelands of Arizona. Why, you ask?
So do I.
A place for my video reviews and toy collecting pics.
I currently collect: Mythic Legions by The Four Horsemen, Marvel's Avengers and Star Wars lines of SH Figuarts, and the occasional Kamen Rider.
I do a little Metal Build Gundam, and the odd Master Grade.
I still have Transformers and related 3rd Party Figs, DC, Star Wars, Statues/Busts and a few other items, but I am cutting back.
Really, I am.
Wild Mood Swings - The Cure - 1996
Wish is definitely possibly the greatest Cure album, and it was also very well received by fans, selling roughly four million copies. I delayed many years in buying the follow up album, Wild Mood Swings, having heard it was not well liked by Cure fans, and that it was a big departure from Wish. I recently picked it up for $4 (or free, depending on how you work the buy 2 get 1 free deal I got), and wow, was I glad I did. I am saddened I waited so long to buy it (much like my experience with Songs of Faith and Devotion, where the first track, I Feel You really through me for a loop, it didn't sound like the Depeche Mode I knew, so I didn't get it for a few years, but once I did it became my favorite album - that long rambling sentence was to lead into the follow) because two of the tracks are definitely two of the best tracks The Cure has ever produced. Granted there are a couple I don't really like at all, but for as good as most of them are, this album deserves to be better liked.
I really feel like Want describes me, almost to a T. Especially the first line.
i'm always wanting more anything i haven't got everything i want it all i just can't stop planning all my days away never find new ways to stay never feel enough today tomorrow must be more more drink more dreams more bed more drugs more lust more lies more hate more love more fear more fun more pain more flesh more stars more smiles more fame more sex however hard i want i know deep down inside i'll never really get more hope or any more time any more time any more time any more time i want the sky to fall in i want lightning and thunder i want blood instead of rain i want the world to make me wonder want to walk on water take a trip to the moon oh give me all this and give me it soon more drink more dreams more drugs more lust more lies more love however hard i want i know deep down inside i'll never really get more hope or any more time any more time any more time any more time
And again with two tracks this week - Treasure is possibly the most depressing Cure track I have heard. It is right up there with, and possibly more depressing than, Apart (from Wish, To Wish Impossible Things, also from Wish, is also very sad). For as often as I say I have a cold, black, shrivled up heart, incappable of feelings, Apart and Treasure are very moving songs.
She whispers "Please remember me When I am gone from here" She whispers "Please remember me but not with tears... Remember I was always true Remember that I always tried Remember I loved only you Remember me and smile... For it's better to forget Than to remember me And cry" "Remember I was always true Remember that I always tried Remember I loved only you Remember me and smile... For it's better to forget Than to remember me And cry"
