Destruction

Motivation

It's been pointed out that my earlier response of "Cycling" as something that relaxes me seems a bit odd, so after some careful research this afternoon I'd like to clarify my thinking while on the bike.

Certainly it's not always relaxing in a traditional sense, but can be that, can be exhilarating and can just be a bit odd. Some of you might know (and pax_draconis will no doubt point and laugh) that I have a strange desire to be in some kind of serious accident. Not in a getting hurt sense - but to be on a train or plane when it crashes for example. I want to walk away, but at the same time there's an adrenaline hit there somewhere. Anyway, back to the point - when I'm cycling on the road I am quite aware of both other hazards and how other road users are selfish c*nts on the whole. So while I weave my way through traffic, refusing to ride in the gutter, I find myself imagining what it would be like to be hit by some of the other vehicles. And what creative expletives I would have for the other party involved.

I never said I made sense. Maybe I shouldn't have ever read Crash.

Maybe I should just go to Alton Towers. They seem to have this new really silly ride that accellarates to seventy-billon miles an hour in three seconds, and is called Rita.

Six Songs - Valid for perhaps the next 10 minutes.

Current favourite six songs/Infect six others/Retire to safe distance

Tagged by kantti

Current in my case is currently influenced by the same CDs that have been in the car for months...
  1. Reise Reise - Rammstein. I like the start of the song best, and pretty much only because of the association with the Nottingham gig. Our little German friends put on a lovely show.

  2. Antique - Soman. It's dangerously close to slow dance music (rather than slowdance music) but has some well placed samples and picks the listener up and carries them along for 4:31.

  3. Chrome - VNV Nation. I'm sorry - I know it's only got slightly more credibility than McDonalds. No, I can't even attempt to justify it.

  4. Their Law - Prodigy/PWEI. It's neither band's best song, but it's got a kick in it and the track together is greater than the sum of its parts.

  5. Here Comes the War - New Model Army. This is one of the NMA songs that seem to rotate as my "favourite". Great to stomp to, great to shriek along to.

  6. Terrible Lie - Nine Inch Nails. Trent at his bontempi best. He's angry and he's not afraid to take it out on his soft toys. It's a bit slow by current standards, and lyrically infantile, but still...
Hmm, victims... berrega, pax_draconis, leebth, immerwahr, jul1et, esrunkatsu
