In Defense of My Weaknesses

Someone must represent me to the world.

Whomever I choose to carry out this important task should be free of emotional challenges and appear confident and wise beyond reproach.

Obviously, it ain’t gonna be me…

I Pick Theordor Suess Geisel and Papa Roach

I would love to say something really, really intelligent about the subject of personal weakness but these two entities know way more about it than I do.

Allow me to introduce you to two of my personal gods:

God Number OneTheordor Suess Geisel

TSG condenses what could be a fairly large bible down to this statement:

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

and ~

God Number TwoPapa Roach

In this video – Kick In the Teeth – they remind us that hierarchy is inevitable and as such presents challenges which must be overcome.

WARNING:

This video depicts incredible physical violence.

1:17 – pointed brass knuckles to the head

2:06 – person nailed from behind by big baseball bat bully

3:37 – pedestrian struck by vehicle from behind

Even More Hurtful: Slavery leaves little evidence.

Thank you, friend.

Barry out.

Kick in the Teeth Lyrics

We live in a cold dark world with venom in it’s fangs.
You can spit it in my face but I know I’ll be ok
It’s on the attack. It’s a war, It’s a game.
A ball and chain chew my arm off to get away
Don’t fight, or it deny it, invite it cause when it ..

Feels like a kick in the teeth, I can take it.
Throw your stones and you won’t see me break it.
Say what you want, take your shots.
You’re setting me free with one more kick in the teeth
(Na na na na na)
Kick in the Teeth (na na na na na na)

I gotta say thanks cause you kick me when im down
I’m bleeding out the mouth.
I hope you know I’m stronger now.
I’m taking the hate, I’m turning it all around.
I wont go down ’til I’m six feet underground.
Dont fight, or it deny it, invite it, cause when it …

Feels like a kick in the teeth, I can take it.
Throw your stones and you won’t see me break it.

Say what you want, take your shots.
You’re setting me free with one more kick in the teeth
(na na na na na )
Kick in the teeth (na na na na na)

What doesnt kill me only, will make me stronger in my head
In my head

(guitar solo)

Cause when it
Feels like a kick in the teeth, I can take it.
Throw your stones and you won’t see me break it.
Say what you want, take your shots
You’re setting me free with one more kick in the teeth
(na na na na na )
Kick in the teeth
(na na na na na)
Say what you want. Take your shots.
You’re setting me free with one more kick in the. teeth
(na na na na na)
Kick in the teeth (na na na na na)
Kick in the teeth (na na na na na)
Kick in the teeth (na na na na na)

  1. Interesting quote from TSG, Barry. Sounds almost Jungle Book-ish! Good luck for 2011.

    Enjoy the journey.

  2. So, was that thee Dr. Seuss?? lol I love him. That was an amazing quote. It was very “There’s a Wocket in my Pocket”, but inspirational at the same time..nice. Kick in the Teeth is a pretty cool song, and I’m not really a fan of Papa Roach’s earlier stuff. But this song is promising, they’re definitely getting better.

    hey Jasmine – yay Dr. Suess! Sneeches on the Beeches is another tomb by the good doctor and this fairy tale should be tied to every person’s hair until they can recite it by heart. Only THEN would the book be cut free so folks could have their head on straight.

    Thanks missus.

  3. I could represent you to the world Barry, I am free of emotional challenges, appear confident, certainly wise beyond reproach and have years of experience.

    I am available for an reasonable hourly rate of $200 with an up front bond of $10,000. This shouldn’t pose a problem for a man of your means.

    When the funds appear in my Paypal account we can get down to the business of your personal image to the world, which needs a little tweaking.

    Please hurry with the funds as I am expecting many clients for this new service of mine and would hate for you to miss the boat.

    I could think of no better representative than you, Bill.

    And only $10,000 & $200 per hr?!

    I can tell you really want the job… 😉

  4. I love the quote above- “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

    I think it is a very accurate statement that can be applied to a more broad picture.

    @Mandy June@Bank Rates,
    Yes, I agree with you Mandy.

    Youer than You. wow, we raced how many million other beggars to get here and then we bitch.

    Ironic, no?

    We’re winners, Winners, WINNERS!

    Thank you madam.

  5. Hi Barry, Me-thinks Bill has seriously undervalued his services and you at the same time. I would represent you but I fear I am more unstable than you are! Perhaps I should consider Bills offer as well. There you go Bill, you have a prospective $20,000 coming your way already, don’t s’pose you do pro-bono do you??

    Best Wishes,

    Oy! I smell discount all over this!

    If we can gather enough people we may be able to force Bill into representing everyone and once he reaches the same breaking point above which we hover, we’ll have him right where we want him!

    Now uh John, where did we want Bill again…?

    Merry New Year to you sir and thanks so very much for stopping by, Mr. Chadwick.

  6. Hooray Barry you’re back. 8) Hang on a minute though, I’m in a very vulnerable state of mind at the moment,(I haven’t had a drink for 5 days), and I read MOST of those lyrics, but sorry I couldn’t continue. I didn’t fancy living in that world. I’m going to put ‘Here Comes the Sun’ and ‘Because’ on now. Actually I will put the whole of Abbey Road on, saves time. I need cheering up.

    Great to have you back Barry. I missed you.
