Guest Post, Now With More Bastard

Hey guys, this isn't really the post I wanted to do, but dammit I'm not going to be able to churn that one out. I planned this huge emotional sobfest. For now though I'm just going to have to be lazy and rely on a guest post. I think I have maybe one or two others hidden away besides this one, but for now this is the one I'm going to use. I still appreciate submissions for guest posts too guys. The whole stuff that's killing my posts was what I was going to explain today, and while I've already nearly managed to do it, I have to stop, and hand the reins over to That Bastard From Bellingham. Bastard, if you read this, I'm sorry it took so long. Thank you for lending me some of your work to post. So, for now, enjoy the offerings from The Bastard;

It Was A Glorious Evening

A potters' wheel
her shadow splayed out on the grass
dirty honey gold a fan
her breasts, pillows
enticing and joyful
for the delight of her
a fond memory
in these days of grey
----


And the bearded lady
Practices what she preaches
For your money
She'll work for your pay

And hidden in the shadows
That clown does his thing
Twisting balloons
Twisted fantasies

Oh, it's there
A night time brigade
A real horrorshow
A creature feature

to last the ages

but don't you worry
about life's little problems
this jaded mystery
don't look away

just drown your misery

the sad little men
come tumbling out of clown cars
they're running again
with their floppy shoes

and don't question why
the magician's tricks are obvious
the shadows on the ground
show the assistants wires

what you might lose
if you point it out
might be greater for what it's worth
then what you may find out

don't cheapen your innocence
don't dare to let go
just keep on laughing
at the horrorshow

presented for you

Don't look away
Don't think in vain
Don't try the tricks
You'll lose again

and it's there
A night time brigade
A real horrorshow
A creature feature

to last the ages

but don't you worry
about life's little problems
this jaded mystery
don't look away

just drown out your misery

somethin' to ease the pain
somethin' to ease the pain
of transition
come again

somethin' to ease the pain
emotions you can't restrain
of transition
revel 
revel
in the pain

A Feel Good Punk Song

Project: No Rhymes, "A Night of Complete Horrorshow"

You cannot prove that you are real
You can't know just what I feel
You lack definite perspective
Go ahead and define the prescription

(drop an octave)
It's economical
It's all political
The truth that they try to hide
The shackles are in your mind

You forget your bravery
You forget you're the missing link
Nevermind their messages
Just stayed glued to your televisions

(chorus)

All your favorite tunes
All your favorite shows
Mass produced fashions
Acceptable by the

CORPORATE MEDIA SHIIIIIILLS

All your favorite songs
All your faved beliefs
Mass produced fascism
Acceptable by the

CORPORATE MORAL WATCHDOOOOGS

(bridge)

You disapprove of reality
You plug up your ears and scream
Logic and reason mean nothing
You'd rather be safe in your beliefs

(drop an octave)
Comfort and safety in your dreams
All is not as what it seems
Vapid attention is what you seek
Your mistakes your children will have to reap

You cannot prove that you are real
You can't know just what I feel
You lack definite perspective
Go ahead and define the prescription

(chorus)

All your favorite tunes
All your favorite shows
Mass produced fashions
Acceptable by the

CORPORATE MEDIA SHIIIIIILLS

All your favorite songs
All your faved beliefs
Mass produced fascism
Acceptable by the

CORPORATE MORAL WATCHDOOOOGS

  3. I could make a really shitty pun now, but I'll refrain from that. May need it later on.
    But looks like you got yourself some pretty strong competition here, Mark. Stay on your toes! ;D

  4. That Feel Good Punk Song kinda has an Elvis Costello vibe to it.

    1. Funny story: one of the songs I've written up is about clown murderers. Naturally from the A Night of Complete Horrorshow concept album.

      Nothin' but a hook and a bunch of descriptive stanzas about a clown, a butcher knife, the dark alleyways of a city.

      LOL clowns.

  8. I'm apologizing to everyone for being late. Blogger's glitch kept me from commenting until about an hour ago and I'm catching up.

    That is some really nice verse there Bastard. It shows a range of talent across a broad spectrum of the human condition. Well done.

  9. A very fine piece provided by That Bastard! I jammed out thrice to the music in my head in conjunction with these lyrics. I am the emo that is the world today, so I'll post that.

  10. Thanks everyone, and definitely thank you Mark!

    By all means, shout-outs all around and what-not. Hell, Mark - expect a shout out from The Hooligans over at KAOS: Chaos Party Radio and on my own The Pen Is My Sword.

    Ain't got nothin' but love for The Rambling Person.

  13. Let me tell you, it's difficult as all hell to not be a slave to corporations. All my clothes are from thrift stores, and my grocery bill is sky high. When I am hungry, eating fast food fries is tempting, but I just can't do it.

  14. Reall like 'and then you realised' good stuff!
