I Mus say that from a spiritiually drunk pinot of view at 4am in the morning
that ws very well siad.:))))
Alot of people dont agree with our own musical teatses and that everytone
has the own ideas and meaning in life, although it would be an ideal world
if everyone loved what we loved!!!!

I hjave this same ol argument with friends all the tiem who reckon that U2
are shite. GHow i would love to prove them wrong and convert them but we
must accept who we are are what we believe in.

Maybe im lookin for the sound that s gonna drown out my world but its
exactly that. My World.

Anyways i need sleep cause i got a headache and the taste of stale smoke in
my mouth.


Sleepin in my own bed tonight!!!!!
