  • I've a new respect for Nickelback

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5AhkCoamAo

    My son brought this to my attention.

    Needless to say I am rather proud of him for why he did it.

    Their song is worthy of praise.

    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

    The fact the link leads to a Nickelback song prevents me from even clicking on it...
    “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

      Not a bad tune...

      And the message I take from it is that one individual really can change the world.

      It's hard to really believe that at times but it is true. World events are the result of human actions afterall...so if someone else can influence world events...why not you?

      A pretty good message.

        As I told my son, a person can be a Hitler or a Mother Teresa. It all depends on how you want to be remembered.

        You can be a force of change, but it's usually better to be a change for the better.

        I might buy him one of their albums just as a way of supporting a group that can tell the difference.

        I might not really care for their music, but I care about groups that can be reponsible.

            Very good, don't see too many bands these days that care,
            except for selling more albums. Every now and then you get a band
            that makes a difference.

              I just so hate it when a band that wants to make a comment, for whatever reason, can't stop swearing and screaming loudly or screamingly loudly and swearing just for a bit, so they can be taken seriously in the first place.

              That's why I have so much trouble with rap. It's just sounds too hate filled. And I won't allow hateful music in my home.

              I've listened to a lot of songs over the years, and some musicians truely KNOW the power of their craft and how to use it to do good. It's not just a tool to spread an opinion, it should be used to spread something useful, that helps.

              Rush has a powerful song called Nobody's hero. In a time when it seems like it's only a political cause, occasionally we need to remember, people are people, regardless of how they were born.

              Words by Neil Peart, Music by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

              I knew he was different, in his sexuality
              I went to his parties, as a straight minority
              It never seemed a threat to my masculinity
              He only introduced me to a wider reality

              As the years went by, we drifted apart
              When I heard that he was gone
              I felt a shadow cross my heart
              But he's nobody's ---

              Hero --- saves a drowning child
              Cures a wasting disease
              Hero --- lands the crippled airplane
              Solves great mysteries

              Hero --- not the handsome actor
              Who plays a hero's role
              Hero --- not the glamor girl
              Who'd love to sell her soul
              If anybody's buying
              NOBODY'S HERO

              I didn't know the girl, but I knew her family
              All their lives were shattered
              in a nightmare of brutality
              They try to carry on, try to bear the agony
              Try to hold some faith
              in the goodness of humanity

              As the years went by, we drifted apart
              When I heard that she was gone
              I felt a shadow cross my heart
              But she's nobody's ---

              Hero --- the voice of reason
              Against the howling mob
              Hero --- the pride of purpose
              In the unrewarding job

              Hero --- not the champion player
              Who plays the perfect game
              Not the glamor boy
              Who loves to sell his name
              Everybody's buying
              NOBODY'S HERO

              As the years went by, we drifted apart
              When I heard that you were gone
              I felt a shadow cross my heart

              Hero

              I know a few "ordinary" people that just happen to be different in that one way. Some I have known for decades.

              Rush has released countless songs since the 70s, often with incredible messages.

                  I am not religious in that I hate religion.

                  That said, I have experienced inexplicable events in my life that lack explanation.

                  When I left the army I was extremely upset, and felt like my life had crashed and burned. I met someone on the jounry back home though, that had a momentary impact on my life. It was just a chance encounter, but it made me feel like everything would be ok.

                  I believe life is so much more than we can view with just our normal 5 senses. There is more to reality than we will ever really fully grasp. Maybe that's why life is precious.

                  You have to care, you never know when it might be the difference.
