...and now back to our programming.



My, oh my... it's Conflict playing their 'hit' song, "The Serenade Is Dead" at the Fenders Ballroom in Long Beach, California back in 1985. Down here is the lyrics; fuckin' sing along now or fuckin' die.

The Serenade Is Dead (January 1984)
She wakes up in the morning; the sun is shining in her face
She turns her head around; she shares the blanket on which the love embraced
She looks out of the window; it's a lovely day outside
She tells herself that things are fine, he pulls the sheets to cover his eyes
The essence of the fresh air, that garden held the love affair
Thinking back their minds are torn in muddle and confusion
So far away another sits, who tries to make the best of it
He don't know quite what's hit him, it's another love illusion
He gazes in his empty room eyes fixed upon her picture
The loneliness, dejectedness, God how the fuck he's missed her
His eyes turn turn to the window, the military roar by
He wonders how much hatred could evolve out of the sky
What God had done for peace on earth, what man destroyed from day of birth
They are concerned with feelings; they're just ashamed to cry
And one mans plan to push the button makes other sacrifice
The serenade is dead and now the only question's why?
Why when we are young, we're told it's right to love
Told it's human nature and that comes from God above
As time moves on we realise that we all look from the pit
While a plan hangs above us, to keep us in the shit
Because the minute we are born, we're told what's right and wrong
Raised with certain morals, never mentioned in their songs
As we grow up, we find out that the paths been neatly set
In a world of such destruction, we only can regret
Regret that is the word of it, as we look for our way out of it
Why can't they understand we don't want any part of it?
The pain they create everyday, that just ain't gonna go away
We've got to stick together, but still you're asking why?
The system stands strong, as our movement starts to crumble
The pressure we once held, has just turned into a rumble
They've got us where they want us, and you all just accept that
Well don't you think its time; we started to hit back
They are the enemy; they want a rope around your neck
And if they will go that far, then what the fuck is next?
Forget the revolution, we've heard it all before
Heard all of the promises of nineteen-eighty-four
Its an impossible task, "oh yes", it stands before us all
Well maybe you'll believe it when your back's against the wall.

Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada.

Oi Crescenet,
Basically only English or Malay language can be read by this blog reader. Better use those two languages whenever you post something here; be it usual comment or spam like this. By the way, I've translated your words, it says:

"Oi, I found this blog for google is well and interesting. Surely, I like this entry. I would like to tell you about The CresceNet. The CresceNet is a dial supplier of InterNet that remunerates its users for the hardwired time. Accurately we’re paying you to connect. The supplier paid 20 cents for the moment of connection dialed with local linking for more than 2100 cities of Brazil. The CresceNet has a connection accelerator that leaves its faster connection up to 10 times. Who uses broadband can also profit, which is enough to register in the CresceNet. It is possible to pay the ADSL with the money by just one dial. Bla… bla… bla… (I’m not sure what it means). If you want to link to Cresce.Net (www.provedorcrescenet.com) in this blog, I’d be very thankful. If it’s possible, please add the CresceNet (www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blog. Thank you. Goodbye friend."

Last but not least, thanks to my Portuguese language teacher. Finally I found your class useful. :)
