Ostensibly a photoblog, but also a little bit of me in everything I do …

**** You!

I used to hate Lilly Allen’s music … but when I listened to her this morning … it all suddenly made sense … and I understood why she wrote it.

Yes, I know that the original was directed by her at George Bush, but  it also says what a lot of us are too afraid to say to those who hurt and oppress us on a daily basis. It’s about letting go and taking your life back!

I know I’ll probably catch some flack for this post, but seriously … I am so tired of self indulgent, arrogant people who think the world revolves around them … so to those of you who think you are “the bomb” – wake up and smell the coffee! Those of you who really know me and know what I am about will know that this is not directed at you.

**** You!

Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we’re so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor

So you say
It’s not okay to be gay
Well I think you’re just evil
You’re just some racist who can’t tie my laces
Your point of view is medieval

**** you
**** you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

**** you
**** you very, very much
Cause your words don’t translate
And it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

Do you get
Do you get a little kick out of being slow minded?
You want to be like your father
It’s approval you’re after
Well that’s not how you find it

Do you
Do you really enjoy living a life that’s so hateful?
Cause there’s a hole where your soul should be
Your losing control of it and it’s really distasteful

**** you
**** you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

**** you
**** you very, very much
Cause your words don’t translate and it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

**** you, **** you, **** you,
**** you, **** you, **** you,
**** you

You say, you think we need to go to war
Well you’re already in one,
Cause its people like you
That need to get slew
No one wants your opinion

**** you
**** you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don’t stay in touch

**** you
**** you very, very much
Cause your words don’t translate and it’s getting quite late
So please don’t stay in touch

**** you, **** you, **** you
**** you, **** you, **** you

Single by Lily Allen
from the album It’s Not Me, It’s You

Lake Farm Lake during 2011 courtesy of FireFly … and Lake Farm and surrounds as they are now …

 

Some may find this a little disturbing, so be warned … Interesting results nonetheless.

Spent a couple of hours out in the rain with a brolly yesterday … and was quite pleased with the final results. Enjoy!

Into the Fire

Of course, no braai on a cold winter’s day would be complete without a fire to stand around afterwards, to reflect, chat and and fend off the chill …
