"Walking On Broken Glass"
You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew
But I don't care for sugar honey if I can't have you
Since you've abandoned me
My whole life has crashed
Won't you pick the pieces up
'cause it feels just like I'm walking on broken glass
Walking on walking on broken glass
The sun's still shining in the big blue sky
But it don't mean nothing to me
Oh let the rain come down
Let the wind blow through me
I'm living in an empty room
With all the windows smashed
And I've got so little left to lose
That it feels just like I'm walking on broken glass
Walking on walking on broken glass
And if you're trying to cut me down
You know that I might bleed
Cause if you're trying to cut me down
I know that you'll succeed
And if you want to hurt me
There's nothing left to fear
Cause if you want to hurt me
You're doing really well my dear
Now everyone of us was made to suffer
Everyone of us was made to weep
But we've been hurting one another
And now the pain has cut too deep...
So take me from the wreckage
Save me from the blast
Lift me up and take me back
Don't let me keep on walking...
Walking on broken glass.

"One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives."
- Euripides, Greek playwrite
"Never shall i forget the days i spent with you . continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours."
-Ludwig Van Beethoven
This is from Wikipdia
During the time of the Roman Empire, Cicero had his own beliefs on friendship. Cicero believed that in order to have a true friendship with someone there must be all honesty and truth. If there isn’t, then this isn’t a true friendship. In that case, friends must be one hundred percent honest with each other and put one hundred percent of their trust in the other person. Cicero also believed that for people to be friends with another person, they must do things without the expectation that their friend will have to repay them. He also believes that if a friend is about to do something wrong, and something that goes against your morals, you shouldn’t compromise your morals. You must explain why what they are going to do is wrong, and help them to see what the right thing to do is, because Cicero believes that ignorance is the cause of evil. Finally the last thing that Cicero believed was that the reason that a friendship comes to an end is because one person in that friendship has become bad." (On Friendship, Cicero)
"Keep your friendships in repair."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Misfortune shows those who are not really friends."
In the Western world, intimate physical contact has been sexualized in the public mind over the last one hundred years and is considered almost taboo in friendship, especially between two males. However, stylized hugging or kissing may be considered acceptable, depending on the context (see, for example, the kiss the tramp gives the kid in The Kid). In Spain and other Mediterranean countries men may embrace each other in public and kiss each other on the cheek. This is not limited solely to older generations but rather is present throughout all generations. In young children throughout the modern western world, friendship, usually of a homosocial nature, typically exhibits elements of a closeness and intimacy suppressed later in life in order to conform to societal standards.
"It is more shameful to distrust one's friends than to be deceived by them."
- Duc de la Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)
"A true friend stabs you in the front."
- Oscar Wilde
The number and quality of friendships for the average American has been declining since at least 1985, according to a 2006 study. The study states that 25% of Americans have no close confidants, and that the average total number of confidants per person has dropped to 2.
In recent times, some thinkers have postulated that modern friendships have lost the force and importance that they had in antiquity. C. S. Lewis for example, in his The Four Loves, writes:
"To the Ancients, Friendship seemed the happiest and most fully human of all loves; the crown of life and the school of virtue. The modern world, in comparison, ignores it. We admit of course that besides a wife and family a man needs a few 'friends'. But the very tone of the admission, and the sort of acquaintanceships which those who make it would describe as 'friendships', show clearly that what they are talking about has very little to do with that Philia which Aristotle classified among the virtues or that Amicitia on which Cicero wrote a book."
"True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation."
- George Washington,
"Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after."
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
people who are aware of how retarded you are and still manage to be seen in public with you. people who make you laugh till you pee your pants. people who cry for you when one of your special items disappear. when you dont have enough money to get a ice cream, they chip in. knows all of your internet passwords. who would never make you cry just to be mean.
"The friendship that can cease has never been real."
- Saint Jerome
My Favorite Quote:
"There is no friendship between men that has not an element of sexuality in it, however little accentuated it may be in the nature of the friendship, and however painful the idea of the sexual element would be. But it is enough to remember that there can be no friendship unless there has been some attraction to draw the men together. Much of the affection, protection, and nepotism between men is due to the presence of unsuspected sexual compatibility." (Sex and Character, 1903)
Here is a quote.. and it's so true..
"If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear pain or loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss much greater..."
For all of you who fear that a relationship wont work out because you're afraid of things happening down the road that could be negative, your life will be EMPTY. Yeah you can say, "well I have friends" while that is true, there is this ONE human nature that needs satisfying, love.
We need someone to love us and someone to love. If I were to love someone and that person becomes scared and runs away because of a fear of pain and loss happening, all I can do is be there and support them. There are not a lot of people who holds the patience to deal with those who live in fear of broken relationships.
I have friends who are insecure in their relationships and I tell them, "communication is key" If you don't communicate your fears or insecurities with those you love, how is it to work? Your love one needs to understand where you come from and how to help you within the relationship. Are they there to fix you? Of course not. They, however, will be there to be your number one support.
I came from a verbal and physical abusive relationship that did not end well. I do have my fears but I have learned that if you put yourself out there, it only builds the love between two people stronger. The person I love will understand where I come from and how to help me when I am in a time of need and vice versa.
Remember, if you are one who believes you are not relationship material, believe it or not, you are. You just need to find yourself and bring yourself to your lover's attention. Gain strength through him or her and through your friends.
If you deny love that is given to you, you will most likely never find love at all. Don't fear the pain or loss but yet conquer them by putting yourself out there by receiving support from those you love.
You cannot go on living an empty life. Embrace what you have and cherish it.
Keep it real,
Tuesday, May 06, 2008
The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth. Your goal is to find objects of attention that let your cork raise.

As most of you May know, today is Cinco de Mayo. What some of you May be mistaken about is why it's celebrated. Cinco de Mayo has absolutely NOTHING to do with Mexican Independence. (For the record, that's in September and IS NOT Labor Day, though the pun/irony should not be lost on such.) If you would like to know the whole story, check out: Cinco History.
In honor of the occasion, here's a nice little Piñata Blooper Reel. Oh the joys of beating something with a bat and then frolicking in whatever falls out. Oh wait, I think that was the Rob Zombie movie i watched last night . . . . .
This next clip is down right hateful and mean-spirited . . . . . . which is probably why I love it soooooo much. By far one of my favorite videos of all time, and only because it REALLY is a great "prank". If you don't believe me, watch: Beans Don't Burn On The Deck. Call it racist if you want, but i definitely call it funny.
Of course, no holiday would be complete without it's very own holiday blockbuster. In this instance, here's the trailer to: "300 . . . . and Counting". Don't look at me. I laughed my ass off a second time once I realized that a Latina comedy troupe had done the video. Fantastic.
And finally . . . . . with no further ado . . . . Dancing Mexican Midgets. Really. (i've always said you can find anything on the Internet.)
