Renegades of Funk

For everyone there is always one song which makes you wanna stand up and say FUCK YOU to anyone and anything that pisses you off. Right now, no other song inspires me more Renegades of Funk. I mean both the version. The original version by Afrika Bambaataa & Soulsonic Force as well as Rage Against the Machine version.

It does speak about revolution and bring changes but there are songs which are more revolutionary than this but the feel of this song to me is pure revolution. The moment i press the play bottom, I feel like standing up and showing the middle finger to my boss, the government, literally anyone above me. Don't worry, am not going to start a revolution in my work place, right now I need money more than a revolution.

If you have never heard this song... give it a shot... am sure you will love it, if you are a rebel at heart.








BTW, here is the lyrics of the song:

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop this now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop this now

Renegades of this atomic age
This atomic age for renegades
Renegades of this atomic age
This atomic age for renegades

Prehistoric ages and the days of ancient Greece
On down through the Middle Ages
When the earth kept going through changes
There's a business going on, cars continue to change
Nothing stays the same, there were always renegades
Like Chief Sitting Bull, Tom Payne
Like Martin Luther King, Malcom X
They were renegades of the atomic age
So many renegades

Hand clap, hand clap, the renegades

From a different solar system many many galaxies away
We are the force of another creation
A new musical revelation
And we're on this musical message to help the others listen
Improve momentum and seek the electonic chance
Like astrology
Like technology
Like God's Creation
Like the Zulu station
Like to the nation
Like destroy all nations
Like militants
Like down in sand
Like through changes ,nothing stays the same
Oh renegades

Now renegades are people with their own philosophy
They change the course of history
Everyday people like you and me
You know they have their secret notions
And time is endless motion
All people of the moderate ages here in this twentieth century
You have to keep up in time with the moderate time
A state of mind and a sense of pride
A renegade, yes a renegade
Of this time and age
So many renegades
Who's that
Now hand clap
The renegades

We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
Poppin', sockin', rockin' with a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
You know we're poppin', sockin', with a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
Poppin', sockin', rockin' with a side of hip-hop
Because where we're goin' there ain't no stoppin'
(Repeat)

We're teachers of the funk
And not of empty popping
We're blessed with the Force and the sight of
electronics
With the bass, and the treble
The horns and our vocals
You know everytime we pop into the beat we get fresh

There was a time when our music
Was something called the Bay Street beat
People would gather from all around
To get down on the Bay sound
You had to be a renegade those days
To take a man on the dance floor
Like Afrika Bambattaa and the Soulsonic Force
We're talking about Mr. B, Pow Wow, G-L-O-B-E
Was a renegade, yes, a renegade of the atomic age
So many renegades
What's that
It's a hand clap
The renegade

Just jam sucker
Say jam sucker
Say groove, sucker
Say groove, sucker
Say dance, sucker
Say dance, sucker
Now move, sucker
Now move, sucker

Everybody say
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of funk

Shake that thing
That makes me swing
I got some great
He's a renegade of funk
Mr. Biggs
He's a renegade of funk
Bambaataa
He's a renegade of funk
Pow Wow
He's a renegade of funk
And MC Globe

India vs Pakistan! Who Will Enter the Finals

Even though I try to remain indifferent towards cricket but its almost impossible to stay away from it especially like the match that's going to happen tomorrow. Yeah, the Cricket World Cup Semi-final march between India vs Pakistan. You turn on the TV, its full of it. Indian Media need to expand their horizon. The news is full of this, can't they cover something else like the Radiation problem Japan is facing. I believe that is equally important. Every channel is drawing out their wild prediction about the game.. Some predicting how India will beat Pakistan, while some crying why Indian teams will not win... Its a mad world out there right at the moment!

Am not here to rant. I won't do any ranting today. Instead I should be happy, because of this match I can doze off in that dark room where they screen the match in my office. The noise is a bit disturbing but everyone has to adjust to certain things. Plus, rumors had it that, my office administration is going to serve light snacks and drinks.

Oh yeah.. my view about the match.. Well, since am not much of a cricket person so I guess ' may the best team win'....

Cricket is my Life . . . . . . . . . . NOT!

Cricket is my life; in fact it’s my religion. I can’t imagine life without this beautiful game called ‘CRICKET’. Witnessing India crashed Australia was even better than having a three-way with two super hot Victoria Secrets Models. India’s next match is on Wednesday with Pakistan. For this match am fasting till Wednesday so that the gods will favor India in defeating Pakistan.

I hope you guy’s didn’t buy that story because am not much of a sports person. The only sports I am into is Women Wrestling. But the above lines apply to so many cricket fans here in India. But the three-way thing is way too much for any Indian Cricket Fan. In fact most will even give up Cricket for just an experience like that.

Honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I am so much looking forward to India Vs. Pakistan Match because I’ll have another day to waste. Yeah, we get to watch the match on big screen here in my office. Yesterday I spend the whole day napping and Am planning to do so this coming Wednesday……

Yeah i took the title from the Movie "Borat'..... Very Nice

Do you have One?

Do your have that kind of person in your friend circle who can't stop bitching about people... Well I have one and she scares the living shit out of me...

My friend circle is very simple. We don't have any formalities and we usually do whatever we want to, until that hot July evening when my roommate started going out with this girl. During the initial stage we all thought that she was pretty cool. But slowly and slowly she start showing her true self. Her bitching side and trust me, it sucks. She bitched about everything and everyone she knew. From her roommate to her ex-boyfriend, her college mate and so on and on.. and on..

Why are we scared?.. well if she can bitch about anyone, am pretty sure she can bitch about us and everything that we do.. Trust me, there are tons of things that I don't want her to know but how can i hide it forever. She stays in my place 24*7 and how long can I pretend or avoid such things. That's not the only thing.. My friend who was a wild child is now tamed. Now he even needs to take permission from her to drink a beer, smoke a joint or to attend a metal show.

Since this guy is way too much into this girl, now we cant even tell him to break up, plus we don't even want them to break up... Because if they break up, we are pretty sure that this girl won't mind bitching about every in-perfection that our friend circle.

We came up with this solution to deal with her. For one whole month we will all be in our best... After that we will tell our dear buddy to dump her. If he can't, I guess we will have to find another apartment without him...

If you have a better idea, let me know....
