Adore, Smashing Pumpkins’ Second Best

Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, is of course the best album the Smashing Pumpkins ever had.

Adore is the second best.

Adore is comparable to Mellon Collie as far as musicality is concerned.  The only thing that sets the two albums apart is that there are some songs in Mellon Collie that showcase the band’s other equally competitive forte- the upbeat almost-hard rock songs.

Adore might be the best for those audience who prefer gothic, dark and emotional rock.  Adore would be best appreciated by hopelessly romantics and sentimental fools.

Adore, the album is composed of sixteen (16) tracks.  However, there are seventeen (17) cuts in a Japanese version.

***

To Shiela is the first song.  To Shiela sets the perfect listening decorum and gives the listeners hints of what the album has in store for them.

Enjoy the video and savour the lyrics only the pumpkins can deliver.

1.  To Shiela

To Shiela

Twilight fades
Through blistered avalon
The sky’s cruel torch
On aching autobahn
Into the uncertain divine
We scream into the last divide

You make me real
You make me real
Strong as i feel
You make me real

Sheila rides on crashing nightingale
Intake eyes leave passing vapor trails
With blushing brilliance alive
Because it’s time to arrive

You make me real
You make me real
Strong as i feel
You make me real

Lately I just can’t seem to believe
Discard my friends to change the scenery
It meant the world to hold a bruising faith
But now it’s just a matter of grace

A summer storm graces all of me
Highway warm sing silent poetry
I could bring you the light
And take you home into the night

You make me real
Lately I just can’t seem to believe
You make me real
Discard my friends to change the scenery
Strong as i feel
It meant the world to hold a bruising faith
You make me real
But now it’s just a matter of grace

2.  Ava Adore

Ava Adore

It’s you that I adore
You will always be my whore
You’ll be a mother to my child
And a child to my heart
We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl
You’re the beauty in my world
Without you there aren’t reasons left to find

And I’ll pull your crooked teeth
You’ll be perfect just like me
You’ll be a lover in my bed
And a gun to my head
We must never be apart
We must never be apart

Lovely girl
You’re the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I’ve left to die
Drinking mercury
To the mystery of all that you should ever leave behind
In time

In you I see dirty
In you I count stars
In you I feel so pretty
In you I taste god
In you I feel so hungry
In you I crash cars
We must never be apart

Drinking mercury
To the mystery of all that you should ever seek to find
Lovely girl
You’re the murder in my world
Dressing coffins for the souls I’ve left behind
In time
We must never be apart

And you’ll always be my whore
Cause you’re the one that I adore
And I’ll pull your crooked teeth
You’ll be perfect just like me
In you I feel so dirty in you I crash cars
In you I feel so pretty in you I taste god
We must never be apart

3.  Perfect

Perfect

I know we’re just like old friends
We just can’t pretend
That lovers make amends
We are reasons so unreal
We can’t help but feel that something has been lost

But please you know you’re just like me
Next time I promise we’ll be
Perfect
Perfect
Perfect strangers down the line
Lovers out of time
Memories unwind

So far I still know who you are
But now I wonder who I was…

Angel, you know it’s not the end
We’ll always be good friends
The letters have been sent on

So please, you always were so free
You’ll see, I promise we’ll be
Perfect
Perfect strangers when we meet
Strangers on the street
Lovers while we sleep

Perfect
You know this has to be
We always we’re so free
We promised that we’d be
Perfect

4.  Daphne Descends

Daphne Descends

with the sugar sickness
you spy the kidnap kid
who kids you to oblivion
it’s the perfect hassle
for the perfumed kiss
he makes you miss him more than home

you love him
you love him more than this
you love him and you cannot, you can’t resist
you love him
you love him for yourself
you love him and no one, no one else

past sidewalk ashes
a last lovers arc
you come apart to intertwine
it was all so simple
as you watched him move
across the darkness in your room

you love him
you love him for youself
you love him and no one, no one else

and the winding vines
the pretty boys dive
and thru the pinhole stars
into the shadow mind
you will lose him then
on some gentle dawn
this boy is here and gone

you love him
you love him for yourself
you love him and no one, no one else
you love him
you love him more than this
you love him and you cannot, you can’t resist

you love him…

5.  Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

 Mother I’m tired

Come surrender my son
Time has ravaged on my soul
No plans to leave but still I go

Fallin’ with the leaves
Fallin’ out of sleep
To the last goodbyes
Who cares why?

Mother I’ve tried
Wasting my life
I haven’t given up, I lie
To make you so proud in my eyes

Fallin’ out of sleep
Crawlin’ over me
To the last goodbyes
Who cares why?

Tuesdays come and gone
Restless i still drive
Try to leave it all behind

Fallin’, fallin’ out of sleep
Fallin’, fallin’ with the leaves
I go crawlin’, crawlin’ over me

Once upon a time in my life…
I went falling…

Mother I hope you know
That I miss you so
Time has ravaged on my soul
To wipe a mothers tears grown cold

6.  Tear

 Tear

the lights came on fast
lost in motorcrash
gone in a flash unreal
but you knew all along
you laugh the light
I sing the songs
to watch you numb

I saw you there
you were on your way
you held the rain
and for the first time
heaven seemed insane
cause heaven is to blame
for taking you away

do you know the way that I can?
do you know the way that I can’t lose?
do you know the things that I can?
do you know the things that I can do?

where is your heart? where is your heart gone to?
tear me apart
tear me apart from you
you laugh the light I cry the wound
in gray afternoons

I saw you there
you were on your way
you kissed me cold
and for the first time
heaven seemed insane
for taking you away
cause heaven is to blame
for taking you away

the lights came to pass
dead opera motorcrash
gone in a flash unreal
in nitrous overcast

do you know the way that I can?
do you know the way that I can’t choose?
do you know the things that I can?
do you know the things that I can’t lose?

tear me apart
tear me apart from you
where is your heart?
where has your heart run to?

7.  Crestfallen

Crestfallen

Who am I to need you when I’m down
Where are you when I need you around
Your life is not your own

And all I ask you
Is for another chance
Another way around you
To live by circumstance, once again

Who am I to need you now
To ask you why to tell you no
To deserve your love and sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me

And you may go, but I know you won’t leave
Too many years built into memories
Your life is not your own
Who am I to need you now
To ask you why to tell you no
To deserve your love and sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me

Who am I to you?
Along the way
I lost my faith

And as you were, you’ll be again
To mold like clay, to break like dirt
To tear me uo in your sympathy
You were never meant to belong to me
You were never meant to belong to me
You were never meant to belong to me

Who am I?

8.  Apples + Oranjes

 Apples + Oranges

What if the sun refused to shine?
What if the clouds refused to rain?
What if the wind refused to blow?
What if the seas refused to wave?
What if the world refused its turn?
What if the stars would hesitate?

What if what is isn’t true?
What are you going to do?
What if what is isn’t you?
Does that mean you’ve got to lose?
Digging for the feel of something new

What if the silence let you dream?
What if the air could let you breathe?
What if the words would bring you here?
What if this sound could bring you peace?

What if what is isn’t true?
What are you going to do?
Digging for the feel of something new
What if what is isn’t you?
Does that mean you’ve got to lose?

It came from your thoughts, your dreams and visions
Ripped up from your weeks and indecisions

What if the sun refused to shine?
What if the clouds refused to rain?
What if the world refused to turn?
What if the clocks would hesitate?

What if what is isn’t true?
What are you going to do?
What if what is isn’t you?
Does that mean you’ve got to lose?
Digging for the feel of something new

Does that mean you’ve got to choose
The feel of something new?
Does that mean you’ve got to lose
The thoughts you cannot lose?
What are you going to do?

9.  Pug

Pug

Kiss and kill me sweetly

Come and drive me home

Drag the miles in me

I am yours alone

Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself into, into, into you
Desire me so deeply

Drain and kick me hard

Whisper secrets for me

Try to go too far
Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself into, into, into

Please don’t change

Please don’t change at all

Bring your rain

Bring your rain to fall
Inside where it’s warm

Wrap myself in you

Outside where I’m torn

Fight myself into, into, into you
Come and kiss me sweetly

Ride the telephone

Drag the miles to me

I am yours alone

Yours alone, yours alone

On the telephone

Yours alone

Looking for a kiss

Kiss Yours alone

10.  The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete

The Tale of Dusty and Pistol Pete

Dusty screams, through doors and imaginary floors
“Why can’t you miss me?”
Pistol Pete removes the final breaths from
her unkind and she is shaken
What does this mean in love or in peace?
With you lying next to me
So faithless serene
And she calls to him

Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you
Far out beneath the sorrow clouds
Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you
Let them cry out through your rusted scars

Alone he roams inside the ordinary
catacombs of her waiting
With raven hands she steals and
staggers towards her man
Still scorned by his demon

Because he’s undone
Become the language of
Disaster and love, vengeance and dust
And she calls to him

Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you
Far out beneath the sorrow clouds
Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you
Let them cry out through your rusted scars

Dusty screams, through doors and imaginary scenes
Of hurt and teardrop
As he holds her down, in the cold lonely winds
Together again, her inside him
And she calls to him

Let the waste cross the ancient trails to you
Far out beneath the sorrow clouds
Let them taste the bitter lost mistake of you
Let them cry out through your rusted scars

11.  Annie- Dog

Annie-Dog
Amphetamine annie-dog
Has her leash and a face
Her velvet spleen her
shackle spine
Her dimond curse
It comes with mineA vessel she
For violent I
Confession arms a wake
Mine, mine you were always mine
Possessed by my taste

And below the angel dog
Combs her hair and
sings her psalms
The bombs go off
She doesn’t notice
It all goes wrong
She sets things tragic
She is venus
She is mars
she’s electric
And the struggle of

Upon my face we leave no trace
But in her stomach mercury aged

She holds the blood
She carves the knives
She digs the wires in our babies

Amphetamine annie-dog
Pulls her trash
And her stories
From place to place

And bed to bed
Gives of herself and
the magnet headAnother floor another ceiling
Counting stairs with
double meanings

Is it wrong to be
swallowed whole
To disappear in her
To give her the priceless peace
Of giving up control

We tumble out into the streets
And annie-dog she
drags her leash
Pretty face
Ugly mouth
Bitter bred and so released

And by the no
And by the yes
Annie goes if you couldn’t guess

A simple man
A sycophant
Her elephant with the
laughing call
She wants clean sheets
And fresh flowers
And dental shots
And the hong kong glue

Amphetamine annie-dog
Has her leash and a face

12.  Shame

Shame

you’re gonna walk on home
you’re gonna walk alone
you’re gonna see this through
don’t let them get to you

shame

love is good and love is kind
love is drunk and love is blind
love is good and love is mine
love is drunk all the time

shame

you’re gonna walk on home
you’re gonna walk alone
you’re gonna walk so far
you’re gonna wonder who you are

shame

love is good and love is kind
love is good and love is blind
love is good and love is mine
love is good all the time

hello goodbye, you know you made us cry…

13.  Behold the Nightmare

Behold the Nightmare

I faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors’ quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
Appease you
The wind blows, and I know

I can’t go on
Digging roses from your grave
To linger on
Beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep
And the whirlpools sleep
You’ll find me
The coarse tide reflects sky

And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on

Where I fear is lost here
The wind blows, and I know

All you have to do is run away
And steal yourself from me
Become a mystery to gaze into
You’re so cruel in all you do
But still I believe, I believe in you

So may you come with your own knives
You’ll never take me alive
With all the force of what is true
Is there nothing I can do?

I can’t go on
Digging roses from your grave
To linger on
Beyond the beyond
Where the willows weep
And the whirlpools sleep
You’ll find me

And the night mare rides on
And the night mare rides on
With a December black psalm
And the night mare rides on

I’ve faced the fathoms in your deep
Withstood the suitors’ quiet siege
Pulled down the heavens just to please you
To hold the flower I can’t keep

14.  For Martha

For Martha

Whenever I run

Whenever I run to you lost one

It’s never done
Just hanging on

Just past has let me be
Returning as if dream
Shattered as belief

If you have to go don’t say goodbye
If you have to go don’t you cry
If you have to go I will get by
Someday I’ll follow
you and see you on the
other side

But for the grace of love
I’d will the meaning of
Heaven from above
Your picture out of time
Left aching in my mind
Shadows kept alive

If you have to go don’t say goodbye
If you have to go don’t you cry
If you have to go I will get by
I will follow you and see
you on the other side

But for the grace of love
I’d will the meaning of
Heaven from above

Long horses we are born
Creatures more than torn
Mourning our way home

15.  Blank Page

Blank Page

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed, I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed, drove the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
Stop sign told me stay at home
Told me you were not alone

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to hurt anyone
In bed, I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest

You haven’t changed…
You’re still the same
May you rise as you fall

You were easy, you are forgotten
You are the ways of my mistakes

I catch the rainfall
Through the leaking roof
That you had left behind
You remind me
Of that leak in my soul

The rain falls
My friends call
Leaking rain on the phone

Take a day, plant some trees
May they shade you from me
May your children play beneath

Blank page was all the rage
Never meant to say anything
In bed, I was half dead
Tired of dreaming of rest
Got dressed drove the state line
Looking for you at the five and dime
But there I was, picking pieces up

You are a ghost
Of my indecision
No more little girl.

16.  Once in a While

Once in a While

Horses run
Once in a while for you

The shades will draw
Once in a while for you

Destiny will hide the sense of your time
Once in a while
Once in a while for you

The soldiers will fall
Once in a while for you

The shades will crawl
Once in a while for you

You’ll take the walls
I will take the new ring

Once in a while
Once in a while its you
Once in a while its you

Once in a while
You’ll make it on your own
You’ll make it so alone
Feel so alone

You’ll try to care
Once in a while for me
And I will be there
Once in a while
Once in a while for you
Once in a while for you
Once in a while for you

17.  17  Seconds

17 Seconds

17 seconds of compassion

17 seconds of peace

17 seconds to remember love is the energy behind witch all is created

17 seconds to remember all that is good

17 seconds to forget all your hurt and pain

17 seconds of faith

17 seconds to trust you again

17 seconds of radiance

17 seconds to send a prayer up

17 seconds is all that you need

Smashing Pumpkins will be performing Live in Manila on August 07, 2012 in the Smart Araneta Coliseum as they promote their latest album…

People Need to Stop Torturing Themselves with Negativity

Save yourself. Read this.

Talin Orfali Ghazarian

In the past week with a lot of negative posts to me by a couple of people who keep spamming my blog posts with terrible comments that are so negative, I thought I bring this topic up with why people torture themselves with negativity? I have taken out all that negativity in my life and I did not let it effect me, I stood up for myself and for my rights. It is a tough battlefield out there with negativity, and with cruel and insensitive people toward others. I am not letting those things bother me and torture myself with other peoples hate words. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel and I am happy with myself and who I am. People shouldn’t put themselves down, if you keep on being negative, and always saying I am not good enough for someone, somethings and I cannot…

The Things I Like Most About Accounting

1.   The Use of Mathematics

My predecessor would not know that it is possible to determine the exact amount of bonus of certain percentage based on net income after bonus is deducted from gross income along with other expenses-  until I used algebra.  She used to use the Gross Profit  figure as basis of bonus which I think is not appropriate. She argued, “How come you come up with bonus based on income you could not come up with without coming up with the bonus first?”

Obviously, she is neither an Accounting nor a Math major.

Nosebleed?

Brainfreeze?

To illustrate:  This my pro-forma for simplified Statement of Income

Sales                                                                   Php      xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Less:  Cost of Sales                                                         xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Gross Profit                                                                       xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Less:  Administrative Expenses                                     xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Gross Income before Bonus                                           xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Less:  Bonus                                                                     xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Net Income                                                                    xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Lets substitute arbitrary values:

Sales                                                                 Php         100,000,000.00

Less:  Cost of Sales                                                            87,000,000.00

Gross Profit                                                                      13,000.000.00

Less:  Administrative Expenses                                        7,000,000.00

Gross Income before Bonus                                             6,000,000.00

Less:  Bonus                                                               5% of Net Income

Net Income                                                                     xxx,xxx,xxx.xx

Now, let’s solve for the value of Bonus:

Let

B = Bonus

GIB = Gross Income before Bonus

NI  = Net Income

It can be deduced that

NI = GIB – B

But

B = 5% or .05 of NI

Then,

NI = GIB – .05NI

Transpose, add similar terms

NI + .05NI = GIB

Or

NI (1 + .05) = GIB.

NI = GIB ÷ 1.05

Substitute:

NI = 6,000,000.00 ÷ 1.05

NI = 5,714,285.71

B = 5% of NI

B = 285,714.29

And your Statement of Income will look like this:

Sales                                                                   Php      100,000,000.00

Less:  Cost of Sales                                                          87,000,000.00

Gross Profit                                                                      13,000.000.00

Less:  Administrative Expenses                                        7,000,000.00

Gross Income before Bonus                                             6,000,000.00

Less:  Bonus                                                                        285,714.29

Net Income                                                                     5,714,285.71

 

Disclaimer

  1.  This approach is not the most efficient.  You can use any other formula, just be sure we’ll have the same answer.
  2. The problem may seem not to be a problem at all for someone,  but for the benefit of the doubt and the majority,  and for the sake of this post,  laissez-faire!
  3. This example is just one of numerous mathematical problems I encounter (she encounters) in the workplace.  Some others are far more challenging.

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises (A Third Opinion)

I proudly reblog this.

Funk's House of Geekery

It’s been 4 years since The Dark Knight smashed it’s way into theaters and shook the comic-book movie world forever.  Four long, arduous and theorizing years that kept fans guessing and casual onlookers wondering what exactly we were going to get in the epic conclusion to the trilogy. I think that before you dissect The Dark Knight Rises you need to go back and look at the first two entries, particularly Batman Begins which (in no secret) is the catalyst for a lot of the storytelling elements for this movie.   Begins was a way of giving birth to a legend, The Dark Knight gave us the fall of a legend and The Dark Knight Rises brings us the rebirth of a legend.   In order to advance the story of Bruce Wayne further the filmmakers felt it was needed to go back to the beginning and flesh out a lot of…

Things A Son Should Know Before He Turns 18 and Leave Your Side (A Repost)

Family and friends know how much I love making a list. From list of things to do to list of things to live by and lists of what to buy today or in the near future. I write article with all kinds of lists that have included the list of the most beautiful liberal art colleges to smart and beautiful politicians and even the most worthy WAGS. So when I read an article of a mom with a list of what she considered all the things she thought she must give for her son, I loved it. Though I do not remember if it was a blog post or an article but it certainly stayed in my mind and I vowed that one day I would also make one for my son.
As my son grows older there is a certain satisfaction in me because we have come this far but there is also a degree of fear that my kind of rearing may have done a damage or two. Looking at my son and how he interacts with society, I think I can give myself a pat because he turned out right.
Still, I can’t help but worry that in the future he might make a mistake. Am not saying he is not entitled to make mistakes, it is a fact of life that we often make mistakes and we must learn from it. There are mistakes though that should not be made if only we have ingrained these facts for them.
Here is a list of must-not and must-do’s that I thought any son should know before he turns 18 and leaves the home.
  1. The world does not revolve around you. You are just a speck in the microcosm, so don’t expect people to do things for you. You have to work hard to reach your goal; nobody is going to hand it to you. Be aware of what is going around you.
  2. The old lady next to you is someone else’s mom. Open the door or carry her bag and remember that someone else may be doing it for your mom, right this very moment.
  3. Real men wear aprons. The stove and washing machine does not recognize the hands that use them. Learn how to use both these appliances. It may save you from hunger and dirty clothes one of these days.
  4. You do not have a maid; learn to pick up your dirty clothes.
  5. When you make a promise, keep it. Your word of honor is something to be proud of.
  6. It’s alright to get mad but it is not right to use your fists to settle disagreements.
  7. Keep yourself clean, shower daily, trim your nails, and use your deodorant. Do not wear anything from the dirty laundry basket.
  8. It is okay to make a stand especially on issues that matter even when everyone else is silent. Know what these are.
  9. Treat girls as they are meant to be treated; they have brains as well as personality, not just bodies.
  10. There has never ever been a good reason enough for you to break up with a girl over the phone. Have the decency, and guts, to talk with her personally.
  11. Break up first before you get into another relationship. Remember you have cousins and you would not want any boy to treat them that way, too. Karma is a bitch.
  12. Real women do not look like Victoria Secret angels. Just take a look at your mom.
  13. Always keep a condom in your wallet; it can save your life.
  14. Don’t drink and drive. If you are drunk, never get behind the wheel.
  15. You are never too old to use the good manners you learned when you were young.
  16. You were taught table manners, use them.
  17. Peer pressure is something all of us have experienced. You will, too. Resisting the pressure and dare to be “man enough” to participate in something wrong will be difficult. The pull to be one with them is a temptation that will be hard to resist. Resisting though will make a man out of you and surrendering to such a “dare” is cowardice. Read #8.
  18. Texting while driving is a big no-no. SEXTING is a bigger offense.
  19. NEVER use the words gay and nigger in a derogatory manner. Respect people no matter what race, faith or preference, they are people just like you.
  20. Admitting your fault or mistake does not make you less of a man. So does showing your feelings.
  21. It would be so beautiful if you can and will always win but this is reality, learn to accept losing with grace.
  22. Enjoy life, in fact, live life to the fullest. Be happy and know that I am always here for you.
  23. And lastly, be the man that I believe you are. Always remember I love you.
Note that this is not in order of importance because I feel that these are all important for my son to know. For those with their own list, do share it with me and all the other readers.
While looking for a photo to include in this blog post, I saw this beautiful and inspiring blog update 25 Rules for Mothers of Sons and I knew I just had to comment and include this in my post, especially for new mothers, though anyone can actually adapt this list, whether she has a son or daughter.

I am guilty.

The ticking of the clock is hard to get by

Every second, every minute, every sigh

Please forgive me for committing a crime

I admit,  I am guilty, I am killing time
