Like a Good Friend…

Cradle of Filth is there.

Turn the clock back to the late 90′s early 2000′s and remember how things “used to be”. The economy was booming, your house had its value, and you’d just boxed up all but one of those Bon Jovi tapes you’d sworn off. You peer out your front window to a view that appears as if it would have been at home in the opening of Blue Velvet. In this picturesque reality, you ask yourself, “Self, what could make the world better?”

After a long and calculated pause, self replies in the only way it can…..with Midian

If you’re not familiar with Cradle of Filth, you’ve got a little catching up to do, and dare I say some excellent music in your future. Don’t cheat and go watching a bunch of Youtube videos as they may only bring you down since they all seem to paint a bleak picture. Fire up Pandora and listen to their tracks or launch the Youtube play list in the background and listen in as you go about boring office work. It’ll keep the rift raft away while surely opening your mind up to symphonic metal grooves that just may have you thinking, “Hmm, that non existent bad guy deity might be pretty cool after all”.

So, When everyone else is rocking the latest pop hits at the stoplight this summer, advance your CD changer from that New Jersey album to something a little less trendy and a little more thought provoking like Dusk… and Her Embrace and remember the good times.

    The opportunity, though, is the biggest of our generation (or the last one, for that matter). The opportunity is there for anyone (with or without a job) smart enough to take it–to develop a best in class skill, to tell a story, to spread the word, to be in demand, to satisfy real needs, to run from the mediocre middle and to change everything.

    ┬íNote! Like all revolutions, this is an opportunity, not a solution, not a guarantee. It’s an opportunity to poke and experiment and fail and discover dead ends on the way to making a difference. The old economy offered a guarantee–time plus education plus obedience = stability. The new one, not so much. The new one offers a chance for you to take a chance and make an impact.
