America: The land of mentally ill people

This woman really needs an psychiatric evaluation on the stop, then should immidiately be sent to the closest mental asylum. She is also putting a restraining order against him and he had nothing to do with 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The real question is: What does P.Diddy have to do with 9/11 & the twin towers falling?

Saku Koivu's homecoming

Tonight, the Montreal Canadiens are playing the Anaheim Ducks in Montreal and that's not all, It's Saku Koivu's homecoming tonight,the first time since 2009 that he last played in Montreal.

Saku is a legend in Montreal: He overcame cancer in 2002 but came back in time for the final two games of the season, first european captian in team history & longest-serving captain in Canadiens history (tied with Jean Béliveau), led the Habs to a couple of playoff upsets, he sits at #10 on the list of the greatest NHL captians of all time in the March 2008 issue of impact magazine & he led them to a first-place finish in the eastern conference & northeast division in the 2007-2008 season.

The current Canadiens team are not the same without Koivu's leadership & play. He should have never left Montreal for Anaheim as UFA. Gionta will never be the captian Koivu was in Montreal.

Hope his number gets retired and wins a Stanley Cup before he retires.

The Arcade Fire part 1 (Funeral)

The Arcade Fire is an indie rock band from Montreal Quebec,The group was formed by Texan Win Butler,the grandson of swing-era bandleader Alvino Rey,who followed a friend to Montreal to to study music & religion at McGill university.He met Régine Chassange,the francophone daughter of Haitian parents who fled the island's repressive regime of the '60s.Chassange often performed in a medieval music ensemble or sang jazz standards while studying music.

The group's name is based off a Tall tale that was told to Butler when he was a child about a fire that burned down an arcade and killed all the kids inside.Though the story wasn't true,the young butler had believed it,and the words "arcade fire" had stayed with him to adulthood


Funeral is the Arcade Fire's debut album released on September 14th,2004.The band named it funeral because funerals had been such a common occurrence for Arcade Fire members in the time leading up to the release of their debut album that they titled it Funeral. Funeral was not a concept album based around death.Merge, the label that the arcade fire is on,pressed only 10,000 copies of Funeral ,but demand grew so quickly that the company couldn't keep up.

Funeral also earned Arcade Fire such prominent fans as David Byrne,who joined the band on stage to perform the Talking Heads "This Must Be the Place (Naive melody)," which was later released as the B-Side of a UK single, and David Bowie described the band in the March 10th,2005 issue of Rolling Stone "There's a certain uninhibited  passion in the Arcade Fire's huge, dense recording song.They meld everything from early Motown,French chanson and Talking Heads through the Cure in a kaleidoscopic dizzy sort of rush." Funeral was very well received and is praised as a "Modern Classic"

My personal favorite song off this album is Neighborhood #2 (Laika) because the song sounds like a heavy metal in spirit but is Indie Rock.

1. "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)"   4:48

My struggle with asperger's & social awkwardness

                                              (The Vines frontman Craig Nicholls has aspergers)

It's is very hard to be in high school while having asperger's because aspie's have very terrible social skills and very obessive obessions.Even the slightest difference eg: dress differently,obessions,tics etc...

"Aspie teens typically become more isolated socially during a period when they crave friendships and inclusion more than ever. In the cruel world of middle and high school, Aspies often face rejection, isolation and bullying."

I really hate having asperger's because with my social skills are as bad as Justin Bieber's music i cannot get a girlfriend and there are alot of beautiful ones at my school, that's what really sucks about it.I get laughed at because i read alot, i finish my work while everybody is socializing,i listen to all sorts of music from Heavy metal to jazz.The kids know i really like hockey but the bug me by saying who won the Stanley Cup in (insert year here) or how many points does Mario Lemieux/Donald Audette have?
I also get made fun of cause i cant pronouce words like "Three". i even think the way i talk sounds very awkward.

I posted on my facebook wall saying "i am very socially awkward" and my friends don't take it seriously.They just randomly like my comments saying "Social Awkwardness is very serious" i am trying to spread awareness on this issue, i told them you think social awkwardness is funny? it's a very serious issue so stop posting off-topic comments here!

There should be more awareness in high schools about asperger's syndrome & social awkwardness

Teens these days have no musical taste

The taste in most teens today is so terrible that they refuse to try different types of music, They have access to the internet and all the music in the world but they'd rather listen to the crap like Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Justin Bieber etc...The teens with the best taste are the Metalheads,General rock fans & the indie kids.

Teens in the 60s/70s/80s did not have internet,they had to buy an album with their allowance not knowing if it's good or was trial and error for them.That trial and error must have gotten them albums like On The Beach, Funhouse, Remain In Light,The Velvet underground & nico and crap.

I wish more teens would listen to Arcade Fire rather than whatever is popular today
