Suggestion & Its Seductiveness

I was trying to watch SNL on DirecTV and my satellites' broadcasting abilities are failing miserably right now. So I put on Marilyn Manson's Dead to the World VHS tape I purchased in 1996 at the age of 16 and had to charm the then twenty-something sales clerk into allowing me to purchase. I remember thinking how cool it'd be if I could take her back to my parents home and watch the video with her. Never happened.

It makes me remember being a teen, and when concerts, rock music in general, and gangster was the thing to jam to.

Now I still love the rock, always have, always will, it won't never die, but now I seriously think, what if I grew up in the generation where Pink Floyd was jamming, since they are my all-time favorite band and although having heard of them and listened to their songs since the age of 15, I never fully realized the greatness that is 'Comfortably Numb' and 'Learning to Fly' these are epic presentations of sounds reaching into the human body and mind and causing a reaction, stirring up emotions...

It all is I suppose, some works better than others, but if instead of focusing on roaring blaring speedy guitar riffs, and songs like f*ck tha police and negasonic teenage warheads... that is suggestive, and the power of suggestion is very very strong. young and naive perhaps, but I bought into the glam rock parade of nihilists and anarchists vs established society.

Its hard as hell to maintain a life like that.

All I am really thinking is how, if Stairway to Heaven or Hotel California or Wish You Were Here or Fortunate Son had been playing the on the radio instead of I Hate Myself and Want to Die, maybe things would've turned out differently. But would that be any better? I lack that knowledge.
