S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W lyrics by My Chemical Romance.

The new album from My Chemical Romance is out and it is flipping awesome and so different to The Black Parade, their previous album (well that is my opinion). It’s called “Danger Days – The true lives of the fabulous killjoys“. There are plenty of websites that have done reviews on the album, so head over to them if you want to find out more. Some examples would be Quietus, Ultimate GuitarThrash Hits etc.

There are so many good songs on the album (Bulletproof Heart, Na Na Na, Sing, The only hope for me is you, Sing, but S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W is particularly awesome and would be a brilliant stadium song. I can’t wait to see these guys live.

Here are the lyrics to S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W:

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Make a wish when your childhood dies
Hear the knock knock knock when she cries
We’re all alone tonight

Hold your breath when a black bird flies
Count to 17 and close your eyes
I’ll keep you safe inside

He burns my skin
Nevermind about shape I’m in
I keep you safe tonight

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Blow a kiss up the methane skies
See the wasp through your playground eyes
We’re all in love tonight

Leave a dream where a fallout lies
Watch it grow where the tears stay dry
To keep you safe tonight

He burns my skin
Nevermind about the shape I’m in
I keep you safe tonight

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Love love love won’t stop this bomb bomb
Love won’t stop this bomb bomb
Love won’t stop this bomb

Run, run, bunny, run
Run, run, bunny, RUN

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Move your body when the sunlight dies
Everybody hide your body from the S/C/A/R/E/C/R/O/W
Everybody hide

Happy Friday Joke!

A woman asks her  husband at breakfast time, “Would you like some bacon and eggs, a slice of toast, and maybe some grapefruit juice and coffee?”  He declines.  “Thanks for asking, but I’m not hungry right now.  It’s this Viagra,” he says.  “It’s really taken the edge off my appetite.”

At lunchtime, she asked him if he would like something.  “How about a  bowl of soup, homemade muffins, or a cheese sandwich?”  He declines.  “The Viagra,” he says, “really trashes my desire for food.”

Come dinnertime, she asks if he wants anything to eat.  “Would you like a juicy rib eye steak and some scrumptious apple pie?  Or maybe a rotisserie chicken or tasty stir fry?”  He declines again. “No,” he says, “it’s got to be the Viagra. I’m still  not hungry.”

“Well,” she says, “Would you mind letting me up? I’m starving.”

Hinder – Lips of an angel

One of the best songs on Guitar Hero is ‘Lips of an angel’ by Hinder. An American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, guitarist Joe Garvey, and singer Austin Winkler. The band was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2007.

They write and sing all their own material.

Honey why you calling me so late?
It’s kinda hard to talk right now.
Honey why are you crying? Is everything okay?
I gotta whisper ’cause I can’t be too loud

Well, my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It’s funny that you’re calling me tonight
And, yes, I’ve dreamt of you too
And does he know you’re talking to me
Will it start a fight
No I don’t think she has a clue

Well my girl’s in the next room
Sometimes I wish she was you
I guess we never really moved on
It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

It’s really good to hear your voice saying my name
It sounds so sweet
Coming from the lips of an angel
Hearing those words it makes me weak

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

And I never wanna say goodbye
But girl you make it hard to be faithful
With the lips of an angel

Honey why you calling me so late?

Pushing the Nokia N900 to the limit!

I am not quite sure what the limit is for the Nokia N900, since I have been pushing it for quite some time, but I think I have reached a milestone in numbers. Currently my setup is:

  • Version 20.2010.36.2 (PR1.3).
  • 9 unique desktops.
  • 81 desktop shortcuts.
  • 22 loaded widgets (CPU x 3, Touch Search, Desktop Browser x 9, Conversations, Queen Beacon x 4, Calendar, Forca Weather, OMWeather, Feeding it).
  • 95 applications in the menu.
  • Overclocked to 1000mhz and stable.

Overclocking the N900 makes all the difference in performance, although it can cause the device to be quite unstable if the wrong configuration is used, so it takes a lot of patience and fiddling to get the right set up.

Some of the resources I have used to date for overclocking:

  1. Jakiman’s N900 Overclocking Guide – This is a brilliant guide and works exactly as the steps suggest.
  2. Titan – more configuration options. Very useful if you want to add your own settings.
  3. Tonism – offers the latest starving configuration for titan kernel!
  4. Jakiman offers some extra steps for setting the same MIN and MAX settings (e.g. 1000 1000). These are the settings I applied after I successfully completed step 1 and they work brilliantly. My N900 is super fast now and surprisingly very stable. I managed to open 56 applications (before it started to falter).
  5. Queen Beacon Widget – This widget is amazing in it’s own right but is key to the over clocking process.
  6. Bakuur has a complete step by step guide on overclocking and using the Queen Beacon Widget (with diagrams). – Very cool!
  7. Jakiman’s name pops upagain and here is his guide to using Queen Beacon and overclocking. – This is what I used and it works!
  8. Lehto is another cool customer overclocking his N900 and reporting on the different speeds achieved.
  9. Finally all these brilliant people can be found at Maemo.org in the forums sharing their knowledge and it should be the place where you go first to read up on Overclocking the N900. This topic has managed to generate 495 pages so far, which just goes to show how popular this topic is.

Below are ten large (content heavy) websites that I loaded up with ease with my 1000Mhz setup.

Edit: 03/11/2010: The screen below shows the CPU widget showing 1000MHz. I have fixed the MIN and MAX to 1000MHz. I was running my N900 all day at 1000MHz and it was fast, very responsive, and an absolute pleasure to use.

Next challenge: Dual booting Maemo 5 (Fremantle) PR1.3 and MeeGo 1.1
