Hiya, I haven't been writing for some time, because of my health issues. As I'm getting better, I wanted to share some thoughts about my "Stories from the Otherside". I celebrated one month anniversary of starting the blog lately and it made me thinking. When I first established the thing, I titled it … Continue reading “Scar Tissue” that I wish you read. About me and my blog.
Reading a book that has no ending, as the author died while writing it, and you know it. You know there's no ending. And yet you're reading. Buying and listening to CDs, when you can simply use Spotify or YouTube. Writing in the notebook, using a pen and your hand, whereas no one still does … Continue reading Doing Things There’s No Reason To Do.
There was this time in Chili Peppers history, as Anthony remembers in "Scar Tissue", when they all were sarcastic. He mentions that Dave Navarro, as good friend as he was, was very sarcastic indeed. He had a great sense of humour and they had a good laugh together. And yet chemistry didn't last and working … Continue reading Sarcastic Ms Know-It-All.
"Best of You" is one of the best songs ever. It's not only that it's just simply the best, some may disagree and I take that. The thing is the lyrics are so wise. Anytime I lose so called "sense of life" from my sight, this song helps me reclaim it. I don't always want … Continue reading I’ve Got Another Confession To Make.
Some time ago I asked this dear friend of mine if he wanted me to make his day more surreal. And his answer was: "I'm not sure if I can take anymore of that from you". I was surprised, I admit that. Well, I did it anyway. We had a big laugh. And here's another … Continue reading Stranger Things Could Never Change My Mind.
Anthony and Dani reunion, from his point of view. Brief draft inspired by "Scar Tissue", the song and the autobiography. Piece of scribbling based on the hard and tricky relationship with Yohanna Logan. The dog, as I mentioned last time, is Buster, the one, which helped Anthony stay clean. * What is this thing?, she … Continue reading Push Me Up Against The Wall
Reunion of Anthony and Dani, from Dani's point of view, inspired softly by "Tell Me Baby" (Stadium Arcadium) and sweet "Porcelain" (Californication). The song, "Porcelain" was inspired by a woman, which Anthony met at the rehab. She had a little baby-girl, and couldn't work through her junk addiction. Very sweet, heart touching story. The next … Continue reading You’re So Lovely, Are You Lonely?
Do you want to get rid of me? No. Are you seeing someone else? No. I mean, yes. But... that's not the point. As long as you need it, as long as you're happy here, you are always welcome. You welcome me... in my house. My point is... Stop with the point. There's no point … Continue reading She’s A Runner, Rebel And A Stunner.
At the beginning it was too fast. And when I'm saying "too fast", I mean: "Whoa, where the hell am I going and am I going to survive it by any f... chances!!!". And then it was just pure, georgeous, heavenly fun. My awesome skateboard has a brand new set of wheels. Not only they … Continue reading Find The World At Your Command
"Get off! You're unhappy." Get off yourself! I'd say to everyone, but my man. His words made me think twice. 1# thought: Well, if I'M unhappy, it's your fault, do something! 2# thought: I can't rely on other people to make me happy. Gotta try and DIY. What makes me happy then? I was struggling … Continue reading That will make you feel better.
"Don't ever give up your fight. You are a warrior and you will beat this thing that you're up against. I have faith in you. I never forget you, don't forget your own self." Those are the words that Gloria Scott wrote on a postcard to Anthony Kiedis. And he thought: "There's a person out … Continue reading Don’t Forget You.
