So something I've been wanting to do...but just to sad to post.  

When Chris Cornell died on May 18th, the world lost a voice that new no bounds.  The Howling Voice of Seattle.  The Front Man of Grunge.  As Hanif Willis wrote on his blog, ' I want to pick up a Soundgarden LP and lightly slap the cover while locking eyes with someone younger than me and saying, “This guy. This fuckin’ guy was one of the last real rock stars".'

So what was grunge?  It was the music that defended the young and social issues and threw out a huge 'fuck you' to the insincere corporations and society.  It brought to light 'societal ills' - broken homes, suicide, drug addiction and self loathing.  It allowed Gen X'ers to look inside and see what was fucked up.  

Artists like Layne Staley, Curt Cobain, Mark Lenegan, Carrie Akre, Eddie Veder, - and of course, Chris Cornell - haunted us with their dark lyrics, howling voices and wall of distorted electrical guitars.  This was the diametrical opposite of the clean mainstream rock of the same era.  Grunge had something to say...and it did it in a way that helped us see the ugliness that was eating away under the surface of the perfect suburbia that corporations wished us to believe in.

Soundgardern.  Temple of the Dog.  Audioslave.  Solo Artist.  No matter who he fronted for, Chris Cornell voice was best described by Wikipedia as - the singer 'who could wail and sing high-pitched notes like Robert Plant and Vedder, who mixed a Jim Morrison-influenced baritone voice with a blend of punk and rock styles'.  A man whose transcended voice could open musical borders.

I'll leave you with one last quote, again by Hanif Willis.

"I watch the video for “Black Hole Sun” now and it makes sense in the worst ways. I think I am less afraid now of whatever any apocalypse looks like, but I will never forget how Chris Cornell once dragged me to the window seat at the end of the world. In the tapestry of rock-and-roll memories, I will hold a large place for the image of me in the dark, bathing in the glow of a television with Chris Cornell’s imagined redemption raining down fire on the suburbs. Chris Cornell is gone, survived by the way he cared for the music he made. Survived by being unafraid to write about that which was destroying him, and that which he wanted to see destroyed. Survived by the home he made for all of us with his warm and echoing voice."</i>


Here are two, perhaps the BEST unplugged version of songs ever done. of Cornell and his amazing voice.   Rest in Peace buddy...you've fought long enough.

Jess - Ouslander
The last of three for this series of Jess.  An undying Drifter from the world of Shadows of Brimstone.  Forever young, forever beautiful, and forever...deadly.  My thanks to the AMAZING :iconaphrodite-ns:
for once again capturing the essence that is our beautiful heroine.  



It kills me not to know this, but I've all but just forgotten
What the color of her eyes were, and her scars or how she got them
As the telling signs of age rain down, a single tear is dropping
Through the valleys of an aging face, that this world has forgotten

There is no reconciliation that will put me in my place
And there is no time like the present, to drink these draining seconds
But seldom do these words ring true, when I'm constantly failing you
Like walls that we just can't break through, until we disappear


And the day pressed on like crushing weights
For no man does it ever wait
Like memories of dying days
That deafen us like hurricanes
Bathed in flames we held the brand
Uncurled the fingers in your hand
Pressed into the flesh like sand
Now do you understand?

So tell me now
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
Because I don't know
That's when she said I don't hate you boy
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save
That's when I told her I love you girl
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have, whoa, whoa

Just another *kick-ass* song that soo fits Jess






<snippet from :iconmaelora69: turn>



...The creatures are blurringly swift, as they lunge at you in unison, gripping spears in their scaly hands.  But you are faster still, drawing your pistol in one smooth motion, your other hand fanning the hammer faster than the eye can follow.  You place four, five shots in the creature before it can react, and bloody splashes blossom across its scaly chest.  It stumbles, yet still they come at you, hissing malevolently.  You dodge nimbly, avoiding the tip of the spear, unwilling to be spitted like a possum on a pole.  Dog yelps and bits, worrying the snake-thing’s thrashing tail as he circles behind it.  You unload another fusillade of bullets at almost point-blank range, and finally the hybrid snake-man crashes to the grassy verge, it’s slimy blood oozing into the black waters.  The other one cuts and lunges with its broad-bladed lance, and you back off warily, pulling yourself up nimbly into the lower branches of a thick-boled tree.   A sharp whistling breaks the air, and a pair of feathered arrows bites into its hide, one of them burying itself deeply in the reptile-things’ flesh.  You glance over to see that one of the horrors lies still at the feet of the male tribal, body slashed with several long cuts, while he grapples in close quarters with the other.   The woman stands apart from the fray, launching arrows with blinding speed at the one threatening you. 


You give a nod of thanks, calling Dog back to the base of the tree, as the serpent-man hisses and launches itself back towards her.  She puts another arrow in its scaly hide, then drops her bow, whipping out tow bone-handled knives with chiselled dark stones as blades.  She weaves nimbly, evading its attack, and you have a perfect shot at its back, placing a few rounds into the thing from your vantage point.  It’s hardly a fair tactic, but you are outnumbered, after all.   It reels, stricken, and she slashes it with her knives, and as it falters, you swiftly reload and fire another volley.  One shot pierces its eye, and it slumps heavily to the ground.  With a nod of thanks, the woman turns to the last one as it struggles with the male, and she slides both of her blades into its ribs from the back.   Unable to defend itself, it hisses in pain and anger, as the male tribal casts it to the ground and stamps heavily on its neck.  It thrashes for a few moments, before its twitching tail lies still...

To Catch a Thief
A piece done by :iconaphrodite-ns: for an off-character.  A SWTOR character used for other projects.  Many thanks Aph!!!





Call me a thief
There's been a robbery
I left with her heart
Tore it apart
Made no apologies

I've been living in the darkness
Shadows in my apartment, heartless
Taking love just to spill it on parchment
Next page and I'm out again
I've been living in the night life
Lips hit you like a drive by, frost bite
Ice cold, I mean they cut you like a sharp knife
Next page and I'm out again

Skin on my skin, what a wonderful sin
Take your breath but you're asking for more
The tip of my finger is tracing your figure
I say good night and walk out the door

Call me a thief
There's been a robbery
I left with her heart
Tore it apart
Made no apologies
Just call me a thief
She was on top of me
Then I left with her heart
Broken and scarred
Made no apologies

CHAPTER ONE

The light from the holo-vid illuminated the image of a man in his mid-thirties, who now seemed to be the center of attention of the two people seated within the room. The woman, known as Watcher Five, merely waited till given the order to begin the debrief.

“As you know Keeper, Directive 7-ATF-99B (Seven dash Alfa Tango Foxtrot dash Niner Niner Bravo) allows us to recruit outside the normal means. The man you see presented is Napoleon Koi. Born on Coruscant to parents – Damon and Jarsana Koi – both who had known connections to the Hutt Cartel and Merchant Guild. At age 12, both parents were killed during an apparent robbery. Due to his age, Napoleon was sent to live with his Aunt – Alexandra Udinoff – his mother’s sister."

"At age eighteen, Koi enlisted with Republic Army and was posted on Corellia to aid their battle against the Imperial Occupation Forces. Here he made a name for himself during the Republic mission, code name - Operation Thundering Hammers. A four-man commando unit sent into Coronet city to extract the President of Xerotech – Davos Garam – who, with his board members, were stuck behind enemy lines."

"Two years later, his unit was re-tasked to Southern cities of Corellia, but Koi stayed behind to aid the Skirmisher Squads that were tasked with combating the Imperial Forces. This is where we believe that Koi discovered that profit could be made on the Post War Black Market by stealing and selling of art antiquities. It is assumed that he returned to the Xerotech building and retrieved a jade elephant worth 1.7 million credits. The elephant was part of a series of 5 from the artist – Paulo’o Dar’noth. The series, when placed together, formed a procession honoring the Alderaanian Queen. If all five pieces were brought to market, the estimated profit would range near 75 million credits. According to our contacts in the Underworld Markets, the other pieces were never found. Also, our sources believe that Koi is responsible for the theft of InterArms Bearer Bond stocks and the theft of the Antioch Manuscripts all totaling near 7 million in credits."

"A known serial womanizer (with an avid taste for only the finer things money can buy), he is also fluent in five languages, and has also been classically educated with an extensive background in Classical Art & Art History. He is still considered one of the best forgers in the market, and if our records are accurate, his current total theft of art & antiquities nears the 5 billion mark."

"His criminal ingenuity has made headlines in many of the populated worlds and…”

“How was he caught, Watcher 5?” came the flat response.

“In order to catch him, a joint task force comprised of four different Law Enforcement Agencies was assembled with the sole purpose of bringing him to justice. One of our deep cover operatives in the SIS, was part of this task force. From his report, it was merely dumb luck that they caught him at all.”

“He spent nearly a year in one of the Republic Supermax prisons. During that time, SIS discovered that the Warden was attempting to strong arm Koi for the location of where he hid his stolen fortune. Removing him to a more secure prison seemed the only viable option. However, during a routine transport to another one of the Republic SuperMax prisons, it is reported that Koi’s accomplices came to his aid and aided in his escape. This, of course, has been fabricated to cover-up our extraction of Koi and bring him here. He is currently being held in a containment cell awaiting your orders.”

“Will he work for us?"  came the flat response.  "He was at one time, a known, Republic sympathizer.”

“Napoleon Koi is neutral in the Imperial conflict. According to our sources, he has always taken the side with the most profit. Also, his new acquaintance with the Republic penal system has not endeared him to their ideals.  So, yes, Keeper. I believe if we strike a deal with him, he will accept.”

"Very well. Let's offer him a deal. Either he works for us...or he will be introduced to a very different method for dealing with criminals."

Jess Captured
This is part of a series of three that :iconaphrodite-ns: is doing for Jess.  Aph got Jess right from the beginning and continues to knock them out of the park for this character.   Much love for this.  





Do you know that no'
Don't mean yes'? It means no
So just hold up, wait a minute
Let me put my two cents in it

One, just be patient
Don't be rushing
Like you're anxious
And two, you're just too aggressive
Trying to get your ahh

Do you know that I know?
And I don't want to go there

They only want, only want
My ha ha ha, ha ha ha
Only want what they want
But, na ah ah, na ah ah
