Rock out with some MADNESS


Muse
Madness

(Mu-mu-mu-mad-mad-mad) x3
I... I can't get these memories out of my mind.
And some kind of Madness,
Has started to evolve, mmn.

And I... I tried so hard to let you go.
But some kind of Madness,
Is swallowing me whole, yeh.

I have finally seen the light.
And I... have finally realized.
What you mean...
And now, I need to know if it's real love.
Or is it just Madness,
Keeping us afloat, mmm.

And when I look back, at all the crazy fights we have,
Like some kind of M-m-madness,
Was taking control, yeh.
And now I have finally seen the light,
And I... have finally realized,
What you need, mmm.

(Mu-mu-mu-mad-mad-mad) x2

And now I have finally seen the end,
(I have seen the end)
And I'm... I'm expecting you to care,
(Expecting you to care)
And I... have finally seen the light,
(Have finally seen the light)
And I... have finally realized,
(Realized)
(I NEED TO LOVE) x2

Capture me,
Trust in your dream,
Come on and rescue me.
Yes, I know, I can't move on,
Baby, you're too head-strong.
Our love is...
(Mu-mu-mu-mad-mad-mad) x4

Rock out for Lucia's berfday!

Professional Killer
 
 Conquer your world
Study you quietly
Count the ways
I'll do anything you say
There will be no holding back
Legions of me

So cruel
Longing eternally
Bitter sweet possibilities
A tiger on the attack
Ready to bleed

Tragically yours
Obey and submit to me
I will find you
Wherever you hide
Got a thrill for the hunt
A skilled criminal mind

So calm
Tracking your every move
Unrelenting my conscious clear
Beyond a shadow of doubt
A force to be feared

Wretched and pure
Tricky and dangerous
Do not question
Or challenge your fate
A promise written in blood
Take life for pay

Yours is not to ask why
Yours is to do and die
Professional killer

WTF Friday...

Review Tuesday: The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014) / The Taking (original title)

The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014) - IMDb
The Taking of Deborah Logan
The Taking (original title)
While a camera crew records Deborah Logan's descent into Alzheimer's Disease, strange things start to occur. 
This is considered a "found footage film" despite the fact that this is supposed to have been a documentary that ends up going sideways. But I suppose this is the nature of the animal. Anything that has what's normally considered "behind the scenes" and a shaky camera is all considered found footage. 

This was another flick that Mrs Bax0jayz selected during quarantine. When it first started, it took a little while to really get started. The film crew is paying a family, an elderly woman named Deborah Logan (brilliantly played by Jill Larson)  and her daughter Sarah (Anne Ramsay) to document how a family deals with a member as she contends with Alzheimer's Disease. Several times during the beginning of the film I asked my wife Are you SURE this is a horror movie? It looks really depressing to me! But she assured me found it in the horror section of AMAZON. Okay...

Of course, it DID pick up. The old lady says and does curious and creepy things. Unexplainable events occur. The suspense builds. Doctors are at a loss to explain things. 

Of course, between the documentarians and Sarah they were able to put together the odd pieces and figure things out in time for an explosive ending. 

This movie turned out to be WAY better than I expected. Don't let the slow start sway you. Once the action begins, it will keep you riveted to the screen. The ending felt like it might have been a little drawn out, but I suppose they did so for purposes of suspense. However, it does contain one of the most terrifying horror scenes that you have, likely, already seen clipped on the internet.

This movie was way better than expected and worth your time to watch especially going into Halloween season!
