Throw Back Thursday: Boston Paul – 17 Years Old.

Just found this old gem!

Boston Paul before he was Boston Paul.

Boston Paul @ 17ish years old.

Paul at 17 years old Hanover Mass


Oh how the years go by!

This picture was taken about a year before I joined the army. The shirt I’m wearing is a Ronnie James Dio concert shirt. I believe the picture was taken in Hanover, Massachusetts. They called me Gypsi (and still do!)

That picture seems worlds away…  as I write from the other side of the world.

Times were different back then, I remember a Fuck Society Attitude, a Fuck God Attitude, and a I’ll Do What I Want to Do & I’ll Do it My Way Attitude.


I still got Attitude. Still forging through Life and doing it my way.

ButI know where I stand in the world.

I know I want Peace & Love in the world and struggle to bring that about at all costs, despite the Nay-Sayers, The Ignorant, The Negative Ones, The Jealous & Envious Ones, The Gossipers & Back Stabbers and the Fake Ones.   The more you rise up and the more well known you get, the more you’ll encounter these types of people. People who want to bring you down.

Keep being true to yourself, your friends and family…

Thank Thor & His Buddies that the Good Ones out number the ones listed above.

Happy Throw Back

Peace & Love

The Band name: 大METⒶ4
(Scroll down for ‘I Need War’ Lyrics)

This band rocks.  They just don’t go out and sing songs, they rock the fuck out and spew a not so subtle message about how you’re being fucked over by your government and the evil corporations that control your government.

Their Music not only makes you want to get up and dance, raise your fist in the air, bang your head, Mosh, Crowd Surf and sing along to their catchy lyrics, but it also gets you thinking.

Greg Wu PIX2Lyrics to I NEED WAR:
I Need War
1. I need War, so I can have more Fun watching people run from the bullets of my gun.
I need War because it’s Profit
My War Machine’s Growin’ nothing gonna stop it
I need War so I can soar- an eagle high on the Horizon I got my eyes on free passes, war of the classes, Nasa’s Lads & Lasses, spying on the masses

I control everything you see, as long as you’re working, you’re working for me, the economy belongs to me, Every country and king is in my control. I control the nation, the inflation, deflation, your salvation and what you call The Creation.

I need War, so I can get more Sun, While I Get shit done like Attila The Hun
Everyone needs a little funny money some honey honey on a sunny day
I Make Distractions so you don’t see me slowly Kill the Free my way

If Peace Would Pay, I’d Spread Peace like I spread bullets in the Middle East

People People run for the hills before I start giving you pharmaceuticals
not for thrills but for ills you never knew you had, I’m telling you that life ain’t so bad!

I need War! War!
