Stone Gossard - July 20, 1966
Chris Cornell - July 20, 1964
So! Today’s Chris Cornell’s fiftieth birthday and I wrote something to celebrate him – kind of an insane thing, have mercy if it sucks ;)
Soon I’ll add notes and songs credits at the end, but right now I’m in a hurry, so… just a little patience :3
(Oh, I was almost forgetting: happy birthday, Stone Gossard! :D)
Sooo! In these past days I disappeared because I was writing this thing for Cornell’s fiftieth birthday and, yeah, I know it’s reeeeeaaaally long and boring but, if you guys want to let me know what you think about it, it would be really appreciated :))
Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION!! this bear is dying out here! he’s not fit for a weather like ours and they still refuse to let him go because they’ll try to squeeze as much money as they can before he dies!
The reason I found the reaction to Eddie’s speech strange is that he didn’t say anything incredibly radical or aggressive towards any group of people. He just said, essentially, “no more war.” And I thought, they have so many songs with that message, and if they’d just played a song, there would have been no backlash. But the same words are all there, in the lyrics. Somehow, it’s received differently for Eddie to speak openly about these things than to write it into a song and sing it. And it makes me wonder, how much do people pay attention to what’s being said in Pearl Jam’s songs?
Most of us have heard John Lennon sing
“You may say I’m a dreamer,… but I’m not the only one.”
And some of us, after another morning dose of news coverage full of death and destruction, feel the need to reach out to others to see if we are not alone in our outrage. With about a dozen assorted ongoing conflicts in the news everyday, and with the stories becoming more horrific, the level of sadness becomes unbearable. And what becomes of our planet when that sadness becomes apathy? Because we feel helpless. And we turn our heads and turn the page.
Currently, I’m full of hope. That hope springs from the multitudes of people that our band has been fortunate enough to play for night after night here in Europe. To see flags of so many different nations, and to have these huge crowds gathered peacefully and joyfully is the exact inspiration behind the words I felt the need to emphatically relay. When attempting to make a plea for more peace in the world at a rock concert, we are reflecting the feelings of all those we have come in contact with so we may all have a better understanding of each other.
That’s not something I’m going to stop anytime soon. Call me naïve. I’d rather be naïve, heartfelt and hopeful than resigned to say nothing for fear of misinterpretation and retribution.
The majority of humans on this planet are more consumed by the pursuit of love, health, family, food and shelter than any kind of war.
War hurts. It hurts no matter which sides the bombs are falling on.
With all the global achievements in modern technology,
enhanced communication and information devices, cracking the human genome, land rovers on Mars etc., do we really have to resign ourselves to the devastating reality that conflict will be resolved with bombs, murder and acts of barbarism?
We are such a remarkable species. Capable of creating beauty. Capable of awe-inspiring advancements. We must be capable of resolving conflicts without bloodshed.
I don’t know how to reconcile the peaceful rainbow of flags we see each night at our concerts with the daily news of a dozen global conflicts and their horrific consequences. I don’t know how to process the feeling of guilt and complicity when I hear about the deaths of a civilian family from a U.S. drone strike. But I know that we can’t let the sadness turn into apathy. And I do know we are better off when we reach out to each other.
“I hope someday you’ll join us,…”
Won’t you listen to what the man said.
— Eddie Vedder (an open letter, July 16 2014)
Happy 62nd birthday to Stewart Armstrong Copeland!
