Daily Open Thread for Tuesday, Jan. 15: I can't hear you... a little louder!

"Give me a reason to peel off my face... I AM ABOUT TO BREAK" | Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park - Kathleen Allen Photography

Here's your "Daily Open Thread" for Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013: I can't hear you, a little louder! Throughout your day, come tell us what you have to say, we won't turn our backs on you. Plus, time spent here is guaranteed to be well worth it.

Here's your Daily Open Thread for Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013. As usual, come discuss whatever you would like, whether you get bored at work, have something on your mind, or just want to chat with all your favorite lovely Cagesiders on any topic you want!

But right now, there is something I have to say... and I am gonna need you to shut up when I am talking to you:

I cannot take this anymore, saying everything I've said before. All these words they make no sense... I find bliss in ignorance. Less I hear the less you'll say. You'll find out that anyway. Just like before...

Everything you say to me, takes me one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break. I need a little room to breathe, cause I'm one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break.

I find the answers aren't so clear. Wish I could find a way to disappear. All these thoughts they make no sense... I found bliss in ignorance. Nothing seems to go away, over and over again, just like before...

Everything you say to me, takes me one step closer to the edge -- and I'm about to break. I need a little room to breathe, cause I'm one step closer to the edge. I'm about to break. Everything you say to me takes me one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break. I need a little room to breathe, cause I'm one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break.

Shut up when I'm talking to you. Shut up shut up shut up. Shut up when I'm talking to you! Shut up shut up shut up shut up!!! I'm about to break!!!


Everything you say to me, takes me one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break. I need a little room to breathe, cause I'm one step closer to the edge. I'm about to break. Everything you say to me, takes me one step closer to the edge and I'm about to break. I need a little room to breathe, cause I'm one step closer to the edge --
And I'm about to...

BREAK!

Today's lyrical rant and video, spurred by yesterday's open thread, is from one of my all time favorite concerts. And like many rock songs, it is thee most enjoyable when played at thee loudest possible volume your ear drums can withstand, and then just a notch louder... and of course it is against the laws of rock to not scream along with (I defy you not to feel something move within you, if you try it at least once -- maybe in your car on the way home from work tonight?).

"One Step Closer", performed Live! in Texas in 2003, by Linkin Park - at the 1:01:30 mark here, or from the beginning of the event here:


This footage is of the entire insane concert they put on that day, but we are actually joining them for their last number here; so, kinda like getting to have your dessert before dinner!

After checking that out, then be sure to scroll on down through the thread, revisit it throughout the day and night and you will be sure to see some of the usual gems from your fellow Cagesiders, including:

Link of the day, Babe of the day, Bro of the day, Alison Brie gif of the day, AJ Lee pic of the day, Photo Caption of the Day, and more! This thread is almost always guaranteed to cheer up any form of blues you may have, or give you a venue to gripe about work, your better half or the public at large. It is so cathartic, give it a chance, go on ahead and comment or lurk 'til your heart is content!
