“What I love about music is that it’s the only thing I know of where there are absolutely no rules at all; I mean I know there’s parameters, but they’re kind of transparent, they’re just… guidelines. So you can do anything. I love to play wrong, you know. Backwards, forwards, like if I have a guitar riff one of the first things I do is learn it backwards. Because, what if it sounded really cool backwards? That’s such a simple thing. Something early on for me was like, okay, there’s scales and stuff like that, and they make sense, more than if you just omit notes and say to yourself, ‘You can’t go there.’ you know, but it starts to turn the turtle on its shell a little bit. So things like that are important to me; the rules, the guidelines that are there are there to be sort of… hammered down. That’s what I like to do; I like to play… wrong.”—Josh Homme in 2008
Sex/Marriage/Relationships... some tumblr kids makes me giggle... :)
I was looking at my dash again and there are two things that continuously amaze me and makes me giggle about some kids on tumblr most of the time:
1° to see all those post about being "forever alone" because you don’t have a relationship now.
2° posting things like:"when i get married i will have sex all day, all over the house"
Seriously kids, you are being delusional… because let’s be honest, most of you are really young, i mean under 20-25, so if you don’t have a relationship now is totally normal. Most people find the “right person” very late in their lives… And there’s no such thing as “the one”, because you can have a few true soulmates through your life… people even get married and divorced and then…they truly fall in love again… These things are not established… you don’t need to force anything… the real love is not painful, relationships are not complicated and if you are still by yourself is because you haven’t crossed the path with the appropriate person for you yet.. So stop looking, stop worrying about it, because if you are true to yourself and have patience and basically, just enjoy your life as an individual, eventually, at the most unexpected moment you’ll find yourself sharing your life with someone who truly loves You, because these things just happen (it happened to me). Meanwhile, try to know more about yourself, develop your self esteem and confidence, because alone or not, you’ll need them.
Now if you get married… yes, technically you can have sex whenever you want, but it’s not always like that. You are living with someone, you two have so much to do, to say, to share and to care about each other that having sex becomes just a "dressing" in the relationship. Everything becomes “romantic” instead, even going to the supermarket, cooking or do the housework together. You laugh, you talk, cry, play, cuddle, go out, ask for time alone, share long silences and make out together. Marriage is not only about sex. When you are married to someone, that person becomes your true family so the bond you have and the kind of love you develop, is beyond sex.
