“Band on the Rocks”, A Thought Process

March 18, 2008

Last night, my roommate had a party at the flat and so was I a part of it. Had a nice time seeing all the drunk people (it’s always fun, ain’t it?), enjoyed chatting away with everyone while listening to some amazing trance and chomping on “bobbies”. And thank goodness the party’s date coincided with me splitting from my band. It was a terrible day and all this helped me getting over it.

After months of jamming, playing at Moodi, reaching the finals of Youthopia and being praised by the judge by himself on how we managed the highest points, I notice that there was some particular tension in the band. The lead guitarist was turning the band against me because we weren’t playing classic. And he succeeded, just when I had told the bassist I was about to leave. But could he convince himself? He was scared, not only when thinking about it all but even while talking to me. Scared to even look at me because he knew he had done the wrong thing.

How can people not believe in themselves? How can they be so selfish? How can they not grow? How can they assume that their knowledge is absolute and not be aware that their attitude will make them obsolete?

Confusion about oneself leads them to be vulnerable to be taken advantage off. So is it the others mistake if you can be convinced easily? Human nature tends to convince the person standing in front of you. Therefore, it means you shall not be able to survive in the outside world.

Just because you want to do things your way doesn’t mean you go ahead with it. Team spirit is lacking in you buddy. Build it or you won’t survive. Today you might be enjoying doing your way. You’ll know what happens when someone else does that to you.

You only know this? Got a problem with learning that? Yes? Sorry buddy, that is one thing you’re going to regret. If you can’t learn something new just because you’ve being doing something else for the past few years, you’re doomed.
