Song of the Day: Changes by Tesla

tesla2

Changes

Changes, time’s makin’ changes in my life
Rearrangin’, can’t seem to stop the hands of time
I remember, I was so young, I was much too young to see
Now I’m older, growing older, and I see things differently
Oh can’t you see, it’s changin’ you and me

[Chorus:]
Time’s makin’ changes, time’s makin’ changes in my life
Time’s rearrangin’, changin’ you and me

Faces, strange faces cloud my mind
Empty traces, make it hard for me to find
Somewhere in the distance, is there someone who awaits
For that moment I am taken over by the hands of fate
Can’t you see, the world is changin’ me

[Chorus] – yeah yeah

Nothin’ ever stays the same, it’s always gonna change
I’m on my way, yeah yeah

[Solo]

Changes, time’s makin’ changes in my life
Rearrangin’, always changin’, can’t seem to stop the hands of time
Can’t you see, it’s changin’ everything

[Chorus] – yeah yeah

Oh all these changes

blood-and-money

Another great book by Thomas Thompson. This is the true story of the murder of Joan Robinson Hill and her family’s quest for justice. Her husband, Dr. John Hill, was tried for her poisoning death, but his trial ended in a mistrial. A new trial was scheduled, but Hill was murdered at his front door. Or at least, it is presumed that it was Hill who was murdered. There are rumors that he faked his death (had someone else murdered in his place) so he would not face another murder trial and his troubles with the IRS. It is truly an intense, heartbreaking story, which the author writes so well about. He did a lot of research and well-thought out. I enjoyed this book, and recommend it to others who read true crime.

Book Review: Death Sentence by Joe Starkey (The List Murders)

death-sentence

I was very anxious to read this book, and it was worth the time. It is a really good book – very well written with well-defined characters. It was obvious that a lot of research went into this book. I knew the basics of this crime, but not specifics. It is the story of The List family, who were murdered by John List – husband, father, and son to the victims. There is a lot of background material on John List, to show what made him tick. But still, he knew exactly what he was doing and planned every aspect. This book made the victims come alive, to always be remembered. My heart broke for these victims that only wanted love from their killer. I still remember the bust of John List that was presented on AMW. It gave me chills when List was arrested and the resemblance was so close. It is a great book. I highly recommend it.

Song of the Day: Dream On by Aerosmith

Dream On

All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn
Isn’t that the way
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
Sing with me, if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on,
And dream until your dream comes true
Dream on [7x]

Song of the Day: Rock You Like A Hurricane by The Scorpions

Rock You Like A Hurricane

It’s early morning
The Sun comes out
Last night was shaking
And pretty loud
My cat is purring
And scratches my skin
So what is wrong
With another sin

The bitch is hungry
She needs to tell
So give her inches
And feed her well
More days to come
New places to go
I’ve got to leave
It’s time for a show

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane

My body is burning
It starts to shout
Desire is coming
It breaks out loud
Lust is in cages
Till storm breaks loose
Just have to make it
With someone I choose

The night is calling
I have to go
The wolf is hungry
He runs the show
He’s licking his lips
He’s ready to win
On the hunt tonight
For love at first sting

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane (Are you ready baby?)
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane (Come on, come on baby)
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Rock you like a hurricane

It’s early morning
The Sun comes out
Last night was shaking
And pretty loud
My cat is purring
And scratches my skin
So what is wrong
With another sin

The night is calling
I have to go
The wolf is hungry
He runs the show
He’s licking his lips
He’s ready to win
On the hunt tonight
For love at first sting

Here I am, rock you like a hurricane (Are you ready baby?)
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane (Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on)
Here I am, rock you like a hurricane
Here I am

Song of the Day: Sing Sorrow by KoRn

korn1

Sing Sorrow

In the deepest part of me
Like an unknown enemy
I was never meant to fight
Little seed of purity
And you don’t belong to me
Still I’m blinded by its light
DON’T TRY TO MAKE IT RIGHT!

Does anybody know bout love
Does anybody care bout God
If you’re with me sing sorrow

Penny for your thoughts I fear
we need a little help round here
If you’re with me sing sorrow

When the stars don’t ever heal
Do you fear you’ll never feel?
What it is to be at peace
YOU’RE CRAVING A RELEASE!

Does anybody know bout love
Does anybody care bout God
If you’re with me sing sorrow

Penny for your thoughts I fear
we need a little help round here
If you’re with me sing sorrow

I don’t understand here
Why God would do me this way.
I lived a life
Was always good
The one thing I need to take away

TO TAKE WAY
THE ONE THING (TAKE AWAY)
THE ONE THING (TAKE AWAY)
THE ONE THING (TAKE AWAY)
THE ONE THING (TAKE AWAY)
just take away
THE ONE THING (TAKE AWAY)
one thing to take away
THE ONE THING (TAKE AWAY)
one thing to take away
AWAY AWAY

It took away my world
all it left was pain
and all this time was for nothing

Does anybody know about love
Does anybody care about God
If you’re with me sing sorrow

Penny for your thoughts I fear
we need a little help round here
If you’re with me sing sorrow

Song of the Day: Black by Trivium

Black

Decomposing in this worthless tomb,
Nothingness inhaled, I am consumed.
Starving for the ending to this doom,
We the parasite, our death overdue.

Black!
It’s opening.
Oh, how it stares!
So deep,
Into the soul,
So deep into the soul!

Black!
Downfall of decimation!
Black!
It tears apart the night!

Termination sits across my cell,
Waiting patiently to unleash Hell.
Frothing at the mouth, it’s hunger tells,
Of the feast I’ll soon become, my soul melts.

Black!
It’s opening.
Oh, how it stares!
So deep,
Into the soul,
So deep into the soul!

Black!
Downfall of decimation!
Black!
It tears apart the night!

Oh!

Rain, rain down,
On, this hopeless, scorched abyss.
Rain down,
Termination’s, all we’re owed.
Rain down, rain, rain down!

Black!
It’s opening.
Oh, how it stares!
So deep,
Into the soul,
So deep into the soul!

Black!
Downfall of decimation!
Black!
It tears apart the night!

Song of the Day: It Haunts Me by Royal Bliss

Royal Bliss

It Haunts Me

Hey, mister, go get all your feelings
Yeah, they come from the factory
Stay within no hither, turn the pages
As they fall from the magazine

Some people don’t get it out of road
With all your philosophies
Time ain’t a bottle spin, black and white
For everyone in the world to see

Your mind is far away
I see your ghost, it haunts me

So tired of the separation, [?]
Yeah, they call in anxiety
Take it to the heart, ’til you feel it grow
And then you’re back for my apathy
You’d stand me if you could, baby
I can tell me by the stares that you turn on me

I love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me

I love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me
I love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me
I will love your mind, I’m far away
I see your ghost it haunts me
It haunts me, it haunts me, it haunts me, it haunts me, it haunts me

Song of the Day: Lightning Crashes by Live

Lightning Crashes

Lightning crashes, a new mother cries
Her placenta falls to the floor
The angel opens her eyes, the confusion sets in
Before the doctor can even close the door

Lightning crashes, an old mother dies
Her intentions fall to the floor
The angel closes her eyes, the confusion that was hers
Belongs now, to the baby down the hall

Oh now feel it comin’ back again
Like a rollin’ thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin’ from the center of the earth again
I can feel it

Lightning crashes, a new mother cries
This moment she’s been waiting for
The angels open her eyes, pale blue colored iris
Presents the sun and puts the glory out to hide, hide

Oh, now feel it comin’ back again
Like a rollin’ thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin’ from the center of the earth again
I can feel it

Book Review: Death Trap by M. William Phelps

death-trap

Jessica Bates McCord plotted and killed her first husband, Alan Bates, and his wife, Terra. She got her second husband, Jeff McCord to help as well.

Excellent book! It is my first read of M. William Phelps and I am now hooked! The book was very well written and with good detail. It was not overly wordy or boring in any way. I could picture the events easily from what he wrote. He wrote a lot of background material, which I do love. And he paid a lot of attention to the victims. Jessica Bates McCord is evil. There is no other word for her that covers it all. I do believe that both Jeff and Jessica should be on death row.

If you have never read any of his books and you read true crime, do yourself a favor and read his books.
