In my downtime, I enjoy singing with my friends band at the bars they regularly play at, and one night we chose to do a different song. Afterwards, we were asked about it, so I explained the song and it’s translation to those who asked, and ever since then, we are always asked to do it.
Out of all the good Macedonian songs out there that I know, I managed to introduce Studeni Noze and their fairly genius song, “50 Marki/Coca-Cola.”
If you haven’t heard it, and I’m certain you most likely have not, it’s a song that in a nutshell, is about a man who learns from 100 dollar hookers. He takes a woman home from a bar, the sex breaks the couch, and she takes 50 marki ($100 from him.) Later on, a woman wants to have sex with him (opa-iha) and he tells her, “sweet sister sex isn’t free” and charges her 50 marki.
The music is very catchy, and honestly as silly as the song sounds, it’s actually quite genius.
However, there are songs like, “pusti kosi,” “visoki stikli,” and “od ovoj den” that are even better, but I managed to locally introduce a song about learning from hookers.
God bless America.
I’ve provided the link if you wish to expose yourself to the earworm from Macedonia.
….still waiting on that assbag former friend of mine to pay me back the $400 he owes me.
I said I wouldn’t sue you. You said you’d pay me back, and I have all the time in the world. Do you really think that I’ll eventually just give up? Not gonna happen. That’s not how this works. At this rate, I’m about to put your info out for the world to annoy you.
I’m not a nice person. I used to be, but you ruined that.
So, Janko, about that money that I gave you to do a job, and you didn’t do it, and ran off with the money to do something that you lied to me about.
Can I have that? Do you even have a job, or are you now just mooching off your relatives since I’m not there for you to mooch off of?
The laptop, the car stereo, the tires– I helped you with close to $2000. The least you can do is pay back the $400 I gave you for a job, you little thief.
His idea was block all the contact routes, but you forget I have your phone number too.
Tell you what, we are probably taking another euro trip in the fall. If I don’t hear from you, I’ll just stop by.
Don’t believe me?
Money please. Now.
…. to defeat the Huns! (If that’s how you finished my subject title, I automatically like you!)
Anyways, first things first. “Subject Alpha,” is free, once again, until Tuesday, so if you’ve been wanting to read it, now’s the time to get it! It won’t be free again for a few months. Not my rules, it’s Amazon’s. I would gladly drop it to free for good, considering my next book, “The Black Summer Rain: After Midnight” will be out soon…
That is if I could get to work. See, I rarely watch television, and when I do, its usually shows or movies I have already seen, like “charmed.” The reason is, if I find a new show I like, I will binge watch it.
And damn it, I have discovered, “Orange is the New Black.”
God help me.
For those who don’t know, I spent five days in county for something I wish to not discuss. Its in the past, and those closest to me know the real circumstances. So, don’t assume.
Firstly, the women I met there are some of the nicest, loveliest women I have met. Some shouldn’t have been there, and some should have. Some there just made mistakes, and were quite accepting of what had happened, and let me tell you, they helped me. I hadn’t ever been to jail, and I really should not have been there (the justice system isn’t as wonderful as you may think), so I didn’t know the first thing about what to expect. Thankfully, those women were there. They made my time bearable, but that’s a story for another day.
OITNB is the most unrealistic show I have ever seen, but man is it entertaining. Although, it’s hard to find a likable character. Characters I thought I would like, I wound up despising, and in return, characters I started out not liking, I wound up liking (crazy eyes, red and pensatucky!)! I won’t go into details, but what they did to pornstache.. .. the wrong thing done for the right reason is still the wrong thing. I find myself cussing that show more than I’ve ever cussed a presidential debate.
So, I am nearly done, and soon the new season will be out, and with any luck, I’ll have the new book finished completely.
If I could stop watching this show.
… don’t even get me started on “the walking dead.”
Happy birthday to my youngest clone. He’s a strong child who has survived asshole kids (seriously, our neighborhood has some asshole kids) and a Macedonian abandonment. Luckily for me, he hasn’t mentioned him once. That’s the best part about children. They are resilient.
So happy eleventh birthday, my youngest sprout. I dedicate Mulans, “I’ll make a man out of you,” to you on this day!
Edit: to anyone who says this is somehow a horrible song to dedicate to my son, please butt out. Its an inside joke, and trust me my son loves the song. Unless you live here, you won’t get it, and will assume the worst. I don’t want or need your input on that.
