Songs for 'We Men'

Inspite of desperate attempts by a dear friend at carrying out a brazen gender assassination attempt on yours truly, the manhood flourishes. Perhaps the only thing non-abstract about my existence is that. Seek .. and thou shalst find.

Anyways there are two songs I have been listening to lately. The first one particularly deserves a strong mention, dedicated to all men out there.

1. 'Just like you imagined' by Nine Inch Nails. The soundtrack for my beloved movie 300 ( read this, this and this ). God what a song... unfortunately no lyrics but well its just like one imagines!. Those drums make blood rush in all hitherto numb and forgotten corners of my body. The score is so inspiring that I honestly feel like slitting a few Persian throats even as I feel the cold hard metal pierced in my chest. Real men. Born out of real women.

2. 'Poison' by Alice Cooper. One band which I completely missed growing up was Alice Cooper and I regret it. There are two lines in this song which deserve a mention on a post for men. 'Your skin so wet, black lace on sweat'. Its just the uncanny weird way in which he sings. Amazing song, that apart.

Two completely different thoughts. I guess the pristine manifestation of both in one frame is the classic black knight in the shining armour myth.

Why is 300 such a guy-movie? Why do men enjoy blood & gore so much?

Oh well, I guess I loved 300 so much that I saw it twice post that. Just for the final scene when he prepares to hurl the spear at Xerxes and the narrative that follows.

And no, I still don't take that virility tag into consideration.
