i useta be a "cutter" too then i got the guts to put the knife down and pick up a guitar and a 4 track recorder and a microphone and dump the pain into that badboy...then i found a band and let my demons run loose...yer 20 years old...which is almost too old to be a cutter still...and sometimes it's time to throw away the knife...the shroud...even the Joy Divison records if that's what it takes...until you can figure out that Joy Division sounds better driving down dirt roads in the country as you pass horses, wild life and blaze scolding setting suns...

Life is all myth of sissy-fuss...ya push a rock up a mountain and find it back at the bottom the next morning...don't think of it as moving stone, instead think of it as building your soul for a better world...

Perhaps we are of the blackness and come from the dirt only to shine and crumble back into blackness...Good...if you think you got it bad just think about kids born 20 years from now...their grandparent's silent films will be talking movies like the Hunger Games and Twilight...and yeah, we put our music on that soundtrack, because if anybody NEEDED to get turned onto GREAT Music and be saved...it's the hard core fans of that Movie...

20 years old isn't a time when you wanna be taking Life that serious...there is plenty of time for you to get Kafkaesque, attend funerals again and worry about taxes, and whatever else really serious and tedious people concern themselves with...

Take care of your health best ya can
and take notes...keep a journal of notes...instead of being so opinionated at 20...learn from old books, old music, old films, architecture, culture, travel, scents, art, learn about Australia,  Helsinki, the corruption that lead us to where we currently shop...

anybody can wipe their dick off on a dirty towel and throw it in the ring...why take such a heaven and wipe your ass with it when you yourself can become a golden walking fuck*awesome book?

You can call the suicide hotline or get busy recreating yourself.

You are a ONE TIME FIRE.  ONCE.

Don't Throw it Away...We're all up against the Wall, up against the gun, in the eye of the needle and sometimes with a lot more bad days than we get dealt the good...

Lots of people go through a great deal of hell, draw a shit hand by the age of twenty...but if you ain't terminal man, shake a fuckin' bearcat leg...i don't really have THE answer...all i know is that yer a good kid, yer young...and the world is your dirty rockand roll hideaway...and i would LOVE it if you stuck around...we need all the teeth, guts and rockand roll spirits we can get to help us get through this strange dream we are having together....i think when we feel the most hopeless it should bring out our gnashing sweet anger reach...get us in touch with the Home of the blues which is All of ours...Not theirs...


Many Modern People make the world an unwholesome place
but why so quick to jump the gun son?

To split right now would be akin to buying a ticket without taking the ride.
20 years old is no judge of sweet fuck all...you haven't even got yer tongue wet yet
no matter what you've been through

ya gotta stick around for the good things in Life...and there are many...don't judge your life's book by your current surroundings...that is unfair and unholy on yer part...ya gotta shake a leg, whip out yer wings and ramble down the road...goodness doesn't just land on ya...anything worth Living you earn in some fashion or another...

Not only all that, but if ya split now...you'll miss the best Rockand Roll Show that is yet to have taken place...when the New B.R.M.C. Tour hits the Road and the sister lands...and you'll miss the new Record...what a sad shame that would be...

I gotta lotta dead friends that would have loved to hear the new Mark Lanegan with Nick Cave...but they gave up before they ever began to let themselves feel good for once...don't make the same dreary decision...

Put your bad ideas in the trunk and hit the ignition on your design and road of Life...

We are Loved even when we feel it the least...

Instead of being selfish and breaking and blacking many hearts...

Find the fucking Light inside of yours bro

Good Health and Good Love to You

iAN / BRMC

P.S.

We look forward to seeing you on the New Tour

keep the faith brother

and remember

suicide's easy...what happened to...

get your shit together

put on yer black leather*

Let the blues keep ya strong, baw*
