KISS Hear New Songs In Full Now!






Long Way Down
(Paul Stanley, Tommy Thayer)

Gypsy, has eyes that hide the secrets no one sees
Easy, you smile until she brings you to your knees
Stick around 'til you get the truth
Taste blood when you get your proof (oh yeah)
Find that you've never understood
Give it all, but it's meant for good (oh yeah)

And I know this life makes fools of wise men, thieves, and kings (yeah)
When we lose we live our lives like puppets on a string
Close your eyes and you'll lose your soul
Do your time, but there's no parole from here
No chance when the end is near
Hear the words that you never thought you'd hear (yeah)
Life whispers in your ear

[Chorus]
It's a long way down
When ground starts comin'
I tried to tell you, but you would not listen
It's a long way when you fall from the top

Yeah!

[Guitar Solo]

Build it all on a bed of lies
Standing tall 'til you realize you're here
Look away, but you can't pretend
Gonna pray for a way when the end is near
Life whispers in your ear

It's a long way down
When the ground starts comin'
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way
Such a long, long way
It's a long way down
When the ground starts comin'
I tried to tell you
But you would not listen
It's a long way
Such a long, long way
A long way down
A long way down
When you fall from the top

All For The Love of Rock & Roll
(Paul Stanley)

Yeah, yeah
Mmmmmm
Whoo

[Verse]
I was just another child going wild in the city
Just gettin' by on a dream
I was thinking life was gonna be so pretty,
It was pretty mean
Yeah

I hit the road with no expectations
Just leaving where I'd been
I didn't care about the fame or the money
Show me a place to play and I'm gonna go

[Chorus]
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll
Hear my music in the air, and I'm losing control
I don't care what you heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll

[Verse]
I hitched a ride on a trip going nowhere
Got fifty bucks and I'm fine.
Ain't a lot of dough but when you know the feeling.
Well it feels alright, alright

When you're finished with the band and some honey grabs your hand, yeah
You get to thinking you might
That's when you notice there's a ring on her finger
That's when she tells you that she's single tonight

[Chorus]
Well it's all for the love of rock and roll
Hear my music in the air, and I'm losing control
I don't care what you heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll

I've got it made when I hit the stage at quarter to nine (yeah)
Watch them dancin' in the haze and the band's really pumping
You feel the rush and that's all it's about
I'm in for life and there's no getting out of the way

[Guitar Solo]

Yeah
All I want...
All I need...

Yeah, 'cause it's all for the love of rock and roll
Hear my music in the air, and I'm losing control
I don't care what you heard, I don't care what you're told
'Cause it's all for the love of rock and roll
All for my love of rock and roll...

Alan Moore's Essay: Sexism in Comics

I "borrowed" the following scans and text from mechanicaljewel at Live Journal.com. I fondly recall the comic, "The Daredevils" from which they are lifted, it featured reprint comics and new editorial and comic-strip material, notably "Captain Britain". I thought it deserved to go 'viral'. To read the text click on each scan for the larger version.

Invisible Girls and Phantom Ladies: How far have we come?

Back in 1983, Alan Moore wrote a 10-page article on the portrayal of women in comics and the presence/lack thereof of female creators. It was serialized in Marvel UK's The Daredevils #4-6.

It's really interesting to see things like this, written 25 years ago, and to address the question 'how far have we really come?'










British Marvel Apes Colour Pictures

These images were printed on the back cover of Marvel's "Planet of the Apes" comic which was published in the U.K. from October 1974 to February 1977 when it was merged into the "Mighty World of Marvel" weekly comic. The U.K. Apes comic also included some interior black and white text and photo features about the Apes T.V. series that were never published in the U.S. edition of the magazine. I will scan and post these extra text features at a later date...
