Abu Hurairah said that he heard the Messenger of Allah , peace be upon him, say to Thaubaan, "How will you be when the nations will call each other upon you as those who are dining call each other to their dish?" Thaubaan asked, "...O Messenger of Allah, will that be because we will be few?" He said, "No, rather at that time you will be many, but you will be like the froth scum on the surface of a body of water and Allah the Exalted will remiove from the hearts of your enemies their fear of you and al-wahn will be cast into your hearts." "And what is al-wahn, O Messenger of Allah?" The Prophet, peace be upon him, said, "Your love for the world and your hate for fighting."

The world is fickle and the eye is attached to that which it sees and desires. Cool Cobain, renting out angst in buckets, is formed entirely from guitar and green striped t-shirt, and all worshippers seek to find where they can imitate their 'idol' and search high and low for comfort in identification. The "business" is eager to help, and entombed the sweater in various locations to please the morbid glee of the pilgrimage of those underlings of the lower floors. The media pretends innocence in these matters and so we follow the idea with growing cynicism. Cobain's death could have only been bettered if he had only worn that sweater. Still it is a cool sweater.

With "The Passenger" Antonioni realises the perfection in the utter negation of any semblance to a core truth as seen by the observer. As the Nicholson character ponders taking on the role of the dead 'mystery-man' we follow and sense the inevitable conclusion to his actions. And we are left to ask what difference does it make? The dead man in the hotel room is finalised in the Nicholson character, Locke, but truly already dead is that character who is a man adrift in a world he finds no meaning. His death, or too be correct, the death of his-self becomes the logical extension to both meaning and sense. And Antonioni brings us full circle with the roll of the 'tennis ball' but the problem is by then most have taken their eye of the ball. Pity.

You raise the blade, you make the change - You rearrange me till I'm sane
Rulers make bad lovers - You better put your kingdom up for sale
It's a town full of losers - And I'm pulling out of here to win
As you lie there naked - Like a body in a tomb - Suspended animation - As I slip into your room
My brain hurt like a warehouse - It had no room to spare - I had to cram so many things to store - Everything in there
For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself - For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
You put your hands into your head - And your smiles cover your heart
To find a queen without a king - They say she plays guitar and cries and sings - La la la la
I've been waiting here for so long - And all the time that passed me by - It doesn't seem to matter now
The nights are hot and black as ink - I can't sleep and I lay and I think - Oh God, I need a drink of cool cool rain
