The end of Oasis

do you have a story to tell about Let there be love?

Pulse Films are looking for Oasis Fans who have a special place in their heart for Let There Be Love to take part in a documentary film about the fans for the fans.
As you may or may not already know we have been looking for fans across the world to tell their stories and have had a great many responses, however we would very much like to get a story about how Let There Be Love has affected you and your life.
We are particularly looking for female contributors and couples to take part. Maybe the song got you through a particularly trying time in your life; maybe you have a love story with a bit of a twist.
If you have an interesting, unusual, strange or out of the ordinary story that relates to Let There Be Love, please get in touch at
oasis@pulsefilms.co.uk


Marco:
well this is interesting because with all the people I've known @ Oasis gigs then there was more hate than love... as Oscar Wilde said : the secret of staying young (song Stay young :) is never to have an excessive emotion... Their strong passions must either bruise or bend... ...they either slay the man, or themselves end. Shallow sorrows and shallow loves live on. The lovers and sorrows that are great are destroyed by their own plenitude. So about me with Oasis&love, only this little love to tell: http://www.oasisblues.com/2010/01/from-gigography-alcatraz-2005.html

Oasis made £ 13 millions in 2008

Manchester legends


To be where there's life
(Wembley)

New official figures show Oasis had a very lucrative final album with Dig Out Your Soul in 2008.
Recently filed accounts for Big Brother Records reveal Liam and Noel Gallagher earned £13million from record sales that year.
The two brothers were paid a salary of £144,000 and split a dividend of £3million between them.
It doesn't reveal their full earnings for the year because they also own Noise And Confusion Touring and Oasis Merchandising.
Noel is a regular Bizarre reader and pointed out that he hasn't spoken to Amorphous Androgynous since September last year and has not been demoing with Andy Bell and Gem Archer, like I told you earlier this week.
He has mainly been eating crisps, being a family man, watching Sky Sports News and following Manchester City.
Apologies, chief.

Noel & Gem joined Paul Weller gig

LONDON - Gem recently joined Paul Weller on stage for the launch of his new album 'Wake Up The Nation' with a storming set at the Relentless Garage in London.

Playing to a packed venue, Weller's set mixed new material with old classics as well as some of The Jam's back catalogue.

Gem took to the guitar during a rousing rendition of The Jam's anthem 'Start!', while the night was closed with an encore of 'Come On Let's Go' and 'Pieces Of A Dream'.

Gem is wearing Pretty Green Black Peacoat and a 5 BUTTON GRANDAD TEE.


Start!


Echoes round the sun

Rock's bigwigs joined forces for the smallest gig either of them have played in years.
Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher tore up this tiny London club - with a capacity of just 600 - to launch the latest offering from the Modfather.
Weller debuted a string of thumping new tracks from his Wake Up The Nation - on course for No1 on Sunday - on Wednesday night.
Then Oasis axe man Noel pitched up and the pair performed the Gallagher-penned Mucky Fingers
from 2005's Oasis 'Don't Believe the Truth', as well as Weller's own Echoes Round The Sun.
Gripping renditions of classics including Wild Wood and a final triumphant airing of vintage JAM hit Start concluded a special night.
And I wasn't the only one who enjoyed listening to the rock Lords.
Comic Alan Davies even queued up at the North London venue's stage door to get the great Weller's signature after the show.
If you want to experience a man on top of his game look out for Virgin Media's Music On Demand service in June, when the gig will be broadcast.

Meanwhile, Gallagher has been talking about the rough and tumble nature of his long-standing relationship with "The Modfather" -- saying he's a "nightmare" to go out on the town with.
In an interview with radio station Talk Sport, the former Oasis mainman said, "I guess Weller's my oldest friend, I suppose, and I don't mean the fact that he's, like, 50. There's an unwritten law that I never go out with him, he's a nightmare.
"He's hardcore -- if you go out with him, if you come home at all, there's bumps and bruises. There's been scuffles in the street and you've probably fallen out with him."

horrible defensive Inter to the final. Another penalty not given to Barça


BARCELONA - The usual complaining Inter in Champions League final versus Bayern Munich, after Barcelona-Inter 1-0, not enough for Barça, playing too slow.
Inter played in a totally defensive way (Barcelona keeping the ball 86% to 14%, never seen in my life, and I watched enough games...), a non-playing, as though they weren't on the pitch, really horrible to watch (but of course everybody will say that Mourinho is a genius...), and in the last minutes Inter defender Cordoba touched the ball with a hand in the box, and the referee gave the ball to Inter... nothing new... After 3 penalties not given to Chelsea, 2 to Barcelona, Inter goal in offside and all the rest before, it's clear there's something behind we can't know............
Even 1 single goal can make a huge difference... imagine all those -facts-, not fantasies, not given against Inter.
They even complained about Thiago Motta sent off, while he was already booked, and it was a clear red card, putting his hands on the face. Not to mention a red card not given to Inter (Chivu on Messi) and a goal unfairly not given to Barça.

I wish justice will be done in the end, after Inter stealing too much during this tournament, but, you know, money has got more power than justice..................
Now all the newspapers and websites in the world are gonna write about "heroic feats" by Inter, me all the contrary, after these games Inter are at the final in a lucky way, with huge help from some referees and putting up barricades. Not really a good show and fun...
Inter fans even wrote on Duomo cathedral, how idiots they are... Barcelona did well at the end of the match washing Inter dirty thieves with hydrants...

La solita Inter lamentosa va in finale di Champions contro il Bayern Monaco, dopo aver perso col Barcellona che ha giocato la partita in una maniera troppo lenta.
L'Inter catenacciara ha giocato in un modo totalmente difensivo (il Barça ha avuto un possesso palla di 86% a 14%, mai visto in vita mia, e di partite ne ho viste abbastanza...), col catenaccio, un non-gioco, come se non fosse in campo, veramente pessimo da vedere (ma ovviamente tutti diranno che Mourinho è un genio...), e negli ultimi minuti Cordoba ha toccato il pallone con una mano, e l'arbitro ha dato rimessa da fondo... niente di nuovo... Dopo 3 rigori non dati al Chelsea, 2 al Barcellona, il gol dell'Inter in fuorigioco e tutto il resto prima, è chiaro che c'è qualcosa dietro che noi non possiamo sapere...........
Persino 1 singolo gol può fare una differenza enorme... figuriamoci tutti quei -fatti-, non fantasie, non dati contro l'Inter.
Si sono persino lamentati per Thiago Motta espulso, quando era già ammonito, ed era una chiara espulsione quando è andato come un pollo a mettere le mani in faccia. Per non parlare di un'entrata da espulsione di Chivu su Messi, e un gol annullato ingiustamente al Barça.
Anche l'ammonizione a Julio Cesar c'era tutta, perchè nessuno ha notato che aveva già perso tempo prima, quindi l'arbitro l'ha ammonito per evitare tutto un finale di partita con perdite di tempo del portiere.
Via ora ai caroselli per le strade per i nuovi campioni d'Europa onestoni, eiaculatori precoci come quelli della Roma.

Mi auguro che alla fine sia fatta giustizia, dopo che l'Inter ha rubato a destra e a manca, ma come sapete, i soldi hanno più potere della giustizia..............
Ora tutti i giornali e siti del mondo parleranno di "impresa eroica" dell'Inter, io tutto il contrario, l'Inter dopo queste partite di Champions va in finale in maniera rocambolesca, fortunosa, con enormi aiuti arbitrali e facendo barricate. Non è proprio un bello spettacolo...

La vera perla della serata: gli idranti accesi dal Barça a fine partita, per bagnare gli interisti... lavatevi merde, ladri !!!
'Sti zozzi sporchi hanno persino imbrattato il Duomo, figure di merda a iosa, sono la parte vergognosa di Milano.

Lord don't slow me down + Boardwalk 1992 (bootleg)

bootlegs

Liam recently said there's nothing wrong in downloading albums from internet (anyway we always buy Oasis albums in the shops, we can't miss them) and Noel some years ago said something about bootlegs ("MP3 aren't something that I know a lot about, so I'd probably reserve my judgment until I found out more. I don't have a problem with bootlegs if it's something that's already been released. Different versions of songs that people know is fine by me. I mean, I am the Beatles Bootleg king! I've got so many that I don't even know where to start." Noel Gallagher)

Wonder Hall

some news:
Noel Gallagher is on next month's Q Magazine
Great review of the Royal Albert Hall show with some brilliant photos. Excellent coverage of Noels concerts. Includes a few brief interviews with fans. Also in this months issue: Paul Weller interview, Paul McCartney interview, Richard Ashcroft interview, etc.

14 years ago in these days Oasis were @ Maine Road...

Are you voting for the best English band?
now MUSE are first...aaaaarghhh... Oasis 2nd and Led Zeppelin 10th (!!!), so it's clear that is not a serious poll.

Noel Gallagher and Heidi Klum chose Lee denim

Star of the summer will undoubtedly be the come back of denim for jackets, shirts, skirts, pants and more, such as dungarees.Don’t have doubts on the appeal of dungarees, it can be stylish and sexy, especially when worn by the beautiful Heidi Klum. Ok… in these case it is difficult to compete. But you never know! The supermodel and mother of four children with a stunning body fell in love with denim dungarees signed Lee. Lee also for Noel Gallagher wearing a shirt of the brand for a performance at the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust gig. source: www.fashiontimes.it

preparing the party on 4 May @ Ac Milan training centre, Italian food :)
we'll drink a lot of beer :) to forget Ac Milan season's final result (maybe an useless 3rd place, anyway it's a Champions League place and at the start of the season in September anybody could imagine Ac Milan fighting for the championship, so it was quite positive)

Tonight Barcelona-Inter, the match of the year. I really want Barcelona to win at least 2-0 and go to the final.

ex Oasis lads on a double


Oasis stars Andy Bell and Gem Archer must have sore backsides from sitting on the fence.
Neither bass player Andy nor guitarist Gem have taken sides with either Liam or Noel Gallagher since the Oasis split last summer.
But Liam is about to get them into rehearsal for live dates later this year and Noel has also needed the lads for demo sessions.
So it's all pointing towards some difficult times when the inevitable clash of commitments happens.
A source said: "It's a tricky situation for Gem and Andy.
"They are working with both Liam and Noel. Liam's begun rehearsing tracks for his new project, while Noel has been doing demos of songs as well.
"It's great for Gem and Andy, though. They get paid twice, but it's bound to lead to trouble in the future."
I hear Noel has more than enough material for a solo album.
He's had house moving and family duties to take care of but once that has settled I'm sure he'll be back to work.
Especially after another taste of the action on stage with Paul Weller last week.
He has also been recording with dance producers Amorphous Androgynous.
Duo Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans are responsible for one of the best rave tracks of all time - 1991's Papua New Guinea, recorded under the name Future Sound Of London.
Last year the duo re-tooled Oasis single Falling Down to spectacular psychedelic effect.
A lot of people are excited to hear what tunes will emerge, me included.


The quiet ones (by Gem)
(tribute to Gem & Andy)

Marco:
at this point, they'll all come back together :)

Oasisblues supports the Conservative Party for the General Election on 6 May

YouGov poll result: David Cameron (Conservatives) 41%, Nick Clegg (Democrats) 32%, Gordon Brown (Labour) 25%.
Some simple thoughts about the forthcoming elections in Great Britain, I hope you can understand well what I mean though it's not my language.
In history, this great country had a lot to teach about politics to all the other countries in the world, Great Britain is an example. Every country has got something special, if one thinks about Italy probably food, fashion, football, holidays, some opera music, etc. would come to his mind. For me the best one in history, politics, music, etc. is Great Britain. And this is given by more years of experience in something, and Great Britain is a much older country than the very young Italy (in 2011 we are only 150 years old, though the ancient Latin world, which had the greatest empire, was more experienced than the British one, and when you see similar words in English and Italian languages, you can remember that in the whole world all the people are a bit Italian :)
About politics, British politics don't seem to be the best ones lately, with all the problems Labour party had, it was a failure. Similar story here in Italy. Besides, now there isn't that typical British "bipolarism", that was a positive thing.
So, if one wants this "change" (fortunately there's no Obama), he couldn't vote Labour again. As the result of this election is not sure (about who will be the winner), the worst result would be an "alliance government", Uk would seem Germany, I don't think British people would like that much... and it would be a weak coalition.
I've heard that some consider David Cameron of the Conservatives as a male version of Margaret Thatcher. Well this would be positive... Some say there were more unemployed people with the "Iron Lady", but it's totally untrue, in fact unemployment decreased with her reforms, kept by successive governments. It's always the same story, also here in Italy: the conservatives give reforms to the country, the "progressists" keep them (it seems a nonsense). But unfortunately progressists sometimes try to change things which shouldn't change.
Besides, I wonder how UK could have 2 Prime Ministers (Blair and Brown) from Scotland :-S
So I say: Great Britain back to the English (Cameron is from London).
By the way, I follow what the founder of Oasis, the Scottish Alan McGee, thinks about politics now: McGee had enough of the Labour by the year 2000 and declared more interest in football. In late 2009, McGee joined The Sun's campaign against Labour and in favour of the Conservatives, contributing an article to the October 1, 2009 edition of the paper in which, in a significant new development from his previous attacks on New Labour, he praised Conservative leader Cameron, saying of him "At least David Cameron looks like a leader."
The Gallaghers come from the "working class" world, and usually this part of our society used to vote for socialists, Labour, etc. But nowadays this is not true anymore, as statistics also report, they vote more for the Conservatives, because disappointed by socialists and because conservatives are giving new opportunities, ideas, etc., this is happening in Italy.
Besides, all the times Noel Gallagher attacks Blair, the Greens, etc. and says things as in this video below about politics (more police on the streets and a good politician is a rich one), or Liam is wearing military clothes, an Uk flag and a Nazi tattoo, etc., well they both don't really look like socialists... they seem nationalists, as in Quadrophenia film, a manifesto of mods culture, the director said the protagonist would have voted for the BNP, British National Party...
If during these weeks they'll talk about politics, probably they would say to vote for no-one (as Liam already said), so there wouldn't be anyone unhappy among their fans. I think this is a more honest attitude than that of almost all the musicians who attend bullshit as Live 8 and similar pacifist business events (for selling albums...) and then they have caviar & champagne in the backstage...
Here in Italy, as in other countries, the conservatives are blue, the socialists are red.
Oasisblues couldn't do anything but supporting the blues :)
That is also in the name: conserve... we conserve our good old music, Beatles & Oasis...

Noel: I can’t stand having me picture taken, it really, really nauses me up, I hate it


Noel Gallagher made his weekly appearance on Andy Goldstein’s Sports Bar last night (25 April) and spoke about the following:

Andy Goldstein: On last week’s show I said, ‘What have you got that’s exciting?’, and you said, ‘Something, but I can’t remember’...

Noel: “Yeah,
I went to go and buy a suit. I didn’t get one cos I went... you.. obviously no one else knows this, but you said, ‘Oh Id go and see a guy’ blah blah, which is not really the best recommendation I’ve ever had in my life is the fashion which is Andy Goldstein, ‘Go and see my guy’- whatever, and he said to me, ‘It’s a guy called Terence Trout’, right, now that’s not a real name, I said to him, I’m not having that, there’s nobody born with a name Terence Trout, anyway, I went to Trouty’s gaff, right, and unfortunately the minute I walked in I got a phone call, me alarm was going off on me handset and I had to leg it, so I’ve not been back, so I didn’t get the suit.”

“Dr Octogon” theme tune:

Andy Goldstein: I got a letter which says,’Hi Andy and Jason, and greetings, Dr Octogon, shame the Dr Octogon jingle was deemed below par, so I’ve composed one myself.’ I’ve not heard this....
Noel: “Is this from Our Kid? It’s not from our Liam?”

(Play new Dr Octogon jingle)

Noel: “This guy obviously doesn’t understand the fundamental laws of jingles – they’re supposed to be short and sweet.
That sounded like the drums of Burundi.... That’s rubbish.

Andy Goldstein: He’s sent in a CD cover with your face on the front as Dr Octogon (link here:
http://twitpic.com/1igyfd ) I’ll send it to you, I’ll keep it... it’s unbelievable!

Noel: “
Do me a favour – do not put it on your website!

Andy Goldstein: Too late, it’s on Twitter already! The picture’s like you have just been told what’s on the TV.

Noel: “I tell you what – every time I’m stopped in the street by people, you know like autograph hunters that carry pictures?, every single picture that I sign of myself I look absolutely miserable.” “I can’t stand having me picture taken, it really, really nauses me up, I hate it.”

Andy Goldstein: Are you going out to South Africa for the World Cup?

Noel: “I’m going.... well, I’ll tell you a story, I was gonna go but
my missus is pregnant, right?, which is a bit of a bungle, really, cos we should’ve waited until after the World Cup, you know what I mean?, so I was planning on going, not for the month but anyway, I said, ‘Look, if they get to the semis... you know, I’m gonna go.’, and she started laughing, she’s like, ‘Semi finals? haha Yeah, whatever! Yeah, you can go!” So if they get there I’m gonna go for the last kinda few days, but I’m not really planning on it, to be honest. To be quite honest, getting around that country’s going to be really, really difficult, I don’t think they’ve got the infrastructure to deal with it.

Man City

Noel: “I thought it all kinda went to plan yesterday, I thought Tottenham would get beat and I hoped we’d get a draw, but em, it’s all, if we win the next three games, it’s ours, but the big game is the Tottenham game, innit?, you know, but saying that, you’ve got to get past Villa, they’re still in it.” “I think next weekend decides everything – the Championship and 4th place, I think if we beat Tottenham we’ll do it because West Ham now haven’t got anything to play for, they’ll just be up for a kick about with Tevez.” “We don’t play Spurs til the Wednesday, we’ve got three games in that week, we play Villa Saturday, then Spurs on the Wednesday and then West Ham on the Sunday, it’s tough, plus
we’ve got the Faroe Islands reserve goalkeeper!” “To be honest, the only positive I can take out of it is that he was a Mark Hughes signing, and Mark Hughes has signed some pretty good players for us. I thought he was just some... well, I don’t know where I thought they got him from, but apparently Mark Hughes kinda spotted him.” (Were you surprised, with all the money they have that goalkeeper wasn’t one of the areas they covered?) “Well, the lad Taylor we got from Villa has had his cartilage taken out, so it’s all been about the last couple of weeks, hasn’t it? But, you know, to be honest if I was City I’d be on the phone to Birmingham and saying, ‘Look, if he doesn’t come back in the next 48 hours, you’re not getting him next season.’” (I don’t think you can do that.) “We can do anything!! We’re owned by the Sheikh!! He owns the world, right, so we can do anything!”

Title Race

Noel: “Well, Liverpool have got the big game on Thursday, haven’t they?, so hopefully that’ll go to extra time and they’ll all be resting players, I can’t see Chelsea... if Chelsea would have just scraped it today, maybe the confidence would have been gone, but I think... what was it?,5-0?, I switched it off after 3-0.... What? 7-0? Well, it’s in the bag, really, innit?” (I don’t think Liverpool will want to win the game) “Regardless of that, Liverpool are not good enough to beat Chelsea... Liverpool are not good enough to draw against Chelsea, not when they are going for the double, I just don’t see it happening. I had a mate of mine, right, he’s a Liverpool fan and he’s texting me like, today, that they beat Burnley, and he’s like, ‘We’re still in it!”, and it’s like, look, even if City slip up, you’ve still got to beat Tottenham, right, you’ve still got to get more points than Tottenham, City and Tottenham aren’t going to slip up, and then you’ve still got to pass Villa – it’s not gonna happen! It’s not gonna happen, I mean the best they can hope for is winning the Uefa Cup, innit? I’d say if they won the Uefa Cup, that would be a great season for them, considering what’s happened.”

His trip to the Emirates on Saturday:

Noel: “I went to the Emirates on Saturday, and I ended up getting tickets for the directors box, I tell you, just let me list the people who were sat on my row...
Fabio Capello, I didn’t speak to him, he looks a bit moody, do you know what I mean?, there was him, Stuart Pearce, Sven and his new bird – she’s not as nice as Nancy, but who is?, she’s alright, though, Terry Neill, Liam Brady, obviously all our Chief Executives and all that mob, and, this is the curve ball – Floella Benjamin! She’s Sven’s new bird! I was like, hang on a minute, England manager, Stuart Pearce – legend, yeah, all that, then, oh!, hello...” (Was she laughing by any chance?) “No, she was asleep like the rest of us. It was terrible, terrible, the best part of the game was when Adebayor came on, at least everyone livened up.”

Plans for this week:

Noel: “
I’ve got a wedding on Saturday, I’m going to be going, minus new suit. Then I’m getting my haircut, hopefully tomorrow.... eh, and then.... eh, I think that’s about, yeah, that’s it. You know what, last Sunday when I put the phone down and I thought, ‘Right, I’m gonna keep a diary of what I’ve done this week.’, and I kinda, I feel like I’m letting people down, I think like I should be telling people I walk around in a cape and a top hat, you know, but I kinda... I don’t do a great deal, I feel like I let people down when I’m in the queue at Waitrose, you know, buying stir-frys and stuff, you know what I mean?” (It’s not very rock n roll!) “No, it’s wok n roll!”

18 April:
His plans for the week: “I’m gonna get me hair cut this week and.. hang on a minute, I’ve got something to do this week... I’ve got something important to do this week.... dono... I can’t remember what I’m doing, I’m getting old, I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing...


Marco:
about photos: ahahaha paparazzi!! hilarious as usual...and as usual me all THE SAME :))
And I was also "about to have" my haircut for weeks ^_^
I miss Noel's blog...
"the drums of Burundi.... That’s rubbish" ahahahaha
"Do me a favour – do not put it on your website!”" ihihihi
aww the missus is pregnant :-* :-* :-*
"we should’ve waited until after the World Cup" ahahahaha
Fabio Capello is moody yeah, our quality of geniuses :)
I updated 2 recent posts:
adding a video and my memory about the final in 1982, 'cause Noel remembered his first tournament when he was a child in '74
and
adding the news about the film on Manchester City, featuring a comedian called Noel Gallagher :)

In this post the "Jimmy" photo could be referred to Jimmy of Osborne's Look back in anger (theatre) or Quadrophenia (film), both protagonists called Jimmy :), both similar to me :) as characters.

asking Uefa to do something for Barcelona-Inter


video Remuntada

good, Uefa is starting to listen to us: they put a BELGIAN referee...
2-0, this is the result Barcelona should at least score on Wednesday to beat Inter Milan (or 4-1, 5-2, 3-0, etc.) and go to the final in Madrid (probably versus Bayern Munich), as some months ago Barcelona-Inter 2-0

I'd like to know what Uefa thinks about Inter winning 3-1 versus Barcelona with a goal in offside and a penalty not given to Barça (after 3 penalties not given to Chelsea in Inter-Chelsea and Chelsea-Inter, and not to mention before, in other games with referees helping Inter). It must have been very intelligent the one putting a Portuguese referee, people who usually love very much the Spanish... (and Mourinho is Portuguese...they say he's even a business-friend of his, and Figo, Portuguese of Inter, is their new international ambassador...).
We ask Uefa to do something about this (from Belgium they accuse Inter of paying the referees in Champions League). Usual Inter fans insulting the black player Balotelli, and direct live on tv in the whole world Mourinho showed himself in all his greatness shouting to the only one Italian player, the black Balotelli (who is an adopted boy...), "son of a bitch".
Do you think it's all right? Even a blind man could see that there's something strange...
dear french President of Uefa, Michel Platini, you're not doing anything about all this? It's not really a good impression to the world...
Besides, a final without Barcelona wouldn't be a real final, as they're the best team in the world now, and don't deserve to be kicked out with that uncorrect way...

last Saturday, Barcelona players wore a t-shirt to ask fans (in Catalan language) to come to the stadium (though it wasn't necessary, it's already full) 45 minutes before the match to support the team. In Italy they saw this as a weak gesture of an "inferior team" (because there was also written "we'll sell our lives dearly"), but Inter didn't understand that it wasn't referred to Inter but to Barcelona fans.
INTER PRESIDENT MORATTI SAID: THESE T-SHIRTS ARE A WAY TO PUT PRESSURE ON THE REFEREE... MWAHAHAHAHAHA (while all the bullshit he says, it isn't...)

OaSiS, Solitude and Schopenhauer

Noel once said Oasis would end when Liam loses his hair... ^_^ Schopenhauer looks like an old Liam Gallagher :), same sideburns, similar eyes, Pretty Green well dressed :) and a bit crazy :)

Listen up
I believe in magic... :) one fine day I'm gonna leave you all behind... I'm sailing down the river alone...I don't mind being on my own.
The chorus is fabulous and Gem solo from minute 2:20 as well, class, quality, a gem.
"The more you have inside yourself, the less you need of other people. That's why superiority of spirit makes you rather unsociable."
(translated from Schopenhauer)
in fact I don't fuckin' need of anyone. Only the people who are influenced by others, they need other people. "It always seems to me you only see what people want you to see..." (the song Whatever, "and I'll sing the blues if I want")
It's beautiful to achieve the consciousness that loneliness is a value.

Noel Gallagher solo - Going Nowhere
here am I, getting lost and lonely, sad and only, why sometimes does my life feel so tame?
(I made a good cover on YouTube some years ago, quite easy, only a few chords)
other quotes about solitude:
"To the intellectually gifted man, solitude gives 2 advantages: first of all, being with himself, and besides, not being with other people.
Solitude is the destiny of all the great minds: an always deplored destiny, but chosen as the lesser of two evils"
(translated from Schopenhauer)
solitude and the other evil is Liam :)

Stop the clockS
"The one who's got right ideas among confused people, he's like one with a working clock in a city where all the clocks are wrong. He's the only one knowing the right time, but what's the use? Everybody's following the others one, even those who know the right time..."
(Schopenhauer)
That was the meaning of the word "oasis", an isolated place in a desert.
"As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means" (Camus).

Noel Gallagher: I was Italy's lucky mascot at World Cup 2006

Noel Gallagher looks back on his most memorable World Cup moments, including Italia '90, the Brazil kit, and why he was Italy's lucky charm at the 2006 finals.
Marco:
Lovvvvvvvvve thisssss!!!!!!! cheeeeerssssss
Pavarotti !!! :)))
"his missus just happened to be there" mwahahahaha
Del Piero "made me wear the same clothes" ahahaha
He remembers the World Cup in '74, me Italy World Champion '82 :)

Former Oasis man also reveals 'secret' about New Order's 'World In Motion'.
Noel Gallagher has claimed he was a lucky mascot for Italy during their successful FIFA World Cup campaign in 2006.
Discussing his memories of the tournament on BBC's Football Focus programme
, the former Oasis man revealed Azzurri player Alessandro Del Piero - a friend of Gallagher - believed he was a lucky charm for the side at the tournament.
The superstition started when Del Piero scored the winner for Italy in the semi-final of the tournament against Germany and ran towards Gallagher to celebrate.
"I was sat beside his wife. His wife reckons he was coming over to blow kisses at her, but what's actually happened is he's seen me and his wife happened to be there," Gallagher joked.
"He then gets it in his head that I'm his lucky mascot, so he said: 'You'll have to come to the final'. He made me wear the same clothes," he added.
Gallagher also claimed that New Order's 'World In Motion' - released to coincide with the 1990 World Cup - wasn't originally supposed to be a football song.
"They didn't write it specifically for that, I know for a fact it was just a song they had lying round and added a few words to," he said.
"I don't care what anybody says, the New Order song isn't really a World Cup song."

New Order, World in motion

1982, Italy-Germany 3-1
Marco: one of my first football memories when I was a child is the 1982 final, Italy World Champion. I was on a red table in the kitchen (I still have that table :) and our house porter was shouting at every goal, and I was so happy also because Marco Tardelli was my idol. Unforgettable the way he exulted (minute 2:23) (1st goal: Paolo Rossi, 3rd Altobelli)

Saint Mark church-Manchester City birthday. + Film about City

Manchester City FC and Endemol Sport announced the forthcoming release of a landmark feature film charting a year in the life of one of the Premier League’s most dynamic clubs.

'Blue Moon Rising' follows a group of Manchester City fans throughout the 09/10 season, capturing the emotions every football fan feels along the way.

From the initial hope and optimism following the takeover by Sheikh Mansour of Abu Dhabi and the ecstatic disbelief of a 4-2 win at high-flying Chelsea, to the depths of despair after a last-minute derby defeat, the cinema quality ‘Red’ cameras were there to capture it all.

Made by leading sports media company Endemol Sport, the film takes the viewer from the terraces to the boardroom with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the club’s new owners. Among the fans featured in the film is former Oasis star Noel Gallagher, who appears on camera to talk about his life-long passion for the club.

'Blue Moon Rising' will be directed by BAFTA and Cannes Grand Prix-winning writer and director Stewart Sugg and produced by Nick London, one of the UK’s foremost documentary producers with credits including Sky One’s BAFTA award-winning series ‘Ross Kemp In Afghanistan’.

The film will debut on the big screen in summer 2010 with theatrical distribution handled by Endemol in partnership with Robert Mitchell, former UK Head of Buena Vista International.

Global TV and DVD distribution will be handled by Endemol Worldwide Distribution.

"Blue Moon Rising reinforces Manchester City’s standing as the most fascinating story in the world of football. We wanted to give football fans around the world a unique insight into the club and its future by getting them close to the action in this unique year. It will be a lasting testimony to one of the most exciting years in Manchester City’s history". (Manchester City's Brand and Marketing Officer David Pullan)

Gregg Oldfield, Managing Director of Endemol Sport, adds: “Our aim is to create something on an epic scale that will capture the beautiful game as never seen before. 'Blue Moon Rising' will combine cinematic production value and breathtaking footage with the very real human drama that defines the club and its fans. This promises to be an entertaining, intimate, and funny film that reveals a passion for football rarely seen before on the silver screen.”


Manchester City was originally called Saint Mark (church, West Gorton), so for me Marco is even more special, and the team was born in 1880 (I dunno the day), so this year is its 130th birthday.
In Italy 25 April is Saint Mark day and it's a bank holiday (national holiday), besides Saint Mark is also special here because it's Venice saint with a lion as symbol, as for England.

today: Arsenal-City

This year we won 3-0 against Arsenal in Carling Cup and there was Mark Hughes telling the French Wenger to fuck off ahaha and 4-2 in Premier League, I fucking hate Arsenal.

"Fuck off Wenger and his socialist football".
(Noel Gallagher)

ahahaha
