National Heroes Day

Hello! Scroll And Spin readers, hope your doing fine and today we will talk about heroes or hero since here in the Philippines celebrates National Heroes Day so I will ask you a question, Who is your hero? But first let us define what heroes or hero meant.

According to Webster Dictionary hero is….

"Admire for courage and great deeds, chief male character in drama or fiction, heroine is a female hero"

But for me the real definition of a Hero is giving oneself & never asks in return.

Here’s Wallflowers with the song “Heroes”

Lyrics of Heroes Version of the Wallflowers

Words and Music by David Bowie and Brian Eno

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever.

We can be Heroes, just for one day.

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing, nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I remember standing, by the wall
And the guns, shot above our heads
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever

Then we could be Heroes, just for one day

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
Just for one day

Before I end my entry for today, here’s a statement from Mr. Raimund Marasigan concerning the Eraserheads Reunion Concert on August 30, this statement is taken from cambiolist

dear everybody

after much ado. the eraserheads concert is most definitely pushing

philip morris and its brands have pulled out from the concert. but
another company is taking over the production. the turn over started
yesterday and they have already started work on the site in the fort.
so you can check.

there are good news and bad news.

unfortunately its no longer free. all the long winded registration
procedures in the red nation site is now void.

the good news is that the age limit is now 12 years old (for safety
reasons)and tickets will be sold so you dont have to wait for
confirmation and what not.

the official announcement and ticketing details will come out in major
newspapers and on the radio on tuesday.

these are the only details i know for now so no need to email me. im
just the drummer.

btw. i just got home from the last rehearsal. the band is cooking. we
will see you all on the 30th.
