The Fermi Paradox

Where are all the aliens? This big question was posed by Enrico Fermi back when Pop Punk's grandfather was walking 10 miles in the snow to get to school. Uphill. Both ways.

The idea being that, if there are so many stars in the known universe that could possibly be home to other galaxies with other planets in them, then there must possibly be another planet or planets out there that could possibly be home to intelligent life. And if this is the case, why haven't we seen any aliens?

Music VIdeos: "Villain Alcoholic" by Direct Hit



"I can’t remember when I
Last saw you when you weren’t drunk or high as a kite
I wonder if you could fly, would you clip my wings?
And watch as I died for whatever your consciousness brings?

We were kids growing up on the same block,
Where we hid stolen liquor by the bus stop
Took a while, now you’re called an alcoholic
Even though we dialed in a metabolic
Rate to soar through the stratosphere and now we’re
Far apart, but you might as well have disappeared
TV screen every morning when I wake up
Make a scene like a couple in a break up

Got a room with a floor and a mattress,
Nothing more than expense and an address
Looking up now and then hoping you’ll come home

I can’t remember when I
Last saw you when you weren’t drunk or high as a kite
I wonder if you could fly, would you clip my wings?
And watch as I died? And sing for a sincere goodbye?

Got a room with a floor and a mattress,
Nothing more than expense and an address
Looking up now and then hoping you’ll come home

I can’t remember when I
Last saw you when you weren’t drunk or high as a kite
I wonder if you could fly, would you clip my wings?
And watch as I died? And sing for a sincere goodbye?

I don’t want to tell you that you’re fine
I don’t wanna tell you everything’s great
It’s not, it’s fucked
We’re stuck, out of luck
How else can I say that this just sucks?"

People seem to be unclear about what this song is actually about. To me, it should be obvious, but perhaps the following video will offer some insight:
