Living With Schizophrenia – PART 1

wez g

Living with Schizophrenia Part 1 from End Of Terror on Vimeo. This is the first part of my mental health story, explaining how I first came into contact with psychiatry in 1997 and the horrors I experienced during my first mental hospital incarceration. I plan to do a series of videos about mental health. More http://endofterror.org This was a video I did a couple of years ago. It was originally posted on my youtube but I had to take it down as it cost me a job. I had gone through the interview process and been appointed by Pharmya ( http://www.pharmya.com/ ), a pharmacovigilance company in the South of France. It would have been an interesting position, combining translation, interpreting, my language skills and also knowledge of medical industry, but the woman boss found this whilst googling and decided that she couldn’t employ me as a result. Anyway, I like the fact that the video is the truth… You can run and hide from your past or you can live with it. My biggest goal in life is not to make money, or to travel, raise a family, fall in love etc… My primary goal is to sleep at night with a clean conscience. I feel that on the whole I manage to do that. Since the making of this video my incurable ‘schizophrenia’ has actually been ‘cured’ and I have a new diagnosis that I haven’t even bothered to research bar a brief scan of wikipedia. I’m now apparently suffering from Schizo-Affective disorder which sort of buggers up the future episodes I plan to do for this series… Enjoy the vid, any comments most welcomed… Hope I don’t lose any more work for putting it out into the ether…

Blast From The Past: The Sandwich Show featuring Wez G

Here is a rare bit of video footage of DJ Wez G in action (back in 2010)… Filmed for the legendary (now defunct) Cardiff radio programme, The Sandwich Show, DJ Wez G lays down some grooves in the company of crazy hosts, Flapsandwich (http://sicknote.tv) and Ninjah… The show’s theme is mental health. ‘Nuthouse’ features a crazy journey to the house of Paul and Al (RIP) where the event took place, after the regular Sandwich Show studio was unavailable… Hannibal the Cannibal masks and mink scarves were the order of the day and Ninjah’s journey to the off license to stock up on beers was a journey itself! I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and long after the broadcast finished we continued to party the night away… I hope you enjoy the video!

Rhino Cock Soundsystem – Tease Me 23

Rhino Cock Soundsystem are two of my music mate’s new project. Tommy Tank and Johann Flapsandwich (from Sicknote) are the producers of some mashed out electronic beats. The music is good, but for this track, in particular, the video (made by the legend, Norris Nuvo), is simply astounding. Full of apocalyptic butt-shaking, this vd will have you glued to your screen. I know they’re my mates, but this is simply one of the best music videos out there. Check it out! You’ll love it!

The End Of The World

skeeter davis

We love Skeeter here at End Of Terror… Yes the song’s a little dark but when it played once in the end credits to our regular ‘Mad Men’ series addiction we just couldn’t help keep it churning on the EoT jukeboxes… End of The World? Everyone knows an apocalyptic nutbag or two… Let’s hope the End OF Terror is achieved first! More from Skeeter Davis here http://www.last.fm/music/Skeeter%2520Davis

Shiny Happy People

shiny happy people

Something nice and positive here for the psychiatric victims who might be reading this. Although here at  End Of Terror we do not believe in the existence of psychiatric conditions such as depression, maybe your mood is down and you enjoy hearing about R.E.M.’s ‘Shiny Happy People.’ No harm in having a positive mental attitude at all… Actually we are a bit sad and depressed that such a great band should split up More from R.E.M. here http://www.last.fm/music/R.E.M

Frontier Psychiatrist

frontier psychiatrist

I suppose that this is the classic psychiatry track… The Avalanches are a great Australian trip hop style band who heavily rely on sampling and are most adept at using it in their work. This is perhaps their most successful and popular song and is a most amusing listen with a decent video too… Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill Is Dexter ill today, Mr Kirk, Dexter’s in school I’m afraid he’s not, Miss Fishpaw Dexter’s truancy problem is way out of hand The Baltimore County school board have decided to expel Dexter from the entire public school system Oh Mr Kirk, I’m as upset as you to learn of Dexter’s truancy But surely, expulsion is not the answer! I’m afraid expulsion is the only answer It’s the opinion of the entire staff that Dexter is criminally insane That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic, That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic That boy needs therapy Lie down on the couch! What does that mean? You’re a nut! You’re crazy in the coconut! What does that mean? That boy needs therapy I’m gonna kill you, that boy needs therapy Grab a kazoo, let’s have a duel Now when I count three That, that, that, that, that boy.. boy needs therapy He was white as a sheet And he also made false teeth Avalanches is above, business continues below Did I ever tell you the story about Cowboys! M-M-midgets, the indians and, Fron, Frontier Psychiatrist I… I felt strangely hypnotised I was in another world, a world of 20.000 girls And milk! Rectangles, to an optometrist, the man with the golden eyeball And tighten your buttocks, pour juice on your chin I promise my girlfriend I’d, the violin, violin, violin … Frontier Psychiatrist Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic That boy needs therapy Lie down on the couch, what does that mean? You’re a nut! You’re crazy in the coconut! What does that mean?

Mental Health Review Tribunal – Phone In Sick

sicknote phone in sick

Sicknote are my mates – please support their great music! I’ve been up all night debating about whether or not to go to the Mental Health Review Tribunal Scheduled for tomorrow at 11am at Talygarn Ward, Griffithstown Hospital, Pontypool. I have an appeal against the Community Treatment Order (CTO) that I was placed on following my discharge from Section 3 of the Mental Health Act when I was detained a few months ago. When you are placed on a section order – whether it be for hospital detainment or one of these horrible new-fangled freedom-crushing CTOs – you get the right of appeal. Well – by law and the Mental Health Act itself you should get the right of appeal. I have been through entire sections without any appeal at all. What they claim at the Tribunal Office is that they are too busy, too snowed under to process the appeal. If you are lucky enough to have one scheduled, usually it comes very late on into the section. For a six month detention under section 3 you can expect to be waiting at least 4 months for your appeal hearing. After which time you are pretty much adjusted to the inner workings of the looney bin. Not that you should ever hold out any hope whatsoever of ever winning. The Mental Health Review Tribunal (MHRT) service is there to make Mental Health look legal and just. It is a facade for public and media consumption. Yes – they’ll give you a sheet of paper when you are locked up as a patient, explaining your rights. If they say they do this it makes it a lot easier for all the politicians in Westminster or Cardiff, to vote in favour of more punitive conditions and laws for detainees as they (in the adept lying manner only politicans can really truly understand) can justify to themselves that they are acting justly and they can sleep at night. It’s all self-reassurance. Before you ever get a chance to read the slip of paper, they rip it back from you and get straight to the more pertinent and relevant to their work needle-jabbing process to drug and torture you. After several months of drowning in pools of your own drool and taking a break in your chainsmoking to slurp drool, while adopting a military like program of getting out of bed and getting…

No Love Lost

joy division

Joy Division are a popular band at End Of Terror. We listen to them perhaps more than any other band. ‘No Love Lost’ just about sums up our feelings for the Mental Health System. The music is dark and driving and has a deep and meaningful message. Lead Singer, Ian Curtis, tragically died – as a suicide victim – as so many psychiatric victims out there sadly end up too. The depth of his soul to have produced such fantastic lyrical music must have been bountiful yet he was taken from us too early, like so many talented musicians. There is a lovely Joy Division back catalogue easily available for you and if that’s not enough post-Curtis the rest of the band formed New Order – another cracking band, not to mention the Hacienda nightclub in Manchester which they also found time to deliver to the world. Culturally rich, this group of artists are an inspiration to our End Of Terror mission. Be sure to watch the full film ‘Control’, a clip of which is shown in the music video. It’s an emotional rollercoaster of the highs and lows of a tortured soul. More Joy Division here http://www.last.fm/music/Joy+Division Also New Order here http://www.last.fm/music/New+Order

When Shall I Be Free?

when shall i be free

What better way to express the way you are feeling than by listening to decent music? No revolution succeeds without being fuelled by the beat of the drum. In the first of the new End Of Terror Vibe series of blog posts, Shpongle bring you here a great performance of this perfect ‘When Shall I Be Free?’ hit filmed in a live performance at one of their seminal London Roundhouse shows. Shpongle are a modern electronic band, out there on a limb, fusing ethnic sounds from across the world with a live-enabled cutting edge electronic base. They are independent thinkers in a music world that is today so devoid of creativity. More Shpongle here – http://www.last.fm/music/Shpongle
