Always keep the faith

Happiness. Does it truly exist? Or is it, as some say, just an imaginary concept created by Man to give life meaning? And what of its pursuit? Is it really worth it? For many, its effects seem so fleeting. Merely lasting seconds, not years.

But no matter, because it IS worth it, and you must always keep the faith, no matter how hopeless and bleak times may seem. Find solace in the things that truly make you happy. Whether it's old friends, your partner, traveling, concerts, The Cure, whatever it is for you, that keeps you from being "lost forever in a happy crowd."

All this, simply to say, chin up! Darkest before the dawn. Silence before the big bang. Wonderful things are just around the corner. You just can't quite see them yet. But one day, you will.

Update (5/5/11): Now that the news is out, I'll highlight the clues in red. : )

  11. very nice written, I am touched, thank you Craig!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really hope you're going to tell us that the Rebecca Black collaboration is indeed true!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh how I wish I could! But I can't. Not yet. Not until...friday, friday. : )

  14. All of this just to announce the release of Paris 2008 on DVD and Blu-Ray! We are NOT so desparate, Craig! (I feel it coming soon... Well, at least there will be a complete show video bootleg available somewhere soon, so says my little finger!)

  15. I feel pretty crappy, Craigers. I'm volunteering for political parties for the federal election here in Canada and both our left-wing parties disappoint me. There are so many scumbags and careerists. Each time I volunteer, I somehow feel a bit deflated and disillusioned, wondering what it's all for. I'm sure many of you Obama supporters in the US can relate; heck, even I hoped for more from Obama!

    So, thanks, Craig, whether it's about a Cure release or just life. I never really understood what Robert sings about in "Pornography" when I was in high school, but a few years later I "got" it and that understanding of the bleakness of life hasn't left me.

  16. I'm going for the Wish Remaster announcement..........maybe..

    ReplyDelete
  17. i personally would prefer NOT to have these kind of hints as it's very, very frustrating. especially after so much time without anything interesting happening. just give the news when you can give them! as i said, now i really feel frustrated.

  18. Well thank you, Craig! That was very nice to read this morning!

  20. It is hard to believe that it has been thirty years.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Daaamn Craig. This is scary. The lyrics of last 2 RS songs that came out, were exactly how I felt at that moment. Perfect for my situation. Today, life sucks like hell, and I read this. Stop it, yall!! :p

  22. Stretching my neck to see around this corner already! It´s coming too slow! :D
    Don't say friday or I'll believe you... post birthday news!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Is it just me, or all a lot of the "In Orange" videos that were on YouTube not there any more? Does that mean something good for a DVD/Blu-Ray release?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nice touch Craig...as always.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Graig:Can u give us a little indication of what to come?

    thanx :)

  26. I've been feeling terrible for weeks (even deactivated my facebook account so you know I'm serious haha)

    So this is good news to me, even if its a red herring and there isn't much to be excited about. Seeing everybody's enthusiasm and optimism always brings a smile.

  27. It must be s.th. huge. Craig never post s.th. like this before, didn´t he? I am damn curious. Maybe a Faith Tour with the original line up? Maybe the promised 25th anniversary concert with all ex members? Maybe just a DVD release. I bet NOT. Great post craig. This is nervewrecking

    ReplyDelete
  28. Dunno why but that came across to me as a half warning of bad things before anything good.

    ReplyDelete
  29. hmmm... 25 years ago... orange... this is my small vote (and big hope)... :)

  30. Kel: The Friday thing was a joke. P.M was saying he hoped that the Rebecca Black collaboration was real, and I was jokingly saying that I couldn't reveal that until Friday, which is the name of her horrible song.

  35. Sounds like a Faith Concert or 2 with Simon and Lol. I guess Jason wouldn't mind if its just a show? They better film it for dvd/bray though, Trilogy is so amazing, it'd be nice to have that for Faith too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. lol, thank you Craig :) We started speculations on the french forum, I can now turn them down :D
