The answer to that is long and manifold, my friend. It's been a trying time for me. C'est la vie.

It's good to see all of you. I'll talk to you when I'm able.

:)


I suppose it would be a long lecture on caberat dancing....

But thanks to the progress of time (of metal "growing up"), the bands are now socially conscious good citizens who latch onto social issues and raise awareness. Even metal progresses!


That is most certainly NOT what Heavy Metal is about.  (Yes I know you wrote that sarcastically...)

In fact Heavy Metal started out opposed to the hippies and all they stood for:

Quote
The themes of darkness, evil, power and apocalypse are language components for addressing the reality of life's problems. In reaction to the "peace and love" hippie culture of the 1960s, heavy metal developed as a counterculture, where light is supplanted by darkness and the happy ending of pop is replaced by the naked reality that things do not always work out in this world

These facts are not that hard to find!  I got it off of wikipedia for crying out loud!

Welcome back Lydia, your secret's safe with me. ;)

Anyway, how was your stay in Atlantic city, BLAF-B? I trust that your days as a cabaret dancer are over now, I presume?

By the way Lydia, have you had your SRS done yet? Just curious, as I heard that your HRT went well...

Why do I want to know? I don't know you from a hole in the wall. I like to know to whom I am referring. Call me crazy, but it's a passion of mine.

You can inform me via email if you like. It's right under my username. I'm not the feds. You conspiracy theorists crack me up.

Pleasure chatting with you.

By the way, what is an SRS? Or an HRT for that matter? Or are you just taking the piss for taking the piss's sake?

It's an internet forum: You're not going to know most of the people you talk with here. Get off your high horse.

In his thick British accent and intellectual delivery, Mark "Barney" Greenway may confuse folks who label heavy death metal as music for dunderheads.

Greenway, vocalist for Napalm Death, is a socially conscious vegetarian and animal rights advocate.

"I believe in a more peaceful world, and it really confounds me that people can't trust themselves."

Did the lead vocalist of an eardrum-crushing death metal outfit just say he believed in a peaceful world?

Those unfamiliar with the metal scene may be perplexed by Greenway. While his animated stage presence and singing style that consists mainly of deep grunting may have onlookers casting stereotypes, Greenway doesn't have a hateful bone in his body. He doesn't worship Satan or sacrifice goats.

Instead, he keeps abreast of world events and promotes the concept of democracy. He has expressed strong anti-conservative and anti-national socialist views.

He also supports animal rights and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

"I've got Motown in my music and some ambient stuff," Greenway said. "I'm a music fan. Even if your view of music isn't wide in the first place, it will be once you're in a band and on the road."
