Metal / Re: Filosofem

I never really got into Burzum on account that I prefer to be able to make sense of the lyrics, that and after about 10 seconds, the vocals got on my nerves :P  Guess it is just a matter of taste... However, the music sans vocals on Filosofem is unparalleled, and the lyrics themselves are well-written.

I fell asleep listening to Financial Sense (a weekly financial podcast) and I was dreaming of technical charts and trendlines  ::)

It came out of the punk scene, and it reeks of the faggotry that always infested that social circle.

Bottom line: you can't listen to the music and mosh (ergo, missing the point) and it disturbs other concert goers (making it a selfish act).  There's a reason the only people you see moshing at metal shows are the shorthairs with trucker hats and bookbags.  The few that aren't actively straightedge (monks in other words - blech) drink PBR and Miller High Life exclusively.  What homos.


Methinks if the venue wishes to take on the liability (yes, there could well be a liability if security decides not to apprehend and expel an injuring party) the zone should be designated so that those who wish to avoid injury may do so.  Otherwise, such persons ought to have their asses kicked non-recreationally.

At Pagnfest in Raleigh, I noticed that of the participants of the pit that took place not far from the stage, where I had the privilege of being near front and centre.  Their appearance was reminiscant of the punk scene of old; how they wound up at at the event I do not know.  However, after a few slams against the stage, my legs gave out on account of the ensuing pain and I had to withdraw to the facilities and rehydrate.  Being quite skinny, there was not much cushion and the area wound up bruising.  :-/

Should I write the management or are such things to be anticipated?

Interzone / Re: Metal music listeners more intelligent?

There is a factor that may be distorting the results a bit: are the IQs adjusted for age?  Other than that, the data indeed suggests that metal-heads as a group may be the laggards.  However, I would like to know what the margin of error is in the study before drawing any conclusions.

Also, the data seems to indicate a bias toward IQs for those who listen to music outside of the mainstream, though methinks the exceptions of reggae and gospel could be attributed to racial IQ differences, though compared to an average population with the same racial composition, I would wager it would be higher.

Digressing, is there an introductory thread?
