Interzone / Re: Marduk vs. Lady Gaga

If I call a man a homosexual, does that mean I'm gay?

A more accurate comparison would be spotting one man sticking his dick into another man's arsehole, and attempting to prevent the first man from doing so by filling the second man's arsehole with your own dick.

And yes, if you did that, you would probably be gay.

That explanation implies action on my part, rather than a mere observation. What I'm trying to say is that a hipster is pretty easy to spot if you're not a hipster, just like a tiger is easy to spot if you're not a tiger. As far as I'm concerned, hipsterdom is merely taking a random assortment of ideas and cultural movements and mashing them together in a way that says LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME, which is why I see grown men wearing corpsepaint and keffiyehs at shows.

I'm really beginning to believe that the Internet is a disease that warps the minds of people with real intellectual potential, or at least the potential to shuffle along quietly in life and never let their idiotic ramblings be heard.

I wish I could have those minutes of my life back.

it looks like the discussion has really regressed into teenager lulz, and hipster ironies/indie cred.

Pointing out hipster ironies is a pretty fucking hipster thing to do.

Oh look, i'm being ironic.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. It's been a while since I've been here last but it looks like the discussion has really regressed into teenager lulz, and hipster ironies/indie cred.

It's all to be expected though, nothing good can last forever.

Interzone / Re: Czech Republic legalizes hallucinogenic drugs
« on: February 06, 2010, 02:46:20 AM »
Many hallucinogenic drugs, as well as marijuana, cause you to look inwards and examine your life from an (almost) outside perspective, a task that is nigh impossible for most people while they are sober. However, I can only assume that most of these people either don't find much worth salvaging or don't have the proper context to truly break themselves down and plan a rebuilding.

I've smoked pot maybe twenty times, and while I was quiet, socially awkard, and introverted while I was high, after each experience I have gone out into the world the next day and did something I would consider truly worthwhile, while everyone else I experienced it with went on with their lives as usual as far as I know.

All war is genocidal, in its most stripped-down form.  You are seeking to displace another people entirely, either by simply destroying them all, or by subjugating those that it makes no sense to kill.

Not to be condescending or pedantic, but this is known as "total war", and is merely one form of military strategy. It is, and has been, against the goals of most military institutions and leaders to harm civilians.

I'm quite surprised and a little shocked that Ein deutches requiem hasn't been mentioned here yet.
Also known as the German Requiem.

For some reason or other I didn't see that on the first post, just to clarify that I am not ignorant, merely unobservant.

Metal / Re: Why do metal bands decline as they gain experience?
« on: January 26, 2010, 02:04:38 AM »
I honestly think some bands just get tired, burnt out, or they lose their sense of purpose.

I don't think a true musician ever runs out of ideas though, they just move on to new forms of expressing them. However, this can be a problem if you've got a steady gig.

It's like being trapped in a lackluster relationship.

I make chiptunes, which is music made from the 8-bit soundchips of computers and video game systems of the 1980's. It's an expensive hobby.

There is a difference between being childish and being childlike. Childlike behavior is immersing yourself in the desire to understand the world and how to function within it. Being childish is doing shit because you can.

I see we're all about speaking in absolutes here.
If this is the case, and I must dilute my message in order for it to be palatable and soft, and stand upon a soapbox in front of all the world, then I ask a simple question:
Can a man with a job have enough time in the day to maintain a field of plants, of all different varieties, not to mention a small quantity of livestock?

There is something I have been conflicted with a lot while perusing this site recently. The originators and most vocal members of ANUS seem to view metal as something that transcends them and holds some sort of special secret of life. While it's a fun distraction, it's not the truth. When I go to shows I do not see myself as a member of some sort of club, because while I enjoy the escapism of metal, it does not define in any way who I am as a person. Anyone who allows entertainment to define their personality can take their asses straight back to middle school where they belong.

As I have stated before in this thread quite clearly, I am not going to hermit myself. I am not gratified by my current consumer lifestyle, and the ugliness and disease of the cities and the fearfulness of the masses. I used to devour the news every evening... now it makes me physically sick to hear it. My city is building a "green" hotel? Money is still exchanging hands, and if those who profit slap a little band-aid on a missing limb, then all the better for them. They get to look like good people.

There is a lot of talk about change on this site. But where are our great actions?
