Interzone / Re: Under 120s gone: better or worse?

I don't know why anyone would answer "worse" for this question. "Better" is the correct answer of course.

Some people are weak in their souls and are afraid to defy taboo.

They want to convince us that we are wrong and impractical, and therefore, we should abandon truth for convenience.

That's cowardice and no nihilist should respect it.

I think I'd just settle for smaller cities, more local government, and no pandering to idiots through equality. We don't need to go radical. Rural living is awesome but cities serve a purpose too; it just must be carefully regulated.

I'm all in favor of meditation; that's a solo activity.

As far as philosophy, you need some rigorous state of mind or you end up in hipster territory.

Interment - Into the Crypts of Blasphemy

As I approached this release, in my mind there were two thoughts that could cleave a world. The first was that I really do want to re-live those days of glory during the time when the first Entombed, Dismember and Therion albums shaped the sounds of the cosmos. And the second was that a recombinant title like "Into the Crypts of Blasphemy" might render up unto us the same lukewarm drivel of retro-death that Entrails, Fatalist, Disma, and now Autopsy have been piling on our sad desolated corpses. This album will never be as thoroughly exempt from virtue as the Fatalist con-job or the complete weekender hipster project that is Entrails. However, even in its brightest hour, this has none of the grace that infests early Entombed. It is rote, without subtlety and thus missing the small insights into the world beyond that make death metal truly transcendent. It may be good but it's not good enough.

Acrostichon - Engraved in Black

Through the turbulent times of human struggle, people have been able to turn to music to unite them and express their fears, doubts, angers and hopes. Some music however expresses very little, because it is derivative of past music, and has nothing particular of its own to say. As a result you get a salad with bits from influences thrown in at random and while each song appears to be a song, no impression forms in the mind that this song has conveyed anything more than some riffs, vocals and drumbeats that sound a lot like others. This makes the song comforting but empty. Like its fellow influences Coroner and other early-1980s European speed metal bands, "Engraved in Black" is basically warmed over heavy metal with more emphasis on vocals and death metal style playing. However, these riff patterns were old in the days of NWOBHM. Like Coroner, these musicians are competent, but it's unclear if they express anything. In fact, most European death metal failed for this reason, until the Swedes saved everyone. It just has nothing to say. It may be good, but it doesn't matter; it expresses a brief glimpse of incoherence and nothing more.

Radical individualism is the Crowd at its essence.

Of course, it ends up producing an even greater hive.

We are all individuals, together, identically.

Can't buy into it. Moderates result in inevitable devolution to a mean. You either keep the aircraft pointed in a clear direction, or it tends toward entropy and pulls a Payne Stewart on ya.

We can't become wildlife; we can give it a place. Ideally more space than we give ourselves, since we are one (1) species and the flora and fauna are many.

We've ALL moved on from this.

It seems to me like most forum users accepted it, except for a few exoteric-Christian-style moralists who really have become upset.

We should all move on now.

Life: a span of time to do interesting things that result in beauty.

Death: reversion to a monist state.

Sodomy: the goal of all internet.

I'm going to suggest that course title to the Philosophy school at Edinburgh University.

Only if they teach it in Gaelic...
