Are there any normal people left?

Metal / Beast Within
« on: February 18, 2013, 12:33:05 PM »
"Beast Within from Quebec, Canada proudly wears its musical influences on its sleeves, taking cues from bands such as early Celtic Frost and Pentagram. Lyrically, the band stands for the emanation of the true "Self", buried deep inside each man and woman by centuries of decadence, slavery and blindness imposed by a false moral, political and religious elite."

Summary: sounds like new and old Celtic Frost combined with a doom metal / stoner metal groove.

Interzone / "Mature" modern society giggles when poop is mentioned
« on: February 17, 2013, 12:39:31 PM »
Whenever a story is really popular, it makes sense to look at what the human interest factor is. Chances are its practical importance is negligible, but something has fascinated the population.

In the case of Carnival Cruise Lines floating disaster off the coast of Mexico, the appeal was poop. We can't talk about feces except with clinical detachment, because we're supposed to be "mature" about it. However, human nature comes out when given a "safe" way to talk about the fascinating grossness of it all.

The headlines played it up. "Floating Petri dish," sewage streaming down the walls, passengers defecating in plastic bags, the stench inside so bad people camped out on deck, and so on. But really, everyone just wanted an excuse to gab about poop.

Quote
At some point during the ordeal urine and feces streamed in the halls and down walls after toilet facilities failed, soaking the mattress of a friend of his who was sleeping in a hallway, said Larry Poret.

Poret said toilets on the ship worked on and off, but were too inconsistent to trust.

He said waste tipped out of some commodes and sloshed across floors as the ship listed to the side.

"It runs down the walls from one floor to the next. It's running out of somebody's bathroom out into the hallway all the way across," he said.

During the tow back to the United States, "the vessel listed sharply several times, causing human waste to spill out of non-functioning toilets, flood across the Vessel's floors and halls, and drip down the Vessel's walls," it says.

"Plaintiff was forced to endure unbearable and horrendous odors on the filthy and disabled Vessel, and wade through human feces in order to reach food lines where the wait was counted in hours, only to receive rations of spoiled food. Plaintiff was forced to subsist for days in a floating toilet, a floating Petri dish, a floating hell."

The crew aboard Carnival Triumph didn't hesitate when a fire broke out and power was lost, an emergency that turned the cruise liner into a bobbing Porta-Potty.

Without functioning toilets, passengers were given red biohazard bags to use -- and it became the crew's duty to pick up the used ones.

Some passengers shared the bags; others lined baskets with them and turned them into makeshift outhouses.

What is it that I do not want to see happen to the world? The fusion of liberal internationalism and consumerism, which will make a dystopian nightmare out of our best intentions.
