Metal / Smooth metal
« on: May 19, 2009, 08:12:24 PM »
Art can be a means for the truth, but not the end. Art forms move in phases, and compared to the truths they espouse, they are usually quite short-lived. Metal will be eaten up someday, and just like smooth jazz we will have smooth metal, that completely strips all of the passion. I already see it beginning to happen, particularly with 2009 being one of the most disappointing years in metal ever, and we are not helping. There seems to be a double standard of this site to make metal more widely accepted and understood, and in this process we have only homogenized it further, and then we bitch about it.

Interzone / Living Sustainably

It is becoming increasingly apparent that modern society's way of living is bringing it towards certain self-destruction, if not by ecocide, then by war. As somebody who always attempts to see the world as clearly as possible and acting accordingly, I have decided to leave the suburban life that I have grown accustomed to and build my own shelter in the vast Oregon wilderness, where I will grow my own food and live free of any dependence on any system besides nature's. I have already started amassing the funds to buy property in cash, and I already have the knowledge and skills necessary. The comfort I will find among the strength and beauty of the wild will far exceed any meek comforts I have been given by consumer society. I will not miss it...

Does anybody else here have any similar plans, or do you carry a different opinion on the future altogether?

Interzone / Beginner's Guide to Meditation

I was reading the Audiofile description of "Meditation Aids", and Walt was talking about "natural rhythms" during his meditation sessions. During my experiences in meditation, I have never experienced rhythm in any form, only chasms of dark, light, void, and thought.

So I was wondering, do I necessarily need to maintain a rhythm to achieve results, and if so, how?

How and why does ANUS meditate?
