Interzone / Re: Why is this place a lurker's haven?
« on: November 07, 2012, 02:06:10 PM »
Some may be curious - perhaps even genuinely interested but hesitant, some may be merely just "browsing" out of the bordem of their wasted, futile lives.

Being a lurker at this site, I can ascribe to both of these points, actually, but mostly it's about not wanting to confuse my personal issues with the societal issues discussed here. I don't have my shit straight neither financially, politically, academically nor socially and I'm going to go out on a limb and assert that some of you guys are dysfunctional in the same way, to varying degrees (or as Undermind put it, "being a slightly autistic male on the Internet").

On the other hand, the "normals" (this unfortunate term came up in some thread here, attempting to capture some sort of generic individual that doesn't really exist, but I think you get the point) around me are also dysfunctional but in other ways.

In conclusion, it doesn't make sense to discuss these bigger issues until I can honestly say that I'm a functional, contributing member of society, although with dissident views. But then again we have the Dunning-Kruger effect; is this approach of mine just coming from low self-esteem?

Ok, that does it. I really should get the hell out of Sweden. But where to? Parts of Eastern Europe are appealing, but their level of infrastructure seems to be way below what I'm used to as a Swede. Their car roads suck, for one.
Don't abandon your country. Even if you are a coward and a traitor the disease of liberalism runs deep, you'll never escape it. Stand your ground and fight.

I'm not sure this out of necessity makes me a coward and a traitor. Suppose I determine that my home country is a lost cause and I can't do anything about it (not even with a movement that support my cause and values), then why can't I recognize it as such and move on to some place that isn't as liberalism infested?

What then would you contribute in a new country where you have few or no genuine connections to anything or anyone? You would only become a burden to everyone else, and personally you would probably be better off killing yourself anyway.

As far as Sweden in particular goes you're not alone, I know that the faggotry and general decadence in Sweden is setting many world records. Again however; stop whining and start doing something about it, or kill yourself.

Heh, that's stretching it a bit. What do you mean?

Even if I don't do something about "queer theory" bullshit like this becoming accepted, I can still be a useful individual by working within my fields of interest: write, record and perform quality metal music and create efficient IT solutions. On an individual level (and more importantly, on a societal level; see the review of "Atlantean Monument" by Lord Wind here on the ANUS) it makes sense to not only strive for greatness within fields where my views and methods are unlikely to offend anyone (metal or IT), but also work to solve issues such as this; however, not doing the latter doesn't render me entirely useless as a person, but somewhat "incomplete", though.

I remember an episode of Seinfeld when Elaine is worried about something and tells her boyfriend Puddy, and he says: "Talk to me, babe." I mean, that's not even funny. But they put the laughs anyway. Yes, I know this is a pre-fabricated line in america, so the fact that puddy decided to use it confirms the fact that he is an average guy or something and this is funny, but still...

I don't quite understand the rest of your post, but this _is_ funny. Why? It's not only the pre-fabricated, cheesy line which in itself is funny (but not very much). The comedic value also lies in Puddy's way of devilering this line, that is, his tonality and expression when saying it; all these things communicate that he's a bit of a simpleton. Feeling me, 'nilla?

I see money as a way to escape the burden of society and money itself. Beware this path though, for there are many traps.

"x as a way to escape the burden of x itself"

Somewhat perplexing. What do you mean?

What band(s) do you have in mind? Brain Drill? Necrophagist?

Indeed, the whole thing seems fabricated. The mix and instruments in their song "Triumphatus Sad" just sounds too polished and digital to have been made in 1969--not because the recording is of very high quality, it just sounds more like it has been made on a cheap computer based home studio. Also, as someone pointed out in the comments at YouTube (see link below), the guitar sounds like it has been run through a 90's Korg pedal.

Link to the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg5U1-nQHsE

I am thinking maybe a big joke is being played on me and this band never really existed, but the joke must have been on someone else, as I am no one.

What?

Interzone / Re: Are Aspies the superman?
« on: July 22, 2009, 10:02:57 AM »
Aspies being supermen? Wouldn't think so. Many aspies (while having uncanny abilities in science/computing/math etc.) have difficulties dealing with everyday stuff like paying bills, taking verbal instructions at work or whatever; stuff you'd expect a superman to grasp quickly without much effort.

2. No jobs! -- Immortal

Could anyone elaborate on what they meant with this? Perhaps with a link to an interview or something.

Interzone / Re: On technicality
« on: June 18, 2009, 08:01:32 AM »
This subject goes in hand with my recording technique. I limit the technology so that I may  use more of my artistic abilities to produce my emotions, images, and moods. It is also interesting at the point personally how I never pick up my instruments with the thought of creating something, as all of us here know, brootal, or elit or super techie. I just do and the joy is just endless....

I believe this is also what the progenitors of any metal movement (later to be imitated) do; i.e. they don't think in terms of "Now I'm going to create a new genre with specific limitations on song structure, melodic scales and lyrics" but rather just aspire to create something really awesome. This is not to be confused with the "randomness" approach, where you just, sort of, cut & paste bits and pieces from genres all over the place (Opeth i.e. O-peth, Ephel Duath, Farmakon).

Autopsy didn't have great instrumental skills and weren't concerned about how their music would be accepted - they just got together and did what they thought was right to do.

When I listen to Origin or Beneath the Massacre, I imagine these straight A+ Berklee graduates going into the studio and thinking about how to make the hardest-to-play songs ever.

I'm pretty much with you on this sentiment, but really, aren't you merely creating problems for a solution you already have decided upon?

"Origin's music is characterized by almost exclusive use of several specific, difficult playing techniques: blast beats on the drum kit, multiple death-growled vocals, and arpeggios on both the guitars and the bass guitar. Their songs often have uneven, shifting time signatures."

Holy shit, "blast beats on the drum kit"? Yeah, that's a really specific, difficult playing technique =)

Anyway, what's interesting here is to pin down exactly what it is that differentiates bands/songs that display technicality for technicality's sake (e.g. Origin, Necrophagist) from actual genuineness. I believe most of us have that unscientific "feel" that usually allows one to listen to half a song of a newly discovered band and then dismiss the band entirely, but there should be something more to this, innit?

I also think this should be considered without taking external stuff like the the public persona's of the band members into account.
