Metal / Re: Knowing ones place: Burzum and 0peth

Pink Frothy AIDS?

ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME?

lol!

I'm hesitant to call 0peth progressive rock, is it enough to have grainy production and random acoustic guitars to be that? I listened to their newest record and ironically it is the least progressive music I have ever heard. Every new theme is like the start of a whole different song which gives the album the emotional coherence of a pregnant woman with mood swings. What is it they want to convey anyway?

The sound and aestethics of King Crimson aren't as important as the philosophy they re-introduced to music making; move away from the primal and the impulsive because all progress is based on patience and discipline.

Hypocrisy - Penetralia

I hate myself for not checking this stuff out earlier, it has the same type of simple violence with surgical precision as Massacra and Deicide. A mix CD of these three bands would be a really good idea!

I know oneliners can be more poignant than ordinary text but they can also make you seem smarmy if used too often. Often crow has a cool poetic staccato but sometimes he just seems like a mean douche with his short replies.  :(

What is freedom?

Coca-cola?

McDonald's?

The privilege of having your laws decided for you in Brussels?

To say otherwise is to render yourself a demon.

Apples and oranges. The EU being a trainwreck doesn't make Russia a positive influence on the Ukraine. If this situation gives ethnic Ukrainians more autonomy it's a positive thing

This is a weird parallel but this record is a lot like the Blind Guardian album Imaginations From The Other Side, insofar as instant satisfaction moments are almost completely absent in favor of a deeper and more lasting experience*. Listen to any one minute strech on IFTOS and it will sound boring, but take in the whole album and you will realize that they remember what they played five minutes ago and also know what they will do five minutes ahead. You can say that the songs themselves are the riffs in the album song.

Most similar bands like Dissection failed because they didn't dare to have this patience in songwriting which is a shame because the style has a lot of promise.

* "But this is the case with all good music". Well yes, but an album like e.g. A Blaze In The Northern Sky is good because it's composed of brilliant riffs that also happen to fit together reasonably well; it feels more like a work of intuition which makes it different from the farsighted FAFTS.

AIDS?

Yes please, just so I can see what all the hubbub is about. I visited Starbucks last last night so I'm probably in the HIV stage now anyway.

Interzone / Re: Swedish Cinemas introduce movie SEXISM ratings
« on: November 13, 2013, 02:29:51 AM »
As a swede I've come to hate my own country and country men. The insanity never stops. I don't know if I should try to go against the grain and find like minded people, organize and rebuild the swedish society or if I should use my gardeningeneering degree, move to the countryside, collect guns and watch the whole thing burn to the ground with mass imigration and feminism while screaming THIS IS WHAT YOU WANTED, REJOICE . As a white male at 24 years old, I feel like I am unwanted and looked down upon. I am considered the root of all evil. Sometimes I actually cry a little. Some friends understand my point of view, but they don't seem to grasp the consequences that surely will follow. My divorced parents, allthough intelectualls, doesen't get it either. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SO FUCKING EASY FOR THEM. They, along with the rest of the 40-50's born generations are the ones who created this fucking mess and they will stack the money, retire and die without EVER suffering the consequences. The people that was born in the 80's, 90's and 00's are all hyped up on technology, facebook and their own personal drama to pay any attention to the demise of the western civilization. The mass imigration will be the end of my countrymen and culture. Feminism and the sexual revolution will be the end of the nuclear family and that will be the nail in the coffin for this once upon a time great and free country. I just don't know what to do. Part of me want's the people to get what they deserve, the other part of me wants to try and fix society so that future generations don't have to go through the same shit. I know that there is beauty out there. But sometimes I don't know if It's worth it. I am sorry for this rambling text, you cant delete it if you want to since it doesen't contribute anthing to the topic. I just needed to vent some frustration on the internet since I cant do it IRL because I will get socialy excluded. My english is shitty so don't bother poiting that out.

You need to work on your paragraphing and intertextualizing techniques dude, I am Swedish too and I know that no matter how bad your English grammar is it should not be an obstacle for cohesive English text composition.

You should introduce a sub-topic, funnel it down from the most general to the most specific, and cut to another section for your next sub-topic. If possible you should also do this internally from one paragraph to the next to make your macro text as smooth to read as possible, flowing from top to bottom like a waterfall.

That was really off-topic but I just like to give constructive criticism when I can. :)

Metal / Re: Darkthrone's Decay Continues
« on: February 27, 2013, 01:36:35 AM »
If only Fenriz could shut up about true metal already. He depresses me to no end. 

Some decades ago Darkthrone ate 80s metal, digested it and then shat it out with a completely new shape, colour and smell. Today they just chew it and spit it out again; adding nothing of their own. Apparently they're more proud of being regurgitators than trailblazers.

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.

You miss the vital difference between any known genocide and the one in this scenario: The majority of everyone's own relations are victims. There will be trauma all right. For genocide you need groups on each side that that are (or at least see themselves as) either racially, culturally or religiously homogeneous.

I think it always was a figurative argument, but the point is that the literal act would be a positive step.

Let us first answer the question:

Would human civilization be better or worse if we fed all the under-120s into a woodchipper?

Worse of course. The collective trauma of any such act would make the remaining civilization implode. But it's a figurative question, the meat of which being: Is high quality better than low quality? Whoop dee doo, we all know the answer, but I doubt such an obvious conclusion makes us any wiser.

What we do need to ask, in a pragmatic fashion, is: Is this and that of high or low quality? Who needs to be put here and who needs to go there?

Forcing the defectives into woodchippers would deliver the same end results, plus nice mulch for reforestation, so what difference does it make really?

I actually believe that this is not the most practical solution anyway, regardless of any other concerns.  It would create a massive void in the social fabric, not a simple problem, not to mention the fact that 20% of the population probably isn't a large enough workforce to supervise the slaughter of the other 80%, even if they didn't have to perform any other tasks.  Then there is a psychological issue, it is hardwired into our genetics to be repulsed by death/murder, most murderers are dysfunctional people.  The 20% of the population that remains will be severely psychologically destabilised by such an undertaking.  

It's actually hard to understand how any could think that this idea is...

a) possible
b)good

More careful consideration needs to be given about how to solve these problems in the real world, not some hessian dreamworld, otherwise we're just talking for the sake of talking.

It's just something that sounds cool to blurt out. And besides, I don't want to kill off my mentally retarded son no matter how much feces he throws on the living room chandelier, because I love him too much.

What is actually a good and realistic idea is if everyone learns their place in society and steps in line. The IQ 95 carpenters are not the problem in this world; it's the IQ 105 journalists and company executives and musicians and what have you.

Interzone / Re: Adventures in Canadian Liberalism.
« on: April 07, 2012, 01:46:35 PM »
I admit, I have trouble with this.
And since you'va all wanted to be Canadian Liberals, at some point, here's what I know about it...

There is a script you maust follow. It goes something like this:
1: "How are you today?"
2: You are supposed to respond with: "Fine thanks. How about you?"
3: "Fine thanks."
Then you're both supposed to end the conversation and ignore each other.
But if you don't respond to being asked how you are today, the initiator will respond as if you had, anyway.
If you do respond, but with any details about how you actually are, the initiator will become increasingly paranoid, and may well end up calling the police.

In stores, which is where Canadians spend almost all their free time, there is also a script.
This often takes the form of adding non-sequiturs to the end of any question:
1: "Do you have a telephone number, with us, today?"
Which is a sort of base starting point, for other random non-sequiturs, such as:
2: "Do you have a telephone number, with us, today, at all?" Or:
3: "Do you have a telephone number, with us, today, at all, or...?"
Notice, in example 3:, the addition of what I like to refer to, as 'The Hanging "Or"'. The Hanging 'Or' denotes your unwillingness to assume anything, which is a good indicator of your non-judgmentalism, and thus complete harmlessness, which is the most important thing a Canadian Liberal wishes to convey.

This is a very funny way to put it, and I realize (even though I'm not Canadian) that this pertains to a particular neurotic pattern of behaviour, but I still want to nitpick because the subject of discourse is always interesting.

You will have a hard time finding a culture in any place or time in which spoken discourse is entirely pragmatic. Similarly to body language the empty phrase has always worked as a much needed social lubricant, as anyone who has ever made friends or successfully courted a woman realizes. What is striking (and sad) is actually how we have less codes of conduct today than ever before, and how politeness is becoming less and less important. Acceptable behaviour in aristocratic societies required knowledge of many of these seemingly pointless linguistic subtleties, because "going the extra mile" for your conversational partner was seen as a proof of respect and politeness.

We should put this in your context again however. As you pointed out this is a time when all substance has given way for fluff and air, and indeed; lubricant should only be applied to achieve the sufficient amount of friction, and not to remove it altogether. The Anus demands the right amount of lubricant. :-D

This new string of albums makes me wonder what exactly he was talking about in jail while bashing the state of current black metal. From reading all those big words I figured we'd either see a progression from his ambient work or something entirely new and groundbreaking, but ironically what we get is some kind of Drudkh metal.
