The Brisbane concert has moved to ... The HiFi Bar, and it's on Monday 9th. I'll be going to that one :D

Or perhaps, does the world really need violent cartoons? What purpose would they serve? Merely to shock?

While I doubtless disagree with the papers reasons for censoring the cartoon and this papers general attitude. If I were in charge I probably wouldn't be permitting it either.

What's the point of learning and discovering? I guess this site doesn't see any point in that.

A question posed by another user and was conveniently ignored in the other thread, what do you hope to learn from this and what relevance or importance is it?

I am not entirely sure what my opinion on this is, can't say previous to this thread I have given it a great deal of though. But I agree with the others who have said that an infant or young child would be incapable or relating to the spirit of metal. For the first dozen or so years I think providing a loving and protective home for them is more important than any spiritual or intellectual development. So in that case I would possibly suggest more relaxing music, such as Bach or Mozart.

At the same time, I don't think this can be rubber stamped in any real way. Nothing can replace attentive parenting. If you decide to play metal around them, watch and observe their reaction and make sure they are not agitated by it.

I think you are missing the point, even if we learn from it, is what we learn of any value?

Suggested reading: "On Being a Pagan" by Alain de Benoist. Also worth reading are "Tyr" 1 and 2... These are anthologies of contemporary pagan thought


I was looking at Tyr I and II on amazon a little while ago considering whether or not to buy them. Any further feedback you could give on them?

Metal / Re: New Immortal Song Clip

As much as I'd like to agree, I can't say I do. Among all of the first, second, and third wavers - I'd say Immortal has done the least damage to black metal genre out of anyone. I'm not going to pretend I know how popular Immortal is considering I'm from the states. But compared to Satyricon, Dimmu, and other bands, Immortal has changed the least.


Immortal seem to be more like Gorgoroth, they have become somewhat derivative, and to a certain extent useless. But their new material is not exactly bad per se.

And that was intelligent what you just said? Using sarcasm and insulting are two different things. No one will hate you for being slightly humorous when answering someone. But when you go further than this and start insulting you are really lower than Atthegates. Obviously he is bringing meaningless topics but at least he didn't insult.


No what I said was not particularly intelligent, and I will be the first to admit that (well, actually third, but who's counting :)).

In my defence, he has been cluttering the forum with posts that are useless (yes, I could ignore them, but will that make him stop?), and I was getting somewhat ticked at his holier then thou attitude while doing it.

As for the insult, it was meant more as "this is the level of intelligence that I deem adequate to these posts", then actually insinuating that he was gay.

Keep your integrity.


Yeah, fair enough.

Say something intelligent and I (and I am sure, others) will give you an intelligent answer, until then I will stick with my gay jokes. Fudge packer.

I am generally abducted about 2 times a week. Generally just after I take lots of drugs have have gay sex. I always wake up with a sore arse, so I assume they are using some kind of anal probe on me.

I find it curious that people who get outraged at allowing morons to vote don't mind these same halfwits carrying firearms.

I am personally glad that where I live has extremely tight gun control, if I piss off a drunk sub 90IQ aggressive half wit, the worst that can happen is he has a knife, and even that is unlikely.

The technical term you're searching for is 'fact.'


Generally, I have to say I hate the concept of people hiding behind flawed logic (or complete lack of) under the guise of "it's my opinion therefore I don't need reasoning", so generally I would agree with your sentiments.

But in this case I think you are taking it to the other extreme. There are no opinions, I am right, therefore I don't need any reasoning.

Also I listen to music several times a day, so quiet untermensch!

Alright, let’s be reasonable here. Though everyone on this site hates me because I’m the only one who question their views on life,
According to the string theory, 11 dimensions exist. Albert Einstein theorized that time should be the 4th dimension. Since then scientists have discovered 11 dimensions, 1 being time, 10 being of space.


How the fuck did you become so egocentric? Did all your uncles want to do you more then any of your cousins?

Christ, the views expressed on this site (which as mentioned in another thread, you don't actually know what are) are not in any way popular. What makes you think that any single one user here has not been questioned a hundred times by people more intelligent then yourself?

Shit, get the fuck off your horse.

It is only possible to introduce the M theory by linking the 5 string theories. The M theory consists of the belief of parallel universes and multiple dimensions. M could potentially stand for “membranes” indicating that membranes vibrate and collide in this universe and others. These collisions are what scientists consider to be big bangs.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M-theory

I was watching a documentary on the science channel telling of these theories, and the very end of the program suggested that as technology advances, it might be possible to manipulate these so called membranes and if we could cause them to collide, and of course considering the explanation of the big bang theory, then another universe would begin to expand. It wouldn’t take up any space in our universe. It would be its own independent space.

Therefore, whether this theory seems to be so redundantly ridiculous, it might be possible for a life form to create a universe. Who’s to say that “aliens” did not create ours? Some ufos researchers do not consider ufos to be from a different galaxy but from a different universe and possibly time.


The problem with string theory in general, is that one it cannot be experimentally proven and every time experiments fail it's proponents claim we need more energy and also do not state how much. Secondly string theory doesn't really predict much of anything and as such cannot be verified. For the time being, string theory is nothing but some exceedingly elegant mathematics.

Also, this is ridiculous.

The part about empathy and ostricization from society is the part I have an issue with.

The list of bands is pretty shitty, though.


Those two points are something I think we all can agree on.

Eh, aside from points 7 and 8, the first one is a far better representation of the genre than one could get from any other source "outside" of the genre, and even the first sentence of point 7 isn't bad- it's just when it turns humanist that it's wrong.


I agree. He appears to understand the method of delivery of metal, but to misunderstand the content.
