There are much better ways to get noticed besides a mall. A mall is a vaccuous lump of concrete, filled with imbiciles and consumerism. It is, I would think, the antithesis of hessianism...it'd come off to me as a bit hypocritical to become involved in any way there.

Isn't there a name for this font?


"Old English Text" if I remember right.

Of those, X out the ones who no longer play or no longer make high-quality art-music.

the saddest part in all of this is that within a mountain of dirt there may be one jewel,


;)

...and I doubt for every mountain there's a j3wel. Perhaps for every mountain range, speaking metaphorically, but even the remaining worthwhile bands are dying at a frightening rate.

for me its a view that we need to live with nature again, abandon our filthy livs here and return to a better way of life... its short and simple yet thats all that needs to be said for me

Black metal means to me that the cult of the individual is dead, and that the Idea is preeminent again. Nature, logic, heroism, the beauty of darkness and light together... whether the fucking spoiled brat of a modern individual wants it or not.

I like Magus' Ruminations of Debauchery quite as bit. Hardangervidda and Hvis Lyset tar Oss are great too.

Recently, there has been a resurgence in thrash bands -- mostly on myspace -- and interest from fans. Republican administration + global warming + happy democratic propaganda = not happy youth. And when the youth finally get restless, there is often hell to pay.


Both thrash and grindcore seem to be rising sharply from my point of view. Maybe the some of the youth is finally losing a thick veil of insanity and coming to realize the inherent flaws of the modern world? Or perhaps they're just whining like almost everyone else.

Recent Obituary work is just a waste of space and time, so I second what WVB just stated.

"Redneck Stomp"  ;)

It isn't horrible like Slaughter of the Soul, but it is still a direct step in that direction. What I dislike about it is the simple fact that it is a step towards mundane - why listen to this when you can listen to Gardens of grief, Red in the Sky is Ours, or The Burning Darkness?

A similar case for me is Slayer...where Seasons in the Abyss isn't a bad album by any means, it is simply inferior to South of Heaven and Raining Blood, so why spend time on it when the other two achieve a similar goal much better?

Time is valuable, and I'd rather listen to a masterpiece than a pseudo-good melodic death album. Period.

Apparently you dont understand the meaning of opinion. If what you said was true then children of bodom wouldnt be touring. I happen to be a big fan of both lamb of god and children of bodom.


Agreed! Right on!

Zipped .txt files work on the same sites as music is uploaded, yes.

And as for the Palahniuk, I doubt you'll get flamed, but if you do, then so be it. I wouldn't fear the members here if I were you.

I sorta figure a list of stuff is better than these links. Can't we just get the title and go to a library and get the real thing?


Lists of reccoemnded books are welcome as well, as are reviews. This is mostly for literature-related talk and contribution, whether this simply be intelligent discussion, reccomendations, reviews, links, or anything else that you think might fit the topic.

The purpose of this thread is for the members here to upload zipped .txt files of books, make reccomendations, post reviews, give links to hubs where a great deal might be located, et cetera...

Similarly to the Music-sharing system, it would be nice if members who take from this thread also make some attempt to give.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Online-hosted books --

http://digital.library.upenn.edu/books/

There are a great deal of books and texts available at the link above, including some books which have otherwise been banned. However sadly, many authors who should be there aren't, and we're left lacking.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Julius Evola - Men among the ruins was paired with a certain CD and hosted by a certain member (I forgot which CD and which member, so I apologise for the lack of credit) in the music area a while back.... I think it might have been paired with Incantation. Nonetheless, here it is now in case that link timed out.

More to come, and hopefully others will join in.

I was about 4 or 5 and had some trouble comprehending at first, but they tried to give me their "soft" secular-humanist view about how we don't really have any clue what happens after death.


I have to ask how admitting that we have no fucking clue what happens after death classifies as 'soft'. There's no proof for anything because to our own sadness, nobody has lived to tell us about it, so we are left to belief and belief only.

Atheism, mind you, is just as comforting a belief system as any other religion. Humanity is a sheepist creature by nature with few exceptions, and are renowned for fearing the unknown, which Atheism, like any other religion helps to erradicate by making the process a known event. A very similar concept to Christianity.

There's no proof for anything (as I already said above), so doesn't it boil down to beliefs as it is? And isn't Atheism a belief as well?

As for when to tell him, I don't plan on having kids, but I guess it would seem logical to tell when he asks as has been suggested. If he's a smart kid from smart genes, he should be pretty eager to learn such things before he's forced into our damned society.
