Interzone / Re: Power as an inherited trait.

I always wondered how the fuck someone becomes a CEO in the first place! I don't know how someone can be so great as to become head of any large corporation and get paid bonuses that an average person could only dream of.  Maybe if they invented some breakthrough new technology or science, maybe, but they just rule over their peasant work force.

I have read his book Nausea and its a great piece of classic literature.  I have not read much of his more philosophical books as I don't have a huge grasp of philosophic lingo, yet I do plan on it.  I believe he influenced many of the 'beat' writers

Interzone / Re: Czech Republic legalizes hallucinogenic drugs

Most drug dealers are subhuman, so naturally I don't do drugs.  I'm not going to befriend some ignorant wigger or hippie because I want drugs.  Occasionally, I will smoke pot when i'm with my friends because I can't resist the urge to get high, though this will be changing soon.  Marijuana is a lot more useful when used sparingly, when its everyday and becomes a habit, it doesn't have the same effect.  Marijuana is for the rich, overpriced much like caviar

Metal / Re: Improving Metal
« on: February 06, 2010, 01:04:59 AM »
I think if metal was not such a social event it would help it immensely.  There is still good metal out there, but its the jam sessions done on a shitty 4 track recorder and may never be heard outside of the participants who created it.  Metal is a big social event now, I'm sure it was before, but now its about 'putting yourself out there', how good you promote yourself, how many friends you have working for relapse.

Metal / Re: Why do metal bands decline as they gain experience?

Of course, Solzhenitsyn was in Gulag when he decided that but that should be the attitude of a metal band. Making the best music possible with no regard to what pats on the back they receive and from who.

Speaking of Solzhenitsyn, have you read The Gulag Archipelago? This book makes Orwell's 1984 seem like paradise and its not even fiction.

I remember many of the subjects on the forums dealt with anthropology and racial issues. There was also a separate metal forum I think a lot of skinheads posted there.

Interzone / Re: Use of nuclear weapons
« on: February 01, 2010, 08:27:54 PM »
I think that the use of the atomic bomb was most likely justified.  However, I find it odd that so much attention is paid to this specific event, and not some of the more horrendous atrocities carried out by the United States during WWII.

I am curious to know some of these horrendous atrocities.  I know about the killings of German and Italian prisoners of war that is rarely ever mentioned in history books(unless it was done by the evil axis powers), I  have also read about mass rape in Okinawa, etc, but im sure thats not an atrocity to most and is 'just war'.

Interzone / Use of nuclear weapons
« on: January 30, 2010, 06:46:27 PM »
It seems in the end of every discussion I have about this subject everyone agrees that it was the ethical or 'right' thing to do.  Which is fine, I could care less, its war.  But what really angers me is the hypocrisy in this thinking; if Hiroshima bombing was the right thing to do, why wouldn't 9/ll and other forms of terrorism be wrong?  You never hear about Hiroshima or Nagasaki as a Genocide; which it technically was.  If people would just  agree that It was a 'Genocide' this would not irk me so much but obviously its not genocide if the United States did it, a Empire that has a military base in just about every fucking country in the world.

Interzone / Ernst Junger

I was introduced to this man's work with the book, 'Storm of Steel' , when I had an obsession with World War 1.  Since then, I have read many of his works that have been translated in English.  For the most part they are harder to find, but you can get an old copy for less than the new James Patterson book.  I find his writing style very subtle, imaginary, with the beauty of life in coexistence with the ugly.  He has become one of my favourite classic writers; and one of the last.  I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts and opinions on this writer.

Calling those bands you seen "Screamo" is the equivalent to calling Cradle of Filth blackmetal.  Quit going to shitty shows.

Interzone / The British and war
« on: March 13, 2009, 09:13:58 PM »
First time post here, been meaning to.   I just got done watching a movie called Zulu Dawn, a fantastic film about The Battle of Isandhlwana and how spear throwing Zulu's overwhelms the over confidant British.
Something that was very irritating about the British in the movie was there almost frivolous attitude toward war.  It seemed like they were playing a simple game of polo the whole time.  Even while getting slaughtered and overrun they had their little witticisms.  I thought it was just the movie being stereotypical or was just my perception of it.   After the movie i picked up a book i been reading 'Rites Of Spring' by Mordris Eksteins, a book mostly about pre and post ww1 Europe.  And I came across this:

-Not only the Germans but the French scoffed at British attitudes at times.  The British simply did not take anything seriously. "They consider  the war a sport," complained Louis Mairet.  They are "too calm and inclined to a who-gives-a-damn attitude." (p.124)

I just thought this was interesting and would have better luck sharing this here than anywhere else.

Metal / punk/hardcore

I know im breaking new grounds in bringing this here of all places.    I can see myself getting some nasty comments but i'll ask anyways.  What is your outlook on this type of music?  I think it has a very raw aesthetic and is powerful music much like blackmetal.   I dont know if it has a political agenda behind it, but i notice with bands like Amebix, tragedy, warcollapse that they deal with topics such as nihilism, the enviornment, consumerism, hydraulic despotism, etc.   The music isnt always technical, but the minimalism carries just as much emotion as good blackmetal and has a feeling of fowardness that i find to be more than just "entertainment"
