Well, what a relief it must be to be able to tell us about it.
Texture is the thing, really, although sheer mass comes a close second.
The smell is sort-of a given, considering the subject matter.

Although you young guys wouldn't know it, eating all the crap you probably do, the buoyancy factor is another thing worthwhile mentioning. Do they float? How high do they float? This is important stuff.

I was almost gonna mention that, but being upper-class, decided against it :)

Uh, this is probably a dumb question but whats it like to be old?

Fuckin' brilliant. If you do it right. And that has a lot to do with acceptance of aches, pains, and stuff you can't control.
I hope you get to be old. It's an experience that is not to be missed if at all possible.
Being young is considerably more distressing.

Like power metal? Cool, man.

Power windbags and power brass. Stuff from our childhoods. Bandstands in the park on sunny Sundays :)

Not everybody else.
Neither I, nor my wife, listen to music at all. For some very compelling reasons.
On the rare occasions that we do, in very small doses, it is music that inspires, or reminds us of vanished glory.
We're old, see?

I wasn't asking to find anything out. You may have noticed I never do that.
I was asking that others might share their views on these things, since this is a forum.
Through discussion, may be reached a consensus, enriched by facets previously unconsidered.
The conclusion may not be different from the premise, but will probably result in becoming richer.

Hell is hating yourself?
I see hell as being unable to pass from life to death, as a result of clinging onto things that can't be taken with you when you go. Intelligence being foremost among these things. Hell, then, is a quasi-death, plagued by eternal thoughts.
While death, itself, is a final laying-aside of thought, along with everything else but consciousness.

I lovingly place flowers upon your graves, and tend the garden that grows around you.
For flowers exist from the goodness of your remains. I return them to you.
Besides, it looks prettier than blood-spattered bones and the fungus of decay.

It is good that you describe what you believe in. Or what you believe.
Each refinement makes a stronger case, or reveals fallacy for what it is.
I did this, unwillingly, with my despising of leftism. I had to, in order to focus my necessary defense against it.

Death vs. Hell. Who knows the difference? Is there one?
Gather round the campfire and tell your stories. If you have any.
Share what you think you know. Or what you actually know.
Near death, full death, death beyond, and beyond death.
Stories from Hell...

Simplification is the special talent of crows.
What you find beautiful is ugly to those you see as inferior.
Those you see as inferior find you ugly.
You admit to fearing what you worship?
A mirrored reflection of concepts like Christianity, then.

I do not judge this, and to have any discourse upon the subject, this should be understood.
I am a crow, and as you may know, in native cultures, across all times and in all places, crows have always been messengers between the living and the dead. Able to inhabit both realms at once.

You fellas are obsessed with death and deathly things, which is fine by me. But I am not. While I live, I am obsessed with life. But being a crow, I have beaten life to death, and having tasted death, am content to leave it in its rightful place: the realm of all those who no longer live.

I find myself perfectly, and inevitably, well-placed, on this unlikely forum, since it is so intimately connected with death.
While carrying messages received from here, back to the realm of the living, and vice-versa.

There was always something about the title of this thread that bothered me.
"Defining God..."

Being as how if there is a God, then I, and you, as in y'all, are creations of the creator.
Does a creation define its creator? This seems unlikely.

"Describing God" might be a better way to put all of this.

I have decided, after due consideration, to view metalheads as people who - through no fault of their own - took a wrong evolutionary turn, somewhere, and are now living in a parallel universe.
This other universe is as real, to them, as the one they abandoned, albeit without knowing that they left.
And so it is good that forums such as this, exist for them, lest they become isolated and alone.

Art, back in the original universe, is a celebration of life, beauty, and the urge to add to it. To contribute something.
Whereas, in the other parallel universes that the original one gave rise to, art has come to mean many things, often very far removed from the original concept.

Metal seems to be about death, as opposed to life. Do I understand this correctly?

I was accurately describing what I heard, and the effect it had on me.
It really does amaze me to learn that fans relish that experience.
Maybe there are people who enjoy being run down by eighteen-wheelers, too.
There seems no accounting for taste.

There's a thread in this. Working...
