Interzone / How do you want to die?
« on: November 11, 2013, 07:55:02 AM »
In battle?

Old age?

Eaten by a tiger?



Personally, I'd opt for any except for AIDS or old age. I'm not a fan of letting death sneak up on me.

Interzone / Leftists want to Track future Death Metal listeners with GPS
« on: November 08, 2013, 11:34:04 AM »
Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder to ask the Department of Justice to fund GPS tracking devices for autistic children--even though there are private companies that already offer this service.

14-year old Avonte Oquendo disappeared from his Long Island school a month ago. He has autism and does not speak. Unfortunately, he has not been found. Parents with autistic children are joining forces with Schumer, who issued a statement:

"The sights and sounds of NYC and other busy places can be over-stimulating and distracting for children and teens with Autism, often leading to wandering as a way to escape. Voluntary tracking devices will help our teachers and parents in the event that the child runs away and, God forbid, goes missing. DOJ already funds these devices for individuals with Alzheimer's and they should do the same for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Funding this program will help put school systems and parents of children and teens with Autism at ease knowing where their children are."


Interzone / Humans are not Intelligent
« on: November 08, 2013, 10:42:40 AM »
If humans are the most intelligent creatures around, why have they destroyed the ecosystem that sustains them?

Why have they created social systems they despise?

Why did they invent nu-metal?

Do humans have any redemptive traits?

Metal / Early / Ancient / Medieval / Folk / Classical Music in Audiofile
« on: October 31, 2013, 10:07:25 AM »
Right now this thread is a cluttered mess and doesn't lend itself well to specific groups/ensembles that deserve their own page.

What I'm thinking:

Create a single resource thread that links to other threads based an on different criteria.


Early Music
Medieval Music
Folk Music

Each of these links takes to its specific page.


Early Music


Each of these Country links takes the reader to another thread devoted to that topic.


Early Greek Music


Each link then takes the reader to the specific audiofile page.

This could be applied to Classical music as well.

Interzone / Modernist Distortion
« on: September 24, 2013, 05:17:17 AM »
Angela Merkel won an overwhelming endorsement from German voters, putting the country’s first female chancellor on course for the biggest election tally since Helmut Kohl’s post-reunification victory of 1990.

Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc took 41.5 percent to 25.7 percent for the Social Democrats of Peer Steinbrueck in yesterday’s election, according to results from all 299 districts. That leaves her short of a majority and needing a coalition partner to govern Europe’s biggest economy.


In modernity, 41.5% of the approximately 70% of people that bother to vote is an "overwhelming endorsement".

Interzone / Remember the Fallen
« on: August 17, 2013, 12:16:50 AM »
A group called The American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) is planning a one million Muslims march to Washington D.C. on September 11th.
"On 9.11.01 our country was forever changed by the horrific events in New York. The entire country was victimized by the acts done on that day. Muslim and Non Muslim alike were traumatized but we as Muslims continue 12 years later to be victimized by being made the villains. To this day every media outlet and anti Islamic organization has committed slanderous and libel statements against us as Muslims and our religion of Islam.
These lies told to the American population has made it impossible for us to do true Dawa. Why do we have to defend our religion while doing Dawa? Why can’t we just share the perfection of the Quran and the beauty of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SWS)?"


Interzone / Representation of male feminsm
« on: August 12, 2013, 04:16:15 AM »
This could still turn out to be some kind of hoax, but it appears that prominent male feminist Hugo Schwyzer went off his meds after his recent public shaming and desperate cry for attention ”suicide attempt,” and then had a massive confessional Twitter meltdown.
If these tweets were really from Hugo, he’s admitted that he did it all for the nookie — and some desperately needed attention. He’s admitted that he “talked his way into teaching women’s studies” on the basis of two undergrad courses (his expertise is apparently in British medieval church history) and then “built a career as a well-known online male feminist.” He said he “read one book of Kimmel’s and made [himself] an expert on men and masculinity.” He’s said that he “kept mocking socially awkward men as creeps as a way of making [himself] look better.” He admitted to using his status as a male feminist sexually, even to have sex with a porn star. He “wrote an article in the Atlantic condemning age-disparate relationships the same week that [he] was sleeping with a 23 year-old. And sexting a 27 year-old.” He said that he “I loved being the most notorious bad boy male feminist out there,” and that he “cultivated that shit so hard.”


A Montreal man has been ordered to pay $8,000 to a panhandler after an email he wrote complaining about her presence outside a liquor store was deemed discriminatory by the province's human rights commission.
In the end, the commission ruled in the woman’s favour, calling the defendant's actions “highly reprehensible.“

It found that, through his email, the man had violated her rights and ordered him to pay the victim a total of $8,000 for moral and punitive damages.


Interzone / Senses
« on: April 22, 2013, 01:11:04 PM »
While I'm walking in the forest, I've noticed that my senses seem to expand. I have a 360 degree sphere of perception rather than noticing only what's in front of me. (Hearing especially. it's amazing how much sound I block out during the day.)

Does technology induce stupor? If we paid full attention to our surroundings would we go crazy?

Metal / Darkthrone's Decay Continues

Peaceville has released a preview of Darkthrone's new album: Click to listen

Are any of the Norwegian bands still relevant?

Interzone / High Kwality Education

Perhaps if these women were in real relationships, they wouldn't need a class for this.
