The list is terrible and anyone who disagrees should be sent to the GULags.

Candidate for most clueless post-1993 `black metal` band. Unintentionally funny.

I don't know trystero, this is better than anything Darkthrone has released since 1995.

Wagner makes me feel bored every single time I listen to it. It is not lack of concentration or interest as I sit through Beethoven symphonies or Haydn sonatas just concentrating on the movements in the music.  Even if I take the approach of listening to Wagner as I listen to Burzum (letting it wash over me and just "ride the tide" werever this stream takes me) I do not feel any pull, I don't feel like I am being lead anywhere.
 

I agree.

Crowdism...It's external to the religion itself, which is widely misinterpreted.

I've seen you claim this multiple times, but I've never seen you talk about it further. I'd like you to explain why you think this is so, as I would maintain that what's presented of the Nazarene is a record of him trying to appeal to the LCD of his society at all times. The story is filled with praise of the weak, the sick, and the stupid.

What's A&E?

I'm glad you're back to the realms of the living...as to the foxes, not it's not at all obvious. I didn't know Britain still had wild animals, let alone foxes.

I'm not familiar with any of those people. The only contemporary Christian writer I've read is Peter Hitchens, whose blatant and blunt approach in the British media I am very entertained by; though there is a point where his beliefs stop short of where I'm willing to go, which is true for any Christian I've come across (innate populism/religious humanism). Though, he does support the monarchy in a meaningful fashion, which is very intriguing.

I'm not very fond of the terms "reactionary" or "conservative", since they imply that they arise only as a reverse approach to an existing stimulus. It assumes the designation of "progress" to have meaning.

Additionally, "conservative" in the mass consciousness has come to mean "identifying with the values of the American/French Revolution", which is actually the reverse of what we would prefer. (I recently had a discussion with a Marxist academic who stated that the "emancipation of women" was compatible with conservatism. I didn't know how to respond. I guess it appears that way if your view of history starts in the 18th century...this guy also thought Thatcher was a lower-case conservative...)In reality, the American "founding fathers" were "crowdists" and I have severe problems when Amerika.org praises that era of our history as if it was ideal...why Brett Stevens praises Reagan/Romney etc is another thing that I do not understand.

I agree with you that there should be terms to distinguish between populations, however I'm irritated that the left has hijacked all the terminology. I've started using the term "reality-based thinkers" in conversations to describe views such as Amerika.org when talking to people who think George Bush was a conservative. Catches them off guard, since they have no pre-built reaction to the term.

Isn't Brett Stevens a conservative thinker who accurately assess metal?

User reviews on MA and such were a possible future, but we all know how that turned out.

I don't want my worship interrupted with attempts to guilt me into giving money to people supposedly trying to help starving homosexual minorities in Africa.

Which churches support homosexual minorities in Africa?

Christian churches.

So, you're not biased, or anything, then?

I am biased in favor of taking churches seriously.

Something very few Christians do these days.
