Listening to Slayer, repetitively all day long, as loud as humanly possible... was more fulfilling than any western holiday I've ever experienced. Lets see it grow exponentially at next year's celebration with some media coverage of mass rioting by a crazed mob of metal-heads in blood stained Slayer t-shirts! SSSSSLLLLLAAAAAAYEEEEEER!!

Do you think we're really commiting "ecocide", destroying our planet, or is it too strong and too big for us to do that?

Most people think of ecocide as a sudden change, like on Friday life is OK, and Saturday is a nuclear wasteland.

Wait, so you are telling me that I just changed all of my incandescent lighting to energy efficient CFL lighting for nothing?! According to the information on the packaging, I am being 'green' and helping to improve our planet by powering an entire SCHOOL with the lifetime of ONE bulbs energy saving... why I oughta!

The unseen future is rarely considered by most, as many chose the passive 'live in the moment' lifestyle... While this only pleases the present and immediately foreseeable future of events, the negative drawbacks of natural destruction which are always gradual decline, are only seen as an immediate impact and eventually dissipate into the mind.. a lot of people I've ever met reserve thinking passed a few weeks time into the future, anything after is like the death of time.. a very backwards way of 'progression', eh? It always grinds me to hear environmentalists rattle on about progression, yet the future is always capped by living in the moment.. and not making any movement.

Some pretty interesting folks. From my memory they had a pretty wide variety of old books on the occult and some awesome medieval weaponry.

Accepting these events as an inevitability before they happen, as a part of the continuation of life. As well as living with as much purpose as possible, while being constructive amidst the demise of civilization and a decaying society.. all of these allow one to focus on what is most real, and reject what is unnecessary... and hopefully influence others to do the same.

This.

The basic principle for any argument I'd of come up with... we abuse our planet daily, by raping the natural resources given. We denude forestry in favor of shopping malls and housing plans.. We are slowly turning Earth into a soulless, concrete/asphalt scab...

Sodomize the soul! At the Gates latest smash hit featuring Mikael Akerfeldt.

I wonder how many times the contest judge had to look up utilitarian.

Also: "If you ever find yourself becalmed in hopelessness, sometimes what you need is not an assurance that it will all turn out OK. You might instead need a battle call, an affirmation of what you see, and a commitment to at least in your heart fight it, and possibly to branch out more." <- Beautiful words. I can bet that none of the other entries defend their cause better than that...

Just last month a relative commit suicide. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis about 4 years prior, which he continued his drunken/doped up lifestyle for two years with the disease until it grew into a debilitating state as he was losing coordination and balance and within the last few months of his life was having trouble coping with it, as it gotten worse... He eventually turned to anti-depressants which altered his moods drastically from day to day.

His doctors threw every kind of medication at him they could, he was on supplemental income as well as state funded insurance, could it be these doctors were really just pharmaceutical salesman? His condition never got any better, but they were always ensuring him that the bi-weekly appointments with neurologists and the $3,000 injections were keeping him alive. I am not trying to make a case for him, as he was a waste his entire 38 years of life, no family.. never had a real job, lived at home with his mother, and was a huge asshole.. up to the day the hung himself.

I feel anti-depressants are in place to let people cope with life's difficulties in the most passive form... pop a couple of pills and everything will be alright, or so they tell you. You feel too chemically good now to worry about the future..  In a world where everyone blindly denies reality in favor of their own hedonistic ways, this is how problems are handled. Let them go for as long as possible, as long as you feel good at the moment. Most of the people I know who have taken them, abuse them to get stoned on.. Just like any other temporal drug.. the problem is never solved. It will keep chasing you, and eventually catch up.. like it did my uncle.

The general sense I get from outsiders here is that Americans have kinda turned into douchebags and that they were much more social 20 years ago.

America at this point is very fucking superficial - in everything. You see grandiose buildings in the classical style architecture but made with the cheapest building materials available. Expensive furniture that looks good on the outside but is made of particle board. Food that's arranged on your plate in a highly decorative way but has no flavor.

Indeed, the funny thing is the majority of Americans are constantly convincing themselves and others that this is the best it is, and we should just make due with what we have.

The will to aspire or achieve is financially dependent, and the only motivation most see.

The autonomous blur of 'community' now is a passing leer or suspecting nod... at least here in the city, anyway.

People don't talk anymore.. and when they do, its about how it used to be, or about themselves. Quality isn't easy to come by. The only way you could compare is if you've spent enough time in various regions on each continent. There are shitheads in every city..

From what I've read and what others have told me it all varies from region to region... but for the most part I'd probably agree with that statement once I get the chance to see it for myself.

Most American's are aware of this environmental disaster, yet the only response I seem to hear is the pouring outrage of gas prices forthcoming. Most are hardly concerned I feel...

Hell, even our liberal satirists Colbert and Stewart are garnering a good chuckle out of it. I mean, why take it to heart? Its only a bunch of silly old marine life that are going to suffocate from lack of oxygen in the water...  We should put Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in a tank of sweet crude. At least we wouldn't have morons developing political opinions from pop satirists any longer.

Metal / Re: ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME? Riffs
« on: May 03, 2010, 12:11:20 AM »
It's no wonder these conformist metal personalities have so many problems. They fear the world around them so very much that they spend so much time as unhealthy introverts that they're probably CREATING problems for themselves. A sitting of Siddhartha's teachings could essentially cure all of these ailments, but I think they don't want to be cured. They're so in love with themselves, and happily curled up in their microcosmic ovums in which no outside influence will ever get though their hardened exterior temple walls without hearing the phrase, "ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME?."

NO WAY PUNK.

Why should they have done something difficult (being original) when it's easier to just rip off what you heard (Exhorder, Metallica) break it down so it is more appealing to fans of pop music..and ultimately capitalize off of it?

You are right, they are were too into themselves..  they viewed metal as a big jumping house party, where everyone is invited for beers and blunts and KICKIN' ASS.. so they wrote music that reflected it. Lest we forget these boys were all glittered up back in the 80's... They were panderers. They just got lucky that their music suited the popular-metal niche at the time.

This reminds me, I need to take a trip up to Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania. It's supposed to be a very dark, secluded location with very little light pollution.

This is awesome. Cool post.
