Sorcier Des Glaces is planning to release a new album "Ritual of the End" later this year!

Interzone / Re: It is time to reign women in.
« on: March 04, 2012, 07:30:51 AM »
As a younger woman myself, I can agree that most women need reining in - actually, most people do. The average person is a shallow idiot.

I might also add that the trendy "career woman" thing is a result of Westerners living in an industrialized capitalist world. What we call "gender roles" developed in a pre-industrial world where everything was physical. As men and women have bodies suited for different physical jobs, the gender roles developed according to that. There was really no concept of a "labor market" that needed single women in it. Men would hunt for food and plow the fields, women would raise the kids and do the less physically demanding jobs. For a woman, the idea of "having a career" was unattractive, not because women were more virtuous at that time or any retarded bullshit like that, but simply because work needed a relentless physical input that was beyond the strength of women. But in the modern industrial world, getting women out of the home and into the workplace is no big deal. The shit called "work" is done in centrally heated offices, in front of computers. In this push-button world we live in, male strength is simply not needed in the high-income jobs. Women can do these tasks just as easily. Hence, career women and feminism.

I'm pretty sure we'll revert back to our older gender roles if the modern world goes crashing down, though. Scourge put it pretty well.

I don't know, I work a physically intensive job and there are plenty of women who I work with who can do it as well as long as they're in decent shape. I think the real reason many women began working in the first place was because of economic necessity - as the standard of living continues to fall for most in the Western world, having a household where only one partner works is just impractical. Both partners needed to be bringing in income to fund the suburban McMansion, expensive oil, skyrocketing college tuition for kids, etc against mostly stagnant wage levels.

I would reject Nazi music, but not music by Nazis.

Interzone / Re: ANUS Book List

I would strongly suggest adding Jacques Ellul to the book list - although he is a Christian and much of his writing is concerned with Catholic doctrine, "The Technological Society" and "Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes" should be of great interest to readers of this site. I especially recommend "The Technological Society" as a counterpart to Ted Kascynski's  Manifesto.

Don't rely too much on milk; I did the "gallon of milk a day" thing for a couple years and while I did gain muscle, I also gained a brutal case of acid reflux disease that took lots of apple cider vinegar to dispel. Just train hard and consistently and you'll see gains appropriate to your body type. Also do NOT neglect stretching and isolation exercises. Many lifters will guide you away from smaller isolation exercises like shoulder raises because they aren't as effective at building mass. This is true, but they ARE effective at maintaining flexibility in smaller auxiliary muscles, which will prevent injury in the long term. I also strongly suggest yoga to all serious lifters/athletes, the flexibility and improved bloodflow will help prevent many injuries down the line. Between weight lifting and Judo training, I've had to deal with a lot of injuries over the years and trust me, you need some sort of flexibility program to go with your strength program or you'll constantly be getting hurt.

Interzone / Re: Black Women Less Attractive.
« on: March 04, 2012, 06:48:23 AM »
Black American women on average are just more masculine-looking and more likely to be overweight. I'm not against interracial dating, the quality of the partner is the important thing and every race has its high and low quality people. I've had relationships with Hispanic and Asian women before but I personally just don't find most black women as attractive. I would make an exception for North/East African women though, there are a lot of Ethiopians in my neighborhood and many of those women are really quite beautiful.

I majored in education, taught and found it depressing and stressful. Now I'm teaching myself web programming and taking some related coursework in the evenings. I think the freelance, work-from-home lifestyle of a web developer is much more suited to my personality.

Metal / Re: America should have avoided making black metal
« on: January 30, 2011, 10:02:14 PM »
There are some alright American Black Metal bands like Absu and Demoncy but the vast majority of them are largely subpar.  However, I don't really see the cause of this as region (perhaps partly) but more as timing.  Black metal only really became well known enough in America after the second wave in Norway reached its creative apex.  Most bands in Black Metal, regardless of location, after that never really could recapture the greatness of that movement.

True, and the few good Gay Midget Fecal Pr0n (GMFP) bands (Absu, Demoncy, Night Conquers Day) all existed prior to 1996-97.

Are you trying to let on that you know who Conrad was?
 used to visit Unholy Metal often around 10 years ago, and I remember that guy. He was fucking hysterical although people tended to bait him. Was Conrad another anus troll?

Aside from Dissection, Sentenced and Sacramentum, try Dawn's "Slaughtersun". Not terribly original but very well done. Dark Tranquillity's music (up until they signed with Century Media) was good, but it's not really death metal by any stretch of the imagination. Just traditional Maiden-influenced metal with a slight goth touch and raspy vocals.

Unanimated "In The Forest of the Dreaming Dead" is also worth a mention.

Interzone / Re: Teen Depression Linked to Internet Overuse

Seems to confuse cause and effect. Kids aren't depressed because they use the computer too much, they use the computer too much because they're depressed/rejected.

No, that's what the surveys were for. They were not depressed until later. You made the common liberal mistake of ignoring all the evidence and replacing it with your "correct" opinion.

I have a theory as to why the internet causes depression. The longer you are on the internet, the more likely you will stumble upon the ANUS(it's only a matter of time before everyone types anus into google). Confronting reality has been a known cause of depression for millennia.

The survey doesn't take into account the wide variety of external factors in the child's life which could drive them to depression and cause them to seek "refuge" in the internet. From the data, there is no way to infer that the Internet itself causes the depression, unless the kids spent the entire 9 months of the survey period living in an enclosed bio-dome with no outside contact (which would probably make them depressed).

Metal / Re: Hipster Metal

Death to all hipsters.

Indeed. Hipster Metal, or better known by it's gruesome identity as "Post-Metal," like other post-genres ushers in the death of said genre under the guise of one or two or three seemingly OK bands that have supposedly breathed "new life" into an artform on life support. Everyone that follows afterward (and there are SWARMS of followers) does so lacking a necessary foundation that the first Post-genre bands did indeed have. The result is embarrassment, CHEAP embarrassment and ultimately death.

Post genres are truly like the black plague.

Post-Death Metal (Deathcore)
Post-Thrash (Groove/Mall Metal)
Post-Black Metal (DSBM, Narrow Squirting Bowel Movement, RABM and Blah-Blah BM)
Post-Punk (Gothrock/Deathrock)
Post-Hardcore (Emo)
Post-Metal (Hipster Metal)
Post-Doom (Drone Metal)

Boycott all of these.

Whenever I see the musical genre prefix "post", it's like a red flag that means "all charisma removed".
