i understood very little of this. Where does one go about finding resources for hacking modern networks?

Merciless - The Awakening. Classic death metal. Not as evolved as most of the bands that made it onto the list but very influential.

Creating art about that which has the power to destroy us is a form of worship. Celebrating the higher functions in nature that will ultimately claim all of us shows that we don't look to deny or postpone the inevitable, but to work alongside it, knowing that one day we must all pay our final due.

Am I reading you right, ASBO?

Holding a bag full of bananas kept the circle-pitters away when the metalcore band (obviously not very memorable, I can't remember their name) was playing, my friends and I watched them finish up their set so we could move to the front when Unleashed came on.  And I like bananas. I stopped at a grocery store to get some earplugs and I thought "why not get some bananas, I'm sure some other people might want one".

Boy was I wrong.

I was at the show at Uncle Pleasant's in Louisville. (to anyone that was there, I was the guy with a bag full of bananas). Unleashed sounded great, a lot of fun live. Obituary filled the entire bar. It got so hot it made us feel like we were gonna suffocate on a cool fall night. People were doing stage dives and accidentally kicking the lights because the ceiling was so low. Their bassist was really close and kept almost hitting me and 3 other people in the face with his bass, we had to dodge it several times, and had I been headbanging he could have knocked me out cold.  And of course, Ralph Santolla ruining every song with his generic solos. He's a good guitarist, sure, but his leads just never match Obituary's music, or most good death metal for that matter. All those things made them a little hard to enjoy, but it was still a good show.

And I could have sworn Doug Cerrito was helping set up Obituary/Unleashed's guitars.

Myst is one of the best games I've ever played. It's not technically 3D because you're navigating through worlds of still images (with the occasional motion sprites for water or falling leaves), but it's still a very enriching experience for the senses.

It's also a good exercise in problem solving. You start out on an island covered with all kinds of strange gadgets, physically impossible landscapes, and puzzles. You have to figure out where you are, how you got there, and how to leave. You navigate to other worlds through books that teleport you.

Most people remember it as one of the first CDROM games.

I give credit to Darkthrone for sticking with their guns and not changing for trends.

Didn't they stop playing death metal and turn to the grainy production black metal right around the time Mayhem and Deathlike Silence were making a name for themselves?

Something occurred to me once when I was watching a local black metal band play on a generous amount of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.

They ripped into their set with blasting warhymns. Not phenomenal composition by any means but that doesn't matter for this story.

Everyone else in the room seemed reluctant to approach these people, clad in leather in corpsepaint with an upside down crucifix on their micstand, their vocalist taking a deliberately antagonistic demeanor (not in a rude way) towards the audience. The crowd (about 25 people) were just hanging out in the back of the room, sipping on beer bottles with their arms crossed.

I approached with childlike curiosity, beholding the chaos they had unleashed. I stood right in front of them, alone. Suddenly, it became clear that the attitude and appearance all had a meaning to it. They were actors, it was all part of a theatric presentation. This vocalist has presented himself as an enemy. An enemy to me, the crowd, to anyone and anything. I was not threatened by them in any way, after all, it's just a role, much like Zombie #4 at the haunted house.

They seemed to emanate hatred, and instead of being insulted or threatened by it, I enjoyed it, toyed with it, mocked it, and gave it back to them...

It's like watching a tsunami. Everyone on the beach is running, but they're doomed anyway. Just stand, watch, and go out in style. Much is the same when an amazing band takes the stage. Some people headbang, some people try to get on some toughguy shit and try to knock people down, and then there's the people who truly appreciate it, taking in every note, being washed away by a force that's larger than life.

Anyway, that's just an experience I had. I was tripping, so take it with a grain of salt.
