I will be holding a "Slay-in" in Madison, WI.  I will obviously be blaring the Slayer classics.  I was just wondering what else might be appropriate to add to my playlist?  I was thinking "Blackened Images."  Maybe some Sadistic Intent.  Any other suggestions?

But wouldn't it be even more "egotistical" of me to think that by simply not going to church I am somehow crippling the entire Christian religion?

I think instead of attacking the church, and the moral/community/family structure that goes with it, we should infiltrate the church and remove the bad philosophy from it.


Exactly.


And what do you get out of it? Also, you sound like a teenager, get over yourself.

 It was like the Immolation song, "I feel nothing".


What do I get out of it?  Nothing, really.  Just a few smiles.  It takes 50 minutes out of my week, and I don't go every week - big deal - I have all the time in the world.  Why do I do something that "gives" me "nothing" in return, you ask?  Probably 'cause I'm over myself.  I agree with the Immolation song reference, though.  The service, itself, does nothing for me - I more or less zone out.  I've read Nietzsche's books over and over for years now, and I thoroughly understand how Christianity is Slave Morality.  I'm not a Christian, but I go to church every now and then.  That's it.  I guess I go for the "communal aspect."  It's good for the young people of the church to see a healthy, 20-something year old, with long, wild hair as opposed to the fat, crippled, run-down, people on the verge of death that make up the majority of the church.  Opiates and Heroin are starting to invade the town I grew up in (WTF?).  I figure Christianity is preferrable to that lifestyle for the youth of my community.  And if you think I'm stroking my ego by implying that the entire community is relying on me to go to church to save the kids, you underestimate the power of simply "making an appearance."  I admit it's not much, but it's something.

Interzone / I go to church

I was raised Catholic and in the past few months I've been going back to church every now and then.  It's the same church I grew up at.  I meet my parents there and sit with them.  My parents are so happy to see me and it makes my family stronger.  I'm somewhat well known in my community (I worked at the public library for a year and I was a pretty good football player in high school).  I get a lot of smiles and nods from the people at church.  I especially relish the smiles and nods from the young people who are still "forced" to go to church by their parents.  When I worked at the public library, I met a bright young kid there and he's an altar boy.  He really lights up and almost laughs when he sees me there.  I guess I'm being a "fake," but I feel in some really really small way, it makes my community and family just a little stronger.  It seems everybody's a "rebel" these days.  So how do you become a real "rebel," any more?  You rebel against the rebels.

on a side note, I noticed that the "sign of the cross" is ACTUALLY an INVERTED cross!  you go from the forehead, to the the middle of the chest, to both shoulders - hahaha!

it doesn't mean "conform," necessarily.  It does mean "get with the program," to an extent.  I say, simply:  pick and choose your battles wisely.  Don't waste time and energy on EVERY "battle."

I thought the spoken introduction was unnecessary and lame.  It just kind of threw me off - I almost laughed.  I don't know...I guess it's not a big deal.  Anybody have the lyrics?

Is that not from one of Pekka-Eric Auvinen's video manifestos? It takes on a more visceral context with that in mind.


AHHHHHHH.  I see.  Well if that's true, I DO think differently of it.  I had no idea.  I thought it was NHV.  If this is true, it's not quite as lame.

DARKTHRONE. Not such a big fan of Mayhem but can't say they didn't contribute too.


yeah, Darkthrone seems necessary.

if you look at the last 60 years of history, it is clear that "BNW" is much closer to what is actually unfolding in reality.

I should clarify that the present scale is probably pretty close to final.  If we've forgotten anything essential, that is most important.  Any specific feedback on the above is also interesting (unless it isn't).

I see. In that case I would add George Orwell's "1984" and R.W. Emerson's "Representative Men" to the list. I don't know if the content of those is redundant if compared with the books already on the list, but like I said, I'm not familiar with most of the titles.

I would tentatively say "1984" is unnecessary given that "Brave New World" is on the list.  And in my opinion, "BNW" is the superior book, anyway.

Don Quixote

and not to be a douche, but Fukuyama's title is "The End of HISTORY and the Last Man."

I think "Genealogy of Morals" or "Beyond Good & Evil" is more representative of Nietzsche than either "The Antichrist" or "Thus Spake."  "Antichrist" is quite beligerent and Nietzsche comes across somewhat petty, this is one of Nietzsche's later books, and he seems to be on the decline.  "Thus Spake" always struck me as unnecessarily disorienting given the fact that it's Nietzsche's philosophy in the guise of "fiction."  If you're going to have one book by Nietzsche, "Beyond Good & Evil" is a great catch-all.

Mortuary - 'Abyss Angel' the "phrase/riff" starting @ 2:20 and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly "theme."  Am I off on this one?  At the very least it REMINDS me of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

Forget pointless grammar. Why do we speak? To communicate messages. Following grammatical rules can often add to the meaning of our message, but it is not essential. If you want to come of as a professional follow the rules to the core. Yet for the most part, its irrelevant. Language is an instinct, it grows and changes as we do. We don't need to map it out all the time. There is nothing wrong with making it up as we go, that is how its always done. The meanings of things can change, its never meant to be set in stone in absolute. Its ridiculous to do that.

Some people find a need to read all the rules of the English language and follow them. Why? Because some people need an ego boost by feeling superior by using the English language the "right" way. As if that ever existed.

Is it that baffling to think the usage of the word discriminate can change? Is it even bad at all? So what if masses redefine some words. This isn't an attack on "correct" grammar completely. I just don't think there is a point to always follow the rules of the English language if it does nothing to enhance



I totally disagree.  It's very important to understand the proper use and origins of words.  Nietzsche was trained as a philologist, not a philosopher, by the way.  In Geneaology of Morals, Nietzsche shows the "evolution" of the words "bad," and "evil," and how they share a mutual antonym - "good."  By pointing this out, Nietzsche is able to build a foundation on which to critique slave morality.

Your line of thinking could result in a homogenization of language in which all words start to mean the same thing and thus we are able to express ourselves less specifically (that would be bad).  I think Schopenhauer said once the Latin language is forgotten, we will be nothing more than barbarians.

Metal / Blackened Images

Mortuary "Blackened Images" - what an album!

Listen to the first track, the "riff"/phrase starting at 2:20 almost sounds like The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.  Is their any other metal that sounds like this?

hey just to let everyone know, they got back to me today - so they are, indeed, still selling CDs.  anybody interested in picking up Mortem's "Decomposed by Possession" or "The Devil Speaks in Tongues," they are well stocked and only $8 and $10, respectively.
