Second-graders who can't tie shoes or zip jackets. Four-year-olds in Pull-Ups diapers. Five-year-olds in strollers. Teens and preteens befuddled by can openers and ice-cube trays. College kids who've never done laundry, taken a bus alone or addressed an envelope.

Are we raising a generation of nincompoops? And do we have only ourselves to blame? Or are some of these things simply the result of kids growing up with push-button technology in an era when mechanical devices are gradually being replaced by electronics?

Susan Maushart, a mother of three, says her teenage daughter "literally does not know how to use a can opener. Most cans come with pull-tops these days. I see her reaching for a can that requires a can opener, and her shoulders slump and she goes for something else."

Metal / DOC CUDD plays the anvil
« on: September 29, 2010, 01:02:53 PM »
Quote
Doc Cudd, of Barnardsville, master blacksmith at the Biltmore Estate, gave a unique performance, gently hammering on the solid steel anvil and evoking a lovely chimelike sound. He aimed to surprise his listeners. “They think it's going to be bonk, bonk, bonk,” Cudd said.

Rather than craft some recognizable tune, Cudd followed an ancient code created centuries ago by blacksmith masters instructing their strikers to make some tool. Cudd, who has been blacksmithing since age 10 and playing anvil since 15, said it's a rare art.

“My family has been (blacksmithing) for over 400 years,” he said. “There are only four of us in America who still play (anvil) that we know of.” It was his only scheduled fair performance.

Metal / YNGWIE MALMSTEEN returns with "Relentless"
« on: September 29, 2010, 12:53:00 PM »
Quote
"Shred guitar" and "neo classical metal" are two phrases that have been commonplace in the world of heavy metal  for decades by this point, but both can be attributed to the unmistakable work by Yngwie Malmsteen. Ever since the early 1980's, Yngwie has been pushing the limits of guitar, and influencing countless other players in the process. And he continues to impress to this day, as evidenced by his forthcoming album, 'Relentless,' the highly anticipated follow-up to 2008's critically acclaimed 'Perpetual Flame' (Yngwie's first album for Rising Force Records).

The album is the second to feature ex-Judas Priest and Iced Earth singer Tim "Ripper" Owens, and features over 60 minutes of incredibly complex, kick ass arrangements.

Metal / TEA PARTY praises mosh pits

“This is a matter of culpability. What freak dancing is isn’t just like the safety of mosh pitting. … This is sexually explicit activity for minors. We do limit the expression of minors. There are drinking laws. There are—you know, you have to be 18 to smoke. You can’t go to school in a bikini. On one hand, you have people saying this is squelching their freedom, and then you scratch your head and say look over here, date rape is such an epidemic. There’s a connection, and, if people realize that there’s a connection, then they’ll realize that these limitations and restrictions exist for a very valid reason.” -- May 15, 2003, "The O'Reilly Factor"

No to freak dancing, yes to mosh pits and death metal! Go TEA PARTY!!1!

A leader needs the guts to stand alone and look ridiculous.

Now comes the first follower with a crucial role: he publicly shows everyone how to follow. Notice the leader embraces him as an equal, so it’s not about the leader anymore—it’s about them, plural.

“It takes guts to be a first follower! You stand out and brave ridicule, yourself. Being a first follower is an under-appreciated form of leadership. The first follower transforms a lone nut into a leader.”

The 2nd follower is a turning point: it’s proof the first has done well. Now it’s not a lone nut, and it’s not two nuts. Three is a crowd.

A movement must be public. Make sure outsiders see more than just the leader. Everyone needs to see the followers, because new followers emulate followers—not the leader. Now here come 2 more, then 3 more. Now we’ve got momentum. This is the tipping point! Now we’ve got a movement!

“As more people jump in, it’s no longer risky. They won’t be ridiculed, they won’t stand out, and they will be part of the in-crowd, if they hurry. Over the next minute you’ll see the rest who prefer to be part of the crowd, because eventually they’d be ridiculed for not joining.”

http://www.counter-currents.com/2010/09/join-the-dance/

tl;dr Don't be afraid to do what others aren't, because if you can encourage someone to join you, you destroy the illusion that "everyone agrees" you must be wrong. And with that consensus lost, your critics lose legitimacy.

Metal / SLAYER: big four tour still possible
« on: September 24, 2010, 04:31:44 PM »

In 1991, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax  toured under the Clash of the Titans banner. Nearly 20 years later, the same bands are touring together again, only this time, they'e performing on the Jägermeister Tour. It's like the continuation of this summer's American Carnage, which boasted Testament instead of Anthrax. Looks like Slayer and Megadeth are happy to be bedfellows, er, tourfellows.

So how does King now reflect on his career, 20 years later, with Slayer are still going strong? He does so in a simple yet philosophical way. "When you are younger, you think of the age you are now as old, but when you become that age, you don't feel old. You don't know what to expect. You get there and feel good. You think, 'Will I feel this good in 10 years? Absolutely not.' But when I get there? Maybe!"

We asked King a few months ago if American audiences would be treated to the Big Four -- Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax -- since far, far away lands like Bulgaria got to witness the spectacle. At the time, he said that everyone involved would love to see it happen. So Noisecreep had to see if any forward progress had been made.

"Even though it's four bands used to headlining on their own, ego is not a problem. There is an understood pecking order of how we should play, but it's a logistical nightmare. Ask anyone who did it, and they will say they were happy to be a part of it. It'd have to be in the planning stages of whoever plans that s---," King said.

Metal / HEAVY METAL "has retreated" from its peak
« on: September 24, 2010, 02:51:20 PM »
Quote
For a short period around the turn of the 1990s, however, the genre's compulsive need to outflank itself spiralled into genuine evil. The Californian quartet Slayer coined the loudest, fastest, ugliest sound to date, with one song, Angel of Death, relating the horrors of Josef Mengele's Auschwitz. In Norway, a small network of bands plunged headlong into Satanism, and torched some churches around Oslo. In 1993, Varg Vikernes, aka Burzum, murdered his main rival.

Metal had reached its furthest perimeter, and has since retreated a considerable distance.

A simple genetic test can help predict whether psychopaths convicted of violent crimes are prone to be repeat offenders, a Finnish researcher said Tuesday.
"It has long been known that there is a biological, a genetic element to psychotic tendencies," said Helsinki University researcher Matti Virkkunen, who co-authored a study published in Psychiatric Research.

The research, which was a joint Finnish-American project, showed that convicts who scored high on both a traditional behavioural disorder test and had a certain gene variance were far more likely to commit additional violent crimes than those who scored high on the test but did not have the same gene variance.

Apparently females like using band names as tags (Super junior, McFly), while males prefer finding lots of ways to say the same thing (metal, jazz). Most importantly we have just used science to prove that men don’t listen to much k-pop.

There is a folk tale about the overthrow of Mongol rule facilitated by messages smuggled in moon cakes.

Mooncakes were used as a medium by the Ming revolutionaries in their espionage effort to secretly distribute letters in order to overthrow the Mongolian rulers of China in the Yuan dynasty. The idea is said to be conceived by Zhu Yuanzhang (朱元璋) and his advisor Liu Bowen (劉伯溫), who circulated a rumor that a deadly plague was spreading and the only way to prevent it was to eat special mooncakes. This prompted the quick distribution of mooncakes, which were used to hide a secret message coordinating the Han Chinese revolt on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month.[2]

Another method of hiding the message was printed in the surface of mooncakes as a simple puzzle or mosaic. In order to read the encrypted message, each of the four mooncakes packaged together must be cut into four parts each. The 16 pieces of mooncake, must then be pieced together in such a fashion that the secret messages can be read. The pieces of mooncake are then eaten to destroy the message.

What foods of yours carry secret messages? None? FALE
