When I posted this little story, I hadn't thought of the implications of the master/student, that it would be irresponsible for him to tell the student to hang over a cliff. It made sense to me on a metaphorical level. It's hard to tell in words.

Agree. My primary interpretation is that the secret by its very nature cannot be spoken of, lest it ceases to be a secret. I have faith in the master that no real harm would come of this lesson.

The rift between institutionalised gender roles and the compensatory mechanisms of feminism can be hilarious in these times, when not thoroughly sickening.

Admittedly, I might only find the time to listen to some of these releases once every couple of months, but I still listen to them as opposed to not at all.

Blue Velvet is great. Eraserhead is more atmospheric but not as captivating on the whole. Elephant Man is about the only thing Lynch ever made that even closely resembles conventional cinema narrative. I haven't yet seen his later works.

Does this mean to say that what can truly be known can't be spoken of? As soon as it is, it stops being what it is. As much as we can know, it isn't half as much as the one great reality faced in death.

The best form of totalitarianism is the one that'll do everything to convince you that it isn't the totalitarian system.

If only such a governmental system could be honest about what it is (of course, instantaneously ceasing to be what it is while tearing irreversible perforations in the very fabric of the space-time continuum).

I like the part where he drives through town, low-profile, in an army truck and later when he mutters something to himself after seeing that unburned church.  ;)

Hopefully anyone that gets into new Darkthrone might backtrack a bit into their earlier stuff. There's always a chance.

Metal / Musical ornamentation in death-metal
« on: September 07, 2013, 11:50:37 PM »

While looking at this article on the perhaps non-essential bells and whistles that help make music somewhat more musical, I began to wonder how much of this can be found in death-metal. Indeed, the genre may even have developed its very own idiosyncratic musical ornaments without realizing it or at least feeling the need to put a name to it. Perhaps even the overt lack of or disregard for ornamentation is in itself a form of it (thinking particularly of the stylistic shift between the first and second Darkthrone albums).

They definitely had some magic but sadly didn't put in the extra effort to make it really worthwhile. Plus the production almost renders it unlistenable (same problem with Yamatu and the first Ohtar demo. I still listen to Mutiilation - Remains... once in a blue moon. The Vlad Tepes/Belketre split was ok too from memory.
