Interzone / Re: Iconographic difficulty of nihilism
« on: September 19, 2013, 02:55:24 AM »
I can't help but be jealous of groups like anarchists, Christians and neo-Nazis. They have interesting if not outright beautiful iconography.

What does nihilism have? We're generally anti-symbol and anti-decoration as it is, so... a black box? An empty page? A starfield of infinite duration? A corpse? A sodomized corpse?

I want cool iconography too. I just don't trust anyone else's.

Nihilism could encompass any form of symbolism and yet not be bound to it. It cannot even be bound to it's own definition. That's why it eludes most people. A genre that can be found in all genres (but for the most part is not).

Personally though I've found the best man cave is in a loving women.

Nah. Well assuming that isn't a vag joke, which if it is, i don't know why you would add loving.

Almost all males have a strong psychological need for freedom (that only comes from being alone), which has to be balanced against basic social needs. It usually manifests itself in cycles. A clingy female exacerbates the problem, and just makes the male more emotionally distant.

"Man cave" is just a meme spawned by this basic behavioral pattern. The underlying drive has nothing to do with the locale itself, the activities performed there, or feminism. Feminism is the resentful, "me too", victim sentiment expressed by the "Woman Cave" article, and the commenters below it.

You might be right. But what I mean to say is I've never been one to need my space, aside from away from the rest of  society in it's current state. It's for this same reason that I wouldn't eat rotting fruit either.

In the home environment I couldn't think of anything worse than sitting in the shed drinking beer or playing darts or whatever the mainstream interpretation/implication of a man in his mancave does.

''We knew what we did was unacceptable
But our hearts were by evil love chained''

I think that's my all time favourite black metal lyric.

Metal / Re: Morbid Angel > Incantation

Objectively they are easily on par with one and other, though subjectively I prefer Incantation. I would probably agree that Morbid Angel had a bit more in the way of album structure as well as building on consecutive albums. Though I like how Incantation started doing the doom-styled songs to close the album.

Also, he worked as producer on Elias Merhige's Shadow of the Vampire, which was somewhat of a remake of Werner Herzog's Nosferatu, and quite good too I might add. Prior to that Merhige made, directed, concocted and vomited forth BEGOTTEN which kind of captures something akin to black metal on an aesthetic level.

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.

Very interesting.

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.
