Interzone / Re: Feminine era
« on: September 21, 2013, 05:08:54 PM »
I often think our civilization is more in a state of general unbalance than overt femininity. Men for example can be even more brutal and uncivilized than ever. There is no expectation or even any functional role of the concept of a 'gentleman'. This problem has compounded generationally. Others delve headfirst into hypersexual promiscuity.

Likewise women have lost all that is sacred about their own sexuality. Relishing in a flamboyant mass-media induced identity of sexual (whore-like) freedom or inversely adopting feminism. They hate what men have become as much as men hate what they have become.

Society on the whole has no direction, nothing sacred. People aren't bound to a common goal because there is no common origin (other than the absolute right of the individual to pursue self-interest). The opposite of how a small village works.

Chris Barnes used to wear an Albert Fish shirt.

From this description, it seems like sloppy half-asses doom metal.
Is any of it worth looking into? And if so what would be to top 3 or so albums in this genre?

Interzone / Beyond a Man's Cave

Ildjarn had the Hardanger highlands, Nietzsche had the forests and foothills of Sils Maria.
It seems a common enough theme that a man must have something to write home about.

I guess I have a small studio with a few synths and sequencers.
Feels more like being in a mind-machine than a mancave.

Interzone / Re: Iconographic difficulty of nihilism
« on: September 18, 2013, 07:55:24 PM »
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
« on: September 15, 2013, 06:44:24 PM »
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.
