Too transparent...

How about this?

Everyone wants their daughter to be a prostitute, have some dude cum on her face, maybe penetrate her anus, or call some friends so everyone gets a turn.

People are dumbshits. They don't want a whore for a daughter but also don't see a problem with her attending the 'get better orgasms class'. It just doesn't add up.

Metal / Re: Best metal releases of 2013 thus far?

I'm looking forward to the new Summoning and am curious about that Burzum synth album.

At any rate, it takes me a while to really get around to hearing new stuff unless I'm already fanatical about that band.

But as always I'm keeping my eyes peeled for long overdue albums by Gorguts, Kraftwerk, Beherit, Demoncy and anyone else that never dropped the ball.

Interzone / Re: Is metal populist?

Metal peaked in the early 90s. Up until that time there were not many rubbish bands. Assimilation into populist culture occurred later on but it certainly didn't start out that way.

Sometimes I try to think things out with logic, other times I go with my gut feeling. Using the two together without relying on either helps develop natural intuition. This is a true form of strength.

strongly disagree with what you said about the latter half of the album as I feel that is where Shields really distinguishes himself.

I might be wrong about the second half and your're certainly not the first person I've come across who thinks this. Actually I can't say it's bad, just a bit noisier and bouncier than one might predict, more beat-centric. I guess the two halves make sense when viewed in context of the intended vinyl release.

Metal / Re: New Burzum Album

«Sôl austan, Mâni vestan» will feature ≈58 minutes of instrumental electronic music, that can best be described as relaxing, slow-paced, contemplative and very much original. You have not heard anything like this before, although we can compare it to other electronic music, such as Tangerine Dream – and I guess to old electronic Burzum music as well.

This actually sounds like a good idea. Pieces such as Leere and Rundgang um die tranzendentale Säule der Singularität are among some of the all time best ambient synth works ever produced.

Also, don't forget that Osmose will release a long lost Ildjarn demo this year. It may be the last piece of TRUE NORWEGIAN BLACK METAL ever released!

With the advent of easy-fix antibiotics and the inevitable misuse/overuse by the common man we now have highly infectious superbug-laden office jobs. It's probably safer joining the army. And no, I can't prove any of this.

Interzone / Re: "Mature" modern society giggles when poop is mentioned
« on: February 17, 2013, 11:56:38 PM »
The few non-western countries I've visited displayed a culture that is in complete opposition to anything crass or distasteful. Whereas in the west people look at you like a square for not laughing at poop jokes, the rest of the world (including the pre-modern west) look at you as a subhuman if you do.

Metal / Re: Darkthrone's Decay Continues

I actually thought the new album was called Decay Continues for a moment.


At any rate, I don't think any of the Norwegian bands have the capacity to create great works anymore. The brain circuitry is just too far gone. Even so I think fans would instantly pay more attention if Darkthrone made Transylvanian Hunger Part II, not that it would necessarily be any good.

Metal / My Bloody Valentine - MBV
« on: February 17, 2013, 02:25:43 AM »
I’ve been listening to this intently for the past week and can honestly say it’s the best album I’ve heard this year and probably the best non-metal album in the last decade. At the very least it’s well worth a listen if you were even remotely a fan of Loveless.

Initial impressions:

It’s an aesthetic continuation from Loveless. A bit cleaner, more spacious but still very raw analogue sounding production.

Song structures are like expanded, drawn out versions of those found on Loveless

Less pop structure. More of a conscious approach to ambient music (in a style vaguely reminiscent of the other great shoegaze band, Slowdive).

Taken as a whole the album isn’t quite as powerful as Loveless, but certain songs are in fact superior.

They still have the wonderful celtic/gaelic melodic idiom.

Ambient hallucinogenic approach to drumming forms the support structure for multiple layers of guitars, synth and noise.

The latter half of the album loses strength by excessive experimentation. It would have been cool to conclude the journey with an epic piece that recaps the first half of the album.

"Chill out, dude, it's just ___" is the statement of a man without spirit.

Really?  I frequently say things like "Chill out, dude, it's just the way the world is", in the sense that people get far too absorbed in transitory things (broken down car, broken down relationship, broken down there, whatever).  When people chill out, they're better able to appreciate the beauty of the supposedly "bad" event that has just occurred, being able to see things with a broader perspective.

For most people the broken down relationship would appear to be of equal or lesser value than the broken down car. “Just replace it, they’re a dime a dozen anyway”. The point I would make is that these things are transient, a cheap car or a cheap relationship aren’t made to last. The alternative is to have something of a higher quality. Something that doesn’t break down. And that if it does, then it really does matter.

In fact, the insane weirdos are those who frequent the health-food store and call omnivores 'nazis'.
They are all incredibly unhealthy specimens, with grey-green skin and warped minds.
Those are probably the liberal "we want to end all suffering" types.

Eliminating suffering is not my aim. If a hunter captures some deer out in the wilderness, then congrats to him. That's the cycle of life. But, artificially raising animals on some factory/farm in order to be turned into small packages of meat to be shipped in plastic to feed some random human is the height of hubris. It's not good for our souls.

And besides, I find animals to be superior to most humans anyway....

I can see your point. Most people could not bear to see the animal suffer, but won't deny themselves a taste that they desire. To me this is a lost person. The simple life of an animal is incapable of sin. It just wants to sit in the sun and eat grass but it dies so that the obese truck driver can grab a quick hotdog on the way to his next delivery.

As far as health concerns go there are probably an equal amount of positive and negative arguments on either side of the fence. But ultimately it comes down to personal choice. A vegan or vegetarian will see it their way, a meat-eater the other way. There are a million variations in between and a million examples to prove what's better or worse.

In saying that, the ISKON or Hari Krishna movement has fallen from grace in a big way and should not be taken as the foremost example of healthy vegetarianism. Though it began with humble intentions, leftists soon got their hooks into it and turned it into a crusade against the very people it had intended to help.
