It’s irrelevant in the sense that it's a minor event with little to no impact.

It's both. Are we surprised that schools indoctrinate? The proles need to be told what to think, what to listen to, and how to dress.

Ok. But in this case I think it’s not even the single event that matters but that it comes to reinforce a growing trend. To me it can either be accepted or condemned; the two don’t meet half way.

Right, but cheap sentimentality for the past is pretty much the conservative's analogue to this.

Liberal ‘progress’ is measured by how far they can run away from tradition or inversely how much they can get in its face (like a spoiled child really). Conservatives just observe and discuss whether something does or does not work. In this case it’s sex: better kept sacred or put on a platter for the clowns to have fun with? It’s not cheap sentimentality to question what produces the logically better result in people.

I'm defending nothing. Your assumption makes no sense, yet you refuse to question its reasoning. That's really one of the underlying points.

Is it not possible that a totally functional person might find fault in the world?
Society is flawed, people are flawed and the world is flawed. A healthy person acknowledges this and doesn't constantly dwell on it. Most activists (feminists in particular) tend to just be butthurt about one thing or another and use their cause to inflate themselves or transfer blame for their own shortcomings. Their thinking is pretty much dominated by confirmation bias and thus they see symptoms of their cause in everything around them.

I can’t relate to this. Conservatives follow a certain path to yield certain results and they base this on whether it works in the long run (call it tradition?). Liberalism might also seem to do this (it seems to do a lot of things), but then you have to question whether it would even exist without tradition to rebel against. With extremes aside, these are two completely contrasting forms of activism (if indeed that term could even apply to conservatism).


By this reasoning, love could develop out of a one night stand? I doubt it.

I don't follow you, are you questioning whether love can develop (in any one party) from a one night stand? Are we using some particular extended definition of love here? Because if not, this is common.

Love meaning a single-minded and lasting devotion between male and female. I imagine it’s pretty hard to achieve that or think of her as a great mans daughter when she willingly gives herself to a guy she hardly knows. Unfortunately this Brave New World type scenario is fast becoming the normal situation in the west and with dire consequences.

And what is this talk of "people" "person" etc. aquarius? Two rational entities experiencing mutual and equal attraction dubbed "true love"... turn your cynicism back on please. Traditionalism is well and good but dont let it turn into airy fairy bullshit. This issue would resolve itself if you have men that turn women on banging the shit out of them (with societal controls on promiscuity). You're right, its psychological, but it sure as hell isn't about finding love. It's about finding balls... the love is an aftereffect, the reward.

By this reasoning, love could develop out of a one night stand? I doubt it. There is no division between love and sex in a traditional view of the relationship. A guy either pursues sex (nightclubs, broads being passed around a football team) or actually dedicates himself to one worthwhile girl (death-stares anyone that looks at her). It’s really a matter of sacred versus profane, or perhaps I'm just a 'clean-freak'.

Do healthy people sit around whining about some irrelevant class that costs peanuts to run and teaches a practical skill?

It’s irrelevant and yet it teaches a practical skill?

At any rate, the point of such a 'class' isn’t really to teach anything but to further push the boundaries of accepted social norms (as though any form of change amounts to ‘progress’).

People here need to stop using their sparse knowledge of philosophy and politics as an excuse to project and ignore their own dysfunction. If you're unhappy: it's 100% your fault for not being able to cope with your environment.

On the whole there is just too much potential in computers for the masses to utilize them in any meaningful way. Email, facebook etc replace the skill and grace of letter writing. Then twitter replaced Email and facebook. i-maps replaced looking where you are going. Wikis replaced actually having a clue about anything.

I actually grow my own galangal (Indonesian ginger).

Hm, is the taste much different than more common gingers?

It has a very nice strong taste. You could say it is different but similar in the way that lemon is to lime.

Perhaps if these women were in real relationships, they wouldn't need a class for this.

So you're saying that if women knew how to achieve good orgasms then they wouldn't need to attend a class on how to achieve good organisms? You're such a fucking genius, dude. Sex is not so simple.

Really it is quite simple. If people actually love the person they are having sex with then there will be no division of flesh and spirit. It's a matter of either finding one worthwhile person to dedicate yourself or diluting your capacity for love by only thinking of physical pleasure.

So you can have sex for hours with multiple orgasms?

That's not really the point I was getting at. Besides, inability to achieve orgasm is thought to be largely psychological in origin which ties in well with the widespread disintegration of tradition relationships. I think this issue would naturally resolve in people that find true love.

19.01.2013

We have finished all vocals and choirs for the new album. This means that we slowly come to an end now. Until the end of the month we have to finalize the sound, the booklet and the two bonus songs. This time we also have an English speaker who contributed with some spoken words for two songs. At the end of this month give the master CD to napalm records and fix the release-date which probably will be in march or April.

...casually dons battle armour and prepares for march or April

It has been found that foods with a high alkaline content including ginger, lemon and certain herbal teas can only be good for the body. It's also good if your mind likes what is good for the body!

Audiofile will bring traffic from outside, but I think most regular posters here already have the classic stuff or are only looking to download new or overlooked stuff to preview before buying. Still I think it is worthwhile having the core top 50 or 100 all time best works available for those finding their way.

In case anyone didn't already know, nazi.org.uk actually hosts some top notch classical rarities directly on their site. But it's probably out of the question that the top 10 metal albums could be hosted directly from this site.

To me conversation and exchange of ideas is what makes the place. In that respect, enough people drop out of the conversation and the rest follow suit. I think continual interaction is required to keep up momentum. Of course time is limited for most people but when momentum drops off it doesn't help either.

It is usually more important that I understand what is being read, so I read slowly and carefully. It might even need to be read over again. Poetry (including some heavy metal lyrics) I try to memorize and decode their essence, even rewording them if needs be.
