"The Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford and the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana (BAV) said on Thursday they intended to digitize 1.5 million pages of ancient texts and make them freely available online."

This is very exciting news! I can't wait to see when or how they'll be available; I've got a LOT of reading to do.

http://www.blackeconomicdevelopment.com/13-year-old-jada-williams-persecuted-over-her-essay-on-frederick-douglass/

Quote
  Jada Williams, a 13-year old student in Rochester, New York, wrote an essay comparing and contrasting her school experience in 2012 to the educational challenges described in “The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass“.
____________________________________

Miss Williams personalized this to her own situation.  She reflected on how the “white teachers” do not have enough control of the classroom to successfully teach the minority students in Rochester.  While she herself is more literate than most, due to her own perseverance and diligence, she sees the fact that so many of the other “so-called ‘unteachable’” students aren’t learning to read as a form of modern-day slavery.  Their illiteracy holds them back in society.

Remarkable how this young person has really struck a chord of truth here. She's reasonably bright for her age, so what do they do? Throw her in a school for "troublemakers". Guess her intelligence was too much of a threat to everyone's feelings.

Metal / Wulfgravf
« on: November 29, 2011, 02:34:33 AM »
Apologies before I get into this post - I can't find the "ANUS members' own musical projects" thread. (mods feel free to move this post if you feel it necessary)

Myself, Conquest, and others who have been or are members of this forum are currently involved in a black metal band called Wulfgravf. The band initially was active in the early 2000s but has recently been resurrected. I'm the newbie member as I haven't contributed to any recordings as of yet. A split release with Nuklearenpest and Thestral was put out a little while ago.

Information can be found here - http://www.anus.com/metal/hall/index.php/topic,13980.0.html

FYI - the tape that was released has some issues with the mix which renders the quality very poor. I would advise those who wish to listen to this release to contact myself or Conquest in order to receive a download link or a physical copy of the tape. We will be able to provide the material with a superior sound quality. The label only has a limited number and a good portion of them have the erroneous mix.

I'd also like to personally endorse Thestral as producing fantastic material which is very much worth a listen. Again, any further information needed can be obtained by messaging myself or Conquest. Cheers.

Interzone / "Lost Boys" - men who do not grow up
« on: July 04, 2011, 10:57:50 PM »
"Jeff" has managed to get through junior college, but he just can't figure out what to do next.

"My parents have been fed up with me for two years," he tells clinical psychologist Perry Adler. "It's like I'm caught in a thick fog. I was always told as a child I had a lot of potential ...

"Nowadays I usually wake up at noon. I spend most of my days on the Internet and my nights hanging with friends," Jeff says. "I see some of them moving on and I feel like a loser. I want to do something with my life but I don't know what. I try to do stuff, but I lose the energy - I can't get things started."

Looks like to me that these fellows are confused. They see all these idiotic movies that rely on crude humor, are told by cunty feminists that boys are evil, and that everyone is the same. Perhaps I'm jumping the gun, but it looks like men and women are switching places in the gender role world.

Bottom line though, this is yet another gold covered shit nugget in the toilet bowl of modernity.

Metal / New AMEBIX video

"Knights Of The Black Sun"

Seems they're fusing their old sound with some new elements that remind me of Swans' most recent effort. I enjoyed this, but time will tell if it holds up.

Factories making sought-after Apple iPads and iPhones in China are forcing staff to sign pledges not to commit suicide, an investigation has revealed.

At least 14 workers at Foxconn factories in China have killed themselves in the last 16 months as a result of horrendous working conditions.

Slave labor is hip!

Quote
An investigation of the 500,000 workers by the Centre for Research on Multinational Companies and Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour (Sacom) found appalling conditions in the factories.

They claimed that:

    Excessive overtime was rife, despite a legal limit of 36 hours a month. One payslip showed a worker did 98 hours of overtime in one month, the Observer reported.

    During peak periods of demand for the iPad, workers were made to take only one day off in 13.

    Badly performing workers were humiliated in front of colleagues.

    Workers are banned from talking and are made to stand up for their 12-hour shifts.

Guaranteed most Americans would react in this manner - "OMG THATS HORRIBLE"....(next day) "Hey guise wanna go to the mall? I heard the iSodomy is coming out today!"

Metal / EXTREME NOISE TERROR vocalist Phil Vane found dead
« on: February 23, 2011, 05:59:33 PM »
Uncertain as to the cause of death yet, but:

Quote
Extreme Noise Terror vocalist Phil Vane was found dead yesterday by friends. No cause of death has yet been reported. Vane was 46.

ENT were an early UK grindcore/D-beat/pun​k-metal band, peers of Napalm Death who shared members in the early years and then again in the late 1990s. Napalm's then-drummer, Mick Harris, played with ENT on an early session for John Peel's BBC radio show, which can be heard on the awesome 2009 3CD set Grind Madness at the BBC. Years later, current Napalm vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway quit the band, dissatisfied with its direction; Vane took his place, whereupon Greenway joined ENT and sang on their album Damage 381. The two returned to their original positions a year later, with Vane's vocals for the album Inside the Torn Apart scrapped and replaced by Greenway's.

ENT kept going for years, with Vane the last original member. The band's most recent full-length release was 2008's Law of Retaliation, but like many punk/hardcore/grind bands, their discography was jammed with singles, split EPs, compilation tracks, etc., etc. Ultimately, their reputation rests on their early work, particularly the aforementioned Peel sessions, their 1989 debut CD A Holocaust In Your Head and 1992's Phonophobia EP.


A damned shame. Too young to go yet. Why can't some random nu-metal musician drop dead instead of valid artists?

Audiofile / Rorschach

Rorschach: Rapidshare, Blogspot, Megaupload

Rorschach

Described by some as "powerviolence", Rorschach unwittingly laid the foundation for metalcore with a highly dissonant, chaotic, and jarring hybrid of hardcore punk, grindcore, and sludge with scattered influences of "no-wave" and noise rock.

Rorschach - Protestant (1993, 4shared)

Rorschach - Autopsy (1995, Mediafire)

Metal / Torture Division
« on: November 10, 2010, 06:19:10 PM »
In my search for quality metal, I stumbled upon this band several days ago.

I find them similar to Winterwolf, in that they're a bunch of old school dudes making old school metal. Their material is heavily influenced by the old Swedish DM scene, but there's a bit of American DM in the riffcraft and percussion as well. Features the singer from the first two Grave albums. My consensus so far is - enjoyable enough for repeated listens, but nothing legendary.

One thing I do appreciate is that the band have made nearly every song they've ever made downloadable free of charge from their website. No reason to spend the money if you don't like the material.

Metal / Guitar tone in metal
« on: October 31, 2010, 04:15:23 PM »
Lately, I've been noticing more and more the aesthetic quality of a well done guitar tone in the context of a great metal album. In very rare cases (like Dead Infection's first album), the guitar tone actually makes me dislike the album. I particularly enjoy some degree of fuzz or crunch when I listen to metal. The glossy overproduced sweep-happy sound can take a long walk off a short cliff.

If forced to choose, I think "Age Of Quarrel", "The Rack", "Harmony Corruption", "Nightmare or Reality", and "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss" have my favorite guitar tones. (I know two of these are hardcore punk albums but I figure it's related)

ANUSians, what are your thoughts/favorites?

Interzone / Conservatism: it may not exist
« on: July 09, 2010, 12:34:05 PM »
Concerning lolmetal's assertion that conservatives have been against metal due to events in American in the 1980s, I have this to say.

First of all, the people labeled "conservatives" in this case are not only about the worst possible representation of that label, they don't stand for all conservatives.

Secondly, liberals and conservatives in modern American politics (Democrat/Republican) are so far removed from the original meaning of their stances its not even funny. Shame on you, I would've thought someone such as yourself would be able to recognize this. This is among the most common fallacies concerning American politics. Republicans are pussified humanists and are basically Democrats with more fag-hating and Christ loving.

You try asking metal bands their political/social views. I can guarantee a good amount of them will be conservatives. I've met plenty of fans and a few musicians who attest to that.

Interzone / Vivid dream/doomsday scenario
« on: June 12, 2010, 05:25:53 PM »
I'm not sure if this is the proper place to put this, but I found this interesting so why not. Maybe you guys will too.

Last night I went to sleep and had an extremely vivid dream; so vivid I might as well have been watching it on TV. It made me reflect quite a bit.

The dream began with me living my life as I usually do. I had just got back from the gym when I noticed my family was watching the news upstairs. I joined them to find out that scientists had found a potentially hazardous forthcoming event. It involved the sun. I'm not entirely sure as to what they called it (I think it was a meta-flare) but it basically entailed the sun dispelling large chunks of molten rock into space. The problem would be one hitting Earth, as these chunks were the size of Alaska, easily.

Fast forward a week; life as usual continues for me, going to class, the gym, cooking, doing every day activities, when I come home and again see my whole family watching the news. This time, scientists have proposed a solution to this problem. They were going to blow up the sun. Naturally, there was some negative reactions from certain groups of people, and through the course of the next several dream weeks, there was rioting, a huge increase in crime, massive protests, and the like. But the worlds' governments pooled money to build a gigantic nuclear warhead. It was so large, it dwarfed the largest ones we have today.

Anyway, the launch of this nuke occurred the next week. It was broadcast worldwide on TV, and police at the launch site (which as I remember was in the middle of the deserts of Africa; where of course nothing IMPORTANT lives) had their hands full holding back protesters of every kinds. The nuke launched, but not before burning a substantial hole in the Earth because of its exhaust. I remember that everyone near the launch site was killed or wounded. The nuke flew towards the sun, and crashed. The sun exploded in a fiery burst that blinded those who looked at it. The only thing I remember after this sort of heat/light apocalypse is being separated from my family. As I looked around for them in great distress, the only thing people seemed to be concerned with is why their cell phones had crappy service, and blogging about it on Failbook and other social networking sites.

Ironically, I woke up from the dream when a friend called my cell phone. The whole experience left me shaken up a bit. Unfortunately, the whole thing didn't seem unfeasible.

Interzone / Anti-Christian sentiments of American founding fathers
« on: May 08, 2010, 02:38:52 AM »
Greetings all. I happened upon a discussion on facebook (shitty site, I know) which contained some interesting quotations supposedly uttered by some of the pivotal creators of the USA. Here is the text in its entirety.

""america is a christian nation. you can just go to our founding fathers' documents" - sarah palin


hm. if i was as dumb as a typical fox news watcher i might believe that. but lets see what those founding fathers said.


"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise"

"The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries."
- james madison

hm. maybe he's the minority. lets keep looking.

"As I understand the Christian religion, it was, and is, a revelation. But how has it happened that millions of fables, tales, legends, have been blended with both Jewish and Christian revelation that have made them the most bloody religion that ever existed?"

"God is an essence that we know nothing of. Until this awful blasphemy is got rid of, there will never be any liberal science in the world."

"This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it."
- John Adams


surely something's wrong here. lets keep looking.

"Religious controversies are always productive of more acrimony and irreconcilable hatreds than those which spring from any other cause. Of all the animosities which have existed among mankind, those which are caused by the difference of sentiments in religion appear to be the most inveterate and distressing, and ought most to be depreciated. I was in hopes that the enlightened and liberal policy, which has marked the present age, would at least have reconciled Christians of every denomination so far that we should never again see the religious disputes carried to such a pitch as to endanger the peace of society."
-george washington

"Lighthouses are more helpful than churches."

"The way to see by faith is to shut the eye of reason."
- Ben franklin

can't get more clearer than thomas jefferson.

"On the dogmas of religion, as distinguished from moral principles, all mankind, from the beginning of the world to this day, have been quarreling, fighting, burning and torturing one another, for abstractions unintelligible to themselves and to all others, and absolutely beyond the comprehension of the human mind."

"It is not to be understood that I am with him (Jesus Christ) in all his doctrines. I am a Materialist; he takes the side of Spiritualism, he preaches the efficacy of repentance toward forgiveness of sin; I require a counterpoise of good works to redeem it."

"I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature."

"Christianity neither is, nor ever was, a part of the Common Law."
- Thomas Jefferson


"Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst."

"I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church. Each of those churches accuse the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all."
- Tomas Paine"

What are everyone's thoughts? Are any of these real? I know for a fact Washington and Hamilton didn't go to church regularly (if at all) but I've never heard of most of these quotations. If they are true, then it's certainly a kick in the nuts of the religious "right" Republican party (when in reality they're as moronic as the Democrats). Any feedback is much appreciated.
