ohh yeah i remember reading before that you and ChildrenofSodom went to high school with them. i'm not the biggest metalcore fan either but they are really good at what they do especially for their age. i'll write a report but to be honest i just started listening to them about 2 weeks ago lol so i'm not that familiar with their material but i'll try to get a setlist.

Isn't it fun when you Google a word or phrase, and one of the hits you get back is something you posted on the web?

I just did a search for "James O'Brien Yeti Special" (it's a long story - don't ask :D), and the third search result that popped up was a post I made in the "Now Playing" thread on here for one of the songs on the new Julie Christmas solo album. The last few words of the search result description (just before it gets truncated with the periods of ellipsis) is the quote "Thank the fuck Christ." That made me laugh.

(Oh, and before you go thinking how vain I am for laughing at a joke I myself made - it just ain't so. The quote is actually from Billy Bob Thornton in "Bad Santa", and the reason I laugh when I hear or think of that quote is that it makes me think of how funny the movie is - especially Thornton's character.)

This one guy(who is a complete dick know it all) posted The Crying Game as one of his favorite films. I haven't seen The Crying Game, but I know the twist so I said "Haven't seen it, but I know the twist and I think it's funny as hell because of a skit on Robot Chicken". He proceeds to call me an insenstive dick and I did understand the beauty of the twist( For those who don't know it's a love story and at some point the film a man finds out the "woman" he is in love has a penis.)

Half way through the tracks on Intronaut's myspace page. Sounds like it'll take multiple listens for me to get into. I think I've checked out Baroness before and didn't like the vocals but I'll give them another chance. Never heard of Tesseract or Karnivool but I'll be sure to check their material out as well.

Intronaut will take a few, idk what you heard but the vocals are very different from the EP's (First, Second, A Grey Sigh In A Flower Husk) to the LP's (Red & Blue Album).

The Tony...do you often change lanes suddenly in heavy traffic without signaling as well? :lol:

What Tony is trying to say, I think, is that the IntrOnaut will indeed take a while to get into (which I would tend to agree). Then, on the subject of Baroness, the vocals on the EP's are a bit different from those on the Red Album and Blue Record. I'm assuming he means that the older material has somewhat harsher vocals, which I would agree with for the most part.

For my part, if you like Mastodon a great deal, I would highly recommend a band called Burst from Sweden. They were signed to Relapse before they hung it up for good (supposedly) last year. I often refer to them as "Sweden's answer to Mastodon". They are progressive, but heavy - like Mastodon. They are extremely talented musicians - like Mastodon. Their song structures are very intricate - but yet smooth - and they often use odd time signatures and such, like Mastodon. Their most recent album, "Lazarus Bird" is an absolute masterpiece. Going backwards from there, 2006's "Origo" is outstanding, and 2003's "Prey on Life" is excellent as well. Check them out - they are incredible.

i think i realized why i don't call myself a metalhead as much anymore and don't really listen to extreme metal anymore (except for the bands i already do), the fans of it turn me off.

i have a friend that listens to a lot of extreme metal. today he posts Slipknot lyrics as a facebook post. and all his friends that look like "tr00" metalheads got pissed saying stuff like wtf are you listening to that's not true metal, with one even saying you are no longer allowed to listen to Blind Guardian and Bathory if you listen to shit like Slipknot. so i reply saying so i guess i'm horrible too for being open minded and listening to both Slipknot and Blind Guardian? and his friend replies with there's a diff between being open minded and fucking retarded. so i reply by saying so listening to Slipknot makes one retarded? he never replies so i go to his profile and of course he's like 17 and listens to strictly black and death metal.

similar stories a few months ago when he started posting Whitechapel and Suicide Silence lyrics on facebook posts and people were replying saying the same thing saying he's turning into a deathcore loving fag, since he used to hate both bands but he's been very open minded lately instead of just listening to "tr00" extreme bands all the time.

so i think that's what's been turning me off the whole label metalhead because of close minded idiots like that who stick to a few "tr00" genres of metal and give people shit if they like bands they think aren't "tr00." i see it all over the internet too. people always putting people down for listening to bands that are too core-ish or whatever and it's pretty lame. makes me laugh actually how some people react.

I dealt with people like that too. I hate on death metal alot, I'm trying to stop doing that so much because it can get annoying to death metal fans and it can make sound like a prick when I talk shit about death metal all the time.
One of my facebook friends is a huge fan of death metal and he posts death metal lyrics and songs alot, and I say how I hate death metal because alot of the screaming and growling is just awful, there are only a few death metal bands that I listen to. That friend is fine when I hate on death metal. It's his other friends that say fuck you, if you hate screaming and growling then go listen to your christain metalcore bull shit, you're not a true metal fan ect.

I've been labeled close minded by some dumbasses just for liking metal. Then I bring up how I listen to much more different styles of music then they do and they say "yeah but you listen to growling screamo stuff" at that point I dont even bring up how I barely listen to any bands with growling because i would have an easier time trying to explain it to a brick wall. :tp:

i cut out some metalheads in my life within the past year because of this. i actually started listening to metal/deathcore AFTER i got into extreme metal, so they thought i was turning into a poser for liking that type of metal. it seemed like their lives revolved around telling people what's tr00 and what's not. losers.

The fact that you guys thought of the same topic as I did just further points to the extent to which "metalheads" are devoted to metal. I mean, my essay kinda stressed the fact that, to me, metal is more than just music, it's a way of life. Of course I exaggerated a bit there, but not that much.

I cause there's a positive side to all this mess: now I can afford to commit sexual offenses. Yah know how you can't live within a certain radius of a school or Chuckie Cheese if you're a sex offender?

A. :(
B. It really, really depends on the patches. If you like a lot of stuff that fits in a variety of 'metal' genres and the patches you have reflect that, it's doubtful you'd find someone with the exact same taste as you. Say, if you had exclusively crust bands, you'd have a much better shot than some thrash, punk, doom etc.
Also keep in mind the limitation of said patched. I've got a few that are limited to 100 or less copies, that has a niche market and would be much wiser, even if you remove those specific ones to sell individually on ebay.
The material also counts. If they are embroidered you will have a good shot at selling them individually. Cloth, doubtful. Those things are really worth not more than $2.00 new and used I can't imagine selling them anywhere other than a garage sale.

Oh, and buying a vest with some other guys patches is very lame.

One more thing- black denim is harder to come by than blue. I'm not really sure about other colors, but I know since I got my black denim jacket a few years ago for like $15 it's gotten a bit more expensive.

DethMaiden
12-06-2010, 07:30 PM
Yeah, I'm gonna take 'em off and sell 'em piece by piece. They're almost all embroidered and should fetch decent amounts. I'll probably put 'em in lots by genre.

I'm going to buy another impractical piece of patch-based clothing though, the plan is to get a green Army-issue jacket and sew patches of all the flags of countries I've been to on the back and use one o' them fancy sewing machines that can sew numbers and letters to put the year I first visited them all as captions on the patches.

So it'll look like

USA 1990
Canada 2008
Germany 2008
Austria 2008
Czech Republic 2008
United Kingdom 2011
Ireland 2011
Spain 2011
Hungary 2011
China 2012

if all my plans go through.

My biggest beef with rap and hip-hop is that its more poetry than "music". I come from a musical background, playing the cello and then the guitar. I usually judge bands or groups by their musical prowess and song structure. Metal is so great because its got some of the most talented musicians and beautiful song structures in any genre of music I can think of, save classical composers.

I just find myself bored halfway through rap songs because I feel the music is repeating itself, and unoriginal. I do appreciate lyrically what they do; I think its great. Better than fuckin' modern rock, with like 3 chords and shitty singing. The musicality AND lyrics suck behind all that. And rap is kind of like a chill-out style, not giving me that adrenaline rush that a great metal riff gives. Meh.

I suppose if there are white people who are REALLY good friends with black people then they could get away with it.

Actually, I think black people are the real racists, against white people that is. They can have BET(Black Entertainment Television) and anything else with blacks ONLY, but if a white person does that, they're called racists. There are other examples of black racism, but I can't think of them.

I hear you. I was a purist for a long time about respecting only music which was made by live human hands playing physical instruments. I loathed keyboards/synthesizers in the 80s, and couldn't stand drum machines for ages. So music built on samples and electronic beats wasn't an easy sell.

But there IS a lot of artistry to producing a good hip hop track -- creating the beats, composing instrumentation and/or curating samples and using them effectively, etc. There's a lot of history behind it, going back to Grandmaster Flash's invention of the remix, and all the old DJ techniques from the foundational days of hiphop. It is a form of musicianship, albeit a different form than bowing a cello.

And there are hip hop artists who play live instruments, and play them well -- most notably The Roots (which is one reason why they have consistently been one of my favorite hip hop acts).

Not to mention, of course, the lyrics, which have been the most inventive and poignant of any popular genre over the last 30 years.

(a) If this were true, I would not have a problem with it. We don't live in a culture in which black people are privileged and considered "normal," while white people are excluded and considered "other." We DO live in a culture in which white people are privileged and considered normal, while black people are excluded and considered other. So there is no equivalence when we judge our popular culture. Shows full of black people with no white characters are NOT necessarily racist, while shows full of white people with no black characters ARE most likely racist.

Woah, I think everyone's overreacting a bit. Being white, and having black friends, I understand what fonz is trying to say. Many times my bros try and crack a racist joke against themselves (a la, "Lost your wallet? I probably stole it" or "I don't work between school, I deal drugs!). It's really not that funny, because they're playing into this stereotype that brings them down. I can't say something like, "I'm white and affluent and can afford my classes instead of my mommy getting welfare!" to them. They take that as personal offense, which is very understandable given the cultural context.

fonz does have a point, though. Most modern "white" shows/sitcoms always have another ethnicity thrown in, whether it be black, hispanic, asian, etc. (Modern Family, The Office, any CSI... true; many main characters are white, but so is most of America). There are (to my knowledge) not as big a mix of ethnicities on black shows/movies nowadays. Just look at Tyler Perry's stuff...

...but Tyler Perry's stuff is a celebration of their unique culture. Personally, being white, young, and not exposed to much true racism in my life, it seems counterintuitive to be held to a standard like this. fonz's point that there is counter-racism nowadays (i.e., blacks agianst whites) is a valid point (or invalid) based on your definition of racism. I had to sit through a class of this, trust me. But are those shows meant to be racist? No. They are just able to get away with stuff an all-white show would be subjugated to due to skin color, and our cultural association with it.

In the end, fonz is quite blunt, and maybe too assuming in his views. But I would be lying if I said I hadn't felt what he's getting at while watching TV every once in a while. Is it a big deal? No. Let black people have their shows; its when they perpetuate stereotypes that annoys me. The reactions you guys are giving him is like fonz said, "I hate blacks because they're inferior", which isn't what he was implying. Debate: continue!

OMG! jd091 said he hates blacks because they're inferior! :eek:


Ahem. Sorry about that. :eyes:


However, in all seriousness -- I know you mean well, but counterpoints need to be made.

(1) Any time a white person enters a discussion about race by mentioning his/her "black friends," red flags go up. It's actually kind of a cliche of clueless racist white people. Just google the phrase "I have black friends" and you'll see what I mean.

(2) It's not really a white dude's place to criticize the way his black friends "perpetuate stereotypes." Black people are smart enough to figure out the context and significance of their statements and behaviors without white people pointing them out. If your black friends are making jokes that seem to you to be counter-intuitive, they are most likely doing so ironically to make fun of racism, not of black people.

(3) This statement -- "Most modern "white" shows/sitcoms always have another ethnicity thrown in, whether it be black, hispanic, asian, etc." -- is rife with problems. For one thing, it groups together all nonwhite people as equal and interchangeable, as if black people should be satisfied when there's an Asian character, and so on. For another thing, there's the phrase "thrown in," as if the natural order would be for these shows' casts to be exclusively white, but someone haphazardly added a minority to the mix to meet some artificial PC quota.

Do you see why putting it that way is a problem?

TV shows shouldn't be segregated any more than society should be segregated. If the only way to have minority characters on TV is for them to be "thrown in," then television really is racist. Television should be inclusive of all races, genders, religions, sexual orientations, etc.

On the other hand, a predominantly African-American television show is not racist if it excludes white characters -- because there's no shortage of white folks on television. White people have always been the favored, privileged group in American popular media, and that has not changed. (As you've pointed out, even when there are minority characters on network TV, the LEAD characters are virtually ALWAYS white.) So there's no need for "black" shows to explicitly include white people. But the same is not true in reverse -- which is why several metalsetlists contributors have taken Fonz's recent statements amiss.

Thank you for listening. :)

Alright, glad to wake up and find this thread waiting for me. Here I go:

BET (Black Entertainment Television) was created to show black television shows and black music videos because other TV stations, such as MTV, refused to play black artists. BET was not created to glorify black artists OVER white artists. Every other station had an implicit no-blacks policy, so BET was founded to put black people on TV. I can understand why someone would think it is racist today, but back in the day it had its purpose.

And this "black people do this thing, but white people cant, how come?" attitude is really childish and annoying. So what if black people can have a TV that exclusively shows the black experience, like a Tyler Perry or Spike Lee movie? How many black people today or in the past can really relate to Friends or whatever other white-dominated sitcom? I think its stupid to say that black people aren't allowed to have show for themselves, when white people have pretty much had the entire society and entertainment industry to themselves since their advent.

So, in conclusion, we've been raised to believe that everyone is equal, no one should be treated better or worse than anyone else based on their skin color....so when Fonz sees an inequality, he thinks that inequality was created out of thin air to benefit black people. You can't ignore history, my friends.

I don't have it off the top of my head, but I thought that was pretty common knowledge. But let's compare Michael Jackson to Public Enemy...

EDIT - Yeah, I can't remember where I read it. Sorry.

Actually, at first they did. They refused him on the basis they didn't want to cater to "fringe groups." It was only when CBS threatened to pull ALL their videos if MTV didn't play "Billie Jean" that Michael Jackson and other black artists started to get regular airplay.

Anyone who has a problem with BET is free to start their own network and show what they want. Someone with money wanted to start BET, its a free goddamn country, so who gives a shit?

Yeah, seriously. Nobody should care. I think criticism comes into view with some people because "White Entertainment Television" would never fly (and no without reason). Although, a "Jewish Entertainment Television" would probably work, and they're mostly white, too!

On the other hand, a predominantly African-American television show is not racist if it excludes white characters -- because there's no shortage of white folks on television. White people have always been the favored, privileged group in American popular media, and that has not changed. (As you've pointed out, even when there are minority characters on network TV, the LEAD characters are virtually ALWAYS white.) So there's no need for "black" shows to explicitly include white people. But the same is not true in reverse -- which is why several metalsetlists contributors have taken Fonz's recent statements amiss.

Thank you for listening. :)

Exactly, just look at TV commercials you find more minorities in fast food, junk food, debt consolidation, financial assistance, etc. When Minorities are featured in department store commercials they are almost always the workers and White people are almost always the shoppers. Most commercials about banks, restaurants, cars, electronics, medical, stocks, financial savings, lawyers, etc feature predominantly White people. When a minority is featured in a car commercial they're normally shown as a worker of some type. If you want to test it just pay attention to commercials for a few days. I did the study for a Sociology project last year and it was rather interesting.

I'm late here, but yeah, I too see where Fonz's coming from. He just needs a better way of articulating his opinion. Calling "counter-racism" racism is not the best way to do that :lol:

I mean, goddamn, dude. After all these years you'd think they have the right to make their own television station that's just for them. Honestly, I just think you need to find another example that's not as retarded as this one. Even if we don't agree with your perspective (and likely never will), I'm sure there's more compelling arguments out there that you could use.

But there IS a lot of artistry to producing a good hip hop track -- creating the beats, composing instrumentation and/or curating samples and using them effectively, etc. There's a lot of history behind it, going back to Grandmaster Flash's invention of the remix, and all the old DJ techniques from the foundational days of hiphop. It is a form of musicianship, albeit a different form than bowing a cello.

Not to mention, of course, the lyrics, which have been the most inventive and poignant of any popular genre over the last 30 years.

:fist:

You are what me and my friends like to call a "Certified Hip hop head". Here are some great hip hop tunes with beats that use sampling and loops beautifully to PERFECTION.....

"Above the Cloud"......EPIC Loop......RIP Guru..

"Dedicated".......I love the sampling in this song. That Bass in the very beginning is so soul full. Beautiful Beat and lyrics....Very powerful song.....Even though you say there is plenty of good hip hop today it still won't change the fact that the best years in hip hop where ultimately the 90s(HENCE why people call the 90s the golden age of hip hop)

My cousin drew my name to get me a christmas gift this year, and I was really thinking either a hat or a new jacket/hoodie. But I want it either to be a band, or videogame releated. Not "HAHA OMG 1UP VIDEOGAME CULTURE xD" but about a specific game. I wanted to get a Mass Effect "N7" hat but it's out of stock. :(

Any ideas? (AKA Hey Div I bet you know some good places for this stuff!)

What does everyone think about wikileaks and their founder Julian Assange being arrested on rape charges? I don't know if he did the crime or not. Either he did do the crime or the government is arresting him because they do not like what is being released. Those are my thoughts. ChildrenOfSodom you're into politics, any thoughts?

1) If he raped someone, he should go to prison. No question about it. Let's not make a conspiracy where there isn't one.
2) Wikileaks should be shut down anyway. It's a disgrace to journalism. You do NOT publish materials that threaten national security in a clear and present way. 'Nuff said. Wikileaks risks good journalists across the country having less leash from the courts by doing some of the stupid shit they do.
