  1. Joseph Kony

    http://boingboing.net/2012/03/08/african-voices-respond-to-hype.html This is another interesting take on this situation. You know, since us Europpeans discovered Africa, we have pretty much been raping it. Took resources, occupied the land, enslaved people. Fucked that shit up, didn't give them a chance to be a country. In the colonial times (which went on until the last century) we also didn't really let them be proper nations. After WWII they started to gain independence BUT the (perhaps necessary) financial aids and political allegiances to USSR or USA so despite having the ideals of things like the Declaration of Human Rights, they really didn't get their chance to be a country either. And in this modern day, with this white saviour complex, we are also not recognizing them as nations with potential to solve their problems (because most countries had or have this and they slowly progress out of those situations, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Russia, Italy and other countries had brutal opressive and terror based regimes not long ago). So at least from my perspective, that whole caring attitude towards the third world is a load of shit. I believe that despite their political, military, health and econimic hells, African nations will one day overcome that, by themselves, without the hand of the white man up their anus. We have our crisis too, which we must attent to, and honestly, if you go to some sort of Kony awareness rally isntead of a rally that's pointing out and drawing attention to shitty situations in YOUR country you're not doing your part. You are contributing nothing to Uganda and their troubles, or your own.

    Well, this guy is obviously "a bad guy", but you need to watch out and get some more info on this movement, on Invisible People and Kony himself before you decide to support the cause or buy stuff from them. http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com/
  3. Whitney Houston is Dead

    I guess it's not "always" now is it? Hahaha, I'm sorry.
  4. James Cameron or Steven Spielberg

    I assume you understand it's in the works? They are both good directors, and have some great works under their belts..... But... They both need to chillax for a bit and quit trying to pump them out. They are starting a slip a little bit. COME ON, TITANIC 3D? NECESSARY? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Titanic 1D wasn't necessary in the first place. Every night in my dreams I pretend that film doesn't exist.
  5. General Music Chat?

    Nothing much to say, but I'm so excited for MASTODON that I must talk about it at all times. Been waiting for this show for 3 years, god damn shit is gonna be so epic. Fuck, it'll be brutal, progressive, beautiful all at once, God damn. Brann Dailor is probably the best drummer in the rock/metal/whatever spectre, Bill Kelliher and Brent Hinds are powerful riff gods, and Troy Sanders is also a fantastic bass player. Dunno if anyone here listens to them? Here's some tracks anyway: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6WGNd8QR-U And this next one is imo, one of the greatest "heavy" songs of all time, it's perfect and this is an amazing performance, this is a fucking band:
  6. Reunion.

    I can't really do any of that. At all. That's why I don't really get drunk. Since christmas.
  7. What are you listening to right now?

    Running Red - Kylesa.
  8. Controversial things that could be in GTA

    Female cops shouldn't be controversial. I mean, I'm sure that there are lady cops out there. it's not the 1950s. I guess people would freak at that though, which is weird, because equality isn't exclusive to only some things... And I'm not sure what masturbation would bring to the table in a GTA game. Would you want to watch CJ jerk off? OR perhaps shift through camera options for Niko Bellic pounding off? Not really. Rape could probably be inserted in the plot/story of the game, especially seeing how in both SA and IV you could have girlfriends (or quest givers of virtual sex), something like avenging a chick or some thing like that could happen. As for animals, well, you can kill virtual people so why not virtual animals really? I do not mean to offend anyone, and I do not condone shit like hunting as a sport/pleasure (even though I drink milk, eat eggs, and have a fairly carnivore diet) but I'm not sure why there shouldn't be animals, killable animals in GTA. I think that in those early stages of SA seeing some pitbulls next to drug dealers or gang bangers wouldn't really hurt to the realism and feel of what they were trying to portray.
  9. What are you listening to right now?

    That's probably true. Tool still seem like a band for like I dunno, shrooms or LSD. melody 8: Tera Melos. Noisy, experimental and sweet.

    I like Jerry's singing actually, like in the first parts of Would. It's good stuff. Oh well, that's fair what you say about the last record, I understand it, the thing still is pretty great. Of all the 90's revival, it was probably the best. Pearl Jam one sucked, but they sucked back then, Nirvana is for kids (but Kurt is dead anyway so, not much of a revival there), Jane's Addiction was pretty bad (which is weird since they put out such great records before), so Alice In Chains, DESPITE losing such a vital member still managed to make a good effort. So that's big props right there. Having seen Alice In Chains live, I do think that even the biggest Layne fan should go to the show. Great live band.

    Man I wanted to post here after I saw Battles last December. Dudes, FUCKIGN AMAZING BAND! They are somewhat of a super group, drummer was in Helmet (featured in San Andreas - Radio X) and one fo the guitarrists was in Don Caballero (legendary Math rock pioneer type of band). THey put on a great show, showing a lot of energy and technical prowess. If you want some happy music you can dance, but also think, these guys will be right up your alley. @Ivan: What's his solo stuff like? Btw, did you try out the last AiC record? I know a lot of people who can't get past Lainey, and I certanly won't say he's bad, because he was fucking great, but the last record was really good. They still have that darkness to them and the new singer is quite good. Most people dissing on the record are well.. close minded imo. Anyway, 2012 will probably be the best year in music for some time: New QoTSA album is very likely New Neurosis, Converge, High On Fire, Baroness (on the metulz side). Big Sir, The Mars Volta will also put out new stuff. Trent Reznor will probably drop a new How to Destroy Angels record or maybe even some NIN stuff. New Soundgarden. And there'll be this new super group, which has pretty much the most amazing line up: Brent Hinds from Mastodon, Ben Weinman from DEP, Eric Avery from Jane's Addiction and Jon Theodore former Mars Volta drummer. So basically, 2 of the best guitarrists today, one of the greatest bass players ever and an epic drummer. Yep, 2012 will be amazing for me. What are you lot expecting musically out of this year?
  12. New Year, New TGTAP
