I think System of a Down are awesome and some of their lyrics are quite profound in places, but I can't get behind the message of their song "Science." I"m a committed naturalist, so the song's...

An apt, if barbed, critique. Most seem to be depressed nihilists that can't see beyond their own melancholic outlook, and thus romanticize it. I've only ever considered antinatalist ideals when I've...

I thought the season 2 finale was really good. Definitely better than last season's finale and its pacing problems. Everything flowed right and was emotionally intense when it needed to be.

I did that a couple weeks ago with "Bother" by Stone Sour after I first heard it. I loved it so much I just couldn't stop listening to it.
