You guys know those sites that show real life gore (car accidents, war scenes, etc etc) like some fetishist sideshow shit?

If not, that's probably a good thing.

The fact that people actually get off on that shit, or watch it as some "dare" or almost like a joke or test makes me want to hurl. And this isn't even about wanting to avoid reality or anything, I just think that people who are promoting and getting a kick out of this stuff are just sick ****s ("the sick fu cks" is a personal favourite of mine for a band name, nobody steal this pl0x)

I don't touch that shit at all, but I went on facebook and somebody links to some gore site of some video titled "man still alive after being severed in half" or something similar. Ugh..

What do you guys think about this stuff?

Yeah, it's pretty lame
But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

Real gore makes me pretty uneasy, but only online. I don't know why.

Fake gore is the best thing. 80's are my nigga. Real life gore? Shit's serious, so I get serious and help however I can.

Gore on the internet? Do Not Want.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

I think that Western society as whole has a huge disconnect between death and the rest of the culture. Sure, we acknowledge that all things must die, but we're lucky in the fact that 90% of us don't have to experience the death of an animal or another person. However, this creates a morbid curiosity, and for some a fetish, about death and gore. It's a taboo, only giving that much more of a mystique.

sometimes I get in weird moods where I want to see it, not get off to it or anything though. but I'm usually pretty bad with it. seeing it makes me really uncomfortable for a while after seeing it. I dunno why I ever want to look at it, but sometimes...

I mean, I love those horror films with almost comical scenes of violence, I'm a huge fan of death metal which is centred around violence half the time, and I'm fairly familiar with some rather transgressive art

but just hearing about this stuff makes me sick. I don't think I can even explain it.

...the abyss jerks off into you?


OT: Don't get off on that stuff, don't really care for it since I don't understand it. There are some comedy pages on FB that use gore, it's weird, but it doesn't exactly bother me.

So no one gives a **** about my philosophical investigation into the collective mind of the Western world?

Fuck y'all.

actually, I agree with your claim haha. I remember making a thread in the metal forum on the dominating theme of violence in death metal, and there was some discussion that reached similar conclusions: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1534520&highlight=violence

to simplify it, it's kind of a reaction or release from the repression of our instinct for violence. This promotion of near fetishist goreporn is really damn regressive

I'm not curious about that shit anymore. My friends like it though. I told them if they're gonna talk about that shit in front of me I'm gonna hit them, so I don't have to hear any details of any videos like that.

das right, i solve a dislike of gore with violence.

I made a conscious effort to desensitize myself to all kinds of stomach churning shit, because I had aspirations for a career in military medicine. I succeeded in doing so, but I lost my will for a career in the medical field.

I feel less human now for having done so, even the most horrific stuff stirs no visceral response.
