If I see another person with "XX__XX" or XxX___XX___XxX" as a ****ing UG name I'm going to start breaking things.

Seriously people. It's a ****ing letter. Nobody looked at a guys name and said "Oh look, he's got X's surrounding his screen name, that guy must be one bad-ass mother****er."

On second thought, someone probably did think that when they saw that.

Man I'm starting to think people shouldn't be allowed on the internet until they're 18.

random thought:

It makes me sad how there are so many great bands from our past that aren't selling their music anymore. Many classic punk bands will probably fade from memory before long, reduced to nothing more than footnotes in the Wikipedia articles about the new bands they influenced, because newer generations of music fans won't have any opportunity to hear their records.

Somebody should start a record company specifically to press small numbers of CDs that are out of print and won't be released again by the original record labels.

It can't happen. Think of all the classical musicians from so long ago people still love. Keep your CD's. Spread them and pass them down to the next generation.

I know for a fact that more once obscure artists have come to fruition than remained obscure.

I defy you to name me an artist that has remained obscure.

Banner ads SUCK!!!
One of them kept me from posting here for a month, due to the way the firewall is corn-figured at my job.

Emo sucks.
I'm amazed that the same cliches keep happening with emo.
It's been 25 years of the same boring cliched routine.

Specifically; a dude will get into punk, listen to the same 5 bands for a year and then become an emo kid.
He then proceeds to listen to 10,000 "different" emo bands that all sound the fracking same !!!
The bands either scream or cry, but none of them sing about anything real, just whiny high school b.s.

He'll tell you that he "got bored with punk"
and/or "got too mature" for it "and/or
"wanted more than just 3 chords from his music", etc.

These are all lies, because he could have listened to countless punk bands like Radio Birdman, Television, Dead Fingers Talk, Wire, Fall, etc. for "variety".

The truth is that he's a trendly little sh*t who knows that he has a much easier time getting laid without a mohawk and without Black Flag blasting from his stereo.

And yes, this is gender and genre-specific.

Girls do not worry that the music they listen to will interfere with them getting laid.
They know that they can walk into any building on the planet and walk out with a partner, so long as they're willing to lower their standards.

Jazz and classical music fans listen to/play the same music their entire lives without having crises of conscience about being "bored with" jazz and classical music or being "too mature for" jazz and classical music or "wanting more than just playing up and down chromatic or modal scales"

My friend and I just got called sociopathic by a middle-aged man. We were discussing the falacy in logic of religion, that is, their belief in circular logic is legendary. And he proceeds to tell us that we need to get our "medication checked."

The thing that angers me is that I just once want to sit down with a person I completely disagree with, and have them argue with me without using the standard "I'm right and I don't need to prove it response."

Also: "get my medication checked?"

Come on. That is the most cliche old-person response there is.

The most cliche old-person response is "when I was your age...", followed by "when you a get a little bit older.."

I have certain spiritual beliefs that I will gladly discuss, but not argue, openly.

First and foremost, when I was your age (just kidding)...when I was on the streets, there was no Food Not Bombs.
The only people that would feed us homeless folk were religious folk.
This made me stop hating religious folk and made me see that religion can make some people better, which, prior to that, I didn't believe.

The thing that turned me off to chemicals was that I had to go to too many funerals for friends of mine who either OD'ed or drove drunk and died, or had to go to too many weddings for former punk friends who became yuppies.

In my youth, I happily used chemicals to escape bad surroundings, but stopped when my surroundings got better.
I found that too many punks either lived and died like G.G. Allin (drink, fight and f*ck) or turned into their parents (happy hour and weekend alcoholic slaves to their corporate masters).

Few things will make you feel more alone than when you look at a friend and know they're dead, either taking a dirt nap or mutated into a yuppie.

Analyzing things like this, coupled with experiences with weird sh*t (like my tale of being visited by the ghost of Stiv Bators), made me come to believe in spirituality, specifically a Quaker (pacifist) Taoist blend that I call Jahoism (prononced yow-ism).

That ye might understand better, here's some chronicled weird sh*t to ponder.....

http://shell.amigo.net/%7Etmv/Special_Inv4.html

In 1620, teenaged Sister Maria of Agreda, began having unnerving visions, or raptures. Cloistered in the convent, she would meditate for hours, sometimes all day, and return and tell her fellow sisters wondrous stories of her "over 500" spiritual travels to a faraway land, meeting savages and telling them of the Word of Christ.

It seems that the Spanish explorers, while in the unexplored region north of Mexico, had encountered numerous Native American tribes in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas who had already been converted to Christianity, and somehow knew of "Jesus Christ" the Savior. Even more fantastic were the Indian's claims of being visited by a white-skinned "Blue Lady" who appeared to many, drifting in a blue haze while she preached the word of the Lord in their native languages. She helped them to build crosses and places of worship, and even handed out rosaries and religious objects.


"From 1620 to approximately 1631 the Spanish nun flew from Spain to the North American State of New Mexico on more than 500 occasions.

Even in death, Sister Agreda defies the rationalists and supplies non-believers and the faithful with evidence of her fantastic talents. In a secluded crypt on the grounds of the convent we find what proves to be the latest dramatic chapter to her unbelievable story. Sister Marie Jesus Agreda's body, it turns out, is incorruptible. Like a small number of deceased mystics and Catholic saints, the nun's body refuses to naturally decay, even after 335 long years. The flush of her cheeks and her life-like features still baffle the Catholic Church and modern science. During an opening of her casket in 1909, a cursory scientific examination was performed on the pristine body in peaceful repose, astounding the scientists and doctors who were allowed to perform the examination. In 1989 a Spanish physician named Andreas Medina participated in another examination of Sister Maria Jesus Agreda as she lay in the convent of the Conceptionist nuns, the same monastery where she had lived in the 1600s.

Dr. Medina told investigative journalist Javier Sierra in 1991: "What most surprised me about that case is that when we compared the state of the body, as it was described in the medical report from 1909, with how it appeared in 1989, we realized it had absolutely not deteriorated at all in the last eighty years.'" Complete photographic and scientific evidence was obtained by investigators before the respectful closing of her glass-lidded casket.

I dont really hate religious people at all. I was brought up Roman Catholic, as were most of my mates and pretty much every white person I like. Being brought up in that sort of enviroment did help us be a bit more caring etc. because we were always told to. I dont believe in the beardy man stuff but I respect most of the people, most of them are just trying to be good people, even if it is just so they get brownie points with God.


And I realize theres a fair share of wankers out there too.

I guess y'all missed the "punks and religion" thread awhile ago where I mentioned how I went to Quaker meeting houses and Unitarian churches.
In Philly, lots of punk shows happen at the Unitarian church.

Like I said, I've watched friends of mine dance the ole "drink, fight and f*ck, live fast, die young" tango and they're either dead or yuppies (which is undead, I reckon).

But you're overlooking the interesting part of what I posted, i.e. the Blue Nun.
This lady astrally projected across the ocean and talked to Indians in their own tongue!
Explorerers met Indians who had seen her and talked to her!
335 years later, her body won't decompose!


I love weird Fortean shtuff like that which can't be rationally explained.

EDIT: Also, remember that Quakers are very open-minded, in addition to being anti-war.
One of the (now sadly forgotten) bigwigs in the Civil Rights movements was a gay Black Quaker named Bayard Rustin.

I think anyone who says they hate religious people is a moron. Sure, religion is responsible for a lot of the bad in the world, but it's also responsible for a lot of good things. I was born into a family of Presbyterians and am currently taking a confermation class at my church. This has made me question my faith a lot.

The way I see it, the bible can't be looked at as a concrete document. It seems like people are willing to call other ancient religions bolonga, but are too afraid to say the same about a religion as commonly accepted as christianity. I don't believe most of whats in the bible, it was written by poorly educated people thousands of years ago, anyone who tells you that everything in there is the truth is a nimrod. However, the bible is a very good thing to read through every once and a while, as there overall message of it is very just and very important to society.

So while i have been on my resent questioning of faith, i have been having trouble understanding a few things. First off was the very common "If God is all forgiving and unconditionally loving, why would he send people to hell just for doing somehing wrong?"
After reading through the bible, my sense of hell is not a painful firey eternity of torture, but more a realization of you sins and that they were wrong. Another thing I've been thinking about is "Go out and make desicples of all men." Now, there is nothing I hate more than people forcing views upon one another, and I have yet to decide what I think about this.

Aaaaaaand I'm rambling. Sorry, just felt like I'd post my current thoughts about religion.

Rizzo im a congregationalist (we are like the hippy christians) and ive taken all my sunday school classes and **** like that but i have to say that i like your representation of hell

a realisation of all the sins and wrongs you have done, i like that, its not as scary and seems to have more of a purpose

The cool thing about the bible is that a verse can take different meanings depending on the mood/situation you are in. I was raised christian, but lately I've questioned my faith. I think I've come to realize that I am christian, and here's why. The amount of good that the church does is hard to ignore. I think the reason that people can't see that is because a few bad eggs have ruined the whole bunch. Habitat for Humanity is a good example of a Christian oraganization that helps alot of people. The church also helps people overcome drug and alcohol addiction. One of my old sunday school teachers was an addict and alcholic, and christ helped her overcome it.

I know that alot of christians are hypocritical, drink Saturday night and go to church Sunday. A lot of them stick thier noses up at those who are different, and hate those that have different ideas of what's right and what's wrong. A lot of christains force thier ideas on people that don't want them. But there are good ones out there, ones that would rather help than hurt. One's that care about others and about those that are different.


Sorry if this makes no sense at all, I'm busy watching Lost.

The idea of religion is great, and a lot of the organizations and charities are great. It's just religion has become a tool for the government and people who want to scare you into doing what they want. I call myself agnostic because I don't think I believe in god, but anything is possible and you never know what can happen. It's all speculation and we will not find out until we die.

I for one do not like religion. Through my "life-style" (I love the way Christians use that term) I'm going to hell. No excuses. Now, it's not like people are simply content to just leave me alone. No, they had to remind me daily that what I do is wrong.

What made me furious was the way they proceeded to question my refusal to believe in their beliefs, when they previously told me I was going to hell. So what, I was supposed to believe in something that told me I was ****ed six ways to Sunday? No thank you.

The thing I tell every religious person which sets them off is that they don't realize that the bible was written by different people, at different times, with different intentions, and not by God. That is why their religion is so fragmented and problematic. Not to mention that the bible is not a collection of all books concerning God, but rather a carefully selection of different stories which makes the most cohesive foundation for a religion.

And I've met good religious people. They exist. Religion has done some good things. But I am a firm believer that the benefits of religion are not enough to outweigh the injustices.
