So I was digging around my room to find some lined paper so I could start my US History AP summer reading stuff and then I stumbled on some papers I thought I lost that I thought I'd share with the metal forum.

So one of the last assignments we had to do last year in World History was Model United Nations, which if you haven't ever done, sucks balls. I had to go out and buy slacks and a shirt that buttons. It was awful. On top of that you had write 2 two-page essays on two topics that the teacher chose. Which he chose the Darfur Crisis and Taiwanese Independence. My country was Norway (which I only chose because of, you guessed it, black metal :p. First essay about Darfur I tried on, but I also had to help one of my Asian friends do research because she's lazy and stupid and needed me to do a ****load of work for her. So by the time I got to the second paper I was too tired to write ****. I tried to find a way to word that Norway doesn't really care about Taiwan, but I figured it'd be easier to go off topic and talk about Chthonic. And then when I got the papers back I noticed that I got a higher score on the Chthonic paper than the Darfur paper.

(FOR TL;DR: I got a better score by going off topic to rant about Chthonic than I did on the essay I actually tried on)

ANYWAY, so this thread has a topic,

How often do you do metal stuff for topics on essays or randomly sneak in references and stuff like that into your schoolwork?

My proposal on energy reform and conservation for my AP Government & Politics class was titled: Electric Funeral
Title of My essay on Catch 22: Peace Sells, But Who's Buying
Another essay (I forget on what book) was titled: Am I Evil?
Heart of Darkness was titled: Choc full o' Darkness (not really metal, but heart of darkness is a pretty crazy book)

...thats about it so far. I've thought about titling an essay for a World Religions class "Perenial Quest"

Oh, and the reason you got a higher score is because you used an outside influence (beyond the generic History/Nations lesson) to back up a statement.

Works fuckin' wonders.

No, we were supposed to use outside sources. They're current events, they're not gonna have much in the history books about Darfur.

I've got a few
-Last year I wrote an 8 page paper on the history of metal for Music Appreciation class
-The next semester I had to do a speech in speech class and I chose to do it on Jason Becker.
-In my senior year of high school I was in Lit and we had to make a picture board of stuff that explains ourselves. I put bands like Dark Angel, Slayer, Death,etc etc and presented it to class.
-Last year I wrote a paper on Alexander the Great and cited Iron Maiden as a source. Particuarly the part where it goes "They wouldn't follow him to India
Tired of the combat, pain and the glory"(Even though thats not entirerly true)
-Last year in the same class wrote about Egyptian mythology and cited Carl Sander's linear notes from Unas Slayer of the gods

When I was still in school, I never brought metal into my work.

Closest kind of experience I had with that was my teacher seeing a highly detailed Angelcorpse logo drawing in the back of my Macbeth book, and interrogated me on it, she was actually pretty interested.

which reminds me: for my Music Tech AS coursework I did a bagpipe metal arrangement of Scarborough Fair and an arrangement of Victoria's Secret by Sonata Arctica.

And I listed Opeth as an influence for my Music AS composition

Not into my schoolwork, but throughout the whole year, I kept having (rather one sided) conversations with my math teacher about Psycroptic.

My main teacher also brought a small article about metal to class one day. He had me explain what the hell the article is about to the class. Asshole...

And small incident with my history teacher:

"Back when I was young, there was good music, like Bach. Today it's just Metallica and stuff..."
Oi, you dissing Metallica?
"Hell no! Metallica rules! METAL IST KRIEG!!!!"

I miss school...

40-50, but back then the market for music here was extremely limited, and most families were new immigrants who brought their music with them, so he grew up with classical music.

In my senior year of high school, I was in a psychology class and I did a paper on the effects on metal on people. In my first year of college, I did three metal related papers (my experience at Ozzfest 06, Death Metal vs Black Metal, and the origins of metal). I did a speech on how I got into metal for my Public Speaking class and also read some Manowar songs for epic poetry. Lastly, I had a project for Music Appreciation where I had to listen to classical music and I wrote down Sting of the Bumblebee by Manowar.

I've never understood why people insist on shoehorning their taste in music into schoolwork. There seem to be so many posts about 'metal in essays' here (and in the Pit) that it makes me think there must be English the teachers the world over going "not ANOTHER essay on metal"

Actually, my English professor told me not to do another metal essay.

I would never get away with incorporating metal in my schoolwork, nor would I want to. But I'm not in High school anymore so I guess that's different. The only thing close to metal and schoolwork was for my Personal Idiom File for English where I had to come up with the definitions for 100 English words which were unknown to me, so I just went through a whole lot of metal lyrics, ending up with a paper that was filled with words like 'miasma', 'credence' and 'unbridled' (all from Opeth lyrics)

I had to do this class this year all about the constitution and crap, ended up bringing up Dee Sniders whole thing with the PMRC when we came to free speech

My friend somehow managed to do a paper on Varg

Apparently the associate principle was behind him when he was quoting Varg's account of what happened

Im looking forward to this upcoming year because Im taking a music theory class...and at one point or another you have to analyze a song....its either gonna be necrophagist, meshuggah, or behemoth, can't decide

i can't think of very much metal related stuff that i've put into actual school work... But this one time in math class i was writing down a bunch of songs for a friend to listen to and my math teacher took the paper i was writing on a away from me , looked at the songs titles
(which included Songs like i cum blood and ****ed with a knife) and proceeded to freak out

Hmm, that reminds me I did a book report for English about the Norwegian Black Metal Scene. Not a real book but it certainly was able to pass as such. I got to draw a burning church on the cover. I got an A.

And thanks for the heads up on the music theory thing, I'm taking that next year and I'm screwed enough for havings music dyslexkias.
