I have noticed that all you guys here are very open-hearted and kind and you're very nice. On all other forums I've been too a topic such as the Balooooon one I posted eariler would have gotten reply's like this:<br><br>"This is spam"<br>"I hate you"<br>"You arenow banned from the forum"<br><br>On this board all we get is people playing in on the joke and are open-hearted. That is what I like. It's probly 'cause u are Zappa fans and they're more "free" so to speak. So I like this board because I don't have to be afraid to post what's inside my head and can have a few good laughs each day.<br><br>Thank you guys ;)

Dammit! You caught my secret and nasty plan. I who planned a great spam madness by gaining your respect has just flown outta da window and now I have to relate to my only option left, namely .... bunnies  :P<br><br>Just joking here. Seriously though, I meant what I posted.

"Why this is the best board EVER!"  <br><br>Because you can start posts like:<br><br>FUCK ALL OF YOU.<br><br><br>And, they'll actually take off.

This is the best board I've been to in a long time.<br>As for the last ones I've been to ?<br><br>1. The GameFAQs message boards<br>I really had a ball here for about 2 or 3 years, until a lot people there started to run past my thought patterns. It got so bad that people started ignoring me, and l killed more topics than I stimulated. Honestly, the post count in a topic would often come to a halt almost immediately unless I deleted my post. Even a topic that I made trying to discuss this involuntary site-wide pact to ignore me(I think it could be my rambling factor, which I suffer from on every forum) was slightly ridiculed, I just said "fuck it" and left forever.<br><br>2. The iMotorhead.com forums<br>It's an alright forum, and the people are for the most part tolerable, save for the fact that its not easy to have an exponentially deep conversation. That and the preferred styles of music don't often go much past rock and/or metal, and at the furthest, jazz. I still actually post here sometimes..<br><br>3. The homestarrunner.net forums<br>These were some pretty decent forums at first, but I got tired of some of the immaturity(light-hearted and with usually good intentions, but it was just very annoying to me). Last time I went lurking, I noticed a large strain of online relationships (which I am strictly opposed to). This sickened me even more. I'm not going back there again...<br><br>4. The Dark Legions Pub<br>The place I go to for talking metal(mostly doom/black metal). This place is a more mature and serious place than either of the ones I've talked about. A number of them are self-proclaimed practictioners of philisophical nihilism, sympathizers or even heavy supporters for National Socialism, racism, anti-Semitism, and/or certain forms of Nazism(mostly those who support http://www.nazi.org), so I will get ridiculed if I try out making some topics there that are usually normal for a place like this(I keep a number of opinions to myself). My favorite part of it all is that I can type out long-drawn essays and paragraphs and be guaranteed that at least one person will read through the whole thing without getting lost. <br><br>As for these forums, they're great ! Mature, wise and informed people with large musical tastes. I just hope I can personally stand to stay here a lot longer than I have at some of these.

I visitited it again a month ago or so, when the newest CoF came out, but there was no real serious and critical conversation at hand any more it seemed. <br><br>

Well, i visited the Dark Legions Pub - and I don't think I would fit in. <br><br>Most of the posters still seem to be in the puberal Nilistic state - at least the staff is - AND there's a lot of Jewbashing and stuff going on. Not my cup of thea. <br>It's not that it are only some handfull of posters who need a visit from the Brain Police, it is the entire place that breathes and radiates this Nazi-Atmosphere. <br><br>There even is an offical section on that board to "discuss revolutionary action against Israel and its vassal state the USA, as well as a general analysis of Judean technocracy and culture, beliefs and values in the context of al-Qaeda and its ongoing action in the jUSA [sic!]"<br><br>A place to analyze the Juedean-Christian culture (as it is the determining factor of our present day culture) in a philosophical manner would be definetly be interesing, sure - but stated in the terms above, it simply reeks of good old biased anti-semitism and uncut Nazism. Thanks, but no thanks.<br><br>It might be called 'serious', yes, but surely not intelligent. I mean, apart from the above, I'll give another example: the appearant total adoration of Burzum. come on, he made some good records, true, but 'Vargs' political/philosophical views are <br>a) Very naieve<br>b) Asocial<br>and to some degree<br>c) Dangereous<br><br>So I guess most of the posters over there can be filed under the categories A and B.<br><br>Or do I have things wrong on this place Homsar? And what are your views concerning all this?<br>

I mean, have you ever read this one part of this interview(http://www.mourningtheancient.com/burzum.htm) he had, and a diagram he drew, that attempts to justify his change from black metal to ambient and synth ? He goes on rambling on how everything besides "Aryan music" is just "alien music" and how much better "Aryan music" is. He also talks about how important it is to spread Aryan music to the Aryan people. A bullshit theorem, I believe. Music(to me, at least) is an artform, and art critics are just Philistines. He's pissing all over the name of artwork in general with this.<br><br>
Quote:
5) "I recently heard a rumour that you now have a guitar in your cell, although you don?t plan to use it on upcoming albums. In the past you have stated that you will no longer record any more "metal music". In relation to this, you have stated that you no longer want to play guitar anymore. To me this seems a bit strange - after all, bands who share similar views to your own and who you've mentioned in the past (Vidkuns Venner for example) play guitar-based music. And, of course, "guitar-based" need not necessarily mean "metal" music. After all, surely an electronic synthesizer is no more Nordic than an electronic guitar. Thus is it possible that you might use a guitar in the way you did on the later tracks on Filosofem, given the chance?"
<br><br>[quote author=Varg Vikernes link=board=general;num=1055284177;start=0#8 date=00/00/00 at 00:00:00]<br>The guitar is an European invention, just like the synthesizer. However, the music played on guitar is mostly nigger music - and that goes definitely for all metal music. I have nothing against guitars, as you might know a lot of classical music is played on guitar. If I would make any more guitar music it would be classical music. So, it has nothing (or better; little) to do with the instrument in itself.  <br><br>I guess I have been a bit unclear when talking about this, until now. Anyway, what I explain above should clear things up for you. I categorize music like this; Aryan music (European classical and folkmusic, as well as some other more electronic music); Alien music with Aryan lyrics (like all these Viking-metal bands, Oi-rock and the like) and; Alien music with alien lyrics. As simple as that. <br><br>Bands like 'Vidkuns Venner', 'No Remorse' and so on, are "half-way" to the right way, and I know that in our times we might need to get people on our side one step at a time. Being used to nigger music and nigger or Jew lyrics they need to become used to the lyrics first, and then they can be introduced to real Aryan music. That's why I can support these "half-way" to the right way bands. That is pretty much the role of old Burzum as well, to be a 'gateway to Heaven'. You become what you listen to (mentally), so I deem it very important that we promote Aryan music to our Aryan race. This as well, is a part of the struggle. This way we can save our collective mental and spiritual health as well. Instead of primitive, degenerate, subhuman mentality promoted by the nigger (pop) music today, we can educate and 'heal' our race with Aryan music, promoting. Aryan ideals like honesty, justice, honour, faithfulness, strength, courage, respect, nature awareness and so on.[/quote]<br><br>And in response to your PM, yes; I am really only 15. Older people who I meet online usually get shocked when I tell them. They always think I'm in my 20s or so, someone even told me once that they thought I was in my 30s.

When these people ask me why I think I know as much as I do, I insist that it was simply the fault of overexposure to reality at an early age.

My parents are not hardcore conservatives, or even hardcore liberals. When they had my older sister, they tried TOO HARD not to spoil her. They would not let her eat sugar-coated cereal, or even candy (except on Halloween). This was a big mistake on their part, as she has ended up being very cynical and sometimes extremely bitter (she SLAPPED our mother when she was just 5)- but she's actually succeeding in life, as she is currently attending law school.<br><br>When I came along, however, they just spoiled me rather than trying to raise me assertively (which I believe they are not capable of doing). They let me eat any kind of cereal I wanted, and I could eat candy any time it was appropriate to. Not only that, but when we got a computer, that was it. I spent most of my time using the computer. Seldom did my parents ever MAKE me go outside after that. When I discovered the internet, I read up a LOT about the world. I read of utter travesties and arrogant pillars of corruption. They jaded me. I started to form more educated opinions and meditate on subjects such as human nature. A few older people tell me that I think I'm a know-it-all, and what I know means nothing because of my lack of experience. I do acknowledge the possibility. I live a sheltered life, and I haven't experienced much of the outside world. I have, however, seen the utter travesty that is the population of my school (which consists mostly of wiggers, rednecks, and hybrids of both). I somewhat blame them for their discrimination against people like me, which has given me insight to form more opinions about the human race.<br><br>The thing that really got me going is when my sister actually informed me that I was spoiled. I thought about it for a while, and realized the truth. I often blame this for my poor-to-average performance in school (in certain subjects, anyway), but I also hypothesize that it could be an overactive imagination or too much thinking for myself.

[/quote]<br><br>let those older people ramble along. remember that zappa said something like: if you wanna get a educated, drop out of school and go to the liberary.<br><br>i wish my (future) kids will be as eloquent and nuanced as you at age 15.  but then again, I also pray that they don't become sheltering monks...<br><br>i don't know if your happy - I hope so - but I sincerly hope that someday, you will go out there, in that vast, interesting world...  not all people are deadbeats or bullying idiots - as this forum proves. <br>knowledge isn't everything - i was under that impression for a while.  From 10 to 15 I lived more or less solely, reading books, my only social contact was at school, and I was jealous at my 1 year younger brother who had tons of friends. At 15, I decided I wanted that to, and joined my brothers circle of friends - which took me a lot of mental courage (among other things because my brother objected at first...) <br><br>After that I met some more, other and even greater friends (the snowball effect) with whom up to this very day I enjoy very good (silly&serious) conversations, great laughs AND great dumb activities (such as drinking ourselves pissed, sleeping in graveyards, going to concerts, art exibitions and dancing to silly eighties music and eurotrash...) <br><br>I guess I feel like a more complete person now...<br>
