Music peaked with classical music in minds stultified by tradition, breast fed on privilege and cosseted in the warm embrace of conservatism, or by those that buy into the golden age bullshit and probably only read “classic literature”, is your name Rees Mogg by any chance?

I feel kind of sad for anyone who narrows their horizons in such a manner as they miss so much of the wonderful talent and innovation that has followed, that sadness is replaced by scorn when they set themselves and their taste as the pinnacle of what is possible. As they are just wrong.

I give you something from both worlds



All in my opinion, achingly beautiful.

Oh dear Prof, nice of you to give those girls merit points for trying, eh.

(to Wise, I'm battling with some stuck up snob who not only feels his music taste is of a higher caliber just because it was penned by men in wigs, but also looks down on 50% of humanity, I will return to silence when the prick has been put in his place, oppression does not sleep.)

I don’t think it’s possible to get further from the “roots of music” than classical music, don’t get me wrong there are some fine pieces, but early music would have been voice, drums and simple instruments, pulsing beats taken in conjunction with mind bending drugs, the words, sagas tying the listeners and players to their histories or incantations to spirits and gods.
Anyone who dismisses “electronic music” so blithely is guilty of parochialism and snobbery.


G.O.L. ― soma holiday
Words from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New world set to trance music, despite it’s electronic nature, far closer to the roots of music.

Nothing better, I love the live recording of "Echoes" done in the ampitheatre at Pompeii, just them and the sound crew and cameras.

Pizzas need meat and red onion and occasionally pineapple and I will fight anyone that says otherwise.

No, just no, to the meat and more importantly the pineapple.

Can always use olives for the fruit food group :)

Good thinking, tomato too, and endemic to the region pizza hails from, and while I am not the pizza fascist that the Swede is, wanting only the boring “pure” Neapolitan, there should be a cultural aspect to our ingredients so no pineapple, ever, and a sense of propriety, no dumping a fried egg in the middle.

One time I admitted that Judas Priest was my favorite in high school and that I'd gone to see them on their Turbo Lover tour and there were people who never spoke to me again.

(Electric Eye was my very first Judas Priest obsession)
Why would anyone be embarrassed for Judas Priest?

Seriously?

I've seen a lot of bands, some for the hell of it, some just because they were on, Judas Priest were the only band I walked out of, and I've seen Ted Nugent.

Truly terrible!

I had this album, and for a while I loved this track.

A poll I will vote in.

I think this maybe true, from time to time we receive birds across the sea from the US that come here for asylum, they feed our hawks, and we haven't had much snow the last few years, which means someone must be eating it.

The DRK are truly kind, cake dispensing angels.

The game that I don't think Wise is going to sign up for, (see https://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=79223.msg2248604#msg2248604)

Will start Tuesday. This may, on whose testimony you choose to believe, lead either to a hopefully enjoyable game, or your death.

Working mainly from home and up until the weekend we had glorious spring weather so the garden was a haven, now it seems to have reverted to the UK type so feeling a bit hemmed in.
But as we furloughed our machinists I get to go in and play with them for development, designed a simple 2 part visor that is cheap, but the procurement procedure for PPI is so retarded here it's unlikely to get the okay this side of WWIII.
Alcohol gremlins have infested my house too! Beer, Whiskey and Gin have all been evaporating, straight out of lockdown into rehab probability high.

The reason being, that wonderful site has the dice throwing option that is necessary for the game.


There are a number of rules where a dice throw is needed, and, the last two games were here, and it pisses off a looney so much he won't ruin it by playing.

The Ugly duckling;

Just because your child is a bit of a munter doesn't mean that those bat ears and big teeth won't metamorphise into something agreeable in time, give them the confidence to see beyond the jeers, beauty comes from within.

RAF Fylingdales, 2055.

The rising seas had made an island of the bleak North York Moors, chasing the river Tees back to the Dales to the north and west, inundating the Humber estuary and Lincolnshire to the south, Historic York itself, abandoned to the encroaching waters of the north sea.

The moors, high and windswept as they were, provided thin fare in the best of times, the ravages of decades of neglect by a southern government trying to resurrect a golden age that never was, the eruptions of viruses and the melting ice caps, had led to a diaspora. Northern Britain was almost empty now.



And then the penguins had come to the Ballistic Missile Early Warning station, their meeting point on the journey north, it was rumoured to have hidden weapons, defence missiles installed to deal with incoming efforts to wipe out the base in time of war. They wanted these weapons for nearby were the ancestral homelands of a most powerful adversary.



The North was almost empty now, but not quite. When the teaming millions departed, and the corpses had been cleared by crow and rat, old ways had reasserted. In the out of way places where they'd gone to ground, the witches resurfaced. A few miles to the north of Fylingdales, the Danby sorceresses were alerted to an evil presence and they were damned if after finally being rid of prying eyes, they would give way again.


Ancient bonds had been re-forged in the revival , foremost amongst these, Clan Glenlivet had reawakened contracts as old as the land to warn the witches of something coming, when the first of these arrived, the hags summoned a Barghest, blacker than a priest's shadow, but for their ember red eyes, the huge spectral beast had fallen on the interlopers, but discerning the taint of more to come, and lacking the power to deal with it alone, they sent word to the clan. Two shrouded figures exuding power had been the reply, passing swiftly through, pausing to lay tributes at the Blue man-o'-the Moss before heading for the abandoned air base.

Clan Glenlivet had not been idle since the victory in Orlando, the recovery of Sister Boudica's soul had been of paramount importance since her loss in Finland, the actions of the three in tracking her to Disney world had been exemplary.
The work done by the priestesses of the glens in splitting her from the penguin curse had furnished them with the final locks to the were-penguins secrets of transformation. They could now, they believed, move among the enemy undetected, able to shape-shift at will, it was time to turn this war around.


This game will be played on Boydsta's site. Sign up here (https://werepenguin.space/index.php?topic=95.msg3728#msg3728)

I come in peace.


Seeing as these sites might be merging like mating worms in the future, I thought I might as well stage a raid to see what's up, say hi to those I know (The mighty Crouton, PP, Boots (bless)) and any others that grace our shores when this place falls to pieces.

I see Inti' has become a sticking point, and for that I feel partly responsible as he fell for my avatar and in his subsequent dissolution, he struck out as scorned lovers often do. Personally, I miss him, and I just know he will be made up to find me here.

As for integration, that would be great, wouldn't that be just great? I mean really great! It's not going to happen (at least not easily).

Ego's, poison in the well, bad blood and good old tribalism will see to that, but that is also why I am here, as a cultural exchange.

We may not be able to change what has happened between these damaged individuals, but we, the rank and file membership can bridge other gaps, make suggestions for slight changes, visit each other to build relationships, babysit and make cookies.

Here's a thought, the mighty Davis has lifted something, that stopped us doing something we weren't apparently ever doing, brilliant, so in reply we could say that should Inti' admit his behavior in trying to get Pars' beheaded by ISIS, was beyond the pale, he would consider a pardon should all things come to pass.
In the mean time come visit, forge bonds, show them that we want this to happen, just don't fall for my avatar or the immortal one may get jealous and have your head removed.

I came to do good.

It's secret because my family doesn't know about it.  My plan is to hide it somewhere in the house and put it on a timer to flood the house with fake smoke at around maybe 4am.  And then I'll see what happens.

I really don't know why I do some of the things that I do.
If you do that, it is because you have a screw loose. You are supposed to be protecting your family from this kind of shit.

Hoppy is correct. You have several loose screws. You need help.

I hope when you do it, someone calls the firebrigade and you get billed the full cost of a callout - which will be thousands of $$$$$. The look on your wife's face when they locate the cause to be your fog machine, will be priceless! (Best you hide all the knives in your house beforehand)

I also hope nobody in your house sustains lung problems from breathing that crap, or trips and injures themselves (because they can't see) trying to flee your house.

It's a dumb idea, Crouton.

You'll understand when you have kids of your own.

Some people have no sense of fun.

I remember playing "dead in bed" when the kids were small, oh the tears, they were actually beating us.
