Thanks for sending all those bands to check out. I went through Amazon.com an listened to as much as I could. However, I did not like any of it. I think my tastes are much darker than yours, but thanks for sharing them. I am always up to exploring new music.
Wow, thanks. Some of these names I recognize, and some of them I don't. Give me some time to see if I can listen to samples of them online, perhaps at Amazon.com, and then I'll get back to you. I'm always up to exploring new music. Thanks again.
Yes, on your site you mentioned experimental or eletronic music. Of course, I can't tell you whether or not you'll like these bands/groups/individuals or not, since liking something is very personal, and depends on your outlook, expectations, and preferences.
Some of Nurse With Wound I like, but not all. He can sometimes be unaccessible, but if you like noise, then you might like it. Lustmord did a really great album called Heresy. It is just one guy, and this particular album falls into the "isolationist" catagory, I think. It is very dark, ambient, and chthonic. He samples real geological sounds and uses synthesizers (I guess, don't know much about musical equipment). I really like that particular album. The Place Where the Black Stars Hang is also not bad, though not as good as Heresy.
Lull does stuff similar to Lustmord, but not as exciting. I have two Lull CDs, but the name of the one I like escapes me, and I can't be sure which one it is online.
Genesis P-Orridge is of Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV fame. He is so open that he will do/try anything. The result is that he sometimes produces crap. My favorite TG album is Blood Pressure, though no one else I know likes it. It's noise, but hypnotic in some ways.
Oh, just undecided about what my screen name and page should be called. I can't ever make up my mind about anything like that. I'll probably want to change it later too.
So, I was watching the beginning of the Olympics when all the countries were filing in, and they just kinda skipped over Iceland. I thought that was lame.
They gave brief coverage for countries they said filed in during the commercial break, but that doesn't actually matter since it was all filmed earlier in the day. Oooh well.
Hi Valdimar...we were there for 2 years. My husband was in the Air Force at the time, so we lived at Keflavik NAS. I got to go into Reykjavik several times. I just loved that city :) We also go to travel to Thingvellir once.
Well, I can't say I'm happy that my state is known for having Bush as governor. I dunno about it being the most conservative state, but it really is very conservative.
And yeah, Austin is way more liberal than the entire rest of the state. So no, it's not stereotyping at all. It's known for being that different. There's a campaign here to "Keep Austin Weird", and there's tons of independent stores and venues. We also have tons of live music all over the place, and we've been called the live music capitol of the world.
It's the capitol of Texas, and because of my university and other factors, there's a big mix of people there. And I think it might be the only county in Texas that goes to the Democrats in the national elections.
I should look into that podcast. It sounds interesting.
Wow, I didn't even know that much about Iceland, except for it being green, and Greenland being icy. Haha, that's not good.
Japanese and math seems like an odd combo. What are you planning to do with those? As for the podcast, I haven't heard of it before. What exactly do they talk about on it? Well, more specifically than astronomy.
I actually had a fiend suggest that very thing to me, lol.
I don't see North/South Carolina as being "hostile" towards atheists, but then again I don't really live in parts of either that that seem to really care. I mean, in South Carolina, I pass 8 churches on a 6 minute drive to work, but I'm not constantly asked if I love Jesus. I dunno...I guess sometimes things are probably best left unsaid. Not like it's hurting our relationship now or anything.
Hello fellow atheists! I have joined this site in an attempt to find other rational individuals, such as myself, and to promote a current charity drive that I am trying to get going for the Oklahoma tornado victims. I have managed to get many groups from around my area, including the Beyond Belief Foundation to back me on this endeavor.
I am located in Newnan, Ga and have my own atheist group entitled "Coweta County Atheists". I am currently being backed by Spaulding Co.…
There is a video of the Pope's 'exorcism' caught on film. The man isn't demon possessed, there are likely no 'real' demons. He's just delusional and doesn't want to accept personal responsiblity for his own behavior for his own dysfunctional life.
There is an ad that reads ' Do you support 'traditional' marriage? Vote Now"! .
No, I don't support 'traditional' marriage because there is no such thing. I support heterosexual and same-sex couples marry each other legally , yes. 'Traditional' marriage promoters largely do not believe that heterosexual women are co-equal to their husbands. Their only purpose in 'traditional' marriage is to sexually satisfy their husbands if they can and raise children and do all…
