You should go away for a few minutes and don't come back until you've shut up.

So, the "wolf name" thing.

I think THIS FUCKING GUY pretty much wins that whole thing forever.

DFHVN. (aka Deafheaven)

Has some black metal-style vocals in spots but again, a minute or two of vocals in a ten minute song.

Also Wolves in the Throne Room might fit the bill.

I mean, what if a woman laughed and was like "Oh, LOL, you're a man? I didn't notice!"

Shift the context just a little, and people will take it as an insult. NOT NOTICING who people are isn't flattering, it isn't nice, it isn't post-racism. It's just being a dick, unless you authentically have brain damage or a disorder that makes it difficult for you to perceive physical attributes of individual people.

I think I've mentioned before that my dad is horrifically racist.

He claims he's not because one of his best friends is Greek - and as he puts it, "You'd never know the guy is Greek unless you go to his house because he keeps all that stuff behind closed doors where it doesn't bother anybody! That's the good kind of immigration right there!"

The 'I don't see race' idea always reminds me of that. "You can have a different heritage so long as it doesn't offend me, the mainstream majority, by being obviously different."

I know I'm late to the party here, but are Greeks not considered "white people" where you're from?

Because that's pretty weird.

Isis has some vocals but it's like 40 seconds of vocals in a ten minute song. You might dig them. Agalloch is good for that sort of thing also.

So, I'm looking for some suggestions for music to listen to while I'm writing. I'm looking for stuff without prominent lyrics, and maybe a little ambient as long as it's still actually musical. This is what I usually listen to: C418 and Geinō Yamashirogumi's Akira OST. They are both pretty varied, so try to give a few songs a listen to get a good idea of what they're like. I'm just getting a little tired of the same two artists, but haven't found anything else that is suitable. Any suggestions?

Lawrence Welk in the Youtube Doubler with Godspeed you Black Emperor.

Trust me on this one.  You're write until you pass out and crash.

That's actually something I would enjoy. :lulz:

Those are dried lake troll tentacles that she's woven into a hat.

Don't fuck with that lady.

As of this exact moment, I am 47.  I hate everything, and I want the world to die.

Happy Birthday you terrible old bastard!

I just happened to see him perform live in Boston back in, like, 2004 or 5. I didn't even mean to, he was just the free late afternoon act in the park before the big Boston Pops concert and fireworks show for the 4th of July. I was getting wasted on a corporate expense account with a bunch of traveling magazine salesmen for the weekend and I was pretty shitfaced but the sight of a presumably not-actually-140-year-old David Lee Roth looking like some heinous spandex-draped demilich crack troll while screeching out Van Halen covers and "Just a Gigolo" with some shamefacedly anonymous backing band scared me most of the way sober before I could push through the seething mass of Massholes enough to get out of hearing distance. It was one of the best weekends of my life, but sure as hell not because of THAT.

And if you think I'm letting you off the hook, well, estas muy equivocado, 'mano.

You think Phil Collins is bad?

Because in the context of the times, he was a pretty goddamned reasonable alternative to this:

Because that fucking guy actually existed and was popular.

for shit like this:

So when you wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night tonight with fever dreams of DLR's pance, I suggest you soothe and calm yourself back into a sleep-capable state with a little of this:

No need to thank me, I'm just happy to be of service.

Also, a huge point in Phil Collins' favor that everyone seems to overlook is that he's not goddamn Don Henley.



That youtube rabbit hole led me to a Roxette binge in 2 clicks. So worth it.

It's all that clean PNW living.

He'll be hanging Christmas decorations in his beard next.  Mark my words.

If by "christmas decorations" you mean "some leftover chicken salad" I've already beaten you to the punch.

I mean do you remember this shit?

That's most of the late-stage Cold War in, like, 5 minutes. It's great. And it kind of takes the piss on the whole "Max Headroom/Money for Nothing" cheesy animation that was so popular at the time.
