Our leaders use Fascist tactics, but they aren't really Fascists. They're Feudalists building a system where peasants pay tribute to the new nobility first on economic divisions, and to each other secondarily based on those social divisions.

I wonder if QG could Big Words that.

Re: OP -- I think the main stumbling block is the way you're trying to reach Occam's Razor by way of statistics and probability, which as far as I can tell is, "It's more probable for a single thing to happen many times than only once," which I'm not sure plays out IRL.

It's a nifty way to recursively prove the point, though.  "You are a story in the Experience Machine because it's more likely your moment of existence is repeated than it is being singular."

But isn't New Jersey itself technically a terrorist organization?

There appears to be something wrong with the website, it keeps throwing "untrusted connection" warnings on all of my web browsers and loadig without page styles

What part of this place should be trusted?

You can trust me.

To do what?   :eek:

Sorry to hear that LMNO.

That wasn’t the only band you were in though, was it?
I still have Donald., but that's more political punk. 

:(

No more desert driving music.

I took to the habit of multitracking our practice sessions, so there may be some posthumous releases, at least.


End of an era.

And I think the break up of The Frost Heaves is sending ripples through the universe as it took me several times to even type coherently.


That's what happens when you write a song about the Old Ones.

If 200+ years of "democracy" has taught us anything, it's that we can disregard Vex's views on anything musical.

Also mine, according to LMNO.   :lulz:

A guy says that Burn Down the Mission is "okay" just once, and look what happens.

Sad to say, after many years, The Frost Heaves have broken up.  No acrimony, just run its course.

I'll be curating and uploading various albums, demos, remixes, and the like over at http://frostheaves.bandcamp.com.

Current mood: sad, but resigned to it.

Single point failure is the entire situation I inherited.

Fortunately, the new bosses are all about spending money.  I can fix anything, if you give me money and time.

Anything?

I love Billy.

Billy, I suspect, is the only person that keeps us all from murdering each other.  Seriously, I have never had a crew as whiny, bitchy, and hateful as this one.  The only person nobody hates is Billy.  He's like having fucking Dondi on the crew.  Nobody wants to disappoint him.

That's an honest shame, since it seemed like you had found a good place for you, after the disaters what befell you with Jim, et al.

Climate change is a real phenomenon that has been shown repeatedly, scientifically and mathematically, to be caused primarily by human activity. It's really not really a debate except on the fringes where uneducated people think they can opine hard enough to overcome mountains of actual evidence.

That said, I'm personally in favor of carbon taxes and a forced march to clean and renewable energy for reasons that would still be valid even if climate change weren't real. Political and economic power derive from control of resources, and the most important resource in the modern global economy is energy. Decentralized energy generation using renewable resources disrupts the monopoly of existing power structures. Those powers do anything that crosses their mind in order to sabotage any attempt to disrupt that monopoly, which is ethically bad, but more importantly, their activities induce widespread cultural conservatism by fostering popular thinking that new ideas are dangerous or unsound simply because they are new. That leaves human civilization in a really bad position with respect to adaptability and progress of all kinds. We should have solved all kinds of problems by now that are portrayed as "unsolvable" just because solving them doesn't make anyone rich. Capitalism may have been necessary for the Industrial Revolution, but post-Information-Revolution, it's holding us back so much that the survival of the species is at risk.

So regardless of global warming/climate change, we should be forcing the issue of clean energy because we have to undermine and ultimately disassemble all scarcity-based economic systems.

THIS!

Also, ditto.  May I yoink?
