Apple Talk / Re: Welcome Back to Discordia

I wish I were qualified to talk about the far-right  :sad:


You are not but the most scholarly of pigeons, taking the most educated of shits upon the chess board.

There's always been a creative element to Discordianism, probably because of the influence of those goddamn hippies, that's completely lacking in keki4chastanishitpowhatever. It's probably because of the latter utterly embracing nihilism, but nihilism as espoused by Flea in Big Lebowski. Meme culture is the perfect outlet for it because it's discarded so easily that it never actually forms anything valuable. That's pretty great for jokes, but it doesn't have much else to offer. Enter fringe elements, as Cram pointed out, who have a hundred years experience or so of backing up their own nihilism via elaborate confirmation bias, with white supremacy and fascism.

Is it not written in the Chao te Ching, "a nice tie opens many doors"?

Yes, it is. Chapter 27.

Can't remember if anything of mine is in there, but I'm cool with this.

Anyone else feel like Comey was channeling Vimes with this bit:

"The reason this is such a big deal — we have this big, messy, wonderful country where we fight with each other all the time, but nobody tells us what to think, what to fight about, what to vote for, except other Americans, and that’s wonderful and often painful.

But we’re talking about a foreign government that, using technical intrusion, lots of other methods, tried to shape the way we think, we vote, we act. That is a big deal. And people need to recognize it.

It’s not about Republicans or Democrats. They’re coming after America, which I hope we all love equally. They want to undermine our credibility in the face of the world. They think that this great experiment of ours is a threat to them, and so they’re going to try to run it down and dirty it up as much as possible."

That awful, I'm so sorry and glad you didn't die!

On the other hand, for the rest of your life you get to tell people you're really bad at falling to your death. So, that's a win.
I dunno. I'm so bad at it that I've never come even near as close as Da6s.

Holy shit dude! Glad you're not dead.

How many times does this have to happen before people start keeping their mountains on a leash? I know nobody is trying to raise a viscous attack mountain like those rotten Tibetans, but it only takes one bad moment.

Found this today.

It is absolutely guaranteed to burn down any facebook page you post it on.

Shitting on Empire Records alone is enough to send probably half my friends sputtering.

Earlier this month was the 2nd of these parties. I did the writing shop again, this time getting the prompt "A story about a heavy metal band." Here's what I had after 30 minutes or so:

The last note sounded, deafening on a small fortune of amp stacks, resounding over a packed stadium. Thousands cheered, the constant din of all crowds erupting into 40 years of fervor. Magnus Ulric Vandoerf didn't feel the lines in his face, and the lights washed them off of the audience as they cried out and he was The Hateful Swede again in the headlines. Instead of Mr. Vandoerf, subtitle guitarist.

"Omenus!" they chanted together, "Omenus!"

If he could have known in the 70s where he'd be now, he'd have picked a better name. What the fuck is an Omenus?

The hand waved, perfunctory. Anything else would not be metal. The Drummer tossed his sticks over the stage. Not long ago that would have caused a fistfight. But not these days. Fistfights didn't go well with arthritis.

Magnus tried not to shuffle. He'd tripped on a cord ten years ago and two bruised ribs were headlines for a week. They made it, even The Drummer, whose trips to and from his kit were the most walking he did these days.

"Omenus! Omenus!" it kept coming. It would end soon. They had kits to get to. They didn't need to party all night to have a rough next day.

They sat in the dressing room, not speaking, slowly sipping beers, except for Svendsen. Svendsen was fifteen years clean.

"This is bullshit," Magnus announced. The others enacted dull surprise. "We can't keep doing this," he continued, "look at us!"

He huffed for a while. It was tiring being The Hateful Swede so late, and after a 3 hour set.

"Anyway it's time to call it quits," he finished.

This was enough to stir them.

"Quit and do what," The Drummer said. "I don't even know what it's like being home anymore. Am I going to take up gardening? Fuck, even my grandkids call me The Drummer."

He was right, of course. They were Omenus. Sten grunted from the corner. It was the bassist's version of a speech.

"No fucking retirement," Magnus agreed.

"So then what," Svendsen asked, "honestly I figured we'd die on stage."

"We go back to the beginning," Magnus said.

"Club shows?" said The Drummer, "no thanks. The sound in those things is bad on my ears."

"No, no, no clubs, no shows, no music," Magnus said, "weren't all those just an excuse anyway? We just bought into them the same as anybody else." He stood. "I want to be The Hateful Swede again. Boys," he looked at them. The Drummer in his chair, Svendsen with his water, Sten just there, as always. "Let's go burn down a church!"

He'd have it again, his subtitle. The Hateful Swede.

Going by his eyes, I'm going to say full of shit, but completely believing it.

It's not how I'm used to perceiving my body, since I've been a Skinny White Boy for the 25 years prior to this one.

Welcome to not being a kid anymore.   :lulz:

I woulda kept on with it for a while longer if my glands hadn't tried to kill me  :argh!:

You aren't a kid anymore the first time one of your organs, etc, betrays you.

Fittingly, this moment for me was ass polyps.

I support the banning Nazis thing. I also have ideas about grudges, but I have PMed them along with my Nazi banning support to The Mgt.
