But that's the way I like it, baby
I don't wanna live for ever
And don't forget the joker

I first heard Lemmy in Hawkwind, which made me listen to Space Ritual again, for the first time in more than a decade.  It holds up.

And though Lemmy doesn't play on this track. "Sonic Attack" seems to be perfectly made for this board.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go0JMX3zNeA



In case of Sonic Attack on your district, follow these rules...

 If you are making love, it is imperative to bring all bodies to orgasm simultaneously
 Do not waste time blocking your ears
 Do not waste time seeking a soundproof shelter
 Try to get as far away from the sonic source as possible
 Do not panic... (do not panic)

 Use your wheels, it is what they are for
 Small babies may be placed inside the special cocoons and should be left, if possible, in shelters
 Do not attempt to use your own limbs
 If no wheels are available, metal, not organic, limbs should be employed whenever possible...
 Remember, in the case of Sonic Attack survival does mean every man for himself (for himself)
 Statistically more people survive if they think only of themselves (only themselves)

 Do not attempt to rescue friends, relatives, loved ones.
 You have only a few seconds to escape
 Use those seconds sensibly or you will inevitably DIE.

 Do not panic (do not panic)
 Think only of yourself (only of yourself)
 Think only of yourself

 These are the first signs of Sonic Attack:
 You will notice small objects, such as ornaments, oscillating
 You will notice a vibration in your diaphragm
 You will hear a distant hissing in your ears
 You will feel dizzy
 You will feel the need to vomit
 THERE WILL BE BLEEDING FROM ORIFICES
 There will be an ache in the pelvic region
 You may be subject to fits of hysterical shouting, or even... laughter
 These are all sign of imminent Sonic destruction.

 Your only protection is flight
 If you are less than ten years old remain in the shelters and use your cocoon
 Remember: you can help no-one else.

 You can help no-one else.

 Do not panic.
 Do not panic.
 Think only of yourself.
 Think only of yourself.
 Think only of yourself.

To be fair, he lived a pretty long time considering the lifestyle he led.

This is that reasoning again, right here, really.  Go fuck yourself

The reasoning that if you physically trash your body with drugs, alcohol, and indiscriminate sexual activity, it's not too shabby to make it to 70?

Can you point out what's wrong with the logic, or are you just going to have a temper tantrum over it?

I saw motorhead live once.  they were loud as fuck.

not many people have been to more motorhead shows than lemmy, himself.

maybe loud as fuck rock and fucking roll on a regular basis has health benefits?

Well, seeing how everyone dies, perhaps making sense of it right now as the consequence of his non-traditional lifestyle is just something I find objectionable.

Is it making light, though? You may be reading that in yourself. I read it as "Wow, he had a good run for someone who ran so hard".

It is also possible that you are far more emotionally invested than others, who are trying to make conversation about a performer they don't really think about very much at all. Much like the absurd level of defensiveness you see in Bernie Sanders supporters whenever someone makes a joke about him, you may simply be so emotionally invested in Lemmy as a hero-figure that it brings you emotional pain when someone says something that you perceive as disrespectful of your hero, regardless of their intention.

Myself, I don't give a fuck and barely know who Lemmy is. I am totally unfamiliar with Motorhead's music. It's a stretch for me to really even be involved in this conversation at all because I do not actually care, beyond being interested that you told someone to go fuck themselves because they observed that 70 is not bad for a guy who was so hard on his body.

Thing is, it's not about that.  It's about respecting the recently departed, regardless.  The potential lost is greater than any reason you serve as explanation.

I myself am not a fan of shitting on people's graves or celebrating their death. However, I don't personally think that observing that someone made it pretty far given the circumstances is disrespectful. You are free to disagree, but you can't impose your brand of morality on everyone else.

The best you can do is pose a convincing argument for it, and hope it catches on.

My attempts at prescriptive morality eventually fall into self-contradiction.  That, to be fair, is what happens when I try to reason with the subject of death.  A Sardinian Shepard in a past life never told me nothing about whispering a little word to someone's ear.  [I'm afraid my attempt at charicature is lacking somewhat]
