"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Low Culture

I usually post YouTube videos with a reduced embedded size, well, because I think that a lot of the video detracts and distracts from the music.

That was awful. Where were all the abandoned warehouses for rocking out, or the shiny gold hot pants? Boo hiss hiss.

I like Finland, vodka, folk & metal, but never could get all that much into these guys. Moonsorrow's more my speed, perhaps just need to spend more time listening.

Randal,

Agreement isn't everything it's cracked up to be. I like Korp., you do not. And the world is a better place.

Charles,

It almost lost me, then the tempo slowed...
