9/20/04 02:04 pm - metalgarurumon - Leading a Whore to Water (Glassjaw's "Everything you Ever Wanted to Know About Silence")

I bought it a couple days ago. It's not what I expected, but it is totally spifftacular beyond explanation.

Even if I could explain it, my class schedule warrants me no time to do so.

Oh yeah, I updated the layout, if any of you care.

To the Editor:
Where is the ACLU when you need 'em?

Last Saturday night I went to Mountain Crest High School and watched some Mustangs dance and play instruments. As I entered the school, very clean and well maintained though it is I immediately became disturbed: there on the wall near the door hung the words "In God We Trust." And except for a brief when, thank God, no invocation was offered: in prominent view also hung Old Glory.

Symptoms of additional incorrectness began to appear soon thereafter when the young people started their performance: None of the guys wore earrings and none of the girls bore tattoos. They were clean cute, disciplined, organized, polite (a kid apologized after he bumped my shoulder), smiled a lot, wore modest costumes (none of which malfunctioned), twirled toy rifles and performing exceptionally and there was no smell of marijiuana in the air. The bleachers, moreover, were full of parents, all of whom looked heterosexual.

MCHS, obviously, needs to be fixed; 1) The environment there is one of blatant insensitivity. 2) The environment there is non-urbane. 3) The students are allowed little, if any, free expression. 4) Who knows how many gun nuts are being harbored inside? 5)Intolerance of alternative life styles is rampant. And 6) MCHS students need to be taught standards such as moral relativity.

Where in heaven's name is ACLU when you need 'em?

Come to think of it, I wouldn't doubt that there's a nativity scene lurking on the property somewhere...

Where shall I begin...

You know... I really dislike that somehow despite this thing called 'separation of church and state' we still have all these religious monuments and ceremonies. But the thing that ticks me is that it's all Christian. My philosophy is that if we are going to respect one religion in this way, we have to respect them all. And if we don't, then we should not respect any of them in this way.

In other words, if we are seeing Christian monuments and hearing Christian prayers on public property, then I want to see Jewish and Buddhist monuments, and hear Jewish and Buddhist prayers too. Otherwise we shouldn't be having them at all.

Heh, I am reminded of my History 1700 teacher Mr. Crane. He said the same thing. But I loved what he said. He said that if a Christian is able to give a public prayer; than a Satanist should be able to as well. And we should treat it the same way as we would with a Christian prayer. Heh. I found it rather humorous. You'd have to know Mr. Crane though. You'd have to know staunch, Mormon Mr. Crane to really understand the humor of this.

Anyway, the whole idea of public prayer and such just makes me uncomfortable. Because whenever I am at a place where it is done, I feel like I am forcing my beliefs on everyone else in the crowd.

Anyway, this is my first post here. Just something small. For kicks and giggles. I could have gone into a lot more. Could have gone into freedom of expression. Gone into individuality and issues of repression. But I hope you enjoyed. Even better, I hope you learned something. No, no I just hope you thought. Thought about something, about anything. I hope you agreed or disagreed. As long as you thought to reach your decision. After all, speech and talk and writing are wasted if you're not getting something from it.

So, again we "celebrate" another anniversary of the terrorist attack, and contrary to Bush's prospections, we're still alive and in no dire need of duct tape. The world has not ended, and the terrorists are still winning, partially because the world hasn't gone kaboom and partially because they haven't been apprehended.

The Patriot Act is in full force, which irritates me to no end. How can we live in a world free from terror when our freedom of speech is so readily ripped away from us when we say something someone doesn't want us to? I can see why we need it, but even so, I can more readily see how easy the power the Patriot Act grants can be abused and things can escalate. I'd much rather have some guy in a turban hate me and threaten me for the country I came from than be sent off to jail and my mouth figuratively duct taped because I said the wrong thing on the wrong website.

By having such things force us to unify under the ideology of the kind-of elected leader of our country, that makes "terrorists" hate us more.

So instead of getting angry about how many US troops are getting killed in Iraq, why not just withdraw them? War against little tanned men you can't see is hard, and fighting them because they attacked us for things that we did is even harder. This isn't War on Terror. It's just war.

Rating: Rating something like this would be absolutely fucking morbid.

9/11/04 03:17 pm - metalgarurumon - Off the chest (Jason's rant on 09/11/2004 @ 04:43)

Well, it's generally a good idea, when ranting... to organize it in such a way that it increases it's effectiveness. Though there was a gross lack of paragraphing throughout the entire rant, I felt that it was a good solid case for the credits of Lamb Chop on every public television station everywhere.

There's nothing better than a well-thought out rant. Only rambling-on-incessantly rants can make par.

Er. It seems the communities I'm modding are stagnating.

Did you just see a movie? At least rate it. Did you read a book? How boring and pointless was it?

Freaking do something, please.

God Mod Anonymous,

Think you're fucking_elite? We'll be the judges of that.

8/25/04 12:18 pm - metalgarurumon - (Fight Club)

As we have a total of five posts, I decided that I would show you all what the community is used for.

Fight Club is one of the greatest literary works of OUR generation, considering that Chuck Palanhiuk is actually part of the last generation... yeah... uh...

Anyway, Fight Club embraces the want within us all to be free of the chains society ropes around us and our same inability to finally be released. The narrator remains unnamed. The only person in the book who knows his name is killed by a bomb created and planted when Tyler inhabits the narrator's body and blows up his job.

The quandry of the one person of Tyler and the narrator of the story presents a very Nieztschean concept: that in order to free ourselves of the one-tracked doomedness of life, we have to evolve. For Nietzsche, it was man (mensch) to overman (uebermensch), for Palanhiuk it is Narrator to Tyler.

Anyway, I'll stop rambliing.
