Bonnie Tyler - Total Eclipse of the Heart

Nothing because my Ipod died, right after I bought a new Nick Cave album.

RIP my ipod

Sorry to hear it. Here's a youtubeized (with lots of deletes) version of an old Nick Cave album I recently bought.

Mutiny in heaven is blocked here. I guess there are no rats in paradise.

As much as I preach education and tolerance over violence on these boards, it is incredibly hard to keep a level head when somebody is personally insulting you, your friends, and impersonally insulting Muslims and LGBT people.

Yes, yes it is. I've been struggling with this, and I've decided (for me) it is better to be alive and angry all the time, than alive and afraid all the time, or dead.


Right now
Muse - Resistance
Just kind of where I'm at right now.


*Warning: Extreme prog metal ahead*

Opeth - Ghost Reveries -and-
Ayreon 01011001
Disc 1: Y
Disc 2: Earth
Basically, my (metaphorical) security blankets for when the world is big and scary, and I don't quite understand what is happening.


Penne, hot sausage, onions, and green, yellow, and red peppers covered with a cream and tomato sauce. It was fabulous, which is good, 'cause there's enough left over to feed a small army.

1% of the current presidential term down

Small progress, yes... but it shows that this madness is finite. Keep counting the days until the inevitable rallying cry of the next campaign;

'Donald Trump. You're fired!'

I'm sorry, but I don't think for a second that he's going to leave peacefully. He's already moving to establish authoritarian control, and the only way he's leaving is by being kicked out. Probably violently, but I hope just legally.

Edit: It's possible this is just me being hopeless and paranoid. I did say I didn't much like what this is doing to me.

Persona 5 music

There's a Persona 5? When did that happen?


I was actually contemplating checking out. Not solely from despair/lack of hope, but more so from how the despair is changing me.
If the last week is any indicator, I'm really going to hate myself in a few years. Anyway, I'm still here. How is everyone else doing?


I'll take a hug.
On edge and fraying, I'm convinced [REDACTED TO AVOID TRIGGERING] that very, very bad things are coming for those of us in the US.

Definitely need one. One of my dogs died yesterday after a months-long struggle with kidney disease.

The Clash - Stay Free

Favoriting even though that particular video of "Stay Free" is unavailable in my country on copyright grounds.

Oddly enough, other videos of the same song aren't.

Ditto


I just have to say that this is the only place I've ever met anybody else who appreciates Peter Hammill/Van Der Graaf Generator.

They have a new one out this year, but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

I rather liked it. I thought it sounded a bit like Eloy, in places.

Right now, Worlds Within Worlds - Basil Kirchin

EDIT: 'YMCA' in Finnish

I love Eloy! For some reason Dawn isn't on Spotify, so now: Eloy - Ocean.

The meaning of life is to give life meaning.

I disagree completely.

The meaning of life is to learn.
Every generation builds knowledge and uses that knowledge to give the next generation a boost. Exchanging ideas on a global electronic forum is just the latest boost, we will learn more. It IS what life strives to do. It IS what gives it meaning. We learn how to be moral and improve cooperation, We learn how to build better and better tools and improve productivity, We learn... ALL the things!

You disagree, and then you give a meaning? The only difference here is that you expect everyone else to agree to YOUR meaning.

I'd like to think all the rules arguments we've seen on the forums proves that.

Blackmore's Night Winter Carols
I know a lot of people are like "what the #$%^, Ritchie Blackmore?" but I like his pop-folk stuff better than, say, mid-eighties Rainbow.

I think it was module B4, I know it was BECMI. We were 3rd level, and fighting a giant, slimy, horned demi-god-thing in the bottom of an Octahedron-shaped dungeon. Good times.

I remember someone who reacted badly to the group name "Black Lives Matter" with the retort "All Lives Matter" The reply was given that if that statement were actually true, there would be no need for the group at all.

It's called a feminist movement, because whether we want to admit it or not, on the bulk of this planet women are still in a secondary status to men. In the US it comes in the form of things such as glass ceilings or criminialisng aspects of life which are uniquely female.. such as a woman whom today was sentenced to concurrent terms of 30 years (10 suspended) for endangering a dependent) and 10 years for feticide because of a miscarriage. In other countries, women are killed by their families for staining their honor by being raped.

Yes, patriarchy does do damage to men, but on the whole, it's women who are being kept on the wrong side of the boot,so that's why it's a feminist movement. And yes, men can be feminists too... all of the best ones are.

Indiana, right? Already famous for their poorly-thought-out bathroom bill?

I would think "feminist" would be better suited as a term for folks who, despite being in favor of equality on all fronts, are focusing their own efforts specifically on the gender issue. For a person/group that tries to spread its efforts equally among multiple aspects of equality (gender, race, orientation/identity, economic status, age, etc), I would think "feminist" would be a misleading term to use. What do you think?
Most (modern) feminists do actually espouse equality, and combat oppression across multiple axis. There are some radical feminists who don't believe in gender and orientation/identity equality, but they are becoming scarcer.
I wasn't talking about belief, but of the main thrust of one's actions. For example, take three people: all three believe in equality of all sorts. One of them devotes their time to engaging gender inequality issues, another spends time focusing on racial equality, while the third tries to help even things out across economic lines. They're all supportive of each others' work and ideals, but each only has time to regularly take action on a single front, and they've each chosen a different field to devote their limited time to. Referring to all three of them as "feminists" seems misleading to me. That's all I was saying.

I don't think it's that cut and dried. In the feminist circle I've been a part of, no more than 50% of time and effort has been spent on actual gender equality issues. The rest has been spent on intersectionality with racism, classism, etc. I actually entered feminist circles through LGBT activism, and that is still my "main thrust". If do not think that calling myself a feminist would be misleading.

The most surprising experience I've had was when a gamer brought his aged Chinese parents to the gaming table, between them we're talking about 140-160 years of age. For them their first experience was in playing the Second We Be Goblins! module. I've yet to see two people jump into it more like fish into water.

That is made of awesome! I've gamed with many, many different people, but never with anybody more than a few years older than me.

There are other games that probably do that sort of setting better than D&D/PF - Ars Magica and Runequest leap to mind as obvious choices.

(That's before you start arguing that "Medieval" in classic fantasy is completely ahistorical anyway, and medieval Europe was a much more sophisticated society than baseline D&D made it out to be.)

Runequest can be used for "classic (medieval-ish) fantasy", but it's more geared toward bronze-age city-states.

As to the OP: Yes. It is dead. May it rest in peace. Now on with the new!


My partner's mother is making fajitas. Mmmm.
