I prefer my doom slightly less funereal and slightly more...well, less lugubrious, but after reading that Atramentus description, I'm all in.

Never thought I'd live to say the day when MDB and Paradise Lost were described as "twee" :)

Which is to say: I don't have any easy answers either. When in doubt, I just go with my gut.

If it looks like a racist, swims like a racist, and quacks like a racist, then it probably is a racist.

Hails to my fellow Black Marketers (specifically Reverend Weird and blimp_juice) for helping to shut that fool down. Well done, team \m/

July 3, 2020 on Hear Jason Isbell’s Demo For “Maybe It’s Time” From A Star Is Born
1. Conway/Alchemist - LULU 2. RTJ4 3. Conway/Big Ghost - No One Mourns The Wicked That’s all I’ve got so far. It’s admittedly been a slow year for the kind of rap I like (best described as “sounds like it was made at D&D Studios in 1994”)

July 1, 2020 on Lil Baby & 42 Dugg’s “We Paid” Is The Summer Anthem We Need
That’s a lot to take in, but there’s at least one thing I can say to begin with: welcome to the commentariat!

OK, well, I suppose it’s not really surprising that you would disagree with BLM when you’ve so obviously missed the point. No one’s saying that ONLY black lives matter - it’s that black people (around the world, but especially in the States) have spent 400 years being told, explicitly and otherwise, that their lives DON’T matter. And now they’re fighting back against that. If you have a problem with that, well, tough. (And BTW, “I have friends on the force [i.e. one of the most historically racist institutions] who don’t buy the systemic racism part” is most definitely not helping your argument). Anyway, not interested in going around in circles with you anymore either. Keep flying that “BLM is racist” flag if you insist, it’s a free country, although I’d admittedly prefer that you do it somewhere else.

Yeah, I know you’re right, but damn, it’s hard sometimes.

BTW there's an All Lives Matter idiot over in the Black Market comment section spouting anti-BLM nonsense, anyone who wants to pop over there and help us set them straight, feel free.

Dr. King's son would disagree with you BTW: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/30/us/politics/martin-luther-king-protest-blm.html And so would his daughter: https://twitter.com/BerniceKing/status/1277976822513164289?s=20

If you're seriously invoking Martin Luther King to argue against BLM, I don't even know what to tell you. But hey, any excuse to keep blowing that "all lives matter" dogwhistle - conveniently ignoring that "all lives" aren't the ones who've had to deal with 400 years of systemic racism, but that's just a minor detail, right? Anyway, you've had your chance to make your argument - believe that nonsense if you will, but if you're expecting anyone here to fall for it, you've got another thing coming.

Right, we should "pay attention" and "go out on the streets", where there are only masses of people worldwide protesting in support of BLM. But hey, you've seen dozens of these - and on Fox News, no less! - so I guess I'm all turned around on the subject.

"Plenty of black people have spoken against Black Lives Matter"? I suppose if the New York Post is your go-to news source you might believe that (along with "antifa is a terrorist organization funded by George Soros" and "there were very fine people on both sides in Charlottesville"); doesn't make it any less wrong. Black lives matter, period, there isn't anything to debate.

"TAGS: Aseitas, Chepang, Fellwarden, Förfallet, Lantern, Moonknight, Mystras, Paysage d'Hiver, Pyrrhon, Thætas, Xazraug" Chew on THAT, Google Translate.

I have to admit that I probably never would have listened to Pyrrhon if it wasn't for the Doug connection. They're much more "out there" than my tastes usually allow for (as we've well established by this point, I'm basic). But the level of talent/craft/dedication that clearly went into making Abscess Time is frankly amazing. Definitely one of those "study the lyrics sheet while you're listening" albums, for one thing. (Also, I can't wait for my CD/shirt bundle to arrive, so I can see the look on my wife's face the first time she sees me wearing it!)

I went with the Stooges one, just like the look of it best. Will probably spring for a metal one too though, just on general principles.
