Right on. Hollywood Undead is solid, they give me a ICP vibe, just a little more thought provoking. What genres do you really get into?
User avatar
#231 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
I listen to just about everything, but for some reason I can't stand hard rock, and any form of metal makes me want to drown myself.
I like orchestral, dubstep, jazz, indie rock, indie rap, blues, a lot of shit. Although I'm really picky, there's only a few artists that I like in each genre.

I'd rather listen to a song I hate then a song I don't like or dislike, because with music I don't like I can at least think about how much I don't like it. With songs I don't care either way about all I can think of is "is it over soon?" I'd rather listen to lil wayne for four hours, who I think is complete shit, then listen to peal jam for four hours, because their music is okay, but I don't care for it either way.
What about you?

#237 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
Same here, not a lot I don't listen to. Indie, folk, punk, electronic, post-rock, jazz, psychadelic, metal, hardcore, etc. Anything that speaks the truth, is pleasant to my ears, and cuts deep.

I see what you're saying about metal but its a facet of music thats totally under appreciated. I see the spectrum of music as being similar to the spectrum of emotion. Whereas jazz embodies joy and upbeat attitudes, metal is the darker side of the human psyche, you know?
User avatar
#239 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, I can understand the emotional draw towards it, it's just that hearing it annoys me, partly because I don't understand what they're saying, partly because I don't like heavy guitar.

I feel you. Its not for everyone but the reason I love it is it opened my eyes, not only to music but to life. It gets you to question what you think you know, which a lot of people today could use. But if you don't like heavy guitar, I'd recommend post-rock. Some good bands are Russian Circles, Caspian, Explosions in the Sky, God is an Astronaut, etc. Killer genre, usually instrumental and thoughtful and chill. Good for zenning out and contemplating your life.

#249 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
That's good to hear. Russian Circles, I've seen live but they have a bit more heaviness to them. Whats cool about them though, is the heaviness comes purely from the rythym section. Bass is pure tone and the drummer is a madhouse. I got to meet him and shake his hand and got one of their albums signed. Not a bad gig.

Katanas are more like sharp steel bars than longswords because how badly balanced they are.

There's no reason not to be, really. People might misunderstand that statement and assume I'm saying tumblr's perfect, but people just see tumblr screenshots and not like the way people talk in it, and assume tumblr's fucking retarded and there's no reason to go there, which is completely untrue.
You're not really forced to view any content there, it's all up to you what you look at, unlike here.
It all depends on who and what you follow.

#141 - angelusprimus (12/05/2013) [-]
ARRGH. Not again.
Longswords are most certainly NOT fucking sharp steel bars. I wish to god that bullshit idea dies already.
A longsword, real historical longsword only weights about 3lbs. Its a precision instrument not a fucking sharp mace. It was designed to cut cleanly through the unarmored joints, and then reinforced through the middle for penetration blows through the armor. It most certainly didn't shatter bone or jelly flesh. they were a CUTTING weapon.
*slams head on the keyboard repetedly*
Just go and read this, please:

Nobody's saying anything about longswords being a brute weapon, friend.
User avatar
#146 - angelusprimus (12/05/2013) [-]
"They shatter bone, jelly flesh, and essentially fuck people up by sheer inexorable force of being a goddamn sharp steel bar. "
This entire passage is completely wrong, and does not, at all, describe usage of the longsword.
Now norman broadsword, maybe. But that is a very different pair of socks.
User avatar
#151 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
It's just saying longswords are deadly. Steel bars aren't heavy. The sheer force thing is referring to the fact that if you swing it properly you can do a lot of damage.
User avatar
#153 - angelusprimus (12/05/2013) [-]
Shatter bone, jelly flesh.
That is BLUNT force trauma. And longsword does not produce that type of damage.
User avatar
#155 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
I really don't think anybody thinks that swords do blunt force trauma, I'm not sure why you think that's a common thing that people believe.
I'm pretty sure if somebody cuts clean through my leg it'll shatter the bone.
User avatar
#158 - angelusprimus (12/05/2013) [-]
It will not cut through your leg, it will stop at the bone. Maybe with few more strokes it will cut through, but in a way butcher's cleaver cuts through it won't shatter anything.
There used to be videos online with people practicing with pig carcasses, even armored ones. Its very educational.
User avatar
#161 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
It can. It depends on the blade itself, where it hits, and who's swinging it.
User avatar
#164 - angelusprimus (12/05/2013) [-]
In eleven years with arma I have yet to see someone do a clean cut through a pig.
And some of the dudes are fucking huge. If you add to that armor, there is no chance.
User avatar
#228 - nightmaren (12/06/2013) [-]
There's a difference between cutting through a pig and a limb. I know it has been done and I know it can be done, even if it isn't common.
And cutting through a limb after several blows is still cutting through a limb.

The thing about rap is it's completely ruined by the thug image. I'm not gonna waste a second of my life hearing some paid poser rap about getting money, poppin' off rounds, gettin hoes, blah, blah, no matter how fast or intricate his rhymes are. That's not talent, thats showboating.

The thing I appreciate about Pink Floyd is they're deep dudes and they didn't let anyone tell them what to play. Plus a little something called originality goes a long way.
User avatar
#217 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
Yes, because the only rappers in the world are Lil Wayne, 50 cent, Drake, Nikki Minaj, and any mainstream other rapper you hear on the radio.
Not to sound like a hipster elitist, but just about no music you hear on the radio today that's mainstream will have any sort of originality, and if you're going to base an entire genre off of what you've heard on the radio, then you shouldn't be arguing about music.

I'm not saying G-eazy is 'better' and that's what everyone should listen to, like OP of this thread is. I just like him more, because I prefer the way it sounds. If I were to acknowledge talent, I don't think anybody would argue that Pink Floyd is less talented. Like I said, I couldn't give any fucks less about 'talent'.

Although the fact that you don't even know who G-eazy is and you're just essentially writing him off as basically not even in the same ball park as them simply because he's a rapper is fucking bullshit. Anybody who says rap takes no talent or soul or anything like that is a cunt.

I don't give a shit about his opinion on the beetles. I don't even like them that much. But when somebody says "stop praising the beetles and listen to led zeppelin", then they can go fuck themselves. I don't give a fuck how 'revolutionary' a band is, if I like the way their songs sounds, I'll listen to it. End of story.
I don't turn on the radio to just sit and bask in how much talent artists have, like "OH MY GOD. SO MUCH TALENT. THEYRE SO MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME. ILL NEVER OBTAIN THIS KIND OF GENIUS. UGH MY COCK IS SO HARD BECAUSE OF ALL THS TALENT", because that's fucking pathetic.
I'm not going to listen to any of the bands he mentioned, because I personally think they all sound like shit. I'm not trying to say they're bad, I just don't like the sound off their music at all, and if somebody thinks I'm obligated to like them because they're 'revolutionary', I'm going to tell them to fuck off, sit back, and turn up my G-Eazy.

I'm pretty sure he was trolling but what you said was even more ignorant and offensive. Sad state this site is in.
User avatar
#201 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
I don't think he was trolling. People post comments like that all the time, it's a real opinion and I can see where they're coming from. The only thing I'd say is trolling is "beetles are the fathers of justin bieber"
Sorry if I somehow offended you by saying I don't like Led Zeppelin.
User avatar
#203 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh, no it wasn't that. Led Zep was awesome but I wouldn't say revolutionary. The fact you propped up what I assume is a rapper over Pink Floyd and Yes. Two of my personal faves. But I respect your musical opinion regardless.
User avatar
#204 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
I'm not saying G-eazy is 'better' and that's what everyone should listen to, like OP of this thread is. I just like him more, because I prefer the way it sounds. If I were to acknowledge talent, I don't think anybody would argue that Pink Floyd is less talented. Like I said, I couldn't give any fucks less about 'talent'.

Although the fact that you don't even know who G-eazy is and you're just essentially writing him off as basically not even in the same ball park as them simply because he's a rapper is fucking bullshit. Anybody who says rap takes no talent or soul or anything like that is a cunt.

The thing about rap is it's completely ruined by the thug image. I'm not gonna waste a second of my life hearing some paid poser rap about getting money, poppin' off rounds, gettin hoes, blah, blah, no matter how fast or intricate his rhymes are. That's not talent, thats showboating.

The thing I appreciate about Pink Floyd is they're deep dudes and they didn't let anyone tell them what to play. Plus a little something called originality goes a long way.
User avatar
#217 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
Yes, because the only rappers in the world are Lil Wayne, 50 cent, Drake, Nikki Minaj, and any mainstream other rapper you hear on the radio.
Not to sound like a hipster elitist, but just about no music you hear on the radio today that's mainstream will have any sort of originality, and if you're going to base an entire genre off of what you've heard on the radio, then you shouldn't be arguing about music.
User avatar
#221 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
Believe me, i get the point you're making. I can't stand the radio and I'm a hipster when it comes to music I like too. The more obscure the better. I never said I was a rap expert, I just said that mentality isn't something I look for in general. But I hear you and I'm going to expand my musical library by one more genre. Got any reccomendations other than this G-eazy?
User avatar
#224 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
Hopsin, Kid Cudi, Skizzy Mars, Classified, Macklemore, Hollywood Undead (Hollywood Undead's my favourite band, they're more rock than rap though). That's about all I got for rap, I don't really listen to it a lot, there's just a small amount of rappers that I like, but I like a lot.
User avatar
#228 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
Right on. Hollywood Undead is solid, they give me a ICP vibe, just a little more thought provoking. What genres do you really get into?
User avatar
#231 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
I listen to just about everything, but for some reason I can't stand hard rock, and any form of metal makes me want to drown myself.
I like orchestral, dubstep, jazz, indie rock, indie rap, blues, a lot of shit. Although I'm really picky, there's only a few artists that I like in each genre.

I'd rather listen to a song I hate then a song I don't like or dislike, because with music I don't like I can at least think about how much I don't like it. With songs I don't care either way about all I can think of is "is it over soon?" I'd rather listen to lil wayne for four hours, who I think is complete shit, then listen to peal jam for four hours, because their music is okay, but I don't care for it either way.
What about you?
User avatar
#237 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
Same here, not a lot I don't listen to. Indie, folk, punk, electronic, post-rock, jazz, psychadelic, metal, hardcore, etc. Anything that speaks the truth, is pleasant to my ears, and cuts deep.

I see what you're saying about metal but its a facet of music thats totally under appreciated. I see the spectrum of music as being similar to the spectrum of emotion. Whereas jazz embodies joy and upbeat attitudes, metal is the darker side of the human psyche, you know?
User avatar
#239 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
Yeah, I can understand the emotional draw towards it, it's just that hearing it annoys me, partly because I don't understand what they're saying, partly because I don't like heavy guitar.
User avatar
#241 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
I feel you. Its not for everyone but the reason I love it is it opened my eyes, not only to music but to life. It gets you to question what you think you know, which a lot of people today could use. But if you don't like heavy guitar, I'd recommend post-rock. Some good bands are Russian Circles, Caspian, Explosions in the Sky, God is an Astronaut, etc. Killer genre, usually instrumental and thoughtful and chill. Good for zenning out and contemplating your life.
User avatar
#244 - nightmaren (12/05/2013) [-]
I'm listening to a bit of Caspian right now. It's really chill, I love it.
User avatar
#249 - cityofechoes (12/05/2013) [-]
That's good to hear. Russian Circles, I've seen live but they have a bit more heaviness to them. Whats cool about them though, is the heaviness comes purely from the rythym section. Bass is pure tone and the drummer is a madhouse. I got to meet him and shake his hand and got one of their albums signed. Not a bad gig.
