I've read the lyrics of the first four Watain albums, heard them multiple times, as well as the material provided by Dissection. Kept it spinning for quite a while. I've also read all the interviews and stuff the MLO/TBL made public as well as into the Liber Falxifer. Eventually I came to the conclusion that it's all one-dimensional crap and I've wasted a lot of time and energy. Those miserable assholes take their esoteric pseudo-witchcraft bullshit idiology way to serious and therefore I can't respect them (and starving oneself for it neither). I know enough 'bout it to know that it's worth rejecting.
And I don't get what people expect of worshipping negative concepts. It's more than awareness and seems pretty dumb to me.
Don't really know what to say 'bout the Placebo video, 'xept here it is in full length and better quality: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7bxXjQL3cY
I know some will refuse to watch these vids after hearing what beats are played in these vids, but I find them very interesting and well done.
At many a time people disgust me.
Here some can be seen sitting at a beach, laughin' and basically having a good day at a beach, watching an ill elephant drowning while her owner (it's her owner; he belongs to the circus Renz) walks and jumps on her back and finally presses her head under water:
I just found two pictures I drew in kindergarten and elementary school. The earlier one depicts two blue fat aliens hugging each other. The later one shows a cthuloid monster with claws, horns, tentacles, multiple eyes and morey eels on its head, all in radiant psychedelic colours. They are horribly drawn too.
They're ignorant of the cultures of whose elements they assemble their mythology. They just take whatever fits their believes in some ill-interpreted way with little interest in cultural contexts. I call that ignorant.
If it's just like an artful collage one might say it's tasteless, but in my eyes it'd be okay. But those fools seem to really swallow their own bullshit. I can't see any other reasons exept wanting to shock even societies that are overfed with and dulled by entertainment or, as I previously suggested: chicks.
The TBL/MLO is really ignorant. They say they believe to find gnosis in assembling all the grim and evil elements of mythologies all over the world. Why do they try so hard to be villainous? I think it's all about chicks.
Dave Lepard included Watain 'n Evil Erik in his thanks section of Rest in Sleaze.
If he doesn't deny to use christian terminology it's no contradiction.
All those neopaganist movements/religions are very incoherent mixtures of various widespread romantizised supposedly "old" beliefs. They shouldn't be taken too serious. There is actually very few known about prechristian european cultures, too few to reconstruct them properly.
Watain do impressive pyro-shows with detailed stage outfits, but appart from that they're pretty hollow.
I like how that Sällskapet vid takes its time to build the athmosphere.
Haha, I remember having seen a great share of beautiful musicvideos, but I can't force them back into my mind. I really do like the long camera walk in this one, tho:
I've an acute ear. Will have it checked on monday. Every sound is galling, loud ones even painfull.
I hope it'll be succesful.
we had a cold winter so there's probably a rainy summer comming. : Hate that never-ending April too.
