  1. And I don't think there are many metal fans in here, but just in case - this was on before the Aphex Twin. It's a 83 minute long song, so maybe get a snack and some coffee. It was mostly written by the band after the loss of their drummer to alcoholism, and it really captures some of the raw feelings of that even without the lyrics being intelligible for the first bit. Really moving live - lucky enough to have seen it twice.

    I can't take a full album of this sort of stuff...but Japanese punk singer Margaret Take has probably the most extreme female vocals I've heard

     

    Wow! Definitely the most underground thing I'm going to hear today. I'll offer up Lingua Ignota as competition - most of her singing is actually clean, but she has her moments of raw rage as well. This song is off Caligula, which she wrote as an exercise in self-therapy when recovering from an abusive relationship.  Women definitely aren't stuck in soothing all the time. :)

    In terms of male vs female voices I'm pretty sure I don't really have a preference, but your options are pretty limited in the more extreme genres, which tend to be pretty male-dominated.

    (If anyone listens to this be aware the volume completely skyrockets about 60 seconds into the song.)

    I'm starting to wonder if it's me getting older or if it's music losing something these days?  Or does the past just lose the filler stuff and combine the goodies?

    Maybe  it's that we have so many more options now and the field is flooded?

    I think maybe it's that..

    I think maybe it's that and the fact that when we're teens, we've got this chaotic pile of emotions running through us that make some things like music hit us even harder than normal. You might hit on other music you like now, but you've got a million other things going; music from your teens is a bit like your first love, maybe?

    Also yes to there being so many options now!

    Anyway, some mellow Sunday afternoon listening:

  4. Two things I've learned from this song - firstly, when you're in the office it's a good idea to make sure your laptop is paired to your headphones and not the office speakers before you press play and crank the volume, and secondly my co-workers don't like Abyssal. 😅

    it also meant that SL lost its appeal as a wide open, lawless frontier town where anything could and did happen.

    I know it's easy to romanticise it when you weren't there dealing with the griefers, etc, but I think I was hoping for a bit more of this when I joined.

    I heartily approve of cats, though I don't care much for popcorn because of the bits that get stuck in my teeth

    Seriously - do popcorn lovers not have this problem? I always get that thin shell stuff wedged between my gums and my teeth - drives me nuts. I can endorse this popcorn though:

    We are not a perfect country but I doubt you'd have it as good anywhere else in the world, but good luck finding it in either case. We all deserve to be happy. 

    There's loads of indices of the best countries to live in measured a variety of ways, and the USA doesn't come out top in any of them. That isn't to say that the USA is terrible, but I'm always amazed when I hear people declare it can't possibly be better anywhere else.

    New topic by a new forum user that mentions the often contentious subject of cheating in SL and how it relates to RL -- and the OP never returns for any other comments in the 13 hours that the thread has been open.

    Yep, likely trolling

     

    Imagine the shame - you come here to troll, and all you do is start a reasonable and mature conversation about trust in SL and RL. 😄

  9. Neglected this when I joined! Signed up because I was curious to know what Second Life was actually like, and now I spend my time either exploring some of the amazing places people have built, or shopping. Is it just me, or is at least part of the fun of this game being an adult and playing with really good dolls? 

    Not sure what to say about interests; I love music, and I listen to a load of genres, so my spotify just went from Kate Bush to Portal (death metal) and then off to Blanck Mass. Not musically trained, but love the emotions of just about everything as long as it sounds like the band cares about something. Also enjoy scary movies, catty standup comedy like Dylan Moran, and documentaries. 

    Finding I'm not meeting a lot of people apart from dudebros who hit on me (shout out to the married Australian guy who said he was just trying to have some fun - what a pickup conversation that was), but I guess I'm really just here to explore.
