Rest in peace? This site is still plenty usable my friend.

Yeah, I'm thinking I shouldn't have had internet access when I was 8.

Luigison, I like that you're onto something. It would just warm my heart if we somehow finished this series.


Not at the Dinner Table / Current social/political climate
« on: August 16, 2018, 10:49:09 PM »
Can't help but notice that the current social/political climate is pretty ****ing grim and divisive. Everybody's at each-other's throats at all times, and it seems like people are moving further towards polarization. I think that, even given TMK's generally meager forum population as of late, this is why this sub-board hasn't been posted in since late 2016. Do other people find this significantly worrying, or is this just a rough patch that'll die down when Trump and his similar right-wing populist movements fade?

That makes me feel ****ing old. I mean, I was 8 when I first started coming on here, and now I'm 20.

To try and answer your question, the oldest threads remaining on the forums are from June 2000. As I understand it, TMK (the site as a whole, not just the forum) has been around since at least 1999, though not always on this domain name.

Wow, it's been taking forever. Computer, how many years will it take us at this rate?


Oh. Oh dear.

Will you be starring them and adding them to the OP list?

Two progressive metal concept/thematic albums, both of which I brought up in a recent college essay, are Voivod's Dimension Hatröss and Toxik's Think This.

Dimension Hatröss is musically very technical and angular, and lyrically tells a sci-fi story about an entity (who appears on the covers of Voivod's first five albums in different forms) who creates his own dimension with a particle accelerator, only to discover that it's fraught with similar social divisions and conflicts to the world he comes from. Ultimately, he gets into battles with other psychic beings and ends up escaping from the world of his own creation before deeming it a failed experiment and destroying it. Think This is musically more straightforward, but still complex in places. It's less of a "story" type concept album and more a thematic piece. Almost all the songs are themed around various social problems, but with an emphasis on how mass media (in 1989, that would be TV and radio) helps exacerbate these problems. Owing to that, there are a couple songs directly about TV, and nearly every song begins with a sample of a radio or TV broadcast, usually an advertisement but sometimes a speech from a religious leader or politician. Full of Reagan-era countercultural rage; even the album cover is pure 80s.

Going in a completely different direction musically, there's A Crow Looked at Me and its recent sequel Now Only, two incredibly sad folkish albums from Mount Eerie, a project of Phil Everum (formerly of The Microphones). They'll hit you like a ton of bricks. To make it short, Phil's wife died a year after being diagnosed with cancer, and those two albums are themed around his grief over her passing (as well as meditations on death in general), with A Crow Looked at Me being particularly heartwrenching since it was entirely written mere months after her passing.

It's always nice seeing blasts from the past such as this.

That theme song is really something, and they snuck 25m from Donkey Kong (arcade) in there too.

This is the ideal male body. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.
