// RANDOM DEADBOY/DAX RIGGS VIDEOS
Found some random Dax Riggs (Acid Bath/Agents of Oblivion/Deadboy & The Elephantmen)
The first one looks like and old video while the second one looks like it was recorded at the Henry Rollins Show. (?)
Record label gone blogA blog. We'll see what ends up here. Probably a lot of death.
(Godflesh) felt really counterproductive after a while; with Jesu it's like it mirrors my personality much more. It's way more sensitive sounding music which is the person I always was, always have been, but Godflesh for me, I say repeatedly, was a complete defense mechanism for basically a person who is extremely frail, hypersensitive and scared of the world around me...
After a long absence, The Eye returns with a rare opportunity to sit down for a one-on-one conversation with Justin K. Broadrick. Justin talks about his roots in Napalm Death through Head of David, Godflesh, Final, and now Jesu; post-punk post-metal and the love of harmonies; and how nobody should ever expect a Godflesh reunion...ever!
The other leader who had a gift for reading into people told me afterwards that he saw my heart swollen, huge, like it was ready to burst. He asked me to think about anything in my life that I needed to let go of or deal with. I was actually in the extremely intense, painful, and drawn-out process of breaking up with my girlfriend of several years. For the other guy, he said he saw a large insect-like being clinging to his head, holding on, talking to him. The leader talked with the insect to find out what he wanted. The insect said he was telling him what he needed to know. The leader told the insect to leave because we couldn't control him. The insect left and our friend became even more frenzied, so he called the insect back to calm him down, which eventually happened.
In computer graphics and photography, high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) is a set of techniques that allow a far greater dynamic range of exposures (i.e. a large difference between light and dark areas) than normal digital imaging techniques. The intention of HDRI is to accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes ranging from direct sunlight to the deepest shadows.
From Britannica, “[Joseph Campbell was a] prolific American author and editor whose works on comparative mythology examined the universal functions of mythology in various human cultures and examined the mythic figure in a wide range of literatures.” - source
He left the Ph.D. program at Columbia University for “self-imposed exile”. He studied for five years in the woods–reading 9 hours each day.
Chances are you have never heard of the neural code. And yet, from both a practical and philosophical perspective, the neural code is the most important remaining scientific mystery.
The immediate goal of many neural-code researchers is producing “neural prostheses” for the disabled. By far the most successful neural prosthesis is the artificial cochlea. More than 80,000 people have been equipped with these devices, which restore at least rudimentary hearing by feeding signals from an external microphone to the auditory nerve. Work on other prostheses is proceeding more slowly. Artificial retinas, light-sensitive chips that mimic the eye’s signal-processing ability and stimulate the optical nerve or visual cortex, have been tested in a handful of blind subjects, but they usually “see” nothing more than phosphenes, or bright spots.
