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. (?)


Ok, seriously. This band is so good it's unbelievable. PERFECT sleeping music. I bet I would have good dreams every night I listened to this.

So my band of the moment right now, I don't even have time to check out other bands Raymond gave me:

-Ben Frost, Frost, School of Emotional Engineering
-Julian Fane

Cephalic Carnage coined their own term for their music, Rocky Mountain HydroGrind. They blend death metal, doom metal, sludge metal, grindcore, jazz and experimental music into their own unique sound.

SGM's music can be roughly likened as something akin to avant-rock or avant-prog, but it practically escapes any rigorous categorization so that people usually have to name-drop different kinds of bands in order to give some sort of scope or conception of what they sound like. Some names that have come up in reviewers' texts include Mr. Bungle, Thinking Plague, Univers Zéro, White Zombie, Änglagård, King Crimson, and so on;

So Dr. Martens, the shoe/boot company "hired" this advertising agency (SAATCHI & SAATCHI) to do some ads for them. S&S made up these images featuring Kurt Cobain, Joey Strummer, Sid Vicious and Joey Ramone in heaven wearing Dr. Marten boots (images below). Dr. Martens CEO David Suddens was quoted saying "We said no. It was creative that was put to us, but we didn’t like it. It doesn’t represent the company at all." But then S&S apparently released the images saying "We believe the ads are edgy but not offensive. There has been blog commentary both for and against the ads, but it is our belief that they are respectful of both the musicians and the Dr. Martens brand." Dr. Martens then responded by doing a press release saying "Dr Martens is very sorry..." "Dr Martens did not commission the work..." and "Dr Martens has terminated its relationship with the responsible agency."

Smells like a case of viral marketing to me. Remember when Nike released the "Major Threat" campaign ripping off the Minor Threat album cover then later apologizing after everyone and their dog was in an outrage and were threatened to be sued by Discord Records? Well it worked out nicely for Nike. A whole shitstorm went across the internet in hours, and everyone saw the Nike name. That's exactly what they wanted to happen, and mostly likely that exactly how they predicted it to happen.

This Dr. Martens situation is the same thing. Dr. Martens went to an advertising company, said "you guys make up these ads, release them, then we'll "fire" you so we don't get blamed, but you'll still get your check, plus a little more to make up for making your company look bad to the public eye."

Why would this advertising company release these images? It does not benefit them as a company whatsoever. It would make them look bad because they're breaking a client (a strong client I might add) relationship. It would however look good on Dr. Martans part saying "we had no idea! we fired their asses! we don't want anything to do with that!". Bullshit I say. A classic case of viral marketing. In the end, everyones happy. S&S got their check, Dr. Martans got their name out to a target audience in lightning speed, and the public calms down and is happy Dr. Martans had nothing to do with using their idols imagery and goes back to buying their shoes.


Part 2/3: Justin Broadrick/Jesu Interview by The Eye
(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...

This is a great documentary on The History Channel I saw last night after returning to Dallas from my brothers graduation in Lincoln, NE. He majored in Bio-Psychology! Congrats Ben!

I feel the documentary is very informing on the fact that many drugs weren't illegal or even looked down upon as recently as 100 years ago. And even more informing that marijuana has been long praised before it was criminalized in 1937.

So why did marijuana and other drugs become illegal? Here's part 1 of 5. I will be posting the other parts later this week.

Ok, weird...I found this article when searching for "new world order alcohol" to see if there was any evidence that "these people" (NWO people) want us to be drinking a lot etc.

But the first result I get is an article titled "Can you see where we fit in the new world order?" but makes no other references in the article about "New World Order".

Is this a tactic to slowly and carefully ease the term "New World Order" into our vocabulary so when it comes more to a head we the public feel more comfortable with the term?

Can you see where we fit in the new world order?

Thanks to my friend Kasi for pointing me to this interview. She must know i'm a huge J. Broadrick fan. There aren't to many video interviews on him I believe, so this is a good find. Thanks Kasi!

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!

Harmaline, 5-MeO-DMT & DMT
by Netrunner

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.

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.

I can honestly say that without cannabis, most of my scientific research would never have been done and most of my books on psychology and evolution would not have been written. Some evenings, after a long day at my desk, I'll slip into the bath, light a candle and a spliff, and let the ideas flow - that lecture I have to give to 500 people next week, that article I'm writing for New Scientist, those tricky last words of a book I've been working on for months. This is the time when the sentences seem to write themselves.

Marijuana Myths:Marijuana Facts - A Review of Scientific Evidence (Chapters)

Got my "Marijuana Myths:Marijuana Facts" book a few days ago. It's pretty good so far but I'm not enough into it to give a review yet.

But per a friends request (Kasi) here are the books chapters. 20 myths, 20 chapters.


"For each of these claims, we searched the scientific literature for relevant studies. Over and over, we discovered that government officials, journalists, and even many 'drug experts' had misinterpreted, misrepresented, or distorted the scientific evidence. Indeed, there was so little scientific support for the twenty claims analyzed in this book that we have called them 'myths.' Like all myths, these may contain a kernel of truth, but never more than that."

20 Myths About Marijuana
Marijuana Harms Have Been Proved Scientifically
Marijuana Has No Medicinal Value
Marijuana Is Highly Addictive
Marijuana Is a Gateway Drug

Poison The Well tour dates w/ The End

So Poison The Well is now back to an indie label (Ferret) and they're new stuff is supposed to be off the hook. I'm assuming they went back to an indie because the majors wouldn't give them enough "creative control".

Ok, cool, whatever, good for both of them. Ferret will make a killing. BUT here's what I do know. Thanks to my good friend/fellow DFW resident Kasi who burned me the unreleased tracks, PTW is awesome again and even better then before if I might say. The unreleased tracks are phenomenal. Take Deftones and give it a hardcore version of Neurosis build-ups. Great stuff. I hope their upcoming release doesn't hold back or compromise the quality of their music to "appeal to a bigger audience".

The End is also a great tech-metal band. They kind of came our pretty soon after Dillinger Escape Plan's "Calculating Infinity" album and were branded as a grind version of DEP from what I heard, and I'd agree to an extent.

Either way, they'd be worth seeing. They just released "Elementary" (Relapse) which also sounds good from the few tracks I've heard.

Jíxiánghùa! (or Happy Chinese New Year)

When I asked a work friend what she was doing for the weekend, she told me she is getting together with her parents and family to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I had no idea! So we looked into it, found our Chinese astrology signs (me a Rooster or Cock, ha! her a Monkey). I'd have to say they are pretty accurate. At least mine is...observant, brave, self-absorbed (me?! no...).

Anyways, I looked a little deeper so here is some interesting stuff I learned about the widely-celebrated-holiday happening on the other side of the world this weekend.


February 18, 2007 is the first day of the Chinese new year.

Chinese calendar has been in continuous use for centuries, which predates the International Calendar (based on the Gregorian Calendar) we use at the present day which goes back only some 425 years. The calendar measures time, from short durations of minutes and hours, to intervals of time measured in months, years and centuries, entirely based on the astronomical observations of the movement of the Sun, Moon and stars.

-2007 is known as the Year of the Pig (DingHai)
-Current year is Year 4704 by the Chinese calendar.
-Chinese New Year's Eve is known as Chúxì. Chu literally means "change" and xi means "eve".
-15 days are celebrated into the new year

The Chinese New Year is often accompanied by loud, enthusiastic greetings, often referred to as "Jíxiánghùa".

The Chinese Year celebrations are marked by visits to kin, relatives and friends, and the liberal use of the color red. Red packets are given to juniors and children by the married and elders.

According to legend, in ancient China, the nián, a man-eating beast from the mountains, could silently infiltrate houses to prey on humans. The people later learned that the nian was sensitive to loud noises and the color red, so they scared it away with explosions, fireworks and the liberal use of the color red. These customs led to the first New Year celebrations. Guò nián, which means to celebrate the new year, literally means the passing of the nian beast.

-Opening windows and/or doors is considered to 'bring in' the good luck of the new year.

-Buying shoes, pants, books and getting a hair-cut is all considered bad luck for different reasons.

Wiki: Unschooling

Unschooling is a form of education in which learning is based on the student's interests, needs, and goals. It may be alternatively referred to as natural learning, child-led learning, discovery learning, autodidactic learning, delight-led learning, or child-directed learning.

Unschoolers often believe that learning any specific subject is less important than learning 'how' to learn. They believe, in the words of Alec Bourne, "It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated,"...

Wiki: Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)

- A powerful psychoactive substance

Dimethyltryptamine (DMT), also known as N,N-dimethyltryptamine, not to be confused with 5-MeO-DMT, is a psychedelic tryptamine, similar in structure to the neurotransmitter serotonin. DMT is created in small amounts by the human body during normal metabolism[1] by the enzyme Tryptamine-N-methyltransferase.

It also occurs naturally in many species of plants. DMT-containing plants are used in several South American shamanic practices.

Hallucinogenic properties

DMT is a powerful psychoactive substance. If DMT is smoked, injected, or orally ingested with an MAOI, it can produce powerful entheogenic experiences including true hallucinations (perceived extensions of reality). A trip sitter is often employed to assist the drug user in staying physically and mentally healthy, and, in the case of smoked DMT, to catch the pipe when the user loses awareness of it.

Several speculative and as yet untested hypotheses suggest that endogenous DMT, produced in the human brain, is involved in certain psychological and neurological states. As DMT is naturally produced in small amounts in the brains and other tissues of humans, and other mammals[1], some believe it plays a role in promoting the visual effects of natural dreaming, near-death experiences and other mystical states. A biochemical mechanism for this was proposed by the medical researcher JC Callaway, who suggested in 1988 that DMT might be connected with visual dream phenomena, where brain DMT levels are periodically elevated to induce visual dreaming and possibly other natural states of mind.[7]

Several subjects also reported contact with 'other beings', alien like, insectoid and reptillian in nature, in technological environments[5] where the subjects were 'probed', 'tested' and sometimes even 'manipulated' by these 'beings'.

Mare calls it quits

Mare (HydraHead) has officially called it quits. Many saw this coming after a long wait to their follow up after their self-titled CD released in 2004 without any updates along the way, but are still quite disappointed.

Here is the official announcement taken from

Toronto's Mare has officially disbanded. The group released an EP with Hydra Head Records in 2004. Singer Tyler Semrick-Palmateer has released the following statement:

"We are officially done like dinner. We have been scheduled to write an album for a while now but nothing ever came of it. We (and I think that I speak for Caleb as well) have not been moved or inspired to write anything or put forth any real effort to maintain the Mare legacy. I'm sure that Caleb and I will be collaborating a bunch in the future as I feel that I have found a valuable peer, collaborator and source of inspiration in that tall drink of water. So look out for that.

So anyway, thanks for listening to our music. I'm pleased that some of you have derived a considerable amount of enjoyment from it. That's all we could have asked for. Occasionally we asked for beer tickets and we derived a considerable amount of enjoyment out of those.

Many thanks to everyone that has been in the band and to everyone that has supported us financially, TD Canada Trust, Hydra Head Industries, Dad and the rest of you."

Fans of Mare are recommended to check out The Autumn Project and Back When.

Just Ordered: Marijuana Myths Marijuana Facts: A Review Of The Scientific Evidence

This should be a very interesting read. From the comments I read on Amazon's review page, it seems to be very open and honest and very non-biased. Exactly what I'm looking for...for now.

Here are some quotes from the reviews I read:

"99.9% of people killed in traffic potatoes. So, if we ban the sale of this dangerous vegetable, think of the lives that would be saved."

"Has marijuana "addiction" ruined people's lives by de-motivating them? Possibly."

"in new zealand where ther is a pretty high use of marijuana but is still illegal , but lately we have a had a law changed , making prostitution legal . why is this?"

"tobacco smoke is much more harmful than marijuana smoke, but not for the reasons most people realize....Marijuana "joints" deliver much more active ingredient per unit of smoke than tobacco by FAR."

Guy Kozowyk (The Red Chord/Blackmarket Activities) responds 'whatever' to playing Ozzfest.

Guy and the rest of The Red Chord are awesome dudes. Here's another reason why:

"Sure, he's excited about being on this summer's Ozzfest and appreciates his band being invited. But to him, it's no big deal — he's not nervous, like some of the other bands on the tour because, the way he sees it, Ozzfest is just another gig.

"Whatever," he said, when asked what was going through his head the morning before Ozzfest kicked off here. "Honestly, for us, it's just like another day at the office. It's definitely exciting. If you'd asked me a year ago if my band would ever be on Ozzfest, it's like, 'We're a death-metal/grindcore/whatever band — Ozzfest is never going to go for that.' And so it's definitely unexpected and definitely crazy, but at the same time, we've played over 800 shows. We've played backyards, we've played basements and we've played the Sounds of the Underground in front of thousands of people. We're ready for anything. As excited as we are, we're just going to go do what we always do."

Kozowyk, who runs his own label, Black Market Activities, knows that Ozzfest is perhaps the biggest tour his band will ever be on and has heard people talking about how beneficial a slot on the fest can be for a band like the Red Chord. But he's not letting it go to his head.

"People say Ozzfest can make or break a band, but for us, we're ready to get bigger and we're ready to go back if it comes down to it," he said. "We've played so many small shows, and we're so comfortable in the small environment, that if Ozzfest doesn't break us into the mainstream, we're ready to go back to playing VFWs and basements. We've had such a good time that it doesn't matter what happens on Ozzfest for us. We're going to just roll with it. If it comes down to us being the big Ozzfest success, that's great. We'll sell a bunch of records. But as soon as the metal/hardcore/extreme-music thing drops off, and it isn't making the Billboard charts anymore, we really don't care — whatever. We'll be happy selling 20,000 records and playing to a couple hundred kids a night. It doesn't matter to us.

"Our attitude has always been the Red Chord are normal people playing to normal people out in the crowd. We're not better or bigger than anyone," he continued. "It's intriguing to think that we can come out of this tour and be the biggest death-metal band to date, because I don't know that there's any real brutal death-metal bands that have done this in the past. I think if [death metal's] ever going to get big, this might be our only shot. If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be. We could care less."

Daughters video from show in Denton, TX taped a couple songs (Hyperventilation System and Providence by Gas Light) both taken from their new album Hell Songs. I was surprisingly impressed w/ Daughters new material. I was thinking it was gonna be all sassy like Blood Brothers or something, and the vocals aren't screaming anymore, but the music is where it's at. And the new vocal stylings don't hurt it either. I read in an interview the singer (name?) is tired of screams which seems to be what a lot of hardcore/metal band vocalists end up feeling. Cool w/ me...The singer did seem like he was on heroine according to my roommate, Justin. I wouldn't know, but he didn't seem sober...see for yourself in the video. Thanks!

Gaza post new track from upcoming BMA release

Gaza has put up a track from their upcoming release "I Don't Care Where I Go When I Die" (Blackmarket Activities) out Oct. 3. Guy Kozowyk at BMA describes Gaza as "
a terrifying breed of dark, brooding and blasting hardcore/grindcore". I personally agree. Gaza are dark. Gaza are can hear it in the's not pissed in a "hardcore revolution" type way...and it's not evil in a black-metal satanic way, it just is. Check it out for yourself.

On another note, Imagine It records almost put out a 3-way split with Gaza, Thumbscrew and Robinson. But during the getting-everything-figured-out stage, Gaza got signed to BMA and Robinson joined Debello (all of whom I have much love and respect for) leaving you with the Thumsbcrew - Within Hearts of Redemption ep you have today.
