Germans and Austrians are the best Nachdem ich mal zu viel über trve und vntrve gehört habe, sehe ich dieses Thema eher genervt an :P So lange ich nicht mehr stundenlange Vorträge darüber bekomme, ist es mir egal :P
I am the ghost of my own shadow. I walk among the residue of culture. The scraps of commerce. The subtle streaked shoeprints of central Pedestria. I ride the electromagnetic waves of aimless wanderers. I am the eye of an unseen storm. The heart of a deeper soulless passion that I can never dream of holding for myself. I am the math hidden in the science. The rippling matter that carries the noise. I am the world beneath my own feet. Pushing back against my own weight and energy. My net force is zero, like my father, like my mother, like the cold indifferent universe that is expressing itself in my form for a fleeting insignificant length of time. We are all finite. We will all be forgotten. A day will come when there is no one left to remember anything, and nothing left to be remembered. I can't imagine a greater manifestation of freedom.
...Nor a greater contempt for those who try to deny us that cosmic reality.
As much as i love Slipknot and hate that the band booted Joey, i can't help but chuckle at this article on how Joey was fired, it is fucked up and at the same time funny as hell.
Joey Jordison Claims He Was Fired from Slipknot Via a Singing Telegram
Wednesday, October 1st, 2014 at 3:00PM By Axl Rosenberg
Following Jim Root’s allegations yesterday that Stone Sour fired him by phone, former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison has now revealed an even more shocking tale of woe: he claims that the ‘Knot told him he was out of the band via a singing telegram.
Jordison recounted the story exclusively for MetalSucks:
“I was sitting in my living room playing Skyrim, when there was a knock at my door. I wasn’t expecting anyone, so I was like, ‘Who could that be?’. I opened the door to find a guy in what looked like an old-fashioned elevator boy outfit. He did a little jig and started to sing this horrible song letting me know I’d been let go from the group.”
The Singing Telegram even gave Jordison a copy of the lyrics, which he has graciously shared with us, despite the pain they cause him:
I am your singing telegram
Sent to you this December
To let you know you’re not a member
Of our band anymore
So don’t get hit by the door
On your way out
It’s no use to cry and shout
You were once one of The Nine
But without you we’ll be fine
“What will ‘Knot be without me?”
Well we’ll tell you and you’ll see
We’ve already hired a Jew
To take the drum spot away from you
No, this message ain’t in jest
Yes, we wish you all the best!
We just don’t want you with us
When we get back on the bus
Please don’t try to beg or barter
Now you have more time for Scar the Martyr!
P.S. In case it wasn’t clear, you’re fired.
Jordison is just the latest in a long line of musicians who have been let go via less-than-polite means, including Dave Lombardo and Gene Hoglan, who each found out about their respective dismissals from Slayer and Fear Factory after reading about it online, and former Dimmu Borgir keyboardist Mustis, who was fired via text message.
Meanwhile, there’s a rumor going around that The Faceless’ Michael Keene prefers to let band members go via sky writing. We’re trying to get confirmation on that for you now.
I'm pretty happy you don't get a gun in Germany that easily as in the US.
Otherwise I could probably turn into a mass murderer some day.
It's just people are fucked. So many reasons to hate so many of them.
So many reasons to love just a little of them. Less reasons to love them all.
Could start listing reason to hate, but that'd probably break all boundaries
of a journal. Could turn into one of the longest journals written...
I've become rather disillusioned with the world and life, to the point that I certainly don't care about 'humanity' anymore, or even the earth. It all needs to be washed away, and most of all what we call 'civilisation' (what a fucking fraud).
So, due to both getting a new phone and peer pressure, I'm now on every fucking social media/messenger. Most of them will be empty right now due to the fact I've just started using them so bear with me here.
