Когда встает беда
пожара черным дымом
И близкая труба
хрипит, на бой крича -
Милее нам перо
или рука любимой,
Но мы кладем ладонь
на рукоять меча

About time. To be fair, I'd rather have more News Hasn't Happened Yet.

Rest in peace, Andrew Tolvern. We will miss you, mate.

Is there a term for something that borders between "alter ego" and "imaginary friend"?

I had a think, the only thing I could say would be a split personality, that could be the barrier between the two.

I'm well versed and psychologically minded but I ain't a professional (even at my young age) so I wouldn't take what I say as gospel at all. Just my estimation.

I hope you are well rodox. :]

Thanks :]

After thinking about it even further I came up with the term "Personified Ego", if that makes sense.

I guess. I was kinda skirting around that word due to negative association with the term.

I've always had a fascination with this piece of footage. I even used it to accompany a song I did a long time ago. There's something beautiful about the image of that mushroom cloud coupled with something horrific because of the fact that, at least in my mind, most or even all of those soldiers are now dead due to the radiation contamination. I have no idea if that's actually true but that's my take on it and it's what makes the video sad as well as beautiful for the other given reason.

The footage stuck with me too, someone posted it in the BoC subreddit and memories came back of a fanmade music video for Alpha and Omega that was made up of the clips. I even remember someone in the comments of it mentioning that backstory and since then I've always felt AaO to be one of the most sinister BoC tracks, like how the middle of the song marks a point where the album starts descending into madness, so does the usage of nukes mark a point of no return for humanity.

Somehow I submitted a post and it seems to have disappeared on me. Apologies if it shows up somewhere random that I didn't intend.

Here's my random question, after seeing a thread talking about the pronunciation Autechre...


How in the hell do you pronounce Amon Tobin?

I love At the End of the Day. That one blew my mind when i heard it in a movie called 'Candy' and it's been in every mixtape I've made since.

Anyone remember the "Anachronology" picture I posted in the original artwork thread? Well the building where I took the source pictures burned down the other day. Not the first time my neighborhood has run the risk of burning down, but at least i didn't have to call the fire Department this time :lol:

I'm getting major Hell Interface / Sheol Boundary / Odd Nosdam signals from this but thought it was really funny so I thought I would share. If any of you made this, well done.

Thanks to hexagonFox for digging in to this. I saw DAS post all of this the other day but kind of brushed it off so just having some fun with it now. If you go to this users bandcamp, their one album is $1,000 and each individual song is $1,000. Lol.

Also, this has Hell Interface written all over it.

"GO TO HELL GO TO HELL"

Edit: In the "I MY FIRST fucking subscriber!!" video, those drums seem like a very common sample but they are identical to the Roygbiv part in the "Uuh" video by Sheol Boundary.

oakmoss&amber - You may be onto something... check out Monday Breakfast on their Bancamp page at about the 6:38 mark. It's a whole 'nother Year?
