So you live in New Zeland! Damn, that's so far away from my place.

And I'm legitimately happy for this! The world's slowly becoming a more sensible place. Congrats, Chris. :3

Thank you! It certainly helps that Uruguay legalised gay marriage so recently too, because those who dare to vote against the bill would/will be seen as socially backward & just big losers, as they should be!!!

I'd love to see all of the US legalize gay marriage, but it won't happen because we're a very backwards country. Virginia will never ratify it, sadly. At least Maryland did, though!

And New York! I was happy when that happened.

But you're so right, America really is a backwards country. We're too conflicted with one another.

I'd like to think that within 20-30 years, the majority of of the world (therefore, America) will look back and think 'wtf how were we ever like that'. Like how those who are not racist & ignorant look back on the civil rights movement of the '50s and '60s.

It's still illegal here in Pennsylvania, I think. Not sure, though. It isn't something I can relate to, so I have a difficult time being anything more than neutral on the matter, tbh. I guess I can understand people being upset about it, from both perspectives.

In my state we've passed the bill through the three out of the four requirements it has to go through. Then they went on Spring Break so we've yet to get a vote on it, but I do believe they're coming back to vote on it really soon.

I'm glad New Zealand is more sensible than the US.

I wonder why that is. Never really occurred to me, because I don't pay attention to what's "popular".

I honestly hated metal up until a few months ago. Now I'm somewhat of a metalhead, somehow haha.
Glad to hear you're coming to the metal-side! What sort of bands are you listening to? I could sugest a few similar ones if you like. [Drop me a VM if I don't respond, I tend to miss a lot in the DCC now and then.]

And an hour has passed. Yipee-doo.

So, like, how was your Friday? :I

Mine was meh. I'm kinda sad for my friend, she broke up with her boyfriend.
That sucks, buy her chocolate or alcohol, and let her know that; 'I do and always shall care about your well-being; thus I'm going to make you happy, and maybe a little fat and drunk.'

Getting a tearful smile at your bad jokes is always the first move when someones upset.
Booze and chocolate is just a personal preference though.

What are you planning to spend it on? You should treat yourself!

Quote originally posted by ⊗Slenderman⊗:
My Friday went relatively well. Got up early and finished what I had to get done today several hours earlier than usual and finished a drawing of the Rake which apparently is quite frightening, according to someone I know who seen it. Now I'm just being tired and lazy.

By the way, I ate some long-expired cheese today to prove to a family member that it really is still safe. Was I wrong? She ate a lot more of it than I did (I only ate enough to tell if it tasted funny) and now she's nauseous. .__.
I'm afraid you're going to turn into a cheese-man.

I actually haven't found many bands so far that I like. I'm kind of picky, though haha. I just like certain songs from here and there.

A...cheese man...okay. I don't want to be eaten, though. Or grated. I'm also not a man. ;?

Ah fair enough, I'm quite picky too; generally I don't just like whole sub-genres of metal, it varies from band-to-band within the sub genre. I guess i'm just a pain.

Yup, a cheese-man. Doesn't matter if youre a man, or a girl or even just cheese. You'll become a cheese-man.

Edit: Also I learned today that if a human could throw just one tenth of the power that a Mantis-shrimp can punch, then we could throw a baseball into orbit. Mother-nature is quite amusing sometimes.

Oh yeah mantis-shrimp are really powerful creatures I heard. There's two appendages on their body that move at the same velocity as a gunshot from a 22-caliber riffle and they can strike a prey with 1,500 Newtons of Force.

You probably saw this then?

Mantis Shrimp is probably one of my favorite animals after reading this. And I really want Gamefreak to make a mantis shrimp based Pokemon now. :/

Oh wow, I love that song and Red so much. (Though it's not exactly metal.) I like some metal bands, more of less ones that don't use excessive amounts of screaming in their music, but lately I've also been getting into so hardcore/ screamo/ metalcore artist that use lots of screaming , like August Burns Red is one of my favorites. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugPxKkDmh5M

If you posted that on Metal-Archives, Slender, they'd laugh your ass right off the site.

Metal Storm, on the other hand, would be more forgiving.

I don't even know what that is.

I know it isn't the same as most metal (or at least the stuff I've heard), but it apparently is considered to be metal, and I like it. I haven't stumbled upon a lot of heavier stuff, but do like a couple of the songs that I've found.

Maybe I'll eventually stop being lazy and look up what the lyrics to one of them, because I have no clue what he's saying. .__.

Yeah I've been a fan of the oatmeal for a long time but I somehow missed that one until earlier today.

The whole 16 colour-receptive cones is mind-boggling.

Have you stumbled upon Release the Panic? The song, not the album.

It's considered metal, from what I've read. Though some of their music doesn't seem anywhere near it, in my opinion.

They draw some influence from the heavy metal genre, but from what I've heard of them, they're primarily alternative rock, with touches of hard rock and post-grunge.

And before anyone asks, "alternative metal" nowadays is just a handy catch-all term for music where their metal status is highly ambiguous.

Bits and pieces. I've only heard the actually song (Release The Panic) , Perfect Life and Hold Me Now. Pretty good songs imo, but rather different from their other stuff.

I actually never heard of The Oatmeal lol, but yeah I just wonder what colors they can see but can see. Also amazing how violent something that small can be. Like how their limbs move so quickly they can boil the water around them. O_O I mean dang wow.

Too young to buy booze, I'm only 17. :c I am taking her to a theater performance, though (although that was before they broke up).


As for music, zebrahead is probably my favorite band. Shocks me that almost no one has heard of them, they're a great punk rock band.

Ooh, I know plenty of bad jokes!
Just ask, Dipu!

Psh, 'favorites' are lame.
I know a good number of great bands/artists, but I personally don't have a favorite.

Listening to Zebrahead now, they're okay I guess.
You ever heard of Ludo?
