I kinda got used to the funny looks. I'd just mostly ignore them and eventually the people I meet tend to stop looking surprised and sorta join in xD
You do standup? Thats awesome! Mind linking me to one of your acts? I wouldn't mind expanding my list of comics I listen to~ I like British comedians the best. People like Dara O'Briain, Marcus Brigstocke and Frankie Boyle never fail to cheer up my day =D Do you have a fave comedian?
Can I add you as a friend? Im new here so it'd be nice to expand my circle abit =)
I know a few things about that, but i like that in US is a much serious movement against this. And you have a Constitution on your side.
Also Romania got secularised in 1863 by A.I. Cuza, which was incredibly good for economy. Depossesion of church's wealth and lands speed up developement until... well, until '47(comunists took over). After the revolution in 89 somehow people forgot that. Now the Church is involved in businesses like, stock holdings at the nuclear power plant. :)) it was a scandal for a short period.
Here is a documentary with english subtitles if you ever have some time on your hands. It's pretty shocking but gives you an ideea on how they can easily become organised crime on the expense of people gulability. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMGz7yVasWo
hi ! thanks for the approach, i have been wandering around the network but i haven't taken the courage so far to comment along with others. i think my english is a little rusty.
yes, you are right, but eastern european are believed to be even more religious. statistics would show my country above average, which is true. Tragically. I have no real hope for a secularism in my state. it's not that people are so fanatic about religion, it's mostly because it works so well for some politic parties, especially in elections. Religion is tax-free so you can figure out the rest... :)
Different strokes I guess on the music thing. I like a range of vocals and when they're especially brutal I think it's awesome. I do like something I can sing along to though.
As far as a fan base goes...we don't really have one unless you count our friends. Anyway I'm not worried about alienating anyone. If people are super impressed by girls playing music and only like us because of that feminine quality they can fuck themselves as far as I'm concerned. Demanding me to be feminine and have a "female voice" is sexist. Women and men should enjoy us because of the music we make, not because we are or are not a particular type of something. Eh...I don't know how to get it across without sounding like a bitch. This must be why we don't have fans ;).
Yeah I'll be working on quitting smoking soon. I'm giving myself until the end of the semester so it's one less thing to worry about while I'm slamming my head against the wall trying to fit shit into my brain.
yeah, i better stay away from Mr. Libertarian. i tend to be of the mind that libertarians are cranks at worst and unrealistic utopianists at best. not for me! FAAST looks more my speed. thanks for the info!
Oh yeah, and that nu-metal stuff is crap! I love the old stuff as well, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Slayer, Meanstreak etc. I really do like the screamy/growly vocals stuff though. I wish I could make my voice do that stuff, but I don't think I smoke enough lol. I've been getting into metal and really heavy, brutal shit a lot lately. It was never my favorite before, but I'm hearing a lot of cool stuff thanks to Pandora radio. It's the only stuff that'll block out obnoxious coffee rock when I'm studying at a coffee shop.
