the dude of dudes

I feel like Terry Mckenna is one of the most important minds to exist in our modern age. Before I knew of him and his work, I was thinking about a lot of things, unable to put it into coherent thoughts much less words, but after watching his lectures, everything i had been trying to wrap my mind around had suddenly made sense. His work will open your mind, make you realize a bunch of things you might of (never) thought about. His early death fucking sucks, I wish he could have lived through 2012+ to see it.

What is the meaning of life? I dont know why there are philosophical debates over this, and why everyone thinks its a question that will never be answered. It's something so plain in sight, so blatantly obvious that the only conclusion I can come to is the masses are simply too scared to go through the thought process that im about to take you through.

The meaning of life is to survive and procreate. That is the only reason we, all of us, are here. But for a while now humanity hasn't had to work for survival. We've created a system, a series of automations, to survive for us- thus taking away the meaning of life.

People have tried to fill this hole with all sorts of things. We created religion. We created drugs. We created television. We created the internet. All these things, whether the act was conscious or not, were made to fill the void of meaningless existence, but none of things can truly fill that void.

...well religious people will tell you otherwise, but thats only because they are so driven by their delusion that it actually does give some sort of meaning to their lives, and thats all that matters to them. They ignore the swiss cheese pattern covering their belief system and just go with it.

The same can be said of people who use drugs. So fed up with reality, and ungullible to religion's happiness, they use drugs to escape the shithole of a world we live in. They ignore the health effects and continue to use. Same sitch for tv watchers/internet users.

Life is meaningless

Well there is only one true meaning in life still left. Relationships with other people. The bonds you share with friends are the only thing you truly have. Family doesnt count because they're supposed to love you. That might seem harsh but its the truth, your family only loves you because they have to, because of some biological trait gained through evolution. Relationships with friends hold some weight in meaning, but its not like we talk about literally everything that think about. A lot of us dont want our friends to know that were suicidally depressed so we dont talk about it, taking away a lot of the meaning in friendship.

The thing in life that holds the most meaning, maybe except for the care of your own child, is that of a
romantic relationship. You can never be as intimate with a friend as you can a romantic partner, thats obvious. The most meaningful thing that i could possibly obtain at this point in my life is a girl who likes me as much as i like her, but thats a lot to ask of someone. Theres always going to be someone better and more suited for this girl than you, you cant force a person to love you if they simply cant.

with the knowledge that religion is superstition
with the knowledge that drugs will hurt you
with the knowledge that TV and the internet are just distractions
without meaningful bonds between friends
without romance

what is the point to living?

And with that we are left with the answer. We should all kill ourselves, every last one of us should just kill ourselves. But heaven isnt real. So killing yourself is kind of stupid. so really it all boils down to this, your life will always be shitty and theres nothing you can do about it

sck trk ssh two

long time

Salem- Asia

I first heard of salem by watching a live video. They fucking mad sucked like insanely hard, but for some reason i was intrigued. Salem really has grown on me, even if they sound like an asshole live. I am really really really diggin this video. The aesthetic of digital grain is something ive been pretty interested in lately, its something i want to experiment more with. It seems like it'll be one of the next artistic fads if you dont already consider it one. this aesthetic is visually on par with the audio, complementing the drug soaked haziness that the music is realized through.

The Jesus and Mary Chain- Never Understand

I discovered the J/M chain through getting into shoegaze bands and from there learning that j/m chain was a major influence for these bands. Fueled by the drive of brothers Jim (vox)and William (guit)jmchain made audiences aware of the appreciation and preferation (new word i made up, p sweet right?) for rawness versus production. Its safe to say feedback is one of the band's defining characteristics, along with Jims dont give a shit vox and wills only gonna play guitar just enough guitar playing (and on this release the minimalistic/standing drum approach by drummer Bobby Gillespie). huge influence on me and everyone else in the indie rock realm, even if they dont know it.

you never understand me, you never understand me yeah

Waka Flocka Flame- Homies Ft. YG Hootie, Popa Smurf, & Ice Burgundy

Lemme set some shit straight. I think flocka is a horrible rapper. like hes one of the worst rappers to come out in the last 10 years, a true representation of the growing disease of laziness thats so fucking prevalent in our generation, Flocka has sated that "lyrics dont matter" which is kinda funny because thats pretty much the only thing that a rapper has to worry about. But lets look at this a dif way. Flocka says lyrics dont matter, aka you should base your love for music off of how it sounds rather than what someones saying, which is something i completely agree with and have always thought. anyways Prob getting way too deep into this, it is flocka after all. So despite flockas shitiness i love his new album Flockaveli. Shits hard as shit. I chose homies cause the hook is insanely phat. Song becomes a comedian at 5:00. just ff to that if your not feelin it

The Telescopes- The Perfect Needle
real versh

Live versh

This is really an amazing song. A quintessential shoegaze album/song. The lyrics "hurts too much to be where you are" coupled with "I've got the perfect needle" tell a sad sad story-> It hurts too much to be around the girl of my dreams because she doesnt feel the same way, but I have the perfect thing that takes away all the pain, a syringe filled with H. Posted the live versh to give you an idea of the souls behind it, posted the real versh cause everything except the guit and vox are relatively inaudible. do opiates and be depressed about a girl and listen to this song
