  • High On Fire - Everything2.com
    chaotic but gives the convincing impression of madness while remaining strict and ordered Many songs feature intros with a distinctive Indian influence which adds to the overall style of the music in a small but noticeable way Much of High On Fire s defining sound is due to Pike s custom First Act guitar which has normal EAG strings but double GBE strings making it a 9 string guitar The 12 string effect on the higher registry gives high notes a chorus like chime while any power chords stay flat and heavy The lyrics are typically about ancient monsters or mysteries and have a sense of taking place in early civilization Violent imagery is common as are religious concepts Many songs are inspired by the works of H P Lovecraft dealing with humans stumbling upon horrors that are better left undisturbed At least two songs The Face of Oblivion Cometh Down Hessian are based directly on Lovecraft stories The music itself provides the backdrop of antiquity and the words add a sense of horror and doom to it Discography Art of Self Defense 2001 Surrounded By Thieves 2002 Blessed Black Wings 2005 Death Is This Communion 2007 Snakes For the Divine 2010 While the band is now more than ten years old their popularity has skyrocketed in the last few years due to the mainstream exposure of their last few albums For their earlier work they played a bass heavy Melvins style stoner rock which sounded good enough but wasn t very original They did find their niche eventually and Blessed Black Wings and Death Is This Communion were both very highly praised High on Fire quickly became a band to watch closely In 2008 they participated in Megadeth s Gigantour and supported Opeth on their tour along with Nachtmystium They are well known for being a good live band which isn t always the case especially in metal An interesting sidenote Singer vocalist of Mastodon Brent Hinds held a High On Fire show in his basement at which he met two of his future bandmates drummer Brann Dailor and guitarist Bill Kelliher both of whom had moved to Atlanta only three weeks prior I like it personal by Leah01 Sun Dec 07 2008 at 12 23 48 I love you My love I love you and I cannot live with you You have your life your home your family I cannot reach you whenever I want to I cannot be with you as long as I want I cannot share all with you I have to share you It hurts so deeply My love I love you and I cannot live without you Just the thought of losing you makes me cry I cannot stop wanting you I cannot stop loving you I want you in my life What should I do My heart is breaking No matter what Maybe it s time for you to move Tell me goodbye Tell me you don t love me Tell me

  • The worst way to wake up - Everything2.com
    only imagine now memory came flooding back I knew her I have seen her many times Always at night We always have the same conversation I began to cry Why are you crying What did I do Nothing thats the problem You re not real This isn t real Don t say that I don t know whats gotten into you Just come to bed you ll feel so much better tomorrow NO I don t want to sleep I don t want to lose you again I realized how useless those words are for even as they left my mouth I felt the wave of sleep come over me You ll see tomorrow is gonna be so much better Tomorrow always is You ll feel so much better Just come to bed now Unable to fight I went to her I felt the warmth of her body against mine The curves of her figure I don t want to lose you again I love you Good night I awoke The sun was in my eyes and yet I felt cold There was nobody beside me Just me Alone again in my apartment as the world went by I hate dreaming No thats not true I hate waking up I like it idea by dokool Sat Mar 29 2003 at 7 14 38 1 Quickly The first worst way to wake up is quickly not because the act of getting up quickly may result in neck back pain but because having to wake up quickly generally means there s a reason for it Sure your inital waking may be slow and controlled but when the clock reads 9 15 and your final exam started at 9 that changes Your sense of awareness goes out the window as you panic trying to remember where you have to be what you have to do and why oh why can t the alarm wake you up in time Note Often results in having to run to class with minimal required clothing and not having shower ed Other reasons for this include being jostled awake by a loud noise or phone call leaving you scrambling because you have no idea what happened or where the phone is 2 From a nap only if you wake up in the evening This only happens if you wake up when the sun is starting to fade Results in initial shock caused by the fear that you ve actually slept through the night and that it s now morning Generally followed by relief when you see what time it really is 3 In the middle of the night Leads to massive disorientation followed by the realization that you can either attempt to fall back asleep thus turning your sleep into a nap or you can just stay up and get through the day Often is the cause or result of massive alterations to your sleep cycle I like it I m just so tired of waking up all

  • "Don't die to go to heaven, start in on Doctor Pepper and end up on whiskey!!" - Everything2.com
    ago I met the Dwarf of Stapleton Market and for ten dreadful minutes we got on famously I was known from then on as The Great White Man To The West and immediately began signing my checks with all capital letters My letters were the talk of the land for some time and I was published in my thirty second year And so it came to pass that I offered up a challenge to the gods themselves I will not detail the events that follows suffice to say that Jesus went home crying and the Devil never even showed up there must be a point at which all that is right and wrong becomes extremely obvious and because it is all so clear it makes no difference which is done It s been over two months and the bathroom counter is still being held up by empty milk crates What can they be doing in there It would seem the potential for bathroom remodeling would be a limited if noble pursuit Second vision marionette puppet torsos dangling over a spare stage human body parts shuffled and mismatched to form actors legs grotesquely sewn onto pelvi arms rammed into shoulder sockets heads hung from thickly veined necks different skins and clotted bloody scabs where the pieces come together wires connected to joints and backs by large rusty staples run up to two large hands one blood red the other blue paisley a campy soundtrack playing in the back ground of the moans and occasional cries of pain A puppet show version of the Andy Griffith show happy ending and all put on by rotting corpses and audiences of young children screaming and shitting themselves in terror as one of them is picked up torn apart and used as an extra Opie needed a cousin in the show The doors to the theatre are merely painted on and a painful reality asserts itself as a section of the ceiling slides open and the kids look up to see their parents looking on with hors d eovres and coffee there s a theory going around that the first catholics shot heroin to see God I think they shot heroin to forget about Him for awhile Wine just wasn t enough I have bad dreams everytime I kill someone They seem to come in groups of three and the themes are always the same They involve insects drugs and disease Sometimes I write them down but they never make sense I m scared someday they will Intersection Part Three The first time I killed myself things went poorly it was far more difficult than I d thought and my preparations left a lot to be desired It was during the war and large quantities of metal were hard to come by I substituted with rock but the sheer bulk quickly became a problem I pressed on nonetheless resolute and not about to be stopped by a mere lack of materials I finally brought the

  • My job is cleaning up dust - Everything2.com
    the backs of my legs from sloshing around through puddles helping the porters wash the finished products of the day I watch the painters sanding and priming panels rubbing them with sanding blocks and their bare hands rubbing it to feel the smooth surface for dents or waves before the painter with the double filter mask measures and fills his gun and canister for the next car Hoses snake around their feet on the bare concrete floor Each man carries a jet so when he is done sanding welding or drilling he can hook it into a hose and air himself off tossing clouds of dust into the air like confetti One big hot celebration of dust in 90 degree heat In the body shop Efren and Alvin are taking their usual break Both are Jehovah s Witnesses and both drink Pepsi leaning against a commercial fan whose only purpose it to blow hot air and dust out of the way temporarily They sweep and try to tidy up before the next car gets pulled into their stall but anything that is not used regularly or left sitting too long will be continuously covered in a thick layer of gray powder You can never really get rid of it Can I help you A gray haired man stands in the front office rocking on the heels of his work boots spattered with paint Yeah I need to get an estimate He looks past me down the hall where he hears the voices of men The painters are taking a break in Randy s office printing their asses and elbows on his chairs in white chalk drinking in the A C Let me get a piece of paper Where are you parked You can write one His face lightens as his jaw cranks back almost shocked but not at ease to fully speak his mind since our office is a bit more high brow looking than most body shops would When the dealership was bought out we got new carpeting and plate glass doors Even though the temperature would climb as high as 102 degrees during the summer months all employees were being allowed to wear shorts and T shirts for the first time With his torn T Shirt and bloodshot eyes he was the one who stood out not me Yes actually I can It s what I m here to do He s in and out in ten minutes I handed him my card and had my secretary set him up with an appointment He scheduled for Monday I m back in the bathroom scrubbing up like a surgeon Some of the dirt is embedded into my fingerprints and it won t come out You start out wearing navy blue but come home white and green Handprints sprout on every forehead and along the walls in the office where men have rested their weight while they spoke to us about their dilemmas back ordered parts supplements the wrong color

  • Saint Paul did not screw up Christianity - Everything2.com
    pharisaical because of his lists of rules it is also true that the libertines of Christianity found their inspiration from the many passages in Paul where he talks about the priority of faith over law even the Mosaic law to which he was committed There are elements of authoritarianism and cult like thought in Paul s epistles but these elements appear even more strongly in the Johannine corpus and also appear in non Pauline works such as Matthew and the Didache Back to Christianity is wrong I like it Crosstianity Why Christianity never caught on in Japan Christian Urban Legends implicit anti Semitism in liberal Christianity The Didache Christianity Is Stupid Thorn in the flesh An Argument Against the Abolishing of Christianity Saint Paul Christianity has caused more war throughout the ages than any other cause The effects of disease upon three major world religions Hinduism Christianity and Buddhism What s so wrong with eugenics anyway Philippians 2 1 Corinthians 11 cat moment Christianity Mere Christianity Pharisaical Mosaic Law Blue hair isn t only weird looking it s wrong corpus callosum Mahayana Christianity Log in or register to write something here or to contact authors Sign in Login Password remember
