Okay, I guess Rob Flynn is from the Bay area….
Bay Area thrash… So he has those lyberal progressive polyticks…
We all knew Dimebag was a hick from Texas but that motherfucker could play guitar like hardly any other. And did anyone ever take Phil Anselmo serious? He’s kinda like your drunk, racist uncle….
I love metal, never liked “the scene.” Always thought metalheads were scumbags. Never liked how they were either backwoods rednecks or liberal, holier than thou progressives. Haha, I remember when a metal girl, a white broad with tats freaked out when I referred to myself as a halfbreed, ‘murrikan mutt. Haha, if I can’t even call myself a halfbreed, PC has gone way to fucking far….
Okay, Rob Flynn, I respect you and disrespect you. I’d say that to your face. Machinehead is one of the best bands and one of the worst bands I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen you own a show, when you ran out of songs. When you played “SweetChild of Mine.” Haha, wasn’t the hugest Machinehead fan but that night you pulled it off. Killed it. Dude, then I saw ya get upstaged by Arch Enemy. They did their shit, super tight. Tough act to follow. Half the audience left. You didn’t give a fuck about the half that stayed. You played half assed and cut the set short. I’ve seen kids out of the garage do far better just because they gave a shit. You went from a band I’d check out if I got the chance, to must see, to, argh, only if there are a bunch of other bands on the bill….
And he is some guy trying to support himself driving for Uber with no benefits….
Whose the privileged one now you fuckers????
Alright, a few years back, around 2009 or 2010, I read a few things by Nietzche. In a few online and real life discussions with edjamacated folks I was told that I misunderstood his premise. What I took away from reading him was he suggested a dual morality. One for “peasants” and one for “the powerful.” Or, in moderne terms, one for the non-wealthy (the 99 percenters) and another for the wealthy. The poor are obligated to “work hard” and “pay their bills.” The rich are obligated to “grow their wealth.”
Let’s look how this plays out…
Someone gets in debt. They are told to face up to their fiscal responsibility. To get a second job and/or work more hours at the current job (if that is an option.) Now, look what happens when a filthy rich guy like The Don has money problems-Bankruptcy, mutherfuckers…. Funny how banksters will tell homeowners not to walk away from a home with an underwater mortgage but they will readily wash their hands of “a bad investment.”
Another thing, lets say, you take the first job that comes along and you realize pretty quickly it’s not what you thought it was. In fact it is what many would call a “toxic environment.” You could quit. However, you might look like a dreaded jobhopper. Some people’s advice will be to “suck it up” for over a year. Have you ever heard the phrase “Hire Slow and Fire Fast!” Another one you might see in business journals is “to fail quickly.” Now on an individual level, if you feel something isn’t working, well, why should you stay with it. However, it’s ironic that those who would hire slow and fire quick will judge you as “flakey” for not “sucking it up” and “pushing through the pain.” Double standard much?
Looks like those in power are operating under a different set of rules….
