My favorite record store just dedicated an entire section of the shelf to stoner metal, so I'm really getting into that. I've just been listening to just nonstop stoner metal for the last week, and I have a good amount of it, including Bong's entire discography, which is quite hard to find for free. I also got Black Masses by Electric Wizard and Windhand's self-titled LP on vinyl, both of which sound really nice, and feel great whenever I'm in my meditative state. The vocal frequency ranges, delays, and volumes are absolutely perfect, along with the bass-heavy, slow as fuck riffs.
New age music has been greatly inspiring me. I've been playing ultra chill new age guitar, hooked up to Ableton and ran through delay, reverb, resonation, etc. and it's really changed my perspective on everything, and made me much more relaxed. I highly recommend getting into this music or playing it.
Thank you, Devin Townsend, for making the album Ghost. Also, does anyone here know any music similar to this?
A few days ago I went with my father to pick up some speakers he had bought, and I fell asleep in the car on the way home. When I went to get out the door I saw a crane fly right next to where my face was, at most a couple of inches away. The next day I was walking my dog and the same crane fly flew right in front of me. The day after that (yesterday) it was in my room, flying around me. And just now it was outside my window, trying to get in my room. What the fuck is this?
I saw two movies recently. Last night I watched a Serbian film called A Serbian Film. It's my new favorite movie. It has a great soundtrack, too.
Today I watched a movie called John Dies at the End. It was how I imagine doing acid would be like. Which is kind of relevant, since I checked out the Silk Road a couple days ago and found some cheap drugs. Now I want to do acid.
In the summer, the weed will ascend through the air, drifting in the comfort of the breezes that puncture the heat.
To avoid wilting, dig through the basic soil and lift the vegetation. Separate the roots and hold the leaves in the heat of the sun. As the acid pours from a cloudless sky, allow the plant to metamorphose and play with imaginary letters in a disillusioned Heaven.
As the music stops, pull the television chord and allow the Earth to choke to death.
The needles and discs of PVC were the harbingers of transcendence.
Incase the thread's 404'd, here's the archive:
Well, I'm no longer a /mu/tant. People are going to be calling me a /mu/slim now.
Anyway, I went to the record store again last Saturday and got Yanqui U.X.O. by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Glow Pt. 2 by The Microphones, the Andrew Jackson Jihad/O Pioneers!!! split, and the collector's edition of Until the Quiet Comes by Flying Lotus.
I don't think I've written about this, but I got two records at this awesome store in Cambridge, Massachusetts: Coexist: Deluxe Version by the xx and F#A#∞ by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, which is by far the coolest record I have ever seen. It was less than $20 and it came with more stuff than any other record I know of, at least for the price. They are the best band to get on vinyl (followed closely by Neutral Milk Hotel).
Also, I'm going with a friend to see Animal Collective in concert in June, so fuck yeah.
Onto the most recent event:
I've discovered my new favorite visual artist! He's called David Burdeny, and these are some great examples of his work:
I meant to post this a while ago, but I was distracted by things that will become obvious in the entry itself.
Sometimes I think, "hey, maybe I'd like to have a family when I'm old; I hear great things about them." Then I remember that families include other people who I have to actually care about, and that's something I want to get away from, since I have so much of that right now. Nope. I want to die alone. Maybe with a romantic partner or something. Not planning on marriage, either, so that isn't a definite. (And I'm planning on killing myself before I get old. I don't want to die of natural causes, so I'm planning on one day going skydiving and not pulling the parachute.)
I've been working along the /mu/ essential dark ambient list:

1E, Deep_Frieze by SleepResearch_Facility, is one of the deepest collections of music I have heard in my life. I highly recommend you all engage in this journey as I have begun to. It is going to be a very interesting one for me.
I spent hours very thoroughly scrutinizing the lyrics to this Animal Collective song:
And this what I accomplished today:
Well, first of all I'll start off by saying that I ordered Burzum's Umskiptar limited edition vinyl. I feel good knowing I gave $40 to a murderer/church arsonist. (And yes, the money is going to him, not the label, because he owns the label it was released under.) It's a very interesting recitation of the Old Norse poem, Völuspá. The beginning and end are very ambient and atmospheric, perfectly setting the dramatic mood of creation (in the introduction) and destruction (in the last two songs, about Ragnarök).
Here's the link to the bill:
Here's an article that takes out all of the Republican sugarcoating:
Fortunately, I already made a video of my response to this, so I don't have to write as much here.
