A passionate social activist with expressive lyrics who knew how to appeal to people with his revolutionary views. Never showed fear, commanded immense respect from whoever he dealt with, encouraged people to "stop, study your lessons, always do your best" (Me Against The World) and follow their dreams.more...
I listen to Pac, but I tend to gravitate more towards his songs like Me Against The World, , Changes, etc. He lived what he spoke (well, most of it) and the fact that he died at the peak of his career only immortalized him. Very emotional in his lyrics, not necessarily the best/most skillful lyrics, but emotional and passionate and can really touch your heart if you take the time to appreciate. This might be stretching it, but Pac is to me a sort of Shakespeare, who will live forever because he spoke of ideas and concepts that everyone can relate to, like jealousy, greed, hatred, injustice, etc. and he did it articulately and with style. Pac knew how to balance meaningful, deep songs with radio smash hits, an ability lacking in a lot of today's artists.
"Btw, on his album 'Until the End of Time' , he has a song 'Fuck Friendz' (a song that thrashes his 'friends') right beside a song titled 'Lil Homies' (Which is a tribute to his 'friends')."
No man, Fuck Friendz is a song about some girl he wants to get with but not have an emotional relationship. A friend with benefits. And Lil Homies is a song about youth caught in the thug lifestyle before they've even become me...
An absolutely disgusting (good disgusting!) Canadian death metal band. Formed in 1989, they attracted the attention of Roadrunner Records and put out two fine albums in the early nineties, before being dropped by the label and undergoing some lineup changes. It would be five years before the band would record again, but even hardened fans of the band were probably not prepared for the complete and utter insanity that is Obscura. Twisted riffs, insane time changes, odd jazzy/dischordant interludes, it's all there, a tangled mess that somehow the band manages to keep under its control. A work of death metal genius, or an experiment in complexity gone awry? Though hard to say for sure, the album did garner many excellent reviews, and truly put Gorguts' name at the top of experimental death metal bands. Their followup, 2001's From Wisdom To Hate, reigns in the chaos a bit (but only a litle bit) -- these guys are almost unparalleled in their ambition to craft bizarre, experimental, yet undeniably brutal death metal.
Sadly, drummer Steve MacDonald committed suicide in late 2002, and little has been heard from the band since.
Apparently, according to deathgrind.de, they are no more.
All hail Gorguts!
"Shit dude, this guys voice in Gorguts is fuckin' raspy! Dryer than a nun's cunt!"
Born Michael Trent Reznor, this all-around genius grew up in small-town Pennsylvania. He rejected his upbringing and was immensely trained as a classic pianist.more...
He wished to bring electronic music into the mainstream, but instead of what had been done with it in the past, he wanted to give it feeling and danger. He succeeded, if naively, with his first release under the name "Nine Inch Nails", Pretty Hate Machine in 1989.
He proved he could outdo himself with an 8-song EP stopgap "Broken" between his first release and his next. "Broken" was a solid expression of passion and fury. One of his best moments.
He followed up with "Fixed", an EP with remixes of "Broken" Songs.
In 1994, Trent broke into the mainstream with the titanic success of "The Downward Spiral". It contained his most commercially famous songs, the infamous "Closer" and "Hurt", which was later beautifully covered by Johnny Cash. "The Downward Spiral" was spun off with several remix EPs, including the extremely popular "Further Down the Spiral" and the dreaded by parents "Closer to God".
Trent and NIN (Nine Inch Nails) spent a terribly long time touring "The Downward Spiral" and afterwards, Trent had no idea what to d...
A combination of two different words, GENius and manIAC.
A brilliant individual who is completely and utterly out-of-control, possibly even insane.
If you encounter a geniac, do not attempt to emulate them, for it can only result in disaster.
If two geniacs come into contact, the results can vary from one extreme, spectacular mutual destruction, to the other extreme, extraordinary creative power.
Evariste Galois was definitely a geniac.
By age 20, he had failed out of school, been in prison, invented a new branch of algebra, and solved an unsolved mathematical problem.
At age 21, he was dead from a gunshot wound in a duel.
Hoax religion founded by science fiction author and fucktard as a tax shelter, using material from his published works of science fiction as articles of faith. It is also known in its alternate spelling as "Sollontology", as coined by TV talk show genius Gorgeous George. Scientology is not to be confused with crap.more...
Adherents of Scientology are primarily Hollywood celebrities, lawyers, and women who want to penetrate Tom Cruise.
Scientology drama is all too common, and most of it is extremely amusing. For instance, to advance in the faith to OT level III to learn the tale of Xenu, the galactic tyrant who stacked hundreds of billions of his frozen citizens on planes that looked like DC8's with rocket engines, and hauled them over to Earth to be thrown into volcanoes for at least 100 years before blowing them up with hydrogen bombs and brainwashing them with a "three-D, super colossal motion picture" for 36 days.
The traumatised thetans subsequently clustered around human bodies, in effect acting as invisible spiritual parasites that can only be removed using advanced Scientology techniques. The cost of reaching OT III is only $360,000. Central to the belief is in alien past lives, such as being "decieved into a love affair with a robot decked out as a beautiful red-haired girl", being run over by a Martian bishop driving a steamroller, being transformed into an intergalactic walrus which perished after falling out of a flying saucer and being "a very happy being ...
A man who was born a genius, but since no one could compete with his brains went insane out of boredom and started killing people. Then he met Batman, and found someone who actually understood him, who <i>completed</i> him and <i>didn't laugh at any of his jokes</i>. So now he tries to screw Batman's life up, because Batman's just too much damn fun.

The Tragedy of Macbethmore...
by William Shakespeare
SCENE I. A desert place.
Thunder and lightning. Enter three Witches
When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When the hurlyburly's done,
When the battle's lost and won.
That will be ere the set of sun.
Where the place?
Upon the heath.
There to meet with Macbeth.
I come, Graymalkin!
Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
SCENE II. A camp near Forres.
Alarum within. Enter DUNCAN, MALCOLM, DONALBAIN, LENNOX, with Attendants, meeting a bleeding Sergeant
What bloody man is that? He can report,
As seemeth by his plight, of the revolt
The newest state.
This is the sergeant
Who like a good and hardy soldier fought
'Gainst my captivity. Hail, brave friend!
Say to the king the knowledge of the broil
As thou didst leave it.
Doubtful it stood;
As two spent swimmers, that do cling together
And choke their art. The merciless Macdonwald--
Worthy to be a rebel, for to that
The multiplying villanies of nature
Do swarm upon him--from the western isles
Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied;
And fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling,
Show'd like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak:
For brave Macbeth--well he deserves tha...
