Hate mail
Entered on: May 18, 2004 12:17 AM by Swerb
I reviewed a Metallica concert a couple weeks ago, and received this e-mail yesterday. Please note I didn't edit it at all:  
Dear John, HI my name is Dale I'm writing this in responce to your review of the metallica, godsmack concert. You must not know your music very well both band put on a hell of a show. In your review you said "Hatfeild'svoice dosen't have the bite it once did". I beg to differ with you I've been a true Metallica fan from the beging and always will be to the end. Also one of the best parts of ac live show is the drum and guitar solos I don't think anybody in the arena cared if kirks three solos were to much. You claim your a fan in your article but you must have jumped on the band wagon when the black album came out . One more thing how did GODSMACK lose wree you putting ear pluggs in you sensitive ears Sullys vocal efforts wrer awsome. After reading your articile I've decided that maybe you should stick to reviewing food for the weekend section of the paper or maybe start reviewing pop concerts I hear jessica simpsons going to be at dte energy center. I'm going to close this I'm hoping to get a response from you. Yours truely and a METALLICA FAN FOR EVER DALE NICHOSON

I wonder if God is really holding the human body sacred and precious when he allows flesh eating bacteria to dessimate it? Oh wait, I forgot, I don't subscribe to that brand of superstition. This lady can go fuck herself. I bet her husband goes to the Vu.  
Speaking of which, wouldn't it be sweet if it was the Vu. Roche would really be in struggle between good and evil.

Excellent point Bone. If you start holding up such fanciful superstitous arguments to scrutiny, they quickly become ridiculous. If god intends you to treat your body in such a fashion, why does HE seem to fuck with it so readily? What kind of god even allows the kind of suffering we see and read about on a daily basis? If god is all-good and all-powerful, how can evil even exist? Ah, but these are merely Philosophy 101 arguments against the existence of a Christian god. Regardless, it is clear to anyone who does a modicum of research that our country does not base its laws on Christian doctrine, much as the religious right would have us believe. However, the law is often not enough for the bible thumpers - take Roy Moore, the Alabama judge who refused to take out the Ten Commandments from his courthouse, even after he was ordered to by a higher court. Pure zealotry.  
Anyway, yes, I think we would see Roche's inner Vader winning this struggle. You don't know the POWER of the Roche side!

This is a pretty sweet article that nicely articulates my feelings on this kind of religious zealotry:

Great article. I agree with everything the author says. I wish I could live long enough to see mankind shed it's religious crutch. As a species we would really take off from there. Unfortunately I will die long before this ever happens.

I guess the guy who owns Sensations is opening up a full-nude strip joint in downtown GR. I'm not certain when it's happening, but city planners have begrudgingly given the guy the go-ahead, because they can't legally stop him. Har! Bert, I know we've had discussions about the evil of capitalism - but if it pisses off Christians and they can't do anything about it, then it's definitely good.

I was reading a thread about the Dead Sea Scrolls in of all places a Martial Arts forum, and the originator was some Christian dumbass who got into an arguement with another guy. Here's the other guy's response which cracked me up:  
Look moron, I mean mouse, I don't know if you're off your meds or what, but you don't have the intellectual horsepower to even hold a conversation with me. You want to waste your life believing in a lie based on a fairy tale that was written 2,000 years ago for neanderthals that still thought the Earth was flat, go right on ahead. Just don't try to act like there's a functioning brain inside that down syndrome skull of yours. The dead sea scrolls are showing more that Christ was just a man who was crucufied and died, end of story. You SAY that you knowa little something about Christian history, but nothing could be further from the truth. All you do is perpetuate myths and false history. There were over 80 gospels written but Constantine(BTW, he was a PAGAN) only chose to put the ones in the Bible that perpetuated the myth that Christ was divine so that he could easily get the masses to live in an easily contollable way. Idiots like you who think that Christ walked on water, that moses parted the red sea, that the world was created like it says in Genesis(LOL), that Noah put 2 of every animal on a big boat to save them from a big flood is utterly stupid. All the great minds know that, only feeble minded cowards like you that are incapable of having a single original thought take what they've been spoon fed through out their lives stil believe that laughable joke. There is already MOUNTAINS of evidence that refute your ridiculous beliefs but your too blind and stupid to see it. So don't try to play the intellectual card and try to come off like you have a clue what you're talking about. You don't. You're quite stupid and it shows.

That's hilarious. Were there really that many gospels, though? I knew there were more, but I didn't know it was 80.  
So what martial arts forum do you read? I used to read the major Usenet newsgroup for martial arts years ago, but it eventually became obvious that it was pointless - it usually devolves into a bunch of guys having essentially religious arguments about which styles are better, so the signal-to-noise ratio tended to be pretty low.

I read the following:

Conversation between my friend Brian Jones and a Christian proselytizer:  
Brian: Why do you have to go around on missionary trips and spread your beliefs? Why can you just let dudes do what they want to do, be who they want to be?  
Christian: If you had the cure for cancer, wouldn't you want to share it?  
Brian: If I had the cure for cancer, people would be knockng down my door to get it. If you are selling shit, then you need to go out and work hard to sell it.  
By the way, nothing to do with the above but this is the business that Brian Jones quit the Navy to start.
From: Ross Entered on: May 30, 2004 7:37 PM
That is a sweet conversation. Eloquent, too.  
Speaking of fighting, this is a fucked up repugnant kickboxing video. I can't watch it again:
From: BigFatty Entered on: June 1, 2004 4:51 AM
Brian Jones is normally a bit more eloquent, but he also gets to the point too. He is also the sweetest human ever created - except he quit the Navy to product Leg Lamps out of his condo. But, being Brian Jones - he will make a huge success of it somehow! Fucking Bastard.
From: Ross Entered on: June 1, 2004 9:11 AM
Why, Fatty, have you transferred your male crush from The Bone to The Jones?
From: BigFatty Entered on: June 1, 2004 10:26 AM
No, no, the Bonecrush is still on full - much like Johnny. With Brian Jones, its a deep-seated admiration for the things he has done. (Except the Leg Lamp thing of course) Everything he has touched has turned to gold. Tony has told me many a story of this cat. He is a super nice guy, and for once the nice guys are finishing first! I stayed with him for a week when I went to San Diego. He met me once before, but offered me to stay at his place.  
A good way to describe him is the anti-Fatty. He is everything I am not. Industrious, Smart, Motivated, No Video Games, Well Spoken, Physically fit..... It goes on
From: The Bone Entered on: June 1, 2004 11:39 AM
The above quote wasn't verbatim. It was translated into Bonespeak. By the way, Jones is saying he made 70 large last year off the leglamps. He owns a house in Norfolk, Virginia and one in San Diego. He also invested in a company that makes airport security screeing equipment, get this - before 9/11! and made some bucks. Fuck that guy!
