An off-topic on the geekzone forum, I would have expected better than this? You know, those comments could have come across rather offensive BearningBeard?
Well if I offended you, sorry. I don’t think I directly insulted you though. I’ve called the links garbage, not you (I do try to attack the argument, rather than the arguer, but admit I’m not perfect when it comes to this.)
cgrew: Banned would hardly be the outcome for this sort of agenda deranged music but to what point are people or society going to say that this is unacceptable?
People DO say it’s unacceptable - all the time! People whine about it all over the internet. Religious lobby groups are constantly on the case. People complain to the Broadcasting Standards Authority.
Who is it to decide what is deranged and what isn’t? I listen to some absolutely crazy music, the sort of stuff that Joe Sixpack would say “isn’t music.” You mentioned not judging, but aren’t you doing just that? You’ve called it “agenda deranged” - what agenda? What proof is there of there even being an agenda? Who are these elites?
The tone of your posts suggests to methat even if they did ban this evil, occult material, you’d be the first to protest “them” for censoring music.
I’d sooner complain about stuff like Sensing Murder or the pseudo-science masquerading as “fact” on “documentary” TV. I personally find that stuff more offensive than your imaginary symbols or a chick that shows off too much leg in order to sell a stupid pop single that won’t matter in 10 years.
cgrew: We are constantly bombarded with this crap (Hollywood garble) Demon Heads in music videos? Promiscuity & sex pushed in 90% of all pop & clubbing music? Is society becoming desensitized to sex & violence? I think so.
I agree, Hollywood (well, most mainstream TV, music and movies) is mindless dreck, to me anyway... and that is why I don’t watch it... it bothers me less if I don’t actually see it.
“Demon heads.” Are you for real? Music videos are music videos. It’s entertainment. Sheesh, it’s a good thing there’s no such things as demons or we’d really be in trouble eh?
eta: Why the obsession with "hidden" symbols & messages in pop music? There's lots and lots of overtly satanic and occult related music out there - it's brazenly in your face. Surely you'd be more concerned with that?
I’m absolutely serious about what I said regarding these supposedly evil symbols - if you’re spotting this stuff in music videos, and it’s actually bothering you, then a mental health professional might be what you need. I knew a paranoid schizophrenic a few years ago and it’s heartbreaking to see what paranoid ideas can do to a person.
