Inside Rock Music-Commentary-Everyone Is The SameNOT MORALLY NEUTRAL
Some say that music is never bad or good, but just something pleasant to be experienced. Exactly.
In defense of that idea, Maurice Zam, former director of the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music, wrote:
"Let us emancipate ourselves from the myth that music has anything to do with morals. Music is as amoral as the sound of a babbling brook or the whistling wind. The tones E, D, and C can be sung to the words, 'I love you,' 'I hate you,' or 'three blind mice.' "—Maurice Zam, quoted in Chicago Tribune, August 19, 1993. Thank you!
Dana Key heartily agrees. He says it is not the sound of the music itself, but only the lyrics—the words—that count.
"The 'goodness' or 'badness' of instrumental music is based on the performers' competence and skill. If the music is played without skill it is bad. If it is performed skillfully, it is good."—Dana Key with Steve Rabey, Don't Stop the Music, p. 69.

Inside Rock Music-Commentary-IntroHello. I'm doing another commentary. It's not a fanfic this time. It's a "non-fiction" website. The website in question is insiderockmusic.com. It's a site dedicated to exposing the fact that rock music is brainwashing people into Satanism. I didn't decide to comment on Dial-the-Truth Ministries because that site is too long. This one is more straightforward.
I find it suprising that this site was made in 2006 and from the looks of it was last updated in 2012. People are still worried about rock music these days. That's pathetic. Why? NO ONE does shock rock anymore.
-Elvis* is dead.
-Alice Cooper is a Christian and even volunteers at a sunday school for fuck's sake!
-GG Allin is dead.
-The Sex Pistols broke up and have 0 chance of getting back together anytime soon(brief reunion concerts don't count).
-W.A.S.P. went away the minute Nevermind hit the shelves.
-Marilyn Manson's a joke nowadays.
-No need to worry about Cannibal Corpse anymore. Hundreds of other bands now imitate them.

Swan Princess-Chapter 3-CommentaryCut to: Exterior, the grounds of Lilly's castle, day
"The musicians are not happy," said Sirius as he stated the obvious, pouring colored powder onto the practice arrows.Um. Why?
"I know but I have to practice," replied Harry tying a blindfold over his eyes, Ron doing the same beside him, only his arrows were blue.Yeah. His colors are THAT important.
"Oh, no complaints here. I think its going to be loads of…fun," replied Sirius.Dammit. I'm recalling bad memories of Sirry fanfiction.
"The Great AnimalOh. So that is it's name. is never going to give her up without a fight," replied Harry.
"You're not thinking he's still alive?" asked Sirius.
"When I find the great animal, Sirius, I'll find Draco," explained Harry.How do you know he's not DEAD? You shouldn't know at this point!
"Oh Harry, you've looked everywhere. He's not coming back. The whole kingdom knows it," Replied Sirius.
"The whole kingdom's wrong. Draco's alive, and I'm gonna find him. Y

"What else is there? He says, "is beauty all that matter?" and you say, "what else is there?!" lectured Sirius.NO! Why is Sirius involved in the psychological abuse?
"It was dumb, I know," replied Harry sorrowfully.Harry: Please don't put me in the angry room again! There are rats down there and they sometimes eat my toenails!
"You should write a book. 'How to offend submissives in Five Syllables or Less," came Sirius' voice as he continued his lecture.
"Your turn Prince Harry," said Ron from the other side of the chess board.Wait. I thought Harry was being pyschologically abused by Sirius? Why are there no transitions in this fanfic?
"I didn't know what else to say," Harry tried to explain, as Ron snuck one of Harry's chess pieces off the board.
"Oh! You lost your queen, Harry," smirked Ron at the irony of the statement.
"That's twice in one day!" snapped Harry.
"Think! You must see something other than Dra
Swan Princess-Chapter 1-CommentaryFound this "masterpiece" on TV Tropes. It's "The Swan Princess" with Harry Potter characters. Harry is Prince Derek and Draco is Princess Odette. It was abandoned after three chapters. Guess the author grew up. Let's see how bad this thing can be. Let's start off with the summary.
If you've ever seen Swan Princess and loved the movie this is the Harry Potter crossover for you.Actually it's a word-for-word transcript of the film with character names changed Hp/Dm you're gonna luv it :I don't love that couple and I don't think I'll like this.
Now,lets go to the actual story.
Harry Potter Swan Princess style That's not a good sign.
Narrator:Wait a minute. Isn't script format against ff.net policy?
Once upon a time there was a king named Lucius who ruled over a large and mighty kingdom. And yet, he was sad for he was growing old and had no child to inherit the throne. Then, happily a son was born… a princess.WTF!? He was a crossdresser si
LOS Reviews Swans-Filth
Ah. The 80's. To most people 80's music is Madonna,Duran Duran,Bon Jovi,etc. However,80's music has a darker side,namely Swans.
Before Jarboe bought in all the goth shit, they started out as a No Wave band. They were a lot darker and scarier back then.
When I first heard this album,it scared the hell out of me. What I heard was a guy shouting at me,unnatural guitar noises,a chugging bass and pounding drums. Seriously,it sounds like the band is murdering you to death.
Now,Mike Gira just shouts in this creepy monotone that is just..........creepy. He sounds like a person that had to be locked in the basement by his parents because he was a violent kid and when he grew up,he escaped the basement and joined Swans.
The guitar doesn't even sound like a guitar. It sounds like a fucking buzzsaw. The bass is pretty low,but when you can hear it,it just sounds mechanical. The drums are just pound away in a military like fashion.
Yet,it's an amazing record. Why? It's pr
LOS Reviews Emerson, Lake And Palmer-Tarkus-Song
Before you all get the wrong impression,I'm reviewing the song "Tarkus"(which is twenty minutes long),not the entire album. Why am I doing it? Because ELP is the most pretentious prog rock band in history. Apparently the punk movement started because of bands like them. I'm gonna review the song as I listen.
OK. I'm gonna press "play" now. Hope Youtube doesn't buffer(which may be a good thing). OK. I hear a synth "wah" noise,that sounds kinda neat. This can't be too bad. Then come the drums and guitars and more synths. Why did this have to be a twenty minute long song? It would have worked fine as a three minute long song. More synths. They dominate this song. More synths. God,when will something interesting happen? Ugh. I'm getting bored already. If this is what the-wait. Yay! Youtube's buffering! This is the only time I'd thank Youtube for that. Okay. Now it's going again. When will the synths go away? I want something interesting to happen! Oh. I hear a bass. There might be some hop
Raised Again (Chapter 10)After the bathing incident, things seemed different between Rachel and myself. I couldn’t tell exactly what it was, but there was something more…mature about her. She was behaving less like a girl playing house with a baby doll, and more like a real and responsible mother. For the rest of that day, whenever I had an accident, she never teased me or laughed, but rather easily and gently cleaned me and changed me. Whenever I fell asleep, I would wake up in her arms, cradled comfortably. Why was she suddenly so different than before? I couldn’t really tell why…but I sure did appreciate it. When the night came, I slept more comfortably than I had in a long time.
Upon waking up, Rachel lifted me out of the crib and fed me the disgusting material that she referred to as baby food. Did I really eat this stuff when I was a baby? I couldn’t imagine a dog having to eat it, to be truly honest. Never the less, I couldn’t control my suckling reflex, and wheneve

NAME GAME -- SaLilli (FMA OCs) Oneshot~*~*~
A sea of dark blue hung above the bustling city of Central. The lights from the buildings and late-night stores were lit up in order for the tourists and locals in the areas to walk along the sidewalk. It was best to go about their business safely and not collide into objects in the benightedness and refrain from being assaulted without warning.
It was what the townspeople had grown accustomed to. Besides, who would distract themselves with staring up say the dark sky above then while straining their eyes to make out a few faint stars, that continued to be overwhelmed by the man-made lights filtering from below on Earth.
A sleak, black vehicle sped down the streets until it was free of the traffic within the city. The young man behind the wheel released an exasperated sigh, grimacing as he caught sight of his reflection in the mirror. Raven-black locks, which were originally slicked back in an orderly fashion that day, were now a shaggy, ruffled mop. All the while, deep, c
The White Mare - PrologueShe should have been terrified. She should have been curled into a gangly little ball of whimpering, trembling fear and defeat on the ground. This was the sort of thing pegasus foals usually had nightmares about, to have dropped out of the nest like a baby bird.
But she wasn't afraid, and it was as much from being on the ground as anything that made everything feel righter than it had ever felt in her entire young life. The earth was solid beneath her hooves, not insubstantial like the clouds she'd grown up on, but there was still a welcoming softness beneath her tread.
All around her there was music, the songs of birds and the gentle hush of the breeze rustling the leaves of the trees, so different than the harsh whistle or the empty roar of the winds of her lofty home in the sky.
And the colors! The cloud of butterflies that had miraculously cushioned her fall had dispersed like a thousand pastel colored jewels, fluttering to and fro among the countless flowers adorning the sw
Shifu's second love 9Shifu gave the honor and bowed to You and Me
Shifu: I am Master Shifu! How can I help you?
You: *bowed* I am Master You!
Me: And I am Master Me!
Po: *calmed down* Oh, now I understand you! Your name is You! Ha ha ha! I'm such an idiot!
Shifu: *rolled his eyes* I never doubted!
Po: *pouted* Heyyyyyyy!
You: I'm looking for Mistress Shory!
Po: *looked at him seriously* Sorry, old man. But Mistress Shory is already taken!
Shifu: *growled* PO!
Po: What? He wants to take your beloved away!
You: *coughed* Eche.. Eche... I'm her father!
Po: Oh, I'm sorry! Master Shifu, you'll have a father in law! Awesome!
Shifu: *growled* Panda, stop it!
Po: Ok, Ok!
You: Have I understood father in law? Will you get married?
Po: Yeah, they are getting married! Tomorrow!
Shifu: What? PO!
Po: *whispered* You will thank me later, Master!
Po: Oh, Master Shifu is so shy! He He He *whispered* Go back into the hall and make Shory a marriage proposal!

YGA: False Pretense 5Once I was convinced I had washed the glitter out of my hair and off my body, I exited the shower and dried myself. I dressed quickly and got the tuxedo on with no problem. A knock on my door broke the silence I was enjoying.
“May I come in?” Cloud asked.
“Yeah, I’m decent,” I answered.
My adoptive father opened the door and smiled once he saw that I was dressed. I fished out some hair product while he admired the suit.
“You’re looking sharp. I’m sure Jacey will swoon once she sees you,” Cloud joked. I rolled my eyes as I tamed my naturally messy blond hair.
“James nailed the measurements,” I replied.
“He’s the family’s personal tailor for a reason,” Cloud commented as he walked to the mirror. He inspected my hair and messed it up again.
“Hey!” I snapped as I moved back instinctively. Cloud pulled me closer and planted his hands on my shoulders.
“You’re going to prom, not a
A Strange ReunionOne week after auditions, and I landed a pretty big role in the musical! The show opens in five weeks, so I’ve already started working on line memorization and preliminary blocking for my scenes. The goal is to have them down pat by the 2-week mark and spend the rest of the time refining and adjusting the choices I made. The line work would be easy since I memorize things pretty easily; it’s the blocking that’s going to be the challenge. It’s not easy being an actor.
College has been going well, too. My grades haven’t suffered much from my absence, but I still have a bit of work to make up if I don’t want to fail. Kay loves being at college, too. I see her all the time making new friends and surprising everyone she meets when she decides to wear Konan’s body.
Anyway, the other day I woke up, showered and got ready to make breakfast. As I was getting out the ingredients for an omelet, Kay walked in the kitchen, still having Konan’s body fr
A Night With Smoke
Smoke was once again my safeguard on the way back to his room. I could tell that he was looking for Sub-Zero, but I didn't want for him to. I liked Sub-Zero, but not like this. This is not how I had portrayed him. The seriousness I could understand, but the douchbag-gery I couldn't. What the hell went up his ass?
"It's a bit safer now, considering the other Lin Kuei members are sleeping," Smoke said slowly, occasionally looking around. "But you could never be too sure of things."
"Hmm..." I replied, staring at his feet again.
"...Are you hungry again? It's been awhile since you've eaten."
"I'm fine..." I whimpered.
There was a brief silence besides our footsteps hitting the clear marble floor. Why was I so concerned over how Sub-Zero saw me anyhow? I had been wondering this my whole life, only it wasn't just towards Sub-Zero...it was towards my mother, my classmates, my teacher, everybody who had some kind of association with me. Was I so much of an exasperation that even a video game
Shifu's second love 10The next day, the whole village was invited to the wedding. Po was Shifu's best man and Tigress was Shory's.
Shifu: *wearing his green robe, just like from the movie 2*
Po: Master Shifu! Everything is prepared. The wedding begin!
Shifu: *sighed* Very good , Panda! Let's go!
The wedding was in the arena, where Po was chosen to the dragon warrior. Mantis was the pastor. Shory waiting for Shifu . She wore a red dress me gold stripes. Shifu came to her and stood beside her.
Mantis: I'll be brief, Master Shifu ! Do you want to enter into marriage with Mistress Shory?
Shifu: I do!
Mantis: Acha, Shory do you want to go with Master Shifu in marriage?
Shory: I do!
Mantis: Here you are now husband and wife! You can kiss your wife, Master Shifu!
Shifu kissed Shory and all the guests applauded.
Po: *started to cry* Buuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaah... My master is grown up!
You: *started to cry too* Buuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaah... My girl is grown up!
Me: Oh, man! What wimps!
Shifu and Shory lived happy and satisfi
