THE RACIAL ETHICS OF......TROLL!!!!

Every now and again I get shit bored and disappear into World Of Warcraft for a while - just to play the trail and have a bit of a laugh for a bit - it's all good fun!

One thing I have noticed about WOW is the great racial stereotypes that crop up. Now any fantasy fan knows that Dwarves are all OF COURSE Welsh... why is this? I guess the mining connection has something to do with it...I guess. It was the same in Lord Of The Rings.



But why are trolls over the top clichés of a Jamaican? Why "ayy mon, whot yoo dooin' mon"? I swear I once heard a troll saying "I dunno mon like I was-a tinkin' aboot cookin' up some-a chicken an-a raaas"...I may have imagined it though.

Did they possibly consult Jim Davidson and his well loved (but not seen so much since the 80s) character "Chalky"?


The same as I think George Lucas consulted for Jar-Jar Binks. Or maybe Vicky Pollard?

"insert video clip here of Vicky Pollard with new black boyfriend that I can only find on youtube in Polish"

Hmm....?

THE BUDDHA LOOPHOLE

As most of you will know by now I bring up religion quite often here - mostly because I feel that the world has the wrong approach towards it and even the most open-minded people can indulge in behavior that would make a WW2 Nazi blush towards, say for example, Muslims.

I'm not FOR any religion and I don't believe in any religion but I am for the tollerance of all religions. I think people should be given the freedom to believe in whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt or conflict with anyone else. And by conflict I think also people should be able to do what they want. For example....wanna wear a burqa at school or at your job? Why not! It's not hurting anyone. Wanna build a mosque somewhere - go for it! Lets get a church, a Jewish temple and a Buddhist temple up there as well, why not!  - Wanna moan about it? Get real and get with the 21st century - the world is shrinking, get over it. I don't have to go to or be associated with these places if I don't want to and neither do you, let those that do get on with it. In peace.



So anyway - Just been studying religion for the 2nd time (at a higher level this time) and the books description of Buddhism upsets me. Because I think it's wrong. Because of all the "religions" I like Buddhism the best (let be fair, no gods, no masters, it's a philosophy, not a religion) - but only in it's pure form, not the form that involves human beings putting drinks beside statues and praying. Lets get real! Buddha was a man (so we're led to believe, and there is enough evidence) - he did nothing super human, he did not talk with gods, in fact he never claimed anything other than being a human and spoke AGAINST gods.... he did not walk on water, shoot lazers from his eyes, defeat Zod or anything super human - he just sat down one day and came up with some good ideas. Simple as that. Anything that came afterwards in the form of monks and nuns and "rules" (other than the simple guidelines he laid down...which you can or cannot chose to follow) is just humans messing about.



ANYWAY...my whole point... is that according to my religion book Buddhists, like Hindus, want to be reincarnated into a better state and eventually get out of the cycle of reincarnation and go up to "nirvana".

Bollocks.

If the whole point of living on earth was to just gratify yourself and get more money and status and eventually go up to a magical place - it defeats the whole concept in the first place... also. It implies that Buddha found a way to reach Nirvana.

Lets examine this: If he did, he was the first one through the door! How did he come back and tell others about it? "Yup! That worked!". Also if this was the case, why are there later reincarnations of Buddha? Obviously it didn't work!


This proves that that is not the point of Buddhism - but in fact it was a very early form of punk-rock-ism where by we deny the media-fed lies and discover our own selves and set ourselves free by figuring out the truth in life. Once our minds are free and we accept the truths such as:

We will get sick
We will get old
We will die.

We can get on with life in a better way. Simple as that.

Yo deseo comprar un libro de la frase y diccionario de englis-español

School is over! I did good...ish, I got through it anyway, what am I doing now? Well it's summer....so I thought it was best if I learnt Spanish. Yeah...in my situation I can't afford to go trying to find a summer job in a student town where everyone else has one already set up, so if I study I can at least eat (kinda)

I found this box today in an old closet, some kind of puzzle....I wonder what it does?

LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!

FUCK YEAH! - All school work done apart from a few simple dribs and drabs that I could fart out in my sleep. Three of four courses passed (the fourth is in the bag just not got the results yet) - everything over, OVERKILL on the stereo - feels good!

What to do now?

Work my way through "101 Horror Films You Must See Before You Die"? Seen most of 'em anyway!



Try and make a baby with Mrs.Elk? My experiments to make one in the lab are not going well...



Saving grace this week - CROM! Any band named after the legends in CONAN rocks for me. There are a few bands called CROM, but it's this one:



That is THE SHIT! Go listen HERE - and get into it!

THE TIME BANDITS TURNED TO CRIME BECAUSE...

Some of you might remember this post HERE all about little-person Warwick Davies - better known as Willow, Wicket the Ewok, the leprachaun and everyone in Harry Potter and the Narnia franchise.

Thing is this bloke owns a talent angency for the little folk yet it's only ever him you see in films, sometimes taking up several roles.

Well, the wee one is to be the star in the NEW (you read that..new!) Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant sitcom "Life is Short". A sort of mockumentary about Warick playing (of course) a bitter twisted version of himself.

I've bought cheese crunchers, the code red is in the fridge, I'm on the sofa....it's just to wait for the DVD to come out now. I fucking love everything the Gervais puts out (hmmm.....Ghost Town aside) and can't wait.

OSAMA BIN LADENS SECRET SWAT FILE!

Read about this in the Swedish Newspaper Aftonbladet yesterday (taken from a British newspaper)

...a secret file that made it possible to identify and locate Bin Laden.

Apparently he has brown hair, brown eyes, possibly a beard, was born in Saudi Arabia, is 54 years old and looks like this:



 THAT WAS ABOUT IT!

Why didn't they just use fucking GOOGLE!

ELECTRIC MESSIAH

About 1994 or something I was in this punk band called YELLOWSKIN - we never did anything apart from a few demos and gigs, or actually as I learned years later HOUSEHOLD NAME RECORDS would have signed us if they could have only contacted us......

Anyway I was listening to a demo tonight and I wrote this song way back then and listening to the lyrics now....it's like I predicted the future! Or at least not 100% because I thought if everyone just lived their own computer experience everyone would gain individuality........but anyway, read on!

I have a theory on all life
About the planet's population
The youth of today
Can be saved by isolation
We can lock them all away
For generations
Plug them into computer world
For their only sensation

Worship your TV screen
The new messiah has been seen
Mandatory Technology
For me

When they come out life will be different
Everybody individual
Street have been untouched for years
Crime is unhabitual
Fuck monarchy, fuck your heroes
Can't you see this is modern day
We have e-mail-digital-filofax
The rest have no place

Scary huh!



yup, that's me back in the day!

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!

Religious nut-job Harold Camping (pictured below scaring children in a 16th-century wood carving) has placed the end of the world to...this Saturday at 6pm.

The 89-year old's predictions are based probably around that the fact he also also predicted the rapture in 1994 and figured he might not be around in 2011 for everyone to point and laugh at him...again.



So if you want to go get baptised, now is your chance!

Everyone else, see you Sunday morning.

DID YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT RANCID?

Gather round me children and I'll tell you a story about your uncle Steve when he and I were in our early 20s and the punk rock you know today was still young.

Its was like, 96 or something like that and American punk bands had started to invade the UK and our ears and record collections. This band called RANCID were coming to Bristol, personally I didn't go because I thought this about Rancid:


I think that's Tim and Lars there...anyway so, they were playing in Bristol and my mate Steve full of joy went to see the show - at quite a small venue, Rancid at the time being still not so well known.

So, after the show and he's hanging at the bar when who should walk up but Lars Fredriksen. The two get to chatting and Lars invites my mate Steve backstage for a beer and a chat (stranger things have happened, one time my mate Steve went round a pub saying "Alright there Dave" to random people...when I caught up with him later that night he had 4 new friends...all called Dave).

So, where we lived, Clevedon had no busses from Bristol home late at night so...Steve's mum had to come pick him up from the show, she was walking around outside looking for him and approached a suspect looking Punk-Rawker and asked "have you seen my son?" To which Tim Armstrong turned round and said "Hey lady, I'll be your son"...the two got chatting (stranger things have happened with Steve's mum...) and in sympathy Tim Armstrong invited Steve's mum backstage to look for her son.

Although this happened a little bit before Steve got backstage...so when he finally DID get backstage, really excited to be going backstage to meet Rancid. who is there?

Rancid...and his Mum.

Awesome - Elk Out.

SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL! I'M SO EXCITED!!!!

I fucking LOVE Sweden Rock Festival!

Why? Well because all the glam rockers, poser rockers, t-shirt rockers and dinosaur rockers fuck off out of town for a week!

It's heaven!

Elk out.

WARRIORS...COME OUT TO PLAY-AY!

Is it true that musician/director ROB ZOMBIE


will be making a re-make of the great 1979 classic THE WARRIORS?


After his latest planned film Tyrannosaurus Rex seems to be taking 10000 years to come out we'll wait and see...tipped for the lead role? Fucking ZAKK WYLDE, good idea? Yeah maybe, why not!


I'd be first in line for that one!

GRINDCORE FOR THE PEOPLE

Came across this wicked little video on yootoobz a few days ago.

One of the old "Hard N Heavy" vids (you know it's good as they use "N" instead of "and") based around "grindcore"....not actually a lot of grindcore on it mind you but a good deal of other great bands.



Pretty much all the Earache Records bands from the early 90s/late 80s, Napalm Death, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Godflesh, Bolt Thrower, Carcass and more. Sadly it's "Harmony Corruption" era Napalm so not a lot of action there (they still oddly talk about themselves as if they were in their grind days though) - but the bits with Bolt Thrower and Carcass are mighty - plus me and Mrs.Elk came across Prophecy Of Doom who we decided were awesome!

Great to discover this and realise a lot of where I have taken my influences, not only musically but as in what I think a band should be about - too much "whoooo rock and roll!" bores me and I need some more reason behind the music. Prophecy Of Doom were totally on the ball with this!

Anyhooo - go looky, it's awesome!

EVOLUTION OF AN APE-MAN

Looks a bit like this at Elk's Cave just now:


This week has seen four big tests at school, history, nature sciences, religion and tomorrow the biggy in biology - why do I get myself into these things? Well, yup, it's because I don't want to be a 30-something or even a 40-something dumbass!


Sure I gots the street smarts and I can argue my way out of a steel box but when it comes to just a decent regular education I am fucked! Well, I was, now at least I have quite a bit under my belt! The battle-plan? Become a teacher and even from there go into teaching/helping out younger people with problems, maybe correctional institutions and so on or kids with OCD, tourettes, ADHD - basically those who might not get a chance otherwise.


Studying evolution and all the different strains and species I can see why Creationism became so popular.
Q: "why is..?" A: "God". Q: "But what about..?" A: "God!" see, easy!


Well, time to get back at it...know where I would rather be...


SOUNDTRACK: FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM - DAWNRAZOR

I WANNA BE A ZOMBIE! ZOMBIE, ZOMBIE, ZOMBIE!

Ever had one of those days when you just have to be a zombie?


COTZ in all their zombi-glory! Good stuff!

BOMBUS & SPIDERS IN BORÅS

It's possibly the best gig to happen in Borås so far - I'm really pepped for this one!

Was trying to get BOMBUS to play at my old club many times but the timing was just never right - but now it's happening!






If you're in the area get down to VIVA on saturday (may 14th) to catch this one!

Check out more here!

HAVE YOU BOUGHT MY BOOK YET?

If you enjoy reading my blogs you might be interested to know (if you do not already) that I have wrote not 1, not 2 but THREE books!

I would really recommend my latest to you if you like that kind of thing - it's called SECOND PLACE HEROES and it's a true story about myself and the band I played with in the UK between 1996-2003. It was a punk band that started off in a basement and ended up playing in Japan, Norway and all over the UK in front of thousands.

It's also filled with bands and people/places of the time and also has some of those people chipping in with the writing - amongst the list are: CAPDOWN, KING PRAWN, SNUFF, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND, LOST PROPHETS, 4 FT FINGERS, GASH, MUTE CONCLUSION, MR.SHIRAZ, NATURE LIVING, THE SETBACKS, LATE 98 and many more!

I'd pass it on to any young musician that wants an insight into the real climb uphill and what it's like to be in a band with a record deal and all the trimmings - or to anyone in the scene at the time to recognise yourself!


Some of the things said about it:


"PERFECTLY WRITTEN - HAD ME CROUCHED OVER LAUGHING"

"AN ALL-TOO-REAL YET HILARIOUSLY WRITTEN ACCOUNT OF WHAT IT'S REALLY LIKE TO BE IN A MID-LEVEL BAND. IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN IN A BAND, READ THIS, YOU'LL SEE YOURSELF ON EVERY PAGE. IF YOU WANT TO BE IN A BAND, READ IT AND LEARN THE TRUTH BEHIND THE GLAMOUR!"

"IF YOU WERE IN THIS SCENE AT THIS TIME THEN YOU NEED THIS BOOK!"

"FREAKING AWESOME, A RIVETING READ!"

So yup - you can get it from ZOMBIE ATTACK DISTRO (JUST CLICK HERE) or direct from this link HERE

Treat yourself (oh, and it might help me buy something to eat!)

I MADE YOUR SCENE SUCKS


Well - it's pretty close!

Check out YOURSCENESUCKS for more funny!

PAY NO MORE THAN £3.00

Just rocking out to THIS record:



And remembering the time when I bought it - guess it must have been 1988 or 1987. Myself and my two friends would catch the bus down to the next town to visit the record store (the only one that sold rock records at the time) and buy all the records of the day, Megadeth, Metallica etc.

I think they must have had more pocket money (allowance) than me...either that or I had bought something else that day and bought this record SUBHUMANS EP/LP purely because it was the only thing I could afford at the time.

Awesome stuff - I remember being quite taken aback by it, I had only heard a few punk bands before such as Dead Kennedys and Amebix - this was great, one of my first kicks into punk rock and the DIY ethic, English punk and a political/social outlook.

Fast forward about 10 years or so and I'm playing pool at the Porter Butt in Bath with Dick the singer and telling him this same story (apart from the bit about playing pool with him, that would have just been odd).

UNWANTED VISITORS IN THE NIGHT

The spiders have gone - but a mouse has replaced them, or possibly mice! At least that's what I presume it is. I came home from the UK to find porridge grains scattered all over the floor and the box nibbled through - small mouse poos on the floor and in the drawers, and right now even I can hear a scraping from somewhere behind my fridge.

I found a mouse trap the day I moved and thought "pfffft, won't ever need that" and threw it away. Now I'm trying to lure him into a metal JD tin propped up with a matchstick using Coco-Pops as bait. I presume mice like Coco-Pops.

Just finished the first of four major tests this week - History, check. Religion, Nature Sciences and Biology to go - fuck a duck!



Support this week comes from intense listenings to OUTRAGE and OKKULTOKRATI - ithankyouverymuch.

BEHIND THE WALL OF SLEEP

How much difference summer makes to a boy like me with OCD, probably SAD and I dunno, as many other things as you can have that get in the way of just having an awesome time.

Thing is, as soon as summer comes it's so much easier to have an awesome time right! Really can feel the possibilities no matter what happens.

Maybe that's life's secret . just keep getting your awesome on no matter what eh, fuck what might go wrong and just say "oh well" and get on with it.

WWBSD?


Cliche as it sounds, and you've heard it again and again I'm sure - awesome breeds awesome and shit breeds shit. I am rushing downhill towards 40 now and still like to think I live my life as I have chosen - I wanted a life that's just studying, playing noisy music in a band, hanging out with friends, enjoying lots of time with my amazing lady and laughing my self to sleep every night thinking "what a fucking great day" - it happens! No matter what else, I'm there.

Today was a nice day in school . got to go out to the lake and research all the various life there - what does The Elk do? Off with the socks and shoes and right in there - lets 'ave it!

BOYS (AND GIRLS) OF SUMMER

Summer is finally here in Sweden and hellz yeahz does it feel good!

Me and Mrs.Elk have been checking out the local area where we will soon live, especially the little pockets of nature here and there - looks nice huh!



And of course, as soon as the sun comes out, I immediately start wanting to get the skateboard out again - so, we took a little trip to one of the local skateparks to check it out - I'm a fucking old man now, nothing like I used to be when I was a wee 'un but in enough shape to ride a half pipe at least, that's cool!







Of course, Mrs.Elk gets a go too - and she rocked it!


Get your summer on good folk!

Sound track to the weekend:

BURZUM - BELUS
OUTRAGE - MY FINAL DAY
NEIL YOUNG - GREATEST HITS

LEAVE THE 80S WHERE THEY LAY, THERE ARE NO LESSONS YOU CAN TAKE...

Most of my digs at the NWOEGRROB (New Wave Of Eighties Glam Rock Rip Off Bands) is how in 2011 we should have a very different attitude towards sexism. No longer should the "rock chick" be merely a coat hanger while the men go and watch the bands - we even have women IN bands these days! Back in the 80s women were merely a thing to dance round in underwear in glam rock videos or pose next to the band in photos.

See my recent post on a few pages in KERRANG! I found with Judas Priest - HERE. Priest fans are also to go over and check out 138's blog HERE where he is doing a lot of JP themed posts of late.

So how far have we come? I can still find records of bands like Hardcore Superstar releasing albums called stuff like "open your legzz" (probably) with suggestive women on the cover. But after that famed Judas Priest article in Kerrang! back in the 80s the letters page in the next issue was in fact filled with people complaining! Rock fans were smart! Girls and guys wrote in saying that they didn't want Kerrang! to turn into a tabloid paper of a porno, they liked it all about music....what went wrong eh.

I took the liberty of browsing through the next few issues to bring you some more typical pages from the days:


I doubt anyone would have batted an eyelid back in the day at this, of course the album is called "Nice 'n' Dirty" and has a single called "Woman" on it with a picture of two 80s chick just moments away from some scissor action.



Ian Gillan - Of course he's just hanging out with some girls in animal masks with their tits out, what else does he do with his days?

It's a bit like just how KISS lived back in the day...




That's EXACTLY how it was!

...lets leave the 80s where they were eh.

DALLAS WART FACE!

With the CRYPT OF THE ZOMBILORD recording in the bag I really couldn't be more chuffed! Those who know me or follow what I write might know that in 2009 I "resigned" from playing music. My band at the time, LUCIEN was fun to play in but wasn't really giving me what I wanted, I felt I was getting too old (especially after a very Spinal Tap "lean back and play a solo and can't get up again" moment), that coupled with the fact that after watching the ANVIL movie I decided that I never wanted to end up like that (Mrs.Elk laughed a lot when I told her that this morning) and I decided to go back to school instead.

A while later I had fun jamming with Arr' Lad Kristoffer and what was to be (hope it still will be!) the band THINK FAST, he managed to get me enthusiastic about playing music again and when I finally met Fredrik (the dreadlocked crusty looking guy I kept seeing round town that I knew I would end up talking to one day) and he invited me into a new band he was forming I thought I might as well take a shot at it, just for fun.

Turns out that CRYPT OF THE ZOMBILORD became exactly what I have been wanting to do for many years - I've always wanted to play in a fast grindcore/crust style band and just thrash it out relentlessly along with some guys who love doing the same stuff and to also get things done at a reasonable pace. All those years I played in Mr.Zippy (the UK punk band who got kinda famous) it was fun but I was always having to explain to people that "I play in this kind of band, but I like THIS kind of music" and make apologies for my band mates not really "getting it".

So, I guess this is where I've always wanted to be! Hopefully there will be some gigs soon, I'm really toying with the idea of SEND MORE PARAMEDICS style zombie-make-up on stage, will have to see if the other guys are game!

Anyway - here is a nice cheapy DIY vid I made last night, enjoy, leave a comment of praise, hate or indifference!

ANVIL - THE HEAVY METAL JONAS BROTHERS

Few years ago when ANVIL played in Sweden the audience looked like this:


(That's the dude from Nifelheim in the middle there)

This year when they play I would imagine it would look a bit like this:


Why...because they have had a film made about them. In all fairness to the band - well done. But....yup...you know what I'm saying and it's more a poke at the audiences that will watch and not the actual band.

I have spoken!!!!

CRYPT OF THE FUCKING MIXED AT LAST!

The Zombi's plus Mad Kim have finally sat long enough to mix the CRYPT OF THE ZOMBILORD 7"

BIN LADEN DEAD - WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

As regular readers will know, I am not a supporter of Islam and especially not of Jihad but I am also not a supporter of stupid presidents and armies, war and dumb ignorance causing a lot more trouble.


So they say that Bin Laden has been caught and killed? Strange how every time a US president seems to get into some sort of trouble a "look, over there!" situation comes up - not a few days ago I was reading about the doubts over the authenticity of Barak Obama's citizenship...and suddenly, LOOK OVER THERE!

Questions - if the worlds most hunted person was caught and killed....why no solid proof? Like a dead body pic would be nice right? But no, no, buried at sea! At SEA? Run that one by me once again....you killed him and then went all that way out to the sea to dump the body with no proof? Fucking odd if you ask me!

Two - they did a DNA test on him to prove it. Now....there was a special squat team sent out but at the same time this would imply that they had the methods to test the DNA, plus a sample of Bin Laden's DNA on them...just in case.

This is just a few things that make it sound a but suspect.


So - All of America out to celebrate. To celebrate what exactly? They have allegedly killed the "leader", they guy behind 9/11 - NO! If America had never got involved in the first place and sent over all their meatheads with guns to stir it all up then this would have never been an issue to start with! If you poke a dog with a stick it will bite! Simple as that.

What will happen now? Will all the Muslims in the world suddenly vanish, the burqas will melt, their skin will become white and they will embrace Christianity? Hmm....nope that's not what's gonna happen is it. If anything the Al-Qaeda will strike back with more force than ever, it's not going to suddenly get rid of all terrorist problems over the world, it's just going to make it worse. Idiots.


You main problem is not/was not Bin Laden, it's not even Al-Qaeda, it's all the shit surrounding the religious conflicts to start of with, you need to attack and destroy the roots, not clip the flowers.

Bin Laden was not the enemy, the ignorance and blind hate of the people is the enemy, the blindly being lead by a religion - be it Islamic Jihad or Christian wars is the enemy. The thought of fighting violence with violence is the enemy. Dancing in the streets to celebrate the victory is an empty wish. America would be best to go underground now and wait for the next attack, and quite possibly WW3.


Well done meat heads - you've done it again. Fuck yeah, USA.

VICTIMS @ TRUCKSTOP

Mrs.Elk turned 31 yesterday so we had a great day out in the sun in Borås, a small walk to check out how far our new apartment is from town and then in to Gothenburg to sit out in the park knocking down as many beers as possible.

Went to a nice house party of a couple who's names I forgot, but I did find an ABIGAIL demo and a WINDS OF GENOCIDE demo there, good stuff!

Then is was off to Truckstop Alaska, a club I have heard much about but never witnessed - awesome place! Great little punk club with an amazing atmosphere and best of all, cheap beer!

MIASMAL were up first, great basic death metal stuff - worth checking out.

VICTIMS came on and did their thing, has been a few years since I have seen them, forgot Gareth who was once in RAGING SPEEDHORN had joined the band! Awesome set, just as expected - highlight "Lies, Lies, Lies" of course  - much drunkeness and asleep on a mate's sofa with Mrs.Elk like two kittens, curled up round each other as usual.

More of this please!

The best pics I managed to grab:


Sharez it fukko!
