    what's up I.S.o.S.? Vader is good stuff! How's life?

    Yeah, I'm not a Taake fan, and I barely like Tsjuder. I used to be a fan of both, so occasionally I'll listen to them for old time's sake. Anyhow, I do like Spellgoth, so I'm biased. Did you get one of those exclusive Horna shirts? They seemed to have sold out pretty quickly. I didn't go on Thursday, which is when I think they sold out.

    I didn't know Éphémère had anything released yet! Oh well. I just bought a bunch of shirts. The sound was super shitty this year, except for Taake and Tsjuder... I was mostly there for Sargeist, Horna, Megiddo, and Délétère, in that order. If I can get a convoy of friends going, I may go to MDF this year!

    Greetings! It has been a while since we have chatted. I hope you are doing good. Have you ever heard of Oh Sleeper or Becoming The Archetype? You may find them worth a listen. Have a great day!

    Mmm. I live in Boston, we have a pathetic metal scene. Montreal is the nearest decent Black Metal scene, and I really love métal noir québécois. One of my favourite performances at MdMII was Sortilegia - I'm a really big fan of theirs, plus the guitarist/vocallist is a friend of mine. Sylvus is great, as well. Anyway, glad you've discovered the greatness of their scene! And yes, it was disappointing that Mgła and Darkspace cancelled, but I did get to see Mgła when they finally came in March. Fucking awesome. Tak kurwa jest!

    Ahhh. I have friends up there, so I used the first MdM as an excuse to go meet them. It turned out to be fucking awesome. Forteresse was cancelled due to some ANTIFA bullshit, someone accusing them of being NSBM... But demand for them was so great that they finally went on, and the crowd went insane haha. The most intense crowd I've seen. And regarding the webzine name - easy to remember is best! That really goes for any site or publication name at all.

    Wow! that sounds pretty difficult, but awesome! This semester I'm taking five courses. I'm not particularly excited about two of them: Dynamics and Chemistry. But I'm quite enjoying the other three: Calculus III (I don't know if it's the same for you, but we're supposed to learn line and surface integrals and Green's, Stokes's and Gauss' Theorems), Electromagnetism I, and Metrology.

    Hi! I haven't got the time to listen to your recommendations because of school :( and I started wondering, what Math and/or Physics courses are you currently taking?

    septembre 2012
  • marthz

    I see you have a few scrobbles from Ihsahn, have you listened to his new album? I'm a newbie to black metal, but I'm really really digging that stuff. About those mexican bands, I haven't heard any of them, except for Hocico... shame on me! By the way, I noticed I deleted you by mistake or something, it has happened before, I hope you don't mind me adding you as a friend again, gulp!

    Hello! Thank you, I'll check it out for sure. And I'll think of something to recommend to you, are you interested in a genre in particular?

    I do like the new Lunar Aurora, not as good as andacht, though its alot calmer and not as dark to me. My favs from them would have to be Andacht and Elixer of Sorrow. Oh I totally understand not having time for it (hyperblast) let me know if you do start it up again. always had some interesting reviews (Deathspell omega, blut aus nord, endstille). I barely have time to play instruments myself anymore due to job and family. Used to be in a death metal band in early 90s (debauchery) the best we did was a demo and a track on King Fowley(deceased) cd compilation. I'll have to check out your band some time I.s.o.s. Any starting points or samples tracks to listen to around.

    Thanks for the add. You were the cleric on hyperblast, right? You had some great reviews. Got me to listen to deathspell omega. Any plans to bring back hyperblast?

    Greetings! Well perhaps you haven't been on here for a while since my shouts are the last ones posted. I do apologize for being away so long. At some point I will review all of our comments (I have yet to read all of yours from June) and I would like to resume our discussion. Have a great day!

    ...says is found to be inconsistent with what is known, then both Christianity and the bible need to be (figuratively and literally) thrown in the trash. Now to answer your question, what I meant was what faith/belief system/religion (however you want to put it) was Jesus (I assume he is the "heretic" you are referring to) a heretic related to? That is what I meant by orthodoxy. Have a great day and I look forward to your response!

    I am not engaging in flattery or anything disingenuous when I say I really enjoy chatting with you. I get on lastfm infrequently, but have deliberately NOT gotten on here the past few days for one reason. I knew you would likely have replied AND I knew I would have to think about my response. You are a formidable antagonist. I left my comments on Friday because I saw your comments in a friends shoutbox and decided I would "stir the pot" a bit. A couple more things that I appreciate about you: you are not afraid to ask a question, you are not afraid to say what you think, and you don't resort to vitriol, invective, and ad hominem attacks when someone disagrees with you. That is refreshing! Now, regarding your recent shout, logic and God have EVERYTHING to do with each other. One does not have a true faith in God if he has to "check his brain at the door." If one's faith (in my case Christianity as laid out in the bible) cannot withstand intense scrutiny and if what...

    juin 2011
  • Eyete

    First, faith and logic are not antithetical. Second, I was asking a question. The "heretic" Judas Iscariot assisted in silencing-related to which orthodoxy was he a heretic?

    juin 2011
  • Eyete

    I destroy faith. Spreading the power of logic. (Quite illogical) Judas Iscariot was a hero. He assisted in silencing the heretic. (Heretical as related to what orthodoxy?)

    Do you know Douglas Sweetser? You should definitely check him out. He has the best Unified Gravity-Electromagnetism proposals I have ever seen and he makes fun shows about it.

    Have you ever studied Coding Theory in any mathematical depth (transmission channel noise models, error detection/correction...Shannon, Hamming...)?

    Ah LaTeX is just a typesetting system, it's more akin to a markup language than a programming language. I use the graphical frontend LyX to write LaTeX documents all the time though, it's much, much nicer. I know LaTeX (and I can give you some good intro documents on it if you want), but 99% of the time I use LyX because it's much easier, you hardly have to know LaTeX. Haskell is another language, not a toolset/program, so you might want to wait until you're un-programming'd-out. Makes sense that it'd be used in industry, even if you have all the background knowledge you still want to use tools that make doing your job faster. Only vaguely relatedly I've been thinking up a similar set of tools for machine assisted translation, might try to work on it this summer a tad, depends on how far I can get with NLP stuff normally.

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    Ah that's pretty neat; I feel like a lot of tools can fail at the interface part unless you spend a lot of time on it. (I guess I'm thinking of lower traditional programming languages like C, since it's much more better suited for systems-level programming.) For my CSE degree I'm going to need to use MATLAB I think; I know the Mechanical engineers are going to and all my CSE-postgrad friends have mentioned MATLAB more than once, so at the very least it's a popular enough tool. From what I can understand MATLAB is better suited for engineering/programming tasks and Mathematica is more targeted for pure or computational mathematics, but it's totally possible that's a false dichotomy I've created in my mind just from the passing experience I have with both. I've heard mention of Sage; I've also heard Octave is pretty nice and comporable to MATLAB. The reason I mentioned Haskell earlier is it's pretty much the ubiquitous mathematical programming languages as far as I can tell.

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    Yeah I kinda agree, I think it helps me be a little more objective. Qbasic and Pascal can both die in a fire, especially Qbasic. C is pretty nice but I definitely wouldn't want to model physical systems in it unless I had to. I have a copy of Mathematica but I haven't installed it yet, worth checking out?

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    haha, I went the other way. Described myself as a secular humanist for a while, I still do, but I'm getting more and more pessimistic, misanthropic, and semi-isolated. I try to do what I can to improve humanity, however. Far too much of a psuedo-hedonist to take that idea to its extreme, however. LabView seems interesting but quite different from what I'm used to. Do you do any traditional (ie, non-graphical) programming? What kind of mathematical modelling? (I guess more specifically, what in particular are you modelling in physics?) Have you ever played with Haskell?

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    But I do basically agree with your point regardless.

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    It's more of a preference thing stemming from minor misanthropy, a dislike of decaying uncleanliness, and emotional ties than anything else. I meant that statement more in the sense of "regardless of a school's origins, if it has good sciences /now/, that's more what matters" rather than what actually came out.

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    Yeah I couldn't afford to commute now. And having trees everywhere and being able to get away from people is pretty helpful. But yeah, I already hardly go out except into town, besides for concerts. Lowell's history is irrelevant to it's standing now anyways, but the point is taken. I've basically heard the same thing about the physics department. Going to grad school at Lowell? Anyways, it's hard to convey how much disdain I have for built up areas.

    I would kill someone if I had to live in the city. Anyways, I've been under the impression that Lowell has better Math and Physics (and CS?), but that Amherst had better Engineering. Overall, I have no idea but I only really care about sciences. Computational linguistics is basically anything in linguistics research that also uses computers. Speech recognition and synthesis, parsers/computational syntax, machine translation, data mining, corpora compilitation, content tagging, automated morphology and lexicon building… it's a pretty broad field.

    décembre 2010
  • Shardzvoskat

    Amherst has better engineering, plus fuck Lowell. I hate cities. Amherst is the closest I can get to living out in the woods for the time being. And I'm taking ling mainly because it's interesting and I know enough CS to do computational linguistics research next year, apparently. Although I do want to move to Fenno-Scandinavia, and linguistics certainly helps with that. What computer stuff? And which serious problems?
