I think most of those topics are interesting, but I do remember you saying something about being an artist. It would be awesome to see some of your work later on down the road if possible. =)

Flavor of the week, you gotta check these dudes out, even though they're deathcore, they're something incredible.

Plus the vocalist is kind of black but not really, I can't tell what he is from the photo on myspace.

@luke-I might touch about the sceamo kids in Metal Now and Then. And Thanks for the Flavor. I've been actually listening to Pained in Exile for a while now.
@Mamba-Oh, I like to paint/draw but I'm far too embarassed to show them here. I'm my worst critic.
@bicyclepirate-Thanks for the comment and I hope you stick around!

I've discussed the difference between racism and nationalism to many people, even speaking outside of metal terms. Oftentimes, the two are used interchangeably and it's because many enter a nationalistic viewpoint with racism on the mind. It's like how a lot of Viking metal fans become Odinists, some getting entrenched in that subtle/not-so-subtle racial superiority brainwashing. Nationalism is being proud of your country and heritage, racism is thinking your race and likely your country and heritage along with it, are the elite. This automatically oppresses others due to them instantly becoming sub-par (or sub-human) in your eyes, since you'd view yourself as superior, the cream of the crop. Yet, when nationalists get too out of control with their politics, nationalism can easily turn into racism.
