Kathy Griffin has quickly found out how doing something very wrong has some pretty pricey consequences. Please note, this is not a post to harass anyone, including Kathy Griffin. So don’t come on my blog saying i’m being mean or whatever.

Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin apologizes for photo shoot with bloodied Trump mask, says she ‘went too far’

After seeing that photo, it took me a bit to figure out what she has done reading some of the articles and needless to say what Kathy has done was unacceptable. To find this funny you have to be some kind of sick individual to begin with. Shortly after she posted these photos, a whole bunch of people were furious and she knew right away that what she did was wrong, immediately apologized and begged for forgiveness. However, if you are creating a life like head of someone, bloody it, then post it like a barbarian you already know what you are doing. And she thought this was a joke? It seems to me she was pretty serious about wanting Donald Trump dead. Using her comedy routine to vent frustration over Trump being president isn’t exactly the best thing.

Then this happened, Barron Trump Thought Kathy Griffin’s Beheaded Trump Image Was His Dad

Trump family sources tell us Barron was in front of the TV watching a show when the news came on and he saw the bloody, beheaded image. We’re told he panicked and screamed, “Mommy, Mommy!”

As it was put to us, “He’s 11. He doesn’t know who Kathy Griffin is and the head she was holding resembled his dad.”

Melania called out Kathy, saying what she did was disturbing, wrong and “makes you wonder about [her] mental health.”

Could you imagine a kid, having to go through the possibility of one of your parents being dead, murdered no less. Some people also believe Barron is autistic although i couldn’t find any concrete evidence of that.  Trump Family Has ‘Made It Very Clear’ What They Think of Kathy Griffin

If that’s not enough..  ‘He broke me’: A defiant, tearful Kathy Griffin slams attacks by Trump and his family

“I’m not good at being appropriate,” she said. “I’m only good at doing comedy one way. It’s in your face. I’m going to make fun of the president. And I’m going to do it more now.”

Kathy Griffin loses remainder of her tour gigs in wake of Donald Trump severed head scandal after dramatic press conference

Here is the full Kathy Griffin press conference,

After watching the video, she does seem sincere in her apology but at the same time she has some kind of mental illness. Many people won’t forgive her for her misdeeds and that is a big problem in this world today. Not to mention there is a whole lot of hate going around, Kathy and Trump are both catalysts for hate. The masses just follows, it’s basically “hate spreads like wildfire”.

As a Christian, we follow the mindset of forgiving people for their misdeeds, even if they do something really awful such as what Kathy Griffin did. At the same time, we must learn from our mistakes. Some people refuse to learn from their mistakes, such as the transgender activism. They often blame others for their own actions and instead of saying “ok, well people feel really strongly about being against transgender people so we need to talk to the doctor and find another form of treatment besides transitioning” they say and continue to say “your a bigot, you are uneducated, i hope people like you become extinct like the dinosaurs” which again fuels hate and rage. We can’t have some sort of common ground and with the Kathy Griffin scenario, there is a lot of hate being spewed around.

We live in a Godless society where people are doing what they want and ignore the consequences of their actions or their actions affecting other people in a negative way. With the media, slamming Kathy Griffin.. constantly berating Donald Trump there is no way to really see things other than intense hatred. This leads to violence and war. As a Christian we are taught there is a heaven and hell and when we die, we go to the one that we are judged with. What we do in this life will matter in the next. However, today we are living in between heaven and hell, to some it’s heaven, other’s it’s hell. Do we create a heaven here on earth or do we let it fall into the depths of hell? What we do matters!

(sorry for the potato video quality)

I like using the media for showing what i am talking about and what music or tv show can relate to. Shows like NCIS, The Walking Dead, Star Trek has a lot of different lessons.

But some haven’t learned them (i read recently about how people don’t need to respect robots)

The idea that Data is a sentient being is pretty complex. In reality we should be respecting all life, but to some it isn’t possible. They lack the spiritual guidance and chances are they think they are God. Star Trek Voyager revisits this with the Doctor, a hologram that clearly has shown he is a sentient being. Some people may have a saying “Ghost in the Machine”, well there’s a lot we don’t know about energy, about our souls. God created us in his image and i guess we are creating in his image as well.

Here are the songs (yes it’s death metal lol) that reflect the problems society has. If you don’t like the music, you can click on the lyrics. People will interpret the lyrics in different ways. I also added the lyrics to “Pitch Black Progress” by Scar Symmetry because it bears posting on the main page. So you can skip down if you’d like. On the surface the song is mostly towards consumerism, but at the same time it speaks to how our society functions. People don’t think for themselves, if one person sees another doing something, they’ll do the same thing no matter how crazy, stupid or insane it might be. It’s relevant to what this article is about, but at the same time, this article is only scratching the surface. “Pitch Black Progress” speaks to our very existence, what we are doing here with our time on earth. It is very limited and often times we’re on a one track mind. There is so much more to life than to work, watch tv, drink or to hang out, but we limit ourselves. We are caught up in this place called life rushing around to our next job that we don’t think about what we are doing.

Pitch Black Progress

This landscape mechanical
Well-oiled black machinery
Bio-driven computers
Programmed for slave labor

For slave labor!

Structure made in urban design
Kills the evolution of the mind
Marching on a dead end path
With misplaced concentration

It’s a pitch-black progress
It’s a dead end process
It’s a pitch-black progress
No more, no less

Digital temples monitor the population
Supplying the masses with what they see fit
Programming digital dreams for the consumers
A zombie nation devoid of improvisation

[Solo: J. Kjellgren]

Electro-hypnotic messages
Downloaded directly to the brain
Endless chanting subliminal
Hammers down the-will to resist
Progressing into a pitch black future
Leaving behind an analogue past
Promoting all of their new ways
Whatever the cost may be

[Solo: P. Nilsson]

It’s a pitch-black progress
It’s a dead end process
It’s a pitch-black progress
No more, no less

Introducing a pitch-black approach
Taste the horns of the future
Swallow the sulphur of the new order
To resist is to non-exist

I could list more songs but i think this may overload someone’s phone or something lol.

Last but not least here is the lyrics to “Break The Silence” by After Life. The song is about animal abuse but look a little deeper…

Each and every life

On earth has as much right
To be here as you and me
There isn’t a right way
To kill someone who doesn’t want
To die!

People don’t
want to hear
The truth about themselves
Closed and ignorant
We are totally blind

Without compassion
And respect for innocents
Our souls end up in Hell
Indifferent

Time to live thinking about
The struggles of survivors
To make a world free of your lies
Paradise?

Break the silence
We can see our Paradise?
Break the silence
Can we name it a Paradise?
I am the Voice of Voiceless
And i’ll say loudly that isn’t said
I am the Voice of Voiceless
A Voice to scream that isn’t said
End of endless lies…
Blinded innocence

Freedom, justice for them
Too many murders on our hands
Broken inside, acts of violence
Prayer, for a future
Free of cruelty and cowardice

Equality
We must not forget that hopeful world
Unforgiven
Mistakes of the past, to break the silence…

It’s really up to society to determine the path to take. Our world needs a ton of prayers.

Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop Responded To Claims Of Him Being Rude To Fans

I usually don’t bother with bands such as these, i’m not huge into post-hardcore (or any core related metal for that matter) although i have listened to Asking Alexandria and others on a rare occasion. I’m mostly into melodic death metal, death metal and black metal. But after hearing a fan’s awful experience it bugs me that Danny couldn’t be a bit nicer to his fanbase.

Q: Do you appreciate your fans support & all?

A: Lots of people seem to think I hate our fans and don’t appreciate them at all. I really do. Our fans are awesome and I owe them everything I have. I just have a different way of showing. I’ve never been the people to sit and hang out with a group of people. I like my own space, I like being with just a couple of people that I know in my own little world. I have an antisocial disorder and I like to stay in my comfort zone. People never realize it and assume I’m an asshole.

Q&A with Danny Worsnop regarding the rumours, the stories and his all round bad reputation

I don’t know whether or not this guy realizes but when you have a fairly large fanbase it is disrespectful to push them away. It’s ok if you want to have your space you don’t need to spend hours on end talking to your fans, although it would be nice to get to know some of the people who appreciate and help your success. It’s sort of a two way street and in the end if you simply push them away it won’t help your image any. Some musicians are really cool and laid back people. Take Nergal (Adam) from Behemoth, a somewhat of a satanic band (or perceived as such), the guy seems brutal and mean on stage but i have heard great things about how he treats his fanbase.

I’ve met Jonny Santos from Spineshank (didn’t get to talk to him much mostly said hey and got to shake his hand) and hung out with Fear Factory a bit, i think i talked to one of the drummers (during the Archeype tour) and overall they are really cool laid back people. But upon hearing how Danny treats his fanbase, it’s nearly the opposite from my experiences. Now i’m not saying that Danny should change, although he needs to change on his own. I understand he’s anti-social, but even when i was like that i still wasn’t really.. i’m just really nice and i still am although still very introverted. I wasn’t really gabbing off with the Fear Factory band although, Burton chuckled when there was some metalcore or deathcore band screaming at the top of their lungs. Someone mentioned something about, “i wonder how long he’ll have his vocals for”. Burton was preoccupied with the History or Animal channel. It was definitely a cool experience but at the same time, the band was really cool to all the fans that were flocking in and out (which wasn’t much, but still..).

But as a fan, you gotta prepare yourself to be disappointed. In fact it’s best to not really be so preoccupied with when meeting the band that you gotta hug them or shake their hand or try to be friends with them. In any case don’t set your mind to one thing and one thing only and you won’t be disappointed. Not everyone is as nice as the other person and the whole lesson here is appreciate the bands that do show their appreciation and don’t be too bothered by those who don’t show it.

So is Danny Worsnop disrespectful/rude to fans? In a way yes, his attitude does show and fans can see it. Whether or not he thinks that is really up to him and it’s up to him to change.

Warning: The videos in these links are extremely violent, watch at your own risk!

Trans woman pleads for her life before being beaten to death
a transsexual woman is dragged from her home and beaten to death in the street in a sickening attack in Brazil

If there was ever a reason to avoid being transgender, now is the time. Well it has always been the time as throughout history transgender violence (also known as crossdressers/drag queens) has always been around, but as rare as it was back then because most people realize or know better to avoid transitioning. It was scarce even in the Biblical times as there wasn’t as many instances. Transgenders was barely a blip on the radar (less than most obscure diseases in the past) and whether or not they were a commonality back then it’s not the focus. The focus right now is that transgenders need therapy, not encouragement.

It’s so simple but somehow the transgender activism does a 180° and say that they need more protections. The most often quote they use is “the reason transgenders are suicidal and being murdered is because of discrimination”. It’s as if they are using that statement as a justification to continue pushing transgender ideology. But the bottom line is,

transgenders need therapy, not encouragement! This is the most effective way to stop the suicides and violence.

Transgender community hit hard by violence in U.S.

So yes, i put in bold, red letters that in another words, society needs to stop fighting over what protections transgenders need and demand that professionals stop encouraging these people to embrace “gender identity” and get to actually treating these people. It is sad, disturbing and pathetic that a group of individuals are deciding the fate of children when the violence against transgenders is extremely brutal.

When i say brutal, i don’t mean it’s nice like this,

(Warning don’t click on the videos if you can’t handle gory stuff!!!)

I mean brutal like this!
(Warning: If you want to keep your eardrums you’ll refrain from clicking this one!)

anyway, this is actually serious as the transgender activism continues to try to force people to accept transgenderism and the way people retaliate is murder, while most don’t resort to violence there’s still quite a few that are violent.

In my previous post, The insanity of transgender ideology; a two year old transgender this is a major problem that needs to be solved. While some people are saying ‘let live’ and the ‘lets not do anything but be nice’, that really isn’t curbing the violence.. spreading awareness is not helping any and neither is trying to make laws to protect transgenders (as shown with the U.S. that new anti-trans laws are being written on the regular basis), we as a society need to force professionals to rethink transitioning as treatment.

Because. It. Is. Not. Working!!

Talking to Your Kids About Transgenderism
Transgender student allegedly told ‘you’re not a girl’ by aide upset over bathroom use

Transitioning may solve the person’s gender confusion but it does not solve the risk of suicides, violence and murder. It only creates it. I was told, if something is not creating a result, meaning if you are not seeing a major impact, it means it’s not working. If it takes you 10 minutes to drill a hole, something is not right. Transgender activism has been trying to promote transgender children since the 90’s and it’s still not making a positive impact. Even much of what you see or hear on the news about transgender children living happy lives is not entirely true. Parents have to move, take their kids to a different school and try to hide the fact that their boy is really a girl.

This is when it’s a ‘more trouble than it’s worth’ situation and it’s not working. That’s when professionals have to rethink what treatments they are providing and come up with a much better solution that doesn’t involve transitioning, especially with children. That doesn’t mean reparative therapy is the only option, that only means there is another solution out there that doesn’t involve making others disgusted. Logically this shouldn’t be an issue, however this is an insane method from insane people.

In addition, here is more insanity if there was any more of a reason that transgenders need help, ‘I used to wish for cancer so I could get a mastectomy’: Transgender man reveals heartache ahead of surgery to have breasts removed

Coming across melodic death metal has been one of my favorite memories. It started out with At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity and In Flames. There are some great stuff in the genre and this is among one of the first songs i have been exposed to, sometime in 2002 or 2003,

Hours Passed In Exile Lyrics

As i got more involved in the metal subgenres the more i really enjoy the intense but melodic music, here’s a few youtube videos of that example (pretty rough/raw folk metal which has some symphonic, melodic black/death in it as well, pretty heavy insane stuff though so listen at your own risk there)
As I Die… – Lemuria (you could skip to 3:24 if you wish)
A Day of Reckoning by Lemuria (the amazing melodic solo comes around 4 minutes) though the rest of (both songs) it was pretty good at first, but gets pretty monotonous or tiring so those may not be the best examples, but every once in a while listening to those 2 songs are pretty epic in it’s own way but not meant to be overplayed unless of course you just go for the solos.

I actually find that listening to the more melodic, but intense stuff is better and still has some good solos in it as well…

And there are some pretty insane long songs too that are really good.

Folk music mixed with melodic death metal, and then there’s progressive melodic death metal,

(lyrics in video)

Other than some repeating lyrics throughout this song (which gets a little tedious at times) clocks around 16 minutes! If you hear it the first few times it’s amazing and even when writing this i’m playing back this song and it’s still epic. Yeah, so anyway along with my last post, My Introduction (as a Christian and metalhead) i decided to post something like this because, well i felt like it.

Or because i don’t want to be talking about controversial stuff all the time like i have been doing for the past 8 months, or a year…

Also, if you are interested, i have a last.fm profile, http://www.last.fm/user/spineshank155

Interesting enough, i wouldn’t call myself a Christian by any means. Even though on a rare occasion i might end up in church and despite me growing up as a Christian i wouldn’t really consider myself as one, since i don’t really go to church all the time or i really follow Jesus. Well really hard to put it into words really, but bottom line is i’m a major introvert. Like literally i prefer to be alone. I of course talk to some people but i’m not as social as i used to be, well at least outside of the internet, but even on the internet i have been feeling a bit reserved for quite awhile (which is another subject).

It could be because i like a lot of metal but i was introverted before i even heard the first Metallica album. But well as i (sorta) present myself as a Christian but a very introverted one at that (i don’t really come off as a Christian or really tell people this either), and neither i do with listening to metal. Now you probably may wonder, some people may still live in the dark ages when rock and roll was considered satanic in the religious sector and i’m sure some people still do. But now there’s metal with mindless screaming. Yahoo!!

(Before you go clicky on all the youtube videos, be warned there is satanic stuff going on in there….)

(..not really)

Anyway enough of the jokes with metal and…

Ok, that one was really bad.. but it’s supposed to be a Friday the 13th parody (along with Friday by Rebecca Black). I thought it was funny, but some people might not think so. Too much violence there.. so here is a realistic serious metal song.

One of my favorites, Mors Principium Est (description of the band name may come soon as i’m interested in what it means, never bothered to look it up) so in all seriousness, the reason i did this blog is i’m genuinely curious of what Christians think of metal music (pay no attention to the first 2 videos as they were most likely bad jokes). Oh here are the lyrics to the song, Monster In Me.

I know there are some Christian bands like Living Sacrifice, Antester (sp?), and there’s a Christian rock band, Skillet which has gained a lot of media attention. I told myself i would only post 3 videos to avoid any lagging but here’s two more tracks, i’ve been on a melodic death metal frenzy lately.

So in hopes of getting some feedback on this one i wonder how many Christians out there like metal, i know of a few that has.. i was on a forum site dedicated to Christians who like metal, but it got too complicated and too much drama ensued from the site. So i left the site. Also if this post is laggy, let me know because it’s probably because there’s too many videos on it. I get email notifications when someone comments too but it may take a day or two to accept the comments (mostly due to the fact this blog thingy is posting controversial stuff that makes people foam at the mouth).
