I am surprised to hear that Europa Universalis IV has some really decent music.

It goes without saying that noone can beat Two Steps from Hell:



This one even sounds like Ride Forth Victoriously:

I'd like to see the ultimate horror movie ever made with evil as the good guys, good as evil; non-parody. I bet that would have the most epic heroic music ever heard. All the rich dark undertones culminating and rising high to the very peaks of the mountains that good people so claim to climb and then beyond all of a sudden to dip back down into the troubled avenues of the twisted and hidden pleasures of carnal desire, racing through killshot after killshot in frenzied proportions, etc., etc.

Frankly, our culture is over-whelmed by movies where the good guys win; every horror story has been told; even stories like The Last Samurai with hyped-up celebrity Tom Cruise has been done where the good guy limps up to the finish; has lost; but still looks good. In the pursuit of truth, I'd like to see the reality of things, where the good guy doesn't always win; doesn't always look good and isn't always felt a damn thing for; no sympathy, period.

I think the only movie that came close to that, in my opinion, was The Devil's Rejects by Rob Zombie, where the movie follows the viewpoints and characters of bloodthirsty killers, and the result is the same as a Disney movie: by the end of it, you relate to them, you feel for them, you want them to win against the idiot cops that go against them. With Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd going off in your ears as they enter their final stand, being riddled with bullets, it's quite the heroic picture of resistance, sans heroism.

I just want to see more epic and see it in excess. Then people might rebel and actually push for what is good with actual intent and love in their hearts.

I am not exactly sure if the word "cuck" is the right prognosis for Mr. Anderson. Mr. Anderson seems to be suffering from some sort of late onset fetal alcohol syndrome. He doesn't strike me as the Heroic type, but more like one of those homemade costumed vigilante guys from one of those comedy movies, who does heroic things by sharing articles about how to effectively troll youtube with nazi tropes at a library.

That would be an example of a projection. It is precisely cucks who think that morality is for cucks (since that's their experience with it.)

Note also that it is me who created the monster that is Outsider. He should call himself "Magnus Anderson's Ape" because that's precisely what he is.

That's a pathetic post. What's the point of it? Other than to remind me what you yourself are. Which does nothing but make me feel disgusted.

We continue with heroic music. Let us not be sidetracked by impulsive and insecure man-wannabe cucks and depressed herms.

This time something a bit more slower:

I am a goat in the sense that my astrological sign is capricorn. If that's what you mean, then yes.

The following must be posted. It's too good not to be posted.

No, it is not necessary to be gay in order to appreciate this kind of music. In fact, the word "gay" being synonymous with the word "happy" should indicate to you that gay people prefer to listen to happy music, such as Vengaboys, and this is in no way, shape or form a happy kind of music. As you can tell all by yourself, it is pretty sad.

What is necessary, then, in order to appreciate this kind of music that is, is to not be a barbarian. And you are a barbarian. You being a barbarian can be observed from the simple fact that you are nothing but a troll who does nothing on this forum but post snipe. You are a post sniper and post snipers are, believe it or not, barbarians.

Studies in fact show that Internet trolls -- which includes post snipers such as yourself -- are narcissists, psychopaths and sadists.

This makes perfect sense! It makes perfect sense that a psychopath such as you -- and being a psychopath we all know means having no feelings at all -- is utterly incapable of appreciating the kind of music that is all about feelings.

I hope this clears it up for you.

What part of the post do you not understand?

Here, let me link you to another article:
https://selfcarehaven.wordpress.com/201 ... -trolling/

And here's a quote:
THREE WAYS TO DISTINGUISH A SADISTIC CYBERBULLY FROM A PERSON WHO’S PROVIDING CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM

1. Rather than engaging in healthy debate and respectful disagreement, cyberbullies and trolls distinguish themselves from normal people who disagree by staging personal attacks on character instead of providing evidence against the argument that they claim to have problems with. Instead of saying, “Research proves you wrong, here’s the source,” they’re more prone to verbal diarrhea which consists of insults, name-calling, word salad, circular logic and provocative overgeneralizations deliberately aimed to get a rise out of you. They may even bring up personal details or assume things about you that have nothing at all to do with the matter at hand. They are, like many narcissists in intimate relationships, perpetual boundary-breakers.

2. They persist. Some cyberbullies give up eventually if they don’t get the response they were looking for, but others will keep hunting for more of a reaction and provoking you, even on multiple accounts. Like narcissists in intimate relationships, they use the anonymity feature of cyberspace to employ triangulation techniques with their “fake” accounts to show “support” for – who else -themselves.

3. Stalking. When you do respond in a way they’re not accustomed to, they suffer a kind of narcissistic injury and resort to low blows and attacks. Some cyberbullies are satisfied when you give them a quick ego stroke, like a “You’re right” to their insult and go away. Others are much more malicious. When you give them radio silence or choose to report their harassing behavior, they come after you.


The difference with you is that you are not even providing any kind of content. You are just 1) personally attacking, 2) persisting and 3) stalking. You stripped all of the bullshit and reduced everything to pure unadulterated trolling.

How do narcissists maintain the image that they are in actuality not narcissists?

By applying the logic of elimination. That is to say, not by honestly looking at who they are, but by looking at who they are not. In this way, they can show and prove both to themselves and others that they are not a narcissist of a kind A, nor of a kind B, nor of a kind C, nor of many other kinds. But without ever ceasing to be narcissists. This is because they always leave out, or skip, the narcissist of their own kind. Even better if it's a new kind that has yet to be pegged by medical establishment.

I kind of regret saying that Epica's cover of "Memory" is epic, because it isn't really, it's too metronomic and generally not as great as Elaine Paige's.

Susan Boyle's version is also better than Epica's:



Still, nothing beats, and can possibly beat, Elaine Paige's version. It's just too good.

Well, we still have Two Steps from Hell to counter-act that.

If TSFH is not masculine enough, how about this?



Or this?



A bit monotonous but can be salvaged.

Then we have TSFH again . . .

For Hairball and the like:

"['T]his is not the danger of the noble man, that he might become one of the good, but a churl, a mocker, a destroyer.
'Alas, I knew noble men who lost their highest hope. Then they slandered all high hopes. Then they lived impudently in brief pleasures and barely cast their goals beyond the day. Spirit too is lust, so they said. Then the wings of their spirit broke: and now their spirit crawls about and soils what it gnaws. Once they thought of becoming heroes: now they are voluptuaries. The hero is for them an offense and a fright.
'But by my love and hope I beseech you: do not throw away the hero in your soul! Hold holy your highest hope!'
Thus spoke Zarathustra." (Kaufmann translation, "On the Tree on the Mountainside".)

For Magnus:

"[P]recisely for the hero is beauty the hardest thing of all. Unattainable is beauty by all ardent wills.
A little more, a little less: precisely this is much here, it is the most here.
To stand with relaxed muscles and with unharnessed will: that is the hardest for all of you, ye sublime ones!
[Continued in my signature.]"
"When power becometh gracious and descendeth into the visible--I call such condescension, beauty.
And from no one do I want beauty so much as from thee, thou powerful one: let thy goodness be thy last self-conquest.
All evil do I accredit to thee: therefore do I desire of thee the good.
Verily, I have often laughed at the weaklings, who think themselves good because they have crippled paws!" (Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra, "The Sublime Ones", Common translation.)

Magnus, I like your taste in music. It definitely has a heroic quality to it. Really like the Epica and Two Steps from Hell stuff. I don't know if I listen to a lot of music that's up to par with this heroic aesthetic, but I'll think on it.

Okay, what about Enya's May It Be or Jeremy Soule's theme to Skyrim?
