Listen, in a lot of ways, slavery was horrible. But slavery was already going on within Africa. And by it, Europe exploded Africa onto the world.

It's like... there was a passage in The Prince, where Machiavelli relates an episode, I believe from the rise of one pope Alexander, where he designates a ruthless guy to eradicate some gangs in some place and hand him control of that place. After this was done, he had that guy quartered and his pieces spread around that place.

does this...

I can only celebrate the African diaspora, and I can only celebrate the destruction of its causers.

The original dubstep was much closer to the original dub.

Buncha English kids who started meeting dub figures who had made enough money to move to England and it blew their fucking minds. While punk rockers and metal heads were looking at reggae, dubstepers and rappers were looking at dub.

It's not a compliment, or a diss. It's just a comment on what it is about it that struck me so hard.


I am taking it as a compliment, goddammit.

Without question, the greatest llanera ever written. fittingly, it is based on a rap battle, or contrapunteo, that Simon diaz had impromptu with a kid.

I think i figured out why. Cancer is both all feeling and tough. Pisces sacrifices toughness, and Scorpio sacrifices feeling. But Cancer neither sacrifices nor compromises neither. Which also sort of makes it God-given.

Ah, I am pleased about that shit. I had been wondering about that for years.

Back to watching this, enjoy your dub:

Crabs are a very tough shell around a very gooey delicious inside, that goes really well with butter.

You know that thought of butter threw me off the whole war movie enterprise a little bit. I'm gonna go smoke a cigarette and give it a second try.

When I watched it for the first time, I thought it was the best war movie I had ever seen.

That was a long time ago, and the memories were hazy, and the experience was extremely different. But the opinion remains.

Definitely Mel Gibson's last great movie as an actor.

Skream was like the sober older brother of dubstep.

Before Rusko, he was sort of the informal leader.
