Someone I know only online just asked me if he would be thought of as a racist if he thought some Africans / people of Africa heritage were ok but that some of them are still more monkey than the rest of us!!!! This guy actually said that.
I was like “Excuse me!! That is not something you say” but he then proceeded to send a pic of a football player and typed “Look at this guy! Look at his head especially his face and his mannerism. Don’t tell me this guy isn’t part gorilla or some other species!”
I was blown away but then all I could say was that humans are basically less hairy apes. We chimps and other monkeys all had evolved from a common ancestor.
To that he started abusing me. I checked his Twitter profile page – AH! Creationist. I had hit a nerve. I abused him back and told him to shove his opinions up his arsehole! I am now blocked by him and feeling rather proud of myself!
Mostly the same bands and artists that I usually listen to. The classics are always great. Most bands that I currently listen to I have been listening to for a long, long time. Bands from the 70s, 80s & 90s and a few from the 2000s. There are a few artists that I listen to a bit more now than previously. Like Slayer – I barely listened to them for so long but recently, since the past 2 years, I have been playing them on Youtube a lot more.
One band that I have started listening to are Greek Black Metal band formed in 1987 and their first album came out in 1991 but I only started listening to them last year and they blow me away. I have also been watching/listening to some cover bands, The Classic Rock Show and the Lexington Lab Band, that are a class above (meaning about as good as top class rock bands but these guys only play covers) a lot on Youtube since they do really fine, almost updated, covers of some of my bands songs and bands.
Other than that ofcourse I listen to my fav bands – Rush, Barenaked Ladies, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Queensryche, Def Leppard, Deep Purple, Dream Theatre, Bryan Adams, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, etc etc a lot.
