I didn't realize Motörhead sang about issues of conscience and social justice. Now I'm curious to hear more of their music. I like the punk vibe of this song with its energy, its simple, pleasant melody, the drums and rhythm guitars, the strong, low, sustained guitar chords, and all that nice rhyming!

Is this soft heavy metal? Whatever it is, I like it.

Motörhead - "No Voices in the Sky"

"Voices in the Sky" is such a great song. I've honestly always thought Motorhead was pretty underrated in the lyrics department. It's true that most of their songs are about sex, drugs and rock 'n roll (and even those often have pretty good lyrics) but every so often Lemmy's been known to write something with more depth as well. You might like this one too, VEGANGELICA. It's in a very different style for Motorhead but it chokes me up every time I listen to it:

Or at least around *my* parts!

I can't understand why some people would actually *want* to rip their own hair out with hot wax unless they are *trying* to torture themselves. I suppose you could argue that they imagine future pleasure might compensate for the present pain? I would think they'd prefer to have pleasure *without* the pain.

Also, have you considered that maybe some women don't like to wear briefs? What then? No margins to wax!!!

I'm not a modern woman, I guess, skaltezon. I'm more of a postmodern woman. Postmodern women are not fixed by any cultural rules at all and can pick and choose among them, or make them up as they see fit, and they certainly don't succumb to simplistic conceptions of gender and beauty:

Quote:
Postmodern philosophy is skeptical or nihilistic toward many of the values and assumptions of philosophy that derive from modernity, such as humanity having an essence which distinguishes humans from animals.

Postmodern philosophy is often particularly skeptical about simple binary oppositions characteristic of structuralism, emphasizing the problem of the philosopher cleanly distinguishing knowledge from ignorance, social progress from reversion, dominance from submission, and presence from absence.

[For example] the writings of Lyotard were largely concerned with the role of narrative in human culture, and particularly how that role has changed as we have left modernity and entered a "postindustrial" or postmodern condition. He argued that modern philosophies legitimized their truth-claims not (as they themselves claimed) on logical or empirical grounds, but rather on the grounds of accepted stories (or "metanarratives") about knowledge and the world. He further argued that in our postmodern condition, these metanarratives no longer work to legitimize truth-claims.

He suggested that in the wake of the collapse of modern metanarratives, people are developing a new [view] -- one that does not make claims to absolute truth but rather celebrates a world of ever-changing relationships (among people and between people and the world).

Speaking of postmodern...

Rod Stewart's vision of reality in the "Do ya think I'm sexy" video you posted is much simpler.

My toenail philosophy? My postmodern philosophy on toenails is that clipping them makes sense because toenails (unlike most people's pubic hair) grow continuously and will prevent you from walking with ease unless they wear down naturally while you spring barefoot from boulder to boulder. Either that or you could gnaw them off.

A moving Motorhead song, Janszoon. I teared up listening to it also, especially the part about the young soldier calling for his mother as he dies and the two soldiers clinging to each other like children. Wars are such a waste of people's precious lives!

I am reminded of Monster of Folk's song "His Master's Voice." The first time I listened to this song, my hair stood on end partway through it because of its meaning mixed with the music. I like the way the martial sound of the drums enter. I especially like the repeated, ominous triple thuds of the drums nearer the end representing the violence that people can be convinced to do because they feel they hear their master's voice telling them to kill "sinners."

I also liked the ending when the singer gives his perspective...that the voice he likes best is the one that comes from within himself (my interpretation), not an external one. I wished the young soldier would have listened to the voice of the mother holding the paper cup filled with life and love!

Monsters of Folk - "His Master's Voice"



And now, speaking of mothers' cups filled with life and love...

You should just wait until Jewel is lactating, DJ! Women's breasts usually get really big then. And wet with dripping milk.

Truth.

Another false dilemma here seems to be that one must either succumb to simplistic notions of gender and beauty or dictate them oneself. If you choose the latter path, try at least to be less arbitrary in your value judgments.
Exactly: modern ("current") women *aren't* restricted to waxing their bikini lines if they like to wear briefs, unlike what you stated in your post previous to this one:

Modern (and post-modern) women do all sorts of things with their body hair. They can comb, trim, cut, shampoo, wax, etc. People can pick and choose what trends they wish to follow or which they don't. Just like I quoted above about post-modernism: "Postmodern philosophy is often particularly skeptical about simple binary oppositions." So, this means I don't view gender and various body characteristics as a simple dichotomy of "male" and "female."

I don't think I ever created the false dilemma that one must either succumb to simplistic notions of gender and beauty or dictate them oneself. About women waxing body hair, I said I didn't understand why they'd inflict pain on themselves although I imagine some women do it because the pleasure they gain eventually (their feelings about themselves as being attractive, for example) may outweigh the pain for them. Seems masochistic to me especially when one can feel good about oneself without hurting oneself.

Finally, skaltezon, I feel my value judgements about cutting head vs. waxing hair are not at all arbitrary. Cutting my head hair doesn't hurt while pulling out even a single hair is painful; therefore, cutting my scalp hair is very different than ripping out chunks of hair by the roots. Therefore, it makes sense that I'd have different value judgements about cutting vs pulling out hair.

Also, people generally treat women with their leg hair as unattractive or worse, while few people (in the U.S.) are now perturbed when women have short head hair or long head hair or any style in between...thanks to all those brave women who cut their hair short, bucking social norms. So, those two hair areas of the body are treated differently in society and thus it makes sense that my value judgements about the cutting of the hair on head vs. body would be different. So why do you feel I am being arbitrary in my value judgements as I dictate my own notions of gender and beauty?

A nice song although I feel that one is *not* the loniest number. Worse than "one" is being part of a twosome where one is lonely. Being lonely with someone else is MUCH worse than being alone, I feel.

Here's what I'm listening to now, because my favorite line is "Happy ever after in the market place, Molly lets the children lend a hand. Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face and in the evening she's a singer with the band." Even as I child I recognized and liked the equality in this song! That was what I hoped life would be like when I grew up.
