My dear Tenoch, you have so much knowledge about so many things that I can't compete you. But fortunately I believe I have a little bit of a thinking mind that helps me not to feel totally incompetent with you (LOL). I thought my last post to your thread about Armenian genocide wasn't actually posted (I had some kind of a problem with internet connection by the time I tried to post it) but now I see it is posted and I'm glad. I haven't read your answer there yet - well I tried but I need to spend some time to understand it well.
As for cultural Genocide - I think it is unavoidable. But each nation could create new culture according to new rules of contemporary society - so that can survive and keep some of its old worthy culture elements vivid.
Anyway. The best thing I like in you, is that you make me think.
I agree with you, cultural Genocide is a sad thing. And far too common thesedays, in reference to my own people, the slow cultural Genocide has left 1.5 million people speaking our language, baring in mind Nahuatl was once the Lingua Franca of Mexico, now a paltry number still speak and understand it.
Yes! Traditions and traditional music help us to learn a lot about people's culture. It also helps to find out about people's dynamics. Of course traditions change and we must be able to recognize these differences nowadays. Maybe this way we can realize how a nation has changed through time and how much potential there is into that nation too.
I don't disregard anything in music. It is just that I prefer some kind of music more than other. I guess I enjoy more melodious songs. But I like listening to many different kind of music and exploring them. I always enjoyed mexican folk music - without knowing why. I think I like their sound.
Well of course, tastes are subjective, regardless, I'm glad you like the one, I have a wide range of musical influences, therefore I enjoy anything from Metallica to Eurodance. Folk music as well I tend to enjoy immensely.
I want to listen to some THRASH metal music so that I can understand it better. I have problem with the sound at my laptop.As soon as I will fix it, I'll listen to some songs and I'll tell you which one I prefer.
I agree with that, but when you suppose to learn something good, such as playing an instrument, you'd better start from an early age, otherwise you will never learn it perfect. But just as an experience, maybe I will try it. It is just very annoying trying to learn and being so bad at the beginning- I will feel silly and I will be needing a lot of practice (which is difficult because I don't have much free time).
Oh Tenoch!!! I'm so sorry for my spelling mistake. I think you should teach me english as well. In return I'll teach you some greek if you like. (I mean I don't practice everyday english speech and writing -except here of course-so I'm making terrible mistakes!!! It has happened to me before).
It seems you enjoy guitar playing very much. I absolutely agree with you-it seems fascinating.
Well, to play thrash metal (thrash, not trash, thrash meaning violently move), is the releasing of anger. It's usual as social rebellion (from it's Hardcore Punk roots) against political topics such as war, genocide, cults, etc. When I'm playing my instrument, it feels like I have a new level of confidence and power, your spirit rises, even if you got spit on, messed up, etc. it's like your hands hone raw energy. Industrial is far darker, it centers around much darker topics too such as serial killers, etc. I play what I feel like usually, it can be folk, thrash or industrial.
