On Sci-Fi Nerds/Geeks/Enthusiasts

Posted by The Xinlo Of This Story , Feb 20 2013 · 204 views

It really surprises me how few of them/us like Star Trek. I mean, it's the show that, while not quite pioneering the genre, really opened up the possibilities. It even planted the seeds for a lot of the technology we actually use today, like sliding doors, cellphones and even the bridge schematics for navy vessels.

Yet when I talk to other science fiction fans, and go through the list "Do you like Doctor Who? How about Star Wars? Firefly? Stargate?" They're pretty much all a resounding "yeah!". And then you ask about Star Trek and everyone's like "eh... It's okay but kinda' boring." or worse.

Why is that? It's got everything the other shows have (cool ships, deep plots, likeable characters) except for a ton of explosions, but then you watch DS9 or Voyager and the entirety of the last 3 seasons are explosions.

I just don't get what makes people so wary of such a classic and genre-defining show.

Opera Metal

Posted by The Xinlo Of This Story , Feb 13 2013 · 128 views

...is what I've been listening to lately. Technically it's Symphonic Power metal, but I simplified it for you non-metal-nerds.

Thing is, I've been enjoying the slow, calm ballads most. So Opera Metal minus the Metal equals... opera.

SO yeah I'm enjoying opera now.

The metalhead in me feels I should burn my metal card now.

The Afterman: Descension

Posted by The Xinlo Of This Story , Feb 03 2013 · 145 views

So maybe I was bad and illegally downloaded the leak of this album because my special edition vinyl ws delayed.

Then again, maybe not. ;)

aaaaaaaaanyway HOLY FREAKING CARP is it awesome. The Hard Sell, Number City, and Gravity's Union are all on a level of greatness that matches such Coheed classics as 21:13, The Willing Well II or Gravemakers & Gunslingers, while Away We Go and 2's My Favourite 1 are bouncy, upbeat poppy songs that just give you the urge to sing along.

It's a lot lighter of an album than Ascension was, but with both halves combined into one 84-minute album (bit short for a double album lol) the heavy and light really seem very well balanced.

I've so far listened to this album (ascension along with it for the full effect) at least 20 times and I'm just getting started.

I recommend any level of Coheed fan to get this ASAP. Even if you don't know them, check out a few of the songs I mentioned. There's so many different styles there's bound to be something you'll like.
