  1. PA, is this a game blog?

    a race blog?

    both?

    am I allowed to participate?

    its alright if you dont want me here.

  2. PA – I’ve been missing out on your blog, but I see I have some good reading to catch up on. Good work. I look forward to more.

  3. ” About
    …..this blog is not a place where we point-and-rage or point-and-mock. That would be a waste of my time, and yours. This place is a vehicle for understanding ourselves and our world toward doing the things that need to be done — starting with ourselves.”

    Hmmm…..

  4. Like this blog a lot. I remember you from uber-commenting over at Heartiste (nee Roissy). I’ve read a bit you did on a Pearl Jam show and how one of their songs captured the transitioning from blue-pill to red-pill mindset (even if unintentionally.) And I’ve liked how you’ve categorized various musicians in terms of manosphere ideas and the red pill.

    I’d love to hear PA’s take on the early 90’s Grunge movement as a whole from a red pill perspective. Maybe a breakdown of the big four from that era: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains.

    As far as the singers go, Cobain was clearly the most beta, but I can’t quite make up my mind about who is most alpha. Probably Cornell, but Dirt was full of dark truths and Staley’s voice was probably the most masculine.

    Thoughts?

    Ok, fire away —– but do make note of the fact that one of those groups, Soundgarden, is a half-white band: the two most pivotal members in terms of their roles and songwriting prolificy, are half-to-wholly Native American Indians. The guitarist, Thayill, defines the sound of that band and his playing is CLEARLY inspired by Native-American folk styles, speciically voice-and-rhythmn ‘pow-wow’ phrasings and deliveries; ditto for singer Cornell’s lyrical phrasings and especially in those instances when he plays acoustic guitar.

    But go for it ——- just be sure to check with the members before assuming they’ll be down with the specifics of your particular ‘ethnostate.’

  6. nikcrit:

    I’m HBD-aware and accepting, and flatter myself that I’m more red-pill than blue (though as Rollo would counsel us, this in an ongoing process one we must be ever vigilant about).
    “Black Lives Matter” in truth is “Black Crimes Matter”, 1 STD and all that. I’m born & bred in the Tri-State area (NY/NJ/CT) and am unhappy about the flood of immigrants since 1965, and agree that multi-culti is a towel of Babel that will end in tears. I applaud Brexit and support Trump (voted for him in NJ’s primary, the first Primary I ever voted in.) I’m 43 and have seen some of the transformation first-hand. The culture of today is not the one I went to HS/College in and I agree that it’s much worse.

    But…..(and of course there’s a but): You’re really going to dismiss Soundgarden because Kim Thayil is part/whole Native-American, and his thundering, somber, ponderous guitar style perhaps reflects the temperament of his people? You’re going to dismiss AIC because Cantrell found a replacement lead vocalist who’s a black dude from Atlanta? (Staley, the original singer and dark lord of the band seemed Scots-Irish to me,) Cantrell’s solo career foundered, and he wanted to keep touring playing the old hits. So he found a non-heroin guy with pipes that he could work with. I doubt Duvall writes much, and his singing is juuuuust good enough to fill in those eerie harmonies.

    Does Red pill mean white purity? Do you dismiss Derb as red pill because he has mixed kids?

    If there are any two outgroups which white Americans should kinda/sorta accept it’s the Amerinds (who were here) and blacks (who we brought.) I don’t want to live in the ghetto, but dammit, our forefathers brought them here and we’re stuck with them. Affirmative action sucks, and black privilege is real, but Jesus Christ we brought them here. Some of them are damn good musically. Let Duvall fill in some harmonies and enable Cantrell to still play his old songs for Christ’s sake. I don’t want to live on a Reservation, but these bastards were here already before we took over. They couldn’t handle the microbes or booze we brought with us, so not many left. I don’t personally feel responsible for the Trail of Tears, and tribal casinos are a racket, but whatever. There is something noble about (some) tribes’ stoic warrior culture, and Thayil made Cornell sound better. Cornell’s vox are their most intense/brooding/menacing with Thayil behind him. So what?

    Anyway, I don’t want to hijack PA’s About page, just was hoping for his thoughts on it. PA’s musical insight is pretty good and I wondered what he thought of Grunge, which – on balance – is pretty angry/sad/disaffected white-boy shit.

    Peace.

  7. Hey PA, I’d like to get in touch via email, so please send a note to my contact address if you’re OK with that.

  8. — What are the no nos here?

    Other than common-sense rules like no spamming, violating anyone’s anonymity, illegal material, etc — I ask is that comments be on topic under a new post on its first day. You can post off-topic under an older article.

    And this came up twice … it’s all in good fun to call me or other commenters names — but keep family (real or imagined) out of it. Insult the other guy if you feel so inclined, just don’t bring his kin into it.

  9. I asked as I routinely get stuck in mod on CH. I am generally civil but have been put off from commenting there from time to time as the majority of my posts never make it on the page. That is all. And I am not familiar enough w/the pecking order to heap abuse on anyone beyond TSW. Happy blogging! PS- my handle was given to me in the field by some appreciative underlings, I do not consider myself a badass.
