I think I became 5% gay just by reading the thread title alone.

Word up dude!
I just submitted a paper abstract on how the parallel scenes of backpacker
rap hop and deathmetal.org underground can save each other by cross
marketing across multiple formats and limited edition embroidered t shirts
and hats as well as more male import models to be featured in propaganda
and fanzine fold out posters. Both scenes are failing because of poor leadership and not enough trueness.

I'm hoping for one of the nonprofit deathmetal.org's many generous scholarships. Thanx Obama

Only in Finland there would be somebody to figure out something as stupid shit like this. We already had metal fair/expo, so this is the logical next step.

Wow. I actually read through the site. What a bunch if horribly mismashed "big" words and tryhard mentality.

Also, the whole thing about 'ethnic minorities' in Metal is laughably retarded.

What is with the sudden academic interest in metal? If you can find a reasonable link between your degree and the ratio of men to women or whites to non-whites in metal, or the underground marketability of symmetrical vs. non-symmetrical metal band logos, then your degree is fucking worthless and you should spend your time reconsidering your choice of college study or practicing the phrase "can I supersize that combo?" instead of writing that paper.

Although I can't help but smirk at this, I do wonder what such papers would have to say. Perhaps there's something interesting to learn from it. Surely, it isn't as bizarre as it appears at first glance?

The problem is that many of these academics aren't really interested in studying/presenting metal as it is. They're not really concerned with the music, what the content has traditionally been, the perspectives of the artists and fans, etc. They tend to be much more concerned with shoehorning the culture and concerns of academia (and more specifically, 'critical theory') into the topic: metal and ethnicity, metal and LGBT, metal and the collapse of late capitalism, etc, etc, etc, as though metal couldn't possibly have any meaning outside of these relationships. In reality, one of the things that has made metal so special is that it has stubbornly refused to pay lip service to these topics.

With all social institutions, we have a choice: either we improve them until they're useful, or we can sit back (like hipsters, haha) and critique them and do nothing while insane people run them into the ground.

I prefer the former obviously.

Hey guy, there is some serious scholarship that needs to happen before uneducated, non double Ph.D holders like you can even begin to understand how to listen to extreme heavy metal. Maybe every kid who has cut his flesh and worshipped satan after listening to Judas Priest backwards could have been saved. We need to research the impacts of heavy metal on eskimos in order to understand why we consume die hard vinyls and drink shitty beer. What about that missing plane? And Ukraine? How has heavy metal affected these major issues of the world? Or how about we develop a Quorthon hologram to save the scene?

I think about a future where I can get my next associate's degree from
deathmetal.org community college and it makes me smile.

Ultimately though, bro, think of the piles of unclaimed liberal arts grant moneys being stashed in the infernal vaults of time. This isn't
a fucking game. Don't let the capitalist swine poser hipster hordes run
this into the ground, ya'll! Take action! Write a dissertation! Smash the
state!

+1. Very well articulated.
This type of pseudo-intellectual wankery is strangely remeniscent of the "trick" to performing the more primitive arts of divination; reading tea leaves, staring into a fire, the black mirror/polished thumbnail etc...
The trick is the medium is actually not telling you a goddamn thing, but by staring at it and zoning out you project your inner ability and perform the reading.
This is the same thing, a bunch of post-Frankfurt School wankers indoctrinated with crackpot bullshit are projecting their own infantile delusions onto whatever falls beneath their gaze.

@Conservationist: Conferences and symposia do not make art better. All they can do is explain it, and that is a best case scenario. If you want to make metal better, than the easiest way is to PRODUCE BETTER ART.
