  1. Has Nirvana Aged Poorly?

    Funny, because now today's popular artists are making epic music videos that Guns N' Roses did in the 90's.
  2. Has Nirvana Aged Poorly?

    Also, I think Nirvana had a different impact in the U.K. than the States. In the States Nirvana ruined a generation of American musicians. After Nirvana it was all about mediocrity, hate the mainstream yet be appealing to the teenage masses. It is no wonder rock is considered dead.
  3. Has Nirvana Aged Poorly?

    All I am saying is that some of those just can't get over the fact that Kurt Cobain was a drug addict who would abandon his fans and family.
  4. Has Nirvana Aged Poorly?

    That and he would abandon his wife and child.That was the one thing that turned me off about Nirvana was the fans made Cobain into this perfect human being. I remember reading that Cobain took heroin for a stomach pain. You don't take heroin just for pain. You take it because you want to get high. Cobain was a drug addict and he was suicidal. He couldn't live with himself. That is what fans want to deny, that he would just waste his talent like that.
  5. How Many Bands Do You Have Total Familiarity With?

    Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Yes, Guns N' Roses, Anything Clapton such as The Yardbirds, Cream, Derek and the Dominos, Allman Brothers Band, The Beach Boys, The Who, The Kinks, Stevie Ray Vaughan, AC/DC, The Clash, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Pink Floyd I know everyone is pretty much familiar with everything but I listen to a good song by any of these groups, I can't help but collect as many of their work as I can.

    Hey now, they lost a lot of subscriptions because of their endorsement. Calling him out for being racist and misogynistic would have finished them.
  7. What is "mainstream" music in your country?

    I often hear country music while pumping gas.
  8. Bands that make you change radio stations

    Styx. Journey Aerosmith

    The Arizona Republic breaks 126 years of tradition and has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. This is big. http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/editorial/2016/09/27/hillary-clinton-endorsement/91198668/ They make it clear that this election isn't about Democrat vs. Republican, it is beyond that. It is country over party.

    ISIS has been losing ground. They already lost have their territory. They are on the verge of being pushed out of Iraq and their territory in Syria is shrinking. They are stronger in Syria because of the Civil War, as long as that goes on they can still hold on but they are facing threats from their North and their East because the Syrian Democratic alliance are gaining ground on them.

    The Ottoman Empire was already in decline and its involvement in war only sped up its downfall. The opportunity was too good for the British and French to pass up. The British got Palestine and Mesopotamia and the French got Syria and Lebanon. The Ottoman Empire was actually a multi-ethnic state ruled by a Sultanate ruling class. The Turks eventually rose up and overthrow them. Their leader was Mustafa Kerman Ataturk who was able to create a secular leadership where religion doesn't interfere with rule and he himself was devout Sunni Muslim. Stable leadership is one of the reasons why Turkey has rose to become the strongest and most powerful country in the region. And has only begun advancing against ISIS, at least drive them away far enough from their own borders to put their rockets out of range. Turkey was able to forge their own nation without the help of Western powers. That was because Britain and France were supporting the Ottoman Sultanate. It isn't strange their WWI enemy has become their ally again because they were always allies, the Ottomans just picked the wrong side simply because Russia was on the side of Britain and France. Britian and France have always supported the Ottomans because they served as a counter weight against the growing Russian Imperialists and now with the rise of a new Soviet Empire, the British and French hoped to save the Ottomans but the Turkish nationalists wanted their own state. Policy since has aways been anti-Communist, anti-Russia. It didn't matter how brutal and oppressive the leaders were as long as they hated Communists. Egypt and Iraq were Soviet allies until the 1970's when they started getting more friendly with the US. Soviet decline in power was key to this. Egypt went from Israel's worse enemy to their best ally second only to the US. Russia tries to restore the balance of power. Syria has the only Russian Naval base outside Russia (if you count the Crimea as de fact Russia). So the Russians will fight hard to keep Assad in power. Russian naval infantry is present at the current Aleppo offensive. The US and Western Allies won't sent troops to fight Russians. I am afraid Aleppo is doomed but at the same time a alliance of Syrians, Kurds, Assyrians, Christians, Muslims are taking the fight against ISIS with Turkish and American air support. In Iraq, the Kurds are moving to re-take Mosul while Iraqi forces will push them put. Peace may not come in time, but they can make steps towards it. ISIS serves as the common enemy for everyone except for Assad who see's them as an opportunity to attack the weakened rebel positions at Aleppo.

    Who knows, but the ethnic and religious rivalries is something that the Turks kept to a simmer for hundreds of years and the subsequent dictators. A redrawing of the map is the best solution. ISIS wanted Iraq and Syria to be a one country under their rule, an idea that was proposed before but as a secular state. Kurdistan statehood will be on the table but Turkey and Iran will oppose it but I think it needs to happen. The Kurdish Peshmergahave been the most affective fighters against ISIS.

    "The Middle East was a safer place before Obama" No it wasn't. And the Arab Spring wasn't even Obama's fault. The people got tired of 100 years of being ruled by dictators which were basically replacements for Ottoman Sultans. Assad promised reform, people were still being imprisoned and the protesters were shot and gassed. Open revolt was long overdue. The leaders either had to reform or face open war. Abdullah II of Jordan seems to be the only one who has his shit together. He has moved towards a more democratic Jordan while at the same time keeping those radicals in line. And he has taken in more Syrian and Palestinian refugees more than anyone but the country's resources and infrastructure has been stretched to its limit. Assad must be removed from power. ISIS must be destroyed. Then we can have peace.

    Well he is a libertarian. Basically he's running to do nothing.

    Trump says "NATO has to focus on terror" They've been fighting terrorism for over 30 years. They also went into Afghanistan with the US in 2001. Many NATO troopers were killed. Also what's with this "we should have taken the oil" bullshit? That is not only illegal but imperialistic. Imperialism is one of the reasons why we have terrorism in the first place.
