FTA: You're a playwright. What do you write about?

"I write plays about farked up people in farked up situations, because we're all farked up human beings that live in a farked up society. People need to quit whining and shut up and realise that we're all freaks, whether we admit it or not."


Well, aren't you just William farking Shakespeare?

Well, then it's democracy, isn't it? You need to live in a democratic welfare society to protest against The Man.

Kinda difficult to fight the power when your whole life is devoted to just staying alive or feeding your kids...

How did the Boston police let this terrorist threat slip through the cracks.

Wow. That's one reference I wasn't expecting, but it's the first thing I thought of too. Not so much about about skate punk anymore, but back in the day....

Right.

If these punks really want to rock the "establishment", maybe they should start rebelling against their monolithic, totalitarian, and imperialistic "religion".

Islamic punk? Submission to God and rebellion against authority don't exactly go together. About as big an oxymoron as Islamofascism.

I couldn't help but wonder what she looks like..
 
2007-04-28 03:50:33 PM  
"Islamic" music? Let's hope they don't start 'Islamifying' music.

'Islamifying?'

You know how taking any genre of music and putting 'Christian' in front of it, i.e. Christian Death Metal, makes it lame? 'Islamifying' is the same thing, except with Islam.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't stand listening to music with heavy religious overtones.

"It's gonna get bigger. A lot of Muslim kids are tired of being told what to do, how to think, what to believe in, and how to act, by their parents. There are 'the angry muslim kids' who wanna grow beards and pray five times a day, and then there are the OTHER 'angry Muslim kids' who wanna get drunk and say a huge big 'fark you' to the Muslim population. Or maybe they just don't care and wanna sit at home and not think about Osama's video speeches about how America is the Great Satan."

I hope we will be seeing a lot more of the OTHER 'angry Muslim kids' in the future...... It's about time there was a reformation in Islam

Death Metal is safer since the Islamic lynch mob can't get upset if they can't make out the lyrics.

Hey, maybe they have something in common with the Bush-hating left after all.

But seriously...

I gotta wonder: if we now have islamic punk, can islamic emo be far behind? Maybe their hatred will turn inward and they'll start cutting their wrists instead of blowing themselves up.

Gotta go now...

Why are you linking Medine with Islamic extremism? He's muslim, and, at times, I'll give you that, but he's a pacifist. Do you understand his lyrics?
