Ladies and gentlemen and other people not defined by gender...

The End Of The World...

Is approaching!

As I write this, the time is a quarter to midnight on the 20th of December 2012...

We here in Australia have 15 minutes left until the zombie apocalypse begins!

The New Zealanders, I presume, are already half dead with a few survivors fighting for their lives.

Australia, are we ready?

Grab ye guns and grab ye, uh, other weapons. Because the apocalypse is here. No sleep for us. With 5 minutes until the end of the world and the beginning of the zombie apocalypse...

Oh wait.

There AREN'T any zombies coming?

The apocalypse really ISN'T real?

It's NOT the end of the world?

Well then.

That's f*cking boring, that is...

Stupid People That Do Stupid Things

You know what really annoys me?

Well, to be fair, a large number of things annoy me.

But a certain thing that really, really gets me annoyed is seeing either of the following two things:

a) Someone headbanging to a song that is [not Rock/Metal or some variation of these genres]
b) Someone headbanging in a Music Video that is [not Rock/Metal or some variation of these genres]


Because it is actually just wrong. I'm not criticizing all other genres, don't get me wrong.

Okay, yes, I actually hate all the mainstream stuff. Pop, Disco, Party, Dubstep, K-Pop, I hate it all. But other people love that and hate everything else, which I respect.

But I actually do like most other genres. I don't go looking for songs that are Country or Blues, for example, but I can listen to it. I can like it.

I just happen to love Metal and Rock, and all variations of them.

But seriously, I hate it when people headbanging to a different genre in a song. Because it's not meant for those songs.

And I am actually somewhat an expert on this field, so don't say I'm wrong. I know I'm not, on this one.

Pretty much all the way through the 70's, 80's and 90's, Rock was the mainstream genre. In the 60's, it wasn't as huge, but it was there and gaining awareness.
So, like, this includes all the stuff you've heard of (better have heard of). Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and later on Metallica as well.

Headbanging was created in the 1960's, and was used specifically for what was known as Rock back then. Led Zeppelin, Motörhead and Deep Purple are all original users of the headbanging technique. If I'm correct on this finer detail, Deep Purple was the first band to ever headbang, the name of the technique came from Motörhead's name (Motörheadbanging) and then Led Zeppelin bought it to fame by encouraging the crowd to 'headbang' on their 1969 tour.
I think.

Anyway, moving on.

Headbanging was meant for Rock and Metal, not Pop not songs with vocals auto-tuned and edited so much that it's beyond recognition (because they can't sing).

What happened was that headbanging was taken on by mainstream genres as well, once Rock stopped being the mainstream. And for some reason, the people these days think it's appropriate to apply this technique to their own songs, or preferences.

It's just wrong. I can't stand it.

So there you are! A rant! After a long time.

Another, one last thing.

You know how people keep saying "RESPECT" in a weird voice when someone does something 'cool' these days? School kids, I mean? Annoying school kids?

That 'respect' line, came from Pantera's famous hit 'Walk'.


That was where it originated.

Annoying people.

This place is dead.

You'd obviously worked that out by now anyway, but I'm still pointing it out.

No doubt now that I have, I'll start to find reasons to use it again.



Poor brick.

So here I am today (tonight, actually, but whatever) with nothing much to do. So instead of giving you another useless rant to read, I'm going to advertise my other blogs. Or something.


Mist's Not-So-Useless Not-So-Short Stories -
The place where basically all of my stories go with the exception of Nix and Mist for which has it's own blog and is also mostly written by Nixion Strange. The title is a playing on the words of what it was called when I first made the blog "My Useless Short Stories" which was changed when I ended up putting up my chapter stories there and people stated saying that they ween't actually useless.

Nix and Mist -
An easy way to remember the link is that it's basically the title backwards. You see, the book was originally going to be called Mist and Nix, but when it was decided that it would be written from Nixion's point of view rather than Mist's, it was changed to Nix and Mist. ...And for some reason, the link was never altered. Deal with it, it really is an awesome series. Unless everyone else has been lying...

My Useless Blog Ranting
Take a look around! This is that blog!

Blogland Chronicles -
This is basically where all the stories that involves groups of people from Blogland in them (which have now been titled as "Blogland Fan Fics" [Lynxia just hasn't gotten around to changing the blog description yet {Yes, this really is a bracket within a bracket within a bracket...}...]...).
It has stories from everyone and is really worth checking out.

What If? -
This is a blog Nixion created where someone generally posts a situation and people carry on from that. It is a "what if" kind of thing though, like "what if Sparky was a vampire?" or "what if Nix got turned into a zombie" or "what if Eve killed a live chicken?" (yes, they are all actually on the blog [yes, even Eve's live chicken one {Yes, this is really another three bracket thing...}...]...). It doesn't always have to carry on, but so far they all are but one.
I think.

Blogland OC's -
This is just a place to dump all your Character Profiles. Not very interesting, but good if you want to look up information about a character. Well, it WOULD be if more people posted their OC's.

A Collaborative Effort to Meet the Golden God!!!!!-
A place where...well, read the blog description. It has kind of died, unfortunately though, but...

So yeah, they are all the blogs I contribute to.

A Topic!!

On that note, I've found something to rant about. I'll still do that other rant thing though. So comment in the last post!!

Today's topic is...The name of the second post!

Look at it!
See what it says?
Now that was originally meant to be "I Am Bored". 
But does it say that?
Does it?!
No it doesn't.
Anyone care to take my text of bold and italic?
I'll do it myself.
Bold gone.
Italic gone.
Back to normal.
Back on track.
The track of useless ranting, of course.
What do you mean there isn't a useless ranting track?!
Well that...
That's not fair.
Anyway, time to get on with this thing. See how much space I've already taken up?
I suppose that's a good thing seeing as this place is only meant to be me ranting pointlessly and uselessly.
Don't they mean the same thing?
If not exact.
Moving on!
Full steam ahead!
...Oh, the no track thing, right...
Where was I?
Oh yeah, the title thingamabob. 
See what it says?!
It was meant to say "I Am Bor-"...
I've been through this already?
Have I?
*looks through text*
You're right.
I have,
I'm going through this space quite quickly.
And I haven't even gotten to the point yet.
Better do that then.
...Can you have an exclamation mark after an action?
I'm not sure.
Is it legal?
It is?
Well, that's good to know.
Well the english language is going to have to live with it.
Too bad for it if it doesn't like it.
Yes, moving on.
It was MEANT to say "I Am Bored".
DOES IT?!?!?!
What does it say again?
Oh yeah.
"I'm Bored"
What does that mean?!
How did Blogger manage to pull this one off?
Let me know.

/Rant end

You People!

You people! That’s right, you!
*points to subscribers*
I thank you very much for subscribing to this blog of absolute uselessness, but would you please please please subscribe to my one that actually has ACITIVY on it? PLEASE?!

Thank you! *bows to no one*
On that note, I'd better give you some ranting.

Okay, here's the deal. In the comments of this post, put any random topic you would like to see me rant about. it'll be funny and useless. Yay!
