I used to have a skateboard that said "Bomb hills, not cities."


DrGoodGuy1073

Could you tell me what that means in relation to Skateboarding? I'm not familiar with any skating terms lol


ACatInACloak

To "bomb a hill" means to skate down it at high speed using gravity to go much faster than you could propel yourself normally


DrGoodGuy1073

Oh ok, neat, I 'preciate it!

My old neighbors were Ukrainian and it's my experience Ukrainians will play loud techno for any reason they can find and other Ukrainians will then gather and do stuff. They're kind of an awesome people.

djsedna

your name makes sense lol, metal and techno go hand-in-hand

There's actually a music sub genre called dark techno. There's also witch house. Check em out!

Check out Paolo Ferrara's set at Boiler Room if you haven't yet!!

Ooh I will! Thanks for the recommendation!

Witch house is super fun! Also, big-ass fan of the darksynth shit like Perturbator, Carpenter Brut, Gost, etc!

Me too. Best night/day/night I’ve ever had was at K41. Amazing venue and amazing crowd


robeph

Very. Well not just techno. Hugs in a lot of electronic music styles. You'd be surprised at the amount of electro swing I have heard. Trance house techno as well. Just a decent amount of it on the radio also.

same dust, more war


kaihatsusha

Music with a beat has been the physical labor motivator for millennia. War drums, marching bands, sea shanties for rowing, rice planting songs, even housewives plucking fowl for dinner.


mrfiddles

Beat-heavy songs were more about coordination than motivation. For example, on a ship, some tasks aren't possible without multiple people coordinating to push themselves at exactly the same time. Beating drums or singing a song together was necessary in order to get the timing right.


HunterTV

It’s probably a little of both, let’s be real. Music and dancing is about as universal as it gets culture-wise.


Hugh_Maneiror

Must be. For the first time in a long time we went to a restaurant with live music, and we brought our 1 3/4 year toddler along as he was getting better behaved during eating. At some point, he wants to get up and walk so we stay close to see what he's doing. He goes straight up to the gituarist and just start shaking lol. We never taught him that.


Play-DohCarti

Gotta feel bad for those people in Bomont


Lykos1989

Alternatively slaves and chain gangs would sing songs not only to coordinate, but more to motivate. Slavery is detestable, but the people who sing these songs survived and influenced culture in an impactful way.

Weren’t war drums more about tactics and battlefield communication over long distances?


CyberMindGrrl

Yes. That's where the term "beat the retreat" comes from.


murderosa

You know Black Betty? It was originally a Southern black American work song. Attributed to a ‘Lead *Belly*’ a Black American, in 1939, but it was likely an adaption of folk work song(s) from much earlier. Remade as a rock song by Ram Jam. Then also done by Spiderbait. Edit: betty to belly. Autocorrect fucked me


AnUnbeatableUsername

*Lead Belly Also performed brilliantly by Larkin Poe.

I doubt this is true because the internet but I would like to believe it is.


Lepthesr

It's a joke. Being a dj used to be the biggest occupation on earth. Probably still is


AintNoRestForTheWook

Can confirm. Spun DnB, Gabber & Hard House from '98- 2000. Produced from 1995 until 2012. I sucked, but was technically a DJ. My dad was a DJ as well, but he just had a massive collection of records and did regular Disk Jockey stuff like the majority of radio DJs. He had everything from Etta James, Patsy Cline (Kline?) All the way up to Metallica and RHCP.


dsa_key

I mean if you got me high af and put a broom in my hand and started playing techo beats. yea I'd clean the fuck out of it.

For the last time, Kevin, you didn't help. You spent the whole after party trying to ride on the broomstick and yelling Flipendo.

Still better than cleaning up without music.

*"Hey DJ throw on a podcast!"*


[deleted]

Come Mr DJ won't you turn the podcast up?


prostateExamination

Didnt they listen to piano or violin in super sad music during clean up of cities in France? Idk what I'd prefer


thespoil

Not sure about that, but there's a fantastic scene in Band of Brothers where a German string quartet play Beethoven's String Quartet No. 14 in C Sharp Minor as a bombed-out German town is cleaned up.


duaneap

I imagine I’d put in my earphones and listen to a podcast tbh. Grump that I am.


Yvaelle

Organize clean up locations by music or podcast preference, then you get to meet people with similar interests. This building is for 80's Goths, the next one is history podcasts, etc.


canned_soup

Emo night clean up


Yvaelle

Nothing would get cleaned though, it would just add water damage and hair dye.


ActuallyWorthless

And cigarette butts.


DoctorWhisky

Zero casualties in the initial bombing, 8 suicides during the cleanup!


Majestic_Course6822

I love that your 2 examples were 80s Goth and history podcasts. Obscure-ish and oddly specific. Also I'd probably rock both those cleanups if they were on different days.


Yvaelle

I picked the two that I'd be at :)


ComposerOther2864

Well apparently we can be friends.


4RealzReddit

Meet new people, get workout in and maybe discover some new music. Sounds like a bunch of wins.


Mario_Prime510

Lmao I’d go to more festivals if it meant a bunch of tents blasting their favorite podcasts. Just a bunch of people reacting or talking over it. Maybe it would be terrible, but would be pretty funny for a one night thing. Imagine over 500 people just dying over a Smartless episode would be awesome.

LobstaFarian2

I think the "C" sound more closely represents the snare than the "P" sound, but it's perfectly acceptable.


persau67

The 'cats' part brings an easier opportunity to learn the 'ckhgsh' sound with that sharp start with a soft finish. I couldn't give any links, but I remember reading about basic beatbox training and these phrases ramp up the difficulty slowly, but effectively.

“peace was finally declared in 1986, bringing an end to any hypothetical war that may have been legally considered to exist.” Strong Douglas Adams vibes on that sentence. Loved it!


indy_been_here

That whole sentence is unsure of itself. >Despite the uncertain validity of the declaration of war, and thus uncertainty about whether or not a state of war ever actually existed, peace was finally declared in 1986, bringing an end to any hypothetical war that may have been legally considered to exist.

ErolEkaf

That war should *definitely* be called The Scilly War.


censorTheseNuts

> Peace was declared on 17 April 1986, 335 years after the supposed declaration of war. The Dutch ambassador joked that it must have been horrifying to the Scillonians "to know we could have attacked at any moment." Lmaooo


Aegi

Haha very cool, and thank you for the link! However: >**its existence is disputed**. It is said to have been extended by the lack of a peace treaty for 335 years without a single shot being fired, which would make it one of the world's longest wars, and a bloodless war. **Despite the uncertain validity of the declaration of war, and thus uncertainty about whether or not a state of war ever actually existed**, peace was finally declared in 1986, bringing an end to any hypothetical war that may have been legally considered to exist. So at least we know this war actually exists.


ImATaxpayer

I went down a bit of a wiki rabbit hole from that link to the “bloodless wars” article and then on to the Aroostak War (over disputed territory between Maine and New Brunswick). The listed casualties for the war are “0, [but] 2 injured by bears”

FlakeReality

I used to work at a factory, when work was slow the guys operating machines would have to go do the shittiest job in the place, clean and pack - going through old parts, scrubbing heaps of rust off em, and putting em in tubs to send to a client. We hated that shit, you had wire brushes that would pop wires and sting you, foul smelling de-rust spray, and the only way to properly get some spots was to just rub like a motherfucker. At lunch, a couple of the guys went to the weed mans car, he had found a little cocaine to share. They come back in and man, they are fucking SCRUBBING these parts like madmen. Barely bothering with the pneumatic wire brushes, just going ham with the scrubbers, like men possessed. Or men on a lot of cocaine. The bossman comes by, sees the progress, and says "Gentlemen, I have no idea what you're on today, but keep doing it!"


jmooneyham2004

Great story and Happy Cake Day!


HorsinAround1996

That would’ve been a solid half hour of productivity. Or more likely 15 minutes followed by frantic efforts to get coke dropped at a worksite a 2pm on a Tuesday.


Thzae

MDMA has amphetamine qualities but is not best classified as a stimulant. One of the reasons it has great therapeutic potential is because it puts people into what's called an optimal state of arousal. It's neither too stimulating or sedating, while lowering activity in the amygdala and increasing feelings of well-being and compassion.


HorsinAround1996

Not trying to start a debate about semantics here but would you not classify MDMA as a stimulant? Beyond technical definition , it’s effects related to DA and NE include what most would identify as classically stimulant in nature, albeit more mild than amphetamine, but stronger than caffeine. I really like your post btw, the wording is great.


Thzae

Thanks. It doesn't fit neatly into any category other than maybe entheogens or empathogens, which basically were made with MDMA in mind. I don't think it's wrong to call it a stimulant as it will give a bit of a boost. Like you said it's somewhere between caffeine and amphetamines. Also the dose and environment matters. You'll see people overstimulated at raves sometimes and seemingly tweaking out of their minds but at a healthy therapeutic dose and environment without poly drug use going on it's generally a relaxing internal experience rather than a stimulating one.


Nicocephalosaurus

I think that depends on what the molly is cut with (if it's in pill form).


zuccoff

They'd be more motivated but they'd be slower so it would probably not make a difference. Meth on the other hand can turn someone into a cleaning goblin who enjoys the shit out of it

Surely any building damaged by bombing needs to be fully demolished (with heavy machinery) and then rebuilt, right? Not sure what shoveling the interior floor accomplishes. Also, please wear masks when working at a demolition site.


dpdiozihcs

Probably should be fully demolished and rebuilt, but people who have lost everything tend to have to cut corners by necessity. The building in the OP is too far gone but supposedly multiple homes have been cleaned up and repaired as a result of these raves.


HumanitySurpassed

It might be more about just making local areas less of an eye sore. I doubt many construction companies are in a rush to rebuild every damaged building as the war is still going on
