Just as a note for the future, “Folkish” is Indie Folk (Mumford and Sons, Monsters and Men ect.), the proper term for “Light Rock” is “Soft Rock”, but I don’t quite think that’s the best description here. Maybe New Wave, but that doesn’t quite sound right either. Also, I’m not sure if chill is enough of a genre.
In my opinion these are the top 25 most innovative rock bands, or artists, defined in terms of their influence.
1. Velvet Underground
2. Beach Boys
3. Black Sabbath
4. The Beatles
5. David Bowie
7. Iggy Pop and the Stooges
8. The Who
9. Jimi Hendrix
10. Les Paul
11. King Crimson
13. Sex Pistols
15. Chuck Berry
16. Sonic Youth
17. Nine Inch Nails
18. My Bloody Valentine
19. The Melvins
21. The Cure
22. Judas Priest
23. The Ramones
24. Dick Dale
Since there are STILL people who believe Ask Princess Molestia never features actual rape or molestation, I decided to compile list of every single rape/molestation joke in the blog. Obviously, trigger warning for rape, molestation, stalking, sexaul assault and abusive relationships below the break - for pretty much every strip tbh. Also list is long as shit, so beware that too.
Molestia will be called M cuz I’m sick of typing this stupid name.
Single entry consists of strip number and direct link, description, comments and shitlist:
- Link - bolded link means that rape etc. are shown, rather than alluded to;
struck outlink means that strip doesn’t include rape joke but is notable enough for whatever reason to include it on this list
- Description simply abridges plot of the strip for reference
- Comments: I could not survive reading this thing without using sarcasm as coping mechanism, so my comments go in italics, in brackets
- Shitlist: bolded are sensitive topics strip makes fun of:
stalking includes stalking and voyeurism, sexual harassment stands for verbal abuse, sexual assault for physical abuse, rape threats is also kinda obvious, rape is any kind of non-consensual intercourse (includes penetration with foreign objects), abusive relationship is pretty self-explanatory - only instances that have any of other shitlist items (e.g. abusive realtionship+rape) are listed here, but there’s shitton other - really like half of strips depicting Twi/Molestia relationship would qualify; UNSOA stands for “Unspecified Nonconsensual Surprise Oral Act” which for some reason is favorite of JJ (every instance of UNSOA is also rape), "punishment" stands for times when Molestia rapes/threatens to rape people as ‘punishment’ which is pretty horrid misappropriation of BDSM terms.
Note: why you folks keep saying there is no rape in APM at all if I was able to make categories of what kinds of rape appear most commonly?
I’m bad at obituaries, so I’m just going to skip everything about how it’s sad to see her go and my condolences to all involved since it would probably get long, wordy and a bit awkward since I didn’t know her personally.
Instead, I’ll skip right to my point:
My first thought when I heard of her…
This isn’t about which one is better, I personally prefer metal but like both, but it’s to speak strictly about the objective differences between the two. Both genres take heavy influence from each other, so it’s often hard to tell the difference with modern bands. So I made this list which I tried to make as complete as possible, laying out the differences so it’s quite clear.
- Both are heavily distorted, but metal is heavier (bassier), while punk is harsher (treblier).
- I wouldn’t say one is more or less melodic than the other, both can be very melodic or unmelodic in their own way, but the melodies in punk tend to be simple while the melodies in metal are complex, making the texture of metal closer to classical music while the texture in punk is closer to pop music.
- Metal is usually in a minor key (Aeolian mode), while punk is often in a major key (Ionian mode).
- Generally metal is more complex than punk, but there are some exceptions.
- The drumming in punk is usually based around the D-beat, which alternates between two sounds, while the typical metal beat is more of a steady, unsyncopated beat. However, metal drumming actually tends to be more complex and dynamic, with large drumsets with many different drums used for emphasis and heavy use of the double bass pedal, while punk drumming tends to be a fairly constant beat for dancing or moshing.
- Punk is usually very fast, faster than metal, but with the rise of speed metal this is less distinctive.
- In metal the bass usually mirrors the guitar part, both playing the same melody, while in punk the guitar usually acts as a rhythmic instrument while the bass line carries a simple melody.
- Despite the bassier guitars in metal, the bass in punk is turned up louder and considered more important.
- Punk usually uses nasal clean vocals or harsh shouts, while metal usually uses operatic clean vocals or harsh growls.
- Metal usually has guitar solos, whereas punk usually doesn’t.
- Punk tends to have short songs, while metal songs are long.
- Lyrically they often both take the Hard Rock themes of transgression and partying, as well as more extreme themes like nihilism, but it’s not specific to either one.
- Traditionally punk has political lyrics, while metal has fantasy inspired lyrics, but it’s changed over time and both can have lyrics about pretty much anything.
- Philosophically punk is almost always populist, while metal varies greatly.
- Both cultures seek for authenticity, but while punk stresses a DIY ethic, metal is usually more concerned with virtuosity.
- Metal has evolved into more musical subgenres, probably due to it’s greater complexity, but punk has it’s share as well, often taking influence from other genres of music and in turn influencing a range of non-punk genres.
Their fashion is pretty similar, jeans and leather jackets and whatnot, but the hairstyles are very different. Metalhead usually have long hair, while punks have short hair, often dyed and spiked or in a mohawk.
Nowadays people often think metal is more aggressive and angry, while punk is upbeat and poppy, but that’s actually just because Thrash Metal took all it’s anger and aggression from Hardcore Punk, and people forgot about punk’s anger and aggression because Pop Punk is what’s popular now, not Hardcore. As such I’ll compare a wide range of rock subgenres divided into pairs of related genres where one is punkier or more metallic than the other to give people are good feel of the difference and ranges of the two genres. The genres aren’t necessarily punk or metal subgenres, but they are influenced by such (and often both). In each pair I’ll list the punkier genre first, than the more metallic genre. Each song is meant to be a classic of the genre highlighting the similarities and differences, usually from the same time period for the pairs, but sometimes the examples might be tainted by the exception (for example, the song Scum seems to be practically Prog compared to the rest of the album Scum). Let’s get cracking!
Punk Rock vs Heavy Metal
Hardcore Punk vs Thrash Metal (and Crossover Thrash in the middle)
Grindcore vs Death Metal
Crust Punk vs Black Metal
Screamo vs Metalcore
Post-Hardcore vs Nu Metal
Melodic Hardcore vs Melodic Death Metal
New Wave vs Glam Metal
Pop Punk vs Hard Rock
Skate Punk vs Power Metal
Math Rock vs Progressive Metal
Mathcore vs Djent
Grunge vs Alternative Metal
Noise Rock vs Sluge Metal
Deathrock vs Gothic Metal
Folk Punk vs Folk Metal
TL;DR: Both punk and metal is shit music. Punk is crap made by slobs who are too lazy to learn how to play their guitars, and metal is crap made by snobs who won’t do anything except jack off their guitars. Both are losers.
Many people think that Silent Night is a new brony musician, but while he is up and coming, he is actually one of the original brony metal musicians, where he worked under the name Nightcolt. The reason for this confusion is because he went into a a year long hiatus and was…
ahh, remnants of my past. Also, it’s Scarlet Soundtrack, not Scarlet Symmetry haha
Mod here, noting that I have fixed it. Thanks for noting that.
Found the sick golden goose and gave it to his daughter to fatten it up. Discovering it produces gold now wants to open it to make a quick profit, not caring about the animal’s welfare.
Fearing the anger of her husband she just agrees with him and goes along with the killing.
Is just as sad as her sister about this but feels obligated to her parents wishes.
Nursed the golden goose to health and tries to stop her father from hurting the animal but really can’t do anything but watch with tears as he kills her beloved goose.
Except woodcutter/farmer/whatever always owned the goose and the just hired his wife and daughters to take care of this goose that’s somehow living for decades and only in recent years has anyone other than little girls liked the goose and in practically every version of the story everyone wants to cut the goose open because their greedy fuckers and by the way MLP is a cartoon and not a living animal.
Except that’s not true either, as the goose isn’t MLP, it’s Friendship is Magic, which is a specific MLP cartoon. Lauren Faust created FiM after being commisioned to by Hasbro. The metaphors in the picture are valid. You can disagree, but it’s not fundamentally flawed as you claim.
PS. MLP isn’t a cartoon, it’s a toyline.
You guys PLEASE. Take five minutes for this, it is your future on the line. THERE IS A REASON YOU HAVEN’T HEARD ABOUT THIS. THE MEDIA WILL NOT COVER IT.
THIS IS UP TO US. SIGNAL. BOOST. THIS. EVERYWHERE.
THE TPPA IS A “TRADE AGREEMENT” BETWEEN THE USA AND OTHER NATIONS THAT GIVES NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY OVER TO CORPORATIONS.
IT LITERALLY MAKES CORPORATIONS MORE POWERFUL THAN GOVERNMENTS, AND THE FIRST THING THEY WILL SHUT DOWN IS INTERNET FREEDOM.
THIS IS NOT TUMBLR HYPERBOLE.
THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT THE TPPA IS.
Any nation that signs the agreement and does not comply with the following regulations can be SUED FOR BILLIONS by any corporation which feels that country is reducing FUTURE profits there. Don’t want fracking in your town? Voted against it? Your vote doesn’t really matter if Exxon can sue your town for 70 billion in lost revenue, does it? Welcome to your future - where not even your government has power against corporations.
THIS IS WHAT THE TPPA IS. IT WILL EXTEND TO EVERY AREA OF LIFE FROM ENERGY TO MEDICINE, AND WILL DO SO WORLDWIDE.
IF THIS PASSES HERE’S WHAT WE HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO:
look at the links, but this is a sample:
Internet freedom. Thanks to public rebellion, corporations hoping to lock up and monopolize the internet failed in Congress last year to pass their repressive “Stop Online Piracy Act.” However, they’ve slipped SOPA’s most pernicious provisions into TPP. Corporate-created content, for example, would be given copyright protection for a stunning 120 years!
The deal would also transform internet service providers into a private, Big Brother police force, empowered to monitor our “user activity,” arbitrarily take down our content, and cut off our access to the internet.
To top that off, consumers could be assessed mandatory fines for non-commercial, small-scale copying—like sending your mom a recipe you got off of a paid site.
Jobs. US corporations would get special foreign-investor protections to limit the cost and risk of relocating their factories to low-wage nations that sign onto this agreement. For example, an American corporation thinking about moving a factory would know it is guaranteed a sweetheart deal if it exports to a TPP nation like Vietnam. The corporation could skirt Vietnam’s laws and demand compensation at an international tribunal for any government policy or action (such as a hike in the minimum wage) that undermined its “expected” profits. These guarantees would be strong incentives for corporate chieftains to export even more of our middle-class jobs.
Food safety. Any of our government’s food safety regulations (on pesticide levels, bacterial contamination, fecal exposure, toxic additives, GMOs, non-edible fillers, etc.) that are stricter than “international standards,” as most are, could be ruled as “illegal trade barriers.” Then our government would have to revise our consumer protections to comply with the weaker global standards. Also, our government could no longer ban meat imports that don’t meet our safe-to-eat laws, as long as the exporting nation simply claims that its inspection system is “equivalent” to ours. In addition, food labeling laws we rely on (organic, country-of-origin, animal-welfare approved, GMO-free, etc.) would also be subject to challenge as trade barriers.
Fracking. Our Department of Energy would lose its authority to regulate exports of natural gas to any TPP nation. This would create an explosion of the destructive fracking process across our land, for both foreign and US corporations could export fracked gas from America to member nations without any DOE review of the environmental and economic impacts on local communities—or on our national interests. It also means that most of the gas produced by this violently polluting process will not go to us, but to foreign users, which will raise our consumer prices and cut manufacturing growth.
Drug prices. Big Pharma would be given more years of monopoly pricing on each of their patents and be empowered to block distribution of cheaper generic drugs. Besides artificially keeping everyone’s prices high, this would be a death sentence to many people suffering from cancer, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and other treatable diseases in impoverished lands. The deal would also restrict the rights of our government to negotiate with drug giants to get lower consumer prices with bulk purchases, as Medicare and Medicaid do in the US.
Banksters. Wall Street and the financial giants in other TPP countries would make out like bandits: The deal explicitly prohibits transaction taxes (such as the proposed Robin Hood Tax here) that would shut down super-rich speculators who have repeatedly triggered financial crises and economic crashes around the world; it restricts “firewall” reforms that separate consumer banking from risky investment banking (thus prohibiting Congress from reinstating the much needed Glass-Steagall firewall in our country); it could roll back reforms that governments adopted to fix the extreme bank-deregulation regimen that caused Wall Street’s 2007 crash; and it provides a backdoor escape from national rules that would limit the size of “too-big-to-fail” behemoths. These extreme provisions would be enforceable by the banks themselves—TPP empowers them to force governments either to repeal reform laws or to compensate banks with taxpayer money for “losses” they say are caused by reforms.
Public services. TPP rules would limit how governments regulate such public services as utilities, transportation, and education, including restricting policies meant to ensure broad or universal access to those essential needs. One especially insidious rule says that member countries must open their service sectors to private competitors, which would allow the corporate provider to cherry pick the profitable customers and sink the public service. Also, corporations from any TPP nation must be allowed to bid on contracts to provide public services in the US on the same terms as American corporations.
THIS IS VERY REAL, AND IT IS BEING HIDDEN FROM YOU BECAUSE THEY KNOW HOW AWFUL IT IS AND WANT TO PASS IT WITHOUT ANYONE KNOWING.
OBAMA WANTS TO FAST-TRACK IT THROUGH HOUSE AND CONGRESS IN OCTOBER WITH NO MEDIA COVERAGE WHATSOEVER.
Here is a letter from a group of one hundred and two economists (from Tufts University) to Trade Ministers involved in the talk begging them to change the policy that would allow corporations to sue nations, because they fear it would make those nations unable to control thier own economies and lead to widespread financial disaster.

I’m actually very very very worried about this but I feel I need more information.
I don’t usually reblog stuff like this, but really.
If this is legit than a protest isn’t good enough, this deserves a freaking riot with bombs and crap. This is THE. WORST. POSSIBLE. THING.
Do you know who doesn’t post much on here? This guy.
Do you know who’s fuckin pissed? This guy.
Let me make this clear to you idiots who clearly don’t understand what “freedom of speech” means.
I don’t give shit whether or not you’re offended by what I say, write, do, or feel in my own personal…
Actually, that’s not how the freedom of speech works. It doesn’t prevent anyone from censoring you, it just prevents the government from doing so. The government cannot punish you for what you say. That actually isn’t true either because countless laws have been made to circumventive that like the Alien and Sedations Act and the Patriot Act, but no one cares about not being allowed to protest against an oppressive government which the 1st Amendment was created for, they only care about being able to spew out offensive shit. -_-
