    Nothing more revolutionary than funding the capitalist regime to support a jack off like Che. :lol:

    Tom Morello, by most accounts, is a dipshit, regardless of his supposed political leanings.

    I do love his rig and playing though. :agreed:

    I try not to get too caught up in the political opinions of musicians. I listen to good music even if I don't agree with the dipshit playing it. I don't listen to shit music even if I strongly agree with the dipshit playing it.


    Once I got into metal and playing instruments, my dad was desperate to get me back from the devil and always buying me christian death metal CDs and playing the entire creed catalogue on repeat on long drives.

    When I came home on mid-tour leave one time, he played me a Ted Nugent song called I am the NRA. He made me sit through the whole thing and then asked me how awesome it was (keep in mind this was back in the days when I was still a right-wing fucktard). I told him it was nothing special it just sounded like a generic light rock song. He got really pissed and started yelling that it's some kind of amazing song because it's about the NRA and played by one of the biggest NRA bigwigs.

    This is my beef with how so many people consume christian music. It doesn't matter the genre, just that it's christian music. Listening to music about love, or vikings, or a winter snowfall is, at best, wasting time that could be spent listening to music praising god/jesus/the lord. Instrumentals aren't even OK unless it's written, or performed by a christian.

    I had a neighbor who used to take rock and pop songs, and jesus-them-up to play during service. They played a softened version of "Breakin' the law" from Judas Priest called "Praying to God". And that was OK...even though the music wasn't written by a christian artist.

    I don't know...it's like saying you only eat fish, but then you count shellfish, jellyfish, whales, starfish...but then beef cut into the shape of a fish, or cooked by a chef who normally only cooks fish...

    I'll listen to someone i don't agree with, until lyrical content gets in the way...and even then, only if I notice. There are songs that i can sing along with, word for word while it's playing...and then when it stops, have no idea what it's about. or, like...I'll still listen to old Nugent if it comes on. But no way in hell would I listen to a song from him about the how great the NRA is.

    I don't agree with or approve of the christian religion or lifestyle, but I'll still jam some Jesus Freak and 80s Petra.

    I call on Poe's law here.

    I'm going to be splitting hair there, but there is a bit of a difference. While the Eastern block resorted a lot to deportation of political prisoners and left many dead behind in general, that's not part of the communist ideology, but of its application by authoritarian governments. One can agree or disagree about whether the ideology would always devolve into tyranny because it's inherent to it or if we just got unlucky, but still, the core of the ideology doesn't say you should let famine rage and imprison political opponents. On the other hands, the nazis pretty clearly say there are superior races, inferior ones, and vermin that needs to be weeded out.
    So, I don't think displaying communist emblems and nazi emblems carries the same load. Let's not fall into the horseshoe fallacy.
    That being said, it is kinda lame to use these emblems to be edgy and all the while not really understand them. Not sure what applies to Morello, I don't know the guy...he does seem to do a lot of activism so he is at least a bit coherent...

    Building that guitar is a lot more work than I'd assume a guy like that would put into a troll. But I've been wrong before about how much effort someone would put into a joke...

    It's very "googie" art style to me:

    I also get "Door from Pee-Wee's Playhouse" vibes from it. :)

    Whoah, he was not messing around! :lol: I do not mind Creed actually, they had some nice melodies even if I am not a fan. Still, you got some free death metal cds out of it, even if they are christian ones. Never heard of such bands myself, only some black metal ones like Order of Apollyon, which confused me as members of Balrog were in them.

    Well personally, I would not go (for example) to a Romanian family of a Ceaușescu regime starvation victim and say that or to a Polish family that had one of its member taken to a concentration camp never to return or be seen again and argue semantics. Sounds like being apologetic to me to promote an ideology which brought havoc, "This serial killer killed 8 people while the other 10, this makes his ideology better".
    Anyway, wrong thread for this discussion maybe.:2c:

    It reminds me of the lifelong quest of one coyote to catch and eat a certain bird in the desert of the American West.

    The only thing holding it back from being worth thousands is a Carl Thompson branding.

    This is from CDPR E3 Demo Booth. The guitar itself isn't bad, but that bridge system/position... Headless saddle, into angle break, into another saddle (under the cover, by the looks of it). Ouch.
