If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

36 Posts Christian Black Metal, day 85: "Hell Calls Hell" by Lengsel

'Interesting' black metal. Lyrics:

Hell calls Hell
Like death calls on the circled cross
Hell calls Hell
Like sharp bells sound
throughout the abyss

Invoke the voice
That creeps like a lion
In the wilderness
The lamb

Hell calls Hell
Like death calls on earth
Hell calls Hell
Like sharp bells sound
throughout the abyss

Invoke the voice
That creeps like a lion
In the wilderness
The lamb

Hell calls Hell
Like the serpent crawls through the crust
Hell calls Hell
Like the burning bells
ring in Abyss

Where O death is your victory?
Where is your sting of death?
Shards of the scorching sun
Swallowed whole in victory

This is a fantastic song, and possibly the highlight of “The Kiss, The Hope”. It’s a difficult & challenging album, especially after the debut “Lengsel” was so straightforward, and this album pushes the boundaries of avant-garde in metal. Still, worth the price of admission for this song alone.
