RE: yet another RIP post... (in reply to Piwin

Wtf??? Terrible.......
When I was 14, my first tattoo ever, in a garage, was(is) a CFH on my arm. Not saying I’d do it again at this age but I do still love Pantera and at that time they were the only band carrying the thrash metal cross. Ugh.....that’s basically the entire Abbot family then, their parents must be a wreck...
RIP Vinnie....

Was my college buddy’s favorite drummer so I had to learn several pantera tunes in order to jam with him

Any info on cause of death? I remember when his brother was murdered on stage, poor guy

Looks like it was a heart attack in his sleep at his home in Vegas.

Glad you picked up on Sir Roger Scruton's death, Piwin. He was a classic conservative and a true philosopher. I say "classic conservative" because he believed in "conserving" what is best about Western Civilization, much as Kenneth Clark did, while dismissing as irrelevant the various "movements" of the zeitgeist.

Yes, he was an important figure on the right - one of only a few though. But it seems there are now some small signs of a backlash against the typical 'woke' mentality which has inexplicably become such a force in the past decade or so. Laurence Fox on the dreadful BBC Question Time for instance. Douglas Murray is another. Let's hope it's a trend that continues.

RE: yet another RIP post... (in reply to hamia

Scruton was an interesting philosopher and I relied on his little book about Kant to pass an exam, so I owe him that. But he wrote race-baiting stuff for money and gave intellectual cover to bigots such as Murray. I agree that Question Time is terrible, partly because they have irrelevant idiots like Fox on it.

Here is chapter and verse: https://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2019/04/25/scruton-is-part-of-an-intellectual-culture-giving-respectabi

Portes is not some raving wokie, he’s a very sober economist. But he does the numbers on immigration, so he’s well placed to call out the sort of bigotry that Scruton spouted for money.

And now for something completely different: Terry Jones.

I'd like to pay homage to him but I can already hear a shrill voice replying "Homage?! You're all drunk! It's disgusting! Out!"
