Lyrics and information about the band Butcher.
Well I seem to get a lot of hits on this page from people looking for Butcher information.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to throw some resources out there since my page doesn’t really have the wealth of Butcher-related info that you may be looking for.
Here is a nice show review of Butcher, and also on that page you may find a review of a Danny Carey project called VOLTO!.
This page has the lyrics. It’s not a great format, just the raw lyrics. Also, realize the final song “Cold” is an interpretation as that track did not have lyrics included in the liner.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Hopefully this will help those that end up hitting this site looking for Butcher info.
Off-kilter post about data retention and TOR.
This is an article about USAG Roberto Gonzales calling for new “data retention rules” for ISPs (the people that you pay to use the internet).
Basically, he says there’s a need for a standard because the people that do crime fighting need that information.
The reason why this is stupid is that we could all be masking our data, what servers we access, etc. Tor is a program designed to do just that. It works reasonably well, but it would work better if more people used it. If you are going to continue to “crack down” on businesses that provide services for the internet, most people will begin to use that sort of technology. Once that happens, you lose the ballgame altogether.
It’s a mixed bag, and it’s another area of the world where we need to have a sit-down as a society and come to a solution. But we’re too fucking lazy. Ah well, maybe the next species to evolve thumbs will think of it. Selah.
As a side note, I want to say I love every single person, and I believe we are capable of making changes to this world that will serve us and future generations in ways we could only dream of. Please, why don’t we?
Brief update to mention a bit of artwork I created.
My Deviantart Page (top 12 on that page, starting with bottom right)
It’s annoying that deviantart doesn’t have a better deviation structure set up. This is really not the optimal way to view this.
I have a .pdf output of it, but it’s 24 megabytes, which is rather large to post here…so if you’d like me to send you a copy, drop me an e-mail.
