The Metal Protagonist.txt

I’m not sure who the original creator of the .txt is, but it was posted on irc by my friend Subsidian. I hope you enjoy the read as much as I did.

“HEAVY METAL – The protagonist arrives on a Harley, kills the dragon, drinks a few beers, and bones the princess.
POWER METAL – The protagonist arrives riding a white unicorn, escapes from the dragon, saves the princess and makes love to her in an enchanted forest.
THRASH METAL – The protagonist arrives, fights the dragon, saves the princess and fucks her.
FOLK METAL – The protagonist arrives with some friends playing accordions, violins, flutes and many more weird instruments. The dragon falls asleep (because of all the dancing). Then they all leave…without the princess.
VIKING METAL – The protagonist arrives in a ship, kills the dragon with his mighty axe, skins the dragon and eats it, rapes the princess to death, steals her belongings, and burns the castle before leaving.
DEATH METAL – The protagonist arrives, kills the dragon, fucks the princess and kills her, then leaves.
BLACK METAL – The protagonist arrives at midnight, kills the dragon and impales it in front of the castle. Then he sodomizes the princess, drinks her blood in a ritual before killing her. Then he impales the princess next to the dragon.
GORE METAL – The protagonist arrives, kills the dragon and spreads his guts in front of the castle, fucks the princess and kills her. Then he fucks the dead body, slashes her belly, and eats her guts. Then he fucks the carcass again, burns the corpse, and fucks it for the last time.
GRIND METAL – The protagonist arrives, screams something completely indecipherable for about 30 seconds, and then leaves.
DOOM METAL – The protagonist arrives, sees the size of the dragon, and thinks he could never beat him. He gets depressed and commits suicide. The dragons eats his body and the princess as dessert. That’s the end of the sad story.
GOTHIC METAL – The princess in a velvet costume starts singing soprano. The protagonist completes the duet by adding the beast part, while the dragon plays the flute. Suddenly the dragon swallows the flute and accidently scorches the beauty and the beast and suffocates to death. All their souls are damned in hell for all eternity.
PROGRESSIVE METAL – The protagonist arrives with a guitar and plays a solo of 26 minutes. The dragon kills himself out of boredom. The protagonist arrives at the princess’ bedroom, plays another solo with all the techniques and tunes he learned in the last year of the conservatory. The princess escapes looking for the HEAVY METAL protagonist.
INDUSTRIAL METAL – The protagonist arrives wearing a greasy overcoat, makes an obscene gesture towards the dragon, and gets escorted out of fairy tale land by security guards.
SPEED METAL – Suddenly there, short solo, dragon is confused, someone’s screaming weird stuff, princess realizes she’s been deflowered, dragon and princess are still looking for the one who did this.
CHRISTIAN METAL – The protagonist rides in on his way home from church and sings a mushy power ballad to the dragon about how much Jesus loves him and that the dragon should turn to Him. The Dragon is immediately converted, and when the princess wants to “thank” the protagonist he replies, “sorry, but I don’t believe in having sex before marriage”.
GLAM METAL – The protagonist arrives, the dragon laughs at the guy’s appearance and lets him enter. He steals the princess’ make-up and tries to paint the castle in a beautiful pink color.
BATTLE METAL – The protagonist arrives with a legion of a hundred brave footmen, war chariots, and a dozen elite warriors, and as a master tactician, flanks the dragon in a bloody siege that lasts six hours. The princess gets bored.
NU METAL – The protagonist arrives in a run down Honda Civic and attempts to fight the dragon but stops to think about his tortured childhood and burns to death when his baggy clothes catch fire.
EMO – The protagonist sees the dragon and breaks down crying, realising how hard it will be to get the princess to fall in love with him, especially after she already broke his heart. He sacrifices himself to the dragon and the princess is happy, because he was a whiny fag anyway.”

I love going fast. I went for a quick 15-20 min drive in the back roads of Evergreen. I love the scenery; I will have to bring a camera next time so I can update this blog with pictures. The speed might not seem that fast, but apparently California (where I live has the shittiest roads in America). I was going about 55-70 mph for the duration of the trip. There were fun “twisties” and there were some straightaways. There is something about going fast that gets my heart pumping. Another part of the experience is that you are testing yourself and the vehicle. I would like to see how I can do on a real track for shits and giggles.

I sometimes get jealous when I watch Top Gear. The presenters get to test out many new cars and go insanely fast. I would like to get paid to have fun and drive fast =)!

As time goes by I want to learn more about cars, driving fast and of course other vehicles.


A *insert people to blame*’s Endless Greed

February 18, 2007

I’m not sure how many Americans think its okay to be raped by “the larger forces”, but I’m not one of them. I’m almost positive that our government doesn’t care about our well-being. Albeit gas prices aren’t as high as they are in other parts of the world, we aren’t allowed the same selection of cars. In Europe they have a vast array of diesel cars that we don’t have. For example the Volkswagen Lupo gets 78 miles per gallon. There are many more cars like the Volkswagen Lupo by the way, just google. Why, can’t we have cars like that in America? We get stuck with a Toyota Hybrid that gets 55 miles per gallon. Is it the fault of the car or gas companies? If so why doesn’t our government do something about it? I believe that the people that run our country care more about making money than taking care of its people.

The whole situation makes me wonder if there is a petition to get those types of cars in America. If there isn’t and you feel like making one with me I’m up for it.
