That's me back in WWII; I used to send messages back and forth. They used to call me "Old Ironwings." Some people thought that I was taking my job too seriously. But I was just serving God and country. As Sherman once said, "War is hell."
"Calling, the meek and the humble...welcome to blackboard jungle...so don't you fumble...just be humble..."
Hi, my username is Lighthead. As far as my job is concerned I am currently writing a collection of poetry. I've recently been signing my talk page with þ, so just look out for the Lightheadþ. It stands for the rune letter, thorn; so that's what that stands for. It also looks like a man with a light on his head (no?)... I was a 14&&32 but now I'm just <:-:|£7... If you would like to contact me, try contacting me through Wikipedia. Thanks.
Lately I've been fighting vandals in general. It's just a small way to contribute if anyone's interested and it's an easy way to put in those edits. If anyone wants to know how to do it, just drop me a line. I can give you a few pointers. I might even write an essay about it soon... Update: I can't give any good advice in doing this. I'm really rusty; I haven't made any major edits in a long time.
I also like adding unusual inline with the article text templates to articles. I'm one of the few people that do that on a regular basis.
If I made a mistake in reverting vandalism, don't feel bad if you pointed it out. Even though I'm smart, I realize that I mess up every once in a while (We're still imperfect, bottom line.) Mostly minor mistakes. rarely big ones, but it does happen.
Also, to new people. Just because one source says one thing, make sure that you're able to verify it in another way (the other way will usually be another source). So-called reputable websites make mistakes, too. Just be aware of that.
And that goes for more than just vandalism...You can apply this rule to anything I do. Here's the thing, I lack technical ability (I suck at math), but I'm very near genius in other fields. Anything abstract or theoretical, I excel. And that's how I know that the Organization is the truth. That leads to...
My ideology is basically different than before (please review history of this page, before June 8, 2011). My viewpoint now is highly influenced by the fact that I am now one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I've actually been in the truth since about late August of 2010. I have a userbox saying that I voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but that's merely there as my own political history, so in other words I have no plans to vote in 2012 or any election. But I'm still basically the same. I still hear electronic music, I just don't hear lyrically offensive (or in any way offensive) electronic music. I'm still the same, interest-wise, it's just my take on things that's 180 degrees different. If you're curious about the truth please check out the article, Jehovah's Witness. That said please take that article with a grain of salt. I remember it in the past as being highly slanted in its viewpoint. But if you're really curious please check out this website: www.jw.org. You'll be glad you did. Ha ha ha!
Note: Even though I'm a Jehovah's Witness, I'm not very active in editing JW related articles. I've even taken my name off of the wikiproject. Do I have a mental block? I couldn't tell you. All I know is I don't see myself objectively editing those articles here on Wiki-p. There's also various other reasons I don't feel comfortable editing those articles, here. One of the reasons is... editors... JW...related...articles. And bias as mentioned...lots of bias. But I already mentioned that in the previous paragraph. I don't see myself reconciling my faith and the view that a lot of people have of us. I'm not even gonna try. It's a disaster what's going on in those articles. And frankly it makes me sad. But oh well, they can't take electronic music article editing away from me. And that's a fact, jack. :)
Update: I formally distance myself from in any way editing Jehovah's Witness articles. I don't see those articles as being in any way constructive to what I believe in, so why contribute? What's the point of beautifying something, when there's already a website available? I understand that a lot of people might view this as sounding simplistic, I just feel safe in knowing that I have resources that I can turn to w/o going to or prettying up biased information. The funny thing is that a lot of those articles have tags on them that are critical of not having secondary sources. What does that tell you. I think I'll get my information there. Thanks.
One of my favorite lines is from one of my favorite films, The Game. It's when Conrad Van Orton (Michael Douglas' character), is shouting at his brother and, well, here it goes: "Did I have a choice! DID I HAVE A CHOICE!" This film is in my opinion David Fincher's masterpiece. Its not just the obvious plot lines, but the subtle plot lines the film takes you through.
One of my recent faves is True Grit (2010 film). Its rare use of the natural language of the time is particularly evocative for me. And rarely do you find an independent film that maintains a PG-13 rating; so that's great.
My absolute musical interest is electronic. I mean I'm listening to it as we speak (or as I speak). I can't seem to shake my obsession with drum and bass! I also like big beat, acid techno (my favorite acid techno song is Klopjob by AFX, otherwise known as Aphex Twin); as well as glitch, acid in general, and electro house in specific. I also like pretty much all the styles of hardcore techno. I mostly like music that makes me trip out, so you can add styles like psychedelia to the mix; and it trickles out from there. I basically like electronic music in general, any style of it, I like for the most part. The styles I try to stay away from are cheesy forms of trance and cheesy forms of house music. If it's a pure form of IDM, I usually hate it. I really do agree with what that article says about it. The article quotes somebody as saying that when he hears the term IDM, he gets ready to hear music that's weak and boring. I've found it to be true more times then I can count when an artist is identified as unadulterated IDM. In my experience, the only IDM that sounds excellent is when it's mixed in really well with another sub-genre (for example, drum and bass). This is just a general statement, but the airy fairy forms of it I don't like (a lot of the songs of Christian Fennesz, Apparat, Bluetech, Trentemøller, Four Tet, Ulrich Schnauss, and Isan are good examples, but only as a rule, now); the exception is unless its clever and humorous. Plaid is another one of my favorites. To me they sound like epic post-techno.
Musical artists I think are geniuses are Autechre, and Venetian Snares. I think Venetian Snares is one of the few musical artists that has merged acid with drum and bass (Note: I think that Aphex Twin has also dabbled in the mixing of these two genres mentioned here). Autechre for those who don't know are experimental or avante-garde techno.
A new style of music that I have just developed interest in is ghetto house. I hate hip hop (they've done studies, people who love Lil Wayne the most have the lowest IQ's; sounds like a joke, but am dead serious), but I sure do love ghetto house.
