My Dying Bride Forum

Take from me the crown of sympathy...

OBSESSION

Discuss the weather, your parents, your kids, the elections, in short anything that has nothing to do with My Dying Bride or metal, really.

The theme of obsessions leads us to reinforce our interests by reilliterating in our minds that these interests are controlling us to some extend by labelling what we do as an obsession, or whatever :lol:

My absolute obsession is music, but that's too obvious. My strong interest is alcohol :) Not just getting drunk but exploring every part of it as much as I can. I also collect obscure (and maybe not so obscure) instruments (Like Karimbas and Thunder Drums) but apart from those I'm quite boring hahaha

I believe you still haven't revealed your main obsession? :)

Edit: Think I've got it - Photography?

Yes, I haven't, and I won't.

No, it's not photography, although there's a link with photography in there.

Develop on your obsession further, what you said above was too vague.


Vague because my photo wouldn't let me type so much haha, but I'm on my laptop now :) Why not reveal your main obsession? Is it something to do with film's / magazines?

Music is special in so many ways, it varies more than wine, almost indefinitely, it can be used for so many purposes: Mood setting, used as a tool to overcome / help you with something, torturing foreigners :D, it can be a cheap and expensive interest (£3 Jazz CD's to overpriced box-sets: http://www.discogs.com/sell/list?master_id=312543&ev=mb), it's something you can do / get involved with yourself (which I am ;)), the experience of getting a CD in the post, unwrapping it, reading (and smelling hahaha) the booklet for the first time, listening to it for the first time, getting a vinyl, seeing the large artwork, inspecting the vinyl itself, the whole process of putting it on the turntable, slowly dropping the needle, going on a new adventure, sounds a bit sad but i bet you all think the same :P and you can do it over and over again, there's just so many advantages to music. Not boasting, to date I have 209 CD's and 36 LP's, 4 7"s, 6 music DVD's and a few 3" CDR's - You?

I have 6 instrument's so not many but it's growing, I also started to collect classic horror / giallo DVD's a year back but that interest died off a bit, thinking of getting back into them.

What do you think fuel's your interest for Vikings?

I don't want to reveal my main obsession because it is too damn personal and only my close friends know about it. In fact, I shoudn't have mentioned it in the first place and for that I'm sorry. And no, it doesn't have to do with films or magazines.


I understand, vajazzling is rather personal :P

Music is also very important to me but it's not an obsession. To what extent does it control or influence your life so as to be considered an obsession?
[I'm listentong to tBoW and the more I listen the more I like it]


It controls my life (almost) entirely, It's always on my mind, without music I would probably go insane... or I'd find something else but it couldn't rise up to what music offers

I guess music instruments don't come cheap, no?


Karimba's, Pan Flutes and Thunder Drums do hahaha, though I have an Electric & an Acoustic guitar too

I collect stamps, that's the first collection I started.


:shame:

What do you think fuel's your interest for Vikings?


So many things... I believe the root of this obsession goes back to when I was a child and used to watch a Viking cartoon on TV.


lol

OK, I'll reveal my obsession to you [since you apparently are so obsessed about getting to know it]. I'm obsessed on Hard Steel's Dave the Raven and only my close friends know about it because it so embarrasses me (I mean, if you were obsessed with Dave the Raven you'd want your close friends to be the only ones to know about it, right?).


I'd trust people I don't see more like people on this forum :) It's not that embarrassing...

When I saw his blond hair for the first time, it was more than I could handle. So I started obsessing about him, to a point I forgot he doesn't seem to have a brain. This worries my good friends but I'm more interested in other parts of his body... like his hair, for instance.
And everytime I hear him singing "I'm going to the beach..." I completely lose control. I won't describe here what I feel, though, as under-age people may read the posts in this forum.


... OK maybe a bit :lol:

Hmm... that's so soft... sure you don't have any kinky obsession?


Extreme music can be 'kinky' hahaha:

What do you mean a kinky obsession? stamp collecting? :lol:

OK, another one who thinks he's got a magic wand... next!


That's not all i listen to you know! :P

I like this one better, real music:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uux5gfHM ... plpp_video


I thought it said Electric Wizard so i was about to agree, the start was OK, then i heard the vocals :eek:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37xr34C46Fw (Listen from 3:50 onwards - not so soft :) - rather funny but maybe it's because I'm a bit mental)


OK, got it, you're obsessed with chastity.


Not where your concerned hahaha

I, too, say yes to chastity, I mean I only f*** Dave the Raven in thought (oops, sorry, I only make love to Dave the Raven in thought). :lol:

Or maybe you're obsessed about shit!
Well, I don't wanna go into that department as I don't wish to turn this into a shitty thread.
Anyway, Marco Vassi's "The Erotic Comedies" includes a nice story about coprophilia.

No, I mean someone collecting ladies' knickers... after having been worn, of course!


Thats just sick :lol:

Any obscene literature?


Peter Sotos - Public is the only book I've read by him

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sotos

(apart from the sneaky paedo crap)

Apart from that I love obscene literature but I can't afford it, music persuades me more :D Everything I buy I think 'Just think how many CD's / LP's I could have got with that!'

Suicide: I've gathered all sorts of comparative statistical data on different methods, and analysed them carefully. I may publish my own manual one day.


Please do - Danhod commands you! :whip:

What do you mean?


Nothing :D

the subject of paedophilia doesn't appeal to me.


Or me - just to make that clear!

Give exemples of what is obscene litrature to you.


Anything that pushes common moral boundaries - Creation Books sums it up really!

http://www.creationbooks.com/

I love erotic literature (but hate pornography) and I know a lot of the books I read would be considered pornographic by many people.


So you hate your own books? lol - BTW Nice attachments you're posting!

I once had a strong love for coffee, but it slowly died, Nescafe Gold is my favorite instant :D

Oh Hooman, you should stop this - Seriously!

Imagine never being able to see again, never hearing anything for eternity, never to speak, touch, taste or smell anything forever. Not knowing about anything that is going on, complete naivety for eternity - sounds convincing actually! OK - Think about it this way, your friends / family / associates, how would they feel about it? Knowing that they would never be able to see you ever again, never to hear your voice, never to share their experiences with you or to enjoy a conversation with you ever EVER again.

Scary thought, isn't it?

And... you would be missing the next MDB album!!!

I wore just black for around 6 years, then I brought some jeans! :O Just because I could not find any decent black trousers - I got a navy polo shirt and then a dark green one, I felt... Uncomfortable, now I feel strange in all black! But filled with a dark mysterious energy :twisted:

cool tattoo, we carved this equation on a pumpkin last Halloween :) as a fellow mathematician this discussion warms my hearth.
I was obssesed with kinematics adnd fluid mechanichs in highschool, then in the university I fell in love with fractals and wavelets.
There's a lot of beauty and "magic" in science still to be discovered.
Lately I'm into chess. Anyone playing?

I've always been fascinated by the universe, but it is not the career I chose, I'm working towards becoming a Police Detective, possibly 4-8 years away from now though!

The thought that the universe will be nothing but evenly dispersed, non-moving energy for eternity is distressing, but in a strange way comforting - the ultimate serenity... Though there could be other universes outside our own which may collide or merge into ours after this?

@Client would be a pleasure, sir http://www.chess.com/members/view/muskurov

@myhna Go is a strange and fun game. I was very sceptical when friend of mine gifted me stones and a board.
The rules are pretty simple, but the variations are so many that it's even difficult for a modern computer to play against
a strong Go player. I'm still a beginner, so I prefer playing with someone in person (maybe over a drink ;)).
on then Internet or against a machine is quite boring.

Wow! Cool career! Just don't end up showing up drunk at the crime scene! :|


I'll probably be the crime scene haha

The most simple organisms leave me stunned, for example the just slightly higher than plants developed flatworms. Everything that has got less than two ore more than eight legs…a glass of dirty water is the greatest thing to me. If I´ve got any obsession it must be the little sleepwalkers I´m even dreaming of.

Obsessed with sleep lately. Eight hours are never enough. I either don't get quality sleep or am getting apathetic and lazy. Hopefully it will pass soon :)
