Now I know a lot of the Cascadian BM scene looks at [anarcho-primitivism] differently and for the most part, I don’t care. If you think you can find some positive, eco-light in the pagan stuff, I hope it’s a stepping stone for you. But it becomes entrapped in all this identity games and I just wish every single time I see some mysteriously short interview with those bands that they’d just step the fuck up and make a statement about what they stand for.
Peregrine’s Kevin Tucker adds another piece to an article I’m working on about anarchy and metal/grindcore, specifically here about environmentalism, in an interview at Invisible Oranges.
On a marginally serious note (as serious as a presidential endorsement from a guy who plays in a band that sings about cannibalism, necrophilia, and rotting corpses can be, I suppose) I would be really psyched to have the opportunity to vote for Ron Paul this Fall.

The whole concept behind Gawker’s running presidential metal endorsements series is so weird to me and this will one will likely be a WTF bullhorn of Internet hate. That said, in my previous interactions with Matt, he’s a seriously thoughtful dude, so for whatever that’s worth.
