Polls Are In! + Update

After 6 weeks of open polls, the results are in.  I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote.   The readers of Crucial Changes have voted for more Local Spotlights.  I will follow thorough with such requests with a new Local Spotlight before months end.  Who will the band be?  You'll just have to wait and see.  Coming in a not so distant 2nd was Local Scene Reports.  These are normally done Quarterly, but maybe I can pick that up a little bit in the coming months.  Travel Stories, Record Reviews, and Rants/Raves all finished basically 3rd on the list collectively and respectfully.  I'm almost positive that there will be a show that I'll want to travel for early on this year, and Record Reviews I'm still on the fence for.  I would like to do reviews, however I am afraid of neglecting to post them after a few months.  Rants and Raves however, I would like to up the posts on in the near future.  What is important to you in the hardcore scene where you live?  Is there even a hardcore scene?  What bands should be getting attention?  What bands shouldn't?  Let me know and leave a comment.   

In other news here at the CCHQ, things are moving quickly behind the scenes for my next project of a cd-r comp featuring some of my favorite local underground punk and noise acts.  The band submissions were greater than I expected and it's taking some time to decide what bands will be featured on the comp.  As of right now it looks like there will be an equal number of punk and noise bands, and maybe even a surprise or two.  Expect to see a mock up of the cover art within the next couple of weeks.  Once all the deigning is done, things will quickly move into place and I'm looking at a date some time in Feb. for the first batch of cd-r's.  I would also like to have my 3rd zine ready at the same time.  All further updates on any projects related to Crucial Changes will be updated as they happen right here on the blog.  

Winter shows are really starting to pick up around here, so expect to see some photo updates in the near future.  That is all I have for right now, comment freely.  Peace.

  1. Men are the ones who create evil on Earth. It is the choices they make which enslave their souls to hell.
    And that's why you are continually reincarnated. Welcome to the Matrix.
    7 billion in 2011. Only 1 billion in 1800 and 2 billion in 1900.
    Population explosion is a clue::::The gods are sending everyone back for The End.
    There must be some purgatory-like place. Or individual. Like an animal.
    Now the gods have sent everyone back to try for one final time to fix their problems and ascend into heaven. Avoiding an animal would have been a big positive because those thrust into this decayed enviornment have less of a chance than those who enjoyed the god's generosity of a slowly decaying enviornment with frightening clues, like the Depression, World at War, the Holocaust, etc.
    Anything that can get the poeple frightened and praying is a good. thing. Contentment never motivated anyone.

    As we approach the Apocalypse the gods are removing "wrath of god" material from xtian dogma.
    As we see wickedness spread throughout the country, like preditory behavior, godlessness, social changes, etc, using cable TV and the spread of "Californication" as justification, they changed xtianity, appropriatly with Catholicism first.
    xtianity has changed radically in the 20th century, and everyone should be mindful of the way it was, because the people are in a process of slipping out of god's favor into a state of Damnation, from which the vast majority will never survive.
    They used to scare people and make them too afraid to make mistakes. Now people aren't afraid of anything and don't think twice about doing something wicked and evil which will hurt their chances.

    Good god says a ceiling on time for everyone (see below). Evil god still gives hope for immortality to people who subscribed to preditory behavior:::Immortality if you are right versus a couple centuries partying at best even if you change now.
    Due to institutional evil the closer we get to The End the more evil everyone incurrs (with individual variation due to behavior) which limits the time for everyone.
    Probably the children who fix their problems and ascend into heaven as well. Experiencing the evil of modern life in the 20th century costed them, for which limits are placed. They are not the same as their innocent peasantry ancestors from the Old World.
    You people have fucked up bad by not getting out before the 20th century.
    Just because the gods have to break some eggs doesn't mean they are evil. As management there are hard decisions that must be made. But they used this omelette and sold it to people as temptation, who went out and did things they shouldn't have done thinking being preditory was the way to "earn" their way into heaven.
    Employment charity:::Was W able to do his job as President?
    I suspect there are many frat-boy types who couldn't or wouldn't study nor do the work necessary so they gained this "benefit" telepathically. This could have been extended to their professional life as well::In most of these cases they don't have what it takes to do their jobs. It is temptation which buys their confidence for life, ensuring no progress is made.
    I think employment charity is FAR more common than people may believe.
    Another example how they tempted people in this manner is the procurement of sexual relations.
    Keep raping these poor girls. You're going to end up as one in your next life.

    Another feature which the Gods offer as a clue is very foreboading and ominous. Mt. Zion is a mountain to the north of Diablo (the eye of The Beast) and one which has a working quarry at its base. Consistant with the decay we experience in society, Mt. Zion is being eaten away, slowly stripped of its resources, until one day paradise will be gone forever.

    If people only understood the importance of good parents. You won't be going anywhere without them. And it won't happen unless you are one first.
