We must realize that there is no way for us to overcome all our external foes. If we defeat one enemy, another always arises to take his place. If we kill someone who has harmed us, his relatives and friends will attack us in revenge. How is it possible, Shantideva asks, to be free from all enemies who are as infinite as the expanse of space? Only be defeating our own anger can we overcome those who would harm us.

"I am your COMMANDER!"

Put this together over the weekend from a couple of cheap-o licensed costumes I modified and some tactical gear. Now I have something decent I can wear at Youmacon on Halloween weekend (looks like Velma will wait ‘til next year.) Sorry the photos are kinda crappy. I’ll have better ones taken this weekend. COBRAAAAA!!!

1987. Retaliation

is the second and final album by band Carnivore.

Retaliation sounds as inventive, original and challenging a couple of decades later, a creative album that features a truly own sound. Back then there were thousands of crossover, hardcore and thrash acts which didn’t offer anything peculiar or characteristic, but Steele & co. had the cool ideas, inspiration and efficiency to make something special.  

Soon after their second album was released, the band broke up and Peter Steele formed a new band called Subzero, which would later be renamed Type O Negative. According to the sleeve notes of the “Top Shelf Edition” of their second album, the first Type O Negative album, Slow Deep and Hard was composed largely from material originally written for Carnivore.
