In June last year, Stephen Dudley, aged 17, was brutally beaten into unconsciousness after rugby practice at school by two other boys aged 16 and 18, particularly in the neck. He was taken to hospital, but died shortly afterward from a combination of both his injuries and a previously undiagnosed heart condition that was exacerbated by the attack.

The two attackers have been sentenced to: 0 years imprisonment. $0 in financial compensation to the grieving family. 0 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds of community service.

They got off scot-free without any legal consequences, is what I'm saying. Mr. Dudley, the father of the victim, took it quite well considering. I'm amazed at his self-restraint. I'd likely have gone on a murderous rampage of my own were I in his shoes. Considering what just happened, I'd be actively encouraged to do so.

Schoolboy death: Family's frustration boils over

The frustration of Stephen Dudley's family boiled over in court this morning when the judge decided not to convict a teen who assaulted the schoolboy.

The 18-year-old, whose name is permanently suppressed, attacked 15-year-old Stephen from the side after a rugby practice - punching him in the neck and continuing the attack while Stephen was on the ground.

Justice Helen Winkelmann indicated early in the sentencing process she would grant the teen a discharge without conviction, to the anger of the Dudley family in the public gallery.

"You're f***ing joking," his father Brent Dudley shouted.

"His actions caused my son's death... That's justice for you New Zealand. The law's an ass."

A 16-year-old boy previously came before the High Court after also admitting assaulting Stephen.

He too was discharged without conviction earlier this year.

The 18-year-old was to have faced trial for manslaughter but in June pleaded guilty to an amended charge of assault with intent to injure.

West Auckland boy Stephen died after a school rugby training session on June 6 last year.

An argument between he and the 16-year-old looked likely to result in a fight, which attracted the older boy to the scene.

After he and the other boy launched a sustained attack, the pair left Stephen on the ground unconscious.

He did not throw a punch.

He was rushed to Auckland City Hospital but died a short time later.

Critically, medical examinations showed an undiagnosed heart condition contributed to his death.

As a result the Crown withdrew the manslaughter charge against the older defendant after receiving two expert reports on cardiac pathology and arrhythmia.

Today the court heard emotional victim impact statements from Stephen's mother, father and sister.

Brent Dudley was particularly critical of the teen's actions, calling him "the hand of evil" while staring at him in the dock.

"The actions you took were nothing but cowardice and brutality," he said.

"He was a lot smaller than you and you attacked our son from behind. He had no idea about the attack he was to be subjected to.

"Any thoughts of forgiveness are out of the question at this stage. I hold you entirely responsible for the death of our son... you own that."

Defence lawyer John Munro said his client had been excluded from school and experienced severe social isolation because of what happened.

He called it "a very very poor error of judgement" and stressed how much he had learned from the experience, giving speeches to young people at his church about the consequences.

The sentencing closes the legal chapter on a 14-month trauma for the Dudley family during which Stephen's mum Mona also appeared before the court when she accidentally shot her husband Brent with an airgun while they argued.

She was eventually discharged without conviction but the pellet which lodged inside Brent Dudley's chest was left by doctors because of its proximity to his heart.

That is messed up.

As much as I hate Michael Bay's juvenile directing skills, I at least have to concede that explosions do liven everything up.


Sadly this version would most likely be more popular than the original. UGH, people.

Racism is a social pathogen that refuses to go away. But it used to be worse. So much worse. Cracked has dug up some comic book pages from the shameful days of the Golden and Silver Ages of Comics (1930s - 1970s), from DC and Marvel. This was the stuff your parents and grandparents were reading as kids... and it explains why racism has refused to die. It's real eye-opening, soul-destroying stuff. I'm not fucking kidding. You've been warned.

I'm disappointed that Scotland voted no in their independence referendum. But at least I have my own vote to cast tomorrow to decide NZ's next Parliament. Despite the pervasive electioneering by all the major parties, I'm unimpressed by them as a whole. After all, I'm of the opinion that choosing a politician is like deciding which STD is right for you. I am, however, strongly tempted to vote for this guy.



That pineapple looks like it would make a fine MP. Or a suitable object to ram up Winston Peters' ass.

It's over! It's finally over! We never have to see his ugly mug ever again! :D I mentioned this before, but traditionally, every Christmas, the world's creepiest ever Santa is bolted onto the Whitcouls building on Queen Street. It looks a little something like this:

Tell me Joey: Do you like Candy Canes?


It has haunted the minds of children and sane adults alike for over fifty years, but no longer! The funding needed to keep it up has now run dry.

YAAAAAY!!! :rbg:

Eh? Wait, what's this? It's got a new sponsor?! :shock:


NOOOOOOOOOO!!! :o

Ah, love. Is there a more beautiful emotion? Anything purer or more selfless? It's an absolute good that can't possibly do any wrong.

Which begs the question: How can Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling totally ruin it in the most horrifying way possible? Quite easily, actually. Let's talk about marriage. :twisted:


You don't want to know what love is

Someone showed this to me a number of years ago, but I haven't been able to find it again until now. As someone who listens to black metal, I think it's one of the funniest things I've ever read.

Quote:
The 101 Rules of Black Metal:

1. Don't be gay.
2. Be "true".
3. All people who aren't "true" are gay.
4. Be grim.
5. Be necro.
6. Be simultaneously grim and necro if at all possible.
7. Break things while being grim and necro.
8. Don't have fun at concerts. Stand around with arms crossed.
9. Repeat all above while denouncing organized religion in any form.
10. Never ever, EVER under ANY circumstances...
11. ...Listen to Peccatum.
12. When someone asks you if you enjoy the music of Mayhem, point out that you only enjoy the music of "the true" Mayhem. Maniac is gay.
13. Don't play with fuzzy things, excepting that by "play" you mean "burn".
14. Don't be Dani Filth.
15. Never, ever, under any circumstances utter the phrase "Kenny G slams, man."
16. Don't be Dani Filth.
17. When your mom tells you to take out the garbage tell her that you're too metal to remove refuse.
18. Run for it!
19. Sodomize a virgin whore.
20. Sodomize anything that is not male. (Fuzzy things look out!)
21. Make sure your album goes out of print about 3 years after its release... so it becomes 'cult'.
22. When in doubt, say "True Norwiegian Black Metal!"
23. If that doesn't work, blast beats can fill any silence.
24. Turn any cross you find upside-down.
25. Nipple twisting is not a blackmetal activity..
26. Write a cult, underground, grim and necro zine. Feature only interviews with bands no one has heard of, even "true" blackmetallers.
27. Never ever, EVER, EVER be open-minded.
28. Never write songs less than 15 minutes long and containing less than 15 adjectives in the title.
29. a) paint face. b) go in woods. c) act like troll.
30. Don't be Mortiis (or Dani Filth).
31. Don't wear white shoes after Labor Day.
32. Don't make jokes only your mom would get.
33. Don't make jokes.
34. When in doubt, scowl with eyes downturned.
35. Don't eat Marshmellow Peeps.
36. To producers of black metal albums: remember...no low end! If it doesn't hurt to listen to, it can't be "true".
37. Make sure that no less than half of the musicians on your album are "session" members.
38. When in concert, always growl names of songs so that they are imperceptible. This will ensure that anyone who doesn't have your "cult" LP won't get it.
39. Never play live.
40. When getting ready to go to a show, completely forget that the other people there are not going to the show to look at you.
41. Use barbed wire whenever possible. (Note: this assists in being both "necro" and "grim".)
42. When asked by a non true BMer what BM is, say something like, "BM is the raw essence of pure black evil in man", in any case, make sure that by the conversations end, the other person still has no idea what black metal is.
43. Drive one of your band members to suicide, and claim he died because of the "mainstream" "infecting" the "scene".
44. Reform with "old members" and release an album intended to produce commercial success.
45. When it flops say that you meant it to fail cause anything less wouldn't be "true".
46. Have a side project. Ensure that all other members of your band also have side projects.
47. Fill out the other slots in your other member's side projects as "session" musicians.
48. Record everything in the same studio with the same producer/instruments/equipment/etc.
49. Make sure your album cover never consists of more than three colors (color options allowed: grey, black, white).
50. Publicly state that your band is "non-religious", then use the word "Satan" over 400 times on your one-song thirty-minute album.
51. Never stuff your shoes to make them appear puffy and avoid the wearing of backwards baseball caps if at all possible. Red ones in particular.
52. Insist that music should never progress and that it should still sound the same way it did 9 friggin years ago.
53. Never say "friggin".
54. Never finish anything you start.
55. The word "Hail" is the only appropriate greeting whenever greeting someone "true".
56. If feeling especially true on a given occasion, try "Infernal Hails".
57. All logos must include illegible writing and at least one inverted cross and/or pentagram. This is non-negotiable.
58. When referring to sex with a Metal Chick use only the terminology "sticking my clouded frost-spire into her gates of attrition".
59. Design complex logo for your grim black metal band on binder paper in the middle of math class.
60. Accept every interview you're offered...then pretend that you really don't enjoy being interviewed.
61. Thoroughly enjoy Star Trek: The Next Generation.
62. Wait... scratch that last one. (See rule 1)
63. Never divulge to any outsiders the Exact Day of the Divine Arrival of the Massive Hoof. Instead, inform them that they should be ready to suck the Dark Lord's greasy @#%$ at any time.
64. Use the phrase "suck the dark lord's greasy @#%$" whenever possible.
65. If you ever find that you have somehow become a member of Hecate Enthroned, be sure to piece together a music video of scrap footage of yourself walking around in the woods at night looking evil. Only, instead of being night make sure it's the middle of the @#%$ day, and instead of looking evil, look dorky instead. (See also: rule 1)
666. Own hundreds of black metal albums, demos and bootlegs. Listen to approximately 8 of them regularly.
67. Humping a ceramic Virgin Mary in front of your uncle's house is not "pimping it" (unless you tell her you're done then blow in her face like a shotgun when she turns around).
68. Refrain from using keyboard smilies when communicating via the Internet. Single acceptable smily: -(
69. Why isn't the word "Northern" in your album title yet!? Get to it! Amatuers...
70. Spelling things correctly is neither grim nor necro.
71. Norsk Arysk Blak Metal! Rahhh!!
72. No matter where you're from, pretend you're from Norway and therefore 'true'.
73. Don't be Dani Filth. (I think that's clear)
74. All pets you own now will henceforth be known as "Crucifier". Any pets you own in the future will also be known as "Crucifier".
75. True black metaller: "Many of our dark hymns are influenced by the mighty Tolkien... You have not read the works of Tolkien!? Nerd. Wait a minute... It appears I am the nerdy one after all!"
76. @#%$, I'm talking to myself again.
77. Norsk Arysk Blak Metal! Rahhh!!
78. That's better, on with the interview!
80. Create inverted crosses in all possible instances. Suggested tools: Drum sticks, twigs, pool cues, pencils, etc. (See also "clouded frost spire")
81. Profess publicly that you are a Satanist and add that you are in touch with Norway's ancient Pagan past. Pretend that somehow those two facts make sense in conjunction.
82. Stick your dick in the mashed potatoes.
83. Don't make Beastie Boys references.
84. Don't make references.
85. Satanus. Huh huh huhuhuhuh.
86. Huhuhuhuhuhuhuh.
87. If possible, design the title of your album so that it consists of three completely unrelated words. Dimmu Borgir are the master of this (i.e. Enthrone Darkness Triumphant, Spiritual Black Dimensions, Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, Godless Savage Garden) but you may also want to refer to Immortal's "Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism".
88. As we all know, women have no place in the homoerotic world of black metal, but if your girl friend still won't stop bugging you about wanting to be involved in your band, give her a lame spoken word part or something.
89. Never form a band containing you, your wife and/or girlfriend, and some gay looking guy. (See also: rule 11)
90. Go to bed when your mom tells you to.
91. If it's rare, it must be good. Order it immediately.
92. I will not add that as it is not metal enough.
93. Are you metal enough to be reading this?
94. Own every Darkthrone release. Listen to exactly none of them.
95. Own cult-as-@#%$ shirts of bands you not only own no releases of, but also haven't even heard.
96. Use the phrase "cult-as-@#%$" whenever possible.
97. Attempt to randomly throw the word "@#%$" during random segments of your songs. (Kindly refer to Attilla's work on De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas.)
98. In order to make your recording more incomprehensible and therefore more "cult", be sure to either select a singer who has only a tenuous grasp on the language to be sung. (Acceptable languages: Norwegian, Latin, Orcish.)
99. I'll tell you what your album lay out needs...Some titties.
100. And you know what else? How long since you acted like a troll? Pick up that makeup and fight, soldier!
101. You mean to tell me you read this whole thing when you could've have been prancing about in the forest with an axe? For shame! For shaaaaame!!

I'll answer your post on death metal with a much more naturalistic tune.

The tui is a bird found only in NZ and despite the near-apocalyptic introduction of mammal predators by settlers, it remains one of our most common birds. Unlike most of our other indigenous birds, the tui can thrive outside the bush and live in the suburbs. It's song is pretty distinctive, you could even call it an informal symbol of Kiwiana; its singing in the background in ads, TV and film is iconic of NZ.



So why am I mentioning it in What the F@#$? Well, because it is a bird that possesses an incredible vocal range (making some sounds that cannot be picked up by the human ear), along with an impressive talent for mimicry. Thought parrots only had that ability? Think again. Meet Woof Woof, the Talking Tui in this video link. I can't set up the video on this site, unfortunately, but I can set up another to give you a taste of how complex their songs can get.



Admittedly Woof Woof is fairly atypical, since he was kept in a sanctuary. But in the old days the Maori used to keep tui as pets because you could teach them to mimic human speech so perfectly. They can even match your voice right down to your exact pitch and accent, like Woof Woof did with his Kiwi handler. Hell, in the suburbs, you often hear tui mimicking other birds and electrical appliances, especially phones. And studies over here have found that tui in different regions of New Zealand have their own accents, though with all the mimicry they do it's hard to tell where their native tongues end and their foreign influences begin.

This video?

Yeah, that is pretty impressive indeed.

(Also, it was black metal, not death metal. There's a difference. :P )

I didn't put up the video because for some reason it won't let you play it on this site, you'd need to go to Youtube directly. I don't know, maybe in the States it works for you...

Anyway, after digging around for something really bizarre for Christmas, I was introduced to an unbelievably broken, preachy, and overall batshit insane Christian game... which really isn't all that unusual since most Christian games end up looking unbelievably broken, preachy and overall batshit insane. :lol:

But then Jontron introduced me to a Christian game that blows all of them out of the water. It's name is... The Zoo Race. I can't possibly describe to you just how fucked up it is, it just needs to be seen. That, and I have Jontron to explain for me.



The miracle of all this is despite their insanity, Christian games are still being made

This has got to be one of the dumbest things I've ever seen anyone do.



I like how he's bragging at the end about how he "still has his thumbs". He's lucky neither he nor anyone else in his crew lost a hell of a lot more than that.
