I0TA's News

Posted by I0TA - October 1st, 2018


What's better? Liver cancer from excessive drinking, wait until leukemia come back and bite me, OD on DMT, jump off the bridge, or slit my own artery? Fam, all my bases are covered. I'm so depressed and drunk now, joking about death ain't doing shit, doing it might help.

I'mma complete failure in anything I do. Fail at music and fail at life. Ugh, shit I don't feel good. I have work in the morning... maybe i'll choose one of the option above and I don't ever have to go to work again.

i don't know, we'll see... good night

Have you ever thought about making music for the present instead of the past, future or some sort of stupid fantasy? Instead of writing music for the kings and queens that long dead, why not write music for the slaves? Or writing music about bullshit like fairies, knights, dragons or superheroes where your everyday's heroes are your own parents? Have you ever written your dearest music about your own loved ones?

I find two genres of music that define the present best: hip-hop and punk. And I'm not talking about Eminem shit rap or Linkin Park fakey. I'm talking about these and those.

Live for the reality, not the dream. Write music about what's real.

A) WEED LEGALIZATION

Canada is the 2nd country in the world (after Uruguay) to legalize weed and on October 17 it's officially live! As of now the best place in Canada for loosest weed law would be Alberta (@AceMantra you lucky bastard!) and BC. However the only place you can smoke in public is Quebec, yet for some reason it bans home grown. Ontario (where I'm from) unfortunately only available on online OCS until April 2019 for retail store. Fucking Doug Fat Ford gonna privatize this shit. For now you can possess or carry up to 30 g of weed aka 1 oz. Private posession up to 150 g or 5 oz. You can grow up to 4 plants at home, except in Quebec.

B) BUY ANY GUN PARTS WITHOUT LICENSE (except lower receiver)

Says you are a crazy motherfucker who's too high on legal weed and went to Al Flaherty's (yes there's a gun store in Toronto) to purchase a Magpul AR mag for $20 CAD just to troll dumb yuppies at Starbucks. It will ship to your home after few days. That's the fucking stupid thing about Canadian gun laws. When they says your AR rifle is restricted, what they mean by it is only your AR lower IS restricted and the rest of the rifle IS NOT. Same for any other firearms. See, they said that only the "action" parts (with serial number, aka lower) needed license, no one will give a fuck if you spent $1K on a .50 BMG barrel for no apparent reason.

As a gun owner, I enjoy this freedom. I don't want no stupid hassle to type out my fucking PAL numbers everytime I want order something. God I hope dumb liberals don't ban this shit. Fucking criminals are trying hard to bypass this laws by milling or 3D printing their own lowers. Goddamn fuckers.

C) TALLEST VERTICAL DROP

Says you want to off yourselves but with style, or just wanna wingsuit in the freeze, Go to Auyuittuq National Park, Nunavut and do that at Mount Thor.

D) HIGHEST TIDES

Put a boat on the beach and wait for it to float in 6 hours. Then wait for it to stuck on the beach again. In 6 more hours.

E) LARGEST UNDERGROUND COMMERCIAL COMPLEX

If you've lived in Toronto longer than a year you know what I'm talking about. While generic tourists and newcomers love the CN tower because it sucks, or the overtly expensive St. Lawrence Market, there is one place that most Torontonian missed out. PATH.

PATH is the world's largest underground commercial complex with over 30 km long and over 50 buldings connected. It spans to the entire downtown (within the lower U of Line 1 and between St. George and Bloor stations of Line 2).

Says if you want to walk until your legs sore up. PATH is for you.

(Fun fact, when I was homeless PATH was the one of the few warming centres that were quite a paradise for a hobo like me. I mean it was the few ways that entertained my ass)

Alone, afraid yet amazed. There were no great tunes for the halls of monarchy. There were no tales for the knights, the polices and armies. The only sounds that rumbled and quake the palace that built of pain, were the sounds of angry peasants, farmers, maids, builders and assorted workers of the world. The musicians that weave the sounds of insurrection were the only those who came from this very class of workers. Music should empower the oppressed and not to embrace the oppressor.


It comes down to this. I made this account and deleted my old one for a sole reason. I would like to write music that represent people who align and identify with my, for the people that have more common with me than vast numbers of "self-made" musicians who proclaimed themselves as 'talented'.

What more disgusting is the cinematic and orchestra scene. The very definition of bourgeoisie in music industry.

This account was born as a project, to prove that you don't need to be a privileged and rich asshole to write catchy music, because if you need expensive gears to write catchy music, then it's you who cheat on the fake talents.


Side note, there are big projects coming up. This will be a game changer for me. Stay tuned.

So I've been trolling my co-workers at break time, to the point they got so irritated they avoid talking to me. That's fine, being the tech person they'll need me again when they can't turn on their workstation... *evil smile*. Two real simple responses. Whenever they said something funny, sad or just questions, I'll simply respond skoden or stoodis. Those who don't get it will give a bitch resting face. Those who do, which is like 2 so far, will either laugh... if they are person of color, or offended... if they are whitey, cos you know Canadian patriotism...

Fast forward, wtf is skoden? Well, it's a native meme that has been going around the territory recently. Made by natives and only natives understand the full joke. But I aim to break that ice, cos you know, I'm the only native on this community. Apparently, "Canadians" and the government are so fucking offended by this harmless joke. So a friend or foe tells you "you wanna fight huh you piece of shit?" you will respond "skoden" (let's go then) and they will respond back as "stoodis" (let's do this) then the next person will say "kayden" (k then) and so on. Jokes can be made for various occassions, but normally it involves being drunk af. There are more inside jokes on it but I'm gonna leave it be since white people like to make more assumption when they are confused.

6170223_153708198381_skoden.jpg

White people think it was offensive for some dumbfuck reason. White people are offended at the dumbest shit ever. This is not news. But getting offended at a meme is the new low for "Canadians". The made a lot of fuss about it in the local news. The meme made CBC frontpage when an anonymous graf writer tagged the Sudbury water tower. Hoo boys, white people went apeshit about the tagging destroyed their shitty and rusty landmark, as if Sudbury isn't a white trash shit hole to drown rats in already.

Like whiteys get pissed at the retarded shit ever but when poor people in the country, especially poor NTVs can't get housing or food, they think it's because our faults that we're poor, and we drank too much booze or do too much drugs. Like they'd blame you for everything as long as they don't have to spend a cent on improving infrastructure in the country for poor people, letting alone improving lives for millions of NTVs.

But what I'm amused by some white people on here having funky conversation while back, won't name whom because it'll hurt their fee fee, said that why should "minorities" be giving a shit by the "majority". Cues in eugenics eh folks? Fucking entitled honkies, that's why I cut out my time to stop interaction with this community, because there are so much bullshit going on. Well yeah, we USED TO BE the majority until you committed the worst genocide in human history and stole this land. But that's cool eh because similar kind to your people used to kill your people in WW2 too so I guess that's fair and square.

Blaming minority for the crime done by the majority? Sound familiar?

If you are too stupid to understand what is going on this planet then maybe you should look in the mirror and shut the fuck up.

Every time I rewatch this it get weirder every time. A drunk Zimmer is a rare Zimmer. Apparently Hans Zimmer couldn't pronounce the name of Ólafur Arnalds. It got worse when he was drunk... Watch til the end, it worth every penny.

What is it like to be the threat of the society?

It's not a simple thing to say, or to be called that way. Being a threat to the structure that going be collapse, and especially when you be there and make sure it must collapse. It is the colossal perception that things will find their ways to flush and eliminate you. Now this is not a paranoid perspective or even an egoistic emotion. This is merely of what can and will happen. This post is the preemptive and prophetic observation of what going to happen the next day, next year, next decade and what will affect our generations.

But I embrace what will come to people like me. Because we stand for what is reality.


First and foremost, I'm an anarchist, a vet and a helper. Doing nothing while being one of those is already put me on the list, letting alone being all of those things. Let's rewind it and be more frank: I'm a devout anarchist and have serious skills and experience that have critical consequence to not just the establishment but the system. I was an ammunition technical officer in the war. I'm not going to talk of my past because I'm absolutely hated it, of what I did and what I carry. If you wish to learn more about my past, you are free to learn from my close friends on NG or other community.

As for being a helper, and why it could and will be a threat to the society. I'll summarize it. Being a helper has a lot of common with being in poverty. Being poor is a perk, being poor means you are more likely of giving a shit about the people next to you. Sympathy is for everyone. But the power of empathy only belong to the poor. Having the power of empathy means you will have to get down to other people's level and get them through the struggle. Being a helper is never unique to any single person. All poor people are capable of this. And the problem rises when helpers decided to come together and do something about the establishment.

That's how you got the working class, proletariat, lumpen and so on.

The sole existence of the proletariat, and futher to the unity of the proles, are the threats to the establisment and the entire system. The establishment as ironically as it seems, depended on the proles, but through exploitation and divide on the working class. Quintin Hogg, a robber baron and British MP once said: "If you don't give the people the reparations they will give you a revolution." So how do capitalists bait the working class with reparations? UBI, welfare, benefit and the most obscured but obvious of all: creating the new pseudo-class, the middle class. What's greater than dividing the working class than making them fight among themselves than some are little more well off than your fast food cashier or the homeless person sleep next to your office?


What does being an anarchist have anything to do with all these?

Unlike tankies (MLM) and other left tendencies, anarchists do not believe in the authority of the establishment to come and save the day. The end goal of anarchists is to gain complete abolishment of authority and hierarchy of any kind, with any mean possible. Whether that involve the direct actions of blocking a pipeline, or bombing the parliament, you name it. Anarchism is the greatest threat to any establishment and threat to the society of capitalism. The sole existence of anarchism is to bring total annihilation to the system. An anarchist's interest is in align with the interest of the working class.

Anarchism is at the same time, the cancer of old society, and the cure of new revolution.


It's the death sentence that each anarchist carry on themselves since the day of their acceptance in the tendencies. That the old society can and will round them to some camp and murder in the night. But we ain't going to let that happen, to ourselves or the people we protect. We are prepared for it. I am prepared to severe all my past for the new world.

As the nihilist anarchist Sergey Nechayev said:

The revolutionary is a doomed man. He has no private interests, no affairs, sentiments, ties, property nor even a name of his own. His entire being is devoured by one purpose, one thought, one passion - the revolution. Heart and soul, not merely by word but by deed, he has severed every link with the social order and with the entire civilized world; with the laws, good manners, conventions, and morality of that world. He is its merciless enemy and continues to inhabit it with only one purpose - to destroy it.

There are many kinds of anarchists. Syndicalists who change the society through workplace organizing. Communists who aim for total abolishment of market and money. Mutualists who free the market and collectivize properties. Greens who want total animal liberation. Queer and trans anarchist for LGBTQ intersectionalism. Feminists who for woman liberation. Egoists who liberate their own thoughts and minds.

As for me, I'm a platformist. Platformists believe in the act of carrying out praxis and unification of theories, tendencies and organizing tactics. Platformism is the most powerful tendency that embraced by millions people of color worldwide. Neverless, anarchists unify under the banner of anti-racism, anti-fascism, anti-hierarchy, anti-colonialism and anti-capitalism.


This news post is merely a small and simplified summary of the struggle. Now you know what is it like to be the threat of this society. And what an anarchist, a vet and a prole could do when time comes.

It's strange, coming this far to realize that all those you call friends, all those merits you have gained and all the things you have created... All of them will come to the end the moment you completely embrace the power of anarchy.

You are no longer chained to the illusion. You are free to observe and partake in the reality.

To end this post, I'll share a quote that is synonymous with Nechayev's quote, coming from a favorite anti-capitalism movie:

The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

For the past 5 months my follower count stayed the same (146)... or did it? Well turned out some people followed me because of my music, that doesn't always mean they like my unpopular, twisted perspectives, or okay with my extreme and radical mindset. If you have been my followers for over 3 months, you're already used this fact: once every while, I post something edgy, thoughtful, or cynical stuff that throw people off.

Now this is where it gets real.

If you have been my followers for a long time, you've probably known it by now that I don't just stop at seeing people as follower, but I treat you equally as friends. I always look after people I call friends. When they are at the hard place, I usually give more than just emotional support. After all I have been on this website like forever, watching NG grown, witnessing friends come and go.

Turned out... Posting cynical and edgy shit that throw people off is the best method to validate if your followers were truly commited to liking your contents, and proceed to upgrade them to your best friends.

Well, that was how my follower list stayed at 146 (ayy lmao my old account gained followers quicker than this one)


Having a small fanbase is much easier and truthful than having like 1K of people who don't even listen or view to your contents. This is why I cherish every review y'all been leaving on my stuff, because they are invaluable to me, and I'll make sure that they all get the replies.

Thank you to the 146 friends I have.

I have made a decision not to participate in any future competition beside donation of prizes to them. Not because I couldn't win, which prove many times if I stop fooling around and get real, I can pack serious punches with my experience. But time changed. I have wisen up to learn that contests and competitions actually slow down my creativity and not adding healthy thoughts to my composition.

Here are the problems:

  • Competitions required exhausting stress to reach deadlines
  • Competitions forced your creativity in tunneled conditions, therefore no free thoughts of your own.
  • Competitions created selfishness, arrogance, hatred and divisive among friends.
  • Competitions are byproduct of capitalism self-indoctrinated false of bootstrapping.

I'm a practicioner of open learning, freethought and non-hierarchical creativity. I see competition is just another chains that limit my creativity.

Example of music created in completely free-of-competition environment:

Mutual Aid

I Fight For The Users

Walkaway

The Extraordinary Liberator

Affinity
