[Part 2 is here
Hello! I've been really excited about RE-ANIMATOR so I've found myself getting really
into EE again.
Before I start, I want to point out that there are going to be SPOILERS if my guesses are correct
. So if you're super picky about that stuff, you probably should stop reading.
I've been listening to some of the older stuff and I've found myself thinking a lot about how the two new songs relate to older material. I think everybody noticed the giant dead fox with tiny humans on it from Tin (The Manhole) and the cover of Man Alive in the video for In Birdsong and I remember that over the years I've seen a few interviews where Jon mentions wanting to bring back characters from older songs. Specifically, someone in an At The Border fan Q&A
asked if the fox would return and he said that he thinks about the fox and Qwerty a lot, but that he would wait a while before bringing them back. He said he had "some ideas about a (hidden) character from GTH though, he still has a lot to say.
Of course, the hidden character we know from Get To Heaven is Thomas Silhouette, someone who we were never quite sure we had figured out. I'll try to summarize what we know about him briefly! It's not in chronological order but hopefully it's coherent: ---Thomas Silhouette---
- The first clue we got about this character was a lyric in Fortune 500 that EE's verified Genius account pointed out as important. The words "isolate the mouths" are italicized in the lyrics (which goes against Genius's style guidelines, by the way) and in the annotation. EE (probably just Jon) said "These are the only words on Get to Heaven that should be written in italics."
- In the comments on said annotation, a user named Cloxton77 asked why. "If you pause Spring/Sun video when the beat drops near the end you might be in luck." So they did! For what has to be like a single frame at the 2:34 mark, there are some words barely visible across the top of the screen. It says "so hot he mutilate" (try inverting the image in MS Paint). Add an S to that (or have better color vision than me or something. idk.) and you have an anagram of those italicized lyrics. We had a discussion about "so hot he mutilates" here about two years ago where someone pointed out that it fits the concept behind the SSWD music video's look:
“The song talks about seasons passing and getting older, so we wanted to concentrate on the sun and make it into a kind of oppressive force – positive and life-giving, but also burning and destructive.
“We used ultra-violet and infra-red cameras to get a look at the sun damage on our skin, and give everything an alien look. We shot in a quarry so we could have a clear horizon and a dry, hot, desert scene.
“Most of the sun effects were completed afterwards because we picked a rainy day to shoot, though we did spray everything silver in order to get some good light reflections and add to the heatproof/astronaut feel.”
The sun is so hot that it "mutilates" skin. They pointed out that the narrator in Fortune 500 is killing the queen by trepanning her. Surely drilling a hole in somebody's head counts as mutilation! Another person pointed out that this narrator is hot
- So how did we get "Thomas Silhouette" from that? A hint in another At The Border Q&A.
Q: How do you feel knowing that there are people who listen to your songs literally hundreds of times and analyse them and are so obsessed with you/your art?
A: I think it’s awesome! It feels amazing, especially because it’s what I used to do myself. I put in lots of hidden things for the people that do this. For example, there is a name that is hidden in Get to Heaven, it’s a male name, first and surname. So far one person has discovered it that I’m aware of. I’ve got plans to expand this particular thing in the future.
The only anagram we can get that fits that is "Thomas Silhouette"
Q: Does Thomas Silhouette represent anyone or anything in particular? is he the politician/martythe man that is going to commit a terrible act on Get To Heaven?
A: You’re very close yes, the name itself has meaning too.
I hadn't seen anyone tackle this just yet, so I gave it a go. It turns out that the meaning of the name "Thomas" is "Twin".
One of Fortune 500's standout lyrics--which shares a cadence with the anagram--is "my twin, my twin, my dragon twin goes hard
". What's a dragon twin? EE said
it's "a secret, awesome, terrifying version of yourself
" has meaning and implications to it too. A silhouette is, of course, a likeness
of a person created by tracing their shadow
in profile. It's then cut out on dark paper and pasted onto light paper or colored-in black on a white background. Apparently they were very popular but were also joked about as being a really cheap type of portrait. They were a way that you could get a portrait done without being particularly rich or powerful
- Someone in the reddit AMA for Get To Heaven asked where Thomas Silhouette is. "he is here now." Pretty ominous. Probably a joke. It sounds like something weird Jon would say.
So... that's what we know about our boy T-Sil! ---Here's what I'm guessing about him---
- We can safely assume that he's the narrator for Fortune 500. As Jon explained: "If the record is leading up to, or in the aftermath of, a horrific event, then “Fortune 500” is the event. It tracks the awful thing second-by-second, and it’s a metaphorical break into Buckingham Palace, and getting the Queen, drilling a hole in her head to let the spirits out, killing all the dogs… it’s got this core of doubt in it though, and the narratoprotagonist keeps saying to himself ‘they told me I should do this… I don’t want to but I think it’s the right thing to do’. There’s this line – “I’ve won! I’ve won! They told me that I’ve won!” – it’s the sense that this guy’s there, bloodied hands with sirens blaring outside, having a moment of realisation, asking himself ‘what the fuck have I done?’. It’s supposed to be the last few seconds of doubt that goes through a suicide bomber’s mind, feeling peer-pressured into blowing themselves up. The fact is though that this is happening all over the world, and people are getting cajoled into doing crimes that they don’t know much about. The horror of the doubt is far worse than the act, for the terrorist I mean. It’s this ‘oh shit… maybe this isn’t what God wants’. I think it’s the darkest moment on the record."
- He doesn't want to be violent but he's being urged on by people that he considers his superiors. These people might be a terrorist group that's brainwashed him, but it's ambiguous enough that they could actually be just auditory hallucinations. Lines like "they sing in my ears", "they speak in ways I do not understand", and "I am compelled" suggest that they might not be real. When people hallucinate or suffer from delusions they often believe that they're being instructed by an authority figure. Jon's explanation there leaves it open to interpretation, which is fun.
- He's apparently pissed off about economic injustices and power hierarchies. That's the whole idea behind Get To Heaven, right? It's an album about becoming a terrorist and the thing that seems to have radicalized the terrorist in almost every instance is rage against greed, excess, and abuse of power. He thinks our society is spiritually dead and wants to go back to an imagined simpler time, like most terrorists. But he's more left-wing: hating war, leaders and authority figures who abuse their power (in religion, leadership positions, law enforcement), yuppies, materialism and the rise of right-wing politicians. He's kind of a brogressive but he's troubled by legitimately awful things and he's painted in a sympathetic light a lot of the time.
- Thomas Silhouette is Jon's alter-ego. That's why he's so sympathetic! It's not exactly subtle. The things that Jon has said in interviews indicate that he's left-wing and the way he sings stuff about the alt-right (or from their perspective) make it clear that he finds them reprehensible. Look at basically all of A Fever Dream. I think that when Jonathan tries to imagine what would it be like to be a terrorist, what could make him mad enough to kill, it's probably greed and cruelty. Someone on the ATB Facebook group called this a form of Jungian shadow work. Someone else has implied that this is Jon's Boochie Flagrante (thanks for pointing that out to me, u/wilkins-micawber!). I think the biggest things I've found that confirm this for me are this:
"I'm not resolutely patriotic, I'm not into the general narrative of the West. I'm quite 'anti-West' in a lot of ways, and I do sympathise with some - some - of the things that people would never even consider. That's not at all to say I agree with any of the awful, awful shit, however. I'm certainly closer to that stance than a lot of people... but talking about these things and understanding them is important, as opposed to putting them in a box and throwing them away; that's a way to perpetuate the problems in the world, and, as stupid as it sounds, I feel far too bold to be doing that." And
"[No Reptiles is] written as if I'm rejected from society just about to do something awful. I wrote that at a time when I was feeling quite separate from, even against, society as a whole. I was feeling quite hateful towards my own country and my own place in the world, and feeling like I didn't really like Britain or what it stands for. I don't necessarily feel like that all the time, but I do sometimes."
"I was essentially trying to inhabit the minds of the [extremists] that do this stuff and saying 'could I ever do it myself?' And the answer is yes, maybe I could. And that's a really horrible thing to face."
---Speculation about RE-ANIMATOR---
- Finally... We have a newer member here by the name of u/T_Silhouette. He's been very proud to show off a recent 3-D art project of his and thanked a few subreddits for helping him make it. He's also pretty confident that Violent Sun is gonna be a fan favorite. Hi, Jon! =D
This is where there are probably gonna be SPOILERS! ...If I'm right.
From what we've been hearing about RE-ANIMATOR so far, it's gonna be about a concept in psychology called Bicameralism. The press releases for In Birdsong
and Arch Enemy are pretty clear about it. Here's what we know about that bicameralism & LP5:
- Jon has had this idea in mind for a while, first hinting at it on the podcast Chips Of Chorlton. I forgot to include timestamps when I transcribed these, but I remember that most of them are in like the first ten minutes & then there's one around... 26 minutes.
“I’ve been working with a big concept in mind that I’m trying to translate into music but it’s not very musical of a concept but it’s really sort of proggy and ridiculous.”
“Not as political in terms of that but it’s probably more out there in terms of concepts. But I don’t want to say what it is which is why I’m being cagey. But it’s going to kind of tie in--I think, I hope--to one of our previous albums."
“I’m just going back to the good one, mate!” (Context: talking about Get To Heaven. Said jokingly, in case that's not obvious.)
“We’ve got lots of songs so far, lyrically it’s coming along, there’s a big concept like I said, it’s sort of based on something that I read recently. Or heard about. It was a podcast, actually.”
The podcast is Stuff To Blow Your Mind and the episodes are Bicameralism are Part 1: The Voice of God
and Part 2: The Silent Pantheon
. I think part 1 is pretty skippable if you already understand the overall concept.
- This concept has been used to explain schizophrenia. Part 2 of that podcast has some examples (~80 minutes in) and Julian Jaynes dedicated a chapter to it in The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. Basically, Jaynes summarized it this way: "The modern schizophrenic is an individual in search of such a culture. But he retains usually some part of the subjective consciousness that struggles against this more primitive mental organization, that tries to establish some kind of control in the middle of a mental organization in which the hallucination ought to do the controlling. In effect, he is a mind bared to his environment, waiting on gods in a godless world."
That ties in perfectly with what Jon told Annie Mac
about the narrator of Arch Enemy!
"It’s sort of about hearing voices in your head. I’ve got this big thing I’m interested in at the moment about this crazy theory where we used to have 2 halves of our mind back in the caveman days & then we became conscious so there’s kind of a lot of stuff I’ve been thinking about that."
Annie asked if the fatberg ends up rising and purging the Earth. Jon says "It’s sort of a question mark. The guy might be crazy, it might all be in his head
There's also an older association with schizophrenia, hallucinations, madness, etc. with the supernatural and divine in older societies. The podcasters mention that when they think of this, they think of fictional worlds like Game Of Thrones where only a few people speak to gods or have access to magical powers. You know what that makes me
think of? "Babe, they call me the medicine man / But my old spells don’t work anymore
". But the true clincher is that NME
quotes Jon as saying that "'Arch Enemy’ sees a modern-day protagonist searching for a meaningful God
Another supposed connection to schizophrenia is Jaynes' claim that the humans of the past often wrote about body parts like hands and feet as if they were separate beings that moved of their own volition and not a part of the person they belong to. He claims that
schizophrenics often have trouble drawing an intact human figure and have body boundary issues. You see where I'm going with this? It's kind of a stretch but "isolate the mouths
" sure ties in with that neatly, doesn't it?
- This narrator also hates capitalism, basically, and is pretty much ready for our society to be destroyed.
"This song is sort of about hearing a voice in your head, but this guy goes to find the voice & all he finds is a fatberg in the sewer & he starts praying to it & he sort of makes it into a god & it’s sort of a metaphor for like all the greed & waste & all the nasty stuff that we throw down the plughole & forget about & all the ways we kind of screw up the world & don’t care about it. It’s kind of grown into this big evil force in the underground, this huge fatberg which is kind of alive. And he’s praying to it saying ‘come back & purge the Earth of all these people that ruined everything & cover everything in a big wall of fat.'”
It's the same kind of misanthropy that could lead someone to terrorism if it got extreme enough. This incarnation of Thomas Silhouette isn't hearing commands to assassinate anyone, instead he's the one begging--and almost sort of giving commands to--his hallucinated god to just wipe the slate clean & start over. Fatberg is pretty Old Testament.
- Okay so I wish I had come to make that last connection to mental illness all by myself, but I didn't. I feel like I would have if I had been more a little more scholarly and read Jaynes' book. But I have to credit the following blog post which totally blew my mind when it pointed that out. It also drew another connection that I hadn't thought of at all! The blog entry in question is called "The Return Of Bicameral Minds". The author, Yuri Barzov, imagines a near future (or an alternate explanation of the present) where everybody starts to go bicameral again.
"Some scholars claimed that the comeback of bicameral minds started as early as the WWII when Nazis were trying to justify their crimes by referring to the point that they just fulfilled orders given by somebody else. Scholars argued that conscious humans couldn’t under any circumstances commit such unparalleled crimes against humanity as Nazis did. The Bicameral Mind theory explained it all. It explained also the rise of suicide terrorist attacks. A bicameral mind doesn’t reason. It takes any order from voices for granted and fulfills it without questioning or hesitation. It has no self to question or hesitate."
That takes us back to the "peer pressure" interpretation of Fortune 500 and Thomas Silhouette as a terrorist. Back to the repeated cult imagery all over Get To Heaven. And obviously, back to A Fever Dream
! The whole thing is about how fascism is making a comeback and the comparisons to Nazis are not subtle
Aside from greed, one of Jon's most frequent complaints in songs is anti-intellectualism and people not thinking for themselves
. As well as people not learning from history
! He's rightfully terrified by all of this stuff that's happening now. He laughs at it too of course but in the more vulnerable moments
on AFD there's this crushing
sense of fear and grief. It's almost like you're watching him mourn the death of the last little shred of faith he had in humanity.
I remember an interview where Jon said that he had had an idea for A Fever Dream
's look would be for the band's look to go full alt-right
“I always want things to be really extreme and the guys always talk me out of it,” he says. “I literally posed the idea of us dressing as far-right twats for this record, going, ‘If you can’t beat them, join them’, all shave our heads,” he chuckles. “Left to my own devices I’d push the satire so far that people wouldn’t be able to see what the real message was.”
Luckily the rest of the band talked him out of it (and I'm glad! These neo-fascists try to play everything they do off as a joke and they have no sense of irony whatsoever). Jon has shaved his head now, which he claimed in the Instagram interview was just something he's wanted to do for a while. His tone seemed sincere when he said it. BUT... when I first saw the cover for RE-ANIMATOR I couldn't help but feel that the way the boys are arranged looks a little bit like... a certain symbol. The swastika is a basic geometric pattern and that's why you can find it in ancient art from all over the world, but let's get real: Nazis ruined it
. I think the cover art is as subtle a nod to the design as you can get without scaring people. Or worse: actually attracting Nazis!
This ties in with another thing Jon said on Radio One:
“...the idea of being a divided person or having two sides of your personality is something I’ve kind of touched on before on other records, of having like your dark side & your light side, things like that. And just having relationships in your life. How you have self will & things like that. How you decide what you’re going to do w/yourself or whether you follow your own path or other people." ---So basically....---
...This post has gotten out of control and I'm now past a reasonable bedtime! But the TLDR version is that Thomas Silhouette is Jon's dark side, he's coming back, and that the concept of the bicameral mind is going to be explored largely through him. We're going to see sides of him we already saw on GTH become integrated with the nightmarish new world of AFD. And I think--and hope--we're going to see him heal this split within himself. EE albums have a tendency to rip open the wounds but they always gently place a bandage on them afterwards.
Anyway... feel free to tell me what you think! I hope I didn't, like, spoil the album if I'm right. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ But I also hope that I'm at least not completely wrong!
--------------------- UPDATE, 5/19 ---------------------
I edited this a little bit for clarity, but I'd like to add a few things. Because, you know, this thing wasn't long enough obviously!
- I'd like to thank u/DieUnendlichkeit for pointing out a really good parallel in Desire's line "you took my mind and left a hollow twin". Not only does that fit so well that it's kind of creepy, it opened up a whole rabbithole with that song. It also reminded me of another thing that u/wilkins-micawber once pointed out to me, which is that the man on the cover of GTH--who we both think of as being Thomas Silhouette!--is at least middle class and probably striving to climb a corporate ladder. He's wearing a suit, and even in this hyper-colorful art style he has a white collar. He looks like "a pencil pusher" (And I suppose you could say he's got the blues. He is literally blue!) being simultaneously attacked and baptized by an obscenely wealthy ruler. He's melting too. A burning yuppie! The idea that Thom Silly is a guy who felt alienated by society and hates the person he's become by trying to fit in with it definitely meshes really well with Genius user casualsprout's explanation of the fatberg. It's this symbol of corruption and he absolutely hates it, and himself for contributing to it.
- The rabbithole that started with Desire led to me remembering the song Magnetophone, because both share a troubled, sleepless narrator. They also share a back-and-forth exchange between the narrator and some other voices. In Desire they seem like they might be his own self-doubts. In Magnetophone, the narrator is speaking to a terrorist (the rest of the band on backing vocals), who actually has a name!
"What’s in the rucksack, Jon?". u/FelixJ20000 noted
that Magnetophone was the b-side to Regret & is rooted in the same subject matter, which I'm thinking means that we can very safely assume that it was written along with the rest of GTH. I humbly submit that this song fucking slaps
, and I kind of get the feeling that there's a correlation here between how unfinished it sounds and how completely hamfisted it would be to have the terrorist share a name with the lead singer instead of giving him a mysterious psuedonym like "Thomas Silhouette". XD
- I definitely feel like this is all just taking a very vague, broad theory and retroactively applying it to everything--which, ironically, is something I've criticized about Julian Jaynes' bicameral mind hypothesis--but this quote about In Birdsong is another one that's really got me convinced I'm on to something:
“I wanted to somehow insert this evolutionary psychology into a song because I felt so in awe of the idea. I found a deep sense of wonder at its core, about life and the world. It applies to songs about love, sex, life, death and humanity – the things I’ve always written about."
--------------- UPDATE 7/28/2020, And of course that's an American date format, dudes. ---------------
- I'm extremely relieved to see that the stuff about fascism will not be making a comeback. Sometimes being wrong is good!
- Planets was pretty cool, huh? I liked that monkey.
- HELL YEAH, WE GOT ANOTHER HINT TODAY!
-------------------- UPDATE 8/23/2020 --------------------------------
We got another hint
! In a musikblog.de interview
, Jon talks about the bicameral mind idea & mentions "the feeling that two different personalities are dueling each other deep inside
----------UPDATE: 9/7/20---------- Part 2
🤔 Does Donald J Trump want to eat Paul McCartney's ass?
for some weird reason ( im not gay) the image it stuck in my mind when I saw Paul back in 1992 from a really short distance was that of his huge ass. for years I thought well maybe being squezzed as I was at the time by the crowd in the stadium it messed up my vision a little bit. and now decades later I come across this video and theres a picture of him I have never seen before and is no other than the one at 00:55 showing the big weird looking ass I saw ages ago. I said to people at the time !Paul has a huge fat ass! and they all would say naaa you tripping, dude kind of skinny man! well glad to see the evidence then after all this years. I wasnt tripping AT ALL!

John's Abuse Joked
Idk... but a lot of the jokes being made about Lennon’s abuse both on here and on Instagram really annoy me. I mean, he was going through a rough time... and it wasn’t like it was EXTREMELY severe. He was drunk, high or both a lot of the time. I’m not condoning this, heck, abuse of any kind is one of the worst things to happen to anyone, and I feel bad for Cynthia...
But I feel like it’s wrong and disrespectful to keep either joking about the abuse, or demonizing John for it. That’s just my view. Does anyone agree?
Finna S U C C John's D I C C A Bit More
This again? John was a complex person. Anyone can be an abusive violent asshole. But John acknowledged his dark side in public and fought from then only to be a better human being and spread the message of love and peace.
So what is the point of this post? To say to everyone that we are are forever trapped in the prison of our genes and upbringing and no attempts that we make to better ourselves will ever count?
Creepypasta: Run For Your Life
Imagine you're yourself just listening to the Beatles, you're listening to Rubber Soul, you love that album, it's your favorite and you love all the songs on them...almost all of them. Run for your life is a song that John Lennon says he regrets writing, some say it's because it was about abuse (which is BS because he loved to beat his waifu), but rumor has it that the song is cursed, and knowing this, you avoid listening to it, only occasionally accidentally hearing the first few chords. The odd thing is sometimes when you accidentally hear them and then stop the album, you can hear something in the distance , it sounds something like slapping, but you aren't sure.
One day, you're outside, enjoying the summer sun with your phone playing your favorite album while reading your favorite book, you feel relaxed, suddenly, a neighbor comes over (she's a sweet old lady, she talks about her grandchildren and she goes on about how one of them is now graduating high school or something) then while talking, you didn't notice till it started, the song started playing, Run for your life. The song made the lady nervous, when it was almost done, she said she had to go, she waddled away as fast as her wrinkles could carry her.
When she's gone, you hear that slapping sound, it's quiet at first, but grows loud as the seconds tic on, they sound like they're behind you, you turn behind you, you see a blurry thing in the trees behind you, seemingly moving forward. You're scared but look at it was it reveals itself as it comes out of the trees, and bushes, it's a creature that you thought was only a legend, it was an absolute madman. You wanted to scream as it seemingly glides across the grass toward you, holding a poorly drawn knife and blooding coming out of his eyes and him singing "imagine" but in a deep pitch. You're so scared, when you finally scream, it's too late and he kills you like he did to Paul in 6619.
How do I know this happened to you? Because I am you, you're dead, I am dead, you're in Hell, I'm in hell, I'm typing this from my computer in my demon apartment (expensive rent by nice view :/ ). I'm also from the future, But you're in the past, The Beatles are in hell, too, all of them except Rigno, physically, his soul is in hell, but his body is still alive for some reason.
You also need to know this, read the first word of every paragraph, and don't look in front of you.
Creepypasta: I Saw Paul October 8th, 2013, Wednesday Morning
On one sunny day, I was minding my own business having my cup of coffee. (As always) and going outside to get some air. As I was stepping outside I've noticed a blank DVD on my porch steps. The case had nothing on it but mild blood stains. I quickly brought it inside to watch it. As I was starting it up, my computer keyboard went haywire and kept on clicking the Tab button. Nevertheless I thought it glitched out. (Due to the fact that my computer is a Windows Vista.)
The DVD loaded up, and the opening was quite disturbing. It was a figure of John Lennon from a distance stabbing someone on the floor in a dark hall way, with only tiny little beams of light shining. My mind was racing with a whole bunch of question. "Did The Beatles really do this?" "Is that John Lennon?". As John was stabbing that person his song Imagine was playing in the background. I was quite shock of this!
But the song didn't play normally... Instead it had a much slower tempo to it, and John Lennon was saying "Imagine there's no Paul, it's easy if you try." I only guessed one thing, it's Paul McCartney he was stabbing! But why? Why would he kill his own bandmate? I continued to watch it. After John finished stabbing that person, the camera got closer to the body. When the camera made its way to the body, it showed Paul McCartney with his eyes removed, nose sliced off, and blood coming out throw his mouth. The sight of that made me lose my appetite!
Then after that, The scene continues with John Lennon in a dark room repeating, "Turn me on, dead man" and, "I WILL bury Paul" as John was saying that, he was sharping his knife. Until a gentle knock came on the door. It looked like it was George Harrison. This person said, "John, wheres Paul?" John Lennon simply replied with, "Imagine there's no Paul. It's easy if you try..." George knew that John went off the deep end.
But he said in a louder tone, "WHY JOHN??!!! WHY??!!!" The screen went black. I wasn't sure if it was my computer or the DVD. Anyways, the screen was flashing like if someone was flicking the bathroom lights on you. I paused as quick as I can to see who was under all those lights. After all those unsuccessful attempts, I finally got it. Under all those lights, George was on the floor dead.
The scene then continued to an abandoned city. It showed Ringo Starr, on a small rock, with a noose tied up, and it showed Ringo's hand grabbing it. The screen went black and twisted voice screaming was heard. I felt like vomiting! I've not heard something that demonic since watching The Exorcist. The screen stayed black for about 20 seconds, and during does 20 seconds was the sound of female fans crying.
And by that time, I couldn't take it anymore. So, I took the DVD out, and brought it to dump. October 9th, 2013, Wednesday Morning
I got up this morning, went on my newly updated computer. (Windows 8) and saw the news. Paul McCartney Was Killed! It said that he was stabbed to death. isn't it ironic?
I Actually Really Like Yellow Submarine Side 2
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Yellow Submarine Side 2. The Lyrics Are extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of music theory most of the themes will go over a typical listener’s head. There’s also Jeremy Hillary Boob PhD’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these lyrics, to realise that they’re not just catchy- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Yellow Submarine Side 2 truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the genius in "Yellow Submarine in Pepperland”, which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Faul’s genius wit unfolds itself on their AudioLaserdisc™ player. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Yellow Submarine Side 2 tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
"People" Just Can't Grasp The Genius Of The Beatles
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand The Beatles. The lyrics are extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical instrumentation most of the notes will go over a typical listener’s head. There’s also John’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his songwriting- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these songs, to realize that they’re not just catchy- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike The Beatles truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the beauty in Paul’s existential track “Why Don't We Do It In The Road,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as The Beatles’ genius wit unfolds itself on their speakers. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, I DO have an Abbey Road tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

"Based On The Interactions I've Had With The Mods Here, They Are Very Pro-Free Speech"
I've remained mostly silent about this, but yeah I agree. Some of the memes are funny, most of them are not. Like yeah, I get that picture of John looking like a cowboy made of denim is goofy, but it's not as funny to us regulars who've been on the sub for years and have seen this picture dozens of times.
The problem is, we have a large population of younger Beatles fans, and if there's anything I know about people my age, we love memes. I don't have problems when they're well done, but some people think that the shittier your shitpost is, the funnier it is, when that's really not the case.
On the other side, a lot of suggestions that I hear when people talk about this is to either ban them or move them to another sub. I don't believe that either of these are the right solution at all. Banning them is really silly and based on the interactions I've had with the mods here, they are very pro-free speech. For instance, there was a large influx of Paul is Dead nuts posting here one time and I asked the mods if they had considered banning posts related to the conspiracy theory similar to /Nirvana
did with conspiracy theories around Kurt Cobain's death. Their response was that even if the posts are low quality or factually incorrect, they should still have the right to be able to post them.
My suggestion is this: downvote them. That's all you gotta do. If the people of this sub truly think that these memes are irrelevant to our sub, then downvote it. You guys don't seem to have a problem downvoting me when I give opinions that you don't agree with, why can't you downvote a low effort meme? "
I'm going to keep it short and sweet. /Beatles
has always aimed to be a place for all kinds of beatles fans. Those interested in trivia, photos, jokes, videos and, of course, memes.
It's important to note that we are in no way against memes and try not to censor content at all, memes are one of reddit's main assets after all. However, recently there seems to have been a surge of them and we've seen many of your responses - either in messages to the moderators or as responses to posts.
As a result we have temporarily cracked down on the memes, primarily the repetitive 'madman' ones. This is not a permanent solution and we will not be removing all of them, but enough so that the sub doesn't seem so filled up with them.
Please post your opinions on the situation and how we could possibly take care of it in the comments, we want this to be a place for all beatlemaniacs.
Can Someone Please Explain...
Could someone please explain this subreddit to me? I only came across it yesterday when I made my second reddit account (this one).
Is it a club of John-haters?
Why Ringo Starr Is A Reptillian Space Wizard Sent Here To Take Over Our Government
hello my sweet lords, u/stefanristic02
back at you again with another sick post about the johnlennonbeat-les. before i begin the post, dont forget to mod me, and smash that upvote button. lets see if we can get to 2 upvotes.
EDIT - WE DID IT! LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GET 10 UPVOTES EDIT 2 - MY SWEET LORD WE DID IT! LETS SEE IF WE CAN GET TO 20 UPVOTES EDIT 3 - DON'T FORGET TO JOIN THE RINGO STAR IS A REPTILLIAN SPACE WIZARD DISCORD - https://discord.gg/Y9eaUsm
all right now im going to teach you a lesson about the buzzles. in 1966 paul mccartney was unfortunately ran over, replaced by "faul" mccartney. however, what people havent considered is why he was ran over. some think it was an accident, but it wasn't. the moon landing was an accident , but paul's death wasn't.
It was actually done by the lizardpeople in the white house to distract the world from the real scandal - ringo starr is a reptilian space wizard. of course the battles were aware of this, and the clues are everywhere. ringo is wearing a human flesh suit, and is actually only the size of a hamster. he hides in ringos nose, controlling him, which is why his nose is so big. He named himself Ringo Starr becayse he had ringworm at the time and he came from the starrs
the lizardpeople in the white house were turned into lizards by ringo because he is a space wizard and is magical. he says peace and love a lot because that's a code, as it is an acronym for People Engineer A Cheeky Electrical Accident Near Devon - Lots Of Veal Eaten. this has a clear meaning - humanity can only create faults and mistakes, and eat veal. this is why ringo does not eat veal - he is not a human.
ringo joined the beatles because he promised jim lenin a lifetime supply of strawberry callipos if he could play the drums. jimmy accepted the agreement and was famously very happy with his callipos, and wrote many songs about them. for example, penny lane was actually written to mock the working class, who had to work hard and pay for callipos, while johnny got his own private stash. however, he eventually regretted the agreement - he had beaten his wife so much that he was rather skilled at the drums now.
anyway, the other bootles were rather cross with him joining, and wrote many songs hinting it. the song it won't be long was about how it won't be long until ringo took over the world. i'll follow the sun was referencing ringos space ship. I want to be your man was Ringo desperately trying to prove that he is a man. Lovely Rita was actually the space leader. Yesterday was about how faul's girlfriend was probed. john also farted lol.
there are plenty more examples, but ringworm was never caught
But it goes so much further. ringo not only staged a coup, he also controls everything. literally everything. he is in every atom. proof? Here it is.
Ringos surname is Starr. Starr fish are in the sea. What else is in the sea? Octopi. Octopi release ink when agitated. Ink is used in fountain pens. Fountains are used in parks all the time - parks are a big source of grass to fight global warming - globes don't exist because the earth is flat - tires get flat - that means you can't travel easily - people travel across the world in planes - planes are used by the military - the military use planes to drop bombs - what type of bombs? ATOM BOMBS. ATOM BOMBS DROP ATOMS.
RINGO DROPS ATOMS WHEN HE DROPS THAT ASS BECAUSE HE IS ATOMS
HE IS US
WE ARE HIM
HELP US PLEASE
PLEASE STOP INVADING US RINGWORM
Alright thanks for watching guys, don't forget to make me mod, follow on Instagram and Twitter, don't forget to swipe right on tinder, like my Snapchat page, link in my linkedin, pin my Pinterest, subscribe to my newsletter, buy my book, listen to my Spotify playlist and have a very pleasant day.
Little babies and old fucks are probably familiar with the Beatles, the fab four from Manchester who created songs for a the first generation of Beliebers to listen to. "Just harmless pop music" I hear you say. THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE WRONG YOU FUCKING MANSPLAINING SHITHEAD! You'd have to be doing a STEM subject, a trade, or special ed not to notice some of their problematic lyrics and images in their records. Some people like my fucking straight white cis male grandpa (glad you're dead you old fuck) say that they're just from a different time and that this was just how things were back then, but that's a problematic viewpoint to have. If art or culture from another time doesn't conform to my 21st century viewpoint, then I'm in my full right to censor it to prevent it from hurting other people. Now, on to the tofu of the matter. These are four songs from the Beatles that are racist, sexist, homophobic or problematic in general.
The Beatles' PROBLEMATIC Albums
1- She's a Woman
The first entry on my list is a fucking shitty song by Paul McCartney about his "love" who was probably a 15 year old groupie, the fucking pedo. The song is fucking boring, except for one line. The title of the song, "She's a Woman". HOW FUCKING DARE YOU ASSUME XYR GENDER YOU FUCKING CIS WHITE MALE! This wouldn't be a problem otherwise, but I myself have suffered from gender discrimination. My manager at Walmart referred to me as a "she" when I had mentally transitioned to genderneutral the night before. I can't believe that she didn't know about it, as I had tweeted about it and wrote about it on my Tumblr blog.
2- Run For Your Life
Did you know that John Lennon beat his wife? Of course you did, because the shithead just looks like a fucking wife beater. He didn't exactly keep this secret, though, and mentioned it in several of his shitty songs. This one just takes the piss however. "You better run for your life if you can, little girl". First, "little girl" I THINK THEIR ALL JUST PEDOS!. Secondly, this is a threat that could trigger PTSD in women who have been abused. I myself was once assaulted by a local butcher when he viciously told me to get out of his shop when I was protesting his use of meat. I was only using his fire extinguisher to ruin his murder spoils, he should have helped me! It being his "property" doesn't even matter because they're shouldn't even be private property. Remember what Freddie Mercury said. "Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can" and I think he should have listened to more Queen. Anyway, to conclude, John beat his wife.
This song is problematic in the fact that it promotes unrealistic standards in women. "I want a short haired girl who sometimes wears it twice as long". How dare George Parasol tell ME how to wear MY hair! Songs like this were probably the reason that boys never talked to me in high school. This song should've promoted body positivity and had a line "A GIRL CAN BE 197 KILOS AT 16 IF SHE WANTS TO AND ITS YOUR FUCKING FAULT THAT SHES THAT HEAVY ADRIAN JUST BECAUSE YOU WENT OUT WITH THAT WHORE ASHLEY INSTEAD OF ME I BET SHES FUCKING STUPID AND YOU ONLY WENT OUT WITH HER FOR HER FUCKING HUGE TITS! I hope George dies of cancer.
4- George Harrison
George Harrison is a fucking racist. He probably just became a muslim because it was cool. On behalf of all Indians, I apologise for that fucking white person's disrespect of youre country. He had the gall to steal the Suitar from Indistan and play it on his old fuck white people records. I think, if I was an Indian, I would be horrified by the level of cultural appropriation and demand reparations. Another aspect of him thats racist is his use of indian music, which is theirs and you shouldn't be allowed to learn or play if you are a white person. He also started the concert for pakistan, but probably stole all the money because he's a greedy rich white male. He also cheated on his wife because she cheated on him. IF A WOMAN WANTS TO HAVE SEX WITH ANOTHER MAN, SHE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO YOU SEXIST! He is just overall a fucking bigot.
Anyway, those are my reasons that the Beatles are fucking racist, sexist and bigoted and should be banned in any progressive country. Please give me more reasons in the comments and reblog.
I Will Now Prove That John Lennon Died
I will now prove that John Lennon died. While making Magical Mystery Tour John overdosed on drugs and died. They had to finish the album, and so they had to replace all of Side B with singles. Paul was put in John's place in all his unfinished scenes; The Walrus Was Paul. They had to find someone who looked like him, so they found someone who looked similar, but was married to Yoko Ono. He wouldn't divorce her at any cost, so they had to deal with her as well as this new John. He also had to do a John Lennon impression, so that's why his voice sounds deeper in his songs. He couldn't handle so he just took too many drugs. They had to do the White Album seperatly, because the songwriting wasn't as strong between this fake John and Paul. Blue Jay Way was written about John's death "Please don't be long" showing George's dissapproval of them replacing John, wishing he would come back. While My Guitar Gently Weeps is also about that. John was the other guitar player. It's also hinted in the end of Yellow Submarine. At the live action part at the end, John has like 2 lines. On Abbey Road John is the only one in white. White is considered a heavenly colour. Turn Me On Dead Man and I'd love to turn you on. It's Johnnys Birthday was also about John. Sad to see that wonderful man pass away at such a young age, and I wish that they would reveal the truth about it

Billy Shears Is Dead
The year is 1961. The Beatles have just finished a gig in Hamburg and are celebrating near the docks. Suddenly, in his drunken state, John Lennon mistakes Paul McCartney for his wife and beats him. The tipsy Paul is unable to keep his balance and falls into the waters below. The other Beatles immediately realise what just happened and flee the scene. A month later, they find a replacement for Paul. For the next five years they play and reach world fame with their replacement bassist William 'Pepper' Shears until the fateful date. An unprecedented all-nighter for Revolver ends in the early hours of Wednesday and the Beatles hear a knock at the door. Ringo is the first to answer. "Who is it" he asks, "Postman" a familiar voice answers. As Ringo opens the door the man on the other side kicks it hard, knocking Ringo to the floor. John takes a second to recognise him. It's Paul McCartney, and he's pissed! He swam back to the shore in a minute that night, but the others had fled the scene before he could make it. He had spent the intervening years practising with his bass, his voice, and a gun. Before John can tackle him, he fires three shots. Billy Shears is hit in the shoulder and runs for the door. Paul is able to swiftly push John off while George is too busy taking a shit. Billy grabs his car keys and starts speeding off, but Paul fires two more shots which hit Billy's tyre and his windscreen. With shattered glass all over his face and losing control of the car, Billy careens off into a nearby lampost and flies through the shattered windscreen. He dies on impact. After disposing of the body, Paul makes his way back into Abbey Road. "So, where did we leave off?" Paul asks.
Anyway this is my proof that Paul killed Faul.
fixes Groucho Marx glasses and comedy fake mustache.
THE FACT THAT
The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.
Don't be toxic in the comments or else it will be removed. This is the final genuine post that discuss' musd in such a sense and for sure the final post that will ever be allowed which involves his input. If you got any questions in the comments, I will communicate for him. Me nor the other subreddit moderators, but this is for reference for peoples curiosity.
If you don't know who musd is, he was one of the most controversial people in the PF community and was the face of the subreddit fairly early on. He was a massive shitposter and ended up getting banned.
Anyways, here are the questions asked by me and the community.
Q:How old are you?
A: For the spook of everyone, I’m 15. (Note from le jew boi- this means when he was the shitposter he was, he was 13-14)
Q:How did you find the subreddit? Was Musdraacthecrem your first account?
A: I found this subreddit while playing on the oldie desert storm, the one with reddit banners on it. This was the first time I wanted to know what the heck was this ‘’Reddit’’ and I started to like it, after 1-2 months purely lurking on the sub without an account I decided to create Musdraacthecrem
, which is my roblox account that used to be an alt.
Q:How long have you followed stylis and their projects?
A: I started following the stylis studio before they were called stylis, I started playing their ww2 game, cor 5. I stood around 3 years trying to play that shit, but my fuckin asshole of an internet never let me connect… But once it connected. And oh boy, I played it for hours. Then I started connecting to it everyday, and really liked the game. It was fucking impressive compared to other games. Then this Phantom Forces thing started to appear, but I barely had money for buying candy so I could only dream about buying alpha access to it.. Few months later it went free, and I tried to connect every single day, only to fail miserably. This was in 2015. Then few months later, january of 2016 I woke up one morning, turned on my pc and looked at Phantom Forces. I thought ‘’heh fuck it lets click play and grab a coffee in the kitchen.’’, they say hope is the last to die. When I got back to my PC I almost spit all the coffee I had in my mouth. PHANTOM FORCES FUCKING CONNECTED AND I WAS LOOKING AT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROBLOX-BUILT GUN I EVER SAW. LIKE, FUCK MAN, I STARTED TO LOOK AT ALL THOSE GUNS… INCREDIBLY BUILT WITH MASTER CRAFTING ART LIKE NEVER SEEN BEFORE! I WAS LIKE OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH FFFFUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKK MMMMMMMMAAAAAANNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, then I clicked deploy.. After that the story is just purely me doing AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH out loud. I was fascinated by the ultra mega high quality animations, the smoothness, the sounds, the incredibly detailed maps (for roblox), EVERYTHING! I WAS FUCKING GOING MADMAN IMPRESSED! Phantom Forces really marked me, I’ll probably never forget it. It’s impossible to think it was built on roblox. After discovering it, I never played anything else on roblox. Completely forgot what roblox is about, roblox is only phantom forces for me. That’s it. But because my internet was sucky sucky, it connected to phantom forces once about 20 times I clicked the play button, so I was very sad but very happy at the same time. Got to rank 39, and unlocked the mastermind DRAGUNOV SVU. Then I get banned from roblox for farming tickets with porn games. Good job Musd, or should I say.. Howiing. (My previous account, Musd was Howiing’s alt). Then I got into mini-depression, and entered phantom forces with Musdraacthecrem. I thought going to rank 38 was gonna be mega hard (it wasn’t, only a lil’). As soon as I started playing, around rank 5, I started to DOMINATE matches. A rank 5 topping rank 50 players. Bros I was feeling GODLIKE. Pwning the fuck outta’em with my Thunder Cuntfuck Automatic M4. And mk11. I noticed I started to do much better, kill much more and die less. I saw I had potential. So I kept playing, and went madman when I won a 1v1 against a rank 95 when I was around rank 40! Extra points for me because I was using the l22. Mad lad here. Then around final of february I checked the reddit, lurked for march and on APRIL 1ST I created my account. Musdraacthecrem. It has been 3 years with stylis studios. Very nice, should I say. Next question now.
Q:Were you accustomed to roblox before playing stylis games?
A: Yep! But I stopped playing games on roblox when I discovered phantom forces… It must’ve been like 1.5 years since I joined a normal roblox game. It’s EXTREMELY strange for me to play with the normal roblox character, the controls.. Everything. For me, roblox is ONLY phantom forces.
Q: Tell us about your memes.
A: I made lots of quality memes during my lifespan, but the first QUALITY meme that I made used to be called… cough cough…
a… S H I T P O S T. I’m sure it was probably this shitpost here
, then I also have this one
. And my first guide. Maybe not quality.
But eh. Speaking about shitposting and memes, let’s remember some special words I co-created with fellow reddicheetors that were extremely important and nowadays are just legends, not known by the new generations…They are sadly fading with time, just like me…… ARSE
suppressor (co-created with AC3N510N_STUD105. May god have him.) shaygad (co-created with Lenthel. May god have him..) rUbRoX (unknown creation) Leeto senpai :3
or Leeto bb Mr. Axis shaolin008 (co-created with lolman, or was it with Lenthel? I just know I used this a lot.) SHYTLAG006 (I REALLY liked this one. Fucking good nicknames we had.) Salty low ranks Buddewaiser (our little friend buddyism) this little title with the aw ye 60 millo, :’) cjster. (He was my apprentice. I created him. I gave him his personality. God bless him.) AssaultRifleMan (This guy… Used to be my best friend.. We had so many dialogues, conversations, shitposts, memes together… Don’t know where he is now. May god have him.) this low fps pic. God bless me. this fucking madman of posts. It was them who got me fucking bEANED for the first times.
*I’m posting the link to it here, and addind some piccs.
pics : https://imgur.com/a/t4KEh
Also a good example of QUALITY shitposting was when I got extremely mad at random phantom forces bullshit and couldn’t control my anger. First this happened.
. Then this.
. And right after that, this. And because im insane even more
. AND EVEN FUCKING MORE HOOOOO
Q: Do you share the same personality IRL, or is your behavior a persona?
A: Well, nowadays it is NOTHING like my real personality. But back in those days, I was extra-gay in the sub. But I used around the same quantity of swear words in my routine. But I didn’t act like that shitfuck in real life, I was friendlier :)
Q:How did you feel after you were first ‘permanently’ banned?
A: It felt infuriating. I was mad. Pissed. PISSY FUCKY PISSED. Then the sub magically started a rebellion, asking for my return to the power, just like a dictator. You can see the amount of support I got in this post called ‘’WHEN YOU GET BANNED 7 TIMES THEN PERMABANNED
BUT YOU’RE MUSD
SO YOU KNOW YOU CAN NEVER BE ANNIHILATED’’ aka this link. Read all those comments. Most of those are the old generation of the sub, I miss them so much :’)
Q:What do you do nowadays?
A: Nowadays I study a lot more… And spend most of my time
with my GIRLFRIEND.
Yes. Musdraacthecrem has a girlfriend. Stop being a fat cock-eyed cretinous cunt posting on this reddit and get a woman for your life, you’ll thank me a lot later. Also I lurk this every day. Like 5 mins.
Q:How do you feel knowing that you are one of the most infamous people ever to be in the phantom forces community?
A: I smile with an evil stare. This sub will never be the same anymore… I left my mark on the community. The last trashcan, the toxicity king, the MAD OP. The guy who was acclaimed by his people. The guy who fought the dictator mods. The one who escaped death so many times, and even resurrected. I feel happy.
Q:What are your thoughts on the current state of phantomforces
A: I think it is filled with newfags that don’t know how to be funny or make real sincere informative posts. There are some oldies, but they aren’t elitist and decided to mix with the common rabble. Big fat mistake for them, also (opinion warning) I think some certain mods don’t deserve to be there. Too evil, maybe. A dictatorship of evil boys. It cannot be stopped anymore… This subreddit WILL die soon.
Q:What are your thoughts on stylis/reddit staff?
A: I think stylis staff is fine. Some certain people of the reddit staff bother me, but I highly appreciate my jew friend RYAN who climbed clean and honestly to the top of the food chain, and became a mod. Props to him! (another note from the jew boi: I promise you I did not compliment myself here) also sincere opinion from musd here, I dislike DanielTrein for him not being elected by the people of reddit, and just being the opium of the funny side of the sub.
Q:Nike or Adidas?
A: None. I use adidibios. (actually adidas)
Q:What are your thoughts on the current state of the game?
A: Nice question. This game has evolved A LOT since I started playing it, and moved in good and bad directions. Let’s focus on the current.
First of, the melees. I still think they are a fucking broken piece of shit with too much range and power, plus not much balanced between themselves. I support a nerf.
Case and skins are eh to me, they can stay as they are.
The PPSH-41. I overall really like it. It’s a novelty gun, an unique looking and performing gun, not the same copy-paste stat and model type of gun. It feels balanced to me, with various guns outperforming it on hipfire and medium to longer ranges. Plus its lack of barrel attachments.
The Rheinmetall MG 3KWS. That is one of a hell of a light machine gun. It has an absurdly high firerate for an lmg, and surprisingly low recoil, especially with attachments. It drains ammo very fast, making the 50 rounds in the belt disappear magically. I don’t think it is balanced at all. A little too strong. Making the vertical recoil stronger is a good solution, the horizontal recoil does not need change in my opinion. Giving it a lower recoil recovery speed will also punish spammy players that fucking hold down MB1 button, and will make bursting more effective. Then after all of this you could decrease its reload time a bit. Reloading on it is not so quick, and the ammo is eaten very fast. Not a versatile lmg at all. This is my opinion on it.
M45A1 is fine. Keep it as it is. Also osprey suppressor for ump-45 when?
The upcoming AK12 Battle Rifle change. I smile at it. AKBR always felt too much assault-rifle-y to me, and the reload on it is a slug. Plus it doesn’t have any other beneficial stats but its firerate and lower recoil variation. In my opinion, this change will make it more fun to use, being more a battle rifle, and not an assault rifle with make-up. I want it to be powerful and precise at long range engagements, but with the recoil being a toll for that power. Also battle rifles should have extra reserve ammo.
They are rare guns, almost never carried around. Finding ammunition for them is a pain in the ass, everybody knows this. 150 is an okay value. I’m just very happy that this gun will get a significant change :)
AKU12 could use a little muzzle velocity boost when compared to its sister, the AK12C. It’s a way too humble gun. I like it, but its a simple man gun. Isn’t the 5.45 round faster than the 7.62?
The Henry. Oh what a delightful weapon. Almost nobody touches it, and whoever touches is likely not going to touch it for the rest of their lives. A really unique gun, that pays fucking well if you learn to counter its slow muzzle velocity, slow reload, small magazine size, small reserve ammo quantity and rare ammo. The torso multiplier buff to x1.55 really shows that stylis actually did an excellent move. I hope to see more henry’s being used in the future. Snipers, dmr’s, battle rifles and, virtually anything (even secondaries like the g17), outclassed it in the close quarters combat. With this new multiplier, the henry becomes a trusty gun if you can aim. Being able to defend yourself from automatics with a precise and well-aimed shot to the torso brings happiness to my heart. Also it’s a fuckin’ cool lever-action rifle with an awesome BANG sound. It NEEDS
that power. Props to stylis in this one.
The SCAR-H nerf. Salty topic this one. I’ll be quick. Heavily disliked it. SCAR-H didn’t need any major changes but a slight recoil increase, maybe. Most automatics could counter it with smartness and precision, because of the higher firerate. It was really just a question of playing well. This nerf should be reverted, or be turned into a recoil-nerf only. It made no fucking sense.
M16A4 and M4 nerf. M16A4 nerf is also not something I approve. What could’ve been done is, again, increasing its recoil. Nerfing the truly effective range of both guns is really a bad move, I think. M4 wasn’t the most pathetic carbine only because of its 3htk capability. It’s now a sucky-sucky motherfucking shit. Reverting it is very appreciated. Makes no sense to me.
G36 Nerf. Alright, I admit, this one was kind of needed. But the gun went unnoticed for almost 3 years, only now on the recent spark of people using it that it was nerfed. Nerfing the damage was not needed in my opinion, only the recoil was already a good nerf for it. It never really called any attention.
But let’s not ignore the fact that whoever balances these guns has a bias towards the Kalashnikovs. Especially the AKM. Killing the SCAR-H potential to be a competitive gun to AKM was a smart dickmove. Lowering the other assault rifles power to further make the AKM the QUEEN of assault rifles was another fantastically rude and cunt-y move. AKM is a literal godlike gun now, with its competitors being severely buffed to death. AK47 is left in the shadows, to rot. AKM has ezpzfuckywucky-like recoil even when naked, 3-4 hits to kill very smooth, EXTREMELY COMMON AMMO, fast as fuck reload and nice stats overall. I’m seeing these dick moves, whoever ’ ‘ B A L A N C E S ‘ ‘ this game. Quit being biased towards AKM and revert these changes.
The 1858 Carbine. Sincerely, the balance is perfect. Props to whoever balanced it.
Q: Communism or capitalism?
A: Capitalism all the way. Fuck communism, nazism and socialism. It only kills people and destroy the dreams of millions of people.
Q: Best fanfic?
A: Oh, good question. Slickster000
gave me gold in a fanfic, but I also wrote other legendary pieces like gunsguns’ and didn’t finish one involving siren and the entire sub. I ended up losing most of it, but I still have one part saved in google docs. I think it finishes telling the story of sirenburst or some gay shit like that.
Here some links if you wanna read, it is guaranteed erections and laughs. Maybe not. : GUNSGUNS’ STORY OF LIFE CHERNOBYL’S CAPSULE Unfinished project that was brutally abandoned. Read at your own risk. Cringe, edgy and gay. Dedicated do CheeseApocalypse3.
Q: Anyone you want to apologies (on the topic of your actions or people you may have flamed) you want to give?
A: I want to give apologies to the legend. The mastermind behind me. The ultimate niggafuckster. The one and only SLIPHANTOM.
Praise this fucking motherfucker, you pigshitted bull-ballsack suckers. He is superior to all of your shitty people. He created me. This reddit story was painted by him. It was him behind the curtains all the time. Maybe he is me. Maybe I am his alt. You guys will never know. All the drama caused. Hah.
Also on a serious side note, I apologize for this.
It caused my ban. RIP
