    Can any one explain to me why the generation that didn't have to fight a major war and has seen unprecedented materialistic 'advance' are so obsesses with skulls, death and violence. Never the soft caress of a switch has even touched their precious hides and yet, their t-shirts call out the grim reaper, their music groups play the soundtrack of hell, you get the picture? Anyone enlighten me.

    "Perhaps one of the greatest tales of all, is that of the majestic axe bestowed by thy own Godly hands. As a child, I had never shown great interest in the pastimes of the other children of the womb. Nine years into this mortal world, I began to show a great liking for the beautiful shriekings brought forth by thy axe. Born into a poor family, funding for tutorial was a troublesome but worthy quest, as I worked greatly to refine my skill as thy fathers before thee. One fine day, I refused tutorial, preferring quest by thine own eyes, with mentors' assistance. Upon the increase of thy slaughtering skill of thy axe, I became known throughout the lands, seeking to conquer a new realm."

    Therein lies the fantasy of mortal combat waged in puerile daydreams.

    "The generation"? Which generation's that? What's a "major war"?

    Both question and premise look flawed to me, tbh. Not really sure what you're getting at.

    Seem to remember my parents many years ago telling me that I was listening to the devil's music - Sabbath, Zepp & Purple etc so nothings changed very much!!

    I've just been reading some Lovecraft and it would suggest that we're not the first generation to be obsessed with death and the unknown.

    I have a friend from Aleppo that may dispute your 'major war' theory Phillip. Unless you mean it has to have us in it and a Teutonic threat?

    If the genius that wrote this is right then it's because rock music is 'in league with the devil' ...haha.

    Cricket is also 'in league with the devil'.

    You know that abbreviation LBW? It stands for Lucifer, Beelzebub and Wendigo demons all. That's why they won't allow Suzi Quatro to play for Yorkshire Cricket Club on account of that 'Devil Gate Drive' song.
