This happened on the 18th August in SA and is truly terrible.

But what makes me angry is that the authorities are now blaming the music this kid listened to (Slipknot) instead of looking at the real issues. Question

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

Violent movies and nihilistic music are not going to make a good kid go bad.  However, I do think, under the right circumstances, I do think that a kid who is borderline mentally ill or depressed can be pushed over the edge by listening to too much stuff that glorifies violence or suicide as a valid way of dealing with life.

I don't think it was the kid's taste in music, I think it was that he's F*ckin' Nuts.

When will people get brains!!???!!  Hatred
Ok, so by their twisted logic - if I listen to Ronnie James Dio, then that must surely influence me to run round with a sword and fight dragons!

Or if I listen to Running Wild, I will have no control over my own mind - I would take to the high seas and steal treasure!

You mean you don't already?   TeddyR  Doesn't Dio's music make us all do that? I thought that was normal.

Hair metal makes me want to watch strippers.  Thats about all music has as an influence on me.  I recall a newscaster after the Columbine shootings saying something like, "The kids involved were known fans of Marilyn Manson".  Can we put it to rest that media violence and all this sh*t isn't to blame for one nut's actions?  I'm sure there were killers in the past who listened to Kenny Rogers.  Did we blame him? 

Oh, and did I mention we need more violence and  boobs on tv.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
