    That's right, it was mostly a situation where judges would not uphold the claims and generally the musicians came out sounding pretty reasonable.

    By contrast if I look at folk rock act Pentangle, which I am a fan of, they are of course much "nicer" sounding than Ozzy, but, I'm not sure, probably at least half of their stuff is about death, murder, sexual betrayal, and all kinds of grim stuff. And so obviously, gloomy suicidal sounds go back way before that. It was more like a particular group of people complaining about music they didn't like.

    Seems to me the suicidal urge comes from some other prevailing direction, and, without something to listen to, they might do it sooner, who knows?

    I sold a shotgun to a guy one time who used it in probably less than thirty minutes. It would have been sooner, except I didn't have shells for it. I really thought something was a bit off about him, but generally speaking this is the last crime anyone would suspect, and I couldn't tell what he was doing. The authorities spoke to me about it because there was not enough facial tissue for a positive i. d.

    It happens, but, I would have a hard time pinning that on a song.

    LIGHT OR DARK? A Marina Abramovic & Ulay- performance.

    At least an answer to the koan "What's the Sound of One Hand Clapping".

    Marina Abramovic? Dark.

    "The Future" by Leonard Cohen was strange/chilling when I first heard it in 1992.
    But things certainly are "sliding," as far as consensual reality, and it is reaching massive proportions. We have so many more "realties" now since the internet.
    I think it was in Richard Bach's "Illusions" where the character asked just how many realties there are, and the answer was "How many people are alive on the Earth right now?"
    The lack of consensus, though, in things previously considered basics, is becoming absurdly overwhelming.

    I consider this one dark, just because things never seem to change, although it's rather humorous too. <sigh>
