What's The Future Hold? Ask A Metalhead. | Peter Buckland | TEDxPSU

Heavy metal musicians aren't just harbingers of doom. They are also voices of social consciousness. In this talk, Peter Buckland provides over 40 years of songs on the threats from nuclear war, globalization, the invasion of Iraq, demagogue politicians, and human-caused climate change. Peter Buckland leads a couple of lives. One life takes him into his work as the Academic Programs Fellow at Penn State’s Sustainability Institute and into service as a municipal official with a call to environmental justice and equality. Another life has been steeped in studying, teaching, composing, and performing music since childhood. Sometimes these lives merge in curious ways. He’s written on what can we learn about environmental ethics and environmental degradation from thrash metal songs and how musicians created the sonic form of late Cold War paranoia and environmental degradation. He lives in State College, Pennsylvania with his partner Meg and his son Sacha. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

When Ignorant People Experience Metal

Soooooo.... We're back? After 5 months? With a shitty video, of course. This is what happens when you're out of musical ideas for stupid covers, or you're working on a solo album (Kid winks). Or working on another acoustic album (SP winks). ;) ;) ;) Stupid gym douche - SP Awesome metalhead kid - Kid Our fb page: https://www.facebook.com/MetalFreakpage/ Our band page: https://www.facebook.com/Crusifire/ Our shitty twitter accounts: https://twitter.com/SP_Pancobra https://twitter.com/KidiusShredius

Why Do People Like Death Metal?

In this video, I give my take on why people might like death metal, despite its negative reputation in pop culture. NOTE: I realize that I’ve used death metal, melodic death metal, and technical death metal interchangeably in my examples. For what it’s worth, I have made sure to only discuss elements which are relevant to pure death metal. They have enough similarities that pop culture typically won’t bother to differentiate them anyways. I understand that it’s still technically incorrect to do this, and I sincerely apologize to those who are upset by it.

How the Universe Works - Blow your Mind of the Universe - Space Discovery Documentary

The formation and evolution of the Solar System began 4.6 billion years ago with the gravitational collapse of a small part of a giant molecular cloud. Most of the collapsing mass collected in the center, forming the Sun, while the rest flattened into a protoplanetary disk out of which the planets, moons, asteroids, and other small Solar System bodies formed. This model, known as the nebular hypothesis was first developed in the 18th century by Emanuel Swedenborg, Immanuel Kant, and Pierre-Simon Laplace. Its subsequent development has interwoven a variety of scientific disciplines including astronomy, physics, geology, and planetary science. Since the dawn of the space age in the 1950s and the discovery of extrasolar planets in the 1990s, the model has been both challenged and refined to account for new observations. The Solar System has evolved considerably since its initial formation. Many moons have formed from circling discs of gas and dust around their parent planets, while other moons are thought to have formed independently and later been captured by their planets. Still others, such as Earth's Moon, may be the result of giant collisions. Collisions between bodies have occurred continually up to the present day and have been central to the evolution of the Solar System. The positions of the planets might have shifted due to gravitational interactions. This planetary migration is now thought to have been responsible for much of the Solar System's early evolution. In roughly 5 billion years, the Sun will cool and expand outward to many times its current diameter (becoming a red giant), before casting off its outer layers as a planetary nebula and leaving behind a stellar remnant known as a white dwarf. In the far distant future, the gravity of passing stars will gradually reduce the Sun's retinue of planets. Some planets will be destroyed, others ejected into interstellar space. Ultimately, over the course of tens of billions of years, it is likely that the Sun will be left with none of the original bodies in orbit around it # Space #UniverseDocumentary #Universe
