Yoof Sonz Of Mecha. Metal Postcard Influences - August The creation of Metal Postcard records took many years and many influences before it became reality as a label. Influences come in many forms. Indie record labels such as Fast, Small Wonder, Factory, Postcard and early Creation records, as well as Peel's wide and varied playlists over the years and not forgetting the influence of writers such as Burroughs, Ginsberg, Tom Wolfe, Huxley and JG Ballard who were and still are a major influence on the type of music and releases I try to put out on the label.
In the final analysis though, it's songs heard in many places that are the core influence for the label. Of course this show could quite easily have been 3 hours, 6 hours, 12 and even 24 hours worth of songs. Here's the first hour.. As time goes by The Clash feature more and more on Metal Postcard's personal playlist, in this hour we feature Complete Control, heard again over the radio, whilst driving through Brooklyn's Red Hook area a few years back and in the heat of the summer with the fire hydrants firing water in all directions and the window down a song never sounded so perfect.
No Metal Postcard day would be without Siouxsie in this show we return to the Scream yet again to hear the glorious Mirage. Another band that's had a great influence on the label are Perth's Triffids the only band that has made me feel that it really didn't matter that I was only 3 when the Velvet Underground ruled their very small roost.
And talking about love affairs.. Leadbelly's "In The Pines" has enthralled for many years, in this show the finest version? Over the course of the cartoon series , which makes up its own particular canon, Evil concentrates more on destroying the universe rather than obtaining Jim's suit even though one episode began with Evil stealing Jim's suit in an attempt to destroy him.
He has been continuously thwarted by such forces as origami, the Department of Apocalyptic Affairs, and even the cartoon's budget running out. He is frequently assisted, but more often annoyed, by his aide Henchrat. In spite of his status as a purely evil villain, Evil occasionally shows the behavior of a real cat, such as licking himself or playing with a ball of yarn when he's bored.
In Earthworm Jim , he'll actually stop to groom himself a bit in between shots of his huge fireball gun. As befitting of his status as a ruler of a hellish world, Evil is affiliated with fire. This type of villain is the last step from any imaginable bound. One that is beyond evil and wicked. They are truly irredeemable, as Pure Evils are that type of wrongdoer that anyone cannot reason with.
More than often, only by destroying them that they can be truly stopped. Many of these evildoers fits in category called Masters of Horrors due to they are free from compassion, love and any shred of humanity. In fact, some fictions that featured both a Pure Evil and a Masters of Horrors often shows that Masters of Horrors usually pose greater threat than standard Pure Evils that when comparing his deep they crossed MEH, Masters of Horrors usually beats Pure Evils in terms of how deep they crossed.
But regardless, Pure Evils are irredeemable. Professor Pericles , Darkroom. As controversial as it seemed, the true test only begins once the characters in question regained their past identity as villains: Only true Pure Evils who are immediately return to the dark path on a whim , whereas those who proved otherwise became plagued by remorse over their evil deeds and more than eager to atone themselves in some cases, goes so far renouncing their villain identity which they deemed only bring bad memories about their past self.
Some of these characters may started as either good guys, heroes, or minor characters who then turned to the dark side and ultimately went to the path that they can never return. A pure evil villain must have a clearly defined personality and character. Simple one-dimensional characters like a destroyer with no clearly defined personality such as the Ten-Tails cannot be considered Pure Evil.
A Pure Evil villain must go above and beyond the general heinous standards and the in-story heinous standards. In addition, for Pure Evil villains who are a part of a corrupt system they must also go beyond the system standard as well. A Pure Evil villain must meet these standards to qualify:. At this point, going against the heroes and committing crimes such as theft or murder is basic villainy but with this standard the villain must go above simple basic acts to something uniquely vile.
At this point, comparisons to villains across other works are important when deciding the villain passes the General Standard. Here, this separates villains and characters within the story's work from those that are Pure Evil. And, only the villain who is worst than the serial killers can possibly qualify as Pure Evil.
As such, if the said villain commit the same crimes of their predecessor, they cannot qualify as one. Generally, given they are part of a specific system with certain morals, they don't commit actions that are beyond the basic heinous standard and meet the norm.
A good example of this is Amon Goeth - as he had one his workers in the concentration camp killed for giving him advice despite the fact that she was needed for construction and later following said advice-an action that made even other Nazis question his authority. PEs must cross the Moral Event Horizon, usually more than once as it emphasizes on how heinous they are. Although rare exceptions of those that have crossed it only once can count if said action is heinous and atrocious enough by the standards of the story, and they meet all criteria.
Steele is a good example of this as he was willing to let all the children of a whole village die from illness if he didn't let Balto deliver their medicine just to beat him in a competition. This goes over the what the character is capable of by themselves. This means what evil acts a character is capable of committing on their own with the resources they have. Resources can mean the amount of time they appear in the story, character's role, access to resources in their setting, for example.
With a character's individual capability, it is also possible for a Serial Killer and a Dictator to apply as Pure Evil despite having access to different types of resources that has varying scope. This means how bad a certain type of villain can be under a certain setting.
Remember, that if a certain villain is worse than another, then only the worst can qualify. Pure Evil villain has to be as bad as they can be with the resources they have.
The Pure Evil Villain must have a clear moral agency. They must know what is right and wrong but choose to do what is wrong and stay evil.

Bad But Beautiful No. The sleeve has a sticker with a previous owner's name on the reverse, but is in otherwise excellent condition; the vinyl looks barely played!
