The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the best cover in the history of music:

Edit: Apparently most people don't realize that the above statement, followed by a death metal cover of Stayin Alive, would represent a certain amount of sarcasm. I am here to tell you that it does. This song is not a great song, it is simply hilarious because it's a fucking death metal cover of the Bee Gees.

    basically, authenticity deals with a mineness, it deals with the possibilities which are open to us. (Thus, since death is always a possibility to us, we must grasp that our death is our ultimate possibility and relate to it in a way that is fitting for our being.) Consider inauthenticity as the teenager who wants to fit in: "if everybody else was jumping off a bridge, would you do it?" Inauthenticity deals with the They, the phenomenon of "everyone" in the sense of "but everyone else is doing it!" The assumption is that only when we are ourselves are we free.

    Thus, it is a possibility to dress up, because it is our possibility to not be ourselves. (Although that would be inauthentic.) If I am still authentically myself when I have sex in a costume, great! But if I am willfully rejecting my being, assuming that of another -- another who is essentially a reified form of the they -- then I am being completely inauthentic, I am rejecting my mineness, and thus I am imprisoned in my not-being-myself. and closed off from freedom.

    I'm sorry, I'm trying to get better at summing up ontological existentialism in brief synopses, but I still kind of suck at it.

    So

    Since you can only ever be you, pretending to be something other than you is harmful in that your hurting/hindering your own possibilities by limiting or rejecting the only existence you have that has options, your you-ness?

    I can appreciate that, however ridiculous I made it sound.

    Also Preach, I think that cover is awesome in a hilarious way. Not in an honest "Do you think it may be better than the original?" way.
