"Who Killed My Imaginary Sea Monkeys?"
"Drunken Orgy In Hell 2 (2004)" =
Tais kikos marinhos são Crustáceos da Classe Branchiopoda, mais especificamente, da espécie Artemia salina. Esses atualmente representam um perigo ecológico uma vez que, depois de terem sido comercializados por todo o mundo, o descarte indevido desses crustáceos proporcionou uma invasão dessa espécie em novos ambientes em prejuízo das espécies nativas.
Esse clip da Cynthia Witthoft estava aqui no Tube, mas a pessoa que havia colocado parece que foi expulsa, ainda bem que eu tinha feito download dele pq eu sempre tinha nostalgia lembrando do meu trauma de infância por nunca ter visto nenhum "Kiko Marinho" mesmo tendo tido umas três vezes aquele "Kit".
Eu pensava que esses seres conhecidos como Sea Monkeys ("Kikos Marinhos" em português ou "Monos De Mar" em espanhol) eram até lenda urbana. Afinal, onde já se viu uma história dessas de que a gente pode comprar um kit com um pozinho em envelopes (são ovos) que ao entrar em contato com a água fazem nascer uns bichinhos minúsculos que crescem e que em princípio até se reproduzem: os meus nunca nasceram!
Saber que existem uns seres assim, que podem ser criados em casa, faz despertar a imaginação de qualquer criança e de muita gente já crescida. Sem falar que o nome "Sea Monkeys" é muito sugestivo e até nos faz pensar em animais inteligentes, que fazem todo tipo de peripécias.
Depois de procurar na net vi que os Sea Monkeys são na realidade uns crustáceos, mini camarões que são criados em aquários e que podem viver aproximadamente dois anos. Parece que no Brasil foi febre nos anos 70.
Mas ainda neste tema, existem também as ecosferas (Ecosphere Closed Ecosystem), que são uma espécie aquários fechados geralmente esféricos, ecossistemas, em que vivem mini camarões e algas. Muito bonitos mas custam os olhos da cara! E os aquários pequenos pelo que vejo têm garantia de apenas 6 meses e vêm com 3 ou 4 camarões (como são econômicos!). Será que a Cynthia Witthoft tinha alguma criação de Kikos Marinhos ou foi só um nome de música como qualquer outro?!?!?
"The Kuru Disease"
"Last Recordings Before My Suicide - 2008" -
Kuru, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), is a very rare and incurable degenerative neurological disorder (brain disease) that is ultimately fatal. Among the types of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy found in humans, it is the most common.
Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy diseases are caused by prions. The diseases are thus sometimes called prion diseases. Other prion diseases include Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker syndrome (GSS), fatal familial insomnia (FFI) and kuru in humans, as well as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) commonly known as mad cow disease, chronic wasting disease (CWD) in elk and deer, and scrapie in sheep.
The prion that is believed to cause Creutzfeldt-Jakob exhibits at least two stable conformations. One, the native state, is water-soluble and present in healthy cells. As of 2007, its biological function is presumably in transmembrane transport or signaling. The other conformational state is very poorly water-soluble and readily forms protein aggregates.
People can also acquire CJD genetically through a mutation of the gene that codes for the prion protein(PRNP). This only occurs in 5-10% of all CJD cases.
The CJD prion is dangerous because it promotes refolding of native proteins into the diseased state. The number of misfolded protein molecules will increase exponentially, and the process leads to a large quantity of insoluble prions in affected cells. This mass of misfolded proteins disrupts cell function and causes cell death. Mutations in the gene for the prion protein can cause a misfolding of the dominantly alpha helical regions into beta pleated sheets. This change in conformation disables the ability of the protein to undergo digestion. Once the prion is transmitted, the defective proteins invade the brain and are produced in a self-sustaining feedback loop, causing exponential spread of the prion, death within a few months, although a few patients have been known to live as long as two years.
Stanley B. Prusiner was awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine in 1997 for his discovery of prions. For more than a decade, Yale University neuropathologist Laura Manuelidis has been challenging this explanation for the disease. In January 2007 she and her colleagues published an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science and reported that they have found a virus-like particle (but without finding nucleic acids so far) in less than 10% of the cells a scrapie-infected cell line and in a mouse cell line infected by a human CJD agent.
The first symptom of CJD is rapidly progressive dementia, leading to memory loss, personality changes, inappropriate and unmotivated laughter, and hallucinations. This is accompanied by physical problems such as speech impairment, jerky movements (myoclonus), balance and coordination dysfunction (ataxia), changes in gait, rigid posture, and seizures. The duration of the disease varies greatly, but sporadic (non-inherited) CJD can be fatal within months or even weeks. In some people, the symptoms can continue for years. In most patients, these symptoms are followed by involuntary movements and the appearance of a typical diagnostic electroencephalogram tracing.
The symptoms of CJD are caused by the progressive death of the brain's nerve cells, which is associated with the build-up of abnormal prion proteins. When brain tissue from a CJD patient is examined under a microscope, many tiny holes can be seen where whole areas of nerve cells have died. The word 'spongiform' in 'transmissible spongiform encephalopathies' refers to the 'spongy' appearance of the brain tissue. [Emotions may switch suddenly from sadness to happiness with sudden outbursts of laughter. People with kuru become demented and eventually placid, unable to speak, and unresponsive to their surroundings. Most people die about 3 to 24 months after symptoms appear, usually as a result of pneumonia or infection due to bedsores (pressure sores).]
Song: "The Difference Between Old and New Metal" -
The era of metal's mainstream dominance in North America came to an end in the early 1990s with the emergence of Nirvana and other grunge bands, signaling the popular breakthrough of alternative rock. Grunge acts were influenced by the heavy metal sound, but rejected the excesses of the more popular metal bands, such as their "flashy and virtuosic solos" and "appearance-driven" MTV orientation.
Glam metal fell out of favor due not only to the success of grunge, but also because of the growing popularity of the more aggressive sound typified by Metallica and the post-thrash groove metal of Pantera and White Zombie. A few new, unambiguously metal bands had commercial success during the first half of the decade—Pantera's Far Beyond Driven topped the Billboard chart in 1994—but, "In the dull eyes of the mainstream, metal was dead." Some bands tried to adapt to the new musical landscape. Metallica revamped its image: the band members cut their hair and, in 1996, headlined the alternative musical festival Lollapalooza founded by Jane's Addiction singer Perry Farrell. While this prompted a backlash among some long-time fans, Metallica remained one of the most successful bands in the world into the new century
Like Jane's Addiction, many of the most popular early 1990s groups with roots in heavy metal fall under the umbrella term "alternative metal." The label was applied to a wide spectrum of acts that fused metal with different styles, not all associated with alternative rock. Acts labeled alternative metal included the Seattle grunge scene's Alice in Chains and groups drawing on multiple styles: Faith No More combined their alternative rock sound with punk, funk, metal, and hip hop; Primus joined elements of funk, punk, thrash metal, and experimental music. Tool mixed metal and progressive rock; Ministry began incorporating metal into its industrial sound; and Marilyn Manson went down a similar route, while also employing shock effects of the sort popularized by Alice Cooper. Alternative metal artists, though they did not represent a cohesive scene, were united by their willingness to experiment with the metal genre and their rejection of glam metal aesthetics (with the stagecraft of Marilyn Manson and White Zombie—also identified with alt-metal—significant, if partial, exceptions). Alternative metal's mix of styles and sounds represented "the colorful results of metal opening up to face the outside world."
In the mid- and late 1990s came a new wave of U.S. metal groups inspired by the alternative metal bands and their mix of genres. Dubbed "nu metal," bands such as P.O.D., Korn, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, and Linkin Park incorporated elements ranging from death metal to hip hop, often including DJs and rap-style vocals. The mix demonstrated that "pancultural metal could pay off." Nu metal gained mainstream success through heavy MTV rotation and Ozzy Osbourne's 1996 introduction of Ozzfest, which led the media to talk of a resurgence of heavy metal. That year, Korn released Life Is Peachy, the first nu metal album to reach the top 10; two years later, the band's Follow the Leader hit number 1. In 1999, Billboard noted that there were more than 500 specialty metal radio shows in the U.S., nearly three times as many as ten years before. While nu metal was widely popular early in the 2000s, traditional metal fans did not fully embrace the style. By early 2003, the movement had clearly passed its peak, though several nu metal acts, as well as bands with related styles, such as System of a Down, retained substantial followings. -
User extra info: You forgot to mention the birth of death metal in florid,black metal in norway and experimental metal in the UK, then you have all the well know metalcore bands around now.
