I'm mostly pissed at those people who go around saying stuff like "fucking swede" and/or other abusive phrases/words directed at the Swedish people... sure, some may treat them bad and all that, but at least they get to live here, they get funds to get started, and a place to live... show some f***ing gratitude, is all I'd like to say to them :)

EDIT:
also, about the prison topic:
I think prison should be what it is meant to be: A punishment
but; I also see the good thing about preparing them for when they get out and all that... although, as prisons are in Sweden today, they shouldn't be...

can't have criminals sitting in friggin paradise for a few months, after they've committed a crime... as someone here said, they probably won't think twice before committing a crime again, if the punishment is better than the alternative

some prisoners managed to smuggle in cellphones and guns into prison with ease, not too long ago (can't remember when, might even have been last year)
some of them were murderers, but they couldn't be to heavily guarded or checked, since that would probably have raised one hell of a commotion where papers/politicians would claim that "the prisoners' integrity have been violated"
anyway, they got out and it costed LOADS of money and time to finally seize them

if they had let prisons be prisons, 3 things would have been different:
1) Those wouldn't have been able to get out so easy
2) The search to re-capture them wouldn't have had to happen
3) The prisoners would have complained about prison
"gee this sucks... Why do I have to sit in this crappy place?"
"well, go figure!"

Learn to deal with it. As the global economy becomes more prevalent, this type of thing will only happen more.
They work for less money because its more than what they got in their own country, politicians only make it our problem. Fair enough if someone that will work harder gets your job, but they aren't being employed because of that, its because employers are being allowed to exploit the immigrants, which is unfair to them and to the British people who are losing out on the job because there are immigrants who work for near nothing.

So yeah, I'm complaining. Shit in the UK costs a hell of a lot more than in the US ;)

Ooh how many opinions spring to mind. I hate hate and utterly hate the society nowadays, both in england and in sweden. They're pretty much alike aswell. But during my life i've learnt to keep my opinions too myself. I remember when i was 13 years old. I was in school and i was talking to a friend. We come up about this society. all of a sudden i'm being dragged outside and got my balls jammed down my throat. Best to keep things to yourself.

Oh no my friend, hardstyle is only the tip of the euphoric iceberg, we like to call dance.

Hardhouse, trance, french underground funk, cream, donk, hardstyle... i love it all, and you should too.

It's pure fecking garbage. I've said it once, I've said it twice, hell, I've said it countless times. If you ever get to look back on this comment in a few years I 100% guarantee you will have agreed with me. Those exact 'genres' above are what kiddies and e-tards listen to before they either a) Walk away from the whole electronic scene, b) Discover the true quality subgenres.

This comes to you from someone who was a raver for almost a decade, a rave promoter for half that. I've hired Tiesto, Kai Tracid and much much more.. I often state that music is subjective - and it is - but the overwhelming majority of those genres you described are pure, unadulterated crap from every perspective. If you want to explore better electronic music just ask.. But loving those above genres is like saying you 'love rock' after listening to Britney Spears; you are marked as a noob that hasn't at all explored the possibilities. Harsh, but true!

I use to listen to metallica, slayer, ratm, all that bollocks, then shit like yellow card, green day - wow, more bollocks - Hell, that shit makes u depressed.

I'll admit, stuff like Trance mostly is pretty... simplistic? its just a noise I listen to, not something I LISTEN to, if u get me.

You know every now and then you get one of those tunes that your like "WOAH! im gunna listen to that on the way to work, during work, on the way home, while I sleep, while I'm on the shitter, when I'm in the shower.." <--Since I've started listening to some of the less-well known dance artists, thats what every tune is like. Some more of the mainstream artists like dj sammy, tiesto, paul van dyk, rankin, andy c are so commercialised it all starts sounding the same.

I also like vocal and non-vocal drum n bass, uk garage, fuck - I LOVE IT ALL.

Its just.... fuckin sexual.

Ok, well then you give me some idea of what elements of what you're hearing you like and give me the chance to point you in the direction of stuff that I think will satisfy your desires in a non-cheese way!
