Burzum is one of my buddy Alex's biggest inspirations. So yesterday with some time to kill as I had a cup of coffee at Starbucks, I figured I'd google Burzum. See what he's up to.
The regular readers of this blog will know that I am a sucker for Metal. And even though I've never understood how on earth anyone could enjoy listening to black metal, the original Scandinavian Black Metal artists did have one kick-ass attitude and aesthetic. And of the early 90's acts, most would agree that Burzum is one of the most captivating. But to my surprise, a Norton ConnectSafe ad appeared, explaining that Burzum's official webpage - burzum.org - is "not allowed", because the "website is categorized as Hate".
I am not even going to bother making a case supporting or denying that burzum.org is a webpage of "Hate". I'm just going to say: thank you, Starbucks and Norton, for using your "web content filtering policy" to keep me safe from "Hate".
Not for Pussies!
