Tyranny of Tradition Is A Real Website!!!

eagle

There have been a great number of allegations thrown at Tyranny of Tradition over the past few days.  While our record for jurnalismcore integrity should stand on its own, as leader of this vast and unimpeachable media empire, I felt it necessary to respond in order to make sure that the public understands the depths to which we will plunge to in order to expose the truth.

In an article written by Grimlock Von Myxlplyx, Edward-In-Chief of the anti-American, freedom-hating, infant-killing tabloid Universe Number Five, it is claimed that Tyranny of Tradition has printed several articles that are untrue.  If I’ve learned anything from watching American politics, it is that we must first attack and slander the source of these lies, then, if we have time left over, address the charges.  For, if you, the public, are able to see that the person making these charges has ever lied or done anything wrong in their entire lives, you will believe nearly anything I have to say.

First, you should know that Grimlock Von Myxlplyx is not even the real name of the fellow over at Universe Number Five.  In reality, his name is Dr. Oystein Von Deafendorfer.  He uses a cryptic assumed name because he is wanted in several states, as well as the country of Angola, for robbing ferrets from pet stores using a bayonet.  Second, while he may be a “doctor”, his degree from Oxford University is in Rabbit Cloning.  He is certainly not an expert in jurnalismcore and is in no position to critique our rigorous ethical standards.

His website has claimed things that are completely preposterous. In 2012, they claimed that the band Dying Fetus plagiarized the song “From Womb To Waste” from the 1966 Isley Brothers classic “Baby Don’t You Do It”.  The independent law firm of Nixon, Rosewater, and Eichmann determined conclusively BEFORE the article was written that it was actually stolen from The Brothers Johnson’s 1977 hit single “Strawberry Letter #23”.  No mention of this was made in Dr. Deafendorfer’s article!  You call that jurnalismcore?!?!

Further, Universe Number Five is actually a front organization for Al-Qaeda.  Most of the articles are written in a complex code, that, when translated into Yiddish, reveal critical, top-secret information on the location of important American celebrities like Dyan Cannon, George Kennedy and Lisa Marie Presley, all of whom have been considered targets for assassination by Islamic extremists.  Finally, Dr. Deafendorfer has admitted to me on several occasions that he does not like Slayer.

Just so you, the public, are clear, Tyranny of Tradition is the finest and most truthful source of jurnalismcore on this planet.  We have a staff over 9,000 fact-checkers who steadfastly comb through each article in order to ensure that every word printed is completely, one hundred and fifty thousand percent true.  Before an article reaches your eyes, it has been inspected by some of the top trained editors on the planet from some of the most prestigious universities including Harvard, Yale and University of Phoenix.  Our site has received hundreds of thousands of awards including the coveted Charles R. Ponzi Award For Truth back in 2008.

I often see comments attached to Tyranny articles saying things like “Dude, you know Tyranny of Tradition is a fake website, right?”  These words make me the most angry, because Tyranny IS a real website.  We have a URL address for godsakes!  If you look at your computer screen the site is REALLY there.  I am not a magician.  I can’t go to your house, get inside your brain and make you see things that don’t exist.

I know the Tyranny of Tradition is real because it is, in fact, made of molecules.  Now, I know molecules aren’t important to the people of this generation, but I come from a time when molecules really meant something.  To slander molecules by claiming they are not real is an insult to myself, my family and those who have served in the armed forces to protect American molecules from the invasion of foreign molecules.

I leave you with the words of my colleague, the esteemed scholar and quote writer Ralph Waldo Emerson.  When Mr. Emerson was asked what he thought of our fine website he simply shook his head and replied “Tyranny of Tradition is the truth, the American public is the illusion.”

Yours in Truth, Justice and The American Way,

The Guy From Universe Number Five Has Hobbit Feet

As I was walking to Walgreens on Friday, a carrier pigeon with seven wings landed on my shoulder.  I opened the message in its talons and it summoned me to a cave 52 miles outside of Provo, Utah.  I immediately ran to my car, sped to the airport and bought a ridiculously priced ticket for Provo on a plane leaving in 35 minutes.  After all, this sort of thing had never happened to me before.

The message read simply “The Guy From Universe Number Five Has Summoned You”.  Then, it gave me the coordinates.  That was all.

When I arrived in Provo, I stole a car out of the long term parking lot (2009 Ford Focus…the thing handles like a dream) and drove about 120 miles per hour to get to the cave.  I arrived five minutes later with the hoof of a deer in the car’s front grill and a look of complete panic on my face.

When I entered the cave,  I encountered a beast like I had never seen before.  It had 47 horns and 22 tails.  Fire shot from its gills.

“Are you…..Grimlock Von Myxlplyx?”  I asked shyly.

“GRRR4AGDR7WHWY#U+=Y#U??!#?&#YG$#Y!#%#%aHB!#UJN$@NTR,” it responded.

And the interview began….

Grimlock…..where is Universe Number Five located?


A question a child might ask, but not a childish question. First, one has to look within themselves to determine where Universe Number Five is NOT. Then, after one has verified proof that a certain point is NOT Universe Number Five, one must accept that everything else is Universe Number Five. Up to and including this. And that.

What is your Universes current relationship with Universe Number 14?

Being that Universe Number 14 is part of Universe Number Five, I treat it in much the same manner the band Dead Horse would treat the Spice Girls. Even though there is a perceived separation, one can’t escape that beyond the illusion it is one and the same. And neither. While both.

What is the relationship between spirituality and metal?


If you cannot enter a deep meditation while listening to Gore Beyond Necropsy or Exit-13, you are simply not trying hard enough. When metal isn’t tried hard enough, you get bands like Asking Alexandria, Pantera and Black Veil Brides. When spirituality isn’t tried hard enough, you get religious zealots who want to manipulate the social structure of society or groups of easily misled young men willing to blow themselves up to further a cause that would ultimately seek to suck the life from humanity. When both are merged and utilized to their maximum potential in our everyday lives however, we can do a myriad of wonderful things, up to and including drinking coffee and eating fried chicken. That, my friend, is Mu. That, my friend, is Enlightenment.

I’ve heard you and the DRI mascot had a falling out. Can you tell us a little bit about what started the feud? Is there any chance of reconciliation?

If I were a lesser man, I’d blame Wendy Moncrief. However, I believe in accountability. Foremost, I should never have assumed that he was without emotion and basic human feelings when I reported his survival of the building fire. While I’m glad that he didn’t become a victim of a Righteous Pigs song, I was very callous in the way I handled the conversation with him. Plus, he’s Bobby Gustafson’s friend. For that he deserves a hug and some understanding.

If you were trapped on an island with one Incantation album for the rest of your life, which would it be?


If it can’t be their entire discography slammed into an mp3 CD, then with apologies to “Onward To Golgotha” and “Diabolical Conquest”, I’d have to select “Make It Big”.

If you were trapped on an island with Incantation what album would you listen to first?

I wonder if they’d play “Make It Big” in its entirety. Kinda like the “Mindcrime” tour… Just play “M.I.B.” followed by an assortment from their other albums. Hell, they could even do it unplugged if they had to. Ukeleles, Hawaiian style. “Oahu To Golgotha” Tour 2013, get your T-shirts! Get your programs!

If you were trapped in the belly of a giant narwhal all with the former members of Sepultura what would you listen to first?


Oh, that’s easy. I’d listen to something Wu-Tang-y like Sarcofago’s “I.N.R.I.” I figure if anything will get the Seps back to their roots (bloody or otherwise) it’d be that. Perhaps it would wake them from their coma or whatever malaise they’ve obviously been going through for the last 20 years.

According to Congressman and former Obituary saxophonist Allen West, one of the main reasons he lost in his bid to become President of Florida was because of the Universe Number Five article claiming he was made of gorgonzola cheese. How do you respond to these charges?


First of all, I stand firmly behind the reporting of my sources. If Source X says that West is Gorgonzola, then it’s true. Look, this is Florida. The strangest things in the entire universe happen in this state on a daily basis. So bizarre are we, in fact, that the West/Gorgonzola news wasn’t even newsworthy enough to make the papers that day. It was seriously news item #1,178 the day it broke.

What was your first reaction when you realized that Ice Cube was doing children’s films?


I was stoked, actually! The carbon-based electro-soul that represents itself to humanity as Ice Cube is a multifaceted being. People like to label him as the guy who made some of the greatest hip-hop albums of all-time. While, of course, that is true, he’s not to be pigeonholed. He is a rapper, an actor, an activist, a soccer mom, a balloon enthusiast, a kangaroo caretaker, the tuba player on Opeth’s “Blackwater Park” album, an electrician, an electric eel, eclectically ill, and has a license to chill. Respect.

What’s your opinion on consonants?


As a Scrabble player, I love them. Especially ‘Q’. Until I started playing Scrabble, I didn’t know that “Qi”, “Qat”, and “Suq” were actual words. Now they are straight up weapons of word game assassination. Also, when you experience getting “Quixotic” in a triple word score box, everything, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning another Super Bowl, pales in comparison.

Who is your favorite Black Sabbath singer Tony Martin, Ian Gillian or Leopold Stokowski?


It troubles me that you neglected to include Jeff Fenholt here. Fenholt has a resume that would make George O’Leary proud. According to his autobiography, he was once a full time vocalist for Black Sabbath during the 80’s. He even wrote of tales of drugs, abuse, debauchery, etc. Why? To further his televangelism career, according to his siblings. He wanted to sound as awful as possible so as to make his redemption seem more impressive. Once it came to light that the dude was at least semi-fraudulent, Trinity Broadcasting Network fired him, or at least kinda started neglecting him. In reality though, he was romantically linked to Salvador Dali’s wife in her last days. That is much more impressive than singing for Black Sabbath. Think about it, anyone could sing for Sabbath, heck they let Ozzy do it. However, scoring with the wife of the greatest artist of the last 200 years?? THAT is metal!

In closing, thanks Keith. When I grow up, I wanna wear your shoes. Also, if you don’t own “Testimony Of The Ancients” by Pestilence, I’ll pray for your lost soul. And stuff. Read the “Boomer Bible”. Tip your waitresses… over. Out!

If you haven’t been to Universe Number Five, you’ll end up there eventually.  So…why wait?
