What’s New at Silent Motorist Media?

If things have seemed a bit quiet around here for the past few days, it hasn’t been for a lack of activity on our end. In fact, we’ve been hard at work with a slew of new projects and site additions for you. Some of these we can’t quite announce yet. The purpose of this

Your Happy Life: Day Four

Day One Day Two Day Three Yesterday, we met a man at a funeral. Edifying experience, wasn’t it? You, being happy, cannot relate to the protagonist. For this, you should consider yourself fortunate. Your job, after all, was never to relate, but merely to watch. Yes, to watch, without empathy, without care, perhaps even with

Band: Al Ard Album: Al Ard Country of Origin: Italy Release Date: June 22nd, 2018 Genre: Black metal/noise, experimental.

Your Happy Life: Day Three

How can you know you are happy if you don’t know misery of others? All things exist as comparisons. A man finds himself a funeral. His wife isn’t with him, and, despite the impossibility of the situation, he feels a sharp stab of guilt as he imagines her weeping unceasingly into the folds of the

Your Happy Life: Day Two

You are awake. You make it, somehow, to the coffee pot. You know the routine. It doesn’t change. Do you fill the filter or pour the water first? It doesn’t matter, really. As long as your wait for the coffee is minimal, as long as the kids don’t wake up before the brewer cackles to

Deeper Underground Album Review

It’s even worse when you’ve heard the
