It is Friday, my dudes.

Yesterday afternoon I put up a Patreon to help cover some of my site costs. In just 24 hours, 35 of you have generously pledged your support and we’ve already blown past my initial goal of just getting Toilet ov Hell’s bills covered. I’m deeply humbled by your contributions. For months I’ve struggled with the concept of even asking for help with this. Thank you, so, so much for your support. This means the world to me. With the bills paid, I plan to share proceeds with TovH’s writers and editors so that they can be compensated for all of the hard ass work they put in every week.

And I will not let you go empty handed. I’ve been preparing some extremely dope rewards. Premium subscribers will get badass cassettes prepared with love and extremely dank metal. Podcast subscribers will get exclusive episodes with the best jokes me, 365, and Brenocide can write. Digital playlist subscribers can expect rap airhorns. Lots of rap airhorns. It’s all going to be rad as fuck and I’m glad that you want to be a part of it.

FINALLY, I’d like to remind you to vote for the Sexiest Dude in Metal. Polls close tomorrow and your vote will decide who takes home the crown.

Thank you for readership and financial support of this particular iToilet. We’ll see you tomorrow.

Did you dig this? Take a second to support Toilet ov Hell on Patreon!

    Is it me or does it seem like the G/B/U tradition is waning?

    • tigeraid

      NOPE. DONE.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      Ok keeping it going U/B/G style
      Ugly: I spent a pile of money on new tires for the truck and the result was a new, violent shaking at highway speeds. FUCK!
      Bad: After two re-balances, and a trip to the stealership for a complete inspection, it turned out that one of the tires had severe lateral runout.
      G: With my proof in hand that the tires I bought were shit, I returned to the tire store this morning and within the hour the truck had a brand new set of a better brand of tire I had originally bought on it, and problem solved.

      A little inconvenient, but I’m a happy customer.

  • tigeraid

    The Good: My idiot co-worker that was bringing our business down and pissing us all off has been demoted, and soon to be replaced. Feelsrealgood.jpg.

    The Bad: I want to support the Toilet’s Patreon but you’re too late to the game, I can only afford a couple of Patreon donations at the moment. Maybe in the future. 🙁

    The Ugly: I’m working tomorrow fuck you fuck me fuck everyone.

    GOOD: Today is the last day of work before my 2 week shutdown. Headin’ to Regina tomorrow to check out Body Worlds (the thing where you can look at real skinless plasticized cadavers) followed by Dunkirk in IMAX (the true IMAX 70mm film presentation, the only one in Canada actually!). Lookin forward to my first mix tape from the Patreon thing.

    BAD: Unfortunately I don’t have enough Vacation hrs to cover the 2 weeks, so I gotta come in an work around 4ish days during that time.

    UGLY: Most of the metal I’ve been blasting for the last week!

    • Óðinn

      I’m gonna star in Drunkirk tonight.

  • Guacamole Jim

    GOOD: I’mma get me some sweet, airhorn mixtapes. Go Toilet!

    BAD: Still stuck at work on a Friday afternoon. Fuck this wage slavery nonsense.

    UGLY: It’s raining, and I’m biking home. Dammit.

    ALSO GOOD: My boy Ed put me onto Cursed.

    • themaleshoegaze

      Cursed are great – you might wanna give Left for Dead and also Burning Love a shot, both of which have Cursed blood in them and rage in different (Powerviolence-y vs HC-Punkrock) ways but do so af.
      Also, I think somehow personnel related and awesome in a shitty production but megatons of Nineties-Metal/HC heaviness-way: Chokehold and their “Content with Dying” album if you’re into that kind of stuff.

      • You have good taste

        • themaleshoegaze

          …which is what led me here…

          (Thanks! I’ll gladly jump at a chance to comment on HC/Metal-stuff like that…)

      • KJM, Anla’Shok

        What I wouldn’t give for a dark, cold cave right now.(current temp 92F w/heat index of 97F)

        • IT’S HOT AS SHIT HERE AND I WANT TO DIE. THERE IS NO RELIEF, NOT EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT

            Does every house in Texas not have central air rather than a furnace?

          • Man, my central air is working overtime. It just can’t keep up. I fear it may not be long for this world

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            My 10 year old window AC is doing the best it possibly can. I’m hanging on until Sunday when we get some serious relief for about a week(high temps in the 70s all week).

          • OLE’ GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            U COULD ALWAYS BUILD WALK IN MEAT COOLER!!!!!! ADDED BONUS IZ THAT IT WOULD BE BR00TAL & METAL-AF!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • nbm02ss

            I feel ya. The electricity bill is going to be brutal. Thinking about getting a kiddie pool for the back porch to lounge in, just fill it up and toss in a bag of ice.

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            Fortunately I live in a small 2 bed/1 bath apartment. Even at the worst the electric bill doesn’t get much past $100/month.

          • nbm02ss

            I don’t know how effective it would be, but I’m considering getting a smart thermostat w/ wifi and shit.

          • GoatForest

            They can be helpful, but if your system is undersized for your house, it won’t be super effective.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            Spend the money on a thorough servicing by a tech who has Factory training by whoever made your AC unit

          • GoatForest

            This.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            What kind of AC unit is it?

          • It’s a central air system that if I had to guess is probably 15 years old.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            I would recommend having a few pounds of refrigerant added to the system, and take the shielding off of the unit outside and brush all of the shit off of the radiator looking parts. That should help a lot

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            flip the breaker that the system is on off first though

          • Good call

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            Next week when the weather moderates, I’ll be taking a toothbrush to the inside of my window AC, should give it a bit more kick when the next wave of death comes.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            there’s a good chance you’ll find more ice than debris, in which case, let it thaw before getting it going again

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            I’ll probably take it out of the window for a couple days before I even touch it. The weather is gonna be really nice next week.

          • RJA

            That is perfect advice – will generally make a world of difference

          • debris covering my radiator was causing it to trip a breaker on really hot days. cleaned it off, works like a champ. it’s probably 20 years old.

          • GoatForest

            Woof. Good luck. If it does go, make sure you don’t install an r22 system. Those bad boys are circling the ban drain.

          • more beer

            I listened to your band finally. It was just what I thought it would be, i did enjoy it.

          • GoatForest

            Thanks man. Hopefully, the next album will have much better production.

          • more beer

            It’s black metal over production fucks that shit up. But then again I have always liked music that is a little dirtier and grimier.

          • GoatForest

            Maybe you’ll get lucky, and it’s just dirty on the outside. Like Globe said, if you clean it, it may help significantly. You can also wash out the condenser coil with straight soap and water, as long as you go from inside out.
            As an aside, I repair ACs for a living. Just presenting my credentials, so I don’t seem like a know it all douche.

          • Rad! First thing tomorrow I’m gonna clean this thing and hope for the best.

          • GoatForest

            Oh, one more thing: be very gentle with those fins. They are pretty fragile, and if too many of them get bent up, that’s all she wrote.

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            It’s a damned cliche, but the fucking humidity is almost worse than the actual heat.

          • Move to Colorado, it’s hot as shit too but at least it tends to be dry heat.

          • more beer

            The fucking natives here will crucify you for that suggestion. Dry heat my ass by the way. I was out in it all week and it was fucking miserable.

          • Eh, people will keep moving here regardless. Resigned to high-and-still-rising rents until the next market crash, whenever that is. This week was humid as fuck though, strangely humid for Denver.

          • more beer

            I know that and people moving here keeps me in business. But you know how the natives cry, Waahh you moved here, waahh the traffic sucks, Waahh legalize weed in your own state. waahh my rent went up etc etc etc.

          • Touche, touche. Natives can whine, it’s all good- highlights the absurdity of why, when they brag about how awesome CO is, they act surprised when people believe what they’re saying and decide to move here.

            Anyway, things will keep expanding across the board until something pops, and then life goes on regardless.

          • more beer

          I’m a Cherry Garcia guy myself, but you really can’t go wrong with any B&I’s.

    • BobLoblaw

      What are your thoughts on skunkberry?

      • KJM, Anla’Shok

        Not sure I’ve had that one. Recently I’ve had Skunk Dawg and Berry White though. Both were very tasty, but the Skunk Dawg was the superior of the two.

        If Sir More Of Beer shows up, he might be able to offer an opinion on that particular strain.

        • BobLoblaw

          Supposedly skunkberry is an old crossbreed, been getting it regularly for over a year now in a non cool state. First I’ve ever actually tasted any “fruityness” or other descriptors from and the potency even in the less than stellar grow cycles has been consistently decent at least. Havent been to a “legal” state yet but im very interested in really what the difference is.

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            Fortunately I’m in Massachusetts so the best is yet to come.

        • BobLoblaw

          I would appreciate his insight. Recently got a batch of what was supposed to be durban poison and was severely underwhelmed. Coulda been the grow, coulda been bunk or it could have been my high (badoom tshh) expectations.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            man I haven’t heard of the durbins since high school

          • BobLoblaw

            Back then I wouldnt have heard of anything as I didnt partake. Up until a few years ago I rolled my eyes at every assuredly dubious lineage.

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            I’ve also not had any Durban type herb in recent days.

          • BobLoblaw

            Legit seed is still available and every other strain has been very reliable so maybe that one just got away from them or I was expecting much different.

          • more beer

            Durban doesn’t smell like any other type of weed. If you have it or a hybrid of it you will know.

          • BobLoblaw

            Thats what I’m having trouble with, everything else (skunkberry, golden goat, lemon larry (heh),etc) has all been legit. I was so excited too.

          • more beer

            Does it smell kind of like cat piss? Because that is the best description for how it smells that I can come up with. Keep in mind you are some place where it isn’t as strain specific as it is here. People tend to make things up and call things whatever they want to.

          • BobLoblaw

            Nah it didnt. Trust me I know where youre coming from in your assumptions, so bear that in mind. I used to have the same outlook on names because of where I am as well but if I remember correctly its coming from a state you’re very familiar with and always get a heads up of the upcoming strains a few cycles in advance. Thats what I dont get, a few years of 100% accuracy and then this. Just as a disclaimer it was still wonderful, just not stellar.

          • more beer

            Durban just has that very particular smell that’s why I asked. Most of the stuff getting exported from here(which is highly illegal) is grown on the black market. Which could also be a reason. Everything for sale legally here is tracked from seed to sale. The Marijuana Enforcement Division has gotten really sophisticated. So while the bud may be coming from here, there is saying for sure what is what on the black market.

          • BobLoblaw

            Thats why I wanted your epertise, the stringent nature of those sales. I understand the skepticism with the black market and its marketing techniques as am I. Three years and 4 strains only one has not come close to meeting expectations. SKB is always the same flavor profile look and active product yield as are the others I mentioned. When we enjoy the freedoms you do I am sure these little “mishaps” will be few and far between. As to the legality, I’m luckily not involved in any of the seriousness. I just enjoy a comfy position.

          • more beer

            I was just pointing that out, I wasn’t saying you were involved in interstate trafficking. I was just pointing out that because it might have been grown here, it was probably grown by someone doing shady things.

          • BobLoblaw

            Oh its assuredly shady.

          • more beer

            Exactly.

            It’s a buyers market here. That is how much it should be everywhere. It will stay pricey there for a little while. Then what will happen is there will be a saturation of dispensaries.They will all start fighting for everyone’s business, by having a price war. Prices will drop the good dispensaries will stay in business the bad ones will go away and the consumer will be the real winner.

    The Good:
    Day off today, Belgian National Day. Nobody gives a fuck about Belgium or its royal dynasty anymore, but of course I don’t mind a paid holiday.
    I have a couple of smashing metal tracks for me and your ears to enjoy below.

    The Bad:
    Another well known artist dead from suicide. Granted, it’s an artist from a band I’ve mercilessly shat on in the past, but maybe it’s time to repent a little.I spend some time today going through various music websites and I kinda realize the guy’s music meant a ton to a lot of people in the past. For many people from a certain generation, this was the first band they ever loved, their albums were the first albums they ever bought and they were the first step in many a kids’ journey into the world of rock music. That must count for something. I don’t like LP’s music, and I most likely won’t like it in the future either…but maybe I should, you know, respect the impact Chester Bennington and his band had on so many young rock fans.

    The Ugly:
    Last week’s party of my pal’s wedding. Now don’t get me wrong, it was cool and I got appropriately shitfaced. The day after however…

      FOR SURE NEVER EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT HOW MANY LP SONGS ME ACTUALLY KNOW 🙁 !!!!!!

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        By name, I knew only a few songs of their first one: Crawling, In the End, One Step Closer. I’ve heard some of their later stuff, and I remember giving their second album a listen in the distant past (and ending up not liking it haha), but aside from that I wasn’t all that up to date on them.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      Belgium is rad. If I had to pick a Euro country to live in, it’d be there or Lux.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Belgium’s got its good and its bad. In general its certainly not a bad country to live at – especially when it comes to financial security – but on the other hand it isn’t a terribly exciting place either.

        • themaleshoegaze

          Really really liked Ghent and Bruges when I visited. Brussels isn’t too shabby either.
          Good HC, and generally music, scenes, too, I think, though I only know Rise and Fall better (who I once saw play an ALL CAPS AMAZING SHOW in a small cellar club and, a couple years later, a half-assed show in the bigger venue of the same club area scross the street. But the memory of the awesome show persists.)

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Ghent is a nice city. It’s kinda THE “hipster town” in Belgium by a mile tho. The hipster ratio in that city is through the roof. Nothing wrong with that, but it’s rather prominent when you visit the city. Haven’t been there for a while tho.
            Never was really a fan of Brussels to be honest. It’s got its nice parts, but some areas of the city are truly decrepit. Whenever I visit Brussels I can’t help getting an extremely “grey” feeling. On the other hand, I do have a few friends living in the city nowadays (due to work and all that) and apparently they do like living there.

            I live in a more “rural” part of the country near the Dutch border. The only things this area is known for – contradictory enough – are hospitality and organized crime.

        • Señor Jefe El Rossover

          Plenty of beer to forget all of that, haha. You have good proximity there too, though. Day drive will get you into several countries. I’m lucky to be able to drive out of Texas in a day!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Haha! I live a stone’s throw away from the Netherlands. I can literally take a 30 minute walk and I’m in the Netherlands. Germany is a one-hour-drive. Takes a bit longer for me to get to France though…

          Sexual trauma is a tough demon to shake.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      I visited Metalsucks for the first time in several months just to see if they had the little sense of jumping into the Bennington eulogizing bandwagon (not because I see anything wrong in honoring him, but because when you have devoted several articles to talk about how much he sucks and a few in which they outright said that it would be cool if he died, it is best to keep your mouth shut). Hilariously, not only they were all aboard the bandwagon, but they were even chastising Korn and Gwar for “insensitive comments” about the LP singer

      Oh, the irony.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Oh they’re milking that cow dry big time. Gwar was just being Gwar. It’s their shtick, wouldn’t have expected anything else.
        Head on the other hand just had an emotional outburst. Rather unnecessary to devote almost an entire article to calling the guy out.

        • more beer

          I have kept my mouth shut about the whole thing. They weren’t a gateway band for me, I never liked them, but why be a dick about it? Sometimes it is just better to be quiet about things. But those douche bags will milk it for every click they can.

            Never liked their music either, but I do acknowledge this is completely tragic. Still doesn’t mean it’s called for to write about 10 separate articles on the subject.

          • more beer

            It’s all about the clicks and what revenue they can generate.

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            Exactly. I wasn’t a fan either, and at times the best way to show respect is to keep things to yourself. But Benny and Matty sure have no shame

          • more beer

            No shame what so ever, yet they constantly run that more righteous than you bullshit. When they are actually a big part of what is wrong with the metal community.

          • Óðinn

            Legit had to look that dude up after reading these comments. I know of Linkin Park (obviously), but I doubt couldn’t identify one of their songs if I heard it. The only impression I can recall from hearing their music is that they weren’t particularly heavy.

          • more beer

            I never listened to them other than hearing it in bars or on the radio, when I had a job which involved a lot of driving and only a radio in the van. Plus I am old and was listening to underground music for a long time before they were a band. But those fucks at MS exploit these things in unbelievable ways, for that click revenue.

          • Óðinn

            Yeah, I just went over there to read more about this guy. They had at least 5 articles about it.

          • more beer

            You missed another 5 of them. They’re like vultures waiting for you to die.

          • GoatForest

            Yep. Me and Sadistik were talking about that exact thing earlier. Seriously, if I could convince him and Reaping to come over here, I’d be pretty much out of reasons to visit that site.

          • more beer

            I like some of the people there, certainly those 2 there are others as well. I don’t know if Joe would put up with all of the Bikk Blakk Kokk’s that come with Sadistic. But there is also calling out those 2 idiots who run that site on their bullshit.

          • Óðinn

            There’s a sadistic guy who is into big black cocks? Well, what happens in a man’s bedroom is really his own business. 😉

          • more beer

            Yea but he is pretty public about it.

          • sadistik is a funny one

          • Óðinn

            I don’t go there nearly as much as I used to. I’d forgotten how many bad articles they can post in one day.

          • more beer

            I question whether they are actually metalheads in all honesty.

          • Óðinn

            Yes. Anybody who writes that many articles about how much they like the John Bush era Anthrax albums is a poser.

          • more beer

            But besides that they have given hundreds if not thousands of other reasons as well.

          • Óðinn

            The guys at Death Metal Underground are much worse.

            http://www.deathmetal.org/tag/chester-bennington/

          • more beer

            I am familiar with them. They like the bloodsuckers at MS are also entitled to their own opinions. My personal opinion is they are all assholes.

        • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

          Indeed. I remember an old interview with Oderus back in 2012, shortly after Cory Smoot died, in which he said that now he had more royalties to keep for himself. That’s just the way Gwar rolls, even when it concerns their own people. Besides, “LP is a joke” is nowhere near as vile as saying “OMG it would be so cool if Chester B. died a horrific death lolololol”

          As far a Korn’s “bassist” Head, guy is a devout Christian, so of course he is gonna end with a “God bless you all”. Ridiculous to shit on him for that

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah, but they’ve always had raging hateboners for Korn. I get Korn have released a ton of bad music throughout their career, but it’s not like their the only popular rock/metal band guilty of doing this. I guess they think shitting on Korn is gonna boost their “metal cred” or whatever.

            Whatever “metal cred” they’ve earned while shit-talking Korn immediately goes down the drain whenever they cream their pants every time Sevendust or some Corey Taylor-related side project release a new song or when they push another mediocre post-hardcore band.

          • more beer

            They have no metal cred. I have said it before I will say it again. They are the enemies of metal.

      • Maik Beninton™

        MS once wrote a post imagining Chester’s death.
        They are big cucklords.

  • Taylor

    Good: I recently acquired a tagine for the sweet, sweet price of ‘free’ and already I have reaped the rewards of tasty lamb

    Bad: my coworkers are not what I would call ‘competent’

    Ugly: The dish I prepared in the tagine ended up bubbling over, and now I have an oven to clean

    • Cleaning ovens <<<<<<

    • You got a free tagine? Right on! Make all of the lamb.

      • Taylor

        The perks of working in a kitchen shop!
        I’m definitely going to be eating lamb on a daily basis from now on, haha

        • Now that I am profoundly envious of. Lamb here is a bit expensive and of middling quality; even back home in New England, where it’s easy to get it straight from the farm, it’d still be a once-a-week thing tops.

    This week had work has been crazy, depending on who you asked either a guy quit or got fired, so we all had to pick up the work since we are a small office of 5 and is a shit load of crazy work.
    But at least this week has been going fast, bad thing no time to hit gym, hopefully i will go today and maybe on Sunday i can try to catch Dunkirk and try to watch catch up on the G1.
    Hope everyone else has a great weekend.

  • GOOD: The freakin’ weekend, bruhs. Busted my ASS in the gym this week. Really starting to notice the results, especially in my shoulders, chest, and arms.

    BAD: Someone’s email at work got infected with a worm virus. It then set an email with a pdf attachment named “scamfile.pdf” to every single contact that person’s Outlook account had, so I’ve had to help communicate that out to our customers via email at the last minute. Got invited to hang out at a lake all weekend but it’s my dad’s bday weekend and I need to stay home so I can go to his birthday dinner or whatever we end up doing.

    UGLY: Skipped the gym today and ate a big ass bacon cheeseburger instead.

    • Oh, and despite the INCREDIBLY OBVIOUS name of that virus-laden PDF file, 5 people in the company opened the fucking thing. FIVE.

      • there are days i am faced with problems that are difficult to solve, and some of them cause me to question how smart i really am. then i see the other people around me, in this giant corporation, who fall for scams just like the one you described; and i feel like my IT skills are p darn good.

    From the 5 star classic released 46 years ago today, arguably the best Metal album ever made, the standard by which all others MUST be judged.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUSRm2n9V94

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      A serious contender for best metal album ever for sure. Every song is a killer ( and those that dislike ‘Solitude’ are plain WRONG ).

      It’s crazy how many metal bands can directly be traced back to this record. No matter how badly Homme wants to make us believe Black Flag was the main inspiration to Kyuss, all I’m hearing when I listen to Blues For the Red Sun or Welcome to Sky Valley, is just another creative take on the groundwork Master of Reality laid.

  • Only ugly today. I saw and smelled enough weird shit in Central Phoenix today to fill a novel. Time to wash off that cloying piss smell.

  • The Mighty Thorange

    GOOD: Joining a historical re-enactment group tomorrow. Should be fun. Started a high level D&D campaign yesterday. Everything is OP as fuck including my character. it is a home-brewed campaign by our own DM and I think it will be fucking epic. It has already raised themes of morally interesting questions such as are heroes who are envoys of gods morally better as they answer to more than just themselves, or are they worse as they have the capability to have more power and be a fundamentalist and a zealot of their own god? Got the new Wintersun album. Haven’t had time to listen to it yet but I will tomorrow evening.
    BAD: Thought I was done with university but I have to re-sit a module. It is due in one month and haven’t done much at all so far.
    UGLY: Burnt my dinner and the whole house fucking reeks.

    • KJM, Anla’Shok

      Pretty much all the campaigns I’ve ever done were homebrew except a couple of Ravenloft ones.

      • The Mighty Thorange

        I haven’t long started playing and only played two campaigns before, both of which were pre-written. Those were Storm Kings Thunder and Curse of Strahd, both of which were awesome. Storm King was successful and everybody died in Strahd. This home-brew campaign is us continuing with our characters from Storm Kings Thunder but at level 15. It’s fun as fuck. Especially as I have made my fighter take a few levels in barbarian and now I am basically a god of melee combat death with insane AC.

        • KJM, Anla’Shok

          We actually managed to kick Strahd’s ass, but there was 4 of us all at levels 8-12 with some heavy artifact power.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      I would love to do historical reenactments!

      • The Mighty Thorange

        I will let you know how it goes next Friday. The cool things about this one is that the headquarters is in an old castle just outside my town!

    Just jumping into a random thread to say,

    DUDES, I was actin a bit weird cos of doing thru some weird ass shit. But it’s actually trivial shit that ended up not mattering that much and I let it blow up into way too big a mess. Ended up rolling out of Austin and hopefully going to the Dallas / Arlington area soon.

    I got away from all social media like Facebook and haha went thru 3 Instagram accounts. Deleted the old disqus account too. Honestly, I’ve even been limiting my internet shit to nothing but music and poker stuff. Occasionally check blabbermouth and… the other site… but haven’t been back here cos it felt weird. Well, it don’t feel weird no mo. Prob won’t be commenting much on anything anymore but I’ll be a reader again. Hell, now I got a few months of backlog to go thru too. ToiletOvHell is legit as hell and yall motherfuckers are cool ass bitches.

    Workin on working on myself thru playing music and playing cards and getting started in starting over. But gotta let the few cool motherfuckers out there know they;re appreciated and shit.

  • NDG

    Good: waiting for a call today which will hopefully be a job offer at a brewery.

    Bad: current job is sucking my will to live. Hopefully above offer comes through as I am already 3/4 out the door.

    Ugly (potentially): my band were asked to do the below gig in November. We said “yes”. We haven’t played since Feb 2015 so we’d better get our shit together.
