Flush It Friday: April Showers Bring Satan

Welcome to another weekly airing of grievances, followers ov the flush! You should all know the drill by now: this is a place to kick off the weekend by celebrating the good, lamenting the bad, and lulzing at the ugly. So come on in here and put your last few hours of work time to good use.

THE GOOD: It’s finally Spring, which means my desire to be frozen by icewinds and die slowly and/or horribly in the middle of a bleak gray wintry nothingness is lessened somewhat. Somewhat. Also I’m working through a to-do list that actually has me pretty excited because I’m discovering that doing stupid around-the-house shit is, like, way easier than I thought.

THE BAD: As always, days are annoyingly stuck at a mere 24 hours, which is not nearly enough time to work, spend time here, stay unfat, write music and sleep/eat/shit/etc. If everyone would get on board with my 30 Hour Day proposal we’d all be a lot happier. Sure, the calendar and global timekeeping as we know it would have to be thrown out and redesigned from scratch, but stop whining for fuck’s sake, that’s a small price to pay for one man to have six more hours per day to write articles containing Gaahl references.

THE UGLY: Speaking of Gaahl, watch out you guys, Satan is everywhere.

Finally, because it’s Friday, enjoy some of my favorite inspirational lyrics from my favorite bands.

    FRIDAY SELFIE

  • THE GOOD: OMG KATY PERRY. It is spring and life is great. AND! Scrimm has a new job!
    THE BAD: Lots of water might drown some of the trees I just planted.
    THE UGLY: N/A

    • *sees Katy Perry picture
      “brb, gotta use the restroom”

      • I about died when I saw that picture.

        GL

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        Where do you think I’m at right now? 😉

        • *not in Heaven*

          🙁

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            The mantle of Diety weighed heavily on my mortal shoulders.

  • Dr. Dubz

    Good: Finally getting new couches.
    Bad: I forgot my travel mug this morning, so I’ve only had one cup of coffee instead of two today.
    Ugly: My wife and I both picked up some sort of 24-hour bug, and it did weird things to my poops.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    GOOD: Uh, is that Katy Perry?

    GOOD, BAD, UGLY: I appeared in a criminal court today to try and expunge something that is thirteen (13) years old from my criminal record. A county attorney actually showed up in court to argue against it, despite my near eight years of sobriety and not a criminal conviction during that time and for a bit before. She was arguing the way the law was written, like, semantically. It was actually pretty stressful and mildly upsetting. I have to wait a week to hear what the judge decides. Wish me luck, send good vibes, say prayers if you’re into that, do a rain dance, whatever. Thanks guys ❤

    • Maybe if you had used the word “flush” during your appeal they would have taken you more seriously. But seriously, I hope that all goes well for you! Hang tough

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        I actually didn’t have the opportunity to speak which is likely for the best. I just stood there while my lawyer (who seemed very sharp) and the county attorney presented their cases.

    • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

      Good luck mate, hope things go your way.

    • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

      Sending prayers your way from any Diety I can think of.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        I would accept them from all denominations, persons of faith of persons lacking faith.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Diety: God of Diets

        • Shrimp ov Bad Opinions

          I actually always pronounced diety in my head for some reason.

        • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

          Whoopsie

    • Tyree

      Got my thing expunged a few months ago. It’s a good feeling after a year and a half of bullshit.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Fucking A Tyree. I hired this dude last April and he shelved the case until the first of this year because “beneficial things were happening in the state legislature”. I believe him, but someone from the state was there to argue the law that was just passed.

        • Tyree

          Good luck man, hope it works out for you.

        • Virgil the Ghost Poet

          Good luck duder.

    • Lawyers suck, I worked for those assholes for 3 years. Worst professional experience of my life.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Were you a paralegal or a clerk or something?

        • Did accounting work, they lacked common sense about just about everything other than legal work.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        Don’t insult lawyers. My dad is a lawyer and a very good one.

        • Sue me about it.

          • The Beargod

            His Pa might.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            He wont. He mostly handles criminal cases.

    • best of luck and skill to you, NegroD. 2015 seems to be looking like a way better year than 2014 for most of us…

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Despite a myriad of real life adult problems this has actually been a kick ass year so far.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        Agreed. 2014 was a shitty year for me.

    • Vladimir Poutine

      Good luck man! Let’s hope the character you’ve demonstrated wins out in the end.

      The bree’s from my Wormed listening this evening shall be in your honor.

    • more beer

      This kind of stuff is why I despise lawyers. Also why the system sucks. Someone who actually turns their life around, and gets in no trouble for 13 years plus gets sober they want to continue to ostracize. Even with a new law. The states attorney is going to fight against new law. That is not what her job is. It`s to uphold the laws that are on the books weather she likes them or not. Good luck with this man.

  • The good: Found out my anthropology professor was in two episodes of Ancient Aliens.
    The bad: Can’t find video.
    The ugly: Seeing Thanatology with Cattle Decapitation tomorrow. Gonna be dirrty.

      I saw that show announcement. That’s going to friggin’ rule.

  • Guacamole Jim

    HERHEJRHEJHEG That Katy Perry picture.

    THE GOOD: Outdoor basketball season is upon me. I’m very, very happy to be back outside, shooting hoops, taking names, crushing posers.

    THE BAD: On my way to the court yesterday, I was longboarding (I know, shut up) down a hill, took a sharp turn, hit a patch of gravel, lost control, and smoked a light pole with my ass (specifically the right cheek). I can’t walk properly today.

    THE UGLY: The bruise that is going to form all over my butt.

  • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

    The Good: After a month of searching, me and my wife finally found an affordable home in a safe neighborhood. We are both in steady jobs, virtually debt free, and I’m listening to the new Impellitteri album as we speak.

    The Bad: I Hate my job more and more by the day. But I gotta stick at it for now because it pays good and we are gonna be having mortgage payments soon. (Maybe child expenses too? Lol kinda half joking on this because we are not necessarily super careful when things get hot and heavy.

    The Ugly: OH MY GOD MOTHER FUCK YOU CHALICE DUNGEON LEVEL 5 FUCK EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BULLSHIT FUCKING MOBS AND ENEMIES GOD DAMMIT I LOVE THIS GAME.

    • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

      Congrats on the house man! Owning a home is extraordinarily rewarding–and also maddeningly stressful at times. In modern times, home ownership is kinda a big deal. You should be proud! Keep up the good work (and keep looking for a job that pays well but that you hate slightly less as well).

      I can also relate to the tendency to be less careful when the hormones/animalistic urges set in. Ovulation can turn people into beasts! Kids are awesome, but if you aren’t ready, definitely be as careful as possible.

      • I feel like this is the only ovulation we should be talking about….

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBtpm1onSU8

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        Thanks man. Yeah hoping kids are a little further out in our future lol

        • i’m 33 and don’t have kids. i don’t regret it any day of my life, and i think i’m past the threshold of wanting to have them.
          on the weekends i get to wake up, start drinking beer, and hang with my neighbors and play video games!

          • Herr Schmitty

            That is my life now at 28, and I dearly hope that remains my life at 33. I don’t consider having kids an achievement nor a mark of maturity.

            I mean, I get that they can be incredibly rewarding for some! But I like sleeping, eating, vacationing and being selfish. Children have a cost: Financial, energetic and social. Maybe my mind will change. So far, though, I feel exactly how you do.

          • Shrimp ov Bad Opinions

            I feel like I would be far too much of a lazy ass to even be allowed to have children even if I wanted to have them.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Dr. Wife and I want kids someday, but she’s gotta finihs med school first.

          • Herr Schmitty

            That’s the other problem; especially for women, having children can really delay or damage one’s career path. You guys are smart to have the plan and finish the education first.

            I definitely saw friends of mine make the mistake of having kids and then trying to do school during it, without interruption. Some made it work; most did not.

          • Shrimp ov Bad Opinions

            People seem like they really want to rush the whole getting married and having children thing, and that seems to really fuck them over most of the time. I don’t see what’s the problem with having them at around 27-30 or something instead of 22.

          • i hear that. many people with whom i’ve grown up felt the need to take “life steps” as i call them: graduate college, marry your sweetheart, buy the house, get a dog, start having kids.
            whether it’s societal or family pressure, or people just think “well it’s what adults do!” i dunno, but i think it’s getting better in general

          • What adults do is being responsable with their plans and their words. Not in spreading humanity so we can choke us in misery.

            I mean, politicans are humans, and they’re the worse.

          • Herr Schmitty

            Yeah; people are definitely waiting longer to marry and have children, although there’s still obviously plenty of folks who do both young.

            I think the last I read about the study of this stuff in our culture, it was folks who attended college at some point that had more sexual partners, married later and had children at later ages. Folks with high school educations or lower tended to marry earlier and have children at younger ages.

          • more beer

            Everyone has their own path in life. There is no one path that is right or wrong it`s just just the path you choose. Every step is a life step no matter the choice. Doing life the way you want to is the best way. Hopefully there is beer on your path!

          • Herr Schmitty

            I think some folks want to have kids young so they have the physical energy to play/interact with kids more. Others just crave having their own family, I guess.

            I side with you. I don’t see the reason to rush. If anything, you’re better equipped for children in your 30’s! Assuming a stable career path (which I know isn’t a given), you’ll be making more money, have a better routine, more life experience, more maturity… just seems like it’d be a lot easier.

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            That’s what we are holding out for. I’m 22 and she is 20. We want kids to be something that happens in 5-7 years from now.

          • Keegan Lavern Still

            Responsibility and priorities. You and your lady have them. *high five*

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            It’s actually the exact opposite nowadays. Most women wait until they are 35-40 to think about having kids, which biologically is almost too late (in many cases, it is too late).

          • omg, I would like to see those little kids <3

          • sweetooth0

            33 also, no kids, wife doesn’t want them either (eternally thankful for that). Honestly at this stage in the game, it starts to become not such a good idea to have them. I have read that the older you get, the higher the risk of birth defects and whatnot. If healthy kids are a financial burden and a huge responsibility, imagine special needs kids. No thanks. I simply don’t have the empathy to handle that kinda shit.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            You da man Jimmy!

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I don’t want kids either. I do hope to get married someday.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      I just got to the Unseen Village, fuck that place too. Resurrecting giants are you serious?!?!

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        I got through that place as fast as possible. Ran to the shortcuts off the bat and then went back for all the goodies

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          I might give that a try. I really want to get the treasure chest in that room with two giants and the wheelchair minigunner but fuck it if they haven’t slaughtered me each and every time.

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            I can’t remember what was in the treasure chest, but I remember feeling like it wasn’t worth it

    • Congrats on the house. It’s a good thing if you are handy so you can fix stuff. If not find trustworthy people to do the work. And put a jimmy hat on your willy so you can enjoy some freedom a little while longer.

      • Dr. Dubz

        My dad is one of the most skilled dudes I’ve ever met and has done a bunch on his house. I’ve tried to pick up what skills I can, but it’s hard to do much when you lack a large tool collection.

        • The Beargod

          In the words of the great almost-late Vesku: You don’t need (work)tools, you need workmen!
          (Boyo, that sounds better in Finnish.)

          • Dr. Dubz

            But there’s something very satisfying about doing something by yourself with your own hands.

          • The Beargod

            That’s actually what he ment.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Ah. I think something was lost in translation.

          • Herr Schmitty

            I’ve definitely heard this said, and I have no doubt that it’s true for some, but I’ve never felt a sense of ‘reward’ from making something with my own two hands. Visual artwork? Nope. Woodworking? Nein. Farming? Never. Welding? Get that shit away from me!

            I am just not cut out for that type of shit. Any hour I spend ‘building’ something is an hour during which my soul is screaming.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Interesting. Do you have any sort of creative outlet? Writing?

          • Herr Schmitty

            Nope! Aside from the 2 articles and small contributions I’ve made here,I haven’t written diddly shit for formal publishing since I finished my journalism degree. I don’t write, play music, build things, etc.

            Unless you count cooking. I do some cooking! Even then, though, the reward isn’t from doing it myself; the reward is eating something tasty.

          • The Beargod

            I must admit I am of this mimd as well. Except for workimg at the summer cottage. I hate it but afterwards it feels so very good.

          • 1) LOL at your last sentiment!
            B) few things in life are more satisfying to me than replacing an alternator or other such car repairs.

          • KJM

            I feel good about myself when I get the job done, but doing it is hellish especially if things don’t the way they should.

          • Herr Schmitty

            Damn, I don’t even get that part; it’s basically OH GOD THIS IS AWFUL WHY AM I DOING THIS DEAR GOD until I’m done, at which point all I feel is that I’m glad I’m no longer building or creating something.

          • more beer

            I do all my own work on my truck. You are very right about that. Making your vehicle run when it doesn`t is very rewarding.

          • KJM

            Same here, which isn’t exactly conducive to being a techie. I especially hate putting together furniture.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            I concur, Dubya. Big time. I feel that way. Being able to do for one’s self is extremely gratifying. I think it harkens to a more primitive and physical human ideal/virtue. Though we are not often tasked with “directly” doing things to necessitate our survival (i.e. foraging for food, building shelter, surviving the elements, etc), I believe we find appropriate analogs in labor and workmanship.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Vesku is eternal.

          • The Beargod

            In death he shall reign forever.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            He will not die.

          • The Beargod

            …and Spede’s just taking a vacation.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            No, he died.

          • The Beargod

            I DON’T BELIEVE YOU! EVIL SPIRIT BEGONE!

        • My dad is as well although I haven’t learned much because he’s not very patient if you don’t pick up what he’s trying to show you right away. I’ve had tools removed from my hands countless times.

        • more beer

          There are few things in life as awesome as a great set of tools.

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        Thanks man, I’m a bit of a tinkerer but this will really test my skills.

    • Vladimir Poutine

      Congrats on the house and being debt-free! Definitely something to be proud of on both counts.

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      Congrats.

  • Good – friday is here and consumption will start in a few hours
    Bad – Busy week at work in which I’m trying to get all this stuff done before the wife has this baby.
    Ugly – I heard about some woman today on the radio. She made $20k on cam last year by letting people watch her eat fast food and fart. I’m not making this up.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      How many hours do you think she put in? Could I put in twice as many hours and make twice as much money?

      • Dr. Dubz

        Do you think you have the right face for that?

      • That was all I heard about it. I question the individuals who paid money to see this. I doubt she was attractive and/or naked.

    • I would do that for free. Hit me up on Skype.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      What a useful life skill. Surely that fad of watching people eat will never go away.

  • The Beargod

    GOOD: Katy Perry’s.. uh… hands
    BAD: You think you conquered it and BOOM! It’s back.
    UGLY: Everything is beautiful. Except me, Bears are sjpposed to be ugly and hairy flushers.

  • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

    Good: Work, my record store got on something I have to pick up, We Are Harlot, computer is finally almost done getting fixed

    Bad: Royal Thunder, my cruiser board from the 80s is broken, my local record store sold the other album I almost bought on Monday.

    Ugly: Bobby Blotzer’s Ratt Experience.

    • HAHAHA BOBBY BLOTZER

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        He’s a joke.

        • “HI, I AM BOBBY BLOTZER AND I PLAY MEDIOCRE-CORE DRUMS IN A WASHED UP COVER BAND OF A BAND I USED TO PLAY FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS AGO. WE R GUD”

          GL

  • Shrimp ov Bad Opinions

    The Good: No one that I know and/or care about died. That’s literally it.
    The Bad: Carpal Tunnel, Spring, 24 hours is WAY too fucking little.
    The Ugly: My sister’s new hair dye.

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      My sister has hair like the guy from A Flock of Seagulls

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Pics? I’d love to see that

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          I don’t have any. Plus, why would I show you all what my sister looks like? She’s the exact opposite of me musically.

          • Dr. Dubz

            So, she’s like us musically?

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            No. She likes pop punk and scene crap. I actually like a lot of the music posted here but I know more about the music I like to talk about.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            She likes All Time Low doesn’t she (well, if what you told me is true)… tell her I pity her tortured soul. 😉

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Yes she does. She loves them and I’ve had to vote for her to win tickets to see them in NYC. I had to vote for her 10 times in a row.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            You poor child, following Sykesism is the best way to cure yourself of these ills.
            In all seriousness, she will probably move on from that shite (minus the good pop-punk and scene bands, yes they do exist imo) and you will both be better for it.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            She likes BMTH and A day to Remember but she also likes Pierce The Veil.

          • Shrimp ov Bad Opinions

            I live by the hope that my sister may one day stop listening to those abominations.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I hope she does too. She doesnt know who Black Flag is but she thinks Issues are hardcore.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            She will be converted to Sykesism and shown the true ways of the core. Seriously, my former character only brought PTV on tour to show people how shit they are, too bad I/he failed. They recently did a sold out tour with *shudder* Sleeping With Sirens.
            Good on her though with BMTH and ADTR, at least she’s part of the way there.

          • CyberneticOrganism
          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Basically like that minus the upwards parts on the sides and not totally blonde.

          • So basically nothing like the picture you posted.

            Also, sorry I poked fun earlier. I promise it was meant to tasteful!

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            It’s fine. Technically speaking she has the swoop in the hair like this guy but it’s more blonde and without the upwards stuff on the sides.

  • Tyree

    The Good: My Hells Headbash 2 tickets should be in my mailbox when I get home. Also my fridge is stocked with beer, tonight should be relaxing yet very loud. Also, I got my tax return and it’s a hefty amount.

    The Bad: I’ve spent a fuck load of money on my car. Goodbye tax return. Fuck you car!

    The Ugly: I’ve had diarrhea for the past 3 days. Fucking yellow and gooey looking slime shits.

    • Dr. Dubz

      My tax return was most excellent this year too. Congrats, broheim.

      • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

        We owe the omniscient tax overlords. Writing that check and sending that voucher to the nearest IRS processing center is like taking an arrow to the chest.

        • Dr. Dubz

          Bogus. Sorry, HD. You’ll get ’em next time!

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            It’s SE (self employment) tax that does it. We have withholding from W-2s, but with a decent amount of income from 1099’s, we end up paying. I used my bag of tricks and spells to reduce the liability, but not enough,sadly.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Ohhh, I’ve heard of the complexity of taxes for self-employment. Do you enjoy it, though? Does it give you more freedom?

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            My wife is actually the one who is self-employed–she works contractually on an independent basis. I’m a W-2 guy. She really likes the freedom. We could be more vigilant with making estimated payments throughout the year to help with liability at year’s end, but oh well. You pay it one way or another.

          • more beer

            It`s not that hard as long as you keep every receipt for everything business related. I`ve been self employed for 10 years. I do my own taxes. Now a days it`s pretty easy if you use, Turbo Tax you just basically put all of your expenses in it walks you right through the whole process. I have much more freedom now then I ever did with a job where I was punching a clock. Plus I make more working for myself.

          • please tell me you or your wife is a professional gambler

          • God, I’ve always wanted to check that box.

          • Herr Schmitty

            As Ed says, not as glamorous as it sounds. I wasn’t necessarily a full-fledged pro, but I made all my spending money during the first 3 years of college playing internet poker and tourneys at the local dog track.

            The # of hands you need to play per week to be on top of your game and consistently making money is fucking crazy. I got completely burnt out and haven’t played in years.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            It’s not as glamorous as it seems. My dad did it for a while.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            Truth. A lot of pro gamblers live an extremely rough life.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            Haha, no–though I actually kinda was when I was in college. I made some serious skrilla playing 7-card stud and Hold’em.

          • Herr Schmitty

            Me too! I played those and even a little Omaha hi/lo… but my true money game was Hold’em. I never managed to master cash games though; I always made my money as a tournament player.

            Got one of these at my parents’ house still from winning a 165 entry, $45 buy-in hold ’em tourney during college in ’06. The place I used to play is closed now, but had a picture of me looking like a douche hanging on the walls from winning that tourney.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            Nice! I preferred tourney’s as well, though I could adjust my game.e enough to grind it out in cash games and walk away with bucks. Just wasn’t as exciting or as much fun as the tourneys.

            I frequented a few illegal card rooms that ranged from kinda greasy to downright shady as fuck, and played in the dorms on a nightly basis my freshman year. Had lots of fun, and brought in enough cash to survive!

          If it makes you feel better, a majority of my return went right back into paying off student loans.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            You’be been getting a 1098 from the school(s) and deducting the qualified interest paid on those loans, right?

          • Dr. Dubz

            Yup!

  • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

    Good: I managed to go unbeaten through an entire season as Ajax (Champions League and all) on Football Manager.
    Bad: I’ve been unable to access my college profile all week, and all the work for my Media assignment thats in on Monday is not there, so I’ve had to start it all over again. UGH.
    Ugly: My new profile pic. Thanks to Link, the new -coreboy must be appeased with breakdowns and vomit screams (But not from BMTH’s first album plz, let that burn).

    • Maik Beninton

      I’ve only heard BMTH’s latest album.
      Is it that bad?

      • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

        I’m saying this as someone who likes BMTH from Suicide Season (Their second album) onwards (SS is inconsistent, but when its good its damn good, There Is A Hell is a masterpiece and Sempiternal is great), Count Your Blessings is probably THE reason people hate that band so much (Well, among those who didn’t at least give them a chance afterwards at least).
        I will defend most of their material, but not that catastrophe.

        I finished Better Call Saul.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          I did too. I don’t want to spoil anything for our dear community but the season finale was a bit… underwhelming.

          • The Beargod

            Now you done it! You spoiled it from me thoroughly! Now I can’t watch it! I can’t even… Even!

            Lol, naw Bear God I didn’t say anything about the plot or story or anything.

        Beside the obvious Phantasm Ravager I think I’m looking forward to Harbinger down the most. Also can’t recommend It Follows enough, just for the music.

      • Sir Tapir the Based

        Not yet. Soon they will. I’m not excited.

      I actually get ads and mailers from churches now, right in my mailbox.

      • Sir Tapir the Based

        I had mormons visit me this week. They were not as bad as most jehova’s witnesses that have tried to talk to me.

        • Scrimm

          Speak for yourself. My apartments are full of them and they wont stop.

          • Herr Schmitty

            Hehehehe
            I had some (maybe Mormon?) kids stop me on the street in front of my apartment building a few months back. They started the speech: “Sir, we were wondering if we could talk to you about our savior Jesus Christ”

            I cut them off by waving my hand in front of my face:
            “Sorry, I listen to metal and love Satan, I’m not the person you want to talk to.”

            They smiled politely, then scurried off as though I had threatened their lives. That was the reaction I was going for.

          • Shrimp ov Bad Opinions

            Should have pig squealed that out instead.

          • Scrimm

            I did something similar to an elderly man handing out bibles outside my high school way back and I still feel terrible about it, just because he seemed so nice.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Probably a Gideon. Those dudes are the chillest.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah it was. No lie, still bothers me I did that, even though it was just a joke.

          • Vladimir Poutine

            Nice. The more polite and smiling they are, the more likely they are to be Mormon. They also don’t stop. I got accosted by them in a park once while I was wearing a Behemoth shirt, smoking a cigarette, and reading Nietzsche. Some folks can’t take a hint.

          • Herr Schmitty

            You literally could not have been less Mormon at that exact moment!

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            The mormons left when I said that I’m not interested. Jehova people would never do that. They would try and try and annoy me.

          • Stanley

            Get a peep hole put on your front door. Problem solved.

          • Scrimm

            There both pretty bad but these mormons here just keep coming back. The one girl has the creepiest eyes.

        • JWG

          One time while waiting for the bus I was asked if I “had time to talk about faith” by a pair of quite-clearly Mormon girls (strong Germanic features and all). I just told them my bus had arrived and got on the next one – only a minor detour required to get where I was going.

          When I mentioned that via Twitter to a friend/follower that evening it attracted a Mormon missionary who (a) followed us both (b) told me I should have taken the time to listen.

          It was almost as weird as when I used the #TGIF hashtag and was immediately followed by a televangelist.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            I remember one summer when me and my two friends were going to my summer cottage. The other friend quickly visited a store while we waited in the car in a parking lot. Then this old man comes and knocks on the window. He started chatting with us, but after a while he asks out of the blue if we wanted to talk about Jesus. We told no and he left.

          Yeah it won’t be much longer now.

    Bad:Studio time tonight.
    Ugly: Me sans beard.

    • saved the hair, scrapped the beard?

      • Scrimm

        Yep. They would have to offer me a LOT to get me to cut off my hair.

  • Vladimir Poutine

    The Good: New England Metal & Hardcore Fest draws closer, as does my vacation. Work’s fine with keeping me around as long as it takes to find a new job. Got beer to drink and books to read. Game of Thrones coming up. Lots of good shit.

    The Bad: job hunting, my resume … ah, fuck it. Nothing’s really that bad, it’s just normal human annoyances.

    The Ugly: NEMHF’s Sunday lineup. It’ll be a challenge that day to see how much time I can spend at the bar and the merch tables.

    LobsterAttack says hi. He’s been assimilated into Vladimir.

    • I will be on the job hunt in a few weeks. My advice is to write a cover letter for any job you are interested in and tweak your resume towards that opening. This helps get interviews.

      • Vladimir Poutine

        For shizzle. My resume’s relatively unimpressive, but luckily I write well, which makes for easy and flashy cover letters.

    • My advice, make a video resume, use lots of star swipes.

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      I like poutine. It is deliciouss

  • I just bought tix to see Willie Nelson and Sturgill Simpson. That could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how drunk and/or racist the crowd is. Ugly: the sunburn after.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Willie Nelson fans are generally racists?

      • Large country shows attract a lot of douchebags. And David Allen Coe is playing – he’s got his own group of racist-ass biker fans.

      • Herr Schmitty

        I could see it, but my first stereotype for them would be that they love weed, rather than hate non-whites. Could definitely be both, though!

      • CyberneticOrganism

        At least half the crowd will be carrying firearms.

    • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

      At least it aint like a Madness concert in the 80’s, seriously, one support band were almost killed by the mostly skinhead crowd because they were black, despite Madness’ disapproval of skinheads, mostly.

      I like Sturgill Simpson and Willie Nelson.

    anyone seen them on this tour? what can i expect?

    • Stanley

      You can expect old school goodness, Jimmy me lad. Shattered Sun sound terrible though so you’ve got plenty of time to get your drink on.

      • i sampled a few shattered sun songs… FLUSH! and that is good to hear, i’m an oddball who isn’t that into newer Testament material (sorry, W!)

        • Stanley

          I’m not either. I want to be but it’s just not possible. Both Formation and Dark Roots are very hit and miss. Mostly miss.

    • Chuck Billy will air guitar with a light saber.

      Saw Exodus back in 1987, Testament in 1988. That’s some classic stuff.

      All of Les Discrets’ discog is amazing. As with most of Prophecy (Neige-related) material.

  • Da’ good: I knocked out a ton of work this week. Like 12 essays. My eardrum is starting to heal. I’ve got about 50% of the hearing back. I’ve been able to listen to a shit ton of good music this week. I’ve listened to Visigoth’s new album about ten times.
    Da’ bad: I’ve been assigned as the leader of a debate team for my English class. I’m terrified of public speaking and I don’t speak eloquently when stressed.
    Da’ sheeeeeeiiiiiiiiiit: Nothing here this week.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Public speaking, like many other skills in life, takes practice. Do it a couple times and you will be much less fearful.

      • I’ve done it copious times. To be frank, my fear has gotten worse. I have a whole shit ton of anxiety issues as well as alexithymia so I find it very hard to speak to other people if it isn’t through a written medium.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          Interesting. I have also done copious amounts of public speaking, generally to large groups of strangers. I was initially terrified (clammy feet, dry mouth, all that shit) but after a few times my confidence grew immensely.

          Is a debate the same as public speaking for you?

          • It isn’t as bad. Luckily, I managed to pawn off a lot of the speaking by doing essentially all the research. With medication, I’m to a point where I can walk around and generally communicate to small groups without much fear. When speaking to large audiences, I still get terrified. I found that focusing on breathing in a rational pattern takes some of the edge off.

          • Vladimir Poutine

            Focus on breathing, and get your doc to prescribe you some beta blockers. Worked like a charm for me back in the day.

          • Scrimm

            Same

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Have you done a lot of public speaking Scrimm? I’m a little rusty, don’t do it as often as I used to, but, I still got it lol

          • Scrimm

            Yeah I’ve done quite a bit. Had to speak at many parent meetings for the programs I worked in. Not huge groups but usually 150-200 people. Had to do some in the Army too. Doesn’t bother me too much now. Playing music is a different story.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            150 – 200 is a pretty huge group in my mind!

      • oddly, i love public speaking / giving presentations. in college i always offered to do the presentation if my teammates did all the work. worked out noicely!

    Bad: Entirely unmotivated to do homeowork, but that’s what Saturdays are for. Gotta do some Art and some Aerospace Structures and Fluids and ugh

    Ugly: I am never going to graduate. The one class I need that is a prereq for everything isn’t available in the fall. I’d take it over the summer, but I’m waiting to hear back from Internship people, and apparently the Principals of Measurement course I’m taking over the summer is just a tsunami of pointless work, and paired with Dynamics, taking MAE420 (lol) with those two, regardless of internship status, would probably be too much.
