Flush It Friday: Ca$h Rule$ Everything Around E

It’s Friday. Here at the TXXLXT XX HXLL that means one thing and one thing only – it’s Flush It Friday. In what has become a Toilet tradition and weekly mainstay, we come to vent our toxic anger at the sorry state of a depraved world and gather up some good vibes for our weekends of debauchery or dorking around on Dragon Age: Inquisition. I volunteered for this week’s Flush It Friday cause I have things to flush and things to discuss. In the tradition of me, I will talk about some things I have already discussed with the community ad naseum. That’s my style. Beating a horse to death and then just beating it and kicking that fucker over and over. Have you guys heard of Pyrrhon or Swallowing Bile?

BAD: I worked my last day at my second job last weekend (see also, GOOD). In what has become an ongoing drama of employment related stupidity, I stopped working my part time job while facing down real unemployment from my full time job in a month or two. The rumors are true, it’s only a matter of time. See, last year since April, I’ve worked two jobs. My schedule was twelve days on, two days off for two thirds of last year. That’s about one hundred hours every twelve days. I don’t like working that much. I had some professional goals in mind and made it close to the one year I set out to work at job number two. We like to talk about dark and twisty soul-crushing heavy metal, but let’s be real; that schedule had become dark, twisty, and soul-crushing. I made it as long as I could. So, the one job I still have that I am grossly overpaid for is about to go away, too. That’s an even longer and dumber story. I have never been on unemployment before. The whole concept is kind of scary. It’s also kind of exciting. I’m a borderline O.C.D. planning maniac, and I really don’t have a clue what is going to happen.

GOOD: Did you read the BAD? I don’t have to work a soul-crushing twelve days “on” rotation anymore. I hope I never have to again. I am, however, waiting to hear back on my acceptance into a graduate school program. Two more tough years, and if you were paying attention, I’m not exactly sure what I will be doing for money. I feel like having forty-five days off from work would do wonders for me, but that pipe dream won’t last forever. What else? I just got into a romantic relationship that I’m really excited about. I’m going to court in April to (attempt to) clean up some of the record of my… reckless youth. OH SHIT. I am also planning on traveling to New York City in the beginning of June to attend a two day noise and power electronics festival. I’m most stoked about seeing The Body (with special guests), Burial Hex, and Gnaw Their Tongues. I haven’t been to the Big Apple in about eight years. Hopefully I will catch a couple of you flushers out there!

UGLY: I’m thinking of shaving my beard off again. Paleface. 2 balas por cada blanco.

EDWARD’S PICKS OV THE WEEK: The past couple of weeks I have been playing Krieg’s Transient, the sole track from the Primitive Man EP I preordered (out Tuesday! NSFW cover), and Gnarls Barkley’s The Odd Couple extensively. Also of note is Death Karma’s The History of Death and Burial Rituals part 1, which dropped this week and should not be passed up. Call me a bandwagoner if you must, but fuck. Shit is sweet. The whole “less music, more often” thing is going swimmingly. You’re going to keep hearing about it. I also learned (or re-learned, rather) that Krieg has been a band for twenty years this year. Think about that for a moment – holy crap, right? I am playing a lot of other odds and ends, too. A variety of heavy metal, noise, plus I am revisiting a lot of older hip hop tracks: Definitive Jux to Biggie and Nas.

What do you guys have to vent, flush, and rage about? What do you have to celebrate?

Did you guys get the clue that everything I have written for the Toilet prior to this was during that utterly brutal work schedule?

Gravity doesn’t even apply to you.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    I’m about to drive home from work, lol. Catch you lovely people in like twenty five minutes.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I am so, so jealous of you going to that noise fest. I’ve wanted to attend UNSOUND for a long time, but I don’t ever think I’ll get out to one.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I would really like to also attend Summer Scum at some point, but who knows if it will happen. Hell, maybe next summer if I’m not destitute. I’m starting grad school in the fall and am of the age to probably have a kid here pretty soon.

        • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

          A kid you say?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            In a couple years. I want to get my Master’s Degree first.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

    • Väinämöinen

      “Lovely”

  • BAD: I’m currently in the process of doing nü-metal riff ov the week and, srsly, fuck you all.
    GOOD: This is a three day weekend for me. Hail the presidents.

    • Tyree

      That is bad.

    • but… but… people who didn’t submit are safe, yes?

      • Väinämöinen

        I hope so. I am physically unable to take part in something like that.

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          I picked a good one. Please vote for it.

          • Väinämöinen

            I have a feeling that I won’t be voting for anyone.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Vote for me! I like Charles Mingus, Gentle Giant, Camel and Van Der Graaf Generator!

          • Väinämöinen

            No. I will not vote for anyone. Also, those do not matter in the voting.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            Not me! I picked the absolute worst one humanly possible. I already claim victory!

            http://static.fjcdn.com/gifs/Onwards_ff9ef8_3740890.gif

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            It’s riff of the week though, not whiff of the week.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            In this case, same thing!

          • VVayne Brady

            Did you change yours?

          • There’s no way yours is gonna win. You blew your big day, man.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            🙁

          • Tyree

            I’m not voting for any of it. They all lose.

          • be funny if nobody voted.

          • Tyree

            It would be wise if nobody voted.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            If no one voted I would vote myself to the win.

          • Lacertilian

            Of course you …..

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I sure would! I know I could possibly won if everyone decides to support my Riff. If I win I will never submit another riff again.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Are you going to vote for me? I’ll be happy if you do!

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      Aren’t you happy? I’m so happy for Riff Ov The Week this week.

      • Stockhausen

        You, uh…you would. Be. You would be. You would.

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Without revealing it, how was my little flusher?

    • tertius_decimus

      You promised to include all submissions!

    • Akerskronks ov Steele

      Be honest…How many people submitted From this Day?

    • fuck them, not me, right? right?

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Sophia Lauren was one good lookin’ dame.

  • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

    No, tell us more about this Pyrr-hon

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Nordling have you checked out anything from Imperial Triumphant? The song Decibel premiered for their upcoming album Abyssal Gods is so flippin’ good. They share… I think two members with Pyrrhon.

      • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

        I think I did yes, the name sounds familiar. I’ll put it on the “re-visit during the weekend” list with Krieg/Leviathan.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I picked up that Krieg / Leviathan split and play it frequently. I’m kind of a little Krieg fanboy at the moment (as referenced above) but the Leviathan track on there is fuckin’ fresh. I can’t wait for his album in… March. I think March.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            I didn’t really like the first track ,but the second was okay (Leviathan’s new) I need to revisit his old stuff to see if I liked and what.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Ah, you didn’t like “All Tongues Toward”? I dig that one, too. I want to hear both of the premiered tracks in the context of the album, of course. My best albums of the year in 2015 might be all black metal and Napalm Death.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            I dig ATT once the keys come in, but it’s at the end of the song.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I wanna put you up on this band I am listening to now but Dubya said he wanted to do a short writeup about them and I don’t want to steal his thunder.

            DUBYA are you reading this?

          • VVayne Brady

            Don’t steal my thunder, bro. This is my second or third spin through it. Sounding a lot like Gateways to Annihilation Morbid Angel.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            My lips are sealed per your respectable request.

          • well list a bunch of bands that it’s NOT, and we’ll figure it out by process of elimination

      • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

        Jamming IT’s laste year’s album. Tasty

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Goliath? I jam.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I’m going to put on their previous full length (if it readily available) because I haven’t yet…

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            This is a pretty good album.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            It’s interesting. It sounds more like what people thought of when they said this was / is a black metal band (very debatable) but you can tell they have been refining their sound and style more and more. On their new song “Dead Heaven” they sound like Pyrrhon’s cousin. I jam!

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            This is totally jammable.
            Also EOTY is gonna be harder this year than last. Already so many good releases lile this. And so many upcoming. Then there are the possible releases and surprises and the so far unannounced.

            I have been jamming some more electronic music lately. Some really good and AOTY worthy stuff.

  • Scrimm

    Bad: still no luck on the job front
    Good: Guitar improvement is going rather well

    • VVayne Brady

      Man, I really hope the job thing works out for you soon.

      • Scrimm

        I hope it does for several of us.

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      Feel ya on that one. January and February are horrible for job hunting, and quite a few people I know have had their hours cut drastically.

    • tertius_decimus

      Hopefully, you’ll find a good place to work.

      • Scrimm

        I hope we all do.

        • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

          And I

    • Lacertilian

      How long you been playing for dude?

      • Scrimm

        About 26 years. I just never took sitting down and learning technique seriously until recently. I can’t play the shit my brain is coming up with anymore.

        • Lacertilian

          Woah, you must have a decent riff library!
          Unless you’re like me and only record once in a blue moon.

          • Scrimm

            Getting there!

    • Tyree

      I can’t wait for your album to drop Scrimm.

      • Scrimm

        Me either. Other guitar player has one song left to finish and then it’s re amping and vocalsI hinted at a sample prematurely, I was ready to put it out there but some other people balked. I might link the whole track for a few people. I don’t care how rough it sounds now, it’s good for where we’re at in the recording.

        • Tyree

          If you need some one to do artwork for you guys let me know.

    • Keep plugging away on the job thing man. Taylor your resume to each job opening you apply for, that helps get your foot in the door. Cover letters help too.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain
    • Stockhausen

      SMVVCHES

    • Tyree

      So fucking nasty.

    • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

      Loved this band

  • Stockhausen

    Dude, I’m insanely jealous that you get to see GNAW THEIR FRIGGIN’ TONGUES. Enjoy that, and best of luck with work and school opportunities.

    My good: I’m heavily considering joining an adult soccer league. I love the game, I’ve been getting in better shape, and I’ve been wanting to for a long time.
    My bad: I don’t get Monday off, because of professional development that means absolutely nothing for me as a music teacher.
    My ugly: UR MOM LOLOLOLOLOLOL

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Stocky, I may get to see The Body w/ Full of Hell in Minneapolis when they tour together… but Gnaw Their Tongues & Burial Hex?!!?!??!?!

      Thanks about the well wishes. I have a feeling things will work out / I will land on my feet.

    • Tyree

      Come to MDF. They will be there. You can sleep with me.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Tyree making an appearance at APEX VI would be >>>>>>>>>>> x 1,000,000

        • Tyree

          I would love to go.

  • Väinämöinen

    This week has been quite neutral. No bad or good things that stand out. I’ve been on a Kingston Wall kick this week.

    • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

      • Väinämöinen

        You know me homie.

        • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

          There’s supposed some unreleased songs on it too.

          • Väinämöinen

            One of them has been released. It’s a good one.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            I haven’t checked it yet.

      WHOA, this is next level. I can’t believe they didn’t use the girl crawling around like a pretzel at the Ponderosa wedding.

      • VVayne Brady

        The music adds a whole lot to it.

        • Lacertilian

          This is the best thing I have seen all week.

          I’m surprised they didn’t add this bit somehow http://youtu.be/8pvtVdI9f9I?t=13s

          along with the part @Stockhausen:disqus mentioned

          • VVayne Brady

            There are so many scenes where his sociopathy comes out. Would be hard to get them all.

          • Lacertilian

            First time watching them I hated Dennis.
            Then after a few seasons he has become one of the characters I laugh at most, I still despise him but I can appreciate his insecurity.

    Bad: Due to having to go out of state for it, I’m sitting way behind schedule and will spend my weekend staring at screens trying get shit done on time.
    Ugly: I haven’t had enough sleep lately or decent food so I’ve been constantly exhausted.

    Burning through the grind list I was given, Mumakil was kinda cool, Squash Bowels is pretty cool, probably move onto pig destroyer then.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    Good: Black Sabbath 45th anniversary
    Bad: Still no job prospects down here in North Carolina
    Ugly: Fucking Valentines Day!!!!

  • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

    The good: it’s been a pretty chill week, and finally got all my cleaning done.
    The bad: Outside of it getting sorta cold over here, nothing bad so far. Hopefully I’m not jinxing myself. Still haven’t replaced the hat I left in my friend’s car, so going out bare-headed in 22 degree weather sucks.
    The ugly: No calls back on the job hunt, even from the volunteer work I signed up for. *le sigh*………….

    So overall, not bad at all. Jamming out some Atlantean Kodex and figuring out my plans for tonight and the weekend.

    • tertius_decimus

      Seeking for a job is one of the most frustrating experiences. Best wishes!

  • The Bad: entire hospital’s internet has been down today, had trouble keeping up with the site and couldn’t stream the new Sarpanitum.
    The Good: the new Sarpanitum.
    The Ugly: don’t shave Edward!!!

    • Stockhausen

      OH YEAH I ALMOST FORGOT DON’T SHAVE EDWARD.

      • VVayne Brady

        Don’t shave, Edward.

        • Stockhausen

          I was addressing that as you were typing. I think I made myself clear.

          • VVayne Brady

            No one else should shave Edward either!

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Don’t. Shave Edward.

          • Tyree

            Edward don’t shave.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Edward don’t preach.

    • Scrimm

      Yes, no shaving please.

  • Good: tomorrow is my birthday and the celebration begins tonight.
    Bad: tommorrow is Valentine’s Day which makes it only half my birthday. The cost of cards and roses is absurd and I hate this about it. Can we just move this shit to the 15th?
    Ugly: I watched some Amanda Bynes MK Ultra thing the other day and cannot get the image of her doing her hair out my head – bizarre and disturbing all together.

    • VVayne Brady

      Was it as much of a train-wreck as I’d imagine?

      • Just don’t watch is my advice, fuckin’ Disney!

    • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

      You Too?

      • And Scrimm too so 3 of us. Enjoy!

        • Väinämöinen

          Who’s the third?

        • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

          Don’t get me wrong, I referred to Scrimm merely, not myself. I will actually, probably, enjoy morrow, at least partially

  • CyberneticOrganism

    GOOD: It’s Friday and we’re halfway through the worst goddamned month of the year.

    BAD: Work is confusing. Lack of sunshine is killing me. I don’t have enough music or photography time.

    BAD: I’m leaving my daily job. Again. Fourth a year.
    UGLY: misanthropy rises above the mind limits. Arthur Schopenhauer approvingly smiles for me from the sky.
    GOOD: eating my apple. Apple is red. It’s tasty and vitaminy.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    Like mother fucking clockwork, I have returned.

    Also, for the record, if any other metal blogs start slapping corpse paint on celebrities and shit from pop culture just know they copied me and they are posers. That is my shit.

    Toilet Ov Hell >>>>>>>

    • tertius_decimus

      Call your lawyer!

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Only problem is I am still waiting on my Toilet Ov Hell royalty checks to arrive.

        • They’re gonna be pretty hefty. Lotta money to be made in writing about harsh noise.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m working on something now that should be worth a briefcase of cash.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            What about power metal? That should bring in literally tens of cents per year.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            There is a Blind Guardian article on TXXLXT XX HXLL that has over 14,000 views. I think that smashes the second most viewed article to splinters.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Awesome! Which one? Do we know if it picked up steam via another site or facetube sharing, etc?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I think it was because Blind Guardian shared it on their Facebook. They must have a fuckload of “likes” on Facebook and a high percentage of participation. Other than that I am not sure how it spread so widely. The author (Randall Thor) and the editors might have a better idea than me.

            My best viewed article, by comparison, is like 1,700 views.

            Here it is: http://www.toiletovhell.com/power-metal-101-blind-guardian/

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Nice! My highest is maybe 1200, it’s all downhill from there.

        • Tyree

          This show is turning out to be damn good.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            The second episode was even better than the first.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            What is this show even.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Better Call SaulBreaking Bad spinoff.

          • Tyree

            I still have to watch the second episode. It looks intense though.

    • BAXXX BXAXXBXAXX

      Keep it XXXX edbro

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I dunno if you caught it, but because I borrowed your parlance I linked your interview.

        • BAXXX BXAXXBXAXX

          Because of that, I give you freedom to use it at will from now on

  • Mother Shabubu III
  • Good: had a bunch of friends over to hang out and play ps4 for my birthday yesterday, was pretty sweet since I don’t get to see them much.
    Bad: Work is ramping up and it’s kicking my ass. Spending a fuckload for a stupid Valentine’s Day dinner tomorrow night because girlfriend.
    Ugly: My apartment because my girlfriend is the messiest, dirtiest, most disorganized person EVER. Seriously, it’s like living with a 10 year old boy.

    • girlfriends are the worst! (except her…)

    • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

      Except you can show a ten year old boy who the boss is.

  • InfinityOfThoughts

    Good: my girlfriend’s cat is gonna get its teeth fixed. No more stinky cat breath!

    Bad: working 7 days in a row at a job I should have left a year ago

    Ugly: my fucking apartment management people are the fucking worst. If me and my girl had money to move, we would, immediately. At least they haven’t raised the rent.

    • Lacertilian

      Renting fucking sucks eh, I did it for nearly 10 years. The last time we had to move I was distraught and ended up getting a small loan to get the rest of the deposit money to buy a house.
      Now I can plant trees and break walls!

      • BREAK STUFF! (Limp Bizkit reference)

      • InfinityOfThoughts

        I would love to be a home owner. That’s the dream…

        • Same brother.

        • i bought my first home in June. so far, the only difference is it costs more and i have to fix my own stuff.
          having said that, is quite amazebro.

          • InfinityOfThoughts

            I hate the idea of spending money on something I don’t own; a few more years of renting and hopefully I’ll be in a position to buy…probably not where I currently live though because its wicked expensive.

            Of course a mortgage is technically still paying a rent but its all how you look at it.

          • care to share where that is? (understandable if not…)

          • InfinityOfThoughts

            Boston area.

        • Lacertilian

          Oh don’t get me wrong, owing the bank a 30 year mortgage is not what I would call ‘ownership’ but it’s better than paying off someone else’s mortgage(s).

      • Stanley

        I assume that your roof is good working order? 🙂

        • Lacertilian

          Yeah, ours is the old 1980’s ceramic tiles, covered in lichen (I lich it).
          I’ve noticed an old cut down tree stump outside that may or may not be full of termites though.
          Which may or may not be eating our entire house from the inside out.

  • Lacertilian

    The Good: Going out to a mates place tonight for cards, spit roast & drinks.
    The Bad: Some of the guys are starting to pike out because of some shitty Valentines excuse. Fucking weak.
    The Ugly: My house is a mess.

    • VVayne Brady

      Do you an the missus have any plans?

      • Lacertilian

        My plan is to attend the drinking/cards night, as per planned.
        We don’t celebrate Valentines day because I’m a conniving prick.
        Lots of the other guys there are married/engaged and they’re hopefully still going.

        • VVayne Brady

          Cool. That sounds pretty fun. There was a year where my friends and I played poker almost every week. I got pretty good, but I don’t have the spare scratch to do that every week now.

          • Lacertilian

            Yeah same, we only recently started playing again, mostly as an excuse to hang out and get intoxicated.
            They’ll be bringing some Kava from Fiji too and we’ll do the whole ceremony thing. Not that I really notice the difference after copious amounts of ethanol & cannabinoids anyway.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Dude, I love kava. Had it on my honeymoon. Thumbs up.

          • Lacertilian

            In Fiji or somewhere else?
            It kinda numbs your mouth like cocaine, but tastes & looks like dirty water. Fun!

          • CyberneticOrganism

            We had it in Hawaii on the big island. Tasted like a combo of cucumber and soil, then mellowed us out to point where we didn’t give a shit.

          • Lacertilian

            Exactly, the only difference here is I already give very little in terms of shit.
            If there was a negative side past 0 ‘cares’, I’ll be there tonight.

  • BAXXX BXAXXBXAXX

    The good good: passed my certification exam today, first try. Sitting here blasting Underachievers in my work van.

    The bad: gotta work tomorrow, then watch my buddy’s cats because he’s out of town at his dad’s funeral

    The ugly: girl comes into shop today with “whore” scratched into both sides of her car and her windshield smashed out

    • DAMN

    • VVayne Brady

      Jealous ex?

      • That sounds like the work of another woman to me.

        • VVayne Brady

          Well, jealous ex of current boyfriend.

        • BAXXX BXAXXBXAXX

          Me too

      • BAXXX BXAXXBXAXX

        Afraid to ask, she did look a bit like a fornicatress

    • Tyree

      Hahaha! That’s awesome.

    • Lacertilian

      Watching cats?
      That just sounds odd to me for some reason

      • BAXXX BXAXXBXAXX

        We’re very particular about our cats

        • Lacertilian

          From my experience, the cats watch you.

            Ftfy

          • Lacertilian

            I had a feeling that would come out. I couldn’t come up with a pussy joke about being particular with your cats, so I went for a serious observation.
            *hangs head in shame*

          • bro, that’ll change once you get some beer inya

          • Lacertilian

            All I’ve done so far is poo.

    • BerkeleyMan

      Please tell me you have a picture of the car and the girl!

      • BASEDBEARD

        I rly tried to get a picture of the car but the img didn’t come out, sry.

        • BerkeleyMan

          No problem, its a great story!

    • Stanley

      I thought you were already certifiable. Seriously though, what certification did you obtain?

      • BASEDBEARD

        Safelite/Sika Adhesives certification.

        So now I have two active certs, as my SBCA (Satellite and Broadcast Communications Association) cert is still active.

        • Lacertilian

          You gonna start doing some Pirate Radio Broadcasts?

          • BASEDBEARD

            Doubtful, though my voice is deep and soulful

        • Stanley

          Had to look that up. Sounds like you will have a lot of access to glue.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Smells gud. 😉

          • Stanley

            ..

    • you better bring those badass victorian cannons to perforate whoever did that to the car! tell me if you need some Vampire Hunter backup

  • Guacamole Jim

    The Bad: My bus ride literally took me two hours to get home today, for NO REASON AT ALL. Seriously, fuck the transit system here.

    The Good: You chums. I was discussing with our Grand Leader Supreme, Joe Thrashnkill this morning how the Toilet gets me through each and every work day. You guys are the best.

    The Ugly: Haven’t shit yet today. Usually I get the rumbling for some chocolate rain around 9:00 AM, so I’m wondering what’s up. I have a feeling that when it happens, it’s going to be bad.

    • Tyree

      I made the mistake of drinking Rolling Rock last night. I got the runs today.

      • Lacertilian

        I was under the impression that was one of the decent cheaper beers in the USA

        • Tyree

          It is, and I enjoy drinking it but it makes me poop a lot.

          • Lacertilian

            Good to know if I ever make it over the Pacific.
            They don’t sell it here for whatever reason, we get Sierra Nevada though, which is nice.
            People have started importing Budweiser, Coors and selling those little fucking red cups though, I feel sick seeing that shit here. Everyday we become closer to ‘mini-Murica’.

          • Tyree

            Where are you based out of if you don’t mind me asking?

          • Lacertilian

            Sydney, NSW

          • Stanley

            That’s a fine town. Australia has about a million different beers that all taste the same.

          • Lacertilian

            Our mega-swill reached critical mass in the 90’s.
            Craft-beers have finally started to take a decent market share though.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            Ain’t you from ‘STRAYA PERKELE! ?
            You’re in Eurovision now.

          • Lacertilian

            What is Perkele?
            We get Eurovision every year here, some people (crazy-types) have bets and parties based around it.

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            You’re participating in it from now on.
            Perkele is an untranslatable expression of many things Finnish. It’s also a swear word like fuck and an ancient curse.

          • Lacertilian

            Sounds made-up..
            Is it also imaginary?

          • Nordling Writes ov Karhu

            Very.

          • Väinämöinen

            It comes form the name of balitc god. It has been used as a name for a god called Ukko in Funland. After christianity came here it became a synonym for devil as well

          • Why in the hell would you go through the trouble of importing Coors. Don’t get me wrong, I drink the shit out of it but it’s not exactly worthwhile.

          • Tyree

            I once asked a very dumb waitress what she would recommend beer wise. She said “Ummmmmmmm, Coors Light is good”. I said “No I’m not doing that”.

          • You should’ve just asked for a different waitress, haha.

          • Tyree

            She was the worst.

          • Lacertilian

            Exactly my thoughts.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Was she attractive?

          • Lacertilian

            Because we have to be exactly like a stereotypical combination of every teen-movie and video film clip that comes from the USA.
            Our culture is being infected, generations from now even our fucking accents will be the same.

          • *shudder* I sound like a shit kicking redneck. But I guess it could be worse…

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Guh, American teen movie tropes are the fucking worst. I already live next to a house full of bros who try to recreate some awful combination of Neighbors and Animal House every warm weekend.

          • LobsterAttack

            The Coors brewery tour is damn fun if you’re ever in Golden. Otherwise, agreed: not worthwhile.

          • put some Toby Keith on the jukebox, here we go…

    • Confession: I usually only poop every other day, sometimes I go for multiple days without pooping. I’m probably gonna die.

    • yeah, i like everyone here too. a year ago, who would have predicted that a bunch of nice people who care about metal, would come together instead of calling each other f@g and such…

    • FeelTheDarkness

      Fuck all of you!!! BABY METAL RULZ!!!!!!!

  • The bad: I’m working 13 hours in an empty office building today.

    The good: This allows me to listen to a bunch of metal and get paid for it while simultaneously being bored off my ass.

    The ugly: I tried using spotify again for the sake of saving space. It was great for like a week and now it is just pissing me off. How much money do they make and they can’t make a legitimate fucking mobile app? This ends the Archbauer’s experiment with streaming FOREVER.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Damn, really JB? That sucks. I use Spotify Premium in my car (cause my device doesn’t have internet unless I’m on wifi) and it works pretty well…

      • VVayne Brady

        You know me. Saves me a ton of money.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I need to get on that VVayne Brady budget.

      • It was working great for a while and now it wont go to the next song unless I physically press next. I’ve tried uninstalling and what not to no avail. Fuck this shit man. Back to bandcamp/rocket player/foobar2000 .This particular issue is extremely hazardous when I’m driving.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Better to be safe driving. Bandcamp has a pretty strong mobile app which would work great for you because you buy everything.

          • I don’t buy everyth—yea.

          • JWG

            Apple required removal of the ‘buy’ aspect of the band amp app, though, right? So we iPhone users are left to use it as a player for content already purchased.

            They don’t want any competition at all for iTunes, even in genres and sub genres where the overlap in content is minimal at best.

          • Itunes can suck 20 fat ones with their stupid ass file formats and inability to add basic features.

          • Lacertilian

            Just one of the reasons I refuse to be locked into iSlavery.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I was unaware of that. I purchase from my computer but have an iPod Touch, so once I purchase I can stream them when connected to wifi. Thing is I always download and sync up the stuff I buy so it matters little.

          • I just bought a bunch on the bandcamp just now. I hvae an ipod touch but it’s collecting dust. I got annoyed that it always focused on like 6 or 7 of my shit ton of artists.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            On shuffle?

            Man, earlier, as soon as I finished telling you I wanted to reel in my spending on musical purchases I was like shit, I wanna buy more Primitive Man and I should pick up that Diocletian / Weregoat split, lol.

          • Yea on shuffle. I still haven’t heard diocletian, i keep meaning to but then I never do for some reason.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Man, I hate to interject here, but I have been BLASTING Gesundrian lately. Damn good, anti-christian stuff.

          • That’s a Diocletian album I assume?

          • BASEDBEARD

            Yeah. Its #Basedbeard approved.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            The Diocletian / Weregoat split is filthy.

          • I was gonna buy Gesundrian on bandcamp just now but theres no buy option. THanks Obama

        • EsusMoose

          I’ve had that problem today, I found only new playlists are like this and old ones worked fine. I think that was the case, I’ve been on my laptop for almost 2 hours now so phone hasn’t been in use

          • Hmmm I only ever listen to one playlist so I don’t think that’s the issue?

          • EsusMoose

            I’ll do a quick check on my phone

          • EsusMoose

            Yeah I got my newest playlist to have the problem as it’s stuff off bandcamp but other playlists that are older(12+ hours old) don’t seem to have the problem or will get over it

          • I’ve had a bunch of other annoyances with it as well, this was just the last straw.

          • EsusMoose

            I understand I’ve used the app for 2 years now, it has been good and bad

    • Tyree

      I can’t get on on the Spotify train either Jack.

      • I gave it a fair chance multiple times. Fuck it.

      • I feel like foobar2000 has the best audio quality as well.

    • Stanley

      Don’t do Spotify. It’s only one step removed from illegal downloading. And an ant’s step at that.

      • EsusMoose

        I feel there’s already a lot of services and websites that provide a service like it, so the industry itself is moving towards it. Everyone has their opinions, I like it so I can try music and listen to songs from albums have 2-3 songs I like. I buy off bandcamp and purchase vinyl’s when I want an album/support the artist

        • Stanley

          If I want to check something out there are plenty of sites that offer that. e.g. youtube, bandcamp. Then if I like it, I buy it and the artist gets what they worked hard for. Not some 0.000000000000001 cent per play they they receive from Spotify. Sorry, but I know that Spotify is popular and it’s a step in the right direction, but I think the bands get such a bum deal.

          • EsusMoose

            I’m not saying it’s perfect but as I may have said or left out, I do purchase from artists if I like them but as listening to bandcamp gets them nothing if I choose to stream it, and I don’t know youtube’s ad revenue policy, I don’t see a huge difference. If someone chooses to not purchase or see the artists they like then yes it’s bad for the artist. That’s not how I roll or how I hope others roll.

      • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

        I just use Youtube and my Youtube downloader on that end, and get the CD if my budget allows.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      What do you do job-wise?

      • I’m in security as of late.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          You enjoy it? I once worked a job where I had a small but completely empty building all to myself for 3/4 of any given month. It was insanely difficult to work and not just go wandering around wasting time & bouncing a tennis ball off the walls (like in The Shining).

        • BASEDBEARD

          Makes sense.

    • JWG

      I can sympathize.

      Spotify Canada takes on all of Spotify’s flaws and adds on content restrictions akin to the difference between Netflix and Netflix Canada. I think I only got a day worth of use out of it then gave up.

      I wasn’t that invested in the concept, though, I just tried it out because I got a pre-Canadian-launch download code for the software from an artist I like…

    The Bad: My roof’s leaking. The roofer just came over and told me $16,000 (SIXTEEN THOUSAND) to get a new roof.

    The Good: At least it’s not raining and it’s still beer week in SF. I’m going to go out, sink a few and forget about my leaky roof.

    The Ugly: My bank balance.

    • You’re more than welcome to chill in the interrogation room. You may have to try and avoid the drunken mcnulty doing windmills in there though.

    • tertius_decimus

      Not aware what’s the middle ground in pricing but sixteen grand seems like sheer rip-off. It’s not a rocket science, it can be done five or six time cheaper.

      • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

        Shit, my roomy/landlord completely redid this place when he bought it (it was pretty much gutted by the last people who had it) and only spent $500 doing it. And you’d never know unless he told you, it’s that well done.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I know many people who work in home restoration, like when your home is damaged by a storm they knock on your door and try to work it out with your insurance company. Would insurance cover it?

      • I always wondered if people in Tornado alley have some sort of tornado insurance.

        • Lacertilian

          but but but ‘acts of god’ aren’t covered

          • Lacertilian

            implying their god of choice threw a fucking tornado/tsunami/earthquake/flood at them

          • God is a dick, mother nature is a cunt, facts of life.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I believe we / they do.

        • JvRv

          I live in North Alabama and in 2011 (iirc) those big tornadoes came through and jacked everything up real good.
          A strip club down around the way got pummeled to bits. entirely annihilated. So they rebuilt.
          Then it caught on fire and burnt down. So they rebuilt
          Then another wave of tornadoes came through THE SAME PATH as the 2011 ones. No more strip club.
          I was driving by the other day and I think there is a church there now.

          • Stanley

            My experience of the south has been that there are lot of churches and a lot of strip clubs. Let’s see how long this church lasts.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Hopefully not much longer. The bible belt is real.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            Yep, pretty much. It’s a massive military area around here, so yep, plenty of tit bars!

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            The beacon of a fine community gone. RIP, titty bar! *lays down a used bottle of KY jelly in rememberance*

            http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pou_7153.png

      • Stanley

        The roof’s 10 years old. I don’t think State Farm are going to help.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          If a storm came through your area they would!

          Best of luck though. I own a condo, and I have had some headaches as far as stuff I had to fix / pay for, but nothing in that league quite yet.

        • Like a good neighbor, state farm doesn’t care

        • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

          I had the same problem at my place back home, and I had to threaten my landlord with calling the city officials on him before I got anything done. In grand karma, though, his business next door shut down shortly after I left. Last I heard the building is condemned, and rightfully so.

    • Seriously thouhg, 16 grand is pretty steep. Get estimates from some other people. This guy seems like hes trying to rip you off.

      • BASEDBEARD

        It does sound rather expensive, even for a major problem.

        • Stanley

          Contractors in SF are notoriously expensive. Seriously, if any of you know any contractors that are not doing to well, tell them to move to SF.

      • Stanley

        Yep, I definitely want to get more quotes. I found the dude on Yelp. 150 x 5 star reviews.

    • Lacertilian

      Fuck!
      The whole roof is leaking?
      Surely you don’t need to replace the whole lot, are you going to get more quotes?

      • Stanley

        The problem is water. Where the fuck is it coming from? There are no obvious voids. The roofer said the previous dude did a shit job and it wasn’t installed correctly (at least not as perfectly as he would do it). It’s a membrane roof and there are a few soft spots (apparently there should be a better layer of plywood below) but no simple solutions for detecting the exact spot or spots of the penetration. He said that I could get a handy man over to start patching areas but you never know if that’s going to fix it until the next rain and then blah, blah, blah..

        • Lacertilian

          Damn

        • BASEDBEARD

          What you suggested is exactly what I would do. Pull up the shingles and the substrate of the affected area(s), replace the plywood underneath, and then reseal/reshingle it. Bing bang boom.

          • Stanley

            Bing bang boom, 16 grand. 🙂

          • BASEDBEARD

            Maybe a couple hundred dollars at lowes 😉

    • BASEDBEARD

      That sucks, Stan. If you lived near me, I would help you fix it.

      • Stanley

        I’ll pay your airfare! And the fridge is stocked!

  • BASEDBEARD

    This is primarily for Dubya: We discussed, some time back, the pros and cons of Hooters vs BDubs. Today I had to travel to the worst state in the union (South Carolina) for my exam. We ate at Hooters after raping that exam. My wings were well-cooked, though not quite as hot as advertised. Our waitress (and most of the others) were very attractive. She was rubbing up on all three of us. Needless to say, Hooters beat BDubs today.

    The world keeps turning . . .

  • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

    Good: I’m eating KFC
    Bad: N/A

    • Stanley

      Good: N/A
      Bad: I’m eating KFC.

      *FTFY

      • Scrimm

        Exactly what I was going to say.

        • Lacertilian

          I’ve had KFC 3 times this week.
          I have admitted to myself that I have a problem.

          • BASEDBEARD

            You most certainly have a problem.

          • Lacertilian

            The reason it was 3 times is because we didn’t do a proper grocery shop this week, no lunch at work = take-away, my choices are limited to McDonalds, KFC or Hungry Jacks/Burger King.
            I work out in the bush most days and don’t have a kitchen/toilet or anything to utilise.
            *weeps softly*

          • BASEDBEARD

            Of those 3, I might would choose Burger King.

            Is there a gas station with protein bars? You’re trying to GET BIG the wrong way, Lassy.

          • Lacertilian

            Hungry Jacks here is worse than Maccas, it must be better over in the US because I’ve heard lots of people say the same thing.
            I’m a sucker for fried chicken, and potato + gravy.

          • BASEDBEARD

            I honestly have been eating wayyyyy too much fast food at work for lunch lately (because similar situation). There aren’t Hungry Jack’s in this region (that I know of). If you like fried chicken and mashed potatoes, then I heartily invite you to dinner at my place if/when you decide to visit the land of the free/home of the brave.

          • Lacertilian

            I’ve gotta do it one day. Not sure if the wife would be happy spending up big to fly to the US just to end up following me from Toilet-friend to toilet-friends house though.
            She is patient but I do give it a good test sometimes.

          • Stanley

            The grocery shop is the key. When there’s no good food in the fridge, take-aways start to mysteriously turn up on the doorstep.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            I’ve been going to the dollar store since my food card got cut off. Amazingly enough, they have shitloads of good eats and everything’s a buck. Win win!

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            They have good food such as those TGI Fridays potato skin chips I love and a ton of different snack foods and candy.

          • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

            And I can buy a 3 lbs. bag of popcorn, pot stickers, pasta, chips, lobster eggs rolls for a dollar a piece? Hell yeah, baby!

          • Stanley

            Your gastroenterologist would most certainly agree.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I’m so proud of you.

          • Lacertilian

            For eating it or admitting the problem?

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            For eating it. They make some good chicken.

          • Lacertilian

            Most of the time.
            I find it varies from store to store

    • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

      You just broke Taco Bell’s heart!

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        What? I’ve had it four times in the past two weeks.

        • Kim Jong Un’s Turkish Snowcone

          I thought it was for every meal, lol.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    The Bad: 1st Valentine’s day in 9 years that I’m single.
    The Good: 1st Valentine’s day in 9 years that I’m single, meaning I’m in no way obligated to waste money buying useless crap for somebody else. I get to buy useless crap for me and me only.
    The Ugly: The hangover I’ll have the day after V-day, as the useless crap I buy myself will most likely be whiskey and/or beer, of which I will consume mass quantities of.

    Ah, to be a single nipple again. It has it’s moments.

    • Lacertilian

      Being a single nipple is better than being a 3rd nipple (wheel)

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I’m presently in a relationship but honestly I never minded being a third wheel. My bff has been with this woman for awhile and they are almost never apart, so I just got used to hanging out with the two of them.

        • Lacertilian

          My best mate does the same thing with us, he’s pretty cool about it too, but i think we help that fact by not being a super lovey-dovey couple.

          • Stanley

            Same same. By friend hangs out with me and my wife and it’s all fine and dandy. I fell bad for him though as he should be out trying to get laid and not hanging out with us.

  • JvRv

    The Good: Lazy Friday doing laundry and Physics homework. I have my music on shuffle and I am not letting myself song skip so I’m having fun jaming to tunes I havent listened to in a while.
    The Bad: I have classes on President’s Day. Whaaaaaaaat
    In need of FLUSHING: This physics homework sucks nut. I hate when homework is assigned over stuff we havent looked at yet, so I actually have to teach myself. What a mess. I did make a 100 on the test yesterday though!

    • LobsterAttack

      Congrats re physics hw. Whatever it is you’re doing, you’re doing it right. More than I can say for myself with this damn econ class.

      Shuffle’s being awesome on my end too. Last 5 artists: Robert Johnson, Drudkh, Robert Johnson again, Neurosis, Blut Aus Nord. Fuck yeah

        I am almost done with these blasted problems. This angle should be just the complement of the other but apparently not. Flush this garbage.

        my last 5 were Dethklok, Tenacious D, Trivium, Ensiferum, and Katatonia. Not the most TRVE KVLT sequence but its held up so far.

        • LobsterAttack

          Whatever does the job, man. I’d love to know/be able to figure out how the shuffle algorithm works, because it comes up with the weirdest patterns sometimes.

          • JvRv

            AND I AM DONE
            KNEEL BEFORE ME AS I HAVE MASTERED THE WORKINGS OF THE UNIVERSE
            I AM A GOD AMONG INSECTS!
            Kamelot, Slipknot, Demon Hunter, Amon Amarth, and Insomnium on that last 5. Little better.

            But econ classes? yeah Flush that. *pwooosh*

            I remember this song. Its a great song.

          • Lacertilian

            I’ve always enjoyed this track.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OO18F4aKGzQ

          • BASEDBEARD

            I hate this dude.

          • Lacertilian

            I didn’t know anything about him except this track, and for whatever reason I couldn’t get into any of his other tracks.

          • BASEDBEARD

            He really rubs me the wrong way.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus
          • BASEDBEARD

            Was it you who was talking about his rap battle fail with me not too long ago?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I believe so. Dude fell off pretty hard but put out some all time great rap tracks.

          • BASEDBEARD

            The deeper I delve into hip hop over the years, the more demystified with him I become.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Really? Care to elaborate a bit more?

          • BASEDBEARD

            I find that he’s someone with a large vocabulary but with little substance. He repeats the same tropes over and over again, saying he’s some kind of fucking alien or superbeing. And his beats are generally pretty poor.

          • Lacertilian

            The level of discussion on hip-hop on this metal site would put the low-brow chest thumping idiocy on your average hip-hop site to shame.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Oh, his beats have been pretty bad career-wise, but not on Rip The Jacker which is likely his best album. Coincidence? I think not.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Ali is from here, I used to be a pretty big fan of him but I haven’t played him in awhile.

          • Lacertilian

            Where’s here ND?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Oh, Twin Cities, Minnesota. He’s on Rhymesayers also located here.

          • Lacertilian

            Minnesota is a cold state, right?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Indeed, it gets pretty cold here in the winter. Over the last couple years we have had a few very mild winters but other people would still consider them cold.

          • Lacertilian

            Any place where winter is below 18C is what I would consider cold, coming from the sweat crack of the sun.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            You’d consider this cold then. It’s below 0 degrees C from November until sometime in March generally, and remember temps hovering at 0C is warm for our winters.

          • Lacertilian

            Fark, I call it cold if I even have to consider taking a jumper to work.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Currently -2C here

          • Lacertilian

            Frostbeard!

      • Stanley

        Apparently the Best Leader has the best riff. He keeps saying so anyway.

        • If everyone isn’t too TROO to admit that it’s a good riff, I’d say you’ve got a pretty good shot of taking it.

          • Stanley

            Oooh.

    The Bad: bills tend to rise faster than wages.

            That sounds pretty. I can’t at work.

          • KJM

            No work today, but I probably still could anyway depending.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Its just one of those things with me. A little perc wouldn’t do enough to me to worry. My problem is I’d be doing something else.

  • BAD: Everytime I go outside there’s people talking about the dollar problems and I want to escape. This week, the goverment changed the dollar politics again and, to short the chat: if I translate my salary from Bolívares, I gain 1$ or 1.5 $ at day because they regulated the dollar market and centralized very hard because the demand of the dollars in the country. And in march we will have another uprise of the public transport fees because reasons. Flush it! I’m very sad and the people around this city doesn’t help, they only complain and complain everywhere everytime. This shit is kinda depressing. I’m unfollowing and deleting people of my networks, and I’m trying to stay away of the news because this (ironic, because I’m a social communicator…)

    UGLY: I got a weird flu. My throat hurts and I’m producing liters of mucus. I will pass a really sexy valentine’s day.

    GOOD: Since monday and tuesday is day of NO work (carnival festivities; and yes, Venezuela is so stupid that celebrates carnival too) I will leave this shitty city of Maracaibo to visit my hometown. Mrs. Leonhart, Mom and Dad will heal and take care of this poor vampire hunter.
