Flush It Friday: Burnt Edition

The heat is on” – Eddie Murphy [1984].

Friday is/was here! Let’s get down to the usual proceedings as we flush this last week down the gurgler.

Good: Our son smiled at me for the first time ever today.

Bad: I’ve been feeling terrible lately. Worst I’ve been for at least 5 years. I feel like an arsehole because I have a roof over my head, a loving wife, and our first child, but it still sucks feeling so despondent all the time. Depression seems to be drawing me back in to its grip. But I don’t want to bog everyone down with that shit, so I’ll share a trivial anecdote instead.

On Wednesday night I cooked up a quick meal for us, one that required the use of an inconspicuous red chilli. Mrs Lizard doesn’t really enjoy spicy food so we don’t choose overly hot meals. If we ever pick something that requires a tonne of chilli I generally leave it out of the main mix and put some on mine at the end. This particular meal was sesame chicken with chilli & plum sauce, so the chilli was integral and needed to be used from the start. No problem, we don’t buy super hot ones anyway, just regular old red or green chillies. Now I know by now many of you from the USA are getting shitty that I’m not calling them chili, chili pepper, or peppers. Fuck you. Pepper comes from various Piper spp. of plants. The peppers you refer to are the fruit from Capsicum spp. of plants, which tend to be called Capsicums in other parts of the world (we’re weird like that). Chillies are also in this genus, they’re essentially hot little capsicums. But you already know this, your ancestors just chose to obfuscate the terms for a laugh. Anyway, as many of you know, the main compound which gives the hot flavour to these fruits has the common name of capsaicin. You might have accidentally brushed it on your skin after cutting some up, or maybe you’ve been sprayed with it after getting caught at a Trump rally being all not white n’ shit, either way, you know that this stuff can burn your damn face off.

70iiTl

In the past, if I knew I was going to be cutting up a bunch of them I’d put on some gloves. I cook a lot. Complacency is a bitch. I decided to raw-dawg it. Hey! I washed my hands afterwards, I did the right thing. Dinner was quite hot; she barely finished hers. A litre of beer and over an hour later, I brushed my nose. First mistake…face in flames. After enduring about 15 minutes of solid schnoz melt, I decided to blanket the area with some Aloe vera gel crap we have for sunburn. This didn’t really help much, the chemicals had already soaked in, but it kinda smelled nice. So I went back to the bathroom to put on some hand sanitiser with the intention of dissolving/extracting the remaining capsaicin from my hands and then washing them to get rid of it. Cool. Done. While, I’m in here, I may as well use the opportunity to do a piss…

Ugly: SPONTANEOUS DONGBUSTION!

Metal: Resisting the urge to post Inferno again here (even though it’s apt af). Instead, I’ll offer a flame track from a killer Swedish band of Dissection/Sacramentum/Vinterland’s ilk. This 1994 song is the final track off the first of their two albums. You should definitely listen to the whole album while burning through the last hours of this week. It’s 3b693e310b3b71e186070d5f077c30993b693e310b3b71e186070d5f077c30993b693e310b3b71e186070d5f077c30993b693e310b3b71e186070d5f077c30993b693e310b3b71e186070d5f077c3099

So now it’s your turn. Good, bad, ugly, and metal – GO!

    Good: The Dawn track and Hells Headbash in a week.
    Bad: Still at work.
    Ugly: Humans as always.

  • GOOD: Hells Headbash in one week. Also left work early.

    BAD: I’ve been feeling like shit again. I won’t go into details, you’ve heard it all before. It’s really bumming me out. Fuck!

    UGLY: This week. Pretending like I’m well/happy at work. Not being able to eat without feeling like I’m going to vomit. My boss. Life in general. I’m about ready for my permanent dirt nap… Bring on the nothingness.

    • Lacertilian

      Been back to the doc lately?

      • Nope. I’m done throwing my money at them. Trying to get this good GI doctor from Pittsburg. It’s been difficult trying to book him though. Hopefully soon I can get in with him.

        • Lacertilian

          Someone will sort you out dude, keep trying!

        • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

          Good luck, and hope you finally get fully well soon!

  • ME GORAK!!!™

    GOOD: WE CARE A LOT RERELEASE, HYPE FOR SHOWS IN COMING WEEKS!!!!!!!
    BAD: PAINFUL INJURIES!!!!!!

  • Good: got a new car that I fit much better in. I haven’t been so comfortable driving in AGES.

    Bad: I have to work tomorrow wtf

    Ugly: Donald trump calling Hillary a bigot. Jesus talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    • Joaquin Stick

      I’m certain his end game is to kill political humor. Nothing is funny anymore.

      • Mother Shabubu is fucking dead

        I’m still wondering if Hillary hired him to run against her and it backfired when he gained a load of support. So now she told him and his handlers to make him say the dumbest shit. It’s like every time I think he has it in the bag, he opens his mouth and says something even more farfetched and stupid. By November he’ll be saying twice as outrageous stuff so more people jump ships, or vote Hillary out of fear.

        • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

          I don’t think there’s ever a moment he’s had it in the bag. Any idiot under the sun could’ve taken the email scandal and had a slam dunk. Instead, he used it to dig his hole even further by telling Russia they would be “mightily rewarded” if they hack our government emails. I’ve been wondering “who the fuck runs his campaign? Zaphod Beeblebrox?!?” for quite some time.

          • Mother Shabubu is fucking dead

            But there’s another example, he helped her avoid being thrown under the bus with that statement. Adds to my conspiracy. zzzzzzzzzz would be proud.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            Lol, sounds like something Ann “the Baba Yaga” Coulter (pictured below) would say.

            The Republicans were too afraid to attack Trump during the primary process. If they’d had the balls to attack him earlier, he would not have won the nomination. Republicans have allowed the worst among them to set the agenda for 35 years now. If you thought Reagan was a dimwit, you were probably right, but the Republicans have found even more dimwitted candidates over and over again (G.W. Bush, Santorum Palin, Cruz, etc.). Their bench is deep with dummies, and they’re obsessed with maintaining the purity of their doctrine.

            The Democrats aren’t afraid to call Trump an idiot because he IS an idiot.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            Exactly. Though the majority of the Republican party seems to have cut their ties to him (which is saying a lot, considering the verbal and mental gymnastics they’re willing to pull for their own brand, no matter how idiotic).
            In other news, two more signs his campaign is over with (even more so than it already was): He’s now offering what’s more or less amnesty to illegals, which pretty much kills off the only voting block he had left (the anti-immigrant folks and hardline racists). And he has zero campaign stops planned for the rest of the campaign, which is almost certain proof he’s not showing up for the debates and has pretty much given up. This election’s done and over with.

      That’s the pot calling the CorningWare black. I’m not a big fan of Hillary, but I’ve seen no evidence that she’s a bigot, ulnless wanting one orange-faced New Yorker to stay out of the White House somehow qualifies as racism.

      Congrats on the new car.

    • J.R.™

      What kind of car did you get? I’ve been looking at what i’m going to treat myself with when I graduate and get my big boy job

  • Joaquin Stick

    I know the accidental-ball-scratch-after-pepper-chopping blues far too well. Sucks so bad.

    Good: Probably lots of Xboxing this weekend, as nothing else is really going on. Titanfall 2 demo!!
    Bad: Nothing super exciting to look forward to in the next few weeks. Makes it hard to stay motivated. At least September seems to be loaded with good album releases.
    Ugly: The amount of digits still left on my student loans.

    • Lacertilian

      I still can’t fathom how this burned for so fucking long after all the washing and time in between cutting them up and contact. Must have been at least 2 hours + 3 waahes. I know it’s a sensitive area but damn.
      I miss having the free blocks of time to play vidya. Still own a PS3 and a N64 which both gather dust.

      • Joaquin Stick

        Can I trade you some of my free time for cash? I mean, I know that’s what a job is, but I already have one of those.

        • Lacertilian

          I’ll get a loan and get back to you.

      • I play vidya games with my son all the time, but it is not funny because he wants me to play all the games for him and the games suck.

  • I tried making curry this week and it came out aight. My second attempt will be better.

    Good: I’m literally doing 15 min of actual work a day, Office Space style.
    Bad: I am mostly bored with the other 7hrs and 45 minutes of the day.
    Ugly: Nothing, I’m handsome
    Metal: Not metal, but I’ve been jamming the new Aesop Rock all day and it’s tremendous
    http://youtu.be/YZVlSqjjkic

    • Lacertilian

      My fave track from that album!

      • My kids love the video for Kirby.

        • Lacertilian

          I got Joe to watch it last week because that track made me think of Trash Joe the kitten.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    G: Hired the contractors to put this 2nd bathroom into my house today, finally.
    B: still two more fucking weeks till vacation
    U: My bored ass boss(who is the company owner) calling into the office from the airport, on his way back from vacation, for a company conference call at 4pm on a Friday

    • Lacertilian

      Story-time: My mate got a 2nd bathroom put in recently. He and his wife were called and the installers said they were running late, so they had to leave the keys under the door as they both had to work.
      Came home and found no work had been done.
      Rang up to see what the go was.
      Company said they did the job?!
      Turns out they went into their next door neighbours’ house and ripped their bathroom out and installed the new one in there. They must leave their keys under the doormat too.
      Fucking crazy mistake.

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        they did the whole job in one day? that’s crazy. My job has like 5 phases – 1 Framing, 2 Plumbing, 3 electrical, 4 drywall & paint, 5 fixtures(toilet sink shower)

        • Lacertilian

          Most of my mates have trades so he had gotten all them in to do the demo, rebuild, plumbing and electrical already, these dudes were fitting all the fiddly shit and cabinets etc. He runs a carpentey business and was prepared to pay someone else to do the shit work.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            sounds like a busy day in that house

          • Lacertilian

            All the main/mate work was done over a few weekends with beers. They have 2 bathrooms so it wasn’t a rush. I don’t think their neighbours have that luxury though.

        • Where step 6? The step where you drink beer and watch your wage slaves?

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            that’s 1-5

        • Abradolf Lincler

          this was my thought. doesnt even leave time for anything to set. maybe shits different across the ocean

          • Lacertilian

            You guys are misinterpreting the story. As I explained below, the installers were coming to do the fix-out and install the fittings. The main plumbing and electrical work was already done.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            thanks, obama

          • Lacertilian

            ..

      • Joaquin Stick

        That’s amazing. I would love to be a fly on the wall watching those events unfold. It’s like a reverse robbery. How do you react to that?

        • Lacertilian

          Pretty sure someone got the sack. Costly fuck up.
          There’s no way they could match the original bathroom as it was from the 1980’s.

      • Abradolf Lincler

        loooooool oh man. weve had a couple guys put windshields in the wrong car

        sux but also hilarious

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: I’ve been losing weight, got paid yesterday

    Bad: I’d rather not get into it.

    Ugly: nothing.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      this is a better than average jjd friday roundup

    • Waynecro

      Congrats on the weight loss!

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I’m down to 287.

        • Waynecro

          That’s great, dude! Keep up the good work!

          • Abradolf Lincler

            seconded. getting closer to me jjd!

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            And closer to me (145 lbs)! :-p

      Congrats!

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    when I was in 10th grade one of our classes went on a 5 day hike in the green mountains, and I brought some hot sauce called Daves Inferno, and while passing it around the dinner campfire one night, this girl in the class managed to get some of it in her eyes, and one of the teachers had to carry her off the mountain to town to find a doctor. It was pretty hilarious for everyone but those two.

    • Howard Dean

      Was it this stuff? Also, what mountains did you hike (Camel’s Hump, Mansfield, Killington?)

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        Yes sir. The hike was near Stratton, I was so stoned the whole time I don’t re,ember precisely

  • Howard Dean

    Bad/Ugly: I’ve gotta stop eating every delicious thing I come in contact with. Food is fucking awesome, but if I maintain my recent binge I’ll probably become a certifiable fat fuck within a few months.

    Good: Realizing I’m picking up some bad eating habits before I become James Gandolfini.

    • tigeraid

      Resist. RESIIIIIST. Find things that are good for you that are ALSO tasty! Believe it or not, they exist. When I started my diet I was shocked to discover this.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      being fat doesnt mean you cant also be powerful

      • Howard Dean

        I’d just prefer to curb the eating and mitigate the weight gain before our happens.

  • Waynecro

    Good: It’s National Dog Day!
    Bad: Someone ran over a cute little bunny in the street in front of my house, which bums me out because I like cute little bunnies. I decided to scoop the poor little guy up and throw him away. As I scooped him up with a trash bag, I realized I was disposing of his body in the same way I dispose of dog crap. “The first unborn. Perhaps the son of god, aborted and tossed in a garbage bag. Life is black comedy, slapstick and vulgarity, unworthy of the name.”
    Ugly: There was a big spider in my garage gym. It was so big that I thought it was a lizard. I killed the motherfucker, but I still think I might have to move.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      you’ll move because of a spider, but not because of your ex wife?

      • Waynecro

        Touché.

    • JWEG

      Fire. Fire cleanses everything (even Spiders, most of the time). Just be sure you move all your stuff out before you light it up.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      i found out the recycling center here accepts dead animals for a fee

      • Waynecro

        If I knew taxidermy, I could have turned the dead bunny into my new friend.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          then i wouldnt hang out at your house/10

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, I definitely deserve that.

        • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

          Sort of a Weekend At Bernie’s thing, but with bunnies. Weekend At Bunny’s!

  • JWEG

    My Good, Bad, and Ugly will have to be postponed to next week due to indifference to non-musical goings-on. On that note though a big bit of good is the announcement of a new band featuring former Agalloch members plus one former of Giant Squid. I am way intrigued.

    Anyway. On to the last category. Sort of…

    Metal(?):

    In an earlier Flush Day (maybe last week even) I mentioned having expanded my bandcamp wishlist through the “doom”, “stoner”, and “sludge” genres on Metal Archives, limited to bands from my region (basically Cascadia) and either active or only-recently (year or so) defunct (including “unknown” with album out in the last 2 years).

    I decided to expand even further by adding bands from Canada (not just BC), Oregon (Portland and area) and Washington based on inclusion in one of those three (sorry, four – I counted Portland’s two only once) Doomed & Stoned compilations. This meant a lot of stuff that is metal-adjacent but that the Cultural Gatekeepers at Encyclopedia Metallum declared not fit for inclusion.

    Here’s the only recent(ish) one that I’ve since purchased that got a nod from E-M:

    https://strangebroue.bandcamp.com/album/strange-broue

    And here’s one that didn’t:

    https://switchingyard.bandcamp.com/album/yet-again

    And two other not-metal-enough bands I drew from the Canadian comp that I like based on listening to a track here and there. E-M is right, though. It’s not metal. But I dig:

    https://thebluestones.bandcamp.com/

    https://wehuntbuffalo.bandcamp.com/

    • Lacertilian

      Listening to Strange Bro now. This is pretty weedian

    • Abradolf Lincler

      still praying for a new Gris album. dont you have any sway with them up there? 🙁

  • Zeke

    Good- Yesterday I convinced my wife that my two-week old kid likes black metal.
    Good- when we were in the car today I put on darkthrone and she didn’t harass me to turn it off because she thinks the kid likes it.
    Bad- when I showed her that the kid was listening to burzum yesterday and not freaking out, she told me that she couldn’t believe I was making a baby listen to “death metal”

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Used to get face-burn’s from chilli all the time, ’cause I’m careless and all. It ended a couple of years back under very similar stars.

  • tigeraid

    That meal looks fuckin’ tasty.

    The Good: Five FUCKING days to vacation.

    The Bad: As I approach my 36th birthday I’m caring less and less about job, internet, friends and business, and thinking more and more about disappearing into the Canadian wilderness for the rest of my life.

    The Ugly: FIVE fucking days to vacation.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    looking forward to using some of this new land to plant PEPPERS next season.

    Good: payday, i was broke. im now on the hunt for my battle jacket jacket. bunch of good shows coming up.

    Bad: i have 9 fucking jobs scheduled tomorrow. on a fucking saturday. hooray for another 60 hr work week, thanks to some big wigs being down from ohio.

    Ugly: it was 80/58F all last week. super comfortable at night. its nearly 90F today. FUCK.

        • Lacertilian

          I’ve had trouble getting Capsicums to the fruiting stage. I think my climate is not very suitable and I can’t be bothered creating a microclimate for them when they’re not too expensive anyway. No problems with chillies though, weird.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            that is strange? it is hot and arid there? perhaps the soil composition is to blame.

          • Lacertilian

            They germinate readily but never get taller than 50cm.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            some species are very short but, youre right, that is stunted.

            it has to be the soil. thats just kinda crazy, its a hardy plant when it comes to water

          • Lacertilian

            I’m not overly fussed because I’ve been quite successful at growing basically everything else considering the minimal amount of effort I put in.
            How much extra land do you have now?

          • Abradolf Lincler

            we now have an acre of maybe 5-10`, WSW facing property ( i posted a pic last week).

          • Abradolf Lincler

            meaning, even in the mountains, our entire back yard is full sun, loam and clay soil, all year round. the old lady that lived here before us grew grapes as well

          • Lacertilian

            You know what to do grow.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            man, haywood county is a place ravaged by meth. not safe to grow here. we also have close neighbors

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i am < 1km from the local police department 😉

          • more beer

            Grow indoors!

  • Mother Shabubu is fucking dead

    GOOD: The way the lizard’s food looks. Submitting an application tomorroww. Might not be a high end job, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction for more $$$. Soooo many bands coming out with new albums (DTP, ‘Shug, Car Bomb, Candiria, Nathrakh, Coma Cluster Void).

    BAD: Speaking of burning things, I need advice on how not to burn money. I’ve realized years of being a recluse has made me put on a weird persona when around people IRL or even online now that must stem from social anxiety, or some weird defect.

    UGLY: Soooo many bands coming out with new albums my wallet is getting crippled. Also; when an author kills off one of your favorite characters after building hype <<<<.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      candiria will never be the same 🙁

      • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

        Candiria’s new video just came out today, and it’s purdy good.

        • more beer

          It is certainly sounds like a Candiria song.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            First time I’ve ever heard them or heard of them, actually. Might have to check out their other stuff this weekend.

          • more beer

            They have been around for a long time.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            So I’ve heard. Lol, at first I thought they named themselves after those little fish in the Amazon that swim up people’s pee holes.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8AY7qI3N1U

    • Lacertilian

      I think a lot of people can relate to your Bad section.

      • Mother Shabubu is fucking dead

        The money burning thing? Or the wearing a mask thing?

        • Lacertilian

          Oh, I conflated the two. Sorry, I thought you meant your anxiety made you spend more money when out with friends.

  • Good: Going to be taking some vacation time next week and heading to Florida. Got a 2DS so I could play Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, which is ten times better than Pokemon Go by virtue of being deeper than a thimble.

    Bad: The office is adopting a new ERP, which, as an IT member I am supposed to work on integrating it into the rest of our business process. I am not looking forward to this.

    Ugly: So much so, in fact, that I can’t pay attention in meetings and thus can’t retain any important information and my anxiety is flaring up and God damn I need this vacation.

      i got friends who are real into traditional Pokemons and still dig it tho. so who knows

      • I was real into it along with everyone else when it launched, but the lack of substance just made me lose interest after a few weeks.

      Speaking of beer. The next Black Sky beer I am going to get you goes on sale on Sunday. Very limited, I think he said there are only 250 bottles of it.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Dang dude! What do you want in return?

        • more beer

          Some of those 11’s.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            That’s it dude?

          • more beer

            Send a six pack of them if it is possible. I wanttt the bottle for my collection more than anything else. I can’t get those anywhere around here.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I’ll do half and half with these.

          • more beer

            Hell yea those look delicious. I will head to Black Sky on Wednesday after I get paid. I was there last night for Sacrificial Slaughter and Master. They just came out with a killer nitro milk stout. But that is only on tap.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Nice! How was the show?

          • more beer

            It was a lot of fun. Work today wasn’t so fun though after drinking a bunch of different beers.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Haha! I bet. I had some homebrews last night that were pretty good.

          • more beer

            I mixed up the beers I was drinking last night. I don’t usually do that. But they had a bunch of new beers to try out. They also did a Sacrificial Slaughter Blood Red IPA which was very good. They were pretty stoked to have a beer named after them.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Oh, man. That sounds bad ass!

          • more beer

            Most of their beers are named after bands in some way.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            That’s what I’d do.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Wait, I know what else to get you.

  • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

    Good: Another chill week, and digging the Aetherian I saw on here earlier in the week (swinging between that and a seemingly endless Infected Mushroom binge).

    Kinda sorta bad but not really: We got rid of the pit bull after only two weeks. Constantly pissing in the house even after taking her out constantly was part of it, but she also bit my roomie’s kid’s hand and dragged her. Thankfully she didn’t bite hard and seemed like she was unwittingly playing around, but that was the last straw. Got her a new home/owner and it’s been much more quiet.

    The WTF: You know things are bad when getting stuck in a public toilet that’s only flushed once a year while trying to retrieve your friend’s phone is the least of your bad decisions (with photos of the idiot trapped in the toilet and his other horrible life decisions).

  • The Mighty Thorange

    Good: Went through to Edinburgh to see some friends. Had a good time catching up with folks and enjoying good beer. It has also been about 20 degrees celcius here for two days in a row so I can enjoy the outdoors!
    Bad: The pipe for the sink in the bathroom broke in two rendering it inoperable until it gets fixed. Until then, got to make do with the kitchen sink. Not a huge problem but a pain in the arse nonetheless.
    Ugly: The inside of the pipe for the sink.
    Metal: Here is a local band called Blackened Ritual from where I stay in Perth (in Scotland, not Australia). Awesome thrash metal band who have riffs for days.

  • Bad: Our AC died. The sun is setting and it is still 90 degrees inside. The portable AC unit provided by my landlords is scaring the piss out of our cats. Plus I can’t find the FKN Roku remote. If I can’t mainline Netflix via Roku, how am I to distract myself from this heat and the ominous whir of the portable AC unit?

    Good: (uh…pass?)

    Ugly: (what’d you put?)
