It is Friday. Let us commence the weekly tradition.

Hello friends. I don’t really have much for you today because I am absolutely slammed between work, household animals, and preparing all the sweet Patreon loot for this August. Brenocide and I worked late into the night recording an extremely entertaining bonus episode of the podcast, and the monthly mixtape is a total fucking burner. If you’re an official Flusher you can expect to get your digital rewards next week. I’m shipping the mixtapes your way next week too, just give it a few days for delivery. The deadline to get in on the physical mixtape is Monday so don’t miss out if you wanna shred in your Oldsmobile.

OK, I’m way behind so I’m gonna get back to dubbing some tapes. You guys share your tales of triumph and your stories of bitter defeat below. We’ll see you tomorrow.

  • Goodly: Vacation starting tomorrow! Michigan hoooooooo! Family time, gonna be great.
    Good-too: Quit reading/listening/consuming news about 2 weeks ago. Life is great again. You should give it a try! You will not believe what you do not miss!

    You all have a great week/weekend and try to behave yourselves!

          • more beer

            Nope this is all done out in public.

    • enjoy vacay! i used to not read the nooz, and i was definitely in a better mood. but i simply cannot ignore what Anthony Scaramucci is up to, it’s better than a scripted TV drama

      • Hans

        Scaramucci, Scaramucci, will he do the fandango?

        How often has that joke been made?

        • as far as i’m concerned, you are the first and the last one to do it. and if i hear anyone else attempt, i’ll shush him or her and say “Hans did it already. now sleep*” (* like from Dark City)

          • Lone Biker of the Apocalypse

            Now I need to find my old VHS copy of Dark City! I always think of that Luddite Clone ep where, at 4:28, you hear a creepy kid say “kill him…” which is a soundclip from that movie. I always think of that CD when I think of Dark City.

        • KJM, Anla’Shok

          A LOT

      • KJM, Anla’Shok
        • Scaramucci reminds me of Miscavige

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            Hail Xenu.

        • more beer

          Sessions is the one who really needs to be gone.

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            Bigtime.

        • Óðinn

          Trump may keep firing people, but the real problem is Trump himself and the crimes that he and his cronies committed by colluding with Russia.

          • KJM, Anla’Shok

            I really didn’t need to picture Bannon sucking his own dick.

          • Óðinn

            Gah! Me neither.

  • JWG

    Doing thangs, or Conductin’ thangs?

  • Freedom Jew

    Good: Who hasn’t died on the Dallas North Tollway in his first three weeks of driving back and forth? This guy.
    Gooder: My new job is still awesome and gets more awesome with each day.
    Goodest: Gut Shabbos, youse guys.

  • Jeff Manteiga

    G: The Gilmour / Pink Floyd influence in the track “Ripped from the Void” on the new Contrarian that came out today. Helluva track, that one. Also McCain “cvcking” Trump on live television.

    B: The feeling of poring over my Bandcamp wishlist, trying to decide what to trim and what to keep for later listening. Wondering if I’m getting rid of albums I might love if I had more time.

    U: Some dumbass in an Escalade that had apparently never learned to park rammed my siqqqq Honda Civic in the ass a few weeks ago. I’m lazy and didn’t bring it in for an estimate yet. Is there a time limit on shit like that? I got the person’s number and insurance agent’s number as well…how fast do I need to act?? HALP

    • Joaquin Stick

      I got hail damage, forgot to bring it in for like 9 months and didn’t have any insurance issues. Maybe I just got lucky though.

    • You ought best get that taken care of quick, bud!

      • Jeff Manteiga

        Worst part is, I literally walked out of this Misono sushi place and saw the SUV just…slowly…ram into my parked vehicle. She almost hit another car while parking farther down the lot too!

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: got paid, seeing Dweezil Zappa tonight, I’m doing a 10th Anniversary performance/re-recording of my first album ever New Wave Massacre

    Bad: I have to work next Friday so I can’t see Arsonists Get All The Girls.

    Ugly: none

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      I’ve seen Dweezil before. He was quite alright.

  • Hans

    Good:
    Siberian Meat Grinder are playing here next month, and I already have a ticket for Disillusion in September. FUCK. YEAH.

    Bad:
    Still haven’t donated to this here Toilet on that there Patreon. For shame.

    Shipping Cost Good: Get Pissed Stay Pissed Records
    Ordered the Strike Master album for $5. Shipping was $13,50 according to the envelope. Still only paid $5, and got a free CD tossed in, too. Probably not sound business practice, but I ain’t complaining.

    Shipping Cost Bad: Viscera///’s Bigcartel shop
    Not sure when I crushed so hard on a band the last time, so I thought I’d buy the first two albums on vinyl. Shipping alone would have been €40. Nay I say.

    Not sure about category yet:
    Bought a fancy-looking used stereo yesterday. CD, vinyl, tape, radio, the works. Even a USB port, but I haven’t tried that yet. Fabrication’s a bit shoddy and the turntable had no mat, but the sound seems okay.
    Oh, see that slit behind the turntable? It actually pokes out a little bit there. Seems weird.

  • Señor Jefe El Rossover

    Good: Going to see Blue Öyster Cult tomorrow, Mothership is opening. Win, win.

          BIOTECH!!!!!! IS!!!!!! GODZILLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      Blue Öyster Cult >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        Should be fun!

    • JWG

      Would like a report of how much of a range in “their” material the current BOC iteration goes through. I imagine more of the later album content than earlier would seem more “authentic” somehow, but also figure the typical nostalgia-driven audience just wants to hear the old old stuff over and over.

      Honestly, I’d love either, but I’ve developed major appreciation for their last-recorded album in recent years. I just wish I could actually find a reasonably-priced copy outside that career-spanning compilation I really can’t afford.

    • KJM, Anla’Shok

      Nice! Seen BOC a couple times including the week Alan Lanier passed.

    • Mothership >>>>

      Saw them open for Intronaut awhile back, they killed it.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        Yeah, they rule. This is my second time seeing them. Even better this time

    G: Finally got out to the movie theatre last weekend. Very limited choices. Am waiting until everyone I know says I should go see Dunkirk because until then I don’t want to even marginally support the career change of that kid from Now Directionless.

    Hadn’t seen Wonder Woman yet, despite earlier attempts to get to it. So I thought that instead…

    B/U: I had a choice of waiting for three more hours once I got downtown to see it in 2D or go for 3D. I know most people would think that the other way around would make it a conundrum, but for me, I’d far rather 2D because I just don’t like how unnecessarily fucking dark modern 3D technology seems (I already have tinted glasses I have to wear under the 3D goggles just to be able to see things). It works for some films, but DC films are already stupidly darkened. It’s a far far cry from the DCAU vibrant colours even with heavy duty thematically dark storylines.

    Fortunately the film only goes for the oppressive darkness in that last BOSS BATTEL! chapter.

    And that’s to say nothing of how blurry everything but the popped out 3D bits look. If that turns out to be deliberate it’s a terrible fucking waste of High Definition technology. I’d rather be able to see everything that’s ‘nearby’ clearly, just like I do naturally (as long as I’m wearing my glasses). Not “I know that’s a horse just five feet behind the focal point, but it looks like a brown blur with a greyish blur (the rider) on top of it”.

    Oh, but at least the Blu Ray is out soon, so unless I go back and see it in 2D in theatre this weekend (I might) it’s not going to be a long wait. I now know the general plot points, but maybe I’ll get more enjoyment out of actually being able to see the whole thing better, even so…

    • Jeremy Riegel

      Dunkirk > Wonder Woman, and not just because there’s no bullshit 3D (saw it in IMAX 70mm, and it’s worth it). Also, Now Directionless isn’t in it that much, and the movie has so little dialogue that he’s not given the chance to be annoying anyway. You do, however, get a lot of Tom Hardy being a badass fighter pilot.

  • KJM, Anla’Shok

    Time to tear the roof off , my peoples.

    GOOD:
    Nothing in particular. Just, train rolls on.
    Oh, and metal. Metal’s definitely pretty good sometimes.

    BAD:
    That Mayhem hate party of the previous article hit me right in the feels. *sniff*
    New Leprous is shaping up to be complete ass.
    New Wintersun.

    UGLY:
    Some bodybuilder over here had a roid rage and stabbed up his ex-girlfriend, grandparents and some photographer. Fucking hell.

    Here’s some metal

      MAYBE NEW LEPROUS GONNA BE ACQUIRED TASTE????? HUEHUEHUE
      https://youtu.be/S-sj2BpBiQY

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        While I still swear by Bilateral, I could stomach Coal and The Congregation (though I wasn’t really 100% fond of these two albums either); but this new stuff is just…it literally grates my ears.

    • Hans

      Some dude over here started stabbing people in a supermarket today. Seems rather en vogue lately.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Yeah, sadly enough there seems to be some kind of stabbing hype going on these days.
        The sad thing is, that dude made some 30-minute long “farewell” video, whining that he’s going to commit suicide…but then he decides to stab up his ex-girlfriend and her grandparents instead. Having suicidal thoughts is terrible, but it’s obvious that in this guy’s case it was just one big pissbaby cry for attention while he was planning to kill others all along. So in this case there’s only one possible message for that turd:

  • Tales of Triumph: going to a county fair / demolition derby tonight with a lovely lady. picked up Bloodborne ’cause $20.
    Tales of Defeat: i have not yet git’d gud. there are piles of my entrails and stains of blood all over Central Yharnam.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      Bloodborne >>>>>>>>>

      Don’t worry. Keep at it and you’ll be massacring monsters in no time

  • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

    Bad: Leaky bath tub spout

    Good: Changing a Moen 1222 cartridge was surprisingly easy

    Ugly: Caulk residue

  • Max

    UGLY: Walked into a glass door last night, thinking it was the opened part. Got a swollen nose and lucky I’m not missing a tooth.

    BAD: Drank too much, hence the clumsiness and bad spatial judgement. Haven’t had any sleep, either.

    GOOD: It was actually a fun night despite all that; celebrating a friend/bandmate’s birthday.

    • more beer

      We have all done shit like that Max. Cheers!

  • Taylor

    Good: I was able to get out for a fun day hike and finally had a chance to relax.

    Bad: I promised I’d drive out to visit some family, forgot, and now I’m working too many days for anything more than a two day visit. On the bright side it is a 5-5.5 hour trip, so I’ll get to jam some tunes on the way.

    Ugly: ‘Tis the season for the store I work at to begin getting holiday shipments. I’ve been unpacking holiday themed items all night and I now have Christmas carols stuck in my head.

  • Óðinn

    UGLY: The United States is a kakistocracy.
