Flush It Friday: Down With the Sickness

Every Friday afternoon we come together to scream out the bad vibes and replace them with some good lovin’. This is Flush It Friday.

I’m a man who prides himself on his commitment to fitness and proper nutrition. If you work out and eat right you’ll be able to keep yourself happy and healthy! So why the FUCK am I SICK. AGAIN. If you’ll recall, less than a month ago I came down with a nasty ass case of strep throat. I lost a bunch of weight and watched a few seasons of Friday Night Lights because I am a teenage girl stuck in the mid 2000s. It sucked. There are a number of things at work here: the weather all across the US is a frozen hellscape, everyone around me is a mucus projectile launcher, booze is delicious, I have terrible karma, and when I last recovered I left behind two unwatched seasons of Friday Night Lights. This sickness was inevitable. But still, FLUSH IT.

ON A POSITIVE NOTE:

Look at this fucking video of Bao Bao the panda playing in the snow. Where you and I look at frozen precipitation with equal parts piss and vinegar and dread, this panda is having the best time in the entire world. “THE SNOW PROVIDES AMPLE OPPORTUNITY FOR FROLIC. I AM A PANDA.” We should be more like Bao Bao. Yay Bao Bao. Day Bao Bao.

 

The weekend starts now, friends. Feel free to vent your rage below but be sure to follow it up with some positivity. Otherwise, this is an open swim. The floor is yours.

  • This has been a massively weak ass day. Upside: Koalas with mittens with koalas on them.

    • Napalm death, sylosis, deivos, exhumed. Definitely not a weak day for metal. But this weather can go fuck itself. I think I may also be getting sick. But it’s been 4 years since I was sick so I suppose im due. Hope it’s not the flu.

      • Wrath of God

        The New Sylosis kicks major ass just as expected.

        • Yea man, easily their best. Even the ballad at the end is great!

        • Ignatius the Wizened

          God’s taste in tunes not good at all,
          His library in need of overhaul.
          Of goats and blood he needeth more,
          His tuneage ravaged with metalcore.

          • Wrath of God

            Ignatius is good at rhymes that may be so,
            But I just stubbed my big toe.
            I may not be great at rhymes but I’m better than most,
            So I’m gonna end this poem with toast.

          • I had to downvote you for calling sylosis metalcore. Nothing personal

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        May your death be swift and severe.

      Those vocals are gnarly dude! This is just a filthy mess of carnage and hate; I’m digging it.

      These guys have a lot of demos, and that’s it. Damn! Are this guys doing any other shit that is worth checking out?

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Just get the comp, History. I got my copy from an ex-member. I believe they are still available from Moribund Records website. It’s limited to 3000. The main dude, died of a drug overdose in 2006. The band is dead buried.

        • Tyree

          Yeah, I saw that they are not a band any more. Shit man.

          I’ll check out the website later on. Thanks.

    • This is new to me. Pretty savage, dude. Thanks.

  • Tyree

    Playing blast beats and drinking copious amounts of beer is proper nutrition and fitness right?

    • Also, Cretin.

      GL

    • I’m looking forward to your drunken posts on Facebook tonight lol

    • Does a body good!

    • all Joe King aside, i’m starting to believe that a heavy and consistent intake of alcohol keeps germs at bay. i think i’ve been sick (enough to call in to work) once in 2014…

      • Tyree

        Yup, I have not been sick once this year. I have had hangovers consistently though.

      • I’m with you on the booze thing. I’m concerned it’s beginning to bite me in the ass though.

        • Guacamole Jim

          Damn that hit close to home.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        I’ve been sick a couple times, and I left my second job once because I threw up, but I didn’t call in sick once in 2014 that I can recall.

    • Renan Ribeiro

      Fitness, yes. But you need to complement those beers with pizzaburgers to get the nutrition you need

      • Tyree

        That should’t be too difficult.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Don’t forget to offset the vitamins from the pizzaburgers with ramenburgers

    • KJM

      Good cardio.

    • more beer

      You only need to add some thc to finish the food pyramid.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eSN8Cwit_s yeah get the good vibes going.

        Happy, enjoyable and such things, birthday for you, in case I won’t be around to congratulate you then.

        • YourLogicIsFlushed

          You will me man, in fact I bet we haven’t seen the last Porcelain Throne from you.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            Could be 😉 I have a few bands I bet not many around here know

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        Happy Birthday!

  • Edward #negrodMMXV

    We went over this earlier, but I almost gave notice to my second job today until my roommate skillfully talked me off the ledge and reminded me of my employment and financial situations. I am glad he did but I have to work job #2 this weekend and I’m not thrilled about it. I was also hoping to be laid off from my main job come the first of the year and that didn’t happen. Adulthood can be pretty whack sometimes. I do get to take off two Fridays though, one in two weeks and one in four weeks.

    On a positive note I have almost three full hours before this chick picks me up for a date, so I have plenty of time to coffee, get ready, and easily watch at least one episode of Orange is the New Black, and possibly get into some sinister tunes I have been putting off. Something short, like Miscreant.

    • Sinister tunes >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> adulthood

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        No doubt JB. No doubt.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Make sure when you cum, you yell, I AM KING SHIT OF FUCK MOUNTAIN!

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        call me KSOFM, sweetheart.

      • Rofl

      • Ignatius the Wizened

        I am unholy, the King, of Shit I rule,
        In your loins I’ve buried my prodigious tool.
        Take it all and don’t act dumb,
        Great Flood it’ll be when I cum.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Best one yet.

        • KJM

          You are the Poet Laureate Ov The Toilet.

    • YourLogicIsFlushed

      I love to coffee.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        I stopped putting drink in front of there. Coffee is just what I do.

    • It’s kinda odd that you keep hoping to get laid off. You can easily lay yourself off if you want.

      • Yea but then he doesn’t get unemployment.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        JB hit the nail on the head there. Getting laid off versus quitting is worth about $9,200 over a six and a half month period, or until I get something comparable.

        EDIT: My younger brother did in fact get laid off. He’s going to draw unemployment and he already drove across the country and back. Me? I’m just saving money.

    • Renan Ribeiro

      Good luck with your date, brother.

      • worry not, for if it goes south he’s got liek 10 other girls lined up…

        • Edward #negrodMMXV

          Haha, the current pool not that large. This shit is a grind on top of my grind. I just wanna do metal blogs and play the new videogame I have barely played.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        Thanks Renan.

    • Scrimm

      Have fun dude and hang in there with the job.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        I’m gonna try to grind it out until April before I make any major decisions. I did get a couple of days off in two weeks and four weeks respectively so that will turn those twelve day work rotations into four days and seven days each.

        • Scrimm

          That’s good. I wanted to wait longer before I quit mine but things came to a head and I just could not take it anymore.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Damn, what would it be like to date again? I’ve been so far removed from the scene I don’t even know if I remember how to flirt.

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        I am only about five years out and even thinking that some day I might have to go back is terrifying.

        • It’s stressful as fuck, but not as much as being in a bad relationship is

        • I was 5 years in and engaged until pretty recently. I completely forgot how to do any of that shit.

          • Guacamole Jim

            Damn dude, engaged? That’s gotta be rough.

          • Not easy! But, y’know, life goes on and such.

          • Guacamole Jim

            Truth! Also, I often find myself wishing I had a girlfriend/wife, because wouldn’t it be nice? But then I remember all the awesome stuff I can do because I’m single that I’d have to give up in a relationship, and I hear people talk about children, and I think “Naw, not yet.”

          • I was completely prepared for the whole deal (kids included). I guess to be totally honest, I feel a sense of freedom now. A little breathing room.

          • YourLogicIsFlushed

            Me and my SO are pretty much sold on living the DINK life (dual income no kids). It’s the best of both worlds, engaged yet still free.

          • Guacamole Jim

            That would be rad. I want kids someday, I think, but just not yet.

          • YourLogicIsFlushed

            I did for a long time until I realized how selfish I am with my time. Soccer practice? No way Timmy, I gotta play xbox.

          • KJM

            I honestly don’t want to be responsible for anyone but myself, got too many personal “issues” for that.

          • more beer

            That is how I feel about it. I must say one of my greatest accomplishments in life is never changing a diaper.

          • Yup–we did that for 10 years before having a kid recently. Don’t do it until you are ready (if you ever are). It’s awesome having a kid, but it’s not for everybody (hell, it wasn’t for me even until very recently).

          • Guacamole Jim

            Did you make the call or did she? (Unless that’s too personal)

          • She did. No animosity or bad blood about the thing though.

          • Guacamole Jim

            That’s good. As far as ending things go, that’s about as good as you can hope for. I’ve only had one ex that I’ve stayed on good terms with, and I wish I could say the same for more.

          • KJM

            Fortunately, almost all my former relationships have ended on amicable notes.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            You’re lucky to have had one ex with which you are on good terms with. I have no exes who I am on good terms with. I’m currently single and I don’t need relationships at this point. I’m going to wait on that for a while and I’ll see what happens.

          • KJM

            Well, there’s that anyway.

          • con: losing her
            pro: not having to explain all us creeps

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            This chick I am going out with tonight – I emailed her my post that went live today on Wednesday night because I had to get her off the phone to write the damn thing. Haha.

          • hole up… you’re single? have they not seen your beard?

          • KJM

            Damn, sorry about that.

          • Scrimm

            I know you’ve kept that mostly to yourself but when you first talked about it I felt so bad for you.

          • Renan Ribeiro

            I feel for you. I was 6.5 years in with my highschool sweetheart and we broke up 3-4 months ago.

            That may be exagerated but I was so close to her family and it had been so long that I felt like I was divorced. That surreal shit you see on Louie? I felt like I was in that same weird place.

          • more beer

            You gotta look at that as dodging a bullet. If a chick will bounce on you like that It`s best you didn`t get married.

      • hold on to what you’ve got! at age 33, i feel like The Omega Man when it comes to finding single ladies

        • Scrimm

          That too. It ain’t easy out there, Especially when you’re an ugly metalhead 🙂

          • just don’t cut your hair. people will say “@joshuathackston:disqus, you look so much better with it short!”, but at the end of the day you’ll be looking in the mirror cursing yourself!

          • KJM

            I haven’t had a major cut since I was 18(i.e. almost 30 years).

          • Scrimm

            Been about 13 for me. I had one trim before a job interiew but that was it.

          • KJM

            Fortunately I’ve never had to cut my hair for a job.

          • Scrimm

            I know last time I cut my hair off I actually cried. The I ended up in the Army.

          • more beer

            The worst part of that is the vacuum attached the clippers in boot camp, you don`t even see your hair hit the floor.

          • Scrimm

            Luckily by the time I shipped out it was all gone so I didn’t have to endure that. Some dumbass kid came with long hair though anf the barbers wouldn’t cut it first, just took the clippers to it. Dude was yelling in pain.

          • more beer

            Mine wasn`t to long when I went in but i did notice what I did have just didn`t hit the floor. I definitely believe the thing about the long haired kid screaming. Those guys don`t fuck around it`s their job to cut your hair. They do that job in a very proficient manner.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah they did that shit fast. I was so glad mine was already gone.

          • more beer

            People who have never seen that have no idea.

          • Scrimm

            That is truth.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Try to avoid baldness too!

      • Stockhausen

        Flirting’s easy dude. Just maintain very wide eye contact and laugh forcefully every time she starts talking. If you can tell it’s going well (it will), subtle, non-threatening physical contact is the next step. Place the end of your index finger on the outermost point of her shoulder (it helps to keep a protracter on you). Maintain the same eye contact.

        • Fry:Okay, you’re on a date. What’s the first thing you do? Zoidberg:Ask her to mate with me. Fry:No, tell her she’s special. Zoidberg:But she’s not, she’s merely the female with the largest clutch of eggs. Fry:Well, tell her that. And then what? Zoidberg:Then mating. Fry:No, make up some feelings and tell her you have them.

          • Stockhausen

            Zoidberg knows a thing or two.

        • Tyree

          Thanks for the advice.

        • Edward #negrodMMXV

          Holy fuck Stocky.

        • I have aides

          Tell her you have aides.
          When she stares at you/asks for clarification, say “Yes, 5 of them. I’m a very important man”

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        I’ve been serial dating pretty much since I broke up with my last girlfriend. Dating is fun, serial dating isn’t really my thing but I have a couple things I think are making me a hard sell (sobriety, starting grad school in the fall, etc). Guac you should get out there, give it a try. Were you in a long term thing before or something?

        • Guacamole Jim

          I might give it a go this year. I’ve thought about it off and on. I actually haven’t had a girlfriend for maybe five years now, and my longest relationship has been just over a year. I had a couple of girls that things started working out well with but then turned really ugly, and that soured me from dating for a while.

          • DDubya.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I sure am considering I’m 19. I have a lot of female friends where I live. I have this one girl in my sights that I’ve had feelings for since last year. I want to ask her out but I don’t know what to say. Anyone know what I should say?

          • Edward #negrodMMXV

            “would you like to go out with me”

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            That is a good start. I need to think of something the two of us can do. Is it a better idea to go see a movie or go to a TGI Friday’s type restaurant and see where the night takes us?

          • Invite her to see the cherry blossoms

          • (´・ω・`)

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            That’s a terrible idea. She may be attractive but I’m not the kind of person who says things like that.

    • Tyree

      Tell her that her hair looks amazing.

      • Edward #negrodMMXV

        She just got it done yesterday she sent me a picture lol

    On a more positive note, some plans that I had that looked like they were going to go right out the window have suddenly reworked themselves so that things might turn out better than before. I may not be stuck in Edmonton forever!!

    • Edward #negrodMMXV

      Where are you going, Grvmamole?

      • Guacamole Jim

        If all goes well, Bolivia.

      • DON’T SKIP LEG DAY

        When someone who doesn’t skip sends a leg kick your way you’ll change you mind.

  • My micro manager boss has only bothered me once today, makes the day less painful.

  • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

    Easily the finest relationship of my life ended, and I found out I’m really, really, really sick.

    So I’m really trying to find a positive here. It’s getting a little hard though.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Shit man, that’s brutal. I’m sorry to hear that.

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        2015 already looks like a fucked up year. I try to think ip a more fucked up scenario, but I can’t figure out a one.

        • Guacamole Jim

          Damn. I’m hoping nothing is terminal in your case dude. Argh I’m getting all bummed out thinking about it.

    • *bro hug*

    • Edward #negrodMMXV

      I’m sorry to hear about the sickness. Mind if I ask what it is? Was the relationship a romantic relationship?

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        I’ll say I wanted it to geg as serious as a relationship can. The other thing, I don’t feel bad talking about, but ToH may not be the place to dig deeper.

        • Scrimm

          Sorry man.

    • Sorry to hear that, man. The toilet heals all wounds, though.
      But in all seriousness, don’t try to use an actual toilet to heal wounds, that won’t turn out well.

    • i feel your pain, brother bear (the finest relationship part). everyone says “time will heal” and they’re absolutely correct; but it doesn’t help at the present. so in the meantime focus your efforts on other shit, like writing for the blog (a terrific distraction).
      and get well soon. “really, really, really sick” sounds scary 🙁

      • I was going through the relationship bit late last year, I know how rough that is. Just know that in a few months time you’ll look back and realize it was a good decision.

        Edit: wrong person Fuck

        • Scrimm

          Glad your head is in the right place about it. That shit can be so incredibly destructive.

          • It was for a while, I’d never felt so completely out of it and mindfucked as I did

          • Scrimm

            Same here man it tore my whole life apart. Almost didn’t make it.

          • It’s crazy what it does to your head, worse than drugs probably

          • Scrimm

            It was dude. The worst was we didn’t just split I had to watch her take a nosedive into some horrible shit right after and there wasn’t a damn thing I could do about it. Still have a hard time even thinking about any of that.

          • Yea it’s rough, we tried to be friends but it’s just so hard to evern think of something to talk about with her. Meanwhile I’m having huge conversations with other women with ease.

            Good on the second half of that. I have no cntact at all anymore. Really that’s good.

          • I tried the online dating thing, it may sound cliche but it’s really just a numbers game. THe problem with online dating is that all the women on there have been jaded by creepers.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah I’ve never had any luck with that.

          • jack jack jack, i have recently given up on that sh1t. it’s a catch-22! girls get messages constantly for hookups. so somehow we have to try to stand out from the crowd when initiating a conversation. TOO BAD because it’s the girls who get to chose who they would like to interact with. i sent out 50+ well thought-out, sincere introductory messages. i got ONE back (because i knew her in real life already).

          • yup I have also stopped that shit.

          • Lacertilian

            so that’s where those 49 messages came from!

          • i never said it was 50 different people…

          • KJM

            Unfortunately, I know exactly where you’re coming from.

          • Scrimm

            Sorry to hear that man I don’t wish that on anybody.

          • KJM

            Makes me feel powerless and guilty at the same time.

          • Scrimm

            EXACTLY

        • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

          I’m not that sure, not my call.

      • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

        I’ve been trying to write a book. I think I might get published this year. So that’s good. But
        the thing is I’m not gonna get better, ever. So that is a bit scary.

        • old_man_doom

          What’s your book about?

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            This one falls under the category of Fantasy. Although it would be hars not to see the political and philosophical themes running throughout. Basically a critique of modern Finland, with dwarves.

        • Scrimm

          Writing a book is such a great endeavor. The feeling I got when I typed the end on my first novel length piece was one of the proudest days of my life, if not the most.

          • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

            I must say, I greatlh enjoy it.

          • Scrimm

            I’ve done 3 now, and when I get deep into one it’s like I am living in another world for a while even when I’m not working on it. Awesome.

      • Scrimm

        Time honestly never healed mine.

        • oh no. how long it been?
          plan B: replace her!!!

          • Scrimm

            Dude its been a very long time. I’ve tried but I just can’t get interested in anyone enough. Plus I don’t have shit to offer anyone right now.

    • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

      On a positive. As I did say somewhere here. There is a chance I might get my book published this year. And there are 1 to 3 albums coming out as well. Depending on how many butzz can I kick.

    • KJM

      Aw man, I’m sorry about that.

  • That is one happy goddamn panda bear.

          • mine was gonna be REAL funny, just trust that.

  • My dad has surgery next week to start a battle with cancer, but luckily it’s one of the slowest spreading and easily treatable cancers.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      Good thoughts and vibes to your father. Speedy recovery!

    • My dad’s having a biopsy on a lump in his throat next week. His blood test was completely normal so I suppose that’s good. Good luck to your dad though. I’ll keep him in my thoughts

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        Good thoughts your way too Jack!

      • Scrimm

        Yeah good luck dude.

    • Scrimm

      Thoughts are with you dude, I lost my dad to cancer 2 years ago. That’s good his is easily treatable.

    • KJM

      #FuckCancer

    • our thoughts are with Mr. Flaccid Penvs. KJM (and Brutal Truth) said it best: fuck cancer.

      • Scrimm

        Lolbuttz my dad got so many cards that said that. Also watching him while he was sick was proof to me that herb is a beautiful thing.

        • i’ve heard of herbs doing that a few times now. so sorry about your Pops. just heartbreaking

          • Scrimm

            It’s a lesson man. Go to the doctor. By the time he did it was stage 4 and all over the place. But he’d have all these kickass painkillers that couldn’t touch that shit, but a few puffs and he was up and around.

    • Simon PhoenixKing

      Good luck and best wishes to your pops man.

  • old_man_doom

    Grievance: I did not receive a teaching position/job offer from the organization I had applied for back in November. It’s a bummer because this particular job required so much damn effort for all the interviews, testing, etc.

    Positive: A few more teaching opportunities just opened up for me, so I now have a contingency plan. I’m stoked to move forward with that. Also, I’ll be wrapping up the mixes for an indie band and their pain-in-the-fucking-ass EP that I’ve been producing since November, so I can start working on my own sludgy tunes again. GROOVY

  • the bad: we seem to have been MA/Death/Tapir-less this week.
    the good:

    • Guacamole Jim

      Where is that loveable rapscallion?

    • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

      Who the hell are you! Also, I talked to him recently. He’s alive at least. I’ll wager an exam week, given he is a teacher it would be very busy.

      • Jimmy McNulty -> Noah Solloway -> Theron!

        • Nordling Rites Ov MMXIV

          I see… now.

      • The Mighty Tapir

        Nah, it’s not exam week quite yet, but I’ve been slightly busy with other, worse stuff. Btw, I’m sorry for what has happened to you, buddy.

    • Lacertilian

      They’re both bad Jimbawb.

  • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

    Joe here’s my OCD checklist:
    1. Hand sanitizer in the car.
    2. Frequent hand washing
    3. One a day for men
    4. Avoid hand shaking
    5. Get your rest
    6. BLIND LUCK
    7. Flu shot
    8. No metal sucks….weakens the mind and body.
    9. Wear Ebola suit to metal shows and when performing. Bars are petri dishes.
    10. Plenty of water…stay hydrated. Drink water, use saline nasal spray about 500 times a day in public.

  • I’m very fortunate that my immune system is bad ass. I haven’t been sick for about eight years.

  • Scrimm

    Bad- Still absolutely zero luck on the job hunt, finances are dire.
    Good – Finished all my guitars for our album, just the other guitar and vocals left.

    Side note Pandas are awesome. I read a lot about the campaign to let them go extinct and while it does make practical sense in a way I don’t know how you could just let them go like that.

    • old_man_doom

      Best of luck in your employment searches.

      I wish I was done with guitars on my new stuff. Rhythm tracking is slowly eroding my fucking soul.

      • Scrimm

        I hear that man hate sitting in the studio for hours on end. Doing vocals are even worse at least for me.

        • Stockhausen

          Hours of studio vocals murder me.

          • Scrimm

            Yep especially when theres another band member riding your ass whose never done them in his life and thinks it’s the same as playing a guitar.

          • Stockhausen

            UGH. Tell him to stop being a chump. I can hit it pretty hard, but after a few hours my head starts to pound and I need to take a serious break.

          • Scrimm

            Oh I do now that attitude that you can just tell me to do it again and it’s that easy makes me livid. Problem is he’s also the guy doing the recording. We do a lot better than we used to though.I’m just going to have to be more assertive about how I do it this time.

          • Stockhausen

            Best of luck dude, I’m looking forward to hearing it.

          • Scrimm

            Me too I can’t believe how long it is taking us but it will be worth it to say we did it all ourselves. Unfortunately the guy recording has the namm show and other shit in Jan. so we wont be alble to get that much done the next couple weeks. Im hoping byt the end of Feb.

          • Stockhausen

            Going slowly is frustrating, but it’s soooo much better than rushing it. My band got in a weird situation and had to cram our last album, and we have a ton of regrets. So many ragrets.

          • Guacamole Jim

            I dunno how many albums you guys have got out, but I’m pretty sure I’ve run across your band on youtube, and I dig it.

          • Scrimm

            It’s pretty goood stuff.

          • Scrimm

            That happened to us the last time. ended up a complete waste. Mas regrets here too. Not making that mistake again.

          • Scrimm

            By the was I was listening to the Ep and the vocal delivery reminds me a little of Bruce from Living Sacrifice. That is a good thing for sure.

          • Stockhausen

            Thanks dude! I’m a fan of Bruce Fitzhugh, so that’s a big compliment. Where can I hear your stuff?

          • Scrimm

            Yeah Bruce is a favorite of mine. This recording we’re woring on now will be the first we put out actually, the stuff before was unusable in my opinion. I have a couple couple tracks from our side project and an early version of the drums with scratch guitar for one song on the upcoming album. https://soundcloud.com/priest-of-leng/tracks

  • Not a Wrathful Diety

    Breaking character for the moment.

    The Bad: still 30 pounds heavier than I should be, always tired, still depressed.

    The good: picked up the Evil Within, listening to the new Sylosis at my job (which is finally a job I don’t hate), and my beautiful fiancé of 4 years is moving in with me on Monday. Great year so far.

    • Guacamole Jim

      I hear you on the 30 lbs. It’s the worst.

      • Not a Wrathful Diety

        I’m just lucky (not being cocky, but confident due to numbers still being offered to me and girls still flirting at me) that I’m still relatively attractive regardless, I just hate not having more energy and getting winded when I climb two flights of stairs.

    • Scrimm

      Congrats man! I like The Evil Within, though I’ve heard from a couple people the pc version is shit.

      • Not a Wrathful Deity

        Only had time to play 30 min before work. But I’m digging it so far!

        • Scrimm

          It gets better.

      • I’m actually gonna be playing it tonight after work. There’s been a bunch of patches fixing all the issue on pc so I’ll give it another shot. If it pisses me off though to dragon age I will go.

        • Scrimm

          I hope it works better now, it’s definitely a worthwile horror game. Not even close to the best, but there are a few classic moments.

          • Can’t be any worse than Resident Evil 6 lol. I mean RE6 is a great action game but it’s not a horror game in the least

          • Scrimm

            Yeah don’t get me started on RE6. At least revelations was somewhat of a return.

          • was it? I’ve been contemplating picking it up. Ill probably get the resident evil remake as well , but after the multiple broken games fiaso last year I’m gonna wait for reviews instead of pre ordering

          • Scrimm

            Yeah it was much better, if a little dated. I’m hoping the remake is good as well.

          • forgive me if we’ve spoken of this… have you played any Frictional Games games? Amnesia The Dark Descent is hands-down the best horror game i’ve touched.

          • I meant to a few times but never got around to it

    • take this advice (with all due respect): do 30 minutes of cardio three times a week and reduce your food intake by 1/3 to 1/2. these things will A) lose the pounds B) increase your energy levels and C) increase your self-esteem each time you look in the mirror
      congrats on the finace deal tho!

      • Not a Wrathful Diety

        All advice is welcome! Food is an addiction though. God bless my fiancé for sticking by me even when I got a little more to love around the middle. I was skinny when we got together!

        • absolutely an addiction! (i’m addicted to booze. cutting back would be a toughie.)

        • KJM

          Don’t eat anything for about 3-4 hours before you go to sleep for the day. This simple bit of advice may serve you well.

          • Scrimm

            Thats a good one I need to get back into that habit.

          • Lacertilian

            I’m trying to get baked before dinner these days, I thought I was doing the right thing waiting till after but then I found myself eating dinner, getting baked, then eating basically a second dinner.

          • Scrimm

            I do that too. I wish I could get baked right now.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Will do for you/1000

          • KJM

            Been waiting the past 3 days for “things” to sort themselves out, completely out of my hands, annoying as fuck.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            That is the worst, KJ. Our 1.5oz has lasted almost 2 months now. Pretty good I think.

          • KJM

            The most I tend to get at a time is a 1/2 oz. 1.5 oz would probably last me about 6 weeks give or take a couple days. I tend to go through about a 1/4 oz a week.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            I definitely am not smoking as much now as I was years back. A quarter a week is within normal operating parameters tho.

          • KJM

            That’s been the standard amount for a long while now.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Now if I could only con a doctor into giving me a benzo scrip

          • Lacertilian

            sore back?
            trouble sleeping?
            anxious?

          • BLVKKBEVRD
          • Lacertilian

            Saturday morning here, last day of the last Test match against India.
            Mates are on their way over for a day of vape, food and lounging.
            Good times.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            That sounds dope.

          • Lacertilian

            ‘Tis.
            Food suggestions from the Pirate w/ the blackest of beards?

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Its colder than fuck here, and the majority of stuff I eat is heavy (m/) or spicier than fuck. So I’m going to go with a good five-alarm chili. DO NOT USE PINTO BEANS OR YOU ARE A SCRUG.

          • Lacertilian

            Sounds good, I’m a sucker for mexican-style food.
            Dunno what pinto beans are…are they like kidney beans?

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Well, they are both beans? Kidney beans are the only Blackbeard-approved chili bean.

          • Lacertilian

            must be their toxicity that appeals to the pirate in you.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            almost anything can be toxic if you consume enough of it.

          • Lacertilian

            I wanna test that with LSD.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I wouldn’t try that. If you take too much you may break your mind.

            Did you see so much you broke your mind?

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            I dont think its the enlightening experience most people hope/claim. Ecstasy was way more fun

          • Lacertilian

            I find it is enlightening the first time, then it becomes fun as shit.
            Also depends on the set & setting (as with all psychs).

          • KJM

            It is, but not in the happy shiny way many think/hope for.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            will attest. had enuff bad trips, too.

            and i always preferred shrooms to the acid

          • KJM

            Fortunately I’ve never had a bad trip that I couldn’t talk myself down from. Shrooms are definitely more about fun and games.

          • mushrums >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

            What does a Tapir eat?
            Ants?

          • The Mighty Tapir

            This Tapir ate Indian food two days ago and has the shits. Every damn time! My tummy doesn’t like spicy food, but who the fuck even listens to him?

          • Lacertilian

            Teach the fucker a lesson with some tikka masala for breakfast.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            I had some hot lamb vindaloo. Fuck it was good!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I go to this Brazilian BBQ place in New York City called Churrascaria Plataforma. It’s a giant place with all you can eat meat served on skewers. It’s the best meat you can buy and they prepare it so well.

          • Lacertilian

            The Brazilian BBQ I got to in Sydney has these little fried chicken hearts, they’re amazing.
            Like the best nugget you ever ate.
            Plus I get to feel like Kali-Ma.

            That sounds awesome. The one near me has Parmesan encrusted Filet Mignon as well as bacon wrapped Filet Mignon. They also make the best sirloin on the face of the earth.

          • i dated an Indian girl years ago… the best part was when she invited me to family get-togethers. the food was ALMOST enough to stay with her, though she was lolbuttz in the head.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Yay, you’re back! Have you heard of the band UK? I just listened to Danger Money today and it was so good.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Nope. Are they yet another AOR band?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            No. They’re a prog band with John Wetton and Bill Bruford.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Never heard of them. I like what I hear though.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            It’s too bad both of the main members are dead. They were (and still are) one of my favourite industrial (more drone later on) group. Coil is the best gay band.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            That is sad. I like drone metal such as Earth and industrial such as Ministry, Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Eh, those are pretty much baby’s first pop-industrial bands.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Earth, tho >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Earth is good, but it’s not a part of the “baby’s first pop-industrial” group

            I don’t do much electronic stuff, prefer organic music.

          • The Mighty Tapir

            I dislike alot of electronic musc (dubstep, techno, trap, trance and shite like that), but Industrial is love, Industrial is life.

          • Lacertilian

            I thought your motto was Death is love, Death is life.
            Or has the Tapir manifested the an00se?

          • The Mighty Tapir

            Never has been. I don’t believe in motos.

            I love Taco Bell and homemade tacos. I cannot eat Mexican food from restaurants other than Taco Bell because they always mess up my order.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            I can make you a burrito that will make you want to burn down a taco bell.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I want one!

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            I make chicken burritos at least once a week. The mats aren’t cheap though. About 30 bucks, but will make food for two people for a good couple of days.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            30 dollars for mats? I just use tortillas and taco shells. I also don’t use ground beef due to its prohibitive cost in the US so I use ground turkey. The ground turkey is much better for the taco or burrito in my opinion.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Start with as much boneless skinless chicken breasts as you want (i usually start with > 2 lbs.). Boil chicken down in butter, salt, pepper, garlic, maybe a dash of Worcestershire sauce. Boil chicken until it falls apart and there is very little water. Remove from heat.

            Cut up your onions, peppers (bell, serrano, jalepeno, habenero), and add spices (you can buy the packs if you want), put it all back in with the chicken and cook down your veggies and let the spices meld.

            In separate pans cook your choice of rice, and a can of black beans (season both with salt, and always oil/butter in your rice water).

            Once all that is done, and your chicken guts have cooled, add white queso to the mixture. As much as you like. BUT BUY THE GOOD QUESO.

            Now, you can make your burritos and eat them. I, however, wrap mine and put them in the oven for a little

          • Lacertilian

            I’m listening to Achilles Last Stand by Led Zeppelin and digesting the pound of Chinese food I just ate. I might sit back and listen to some Little Feat bootlegs I have on my computer if I feel like it.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            I could eat some chinese 😉 Very compact, good for trunks.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I ate a General Tso’s Chicken meal from my nearest Chinese Food place. It’s good because the chicken isn’t all mushy. It’s very crispy but covered in a good amount of sauce.

          • KJM

            Crispiness is key.

          • BLVKKBEVRD

            Sweet & Sour and General Tsos are barely chinese food tho.

            It was the last great Zeppelin epic. Carouselambra could have been epic live but the studio version is crap to me.

          • KJM

            I like the studio version despite the overdone keyboards.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            The keyboards get so annoying I can’t get through the second half of the song.

          • KJM

            “For Your Life” rips shit up.

            I love that song as well as Nobody’s Fault But Mine. Candy Store Rock and Royal Orleans aren’t that good but Tea For One makes up for that.

          • Lacertilian

            Nobody’s Fault was my jam when I was 13.

          I have a food addiction. I eat constantly but I’m getting a gym membership so that may change.

    • BLVKKBEVRD

      I was vastly overweight when I was in high school. All I can say is what everyone else did: work out more, eat a little less and less. You’ll find you can at least cut one or two bad things out of your diet completely and it will help.

      With the amount that I exercise/physical job, I guarantee watching me eat will make you sick. So, if you love food, go to the gym.

    For anyone that’s contemplating radical neck dissection or anyone that just wants to inject a little fun into their Friday afternoon (and happens to have 43 mins to spare), here’s something that is sure to put a smile on your face. The band is having so much fun on stage that it just becomes infectious and oozes off into the pit. The crowd starts to grow from around 30 or so to a seething mass of some of the funniest moshing and near constant stage diving (flopping) that I’ve seen in years. It’s hard to know where to look as there’s so much crazy shit going on everywhere.

    • let’s pick one day next week (and we all have to know about it)… we strike on RCS!

    Autocorrect really does not want me to type ‘Bao’ unless I use quotation marks. Otherwise it goes with Val.

    iOS autocorrect is culturally insensitive.

    So I guess I could have sent this to someone to add to the next Crowd funding article, but I’m not actually sure it’s worth more than a passing mention. I don’t know the band here or their sound beyond the few samples posted. It seems to be fairly standard noodly progressive-power metal, though.

    The subject matter caught my attention for obvious reasons. As did the involvement of Arjen Anthony Lucassen, if only as “narrator”.

    • BLVKKBEVRD

      You has my attention

    • The Mighty Tapir

      Sorry, you lost me with power metal.

        50/50 so far isn’t all bad.

    I’d like to flush the month of January. Hungover from Christmas, you make a bunch of resolutions and everything is sour within a day or two, you get back to work tired and all you can think of is trying to shake everything off and kick start the year but its hard because the whole damn thing is looming ahead of you. It’s cold, its windy, it’s frequently wet. And on a personal level, I’ve been having trouble sleeping and been getting bad dreams for the first time in a while, including a reappearance of a hallucination goblin I’ve seen before. Sure I’ll be fine in a couple of weeks but for the time being, fuck January.

    But on the plus side, work was a blast today (got to look at the 1899 British Museum edition of EA Wallis Budge’s translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, and an illustrated first ed. of Poe’s Tales of Mystery and the Imagination, and later on found an unmarked glass urn of some cats ashes) and right now I’m drinking Bells and listening to Blut Aus Nord. Things ain’t all so bad…

    • A) Blunt Ass Nord seems to be the only band that sounds like them, and that’s super trill!
      B) i fucking love nightmares, i wish you could give them to me
      C) shake it off!

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        Blut Aus Nord is just so, so friggin’ great. Even when trying to be outright uninviting like on MoRt or whatever, Vindsval just can’t seem to help putting out fun riffs.

        I used to love nightmares, before they meant much to me. For instance, imagine the top half of a man, sweating naked and fearful, strapped to the front of a train, his intestines hanging out, one end pinned to a signal post. The train speeds off and all of him unravels in a bloody cloud. It’s a cool image, but not so when you have it, think you’ve woken up, then find you’re still around

        • you talkin’ lucid dreams, friend? okay you have me beat there.
          my common lucid dream: wake up, find out i’m 30 minutes late for work. realize it’s just a dream and wake up… to find that i’m actually 30 minutes late for work. realize THAT’S just a dream and wake up. (first nerd problems)

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            This week I’ve just had routine bad dreams, but it worries me because I had serious problems a few years ago. My lucid dreaming wasn’t a good time at all. I would have been glad of just dreaming about being late for work.

      Lesson: Fuck new years resolutions. if you got something you want to change about yo bad self you do it right away and don’t wait till the new year. That’s how I knew it was time for kaidan to go out in a blaze of glory.

  • J.R.

    I went and saw John Wick with some BROS and then ate two Royales at Steak ‘n Shake. havent eaten since. ’bout to make my own Toilet ov Hell if ya know what I mean

    also classes started this week. so Flush That.

      This is why I never get flu shots and I never get sick. However, I only eat red meat medium well to well done cos I can’t stand the taste of undercooked meat. Also, I’ve had food poisoning. You won’t die, but you’ll be praying for death. Usually though, food poisoning is caused by food that’s gone bad rather than undercooked.

      • I can’t even stand the sight of ‘8 Mile’ for that reason. Good movie, but I got some discount salmon from an already dirt cheap place back in 2002, and ended up sick as hell halfway through the movie. I spent the day with a garbage in front of me and a toilet behind me, and for some reason, ended up with a black boil on my stomach. Popping that thing could’ve made for a grindcore album cover!
        Lesson learned? Never buy $1.50 salmon! PS, food poisoning isn’t near as bad as kidney stones, which I’ve had a few times. Won’t kill you, but you’ll be wishing you were dead!
