Ah, Friday, the best of all possible days. Come 5:00 today, you’ll have the most free time ahead of you that you’ll have all week! Your boss is already gone, so your work after lunch is completely dickable! Maybe you’ll catch a movie or go out to a nice dinner after topping off your 40 hours. Get in here and tell us about the hell you’ve lived and the paradise you’re anticipating. This is Flush It Friday!

The Good

Aside from working really long hours this month to conclude some research, travel for work, find a new employee, and teach a class, work has been going really well. My boss emailed me to let me know he was giving me a raise, and my publications, the big metric by which you are judged in academia, have really taken off this year. I’m extremely grateful for a lot of interesting opportunities that have paid off to make those papers come together, and I couldn’t have done it alone. I’ve been fortunate to have a great support system here, so I remain grateful and hope for future success.

The Bad

With all the work I’ve been doing, I haven’t had as much time as desired to look for and apply to a new position. Match day for residency is in March, so my wife will soon be interviewing at hospitals all across the country. Although she’s a hyper-competitive candidate and will therefore have a good chance of landing one of her top picks, it’s going to be a bit of a sticky wicket for me to find a job where she may or may not be matched. We just have to do the best we can and trust it will all work out.

FFO: Portal, Chemical Cascades, Grave Upheaval

The Ugly

As many of you know, I am currently training for a half-marathon in November. The training is progressing well, and we’ll be at 10-mile runs by the end of the month. Unfortunately, all that mileage is putting wear and tear on my feet, and I have a plethora of new blisters and calluses to show for it. I’d post a picture for you, but feet are shameful and not meant to be seen in public. You’ll just have to take my word for it.

FFO: Exceptionally ugly things (like feet)

The Freedom

It is the weekend, my friends. Go, frolic, be free. Do good. be good. Feel good.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Good: Hells Headbash ruled.
    Bad: Work
    Ugly: Out of whiskey……………..

    • Lacertilian

      Would be rapt to see Scythian.

      • I got the album after you rec’d it. And plan on seeing them in St. Louie!

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Nice to hear work is going well for you dude! I hope your wife’s residency choices are what y’all are looking for and can get somewhere nice.

    • W.

      Thanks, dude.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Good: First day of vacation today. Truck is packed and ready to hit the road tomorrow morning for a week at the beach.

    No bads, no ugly, just some satan to get it started

    • REPOST

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        Up next!

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Scrimm would be pleased.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            JJD plz! You knkw Scrimm doesn’t like Van Halen, even though they are a good band.

  • Sir Tapir The Based

    Good: new Wovenhand. Competition for AOTY may have just ended for me.
    Bad: my feet are the target of sharp pupper teeth.
    Ugly: surely something else than a magnificent tapir.

    • Lacertilian

      Bite infected yet?
      Our resident doctor Dagon recently got bitten and DIDN’T HEED MY ADVICE to immediately get antibiotics. Shit got swole.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        She doesn’t bite hard enough to really pierce the skin. Only lot’s of minor scratches and holes in socks.

        • Lacertilian
        • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

          Same with our pit bull that we just gave up for adoption a couple weeks ago (after only having it two weeks). It bit my roomie’s kid’s hand and dragged her several feet. Not hard enough to pierce the skin very deep or really harm her, but that was definitely the last straw (on top of being noisey and constantly pissing in the house even after walking her).

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            She’s a pupper, it’s pretty normal for her to do this. Thankfully her babyteeth are dropping, so the biting should stop soon. She also still pees inside the house but it’s normal. The pupper won’t become housetrained in a few seconds.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            True. I think the one we had was about 8 months old (large as hell though). It was just too much aggrevation for my roomies, with the biting the kid, the peeing, barking all day and having 4 other pets as well (2 cats, a ferret and a Panamanian).

            What kind of dog you have?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            All three of them are corgis. One is 5 years old, one is 3 and the newest one is about 5 months. A swell bunch.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            Awwwww! Corgis are adorable!

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Good: Tyree’s battle vests. His crust/d-beat regalia has given me some good band recommendations for my recent grind/d-beat kick. At the same time Sabaton’s Last Stand and Twilight Force’s Heroes of Mighty Magic have been rocking my socks as well.

    Also good: NEW HELMET ALBUM NEXT MONTH

    Bad/ugly are basically the same as KSOFM down there, but I have plenty of beer to make up for it.

    Have a fantastic or abysmal weekend everyone!

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa
    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      I would also like to thank HM-Deuce for the Snapcase recommendation

    • Glad you like them dude. I think this one is finished finally.

      • I lied, I have one more patch to sew on the front. Bottom right.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Looks like the perfect spot for the Discharge logo

          • Haha, I’m debating between a Wolfbrigade, Dischange, and DS-13 patch. These are the only patches that fit that spot that I have.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I should be getting my black vest late next week, which i plan on studding portions of.I’m doing all b&w patches and have a Discharge logo ready.

          • NICE!!!!!!!

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Hopefully it turns out alright

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        So bad ass!

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        Heeey… That’s pretty good!

    • Rob M

      Is that Twilight Force any good..I just listened to the two songs they released on Youtube and wasnt really feeling it.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Do you like over the top symphonic power metal about magic and mystical beasts?

        • Rob M

          Well, I liked the first one…thats why I was a bit bummed by the two tracks I heard

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Huh, well if you didn’t like those two then you may not like the rest of the album. But it might also grow on you after a few listens.

          • Rob M

            Guess I’ll wait on it a bit. Hopefully I can find a stream a stream for it at some point

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Do you have spotify?

          • Rob M

            Nah…Im assuming its on there?

            Its all good, It’ll end up on Youtube one way or another and I’ll check it out. From what I heard, it seemed like they took the symphonic stuff and cranked it up to 11 on this album, even more than the previous one

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Yes it is.

            Very much so, lots and lots of symphonic stuff, maybe even to 12

          • Rob M

            Yeah, if its like that, I may end up skipping this one. I’ll let you know what I think once I finally hear it

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Fair enough. Let me know!

      • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

        It’s pretty much run of the mill symphonic power metal. It’s not bad, but it’s been done a million times over.

        • Rob M

          I liked the first one pretty well, but the two songs I heard on the new one seemed to up the symphonic parts even more, and the songs didnt seem as catchy

    • more beer

      Did you get your beer?

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Not yet, probably tomorrow.

        • more beer

          I gotta find that receipt.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            It’s all good man

          • more beer

            It went out late Tuesday. I hope the post office didn’t intercept it. But think if they did they would give you some sort of a notice that you won’t be receiving it. let me know worst case scenario. I will send another one on Wednesday when I get paid.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Will do, but I don’t think it will come down to that

          • more beer

            They have been kind of scrutinizing packages coming out of Colorado due to people mailing weed everywhere. So just let me know.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Haha, damn, thanks for the heads up

  • Howard Dean
  • Lacertilian

    Good: Got invited to an AFL finals game by a mate who’s a club member. Going to drink, get a pie and watch footy.

    Bad: Warding off the continued resurgence of depression has become unbearable several times this week.

    Ugly: Lack of sleep.

    Metal: Heard some more info about a new Krypts release during the week.

    Picked up the tape yesterday. Looks like they are selling out fast. Pick one up here or just get the MP3 tracks for “For Name Your Price…

    • Joaquin Stick

      Oh man, not sure if anyone saw Popstar, but Tim Meadow’s backstory involving this group is great.

      • I didn’t see it. Is the movie any good?

        • Joaquin Stick

          I’m pretty susceptible to enjoying even the dumbest comedies as long as they are a little clever. If you liked Hot Rod, I’d say to give it a chance. Obviously if you don’t care for The Lonely Island’s music, then don’t. It meet my expectations at least.

      • Tim Meadows >>>≥>>>>>>>>>>

        • more beer

          Personally one of my favorite Not Ready For Prime Time Players.

    • You will appreciate the 16 bars here that begin at 1:40 with that comment. Just watch this dude the other two guys are meh.
      http://youtu.be/pl99IALXAnw

  • Joaquin Stick

    Good: Dark Souls III was on a decent sale so I picked that up yesterday. Ready to get spooped.

    Bad: The Dear Hunter album I have been waiting for isn’t on Spotify, so I actually have to wait to get home and purchase a digital download.

    Ugly: I bit my lip rill good last weekend, and it’s still taking forever to heal / hurts like a mofo / looks disgusting. Eating and talking is hell.

    • nbm02ss

      Did you get it on Steam? I ask because a guy I know likes to invade other players and slaughter them……..

      • Joaquin Stick

        Ha, no I am pleb Xbone player luckily.

        • nbm02ss

          …..damnit.

  • Goddamnit, I can’t stop laughing at this.

  • Hans Gruber

    Good: Just bought Useless, who were premiered here yonks ago. Been looking forward to this ever since, then forgot it came out last week.
    https://thirdeyetemple.bandcamp.com/album/useless-absence-of-grace

    That’s all folks.

  • Mother Shabubu is fucking dead

    GOOD: New DTP. The bonus disc has some songs that might be better than the ones on the real album. And that’s saying something since I love the real album.

    BAD: Haven’t been to the gym in a while/enough. Getting out at 9 at night from work hinders what I can do after since there’s shit I gotta get done.

    UGLY: Need actual advice (Gonna be long, sorry.). In my current job, it’s part time, and I work three to five days a week. I don’t make enough to sustain savings, or get a vehicle. I’m trying to get the balls to apply to a different place that will be full time, and the hours work wayyyy better for me (no Sundays, can work earlier hours so I get out at a normal hour instead of 9). Don’t know what it pays, but can’t be worse than what I already make for the amount of shit I do. Problems: I don’t have a car. Meaning I’m dependent on rides. I’m too anxious and paranoid for public transportation and it’s close enough where walking is an option if worse came to worse. More Problems: my current job is just me and another dude. This dude can’t work three days of the week, meaning that if I left, the business would be closed or it would cause problems on those days. Not to mention he works a night job and has trouble functioning at early hours during weekend shifts. I don’t want to fuck this dude over, or my boss by leaving for another job even if it helps my needs, yet loyalty has gotten me nowhere in life so far. At the same time, I really need a better job and to take a chance. Anyone care to offer advice?

    • You don’t owe your job shit. Get a better job.

      • Joaquin Stick

        Also, if you get hired somewhere else, most places will give you 2-4 weeks to start, so you can give your current job plenty of notice to find someone else. If you can’t rid the guilt factor, that is.

        • Mother Shabubu is fucking dead

          If it means a better change from this current routine, I’m sure the guilt will subside quickly.

      • Megan Alexandra

        AMEN this is the best advice for everyone on earth

    • What Joe said, when it comes to a job, the most important person is you and doing what’s best for you.

    • Rob M

      Apply for the new job…If you get it, give the old one your two weeks like any employee should and then be on your way. Its up to them to use that time to fill your position, not your responsibility to stick around so things are easier on them.

      • more beer

        Giving 2 weeks is just a nice thing to do. You are not obligated to do that. I had an employer who wasn’t paying me for all of my hours. I told them I wanted my money a few times. I didn’t get my cash after telling them it needed to be on that weeks paycheck. It wasn’t. I quit on the spot. The boss threatened me with a bad job reference. I told him to go fuck himself and just never put working there on any application ever. If you don’t pay me I don’t work.

        • Rob M

          There are always exceptions, obviously, but theres a lot of truth in that old saying, you meet the same people on the way up, that you do on the way down….hedging your bets is never a bad idea. Took me a long time to learn that you never burn bridges that you dont have to

          • more beer

            I have always tried not to burn bridges. But that job I had to blow the bridge up. Also I have a strong resume so I wasn’t so worried about that. But the whole 2 week thing is much more of a courtesy than anything else.

          • Rob M

            I did it a lot as a teenager, and into my early twenties…mostly because I had a big mouth and a short temper. Now days, I work for myself so thats not really an issue, though keeping customers happy falls under the same umbrella in a lot of ways.

            ..and yeah, no one can force you work for them, but at the same time its a good habit to get into

          • more beer

            I also work for myself. I don’t see me ever applying for another job and working for someone else. Plus I work in the back end of the building trades. So my customers are the superintendents, in charge of building new homes. Not the general public. I have a good rapport with most of them. But like everything else there are a few who are assholes. So I just go do my thing and avoid them. I have been working for myself for about 15 years. It certainly beats punching a clock.

          • Óðinn
          • more beer

            Yea that sums it up. I can always count on you for the proper response!

          • Rob M

            Honestly, I go back and forth on it. When works good, I love it…nothing like being your own boss.

            When Im in my off season though and things get slow for a couple months I start thinking it would be really nice to be on salary and just not have to worry about all this shit every year

          • more beer

            I get that a little too. But this year I already have something lined up for my slow time.

          • Rob M

            Nice..definitely makes life much easier

          • more beer

            Yes it does. But I like my down time too. Between now and Christmas are pretty nonstop for me. I make about half of my money for the year in the next few months.

          • Rob M

            Im usually busy from about late Spring until just after the New Year and then I get a real dead time for a couple of months.
            Youre right about the down time thought, right around the end of December I start looking forward to having a bit of time to relax and rest

        • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem
          • more beer

            Yep!

          • more beer

            yep

    • I’ve been in the same position before in relation to not wanting to fuck over coworkers, but my advice is the same as Joe’s. You don’t owe your employer anything. Give your two weeks and let the bossman sort that shit out, it’s his job.

    • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

      Your boss needs to get a third person. If not, tough titties for him. You gotta look out for numero uno.

  • nbm02ss

    GOOD: Because of the hurricane I had a 3 day work week, which also made for a nice long weekend last weekend.
    BAD: Was without power, and thus air conditioning also, until Sunday. Kind of ruined the weekend.
    UGLY: Trying to sleep during a Florida summer with no air conditioning.

    • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

      We barely got anything from the hurricane over here (southwest VA). Just a heavy rain which started at 7PM and ended at noon the next day. No more damage than a few sticks thrown around and my cats running back to the porch for dear life.

  • Right now it’s good, next spring it may not be so good, next summer it may be ugly and I’ll be having beers this evening to temporarily forget about everything.

    – It might as well be a long weekend, too, since I don’t start teaching until Wednesday
    – I’m hopeful my new laptop will arrive before the estimated day (Monday)
    – Being less than a week from the second payday for the job I’ve been working toward for the better part of a decade. It’s a very good feeling.

  • Waynecro

    Good: I ordered some new speakers for my garage gym, because the little speaker in my Zune dock just couldn’t handle all the prolonged blasting.
    Bad: My attitude.
    Ugly: White-trash gals who are somehow both meth spun and morbidly obese stuffing themselves full of waffles during a shady Bay Area motel’s free breakfast. The police raided two rooms in that motel during the four days I spent there.

    • Joaquin Stick

      You always mentioning your Zune makes me nostalgic for my shitty Dell Pocket DJ back when everyone thought they could keep up with the iPod.
      https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41AmXnZBs6L.jpg

      • Waynecro

        I dislike Apple, so I’ve never purchased an iPod. The first MP3 player I ever bought was this cool cube.

        • Rob M

          So youre that one guy who actually bought the Zune

          • Waynecro

            Shit, bro, I bought five of them.

          • Rob M

            Hahaha!

          • Waynecro

            They all still work, too. I love those MP3 players.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I had one and it crapped out on me

          • Waynecro

            My oldest Zune crapped out on me after several years of use, so I had the hard drive replaced. I’m still using that Zune.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            It still remains my favorite media player I’ve ever had

          • Waynecro

            If I were the kind of guy who gets tattoos, I’d have a tattoo of the Zune logo over my heart.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          • Óðinn
          • Óðinn

            Nothing else matters when you have a sweet tat and a killer mustache.

          • RJA

            I believe 7 people bought them – 4 of them comment here!

          • Rob M

            Two of them belong to English royalty and the last one mysteriously vanished into the mists of time

          • Lacertilian

            I’d never even heard of Zune until I met McNulty. Still think he has formed a TovH sub-sect/cult based on those things, they’re like the damn stonecutters.

          • Waynecro

            We’re still in close contact with the aliens who brought advanced Zune technology to Earth.

          • Rob M

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Why didn’t you stay at a better hotel?

      • Waynecro

        Cost and location, mainly. The motel was reasonably priced for the area and really close to where I needed to be. Plus, Yelp said “clean, recently renovated rooms,” not “$125-per-night den of iniquity conveniently located beneath a massive drug cloud.”

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I’m staying at a hotel when I go to Scranton where all the rooms are suites and there’s even hot breakfast. I’m going to a music festival where Willie Nelson and Neil Young are headlining.

          • Waynecro

            That should be pretty fun, though that festival will definitely be under a massive drug cloud.

          • Ayreonaut

            Saw Neil Young with Willie’s son Lucas and his band last summer and it was awesome. Would love to see him again

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I did too. I’ve seen him 5 times before this. I also saw him last year. He played Old Man with them and because of that I can die happy.

        • more beer

          So what was the problem? Other than the cops. It sounds like a pretty fun place.

    Good: finally made real progress in going more minimal. So much shit to get rid of either by donating, selling, or just junking.

    Bad: I had time to do that because hurting my back earlier this week kept me from most gym or trail related physical activity.

    Ugly: that weird feeling where not being active has made you feel more tired

    • Lacertilian

      Your good is good.
      What did you do to your back?
      I’ve pretty much concluded that my days of maintaining a healthy lifestyle are done after fucking up my spine. Tried a bunch of approaches multiple times over the last 10 months and the ensuing pain has not been encouraging.

      • The Tetrachord of Archytas

        Dang! My back isn’t that bad. basically, I sat hunched forward and crossed legged while writing on a stair, because my lady wanted to do creative activities outside instead of at a table. It kinda effed my lower back, which normally just takes a day of stretching or yoga to fix. But my mistake was lifting the next day. The lower back issue kinda wrecked my posture on squats and I tweaked my upper back on my last set

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Still can’t make my bloody mind up on what to choose for my back patch.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      When in doubt, go Motorhead

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        Saw a really cool Order From Chaos back patch but the logo was brown, and only monochrome is real. I guess I can’t go wrong with Celtic Frost.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Celtic Crost is never a bad idea.

          Who else were you debating?

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Morbid Angel (obviously,) Autopsy, Napalm Death, the usual.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Ooooh, Napalm Death would be good.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Damn, that’s pretty much the one I was looking for, with the DM-style logo.

            There’s a new one?!?!?! GAH! I went and saw the original in theaters, and left supremely pissed off. As was everyone in the theater. I liked part 2 though.

          • Rob M

            Next week I think…

            …agreed on the first one, I remember everyone talking about how scary it was, and OMG its a real story…blah, blah, blah…that movie was fucking boring and the climax was bullshit.

            I didnt think too much of the second one either, but at least shit happened in that one

      • Or Clutch. Everyone likes them

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Good: I now no longer have to get up at 7 on a Monday morning.

      • W.

        Glad to see you’re back slumming it here with us than in the sewage at MS.

        • Yeah, we’re better!

        • Rob M

          I bounce around a bit, just because MS is so awful it makes me laugh. This place is far more enjoyable though, if I just want to shoot the shit with people

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            MS is still around? I figured it died off months ago. Last I heard, all it’s comments section died off and their traffic was next to nothing.

          • Rob M

            Most stories are lucky if they get 5 comments, but then Axl or Rhombus will write some dumb politically slanted drivel and get the extreme stupid on the right all stirred up, which then gets the extreme stupid on the left all stirred up and next thing you know theyve got 400+ comments

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            Their transformation into Infowars is pretty much complete, then.

      • Ayyyy! 😀

  • Rob M

    Good: Wife is out, so I can blast music without needing headphones

    Bad: Sister is absolutely crushed after after finding out her cat has cancer, feel bad for her and the cat

    Ugly: My mood, as the dog is currently acting like a basket case, and slowly pushing me closer towards running amok with a rusty wood axe

    • more beer

      Don’t listen to the dog like this guy did. nothing good can come of it.

      • Rob M

        Hahaha, I wish…if the dog was just talking I could tell her to shut up.

        She keeps whining and nosing at me to let her out because she thinks she sees something…goes outside, dosnt see anything, wants back in…Wash, rinse, repeat.

        Love that dog, but shes not the sharpest knife in the drawer

        • more beer

          My cat is the same way. in and out. Now the fucker has figured out he can come to the window to get in or out. He is such a pain in the ass.

      • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

        Or this guy.

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

        No idea what happened to him or the dog, but more than sure it involved the Russian mob.

  • Count_Breznak
  • Good: Vacation in Florida was excellent hung out with a bunch of friends, drank plenty, and got a few comic books. I’ve been jamming brutal/technical death metal releases this year, of which there is a relative wealth of quality material.

    Bad: Preeeeetty sure my apartment has fleas.

    Ugly: Your MOM HAHAHAHAHAHA BRO #REKT

    • Rob M

      Pets or no pets?

      • Yep, small cat. And the bites only appear on my lower legs.

        • more beer

          A flea collar is the answer to your problem.

          • I’m thinking bomb the apartment this weekend, personally. I think he has a collar already but it’s not making much of a difference.

          • more beer

            The collar could be old. Bombing the place means you will need to leave for a decent amount of time and so will the cat.

          • BobLoblaw

            Not if you want to stop the problem at its source.

          • more beer

            Then he should kill the cat? I don’t think that is the answer. I did pest control for a while. I would only use that as a last resort.pesticides are some nasty shit.

          • BobLoblaw

            A joke in poor taste is all.

          • more beer

            I am full of jokes in poor taste.

          • Yeah, I’ll have to talk it over with my roommate either way.

          • Rob M

            Have to be careful with collars though…even good brand name ones can overdose or even burn your cat

          • more beer

            My cat stays outside most of the time by his own choice. He always has a flea collar on. Granted it is an organic flea collar. But it does the job and he has no issues with it.

          • Rob M

            I think 90% of the time theyre fine, but you do need to keep an eye on how your Cat reacts when you first put them on. One of mine has a flea allergy, and the meds are becoming less effective, so we were looking into collars. Started reading up on which brands to try and found a ton of horror stories about cats getting sick or getting burns on their necks.

            Compared to the amount of people who have no problems with them, its definitely a low percentage, but it does happen. After all, you are putting a pretty strong chemical directly in contact with your pets skin for an extended period of time

        • Rob M

          Gah, best of luck….fleas are a pain in the ass to get rid of. Im constantly fighting them in my house because of all the damn pets

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    • Abradolf Lincler

      your scrotal life?

    • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

      What is a soctal? Sounds kinky and I got my bunk waiting.

  • The Mighty Thorange

    Good: My new flat-mate moved in as the new academic year is starting so we have spent the past week drinking/smoking and watching films and TV shows. Turns he had never heard of Firefly so we have been bing-watching that. Got a friends Birthday party tomorrow so looking forward to that.
    Bad: Started my final year of University. Got a massive, buttfucking dissertation to write. Going to be a tough one.
    Ugly: Going through the whole mourning process of realising how fucking great Firefly was and realising it will never come back all over again.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Fuck, Firefly is so good. I feel for you man.

      • The Mighty Thorange

        My only feeling of guilt from introducing someone new to Firefly is that they will feel the same empty, vacuous void that we feel. I do not feel guilty over their deepening hatred for Fox, so swings and roundabouts I suppose.

        • BobLoblaw

          They will at least be introduced to the the joy that is Alan Tudyk.

        • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

          Now you know my pain when they took Touch off the air after not even one season! BTW, they’re kinda sorta bringing Firefly back and Fox confirmed it:

          http://en.mediamass.net/culture/firefly/reunion.html

          • The Mighty Thorange

            Damn it! it is confirmed as false. There is a rumour about new episodes pretty much every year and nothing comes of it. I have just given up hope of it ever happening.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem
          • BobLoblaw

            Did you read that link? The actors pretty much confirmed they have no interest in bringing it back and there was some speculation of a reboot (may as well not bring it back). Don’t be getting peoples hearts to fluttering.

          • The Mighty Thorange

            A reboot would be the absolute worst thing to do. One of the best parts of the series was how well the cast all interacted with each other and they all had chemistry together that made you feel like they were genuinely a crew that had been through everything together. Rebooting it with new actors would not have that. I would however, be up for an animated series that continued the story if they get all the original actors back to do the voices.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            Whoopsie. I just looked it up since I remember hearing about them bringing it back a while back. My goof.

    • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

      I keep forgetting to check out Firefly. I meant to get the DVD of it from the library a while back (can’t do that now since I owe them quite a bit of money), and it’s fell off my to-watch list afterwards.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Got netflix?

        • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

          Yup.

          • The Mighty Thorange

            It’s on there. SO NO EXCUSES!!!

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            I’ll try fitting it in sometime this weekend.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Mighty Thorange beat me to it ! Haha!

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            HAIL!

      • The Mighty Thorange

        Do yourself a favour and get it watched. Genuinely one of the best shows ever. All the characters are great and you will be surprised how attached you get to them and how invested you are in all their stories and arcs. Especially when there was only 14 episodes made (and the kick-ass movie that followed).

  • EsusMoose

    Good: Pizza, football, beer
    Bad: hour and a half compiling times
    Ugly: ah

  • Megan Alexandra

    Good: saw mortuary drape last night, and mailman brought new and old Blood Incantation, Spectral Voice, and Emptiness.
    Bad: what are you doing going to super late black metal shows on weeknights in another city when your partner is away? Don’t you know your toddler is going to be up at 5 no matter how late you get home?
    Ugly: me right now, honestly.. Tomorrow is another day.
    FREEDOM: Early bedtime for kid, anxiety relieving bong hits for me plus headphones and this beauty: https://youtu.be/VBfnWZkW7sE

  • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

    Good: Got a job interview next week. Seasonal/part time gig, but it’s something, so wish me luck. And it’s way early in the morning (6 or so), so if I land it I’m going ahead and signing up for school. Perfect timing to fit it in there since it’s a part time gig where I’d pretty much just unload the merchandise truck and clock out (from what I can tell).

    Bad: Cat got stuck in a tree almost 35 feet up for 5 days before we found out where his dumb ass was, and his massive gut is now gone (it’ll be back soon enough).

    The lolbuttz (and no, it’s not Photoshopped):

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

        Thanks, defender of the hall!

    • What you going to school fer?

      • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

        Thinking on that, but most likely pharmacy tech to start off with. Only takes 6 months, relatively easy and pharmacy tech pays reasonably well/almost recession-proof.

        • and you can accidentally loose a few pills here and tehre

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            Sure, and get fired and possibly arrested. I don’t pop pills as is.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          someones gonna let you around drugs?

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

  • BobLoblaw

    Good: Almost home from work (counting the last 12 hours), my old lady just got a new (better) job, catching Bill Burr in Richmond on Sunday and my sons first week of school has gone well.
    Bad: I am currently still on the tin twinkie.
    Ugly: People in general.

    • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

      You’re near Richmond, I take it? I’m over in Newport News, not all too terribly far from there.

      • BobLoblaw

        Yeah, between Petersburg and Richmond for now. Would like to move someplace that delivery drivers arent scared to deliver to after dusk.

        • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

          Fredricksburg’s nice from what I hear, and it’s not far from there. Hampton Roads altogether is pretty safe, but then again I have a very loose definition of what a good or bad area is, considering where I’m from. :-p There’s only been 4 shootings on my street since I moved here, which to me isn’t too bad.

          • BobLoblaw

            Gun pulled on me once around noon, weekly break ins etc. Its not as bad as a few years ago though. The Burg is about an hour from here/hour closer to work with prices to match.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            Yikes! Hampton, which is right next door to me, had the highest murder rates in VA for a while (not sure about this year). I don’t hear about all too much crime around here, but at least half of Newport News (around the shipyard and downtown area) is a drug riddled shithole. The half I live on is where all the nice upper class homes are, but the other half looks about like Flint, MI.

            I was pretty reluctant to move back to VA (I spent a short time growing up here), but I’m thankful. Beats the fuck out of Chicago nowadays. I loves my city, but it’s been on a continuous shitslide for at least the last 5 years and is getting worse and worse. Here, it’s pretty chill.

          • BobLoblaw

            Hate to disagree with you but Richmond has always had the highest murder rate in Va and at one point was in the top 5 for the country. Its gotten better but is still pretty rough. I know over there you have a higher crime rate though which is weird. Va isnt too bad for the most part.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            The higher crime rate is most likely what I was thinking of, my bad. :-p

          • BobLoblaw

            No worries.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            If you’re ever around this way, let me know, and I’ll kick witchya.

          • BobLoblaw

            Rock out with our dox out.

          • Lena Dunham’s Angry Moo Anthem

            If I pulled my dox out, it’ll probably get chopped off.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    Good: my new battle vest (it also has a gun pocket). concerts coming up. dank ass Black Angus Burger for dinner

    Bad: had a scare that Ghost might have gotten out with my in-laws here earlier but she is safe

    Ugly: Untapir

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Did you pick leather or denim?

      • Abradolf Lincler

        black denim 3xl fits my xl body so no return. perfect buy for ~60$

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Also, dank ass angus burger>>>>>>>>

      • Abradolf Lincler

        more than satisfied despite the $12 pricepoint

    • Probably a good idea to post a pic of Ghost, just cuz

      • Abradolf Lincler
