Flush it Friday: Finna Play Some Got-Dang Vidya Games

Thank you for your continued support of this virtual outhouse. We’ll be back with your regularly scheduled content tomorrow.

I’ve got nothing for you today. Trying to wrap up my work so I can get yelled at by teenagers on XBox Live for an hour or two tonight. The floor is yours.

    The Ugly: Been sick since Monday evening.
    The Bad: Been sick since Monday evening.
    The Good: I am not as sick today as I was all week.
    The Good-better: Deer breeding season is nearly upon us. I will be in a tree stand all of next week. YOU DUDES ALL HAVE A GOOD ONE.

    <3

    GL

    • Why will you be in a tree stand? Are you going to be filming the deer breeding for later use?

    • Stanley

      That’s cheating, GL. You need to walk around and sniff them out.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Like the good Lord intended.

            I was watching this show on National Geographic last night about moose. There was a scene were the young ones grow their rack and then have to get rid of the velvet that was growing over the top of the antlers. Grim as fuck watching them scratching against trees with pounds of blood, flesh and hair falling all over the place.

          • GL

            And they do it once a year, every year! They are pretty amazing critters. I have a few pictures I will post something of deer on our place growing their antlers early in the summer.

          • Stanley

            I though the velvet/flesh was only covering the antlers the first time they grow. In future years when they grow bigger, don’t they just grow from the base? How would they regrow velvet/flesh/blood capillaries, etc, over existing antlers?

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            They drop and they regrow new ones every year

          • Stanley

            Wat? Really.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Yeah man, every year.

            This puts it far more eloquently than I can:

            http://www.iwla-rh.org/html/DGIF_articles/deer_antlers.html

          • Stanley

            Well, there are about 100 interesting things in that article. In the documentary they did mention that the antler tissue is some of the fastest growing tissue in mammals but I don’t recall them mentioning that they shed them every year. My favorite interesting thing from your article.

            “The most interesting aspect of this antler growth tissue is that, if it is surgically removed and grafted to another part of the deer’s body, an antler will grow there. For example, it would be possible to surgically produce a unicorn deer or a deer with 10 antlers growing out of its skull or any other part of the body.”

            Also, “One of the most unique is the impact that an injury to the back leg of a buck has to subsequent antler development on the opposite site. For example, the next time you see a deer with a normal rack on the right and a twisted stunted rack on the left, check its back right leg for injury. For some reason, after a buck has a serious injury to a hind limb, it will cause the opposite antler to be abnormal and stunted. The cause for this is unknown, but it is more common than most deer hunters realize. This stunting effect will persist even after the hind leg heals.”

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Well I’ll be damned, i need to read that whole article! I just skimmed through it amd made sure it had the basics before sharing it. Those are indeed very interesting.

          • GL

            Here are two pictures. The first being of the 10pt last year(was actually an 8pt). The second being him this year. Notice how much his rack grew this year. I cannot find the picture of him in velvet this June… he just had stubs then. Kinda neat!

    • Lacertilian

      Listening to this album yesterday and thought you might like to hear one of the bonus tracks.

      • GL

        This sounds different than I expected. LOL. Very neat though!

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      To your good health!

  • Stanley
    • GL

      Stanley, your car is upside down. Seems as though you are having some problems.

    • Stanley, I’m coming to your area next weekend

      • Stanley

        Dam it!!! I’m gonna be in Wales. Gonna see ma and pa.

    • nbm02ss

      I feel your pain. I had to replace a tire last weekend because of a nail, and it was practically a brand new tire. Get road hazard coverage, kids.

      • Stanley

        These tires have about 200 miles on them. New tyre at Big O – $373. I think I can get one for about $250 where I got them last time.

    • This happened to me in September. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Happened to my wife’s car not too long ago as well

    • Óðinn

      AAA might be able to repair that. Doesn’t look like a sidewall puncture.

      • Stanley

        Dude at Big O said that the plug/patch that they use from the inside needs a flat surface to adhere to and this is on the curve of the tire.

        • Óðinn

          Shit! Sorry dude.

        • more beer

          I have done a lot of tire plugs, when I worked at a gas station. That can be plugged. They are just trying to up sell you a tire.

          • Stanley

            Maybe/most likely. But what am I going to telll them. “No dammit. You will plug my tire!”. I’m taking it somewhere else tomorrow to get a second opinion/estimate.

          • GL

            IMHO that punctured too close to the sidewall (where the radial bands are). I wouldn’t think they would want to patch that. You could have them try though! Places around here plug/patch for free. If not, they usually charge $20 for a patch.

          • more beer

            Take it to one of those little Mexican mom and pop tire places. It should cost you like 10 bucks.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      no spare?

      • Stanley

        Nope, they are run flat.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    You like riffs?????!!!!!!!!!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Hail nothingness.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZmDL_PzvdY

    • Max

      That’s not a riff. That’s an atmosphere.

    • Stanley

      Got my ticket this morning for the SF show. Are they playing it anywhere near you?

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Yeah, on a Monday in January. Yuck.

        • Stanley

          Yep, same for me. Monday night. Ouch.

  • WHAT GAMES THO? TELL ME BABY GIRL CUZ I NEED TO KNOOOWWW.

    Good: Weekend finally. Going to a big BBQ competition thing tonight with the gf and her coworkers (her company has a booth). Going paintballing tomorrow around lunch with a bunch of my coworkers and then a halloween party with a bunch of coworkers.

    Bad: My pup is doing really, really well after her knee surgery but it’s making her a little too bold and she’s trying to use her leg a little too much already. She’s super stubborn and won’t listen most of the time so it’s tough to keep her in line.

    Ugly: All you muddafukkas.

    • Titanfall 2. I’d say you should play with me but I am bad at video games and worse at teamwork.

      • Joaquin Stick

        I should get that game. The beta was pretty fun.

      • Mmmm. I really want to get Titanfall 2 but I just bought Battlefield 1 and I have no monies after my doggy’s surgery 🙁

      • Have fun Joe, the footage I’ve seen of it looks pretty rad, I’d play with you but there’s not a lot of room in my apartment for my Xbox right now.

      • Waynecro

        The grappling hook in Titanfall 2 is fantastic. You’re not a robot pilot/soldier, you’re goddamned Spider Man.

  • Joaquin Stick

    Good: I still have exactly 4 hours to figure out how to make a teleportation device so I can go watch game 3 in Chicago.
    Bad: Paypal takes too long to accept my dollarydoos. I want to purchase that Maeth album.
    Ugly: Crippling boredom.

    • Lacertilian
      • Joaquin Stick

        I imagine that all digital money is in dollarydoos that need to be converted to USD.

        • more beer

          Personally I like cold hard cash.

  • Howard Dean

    I don’t play vidya games, but I must say that NES Classic system Nintendo is going to put out soon (for like $60!) has got me a little excited. I have no interest in shooting at manchildren in internet deathmatches for hours while my soul rots away, but my fuck could I go for about thirty minutes of Super Mario 3 or Excitebike every once in awhile.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      I like your thinking on this!

  • GOOD: My Harm’s Way shirt F I N A L L Y came in from the Deathwish sale on the 7th, Overwatch binge this weekend in hopes of sweet Halloween Loot Boxes.

    BAD: The odds of getting worthwhile cosmetics in Overwatch, those Oregon militia cheesedicks got acquitted, I have to get up before 12pm tomorrow for work to test the new website release, I’m probably going to spend the entire weekend laying in bed playing Pokemon instead of doing anything productive.

    I’M THE GUY WITH THE GUN:

    • Howard Dean

      Did your Harm’s Way t-shirt come with complimentary mesh shorts, protein shaker, and temporary “X” tattoos for your hands?

      • Naw BRO, I already had the mesh shorts and protein shaker. (srsly)

  • ME GORAK™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    GOOD: PLENTY NEW RELEASES 2 KEEP CAVEMAN BUSY!!!!!!!!!!!
    BAD: NOT ENUFF TIME 4 ALL COOL NEW RELEASE!!!!!!!!!
    METAL:https://youtu.be/2oak9gGTmjk

  • JWEG

    Good: Bathroom renovations are finished except the new light fixtures (e.t.a. next week). Haven’t got the blinds back up so I risk scandalizing uptight neighbours every time I shower, and there’s a blank wall I need to find an art print to cover, but it’s good to go otherwise.

    Also Good:

    Also Also Good, Metal:

    https://zaum.bandcamp.com/album/eidolon

    Reviews I’ve read are mixed, but I definitely side more with the higher-rated ones (sorry AMG). Maybe there’s a correlation in that i also quite like slow-burning existential ‘horror’ films (The VVitch) as much as I do those that provide more instant gratification. Maybe that’s just overthinking it. Or maybe it doesn’t matter one way or the other ‘why’ I do, I just do.

    There is no Bad or Ugly this week, at least nothing that affects me personally.

    • Lacertilian

      Haven’t found time to check the latest Zaum. Is it similarly themed to the last one?

      • JWEG

        Very similar. The less than stellar reviews suggest fewer ‘riffs’ as the issue, but I never thought the centerpiece of what Zaum was doing were the riffs anyway. Their inclusion is just part of the journey, not the whole.

  • nbm02ss

    I expect I’ll end up drunk at some point this weekend and ubering to Wal-Mart to get a PS4 w/ Bloodborne to play on Halloween.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Ha!!

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Good: Morbid Angel Domination is BACK ON SPOTIFY

    • WHAAAAAA? I DON’T CHECK FOR TWO DAYS AND THIS HAPPENS??

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        I just got an email from Spotify.

  • Eliza

    The good: I have no tests next week.
    The bad: I’ve had three tests this week.
    The meh: Everything else in between.

    • Are you telling me spending the entire week studying wasn’t the time of your life?

      • Eliza

        Shockingly enough, it can get pretty exhausting.

        • I am shocked. SHOCKED.

          • Eliza

            IT’S UNBELIEVABLE!

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    GOOD: Fuckin’ ey! Getting paid next month, for a change.
    BAD: I need to have a surgery. Swell, not like I could have thought of anything else to do with said monies.
    GOOD:Been sober entire month. (No, really!)
    BAD: Been sober entire month (yes, really.)
    UGLY: You. Yes, you!

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Getting paid>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Congrats on sobriety, my dude. Sorry to hear about the surgery

      • Lacertilian

        *Sorry to hear about the sobriety, my dude. Congrats on getting that surgery.

        • more beer

          I can not upvote this enough!

    • Right on brotha with that sobriety thing.

  • mother☆shabubu

    GUT: Great new music: Anaal Nathrakh, Car Bomb, Mothman, Thoren, probably a few others I’m missing.

    REAL GUT: Within $200 range of new goalie gear. I’m now debating that after it’s paid whether or not to quit my current job and seek a new one.

    GERMAN FOR BAD: So much new music I feel like it’s hard to appreciate each album.

    HÄSSLICH: The usual: politics, Anthropocene, people.

    PS: Don’t sleep on Mothman. Shit is tight. https://mothmantx.bandcamp.com/

  • Good: I found a guitar store that sells PRS guitars
    Bad: freaking expensive like Gibson guitars.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      PRS make pretty cool guitars, but yeah expensive as hell

      • Old Man Doom

        The lower end ones (retailing below $800) are damn good quality too.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Yeah, but you have to spend the 800, hahaha

      • $1000-$4000 man. Brutal prices.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Not usually a fan of PRS but this one caused expansion

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    GOOD: BBC is having a Star Trek original series marathon right now. Going to bbq, listen to copious amounts of Wu-Tang and drink beer with my dad tomorrow.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        False.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          I CANT DOWNVOTE THIS MORE THAN ONCE

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Probably because your crew is sub par

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i dont recall Patrick Stewart murdering his wife then doing hotel booking commercials!

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            That was a tad low.

            Besides, DS9 is best and I don’t remember Picard punching Q in the face.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i think ive said it before, thats because Q respects Picard and ends up seeing him as more of an equal

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Q is scared of Sisko, knows that he won’t take any of his shit, so goes crying back to pick on Picard.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            Q could just wipe DS9 off the galactic map if he really wanted to

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            You could say that about anything, ha

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Oooh, what kind of beer do you want?

          • more beer

            Something from there that I can’t get here. I do prefer stouts or anything dark.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Cool, I’ll find you something good.

          • more beer

            Right on. I will grab yours the next time I am down there throwing the back. Maybe tomorrow.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    Tells us to play vidya, doesnt mention DkS3 dlc.

    Good: vinyl came in today, and vinyl ordered today. got oil for the furnace.

    Bad: spent the majority of my decent paycheck before 5 o clock

    Ugly: crawfish

  • Jack Rabbit

    Good:Did good on two of my three midterms, waiting for the grade on the last one.

    Not Really Bad, Just Me Complaining:While I do enjoy the Halloween season, I always thought the holiday itself kinda blows

  • J.R.™

    Xbox? Hopping on that Titanfall 2 train?

  • Old Man Doom

    Good: got some new tunes up this week for download: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEvB61M9SIw

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfIywhRB4wQ

    Bad: So much grading, so much damn lesson planning over the weekend. Fuck.

    Ugly (in a good sorta way): New Hail Spirit Noir and Bohren & der Club of Gore releases. Writing some reviews for ’em right meow

  • Waynecro

    Good: The new Vermin Womb album.
    Bad: Do tea bags expire? I don’t know how long I’ve had this tea, but it tastes funny. Like, this can’t be how the manufacturer intended for the tea to taste.
    Ugly: Referring to researchers from Technische Universität Graz (Graz University of Technology) as “TUG researchers.” There’s an obvious reason why the university uses TU Graz, not TUG, as its abbreviation.

  • Good: Gonna stab some pumpkins tonight and play with their guts.

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    Probably gonna have do the opposite and not play games this weekend to make up for the 3 days I spent this week being unexpectedly obsessed with the Dragon Quest VII remake that recently came out

    Good/bad/ugly all at once: Halloween. Parties = beer, but I’m also lazy and hate dealing with costumes, also having to constantly experience worse and worse covers of nightmare before Christmas tunes

  • Óðinn

      Hey man, keep that ol’ chin up bud! I recently read a fabulous book entitled “Man’s Search for Meaning” that made me reevaluate my own perspective on life, maybe it could help you too; or just listening to some good tunes might do the same trick! Either way dude, feel better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cwy0vQQBM1M

    I don’t care about video games. All video game companies, all video game developers are exactly the same. They are just a bunch of rich assholes who don’t care about us.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      I don’t care about metal. All metal bands, all metal musicians are exactly the same. They’re just a bunch of poor assoles who don’t care about us.

      • Óðinn

        Agreed.

  • The Mighty Thorange

    Good: Halloween motherfuckers! Going to get absolutely pished. My local pub has got Skull-Splitter beer from the Orkney Brewery on tap. It is 8.5% and it is excellent. Also my Grandad finally got out of hospital so he is happy after about 2 months staying in a massive hospital complex.
    Bad: Don’t have enough money for a Halloween costume so i looks like I will be getting the old Viking outfit out of my cupboard again.
    Ugly: Lack of finances.

    • Skull Splitter is some serious shit.

      • The Mighty Thorange

        Aye. Some pretty damn good shit.

  • Xinen

    Good: At my warehouse job’s Halloween Costume Challenge I won second place, I dressed up as a black metal guitarist/musician. Won half a day off with pay. Guy who won first was dressed up as Gene Simmons quite well. We had our pics taken for the company newsletter. I’m looking forward to seeing some corpse paint and behemoth in such a big company mag.

    Bad: Ugh outside of the usual lifegoals I want that are too complicated to get into, thankfully nothing.

    Ugly: Thankfully not me haha, I got checked out and hit on by chicks and dudes alike, its most likely the hair. The price of replacement parts for my evo.
