Flush it Friday: For Metalheads Who Cannot Afford Therapy

Welcome back to Friday afternoon, the sweetest moment of each and every week. Let’s ride it out to Beer Thirty together.

It’s a well-known fact that politicians and other seedy bastards prefer to use Friday afternoon to release bad news. It’s a tactic that works to their advantage; most of the world is too focused on getting the fuck away from work for a brief reprieve from the grind to focus on the news. As a result, potentially damaging information slips through the cracks. In other words: nobody gives a shit about anything that happens Friday afternoon. This is the rationale I used to create the format of Flush It Friday; no one cares what we publish in this time slot, so we might as well get it all off our chests and feel better going into the weekend.

I’m glad it’s become a lasting tradition here. This feature has made regulars out of lurkers, and brought friendly listeners for some folks that may not have much of a support network otherwise. These seem like good things. A few months back, our favorite arm-less martian RichteR summed it all up succinctly:
richter
Which brings me to
Bad: I haven’t been doing well for a while. Rather than getting into specifics, it’s come to a point where I realize I need help.
Good: So I’m doing something about it. I started therapy. It’s expensive, difficult, and painful but I’m going to stick with it for a while and try to improve.
Ugly: Bloggers talkin’ bout personal shit on the Internet.

The floor is yours. Say what’s on your mind before the weekend kicks off and start the weekend out right. Also, have an awkward ass clip from Baywatch that I haven’t thought about in more than a decade. Thanks to Molenaar for unintentionally reminding me of it.

    Weird: Sugar cookies with candy-corn frosting.
    Creepy: The seeming abundance of spiders hanging out near my car.
    Cuuuuuuute: Our ToH writer/editor group costumes this year.

    • I have told my wife repeatedly that I will not dress up in some identical themed fashion thing to be cute. This photo is confirmation of why you don’t do that.

        Oh, by the way, Brenda from HR was supposed to send out a memo. Minion costumes are mandatory at the ToH Halloween Gala this year.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Who’s Brenda from HR?

          • Vote for Jeb

            The Head of Human Resources here at ToH Industries.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I forgot about her.

        • Well, I won’t be dressing in the Hillbilly Jim overalls like that sad sack in the photo.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          We definitely need a silly “TovH author costumes” article

          • Vote for Jeb

            I’m down. My wife and I went as rednecks a few years back. I grew out a really trashy mustache and wore a mullet wig.

          • I have pics from previous years of a few I’m proud of. Will see if I can find them.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I was Hannah Montana for Halloween in 8th grade. I have no photos though.

          • Dagon

            “Here’s the costume worn by our South American TovH correspondents, complete with bullet holes, stab wounds and blood!”

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Me and my better half have sweet matching costumes lines up for this year. I still need to shop for mine, but whatever.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      NOOOO NOT AGAIN

    • Based Pingu

      Dunno about her Halloween costume, but more than sure my roomy’s 5 year old is sticking with Frozen this year. There is no more of a diehard Frozen/Amberian Dawn fan on earth.

  • The Good: It’s October! The month of all things Horror and Gore!!!

  • I feel like the worse part about therapy would be verbally admitting to all emotional/physical nonsense that I keep all bottled up everyday. Which leads me to believe that it takes some serious courage to work through it all with a complete stranger. Serious props, Joe.

    The Good: Fall weather!
    The Bad: The countdown to winter!
    The Ugly: Mass killings.

    Here is a bitching picture of some guys jeeping out west. Totes jealous!

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      I once had a therapist who looked like she could be Uma Thurman’s sexier younger sister. Talking to her about certain things was rough.

    • You said it, man (about Therapy).

  • Good: It is starting to get cool, finished my mid-terms and didn’t feel like I did poorly on them, had pizza, and finally got a call for a job interview.

    Bad: It has rained for eight days straight up here in Boone. 3 Inches of Blood? Hah, more like 10 inches of rain. I also tried whiskey for the first time and found it to be utterly repulsive.

    Ugly: The amount of pus that came out of the infected hair I lanced yesterday.

    • Vote for Jeb

      You’re supposed to keep drinking the whiskey until it no longer tastes that way.

      • For me, I’d much rather drink something that tastes good. When I can actually buy it legally and not just try it because your friend was generous enough to let you taste it, I’m probably going to try everclear and mix it with various shit.

        • more beer

          That is a very bad plan. I would suggest if you are going to find something to mix start with vodka or rum. Everclear is like is like drinking turpentine. It is also the fastest way to kill your liver ever. This advice comes with years of experience.

          • I shall heed this advice then. I’m not a drinker at any rate. Alcoholism runs very heavily in my family and I don’t want to become addicted to that shit. I prefer having a clear mind and being able to remember shit.

          • more beer

            Just ease your way into it. Don`t drink a fifth of liquor first time out. Kind of like not running a marathon the first time you go running. Better yet start with beer.

  • The Good: Friday! A weekend with no obligations or responsibilities. I am going to savor every last second.

    The Bad: Time passes by entirely too fast. I find myself struggling with where it all has gone and what I’ve done with it. This tends to lead to an infinity loop of thought that drives me mad.

    The Ugly: Morgan Freeman Macklemore freaks me out.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      GAH!

      • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

        It’s like if Morgan Freeman had a bastard lovechild with Jersey Shore.

        *donates $100000000000000 to the Gah Jar*

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      That’s why it’s usually always best to live in the here and now. You can drive yourself cuckoo-bananas contemplating that shit too much(as I have).

    • more beer

      There would be something wrong if it didn`t freak you out.

    • Óðinn

      Holy fuck! It’s Morglemore! Ruuuuuuun!

    • Óðinn
    • Óðinn

      ~~~

  • Bad: Being told you have to correct work you did correctly because someone failed to mention a very important detail.

    Worse: Having to correct that same work again because someone left out an important detail again.

    Good: The end of this miserable work day. It’s been a real shit show, one for the ages. Beer, herbs and music will be my therapy.

    • xengineofdeathx

      Dude I hate the lack of communication/being accountable for people’s oversights and fuck ups at my job. I feel your pain.

      • I think my only saving grace in this whole thing is that I could care less. I’ve refused to do anything further about it until all parties involved come to a consensus on the way foward.

        • xengineofdeathx

          Yeah fuck it man, let them sort their shit out while you enjoy your weekend.

    • Dagon

      FUCK WORK KKKK TRABALHARUMA MERDA

      BRBRBRBRBRHUE

  • xengineofdeathx

    Good- I’m getting back into guitar, and it’s helping my hurt feelings go to the land of wind and ghosts

    Bad- my little brother just got a 7 month stint in prison. I feel like I have failed in a way, like I should have watched out for him more. I feel a certain responsibility for him, but there’s only so much I can do when we’re adults. So, fuck.

    Ugly- all the shootings lately. What the fuck is going on with humanity? Not to mention social media- on both sides of the debate whenever something like this happens.

    • to [semi]quote KSoFM, “humans are the worst”

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      You can’t keep people on leashes all the time. As you said, there’s only so much you can do.

    • more beer

      You can`t blame yourself for your brother. We all choose our own path through life. The best you can hope for is that he learns his lesson. That leads him to making better decisions.

  • JWEG

    The GOODS:
    New Kroh choon: https://kroh.bandcamp.com/album/living-water
    Also, through one of the random other users I follow I found this: https://disenchanter.bandcamp.com/album/strange-creations

    I haven’t bought it yet, whereas the single was a buy-on-sight kinda deal. I just noticed it because one of the persons I follow whose interests occasionally align with mine bought it. I don’t think she’s a TovH follower, though.

    I got paid on Wednesday so I could easily get this, but I just bought a stack of random Shout Factory/Scream Factory BRs instead. Included:
    – Robot Jox
    – I Madman
    – The Sentinel
    – Ghost Town (no, not the one with Ricky “I-had-to-Google-to-ensure-I-spell-Gervais-right” Gervais)
    – The Town that Dreaded Sundown (definitely not the remake/reboot/whatever)

    THE BAD:
    I probably won’t be able to get through them all in one weekend. I have assignments to mark and lab material to prepare for next week.

    THE UGLY:
    I’ve got nothing.

    • JWEG

      Just to clarify the UGLY: I am fully aware of the latest mass casualty situation in Oregon. I just choose to refrain from offering any commentary other than sympathy because (a) that’s what local law enforcement asked for and (b) as a Canadian citizen my opinion of the true, fundamental, underlying solutions are recognizably biased.

      I will only say this: American politicians, interest groups, States and municipalities and average citizens all have the tools to deal with the underlying catalysts once and for all. I feel many just mistake the ‘tools’ in question as ‘more guns’. But I fully acknowledge my bias as a resident of a nation that ‘won’ its independence by ASKING NICELY.

      • Well said sir, our leaders don’t practice common sense here so that’s why we routinely have reprehensible behavior like this.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      The Sentinel(1977) ??

      • JWEG

        That’s the one.

        I saw it once, but it has been ages so I think I can treat it almost like it’s new to me.

        • KJM, Doom Hunter General

          Excellent horror movie. Even the small parts have bigtime star power.

    • Scrimm

      Sentinel is great, I enjoy I madman too.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: my date went somewhat well

    Bad: my lack of hours at work, I have to wait for my paycheck until tomorrow

    Ugly: the Oregon mass shooting.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    GOOD: Seeing Ghost tomorrow. Two concerts and two trips to Kuma’s in as many weeks.

    BAD: Not much.

    UGLY: A weekend without neon nights.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      Enjoy the show! I know I did.

    • Between The Buried & Smee

      I am also going to see Ghost tomorrow!

    • InfinityOfThoughts

      Saw Ghost earlier this week. Holy Satan was that a good show. That band is on fire right now.

      • KJM, Doom Hunter General

        Boston?

        • InfinityOfThoughts

          Si senor

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            Ah! I was there!

          • InfinityOfThoughts

            That was a great show, wasn’t it? I didn’t care much for Purson though.

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            I actually like Purson a lot so it worked out well for me.

    • Nativian Taco

      I’ll see them in a couple weeks. Fucking stoked.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    The good: Leaving my job to start a new business
    The bad: Probably will be losing money for a good six months
    The ugly: My Halloween costume…

    • Boss the Ross

      Good to hear self employment. I hope it goes well for you.

      Any pictures of aforementioned costume?

      • Scrimm

        OW!
        Just watched that for the first tim since childhood since I got it in the box set. Kind of a fun movie when not put up next to the rest.

  • therapy is great thing. if we want to strengthen a particular muscle, we do exercises for it. we may not know what exercises are available for the mind; and that’s where a therapist comes to help.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I have a therapist. I see her every other week.

      • Based Pingu

        I went to a therapist when I was a kid. Had some severe phobias.

        • Based Pingu

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I shall. Even though I didn’t play my cards perfectly this first time I shall this next time.

          • KJM, Doom Hunter General

            Cool. Just chill and have a good time. No pressure.

          • don’t tell her about me. instant date ruiner.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I wont.

          • Ohhh when you’re going on a date, and you put on a shirt! And you ride your bike to the daaaaate!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I hope tomorow goes well. Maybe if I play my cards right…

    • I would far prefer to just strengthen muscles : /

    • Lacertilian

  • Boss the Ross

    The good: New Clutch Album
    The bad: due to bad vinyl test pressings, the preorders are getting sent out later than expected
    The ugly: i have to work this weekend

    Remember kids, other bands may play but Manowar always kill.

    • Boss the Ross

      To add to the good, I’ve found alot of solid black metal in the past week.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      Clutch >>>>

      • Boss the Ross

        It is a brilliant album. Sent chills tingling down my spine, shot lightning through my toes and attacked my brain.

        • Lacertilian

          I’m still yet to hear it in full.
          Does it top Earth Rocker for you?

          • Boss the Ross

            I dont know what the general consensus is, but for me it does. This album jams so freaking hard and has some different vibes on it that Earth Rocker didn’t, a natural progression for Clutch though. Now, don’t get me wrong, Earth Rocker is phenomenal, but i like this one just a tad better. Get it as soon as possible.

  • Nativian Taco

    The good: Have an interview coming up. New job equals more metal, PS4, and more booze.
    Also, it’s October. October>>>>>>

    The bad: I’m unemployed, but at least I’m in loser denial

    The ugly: I’m going to drink as much whisky as I can tonight

    • Drink some water after you’re done with whiskey. You’ll thank me in the morning.

      • Nativian Taco

        I always drink water after a night of boozing. It would be insane not to.

  • Scrimm

    Good: Halfway done with vocals. Woohoo! October.
    Bad: Freeloading, untrustworthy people staying in your home, so broke I have to pawn my guitars tomorrow to make rent. Fighting off a particularly nasty bout of depression. I’m making it my bitch mostly but it aint easy.
    Ugly: W’s recent stream of constant dissapointment.

    Side note: Joe this place has done a lot for me, I know I don’t know you so well but I’m always here for you man, sure I’m far from the only one

    • Thanks man. That feeling is mutual.

      • Scrimm

        I am grateful for that.

      • Paris Hilton

        I believe that the unwillingness of going to counseling/therapy is really a mental barrier of what people will think. Do you Joe, peeps who matter will support you! If you let it, it can work wonders in gaining perspective and growing as a person.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Joe I went to see someone professionally for about eighteen months, after I had more than six years of sobriety. Good luck. It’s really worth it if the person you see is any good.

        • KJM, Doom Hunter General

          Ugh. I’ve lost track of how much of my life has been spent with various therapists and “counselors”.

      • sweetooth0

        I’m sorta in the same boat Joe. I’m going to look into my employee assistance program through my work to try some counseling. The divorce stuff ended up not being so smooth sailing after all and 10 years of hurts ended up getting aired out over the course of last weekend. So now I’m in a position where I need to fix all the shit I’ve been dulling out with excessive substance abuse over the years (realizing you’ve been a high functioning alcoholic since age 13 is kinda brutal ate age 34). Hope things work out for ya man!

        • sweetooth0

          But hey, it ain’t all bad:

          GOOD: It’s MUTHA FUCKIN OCTOBER UP IN THIS BITCH! My favorite month of the year. Nothin’ but horror for this clown all month long!

        • EAPs are there for a reason! I wish you the best of luck with it dude.

      I’ve been trying to write about lots of bdm to offset my other failures.

      • Scrimm

        It’s a start, I GUESS. I don’t know what happened to me and writing, used to do it every day, always wanted to translate that into something on here, but I just can’t get motivated to do it anymore.

        • Vote for Jeb

          Yah, I feel you. Some weeks it is way harder than others.

          • Scrimm

            It’s more than that, I’m afraid. It’s always what I wanted to do more than anything. I have over 100 pages of fiction alone, and I can’t even get motivated to look at it for editing/rewrites, much less show it to anyone else. Last time I was working on something original was almost two years ago.

          • Vote for Jeb

            🙁

          • sweetooth0

            I started wiring a horror/fantasy novel, but abandoned work on it after getting somewhere around the 100 or so page mark. Just couldn’t find the motivation/inspiration. I suspect if I read through it now I will cringe so hard my spine breaks, but I am hoping with all the life changes I am in the process of making I can go back to it and re-write it.

      • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

        Liking nutella and orange julius are qualities of failure?

      • Paris Hilton

        I’ve been trying to write about lots of bdsm to offset other failures. But I’ve been really tied up lately. I know I just need to buckle down and get some discipline.

      • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

        I’m in an odd place in life, in a sorta good way. Finally working after 2 years, and now, instead of sitting around with a brain full of idle, booze-addled pipe dreams, I’m actually just taking it moment by moment with a sense of moving forward somewhere down the line, and quite soon. Finally feeling like I’m in control of my destiny for once, but kinda afraid of fucking it all up. Or some bullshit derailing me.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      Stay strong.

      • Scrimm

        Doing my best. Off all medication again, but coping.

        • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

          Stick in there, vinur minn! 🙂

    • excited to hear them vox, son!

      • Lacertilian

        It’ll be cool to hear the whole album, so far it sounds killer.

  • Dagon

    I honestly took a couple therapy sessions back in ’11 before leaving for the US. I think it kinda served as a place I could talk about shit I already knew was wrong. I hope it works for you, it did help me a bit. But keep in mind that the most important thing you can do is help yourself. Strive.

    I’m sure you’ll get better. Good vibes your way.

    As for my weekend, I’ll just say one thing: tomorrow will be the LAST Saturday 12-hour class I’ll have this year, and any other year probably.

    Au revoir.

  • KJM, Doom Hunter General

    Please be well, my friend!!!! I have legit Major Depressive Disorder & PTSD among other things. Life can still be fun if you look after yourself and let others help!

  • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

    GOOD new Deafheaven. I didn’t feel Sunbather when it came out, but after hearing New Bermuda, I revisited it and now I love it too. Also; the weather here is colder, rainy, and full of foliage which is a nice change from all the damn sun.

    BAD I had gelato for lunch. So I’m gonna pay for that in the gym. Even though it gets me more money, I have to work another day of the week now.

    UGLY Listening to depressing “post” black metal really makes you reflect on your growing complexes and personal issues. I cri evrytiem and will die alone.

  • GOOD: Been playing music again with my old metal friends (we played through college but kinda gave up afterwards). New Slugdge, Deafheaven, Fit for an Autopsy are rocking my buns.
    BAD: Been practicing a new song my guitarist wrote for the last two weeks or so, and he decided to scrap it to make a new one from some of the parts. Feels bad man.
    UGLY: This colder weather. It’s already almost freezing in the mornings and I fucking hate it so much.

    • Scrimm

      Know the feeling on your bad, My drummer is like that when he writes stuff. Changed his two songs so much before we recorded them that we ended up having him play all the instruments. I still have a few parts to learn before we can jam them.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    GOOD: It’s Friday at 4:00 pm.

    • It’s 4:53.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    GOOD: Grinding coffee beans just before you make coffee. My coffee tastes damn good right now.
    BAD: Okay so my life is all-right overall, in that I can’t really remember a time where life was terrible or hard to get through. Of course there were tough times, though none that REALLY sucked. So it seems to me that it can’t be this way forever. It’s possible/likely that there will be a time where shit will be super tough and that really terrifies me.

    So that was my completely unnecessary therapy session bye.

  • Waynecro

    Dude, you’re totally right about Fridays. The last company I worked for actually had a policy for announcing layoffs on Fridays exclusively. Sorry to hear you’re not doing well; I hope the therapy, though painful, will prove helpful.

      On the bright side. Most marriages end in divorce. So you will get your buddy back. More than likely.

  • InfinityOfThoughts

    The Good: I don’t have to work the entire weekend!
    The Bad: money issues, problems with my band (can’t seem to get shit done)
    The Ugly: couple of health issues that are taking forever to get better. Every time I think k I’m fine, I get knocked down a peg.

  • RustyShackleford

    GOOD: Clutch.
    Bad: None. I was having a shitty day but now I feel like a goddamn boss just listening to Clutch.
    Ugly: Delicious roast beef sandwich for lunch makes for some stanky ass farts! Yep!

    • Boss the Ross

      The album is brilliant. Gave me goosebumps. What’s your favorite track, so far at least?

      • RustyShackleford

        Boss! My fave so far is A Quick Death In Texas. Everything I dig in a Clutch song. X-Ray Vision is also awesome, loved the video too!

        • Boss the Ross

          SO groovy, I also really dig the billy gibbons reference in the middle of the song.
          That video was bad ass.
          I’m really feeling Our Lady of Electric Light and Son of Virginia. Those vibed out songs just hit me hard man.

    Joe, if you ever want to get therapy over here you have housing, board and a large chunk of beer expenses already covered. If everything works out I’ll be in São Paulo next year which is a huge city with lots of shit to do.

      • KJM, Doom Hunter General

        Easily.

        • Boss the Ross

          And if your feeling extra crazy, use chocolate milk, its better than coffee.

    • more beer

      Here is something I learned living in Albuquerque. The Smiths chain of grocery stores does not carry Count Chocula, Boo Berry,or Frankenberry. The chain is owned by the Mormons. They refuse to sell these cereals. Because they feel there is satanic connotations with said sugary goodness.

      • KJM, Doom Hunter General

        • more beer

          Tell that to the Mormons.

  • Waynecro

    Good: Monster Madness on Cinemassacre.com.
    Bad: I have to spend $1,200 to have some big-ass bird of paradise trees removed from the side of my house. They’re starting to warp the neighbors’ fence. And something big enough to shake the trees and attract the dog’s attention is living in them.
    Ugly: Probably whatever’s living in those fucking trees. I have to try to critter-proof the house, because whatever is living in the trees now will be looking for a new home when the trees come down.

  • Bad: to resume it very quick… There was a malandro living in one of the rooms in which I live. It seems the guy broke up last week into the owner of the residence (he lives down stairs of my room) and the malandro tried to rob him. The owner haven’t told me anything yet, which sucks because I thought the malandro wasn’t living anymore there. Now I fear that the malandro return once again to the residence to rob.

    Also, this fucking weather is weird as fuck and now I have allergies. I never suffered of that. Also, I have been sweating a lot. At this rate I will have arepas in the armpits.

    Ugly: Malandros.

          That always sounds great in theory. But 75% of all bank robberies get solved. I had a chick who lived across the street from me rob a bank. She got like 1800 bucks. The dye packs exploded in her car. She was covered in red dye and so was the inside of her car. I saw her in her car she was crying and asked me to help her. There was nothing I could do. I wasn`t getting dragged into a class A felony. Well the cops rolled by her car and saw the red windows on her car and hauled her ass off to jail.

        • Gary the Dairy Fairy

          Same here. I didn’t find a good therapist until I was 18, and I went through a trove of pointless ones beforehand. One literally would just spend entire sessions showing me pictures of her granddaughter. It was a cute toddler but it didn’t help me overcome my problems.

          • Maik Beninton™

            Yeah, sending kids to therapy seems pointless, since they don’t really understand it.
            I started to talk about my life on the third one, and I consider the one I’m on right now to be much better.

          • Óðinn

            Makes sense. If you live in a regions where certain meats are available, you’re more likely to eat them.

            I stand corrected.

            I don’t know who Kim Davis hired as her publicist, but her husband’s attire seems a little too on the nose. They may want to dial it back a bit. Of course, Republcan ultra-douchebag Ted Cruz can’t pass up this photo op. 😉

            Kim Davis is owned by the Koch brothers, i dont think the name is without relevance. Ted Cruz perhals the next Koch brothers nominee, after Scunt Walker.

          • Óðinn

            That wouldn’t surprise me at all. It was nice to see Walker fail for once. Walker always seemed to succeed in spite of himself, up until now. I wouldn’t have thought he’d quit so soon.

          • BEARD OV GREAT DAWKINS

            Scott Walker should be in jail, and many of his aids are. Thats why they had to tamper with ballot machines to get him elected before/after the recall. Because hes in with the courrlt representatives

    As a political junkie, I’m always interested in the Friday night news dump. Holding the right-wing’s political feet to the fire takes vigilance, even on a Friday evening.

    Good for you Joe. I hope it yields positive results for you.

    The Good: albums to listen to. Chicken shawarma. Being back at a job I love and happen to be good at; I get to read books all day for a living. A roof over my head and food to eat. Lots of things, I suppose.

    The Bad: depression and grief. The two love to feed off one another. Plus lack of insurance, Medicaid being a bitch, and the looming prospect of running out of important meds.

    The Ugly: a certain author by the pseudonym Gini Koch, who has been befouling the earth for years on end now. Google her- you’ll see what I mean.

    Sincere sympathies sent out to all Toileteers facing difficulties right now- which is all of us, I suppose.

      Glad that work is going well for you. They are pretty easy with medicare here you can even apply online and not even have to got to an office. I`m gonna go to Moe`s for some wack show with a friend tomorrow. Feel free to come join us.

        Thanks man. I’m all signed up and everything, it’s just a matter of finding a doc that takes Medicaid patients and doesn’t have a six month waiting list.

        Have fun at the show! I’m tied up tonight with a late recording session but definitely will take a rain check for the next show. Who are you seeing tonight?

          It was some Psychobilly bands. I went with a friend because she couldn`t find anyone to go with her. Not really my thing but it was fun. Man there were a lot of beautiful women there. There are so many shows this month it`s going to be a busy month.

    Whatever it is, all my heart and best wishes towards a good outcome for you, DeJoe! The Toilet got me through a very dark period of my life earlier this year, and has brought me constant amusement and joy, and hoping that joy you’ve brought to all of us comes back your way full force. Mucho daimoku to you, dear friend!

    The good: Nice paycheck today, one of the guys who trained me got fired and I picked up all his hours, one of the trainers is a metalhead (and played ‘Peace Sells But Who’s Buying’ during our closing cleanup), and ordered my new MP3 player. I got free shipping by agreeing to Amazon Prime’s free trial. I have no fucking idea what that entails.

    The bad: Nothing so far. Rainy ass weather from Hurricane Joachin. How the fuck am I supposed to pronounce it’s name properly? Joe Auchin? Yo Aichin? Joe Achin? Clay Aiken? Joe Namath? Fuck if I know!

    The Ugly: Chanel Iman.

    The Good: Pathfinder night with the homeboys. Decided to hit up that Ghost concert next week so that will be fun, and I made a 96 on my Advanced Aerospace Structures and Materials midterm, so that is nice

    The Bad: My Pathfinder Dwarf dude is not in a good place physically and spiritually. Keep him in your thoughts.

    The Ugly: My Fundamentals of Aerodynamics test is not going to come back as well as the other, and these tests Monday are going to not be swell. Oh and Fall break is Thursday and Friday, which would be nice if I didnt already get friday off.

    The Also: Joe, I love you man. Who knows where on the internet I would be right now if it wasnt for you.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      You will enjoy Ghost a lot. Be sure and arrive on time to catch Purson! Vibes sent for your friend.

    As BS&T said, “You’ve made me so very happy, Im so glad you came into my life.”

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      For years I thought “Vehicle” was by BS&T because of it’s arrangement.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    I have a busy day today. I have work from 10 to 2 followed by my date. I’m so excited I can’t contain my excitement.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      Wear Depends. ^_^

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    RIP Aunt Antoinette. It won’t be the same without you around. My day just turned a little bleak because of this news.

    • KJM, Doom Hunter General

      My condolences.

    • Poopypanty’s Hulk Poop Salsa

      My condolences.

      You can still eat cake.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        That is true. She will be missed.

  • Super late to this party as usual but if you’re reading this Joe I feel you.
