It’s Friday. You best flush it out, son.

I’m gonna keep this brief because there’s a lot of music to see. It’s Fun Fun Fun Fest weekend in Austin and I plan on getting all up in that. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the annual festival. Starting initially as a tiny affair with nothing but small punk/metal and indie acts, it’s blown up to include megabig acts. Every year I think will be my last; too much EDM, not enough extreme music, but this will be my 9th year in attendance anyway. Check out the lineup below, y’all.

I’m going to do my best to see Watain and Mayhem Saturday night. Should I succeed, I will report back on all of the blood-soaked details and attempt to capture the horrified reactions of my lady friend.

Oh, right. It’s Flush It Friday, the post of the week in which we bitch about that which causes bitching, and fête the things what gotsta be fêted.

GOOD: Music n’ shit.
BAD: I am sick. I have been sick. I will probably continue to be sick until the Earth is smothered by the warm embrace of the sun. It’s annoying.
UGLY: Fallout 4 drops next week and I’ll never see any of you again : (

It’s your turn. Get it all off your chest and then try to have a little fun this weekend.

 

  • I think that it is really neat that you are going to see Mayhem with your lady friend Joe. Have a swell time.

    • Gonna try to get in! If the line is too long I guess we’ll have to go see Power Trip and mosh aggressively : (

      • Either way. You get to hear distorted guitars and drink beer.

      • Waynecro

        Coheed’s usually really good live, and the ladies seem to dig ’em.

      • more beer

        Power Trip is pretty good live I`ve seen them a couple of times.

        • They’re one of my favorite newer bands. They play Austin all the time and I always try to make it out.

          • more beer

            They are definitely a great alternative.

    • Lacertilian

      Pictured: Not Joe’s lady friend.

  • Ok… I’m just going to go ahead and say that it is fucking really awesomely strange that Tig Notaro is between Mayhem/Watain and Skinny Puppy on that poster.

  • Good: The new Tetragrammacide EP that just dropped. Absolutly barbaic and harsh! Total support for this band. Also beer.

    https://ironboneheadproductions.bandcamp.com/album/tetragrammacide-typhonian-wormholes-indecipherable-anti-structural-formul

    Bad: All the politics/politicians that are every-fucking-where. Fuck all of that poopy shit!!!

    Ugly: The new Tetragrammacide EP that just dropped.

    https://ironboneheadproductions.bandcamp.com/album/tetragrammacide-typhonian-wormholes-indecipherable-anti-structural-formul

    • Herr Schmitty

      Bad: My favorite political scandal right now is the one in your neck of the woods. +1 Pornographic E-Mail history!

  • I think Cult Leader played already but if they haven’t sell your soul and catch their set. Dem breakdowns go harder live then they do on record.

    Good: Nothing, it’s all bad this week
    Bad: My current job is driving me insane and I need a new one ASAP.
    Ugly: Me, tomorrow morning after too much alcohol consumption.

  • Herr Schmitty

    That lineup is… impressively schizophrenic. I’d def be down to see a number of those acts though, including ‘ole Schoolboy Q.

    Good: Life’s pretty good in general! Got my gift boxes shipped off the other day too, so they should get to their destinations early next week. Plus, as Joe mentioned: Fallout4 in just a few short days.
    Bad: I discovered that a manager at one of our sister offices was reported to HR because he treats numerous women in our company like shit; most recently my GF. Supposedly when HR came, they lectured some of the women (not including my GF) he’d verbally abused in ‘ways to avoid setting him off.’ No word on whether they told him he’s a fuckstick. Maybe I’ll have to instead.
    Ugly: Working for the family business and having your GF work there too. RELATIONSHIPS CAN BE STRAINED. Firmly on TeamGF.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Will you see Wu Tang Clan?

    • That’s the plan!

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Lucky! I’ve never been able to see them. Have fun.

      • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

        Hoping for more Tang than Wu or Clan, if ya catch my drift? huehuehue

      • Boss the Ross

        WU-TANG!

        it’s for the children.

      • more beer

        Tat ain`t nothin to fuck with.

  • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

    GOOD: It’s a bit boring, but nothing exciting. Didn’t have anything bad happen, so that’s good I guess. I’m saving money for once.

    BAD: My sleep schedule has been disrupted, so I’m all out of whack. Even coffee has failed to get me back on track. On the bright side, it’s curbed a bit of my neurotic side because I’m pooped and walking around like a semi-zombie.

    UGLY: Still procrastinating.. My god I want to write, but whatever forces at work in my dumb head are preventing me. All I’ve wrote is like three ideas down. Most of my ideas hit me when I’m showering before bed.

    PS: Buying a laptop at the end of the month. Computer nerds toileteers, I mostly use my computer for writing/internet/music. I want a program like GarageBand, would getting a Mac be logical? And what models for around 800-1200 would give me the best bang for my buck?

    • EsusMoose

      Not the most inclined but if you want garageband you’ll need a mac, might not get the shiniest, fastest or fanciest model but it’ll serve it’s purpose and should be reliable. Could probably save money by buying a windows laptop and then buying recording software but it’s really up to preference. Both will serve your purpose but if you’re looking for reliability a mac will probably have less chance of getting a bad product.

    • Your best bet is to go on Apple’s site and build a Mac so you can get an idea on pricing. Garage Band comes standard with whatever you buy but you probably want to max out your hard drive space and processor for performance.

    • Max

      Perhaps overthinking this, but my solution was to have two laptops. One I use for the internet, Toileteering, etc. It’s just a typical Windows-running thing straight off the retail shelf. The other I use for music recording, etc. It was custom-built by a guy who specializes in making computers perform optimally for audio applications by stripping out all the extraneous software, graphics, etc.

      In that situation, you can usually have whichever audio editing program you prefer, although such experts will usually have strong opinions about which programs they think behave best with which computers and hardware interfaces. They are pricey machines, but it’s worth tracking down such an expert and at least getting a quote.

      • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

        I was thinking of keeping the one I currently use as a porn only backup computer.

        I’m not too picky about fancy quality, I’m gonna be recording in an attic, so it’s gonna be a bit rawer. I wish I had enough for two like that though.

        • Max

          Well, it’s no so much about “rawness” – that’s really down to mic technique and mixing. It’s more about having a system that can handle the demands of audio data.

          Consumer computers aren’t really designed to absorb a constant, unbroken stream of data – which is exactly what an audio signal is. Plus, on any computer you’ve got a whole lot of software programs, internet connectivity, etc. all running at the one time, putting demands on the CPU that would otherwise enable you to record several tracks simultaneously for a longer time without any glitches.

          The role of the customization guys is to modify a computer to the point where it is basically just a digital audio portastudio that happens to look like an everyday laptop.

          • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

            When I said raw I mean shitty sounding lol. I was thinking of getting a Blue Yeti mic eventually too.

            I never considered all of that information, but I’m not that grand of a musician where I’m gonna need something decked out like that. I just wanna make some of my dumb ideas I’ve been sitting on. That and having a mic could mean I could just get an audio translating program so I just speak instead of typing to get my writing ideas down quicker or something.

  • EsusMoose

    Good: Fallout 4 soon, don’t have to do anything this weekend so tendies and drinks it is!
    Bad: Permanently tired, and had the fun time last weekend waking up from halloween with pieces of vomit around my room. Also fell down some stairs and slightly hurt most of my lower body.
    Ugly: Cleaning up that mess and having to play detective trying to find every piece.

    Have a good weekend or be like me and pretend to fuse with the furniture in my apartment

    • EsusMoose

      Oh other good thing! Binding of Isaac released its expansion this last week and I’m playing the shit out of it

      • Herr Schmitty

        Oh damn. I think I got BoI from PlayStation + but haven’t played it yet. It’s good?

        • EsusMoose

          I’ve always been a fan of it, it takes a bit to be good but the randomized runs and items you can get make it fun when stuff goes well. It’s a rouge-like game and individual runs can be between 0 to 70 minutes usually around 15-40 at most

      • I wasted about 8 hours this week with it.

        • EsusMoose

          I’ve put some amount of time in and will be putting more into it tonight.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    So, it’s Friday. That’s interesting.

  • Vote for Jeb

    Good: Temperatures are starting to drop. Probably going to make a fire this weekend and putter about in my slippers.
    Bad: The season finale of The Flash was dumb in a lot of ways.
    PS: “Rock Lobster” might be the best song ever written.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I wish he didn’t retire. He was awesome as was Christian but they’re both retired now.

          • Herr Schmitty

            I mean, I wish he was still around too, but he had those really bad spinal injuries, dude could die if he takes the wrong bump. I understand. Cool/funny dude.

            Christian, it seems, didn’t want to retire; they just made him.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            That’s a shame. I wish the Hardys would go back and since the Dudleys are already there I’d love to see one last epic as fuck TLC match between the Hardys, Dudleys and the New Day.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Didn’t one of the Dudleys die not too long ago?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            No. Bubba and D Von are currently in the WWE.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I was there for this Edge & Christian moment that totally reeks of awesomeness. Too bad so much of it is cut.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I already knew they weren’t allowed. I never really posted anything from it anyway.

          • I tell you hawat. I never really liked Family Guy, but I would watch it if it was on every once in a while. Now I can’t stand it and I believe it has to do with the whole TOH hatred for it. This is all fine and dandy with me by the way.

          • Vote for Jeb

            I liked it when I was younger. Then at some point it became dumb, and now I never want to watch it.

          • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

            Dude when that theme song comes on, I can’t find a remote or open a new tab fast enough.

          • Exactly man.

          • Hubert

            Haven’t watched it in years, but there were definitely some funny episodes,

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Same here. It gets pretty redundant after a while, especially with the flashbacks. But it definitely has some gems!

          • Maik Beninton™

            I can still laugh at the old episodes, lately it has been terrible and I stopped following.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I only watched it because the ex liked it. I haven’t watched it at all since we broke up.

          • I hardly watch any TV anymore but if Impractical Jokers happens to be on, I watch that because it brings many laughs.

          • CyberneticOrganism
          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Apparently I missed the day we all decided to hate Family Guy. I’m alright with that I guess. I used to watch it all the time but the last few (5? 6?) seasons have gone way too overboard with preachy-ness and Seth McFarlane’s personal politics. Still good for a chuckle every now and then though.
            And fuck 99% of Japanese anime. Only Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell, the original Hellsing, and Samurai Champloo are worth viewing. Oh, also Black Heaven, which is about a former metal guitarist who’s kidnapped by aliens to play guitar riffs in outer space as a superweapon against an enemy armada of other aliens in an intergalactic war of attrition.
            …yup. Look it up. Or don’t. Idgaf, it’s Friday.

            I’ve learned a lot of shit is cut out from character development and plots in anime, just like when movies stray from the story line of a book, or cut shit out to make it shorter. I prefer their comic book counterparts instead. You don’t have to worry about the weeab factor as much, either. Sometimes it’s cool to see a drawing become animated. Sometimes it’s not.

          • Birds can be crusties too I guess.

          • more beer

            Pigeons are a prime example of this.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            It’s funny. People see flocks of pigeons everywhere in the city and, for the most part, think nothing of it. You show them one small rat and they lose their fucking minds.

          • Vote for Jeb

            There are so many fat pigeons on campus. They hardly move out of your way too. They’ve feasted on the leavings of the young and have no fear of death.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Pigeons are NOTHING compared to seagulls, which are a nuisance around here. 20 times bigger, and even more diseases than pigeons.

          • more beer

            No shit. Even though they are basically rats with wings.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Exactly. They’re nasty and they carry germs just like rats.

          • more beer

            So disgusting. Plus they are everywhere.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Nope, that would be seagulls, or as we call them here, sea rats. Pretty sure it was just as bad when you were here in VA.

          • more beer

            But they are nowhere as nasty as pigeons.

    • I enjoyed Zombies on BLOPs2 but multiplayer was annoying. I was decent and could hold my own but people camping and other shitty behavior took all the fun out of it.

      • Waynecro

        The last time I played Zombies, some little kid kept sassing me for being crappy. This kid sounded like he couldn’t have been older than 10, yet I still wanted to kick him into traffic. Multiplayer’s fun when you don’t take it seriously. It’s mostly an excuse for me to talk to my brother and do something relatively mindless for a couple hours.

        • Definitely play Zombies solo. If people don’t know what they are doing then you’ll def get pissed. Always cool to play with people you know. Enjoy!

          • Waynecro

            I only know one person, and he isn’t buying the game because he’s too busy banging his new girlfriend. I’ll just have to continue ruining the gaming experience for strangers with my awful playing.

    Ugly: A friend of mine’s car was broken into last night while parked in his own driveway. Jacked the stereo and destroyed the center console. The person who did it is an aquaintence of one of his brothers, a brother whom is currently serving time in jail for various felony offenses (drugs). The guy randomly showed up to his house, hung out for a few min “catching up” with my friend about all the shady shit he’s been up to since my friend’s brother went to jail, and then finally got the hint that nobody wanted him there to begin with (dude’s reputation is shit, he’s a known thief and a tweaker). He was there maybe 15 min before he left. This morning, my friend gets in his car to go to work and sees that the radio’s been jacked and the console and dash all ripped apart. Fucking asshole. And the shit-head is a couch-surfer so there’s no way to find him. Fucking asswipe. I hate goddamn thieves, and my friend’s already going through some rough shit right now in his personal life, so it just makes it that much worse.

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            ^^^This. I live in a small-ish town in Texas, wherein a good 90% (I’m guessing) of the population is white. The criminal element is almost entirely white trash redneck thugs that either prowl (i.e. ride around the outskirts late at night looking for easy licks or scrap metal to steal) or deal hard drugs. The shit-head that jacked my friend’s stereo has already been in and out of jail several times and even currently has a couple of warrants for his arrest right now. Law enforcement has had their hands full lately because methamphetamine has become a real problem for the community over the past few years, as population growth and location (two major highways run straight through the town, highways used by cartels to traffic shit-tons of drugs in and out of the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area every day). So a police report wouldn’t really speed up his capture and arrest any more than the current warrants he already has. Still, the cops did get called and a report was made and the guy’s gonna have more charges when he eventually gets caught. I hope.

          • more beer

            I hope that douche bag does get caught. But I can guarantee eventually he will. Because he doesn`t sound like a master criminal. He is just another stupid tweeker. At least you are in Texas and they are pretty no nonsense. When they catch someone who has committed various crimes. So with any luck he we be a guest of the state for a while.

        Nope. This potoo has no romantic or sexual interests.

    Bad: got sniped on the amp in the last 5 seconds… By £2. And I want my FUCKING FREES BACK AAAAGH

    Ugly: my friend Alex sent me a video of a guy snorting a dead mouse. Pretty metal.

    • more beer

      Especially since mice spread Bubonic Plague.

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        The mouse was burnt to ashes first. I think that would have killed off any bacteria.

        • more beer

          Okay I thought maybe he just had really powerful nostrils.

      • School Of Hard Plops

        No, weed spreads the Bubonic Plague, remember?

        • more beer

          No it causes cancer.

    • Boss the Ross

      What kind of amp?

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        The valvestate.

        • Boss the Ross

          Ah, damn.
          How was the trip to Leeds?

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Didn’t go, as explained in my last Friday moan-a-gram.

          • Boss the Ross

            Sorry, forgot about that.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            I did however find a temporary fix for my bridge saddle problem

          • Boss the Ross

            Oh yeah? Do tell.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Took the saddle off the high E (which snapped and I can’t be arsed to buy a whole new set for a string I barely use) and jacked up the action on it. I’d tried this before but hadn’t realised you could change the saddle height with an Allen key.

          • Boss the Ross

            Right on, that’ll do it.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            I mean I’m still gonna buy a full set of stainless steel saddles for completion’s sake when they arrive at the shop. How much do you think the bridge affects sound?

          • Boss the Ross

            It will effect the way your strings vibrate, making them brighter or darker sounding.
            I have a set of Graphtech string savers on my strat and have not had any problem with stringsbreaking at the saddle points and the sound is good as well.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Yeah, I’ve been looking at the Schaller 3D6 and Hannes bridges. Once I get some other stuff sorted out I’ll definitely consider investing in a good bridge.

    • School Of Hard Plops

      Was that guy Keith Richards?

  • Boss the Ross

    Good- Gorak is seeing Blind Guardian tonight, let us rejoice for him. Also good, listening to Blind Guardian at work. Other than that my week has been pretty standard.

    Bad – Working all of this weekend, oh well.

    Ugly – i dunno

    • School Of Hard Plops

      They put on an excellent live show! Saw them a few years ago.

      • Boss the Ross

        Right on! I’m really looking forward to it.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    GOOD: It’s Friday at 4:29 pm.

    BAD: see below.

    UGLY: I need to clean my oven tomorrow, good lord.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        I finished up rewatching it McNulty, and loved every second of it.

        • *looks around nervously* i’m still on season 4. The Affair somehow lodged its way into my queue. and it SLAYS

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            My girlfriend said that was good. Yo Jimmy just tell me you are watching or will at some point be watching The Leftovers.

          • i have only heard of that a few times in passing, i will check it out. am i gonna be hooked? i bet i will!

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            I thought the first season was good, and five weeks into the second season each week it comes on I’m like how can this show be this fucking good?

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Its hard to reconsile McNuttys persona and his RL commitment

          • d00d i’ve got more time than i know how to use

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            I wish i had that problem

          • not me. i miss drinking away my free time

          • more beer

            Can`t you just smoke a lot of herb instead?

          • and how!

          • more beer

            So that sounds like a good plan.

          • I used to have too much free time. Then there was the toilet.

          • more beer

            Yes but for this you are loved far and wide!

          • McNulty’s last post was a lot of fun for me to read! I’m trying to convince him to use his free time to write.

          • more beer

            I don`t want to mess that up. I`ve liked everything he has written.

          • Waynecro

            When I had to quit drinking, I read A Small Treatise on the Great Virtues by Andre Compte-Sponville. It kills time, and it’s a great, thought-provoking read. I’ve read it many times since then. In fact, I’m reading it right now.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            *Reads it in 2 days
            *Reading is a good virtue

          • Waynecro

            Unless it crosses the line into vice. Shit can do that. It’s Aristotelian.

    • School Of Hard Plops

      Thanks for reminding me to order that from the library!

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Shit yeah. I hope you love it as much as I have.

        • School Of Hard Plops

          I finally started watching Breaking Bad last week, and sat through a season and a half of it in one night. Fucking loving it!

  • BEARD-SPLITTER

    The good: deafheaven and tribulation this weekend. Books came in today, after finishing the latest Robin Hobb in 2 days(750pgs).

    The bad: work tomorrow

    The ugly: so i get my work van back, only to get it stuck and then hit a tree attempting to get it out this morning. Lucky to not be fired.

    • Boss the Ross

      Nice shows, sorry to hear about the van

      • BEARD-SPLITTER

        I went in to show my boss and he said, “What are you talking about, its always looked like this,” and walked away.

        #jobsecurity

        Also, thanks to the polite redneck and little mexican dude that pulled me out with the bobcat, if youre out there

        And derpheaven/tribulation same ticket

        • Boss the Ross

          Hell yes! That there is awesome.

      • BEARD-SPLITTER

        Would drive/10

  • i got a big ole’ nostalgia boner from seeing “Charlatans UK” in that lineup. anyone else ever big into Britpop bands like them?
    no complaints in life, you guise rule

    • BEARD-SPLITTER

      No, but i am a lover of britlit and britcoms

      • did you just make those up?

        • BEARD-SPLITTER

          Kinda?

          • Waynecro

            I’m going to start using “Britlit.”

          • i’m going to start using britcoins.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            There’s a block-chain joke in there somewhere.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Monty Python, Blackadder, and Horrible Histories FTW.

          Im still a fanboy of Sherlock. I also watch a metric ton of Top Gear and the Graham Norton Show

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Top Gear >>>>>>

        • School Of Hard Plops

          Can’t forget Young Ones and Absolutely Fabulous.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’ve seen both of those series about a million times.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Ever check out Wallander?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Not yet.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Pretty good detective show. Varg Veum is another good one, but you’ll have to sit through the Norwegian subtitles. Pretty gruesome too if you get the uncensored DVD.

        • BEARD-SPLITTER

          Top Gear, Doctor Who, Ripper Street, Sherlock, LUTHER, even Graham Norton Show is hilarious

          • Based Potoo

            Top Gear, Doctor Who, Sherlock and Graham Norton Show suck.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Is there any good english language finnish tv? Or any good subtitled stuff

          • Based Potoo

            A lot of good stuff, yes, but can’t find subtitled stuff.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Toss me at least one good Finnish movie with English subtitles. I got time enough tonight.

          • Based Potoo

            I don’t think there are. At least I haven’t found any.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Odd. I figured Finland of all places would have at least a couple good dramas, or something in the Criterion Collection.

          • Based Potoo

            There are good shows, but no subtitled ones.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Weird.

          • Based Potoo

            There really isn’t demand for subtitled Finnish shows. No one cares about Finland.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Well, except for the metal………….. and lawn gnomes.

          • Based Potoo

            We don’t have many lawn gnomes. Where’d you pull that out off?

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Because everything revolves around elves and trolls there, including the music. Especially the music!

        • Boss the Ross

          Fawlty Towers.

        • Lacertilian

          add Nathan Barley, Brass Eye, Boosh, Snuff Box, IT Crowd and many more.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            IT Crowd is a good one, much more of a genuine geek/nerd comedy than Big Bang Theory.

        • Based Potoo

          QI, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Keeping Up Appearances, Allo Allo

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Keeping Up Appearances is a ‘Mom’ show, much like Are You Being Served. However, both are still 10x funnier than your average US sitcom.

          • School Of Hard Plops

            You’d probably love Varg Veum. Tried finding the shows in Finnish, and Youtube is a bitch about finding it in English subtitles, but hopefully you can understand Norwegian a little.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIGbheYS9bE

      • School Of Hard Plops

        And bitpop (yes, there is such a thing)?

        • BEARD-SPLITTER
          • School Of Hard Plops

            I still have a very rare promo of ‘Enarc’ from years and years back, before Component Records closed their doors.

          • School Of Hard Plops
          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Very sexy. Were prolly the only two here that enjoy em

          • School Of Hard Plops

            And a handful that even heard them. I got it on promo from Component, and they shut down a few months later. Also have a very limited (50 copies) copy of Gridlock’s ‘Traces Live’ that they sent me. I like their first two CDs better, but still damn good stuff and cool guys.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Im fairly certain Bitcrush is still active

          • School Of Hard Plops

            Not sure. I just know their label shut down. That was ages ago.

    • School Of Hard Plops

      Loved ’em back in the day, and loves me some britpop. Especially where it started blending with the shoegaze scene.

  • School Of Hard Plops

    L7 and Babes In Toyland are back together?!!? I’d definitely check that out, plus Skinny Puppy, Chvrches, Peaches and Bomba Estereo.

    The good: Chill week. Got another music interview lined up, and should hopefully have that done and sent over to them by Monday.
    The Bad: Nothing so far, just playing a waiting game with calls back from the job hunt.

      How long will you be there for?

    Good: Finally getting some much deserved vacation time.
    “Bad”: Preparing to move to Japan. Also, it’s gonna suck not being able to go to concerts as often as I do in the states.

    Ugly: Much vacation time will consist of driving cross country from the Carolinas to the dusty desert southwest. Oh, had a few too many drinks last night and this happened. Pic related.

          New Mexico? I lived in Albuquerque for about 10 years.

          • killvps

            Not in ABQ, a little bit further west. ABQ is alright, Taos is the place to be IMHO.

          • more beer

            Taos is nice I`ve been there. But there is more work in Albuquerque. But red or green is certainly a New Mexico question.
