¿QUÉ OS CONTÁIS, OH HABITANTES DEL RETRETE DEL AVERNO?

Ah, time is ams fickles mistress(s). It seems like just yesterday I was taking my Spañard’s equivalent of an SAT (or PAU, because that’s just how much we love our finest baskeball export) and trying not to give too much thought to the mind-crippling uncertainty which lay in store for me at summer’s end. Come September I was starting college, living on my own and away from my family for the first time ever, in a city bigger than my own with a whopping total of zero familiar faces anywhere to be found. Yet here I am exactly four years later, one of very few alive to tell the tale of the Engineer: a tale equal parts procrastination, hard work and hopeless despair (kinda).

At any rate, it is time once again for a weird summer in which I don’t really know what will come next for me. On this occasion though it’s a lot less daunting than the last time around, because in my years at college I’ve learned a lot both in and out of the classroom. I’m actually excited for September because I’m starting my Master’s degree, and I’m always up for a good challenge. But before that I have in front of me what are undoubtedly the busiest three months I’ve had lined up in my entire life. Read on…

Bp9LvVLIUAA5Ub6--644x362

I googled “Spanish Engineer” and this came up. I have nothing further to add here.


-GOOD: As always, the consistently good thing in my life is music. In two weeks I will be enjoying the formerly fresh air of Western France soured by 150,000 other smelly metalheads at Hellfest Open Air. This is the 10th edition of the festival and the fifth that I’ve attended in a row since finishing High School, and as always the lineup is incredibly diverse. Count on a fifteen part epic series recanting my adventures when I get back.

-BAD: Finishing my end-of-undergrad project (hereby known to you all as TFG) is turning into a real dolor de muelas. You know that rule that says that 80% of the work is usually done in 20% of the time? Yeah, that’s real and it bloooooooows. I’ve been putting the finishing touches on it for over a week and it seems like I’m never going to finish the damn thing, even though everything important is already written. I hate Word now more than ever. I can’t wait to turn it on the 15th and go stright to Hellfest.

-UGLY: My overall physical appearence when I get home the Monday after the fest. Oh yeah, and the fact that I have to defend my TFG in front of two separate tribunals on Tuesday and Wednesday. Spacing things out is for betas, brah.

-GOOD: After I’m officialy done with school I have a really cool string of, again, mostly music related stuff lined up: I’m going to Be Prog, My Friend festival in Barcelona, I have a show for a battle of the bands-type contest lined up with one of my bands, and another show with a different band opening up for an American Death/Grind band signed to Relapse who just released an awesome album and whose name starts with the letter M. Talk about gigs just falling into your lap from out of nowhere, I am beyond stoked for this and won’t believe it until it happens because…

-BAD: I’ve also been tasked with booking/organizing said show. It’s the first time I do something of this (relative) magnitude, and to make it reeeeally special the dudes at the local squat house are being extra lazy and not giving me a straight answer on the availability of the date. They probably ran out of speed or cocaine and just need more before they can answer me, but still. Yet another egg to the stress basket.

-UGLY: I’ve been recording, editing mixing and everything-ing my non-grind band’s debut EP for a couple of months now, and I’ve just had to postpone doing anything more with it until July. I’m a super anal perfectionist when it comes to this stuff, and since I don’t have any sort of formal training and don’t know what the fuck I’m doing, it takes me forever to do it. On top of that, I’m moving out of the place where I’ve spent the last four years and am moving into someplace with different people because the relationships with the ones I’ve been living with have deteriorated to an unrecoverable point. So I’m stuck with having to find a place before August because…

-GOOD: I’m going on an RV trip through Europe with some of my friends from college. We’re hitting France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Austria, Germany and Switzerland, stopping at natural parks, lakes and whatnot along the way. I’ve never been to any of those countries other than France (barely) so I think it’s going to be really fun and totally worth anything sub-par…

-BAD: Driving. I hate it, but I do it because I have to. I don’t consider myself a “good” driver by any strech of the word, but I’ve had my license for two years and haven’t screwed up majorly. Thing is we all are going to have to take turns driving the RV doing pretty crazy hours (all during daylight) because we’re doing the entire trip in a week, and I am really, really scared about doing it. But if I stopped doing stuff because I was scared, I’d never do anything at all…

-UGLY: The prospect of love on said trip. Without getting into too much detail, I’m not a man prone to “make a move” on anyone, ever. But I feel a new type of courage coming on, and I’m going to try something outside of my comfort zone (which is very, very limited). At any rate it’ll be… interesting, so wish me luck.

-GOOD: After the best trip to Europe ever/the merciless death of all my hopes and dreams, I’m coming to the States for a few weeks!! Mostly just visiting family and going to a few cool shows (Alice in Chains maddafakka!!!!), but if any of you terlet brolos happen to be in or around Harrisburg PA, hit me up. If you can reach me of course…

-BAD: The place where I’m staying at doesn’t have any sort of telecom connection set up. Super basic cable and that’s it. I have to figure out a way to get an unlimited data plan of some sort because having 1 GB a week last year was HARD. I’ll be forced to enjoy the green of Pennsylvania instead of staring at a screen all day. UGH.

-UGLY: Once again, my body when I get back home to Spain. Half the fun of going to Estados Unidos for me is FOOD, and unfortunately the foods that taste more like freedom are the ones that are probably the worst for me: golden oreos, pretzel rolls, vanilla coke… the list is infinite. I’m really going to try to pace myself and get more exercise when I’m over this year, because just the fact that I drive everywhere instead of walking is bad. Wish me luck, again.


Anyway, that’s it for me. Off to try and relax as much as I can this weekend because I might have to pull an all-nighter or two next weekend to finish the neverending TFG. Till next time, flushers, groove out on this lovely (and REALLY HOT where I live) Friday.

    Good: I should have a Hells Headbangers order waiting in front of my door. I got the new Deathhammer, NOCTURNAL BLOOD – Devastated Graves – The Morbid Celebration, Venom patch, Bulldozer patch, and a Disma embroidered back patch for above my Deathcrush back patch. Also, my Dad is going to be up for the weekend which is rad. Beer and rock n roll!

    Bad: My car is being a piece of fuck. I think one of the bearings needs replaced. Cars are a like a flame thrower to dollar bills. PSU students, who can’t drive are also a “BAD”.

    Ugly: Shitting like crazy today. Not the fun kinda shits either.

  • Alucard, Fuckmothering Vampire

    I am jealous of you going to Hellfest, I would have sex with that lineup, not kidding.
    The Good: I finished all of my exams on Monday, and Fallout 4 was announced on Wednesday. I hope its more like New Vegas, as I prefer that game to 3.
    The Bad: The last exam was Computing, and it was shitty and I probably failed because fuck my Computing tutor. Also, I’m back at college on Monday, which means I’ll be encountering arseholes again, so more urges to kill.
    The Ugly: My transition between Oli Sykes and Alucard. It wasn’t pretty.

  • Thumbs up: Going to two shows tonight. Going full on Ricky.
    Thumbs down: Women troubles.
    Ugly: Scheduled a colonoscopy this morning. It sounds like a horrible time.

    • That’s a paddlin’

      Colonoscopy isn’t a bad thing, if they drug you good beforehand.

    • old_man_doom

      Major bummer on the women troubles. Just eat some chicken fingers, get drunk, and see where the night takes ya

      • Howard Dean

        And play some blues music with the man in the chair!

    • Tyree

      Think of me when you are drinking those fine golden beers. I’ll be thinking of you while I do the same. I like thinking of other men who are drinking beer in other states. It’s not creepy, it’s just really fucking creepy. I call it “Bro-ing”. I will think of all of you men and some of you ladies because that’s who I am and that’s who I care about.

        I’m picking up my crazy buddy Tanner (the guy we told ya about while chugging PBR’s in the hotel who’s missing part of his skull) so he can get a haircut from my wife. I suspect we will be stopping at the LB to grab some suds before I get home. BEER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I want to go to one of those colon cleanser places. Supposedly doing that on the regular is great for your pooper.

      • Hahaha, I don’t think I’ve heard of that before. Got a long family history of colon cancer so it’s past time to go get checked out.

        • It was in some whistle blower book I read a couple years ago. Can’t remember the name unfortunately but it talked about the best ways to live a healthy lifestyle.

        • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

          They have them. John Balance (Coil) and Janet Jackson were actually big on those.

      • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

        I think they have a few of those over in Boystown (Chicago). At least that’s what they told me. They didn’t tell me the part about me waking up behind a dumpster with my pants around my ankles and not being able to walk straight for the next week.

    • Tyree

      Ever have your prostate checked? No fun.

      • Once. I had a prostate infection at the time. Wanted 2 cry.

        • Tyree

          Ooof. Sounds painful. Luckily I’ve never had a prostate infection.

        • Dagon

          Holy shit. Prostatitis is no joke, bruh. Damn.

  • Good: I have had fucking nothing to do since graduating. I’ve been passing the time by playing The Witcher 3 and watching increasingly strange and disturbing films.

    Bad: I’m really nervous about finally living on my own this August. I’ll be transferring to a full university (Appalachian State) where I will be working on a major in creative writing and a major in religious studies. I am going to be living in an apartment with my friend. I won’t be without a familiar face but, I still am going to miss my parents and (sadly) even more my dogs. Who wouldn’t want to see this face every day?

    • Tyree

      What strange and disturbing films have you been watching?

      • I started off by watching Mountain of the Cannibal God, Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox 1 and 2, and Devil Hunter. Last night I watched It Follows which was wonderfully creepy and was very John Carpenter-esque. Several weeks ago I watched A Serbian Film. That was pretty fucked up though I honestly found it interesting. Tried to watch the Human Centipede but I stopped because it just seemed stupid and trying to be edgy. I finally watched the Hostel movies. Pretty gruesome scenes in those. Most of the other stuff is more ’80s action. Rewatched the Conan movies (for about the 100th time). Watched all three Mad Max films for the first time – loved them – then saw the new one and liked it. I also watched Beastmaster, a fantasy movie directed by the dude who made Phantasm.

        • HC1 isn’t too bad, it’s tongue-in-cheek. HC2 is an abomination.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            They’re making a third one. I’d rather not speak of that abomination that was called HC2. The third one has Bree Olson in it. Don’t Google her at work because she does NSFW things.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Kevin Nash the Pornstar Expert.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            I’m not an expert on that kind of entertainment. I just know of her. Do you really think I would be into that?

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys
          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys
          • Sir Tapir the Based

            There are two types of men: those who admit they watch porn and dirty damn liars!

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            I don’t want to admit it but it may be true.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            She’s sorta famous for being one of Charlie Sheen’s Goddesses.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Who is Charlie Sheen?

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            The warlock from ‘Platoon’.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            What’s ‘Platoon’?

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            A very dirty Finnish word for what they do to tapirs in the local saunas.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            Tapirs are feared in the Finnish culture. They say we’re ill omens. They believe that Tapirs will bring forth the end of the world.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            The rest of the world think tapirs are good omens, best served with some marinade and a side of steak fries and a choice of soup or salad.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            She’s sorta famous for being one of Charlie Sheen’s Goddesses.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            Pfffffffffffft, she can’t hold a candle to Sasha Grey in the NSFW department! Ummmmmm, so I’ve heard…….

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            Pfffffffffffft, she can’t hold a candle to Sasha Grey in the NSFW department! Ummmmmm, so I’ve heard…….

          • You’ve got that backwards, buddy.

          • I didn’t even know there was a HC2. It definitely isn’t a film that warrants a sequel. I liked it a lot, it was depraved, but it really only needs one film.

          • Sir Tapir the Based

            I believe there’s gonna be a third one as well.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            There’s a third one on the way.

          • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

            HC2 completely did away with any plot whatsoever and just went for maximum gross out. At least HC1 kinda sorta had a plot, as ridiculous as it was.

        • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

          LMAO, I remember Beastmaster and even the TV series as a kid! Awwwwwwwwwwww the classics!

          If you want gruesome, try Blood Sucking Freaks or Philosophy Of A Knife. Both are on Youtube.

    • Good luck on the Creative Writing front, man. Writing is amazing/a total pain in the ass.

      • Thanks! Writing is certainly something that is great when your brain is working well and a complete pain when you just want to sleep.

  • Good: My back is fucked so I’m off work for the next four days–at the very least. This = plenty of free time to squander on the Toilet while recharging the ol’ jackoff crystals.

    Bad: My back is fucked so I probably shouldn’t go bowling or engage in sexual intercourse or wrestle my cat.

    Ugly: Me bowling or engaged in sexual intercourse, but not wrestling my cat because that shit is cvte as fvck.

    • old_man_doom

      Man, i fucking miss my cat. She is kvlt as fvck

      • Where is she? Did you name her something kvlt like Witchgrinder?

        • old_man_doom

          She is at my parents’ house. They call her Mia, but I call her Glaberus Kitteus Coriolanus.

        • J.R.

          The Lady and I want a munchkin named Maximilian, but Witchgrinder might be my new favorite.

    • Kevin Nash & Friends

      Awwwww. It’s so adorable.

  • old_man_doom

    Congrats, Moshoff. I’m in the same boat as you: graduating college after four years, not sure where i’m going after the summer, hopefully grad school (waiting on acceptance). The one thing we don’t need are people constantly asking, “So, what are going to do with your life?” How the fuck should i know? I’m new at at this whole adult thing.
    Good: I do, however, have a teaching job in August. That’ll be fun. Also, NEW AHAB! SAIL AND KILL
    Bad: Aforementioned graduation
    Ugly: Getting tested for strep today since i have a gnarly sore throat

        homosexuality–is number 11–according to masonic/kabbalah sex traditions
        and straight sex is number 10—then masturbation is number 9

        according to ancient sex masters–homosexuality is not the same as “the meeting of man and woman”–but a completely different thing—-more akin to an act of power over another—-not to say it is “bad”—but an acceptance of it—for what it is —–“something different” than sex—
        many prefer homosexuality– more than man/woman sex—quite honorably
        —-
        u.n. media misrepresent homosex as being the same thing as –“sex’
        due to p.c population control agenda—

  • the good: That dude up there, that Spanish Engineer has me SPRUNG!
    bad: boners at work
    ugly: my shorts don’t have a very good waistband for tucking said sprung

  • Nothing good, bad or ugly for me this week. I think I just read this post x 3. That new Maruta album is pretty damn fantastic.

    • are we to believe that is for whom Moshito will be opening?

      • If I had to bet money, I’d say I’m 100% correct on Maruta.

        • MoshOff

          Still working out the detalis, but you are correct.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    Good: That NBA finals game last night. Holy shit.

    Bad: My obnoxious friends from Northern California who insist that they’ve been die hard Warriors fans their entire lives, yet have never worn a single piece of Warriors gear before this season.

    Ugly: This fucking bat…

    • Kevin Nash & Friends

      That bat scares me.

    • Stealing CyberneticOrganism’s thunder: Gah!

    • JW(E)G

      I am definitely appreciative that I can only see the top half of this bat given the way Disqus formats long posts, but also probably imagining something more horrible than the reality of it.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    Good: My date went well, I got my paycheck

    Bad: none

  • Dagon

    Trabajo de Final De Grau? Mine is TCC – trabalho de conclusão de curso.

    I’m going to imitate Joe:
    Thumbs up: Going to a “BBQ” in a few. Free beer.
    Thumbs down: I fell asleep at the wheel two nights ago (sober, mind you) and fell in a ditch. I’ll be 20 days with no car and will be set back by quite a few BRLs. I’m going to sell some stuff to cover for that.

    • Shit dude. I’m glad you’re OK. Fuuuuuck.

      • Dagon

        Thanks, man. Cab drivers are my friends now.

    • The W.

      Dang! I’m glad to hear you’re okay. Take the safety guy’s advice. Don’t drive when you’re exhausted.

      • Dagon

        I will start taking cabs for late night outs. The most terrifying thing was waking up due to the noise. I could have hurt someone, and myself. Good thing there was no one on the street.

        • The W.

          I’d be so devastated if anything happened to you. Serious.

          • Dagon

            I would be if anything happened to you, man. Glad we’re all good. I learned a lesson, and can be grateful that the only setback is financial.

    • MoshOff

      Oh I will. And will report back if am in one piece.

  • CT-12

    The good: It’s me and my gf’s 6th year anniversary (yeah, I think that’s right, I’ll just wait for her to say it so I don’t look like an idiot), so we’re going to a Mariners game tonight and AirBNB-ing in Seattle. Gonna get some sweet gifts, probably check out some more areas where Twin Peaks was filmed, hit up some sweet record stores, etc, etc. Should be fun.

    The bad: Just as I’m starting to get over my cold from earlier this week, my mouth starts fucking around and deciding it wants to hurt like fucking hell for no apparent reason. Just gonna keep popping ibuprofen and bare the pain until next week rolls around.

    The ugly: My wallet next week (my dental insurance only covers preventative care, sonuvabitch)

    • JW(E)G

      If she gets mad at you for forgetting the exact year, point her to this page and that you listed it as a ‘good’ thing before you thought of anything else.

      That ought to win (back) some points. right?

      • CT-12

        Hahahaha, I hope so man!

  • JW(E)G

    GOOD: I’m pleased that I can finally say I actually saw a band that’s currently on a prominent (if not ‘major’) metal label repeatedly long before that hookup. It’s great for Unleash the Archers, who’ve got just enough cheese-powered essence to attract Napalm Records, but still manage to exude a seriousness that isn’t out of character or place either.

    It’s BAD for me though, because I doubt NR will allow them ever to play their true hometown (Vancouver is just where they had to go to be noticed) ever again. It’s too small a market for most internationally-focused orgs to take seriously what with that larger market right “there” next door.

    Other BAD made GOOD:

    Recall that late last year I got the TovH keyed into a then-recent Kickstarter campaign to support UK band ‘Spires’ then-upcoming album. There was even a This Toilet Tuesday segment on release day. Well, something odd happened and my physical copy of their album(s – because I paid for the previous EP and LP too) vanished in the international mail, a fact I only began to suspect in April. This last week, I contacted the band via their site and Paul (being the awesome dude he is) and I arranged so that he would resend the whole package – with signatures redone.

    In recognition of that generosity I’m fully intending a full discography ‘review’ and profile of the band, with reflections on the whole Kickstarter thing. I have no timeline for completion since mail from the UK can take anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks thanks to customs hold ups, but obviously the TovH will be the first – if not only – site that’ll get my draft version.

    Rumours of another album this year have surfaced though, so I might ask them about that first…

    No ‘UGLY’ this week (again).

  • Guacamole Jim

    Good: Off to a birthday party tonight at Steel Wheels, Edmonton’s best little Korean pub.

    Bad: I’ve been sleeping like shit, so I’ve been exhausted to the point of falling asleep at work every day.

    Ugly: Took a deuce earlier, and that shit wouldn’t stop wiping!! It was like a damn marker was in my butt.

    Good: summer vacation is 10/10. Got my Keinuva Lahna reissue and shirt.
    Bad: I ate some bad food and now my tummy is not my friend. Nightwish will be playing live near me tomorrow.
    Ugly: *vomits*

    • Lacertilian

      Those bloody Tapirs will eat anything

  • I just want to say:

    Good luck to Moshito.

    Hope you’re having fun this weekend.

    I will finish these two seminars in the Master, which mean I will sleep until turn into coma this weekend.

    Stay Toilet!

    GOOD: FRIDAY, that means BEER!
    BAD: Gotta go in to work Saturday to make up hours for the upcoming company summer shutdown, don’t have enough vacation hours to cover
    UGLY: How I will likely feel getting up tomorrow to go into work.

    • sweetooth0

      Just realized there is a metal show tonight, so the GOOD just got better.

      DOOMAGEDDON: Hoopsnake, Lavagoat, Chronobot and a filthy crust/grind band called Grimace!

      YEAH!!

  • the not ugly (RFI):

    • MoshOff

      Is that Hilary Duff?? Oy!!

  • Disgustache

    GOOD: Get to see a show tonight, and hang out with my hot ass woman. Plus I’ll get to play a shitload of video games and hopefully some Magic (I cast shield to deflect incoming flung shit from you plebs). Not to mention long bike rides and the UEFA championship game.
    BAD: The band I have to see is my girlfriend’s brother in law, and they are kind of a Gogol Bordello rip off.
    UGLY: I forgot to shave the last few days, and the pathetic excuse for my nonexistent facial hair looks worse than Mike Tyson’s face blaster.

    • Hear that? That’s the sound of my rabbit-like shit pellets raining down on your pansy-ass imaginary magical shield of geekness. (My word, this place is full of nerds.)

    Good: might go catch Kingsman with my Daddy. Lady JR got that hospital job she interviewed for, so that is exciting.

    Bad: too much homework due too soon.

    Ugly: today is supposed to be my chill day (as in, video game playing day) but I have exercised, ran errands, really feeling a nap here soon and might see this movie. So. Farewell Witcher. I’ll get back to you eventually

    • Kingsman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      • Lacertilian

        Way too many >>> there Jimbro

  • INDUBITABEARD

    Mmmmmmmgood: Aforementioned 2 dollar raise and a new company car. Sweet fucking cold cuts for home made subs tonight. And a make your own six-pack with a beer or two I haven’t had in a while.

    errrrrrrrrbad: Fourth straight saturday working in a row tomorrow. In-shop, though, so not quite as bad.

    yaaaaaaugly: one of you guys is really ugly, i’m sure of it.

    • J.R.

      Sure ain’t me. I look like a beautiful man person.

    • Sir Tapir the Based

      I’m guilty as charged.

    • KJM

      SPOILER ALERT: It’s the tapir.

  • GOOD: Fallout 4 announced.

    BAD & UGLY: Lacking the motivation to do anything.

  • KJM

    GOOD: Chilling out with some Cherry Pie kush and Wo Fat waiting for some hot tendies to finish cooking, deciding what to watch later.
    BAD: Nothing really, same old life. I enjoy what I get to enjoy and I deal with the shit as I always do.
    OTHER: Rush in 2 1/2 weeks!

    • FUKKBEARD

      “Be a trve baller, like your friend with the beard, and watch Star Trek: TNG,” says the faint echo. Your breathing becomes rhythmic, flashes of the holodeck and Captain Picard astride his gelding flood before your trembling vision. “Picard,” the voice repeats into eternity.

      • KJM

        That’s some good stuff.

    • have you seen Moon? that’s a cool, short sci-fi

    • Lacertilian

      Cherry Pie Kush sounds amazing. I wish we had legal here so I could know what strains I’m ripping through

      • KJM

        It’s not legal in Massachusetts yet. It’s just a lot less hostile to casual users. It’ll more than likely be legal here by the end of next year.

  • KJM

    I would be loving life if even one days worth of that Hellfest lineup came to the New England area.

  • Actiondonkey

    The Good: Started my new awesome job in Tampa. It rules and the money is great.

    The Bad: Job is long hours during the day – no more time for the toilet 🙁

    The Great: Got my early Father’s day present – a sealed vinyl of WOY’s Green 4. This is honestly one of my most prized possessions now. Can’t wait to spin it!

    • FUKKBEARD

      WHOAA, very jealous.

      • Actiondonkey

        I know man, they’re so scarce now I almost didn’t want to open it but then what’s the point of having it? Not like I’d ever resell it…

        • FUKKBEARD

          Is the vinyl colored? All mine are open, of course, but you always have the instinct to protect ’em.

          • Actiondonkey

            It’s colored, not sure if it’s called the blood splatter or shards of love edition. Was it JAG who posted a badass looking vinyl of Woods 4 a few months back on the ‘Finality’ post about WOY? Want to say it was an extremely limited greenish color but it was gifted directly from Gold’s mom if memory serves.

          • FUKKBEARD

            I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I’ll be forever shamed that I didn’t buy ’em when they were selling everything after his death.

          • Actiondonkey

            Yeah I remember you saying that. Unfortunately I didn’t find WOY until about a year after he died. Otherwise I’d probably have a beanie to throw your way.

    • J.R.

      I read that as “I got my father a WoY vinyl”.
      I was jealous of your Metal Dad there for a minute.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    So, I asked my lady friend if she’d like to go on another date. I’ll see if she responds when I wake up tomorrow.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Good: It’s the weekend, which means a couple of proper late nights drinking and listening to music. I’m a night owl, I don’t like that in the week 1.30 is the absolute latest I can go to bed. Lot’s of listening to music, lots of reading my book (Boxer Beetle, about a gay Jewish boxer, a eugenicist aristo and a collector of Nazi memorabilia). Recently got Bronson and Inglourious Basterds, may watch one of those. Chill times.

    Bad: Manuscript filing. At work we used to keep all the manuscripts we got sent, we now have very little space and a lot of useless shit, so now when we get manuscripts we only keep one for each book. Sorting between several different for one book can be easy, but not if you’re a big nerd, because if you are you wind up spending a long time poring over them trying to figure out which is best to keep (some have actual author corrections, some have proofreader, some translator etc., few are actually properly labelled and our companies haven’t told us which is actually best). Also bad, my colleague has lost her cat, and its making her quite sad. Looks like a nice critter and we’re all hoping it’ll be back soon. Also also bad, I seem to have lost my joy in cinema. I enjoyed Mad Max: Fury Road, but that’s about the only thing that’s really inspired me in months (and even then I feel like I’ll be forgetting it/not liking it near as much on a second viewing), otherwise I haven’t seen a great shocker or anything too good and weird or disturbing since December, or a straight up really good serious film in longer. And I don’t even feel like I have the energy, just like I can’t really be arsed, and its sad because I used to have loads of energy when it came to the movies.

    • KJM

      I used to go out to the movies at least once a week, now I’m lucky if I care enough to go once a year. A lot of it is due to paying $8-10 a pop for what used to cost $4-6. Why pay that much when I can just wait for Netflix?

  • KJU’s Dancing Testicle Teethys

    Good: Pretty chill week once again, and finally caught up on all of Bizarre Foods, and kinda sorta started getting my CDs and DVDs organized.
    Bad: Computer crashed, and Toshiba’s customer service (who love to try getting you into paying that fucking $39 fee for over the phone shit) is about as useful as Viagra for a eunuch. Anywho, spent about 10 hours fiddling with the thing and had to do a factory reset, aka I got my shit back but lost ALL my files (all of which I can easily replace, but god fucking damnit!). Oh well………..
    Ugly: Caitlyn Jenner’s still attached ding dong?

    • KJM

      Watch it. You don’t want me to bring Phil LaBonte here to yell at you again, would you?

      In many ways the best thing about having tech skillz is not being at the mercy of 3rd rate pinheads who are only trained to help you according to a script. Outside of that script, they are as lost as their typical customer is.

  • Howard Dean

    Freedom does indeed taste a lot like bacon wrapped scallops, giant cinnamon buns, and driving what would otherwise be a five minute walk.
