*yawns, forever*

Insomnia sucks. Getting old is lame. Making sure you get a good night’s sleep helps you stay feeling young. So just go to sleep and don’t get old, stupid.

Good: This week’s TovH podcast was really fun to listen to. I’m not one who sleeps with a dragon waifu pillow with the latest Falsettoforce album on repeat, but I’ll be damned if hearing the guys sit down and chat with Brittney from Unleash The Archers didn’t make for one of my favourite episodes to date. Also had some genuine burst out laughing moments with Jordan and Joe’s blasé ripping on Lars and Newsted. Taking the piss out of Lars will never not be funny. Also thought the sinister new instrument Dubya found during the week was metal as fuck, even if the first thought that went through my mind reading that name when he sent it over was ‘GeneriCore Myspace Prog/Djent band’. I mean c’mon, the insanely demented sounds it conjures surely deserve something with a little more dignity than ‘The Apprehension Engine’.

Bad: Not getting enough sleep is shithouse. No more details required.

Ugly: While planning a surprise Saturday morning picnic to the local park today, I realised I was planning a surprise Saturday morning picnic to the local park. In less than one year since becoming a lame-Dad, I have traded looking forward to yet another weekend of perpetual intoxication with sitting on a rug of some description and watching a child touch grass with a sort of reverence one would typically reserve for the most life-changing spiritual event. The change was swift. Ostensibly overnight I had morphed from a youthful reprobate with a penchant for weekend mind-alteration into a banal level-11 Dad incarnate. Game over.

Metal: Bought a bunch of new (and some old) music the past few weeks. Ancient Crypts was one such record. Not sure how I’d gone so long without hearing this one, but it’s a solid little EP of deranged death metal. Featuring members of infernal thrashers Invincible Force and Unaussprechlichen Kulten, the Chilean band are yet another example of why South America is essentially unmatched when it comes to exhibiting primal intensity in metal. Having the Chilean equivalent of Martin van Drunen on vocals certainly adds extra weight behind the hurricane of haymakers this thing hurls over its 20 minute run-time. The doomy first half of the intro track has a nice Obliteration feel to it as well.

Anyway, if aggressive death metal isn’t your thing or you just want to catch up on what we’ve covered this week on the site then here’s your Weekly Wipe playlist. Check it out and find something more your style, like aggressive death metal. You fucken’ poser.

    G: Hoping to score me a sweet Winds of Leng tape
    B: snagged a big broken metal file of some sort with my tire yesterday, but kinda good cuz I wanted new tires anyway.
    U: the price of tires good grief, so much for mailmanbro for a little while

    • more beer

      Tires are pricey, I am about to do the same within the next month. I want to put some 31’s on my 4Runner but they are like 900 bucks. I am going to look at my cash situation and what shows are coming then decide.

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        damned if you do, damned if you don’t with cars man

        • more beer

          I know but they will look bad ass and are good for winters here,

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            are they wide? We’ve learned here in snowy new england that the narrow tires are much better in the snow than wide tires because they get better linear traction because they penetrate through the snow rather than float on top of it

          • more beer

            First size actual truck tire the snow here is a more of a powder compared to there where it is wetter. Plus there is the whole going and playing in the mud thing.

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            In that case, I say splurge on the super swampers

          • more beer

            I really think that’s my plan.

    • Count_Breznak

      Huh. I managed to pick up 2 nails and a screw over the course of about 1,5 years (I still don’t know HOW or WHERE exactly). Cost me about 20 bucks and 2-3 hours to get it repaired, each.

      • more beer

        I work in the building trades I pick up nails and screws so often, I keep a tire plug kit in my truck. The last one a couple of weeks ago I fixed right on the spot without taking the tire off of my truck. The kit was a great $7.00 investment.

        • Elegant Gazing Globe

          would you be able to help me figure out if my deck is built sturdy enough to support about 8000 lbs if I was to describe it’s construction?

          • more beer

            Sure if I can’t answer it I have a really good friend who owns a framing company and he will have the answer. Also look into what is code where you live.

            @bosstheross:disqus knows how to get in touch with you off disqus you said?

          • more beer

            Yes sir as does Vladimir Putin.

        • Lacertilian

          While using plant equipment I once had to MacGyver a tyre plug out of an ear-plug in the middle of nowhere to try and get us through the day.
          Ended up staying up all day. Impressed with its durability, we left it in to see how far it could go.
          2 weeks later it was still going!

          • more beer

            That’s pretty awesome. It is amazing the solutions to things you can come up with when you are forced to with limited resources

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        I considered just doing that, but I’ve got wife and kids and need some sort of reliability that’s more important than being stranded on the side of a highway with a blown out patch(which has also happened to me)

  • Jeff Manteiga

    Good: 4-day weekend. New Khemmis/Spirit Adrift split. Updated my blog for the first time in 5 months.

    Bad: The Trump-era EPA is setting up a team of non-scientists to debate scientists on climate science.

    Ugly: This new Cavernlight album. Holy shit D:

    • JWG

      Is that EPA stuff in any way related to Rick Perry’s nonsense ‘red team blue team’ shtick from last week?

      • Jeff Manteiga

        Bingus. Just the sheer irony of it makes me want to crawl under a rock.

  • more beer

    Damn Lizard perfect edition as I turned 52 today. But I am just old and tired,with no kids to take my weekend perpetual intoxication away. So I am going to smoke some meat, drink a bunch of beers,smoke a lot of weed and kick it with some good friends.

  • Hans

    Good: Not sure why it took me about three years, but I finally got a washing machine. No more laundromat. Huzzah.

    Bad: Signed up to do a 4km benefit run with some people from work. I am in no way a sporty guy and I too feel old and tired today, so it’s gonna be a shit show.

      Laundromats suck. That is funny fuck that guy.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      If only Jeremy understood the irony of that statement

  • Brock Samson

    Good: Moving tomorrow to go start grad school soon after and the wife found a kick ass job in the new town

    Bad: Packing a house full of shit we never see or use

    Ugly: Moving in Arizona summer heat

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      why not just pack it into a roll off and be done with it?

  • JWG

    Good: Tomorrow is Canada Day. It’s the start of a long weekend to make up for tomorrow’s holiday being a Saturday. Summer weather persists. I plan to make the best use of it.

    Bad: I mean, technically, you wasted an opportunity to tie the ROTW theme to a specific holiday, but I’m not really mad. I’ll be spending my day immersed in Canadian Riffs anyway.

    On that note…

    • Lacertilian

      We did Canadian riffs not too long ago, alas I didn’t know this was coming up. Prob would have done the half-yearly comp anyway though because I couldn’t find maple syrup when doing groceries last week and I blame it entirely on your country.

      • more beer

        Vermont produces the best maple syrup for future reference.

        • Lacertilian

            I am not sure that is a real place. But there are real places that look like that in New England.

            I know I have spent a pretty fair amount of time up there

          • The Arm(KJM)

            We used to go up to Northern Vermont every Christmas vacation, boring as hell but amazing countryside, especially the mountains.

          • more beer

            My buddies grandmother owner a summer house up there. So we would go up there and party.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: may be up for a promotion at Christmas Tree Shops, saw a friend on Wednesday.

    Bad: I will have to leave Old Navy if I get the promotion.

    Ugly: at the mall and theres some little monster screaming up a storm. I hate untrained little kids.

    • more beer

      Is the Christmas tree store open year round? If not don’t take the promotion. Because in the long run it will fuck you.

      • Óðinn

        I think they branched out and sell general furniture and housewares too.

        • more beer

          I don’t know, I don’t go to malls and I especially don’t go to stores With Christmas Tree in their name. I am a respectable meatalhead who doesn’t believe in some crazy skygod.

          • Óðinn

            Fair enough. I’ve never actually been to one.

          • more beer

            Me either.

          • The Arm(KJM)

            Mom loves the Christmas Tree shop. It has a lot of arts & crafts type shit.

          • more beer

            Fair enough ust not my kind of place.

          • The Arm(KJM)

            She goes with her visiting nurses that show up every week. I don’t remember the last time I’ve been there.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        It is. It’s not a Christmas store though, it’s a discount store

        • more beer

          Then why the name?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I can’t figure it out

          • more beer

            Dammit JJD You’re the Christian you should have that answer.

  • tigeraid

    The Good: Only one more week ’til vacation.
    The Bad: Massively overworked due to an idiot co-worker who’s wasting everyone’s time with a sick leave he doesn’t need–though when he’s here, he doesn’t do much anyway.
    The Ugly: Trump.

    EDIT:

    Ugly 2: we get to work the Monday of Canada Day, because fuck this place.

    • more beer

      Idiots are the number one cause for me being overworked as well. If these morons would do their jobs correctly I wouldn’t end up slammed at the end of every month. The worst part is it always because of the same idiots.

  • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

    Good: Saw Iron Maiden on Tuesday. Brilliant show

    Bad: Insomnia. I’m in the same boat, my reptilian friend

    Ugly: The heat, I guess. But it is becoming more bearable around here

    • The Arm(KJM)

      Seeing Maiden in mid-July.

      • 12th here! you and i might be the only ones who appreciate the opener 😉

        • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

          I enjoyed Ghost as well. Kind of a bummer that they only played one song from their debut, which is easily their best album

          And Maiden did not play my favorite song from them >:(

        • The Arm(KJM)

          I’m a bit concerned about Ghost not being as good as previous shows because of the changing members, still looking forward to it though.

    • Óðinn
  • Good: Got my job title upgraded this week, got a ton accomplished at work, and me and the rest of the marketing team finished up our 24 week Bikini Body (yes, i’m not lying) workout.

    Bad: Been in a major funk lately, bored of the usual things that keep me entertained and not motivated enough to create any art.

    Ugly: Every single aspect of politics in America.

  • Lord of Bork

    Good: Excited for Revocation and Artificial Brain to swing through Denver this fall
    Bad: Apparently my boss is actively preventing me from getting promoted
    Ugly: Have to work on July 4 instead of pursuing that nice mid-week buzz

    • more beer

      You’re in Denver? If so that would make 3 of us from the Toilet here.

      • Lord of Bork

        I’m actually down in the Springs but I come up for concerts pretty often

        • more beer

          I go down there from for shows from time to time. I was down there at the beginning of the month for 71 Grind.

          • Lord of Bork

            I had something else to do that day or I would’ve gone, sounded like a great show

          • more beer

            I only went down for the Saturday night part of it but Phobia, The Drip and Wound Vac were worth the trip alone.

    • Óðinn

      Call in sick. No promotion, no work on July 04.

      • more beer

        I’m pissed I have to work Monday. Only one builder scheduled anything. Fucking pricks. It is such a little amount of work it isn’t really worth it to me.

      • Lord of Bork

        Well I don’t have to go in but I’ll have to take calls for potential new clients. Not quite so bad but still irritating

  • Óðinn

    Sometimes, Yahoo! Answers makes me laugh.

    Old joke, I know. But it was the thought that there are so many African American racist Metal bands that you cannot find non-racist ones to listen to, had me LOLing.

      That should make every metalhead laugh.

    Hey Lacertilian, do not despair. I went through the same swift change and found it difficult. It does get better though as your children get older. I’m lucky enough to have a son (now 8) who is into a lot of the same things I am. I take him surfing, we just spent the weekend snowboarding, he skates and we also play a bit of PS4 together. Things do get better and easier but it takes a few years.

    The only downside is that he has shit taste in music. he keeps asking if I like 21 Pilots. I don’t even know who the fuck they are. Having said that, he was singing along to quite a few tracks of ‘Sad Wings of Destiny’ in the car the other day so there is hope yet.
