Flush It Friday: School is for Tools

Ah, Flush It Friday, our highly esteemed Toilet tradition.

By now, most of you know how this works, but for the uninitiated, Flush It Friday is our one day at the end of every week where we contemplate all the stupid things that happened, try to look at the bright side and finally ponder our most contentious bowel movements [Editor’s Note: Why is everything always about poop?]. But first, here’s our week in review:

Read or be damned forever. Now, on to the negativity and, hopefully, some positivity:

THE BAD:

  • I am currently buried ‘neath a veritable Kilimanjaro of schoolwork.
  • My bike has two flat tires, a broken pedal and a broken chain. What a turd.
  • Bandcamp has been sporadically crapping the bed all week, greatly slowing my consumption of righteous jams.
  • Save for my investments [see THE GOOD] I still have nary a penny to my name.
  • Some guy spit on me while I was serving him food at a homeless shelter. WHATEVER, MAN.
  • My school’s administration is total ballsacs and refuses to relinquish its hold on my student ID, which means I can’t read any of the books I need for class in the library or even set up an appointment to complain to the counselors.
  • Philip Levine, former poet laureate of the United States, has died at 87.

“Listen, I have you now
in a silver cage, and you come to my hand
each morning with first light
and you glow and purr.”

  • Taco Bell not withstanding, you guys are still undertaking massive circle jerks in the comments section. We have a Facebook group specifically so you can dump all your stupid off-topic thoughts without completely marginalizing the work of the site’s writers. It’s not my fault you won’t join Facebook, you idiot. At least wait for an Open Swim. We have at least one every week. You know who you are. Don’t be a dick.
  • Edward‘s posing grows by the day. I feel it, like a powerful force rising in the east…oooohhhhhh

THE GOOD:

  • My stock portfolio is dominating it this week. If that was actual real money, this would be great news, but I’ll take solace in my increased “net worth” (lolbuttz).
  • I was able to download (heh heh heh) most of my textbooks, which is a big load off my back.
  • For as few big-name releases as this year has had or have been announced so far, I’ve still been blown away by killer records from bands young and old. Stay tuned for my reviews of some, which you all will read voraciously, ov course.
  • I keep seeing you losers complain about snow, whatever that is. I’m writing this at 10 PM and it’s 62 degrees. Tomorrow’s high is expected to be 68. Get on my level.
  • Had some bomb (dank?) waffles this morning. It’s the little things.

THE UGLY:

Actually my bowel movements have been pretty staid lately. I implore you instead to go back and re-read Spear’s masterful introduction to this week’s This Toilet Tuesday.

Aight, your turn. Who in your life deserves a hug and who just needs a flush? Aforementioned off-topic douches, this is your chance.

    [Editor’s Note: Why is everything always about poop?]

    Because it’s a website called “The Toilet Ov Hell”?

    • Tyree

      Hail Poop!

  • VVayne Brady

    Bad: Allergy-induced headaches.
    Good: My wife’s shrimp tacos.
    Ugly: My poop after my wife’s shrimp tacos.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Shrimp tacos sound righteous to me right now.

    • nomnomnomnom Shrimp Tacos.

    • Tyree

      Shrimp and White Wine Bro!

      • VVayne Brady

        Man, some wine would have been great. That said, I’m getting beer tonight.

        • Tyree

          Nice! Any thing in particular? I’m doing some beer shopping after I get off here.

          • VVayne Brady

            Not sure. Just hitting a real chill bar with some dudes tonight. I’ll probably get something as dark and close to tar as possible.

          • Tyree

            Keep it dark. I got a couple of bottles of some American Imperial Stout in the fridge, but that will not be enough.

          • Have you tried Sierra Nevada’s stout, Narwhal? Very tasty, although the taste of alcohol is a bit too prevalent

          • VVayne Brady

            I have not. I doubt they have it on tap.

          • Ah, dark beers on tap are always a pleasure, hope you enjoy

          • Tyree

            So much better!

          • Tyree

            Do you have any micro breweries around where you live?

          • VVayne Brady

            We’ve got one in town, but I don’t hit it up too often. Drinking is expensive, and I’d rather save my limited funds for other things most of the time.

          • Tyree

            Yeah, Love is a battle field.

          • VVayne Brady

            This is why I only buy more expensive beers I’m sure to enjoy. If I’m going to spend money on alcohol, I want to make it count.

          • pure.freaking.airplane.gasoline.

          • Actually, airplanes use a low grade kerosene for fuel. FYI

            GL

          • Airplane Gasoline is a local euphemism for cheap alcohol.

          • Noted!

            GL

          • HA we cannot buy that in Ohio. Its a shame really.

            GL

          • I like how that’s clearly a homeless guy holding it.

          • VVayne Brady

            Been there, done that. Whip up a batch o’ man drank!

          • Guacamole Jim

            I once made a drink from that stuff. It was called “Bitches Brew” in honour of Mr. Davis.

            Never again.

          • I’ve taken shots of it a couple of times. 0/10 wNOTdbwa F——-

          • VVayne Brady

            Everclear/Mountain Dew/Lime Gatorade Mix=Man Drank. You’re in business, and business is boomin’!

          • Guacamole Jim

            Wow. That sounds…. like something I want to try but really shouldn’t.

          • VVayne Brady

            I wouldn’t recommend it.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Yeesh.

          • VVayne Brady

            Been a long, long, long time since I went down that path.

          • Worst I ever did was cheap vodka in Coke and Red Bull.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            Coke a Cola was pretty rad.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            That’s right Disqust, don’t post the whole comment.

          • Tyree

            Jesus fucking Christ! Get away!!!

          • Sacritastic

            Similar stuff is called “Sprit” in Russia, they mix it with fresh spring water.
            It tastes like very pure vodka, even if it is just watered down to 70%. You can also use it to clean windows or degrease engine parts

          • Stockhausen

            I only have one experience with that stuff. It involves a looooong stretch of telling a room full of people who DO NOT CARE about metal why they should, like, really love BTBAM, losing my mind about the moon, unknowingly wearing multiple clothing articles backward, and having to lead a drumline rehearsal. It was a dark day.

          • more beer

            I`m so blessed they are everywhere in Colorado. They call it the Napa Valley of beer.

          • Guacamole Jim
          • more beer

            That`s because it`s an imperial stout and has an abv of 10.2%. For a stout to be an imperial stout it must be at least 9% abv. The higher the abv the more it will taste like alcohol.

          • Stanley

            Here’s your shopping list.

            Ballast Point – Victory at Sea
            Stone – Enjoy by IPA
            Lagunitas – Hop Stoopid
            Goose Island – Bourbon County Stout
            Port Brewing – Old Viscosity
            Green Flash – West Coast IPA

            You’re welcome.

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      I had some filet of sole with shrimp stuffed in it for lunch. It was good.

    • death to authentic tacos!

  • Tyree

    Grate it’s Friday!!!!

    Drink Beer!!!

    • I’m laughing like a child with this.

      Thanks, Tyree.

      And thanks for Cavernous Cult too 😉

    • Further Down the Metal Hole

      As long as it’s fresh!

    • I will begin this activity in about 3 hours. The wait is killing me.

      • Tyree

        Grating your feet and drinking beer >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    GOOD: I made this week’s Flush It Friday, too, lol.

    I don’t have to be back to work until March 2nd, 2015.

    I’m meeting my girlfriend’s father and brother for the first time tonight. I’m not even a little nervous about it (possibly because I am v personable irl)

    BAD: uh, not much. Work was crazy this week and I need to catch up on a few ToH stories but whatever see GOOD, above.

    UGLY: I’m going to attempt to listen to a noise artist’s large discography tomorrow. I’m also going to put in a full on blogging shift tomorrow morning after a period of somewhat forced attempts. I’m coming for the spot recently vacated by Howard Dean.

    Love,

    Edward / Negrodamus

    • Good vibes with the family meeting!

      Love,

      Link D. Leonhart V.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Link, gracias. You know that’s right.

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      Where has Howard been?

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        He’s here in our hearts and minds, Janitor Jim.

  • Guacamole Jim

    THE BAD: I’ve been tired all week, despite getting a proper amount of sleep. This exhaustion culminated in sleeping past my alarm this morning, and running around like a moron in the frigid cold trying to find a bus to get my sorry ass to work.

    THE GOOD: A bell-themed restaurant that produces heavenly tacos. The name isn’t coming to mind, though.

    THE UGLY: I’m about to head to the shitter and release the fury of a thousand suns (or at least one spicy pasta dish from last night).

  • EsusMoose

    Good:Free food this weekend
    Bad: Projects are getting thrown at me like crazy
    Ugly: I will shall exist the bleach white computer labs for at least 20 hours this weekend if I don’t figure out what the fuck I’m doing

  • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

    Bad: the joke I invented went too far, I unintentionally deleted my discography of Duran Duran, being unable to eat meat on Fridays due to Lent

    Good: I have a family thing tomorrow which will have food, I bought some good vinyl this week, the forgotten Beach Boys album I love is getting a vinyl reissue, the Jnco revival

    Ugly: the new All That Remains album, my Gamecube’s AV cable getting chewed by my dog .

    • Edward/Breegrodamus
      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        INXS rules. They’re so underrated.

    • ugh.. Try to repair that cable. Gamecube is a treasure.

      Stay healthy!

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        The video output still works but the audio output is broken.

    • Dude, fried fish on Fridays. Get it. A church in your area might be hosting a fish fry.

      • VVayne Brady

        Several of my Catholic friends always throw down for Fish on Fridays.

        • It fills that ‘greasy and fried’ hole that a burger joint normally would.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        I got some fish from the supermarket and fried it. It was so good.

  • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

    THE GOOD: I got to keep my job…

    THE BAD: …For an undisclosed time between one and three months. FUCK, also bought albums yesterday,
    Dawn’s discography today and tomorrow a bunch of stuff from the last post. Now this is all good, except that I have no money.

    THE UGLY: Still not getting swole.

    • Hope you can set your priorities. I know you count with us for advices and good vibes.

      Love,

      Link D. Leonhart V.

    • You disgust me with your lack of swole.

      • Guacamole Jim

        Bro does he even lift? What a fuckin’ brotoplasm.

      • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

        HEY! I’m TRYING to work on it!

        • Guacamole Jim

          Bro just put on some SWELLIN TO THE JAMMIES and get fuckin’ swole bro!

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        Other bad news: I haven’t been to the gym since Monday and because of that I gained a few pounds.

        • well at least you’ve got a good diet.
          *sees self to the door

        • That weight gain is due to consuming more calories than you’re burning. If you can’t hit the gym be sure to eat less and you’ll be fine.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I’ve been eating much less since I started exercising. I just haven’t been able to get to the gym.

    • need some brotips? just watch Brosciencelife on youtube…

    • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

      ALSO GOOD: BEER!

  • Tyree

    Bad: I’m still waiting on two big album orders from out of country. It’s been close to 2 months for each order. They keep telling me they should be on there way (3 times now). Fucking die!!!

    Good: BEER!

    Ugly: Living.

  • BAD: My only jacket has developed a hole in the elbow region.
    GOOD: Slough Feg is a band.
    UGLY: My cat is so obese, guys.

  • The bad: just now started a 12 hour shift.
    The good: Archspire
    The ugly: the stupid Fucks in management have decided the building won’t close until the end of march. Until today I was told end of February. I’m sick of being jerked around by these fuckheads and I’ve lost all respect for them. Job app time.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      JB if misery loves company the man who bought the business I work for won’t have a man to man conversation with me about my employment (even thought I know what’s going down). He simply said well, I don’t have any answers for you yet. Really dude? Lol

      • Yea same here, and they clearly fucking know they just won’t say. I have half a mind to not give these shitheads two weeks notice if I find something else. I will though because I suffer from being a nice respectable person irl lol.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Plus you never know who might find out you work there even if you don’t put it on your resume.

    • Stay out of that work when you can!

      Also, stay techy!

      Love,

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Is this that LONGCAT vs. TACGNOL battle I’ve been hearing about for like 8 years?

    • Herr Schmitty

      Dude, your cat throws an awesome 18 punch combination!

      • Dagon

        Did you actually count the punches?

  • Spear

    The good: writing siqq jamz
    The bad: not having the technical proficiency required to play said siqq jamz
    The ugly: the lady has some kind of stomach bug. I weep for our plumbing.

    • hope Mrs. Spear is fine!

      Continue practicing, you can do it!

      Love,

      Link D. Leonhart V.

      • Spear

        She’s doing better now than she was this morning. Also, it gave me a good excuse to stay home and play guitar all day.

        • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

          You get to stay home ’cause yer missus is sick?

          • Spear

            I got out of my afternoon class because she was violently ill, yes.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            Test

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            By the former I ment that such an arrangement would not be possible here. You are not sick = You work.

          • Spear

            Ah, gotcha. Fortunately my instructors are fairly sympathetic towards things like this and it’ll be easy to make up the work.

      • VVayne Brady

        I should add that GOOD for me has been talking to Spear about Zelda games.

        • Spear

          Speaking of which, if they ever decide to hand of the series to a third-party developer again, I want it to be FromSoftware. Zelda in the style of Dark Souls? Yes, please.

          • VVayne Brady

            Don’t hate me, but… I’ve never played any of the Dark Souls games.

          • Spear

            The games have incredible atmosphere. You always hear about the crushing difficulty and whatnot, but it’s the way the world feels that really makes those games so great.

          • don’t do it. i’ll give you my copy of DS2 if you want.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            The first one (Demons’ Souls, I think) is so frickin’ hard. I didn’t beat it. Also very fun.

          • I got like halfway through Dark Souls before I sat back and realized I didn’t really like it. Apply only if you like crushing difficulty, poorly explained mechanics and looking up A LOT of things online.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            DS is not hard. It takes time and effort, you won’t succeed at first, but even a “n00b” can get through it.

          • Dude it is SO hard, that’s exactly why it takes (a lot) time and (a lot) effort. There’s a definite learning curve, and I can find myself blitzing through the areas I’ve already cleared no problem when I started a new character, but pain and gain is the name of the game.

        • I want to play Minish Cap again <3

          • VVayne Brady

            I beat Four Swords earlier this week, and I’ve been playing Link’s Awakening during my limited down-time.

    • Further Down the Metal Hole

      Surely the stomach bug can be used for a toilet Tuesday somewhere down the line.

      • Spear

        It’ll get added to the queue of gut-wrenching poop scenarios.

        • Further Down the Metal Hole

          It’s for the greater good of humanity. Tell her that.

  • NefariousDude

    Good: dart guns are fun
    Bad: my nose is stuffy
    Ugly: my wang

    • pium pium pium

      Love,

      Link D. Leonhart V.

    • Stanley

      Wangs certainly weren’t invented for their good looks.

      • Lacertilian

        Natural selection should have the penis looking amazing by 2500 because the females I know are pretty fussy with aesthetics.

      • NefariousDude

        They are meant to be hidden in a warm, humid environment.

  • Stanley

    The Good: Taxes are out of the way.

    The Bad: I didn’t buy any new music this week.

    The Ugly: Having to convince myself that I didn’t buy any new music this week, when I know full well that I did and Mgla and Kriegsmachine are soon to be deposited into my grubby little paws.

    • Awesome that the taxes are out of the way! Congrats

      You will have new music soon 😉

      Love,

      Link D. Leonhart V.

      • Stanley

        Dude. I don’t know what the tax filing process is like in Venezuela, but in the US, the process sucks and is actually quite stressful. Super happy that it’s over and I don’t owe too much money.

        • The best part of Venezuela is that you don’t pay taxes! That’s why we can’t protest on the goverment! 😀

          I’m happy for you! n_n

        • i get money back! no idea why… cause i’m not married? cause i have two dependent shitcats? i hope you do okay with taxes!

          • Stanley

            I need to get me a couple of shitcats to claim as dependents. How does that work exactly? Do they need to be covered by Obamacare?

          • VVayne Brady

            Just get a med student wife. the tax breaks will offset the crushing student debt!

          • Stanley

            If you combined the weight of all of the articles and posts ever made in the ToH, it would still not be heavy enough to offset the crushing weight of debt.

          • VVayne Brady

            Don’t I know it, Stanley.

  • BAD: I’m not feeling well emotionally.

    UGLY: I’m tired.

    GOOD: You’re here. My family supports me. There’s music.

    • what?!?! don’t you know how smart we all are, and can solve any emotional problems?

      • I don’t even know how to express myself how I feel x.x)

        I feel kind of desperate and anxious.

        • I solve that by one of two things:
          A) Going for a run or B) jacking off.

          • That makes me feel more miserable 🙁 I can’t do that! jajajaja

          • C) beer, ya dummy!

          • I don’t think Link has the disposable income needed for beer, though 🙁

          • I can buy two beers only right now. But I’m afraid to go out to buy it lol

          • Yeah, I don’t blame you. It sounds like beer would just make you a more tempting target where you live.

          • I got orange juice <3

          • Also, my stomach is weird today. If I drink a beer I will not be able to go to my hometown this weekend u_u

          • Stanley

            That’s why beer falls into my non-disposable income bucket for budgeting purposes.

          • After spending income on my own beer, I find myself agreeing that beer money should not be something that is “optional”.

          • more beer

            Beer is not optional it`s mandatory!

          • more beer

            That`s right the mans way of dealing with emotions!

      I thought that’s why people left MS in the first place, because it wasn’t fun anymore.

      • Exactly! KJM gets it!

        GL

      • and because Conan couldn’t embed Gilligans Island porn, and because we couldn’t embed actual decent music, and because Axl.

        • Spear

          Especially that last one.

      • VVayne Brady

        I left because the content was irrelevant to my interests (mostly).

        • Lacertilian

          I still go there sometimes and my water bill has increased.
          In this case correlation = causation.

      • Celtic Frosty

        I left because they gave every album the same ranking and a lot of their writers have terrible taste.

        • How dare you! Gary Suarez is a saint!

          • Celtic Frosty

            Hey, I didn’t say ALL. I said a lot.

      • Guacamole Jim

        Personally, I left because the articles just got progressively worse and worse, and the content got dumber and dumber. I do really like the comments section here, but I agree it could be a little more on topic.

        • Spear

          And that’s what I fucking love about this place: even when I’m not interested in the content, the writing is good enough that I want to read everything anyway. That and the comments section isn’t filled with douchebags.

      • this:

      Love,

      Link D. Leonhart V.

    • I wish we could find a balance between respecting an author’s work and having good times in tha Toilet. I get bummed when someone puts up good work and all of the comments are completely irrelevant.

      • Guacamole Jim

        I have been bad for that as of late. I will rein myself in.

        • KJM

          Reigning myself in, so to speak, would involve not posting about 95% of the time since I only like about 5% of the music discussed here.

          • VVayne Brady

            I know what you like 😉

          • Guacamole Jim

            I don’t like it all either, but I think there could be plenty of stuff discussed in the comments that’s more on-topic to the music than what we generally post about. And I’m well aware that I’m bad for the circle jerks.

      • I agree. I was a little hot/cold that my discussion yesterday didn’t take off as much as I wanted. However, the topics discussed were still top notch!

        GL

      • Tyree

        I can be a prickly prick about it sometimes. It’s mostly music (youtube video) drops in the comment sections when I can’t get into what was posted.

      • let’s see if we can go ONE WEEK without circlejerking!

      • I usually just collapse the comment with that button on the top right. Bam! No more distraction.

  • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

    I feel bad that Philip Levine died. He was an awesome poet. At least Brian Wilson is still alive. I’m excited for his new album coming out in April.

    • VVayne Brady

      Did you compare a poet Laureate and the dude from the Beach Boys?

      • He would

      • hrm, i think JJD’s version of “compare” is different from ours

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          It is. I compared them based on what they are known for.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        Brian Wilson is a genius when it comes to music. Philip is a master poet. They’re both awesome at what they do.

  • Celtic Frosty

    BAD: My music budget is proving insufficient but cannot be expanded.
    GOOD: Sarpanitum
    UGLY: Expressing my dog’s anal glands.

    • VVayne Brady

      Budgeting is a good thing. I’m in the same boat.

      • Celtic Frosty

        My wife had to reign my silly ass in. I get 25 bucks per paycheck now. I’m adjusting.

        • VVayne Brady

          That’s how much I allow myself too! It actually sort of makes getting things you like all the sweeter. Also, you become a thriftier consumer.

          • I try to do a similar thing except there are bands that I know I will love no matter what and are exempt from the rule.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Do you get one paycheck a month? I thought it was $25 a month, which seemed CRAZY.

          • VVayne Brady

            I do get one paycheck a month, so yes $25 a month.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Jedi mind shit.

          • Celtic Frosty

            I get 2 checks a month, thankfully. I buy all digital, so I can get a few albums each time.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Hey, I have a serious question about Sarpanitum / music. I already ran this by my boy C. I have listened to Sarpanitum twice, super solid album. However, I read here on the ToH and over at NCS that people think it is “blackened”… why?

      • Celtic Frosty

        Fuck if I know. Everything is “blackened” now, including my mood every time someone uses that descriptor.

      • Celtic Frosty

        The only thing blackened is the end. So sayeth Metallica.

      • Spear

        I dunno. They describe themselves as “blackened brutal death metal,” so that’s what I labelled them as. Basically, this is me every weekend.

        http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/234/765/b7e.jpg

        • I love that doggy <3

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I am also generally down with using labels artists use for themselves.

          I’m kind of going through a thing of reading blogs outside the Toilet again and actually learning about the musical components of music (because I am not a musician, some of these dudes know so much shit), and since I hvkk away at stuff here myself, I want to be able to accurately describe the music I’m talking about.

          “Xibalba moved away from playing hardcore” haha what bloggers.

          My other one is Imperial Triumphant who every blogger on Earth (including someone at Decibel) and all of their friends have labeled “black metal” and… barely. That new song “Krokodil” sounded as close to black metal as anything on their previous full length album (starts with an “A”) and Goliath and that new song “Dead Heaven”. They sound like a tech-ier less vile Pyrrhon’s brother to me, makes sense since they share two members.

          I’m sure there are others, too. Those are two lately.

          • I’m curious about the statement about Xibalba moving away from hardcore. If you compare their first record to the latest, it’s clear to me that they’ve embraced more of a death metal sound than hardcore. There is still hxc there, to be sure, but it’s pretty different.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Different, sure, less ignorant mosh stuff, sure. I just played it this week and it sounded a lot like a hardcore record to me, though. I might not be an expert on “hardcore” but I have to say it sounded as much like hardcore as it did like “death metal”. I have read several bloggers that said they basically just played death metal now.

          • Dagon

            Honestly, I don’t know how to describe. All I know is from that first “UUUUUGGGHHH” in Enemigo onwards I am REKING shit at my local gym.

            Tierra y Libertad + Squats = REKT

          • A great combination of hardcore and death metal. Skinfather also sounds like hardcore and death metal, but they don’t really sound like Xibalba. Death metal and hardcore are both accurate descriptors, and if death/black is a genre, why not death/hardcore?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            See, that was the part that threw me because on their Xibalba on their second album didn’t really sound like any of the bands that I have listened to that fall under the “death metal” umbrella.

            I think some would argue a lot of grindcore is death metal / hardcore, but some isn’t… lol

          • It’s funny how that works, isn’t it? Grindcore started out as a hybrid of death and hardcore, and yet almost 30 years later the same thing is happening again and producing notably different results.

          • I think Young And In The Way fits the black/hardcore bill fairly well.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enJPdc73JME

          • This rips.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Oh god yes *headbangs for 20 minutes*

          • I believe Sergeant D penned the term “GODOFEMPTINESSCORE ” to describe their sound.

          • Man. Dude says some real disagreeable stuff sometimes but when he’s right, he’s right.

          • Lacertilian

            Side Note: Got around to hearing that Harm’s Way track you put up, it was surprisingly brutal for hardcore.

          • Spear

            It seems easier a lot of the time to just describe the music as opposed to trying to throw a label on it. Labels are really only useful when the music fits them to a tee; otherwise you spend a lot of time simply trying to justify the label you’ve applied. There are so many different sounds out there that, were you feeling particularly ambitious/masochistic, you could give just about every band out there a unique subgenre.

            Except for 90% of those MA bands whose profile pictures are all grayscale/corpse paint. YOU ALL SOUND EXACTLY THE SAME, NOBODY NEEDS TO HEAR YOUR “MESSAGE”

      • On last.fm they’re also listed as ‘brutal’ and ‘technical’.

        I just stick with labeling them death metal, the only category they fall into neatly.

  • nbm02ss

    Over my sinus infection just in time for the weekend! Weee!!!

      Maybe not completely over; I’m still coughing up lung butter, but the pressure in my head is gone, so I’ll take it.

    • Ouch. Do you really think I’m ugly?

      • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

        a few weeks back–i did a post–and said “hey we’re from the south,,,but we havent did shit—that they always try to say on tv…lets have a rebirth like this cute pygmy hippo–in this vid—as a joke” beyond all that racist,stereotypical false “info manipulation” bullshit—and you said that you hated that “ugly ass pig”===

        like there just aint no gettin out of it—as far as the “infowar” is concerned

        i started thinking about what ‘is”–and about the southern flag—and that it is our flag—even if we dont want it to be —it still symbolizes “the south”–
        its not fair—but the best thing i can think of —is to just accept it—-

        and then kick those 911inside job motherfuckers assses on the internet—save the world for all races—
        and shut you anti south racists up once and for all

        • Joe is the only thing I hate in the South. You’re alright in my book, zzzzzzzzzzz. I, uh, really don’t know anything about hippos or pigs.

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    WTF man, why would you spit on someone in that situation. MAKES NO SENSE.

    The good: I recently got tickets for Junius and Hark+Steak Number Eight, both performing in April. I am so stoked!

    The bad: I feel a bit guilty about forcing the missus to accompany me, although she at least enjoys Junius, so that isn’t really forcing. That much.

    The ugly: I have a new student at my Taekwon-Do class for kids, a kid that is now with a foster parent and knows only beatings as a sign of affection. This is my first year teaching, so I’m still figuring this out as I go along. Looking into a lot of material regarding troubled kids and how to deal with them/integrate them into the group/make them feel welcome and appreciated etc. Feeling good about next week, have many activities planned, hoping to make him see the value of our group and what joy it’ll bring, once he becomes part of it.

    • VVayne Brady

      I hope things go well for the little guy.

    • Wow, you’re awesome! <3

      Love,

      • Further Down the Metal Hole

        I try to be. I never imagined it would be such a delight, but when you teach kids things and you see their enjoyment doing that stuff, I can hardly think of something else that gives you an equal amount of joy. It’s incredible.

    • Yeah, no idea what he was thinking. A lot of these guys are veterans and/or have mental issues so we more or less have to juat give them some space. I’m just tryna serve you soup, bro.

    THE GOOD:
    There will be beer tonight. Plenty.
    The results from my gym/diet efforts are showing, and I’m the most excited and disciplined I’ve ever been.

    THE BAD:
    I slacked during Carnaval holiday and now I have a ton of work to get through in the next couple days.

  • Dagon

    THE WTF:
    My mom’s macumba statues – all of them – broke. They just shattered to pieces on their own. Also, my dog was acting weirded out like he was seeing something in the place the statues used to be, and my mom is convinced it was something spiritual. So my dad and I had to drive to the river and throw away the statue pieces to prevent Satanic Goat Necroboners to invade our house in the middle of the night.

    So, yeah, I spent the afternoon throwing broken macumba idols into the heart of the rainforest. Just another day at the office.

  • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    it was weird =at metal sucks–when they started insenuating “pedophilia” with the way they were promoting “baby metal”—i was kind of impressed with the instant reaction against it–

    also they didnt like people posting music vids—cuz they were actual cool ass vids=-that were better than the “allowed” music—that was part of their anti metal agenda “metal sucks”—trying to create a crappy music scene

    in the first time in history—free people===posting music—-no limits or agenda—creating a music scene—that ripples thru the internet—and is immensely greater than the sum of it’s parts===that is actually “metal”–

    it is weird sometimes—going to other places—and it’s like so much is copied from this place—even minute shit in the comments—
    freedom–metal–the world——-respect

    • that was huh… wow!

    • Guacamole Jim

      You’re the best, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Never leave this place.

      • zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

        i appreciate the sentiment–also–to you and others that lean towards liberal/humanitarian vibes—-thats what i lean towards too—-

        but the bad guys know—that they have to appeal to “reasonableness”–in their lies—-like they thought out what good things are—and decided to manipulate “those people”

        like you cant be a “liberal” now—cuz they highjacked all the goodness of it–and twisted it—towards totalitarianism/agenda 21—like if yer pro gay rights–well they will hijack the good feelings of that–and use it towards population control/and eventual “class separation” and world holocaust

        so they got a way to twist “bleeding hearts”any which way—

        they cant fuck with true metal though–the key to tomorrow—and true freedom and equality for all

        not “hidden motives” that take advantage of the goodhearted

      I did the online dating thing once. I met a cute and quite interesting girl there. We went for coffee and long walk. Totally didn’t connect, but it was kinda cool to just meet someone new.

      Basically what I’m trying to say is do it up! You’re an intelligent dude. Things will go well.

            That’s actually a pretty accurate description of my based life.
            I am the streets.

          • That is a great mantra.

      • Maybe I’m intelligent, but I have a limited range of interests and a glaring lack of experience.

        • Ask lots of questions. Srs.

          • Lacertilian

            If you ask alot of questions and feign interest, eventually you’ll hit a topic you are interested in

          • Haha, well, I know enough that the key is to keep them talking.

    • Further Down the Metal Hole

      Link to your OSDM article. If that doesn’t build relationships, nothing will!

        • heh, do you listen to any of the Toilet’s pop recommendations? girls be real impressed if you know the works of TayTay and Dev

          • I liked that Charli XCX album Guac J posted.

    • Skyrim >>>> trying to meet girls

      • Dagon

        You can actually get girlfriend MODs for Skyrim so pretty much everything is covered by that.

        • is it called Skytrim?

          • Dagon

            It’s called “God damn it Renan you left your chainmail on top of the bed again?”

      • Skyrim girls won’t leave me no matter how much I use them as fireball shields or how much useless crap I make them carry.

    • Online dating is fun if you don’t take it too seriously and also maybe drink heavily.

      • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

        Wait? Are you saying drink heavily, or don’t drink heavily?

        • I’m prone to terrible anxiety. Like I’m NOT gonna drink heavily before meeting a stranger.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            So that’s why I couldn’t get laid at Metalhead dating.
            Beer and Anxiety + disdain towards strangers are NOT a good combination, who would have thought?

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m surprised by that even though I don’t know why it should be surprising.

      • I can do at least one of those things, for sure.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I met my girlfriend on OkCupid. It’s going great / she’s fantastic.

      • I think you have the advantage of being interesting.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I doubt I am more interesting than you are, plus, I’m a pretty strange character. I also had / have several tough selling points. I dunno if you followed my online dating exploits on here or FB but I tried Tinder prior to OkCupid and went on a lot of dates, I dunno I probably met ten or fifteen women and got flat out rejected a bunch of times after a date, or two. In a weird way I think it was good practice. You just need to get out and give it a try, have fun, don’t worry about being turned down because if / when that happens you just find out that you guys aren’t a good fit or whatever.

          • Oh, that’s how it went? I thought you got a lot of dates because you were some magical combination of PExxx advocate and ladies man 😮

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I asked my girlfriend not to listen to Machismo, hahaha. I was like please don’t.

          • I would hear that story.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Well, that’s pretty much the story but I told her in a humorous way. Like, that cassette came in the mail and it has that just grotesque cover art, so I was like, uh, I really don’t want her to stumble upon it in my place. Then a couple days later I was like, do you want to hear something funny?

            haha

        • being interesting AND having an epic beard

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

    Hear me out. Ever since I started my quest for epic swoleness I went completely nuts over this one girl who works out at the same gym. She is beautiful, seems like a fun person and everytime I look at her ass I hear the beautiful symphony played by one thousand angels riding rainbow unicorns on a golden sunset.

    I just found out that she is still in high school, and quite possibly underage. Now the only symphony I hear is the cell door being locked behind me. I am sad and disappointed. She definitely didn’t look so young. Must be all those fucking hormones dudes are shoving into farm animals these days.

    • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

      Really related: How much over thirty are you Dagon?

        • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

          Well, back an eon ago, when I was eighteen, I had a friend of the same age, going out with some one14/15 so… you could not get jailed.

          • Dagon

            I most definitely wouldn’t considering she is borderline legal at 17. Still, IDK if I have the patience to date a girl this young.

          • Lacertilian

            Dude, if you enjoy her company, you’ll find patience somewhere.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            What I did kinda mean was, here 16 + consent is oft considered okay.

          • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

            But, agai, if I was you. I wouldn’t, then again, I am not you.

        • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

          So what I am saying is, if she not THAT young then whatever. But if I was you, I’d run, the other way, maybe.

          • high af?

          • BASEDBEARD

            always. I’m also super disappointed in your scrugginess in dks2. less yapping, more practice.

            o.O 1200+ hours played says I do.

          • Dagon

            You thought I was older, right? When I was 21 someone told me I looked like a 31 yrs old. Some people say I behave older, I actually think my appearance is the reason.

            I’m working on it, though, and I’ll turn 24 better than I was at 20.

          • VVayne Brady

            Nice! I’m a bit confused on your education time frame, though. How long have you been in med school?

          • Dagon

            I’m currently in my seventh year. I was supposed to graduate last year, but living in the United States in 2012 made me delay my graduation.

            In Brazil you can go from high school straight to med school, with the latter lasting for 6 years. It’s common to only get in later, because the entry exams can be very hard.

          • VVayne Brady

            Ah okay, that explains it. Here, you have to do a pre-med undergrad (4 years), 4 years of med school, then 4 years of residency. A lot of people don’t even get in after undergrad, so you might end up doing 1.5 years of Master’s before med school. Plus, if you want to specialize in something residency, that’s another 2-3 years.

            If you don’t count residency, my wife and I will have completed 17 years of college combined when we’re both finished.

          • Dagon

            That is a long time, but it ends up being somewhat similar to me. I’ll still have to go to residency. My main goal is 3 years of Radiology and then Neuroimaging as a subspecialty. Things can change, though.

          • VVayne Brady

            My wife is now leaning towards neuro, but it changes constantly.

          • Dagon

            I remember a while ago you told me she was into Cardiology. That’s only natural, it’s good to be excited by different areas. I know I have to go into Radiology, Pathology or Nuclear Medicine because I have great affinity for those diagnostics-only fields.

            I like being around patients, but doing clinic hours, ER shifts and stuff like that feels like work. On the other hand, having a heaping pile of MRIs to go through feels like I’m playing the “Find the diagnosis” game.

        • Dagon’s Shocked Right Nipple

    The Good: Since undertaking @joethrashnkill:disqus and @disqus_BSuJ96uFg3:disqus ‘s GSTTJ course a month or so ago, I started doing squats. I started with doing 5 three times a week and am now at 5 lots of 10, three times a week. I may have to start using extra weight though now to cut reps?
    The Bad: After not eating takeaway all week at work I rewarded myself with it.
    The Ugly: My bank account due to buying concert tickets, music and alcohol.

    • Dagon

      No point in being the richest guy in the cemetery. As long as you’re not jeopardizing feeding your familia you’re good to go, mano.

    • ……we’re all itching to know which takeaway you purchased
      *fingers crossed*

    • BASEDBEARD

      It depends on your goal, Lassy. My routines always consist of greater weight / lower reps.

      • Dagon

        Recent scientific evidence is beginning to pile up on this strategy. It’s called a tensional stimulus, and more reps/lower weight is metabolic. They are somewhat equivalent in results, but you spend less time on the gym doing tensional. That’s a plus.

        • Plus you look COOL AS FUCK stacking hella plates.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Plates on plates, Joe. Plates on plates.

          • Dagon

            You are also allowed to scream “I AM THE GUERILLA” after throwing the barbell on the floor.

          • KimJongUn’s Dingleberry Smoke

            Lol, I get my weightlifting in whenever I go out and grab groceries, which looks about like:

            http://loldamn.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/funny-gif-weight-lifting.gif

          • Stanley

            Is ok to stack 10s on each side?

          • Gotta start somewhere!

          • Stanley

            Ok. I’ll start with the 5s.

      • Lacertilian

        My goal is to lose some weight I packed on during my craftbrewing years and to get a bit swole in the process.
        I’ve just dropped below 100kgs and I’m around 190cms.

        • BASEDBEARD

          Then I would likely argue against the way that I train. Its basically devoid of cardio work, and is not intended for cutting/losing weight. More reps, and then gradually increase your weights. Add more cardio.

          • Dagon

            I mean no disrespect but the way you train is excellent for weight loss. It promotes fat burning on the off-time more than doing regular cardio will ever do.

            If you want to do weight loss go all-in at weight lifting and HIIT. Regular aerobic is good for cardiovascular performance, but it doesn’t promote sustained fat burning.

          • Lacertilian

            I cover between 10-15kms on a typical work day, so I don’t usually feel up to doing more cardio.
            Increasing my muscle is going to help increase my basal metabolic rate though so I can sit here baked and not feel as guilty.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Ah shit, I didn’t realize you were running that much. Yeah, I suppose you have little where else to go from there. Normally, I would say, “GET BIG.” I guess that doesn’t apply here.

          • Lacertilian

            Why doesn’t that apply?
            I’m not really running at work but walking around up and down hills carrying things and swinging tools etc.

          • BASEDBEARD

            GET BIG, den

      Move to the southern hemisphere, we’re Tapir friendly.

      • Tapir’s Inquisition

        Rest of my neighbours don’t hate me, they’re just really fucking annoying and way too happy. I wish they hated me more.

        • Lacertilian

          Making your neighbours hate you is so easy to achieve.
          gotta get more difficult goals dude.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Come to Chicago, it’s still freezing and there are plenty of assholes but the beer is better

      • Tapir’s Inquisition

        But there’s plenty of assholes and I don’t drink beer.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          We’ll find something for you. Blood, mead, whatever tapirs drink.

      • Dagon

        I want to go to Chicago to eat at 3 places. I feel terrible for that, because everyone tells me great things about the city. But I just obsess about these 3 items of food.

        • don’t blueball us like that, Dagon

          • Dagon

            If I knew you were in Chicago I would already be there caressing your golden locks. Pause.

            This is how the kids do it these days, right?

          • whoops, i don’t live in Chicago, i just meant which restaurants?

          • Dagon

            Besides my heart, where do you live?

            The Chi-Town Trinity -> Kuma’s Corner, and two places I can’t find the name but saw on TV a long time ago: a BBQ joint that forms a huge line on the streets and a place where you can get a sausage made from pig cheeks.

          • St. Louis, MO (5 hours from Chicago).
            been to Kuma’s Corner; it’s worth the trip!

          • Dagon

            I tried really hard to find the name of the other places but failed. One of my BR friends who did the exchange thing on the same year I did said good things about St. Louis.

          • KimJongUn’s Dingleberry Smoke

            Kuma’s Corner is fucking AWESOME! They have a new location in Lincoln Park, so you’d have a lot less chance of having to wait for 2 hours to get a table. Grant Achatz has a new place, Next, but just like Alinea, you have to book a reservation months in advance and it’s ungodly expensive. I’d also recommend Sinbad’s up on Belmont and Sheffield, as well as Sultan’s Market downtown. Fago De Chango is awesome too, especially if you like steak (which is pretty much neverending there), and Pompeii, which is an Italian cafeteria packed with awesome eats. Chicago 5-Way up on Barry and Broadway is excellent as well. Lol, I can go on forever about all the good eats back home.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          What are they?

      • KimJongUn’s Dingleberry Smoke

        For the most part, people there were pretty chill. Living on the southside though, you’ll get used to the gang assholes and wannabe thugs rather quickly. And junkies galore.

  • The Bad:
    1. I’ve got dick all for free cash so my music expenditures must be curtailed for a while.
    2. All the little assholes I tutor in religion and grammar decided that they no longer need tutoring so I’ve lost my sole source of income.
    3. I get to go give a ton of money to a doctor so that I can get immunized to tetanus for the fifteenth time.
    4. My heard hurts like a mother fucker because I slept wrong.
    5. I’m stressed with school work and trying to maintain good grades so I can wear a high honors sash at graduation like a boss.
    6. My History of Country Music class makes me want to hang myself because it is A) boring and B) the music is terrible.
    7. My ISP has been shitting the bed because of the snow and my internet has been ass for a few days.
    8. It snowed enough to get me two days off of school but now it is just fucking cold. I love the cold but this is a little too cold. I’m more comfortable around the ~35 range (1.67 in Celsius).
    9. I found out that Bruce Dickinson has cancer.
    The Good:
    1. I’ve got shelter, I’ve got food, I’ve got water, and I’ve got clothes. That’s better than about 3/4 of the world.
    2. I’ve found a pretty awesome apartment and secured a room.
    3. I’ve listened to some pretty stellar music this week (Revel in Flesh, Dio, Cattle Decapitation, Asphyx, and Blind Guardian are among my highlights).
    4. It’s spaghetti for dinner tonight, mother fuckers.
    5. I acquired some Motorhead gloves to keep my grubby little fingers warm.
    The Ugly:
    I don’t really have anything for here. My tendinitis in my right foot has hurt slightly more this week thanks to the cold.

    • BASEDBEARD

      Whereabouts in Boone did you find to live, Xan?

      • Meadowview. It’s about five minutes from campus.

        • BASEDBEARD

          Yep. Man, I kinda miss dat place.

          • I’m pretty excited (and slightly scared) about going. I’ll be there at least four years so to get my Master’s.

          • BASEDBEARD

            Its a great school, and a great place to live. When I went there, there were only about 12.5k enrolled. I think its more than double that now. They built 421 a 4-lane all the way up to main st., which i’m a little dubious about. Still beautiful there, though.

          • Indeed. My dad and I have been going up to the Blue Ridge Parkway since I was a baby. Some of my fondest memories as a child was going to Tweetsie. The only thing I’m not really happy about is that I’m going to have to deal with blistering cold weather. I like the cold but I am not a fan of weather that requires a tauntaun to get to school.

          • BASEDBEARD

            That was the best part.

    • History of Country Music? Please tell me that’s not a class you have to pay for.

      • Indeed it is. I need another 3 credit hours and they weren’t offering philosophy, American History, history of jazz, or abnormal psychology so I took that in lieu of some bullshit like calculus or health and P.E.

        • VVayne Brady

          I’d like to contend that calculus is not crap.

          • If you enjoy math. I’m math retarded. I’ve had to expend so much time, effort, and money just to keep on a reasonable level that it has built a resentment in me for it. I had to go into school and hour early for five years to keep me on an A level.

          • cosigned.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          History of Jazz could be cool, a lot of those dudes died drugged up and penniless. Abnormal Psych is trill.

          • I wish I could have taken Jazz. It’s one of the few genres outside of metal which I find tolerable.

        • Geez. Doesn’t sound like it would be much better.

    • old_man_doom

      That feel when you have no money for music. Hurts real bad, man.

      • On the positive side, it gives me time to finally go through some of the music that I’ve missed. I plan to go through the rest of Tiamat’s discography and listen to Ghost Bath.

        • old_man_doom

          I always like getting albums that I preordered months before. Got the the most recent Rwake the other day. I totally forgot about it, but it made my day. I have some Nile and Zombi reissues coming in another couple months too, so it should be killer.

        • KimJongUn’s Dingleberry Smoke

          Interviewed Anders from Tiamat years and years back. Everything from ‘Skeleton:Skeletron’ onwards is pretty forgettable though, once they more or less became a Sisters Of Mercy tribute band.

          http://graveconcernsezine.com/interviews/gothic/884-interview-tiamat.html

          For some reason, you have to highlight the thing in order to read it.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I listen to a lot of music that I don’t spend money on (unless you count my monthly internet bill and Spotify Premium).

        … I did not create this system. I do buy some albums still though.

  • Also good: I moved my dog’s bed into my room because it’s been at and around zero degrees for about a week now, and having him there just feels so much more comforting.

    Bad: Broke the headstock on my flying v this week. It’s repairable, but it’ll take a good amount of time and effort. Fvck.

    Good: Almost finished with “The Martian” by Andy Weir. Awesome book. Looking forward to the film adaptation.

    Ugly: I have to write a paper on Dostoevsky this weekend. For all its excellence, The Brothers Karamazov is a fucking nightmare as far as analysis goes.

    • Stockhausen

      Dang man, gettin’ all intellectual here. Don’t cave in on your own existence.

      • old_man_doom

        I have mini existential crises every time I finish a discussion about this book (and the Russians in general). Heavy shit.

        • Stockhausen

          I have a love/hate relationship with that feeling. Working through heavy music analyses of my own or reading intense musicology works bring my entire cognition crashing down, but it’s awesome having that sort of experience. It’s probably much more intense with Russian literature.

          • old_man_doom

            I get really severe and stoic, contemplating existence… and then I find videos of cats doing ridiculous things and all of that just evaporates instantly

    • VVayne Brady

      I’m a big fan of Crime and Punishment.

      • old_man_doom

        I’m getting into Tolstoy’s Sevastopol war stories soon as part of this class in Russian Realism. Really stoked about that.

        • VVayne Brady

          Nice! I’d like to read more Russian novels. I recently read the 5th book in the Night Watch series.

        • You and I could have some beautiful circle jerks.

          • VVayne Brady

            May I join? I have a still-unread copy of War and Peace.

          • old_man_doom

            Yessir. And by the way, there is a “George W. Bush” on MS right now. You need to destroy this poser asap.

          • VVayne Brady

            I’ll throw a shoe at him.

      Yep, that book is complex as hell. Been finally trying to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s ‘Autumn Of The Patriarch’, but like everything he ever wrote, it’s complex and free flowing as hell. I might just break down and read a bit of the last John O’Brien book I got instead. Nothing like reading the works of a suicidal alcoholic in the dead middle of winter!

    Da Gudgud: That new Liturgy (i<3beingdivisive). Its brilliant in a Liturgy way; also I'll get to see them in April. I got about 10 hrs of overtime, so I got some play money.

    Badbadnotgood: Because of the weather, all of my effeminate coworkers called out of work, rescheduling and backing up jobs all this week. I worked last saturday and was supposed to have this one off. I was also the only person that showed up every day this week, despite the weather. I'm super mad about this.

        WHADJOO SAY? WHO’S GOT A SPARE BOMB, MINE’S IN MY TRUCK.

        But seriously, I really dislike that we hijacked the term “football.” It makes absolutely no sense.

        • Lacertilian

          we did it here too Stocky, except they changed it to ‘Footy’ and apply it to Australian Rules Football, Rugby League & Rugby Union.
          I don’t like soccer so it doesn’t bother me.
          The part that bothers me is that for all three of the aforementioned sports, the majority of play is performed with the hands, not feet.
          I’m known for being a bit pedantic but with this I think I have reasonable grounds for disapproval.

          • KimJongUn’s Dingleberry Smoke

            Damn, haven’t watched rugby in ages. Rooting for my guys the All Blacks, as always!

          • Lacertilian

            Didn’t think many people from the USA followed rugby..the way the All Blacks have dominated the world for the last 15 or so years has been remarkable for a country of such a small population & size. Absolute beasts.
            Not many countries could boast such a record in world sport.
            Why do you follow them though? <—answer better be good.

          • KimJongUn’s Dingleberry Smoke

            Oddly enough, the Navy and Army play for charity here every year. Even my dad didn’t know that, and he’s retired from the Navy (and still works for them with the shipyard).

          • Lacertilian

            So why the All Blacks?
            It’s because of the pre-game Haka war dance right?

            that’s part of it, and they’re a freak of nature. Also liked South Africa for a while, when they have Cecil Africa. That motherfucker was basically the Michael Jordan of rugby!

          • Lacertilian

            Michael Jordan of Rugby would have to be Mark Ella

          • Skráðuskip Eg í Rassinn

            Show me a video of his where he outdoes Cecil Africa then! 😉

          • Lacertilian

            Mark Ella played during through the 70’s & 80’s, less video footage in those days unfortunately. Just looking at Cecil though, it appears he strictly plays 7’s, more of a Harlem globetrotter or a 2v2 half court champ than a Jordan.

  • JWG

    The Good:

    It’s Friday, almost 4PM. I have no immediate responsibilities (no students no assignments), so I’ve just been in the Sessional Office plugging away at nothing productive in particular, and that’s just fine.

    I had a call from a professional ‘headhunter’ call me earlier this week with respect to an open recruitment by a local company that’s in a Public-Private Partnership with the provincial Ministry of Health (for which I worked previously). The recruitment drive is for people with recent specific “Business Analyst” experience, whereas I’ve probably previously mentioned I’m more in the Information Analyst (including Data/Research Analysis) stream of Health Informatics professionals. This is not, however something to go in the “Bad” column because he promised to keep me in mind if he finds anything relevant to my particular expertise. It might not pan out into a job, but it’s still indicative of interest in my skillset that could easily translate to employment elsewhere.

    The inability for two people I really need to have faith in me in that respect, though, is…

    The Bad:

    This week alone I’ve “learned” that I am actually unemployable (beyond the Part Time Sessional pity-job the School supposedly gave me) because of:

    – The way I dress when I’m not at work
    – The type of films I chose to like
    – The type of music I chose to like
    – Advertising any of the above in any combination on my own personal time in public
    – My social media presence in which my deviant and antisocial music/film/clothing interests are put on display for friends, and their friends and – even worse – coworkers to see

    This has all come pretty much from my parents, who seem to have ended an uneasy but previously-unshaken 20-year ceasefire between me and them with respect to my career trajectory not being anywhere near what is their Standard (set by my younger sisters’ relative successes, but I’m definitely not allowed to call them out on that).

    I got a slight reprieve by pointing out the head-hunter contacting me in spite of much of the above being found on the internets once you know my full name (and location). But that, I have no Facebook “History” to be found since I carefully deleted everything I’ve ever posted, liked or hyperlinked; and hid the status updates that it won’t let me delete. Still, their lack of faith in my ability to keep my life and work distinct is annoying to say the least.

    I had to drop a class I had no purpose being in in the first place. Also, it wasn’t what the course catalog advertised. I mean it was a smart decision but I don’t like to just give up on things. But I didn’t need an elective destroying my GPA….anyways

    Bad – A wonderful friend of mine doing a course she isn’t really suited for seems be poised on the edge of dropping out for some months now but not wanting to get any advice about it. She suffers from depression and also enjoys a drink, sometimes things get on top of her and it reminds me of when I was in a similar position and it hurts to see someone I care about in a similarly bad place,

    Good – Just watched a pretty decent pinku, unusually straightforward and warm hearted for the genre. I generally prefer them nasty but this one was really rather charming. Pretty drunk, just listened to Black Cascade, presently going to go smoke a rollie and then probably lie in bed getting drunker and listening to Lord Mantis.

We already have 2 people not paying any rent (I can understand the one roomy’s situation, since she contributes to food and cooking, and has next to no income at the moment), and the landlord is going on a tear about a $1000 utilities bill. I’m honestly considering a move before summer ends, simply because I’d prefer my own place and something closer to the bus stop. Plus having 6 people crammed into such a small place gets aggravating and claustrophobic after a while.

    Good: Thankfully it’s been another chill and calm week for the most part. Bored a good bit of the time, but boredom definitely beats the fuck out of drama.

    Bad: Thursday and Friday were the coldest days in Hampton Roads since 1994. I trekked altogether about 4-41/2 miles to the grocery and back, while the sidewalks looked like fucking Dimmu Borgir (no, not the band).

    And still no calls back on the job hunt. Le sighhhhhhhhh………..

    The ugly: Bruce Jenner as his sex change goes along. It’s the ugliest post-op transition this side of Genesis P-Orridge.
