Flush It Friday: Sleep is for the Broke and Boring

This week, Flush It Friday is brought to you by a very cranky pumpkin baby by the name of HessianHunter.

The Bad: I am typing this at 4:30 AM the day of publication because my life is fucking absurd. I just worked about 17 hours between 8 AM Thursday and 4 AM Friday. I’m used to working long doubles between my two jobs, but this last day was particularly outrageous. Inexcusable, really. I missed seeing my friends play with Mutilation Rites because my coworker is on tour and I gotta cover for him. I feel like cold, wet garbage from staying up late for shows and getting up early to teach kids so many days in a row, and then working my other job where I bike food to drunk college kids in bone-freezing Minnesota winters.

I end up biking well over a hundred of miles a week in snowy, busy streets, starting and stopping constantly and swerving around idiotic/slow drivers. That shit makes me ache. Then I go play drums like Animal from The Muppets and get even more sore. Then I go see a sick band like Whores. play and drink and dance a bunch and get even sore-er-er. Then I sleep 4 hours and do the shit all over again. Almost every day. For years now.

All this bodily abuse is starting to get to me. My feet hate me for shoving them into tight-fitting clipless bike shoes so often. My calves scream for mercy when I start double-kicking at band practice after a full day of courier work. The knots in my neck muscles have a mortgage and two kids by now, they’re so old. Don’t even get me started on how chapped my ass gets from sitting in a bike saddle all day.

The Good: When I deliver on the darkest, coldest nights, no matter how bleak the roads, how cruel the winds, or hammered the Chads and Britneys on campus are, there is a light. My path is illuminated by my personal Lord and Savior of having a righteous time, the Party Pope himself, Andrew WK. Not only do his righteous jams fill my legs with vim and vigor, but this sage advice always gives me resolve for the long roads ahead, both literal and metaphorical.

 

 

I don’t generally complain about my long days, because really I’m a lucky sumnabitch to have two fun, well-paying jobs that are flexible enough to let me see and play a million show every month and even take extended time off to tour. I get to hang with kids and ride bikes for a living; some folks struggle to find any job at all, even a shitty one. My FOMO and near-manic drive to create and experience art have led me to have a deep and wide web of creative friends who do all kinds of dope shit all across the country. Another tour is approaching and I can’t fucking wait to spend hours and hours in a cramped van with my best friends and meet new homies all around the U.S.
Someday I’ll sleep. Until then, it’s time to party, and we will party hard.

The Ugly: I have worn the same pair of smelly-ass socks for the last 3 days of hard labor and playing shows. At this point I’m too scared to take them off because I have no idea what lies inside them; it’s probably not human feet anymore. Could be horse cock dildos molded from raw sewage for all I know. All I know for sure is it doesn’t just smell bad; it smells alien. I don’t recognize them as a part of my body anymore, and they terrify me.

OH HEY I GUESS IT’S TIME FOR AN OPEN SWIM. I’M GOING THE FUCK TO BED NOW BECAUSE I HAVE TO BE BACK AT WORK IN 3 HOURS. HERE’S A HEART WRENCHING VIDEO OF MY WAIFU ANNIE CLARK (ST. VINCENT) SAYING SHE LOVES ME. NO, NOT YOU, ME. SHE’S WITH ME, DAMMIT, OR LIFE ISN’T WORTH LIVING AT ALL.

    GOOD: I just walked outside in a tee shirt for the first time in months.

    I don’t have to be back to work until Monday at 6:00 am.

    My life. I have a good life.

    BAD: I want an iPhone 6, bad. For my NY trip and just because. Those fuckers are expensive. Big commitment for a guy who is about to be unemployed.

    UGLY: After a weird, tedious, and long work week at my ridiculous job, I have a blogger’s intent to create so I stopped at the mall on the way home. It’s gonna get ugly.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Disqus totally fucked me with this double image shit. I obviously didn’t upload the same image twice. Fuck me, right.

      • Scrimm

        That’s happened to me a couple times, and the damn sideways post.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Disqus fucking hates us all.

    • Good god. I drank one of those once. I honestly thought I was going to die (might have had something to do with mixing it with adderall though).

      • Dagon

        I feel like it’s appropriate to drop this here

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwqJym5rjqA

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I feel like it’s appropriate to drop this here too:

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1Khr45wT4o

          • Dagon

            I posted a track on them Facebooks I got a feeling you’re gonna dig.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            In the FB group?

            I’M AMERICA

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k47VVqMiUTg

          • Dagon

            Nah, on my timeline. Cocaine drinks made me think of this. The occasional ignorant track really clicks with me. Probably because of the trap beats.

          • Dagon

            That EL-P verse doe.

            I love this beat as well.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            The Cage verse on that track is fucking unreal. Dude fell off and that is too bad. Depart From Me had moments but overall it wasn’t very good and I didn’t even bother to listen to Kill The Architect. This is like the only post-DFM Cage track I dug.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4ROrk8Lwkk

          • Dagon

            I know exactly what you mean by falling out, I hate it when it happens to the rappers I like. The contrast in Cage’s rapping is evident when comparing both tracks you posted.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Oh, this is weird and tight.

          • Dagon

            I love this type of production on rap tracks

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m gonna play this one again, “Reports of a Possible Kidnapping”, “Mayan Stop Watch” and this jam and wander off for a little while, lol.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jzq2cmNQS5I

          • Dagon

            This is also ethereal and a bit off-kilter. The flow is more aggressive, though.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Ok playing this then wandering away, haha

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Peeping now.

            Coke and guns >>>>>>

          • Dagon

            Made all my favorite movies

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I feel like posting hip hop songs in these Flush It Fridays is kind of a tradition in its own right.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSvV5omRYJA

          • Dagon

            If it’s not a tradition yet will make sure to turn it into one. Come to think of it, coke and guns probably made a lot of people my patients when I was in the surgery rotation.

            Lot’s of kids getting shot/stabbed over trap shit here. Some of them were as young as 13.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Were there a lot of survivors among the people who were shot?

          • Dagon

            I’d say a vast majority of them. Young age and criminal enzymes go a long way in survival rates. If you work 3 jobs to support your family you won’t have the same luck. 🙁

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I was going to upvote you but considered the content, that’s sad.

          • Dagon

            It is. Some of them turn their lifes around, though.

            I have a professor who specializes in hand surgery – he is capable of stitching back a severed hand to the patient’s wrist preserving movement, sensibility. He is an amazing dctor.

            One of his patients was a thief, who got caught and got his hand chopped off by the locals before the police arrived. After a successful surgery, patient went unseen. Few years later and my professor bumped into the patient in Rio de Janeiro, the city he moved to after being operated. The ex-thief was now a store owner who employed 10 people. That’s one of my favorite stories.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            In my sobriety, I have met a lot of people with pretty amazing success / turnaround stories. Most people that attempt sobriety don’t achieve it in the long term, but sometimes people do and that shit is fantastic.

          • Ed – Based on your picks, I think you’ll enjoy this if you haven’t heard it already.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwDr-1hc8Cc&spfreload=10

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m pushing play on this now ( getting caught up on the party from yesterday)

          • My 2 yr old likes this, daddy does not approve. Erased from youtube history.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I have an album of theirs.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus
      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Joe we have talked this over (I think) but I used to fuck with Redline, which is like amphetamines for sober people and actually it’s like amphetamines anyways. I don’t have asthma and I thought I had an attack from drinking Redline once. Spike is way cleaner and still strong as shit.

        … I suspect the Adderall had something to do with it, too.

      • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

        When it comes to energy drinks, Lucozade or gtfo. Don’t bring that Rockstar, Monster shit anywhere near me.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Lucozade?

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            Its popular in the UK. Its not like Monster or Rockstar at all, its tastes like fruit juice. Its really nice.

          • Lacertilian

            Doesn’t have caffeine though right?
            I think it’s just B-vitamins and shit from memory..

          • Stanley

            Looks like piss. At least the kind we used get in school in the 80s. Come to think of it, it tasted like piss too.

          • Lacertilian

            Why you drinking piss?

          • Stanley

            To get the taste of pickled onion monster munch out of my mouth.

          • Lacertilian

            I don’t know what that is but if it involves pickled onions it must be horrid

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            True, but it still tastes really nice, like enough to drink without doing any strenuous activity.

          • Lacertilian

            they still sell it here.
            They even sell these little bottles of water with a Berocca tablet in the lid which when you open the bottle it drops the dissolvable tablet in. Pretty much the same thing as Lucozade but tastes more concentrated. Don’t know if you have them in England (is that where you are?)

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            I am in England, yes. If they do sell them, I haven’t seen them in either of the supermarkets outside of my college, and I go to both quite regularly.

        • I’m a coffee drinker now. No more drugz or energy dranks.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            As Richard Ashcroft once said, the drugs don’t work, they just make you worse.

          • Dagon

            Might be cliché but I still love this.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lyu1KKwC74

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            If you don’t you have no soul.

          • Lacertilian

            Wasn’t that one the copyright infringement with the Rolling Stones?

          • Dagon

            I drink coffee before workouts and a lot during the day. Be sure to get a nice calcium intake if you’re doing a lot of it because it might fuck your bones up on the long run.

          • YourLogicIsFlushed

            I think I saw you recommend an aeropress at some point. Best recommendation ever. I got one last month and now regular coffee tastes like nutsack.

          • It’s so good dude.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        Is it that effective? I might try it some day because I like energy drinks.

        • It was very effective at making me feel like a pile of shit.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            That sounds like a very painful experience.

    • Dagon

      Looking forward to seeing Eduardo go loco on them blog posts next week.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      GOOD: I have a legit ass mechanic through a buddy at work.

    • I used to love drinking cocaine in a can. Never again, my body said no the last time.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Cocaine energy drinks are the bomb. The red ones, not the blue ones. Can’t really get them around here anymore.

    • RustyShackleford

      What the fuck is that shit

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Spike? It’s an energy drink. V strong. I have to go to GNC in the mall to buy it. It’s legit. I’m having a chai tea first though. Waiting until like 6:00 pm to get into those. I’ll only have one or possibly two.

        • RustyShackleford

          Sounds TOO crazy haha. I’ll stick to my mountain dew

  • Tyreeling In The Years

    First off, I think everyone here at the Toilet should treat them selves with some
    nice beer when you get the chance tonight or this weekend or even now (If you don’t drink
    than you are just awful and I hate you). You Jerks done good this week, CHEERS!!!

    The Good: The fridge at the Grindhouse is stocked with beer and is ready to be
    ravaged upon. I also should be getting an order of albums today or tomorrow that
    I purchased online.

    The Bad: That asshole of a cat is still at my place. It takes every ounce of
    restraint to not crush that cat into bear food. I also have not played the drums in almost 2 weeks, I’m out of shape and I need to get back into the blast once again.

    The Ugly: Myself. I’ve gained 15 pounds in 2 months, I’m so fucking disgusting.

    • Scrimm

      Will be drinking later, no doubt.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Even me, Tyree? You hate Edward?

      • Tyreeling In The Years

        So much.

    • Dagon

      I will drink a beer in your honor tonight, good sir.

    • Tairí’s belly in next 2 months:

      http://www.decibelmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Acrania_Total_IM1-e1403740545166.jpg

      I think I will grab my sword today and go out really quick to buy a beer, I need to relax.

      • Tyreeling In The Years

        I hope I just die if I ever get like that.

      • EsusMoose

        Hope those pots/towers are filled with beer for tyree

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      You hate good old Eddie Trunk JR just because he’s not old enough to drink?

      • Lacertilian

        I thought your country was the land of the free?
        >18 = drinking.

      • Stanley

        Just steal it.

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          That’s hard to do when there’s no alcohol in my house.

          • Lacertilian

            Move to a different house

          • Stanley

            They do have stores in Poughkeepsie though, don’t they?

          • Based Tapir

            Stealing is illegal tho. Prison ain’t a place for our dear JJD.

          • Lacertilian

            What sort of country would allow their citizens to go to jail before the age they can drink?

          • Based Tapir

            He är under 18?

          • Lacertilian

            ?
            Everything is 18 here.
            If you can go to jail, you can vote, and if you can vote, you can drink to drown your sorrows.

          • Based Tapir

            People can’t drink when 18 in the US of A?

          • 21 holmes

          • Lacertilian

            But jail is 18 right?
            What about voting?

          • Everything is 18 but drankin’. This lead to a number of run ins with the law for a 18+ but under 21 Joe.

          • Lacertilian

            Kinda sucks too that if someone 18><21 from overseas travels there on holidays, they can't drink

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I will be 21 in 2016. I can’t wait.

          • Lacertilian

            and then from 25 onwards you wish you were 20 again

          • Dagon

            I drank tons of beer before I turned 21 in the US. Perks of being a wallflo… an old looking dude.

          • Based Tapir

            Ah, I see.

          • Lacertilian

            I forgot you don’t drink so this wouldn’t be common knowledge for you.

          • Stanley

            I didn’t tell him to get caught stealing.

          • A+++++ advice here

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Jane’s addiction was caught stealing once when they were 5.

          • Stanley

            Yep and look how successful they were/are.

          • JJM

            This made me laugh because of that song!

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            They do, but I’m not 21. I’m 19.

          • Stanley

            Do you have to be 21 to steal booze?

          • Lacertilian

            Fake ID?
            We had it good in our year because the drivers licence said 1984 and we could scratch off the edge of the 4 to make it look like a 1.
            It was passable that someone could look 3 years older than they really were.

    • Lacertilian

      The Grindhouse bar & jukebox?

    • more beer

      Lot`s of beer plus winter equals fat. Just do what I always do rub your belly and say it`s all paid for.

  • Dagon

    I was going to post medical pictures of feet but in respect of our fellow Toileters with weaker stomachs I will refrain from that.

    GOOD: I am alive and all my limbs are working. Really, you have no idea how lucky you are for that fact until you start spending more time with someone can’t move a part of their bodies. Even more so if that person lost movement well after birth.

    BAD: Fuck this week, seriously. It’s been a bad massage and I need a happy ending (Kanye-fidence). I have been studying like crazy, and the mental strain is getting to me.

    UGLY: This dude with a monster chin who’s in the same clinical rotation I am. WTF IS WRONG WIT YOUR FACE MAN

    • HessianHunter

      I was gonna post some nasty pics of my feet too, but decided against it due to both good taste and laziness.

      • Dagon

        What I lack in taste I more than make up for in laziness.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Fish God didn’t you say you worked out in the middle of a seventeen hour rotation or some crazy ish like that? Lol

          • Dagon

            Hahahah I’m still lazy af, honestly. For some reason I thought medical school was a good choice. Also need to make up for those bad metabolism genes.

            There’s nothing I’d like more than stay home everyday watching Netflix but it’s too late now.

      • Lacertilian

        Get motivated, wanna see bad feet for comparison!

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      FishGod you have already posted that trve disgusting shit in here enough, yeesh lol

    • Maik Beninton
  • Tyreeling In The Years

    HessianHunter, when I was on tour I didn’t change my pants for a week. They were so goddamn crusty.

    • Dagon

      Were you also going commando for the week? That’s extra crust points

      • Tyreeling In The Years

        Dude! I could bend my pants and they would stay in that position. It was a work of art!

        • Dagon

          I don’t think you would manage to last a week in the same pants in my neck of the jungle. Shit is DANK out here, mane. Humidity never drops below 82%.

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            Well, each night they were drenched in sweat and beer, so…

          • Dagon

            When Scab tours South America you will be tested.

          • Tyreeling In The Years

            Oh dear.

          • #ScabSouthAmericanHolocaust2015

            First Brazil, then Maracaibo.

            Crusty pants, balls sticked in leg because vltimate sweat.

            DIE IN SWEAT.

    • Stanley

      And on the 5th day, Tyree turned his underwear inside out.

  • VVayne Brady

    The Good: This new Carly Rae song.

    The Bad: Not much this week, actually.

    The Ugly: My car from driving around in the dirty snow and ice all week.

  • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

    Good: It was my mum’s birthday today, and the whole family was downstairs and some of my mum’s friends came around for a bit. It was really entertaining to hear some of their anecdotes, and my brother was hilarious, as he always is.
    Bad: The problems I had last week continued into this week. I keep wanting to apologize to them for acting like a prick, but knowing me I’ll just make things even worse. Its a shame, they’re good people too (The people I acted like a prick to I mean, not the arseholes who fucked me over, those guys can jump off a bridge).
    Ugly: Someone in Media got some really cool shirts this week, and I’m jealous and I want them.
    If you watch Hannibal, you’ll see why.

  • HessianHunter

    Really though if Annie Clark saying she loves you doesn’t melt your heart, you are a robot with no soul.

  • RustyShackleford

    THE GOOD: Back to the city tomorrow, get to see my buddies play a show in brooklyn sunday, first metal show in forever!

    The Bad: Even though i get a week off of school, work up the ass.

    The Ugly: After burrito and beer last night plus lots of dew and a sandwich for lunch, i got some funky ass poops

  • Scrimm

    Good: Tax return came in.
    Good/bad: Pretty strong connection for a job prospect, but nothing has come of it yet
    Bad: There’s still only 4 Phantasm movies, Have to finish moving out of my rehearsal studio tonight.
    Ugly: got some massive family drama that is likely to explode this weekend.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I feel you on the family tip, my family is nuts for real.

      • Dagon

        My mom likes to say that the most normal person in our family “eats shit”. I wouldn’t be the surprised if that turned out to be true, considering all the crazy shit I’ve seen.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I might be stretching here, but I feel like I am the most normal person in my immediate family and that is saying something.

          • Dagon

            I feel the same way you do. Most of my “weirdness” is out of people’s sight because I have very dark places in my mind I usually don’t express. Some of my family members appear to have zero thoughts on their brains but show tons of craziness with their actions. I don’t even feel comfortable sharing it here and I usually say a lot of personal stuff.

            I get that.

          • i’m normal.

            Naah, not really 😛

      • Scrimm

        It sucks in a lot of ways cause it’s stressing people out, but I’m glad it’s about to come to a head, even though I will likely have to get physical. We have an unrepentant thief who’s been getting away with shit for way too long.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          I wish you luck if / when that shit happens.

          • Scrimm

            Thanks man but I shouldn’t need it. I have years of training and said person is a loudmouth who never backs up his talk and has the endurace of an 80 year old man with emphysema.

          • Dagon

            If I ever turn 80 with emphysema I’m moving to Vegas with my oxygen tank. Fuck it.

    • Isn’t a good thing that Hollywood hasn’t touched Phantasm yet? I’m actually shocked they haven’t remade it. I heard they are rebooting Halloween…….again WTF.

      • Scrimm

        It actually came really close to happening about ten years ago, they were on the verge of selling the rights and it was a planned new trilogy. Not a complete remake however as Mike and Reggie were supposed to show up in the film and help a new group of kids battle the Tall Man. So glad it didn’t happen but now that this is supposed to be the final film(and given certain cast members age and meeting them in person I can say with confidence that is is) I bet it happens before too long. I hate that about Halloween but I am such a Myers fanboy I’ll be there opening day like a dumbass.

  • DeadButtDreaming

    The good: no slag on my bag after a week of non-stop welds on 18″ A333 shit pipe. Also, home early for five days due to a schedule change. Also, I am non-stop jamming Vemod, Belzebong and Pallbearer.

    The bad: I dont get enough time to roll coal due to obligations to hang out with people that I only like because of the girlfriend.

  • The good: Tension/stress has relieved dramatically. I no longer fear my boss driving down from up North to put my head on a spike. Also, playing with A Sound of Thunder tomorrow

    The bad: My laziness/complacency has put me in a deep hole I’m trying to climb out of. I am working very hard, which is why I don’t post on here lately.

    The ugly: Charlotte is the best for live music, but there’s 4 shows tomorrow and my friends are splitting up all over the place because they’re either playing the shows or are having to make tough choices on which event to choose. Each show is ace.

    Sounds like everyone’s been having a not-so-good time lately.

    The Good: spring break starts next week, so maybe I’ll be able to decompress a little.

    The Ugly: what comes out of you after a day of drinking with no food.

    The Good: Yesterday, on a day off work, I dragged my drumkit down to the rehearsal space, and on the common room’s notice board I noticed this notice.

    The Bad and The Ugly: In the rehearsal room next to mine was a solo singer-guitarist practicing – some dude with a beard and a man-bun – and fuck: THAT GUY WAS YARLING LIKE NOBODY I’VE EVER HEARD, on the radio or off. He was like the bastard offspring of Eddie Vedder and Scott Stapp on Warp Ten. It was barely lunchtime but dude was yarling at the moon. It went all day long. I wish I could’ve bootlegged it so y’all could behold the mighty yarl. My blast beats were NOT drowning it out.

    I think he might’ve been a Christian Rock yarler too; cuz some of the lyrics were like “Ah’hr schtihrl b’lerierve irn Jeeezerresuhrs!”

    • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

        He was full-on, man. He really was; my descriptions aren’t doing it justice. If I’d had my lap-top with me, I would’ve knocked on the door and shown him that Metalsucks article from last year about the Top Ten Yarlers of All Time. It would’ve been a sobering experience for him if he has any self-awareness at all.

        • VVayne Brady

          Joe and I agree that that post was the best thing Vince ever wrote.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            Ahh, Vince pre-Babymetal, those were the days.

          • Max

            Thirded.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I agree but the Tantric guy deserved the #1 spot because he’s actually a good yarler.

          • Scrimm

            For me it was that one and the post where he showed a quote of some drummer saying Lars was the best and then the whole post was HAHA’s
            Edit: OOPS that was AXL.

        • Scrimm

          Other people at a rehearsal studio with multiple rooms is comic gold. The morons in the room next door to the one we just gave up were so fucking bad, face paint and dead seriousness and all, but the best was this guy that used to live there and sing 80’s covers, talking to an imaginary crowd between songs.

          • Max

            An imaginary crowd! That is dedication.

            We once had a terrible gothic metal band next door called Wasted Elegance (logo written in that typical cursive font that people nowadays use for their neck tatts), with the cliched beauty-and-the-beast male/female vocals and all. We used to refer to them as Wasted Riffs.

            I once saw their CD. Moody goth metal portraits plus the track listing all in that same “elegant” cursive font, which is a bit incongruous when you’ve got song titles like “Your Fucked.” PAY A PROOF READER WHEN YOUR RELEASING ALBUMS, PEOPLE.

          • Scrimm

            HAHAHAHA! Here’s the jokers next door. ALready posted this on another thread a while back but worth a repeat. http://www.fatalmalady.com

          • Max

            Just checked it out. I’d give Papa Malady extra cred points if his hair was as high as Wayne Statix’s.

          • Scrimm

            It’s hilarious when they have a show cause they get all made up before leaving and them come back with it still on. I really think they think it makes them look cool. I’m so glad we won’t have to listen to them every friday night anymore

          • Max

            Time to break out the big guns…

            One of the local bands I’ve crossed paths with are these people:

            http://www.thebabesrock.com/

            They’re not TOO bad in the context of what they are, but their tendency for rabid self-promotion goes far beyond their songwriting and playing abilities. Especially the drummer. She’s very ordinary but is convinced she’s a goddess on the skins. She is also currently involved in a money-raising venture for her dad’s cancer treatment which will involve doing a drum solo in a local shopping precinct, non-stop, for 24 hours. Bear in mind this is somebody who hits way too hard and doesn’t really keep accurate time for more than a bar or two (unless edited in the studio).

          • Scrimm

            OMG GROSS HAHAHAHAHA!

          • more beer

            Shouldn`t there be 4 chicks in a band with that name?

          • Max

            You would assume so, wouldn’t you? Not sure I’d want to be one of the guys.

            Whenever talking to the guitarist, my favourite game was just using the word “babe” as gratuitously as I could. As in , “Hey babe, how’re you babin’? Ready to babe it up onstage with the babes, babe?” Kinda like how smurfs use the word “smurf” incessantly.

          • more beer

            I fully expected to see 4 females. I know I wouldn`t want to be one of these guys. I`m an old school guy who thinks a man should act like a man. God that has to be emasculating. You doing that babe thing has got to be so funny. Does this guy even get that you are fucking with him? I tip my beer to you!

          • Max

            The guitarist I was talking to is one of the two girls (they’re sisters). She’s pretty hot actually. The two guys are their boyfriends, and their dad was the manager; so I don’t think the guys get too much say in the artistic directions of the band.

            They’re all perfectly nice people, but they’re a bit deluded, I think. I know somebody else who is the former vocalist, and he just got sick of dealing with ’em. I also know a recording engineer who did their EP; he said it was an editing nightmare.

            But you’re right – my “babe” schtick would be even funnier if I was talking to the bass player.

          • more beer

            Damn the guys are musical cuckolds that is horrible. We both know the results of bands that rely on hot chicks as a selling point. The comments are usually ” but tits”. I just looked at the first picture and saw two guys in a band called Babe and that was enough for me. It`s still funny you saying that babe thing to any of them especially if they don`t get it. It sounds like they are just hard to get along with nice people or not. I still tip my beer to you.

      • Max

        Not sure about that. Yarlers sing out of their bottom lip. Bob Dylan sings out of his nostrils.

  • Good: It’s spring break and I have very little work to do over it. I also feel pretty good after writing about half and album’s worth of lyrics for my work on next installment in my erotic astronaut epic.

    Bad: Had to go to the doctor yesterday and got pumped up with vaccines because I haven’t been in a decade. The drew blood which left my arm kind of sore. Hopefully my cholesterol level will be acceptable. Blood pressure is a little high but nothing to worry about. Hearing is perfect.

    Ugly: I’ve got a boil on my leg which I plan to lance tonight. I don’t expect it to be clean.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I just went in for some testing for the first time in years. I don’t do the doctor that much – clean living I guess.

      • I don’t drink, smoke, or do drugs so I’ve got that going for me. Unfortunately, I’m overweight so that could use some work. I actually just got a call from the doctor. Cholesterol is fine. Only bad thing is my hemoglobin level is slightly low (probably because I eat essentially no meat because it tears my stomach apart) and I have a hypothyroid which causes me not to lose weight very easily when exercise and makes it so that I always feel hot. I’ve now go to go see a specialist about that and probably end up getting on medication to help with it. #HealthProblemsAreMetal

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          My testing was STD testing at the request of my new girlfriend. Came back negative! Also metal as fuck, lol

            I dodged a huge bullet with that once, not sure how, but quite thankful.

      • Stanley

        It’s surprising how often “healthy” people drop dead. Sick people go to the docs a lot and are always getting check ups so they know when things are going south and therefore can get the appropriate care and meds. “Healthy” people don’t go to the docs and are unaware of the insidious goings on in their bodies until it’s too late. Check ups are good thing…for everyone!

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          Damn, I should go get a real physical. You’ve convinced me, Stan!

          • Stanley

            At least your privates are in good working order and won’t require additional scrutiny.

          • Scrimm

            See my above comment and don’t make the same mistake.

        • Scrimm

          My dad man, didn’t go to a doctor for probably over 30 years except for a finger injury at work. By the time he did finally go it was too late.

          • Stanley

            Yep. My dad has loads of issues so is always at the docs. His friends of the same age (75ish) are scared of the doc and are dropping like flies. These are the same friends that are scared of the dentist and thus have no teeth. You would think that they would have put 2 and 2 together by now.

          • Scrimm

            Good on your dad. Mine should have seen it coming cause his dad went pretty much the exact same way, although quite a bit older. My dad was only 58.

          • Stanley

            Wow. 58. Too soon.

          • Scrimm

            Definitely.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            That’s one thing I do, go to the dentist every six months and pay their outrageous fee out of my pocket to do so.

          • I’m lucky that my father is a dentist so I never really had problems going there.

      • Scrimm

        Until this past summer I hadn’t been to a doctor in 12 years. Needless to say I was somewhat worried of what might be found.

    • Tyreeling In The Years

      I get nasty sore boils on my back and shoulders. Bad acne is a bitch.

  • EsusMoose

    Good-first weekend in a month where I don’t have to rapidly code, started the swole workout paris wrote, legs hurt and I have steaks I’ll be cooking for my roommates.
    Bad-I’ve gotten sick and just had random small symptoms that have messed with my days
    Ugly- Social interactions with people seemed to go poorly this week, nothing too major just I felt I came off wrong more times than normal.

  • Dagon

    For something completely different – this guy’s voice gives me the chills since I was a little kid. The lyrics are hauntingly beautiful too. “Assum preto” is a form of bird that’s used in the song as a metaphor for someone who sings in pain.

  • nbm02ss

    The Good: The weekend is upon me, and I’ve lost 20lbs since December. I’ve never been obese, but the extra pounds I put on after a car accident in ’13 that left my neck and back in a mess, I’ve felt incredibly uncomfortable in my own skin. It’s good to be able to work out again. Also, I have beer.

    The Bad: My job sucks, and I’m now having to basically do two jobs, because the guy whose job directly affects mine is a fucking slug. Time to find something else, me thinks.

    The Ugly: Why did I have Mexican last night? Copious amounts of cheese ruins me. I think I’m becoming lactose intolerant; should probably get that checked out soon.

    • Lacertilian

      Missus started drinking lactose free milk and I was too lazy to get fullcream decided it would be a good idea for me too, and now I sneeze much less, I found I would sneeze after eating/drinking bulk dairy previously.

  • Bad: next weekend I have to deliver my pre-thesis project for the master and some other time consuming stupid ASSignment. i have procrastinated as hell those. Also, I’m having again some pain in my right hand and right elbow because I had to work a lot editing some texts. Day 390: i’m still afraid of carpal tunnel syndrome, but I have so much work that I’m barely having some runs around the campus to rest from the clicks. This freaking country.

    Good: you accepted me as another writer, thanks for that. My family’s support. My lovely fiancée. You all rule.

    Ugly: My boss is leaving the work, and some random guy that I despise will be my boss; glad that I self manage all of my stuff and I don’t tend to communicate too much with boss because I’m an angry anarchist half-elf. The voice of three of my co-workers; is insane how nasal it is, so obnoxious and lousy. The face of one of them, everytime I see him I think a lot of giving him a bread bag, he have this large weird face with two rabbit teeths and little eyes… This freaking country.

          • First time listening.

            The voice is very classic rock, not my cup of tea. But I can pass it.

            But, the instrumentation is very good. Thanks, mr. Lizard. I will check more of this band!

            Very appreciated.

          • Lacertilian

            Cool, just thought I’d see if it was something you might enjoy.

          • I’m always open for new recommendations. And more if they come from a lizard friend!

  • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

    Good: Rather chill week yet again (on my end at least), and my birthday is 11 days from now. Is it me or does time past quicker after you hit 30? The years have pretty much zipped on by since then. And got the Drew Stone interview done and sent over to the TOH staff.

    Bad: Having to move downstairs sometime in the near future. All depends on when my one roomy is getting the boot, which is official. It’s all a matter of when at this point. Don’t have much to move, but it’s still tedious. And as usual, my sinuses are driving me up the wall.

    Ugly: The mugshot roundup on The Smoking Gun.

    • I will check that this weekend. This has been a swirling chaotic clusterfuck of a week.

      • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

        No problem, cina-swole! :-p

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I think it goes like this: the older you get, the smaller a fraction of your life each segment of time is (for example, a year). When you are a baby, a year is this huge chunk of your life. Same with being a little kid. When you are 30, a year in only 1/30 of your life. I think it goes faster when you get older. Speaking of which, I turn 33 in July. Same age Jesus was when he got crucified.

      • Max

        I’ll be turning 40 in less than a month’s time! The same age as the chief protagonist in a British sitcom from the ’70s called “Life Begins at Forty.”

      • Lacertilian

        I’m sure zzzzzzzzz could come up with an alternate reason.

    • I must be in the minority but time is going slow for me and I will be 40 next year.

      • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

        Well, I spent a chunk of my early 30’s drinking a fifth a day, so that might explain things. Time flies when you’re either too oblivious to it, or passed out.

        • Lacertilian

          1/5th?
          Lucky you didn’t drink the whole thing!

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            Quite often did. Long fucking nightmare about that, and thankfully I had just one shot of hard liquor last year that a friend shared with me. I stick with beer and here and there, some wine. I had a shitload of problems when I was slamming hard liquor for 3 years straight, and nowadays I don’t even like it, TBH.

          • Lacertilian

            Nevermind my shitty subtle attempt at taking a stab at the imperial system, I had to look up what a 1/5th was. For me it just means 20%.
            A 700mL bottle a day is def not healthy.

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            Yeaaaaaah. Thankfully those days are long gone and never ever coming back.

  • Stanley

    The good: Going here for tonights beer consumption. http://www.cellarmakerbrewing.com They have something called Dank Williams – Double IPA 8.4% ABV / 82 IBU.

    The bad: This jet lag sucks. Haven’t slept properly for a week.

    The ugly: The bags under my eyes.

    • Dagon

      That ABV is seductive.

      Unrelated: a burger joint from San Diego started following ToH’s instagram page.

      • Stanley

        Hmm. I don’t know if I would frequent a Burger Joint that that follows the Toilets’ goings on. Do they follow other plumbing related businesses?

        • Dagon

          I hope not.

      • whats next a toilet ov hell inspired burger. The Flush PreVeals burger.

        • Scrimm

          There was a bar right outside the base I was stationed at that sold a few different kinds of “Shitburger.”

        • Stanley

          Chicagoans. Has anyone been to this place? The Churchburner sounds like it will send you straight to the khazi.

  • SUNLIGHTBEARD

    The good: my new debit card finally arrives from the credit bureau after weeks ov waiting. Also payday.

    The bad: leg day wrekt me, and I’m sore (swole) all over.

    The ugly: whereas I thought I had the next two Saturdays off, I now have to work them. They scheduled 29 jobs for 4 people tomorrow. Fml. Slangin glass.

    Sidebar: the pumpkin baby seems like a cool dude and I want to add to list of bros.

    • Dagon

      Dude, my leg day was today and I left the gym shaking. I feel you.

      The pumpkin baby is responsible for a lot of solid recs that turned out to be on a steady rotation here. Oozing Wound and Humanfly just to name a couple.

      • SUNLIGHTBEARD

        Yeah man, squats, reg dead lifts, straight leg dead lifts, bent over rows, and my usual shoulder work at the gym last night. Brutal

        Also hip bridge thrusts, which I could write a whole swellin article praising

        • Dagon
          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            Read up on Stafon Johnson.

        • Lacertilian

          I don’t think I’m deadlifting correctly, it just feels wrong. I’m not using much weight yet because I don’t want to injure myself but it still feels awkward.

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            What do you mean?

          • Lacertilian

            I’m a noob at getting swole.
            Just started doing deadlifts with a barbell and I’m shit at it, even with little to no weight. Maybe because I’m tall?? (6’3″ or how ever you crazy yanks measure things)

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            No, I mean, where are you feeling the activity? Are you feeling strain somewhere?

          • Lacertilian

            lower back and neck, but because I’m not using much weight it doesn’t strain so much as feel awkward.

          • Scrimm

            Some people in my experience just don’t like them, myself being one of them. I only do dumbells with moderate weight.

          • Lacertilian

            check out the above video dude, I know you can’t get down with the vox but they’re removed on this playthrough.

          • Scrimm

            I’ve liked what I’ve hear musically so far a lot better than the last album. They might get one more chance out of me

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            I’m a tiny guy (5’6, 135 lbs). I’m not bragging, but I walk, and keep a pretty good diet. Even working a restaurants and drinking, I can’t past 150 pounds. Weightlifting more than a bag of Doritos would be a deathwish for me.

          • Scrimm

            Ever tried any supplements?(I’m talking legal nutritional supplements, not roids)

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            I eat alot, but I think my hypoglycemia has alot to do with it. I eat alot of fiber and grains, and shit like a dinosaur.

          • Scrimm

            Some people do have a hard time gaining mass, but there’s always a way. You just hace to find the secret tht makes your body respond.

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            I’m quite happy being small (except where it counts). :-p
            Me with a huge body mass would look weird as hell!!!!

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            It sounds like to me that you’re trying to do what I was calling straight leg deadlifts, and not regular deadlifts. A traditional deadlifts starts in a near seated position and uses the legs to push upward. Keep your heels planted and lift with your ass, not your back. Your back should be kept upright thru the whole motion

          • Lacertilian

            I’m kinda doing a similar motion to a squat then I read to sorta roll the bar up your legs, which is hard because my knees are bent. So my back should be perpendicular to the ground throughout?
            I might just stick to squats for a while <—-rook

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            Ift you can do a squat, you can do a deadlift. Your back should be perpendicular with squats, as well. Or close to it. And DO NOT roll the bar up your legs. The only thing you should be concerned about is clearing your knees,being so tall.

          • Lacertilian

            Thanks swolebeardbro, i’ll try on Monday with a renewed sense of (over)zealous vigour

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            Yay my comments aren’t erroneous for once!

          • Lacertilian

            what you mean?
            Teles?

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            Nah, I just usually am off topic or just wrong :(:(:(:(:(

          • Lacertilian

            I think that is the only wrong thing you’ve said.

            Apart from Teles, of course.

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            Man, you should talk to my old lady. Also, let it be known that I only play Jacksons, esps, or ibanezes

          • Lacertilian

            If she can’t be swayed by the musings of a rampant pirate what chance could a wee Leezard have?

            Although, I really like these Ormsby guitars that Joe Haley is using, they’re from Western Australia.

            http://youtu.be/VPz7AFkiBCU?t=1m45s

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            Man that’s pretty rad. Look how close the neck pickup is to the neck, itself. It looks like a lot of those stylish double cuts. This dude is also way better than me, that’s why I put in auto glass for a living

          • Lacertilian

            I was asking him about the angular fretboard last time I saw them live and he said it was for intonation. Interesting stuff.

          • SUNLIGHTBEARD

            It’s an interesting guitar. The finish and underlay look rel cul.

          • Lacertilian

            He spent a good deal of time answering my questions and ignoring my blatant drunkeness. Just as I decided it was time to leave him alone, my friend came over and said I should get his autograph. Autograph, wtf?
            Then he said he’ll at least take a photo for us, I never think of shit like that being a non-instagram/tumblr/TakePhotosOfPeople kinda person.

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            Steve Irwin did have a pretty different way of emphasising words, you have done well sir.

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            Sadly I’ve watched the Crocodile Hunter movie. Did anyone there actually watch it?

          • Lacertilian

            I didn’t know there was one, I think the majority of his target audience was in the USA & UK.

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            It’s as horrible as you’d think, probably worse.

          • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

            Off topic? In my Best Korea, Fark and this Toilet?!? It’s more likely than you think!

            BTW, speaking of Australia, might I slide this over to you?

            I don’t do the whole symphonic power metal thing but I can appreciate it. Just not something I crave to hear when I come home from a shit day at work.
            In short, I’m a poser who deserves to be slain.

    Good: I don’t know, sunflowers?
    Bad: When 30mg of codeine won’t end hangovers and unexplained insect/spider bite marks on your chest that remain swollen, itchy and burning for 4 days straight.
    Ugly: The colour of my leg from bruising

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    GOOD: I’m about to smash on leftover tacos from Wednesday night. Then I’m going to smash on one of the Spike energy drinks I showed you guys earlier. I got a pint of green tea Haagen Dazs stashed here too and a bunch of import snus. Blogger’s paradise.

    • SUNLIGHTBEARD

      That’s a farking party, ed

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        A meal fit for a king.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I’m looking forward to whatever interview you cook up next, BXXXXBXXXX. I already said this but that Ghost Bath interview ruled buttz.

        • SUNLIGHTBEARD

          Thanks, brother. My next articles won’t be interviews, though. I won’t do another one until a band I adore accepts it. Stay xxx

    • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

      Don’t let it be tacos from you know where, or Joe’s gonna unleash the fury! At this point, I doubt he can pass by there and not drop to his knees and scream to the icy heavens above.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        They were homemade and bomb.com lol

        I agree though. I think Joe’s mind has been permanently stained and altered by The Taco Place That Shall Not Be Named.

        • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

          He probably wakes up in a cold sweat at night when it invades his dreams.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Hahaha

            not again!

      David Byrne is good on everything I’ve heard him work on.
      I think I need to do some homework and get more of his art.

      • Supreme Chief Poopypanties

        Yep! I couldn’t get into his solo stuff and his whole Luca Bop thing, but perhaps I might have to give that a try again someday.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    I just got off a plane. Beer.

  • J.R.

    The Good: The Frozen South has prevented school once again. I went to Olive Garden with Lady J.R., and went to my Painting Teacher’s gallery debut, so we got to be fancy fancy art people all night.
    The Bad: We finished Gilmore Girls, which we have been watching since October. Shut your flushing faces, I am still kvlt as fvck, all submit to my omniscience.
    The Ugly: My wallet, after this week on the Toilet. Also, my toilet after Olive Garden.
