Flush It Friday: South by South Wrest

Welcome back to Flush It Friday, our weekly exercise in bitching about that which irks us and celebrating that which does not vex us.

THE BAD: I live in Austin. It’s a pretty cool place if you can stand the extreme heat, terrible traffic, and endless white foolishness. Once a year this city fills up to beyond bursting with hordes of drunk, entitled adults with giant badges covering the entirety of their atrophied chests. They all come for South by Southwest, a yearly exercise in corporate branding, dehydration, and waste. Austin is a party town and I fully get it. But this is how I feel when the entire city is shut down because Frito Lay built a goddamn 2-block wide Doritos vending machine in the middle of downtown.

THE GOOD: I got a promo of the new Deez Nuts album. Expect a review. In the meantime, it got me all like:

Mom Mosh

Matrix Mosh

Honda Mosh

THE UGLY:

It’s your turn to share below. Friday forever.

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    GOOD, BAD, UGLY: I lost my job today, as expected. I’m about to drive home from here for the last time. One lady I like a lot started to cry. I thanked the guy who let me go for not dragging it out two more weeks.

    • : /

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        Omg that elbow I remember seeing that shit.

    • bruh! 🙁

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        I’d upvote you guys, but it’s tough to upvote sad faces.

        It’s a bit sad.

    • tertius_decimus

      ToH should open social club for those who lost his job. I do feel for you, dude. Keep the positive mood and start searching for the job ASAP.

    • Hopefully you get a taste of that government cheese.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        That’s happening. I’ll be cashing Obama checks in no time. Without getting into all the gory details (even though let’s be real, I’d be happy to) I’m not going to start looking until April 13th.

        • If you can afford to do it take some leisure time. I enjoyed the one time I was on unemployment. 3 months of doing nothing. I have no idea how I found a new job being such a lazy piece of shit.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            I was on unemployment once for about 5 weeks. It sucks. I was working odd jobs making skrilla under the table the whole time. You can’t survive well on unemployment funds.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I can draw a pretty healthy unemployment and my roommate pays rent. My take home will be pretty decent for a dude with no job. It will only be slightly more than half of what I was taking home at peak income working full time, though.

    • LobsterAttack

      Gah. No good, man. To your credit, it sounds like you handled it as well as could be hoped for.

    • St. Louis hugs your way, Edward. (they’re like 1/20th as cool as the Venezuelan ones)

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        Don’t you get shot and stabbed in a St. Louis hug? That’s just mean Jimmy!

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          A New York hug is that in a nutshell.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Shit, St Louis is way more dangerous than NY anymore.

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      Good luck Edward.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        I’ve been searching for a job since October. My hunt might finally be drawing to a close though.

  • Stanley

    Flush Hells Headbangers. Still no Deathhammer. I want my money back. I could have earned at least 0.00000000001 cents interest.

  • Guacamole Jim

    The Bad: I was supposed to go to the mountains this weekend with my folks, but a rather inconvenient dump of snow stopped that plan in its tracks.

    The Good: Instead, I’m heading to a party tonight, where there is a particular lady attending who I am quite fond of. I feel a bit like I’m back in high school, with the adrenaline in the gut in anticipation of offhand social interaction with her. Wish me luck, my toilet pals.

    The Ugly: All day yesterday I felt like I had to take a massive poop, but every time I sat down on the Toilet, nothing happened. Then today, my body resumed its regular poop schedule. WTF.

    • tertius_decimus

      Good luck with the girl.

      • Guacamole Jim

        Thanks dewd! Fingers are crossed.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Jim, just get the girl, she’ll love you too, you’ll rock her world

            That sounds boring. At least you can have BDUBS on this great day. Crap, I forgot I can’t eat meat today and I had a meatball!

          • Guacamole Jim

            Pretend it’s Sunday. Problem solved.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I don’t want to make God angry. It seems like it won’t go well.

          • I think I’ve blasphemed a few dozen times today. So far so good!

          • Guacamole Jim

            God is pretty cool with you messing up a season invented and instituted by humans. I think you’re okay.

      I know that feeling Jim. I feel that whenever I see any of my female friends I had crushes on.

    • Strengthen the pimp hand and get your girl.

    • Good luck from the guy who can’t even talk to girls without getting nervous.

    • Dagon

      Bro, you got this. You’re like the third best looking Toileter.

        Aww, thanks dude! She is a wee bit out of my league though, no lie.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            Unless you’re me. I have no chance at all. My go to response when I find someone I like is to give up immediately as I will just embarrass myself if I try.

          • Dagon

            I used to be on that bullshit myself but you shouldn’t sell yourself that short. Are you the type to second guess if womyn are clearly interested as well?

          • I had a crush in my teenager days. But, Mrs. Leonhart teach me that in a relationship the connection depends on the acts, attitude, vibe and intelligence, more than anything.

            It’s also a good thing have a good image of yourself to project it.

          • Dagon

            Your charisma is evident, my friend.

            How long have you and the missus been together?

          • 5 years next week!! 😀 <3

          • Dagon

            Nice! Learn to cook something for her as a surprise

          • I cook! I think I will, thanks for the advice!

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            No, I generally have the assumption that they are not interested. I am an awkward fuck, and I fully admit that.
            Besides, I’ve got other things to worry about, like getting a job and college work and trying to find a way to unfuck myself from this situation I’ve talked about the past month or so.

          • LobsterAttack

            Some women think awkwardness is attractive. To them it can imply honesty when other, “smoother” dudes come across as contrived.

          • actually, you should embarrass yourself in front of the ladies. many like that

      • Dagon

        Keep in mind to kill metaphorically unless you have a large trunk in your car and a carpet in hand.

        • old_man_doom

          Yes. Note: Old Man Doom cannot and will not claim responsibility for any crimes you may commit due to a misinterpretation of an intentionally metaphorical phrase on this blog. Be advised that Dagon, however, may or not have just given you the go-ahead to kill in a literal way.

        I think things went well. I’d be surprised if she felt the same kind of feeling, but we did manage to have an excellent talk.

          Here you go man. You’ve earned it.

  • Tyree

    Good: Being scalped alive while having salt poured over the wound as the skin is pulled
    back from your skull ever so slowly. Beer drinking is mandatory during this process.

    Bad: Having to sit in an office surrounded by awful humans.

    Ugly: Human flesh. Rid of it violently with a dull butter knife and bathe in the
    buoyancy of salt and citrus.

    Have a delightful Friday.

  • Sir Tapir the Based

    Bad: the lack of snow here (kiitos Jim)
    Good: Dødheimsgard, Leviathan, Tähtiportti and my doggies

    Good: Thieving pussy brother of mine got called out by the family.
    Bad: of course it had to happen when I wasn’t there.
    Ugly: The subject of both above.

      Bad: nothing.
      Ugly: your music, but in a good way.

      • Scrimm

        Hey thanks man!!!

    • i’m with link… can’t wait to get ahold of that full album!

      • Scrimm

        I can’t either man. we’re sitting here cramming work on it right now but it’s all in the editing/cleaning up noise the mics picked up. Vocals are next. I kinda wish I hadn’t said anything until we were a lot closer to being done but I never though it would take half this long. I’ll try to get a better sample for you guys soon.

        • Yay!! You should have JAG mix it.

          • Scrimm

            Keeping this one totally in house unless we hit something we just can’t do. But were keeping an unmixed version in case we wanted to mess with it down the road.

  • IT”S FUCKING SNOWING OUT AGAIN

  • Rho Stone

    I’ve spent all this week doing a visual arts project for a physician congress, even though they asked for it at the moment’s notice and didn’t have much time, I spent every night this week staying late making it as beautiful as can be. I chose a minimalist style of lines and dots that progressively formed in a white background, explaining their doctor stuff. It was great, and since I’m not employed and on my own I need these kind of things to look great so I can show them around. Then yesterday I get an email where they say: Pretty good and all, but we need you to add these, containing a folder of getty images of doctors and couples smiling wearing white pajamas and walking on the beach. The whole thing is now ruined. Mother. Fuck.

    At least I found out Torchlight 2 now has a Mac port, that’s pretty cool, I already created an Outlander and installed a bunch of mods.

    • tertius_decimus

      This is pretty much why I don’t wanna search for a job of designer. You make cool things and then client asks you to make “little” corrections…

      • Design by committee is the worst thing ever. I can’t tell you how many nice designs I’ve had to ruin because of corporate fuckwads that want a specific picture or some shit right in the most hideous goddamn place. FUCK.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        YES x 1000

    • tertius_decimus

      Designer’s hell looks like this: same coffee, same sleepless nights, same graphic tablets, same everything as in every day life. Just projects never get affirmed.

      • Rho Stone

        just got an email asking for new stuff, not big changes, but one of the things it says is “the video has a weird aura”. If they are referring to the vignette I’m killing myself

  • tertius_decimus

    Good: I found a job.
    Bad: my bike needs some spare parts. Current ones are quite worn off.
    Ugly: it’s the same job I had in November. Same company, same people, same everything.

    • Stanley

      It’s bad that your bike needs new parts but how awesome does it feel that YOU wore them out?

      • tertius_decimus

        Money is the biggest part of the problem. Replacing doesn’t cost much but I’m into deep moneyless hole. I don’t baby my stuff and here we have pretty much the worst tarmac surface quality EVER.

        • Stanley

          Yeah, that sucks. Bike parts are not cheap.

  • Good: Hot Dad is now my pen pal. Suck it.
    Bad: Some of you morons don’t get it.
    Ugly: Some of you morons don’t get it.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Whoa for real?? Tell him I say hi!

    • jelly

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      I loved his work.

  • Good: I don’t really know, music I guess

    Bad: 2015, fuck this year

    Ugly: I can’t seem to stop loving my ex for some stupid fucking reason

    • Imagine her pooping out your biggest fear.

    • Tyree
    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      My grandpa has non Hodgkins Lymphoma apparently. It was discovered quickly enough to be treated though.

    • Sorry to hear about your grandpa, duder. Hopefully he stays good for a long while.

    • Dagon

      I’m on the same boat as you on both grandparent and ex-GF lanes.

      I don’t know how bad is the dementia, but if not too bad you could try to spend time with him if you can, it could help both of you.

      Keep your head up, man.

      • I’m not sure how far along it is yet, but I will if I can

        • Dagon

          If you can make that happen, do it. From my experience with my own grandma and elderly patients, sometimes the thing they need the most is just a good conversation. For real.

        • LobsterAttack

          Dagon speaks truth. Just being there for them, listening, telling them stories if they want, in general just being present does more than I can describe. Some people in palliative care call it “holding space.”

    • you dating around any? finding someone else is a great solution to forgetting an ex. (not trying to sound cold here)

      • Yea I’m on a few of the online dating things. Fucking impossible to get responses though for some reason and it’s not like I’m not following rule 1 and 2. There’s this one girl who was perfect and we both liked each other so naturally she’s in fucking Australia….

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          What dating site were you using? Narrow your searches to a local area!

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          I don’t do online dating. I prefer to find someone the old fashioned way.

          • Stanley

            Best to take advantage of all the technological advances in all aspects of life. If you don’t, someone else will.

          • i’m with you d00d. tried and failed. there are secrets of which only @disqus_4E0xQtrX2p:disqus knows!

          • Lacertilian

            How old fashioned are we talking?
            I hope your methods don’t involve a rudimentary club and a secluded rock cave..

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            No, I mean actually going out and meeting people. Online dating just doesn’t work for me.

          • Lacertilian

            I was just taking this piss Ed.
            I met my wife the conventional Australian way..at the fucking pub.

        • tell her you know @Lacertilian:disqus

        • Lacertilian

          There’s still a fair bit of room down here..1/10th as many guns, bulk beaches & pubs…apart from that it won’t be much different.

      I would have said fuck 2014 but it wasn’t as bad as 2009 or the second half of 2013.

    • Scrimm

      Damn I know how that feels

  • Stanley

    Joe, those gifs are gruesome. Well, the top three anyway.

  • Good: May be getting out of my job sooner than expected making at least $15k more.
    Bad: Have to commute to NYC from NJ to do it
    Ugly: A meth addict beauty contest, I imagine that would be ugly.

    • fred flinstone

      EDIT: taking subway….acquire small handgun post-haste.

  • SxSW: Hipster Spring Break.

  • The Beargod

    BAD: I’m starting to think I’ll never recover, my days as a musician may be over.

    GOOD: Big G, Gambina, the nectar of god truly, the Junttijuice, Juntti being a Finnish “big city” equivalent of a hick, a hillbilly, a redneck, an Australian, a poserhack or some such. Cheaper than a six pack and will getcha drunk good. Fuck life.

    UGLY: I’m not sure whether this is the worst year ever, or the best in recent memory, therefore it’s mighty ugly. Also you.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Shit dude.

      >am going to try to find Big G in Canada

      • Tyree

        Where is the G spot in Canada>

        • Guacamole Jim

          Moose. But shhhhhh, it’s a secret.

    • Sir Tapir the Based

      Listening to Rytmihäiriö while drinking Gambina?

      • The Beargod

        You know it. I’m a fan.

    • Lacertilian

      What you recovering from BearGod, I think I missed this development.
      It wasn’t your decreasing fondness of metal you mentioned?

      • The Beargod

        Nah, my hands got infected unbelievably badly. That’s why I had to leave my job and all. They LOOK alright now and the skin has grown back but their still rather painful and it doesn’t lool like it’s going anywhere.

  • JWG

    The Good: Lee Adam Herold’s ‘Chopping Block’ [Attached: another highly relevant example]

    The fact that, thanks to the subject matter of the webcomic I keep nearly typing his name as Lee Harvey something also tickles me in a gallows-humour kind of way. Thanks to that Oswald fellow, persons named “Lee” who go by all three names enunciated will forever be almost as marked as persons whose middle name is “Wayne”.

    The Bad: It’s going to rain all weekend, so any plans I had of being outside have been flushed until next weekend.

    The Ugly: Over the last few years I’ve started developing random superficial subcutaneous lipomas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lipoma). Weirdly, each that had developed so far in a spot over a much older injury – one that caused at least a major bruise and at most a broken bone. Including the most recent one, which has developed in the last week inside my cheek, just above where I broke my jaw when I was 11 (PS: don’t run with a stapler, never mind scissors). It’s not physically ‘ugly’. But it’s messing with my self-image to think it might actually be noticeable, and I swear that when I touch it the sensation of my finger pressing on it remains there for several minutes after I stop.

    • Stanley

      Don’t let the rain keep you inside. Dress appropriately and head out. There is something extremely soothing about the rain.

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        I might see Cinderella because the remake is out. Yes, I know it’s not metal to do so but I don’t care.

        • Guacamole Jim

          ( ͡ಠ ʖ̯ ͡ಠ)

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I go see Disney movies, okay? It’s a #toiletconfession.

          • JWG

            I only ever go see Disney-Pixar movies. And I only ever would.

            Okay. Exceptions were made for Wreck-it Ralph. But that’s it.

        • JWG

          You might see Cinderella the band, right?

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            No, the movie. The remake came out last week.

  • The Beargod
  • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

    Good: I had two interviews this week and a third on Monday, I discovered a company that reissues long out of print albums called Culture Factory

    Bad: Lent, can’t see Drowning Pool because of the snow

    Ugly: The drummer for Twisted Sister and Adrenaline Mob died

    • good luck with the job hunt, JJD!

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        I’ve been searching sonce October. I have a feeling that my search is almost over though.

        • Stanley

          Yey! Fingers and toes crossed.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I have every finger and toe crossed. I hope that Old Navy hires me due to its location and because the people who run it are nice. I know one of the managers because of my mom.

          • Stanley

            And cheap clothes perk.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            Yeah.Thats good as well.

        • Good vibes, brooo!

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            It’s either going to be Old Navy or TJMAXX that hires me. I think it would be better than fast food work while I try to save money. I only have to pay student loans as I have no other bills and even those are only 5000 because I went to community college for a year. That means I’ll save up for my own car and hopefully a good car stereo and speakers with a good subwoofer.

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            That second video was funny. It’s also convenient I have some money saved for if I decide to buy a relatively nice used car.

  • Commander Shepard

    Good: I’m listening to the new Cattle Decapitation record because I’m from the future and I can. haha sux 2 b u

    Bad: Liara and Javik got into a fight and javik fell on Joker who is now in the infirmary because broken.

    Ugly: I saw Tali’s face and ITS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

    • Mother Shabubu III

      You can’t just say you’re listening to the new Cattle Decap without at least giving us a coupla hints about what it sounds like.

      • Commander Shepard

        It’s the aural equivalent of sex in a singularity wrapped in a stasis field in a zero gravity environment. Not…not that I have um…experienced that….

    • tertius_decimus

      I bet no Necrophagist album has released till the moment (what year are you from?).

      • Commander Shepard

        Necrophagist released a teaser of new material ten years ago, im in 2185

        • tertius_decimus

          Are you sure it’s not a teaser of a teaser of a teaser?

            It was a teaser of half of a pre production riff

          • tertius_decimus

            That makes perfect sense.

    • I heard the new Cattle Decap record has a breakdown that uses the ” Brown Note” Can you confirm this?

      • Commander Shepard

        I’m commenting from the bathroom, draw your own conclusions.

      • Max

        The “Brown Note” is 7 Hz, which is infrasonic to humans and below the frequency response of most audio reproduction systems. So even if they did put one on there, nobody’s gonna be Cattle Defecating anytime soon.

        @disqus_tQGvq7i64T:disqus has solved that for us, it’s inaudible..but the Red Chord on the other hand, completely audible.

    Austin Facial Hair Club. Ha. Seriously though, when will this beard thing run it’s course? Every single hipster in SF has a beard and that is NOT an exaggeration. Even when I went home to deepest, darkest Wales last month, every other person had a beard, including the women. It’s a world wide phenomenon. The world hasn’t seen so much facial hair since the Pleistocene. Enough, I say. I gonna buy some shares in Gillette cos this fad must surely be coming to an end.

    (Sorry if I offended any of the more hirsute flushers).

    • I have a beard. I look better with it but I’m not about to care enough about some hair growing on my face to make it a “lifestyle” thing. Ew.

      • Stanley

        Did you have one before the trend began?

        • Nah. I grew it out of extreme laziness in the middle of a depressive period. Then I looked in the mirror one morning like “Daaaaamn”.

          • Stanley

            Who’s that handsome dude?

            *coifs hair.

      • Guacamole Jim

        Seconded. I legitimately grow a beard because shaving the mop that sprouts from my face enough to keep myself looking good is a hell of a lot of work.

        • Stanley

          We can all agree that shaving sucks balls.

          • Guacamole Jim

            And stroking a beard deep in pensive thought is fucking awesome.

          • Lacertilian

            or even in a vacant haze..

          • tertius_decimus

            Hah, I guess I’m the only road biker who doesn’t shave his legs. It’s freaking hassle! How women do that on a regular basis?

          • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

            I dont know. I dont shave my legs either as its not manly.

          • Stanley

            I will confess that I’ve done it a few times. Mostly before races. Hairy legs and spandex is not my most favorite look.

          • Stanley

            *PG13

            I imagine that it’s annoying for them too. But there’s nothing quite like stroking a fresh shaved female leg.

          • tertius_decimus

            Love your adult warning, LOL! 😀

      • Tyree

        My mustache tastes and smells like beer all the time.

        • Stanley

          Yeah, I guess there are some perks. Except when it smells of last night Chinese.

          • Tyree

            I got a walrus mustache so it touches all the food I eat.

        • Scrimm

          Me too.

      • OldMetalHead
    • I shaved my beard last week. That’s the longest I ever kept one for – 6 weeks. It looked good I must say.

      • Stanley

        So you’re saying that I already missed the boat on my investment opportunity?

        • If you want to re-up, I’ll grow it back.

          • Stanley

            Alrighty, you have my approval to commence said growth. Anything to make a buck.

    • ^ This.

      This rant is only for the people that grow a beard just to be in modern fashion: I want to see those beardos hipzterz in 5 years when clean shaved fashion impose crying while cutting their facial hair.

      Beard because you like it>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Beard as chick magnet.

    • as somebody who is unable to grow respectable facial hair… I STAND WITH YOU!

      • Dagon

        They’re doing beard transplants now, HAHAHA

        • “i’ll take the Glock Jim plz”

          • Dagon

            If they had that option I’d look at transplants differently.

            So majestic.

      • Stanley

        I heard that if you can get a cow to lick your skin, hair will grow in that spot.

    • old_man_doom

      I have a beard, but it’s because I’ve wanted one ever since I saw Zakk Wylde as a kid. I guess the one benefit to the trendy-ness of beards is that more women like them now.

      • Stanley

        But now that everyone has one, the competition to snag a lady that likes them must be very stiff.

        • Multitudes are the worse!

          • Stanley

            Multitudes?

          • oh, my…

            #embarrass #onceagain

            ehem..

            it’s crowds u-u.

        • Yeah, but you’re still competing against mostly dipshits. The beard doesn’t change TOO much.

          • Dagon

            Hence beard transplants.

    • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love
  • EsusMoose

    Bad: Due to my class choices I’m squashed under a mountain of work and studying that I don’t have enough time for so everything I’ve turned in has been bad/unpolished. Quality of work is important to me so this has been mentally stressful, coupled with the poor grades I get due to not finishing things, I’m angered and annoyed with myself but mostly burnt out. Computer science can be a bitch
    Good: Throwing a party, I’ve made a small fortune of ice cubes, gotta go get more drinks/bottles because we do.
    Ugly: Seeing a large women reach down her yoga pants to adjust something

    • Stanley

      Are you sure it was a woman?

      • EsusMoose

        it was down the back not the front else I would have questioned

        • Stanley

          What on earth could she have been adjusting down the back? It boggles the mind.

          • EsusMoose

            I didn’t want to know but I don’t think she saw me sitting where I was when she scanned the room though it was easily within sight like 7 feet behind her. Just one of those moments where you wonder what they were thinking

          • Stanley

            Plug?

          • EsusMoose

            I don’t want to imagine that

  • Mother Shabubu III

    The good: new Seigmen album next month. What a perfect time to get into that band.

    The bad: I continue to be inept at handling real emotions. It’s like my emotions are a girl and I’m keeping her in a pit in my basement. Put the lotion in the basket.

    The ugly: I continue to procrastinate when I really want to write down my loose outline for a superhero show/book/thing.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    The good: Game of Thrones season 5 is less than a month away.

    The bad: The state of my NCAA bracket

    The ugly: I got talked into seeing Pig Destroyer this evening.

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      Don’t even bring up March Madness. My bracket is doomed.

    • Dagon

      Game. Of. Thrones.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        GAME. OF. THRONES.

        Can’t we all just love each other instead? Without destroying anyone?

      I’m only 51% through A Dance With Dragons. Looks like I better get cracking.

      • The Beargod

        #YoullBeDissapointed

        • Stanley

          I’m already disappointed. The plot lines are so drawn out and there’s nowhere near enough beheadings for my liking.

          • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

            I am so annoyed with all the characters after getting through book 5 that I hope the series ends with the white walkers making those dragons into zombie ice dragons and just killing off everyone

          • Stanley

            If only. Two more books to go to milk the franchise some more. It’s like a drug. Even though you know it’s bad for you, you keep turning the pages.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          That one got a little long because I read all five books back to back but I liked them all. I’m the odd man out because A Feast For Crows was probably my favorite. Fucking page turner.

          • The Beargod

            I don’t really recall individual books anymore, but the whole racket goes from Ok-to-shit.

          • Stanley

            A think a storm of swords was where the series reached its crescendo.

  • Dagon

    GOOD: I am a time traveler. I closed my eyes and it was shirt stains – when I opened them up we’re already deep in Flush It Friday.

    BAD: I jokingly took a depression screening questionnaire that’s made for elderly patients. If you score above 7 you are probably depressed. I got 9. I would have gotten 9 or more for the past 3 years.

  • Maik Beninton

    Bad: My classes have started, and I’m exhausted from going back and forth to fix my class schedule.
    Good: I managed to escape the worst professor I ever had.
    Ugly: My former professor, he’s not a jerk but he is terrible at being a professor.

  • Good: the weather here is warming up and I really want to take my dog out to some parks this weekend. My girlfriend and I are eating healthier and excercising more.
    Bad: The majority of the places my girlfriend could get a job in will be very far from my family, and I’ve never lived anywhere but here. It also took me about a year and a half after graduating to finally find this job in my field, and I’m afraid I won’t be able to compete in the areas we could be living and be doomed to work in retail or something (again).
    Ugly: My bass playing and drawing skills. I haven’t done either one of these in so long, I’m so shitty at them now and that really sucks. Makes me lose motivation the instant I try and start up again.

    • On the reals: as a young dude the best thing you can do for your future is ensure you’re on a solid career path.

      • I don’t mind my current job, it’s pretty easy going, but I feel like I’m starting to stagnate creatively. I’m not learning new stuff as quickly and as often as I like. Not having any sort of challenge makes things pretty boring.

      • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

        Especially in this economy. Even after we get out of this recession, it won’t be the last one we see in our lifetimes.

          Are we still in a recession? Things in Cali seem to be back to normal.

            Nationwide, yeah it’s still in recession, just not as bad as it was.

    • EsusMoose

      I understand the bass playing, I only have played by myself for a few years, every once in a while playing with a friend but fingers can’t do much and I lack the patience to get my strength back or timing do be anything but mediocre.

    • Maik Beninton

      It’s getting colder here, and thank god for that cause going to classes on 30ºC is terrible. When get there I’m swelling like crazy.

        Haha I live in at least 30 C every day, brah. It’s like someone’s constantly playing my mixtape wherever I go.

      • Lacertilian

        30ºC?
        That’s brisk.

        C’mon dude, don’t rub it in.

    • The Beargod

      If you’ve got a career building there I reckon she could find other job.

      • The main problem is that she’s wanting to do healthcare architecture (cancer centers, rehabilitation, etc.) and there aren’t many of those around here, but there are a lot of architecture firms that do other stuff here. She’s applying to a few here, but I think she has better chances in other cities and for jobs she would prefer. It’s a complicated thing.

        • The Beargod

          It always seems to get complicated. Which I understand, but situations like that have always made me want to
          #FuckIt

    • LobsterAttack

      Feel you on the bass playing. My Jazz is glaring at me from the corner as I type this.

      On the job/moving front: just my two cents, but if you’ve got a decent job where you are and can build it up a bit further, I’d hope that your girlfriend exhausts all her possibilities in the area before she sets her sights elsewhere. However it turns out, both of you will need to compromise on something, it just depends on who has to give up more.

  • Also, for those of you who know what League of Legends is, one of my college friends just got an Art Coordinator job at the company that makes the game. Pretty exciting shit.

    • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

      That’s awesome.

    • I love that kind of art! Share some pieces when it’s done, because I don’t play that.

  • nbm02ss

    There was a time when I wanted to move to Austin; after all, Dax Riggs lives there, so it must be pretty decent, right? Until I drove through there earlier this month helping my parents pick up a Jeep. N. O. P. E.

    • What set you off?

      • nbm02ss

        Traffic, specifically.

        • Oh yeah. It is just a tad enraging.

          • nbm02ss

            Granted, we were trying to get out of there ASAP, so maybe I didn’t give it a fair shake. Might be better if I’m in a situation where I’m not in a hurry.

  • nbm02ss

    Good: It’s Friday, and my cheat day, so tons of beer and fried goodness for me when I get off work.

    Bad: Looks like rain all weekend, so there goes grilling.

    Ugly: I need to have a sit down with the girlfriend and discuss a few things; namely choice of activities when we’re together, such as her wanting to get black out drunk every weekend; I’m trying to be healthier, and her current lifestyle choices aren’t really meshing with mine at the moment.

  • old_man_doom

    Good: Finals complete. I’m on day one of a four day mini-break with no class, work, or responsibilities. And all my roommates are gone for a week. So, I’m going to get up early, track guitars for my EP during the day (while naked), and party at night. Stoked.

    Bad: Beer money is cutting into my music funds. I have to balance that shit out.

    Ugly: Driving my friend (who happens to be wearing trailer pants) to the closest Chevron two minutes before it closes so he can get a 40. Needless to say, it’s party time.

    • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

      My one roomy finally got the boot. Still deciding whether that’s a good or bad thing, really. Kinda indifferent at this point.

      • old_man_doom

        It’s good because now you can walk around naked. Sorry, that’s kind of a big thing for me.

        • Lacertilian

          It should be a big thing for everyone

        • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

          Ummmmmmmmm, I still have other roommates and their 5 year old living here, so no go on that!

  • Bad: everything’s prices are up again. My students level, they don’t know what IQ means. #facepalm.

    Good: I finished my first Master semester. I have a permanent job time shift and now I can get out of my job at 5pm (in that way, I don’t have to walk at noon to my residence, which makes the trip a little bit more secure). Next week I will celebrate 5th anniversary with the lovely Mrs. Leonhart, I’m starting to make the plans for the big celebration.

    Ugly: My students level this semester. My laziness. Eating too much empanadas this week and ran out of money in my alimentation ticket.

    Weird: when I was passing this morning through the walk in the avenue to enter my work I encountered a guy walking like a crab. Some of his friends were recording it with a phone. It was hilarious seeing someone passing an avenue like a crab :P.

  • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

    Good: New Kendrick Lamar and Death Grips. So awesome
    Bad: Got out of one bit of overworking at college, straight into another. Ugh, my perennial shitty mood is getting even worse.
    Ugly: My hair today looked like a mini version of 2006 era Davey Havok from AFI, and we all know what that looked like.

        I know, I like AFI quite a bit (Punk or not punk), but that hairdo is fucking hilarious. Jade (Their guitarist, and a dude) also had scene hair, but that was your bog standard scene haircut, so not as hilariously awful.

  • LobsterAttack

    Bad: In a few months’ time, tops, I’ll need a new job, which will almost certainly require moving and all the ridiculousness that implies. Hopefully I end up in Boston, or any other place where people actually live.

    Good: In a relationship after a several-year dry spell and some nasty experiences. The lady in question is one I’ve been best friends with for a long time, and who likes metal. Victory! Also, the new Alkaloid album.

    Ugly: Maine and its citizenry in March. Soon the rednecks shall bust out their trucks to go mudding and to roll coal down the main drag of my town. Hence why I invested in pricey noise-canceling headphones.

    • Guacamole Jim

      Congrats on the lady! Also, noise cancelling headphones >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

      • LobsterAttack

        Yeah man, I put some of my tax return toward a nice pair of Sennheisers and … well, they’re good. Really fucking good.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      Jack Bauer keeps talking up that Alkaloid and I need to listen. Death Grips and Kendrick Lamar got in the way of a lot of metal this week, but I still listened to a lot of metal this week so whatevs.

      Like Glock Jim said, congrats on the relationship. It’s awesome when they are awesome.

      • LobsterAttack

        Yep, she’s getting into Cattle Decap at the moment after an Archspire binge.

        • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

          Make sure to keep her away from Jack as she might fall in love with him.

        So are there tracks like MAAD City on there or is it more or less like that ‘I’ single?

      Good to hear about you getting a relationship. Also with all the shitty Stephen King novel’s being set in Maine, I think Rednecks are the least of your problems.

          • Formerly Known As Oli Sykes

            Don’t bother. I usually do the same check I do with The Simpsons and Futurama to see whether or not it will be worth my time. If its in 4:3, its probably a good episode, if its in 16:9, its probably shit.

    • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

      Congrats! Hopefully everything goes well with the new gal.

    Do any of you have advice on who makes the best car audio stuff? I’m doing research and I would like opinions on what will work best. I know that I don’t want extreme high end equipment but I do want good equipment.

    • yeah man, first off do it all yourself; you can learn everything on the internet.
      and i say go with Pioneer brand (good quality vs. cost), get 4-ways of you can… if not, 3-ways. component speaker design is good, but costs more and is trickier!

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        What about Kicker? Are they good?

        • couldn’t tell ya, mang. i’ve only worked with a few different brands and was always partial to Pioneer. best advice: go to Crutchfield’s website and see how the customers rate them!

      • i was midway through season 3 and the HD’s came out (not yet legally, mind you). blew my mothafuckin’ mind

      • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

        I’m wanting to find it free online sometime and watch it sometime. I’m still bogged in a neverending queue of music, movies and TV.

        • Stanley

          Move all that other trash aside and place The Wire firmly at the top of your queue.

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Even past Game Of Thrones, which I’ve barely started on?

          • Lacertilian

            I would say yes.
            While I do enjoy GoT, I find some aspects extremely irritating, whether or not they are deliberate is irrelevant, they still agitate me in a furious stupor.

          • Stanley

            Which ones?

          • Lacertilian

            It’s been a while since I’ve watched it. The missus loves it and hated me criticizing it, I was close to writing a list out but then she began her usual rustling regime (Telling me to go sit out on the porch and shake my fist).

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            I’m liking it so far, but I’m only 3 episodes in.

          • Lacertilian

            Don’t get me wrong, it is enjoyable.
            Some scenes you cannot look away from.

          • Stanley

            Even.

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Toss me a link where I can watch it for free and I’ll get on it.

          • Stanley

            Uhh…calling all McNultys. McNulty, do you read?

          • Stanley

            Uhh…McNulty. McNulty, do you read? Over.

        • d00d I can assist you with this task if you’d like…

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Yep!

      • DARKBEARD

        Apparently, they’ve redesigned a handful of areas from vanilla. Looking forward to rebuilding my Zealot char and wrecking all the new scrugs
        .

        • Scrimm

          Yeah and I think enemy and bonfire placement has been reworked as well. I actually didn’t play 2 very much at all so it will pretty much all be new to me.

          • DARKBEARD

            Then get in line for the wreckoning.

    • Stanley

      Yo Jimmy. How many versions of the Wire do you have? Do you have it on VHS?

      • There’s vhs, laserdisc, DVD. Bluray is coming later this year, got my preorder. Oh yeah, and the promotional copies they gave all the actors after wrap…

        • Stanley

          Living the dream, Jimmy, living the dream.

  • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

    The good: Had a nice, chill birthday and lots of ‘happy birthdays’ (thanks, everyone!). Rest of the week has been pretty chill. Got my paperwork with the local labor office done, so fingers crossed on that one.
    The bad: Fucking acid reflux!!! 2 1/2 days of the shit so far. I just have to let it pass, since Tums and Rolaids make me gag up foam, and Pepto fucks my stomach up and only succeeds in giving me pink shits.
    The ugly: The lining of my esophagus right about now.

    • Stanley

      I must have missed your BD, so may I wish you a belated happy birthday.

      • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

        De nada, and thanks! It was on St. Patrick’s Day (Tuesday).

        • Stanley

          Ouch, was it a sore one?

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Nah, pretty chill.

          • Stanley

            What about last year? Or the year before?

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Same, pretty much.

    • Lacertilian

      Tried the old school milk with some bicarb soda?

      • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

        EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

        • Lacertilian

          EEWWWWW is the taste of bile.

            OMFG, I haven’t laughed this hard in ages! Showing this one to dad, btw.

          • Lacertilian

            Have you seen the movie Chopper?
            This character Heath Franklin (Ronnie John’s) was playing was interpreted from Eric Bana’s portrayal of the real Chopper (Mark Reid – notorious Australian murderer/criminal, got someone to cut his own ears off etc.).
            Kinda convoluted, Chopper himself got pretty cranky saying he doesn’t act like that but this is way is much funnier.

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Nope, but I want to now!

          • Lacertilian

            The hilarity will increase dramatically.
            Kit on the FB group mentioned he watched it for the first time the other day and loved it. So I guess there is appeal for the US market, it just wasn’t promoted there.
            Fucking classic Aussie movie, based on actual events.

            Got the final interview with the guy saved for my ‘watch later’ list. Sounds like a fun guy!

    • I used to have acid reflux…Back when I topped every meal with hot sauce. Yes, three meals a day every day. So dont do that.

  • Lacertilian

    The Good: Had a good mini-holiday in Tasmania (4days)
    The Bad: Being back in Sydney & at work in a shitty job.
    The Ugly: The hangover I’ve got from drinking away the memory of The Bad

    • Stanley

      Not the hangover you got from watching the cricket?

      • Lacertilian

        We had cricket training (in an indoor center) yesterday, whilst watching the quarter-final on the big screen. I must have bowled at least 25 overs. Then I took a shitload of 500mL beers and a 10yr bottle of Laphroaig to a mates and drank like an idiot.

        • Stanley

          For some reason, I thought you were going to Tassy to watch cricket (euphemism for drinking heavily sitting at the side of an oval). 25 overs. Jesus H. The most I ever bowled was 11. You earned that beer/whiskey combo.

          • Lacertilian

            Correct, the missus booked us (read: me) tickets to see Aus VS Scotland in the World Cup. We had great seats and I think she enjoyed it more than I.
            I have successfully achieved the near-impossible of turning a woman over the age of 21 from a non-sport lover into a cricket fan.
            *opens morning beer in celebration of achievement*
            Where abouts did you play? Is there an SF comp?

          • Stanley

            Good job, mate. Cricket is such a social occasion that it’s hard not to enjoy it. Let me know if she ever gets to the stage of wanting to spend the weekend watching a test match. 🙂

            God, I love cricket but… time.

          • Lacertilian

            She does. I’ll even go out with friends and come home to find her with one eye on the test & one eye on her laptop.
            She’ll give me the run-down of what I’ve missed etc.
            Full convert I tells ya

          • Stanley

            Now that, my friend, is a top bird. Go tell her that Stanley says so.

          • Lacertilian

            She’s still in bed, I’m allowing her a solid sleep in by not waking her up ‘accidentally’, so I can talk shop with fine flvshers such as youself

          • Stanley

            No, go and wake her up. It’s important that she knows.

          • Lacertilian

            It is 11am…but…she doesn’t drink or smoke so her sense of smell remains unhindered and reminds me of the fact that I stink like beer/smoke/scotch/rum/weed almost immediately upon contact. This will only worsen the situation

          • Stanley

            Start cooking bacon and put the coffee pot on. She will arise, goddammit.

          • Lacertilian

            She is stirring naturally by the sounds of it.
            It’s now 11:15am, so if I don’t do something soon she’ll complain that I let her sleep in too long and ask why I didn’t wake her up.
            The paradox of time itself.

            I played all through school. Only played Rugby in Uni and then took cricket up again when I moved to England. I played club cricket for a team in Welwyn Garden City (about 25 miles north of London).

          • Lacertilian

            Nice, why did I think you lived in SF? I’m in a bit of a haze.
            Bat/bowl or both?

          • Stanley

            I do now. (I updated my post above). Bowler. But was also half useful with the bat.

          • Lacertilian

            Good. This is the one time where I have been correct.
            Bowling all-rounder eh. Good stuff.
            I just bought a new bat for this comp I’m playing in. First time I’ve played properly for 15 years. The bats have changed so much, it’s ridiculous.
            Check out the difference in the edge thickness alone.

          • Stanley

            How so? Dennis Lilly aluminium?

          • Lacertilian

            Refresh for image?

          • Stanley

            Do you even need slips anymore?

          • Lacertilian

            haha, just a row of them at third man.

          • I tried to understand cricket via this conversation. I failed.

          • Lacertilian

            Silly Joe.
            That’s akin to jumping into a biochem lecture when you study business management.

          • Cricket just doesn’t have a presence here so it’s pretty confusing to me. The forbidden sport.

          • Lacertilian

            Why forbidden?
            Is there something in particular that confuses you or just the whole lot?
            The World Cup is on at the moment and it’s in Australia/NZ for the first time since 1992 so it’s pretty high-up on the agenda for once.

          • I know that it exists and that large parts of the world dig it. That’s about it. Every other sport gets way more attention (rugby games even play during half time at Arena Football games).

          • Lacertilian

            Rugby League or Union?
            I know Charles Barkley came out and made some fucked up remarks about Rugby saying the players are basically stupid for playing such a rough sport with no padding for (relatively) little money.
            I guess money sucks the last remaining love/enjoyment for the sport out of you when you earn a developing nation’s GDP in one month.

          • Club level stuff. Barkley is kinda awesome in that he’s payed huge sums to say whatever half assed thing crosses his mind. He has a way with words…

          • Lacertilian

            I used to respect him when he was playing for the Suns (although I was one of those Charlotte Hornets fans, Alonzo Mourning & Mugsy Bogues man!…nowhere near as prevalent here in the 90’s as Orlando bandwagon jumpers fans).
            Heard he does shit like that all the time now, he’s a commentator too right?

          • Yep. Full time broadcaster/weight watchers spokesperson. The 90s Hornets had the BEST gear. So fly. http://s3.amazonaws.com/thmb.inkfrog.com/pix/Zolli8/JKT0541.jpg/800/0

          • Lacertilian

            Yup, as an 11 year old I can proudly/sadly say I wore a Starter flexifit cap but not that purple one, mine was black.
            The Hornets don’t play in Charlotte any more right?
            I haven’t followed for a decade or more now.

          • They became the Bobcats for about ten years before going back to Hornets this season. Thankfully those fly colors are back! http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2014/0619/nba_hornets_uni_d1_600x400.jpg

            Wow, those models look like they were created from T-1000 juice.

          Cricket story: I was just home in Wales visiting the folks and my old man said that he had been clearing out the attic and that he had found some of my stuff. He wanted to know what he should do with it. I took a look and I found this huge sports bag fully of cricket stuff. Slazenger pads, Gray Nichols gloves and shoes and even a box and jock strap. No bat though. ??? Anyway, I told him that he could take it all to the charity shop. I laughed when I though of him dropping the bag off and the person behind the counter holding my box up for examination.

        • The Beargod

          My pa always told me cricket was the greatest of sports. “First you go in and check the players, then go to the beer tent. A couple of hours later you check on the game and notice nothing has happened so you head back to the beer tent. At 16.00 you check the game again and again nothing has happened so you wander back to the beer tent. When you’dre next supposed to check the game you’ve already stopped caring. A wonderful game my boy”

    I’d like to flush people who think vinyl needs to sound perfect if it’s used. I buy used vinyl and it shouldn’t matter how it sounds. If it works you keep it. If it’s warped or cracked throw it out. The whole expectation of an album from the 60’s or 70’s to sound like it did when it was first bought in those decades is ludicrous.

    • Rho Stone

      to say the truth I only buy them because they look nice on my shelf…

      • Eddie Trunk Jr., Floor Tech

        I buy used vinyl exclusively as most artists I like have cheap used vinyl. New vinyl costs too much.

          Ennio is brilliant.
          I love the Ecstasy of Gold too, the thing that Metallica use for their intro. It’s on a fucking car ad here at the moment but re-recorded by schmucks. It’s displeasing at best.
          Also, recently his parts of the score for Django Unchained were cool.

          • Scrimm

            Like the stuff he did for The Thing too.

    Good: SPRING BREAK WOOO!! Toured some NASA / Marshall Space Flight stuff earlier today, and have spent a large portion of the evening watching Fighter Jet stuff on Youtube. F-15s are so handsome. F-22s look all futurey and cool, f-16/18s look very “strike fighter”, but something about just how wide F-15s look…that large wing…those vertical stabilizers…so damn handsome!
    Bad: Had to wake up pretty early to tour the Base’s NASA/ Marshall Space Flight stuff.
    Ugly: My sister woke me up from my nap because some boy from her math class showed up on our porch to give her chocolate. So I got to be “big scary BLXCK MXTXL Brother” and chaperone on her request. So…it was ugly for him. Lol.

    I hope you all have fun Flush Friday posts I am excited to read about what is new in the community!

    good–bad—and the ugly

    There are still many unanswered questions concerning the massacre of the Branch Davidians, including who fired first and who gave the order to set the fire. Allegedly, Hillary, not Bill, gave the order, as the stand-off was embarassing the fledgling administration. According to the leaked source, the chain of command for the attack was Hillary Clinton-Vince Foster-Janet Reno-BATF on the ground.
    Quite conveniently, Foster wound up dead, from what was claimed to be a suicide. Many facts cast doubt on this finding.
    Also, conveniently enough, Bill Clinton has now sequestered all the files of his wife’s involvement in his administration…the cover-up continues. See link below for the entire story.
