The joys of apartment life.

Apartment living: It’s pretty much a fact of life. Most of you reading this either currently live in an apartment or have lived in an apartment at some point. Yay weak economies and stagnating wages! It has its pros, like not needing to take care of the lawn or paying for repairs, and its cons, like noisy neighbors living below people who apparently feel the need to jump as much as possible and waiting for repairs to be done.

I had been living in the same apartment with my girlfriend for over four years. It was a pretty small floor/basement level apartment that was right next to the laundry room. It wasn’t great, but it was affordable and close to where we worked. There had been some minor issues with the place, but nothing that wasn’t eventually fixed or replaced. At the same time, both of us got better paying jobs and were casually looking to move to a better apartment. That casual attitude changed to “oh my god we have to get out of here” just a few days before both of our birthdays.

The Bad: Early this past June, I came home from work to find my apartment door open. My girlfriend was still at work, so I went into my apartment ready to punch any and all things. Thankfully, there was no one in the apartment and nothing was missing, but I saw that some furniture had been moved. I also noticed that the carpet throughout the entire apartment was wet. Living room, bed room, hallway, closet floors all wet. Many parts of the ceiling had water stains and even some of the walls had the tell-tale marks of water dripping down. What the fuck?

The carpet shouldn’t be that dark.

It turns out that the apartment above mine had a pipe burst and all the water that came pouring out soaked through their floor and down into my apartment. The company that owns the apartment had called someone to soak up the water in their apartment and he had come into our apartment to see the damage. The company did not inform us that this had happened or that someone had been allowed into our apartment. Fucked up, right?

I tried frantically to get stuff off the floor and move things to the few dry spots left in the apartment. That’s when I noticed a slight drip coming from the ceiling. A drip that started to get faster and faster.

flushitfridaybulgingceiling

Yeah, the ceiling isn’t supposed to bulge like that.

The Ugly: My girlfriend, who had left work early to help me deal with the clusterfuck, was on the phone with the insurance company when it happened. A section of the living room ceiling, weakened by all the water, collapsed. Boom! Down goes the ceiling.

flushitdebris

Exhausted and terrified that more of the ceiling would collapse, we spent the night in a hotel (which the landlord company would not pay for) and spent both of our birthdays at my girlfriend’s mother’s house.

The company was unresponsive and unsympathetic. Despite the fact that there was now a giant gaping hole in our ceiling, the landlord took over a week to clean up the mess and fix the hole. Of course, that didn’t fix the problem of the carpet retaining all the water and the wonderful smell of mold soon encompassed everything in the apartment. How would the landlord fix this? Replace all of it? Oh, no, they’ll just have the guy clean the carpet again, but in order for him to clean it, we would have to get everything off of the carpet. Everything. In one day, I managed to get all of the furniture, including dressers full of clothes and our bed, off the carpet and out of the apartment.

The results of the carpet cleaning were negligible. The place still stunk of mold, the doors in the apartment wouldn’t close properly because they had expanded from the water, the wet insulation in the ceiling was not replaced, and the rest of the ceilings in the apartment were badly water-stained. We had to throw out some clothes and some furniture. To top it all off, we had apartment insurance, but they wouldn’t pay out because the damage didn’t meet their minimum monetary requirements. Happy fucking birthday to us.

The Good: It took about three long months, but we managed to find an apartment that is better in every possible way. We now have a lot more room, we’re on the top floor, and this new company is responsive and quick on repairs. Though it was an incredibly frustrating few months, we are now free from the basement and the shitastic company that gave minimal fucks. For those of you living in an apartment, I hope you don’t have to go through this and that all your problems are taken care of quickly. Sound off in the comments below about your apartment horror stories. Let’s commiserate together and hope for a day when we all live in nice houses with white picket fences.

    BAD: I need to file my income taxes from last year and apply for FAFSA for graduate school.

    GOOD: I’m gonna jam a few non-distracting Crowhurst noise albums whilst I do so.

        Man, I know. Like I want to spend two hours doing all this crap. Lol

        • I still have to do mine as well. Just annoying is all.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        That’s my schedule now Detective McNulty!

        I also picked up a shift next Tuesday, a paltry eight hours lol

        My goal is to pick up one shift or more preferred a training during my five days off. I have Cognitive Behavioral Therapy training on March 4th!

        • weekends only edward? dang. more toilet time i suppose!

          • Dubs

            You’d think that

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            There’s been a steady uptick!

    • Can’t wait to get my taxes done, gonna be gettin’ some paper this year!

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        I hope I get some cash back, that would be nice.

  • Dubs

    My apartment managers are dope. Stuff always gets fixed quickly.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      That’s awesome.

      I own a condo, and have had a few plumbing related fiascos and fights with property managers and the association because of them.

      • Dubs

        We’re pretty fortunate. A lot of the landlords and property managers in town are not as awesome as ours. I called her over break and asked if she could check to see if we had any packages delivered. She actually put them in our apartment for us.

  • Never lived in an apartment, but house issues can be just as frustrating since home owners have to pay and fix for everything. Had to deal with frozen water lines that busted one year. What a fucking nightmare that was. Horrid.

    GOOD: It’s Friday and I have the whole weekend to myself to listen to records and binge watch Bob’s Burgers. Maybe I’ll grab a bottle of some good imperial stout for tomorrow night as well. Hopefully it’s warm enough this weekend to take the steel beast again. Here she is…

    BAD: The inescapable politics on TV and online. Shit is tormenting.

    UGLY: Me. I stepped on the scale this morning and saw that I’m down to 147 pounds. I’m starting to look like a holocaust victim, plus I’m 6 foot 2” tall. Guess I need to drink some beer like Stanley recommended last Friday.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Holy crap, that’s thin.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I don’t know if that’s healthy to be that skinny.

      • Well, I’d rather be too skinny than too fat I guess.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          That is true. I have to lose weight due to being over 300 pounds.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            How tall are you, JJD?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            6 foot 2.

          • Exercise and laying off the ranch will help.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m going to miss the ranch so much.

          • Waynecro

            You can do it, man. Just start making minor changes. Things get easier once you replace bad habits with good habits.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            And take steroids!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            What am I, Scott Stener?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Steiner’s aesthetics are fucked. Kevin Levrone looked like a boss.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I have no clue how he is still alive. I mean he looks cartoonish and I’ve heard that he can barely walk due to how much mass hes carrying around.

          • Waynecro

            If only they didn’t have such awful side effects.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Look at all the wrestlers that die due to steroids and other drugs.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            True. Some guy I used to go to the gym with became a heavy steroid user. He turned from a reasonably calm dude into a human tank assaulting everyone who looked at him wrong. He trashed people’s cars, threatened a few people, got thrown out of the gym… On the other hand, I’ve known a few guys who took steroids and they didn’t have that extreme mental change that guy had. Nevertheless, it’s scary what it can do to one’s brain. Let alone someone’s body.

          • Waynecro

            The physical side effects are really bad.

          • Stanley

            Was his name Tim Lambesis?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It ain’t easy being Tim Lambeezy.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Hahaha! No but I think he was close to pulling a hit on someone as well.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’ve eaten less the past few days.

          • Stanley

            Less is more.

          • was about to comment “Way Necro’s having a heart attack listening to all this”

          • Waynecro

            I used to be 300+ pounds of alcoholic shit. Then I dropped to 150 pounds, but I looked sickly and frail. My weight has fluctuated constantly since then, but I think I’ve finally got my system nailed down, despite the complications that taking insulin creates. I’m finally putting on lean mass without puffing up.

          • seems like your body really likes trolling you :/

          • Waynecro

            Seriously. That’s why I torture it with frequent workouts.

          • more beer

            Here is the other side of that. Or you quit all of your bad habits and drop dead. I have seen this happen a bunch of times.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, but I don’t think cutting, say, 500 calories per day, walking, and choosing real foods instead of processed foods is going to kill anyone. Of course, it’s always a good idea to see your doctor before beginning a new diet/exercise regimen.

          • more beer

            Those aren’t even on my radar of bad habits.

          • Waynecro

            I figured, haha. I was just trying to encourage JJD, who expressed an interest in dropping a few pounds.

          • Do a green juice fast, you’ll lose a pound a day and clean a ton of crap out of your body. I did it and I’m lazy.

          • Dubs

            I’m honestly an advocate of exercise as a weight-cutter over diet. Most people don’t have the will to maintain a diet, so they gain the weight right back. If you’re exercising, it helps you readjust your metabolism, and you can still eat a few junk items as long as you’re generally eating cleaner.

          • Waynecro

            I agree. Crazy diets tend to work at first, but the pounds often come back with reinforcements within a year. It’s amazing how much of a difference cutting a few calories, eating less junk, and walking every day can make.

          • I don’t get much time to exercise and wish I could so this is the viable alternative for me.

          • Dubs

            That makes sense. We’ve talked about your diet before, and I think you have a stronger will than most.

          • Yes, I remain dedicated to it.

          • Stanley

            80% diet. 20% exercise.

            Best ratio for healthy weight loss and the chances of it lasting.

          • Stanley

            And when I say diet, I don’t mean going on a crazy diet. I mean eating a healthy balanced diet.

          • Waynecro

            Just switching from processed foods to real foods can have a huge positive impact.

          • Stanley

            Yep. Hardly any processed food in our house. Canned baked beans and the odd bag of chips is it. If there’s more than 2 things on the ingredients list, stay away.

          • Dubs

            Stanley, do you cook? I know there are a few of us around here who enjoy it.

          • Stanley

            All the time. Except my weekly burrito and one time when I go out.

          • Dubs

            Weekly burrito? Do you have a special place you like to go to in town?

          • Stanley

            Yep. As you can imagine there are a zillion burrito shops in SF, but there is one that I always go to.

          • Dubs

            Most excellent. Can’t beat a good burrito.

          • what are your thoughts on the California Burrito (with the fries and cheddar cheese i think?)

          • Stanley

            I’ve never had one. Sounds good it you want to clock in at 300.

          • Óðinn

            Now we are talking.

          • Waynecro

            Other than my protein powders and weekend calorie-free soda, pretty much everything I consume is “one ingredient.” Processed food is delicious, but it’s more chemistry experiment than food.

          • Óðinn

            I like sometimes enjoy baked beans with breakfast.

          • Stanley

            Fuck yesssss. Fried eggs, toast, bacon and baked beans! Breakfast of champions.

          • Óðinn

            Love it.

          • Detective Fish

            The breakfast of truckers.

            FTFY

          • Stanley

            You’re right. Needs more black pudding and fried bread though.

          • Dubs

            Aye, I’m with you there. Diet fads aren’t the answer, but you’ve gotta eat your fruits and veggies.

          • Detective Fish

            Thankfully I don’t have to do either since my weight can’t seem to get past 150. I think my hypoglycemia has something to do with that, since I noticed my metabolism skyrocketed after my seizure in 2001.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            What is that? I might do that.

          • You need to get a juicer first, you might want to ease your way into it by trying smoothies first.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            My dad has a juicer.

          • Óðinn
          • Stanley

            For most people, these diets are futile. People lose calorie burning muscle mass as well as fat and as soon as they stop the diet the weight comes piling back on.

          • It was lifestyle change for me, diets are pointless. Why change your lifestyle temporarily so you can back to being a slob again?

          • Stanley

            Why indeed?

          • Stanley

            Wow, you are two Tyrees. What does your doc say?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I haven’t seen him for my yearly checkup yet.

          • Stanley

            Go see him/her.

          • STAY GRIND

        • Dubs

          I weigh around the same amount, maybe a little less, and I’m 6′.

    • CyberneticOrganism
      • I want that.

        • more beer

          You have to go to Belgium for that. I already looked into finding that in the USA.

          • Stanley

            Belgium >>>

          • Lacertilian

            Beer, chocolate, proximity to Germany & the Netherlands, euthanasia… what more could you want?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I happen to be from Belgium. We could use some more hot chicks over here. But then again, the Netherlands is just as stone’s throw away if you want to see some damn fine looking women.

          • Stanley

            Where do you live?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Limburg. Extremely close to the Dutch border. So close in fact that the rest of Belgium doesn’t even regard us as ‘Belgian’.

          • Stanley

            For a small country, it has more than its fair share of divisiveness. Love Belgium though. I’ve been 4 or 5 times.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah every province in Flanders has its own accent, and they all way differ from one another. Which places have you visited in Belgium?

          • Stanley

            Brussels and Antwerp, obviously but mostly the Flemish region. I’ve cycled all over the place. Mostly we stay in Brugge, Ghent and Kortrijk. Ypres, Oudenaard, Geraardsbergen, West Vleteren. Either cycling or beer Meccas. My favorite beer is Bos Keun by de Dolle. West Vleteren 12 is second.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Cool. West Flanders is a known paradise for beer and cycling enthusiasts!

          • Stanley

            Yep. The cobbled hills are epic. We also cycled around Antwerp following the E3 schelderpris. I think it’s changed name now. Very nice too, but no hills.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            The more you get to the Walloon side of the country, the more hills you’ll find. The Ardennes are very nice as well. Less for cycling though, more if you’re into hiking.

          • Óðinn
          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            You’ve been in Belgium as well?

          • Óðinn

            No. I wish. I found that photo on a website for a company that offers beer/cycling tours in West Flanders. I wouldn’t mind touring that area by bicycle. I’m a cyclist and fan of the TDF. Maybe I’ll make it to Belgium someday. Looks great.

          • Óðinn

            Pro Tip: Hot Dutch women hate it when you throw stones at them. 😉

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Haha!
            I guess I can’t complain after all. Where I live there’s a very large Italian and Turkish community. You’ll find some real lookers there as well!

          • more beer

            There is a simple solution to that. Don’t throw rocks at hot chicks. I think they frown on that everywhere.

          • Óðinn

            That sounds like some solid advice, more beer. I was speaking specifically about hot Dutch women, but I can see how that feeling could translate.

          • more beer

            It doesn’t matter what language they speak or where they are from. Women are pretty much the same everywhere. I don’t like rocks being thrown at me, so I can’t see any women enjoy it. I mean rocks can really hurt. Plus I didn’t know there was a huge problem of people throwing rocks at dutch women.

          • Detective Fish

            Isn’t that the hot chick who played Eva in Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo?

            Especially euthanasia! I think Holland has it too. My wife and I were discussing this recently and when the time comes, we’re moving to Oregon. Apparently, you have to be a resident for 6 months and so it will take some foresight.

          • Lacertilian

            I’d love to live in Oregon.
            Forests, mushrooms, legal weed, snow, ocean, mountains, ticks all the boxes, heard they have the most micro-breweries per capita too?

          • Stanley

            You forgot to mention RAIN. They do have a lot of beer too, but I prefer the stuff from San Diego county.

          • Lacertilian

            I’d imagine Oregon being a more suitable climate for hop cultivation than the more southerly states?

          • Stanley

            Oh, I’m sure it is but they have things called trucks.

          • Lacertilian

            So I should visit a truck instead of a hop farm?

          • Stanley

            Not just any truck.

          • more beer

            I have all of those things in Colorado except the beach. Plus I think our bud is better.

          • more beer

            I had hurt myself at work. So I was laid up for a couple of years waiting on workmans comp.Well I finally settled everything in late August 2001. 2 weeks later 9/11 I couldn’t find a job now that I was able to work. So I had a buddy in New Mexico so I went there and was blown away by the wide open spaces and the landscape. So I stayed, for 10 years. One of my punk friends from there moved to Denver. His old lady was the chief financial office of a dispensary. So I came up and visited for a week. She kept offering me a job. But I had a job that I hated. So I went home worked a couple of days and said fuck this. I called my friends old lady asked her for a job and quit my other job. The job was growing and trimming in a 6000 plant warehouse. Back then everyone in the pot industry was playing fast and loose with the rules. No one who was working there was even allowed to be there by the state. So after a while I thought I need to find something else to do. So I no longer work with pot. So kind of yes and no for coming for the weed. I came to work in the weed business I didn’t just come to smoke. Even though that’s a great fringe benefit.

          • Óðinn

            Thanks. Just curious. I know you love your weed and micro-brews, so I thought maybe that was part of the reason.

          • more beer

            I love living here. But a lot of people moved here when weed was legalized with no plan. I had a job and a place to live before I made the move. It makes a big difference. There are micro brews and weed in abundance here. Plus there is a good scene here.

          • Lacertilian

            While Colorado is high (yes, I said it) on my list, It’s the type of forests in Oregon that draw me in, Sequoia spp. have always interested me. What are the predominant forest trees in CO? I’ve chatted with Dubs about CO quite a bit but don’t know if we talked plants much.

          • more beer

            A lot of pines and aspens. But also keep in mind I am a city boy through and through.

          • Óðinn

            Oregon is great.

          • Detective Fish

            Nope! I was there for a few weeks in ’96 and fucking hated Portland outside of the seafood. And definitely the most junkies I’ve ever seen crammed into one place.

          • Óðinn

            Didn’t you live in Chicago? Surely they have junkies there.

          • Detective Fish

            Yup, but still nowhere near to Portland levels. Chicago has more than it’s share of junkies (Blake Judd, anyone?), though, and it’s gotten much much worse over the years. I was living in Obama’s neighborhood and knew of at least 3 crack and heroin houses around there, so it’s everywhere over there.

          • Fun fact: Browning Firearms used to make there shotguns in Belgium. Top notch quality! I have my Grandfathers A5 – Belgium made. Pretty looking, huh?

            I don’t drink.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Oh, right on man.

          • Stanley

            Good. There’ll be less people when I go.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Now I’m mot entirely sure about what these measurements mean, but that sounds pretty thin to me man. Pretty damn thin.

    • You’re probably underweight for your height. I’m 5′ 11″ and should weigh around 175lb.

      • Stanley

        The ranges on the BMI charts are quite broad. For someone that’s 6’2″ the “normal” range is 145 to 190. If I was 190, I would be fat as fuck and super slow. The lighter the better as long as you’re healthy and don’t lose any power. I speak from the perspective of someone that enjoys endurance sports. Obviously, my biceps aren’t going to win any awards.

        • My arms are twigs.

          • Stanley

            Mine are blades of grass.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Mine are as non existent as a Ramones reunion.

          • Stanley

            You probably have them, they are just hidden for now.

        • I would definitely do running and cardio type stuff with light weights if were able to do it.

          • Stanley

            Finding time can be tricky. It’s all about prioritizing what time you do have.

    • sweetooth0

      shit homes, that’s skeletal! I’m 6’3″ and if I get down to like 180 I’m pretty damn skinny.

      Me at around 180lbs vs me somewhere between 220-230lbs

      • sweetooth0

        same red leather jacket

      • your horror collection is impressive to say the least

        • sweetooth0

          It’s a 4X8 collage I made. Unfortunately the wrinkles you see is when I tried some acrylic clear coat they sold me at the art store. totally fucked it up. Luckily only covered half of the image. I had to rip a bunch off and re-do it, then I just used good old mod podge.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            mod podge is the best.

      • RJA

        dude, you look better at 220. of course, maybe I’m just biased because I’m about 220.

    • so have you never tried Hot Pockets or……..

    • Stanley

      I’m 6’2″ and fighting weight is 155. I’ve put on 5 lbs since the new year with no running. I still bike, but nothing burns calories like running.

      • Dubs

        I gained a little weight over break from eating out with family a lot, but the running brought my body back in line.

        • Stanley

          It’ll do that.

      • Yeah running really is a burner for sure. I find a good medium between the two though. I like to bike more, but the running is easier to do in the winter coldness.

    • Óðinn

      Enjoy the ride. Salsa makes great steel frames. I have a Salsa myself.

    • tigeraid

      Bob’s Burgers is quality.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: the amount of stuff coming to my area, had an interview with Hardees and I have an interview with Wendy’s on Tuesday, seeing Bruce Springsteen on Monday

    Bad: my job gave me hours from 2 to 6 on Sunday, my job in general

    Ugly: Motograter is touring but not coming to Poughkeepsie. At least Ace Frehley is.

  • Mayk Benynton
  • Boss the Turbid Ross

    Holy shit 365! I have a little problem in my apartment, but we’re moving soon to a bigger place. Glad you got into a better place!

  • Waynecro

    Congrats on surviving those ordeals with your sanity intact and getting into a better apartment!

  • Salvador Dalí Lama

    GOOD: A very productive week for me for once. I stopped procrastinating, and starting writing the rough, loosely detail outline/summary of the story I’ve been redoing over and over for a few years. I am now about halfway through.

    Also; doubled the productivity and recorded vocals for two songs for me and a bud’s project called Honeydripper.

    BAD: Even though my job could be way worse, I feel frustrated with it right now. Tired of working afternoon to nights in a little shop. Don’t know how to find a better job that will accommodate my lack of vehicle-having.

    UGLY: Found I can’t record my lyrics unless I “get into character”. I feel incredibly self-conscious thinking about what I’m yelling, but when I wear a mask or costume, I have no issues. There goes any hopes of me playing in a live band someday.

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Just wear the costume during your live performance.

      • Salvador Dalí Lama

        I’d have to make a stage name too. I wouldn’t want people knowing it’s me for some reason. Feels too nu metally to do that though lol.

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          Does this look numetal to you?

          • Salvador Dalí Lama

            Nah. But people still know his real name/background. I’d feel more comfortable doing like The Cuckoo from Terra Tenebrosa does. No one knows who he is or anything about his real identity. I think it adds to the music too.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Hmm… just do a bunch of music videos and “live performance” recordings of yourself/band but keep it as anonymous as possible, pretending like the band actually gets out and does stuff but not actually playing live.

          • Salvador Dalí Lama

            That would be tricky. I wouldn’t mind doing performance videos or like weird Death Grippian style videos. My only problem is that my old band mate now lives in New York, and the one I’m making stuff with now is from Texas. Might have to do the Death Grips route. That and find someone who is willing to produce for two people with no funds, haha.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Hahaha, just trying to figure something out. There has to be a way to get yourself out there, without actually getting out there. Look at ghostbath, those guys convinced the world they were from China.

          • Salvador Dalí Lama

            I’m sure we could with Bandcamp and social media. Never knew about Self Defense Family until I found their Tumblr page. I just hope we can get our mixing quality a little better in the future to make it a smidgen more legit.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Right on. Best of luck!

          • Edward/Breegrodamus™

            Did someone say Death Grips?

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCgxi-h1PoI

          • Salvador Dalí Lama

            Yes. If you took the beginning of “Inanimate Sensation” and turned it into an aggressive noise rock band with dumb, sexual lyrics, that’s what we sound like.

          • Óðinn
          • Detective Fish

            Or The Residents. (I think they finally revealed their real identities recently, though)

    • Good luck man, keep at it! Wear a bag over your head for the live performance if it makes you comfortable.

    • Just go the Mgla route and wear a black mask over your face and a hoodie.

    • Lacertilian
      • Salvador Dalí Lama

        We’ll change it to H0NEYDRIPPER or Honeydrippr then.

        • Lacertilian

          No need, this one is The Honeydrippers

  • ME GORAK B.C.™

    GOOD: MOAR FREE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BAD: NEW DT SUCK BIG ONE!!!!
    UGLY: THINGS GORAK SMASH!!!!!!

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      New DT sucks VERY big one!

    • Salvador Dalí Lama

      I find your lack of Faythe disturbing.

    • tigeraid

      EMPORER. NAFARYUS.

      …will be displeased.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    GOOD: Found a ton of great new music in the last week with the help of you fuckers. Money refunded from shady store for garbage camera purchase.

    BAD: That bathroom clusterfuck. Best of luck getting that resolved, 365.

    UGLY: Bret Michaels.

  • Lacertilian

    I remember you telling us about that sinking ceiling, can’t believe it took this long to resolve. Glad to hear things are looking up for you now dude.

    Good FUCKING AMAZING: A certain detective in St Louis is the best.
    Bad FUCKING ARSEHOLE: My boss.
    Ugly FUCKING AWESOME: This Black Fast shirt!

    • Happened in June, moved in to a new place in September. I just didn’t written about it until now.

      • Lacertilian

        ahhh, fair enough.
        I think it would have been fixed here within a month, especially if the current affairs programs got hold of it. They love that shit.

  • JWEG

    So I hope you guys on the Facebook page have mentioned Migration Fest tons and tons of times and got it so far out of your systems that it explains why it was never mentioned on the Blog proper, because I kept waiting for it to be posted here all week. I was more optimistic when I saw the posts about other festivals. Then less. Then even less.

    The Good:
    Well, obviously: https://www.facebook.com/events/1543092076001586/

    But also: next week is UVIC’s winter “Reading Break”, during which undergraduates do everything but read (or study). All classes are cancelled, so I don’t have to worry about lecture preparations between now and February 17th.

    Bad:
    Unfortunately, I don’t get time off to the same degree (except evenings) since I’m also in a bit of a rush to get the first draft of my Thesis done (also by Feb 17). Any longer and I won’t have the full month to work toward an Examinable Draft done in time for mid-March, when it needs to be made available to my Committee.

    And, yes, I am in a weird position where I’ll be working on the second, more important, Draft starting right when the first one goes to my committee – instead of being able to wait for feedback. Since that could 2-4 weeks, you can see my bind: if I wait for feedback I have at most 2 weeks and at least no time at all to get the Examinable Draft done.

    Ugly:
    My food allergies seem to have got steadily worse since last week, leading to some rather ugly sound effects at completely inopportune moments this week. I’m assuming each intolerance was exacerbated by stress, so I may have to put up with them being more acute than usual for at least 2 more months.

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Good: New Vegas >>>>>>>>
    Bad: nah.
    Ugly: the picture.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Oh, I suppose also for ugly, I shaved my sideburns and sometimes it looks like I have the lesbian mullet ov death. I kinda like it though.

  • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

    Good: Akhlys and Nocternity vinyls. Finally a weekend off work.

    Bad: these student loan vultures. Im almost out of bud.

    Ugly: tapir.

    • Were you able to score a copy of onyx?

      • Lacertilian

        hahaha, same idea, same time.

        • Ha, curious to know where he picked it up.

          • Lacertilian

            Onyx is in my top 5 BM albums. Quite possibly #1. Alas, I don’t have a record player so if I find the CD i’ll be content.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FuYZL5UiBM

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Harps. Its still a v dope album

    • Lacertilian

      Those are two great albums. Harps or Onyx?

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      That’s racist.

  • Waynecro

    Good: My dog thinking he’s super clever for discovering that he can flip his bed upside-down and sleep on the bottom like it’s the top.
    Bad: My grandmother died.
    Ugly: Dementia.

    • Dubs

      I’m sorry, dude

      • Waynecro

        Thanks, man. It sucks, but at least she’s not suffering any longer. Her dementia had gotten really, really bad.

        • Sorry to hear that, man. Just passed the 1 year anniversary of my grandma’s death from bile duct cancer 🙁

          • Waynecro

            Thanks. Sorry about your loss as well. My other grandmother died just over a year ago as well. She had dementia also, but she was much happier most of the time.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I’m sorry. My grandpa is getting out of rehab after his health issues last month.

      • Waynecro

        Thanks. I’m glad your grandfather is doing well.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Thank you. He had massive internal bleeding and had a mild heart attack because of it. He’s also turning 91 on April 29th.

          • Waynecro

            I hope he recovers completely and stays healthy.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I hope he does too. He’s the only grandpatent on my mom’s side because my grandma died 6 days after my 9th birthday.

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Deepest condolences, my friend.

      • Waynecro

        I appreciate that. She was a cool lady. The first time she met my girlfriend, she told her, “You’re very pretty. By the way, I have a pacemaker. Feel it!” and pressed my girlfriends hand against her chest. That was a pretty hilarious moment.

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          Hahahaha, bad ass! She sounds like she was a rad lady.

          • Waynecro

            Before the dementia hit her hard, she was still going out dancing all the time into her late 80s. She was pretty awesome.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            That’s awesome.

    • more beer

      Sorry brother.

      • Waynecro

        Thanks, dude.

        • more beer

          My grandmother had Alzheimer’s so I can how hard that can be. It really sucks when people lose their mentals.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, it was really sad. I’d be talking to her on the phone, and she’d be unable to express herself. That made her angry and sad, and she’d just start weeping.

          • more beer

            Mine was just always pissed off.

          • Waynecro

            She’d get pretty pissed off too. She’d throw herself down and rough herself up a lot.

          • more beer

            Mine liked to take everything out on those around her.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, she did that as well. Before my family had to put her in a home, she’d scream at whoever she was living with. She’d hurt herself and then threaten to tell the authorities her kids were abusing her. Crazy shit, man.

          • more beer

            Mine would do things like that too. Things got really crazy at times.

          • Waynecro

            It’s scary stuff, man. My aunt would be minding her own business, and the cops would show up. “We’re responding to a 911 call about elder abuse at this residence.”

          • more beer

            Damn that is bad.

          • Waynecro

            It was hard to prove they weren’t abusing her. The poor old woman covered herself in bruises. I’m just glad she was having a good day the last time I saw her. She seemed to recognize me and my brother. It was a really nice visit.

          • more beer

            That is a rough situation. But at least your last visit with her turned out good.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, my dad even made her laugh a few times, which was really nice to see.

          • more beer

            nice

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      Sorry for your loss, man.

      • Waynecro

        Thanks. I’m just happy I got to see her one last time a few months ago. She lives across the country, so I didn’t get to see her too often toward the end.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          My grandparents from my mother’s side died in an accident when I was 9 and my other grandmother died of cancer a few years later. So there’s only my grandfather left, who has cancer as well, but his situation is stable now.

          • Waynecro

            Sorry to hear about your grandparents on your mom’s side. My dad’s father died when I was three, and I never met my mom’s dad. I’ve run out of grandparents. I’m glad your grandfather’s condition is stable.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Sorry to hear about that, man. Thanks!

    • Stanley

      Have you got those chipotle aioli covered turds ready?

      • Waynecro

        I hate to disappoint, but it’s just a Safeway-brand chipotle mayo.

    • I feel for ya, that’s painful to have to watch someone go through that.

      • Waynecro

        Thanks. Yeah, dementia’s a real dick of a thing.

    • InfinityOfThoughts

      I’m sorry for your loss. My dad’s mother died from Alzheimer’s, and I know first hand how how and traumatizing that experience can be.

      • Waynecro

        Thank you.

    • Óðinn

      Sorry to hear that, Waynecro.

      • Waynecro

        Thanks, Óðinn.

    • Detective Fish

      Damn, sorry to hear about that. A little over a year ago, my grandmother died partly due to dementia, on top of deliberately starving herself for at least a year.

      • Waynecro

        Thanks. My condolences to you. It’s really sad to see someone suffer so much because of dementia.

    • tigeraid

      My condolences.

      • Waynecro

        Thank you.

    • Sorry for your loss, Necro!

  • Never lived in an apartment but lived in two different houses over the course of a few years. The second one had electric heat and the bills were pricey in the winter.

    Good: The work week is mercifully over and I will drink beer in celebration of that.
    Bad: The weekend is only two days long and I have to repeat this process all over again on Monday.
    Ugly: My son is potty training, cleaning up dookie with no diapers is shitty. He also has a fondness for peeing in closets (my wife’s, not mine yet).

    • This is the part of childcare that makes me believe I’m not meant to be a parent.

      • It’s rough for sure and I’m told the terrible 2’s last up until they turn 4.. One more year of that, hooray!

    • COAL GROHL

      dude my dude squeezed one out into the potty for the first time yesterday!

      • Congrats, mine is inconsistent. He’ll do good for a couple days then go back to diaper mode again.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    GOOD: No more hellish weeks of underpayed, overtime work.

  • EsusMoose

    Good: weekend, felt weirdly really good the last two days, don’t know why. Bad snow storm was basically slush and mostly forgettable now that it’s melted away from sidewalks.
    Bad: theoretical computation science stuff, it’s all the fun of planing out how to solve things but with all the math you hate!
    Ugly: Nothing

  • GOOD: This shitty work week is coming to an end.
    BAD: I’m still getting sidetracked from finishing my company’s website redesign and I can already tell someone’s going to get mad at me for taking so long, even though the very same people that would be mad are the ones asking me to do a bunch of random design projects for them.
    UGLY: I’ve pooped maybe once or twice this whole week. My bowels have been under constant pressure all week and its painful and I feel like shit (almost literally). I really need to start eating better.

    • being given more work when you’ve got multiple unfinished projects <<<<<<<<<<<<<

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        At least you have good jobs. Old Navy gives me 4 hours a week and I clean up the clearance section because they don’t know how to utilize me. Fuck them. The only reason I don’t quit is because I like some of the people and I cant find another job.

        • go to trade school

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m planning on saving up some money to become an EKG Tech. DCC has a program for it for 999 dollars. It also pays well.

          • are you ok?

            Make sure it’s an accredited school. Otherwise that’s a waste of a grand big time. You would be better off learning a trade at Bosces. To be honest. Their classes are affordable.

  • Stanley

    Good: I’m down in OC and I have unlimited access to Stone. It’s roasting outside.

    Bad: I got a little excited and bought too much beer. I have a half marathon to run on Sunday, (well walk actually as my foot is fucked and I haven’t really run since Christmas) and so my in laws will get to drink what’s left over.

    Ugly: My fuckin’ foot.

    • Damn. At least you have too much beer.

      • Stanley

        My only chance to drink it is Sunday after the “race”. It should numb my foot though.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Also being a total bad ass helps.

        • Ha, I know right? I remember when we left MS. It was something like 14u/c. But it has been downhill since lol.

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        Have a few more!

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      I hope you’re feeling better in five days. That baby girl needs her daddy!

  • COAL GROHL

    Good: mailmanbro strikes again
    Bad: my antenna just started missing my local CBS station’s signal JUST in time for the stupid bowl
    Ugly: renting

  • Boss the Turbid Ross

    The Good: Black ‘n Roll, Revolver Brewing, Spirits ( https://spiritsxxx.bandcamp.com/album/discontent ), Bruce Willis and Maggie Smith.
    The Bad: Weekend work
    Nuthin’tafuckwit: Wu-Tang Clan, Tapir

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Also, where the hell is KJM?

      • i dunno but we’ll have a big-ass hug ready for his return

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          he was here earlier today, but i haven’t seen him around since.

      • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

        I miss my buddddyyy 🙁

        What black n roll are you jamming?

        I got some more Catawba Firewater IPAs

        • Boss the Turbid Ross

          same.
          As far as Black n Roll goes, the new Abbath is kinda Black n Roll, so that, Slaegt’s Beautiful and Damned and a band that will be featured tomorrow *hint hint* Also I will probably pre-order the Villainy album featured earlier this morning. I probably sound like a total poser right now, hahaha

          I’m always keeping an ear out for more black n’ roll, I don’t have too much of it right now. It’s a sub-genre that i enjoy quite a lot when i find it done how i think it should sound, hahaha, but have just recently been digging a little deeper into (i genre bounce far too often). Please share any and all suggestions!

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Young and in the Way i would maybe group in there (but its a bit crust too).

            Slaegt was a bit too thrashy for bnr but i did rly dig that

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            I will be checking them out.

            Yeah, i hear you. I think some of the riffing has a pre-Thrash vibe to it though, more Trad-Metal. That’s why I kinda lump them in there.

          • Lacertilian

            I wrote about these guys a little while ago, some great Black/Thrash n Roll vibes from Sydney, Australia.
            https://bastardizer.bandcamp.com/album/strike-of-the-bastard

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            This album is dope af too

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Cool, I will give them a listen.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            A couple days back i was talking about bnr and was suggested a couple bands

            Theres of course Kvelertak but i assume youve listened to them

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            I’m digging YaitW!
            Yep.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            NC band too, so theyre extra good for me

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Ha, I noticed that, figured you were friends with them. Or at least seen them live.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            I saw them maybeeee january last year. One hell of a show.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            I bet!

        • more beer

          That rally didn’t answer his question. Did he get mad and quit again?

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            I dont know.

          • more beer

            aight.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Does he do that?

          • more beer

            He did once.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Twice.

          • more beer

            I only knew of once.

          • Boss the Turbid Ross

            Dang. That sucks

          • Detective Fish

            Maybe he’s just busy.

    • Lacertilian

      Hey Ross, just saw this and thought you might enjoy it.
      @Ron_Deuce:disqus too

      • Boss the Turbid Ross

        HAHAHA, that is amazing! Thank you for sharing. i cannot upvote this enough.

  • Max

    On apartment-related shenanigans:
    BAD: This week I had to spend $450 getting my roller shutters fixed. I like having roller shutters, but man are they expensive to maintain. I’ve also got to get an electrician, a plumber and some junk removalists in at some point.

    GOOD: Toasted sandwiches with tomato, cheese and pineapple.

    UGLY: Piers Morgan’s attitude towards women displaying their cleavage. Perplexingly ugly.

    • Lacertilian

      Were they installed by Siro?

      • Max

        Nah, Ted Mulray did mine.

        • Lacertilian

          Holy shit, that is a name I haven’t heard for ages.
          Side note: I’m going to try those toasted sandwiches, I love pineapple.

          • Max

            Do you remember (you might be too young) “The World of Ian” on Roy & HG’s Club Buggery? Starring Paul Sironen as “Ian”, and Ted Mulray as Ian’s Dad.

            Go easy on the pineapple at first; it can overpower the taste of the tomato. Eventually you get used to it and pile it on like nobody’s business. I usually bung a bit of pepper on the whole thing too. I go through an entire tomato’s worth of slices just for two sandwiches, but I ease off on the cheese; you don’t need much (one slice per sandwich will do).

            In the words of Homer Simpson: “Mmmm….open-faced club sandwich.”

          • Lacertilian

            I was young but Mum used to watch Club Buggery, I don’t remember that particular segment though.
            Roy & HG are fucking legends.

          • Max

            It might not have been on Club Buggery; they had another, lower-key, ABC show before that one from which The World of Ian segments derive. The name escapes me.

    • Óðinn

    GOOD: Bernie Sanders in the debate last night. He sticks to his progressive values.

    BAD: Not many auditions lately.

    UGLY: Phil Anselmo, political apathy in America, firearms.

    • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

      New Hamster is gonna feel the Bern come monday

      • Óðinn

        I hope so. Looks positive.

        • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

          Bernie will have big trouble in my neck of the woods, unfortunately.

          • Óðinn

            The Carolina numbers don’t look good? I know that Bernie is not as well-liked in the south as Clinton, but I still hope he can close gaps in some states and win. I know Clinton is the favorite, but Sanders more closely represents my values personally.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            Clinton is so well established in the south. It will probably be his weakest area. And some of Trumps strongest.

          • Óðinn

            Yeah, on the surface, it seems strange that Trump would be big in the south. But I do understand, he’s pandering by saying things that some people want to hear.

          • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

            If it doesnt go Trump-Clinton in NC, i will be real surprised.

          • Detective Fish

            Well, he admitted in a recent interview that his whole ‘build a wall around Mexico’ thing is just something to wake up his audience. Even he most likely knows that everything he’s proposing is undo-able, but keep in mind that most of his fan base is mostly poor and under-educated lower middle class folks who have zero idea how the system works.

          • Óðinn

            Exactly.

    • Max
  • Waynecro

    Bonus Good: My signed clear LP of Abysmal Dawn’s Obsolescence just arrived (a perk for contributing to the band’s crowdfunding campaign to raise money for touring-van repairs).

    • LVL 11 BLACKBEARD

      Tight bhole

    • Boss the Turbid Ross

      Nice!

  • dr.derelict

    In June I heard a fight outside of my apartment. This wasn’t exactly unusual, so I went outside to watch / maintain order. I then witnessed two counts of attempted vehicular homicide, one of which left a neighbor bleeding and incapacitated in the parking lot. The driver was caught and charged. I moved.

  • Óðinn

    No KJM today?

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      I think he was banned. He commented on the first article of the day.

      • more beer

        He still has a comment up on that thread.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          He responded to Joe’s comment, but that response has disappeared and there’s no “this comment was deleted” in its place. Iirc, banning doesn’t delete your comments anymore. I don’t think it happened when I was banned for 10 minutes.

          • more beer

            What did he do? Posting 4 youtube videos doesn’t seem like a really good bannable offense.

      • Detective Fish

        Nope, I’m still here. And I didn’t see any ‘comment removed’ in my reply thingy, so I’m still around, I’m guessing. Wow, I go without commenting for a few hours, and everyone’s two inches away from calling the A-Team to come hunt for me!

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          I was talking about KJM.

          • Detective Fish

            I realize that now after looking at that article. Apparently he went on a Scissorfight binge and Joe slapped him down. I doubt he got banned though. There’s only a few people who’ve gotten banned on here as far as I know (including your cabana boy, Smitty).

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Smitty is banned here?

          • Detective Fish

            As far as I can tell. Joe seemed to be getting irritated with him badgering you on here.

          • Óðinn

            Smitty is banned?

          • Detective Fish

            I think so.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            This is a good.

    • more beer

      No KJU either.

      • Óðinn

        He’s been here later in the day recently (or earlier, depending on your perspective). He hasn’t been banned too?

        • more beer

          That’s good. I didn’t actually see what was said. So I don’t know what happened exactly.

        • Detective Fish

          Nope, not that I know of. Spent most of the day just napping, since I had about 5 hours of sleep within 2 days, and wanted to get my sleep schedule somewhat near normal.

          • Óðinn

            I’ll have to get my sleep patterns somewhat normal soon too.

          • Detective Fish

            LMAO, I’m tickled that people were all like “OMG, KJU, where are you, my sweet, well endowed, beefy prince?!!?” after just a few hours of not being on here.

          • Óðinn

            You may be embellishing that narrative a bit. But yes, there may have been some concern that you were banned.

      • Detective Fish

    Gah, I had that same shit happen at my place back in Chicago, and the only time my landlord would do anything besides the usual “oh, we’ll get on it” was when I threatened to call the city. Thankfully I’m in a better place (though I could definitely do without the constant screaming and yelling).

    The good: pretty chill week, as usual.
    The bad: nothing so far.
    The Ugly: Yo mama!

    The Good: Fuck it
    The Bad: Fuck it
    The Ugly: hard drive in my PC died. I lost many things, not least of which my Fallout 4 game. There is no god, metal or otherwise.
