Flush It Friday: These Pugs Are Outta Control

Now is the time for Friday.

Hi everyone. The last few weeks have been incredibly, relentlessly hectic. I’ve encountered deeply complicated and completely unexpected challenges that I’m still reeling from. Over the past couple of days, things have mercifully slowed down a bit. While I’ve been catching a breath, I couldn’t help but notice that my pugs are being bad as hell.

These boys need training. Franklin the puppy only pauses from eating weird shit so that he can lick me relentlessly. Nathan, the elder tripod, no longer listens to my commands, preferring instead to run away from me to eat china berries and torment my poor cats. They both get a butt-ton of exercise and yet their indolence persists.

As a dog owner, I’m aware that poor dog behavior is a reflection of my responsibilities. I gotta buckle down and commit to training these guys. Gotta read some Cesar Milan blog posts. Gotta carry treats upon my person at all times. Gotta crack the metaphorical whip on these pugs.

I’m just tired. All the time. One like = one prayer for committed training practices.

The floor is yours. It’s the weekend so act accordingly. Thank you for your continued support of this web-based Toilet. We’ll see you tomorrow.

      Speaking about Cannibal Corpse, I’ve been jamming Bloodthirst quite a few times the past few days. By far the best album with Corpsegrinder…and I’d even say it’s their greatest work in general.

        WILL HAVE TO GIVE A LISTEN!!!!!!!! BEEN CHECKED OUT ON CC SINCE GORE OBSESSED FOR NO GOOD REASON!!!!!!!!

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          I’d say Eaten Back to Life, Butchered at Birth, Tomb of the Mutilated, The Bleeding and Bloodthirst are really fucking good. Most of their other albums aren’t really “HOLY SHIT I NEED TO GET THIS NOW”-exciting, but I don’t think they ever really made a “bad” album either. Probably one of the most consistent bands in metal.

          • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ

            100O00O0O00% AGREED

      • sweetooth0

        Ha, I just loaded Bloodthrist on my usb stick for my car. Felt it was time to revisit this classic. I’ll always be partial to the Barnes era, but this is definitely one the best of the Corpsegrinder stuff.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          Definitely. I actually think it’s better than Corpsegrinder’s work with Monstrosity as well – tho those albums are good, mind you.

      AWESOME

  • tigeraid

    n’yoh my god the pugs.

    The Good: VACATIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOOOOON. Georgian Bay hear I come.
    The Bad: my throat/chest issue is still not fixed after almost 9 months of anguish. Kinda hoping the reduced stress and fresh air helps it.
    The Ugly: Hurricanes, global warming, etc. Stay safe Florida peeps.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      maybe see a Dr?

      • tigeraid

        Er… Seen several.

  • Just purchased the newest Cannabis Corpse, Inanimate Existence and Tera Melos albums. Unfortunately I have to work all weekend so I won’t get much listening time until Monday. 🙁 Also, the missus is out of town so I’ll probably starve slowly over the next few days.

  • Howard Dean

    I’ve been listening to a lot of Motley Crue lately. I’ve already ventured firmly into dad/dad rock territory, but apparently I’m slipping into “OMG I need to buy a Mustang and Harley-Davidson and date a waitress at Hooters” mid-life crisis dad rock territory. Good times.

    Bad:

    I mean, technically most of the first three sections (Scream Factory collection) are “Bad” movies. They’re Good Bad movies, though.

    Also bad: not enough time this weekend to revisit more than a few of them.

    Ugly: [subject to later addendum]

    • Carlos Parlo

      Have you checked out any of the Arrow Video Blu Rays? Lately I think they’ve surpassed Scream Factory in great schlocky horror with excellent picture scan and extras

      • JWG

        There’s an Arrow in there – The Beyond (steelbook region-free). I will probably get more of their US or regionless ones eventually.

        I’m looking to expand several of my subcollections, actually. That and Blue Underground are just where attention is most warranted given my interests.

        • Carlos Parlo

          The new “Re-Animator” Arrow is great. So is “The Bird with the Crystal Plumage”.

  • Bad: Climatic change, hurricanes, earthquakes, Maracaibo, minimum wage raises in inflation, new editor at work.

    Good: Staying alive and with health, writing, returning home tired and get my HP recovered by wonderful food cooked by my wonderful wife, music, melodies, videogames, books, tv, games, movies, travelling with my mind while being squashed by several people in full crowded buses.

    Ugly (Yet beautiful): My farts after spending three continous days eating black beans and plantains <3

    Stay safe, people on the US!

    And because, of course, that alone is not quite sweet enough to cause diabetes; it’s called a “Hug”.

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    Good: I won a Nuclear Blast CD copy of this rare little classic in an online auction.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3a0rL-kQrNo

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      Maybe good: anybody seen that new IT movie yet?

      • Carlos Parlo

        I thoroughly enjoyed it and it exceeded my expectations.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          Definitely gonna check that one out. Here’s hoping it won’t be too “family friendly” and that the set pieces do have an unnerving vibe instead of full blown Hollywood CGI fests.

          • Carlos Parlo

            It didn’t feel overly family friendly to me. They were comfortable letting you know off the bat that the protagonists weren’t immune to horrible things happening to them simply because they’re children. It felt as honest as a big-budget adaptation can. There is certainly some CGI in full effect rather than old-school practical effects of the classic horror films but it’s quality CGI that make aspects of Pennywise (including a glimpse of the “deadlights”) much more effective than the old TV miniseries. I was surprised that, to me at least, there were several authentically scary moments.

    • Damn, son! Nice!

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Cheers! I already checked a lot of “rare” albums off my bucket list though there’s still a few to go. It may sound weird, but the only CD copies I can find of Death Angel’s The Ultra-Violence are crappy bootlegs. So here’s hoping they reissue that one in the near future.

        • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

          Speaking of rare albums, I’ve been hunting down a copy of Fear Of God’s Within The Veil (I know you love that one) for years. The only copies I’ve been able to find are either insanely pricey (100 US dollars and above) or beat up promos with punch holes (and still pricey)

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I own a copy of that album (a Warner Bros pressing for the European market). I’ve noticed it’s easier for Europeans to come by many rare albums (on Discogs, Ebay, etc…) than it is for many North Americans.

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            I guess it is the distribution, I don’t know. Europe has always been more receptive to metal than the US. In the case of WTV, it was one of those albums that came out of a major label, didn’t sell well, and the label never bothered to repress them, yet retained the rights, and nobody can repress them without paying the exorbitant amounts of money a major label usually demands, essentially keeping them out of print

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yep. For instance, I get that Nuclear Blast and Roadrunner are too busy selling stuff from their popular flagship bands, but if they’re not gonna reissue their old school stuff themselves, at least they could sell the rights to a smaller underground label that could press it for a reasonable price.
            …but nope…

            Sometimes some labels also make strange reissue decisions. When it comes to metal-related stuff, probably the most expensive fucker I own is a CD copy of The Angelic Process’ Weighing Souls With Sand. I noticed a label did reissue that album’s predecessor Coma Waering (also a great album) but they didn’t reissue Weighing Souls With Sand on cd, despite the latter being the more acclaimed album.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNu9JuURXL8

          • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

            The weirdest part is that sometimes they don’t even have to sell the rights. They can license the albums to another label to do a new pressing, and actually make money without doing absolutely anything (and to their credit, Roadrunner has actually been doing that recently). The other label does all the work and they would get a cut of the sales. To me it makes more sense than just leaving the masters in a warehouse somewhere gathering dust.

            I once had a conversation with a dude that claimed to have been an intern for Slash Records back in the 90s, and I asked why they didn’t let another label do a reissue of Failure’s Fantastic Planet. He said that was because that would affect fan expectation if they ever decide to do the reissue themselves. To me that is a crock of shit. Is WB really waiting for fan expectation to be so big that it will make WTV go platinum if they reissue it?

    GOOD: Checking out the 2017 version of It on Saturday. Re-watching the ol’ miniseries now and re-confirming that the only thing that was really much good about it was Tim Curry. Will be cool to have it fresh on the mind to contrast with the new version though! Got the fire pit installed and my backyard project is nearly complete. The weather is lookin nice this weekend, so we’re thinkin of doing a little backyard campout stay-cation thing. HAIL roasting weenies, mallow and drinkin some brews around the fire!

    I finally voted for the first time ever last night in the byelection, so now I’m fully allowed to bitch loudly about everything the government is doing wrong, ha ha ha!

    BAD: My days of insane spending on physical media must come to an end for a while so I can finally dig my ass out of debt (which is substantial…). It’s been too long with me just ignoring shit so I’ll just have to live with downloading only (other than for absolutely necessary shit).

    UGLY: I had to sell my passes for Black Mourning Light in October (the fest with Blasphemy). It just isn’t financially possible for us to travel to Edmonton and afford for the gas/hotel/food/drinks/merch. It’s a bummer, but like I mention in my “BAD” above, I have to face the realsies.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      Damn dude, I’m sorry to hear it’s gotten to you so much. I hope you can get out of this mess soon.

      • sweetooth0

        Well it’s many factors of course. But basically me and Shannon really had to take a hard look at our behaviour and what we want for our future and make some changes. In the end it’s a postive thing, just sucks that when I decide this there’s like 5 albums I want that go up for pre-order, ha ha ha!!

        • Señor Jefe El Rossover

          I feel ya man, bills and albums always seem to come out at the same time, haha! Know that you will have a reserved copy of Horrid Dominion when they’re ready.

          • sweetooth0

            Very much looking forward. Was pretty cool to see a logo I designed on the spine of a real release!

    • Howard Dean

      I’ve done the weening oneself off of physical media purchases. It can be tough, but totally necessary. Went from buying like 8-10 CDs a month to maybe 8-10 per year. It’s doable.

      It’s a sonofabitch at first, but stick with it. Once you realize that 90% of the shit you would get excited for and had to own was really stuff that you didn’t need (or really want, for that matter), it will get easier. Good luck, dude!

      • sweetooth0

        That’s my thinking too. When I really sat down and thought about it, I had to admit that a lot of my stuff essentially sits on a shelf and collects dust.

        • Howard Dean

          Totally. You quickly realize that you basically get FOMO (I hate this expression, but it fits) when new albums get released, and end up ordering dozens of physical releases you don’t really care about. Big money pit.

          • sweetooth0

            Fear of Missing Out is a total issue for me. But I’m starting to let go of some of that shit. There’s the albums, but also the shows too (which has become a HUGE cost over the last few years). I mean I’m not in my 20’s anymore (closer to 40 these days, ugh), and frankly I don’t think I want to be that dirty old drunk dude that still goes to every local metal bar gig and tries to talk to the young kids. Plus it seems like now when I go to shows I just end up doing shit I regret tryin to keep up with the young kids.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        I did this recently myself, but not a scale back that large, hahah

        • Howard Dean

          I scaled back majorly and I’ve got to say that I don’t miss it at all. I just pick up and listen t the essentials. Actually feel a bit of regret for all the random music shit I’ve bought over the years. Now I just have piles of CDs (1500+) that are mostly worthless and that I don’t care much about. T’was a harrowing realization.

          • Señor Jefe El Rossover

            Did you mean 8-10 new albums a year, or in general?

            Luckily, I’m catching myself early with these types of realizations. Talking and listening to older dudes helps

          • Howard Dean

            8-10 CDs purchased in total, counting new and old releases.

          • Señor Jefe El Rossover

            Damson

          • Max

            I reckon I would’ve been about 50 CDs in on building my collection before I realized that you can on-sell the stuff that doesn’t really light your fire. Back in the day when CDs were actually valuable, it was a good way to keep your collection from getting out of control. Nowadays, of course, CDs are worthless so if you buy one you own it for life. The trade-off is that you can endlessly audition music on the internet before committing to a physical copy.

          • Carlos Parlo

            I’ve been surprised at a seeming reverse in the value of CDs, at least with genres like metal.While I grew up buying CDs I switched to digital and only bought vinyl when I wanted physical media around 2011 or so. I began buying CDs again about 5 years ago and finding classic metal CDs at the price I want to pay is sometimes challenging. Even new releases I snag for 8bucks or so now (that would’ve been 15 10 years ago) retain or sometimes increase their sale value on ebay and discogs.I wonder if that will blow up when us dudes in our 30s stop or die!

          • Max

            That’s interesting; I had no idea about a reverse in value. That said I’ve always been a firm and vocal believer that the market for CDs is going to last a lot longer than people think. For those who want a physical but digital format in audio, there is literally no other format that has caught on and stayed viable.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        Well currently I own more than 800 metal albums on cd; yet I’m planning on not ordering anything over the internet until 2018 now.

        • sweetooth0

          Yeah I have about 2000 CDs and somewhere around 500-600 records, plus like 50 or 60 tapes. Not to mention the 1000 or so dvd’s/blurays. So yeah, need to slow down and quite trying to keep up with every damn new release and re-issue.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            2000? Holy shit!
            Though most of the albums I own are “classics” of some sort (underground or mainstream or otherwise). I don’t really keep up with all new releases and I mostly scavenge for a lot of “rare” records as well.

          • sweetooth0

            I’m both, old school stuff (which it seems like there is an almost limitless amount of), but I try to keep up with new releases as well.

          • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

            It’s a fine line to walk. “Oh, they’re re-releasing Leviathan on super-mega-deluxe whale blood vinyl??” Guess I’ll buy it even though I already have it.” Or suddenly realizing you don’t own all of Black Sabbath’s 70’s releases, and need them all at that moment.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      I’m so sorry to hear that, man! Reckless spending on physical media is one of life’s greatest pleasures

      • sweetooth0

        Well, I need to pay off the debts first, then I can start buying myself presents again when I actually deserve them, ha ha ha!

  • Señor Jefe El Rossover

    Good: Manilla Road is playing a few Texas dates in October and I am beyond excited to see them live.

    • Ayyy! Texas will have a METALSTÖRM on Octobeeeeer!

      Manilla Road = mandatory upvote

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bqa5LKOaMd4

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        And mandatory headbanging!

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        I found an original tape copy of Out of the Abyss the other day at a local record store

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          Rad!
          I really think that’s Manilla Road’s most scandalously underrated album.

          • Señor Jefe El Rossover

            Undoubtedly! Could be my favorite actually, if I thought about it long enough

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Mystification would probably my favorite if I really HAD to choose one. Though Crystal Logic to Out of the Abyss is one of the best album streaks in the history of the metal genre imho.

          • Señor Jefe El Rossover

            Death By the Hammer alone escalates that album to royalty

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Every track on the album is killer.

            The thing about his vox is that the guy just sounds “old”. Not only old, to be honest, he almost sounds ancient.
