Flush It Friday: Third-Eye Focus

No good, no bad, no ugly. This week I’m going to flip this shit around.

Normally, the Friday Flushing is our time to complain and focus on the negative shit getting around. Even though I’ve considered going on a Friday ranting spree before, I’ve felt that should I open the torrents of hatred it would undoubtedly fill the bowl and end up staining the floor tiles. While leaving a giant mess for our Toilet overlords to clean up would be fun, I don’t think it would ease the problems any of us face. So today I propose something different, I’m going to focus on something to distract us from the fucked-up things happening in our minds, our lives and all over the world.

This year our humble home, this lovable little latrine in which we dwell, has released some undeniably killer content. Considering we don’t have paid commercials or a marketing unit, I’m going to take it upon myself to spotlight some of the excellent articles the writers here have spent their precious and often scant free time on. So I think it is only fair to give them the respect they rightly deserve.

Ed has been consistently dishing out bouts of news, noise and noose-tightening sounds. My personal pick was his excellent in-depth interview with Doug Moore from Pyrrhon, where they covered such ground as skronk, cancer, gettin’ swole and the ethics of bringing more people into this world. Check it out here.


In between hunting down that little prick John Conner and reprimanding those that refer to him as a replicant or a mere robot, Cybernetic Organism has been choppin’ photos, reviewing gigs, interviewing A7X fans and recommending films. Being that prolific is surely only possible due to his complex circuitry. The series which always cracks me up is the adventures of B’Dubs Bro(s).


Everyone’s favourite avocado-based Dip has been sporadically dropping a wide-variety of engaging and often provocative material. Whether it be shitting on Quentin Tarantino, reminding you that you’re a music snob or uploading bruised butt pics, he’s never boring. There was even that time he finally wrote about metal!


The baby pumpkin HessianHunter has been reviewing, interviewing, posting exclusive streams and had a major part to play in the Best Unsigned Band Comp. His Maeth tour diary series earlier this year was a highlight for me, as aside from the wild and often funny stories, I got to vicariously ‘tour’ the Western half of the USA with the great road-snaps he took.


The underwater deity Dagon has been busy becoming a Doctor, but that hasn’t stopped him posting some excellent stoner material, news roundups, hip-hop, chilled tunes and other oddities. Was tough for me to choose between his recent interview/review with Regarde Les Hombre Tomber or the killer reviews of Elder and Saturndust. I chose South American psychedelic space doom.


Sticking on the South American tip, the noble Venezuelan and most exalted malandro slayer Link has been consistently bringing to the table a range of folk, melodic, groundbreakers and even cooking up amazing merol chicken (Source: I tried it and it rules). My favourite piece happens to be his most recent, his brief guide to neo-folk. His emotive writing style is above and beyond. See for yourself!


Perhaps the saving grace of this porcelain bowl is the mighty Spear. Apart from taking over Tech-Death Thursday, he also has the unenviable task of rifling through ALL of the new music in order to compile the excellent and comprehensive guide that is This Toilet Tuesday, and then do it all over again. Every. Fucking. Week. His highly celebrated intros are always the stand-out, I can’t pick just one.


The bowl-father, Papa Joe, of thrashing and killing fame, has somehow managed to maintain a degree of sanity whilst keeping this place afloat. Adrift among the stools and paper pulps that are strewn throughout the bowl of life, he has handled collisions, numerous flushings and the general stench of all of us, the filthy fucks who inhabit this place. How he does this without spin-kicking us all into oblivion is beyond me. Maybe because people make wacky birthday posts for him? Actually, looking at that, it is more likely that he is just as filthy as the rest of us.


Last but by no means least, is W. He might have been a shitty pres, but this dude knows how to write. The topic could be; music, horror, art, lolbuttz, weirdness, skronk, film, lyrics, both traditional & avant-garde reviews, interviews, cooking, video games, fantasy, literature or just about anything else imaginable, and somehow he keeps it captivating. All of his work is high-end quality, which is no mean feat considering he writes upwards of 5 pieces every damn week. One of my favourite pieces was his Beksiński and Heavy Metal – A Surreal Love Story.


Sorry I didn’t have time to include everyone who writes for the site, this actually took a lot more time than I originally imagined. Now it’s time for you to post your weekly flushings, or maybe champion an article you enjoyed this year.

    • Guppusmaximus
    • Lacertilian

      Just listening to this now, not as riffy as I’d like, there were 2 or 3 tracks on Pelagial which had some air-guitar worthy riffs, would like to hear the rest of the album though.

      • EsusMoose

        I like the lack of general variations, violin to carry the melody and have the guitar come in just to add a weight to the low end. I haven’t listened to Mono’s side of the split yet, it’s only a 2 track ep both tracks being 10+ minutes in length.

    • Mmmmm. Digging this.

  • COAL ROLL

    Good: It’s Friday
    Better: I have a nice bottle of Patron waiting at home for me
    Best: My big Million $ client just renewed for 2016

    • Lacertilian

      Which Patron dude?

      • COAL ROLL

        Anejo GRAN PATRON my broseph…gotta celebrate that renew in style

        • Lacertilian

          Fuck, AUD$550 a bottle.
          The only time I could justify buying patron over Cuervo gold was when I got a bottle of XO duty free at the airport. I’m amazed it’s still got 1/3rd left after 11 months.

  • There’s a craft beer bar within walking distance from my house. Went there twice last week and played Deicide, Bobby Blue Bland, Converge, Cave In and Ol’ Dirty Bastard on the jukebox. Other than that everything else can be flushed into the Hudson River.

    Bad: I’m the miserable failure. Everyone’s against me, everything I do fails completely.

    • COAL ROLL

      just put on your toilet t-shirt and remember that not all people are the same whoever they are

      • tertius_decimus

        You know, sometimes I wish I lived in far future for just one reason: quantum teleportation. I’d teleportate myself to give everyone in the ToH a beer or two and say “Thank you!”.

        When you have to deal with people with bad intentions or just hypocrites, you see them all the time, they happen on your road here and there. When you wanna have a nice talk with someone good (in all senses), you realise that geography is too wide for this to happen.

    • Maik Beninton™

      I am also a miserable failure, I can’t go to the market without getting a complaint,
      ‘hey you forgot this’, ‘hey we didn’t actually needed this’.

      • tertius_decimus

        I got fired again. Guess what the boss said? It’s laughable yet disgusting:

        — Why leaving [in context of not doing the job overtime every fucking day]? Have you got anything aside your job?

        He was quite serious asking that.

        • Waynecro

          Bosses are usually dicks. Don’t let the bastards grind you down.

        • BEARD-SPLITTER

          My job is now actively supressing my overtime. After forcing me into it all summer.

        • coal roll that douche. you’ll find a job with a better boss

          • tertius_decimus

            Wanna start my own business. Obstacles are:

            1. Fear of the unknown. Management is something outta this planet for me.
            2. No starting money.

      This is how I feel, every day, the moment I wake up, and it’s why I could never lead a truly sober life.

      • tertius_decimus

        My father was inevitable alcoholic with shifts in his mind. He abused mother alot. Prior the day she decided to split the family, he kicked her with the drill in the head. USSR-made drills were heavy like a tank (all-metal construction) unlike modern ones. Concussion and torn ear as a result.

        That’s why I avoid drinking alcohol like a plague.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          I don’t drink.

          • tertius_decimus

            Glad to hear. Really.

        • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

          Kinda tongue and cheek for me to say after my long long periods of severe alcoholism, but I can’t stand the vast majority of people when they’re shitfaced. Especially those prone to violence (which thankfully I’ve never gotten to that point, no matter how drunk).

    • more beer

      I don`t think anyone here is against you.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: A lot of concerts are coming to my area next year

    Bad: Operation Mindcrime is coming to my area to play the album they’re named after but Pamela Moore is not playing Sister Mary.

    Ugly: Goddamn Deathclaws

    • you don’t have to attend that Geoff Tater Tot show

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Yes I do. I want to hear him perform the album.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          Why do you want to see a performance that you already know will suck balls?

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I want to see it because I like watching dumpster fires.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Well, it’s your money.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            That is true.

          • Boss the “Philthy Animal” Ross

            I hope the show goes well, it would be cool to see the whole album played.

          • more beer

            So set a dumpster on fire. A lighter only costs a buck and a half.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Isn’t that illegal?

          • more beer

            Of course it is it`s called arson.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          It should speak volumes to you that Pamela Moore wants nothing to do with Tate, yet she has performed the song with the real QR.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BLx9m1M3X8

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I just like to watch the dumpster fire known as Geoff Tate. It’s captivating.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Reading about it is enough. Paying to see him would imply that I approve.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I approve of the dumpster fire. I don’t approve of the new album though. Thank god he’s not performing it.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            What a great way to show how much faith and confidence he has in his latest hired guns by not performing a single song they co-wrote!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’d rather not hear the new album. It’s awful except for one song.

        • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

          And see him in his underwear and housecoat playing sax.

    This week I just want to share that I’m grateful my parents are alive. They got in a nasty crash Wednesday evening, but they’re little Toyota’s safety functions worked perfectly.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      That’s terrible. At least they’re okay.

    • I drive a Toyota, good to know if I ever crash.

      • COAL ROLL

        JUST FYI….Toyota’s don’t seem to go that far without oil in them

          • COAL ROLL

            it was kind of a joke related to one of our friend’s here’s experience with Jiffy Lube recently

          • EsusMoose

        • I change the oil every 5k and plus I live right next door to a mechanic. Everything is tip top.

      • Vote for Jeb

        It’s why I got my PhD. I want to make roads safer for everyone.

        • COAL ROLL

          I bought a huge truck as a result of this event. At least the road safety of myself and my family has improved….other drivers…not so much.

          • Vote for Jeb

            Interestingly, I read a paper that claimed that if everyone on the road drove sedans, everyone would be safer overall. Since that’s not the case, though, having a big vehicle can surely help.

          • COAL ROLL

            I think I read something similar somewhere…that large vehicles are really only safe(r) for the occupants.

          • Vote for Jeb

            Yah, it’s because of the physics and lift.

          • Óðinn

            What about rollover accidents, W? Do vehicles with higher centers of gravity roll over more often and cause injury that way?

          • Vote for Jeb

            Yes, SUVs are statistically more prone to rollover than smaller sedans.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            What’s your take on the decreased durability of vehicles versus older models which were made of steel mostly (versus the aluminum of today’s vehicles)?

          • Vote for Jeb

            That’s a bit of a fallacy. Newer vehicles are designed to crumple, which is actually safer than having a solid steel block slam back into you during a crash. Less weight = less energy going into the crash.

        • tertius_decimus

          That is great that sole person can make streets safer. Almost unreachable dream for 3rd world countries.

          • Vote for Jeb

            Developing countries are getting better, my friend. The EU is trying to find ways to improve road safety everywhere.

          • tertius_decimus

            What’s your take on bicycle lanes, especially combined bike/pedestrian lanes?

          • Vote for Jeb

            I think combined bike/pedestrian lanes are hazardous, but bike lanes themselves offer some benefits. The safety impacts aren’t proven, but they can help.

          • tertius_decimus

            Thanks!

          • Vote for Jeb

            You’re welcome. I actually wrote my Master’s Thesis on bicycle policy, but I’m not nearly as knowledgeable about that as I am road safety.

          • tertius_decimus

            In Ukraine bicycle gets more rights on the road, the sheer mass of cyclists is hard to deny or leave unnoticed. In Belarus, for example, cyclist on the road is an outlaw. Cyclists are obliged to use sidewalks which is hazardous, as you’ve stated.

          • Vote for Jeb

            In the US, it really depends on where you are. Some cities have great bicycle infrastructure and culture, but other cities, like mine, don’t have very well-connected bike networks, and the cyclists behave like jerks.

          • tertius_decimus

            In Ukraine jerky behaviour leads cyclist to death, actually, due to bad driving culture.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            The bad behavior of other cyclists has pretty much ruined bicycling for me as a hobby. I only use my bike when absolutely necessary now.

          • Óðinn

            People who drive trucks that say F150, F250, F350 on them tend to behave the worst in my experience.

          • Vote for Jeb

            Agreed on these points. I see a ton of lifted trucks on campus that I’m certain are not used for work.

            You should let the bike riders in Denver read it. A friend and I had to scream at about ten who decided they didn`t need to obey a stop sign. We almost took them all out with her suv. It would have been their own fault.

          • Vote for Jeb

            That tends to happen in big cities because they weren’t developed with bikes in mind. If you want to see the exact opposite, check out Boulder’s transportation system.

          • more beer

            There are bike lanes all over Denver. It isn`t the bike lanes that are the problem it`s the bike riders not following the rules of the road. I know Boulder is more bike friendly.

          • megachiles

    Good: The new Tactical Katana Machete from Cold Steel. This thing’s a fucking beast that combines the brutal heft of a machete with the functional form of a katana. It’s great for home defense (if you don’t like guns), and it probably will save your life if a zombie apocalypse ever happens. Or you could just use it to cut up random shit in your backyard.
    Bad: Nearly all the things.
    Ugly: The mustache currently growing on my face. My brother has been busting my stones about my lack of facial hair, so I decided to let the ‘stache grow in. I’m in my 30s and have never before allowed my facial hair to grow.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        I remember when I thought no one could compete with Daryl for the title of resident bad ass. How wrong I was. And now we have Morgan who’s giving them both a serious run for their money.

        • Waynecro

          I like Morgan, but his no-kill philosophy is going to get people killed.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            His philosophy helped him regain his sanity, and it will help Rick and the others realize there has to be more to life than simply surviving.

          • Waynecro

            His philosophy certainly has merit; it’s a useful counterpoint to the kill-everything mentality of some of the survivors. Like most philosophies, it’s not 100 percent applicable to every situation. The primary issue is the damage his philosophy can have on others. When the personal choice not to kill results in the deaths of others, you have a problem.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’m sure a time will come when Morgan realizes that. He understands people like the Wolves view the world as kill or be killed, and he will have to use deadly force to defend the people who count on him.

          • Waynecro

            That’s what I’m hoping. The apocalypse is no place to work out categorical imperatives.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’m sure this issue will be thrown into sharp relief once the next Governor-esque villain shows up next season.

          • Waynecro

            Most definitely. No spoilers, but the “Governor-esque villain” that showed up most recently in the comics (at the end of the third compendium) is the baddest thing ever.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            CAT ZOMBIE?

          • Waynecro

            How did you know? A giant cat zombie with snakes for arms and a mutated spider for a butt!!!

          • KJM, Shake Zula
          • Waynecro

            Holy shit. That’s awesome! Thanks! I was wondering when that character was going to show up. He’s great. The big threat that follows him in the comics is awesome and menacing on a completely different level, though.

        • BEARD-SPLITTER

          I couldnt believe when i heard the other day that show was still on

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            They’re still writing the novels as well( I think).

          • Waynecro

            It’s a cool show. The comics are good as well. Brutal as fuck.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Michonne doesn’t have nearly enough screen time lately.

          • Waynecro

            And when she does get screen time, it’s usually just her glaring at someone.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Or doing the Wu-Tang choppin’ heads thing.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Less glaring, more swording.

            The cast is getting bigger by the season. We’ve had next to no Daryl this season either.

          • Waynecro

            The episode that will air this week should have a lot of Daryl–at least the previews make it look that way.

      • Waynecro

        I’d like to believe I’d be that badass in a zombie apocalypse. I definitely possess the necessary weaponry.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          As much as I like TWD, I have no desire to live during a zombie apocalypse.

          • Waynecro

            It certainly would be a drag.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Imagine all the drugs there would be just layin around

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            One of the best scenes in the whole series is when Michael Rooker rejoins the good guys in their prison hideout and they discover him tearing apart mattresses to no avail. They ask why and he answers “Some of the best dope I ever had was stuff I found hidden while I was in stir. This place must’ve been no fun at all”. Classic.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            What i dont get is how there are still zombies. Wouldnt they run out of food (ie people). Just like any epidemic (someone will know the name for it.)

          • Waynecro

            I don’t think they starve to death. They just keep going until they get stabbed in the brain or whatever. This scenario requires the suspension of disbelief.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Any sci-fi/horror requires massive suspension of disbelief.
            Also, I wonder if the Alexandria people know what Rick learned at the CDC in Atlanta(i.e. everyone’s already infected).

          • Waynecro

            I’m pretty sure he (or someone else from his group) explained it to them. I think it came up when the Wolf zombie attacked Deanna in the latest episode. Oh yeah, plus that Alexandrian who killed herself became a zombie, and a bunch of people saw it. They must know.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Those things occurred to me the moment I clicked “post”.

          • Waynecro

            I hate when that shit happens, which is all the time.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            This isn’t like Return Of The Living Dead. Walkers don’t care if they don’t eat for days or even weeks in this world. Also, every person left is already infected with the virus so, as soon as they die, they become a walker.

          • Waynecro

            I think I’d be more jazzed about cans of pudding and cookies and stuff.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’ll be excited about both. Drugs and food would be more valuable than gold or platinum.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            In the real future, clean water is going to be the most precious commodity, i imagine it will be then too

          • Waynecro

            I live in Southern California, and limited access to water is already a pretty significant problem. In that respect, this is probably a pretty shitty place to be if a zombie apocalypse breaks out. Of course, moderate weather would enable easier survival in the outdoors.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            In a real zombie apocalypse(unless we’re talking about True Undead), walkers would explode from the inside due to rot, bacteria, and maggots during the Summer, and pretty much freeze into immobility during the Winter. Once the National Guard and Armed Forces came into play, it would be over fairly quick.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, the whole zombie-apocalypse scenario is full of holes, but that’s what makes it fun, I guess.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That’s why the show really isn’t about the walkers, it’s about ordinary people coping with very extraordinary circumstances. It reminds me a lot of early Stephen King(who’s a huge fan of the show).

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, I was just trying to explain that to my brother. He doesn’t watch the show because he hates zombie shit, but the show really isn’t about zombies. Have you read any of the comics?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I haven’t because I don’t want the show spoiled. I know there have been significant differences but still.

          • Waynecro

            Some of the same events occur in both the comics and the show, but they involve different characters. It’s pretty cool watching the show and reading the books together to see those differences. Plus, the books are way more brutal than the show is.

      Welcome to The Brotherhood of the Beard.

      Its a blanket organization for facial hair enthusiasts. I will say, mustache is super hard to pull off, even with facial hair like mine.

      • Waynecro

        My brother is way into beard growing and grooming. He’s been pestering me to try growing my face pubes out for years. Now is a good time to give it a go (newly single, working at home, etc.). I’m hoping for a positive result, but I expect a disaster.

        • BEARD-SPLITTER

          Wtf is beard grooming

          • Waynecro

            Indeed. Well, my brother likes to rub funny-smelling shit in his beard and comb it. He achieves some pretty interesting shapes and configurations.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Someone tried to sell me on “dollar beard club”

          • Waynecro

            Their ads are great. In terms of marketing, it was pretty clever of them to form what is essentially an anti-Dollar Shave Club.

          • BEARD-SPLITTER

            Ill admit that the pitch was great.

            Im just not one for oils and shit

          • Waynecro

            I think the oils and all that shit are more for the hipster set these days. And perhaps for folks who want awesome beards but don’t want people at work complaining about their lack of grooming. I’m not doing shit to my mustache other than letting it grow. If it annoys me or makes me look like a pervert, I’ll just get rid of it.

          • CT-12

            Amen dude. I hate people who are super into their facial hair.

    I just got paid, which means I’m going to try to get out of work early to go down to HMV like I do every week to browse for any Scream Factory Blu Rays I have yet to collect.

    I actually had to buy a new player yesterday because the old one (a) required an update to continue playing discs and (b) hasn’t been supported with firmware updates since 2013. So anything new I get would be the test of whether or not it works.

    Or rather, would have been, if I hadn’t decided to watch The Town that Dreaded Sundown and Exterminators of the Year 3000 again, last night…

      The HMV near you is still open? The one where I bought my first Metallica shirt as a young one got closed.

      • JWEG

        Yup. It’s actually going strong, although technically isn’t at all the same as the ‘HMV’ that was here before the parent company started shutting down all their brick-and-mortar stores.

        HMV Canada is run by a company that just licensed the name and branding in order to slowly let the brand run its course and vanish, but then they started diversifying from the old business and wound up revitalizing it completely.

    Hey, nothing like popping in and seeing my digital mug splashed across a Flush It Friday. It’s a little inspiring.

    GOOD: It’s Friday at 4:34 pm. I’m gonna put together a playlist of classic second wave black metal material called Black Metal: The Classics (A Super Mutant Playlist). I’m gonna add the first Leviathan album and Silencer even though it came out ten or so years after. I’m about to play Fallout 4 until I go to sleep tonight, with a frozen pizza break and I may take a shower too.

            I’m definitely on the left of this chart, but I honestly believe that any positive claim asserted without evidence can be negatively dismissed without evidence.(i.e. I say “God exists”. You say “No”. You have the stronger claim because all you did was deny a claim made without supporting evidence. You’re not required to prove your denial is real)

            With respect, did you not see where I said “Abrahamic” and not just “Islam”( a religion that has plenty of white followers)? I have equal disdain for anyone who needs an Invisible Sky Daddy to get through their day.
            And yes, innocent people who happen to be Muslim will suffer because of this. Just because I think their(and any) religion is foolish doesn’t mean I want them to suffer.

          • I noticed. But we all know how folks assume religion based on skin color. It’s fine if you wanna be disdainful of those folks but remember a lot of them are regular posters here and you probably get along with them.

        Here is a problem I see with all of this. I see no outrage from all of the others from this specific group. Who are not the fringe extremists. I lost friends on 9/11 so I`m certainly a little biased. But if you were getting a bad name. Because of what others were doing and it affected you. Wouldn`t you say something about it? I`ve heard not a peep.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          Likewise I didn’t see much, if anything, in the way of outrage from Christians when the OKC bombing happened. In fact, I met many Christians who were more than happy to use the “No True Scotsman” fallacy when it came to people like Timothy McVeigh and Eric Rudolph, but not when it came to any violent acts committed by Islamic terrorists.

    There is, truly, some wonderful work produced here in the Toilet. Reading this short round-up has reminded me of that vividly. Bravo!

    The Good: Off to an all-day local-bands crust/core festival this afternoon. Should be fun wallowing among the brethren for the first time in a while (aside from At The Gates about a fortnight ago).

    The Bad: Currently trying to form a band, and it’s taking all year. As soon as you’ve got one person on board, another drops out due to lack of activity. Plus, wading through unsuitable candidates can be a drag.

    The Ugly: Back pain after drumming practice. More swimming and yoga required, apparently.

    • Lacertilian

      My friend convinced me to buy of these for back problems and while it may not be exactly what you need, it definitely helps with bad posture from back & neck problems.

    Bad: not a whole lot, I suppose. Weather’s shit, and I might be going to a concert surrounded by some shitty people in the near future, but neither are really that much of a big deal.

    Ugly: the situation in Paris. R.I.P. to all effected.

    • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

      Yeah, definitely a fucked up situation in Paris, and as far as I can tell, there’s probably more terrorists on the loose. It’s fucking impossible that only 3 people could’ve pulled off something on that scale, so there’s a big chance that Paris isn’t quite out of the woods yet. Ironically, in perhaps some of the worst timing ever, the guy from Great White was saying the concert fire in RI was “the 9/11 of rock and roll” the other day. Sadly, this is even worse.

    In 2003 people like me said that invading Iraq(a country that never attacked us) would lead to shit like what happened in Paris, Lebanon, and Baghdad today. France told us not to invade and were called cowards and surrender-monkeys for their trouble. Now they are paying the price for our mistakes.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        It has, but invading Iraq and destabilizing it made the situation far worse. Sadaam was scum, but at least he kept the “extremists” under control. We didn’t feel the need to do anything on that scale after Lebanon. In fact, Reagan responded by pulling out remaining Marines iirc.

        • BEARD-SPLITTER

          Sadaam Hussein was the whole pretense for the most recent incursion to iraq. It wasnt until afterwards that Bin Laden even became the target. Its all fuckin lies anyway, man.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Well, the most compelling reason we went in was because he wanted to start trading Iraqi oil in Euros instead of USD or Pounds.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            Bush wanting to quote “finish what dad started” was the overall pretense for the invasion. As bad as Saddam was, at least he had a grip on the tribal warfare going on in Iraq. Pretty much the same reason why no one’s tried assassinating Kim Jong Un or the other two Kims. Only an idiot would not foresee the chaos that would bring on.

        • more beer

          I was actually there. We didn`t pull anybody out except for the dead. The marines continued to stay for a pretty long time after that. I agree that we shouldn`t have invaded Iraq. But the terrorists would have just found another reason to forward their holy war.

      More likely than no, it’s that whole thing about the Mohammed cartoons that’s fueling them more than France’s politics or our involvement. They haven’t gotten anything quite like this before those cartoons, in the 15 years we’ve been in Iraq and Afghanistan. People being murdered at random over cartoons = welcome to the world of stone age religious nuts with assault rifles and next to no understanding of the religion they’re fighting for.

      The Quran chapter 2:190:, “Fight in the way of God
      against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! God
      loveth not aggressors.”

            It is a good start that is for sure. Being old this was actually heavy as hell when it came out. There wasn`t a whole lot of really heavy music back when I was in High school. Back then Sabbath was the heaviest shit out and my go to band.

          • Boss the “Philthy Animal” Ross

            Sabbath is still the heaviest shit out.

            But Eddie had a hand in extreme music’s evolution as well. Morbid Angel’s guitarist counts Eddie as his number one influence, and you could definitely tell once you look as his playing back on the first 2 or 3 MA Cd’s (sweeps, and finger tapping).

          • ┼yree

            Agreed. I think Van Halen took it to a hyper new level though.

          • Boss the “Philthy Animal” Ross

            They definitely were the next step in the grand scheme of things.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            I was watching the glam metal part of ‘Headbanger’s Journey’ a while back and according to Quiet Riot’s guitarist, guitarists literally asked NOT to headline for Van Halen back in the day, because they knew Eddie would blow them away. He quote “put the fear of God in every guitarist in the L.A. area”.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            Pentagram wiped the floor with Sabbath when it came to heaviness around that time.

            I certainly can complain if I’m not involved! I didn’t put them in there, and the 3rd party tends to be the far fringe side of the Dems if anything. If I didn’t put them in there, I can certainly complain about the mess others created.

            I don`t agree. If you don`t use your right to vote. To voice your displeasure. You don`t care enough to demand change. So why say anything. Not to mention you don`t have to leave your house to vote now. They wil mail you everything you need.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’ll get an absentee ballot for 2016, don’t feel like waiting for hours on end. The nice old ladies at the polling station will wonder if I’m okay though. They’re used to seeing me every election.

            I know.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            As a matter of conscience, refuse to put in people that I know will (1). never bother to deliver on ANY of their campaign promises, (2). That I know will continue to be bought and sold, while perpetuating the same problems. They come in, continue the exact same problems, and I helped put them in there? Nope, not happening.

            Show me a candidate that I can feel confident in, and I know has a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning, and I’ll be more than happy to vote.

          • more beer

            But do you think I feel any more confident in any of these assholes? You have to make your voice heard one way or another. Even it is the losing vote. You are telling the establishment FUCK YOU! I don`t believe in your bullshit! The more of us who do that the quicker things change.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            To me, that is EXACTLY giving in to the system.

          • more beer

            No it`s not. I was young and angry and thought that. By you acting like that is what the system wants, It fucks them up when they think you a part of it and you vote against them. We can`t necessarily win. But we can throw a wrench in their program!

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            Again, give me a candidate I’d actually have some confidence in, then I’ll vote. Otherwise, no dice!

          • more beer

            It`s not about the candidate> we are never getting what we want. It`s about Saying neither one of you assholes is my choice.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’ll agree to disagree with you on this one. I love Carlin(he is one of the Holy Trinity Of Standup after all) but he got a little too “get off my lawn” late in life.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            Eh, I think he got better as he got older and more crotchety. To each their own!

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Obviously I like curmudgeons, but I try to avoid the “get off my lawn” thing.

          • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

            No, Ben Carson would talk about introducing agriculture and Jeebus to them thur South Americans so that Jeebus will come back and save rock n roll n shit.

    Annnd while making a quick trip to the store I almost get ran over by some fuckwit who doesn’t understand what a crosswalk is.

    • Lacertilian
    • Hot Supreme Naked Chicken 2016

      That’s a major part of what I hate around here. They’ll put crossing lights on spots where it’s totally unneeded, yet skip out on putting them in the busiest part of the entire city (the mall area). And where there are signs, almost no drivers pay attention to them or the stop lights. I’ve been nearly run over more times than I can count!
      Hence why you should do what I do: skip crosswalks and simply jaywalk when possible.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        The crosswalk was the quickest distance between two points in this case. Besides I’ve been hit before and, because I had the right of way, I got $10,000 out of it.

    I try not to let my anger and disdain for religion influence my judgment but I just can’t do it. Oh well, this isn’t about me anyway. Best thing to do with this lame ass day is end it. Better Luck Tomorrow.

    Oh well, nothing to really vent about this week. I’ll go ahead and skip to the ugly then (Claudia Alende, aka The Brazilian Megan Fox). Hideous Brazilians at it again!

    Thank you, thank you, you’re far too kind /Jay-Zvoice

    Seriously though, being a part of this has been super cool. You guys are so good you make me want to learn how to write. I’ll keep making you run jibberish for a while though.

    Stay psychedelic space doom with a guy who sounds like Chris Cornell occasionally on the vocals forever.

    Bad: I had a bicycle accident which resulted in the removal of my right kneecap. I am alright now.
    Good: I have to stay in bed for the entire next week, so no school.
    Nothing ugly.

    • Lacertilian

      Woah, they removed the whole thing and you’re only off for a week?
      That’s rough! I’d mope around for at least a month sans-patella

      • Eliza

        Nothing broke and my kneecap is back in its place, so it’s not that serious. It sucks that I have to stay in bed and move my right leg as little as possible.
