Flush it Friday: Too Many Things Edition

We’ve had one work week, yes. What about second work week? You know, the 40 hours of stuff that you have to pack into the other two days.

Good: I went to New York for the first time last weekend, which was pretty neat. Got to see the Cubs get their asses kicked by the Mets, which was not fun at all, but 25 oz. beers made it worth it. Saw a bunch of touristy shit, ate some decent food, then got back on the train. That’s probably all the time I needed to spend in that crowded mess for one day anyway. Also, I get to see the Cubs play again tomorrow…

Bad: But it’s in Pittsburgh, so I’ll be driving way too many hours to get there (I have to go there for other reasons too). Driving through the Never Ending Land of Trees (Pennsylvania) is nice and pretty for the first hour, but then the next six are torture. Also, the weekend after this one is 100% booked with stuff to do, including going to Rhode Island. The weekend after that I get to see Intronaut and Moon Tooth, so that’s at least one thing that is fully exiting with little downside. Is this summer over yet? I need a vacation from my vacations.

Ugly: To make things worse, I am moving at the end of the month, so that’s one more thing to do. As someone who hates planning, having this many things on my mind is a massive cause of anxiety, regardless of if they are fun things or not. I really really like downtime.

Really though, this is some first-world complaining if I’ve ever heard it. What’s your deal?

    Good: Diamond Head is coming to the venue I go to.

    Bad: Nothing

    Ugly: How fucked society is

    • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

      Eh, society’s as bad as it’s ever been. We just know more about it now. Pretty sure no one’s wanting to go back to the violence and murder rates of the late 80’s and early 90’s.

    Good: I noticed that Katatonia is coming to my town in November and I am excite
    Bad: I’ve got the shits

    • “Tapir saying that Katatonia coming to his town in November” is a sentence that I think is a perfect sentence.

    • record swap 1v1 me

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        I will decline like the wimp I am!

    • Joaquin Stick

      I ate a piece of slightly raw chicken last night and have been awaiting the salmonella shits. It’s been almost 24 hours, I think I might have gotten away with it.

  • Driving through Pennsylvania is a bbbbbbbbbbbbburrfect experience!

    – Lonk, from Pennsylvania

    • Joaquin Stick

      I was hoping to get a shout out from you for that. Day made.

  • Waynecro

    Good: I’m going to eat a cupcake tonight.
    Bad: The cupcake package says “double chocolate,” but I caught a distinct whiff of mint when I was putting away the groceries last night.
    Ugly: Tasting toothpaste and chocolate when you expect to taste chocolate and chocolate.

    • Joaquin Stick

      Ain’t nothin’ wrong with a lil chocolate minty.

      • Waynecro

        With ice cream, maybe; not with cupcakes, though–especially when the package says nothing about mint. If the fuckers at the Vons bakery duped me into blowing my one baked good of the week on a minty abomination, I’m going to be so pissed.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          How was it?

          • Waynecro

            I won’t know until tonight. Cupcakes are an end-of-the-week postworkout food.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Keep us informed!

          • Waynecro

            If the cupcake is indeed mint, I shall be writing a stern complaint for the people at Vons, let me tell you. If the package had said the cupcake is mint, I’d have bought a big cookie instead.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Tell those bastards that when you get in office you’ll make sure to fully endorse the competitors that make real double chocolate muffins, not the fake ones their hocking.

          • Waynecro

            I don’t take my baked goods lightly, man. I seldom get to enjoy any food that tastes good. Bitches best not be trifling with my sweet tooth, yo.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Nobody messes with Waynecro’ sweet tooth.

            Or the toilet’s sweetooth0!

          • Waynecro

            Seriously. That shit’ll be a goddamned felony one day.

          • more beer

            Fuck fully endorse the competitor. He can send the health department in to shut them down. With so many violations they will never recover.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Ha, that is one way to do it!

          • more beer

            The best absolutely ruin them. City governments do shit like this all the time. Health codes, building codes other codes. If they want you gone they will find a way to get rid of you.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Yep, basically make it so difficult for you to do things you have no alternative but to call it quits.

          • more beer

            Yep. Government in action.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            bastards

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Only one baked good per week? I’m so sorry. I eat multiple packages of junk food a week and on occasion I eat multiple packages per day. I understand why I’m so fat now. You should have seen how unhealthy I was in 12th grade. I ate barely anything healthy to the point where it scared my friends.

          • Waynecro

            I used to be really unhealthy as well, but that was mostly because I drank an irresponsible amount of alcohol and never worked out. I miss eating junk whenever I feel like it, but I’m much happier with my physique and overall health now that I work out all the time and rarely eat anything that isn’t a lean protein. It’s never too late to improve yourself, man. I didn’t get my shit together until I was nearly 25.

  • Stanley

    Did you know that a 16oz proper beer at AT&T park costs $12?

    • Joaquin Stick

      I think that’s about what I paid for mine. 2 brats and 2 of those was like $45. RIP: My Wallet.

      • Stanley

        To go to a game here costs about 200 notes. $45 each for bleacher tickets. $20 each way in Uber (there’s always surge on). $72 on ale (3 each for me and the Mrs. Food – Maybe $25 total. Ridiculous.

        • Joaquin Stick

          Dang, I try not to eat and drink too much at the game, but the Mets stadium is in the middle of nowhere, so eating before wasn’t an option. I want to live in a town where no one gives a shit about sports and tickets are like $5. Too bad I’m not a White Sox fan.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

            Haven’t ever seen Sox tickets that low, but the Cubs tickets are about that much unless they’re somehow doing good.

          • Joaquin Stick

            That’s not true at all, even when they suck, tickets are never under $35. I’ve gone to so many Sox game for next to nothing, comparatively.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

            A few years back, I heard they were going for around $10. Those were probably nosebleed seats, though, and from what I read, the prices went down mostly because of poor attendance.

          • Joaquin Stick

            Poor attendance at Cubs games? Eh, I’m not buying it. I mean special promotions happen all the time, but I can’t really count those. You’re forgetting that Cubs fans don’t care about baseball and don’t really know when they suck lol.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

            Lol, and the Cubbies get all fired up whenever they win at least 2 out of every 10 games. *cues the annoying shrieks of Ronnie “Woo Woo” Wickers*

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang
    • CyberneticOrganism

      Save money and just drink out of the urinal. Same piss-to-beer ratio.

      • Stanley

        I did say proper beer. I don’t know what piss beer costs.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          $11.50

    • Owlswald

      If they have 12oz beers, I always go for that size. There was a video floating around which showed someone at Safeco Field pouring a 12oz beer into the “large” cup and it filled it to the brim. Liars.. the lot of ’em

      • Stanley

        Good point. It’s probably 4oz in an extra thick plastic cup with a convex bottom. Bastards!

        • Owlswald

          Speaking of which, have you seen those beer cups that are filled from the bottom? That blew my mind the first time.

          • Stanley

            Nope. But in a few business class lounges they have this machine that pours a beer for you. It tilts the glass and pours a perfect head (on shit lager of course).

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Beer head <<<<<<<<

          • Lacertilian

            wat

          • Stanley
          • Owlswald

            I don’t even want to know how skunky that beer must taste.

          • Stanley

            Sapporo or Kirin or some shit like that. If you’ve tasted one, you’ve tasted them all.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang
          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Shit lager <<<<<<<<<<<

        • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang
    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      And that is why i shy from beer at public events.

      • Stanley

        I’m an ISTJ. I require beer at public events.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Haha, Stan the Manley strikes again!

        • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

          Just bring your own alcohol, that’s what I always did. Plastic bottle of Canadian Reserve stuffed in your pants, and boom, just saved yourself a fistful of dollars.

  • JWEG

    Good: positive vibes spreading through #nicemetaltwitter & #metalbandcampgiftclub today.

    Bad: events for which the positive vibes were deemed necessary as an antidote.

    Ugly: live feeds for some of the hashtags initially used for ‘news’ being hijacked by the Koncerned Kontrarian Kabal to spew filth in much higher frequency.

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    Good: New Schoolboy Q
    Bad: Humidity
    Ugly: My sweaty ass crack.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    GOOD: I feel ya Joaquin, I’m also trying to move. Primarily because the T-X and I need a bit more space, but also at least partially because of our neighbors.

    BAD: Work is slow, which always sucks. Moving necessities taking away from recording time.

    UGLIEST: Hourly murder updates.

    • Joaquin Stick

      We’re like tripling our living space with this move, plus cutting like 30 minutes off my commute. I’ll be happy when it’s over. Same rent price too.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Trying to do the same, I need me a jam spot in the basement. I want to be the ABB house.

  • Owlswald

    Good: Short work week due to the holiday, caught Alice in Chains live on Wednesday (great show) and headed to friend’s house for Poker night later tonight. And that Dust Bolt record tho!
    Bad: Bathroom remodels are too f’n expensive.
    Ugly: Killings beget other killings which beget other killings. That is not going to fix the problem!

    • Old Man Doom

      Saw AiC a couple years ago and they were awesome. Cantrell’s guitar tone is fucking perfect

      • I am incredibly jealous of both of you.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        He is truly a master of the art

  • Bad: I feel physically destroyed by this work week. Just want 2 sleep.
    Good: Facebook creeping on animals
    Ugly: A small part of me is positive I’m going to die because some dildo is trying to catch a pokemon on his phone while he drives in to me.

  • I wish I had downtime all the time. Enjoy Moontooth, saw them play a couple months ago, they put on a good show.

    Good: No Robot Boss for three weeks
    Bad: Actually having to work five days next week
    Ugly: Dentist on Monday. Doing a deep cleaning so half my face will be numb from the novacaine several hours after

  • Good: Work week over. Finally.
    Bad: Already have some stupid plans over the weekend that I really, really don’t want to do. Also, what the fucking fuck is happening to our country right now? Fuck.
    Ugly: My girlfriend has been working late almost every day this week, leaving me to do all the cleaning, yardwork, etc. by myself at the house SHE bought. I hate this shit.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      Your ugly is me in a couple months, though i imagine i will be doing a lot of security measures voluntarily

  • nbm02ss

    GOOD: Job position interview next week. I’m told I have a really good chance at it. Throwing a UFC 200 party tomorrow.

    BAD: Interview not until Thursday. I’m sure I’ll be a bundle of anxiety until then.

    UGLY: People.

  • JWEG

    Side note: some of the most even, level-headed, non-judgmental and unopinionated reporting of events I saw yesterday and the two days before – even delving into the feelings and attitudes of communities involved without themselves turning opinion into ‘fact’ in the process – came yesterday from both CBC’s 24-hour news channel (Newsworld) and CTV’s usually slightly-more-biased equivalent.

    Even their social media presence remained professional and level, including on-air employees accounts exactly while nasty trolls tried repeatedly to provoke them.

    I’d never advocate a wholescale Canadian invasion. But maybe just the News Media…

    • Our media only cares about sensationalism and clicks. Real journalism in this country is long dead in the mainstream media.

    • more beer

      We won’t be getting any unbiased news reports in the states. It is all divide and conquer here. Which is exactly what they are doing.

    • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

      I welcome our Canadian overlords invading us, as long as we get some poutine and maple syrup.

      • JWEG

        Poutine could be provided by the Montreal division of the invasion force (I mean, if there were any such real or even planned entity *cough*). As for maple syrup: you do have Vermont.

        Granted, that would be the first place annexed. Mostly because it would probably go much more willingly than most. #ReverseManifestDestiny

      • more beer

        • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

          You can practically hear them sharpening their skates at the border, about to come down and steal our cheese!

  • Bad: living in Hellcaibo with this currency inflation.

    Good: family, friends, wife, next week I will complete the first part of my Thesis Quest.

    Ugly: our insurance coverage and the fear of getting sick in this shitty country with no medicines.

    Weird: I am hungy as fuck.

    Good: work week over, finally got last week’s paycheck, dinner with my parent’s earlier this week. Hopefully will go try out some amps tomorrow. Had friends over for the night before the 4th, good time. If I’m not crushingly lazy I will hopefully meet up with other toileters at the Grogus, Dischordia an friends show tonight.
    Bad: Work fells between nothing to do and mountains of videos, due to specific people not being there this week I was unable to get a lot of things done besides videos
    Ugly: Not much except it’s the season of swampass.
    good/bad: As I said I had people over, I bought a bunch of beer/ciders/etc for it, but a few people brought more their own and other things and now the bottom part of my fridge is filled with juice, soda, beers, ciders, malt sugary liquor things, sparkling wine, sake, and oranges. It’d be nice but I don’t have a lot of room for food

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Solid.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            Yessssssssssssss

        • Stanley

          Nice. I think I might do a thrash one next. It’ll probably have more color.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I don’t think I’ve seen your vest. Have you posted it here before?

        • Abradolf Lincler

          im also super interested in going to see Henry Rollins here before long

            its not the band

            Looks like he’ll be coming to my area as well. COOL

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            BBQ+Metal= damn fine day

            No need to worry about that man, enjoy yourself, I’ll get stuff together. Thanks though!

            + BEER!

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Can’t forget the BEER!

            Though, that almost goes without saying.

          • more beer

            Yes it does.

    • The Tetrachord of Archytas

      I definitely just came across my back patch for whenever I get around to crafting a vest

    • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

      Indeed it is a masterpiece! Cool threads, btw.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Thanks man!

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    Good: productive week. Also Beyond Creation and Zenith Passage are playing at some venue I’ve never heard of on Sunday (ps any of the few SoCal toileters planning on catching that?)

    Bad: I’m in a cushy new office…but it’s temporary so it’s mostly annoying cause nothing is set up nor will it be so I basically have to have shittáy workflow for a couple of days.

    Ugly: Social media reactions

  • JWEG

    Oh. Also. May be Bad, but I’m trying to be optimistic: I’m having some trouble ensuring that my updated passport application will be ready to go so that I’ll get it back in time to get to Migration Fest.

    And that’s saying nothing of getting Travel Medical Insurance considering my neurosurgery only 2 months ago (minus a few hours, literally). “Basic” medical coverage may be guaranteed by the State, but Extended Coverage issues are still handled by multinational-but-mostly-American insurance agencies.

    Essentially, if I can’t resolve both issues by this time next week, I’m probably going to be stuck home until the next big event. Which would suck because I was looking forward to (a) the bands (b) closer proximity to people I’ve got to ‘know’ via #metalbandcampgiftclub or TovH.

    Big Good though: that Lab Coordinator position I’ve been on about for the last few weeks just got posted; so at least I’ll have working on that this weekend to keep me thinking positive.

  • Dagon

    GOOD: Been at a quieter moment of my residency this month. Rotating in a very nice hospital with a smaller workload. And good food.

    BAD: Fucking Tinder.

    UGLY: I don’t know, cause I’m a MALE CREATURE OF BEAUTY.

    • Waynecro

      Forget Tinder, man. I just broke 10,000 with my Xbox Gamer Score, and I can hear impressed ladies lining up already. Then again, that might just be the sound of my remaining boners committing suicide because of their long-term unemployment.

      • Dagon

        Their employment is in your hands, Necro.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Yep, that made me laugh heartily

          I don’t believe in giving handouts. There’s probably a joke about work-release programs in there too.

          It probably would have been much higher by now, but I had a girlfriend until the end of last year. Too bad I can’t trade my awesome-boyfriend score for a higher Gamer Score. I think my sitting through so many awful romantic comedies is worth a few hundred points.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i think by the time i made the move to psn my gamer score was around 30k.

            so much better than relationship points

            I really only started playing modern games in, like, 2011 or something. I think I rage quit while I was playing Nintendo 64 and didn’t start playing again until Gears of War 3 came out.

            Do you ever feel like your life is a 90’s movie?

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            ^The question for next week’s Think Tank.

          • more beer

            That’s better than feeling like your life is a Lifetime movie.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

            Or a Lars Van Trier or Werner Herzog film.

          • more beer

            Nothing worse than a Lifetime movie.

  • Bad: It is hot.

    Good: My girl got a promotion. She is now, unbeknownst to her, my sugar momma.

    Ugly: My chops. Not pork chops. Not lamb chops. My drum chops. She got me an electronic drumset for our anniversary and . . . after a decade of not touching a kit my drum chops have atrophied to the point of pure suckness.

          well, you have no arms, so maybe immediately

            Ha ha. I’ve seen this guy live. Also, he is the singer/bassist with Pale Chalice and the brains behind Mastery. Not so obscure.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            oh, damn. i just didnt know this “band” then

            He’s cheating! He has arms. Richter can’t play guitar and drum.

    Good: I cleaned my laptop’s screen earlier this week. It’s amazing how shiny and new y’all look now.

    Bad: Now for the keyboard. That will be considerably harder, given I like to eat an orange over breakfast every day.

    Ugly: Nothin’ much.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      That is a solid list, my good man.

    I completely forgot to add this to my bad category but my non existent love life fucking sucks. I hate being single.

  • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

    The Good: FINALLY getting to move up to the much larger, much more luxurious front room, and start moving everything into there tomorrow, which shouldn’t take me any more than 45 minutes.
    The Bad: Nothing much, really.

    Geoff Tate at his most recent concert. I knew he’s fell off hard since, well, at least the last 10 or so years, but damn, this is pathetic:

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      You saw Geoff Tate? I’m so sorry.

      • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

        Haha no, I saw that pic in an article earlier. It’s 20 years too late for me to even be remotely interested in seeing him live.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          If he comes back to my area I’d love to witness the spectacle of how amazingly bad he is.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

            Just make sure he signs your glossy of Todd LaTorre. He loves that sorta thing.

    • more beer

      We need more of these Mosquitos. I know some peoples kids who need to be carried away like that!

        I hate mosquitoes. They love biting me.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I used to live in Houston. SO many damn mosquitoes

          • more beer

            JJD is right they were bad in New York. Here it’s really dry so they don’t like that as much.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            There’s so many. I can’t even go outside for a minute without getting bit.

          • more beer

            Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz says you don’t have to worry about West Nile Virus. It’s a conspiracy. In a few months you will be cold and the Mosquitos will be dead.

            Excellent.

            Nope. Us Chicagoans will simply put on our Starter jackets and go about our business. Ever wonder why Chicago was never mentioned in Day After Tomorrow?

            I do have the Rocky Mountains a half an hour away. There are all sorts of lakes and rivers in the mountains. But I live pretty close to downtown Denver. Everything has been built on and paved over. The closest river is probably 10 miles from my house.

          • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

            I’m right next to the ocean and river, so they get pretty bad over here. For some reason, they don’t bite me, though.

          Geoff Tater Tot and that sign. I attempted to watch footage from a festival he did a few days ago. He’s even worse now than he was on The Key. I can’t even defend him anymore and I’m one of the only fans of his last album.

    • more beer

      There were more people at the show I went to last week at a little DIY space.

      • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang

        They’re probably waiting for him to get off the stage so the magic show can begin.

  • Mother Shabubu

    Good: I discovered Batushka, Night Verses, Medico Peste, and got the new Virus album. Lots of good music. Got a new snare drum and I’m dusting off the rest of the kit. Gonna be interesting as I haven’t played since November in 2014. My project partner’s got his amped fixed and new shits’a brewin’. Also; got a Mike Cammalleri pro stock stick. Shit’s tight.

    Bad: How rusty I am at the gym. I’m not sure if it’s from the hours I hunch at a sharpening machine, but my hips have felt tight/sore lately. Maybe I’m over doing it at the gym. I’m spending too much money, even if it some of it was spent wisely. I re-wrote the premise of my story and like it better than the older one. I need to focus on one and go with it.

    Ugly: Obviously all the shootings and violence. Everyone loses, and nothing will change. People will continue to hate and fear each other like they always have. In dream analysis news, I had two really weird dreams last night. One where I flew to Alaska (although it didn’t look anything like actual Alaska.) and met this girl I used to talk with online. Of course it had to get into romantic shit. Reflecting back on the dream, it’s weird seeing how happy I was with that. It’d be like something completely out of character for non-dream realm me. It then quickly changed as like nine flying UFOs went into a formation overhead and an invasion took place. The mind wanders. The other was even weirder, because it was a part two, kind of a paralleling of dream one. Then it changed into a more grim ending where people were getting shot at. Probably shouldn’t read news before I go to bed.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Just now finding Batushka? And I thought GL was late…

      I’m interested to hear where this music project goes. If you ever record, share it!

      Those dreams are, well, interesting. I haven’t been able to vividly remember my dreams recently. i know I had them, but they go away quickly. Which kind of sucks, because I’m pretty sure something bad ass happened this morning.

      • Abradolf Lincler

        hint: boner

      • Mother Shabubu

        Wes posted it and I make a joke about it, then actually watched and fell in love.

        We already have one album done, we’re just hoping this one has much better sound quality. Or at least improved.

        I don’t know why, but I can remember some bits and pieces of dreams I’ve had pretty vividly. I always see them as important to remember I guess. That and I’ll use them in writing sometimes. Oneiric stuff has always intrigued me.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          *ahem

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          I’ve had my fair share of vivid dreams, but recently not so much. Probably because my sleep has been terrible… oh well

          • Mother Shabubu

            I have a weird memory selection. I remember things that some of my old friends don’t.

  • Eating Frisbees In Pyongyang
    • Abradolf Lincler
