Flush it Friday: Visas, Motorbikes, and Foreign Food

Buenas tardes, hermanos y hermanas. Welcome to our weekly tradition, Flush it Friday, the post the Toilet has traditionally set aside to air our grievances to each other in the spirit of mutual irritation and camaraderie. No holds barred, no judgment, only friendly hatred of the bullshit that exists in each of our lives and a quick upvote for those of us with particularly woeful issues.

The Good: For those of you who aren’t aware, I’ve been living in Bolivia for the past four months. My friends here were kind enough to extend their hand and allow me to live in the maid quarters in the backyard. I absolutely love living here; as my friend described it, I’m like “a fish in water.” However, and this may sound like a bad thing, but bear with me: the rules of Bolivian visas have recently changed, and I’m no longer able to renew my visa within the country. Thankfully I have many friends down here who are experienced with the Bolivian immigration system, which, like many systems across the world, is convoluted as fuck, and I was able to find this information out within an hour’s time (as opposed to the five hours the fine folks at Inmigración were trying to make me stay for). The silver lining in this (beyond skipping the line) is that I have to go to Argentina to renew my visa, which is a hell of a cool trip. We’re leaving on Saturday and taking a few days to bum around Argentina to drink cheap (and amazing) wine, see the sights, and to generally exist in a pretty amazing part of the world.

The Bad: I’ve been borrowing a dirtbike from a friend of mine. I know that sounds awesome, and it generally is, but the bike is in serious need of repairs. I’m more than happy to pay the money to repair it for my friend (since I’m the one using it), but none of the problems the bike is experiencing are my fault – all the issues that I’ve been experiencing were at a critical point long before I moved to South America. So I’m stuck with a fairly hefty bill to keep the bike in working order. This wouldn’t be a problem if my friend could organize to save his life. In Bolivia, you pick up your own parts for repairs. This keeps the cost of the entire operation down, but it does mean you need to have some form of vehicle to run around the city with. Since the only vehicle I have access to is the bike, I had to borrow a truck from a friend of mine. Thinking, like most folks would, that in one trip we could pick up all the parts for the bike, I informed my friend I would only need it for an hour. I soon discovered that we needed to head all over the city in lunch hour traffic, and some stores didn’t have the parts we needed, so multiple journeys across Santa Cruz de la Sierra were made. In order to pick up a tire, a tube, and a small sprocket, we took four hours of travel time. To make matters worse, the next day we needed to pick up bearings, and my friend’s truck wasn’t available. After hours of taxiing this morning to pick up two bearings (and no small taxi fee), I got a text from my friend to inform me that the mechanic also needs new spokes. Apparently changing a tire (and small repairs to the back wheel mechanics) takes three days in Bolivia.

The Ugly: While out and about yesterday to obtain bike parts, my friend and I picked up a cheap lunch (10Bs – roughly $1.45USD) of a steak, some rice, and a small salad. I immediately devoured my meal, at which point my friend questioned my decision to eat the salad, which, according to him, was unwashed. He claimed he’d lived here for 10 years and hadn’t once eaten a street salad for that reason. So the “ugly” today isn’t so much what I’ve shit out, but what I’m anticipating shitting out – and let me tell you, if my gas right now is any indication, the salad didn’t particularly agree with me. If I don’t comment by the time I come back from Argentina, assume I’m dead. I ask only for a small tribute on the blog: please make a post with lots of dumb jazz and poser metal, then pretend like you like everything for a day.

Well asshats, that’s been my week; now it’s your turn. Post your own Good, Bad, and Ugly in the comments below, and receive the coveted upvotes which will sooth the ache of the past week.

      How’d you post this 6 hours ago when the article just went up?

      • He’s the one that edited it most likely.

        • Max

          I should’ve assumed as much, but it did look strange: An article with pre-loaded comments.

          The next time I do one I’ll build in a raucous comment section of razor-sharp repartee and iconoclastic contrarianism.

          • Dubs

            I did one on Tyree’s battle jacket post too, mainly because I’ve been at a wokshop during the day the last few days.

          • El Jefe Ross

            I knew it!
            Is it okay if i refer to you as Doctor Gandalf from now on?

          • Dubs

            Yah, that’s cool with me.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Right on.

    • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

      Practicing pick up lines? ^^^^^

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain
  • GOOD: Normal boring shit like having the weekend off to fuck off.

    BAD: More normal boring shit like having to pay bills and having to pay to register my car again.

    UGLY: Having to go to the dentist for the first time in 9 years. That’s right… 9 years. Time to get fucked in the mouth.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Damn, hello dentures!

    • COAL ROLL

      root planing?

    • Good luck with that. I started swishing coconut oil in my mouth for 5-10 minutes a day before brushing. It’s supposed to help out with cavities, gums, whitening teeth, etc.

      • Waynecro

        Coconut oil is awesome.

    • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

      I havent been in to the dentist in at least that long (i only now have dental insurance again). The upside: perhaps youll get painkillers

      • True. I mean I don’t have any pain or anything, but I will I’m sure of it if I don’t get fixed up soon.

        • El Jefe Ross

          I had to go to the dentist, turns out i needed a root canal. I went in for the crown earlier this week and shatter the first one they put in my mouth. Second one is holding up just fine though.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I still have a dream of getting all metal teeth

          • El Jefe Ross

            I would’ve preferred a metal tooth.

            I have a piece of titanium stuck in my root now though. Thats kinda metal.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Youre basically a lightning rod now

          • El Jefe Ross

            It would be cool if i were struck and it resulted in getting super powers instead of death.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Your super power is to smell like well cooked bacon? Id take it

          • El Jefe Ross

            Ha, not quite what i was going for… but, yeah I’ll take it.

          • Waynecro

            I have a recurring dream in which I have to pull barbed wire out of my gums.

          • COAL ROLL

            mine is a clump of tangled saftey pins out my poop chute

          • Waynecro

            Goddamn.

          • COAL ROLL

            i only dream that when I’m not drinking. I drink a lot

          • Waynecro

            I would too if doing so would stave off such an awful dream.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Fuck!

          • Waynecro

            When I wake up, my teeth hurt. Stupid brain, dealing with stress and pain subconsciously while I sleep!

          • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair
          • shattered… like… glass!! m/

          • El Jefe Ross

            Bringing a Warbringer reference to the table? Good one, very nice.

          • Dang.

          • El Jefe Ross

            It was an odd sensation.

          • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

            That happened to my wisdom tooth a couple of years back.^^^^^ I was eating some almonds and CRRRRRRRRRRRRRACK, that motherfucker broke off into several cavity laden chunks. Oddly enough it didn’t hurt though.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Damn. Thats intense.

  • COAL ROLL

  • GOOD: Cannabis Corpse ticket showed up in the mail, starting next month rent is $20/month cheaper, no Snowpocalypse yet.
    BAD: It’s January. It’s cold. Money’s a little tight this month but nothing scary, just lame.
    UGLY: Tapirs, malandros, weebs.

    • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

      Supposed to see a little flurry Sat night/Sun morn. Fuck this winter.

      • Just a little rain here.

        • Waynecro

          I think it’s going to rain here (Southern California), which I like. But that will prevent me from doing yardwork. I’m not about to use an electric mower in the rain.

  • Good: Going to see the Best Unsigned Band in NY Hush tonight along with runner up Bleak. Also going to see The Hateful Eight tomorrow.
    Bad: No 70mm on The Hateful Eight. We had a cinema carrying it for a couple weeks but no longer.
    Ugly: Rafael Cruz – That dude looks like he was sculpted from a turd.

  • If you are planning on drinking tonight be sure to take a nice snow nap.

  • COAL ROLL

    Good: Just had annual company meeting. Your’s truly doubled sales from 2014 into 2015. Overall company revenue growth was 20%.

    Bad: where the fuck is my Batushka vinyl?

    Ugly: My wife told me I have to cut my monthly record budget

    • El Jefe Ross

      Good job man!

    • EsusMoose

      Nice, sad on the records, and I understand the pain of waiting for vinyl, I preordered a colored Meafheaven record and it has been pushed back since it’s release in early october. I’d cancel but they’d deduct the digital album cost from the original amount and at that point I’d still be out of the vinyl and would have to pay more to get it. So here I wait and bitch about it.

      • COAL ROLL

        I saw colored new bermudas last week at the record store?

        • EsusMoose

          Kings media is being a pain, today is suppose to be the latest shipdate, we’ll see, I got like baby puke green so maybe they couldn’t find enough children

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        Both my derpheaven vinyls are sexy anf colored, and gatefolds to boot. Itll be noce when they get therr

      • Bought some rekkids last night. A vengeful store employee moved all the DFHVN records from ‘metal’ to ‘pop’. I chuckled.

        • EsusMoose

          My local metal store has them in the punk section with some other not really metal things, I wanted to ask the owners opinion on it but decided to save face and slink out with my baroness and krallice albums.

  • tertius_decimus

    Have a wonderful trip, Guacamole! Argentina is hell of a country (as seen on photographs)! Return back with heavy load of good emotions!

    • I hope he can eat alfajores and dance tango 😀

      • tertius_decimus

        Astor Piazzolla ftw!

      • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

        At the same time!

    • COAL ROLL

      hehehe heavy loads

  • Good: nearly one month of marriage and it has been amazing. #metalbandcampgiftclub was good and some good fellas gave me great digital records. savings went good and we have good reserves for this shitty year. Good receive from my last articles on both comments and social media (thanks everyone!).

    Bad: Goverment had no signs to recover economy and believe in the same shitty system. Tiny weird stomach aches the entire week. Started to give classes and the taxi fees are eating my salary.

    Ugly: had to see the face and hear the awful voices of my shitty co-workers.

    • Also, I have my final opinion:

      The Somberlain>>>>>>>>>>>Storms of the Light’s Bane.

      • COAL ROLL

        I agree. S o t LB was a little bit erratic

      • That’s a tuff one Link. I like both a lot.

    • I read something today that a couple people got tossed out of Parliment and now they can’t pass any legislation. Sucks, people need to get their act together.

    • tertius_decimus

      I missed that post where you shared pre-wedding impressions. Sorry for being too late.

      Congratulations on your marriage! May your love be beside you till the end of days! Live long, be happy! You’re very nice person, truly.

  • JWEG

    Good: Related to today’s posts, I would like to reiterate my enjoyment of #metalbandcampgiftclub. Not necessarily because I got anything from it (at last check anyway), nor have I done it myself – though I will this weekend since I just got paid for my first few sessions as Lab Instructor – but rather because it allowed me to (a) (potentially) expand my own wishlist by seeing what others were gifting, (b) make several new Twitter and bandcamp connections, and (c) find something other than Indie Horror and Comics to Tweet about as frequently.

    Also good: as mentioned, I got paid for work done.

    Bad: Very little that won’t be quietly overcome by next week.

    Ugly: Now, I want to preface this by pointing out that I’m not normally one to poke fun at unfit (or unwell) individuals, as I’ve been both in the past – but there’s a lady sitting behind me in this here coffee shop who’s literally two seats wide (she’s sitting on two) and nobody has bothered to tell her that her inappropriately-thin yoga pants have torn so thoroughly her entire left ass cheek is hanging out (and down).

    Mind you, I won’t be that person either…

    • El Jefe Ross

      Hell yeah.
      Right on.
      Ugh.

    • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

      ….

  • CyberneticOrganism

    GOOD: Weekends. Music. Travel plans. Iceland.

    BAD: Work. Burning desire to buy unnecessary music gear.

    UGLY: Bone Tomahawk. Damn.

    http://tinyurl.com/h4wuq3l

    • El Jefe Ross

      The best: Listening to music on the weekend of your planned travel to Iceland.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        It will be, el jefe. It will be.

    • The burning desire to by music equipment and records is inevitable.

    • COAL ROLL

      “brad from Sweetwater” called me at my office today looking for the money I usually spend with him every month that I’ve been slowly shifting to records

      • CyberneticOrganism

        That’s funny. “Hey buddy, you uh, still need some stuff? I can help ya out if you have any questions! It’s Brad by the way.”

        • COAL ROLL

          I am a good enuf customer for them that I have a personal rep, who has my office phone number.

    • Iceland?
      Do elaborate.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Planning to get there (maybe) this year. Do some hiking, photography, sit in a hot spring, fight a volcano, eat fermented shark, etc.

        • Do it. Sacrifice all financial stability/human relationships in order to get there.
          The only thing you will regret is that you were not born there . . .

  • Salvador Dalí Lama

    Good: My last two weeks could be summarized by saying Star Wars: The Force Awakens and David Bowie’s “Blackstar”.

    Bad: Even though I have “Low” and “Heroes”, I only really got into Bowie through his “Blackstar” video, but I feel incredibly sad about his death. Such a unique and genius musician and person. Feels like the color of the world just grayed up a bit more.

    Ugly: Does anyone else feel cheapened when you see part of a character in a movie or some shit that is a screaming reflection of parts of you? As in it makes you feel less genuine even if it’s a “cool” character? That.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      I’m a long time Bowie fan and I feel Blackstar may be his best album.

      • Lacertilian

        Wait for the inevitable posthumous releases.

      • no way, Greatest Hits easy

      • Salvador Dalí Lama

        It’s an incredible album. Even if he didn’t die, I think it’s my favorite of the ones I’ve heard so far.

        I’ve recently been getting into “Outside” and “Earthling”.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Wow hey now, ghat is one stromg statement.
        Also, not wrong.

      • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

        Outside’s still my favorite of his, but Blackstar is certainly a heavyweight contender in an already solid as fuck catalog.

  • Good: i don’t seem to miss booze anymore. and i’ve noticed changes in my own personality (for the better!)
    Bad: without booze i’ll never be able to ask a girl out
    Beautiful: i don’t give a fuck!!! heavy metal, kitties, and Toilet Time: these are the things that truly matter in life

    • COAL ROLL

      glad to hear your got your priorities straightened out

      • Scrimm
      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        My biggest fear is that one day I’ll become one of those ‘don’t talk to me about women’ types who sits at the bar complaining about their girlfriend

    • Waynecro

      Congrats, man! I’m glad you’re benefiting from that life change. No good can come from asking out women anyway.

      • how’s the most flushed-up living arrangement going, my fellow weak-pancreas bro?

        • Waynecro

          I didn’t even think misery like this was possible.

          • oh no. ain’t nobody got time for that! find a new girl, makes things super awkward.

          • Waynecro

            Thanks, but I don’t want to find a new girl. I’m just focusing on my training. I intend to smother these unnecessary emotions with muscles.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Muscles > feels

          • Waynecro

            To become a musclebound stoic. This is the path.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            My path is to re-imagine the self titled album by Christopher Cross. I’m planning on starting it after I finish my album Kohoutek.

    • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

      Just try asking dudes out

      • “bro you wanna smoke weed, play guitar hero, and get Sicilian style pizza?”
        “of course i do, i’m a guy!”

        • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

          Its almost a win win. Almost.

          • more beer

            No not really.

        • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

          “Broooooooooooo! You wanna, you know…….. pal around. get crazy?”

        • Lacertilian

          Average games>>>>>>>Guitar Hero

          • EsusMoose

            There was a deal this week where the new guitar hero with controller was only 50 usd, I had to resist buying it

          • Lacertilian

            I don’t understand, you play bass right?
            Buy a new pedal instead.

          • EsusMoose

            I’m waiting to invest in pedals as I want a small colony of them but really it’d just be used as a stress distracting tool and 50 is not enough for a pedal. More like 100

          • EsusMoose

            Also I play guitar but I find enjoyment producing music anyway I can so I might steal a child’s toy if it makes sound. What are they gonna do? Corgi would ruin their day

          • El Jefe Ross

            The Lizard is wise.

            Edit: this is on the wrong comment. It was meant for the “buy a new pedal”

    • Salvador Dalí Lama

      When I used to have hope that I wasn’t going to die cold, angry, and alone, I found that whenever I tried to ask a girl out/date a girl, it failed worse than the Challenger shuttle. The not-give-a-shit attitude/I have no chance attitude worked. The minute I went back to trying, it became doomed.

      • more beer

        Just tell them. You are going to buy me drinks, then take me home and fuck me.

        • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

          This works

          • more beer

            I know.

        • This has worked 100% of the one times I’ve tried it: “Hey, come back to my place. But you gotta drive cuz I’m way too drunk.”

          • more beer

            As long as you are a dick. You can pretty much have most women.

          • Waynecro

            You and Joe should teach a course.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Sadly this is true.

          • but that is rando-baiting :/

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It is. I don’t agree with this or the idea of the one night stand. I’d at least like to get to know the woman before I fuck them. That’s what I did when it came to my prom date who I no longer speak to. We were friends for a while and then I asked her to prom. She said yes. After prom we did it. We haven’t been on speaking terms since last year. I hope to make amends one day but that might never happen.

          • Dude, you are a rando-banger. How could you!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I knew her for two years beforehand.

          • /nevermind

            You are totally good then!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I might be able to make amends with her. It’s going to be hard but I will succeed

        • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

          Then tell them to make you a sandwich with no crust. Chicks love guys who chain them to the kitchen Black Snake Moan style.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            KJU plz! You can’t chain people to things!

          • more beer

            Fuck yes. I can’t believe so any here don’t know the ways of the world.

          • Skulldong Skroinkly Squirtin

            I know. Sometimes I show chicks my magic nose goblins, show chicks my cataloged collection of armpit hair, or start air guitaring, and hot action happens.

        • Salvador Dalí Lama

          See the problem with this is I’m not fun (I.E. don’t drink, have own home). So…

          • more beer

            You don’t have to be fun. Make them think you are in charge!

    • Chin up McNulty, your lady may not come to you right away, but you will find someone.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      You don’t need a woman.

      • i’ll never find one who enjoys Uriah Heep as much as i do.
        hold me JJD

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Uriah Heep is the best.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I gave up on dating a while back. I’m not planning on going back to that any time soon

  • COAL ROLL

    Thinking about busting the new budget –

    https://westernmass.craigslist.org/clt/5388536808.html

  • Lacertilian

    Good: Bought some new music, awaiting new Nađra.
    Bad: A little hungover.
    Ugly: Decided to spend Saturday morning doing a clean-up of our ugly house with Mrs Lizard. Not feeling it.

  • EsusMoose

    Good: finally succeed in beating the bosses I was stuck on in Bloodbourne, bought some new music, will probably go on a buying binge later as well, Packers advanced.

    Bad: New Semester starts Tuesday and I have yet to finalize my schedule but it’s my final semester so that’s fine. Vikings found the worst way to lose to the shithawks. My ragefits when I die in bloodbourne.

    Ugly: Pace’s hot salsa, something in it gives me awful gas and some terrible shits. I like it but the day after affairs is making it hard to eat it.

    Have a good weekend everyone, also here’s a post/prog/indie shit I’ve been listening to a lot lately https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBskH2KkD-o

    • Waynecro

      AGENT FRESCO!!!

      • EsusMoose

        Yeah popped up on my spotify weekly recommendation playlist and I loved this track and it’s album. Would have to try their latest album again as nothing clicked the first time around

        • Waynecro

          “Howls,” “See Hell,” “The Autumn Red,” “Dark Water,” and “Pyre” are solid Destrier jams.

          • EsusMoose

            Thanks, just queued them up!

          • Waynecro

            Hope you dig ’em!

          • EsusMoose

            Like all the tracks, just about finishing up pyre. Vocalist is reminding of leprous’ singer

          • Waynecro

            I can hear some similarities as well. I like both bands.

          • EsusMoose

            Same, I’m probably gonna finally get around to buying the Congregation tonight but I’m gonna see how much Tall Poppy Syndrome is. and sold out or more expensive than i want to pay right now

          • Waynecro

            That’s a tough call. They’re both killer albums.

    • salsa >>>>>>>>>>>

      • EsusMoose

        It’s so good and yet pretty sure it caused a shart to occur so it’s definitely on the cutting block

      • JWEG

        One of my former classmates is a dancer (not ‘exotic’, obv) and yet somehow every time she posts about ‘salsa meets’ on Facebook my mind goes straight to that edible kind instead of the most likely reference.

    • El Jefe Ross

      you need to get better quality salsa, Pace is not the best.

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        Ie homemade

        • El Jefe Ross

          That is the BEST quality.
          I’m willing to bet you make a pretty mean salsa.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I used to have to make it at the resaurant, but ive altered it for heat purposes

          • El Jefe Ross

            Nice. Recipe by chance? If you dont mind?
            I can give you my email…

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Its pretty simple, and i dont use recipes. Tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro, salt, pepper, amd you can add some accoutrements if you want. Dice all and serve cold, or combine and boil then cool it

          • El Jefe Ross

            Ha, right on! I was expecting some crazy intricate steps with precise measurements and the like. Nope, straightforward and simple. Nice!

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            My style is more like youre probably gonna have to attempt it more than once and see what ratios work best for you, i tend to use 1 bell pepper, 1 onion, maybe two hotter peppers and a little cayenne powder oh, and a little cumin

          • El Jefe Ross

            I like a lot of cumin in any kind of salsa/mexican dip i make. It’s one of my favorite spices.

      • EsusMoose

        I’m lazy and kinda new to the salsa game so I don’t know what brands are good

        • El Jefe Ross

          Try to find locally made salsas. they usually use fresher and better quality ingredients do to smaller batch sizes.

          • EsusMoose

            I’ll look into it

  • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

    The Good: pretty chill week, as usual. Going out on a tendies run in a few.

    http://media4.popsugar-assets.com/files/2015/04/07/175/n/1922398/fc5fb0802fdb17c8_BqLwnT3lSXSFx5XlOOrE_tumblr_n6x1u6nnMh1qz8x31oz79h3M.xxxlarge/i/Gross-Funny-Snack-Spoof.gif

    The Bad: The La Casa Al Mare shirt never arrived, over a month later. Paypal said I got the refund sent back to my card, but not seeing it on my bank balance or under transactions. Not all too familiar with Paypal since I rarely ever use it, but does the refund take a day or two?

    The Ugly: Scarlett Johansson humping stuff. Hideous I tells ya!

    • If you ever started your own blog I’d never be able to view it at work.

      • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

        I had one on LiveJournal ages ago, but stopped working on it almost 2 years ago.

    • Waynecro

      That woman is clearly very, very talented.

      • more beer

        Yes she is.

  • Lacertilian

    Also Guac, your vehicle issues sound like common-place in South America, a mate travelled there for 6 months and has a few remarkably similar stories.

  • tertius_decimus

    Good: this 35-year masterpiece.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sqc_m6T-PB8

    Bad: my girlfriend kept making me hurt for 3 months. I’ve attempted many ways to save our relationship, but she was too mental, quite a damned wretch. Today we tore apart completely. It fucking hurts. I’ve lost the words to express what’s inside me now.

    Ugly: me, whining about every failure.

  • Waynecro

    Good: I just got a random text message from a stranger who discovered that I am somehow entitled to a rather large financial portfolio. All I have to do is email him my financial information. I’m gonna be rich!
    Bad: I had to spend, like, $90 bucks on a new video game and season pass because the bros I play Xbox with on Tuesdays decided to switch games. We’re all very into Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege now, apparently–at least until Tom Clancy’s The Division comes out.
    Ugly: My new exercise routine is tough as shit. I may have blacked out momentarily during last night’s lifting session. On the plus side, this just means I need to up my carb intake.

    • I don’t wanna sound weird or nothin’ but… just how swole ARE you? Inquiring minds wanna know.

      • CyberneticOrganism
        • I remember the comments on this a long time ago being something about him killing the women he fingers because he’s so got-damn swole.

          • Arhys

            I saw that kind of comment on a Fleshgod Apocalypse video about their drummer.

          • Waynecro

            I’m seeing Fleshgod in February. So pumped!

        • Dat vascularity tho.

        • EsusMoose

          toiletconfession: I was introduced to nile because someone posted a video of his

          • Were you disappointed when you found out that Karl Sanders isn’t hella yoked?

          • EsusMoose

            He’s basically the opposite of yoked af. This was in the early days of my metal interest before I learned 70% of metal artists are overweight men

        • Waynecro

          I’m humbled by that dude’s vascularity.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I fprget his name but he is very swole, and not a terrible guitar player

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        I would like to know

        • Waynecro

          I can’t even bench 300 pounds yet, so I couldn’t be very swole.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Im betting woth enuff huffing and puffing and a decent spotter id b brave enuff to get one rep in.

          • Waynecro

            If I had a spotter, I might try it myself–though I’m pretty sure I’d fail. I suspect I could go 10 to 15 pounds heavier than I’ve gone so far, but I’m not about to try it alone.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Im still doing a lot of dumbell work (80lbs/each) for chest because im scared to bb bench

          • Waynecro

            I’m using a lot of dumbbell work in between military presses to improve my shoulders.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Arnold presses, upright bb rows, dips? Esp lateral raises (i do about 3 diff kinds)

          • Waynecro

            Lateral and front raises in between military-press sets, mostly. I’m trying to make my shoulders rounder than they are. I want to add weighted dips, but I have no equipment for dips yet.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Milk crates or cement blocks would suffice

            Arnold presses hit all three heads greatly

          • Waynecro

            That’s good thinking, dude. I had planned to get a full cage with a dip station, but I may just stack up some blocks. I do really like the safety/stability of a cage, though–especially because I always lift alone. Plus, a cage would have a pull-up station as well. I ruined a door frame using one of those detachable pull-up bars.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Ive ruined several. My next step is to buy a rack for squats as squatting now is super dangerous (having to press and lower weight in the 200s just to do squats). Im also going to be buying a new lat pull

            Crazy money for equip tho, as you well know

          • Waynecro

            I had a similar problem with squats. For a long time, I had no space for a rack, so I was just wearing a weighted vest and holding a bunch of weight to squat. When I moved into a place with more space, I bought the Valor Fitness BD-9 Power Squat Stand, which is easy to reconfigure when necessary and takes up minimal space. It was less than $170 new. I’ve found a lot of good gear and lots of plates for cheap on Craigslist, though I had to venture into some pretty sketchy neighborhoods to pick them up. One twitchy guy was selling plates out of his meth lab, er, I mean, trailer.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            All for dem gains bro

          • Waynecro

            Seriously, man. I’ll do nearly whatever it takes. Nothing illegal, though. I’m lifting six nights a week now.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Im on 2 days on/1 day off. I cant do 6 days

          • Waynecro

            It’s really brutal and pretty unpleasant, but I need it right now.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Recovery almost as important as the workout man

          • Waynecro

            The muscle groups alternate, so I’m not overworking anything. I take the appropriate supplements, eat right, and sleep enough, so I think I’ll be good. If performance and results suffer, I’ll switch things up a bit; however, I think this plan is pretty good. I spent a lot of time putting it together–especially because I have to account for issues relating to diabetes.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            What works for everybody is different, for sure

          • Waynecro

            For sure. I tried to plan out this routine on the basis of what I know I’m capable of while still pushing myself to do stuff I didn’t think I could do. It would be a lot easier if I didn’t have to worry about blood-sugar levels too. I can’t be passing out by myself in the garage.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Yeah Thats be no good

          • Waynecro

            It’s a fucking drag. One minute you’re fine, the next you’re on the floor, shaking like a junkie. I have to keep sugary shit all over the house, because there have been times when I woke up with blood sugar so low that I couldn’t walk down the stairs safely to get something from the kitchen. On the plus side, I like eating candy.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            The only sweets i eat are chocolate milk and a cookie before bed and if theres chocolate in my protein bars

          • Waynecro

            I love both those things. Cookies with M&Ms in them are awesome. One of my protein powders is chocolate, but it tastes more like a barnyard smells.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I Was about to say, will they EVER make a powder that tastes decent?

          • Waynecro

            Seriously, man. Though I do know of a few that taste pretty good. BioTrust has some tasty powders, but they have more carbs than I want (and they’re expensive). I guess it’s hard to make something taste good without adding a bunch of sugar and chemicals and jacking up the price.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            My creatine supp isnt bad but its not particularly good.

          • Waynecro

            I just use plain creatine mono, which doesn’t really have much flavor. TrueNutrition’s regular whey comes in some really decent flavors, but, of course, all the hydrolyzed proteins taste awful. I’m pretty used to them now, but they were hard to keep down at first.

      • Waynecro

        Not nearly swole enough, man. But I’m working really, really hard to get there.

      • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair
    • Rainbow Six Siege is one of the best games I’ve played in a loooong time. I’ve been playing it almost every night the past couple weeks with some of my good friends and some random dudes we met while playing it.

      • Waynecro

        That’s good to know. I’m a bit hesitant to play. I’m not all that great at video games, and I don’t want to be the guy making the team lose every round. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is more my speed–especially now that a big-ass wrench is a melee weapon. It makes such a satisfying thump.

            I don’t know we will hit a liquor store once I pick him up. He is a truck driver So he will park his rig and we will go from there. Going out to one of the metal bars is also an option.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Hell yeah.

            I’ll be enjoying these tonight.

          • more beer

            This is the foreign extra stout one, i enjoy it thoroughly.

        It was.

          I ain’t got that kinda dolla.

      • I guess it’s good to keep some perspective, but that shouldn’t mean that you nullify your own feelings.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          Yeah but when I bring up my own feelings I usually get slapped.

      • CT-12

        Well in that context, yeah, anything is going to sound like peaches compared to murder, but that’s like saying racism in the U.S. died because we have a black president. Well yeah, compared to fucking slavery, it would seem so, but we know that’s not the case. You’re justified in feeling upset man, no need to flagellate yourself over just having genuine emotive responses to things that matter to you. Chin up homie.

        • Yep, it’s like saying you have no right to be happy because someone out there has it better than you.

    • 2016 already has something great going for it: debut WoL release!!

      • Scrimm

        I hope so. It’s been 2 months since we’ve worked on it, I’m dying to get it finished. Should be back to it in a couple weeks

  • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair
    • EsusMoose

      I have a hard time being excited mostly because found footage films have mostly (thankfully) died and unless they go like a normal kaiju film style plot it’s kinda hard to go back into a film that lived off not showing the monster

      • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

        I can’t stand found footage films, but Cloverfield was an exception. I think the sequel is necessary, since there was A LOT left unexplained in the first film.

    • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

      You are looking forward to cloverfield 2? Your taste in movies has been seriously called into question lately

      • EsusMoose

        Try the trailer.

        • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

          If its jj failbrams i have literally 0 interest

          • EsusMoose

            But John Goodman!

        • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

          It does look more like a full blown film this time around, instead of the shaky found footage deal. And knowing that it’s JJ Abrams, you know it’s gonna be lens flare overload!

      • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

        Indeed I have! I loved the first one, probably the only found footage movie I’ve ever liked.

    The Good: TJ Dillashaw and Dominic Cruz are about to put on a technical clinic this weekend, and it’s free on TV.
    The Bad: This place still can’t figure out if it wants to snow or rain
    The Ugly: Totaled my beloved Honda yesterday, an asshole pulled out in front of us on a highway. Car’s destroyed but I did what I could to avoid making the impact worse, and ditched it instead. So there’s that.

    • El Jefe Ross

      Sorry to hear about the car man.

        I’ve been a racing driver since I was 12, I’m used to getting into wrecks.
        They don’t really phase me, and the skill helps avoid them or reduce
        the severity…. BUT, my wife is still recovering from a severe
        concussion she suffered in a rear-ending (while we sat at a light)
        almost 2 years ago… So I was completely shit-fucked terrified for her,
        as her head is now as fragile as a Faberge egg. Had I been alone in
        the car the situation wouldn’t have bothered me nearly as much.

          The album this song came off of beat The Wall for the Album Of The Year at the Grammys.

          • El Jefe Ross

            The grammys have a reputation of getting shit wrong.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            They gave Toto IV a Grammy though. I love that album! It’s on my list of Greatest Soft Rock Albums Ever with Year Of The Cat by Al Stewart, Christopher Cross, Firefall’s self titled, Worlds Away by Pablo Cruise, Pleasure and Pain by Dr Hook and my personal favorite Gary Wright’s The Dream Weaver.

          • Soft, synonymous with flaccid.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Not even Toto XIV is as good and that’s an amazingly proggy album. I enjoy it greatly.

          • Troll game on fleek.

            I also consider my album The Final Recordings a classic album. Here’s a link:

            Yes.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Cool man, i will check it out.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            You should. I must warn you, it’s really dark shit. It was made after I had a falling out with a girl I used to be friends with.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Cool man, i will check it out.

          • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

            All I’m hearing is tape manipulations. Sounds something more akin to old school industrial tape manipulations, a la EBN (Emergency Broadcast Network).

          • Al Stewart, yes. The rest? FLUSH.

          • XXXX Atomic Tongue Hair

            Curious if you’ve ever heard Fergie Fredrickson’s (Toto’s former singer) final album. Sooooooooooooo so good!

            I didnt know he made a final album.

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            ‘Any Given Moment’ was his last one before he passed (liver cancer and hep C). Amazing album, and vastly underrated!

          • I would sooner gnaw my fingers off than allow them to play this.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Maybe I’ll do a reimagining of the album and perform it in full.

          • To an empty club…

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m sure my family would show up except for my sister. She hates all the music I like.

            At a bingo hall, perhaps? The lobby of a retirement home?

          • I’m more than twice your age and even I, shit even my mom, think this is music for boring old people. Even the boring old people I know listen to more exciting music than this.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It’s good music for relaxing.

            I wonder what would happen if I performed the album in full live. There’s a band called Yacht Rock Revue that performs this stuff ironically. Maybe they’d be amused. They sell out pretty big theaters and clubs.

            I think JJD has progeria or something.

            He’s a one hit wonder just like a lot of them. He’s not a good one though.

    As a 40th Celebration celebration of Al Stewart’s immortal album Year Of The Cat here’s my favorite version of the title track. Goddamn the repeating riff in this is so catchy.

          • Correct sir.

          • HOT DAMN.

            On topic: I acquired a 223 Remington from my father in law today for coyote popping. Hopefully I get a chance to use it soon.

          • GL?

          • El Jefe Ross

            That be him.

          • Ah, I thought so.

          • I need to change my avatar back lol

            Hey! I did a 4 mile run yesterday. Getting back in it!

          • Nice dude! I’ve cut back on my running this week and focused more on cycling. Shit was too fucking cold to run in a couple of those days early this week. Like negative degrees! Inside at least I can crank up the metal while I sweat my ass off on the stationary.

            You’re a hell of a lot more driven than I am! I walk about 2 miles to the grocery and drag my groceries back another 2 miles, 3-4 times a week. I think that’s about all that keeps me anywhere near to in shape.

          • Lean and mean. Nice!

            I actually found that when i was running 5/6 marathons a year, that I was a much better runner/cycler when I was a little heavier. I.e 7 to 10 pounds heavier. It just fit me better…. But…. that was 30lbs ago lol

          • It was probably all muscle weight though which is a good thing.

          • Yeah… better to have a little fat than none.

            Anxious to run tomorrow…. My times are a bit slow. 8:30/miles. I am pretty pumped by all of it though!

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Be proud, i couldnt run an 8:30 mile if i tried.

            Id probably croak

          • I did a 5:50 mile one time! but that was 10 years ago!

            fuck!

            I think were close to the same age.

            Im going to start runnin more this year, whereas my old jobs kept my cardio up, and im not smoking anymore. Check back with me about my mile time at EOTY 2016

          • How about I check back with you in a week?

            Imma hold you accountable now. Boom!

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I quit smoking 15 days ago. This isnt fair lol

          • DO IT.

          • Dubs

            Ran a 5:10 in high school.

          • Yeah but was a hawk chasing you? Cause if so, that is unfair! haha

            GL

          • Hey, you should iron that white back drop you have on your pictures. It is all creased and such!

          • Yeah, I know. Problem is I don’t have an Iron.

          • Maybe tumble it in the dryer?

          • Haha, I’ll try it out here.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Right on.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            223 is a great round

          • I don’t have much experience…. I am a shotgun guy. Those fuckers keep the deer pushed out of our bottom, so I am itching to kill bitch. lolz

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I don’t use guns because I don’t hunt. I don’t ever plan on using a gun.

          • That is OK, man. Not everyone has a use for one. Or two, or three, or even six! lol

          • If you owned a farm and had to worry about coyotes fucking with your livestock, you wouldn’t have much choice in the matter. It’s another reason I’m happy to stick with city life.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    In cool news, I found a really neato painting at work. Some kind of evil wizard or possibly goblin sitting inside a giant animal skull on a cliff blowing bubbles with a pipe. In one bubble is a serene lady floating up into light through a gap in clouds, but underneath is a popped bubble and a poor guy plummeting towards a swirling abyss. The painting is unidentified save for a (possibly not the real) name written underneath and a name and address on the back leading me to believe it may be a work by an obscure early 20th century fellow called Richard Tennant Cooper whose small note comes from slightly similar phantasmagorical fare. One of our temps is a former art gallery owner and she’s contacted an auctioneer she knows to see if they have any info. We’re currently waiting to hear back. It’s a fun mystery. Also in cool news, I got talking to a girl on okcupid and then on Facebook a couple of weeks ago, and it turned out that we were actually on the same undergraduate course but never talked or even noticed each other, and also that in general as people we have a lot in common. She’s super fun to chat to. Good times. And I’m looking forward to going to The Hateful Eight tomorrow.

    In less cool, actually more absurd news, also on okcupid and then Facebook, I’ve been chatting with some frequency and occasional length to another very nice girl, but after twigging that we are not best suited to each other have been having only limited success in convincing her that our romantic prospects are not great. I.e. I would bug the fuck out of her without meaning to just because I’m a scatterbrain. It sucks because I do like her, but sometimes you just know when things are not meant to be…

    • El Jefe Ross

      Can you share a picture of the painting?

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        Indeed

            Whoaaa would own/10

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            I’m guessing it was either used as an illustration or cover of one of our books back in the day, but unfortunately our historical record keeping of such things is obscure/non existent.

          • El Jefe Ross

            What is it you do? If you dont mind me asking. Feel free to be as vague as possible.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            Librarian/archivist for a publishing company. One of the real global biggies. We have a lot of fun stuff. But its a small staff, so I’m the appointed art guy for a few hours each week.

          • El Jefe Ross

            That sounds really cool and exciting. I think i would enjoy that.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            It’s more or less a perfect job. Even the stuff that can be a bit of a pain in the arse like, say, finding particular sets of agreements in multiple overstuffed contracts files for popular authors, potentially taking several hours to sort and assemble, brain melting in the process, is still often really interesting. All the negotiations, spats, fuck ups, figuring out which writers are cool folk from their correspondence and general dealings, all the background stuff, its neat.

          • El Jefe Ross

            That’s awesome! I’m glad you can enjoy it.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            There’s occasional sadness though, like finding paintings possibly irreparably damaged due to the incompetent shitbag fortunately before my time old manager.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Damn, those days must really suck. I can’t imagjne finding damaged pieces of art and knowing it was a lack of care like that.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            She used to pile up all the art packages in the airlock and leave them for years instead of bringing them through into the temp controlled main body of the library/archive. So I’ve found a few oil paintings with severe blanching, the condition where moisture gets in between layers of paint and causes a white haze over everything.

            She was so generally shit that she eventually got sacked and escorted off the premises without notice, the company broke contract just to get rid of her.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Holy shit, that is horrendous. She deserved that.

          • El Jefe Ross

            That is freaking rad! That would look amazing on my wall.
