As you likely noticed, Joe has been out of the office all week. In between sips of mojito and having his feet lovingly and consentingly massaged by a gorgeous beach maiden, he briefly logged onto Facebook to let me know that I’m this blog’s “Weekend Dad.” If you thought this week sucked, it’s his fault for abandoning you so that he could focus on his tan.

If, however, you’ve enjoyed this week, I’m glad! List season isn’t exactly my favorite time of the year, but it’s been fun curating selections from our awesome writers and from the awesome artists who keep this whole thing spinning. Thanks for reading everything, and I hope you’ve enjoyed the non-list content too! I’d like to give a special thanks to both Randall Thor and Lacertilian for helping me wrangle guest lists. It takes a village to run a blog, but I’m proud to have been your temporary father for the week. Now onto what we normally do in Flush It Friday: the good-and-bad-and-uglying.


 

Bad/GoodYesterday, my mother went in for a surgery that she’s been hoping to get for quite a while. While that may not seem like a good thing, she will, ideally, benefit quite a bit from the procedure. You see, she’s been suffering from a persistent cough for several years now, at least since I got married back in 2013, but I’m pretty sure it started sooner than that. The cough, in addition to being painful and inconvenient, also presented her with a number of additional symptoms, including nausea, exhaustion, and acid reflux. Over the last two years, she’s tried all manner of treatments, ranging from dietary changes to medicine, but nothing has really worked. Finally, earlier this year a surgeon figured out that she suffered what’s called a hiatal hernia.

This hernia actually caused her stomach to leak acid into her lungs, inflicting upon her all of the negative symptoms. Finally, it seemed that we had a treatment in sight. However, the surgery was postponed twice this year. The first time, the surgeon was unsure about some results from a spirometry test and wanted to try one last medicinal treatment. The medicine had no effect. Then, the day before my mom was finally going to get the surgery, my parents were involved in the car crash I posted about a few weeks back. Although the surgeon was still willing to perform the surgery, broken sternum be damned, the anesthesiologist ultimately nixed it because my mom’s breathing was too shallow; anesthesia performed while the patient has shallow breathing runs the risk of causing pneumonia or other problematic side effects. Again, it seemed relief was fleeting.

Finally, though, my mom was able to get the surgery performed yesterday. At the time of writing, I haven’t spoken to her yet, but my dad assures me everything went well. So while surgery is no laughing matter that poses all sorts of risks, I hope that in this case my mother finally finds the relief she needs. She is a strong, vibrant woman whose faith, love, and spirit have been unconquered by this ailment, but it is hard to see the ones you love suffer. Hopefully she’ll finally return to the vitality she has always shown.


Ugly: This week, Toho finally unveiled the new appearance of Godzilla for the upcoming Japanese film Godzilla: Resurgence. The film, slated for release next summer, is unrelated to Legendary‘s 2014 Godzilla film and is being helmed by writer/director Hideaki Anno and special effects guru Shinji Higuchi. You can check out Big G’s new look below.

Yah, it’s ugly, but I like it. In the original Gojira film, Godzilla wasn’t a cuddly defender of humanity. He was a malevolent atomic abomination unleashed by Mother Earth to punish mankind for its scientific transgressions. I’m hoping this film lives up to the hype and returns to the nightmarish ethos of the original.

Let’s listen to something heavy and ugly while we wait for Godzilla: Resurgence to drop.

Well, now that you’ve gotten the good, bad, and ugly from me, it’s time for you to show what you’ve gotten.

Weekend Dad, signing off.

    Weekend Dad did a great job, with this post and making it through listmania.

  • Best wishes to your mom Dubs, having to watch a loved one suffer can be painful emotionally. I think we’ve all seen our fair share and the outcomes sometimes aren’t always pretty.

    Good: Listmania has been fun and I enjoyed reading everyone’s contributions even our tastes do not align.

    Bad: Too much work to do lately

    Ugly: Tronald Dump

    • JWEG

      I’ve seen that practice of switching around the letters of candidate’s names a lot on Raw Story. I think it’s pretty funny.

      None more than ‘Tez Crud’ though. I’ve taken easily to doing it, myself…

      • Memes are in order for all of this.

  • Sir Tapir The Based

    Bad: my dog got an eye infection
    Good: it wasn’t a horrible one and the eye’s pretty much healthy now

    • Lacertilian

      Kareoke

      • ┼yree

        Yeah, that. Spelling is hrd.

        EDIT: I don’t know if I spell that right.

        • Lacertilian

          I knew I spelled it wrong. Comments can’t be blank though

          • ┼yree

            Just saw the image now. Fuck the world.

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          good stuff jimmy, how long now?

          • not long, my last drink was on 8.22.15

          • COAL ROLL

            damn my last drink was a 8:22AM

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Awesome man congrats! Its a transition but its not a death sentence…

        • Lacertilian

          I never feel as drunk as everyone else seems, so it has never been pleasant for me.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I like karaoke because I’m a food singer.

    • Stockhausen

      Karaoke is one of mankind’s worst ideas. That wretched song is another. Crock pots are cool though, cuz meat.

      Also dancing, because dancing is awful.

      • ┼yree

        Hail to the Crock Pot.

        • Lacertilian

          Now you can cook up some mean winter chilli con-carnes and poop your life away.

      • Guess what you’re doing next time you’re in Charlotte

        • ┼yree

          Using your Crock Pot?

          • I do have two

          • ┼yree

            Good man. This is my third one. I think it’s going to be a gift for my mom now.

        • Stockhausen

          If you drag me to hell, as you propose, be prepared to listen to me sing with the best tone you’ve ever heard, but soul-wrenchingly flat.

          • sooooo avalon steel?

          • Stockhausen

            OOOOOOOH SIQQ BURN!

            Wait…

    • Boss the Ross

      Luckily my company’s Christmas party is on a saturday and not required to go to. Screw those people!

    • In the midst of all the festivities of the company christmas party I went to, some dude was like “fuck it, I’m gonna sing karaoke to Johnny Cash’s Hurt” and it bummed everyone out but it was fucking awesome and he murdered it.

            They just get very judgmental about how much cleaning it needs.

          • JWEG

            That’s a mother’s prerogative.

            Mine still gets on my case about the state of my living space and/or bathroom. She’s right though. I’m gross.

          • Max

            Me too! Men living on their own is a recipe for Dagobah.

          • Dubs

            Momma W instilled in me her obsessive cleaning habits. I’ve always been the clean freak in every living situation since Freshman year of college.

          • Max

            See, that’s why you’re married and I’m not.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      For sure, ditto!

  • Stockhausen

    Well wishes for Momma Dubz. Keep us updated.
    Good: My soccer team ruled last night, and I scored.
    Bad: Most things in the world
    Ugly: The blood blister perpetually on my foot from soccer.

    • Lacertilian

      I see you’re calling it soccer

      • That’s right, the Aussies call it “KickyDoo”

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          We call it “Voi vittu mitä paskaa!”

        • Lacertilian

          I was referring to discussion Ted and Stocky had on FB

          • Ah, I’m outta the loop

          • Lacertilian

            Ted was calling it soccer, Stocky said it’s football. Ted explained that our national team is called the Socceroos and asked why our country would lie to us.

          • Dagon

            II was going to type an anti-government rant but then I decided to just say that I try to call it football whenever I can out of spite

          • Socceroos sounds like a grade school kids’ team. So great.

        • Stockhausen

          Oy, my kicky-doo squibs are fusslin’ on the arvo, you bumbin. One more fo-fo and we take the lot, I gruck!

          • Lacertilian

            You flamin’ galah.

      • Stockhausen

        I know. It really, really bugs me that we hijacked the term “football,” but most people I talk to would not get what I’m talking about if I didn’t say soccer.

        • Lacertilian

          I call it soccer because that’s what people refer to it as over here, unless they like it, then they call it football.
          I don’t like it, so I call it soccer to piss them off.
          Simple, but enjoyable fun.

  • Thank you for all your hard work this week, Dubs. I’ll be back home and extra grumpy tomorrow.

    • Could you return the Manga I let you borrow on your way home?

        Video Girl Ai

      • tigeraid

        Did it include a hentai body pillow for the long trip?

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Good: got my graphics card fixed.
    Bad: started playing skyrim again and whatever semblance of a life I once had is disappearing.

    • Did you have the typical situation where you load up an old save and can’t remember what the fuck you were doing and decide to start a new game and then instantly regret it because you got fucking wrecked by a mudcrab?

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        Nah I went back to suplexing people as my khajiit thief, or running into their houses, beating them into submission and stealing all their stuff.

        • Don’t forget to shout Lydia off of high hrothgar. I mean what no that’s evil I would never do such a thing

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            I did that to elenwen after Season Unending. Lost some rep with Ulfric for allowing her to stay at the meeting but it was worth it.

    • tertius_decimus

      Freaking Esbjörn, who’s bagged script has refused me from completing main campaign. 4 years from now, still there.

    • Skyrim > Life
      Always.

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        I’ve started playing morrowind now. None of my family will ever see me again.

  • Good: fallout4
    Bad: fallout4
    Ugly: legendary glowing bloodbugs

    • bruh, why the “bad”? it’s amazebro

      • Because drugs are bad mmmkay?

        • wash your mouth out with abraxo cleaner, sir

          • I was saying that fallout4 is like a drug and I can’t stop. Send help and stimpackss. Also a shipment of adhesive.

          • tertius_decimus

            20g of cyanacrilate will make stop this.

          • you’re not touching my adhesive (most valuable thing evar)

    • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

      Im back on Diablo. I missed it so. The changes made with Ult Evil Ed saved the game, imo

  • tertius_decimus

    Good: hell is where the heart is, as the saying goes. My current hell has come to an end. Pain no more. Good vibes. No more uncertainity. At last, now is New Year time, unexpectedly!

    Bad: she still hopes to be beside me, however I don’t see the clue. I’ve little respect to those who leave beloved ones on their own when the life has no mercy. We must help each other, otherwise what’s the point to be together? Good people are only seen in troubles. Hopefully she’ll find her “better” man… y’a know, that’s unlikely.

        Good vibes taken!

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    GOOD:My SG is happy and for cheaper than I thought it would be, 2 kinds of nugs that I’ve never had.
    BAD: Hernias. I’ve had one, and I still feel it on occasion. Hope the current treatment goes well.
    UGLY: Those who have not read the words of The Good Morty. They are like Jerrys in a world filled with Ricks.

    • tertius_decimus

      SG, you mean Gibson?

    • Glad your shooting guard is happy man.

    • Guppusmaximus

      Don’t be a Jerry! {You just reminded me that I have to continue to suffer in agony whilst awaiting the next season – bad shake}

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Hey, I’m suffering right there with you, as are others here.
        Funny thing is, the only person I know named Jerry is the most un-Jerry type of person ever.

        • Guppusmaximus

          Yea, Jerry gets a bad rap. It’s funny how Beth has shown her true colors and isn’t so innocent. Like in that episode where they go to intergalactic(?) couples therapy. Classic.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            He’s still pretty bad though but yeah, Beth is way too driven and manic.

    • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

      Of all my previous injuries, Ive never had a hernia. Ive also never broken a bone. Hope that gets better.

      When are you gonna write us your doom epic?

      WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUB

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Nothing to do about this type of hernia except lose weight, which I’m doing and will keep on trying to do.
        Perhaps for my 50th birthday I will write my Stoner/Sludge magnum opus “I don’t give a fuck! Season one in your face!” followed by a concept album about Fake Doors.

        • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

          Hopefully, your one-off single about the pangs of being Tiny Rick will top the charts

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That’ll be on the 7″ with the b-side of “Ballad Of Coach Feratu”.

  • Waynecro

    Good: All these awesome best-of lists on the Toilet.
    Bad: I want to hear the new Galneryus album, but I don’t want to buy a physical copy. Why no digital version, bros?
    Ugly: Autolobotomy by Contagion 237. Best kinda ugly:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSehs4ha-aY

    • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

      IIRC, they’re releasing the digi copies on the 25th. Keep in mind that the album isn’t out just yet. Patience, Wayniel-san!

      • Waynecro

        Oh, sweet. I didn’t know that. Thanks! I need Galneryus to give my fighting spirit a boost.

        • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

          De nada. You know I’d already be all over it and weebing out the Toilet if it were already out.

          • Waynecro

            Very true. Though I thought it was already out because you can purchase physical copies from various websites. Galneryus always cheers me right up. I don’t know what it is about their music that does it. Must be magic.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Gah, I spent $45 years back getting their ‘Everlasting’ single/DVD direct from Japan. As far as I know, they don’t have an American distributor.

          • Waynecro

            It’s surprising how difficult it is to get music from Japan without spending a fortune on imports.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            But Japan tends to get unreleased tracks, and bands hook you up with all sorts of goodies. A lot of Japanese bands hook you up with things like posters, band-oriented video games, exclusive videos, etc.

          • Waynecro

            The Japanese market for physical media is massive, and Japanese companies know how to sell that shit. I had to edit a paper about it once. Fascinating. I usually just want digital albums, though.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Same here. My physical CDs are over in a box collecting dust.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, mine too. Though now that the girl I live with is my ex, I should display all the gruesome albums on the mantle. Bwahahah! Also, I hate ripping CDs. Shit never works right. Whenever I buy an actual CD and rip it, shit skips or sounds shitty in general. I always end up dowloading digital files.

  • Hope your mom feels better dubya. Acid is evil.

    • Lacertilian

      Caveat: Unless it’s on blotter.

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      Yes it does. I always have Tums handy now.

      • Waynecro

        I’ve found that apple-cider vinegar can help prevent heartburn if you take a couple teaspoons with water before a meal. Of course, the cause of the heartburn determines whether this remedy will work. If you have a serious medical condition or something, this shit won’t help.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          I have a previous hernia, and I have no qualms about eating food that others would find too spicy.

          • Waynecro

            I used to get heartburn all the time because of my pancreatic issues, and apple-cider vinegar didn’t help. Now that I only get heartburn occasionally for regular reasons (spicy food, stress, etc.), preventive apple-cider vinegar is a huge help. I rarely have to take handfuls of Tums these days.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump
      • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

        Acid reflux is a bitch and every bit as fun as it sounds. Bread tends to work wonders for it, as does cucumber soda.

  • Good: work is going well. People trust me and my work really impressed some clients. Yay.

    Bad: been sick off and on the last two weeks. The last two nights I’ve spent vomiting into the wee hours of the morning. I’ve had to use way too many sick days.

    Ugly: no Joe this week and the lack of power metal in all your lists

    • This is karma for being intoxicated while asking noble beast about their new album and not remembering what they said.

      • Once you’re in a band, you will understand how old the “when’s the new album come out?” question becomes when you don’t know the answer.

        Also it’s the greatest question once you actually have a date

        • Bro I’m the air guitarist for archspire. Don’t you pay attention?

  • JWEG

    Good
    https://twitter.com/JWEG79/status/674857407789404160

    Watched TurboKid last night. The tone is somehow both ‘like’ and not-at-all like one of those 80’s post-apocalyptic “PetrolPunk” films like Mad Max or its imitators (have I mentioned Exterminators of the Year 3000 lately?).

    It’s closer to affectionate homage and parody of the subgenre, in the same way The Editor was one for giallo films. Plus it feels very Canadian, even with the New Zealand cooperation.

    Also got these:
    https://twitter.com/JWEG79/status/674834079989153792

    I enjoyed them all, though I have to admit a bias toward Alterna Comics publications in general because of all the sweet artwork its founder (Peter Simeti) has sent me. Not as gifts mind you (I paid for it all) but still producing a bias because they’re just so good.

    Bad
    – I had to invigilate a 3 hour exam last night. Current policy (because we’ve got a lot of cheaters in our midst) is that the invigilator must be literally always moving around. So I effectively had a three-hour walk in inappropriate shoes last night. I’m still worn out, and somehow my feet hurt like I hiked twice that far.

    Ugly
    The Faculty of Human and Social Development recently decided to make explicit that students could challenge any grade provided by an instructor, including the process for challenging – with specific notice that if the instructor could prove that it was an objective rather than subjective mark. That hasn’t stopped one student from grade-grubbing to undeservedly change a Group Evaluation (so not even my decision but rather his peers in his group of 6) from an 8 to a 10. It’s a 10% component of his Lab mark, itself only 25% of the course – so he’s literally making a stink over a difference of a half a percent of the final grade.

    What makes it ‘ugly’ and not just annoying’ are the lengths to which he has gone to make this happen, all the way along disrespecting authority and ‘final decisions’.

    1) Challenging a Peer Evaluation (which I pointed out was the decision of his Group, not me)
    2) Bringing that to the attention of the Course instructor by email before I could do so myself
    3) Ignoring that the instructor wrote back that he supported my decision
    4) Complaining about it to the instructor after the Class Exam (since I wasn’t present: invigilator pairs must be opposite gendered), thus annoying him because he’d already backed me up
    5) Emailing us separately to ask to meet separately to discuss an “issue” with our
    decision. Note that (a) he wouldn’t spell out his “issue” and (b) he’s trying to pull the “kid of divorced parents” method of dividing the two authorities by begging separately
    6) Refusing to respond when we both communicated our displeasure at this tactic (and suggested he wait until we came up with a meeting time all three of us could attend)
    7) Lodging a complaint with the department, thus violating the HSD regulation that escalation can only occur after all parties involved in the decision have had a chance to consult with the complainant

    I almost can’t wait to see what his next obfuscation and misdirection will be…

  • Dubs

    Thanks for the kind wishes, y’all.

  • Lacertilian

    Good: I have some new music to listen to. The blood tumor they found in my hip is not aggressive according to the MRI scans.

    Bad: My back pain will not subside.

    Ugly: My brain function on these pain killers is fucked. Bear with me while I continue to offend and say dumb shit more than normal.

        It’s going to be amazing if I stay under 100kg after the lack of physical activity and hefty bouts of the munchies I’ve been getting!

    • Dagon

      Nice one. MRIs with good news >>>>

      About the back pain though 🙁

      • Lacertilian

        I would like to never need another one.

        • Dagon

          What was more uncomfortable, being confined in a tiny space or the noise the machine makes?

          • Lacertilian

            Dealing with my own fart in the tiny tube for 45 minutes.

          • Dagon

            Think about it, you got to try the delicious food you’ve been cooking twice. Or at least its putrid remains.

          • Lacertilian

            It was KFC…
            I can’t cook much with my back, so I’ve been coaching Mrs Lizard.

            A solid investment

          • Lacertilian

            Even though she’s a teacher she falls into the old student pitfalls of only wanting to learn enough to get a pass, I’m pushing her towards distinctions but she dun’ care.

          • Dagon

            Students, amirite?

    • I used to have back pain when I worked at ups. Heat works wonders. Hot showers and saunas if you can. Make sure you lift everything with your legs and sit up straight.

      • Lacertilian

        Yeah man, being tall is tough. Heat isn’t a problem where I live.

        • I’m 6’5″ I feel your pain

          • Lacertilian

            I know, you hideous monster…
            I think i’m 6’3″ in your archaic measurement system.

          • It’s not my fault America had to go and be different than the world and make a stupid meaudrmebt system

            Edit: wtf autocorrect that’s not a word

          • Lacertilian

            No no, you didn’t go and be different, you are just stubborn and scared of change.

          • Dubs

            Did you have a stroke at the end of this sentence?

          • Lmao no. My phone has been autocorrecting things to words that aren’t actually WkDs for some reason. It’s quite irritating.

          • Fucking hell

          • JWEG

            My father is stubbornly attached to using pseudo-Imperial units for everything despite having literally renounced every other aspect of his American-ness 40 years ago.

            When I complain about the current temperature (in Celsius), he’ll inevitably ask “what’s that in real units?”

            That said, Canada is weirdly all over the place in common usage. Depending on who you talk to we describe most measurements in metric but people height in feet and inches; weight in grams and kilos unless it’s for bulk groceries or (again) people sizes, and the less said about the arbitrariness of baking and food preparation the better.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Lol, check out my post up top about my week, and the confusion I had with Euro measurements.

        • Also I meant like direct heat with like heating pads or something. It being hot outside won’t do shit.

        • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump
          • Lacertilian

            Your point?

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            The heat is the least of your worries!

          • Lacertilian

            Since practically no one dies from these creatures anymore, I’d be more concerned living in the land of regular mass shootings.

          • Dubs

            Don’t the crocs take a few people each year?

          • Lacertilian

            A few. Most of those tend to be Queenslanders and Northern Territorians who decide to do something outrageously stupid though.

          • Dubs

            Sounds like the Floridians with gators here.

          • Lacertilian

            I’d say that is an apt comparison but with more blue singlets and akubra hats.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Lol, here’s one regarding that (and another reason why America’s Dumbest Criminals needs to come back):

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Probably no more than they do in Florida. Hippos probably kill way more people than crocs or sharks do. I think I’ve told you my best friend’s story about how a woman that was on a safari (in Africa of course) with him went and petted the hippos cubs, ran up a tree, and was eventually killed by the mama hippo.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Sadly true. It’s fucking nuts over here. Americans are bitching about Syrian refugees, who have to go through a thorough as fuck background check, all while our own flock of homegrown loonies are going apeshit and gunning down people.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Nope, surprisingly not, having worked in a baking hot kitchen for hours on end, and dealing with VA weather in the summer, where it almost always hovers above 95 degrees.

            I was working with my step dad tearing out the furnace on a changeout in raleigh midsummer. 8 hours in prolly 140f heat with 90-100% humidity.

            I really dont remember mch of it

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Danni Minogue is the reason why we introduced cane toads (not shown on map).

            It didn’t work out. Now we have both. Cane Toads multiply by breeding. Danni Minogue multiplies by being a judge on new seasons of reality TV. Escape is futile.

    Ugly: Neck pain from sleeping half the night on my couch when I got home just drunk enough not to bother going to bed properly.

    Bad: The freakin’ cold outside last night! I thought it was supposed to be summer; it could easily have been a winter’s night by my locale’s standards. I was at a gig held in the outdoor drinking area of the pub; it was a five-band bill so it went very late – and man, I froze. I ended up buying a hoodie from the merch table just to get warmer even though I was already wearing my own.

    Good: But it was good to socialize and network. The bands were decent and several of them are friends of mine from having done gigs with them in the past. Plenty of fun.

    Also good: Curiously, the whole night, while driving home, got me to thinking about how lucky I am not just to have friends in real life, but also to have you guys. I really mean that. We talk esoteric metal and so many other things that I almost NEVER get a chance to discuss in the real world, and it means more to me than you’ll ever know. Or maybe you DO know – after all, you’re all here for the same reasons I am, if I’m not being too presumptuous. Also I’ve never done any published writing before now, but this is like THE perfect forum to discuss the sort of crap I love writing about; so it’s totally non-intimidating to call oneself “a blogger” or whatever when contributing here.

    Maybe I’m still just too drunk and emotional from last night but I fuckin’ love the Toilet.

    • Lacertilian

      What bands did you see dude? Any ones we’d know?

      • Max

        Nah, it was all local.
        1) Red Desert Ocean. Stoner rock. Not really my thing.
        2) Electric Sex Pants. Punk/shock rock. Mesmerizing frontwoman who is a friend of mine. (I’m thinking of joining another band of hers if she ever starts it; it’d be a raunchy Plasmatics-type thing. She wants it to be all-female but will take a male drummer if necessary, provided I’m prepared to wear a gimp mask.)
        3) Mind-Remover. Can’t remember much about ’em.
        4) Trench Effect. Slower metal. Friends of mine too; they’re the ones I bought the hoodie from. They also specialize in doing one Roth-era Van Halen cover per show; last night it was “Panama” but they can do, like, eight others. (Kind of a stipulation for the lead guitarist staying a member, I believe.) It’s always a highlight for me. In the past I’ve also seen them pull off a very professional rendition of “One”, which not many local bands can do in my experience.
        5) The One Within. Groove/power metal also fronted by a lady who is a very dear friend of mine as well as several work colleagues. She’s really pushing me to get back into playing again, too. She’s always an inspiring performer.

        • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

          Groove/power metal? Definitely gonna have to check this one out!

          • Max

            Actually, I’ve led you astray with that one. There isn’t really anything “power metal” about their sound at all – dunno why I cited that. Maybe because I’ve always associated the word “power” with Eva’s vocals or something…

    • feel free to write about Van Halen any time, good sir

    • I had some terrible neck pain a few weeks back from doing the exact same thing. It sucks and it’s annoying. My wife’s a massage therapist so she went to work on me for a few days and got rid of it.

        Hold on to her.

  • Paris Hilton

    I know the feeling of being a weekend dad. In fact, the weekends are the only time Shannon ever lets me see my beautiful baby boy. It’s sad that he will grow up under the oppressive regime of her and Jason, the orthodontist. Sure; he may be extremely good looking, he may be taller and more muscular than me, he may be funnier, kinder and more educated. However, that does not give him the right to raise my boy.

    I have just finished my 6th cigarette in a row. The waiting is killing me. Every weekend I have to undo the damage and the lies that they tell my son about fluoride, chem-trails, and the true nature of the One World Government. Every weekend I have to cleanse him of the fluoride with flax and oregano oil smoothies. Someday he will be old enough to think for himself, and I know he’ll fight against The One World Government, just like his father. No, not Jason the orthodontist who feeds him, clothes him, and gives him as much legitimate love that man can give. His real father; his weekend father.

    • Dagon

      I missed this.

      • Paris Hilton

        Be sure to question everything. Do not miss the true messages that The One World Government is sending you through ALL MEDIA. Think metal is a true beacon of truth? Think with all of its vinyl and rebellion there is no way that the lyrics within are simple shadow messages? Guess again…

      The same Rolling Stone that said Mastadon is the heaviest band of all time? (love em, but nope, far from the heaviest of all time)

  • Boss the Ross

    The bad: Lack of Clutch on all the year end lists.

    • i think that’s due to the amount of good shit that came out. 2016 looks even crazier. This is a golden era for metal.

      • Boss the Ross

        But Clutch is the greatest band of all time…

        • You misspelled Dave grohl

          /s

          • Boss the Ross

            I may have misspelled Dave Grohl, but i did not misspell the greatest band of all time.

      • JWEG

        The last few years have been great for quality, quantity and most importantly quality of quantity.

        Each year I actually state somewhere that the “next year can’t possibly top this”, and each year I’ve been proven wrong.

        • Nailed it

        • Boss the Ross

          Good point

        • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

          And underground, DIY music is definitely more broad and independent this year!

    • Dubs

      I love Clutch, but I, uh, still haven’t listened to the new one *ducks*

      • Boss the Ross

        Why do I keep getting this answer? We’re talking about the greatest Rock and Roll band around. Please, please, listen to it.

        • Dubs

          Probably because you have to actually buy it to listen to it, and there have been other albums I wanted to hear more. If they had slapped in on the ‘Fy like they did with Earth Rocker, I’d have heard it day 1.

          • Lacertilian

            These damn labels that don’t let the bands upload to bandcamp are seriously stupid. I still haven’t heard Mammoth Storm’s latest and after talking to the band they tried to tell me to just buy the album. I explained that delivery cost to Australia is prohibitive, so no sale for them.

          • Dubs

            I’ve noticed that trying to import stuff from Aus can be absurd compared to European shipping.

          • Lacertilian

            Distance is a killer.

          • Boss the Ross

            This looks fun though.

            What be this?

          • Boss the Ross

            Rachel, my niece’s lizard.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            I got a Galneryus CD/DVD years back from Japan. $45 for the thing, and $30 of that was shipping alone.

          • Boss the Ross

            That is definitely a good point.

          • Lacertilian

            Yeah man, the album might be $7 but shipping alone could be $14.
            With all the music I’d like to buy, that means sacrificing buying 2 other albums, something I can’t do on my meagre budget.

          • fedex wanted $130 USD to ship you a shirt. currently investigating other methods…

          • Boss the Ross

            Holy shnikey

          • Lacertilian

            That’s dumb. I bought 4 TovH shirts for me and some mates and for all 4 delivery was about $30.

          • Boss the Ross

            Same here. There a quite a lot of European bands i would enjoy to have physical copies of, but shipping matches the price of the album. I can’t imagine having to pay twice the price though

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Shouldn’t be that high on shipping unless you get import CDs.

          • Lacertilian

            Well, yeah, we were talking about importing CDs after all.

          • If you want, I can Dropbox it to you but you have to buy it after bathing in its majesty

          • Dubs

            Nah, I’m sure I’ll pick it up at some point.

      • Lacertilian

        Same. I still blame that boring fucking cover art for quelling my interest.

        • Boss the Ross

          I had the same thought, it threw me off after staring at the sweet Earth Rocker cover for 2 years. But it grew on me and after listening i realised the cover and booklet art goes well with the album and its music.

      • BAD DUBYA, BAD

      • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

        Me neither, dubs. Dont feel bad.

      • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump
        • Boss the Ross

          Thank you for the backup.

    • i can tell you why it wasn’t on my list: i love Clutch but i’m not as big into hard rock as i used to be. and just like Iron Maiden’s new album, it’s a great addition to their catalog but it didn’t make my jaw drop like other albums this year

      • Boss the Ross

        But Clutch supercedes all.

        • can’t argue with that, dude. maybe i need to see them live again, that’ll surely reinvigorate my interest!

          • Boss the Ross

            I saw them last month, they ended up playing all of Psychic Warfare throughout the set. It was unreal. They are so good live.

          • i saw them at sounds of the underground 2005 and it gave me a new appreciation for the band, as in, i was dumbfounded.

          • Boss the Ross

            Sounds about right.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          I have altered my list. You made a convincing argument. Here it is since this Friday post will be here for a bit.

          John Carpenter – Lost Themes

          • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

            Your top 5 is no shocker, really most of your list seems about what i was going to expect (i didnt see a previous version). Ill do mine tomorrow

          • Boss the Ross

            You’re the man KJM, thank you.

            Hochelaga made it to my number 3 spot. Thank you for the recommendation.

            That album fucking rules.

          • Boss the Ross

            Yes it does. So heavy!

          • more beer

            One of my favorites of 2015.

            Motherfuckin’ Dopethrone! That bottom end is heavier than concrete pig shits!

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      There’s some, but not enough.

  • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

    The good: Got my Christmas money, and ordered up the La Casa Al Mare shirt I’ve been wanting for most of the year (plus got an exclusive download with it, which is plunging me deep into the Bandcamp trap).

    I keep forgetting that Europeans (they’re from Italy) have a different way of measuring things. So when they said the female model on there was 5’24, I thought they meant that she was 7 feet tall!

    The bad: nothing so far. Pretty chill week overall.

    The ugly: Whoever this is. I’m going to have to oil up and research this one on the top bunk research lab!

  • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

    Good: Four day weekend, bitch! Atlas Moth and Pale Chalice vinyls should be otw soon. Making burritos and catching a proper buzz, so all is right with the world.

    Bad: ITS NEARLY 70F. ITS MID-DECEMBER. GLOBAL WARMING ISNT REAL.

    Ugly: Some of these lists. . . Im just kidding, its Tapir.

    • Lacertilian

      Pale Chalice!

      • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

        I fell in love with it because of you, lizard. Its always been you.

        • Lacertilian

          Moustache Bear got me on it.
          Did you try the latest Barshasketh? Similar style of black metal and equally awesome.

          • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

            The amount of stuff i miss every year grows and grows.

      Yo I posted this on FB, but since you aren’t there, you might not have seen it. Check it.

      • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

        Yall are killin me here

        • Lacertilian

          Join the FB group and use a covert (dumb) psuedonym like a few of us did.
          Fixed!

          • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

            Mmmm. That breaks a couple oaths i took and respect i have.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            No FB for me, far more trouble than it’s worth.

          • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

            Youre my favorite

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Thank you, kind sir.

          • Boss the Ross

            Same.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Eh, I gave up on the TOH Facebook group quite a while back. Too many posts and everything tends to get lost in the shuffle.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Love you too, snooky buns!
            But, my main complaint is that it’s about like having 40+ posts a day on here. By the time anyone gets to answer on one post, everyone’s already moved on to 2 or 3 ones. A bit different than me replying to posts on here. At least articles on here have room to breathe a bit. See where I’m coming from?

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            *like having 40+ articles*

      • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

        Actually, someone posted this somewhere and i did listen to it once, i will do it again

        • Dubs

          Oh rad.

      • Waynecro

        I never wanted to use Facebook until I heard about the Toilet ov Hell FB group. Now I want to join up, and I hate myself for it.

        • m/

          • Waynecro

            I used to work for a company that “erases” embarrassing/shameful/criminal information about clients from the internet. I had to have a FB account to do the job, so it probably still exists.

          • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

            Im sure mine still exists. I had a FB back when you had to have a college email address to open an account. Had it for years, even. Never brought me anything but problems.

          • Waynecro

            I only used mine to get access to clients’ Facebook pages. I never did anything else with it. Hell, I don’t even remember what name I used. I may have to look into it, though.

          • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

            Theres probably some angry woman somewhere still trying to send me a hatePM

          • Waynecro

            A good reason to avoid using FB.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Most likely. There’s a process where you can permanently erase it, but it’s a long, drawn out process.

        • I held out for as long as I could but I caved and got in. Nobody besides my wife and my good friends know I have an account. I set up a fake email and everything to thwart Zuckerberg.

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      55F, light wind, and I have windows open, on December 11th. It’s not beyond the realm of possibility, but it isn’t normal.

      • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

        (I meant the high tomorrow is 72f. Thats the all time record for my area)

  • ┼yree
  • Great: another fun week hanging with all you turds!
    Bad (but not terrible): folks who aren’t around as much as they used to be

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    More good: the wrestling ticket I got is a front row ticket.

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      I imagine where GFW is concerned, that’s not too tough. ^_^ I’m surprised you had to pay at all. If you held out you probably could’ve got a free ticket.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I paid because I feared it would sell out. Wrestling is popular in my area. I got the first seat in row A of section 103. The tickets went on sale today anyway.

        • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

          Ill look for you on the ppv

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          You’re kidding, right? GFW hasn’t sold out a single show. I’m not trying to disparage the wrestlers working for Jarrett, but there’s not enough drawing power on that roster. If TNA couldn’t draw in NYC without papering the crowd, there’s no way Jarrett’s version of it will.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            They have Chris Masters and Davey Boy Smith’s son.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That’s nice but it ain’t gonna draw enough to fill that house, maybe 50% if they’re lucky.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            They also have Scott Steiner and Jim Duggan, Shelton Benjamin and the Bullet Club.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Again good names, but more novelty than anything else. Shelton Benjamin, Bullet Club, and Colt Cabana are really the only draws for actual decent wrestling. If the Young Bucks were there, that would be a different story.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Colt Cabana is going to be there.

          • jim duggan, that’s you

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            You wrestle for them?!?!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            No. I’m just going as a fan.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            TNA was good for a while, but now it’s going the WCW route. AKA, a retirement home for over the hill wrestlers. Nowadays, I just watch FWE and of course Japanese hardcore and Vale Tudo.

    • have fun JJD! there’s a local wrestling circuit that comes around St. Louis on the third Saturday of every month and it’s a f**kin’ blast!

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        It’s in January.

    • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

      BTW, I think you’re the one on here talking about wanting Crystal Pepsi to come back. If so, your prayers have been answered!

  • Good: Moving in with the girly girl next month.

    Bad: We must merge our cats.

    Ugly: THE MERGING OF THE CATS!!!

    Seriously, though, if anyone has any advice on how to merge cats, please…um…advise. Her cat is a sweetie. Mine’s a dick. (Sarcastic answers only, please.)

    • Waynecro

      Have you seen Human Centipede? Perhaps you can merge cats that way. You wouldn’t even have to buy food for two cats!

      • Soup-out-my-nose hilarious. Thanks, waynehole. It burns.

        • Waynecro

          No problem. Seems like critters who already get all up in their own and other critters’ b-holes all the time wouldn’t mind the setup too much. Well, at least not as much as humans do.

          • My cat hates everyone who is not me. And has never lived around other cats. He’s persnickety. I foresee some kind of kitty bloodbath.

          • Waynecro

            Good luck, man. Invest in a kitty-sized tranquilizer gun.

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      They either learn to co-exist or they don’t. Unfortunately I know of no magick that will make this any easier. This hasn’t been an issue for me in nearly 20 years.

      • So what you’re telling me is . . .

        THERE IS NO HOPE

        • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

          Nope. Theyll work it out or they wont. Just dobt get all trippy when theyre around each other, they can tell when youre nervous

          • THEY KNOW WHEN I’VE SINNED

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Yep, they do. Cats and dogs both have their own unique(for lack of a better phrase) extra-sensory qualities about them.

    • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

      My old lady and i merged my cat (7yrs old large cat) and her part pit (7yrs). It wasnt too pretty at first.

      We recently added a kitten (6 wks). The momma cat is annoyed but they play and get on ok. The kitten and the dog have mixed emotions

      • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

        Lol, it didn’t take long for our cat and the new dog to be all over each other’s bungholes. And now they team up whenever me or the roomies are cooking.

    • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

      You could always do like Dog Welder with your cats.

    Oh, in other good news, I got an interview confirmed with Venera 4. Woot woot!

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Since when did HR from Bad Brains have a reggae band? Also, why is it coming to a pizza place near me?

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      He’s had that solo band since the mid 80s.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I’ll have to see them.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          You should. Be warned, there’s a 50/50 chance he won’t show up.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I hope he does.

          • Boss the Ross

            That would be outstanding! HR is the man.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            My knowledge of reggae is very small. I hope he’s good at it.

          • Boss the Ross

            I like Reggae when it’s done well. I’m going to check his stuff out. But hell, I’d see HR do just about anything.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Steel Pulse and Burning Spear are really good.

          • Boss the Ross

            I will check them out.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Yep.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Wasn’t he in the hospital not too long ago? I dunno if they ever said what he was there for, but he was damn near his deathbed.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That’s Dr Know, the guitarist.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            Oh.

          • more beer

            Or he will get into a fight with someone.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That too.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Hope your Mom is ok! Like that Godzilla! Looks like a mean, shredder of a beast!

    Good stuff: New temps in at work seem like a good bunch. I’ve had to make my general chat a little more appropriate, but there’s no indication so far that I’ll actually have to work harder. Just watched The Devil in Miss Jones. Classy stuff, Roger Ebert’s favourite porno. He gave it 3/4. Powerful central performance from Georgina Spelvin is what mostly makes it work, but in general its a cool concept, crisply shot, excellently scored, variously hot and creepy, in the end a powerful downer. Recommended. Currently listening to the mighty Kjeld.

    Bad stuff: I have a cold, which caused me a shitty, nightmare ridden night last night, and which I am currently battling with Bells and Strepsils. Fingers crossed…

    • Dubs

      Thanks, mate. She’s up and walking around today. Pain is high, but she’s doing well. Sorry about the nightmares.

    And just ordered up a White Sox shirt. Not a baseball fan, but showing my south side pride. Plus with buying it, a couple of bucks goes to St. Jude’s Childrens Hospitals, so all and all it’s a win win, and for one of my favorite charities out there.

  • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaand had an idea earlier……………… I have a copy, yes a physical copy of Rock N Roll Nightmare 2 (you might remember TOH’s triumphant review of the first one), which is insanely difficult to find:

    Whoever wins Riff Of The Week next week gets a free copy from me (getting bands to join in on the voting is a major plus).

    Sound good?

    The Good: Big weekend for MMA fans. Aldo/McGregor, Weidman/Rockhold, Edgar/Mendez, Namajunas/Van Zant. Fight Heaven.

    The Bad: I ate more sweets than I should have at the office Christmas potluck. 🙁

    The Ugly: I have to fucking work Saturday.

    • Boss the Ross

      Ugh, Saturday work…

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      I have to work too, but only for a couple hours.

      • Boss the Ross

        Ugh.

  • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

    My Top 5 For The Year:

    (1). Carlie Rae Jepsen – ‘Emotion’. Pretty much the best dreampop CD I’ve heard since the epic masterpiece that is M83’s ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’, which is saying A LOT!!!! Earworms galore and one of the most brilliant pieces of electronic pop out there. If you’re not bouncing down the street with this on your headphones, you truly have no groove.

    (2). Midnight Odyssey – ‘Shards Of Silver Fade’. It’s rare that I sit through ANYTHING for 2 hours straight, but this is a grand rare example. Epic, atmospheric black metal that stands right up there with Lumnos and Mechina.

    (3). Killing Joke – ‘Pylon’. I honestly thought that they couldn’t top their last 3 CDs, but this industrial-metal-punk-whatever-Jaz-decides-to-throw-in supernaut with two wrecking balls for hands tops all of them! No small feat, even for a band that’s been as long lasting and consistent as Killing Joke.

    (4). Electric Six – ‘Bitch Don’t Let Me Die!’. Electric Six, enough said!

    (5). King 810 – ‘Midwest Monsters’. Say what you will, but this is definitely far more refined and mature than ‘Memoirs Of A Murderer’ (extremelolbuttz). Rap from actual rappers, more technical and rhythmic, plus losing a lot (not completely, it’s still there) tough guy bravado. And definitely makes me think of back home on the south side of Chicago.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Fucking horrible list, except for Killing Joke

      • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

        Haven’t seen your list. Kesa is definitely up there, and thanks for that!

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Steven Wilson! March 4th in Boston, muthafuckas!

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          He’s coming here again next year. Will go if I get a chance.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I should be able to score tix after the holidays.

        • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

          Beh, saw Porcupine Tree with Opeth (when I interviewed them), and thought they were good. Listening to their CDs though = flush! His new CD was a flusher.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            No way, Hand Cannot Erase is brilliant. Fear Of A Blank Planet is 5-star excellence.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            It didn’t quite tickle my pickle.

          • Dubs

            We’ve covered this ground, but I definitely agree regarding Porcupine Tree. I really enjoy The Incident too, but it’s different.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I enjoyed Hand Cannot Erase much more than Incident.

          • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

            PT is a band that I really tried to get into, but couldn’t, much like Voivod.

            *hides in the boo box*

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            YOU’RE A WEEB FUCK YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING

      • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

        I…….. I’ll admit it, and poo poo’d on it before. But I really like the new Ghost

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          Well, there’s that anyway…

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Also it’s Kesä. Kesä! NEVER FORGET THE FUCKING UMLAUTS BITCH!

      • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

        Lol, I know. Doing those on my computer is a bitch, but at least I didn’t say Kei$a.

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          I’d have to look it up.

    • Maik Beninton™

      I guess I should check that new King810.
      I love nu metal anyway.

  • Sexy Supreme Leader >> Trump

    Bad: RIP, Psycommander (Bestias De Asalto).. Interviewed them a little while back on here. The singer died a few months ago, and probably his last interview. 🙁
