Flush It Friday: Weekend Dad Returns

You’ve likely noticed a distinct lack of Joe this week. He bought a house and doesn’t love you anymore. Not like I do. Weekend Dad is always here for you. You know the drill. Goods, bads, uglies. Let’s flush this out.


Good: My anniversary is next week, so my wife and I are celebrating by going to Alamo Drafthouse this weekend. It should be a lot of fun! I’m excited to spend some quality time with her since we’ve both been really busy with work/academics.

Offering 1: They Mostly Come Out at Night – Scorched Upon This Earth

FFO: Giant Squid, North (if they used cellos), Vmthanaachth (if they were way, way less artsy)


Bad: I haven’t really had heartburn since getting married because my wife and I cook the majority of our meals, and I typically bring a packed lunch full of fruits and veggies to work every day. However, this week we had a celebratory dinner at the greasiest (read: best) Mexican joint in town, followed by a junk food pot luck the following evening. Yesterday, my stomach acid was roiling like the sea boiling around a spiteful Moby Dick as it roared up from the depths to do battle with Ahab. Thankfully, getting back on a regular diet has helped immensely.

Offering 2: Angmaer – Towards Darkness’ Paradise

FFO: Eternally Enthroned, Darkthrone, Bathory


Ugly: Randall Thor is buying one of these disgusting things.

Humanity has officially gone too far. We are witnessing the decline of western civilization.

Offering 3: Horrisonous – The Plague Doctors

FFO: Hypocrisy, The Slow Death, Temple Nightside


Now, my sons and daughters, share with me your victories and failures and horrible bowel movements. I want to hear about everything. Please love me as much as your regular dad.

  • Good: Finished the semester and ready to waste the summer in this here Toilet ayyyy
    Bad: Pathetically short McNulty hangtime 🙁
    Ugly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg6DgNXc7Xs

    • Waynecro

      McNulty’s a good dude.

      • Nah dude’s trash with terrible taste in greek food

        • Waynecro

          Feta <<<<<<<<<<

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Sir, I said sir. Your arrows happen to be pointing in the wrong direction, due to a humane error.

          • Waynecro

            Sorry, man. I just don’t dig cheese that tastes like a barnyard smells.

          • Food that smells like a corpse jizzed in a gym sock>>>>>>>>>

          • Waynecro

            I’m not refined enough to appreciate that aroma.

          • Filthy food is the perfect accompaniment to filthy music. And if you’re not into filthy music, well, there’s just no hope for you…

            This album >>>

          • I’ve been listening to it a lot lately, plus this one from the same year:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmTw6Q2P-Nc

          • Dubs

            Oh yah, this one was rad too. Been a while since I jammed it.

          • Waynecro

            I jam filthy music but eat clean.

          • Dubs

            Feta is basically ambrosia. Git gud

          • Waynecro

            I’d rather eat ambrosia salad. It doesn’t taste or smell like animal teat.

          • Not tr00 enough.

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

            WAYNECRO 4 PREZ!!!!!!!!! SMAAAAAASH STINKY CHEESE!!!!!!!!

          • Waynecro

            I think Camembert tastes like spoiled glass-cleaning chemicals.

          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

            Stinky cheese is what makes the world go round, playa! Especially putting some feta in a Greek salad, with of course extra anchovies.

            If you’re not looking like this afterwards, you’re doing it wrong!

          • Waynecro

            My tastes are too pedestrian to appreciate that nasty stuff. I am OK with this.

          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

            Now if you tell me you hate Parmesan, we’re gonna take this outside!

          • Waynecro

            I like parmesan. Brie is the fanciest cheese I like.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Are you insulting gyros? I’m hoping the answer is no.

          • Anyone who insults gyros has never had one and/or doesn’t know what a gyro is. There are certain foods that can compete for the title of Ultimate Sandwich and the gyro is one of them.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            They’re so good. Tzatziki is the only condiment better than ranch in my opinion.

          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

            Especially if you make it from scratch, which is really simple, and cheaper than the packaged shit.

          • more beer

            You sir are correct. Also they opened a gyro place on Colfax kind of near the Ogden. They have a drive thru also.

          • That place is legit. I ate there before the Napalm Death show- the food wasn’t as good as, say, Jerusalem, but delish regardless. Better pre-concert fare than Goodtimes.

          • more beer

            You are correct again. The have another one out on Iliff and 225. Where I stop from time to time. I just noticed the Colfax one the other day.

          • Nice. I’ll have to check out the other one too. Since I live pretty close to DU I usually just go to Jerusalem, but apparently there’s also a nice newish Middle Eastern place down in Englewood a few blocks from the Gothic.

          • more beer

            Nice some place to eat near the Gothic besides Moes. The monthly free matinee at Black Sky is this afternoon. If you’re not doing anything.

          • Sundays these days are the afternoon-long grilling, beering, and Game of Thronesing sessions, both fortunately and unfortunately.

          • more beer

            The grill at my house gets put to use three or four times a week. I can got those matinees and still have enough daylight to go home and grill.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Agreed.

  • Dude, I can relate hardcore with your stomach acid problem. Glad you are well again. I had that chronically for a year straight. Gastritis is a bitch. Have a good time on your anniversary!

    • Dubs

      Thanks, dude!

      • I was dumb, and commented on your other comment. Yeah! The Alamo Drafthouse sounds like a good time! I’ve heard good things.

        • Dubs

          Ha. Thanks.

  • Waynecro

    I feel your pain, W. I still swill apple-cider vinegar before meals and carry Tums around with me.

    • Dubs

      It’s just a good reminder to cook my own healthy meals :/

      • Waynecro

        Always a good thing. But, man, I get heartburn even when all I’ve had is healthy food with little to no spice. I blame stress.

        • Dubs

          That sucks, dude!

      • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

        Cheaper, fresher, and you don’t have to deal with all the x factors of eating out. It’s been eons since I’ve sat down and ate out (outside of going to Long John Silver’s for my birthday, which I do every year).

    • I go through a jar of Tums a week. I can’t live without them.

      • Waynecro

        I hear that, man. All I had today is three hard-boiled eggs, and my esophagus is burning. I didn’t even use salt or pepper, goddamnit.

      • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

        I can’t handle them for some reason, same with Alka-Seltzer. I just end up throwing up a huge pile of foam afterwards. So, when acid reflux hits, I just have to ride it out.

      • more beer

        Try Pepcid Complete. They are like 10 bucks for 25 of them. But they work better than any antacid on the market.

    • You and my grandma would get along just fine.

      • Waynecro

        I might even have a linty piece of candy in my pocket.

        • Dubs

          It had better be a Werther’s Original or no deal.

          • Waynecro

            How about jelly beans? I also keep some fun-size Twix in the car. Low blood sugar is a real hazard on long drives.

          • Dubs

            …maybe

          • Waynecro

            Nerds Bumpy Jelly Beans are so good that I sometimes hope for low blood sugar so I can eat them.

          • RJA

            Woah – they have nerds jelly beans? Gotta find me some of those

          • Waynecro

            They’re seasonal, unfortunately. You can only get them around Easter unless you order them online and pay, like, double.

          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16
          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

            Runts or GTFO!

            Not quite sure how it’d actually affect your diabetes, but there’s good sugar free candies out there. Can’t remember any off hand, but I see them at the dollar store all the time.

          • Waynecro

            Sugar-free candy is slightly better than regular candy, though most sugar-free candy still has carbs, which do spike blood sugar. Plus, the sugar alcohols they put in a lot of sugar-free candy can have a laxative effect.

          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

            I saw these earlier while I was out. They’re pretty good on all those ends, and you can find them almost anywhere from what I can tell. I stay away from almost anything with granulated sugar, since that causes my arms and legs to ache, my stomach to fuck up, and jumps my blood sugar up way too quick (something to worry about with hypoglycemia).

            Lol, you’re one of those grandpas from their commercials that sits on the porch and hands those out to the kids?

    • The Tetrachord of Archytas

      I drink apple cider vinegar err morning

    • Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar >>>

  • GOOD: Next week I start my vacation which means only two days of work and then I’m off to Florida to hang with my dad for 5 days. Looking forward to doing some fishing on the ocean and just being in warm weather in general. Also, the weather here has finally gotten nice (Somewhat) which has resulted in lots of bike riding. Tomorrow is supposed to be shitty and cold again though. Bring the summer weather already.

    BAD: Not too much honestly, I have to take my car in for inspection tomorrow which can result in a “Bad” maybe. I hope not, fuck car issues… Seriously.

    UGLY: Well, vacation will be quite nice and all, but it will be the biggest challenge yet for me as a sober individual. My dad loves to drink and being around him is going to be a struggle to say the least (Lots of temptations). I need all of the will power I can stomach. Who know, it might not be as difficult as I’m making it out to be.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Good: Friday obviously.
    Bad: just found out it’s gonna cost me $1200 to fix the central air in my house
    Ugly: see above

    • Dubs

      That suuuucks

    • sweetooth0

      been there, it sucks hard. But what doesn’t suck: central air!

  • nbm02ss

    Good: My sister got married last week in the Keys. Small ceremony, and she’s clearly happy so I’m happy for her. Didn’t hear a single Jimmy Buffet tune.

    Bad: The Keys are ridiculously expensive, and the food sucks; best meal I had down there was pizza at a bar (granted, it was really good pizza). Key West, specifically Duval Street, is perpetual Spring Break for people in their 50s. So much drunken grab ass. I had more fun just riding around on my old Mountain Bike that my parents still had and snapping pics.

    Ugly: I’ve cut down on my drinking quite a bit and last week was a good reminder to myself as to why I did such. Ugh. Also, on one of my adventures biking around I stumbled upon a naked couple having an outdoor adventure who surely thought they were secluded.

    Here’s a pic I took of an abandoned limestone quarry. Not pictured is the aforementioned naked couple I stumbled on earlier:

  • Good: Weekend Nachos show tonight. This will be the first and last time I ever see them and I am most hyped to be going because the show is sold out. Gets Worse and The Afternoon Gentlemen are playing as well. A good night of power violence is on tap. Cross your fingers that I return with all my limbs attached.
    Bad but not that bad: Found out my job are the corporate scum I always knew they were. There’s talk of outsourcing our department and it remains to be seen if that will actually happen. Still looking for work anyway so I hope I get out before the shit goes down.

  • Mother Shabubu

    GOOD: Creativity is starting to blossom thanks to the advice several of you gave me. I’m saving money for once. A cheap car is now within my grasp. With that will come a new job.

    BAD: I feel like the scales are off lately. A weird feeling of emptiness. I’m not even excited for my hockey session starting up next week. I usually look forward to that. Aside from the bleak future, I have nothing to be down in the dumps about.

    UGLY: It’s almost June already. I feel like I’ve done nothing this year. And it’s not hot yet, which means the climate might be fucked. That said, I love the cool and cold weathers.

    • Dubs

      How old are you?

      • Mother Shabubu

        20-something.

        • Dubs

          Ah. I only ask because a lot of young men tend to kind of hit a slump in their early twenties. I felt very similarly about stuff I enjoyed around the end of high school/first few years of college.

          • Mother Shabubu

            That could be. I imagine it’s because in our early to mid twenties we begin to feel the pressures and stresses of the real world.

          • Dubs

            That has a lot to do with it.

    • i feel this. we’re having a little cool spell atm for where im at. dont doubt it, tho. summer is coming

  • RustyShackleford

    GOOD: I graduated from college last weekend and WOOOOOO I’m a real person! I’ve become really passionate about education, so I’m going to take a year off and then head to graduate school, hopefully back in the same English dept (but focusing on film/media/game studies more, it’s just within the English dept). The program is fully funded, which means if I get in I get to go to school and get paid (very little but whatevs) to do so. Which leads me to….

    BAD: I need a fucking job! This is going to sound absurd, but I’ve never had a real job before. It’s not like my resume is empty, I’ve had a lot of volunteer/intern opportunities but never gotten paid very much beyond stipends. I’m mad fortunate because my family has obviously helped me out a ton, but they’re not gonna just support me while I dick around for a year. What the fuck should I do? Seriously, I don’t even know if a fucking Starbucks would hire me 🙁

    UGLY: Jobless Rusty probably?

    • Dubs

      Toilet ov Academia!

    • megachiles

      Congrats on graduating, good on you for taking a break from school, and even more congrats on finding a funded program! From what I hear getting funding in English is really tough.

      Have you thought about working for your city or state? You’re not going to make beaucoup cash, but they often aren’t picky about hiring and need grant /technical writers in a lot of cases, and usually have decent benefits.

      When it comes to job hunting don’t ever sell yourself short, and be willing to “stretch” your experience. For entry level jobs, a well-worded resume & cover letter + good interviewing skills*+positive references can get you places.

      *Good interviewing skills:
      1. dress appropriately,
      2. real life workplace/internship/volunteering experience answers >>>>>> Hypothetical answers
      3. brushing your teeth before the interview
      4. courteousness

      • RustyShackleford

        Thanks man! I did a brief search on city/state jobs hoping for some office gig, but didnt really find much. Could probably do some deeper digging though. Fingers crossed for anything lol

        • Megachiles has some good advice there, especially re not selling yourself short. Much as I hate to recommend them, owing to their bad reputation, a staffing agency might come in handy. A few folks I know have found great jobs through them, I had some nice opportunities offered when I was working with one, and at the very least they can get you a stream of temp gigs to pay the bills and boost the resume until the real deal comes along.

      • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

        Forget all that. THIS is how you do a job interview!

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4rSZP0nNCc

    • Pro Tip: Starbucks will hire anyone.

      (don’t work there)

      • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

        I dunno, I’ve had a few friends who’ve worked there (two that managed) and they liked it. and they tend to hire above minimum wage, so it beats a gig at Walmart or McDonald’s. From what they told me though, they’re very strict and can be pretty fire-happy.

    • work with your hands bro. people like more beer, karhu, and i make the world go round

    • tertius_decimus

      18 lost jobs in 1,5-year timeframe. I have quite an experience, bruh. Trust me. The rule of thumb is not to focus on one opportunity. Knock at every door you can outstretch your hands to. Send your resume to fuck knows how many different places you may contact. Someone will answer your call.

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    Good: I’ve officially talked my way into working part time at a sales job that is typically full time only. Means less slow death from sitting all day and more time for creative shiz
    Bad: I swore off beer for a month or so…not really cause of an alcohol problem but to aid in getting back into shape.
    Ugly: committing to brewing beer tomorrow with friends while not drinking it

        What did you get?

        • Aryan Art split w Crypta Occulta (sp?), Veles’ Black Hateful Metal, and two signed Celestia LPs (Frigidiis and Arachnae)

      • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

        Drakkar Records? I got a T.O.Y cd from them ages ago, which took forever. How that band got signed to a mostly death/black metal label is beyond me.

  • JWEG

    Medical Good Stuff: I have been out of the Hospital for exactly 1 week (plus a half an hour). There have been no major relapses. The new shunt is functioning as hoped. Healing and recovery is going better than expected, apart from a few minor details.

    Mildly bad Medical Goings-On: I made it for almost a week in healing before noticing a minor infection in the scabbing on my abdominal surgical staples. My GP doesn’t work Thursdays (in itself bad, but not actually a complaint about the availability of family physicians – I have one, he just takes Thursday off instead of Sunday) so I had to go to a free clinic and wait 90 minutes to see their doctor. Any blame for how busy those can be goes entirely to the Provincial Government and the College of Physicians for creating so many incentives for specialists, but not nearly enough to attract new GPs, and thinking that free clinics are enough to offset the difference (not even close). There are too many of the former, nowhere near enough of the latter as a result of their mismanagement.

    Anyway. I’m on a pretty heavy antibiotic for the next week, which will overlap when I get the staples out (abdominal and cranial). So I’m kind of pleased by that, because that will cover any risk of re-infection on the day they’re removed.

    Ugly: The look of the scab before it got cleaned up. I was going to take a picture, but I figure you’ve all seen far worse.

    UPDATE:

    GOOD!!!

    • Waynecro

      Fuck yeah! I got that message too. I’m going to be so ready for summer with my sweet TovH tank top.

      • got the tank as well

        • Waynecro

          Buff bois gotta rock the tank.

          • im actually feelin pretty small lately, i hate it

          • Waynecro

            Because of the cut?

          • yeah

          • well ive cut quite a bit of weight the last months and it seems so mich was mass

          • Waynecro

            Sucks, man. I feel your pain. I can’t seem to put on the right kind of size. Drives me nuts.

          • i feel THAT pain

          • Waynecro

            I’m seeing greater definition as I slim down, but I look small. And I know my lifts are going down.

          • at this point in my life i would much prefer mass to definition

          • Waynecro

            I get that. I’d like to get a lot bigger, but I think I need to focus on general fitness for health reasons. We’ll see.

          • meh, im resigned to the belief that im not destined to be around forever. would rather i just be bigger than everyone around me

          • Waynecro

            If I didn’t have a busted pancreas and diabetes, I’d probably go for muscle mass. But the large caloric intake necessary to build mass is no good for insulin-dependent diabetics.

          • yeah man. half my family has diabetes. thats what killed my aunt (and what i expect will kill my other aunt). my day to day is trying to find that balance now

          • Waynecro

            Balance is important, even if it slows down the gains.

          • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

            My hypoglycemia is probably why I can’t get past 150 pounds. Things have gone in and out of my system much much faster since my seizure back in 2001.

          They do have dank food there, buuuuut, we have to go down to Houston next weekend, so we’ll probably forgo this one, mate.

  • sweetooth0

    GOOD: Last day of work before my holiday and MDF next week!!!!! Pre-ordered approx $350 worth of music from Hell’s Headbangers to pick up at the fest, so my merch haul already grows!! 5 Days of not thinking about the rest of shitty life and thinking about nothing but fucking metal here I come!

    BAD: The last day of work before a holiday always draaaaaags, and today is no exception.

    UGLY: I ate a lot of Wendy’s for lunch, so that’s probably going to result in some serious toilet destruction later.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      My globe is turning green with Envy. bring some extra cash to cover baggage fees for your return trip. Have fun bro

  • EsusMoose

    Good: Graduated, gotta find an apartment before I start my job. Weather is nice. Hope by using another router I helped cover more of my parent’s house and speed things up as their router sucks.
    Bad: Ate like shit for a few days in a row now so I feel like garbage. Sucked to move away from friends
    Ugly: I’m wanting Chinese food so after that I may feel ugly.

  • GOOD: This week is almost over, my girlfriend’s car isn’t totalled and the old lady’s insurance company paid for her rental. I saw Dying Fetus, The Acacia Strain, Jungle Rot, Black Crown Initiate, Systemhouse33, and Torn The Fuck Apart on Wednesday and it fucking ruled. I talked with BCI’s vocalist and name dropped Stocky and the TovH. Got my glasses knocked off my face while i was standing on the side of the pit and found them miraculously unharmed at the back of the pit.
    BAD: Everyone at work today has been asking me to essentially do their fucking jobs for them. Figure your own shit out. I’m not your personal tech support, I have my own shit to do.
    UGLY: The BO drenched anti-social neckbeards that show up to death metal shows. It’s like stewing in a sauna full of unbathed swamp creatures.

    • sweetooth0

      mad luck on the glasses. Many a pair saw their demise in pits before I got the laser surgery a couple years ago.

      • sweetooth0

        I’ve literally watched them projectile launch off of my face into a blur of feet. They were not seen again.

    Good: I tuned my drums yesterday so they are extra sharp and loud and those damn teenagers next door who spend all day smoking pot in their garage will have to put up with this shit.
    Bad: Today was the last day with a contract project and I found out my boss on that gig has terminal cancer. :-/
    Ugly: I watched so many Epicardiectomy videos that my immune system wore down; now I have caught a mild virus and am sick. I blame the Toilet for introducing me to wigger slam.

    (Anniversary note: if you’re in Austin, spouse and I went to Alcomar on S. 1st Street last night for our anniversary and it’s a great spot.)

    Good: New DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Plus, I got this awesome little automatic crossbow from the game’s black market, and it makes a sweet “THWIP” sound when you fire it.
    Bad: I have to go to a birthday party for a friend of the family on Saturday. There will be “cute and fun games for couples.” Never before have I been so pleased to be single.
    Ugly: My heartfelt sing-along with Katatonia’s “Old Heart Falls” in the car last night.

    • i just miss Sticks & Stones 🙁

      • Waynecro

        I just like Team Deathmatch.

        • we only ever rocked party games

          • Waynecro

            There’s a mode in which you have to escort a robot to the other side of the map (or stop the other team from doing so). It’s pretty cool, but I prefer a simpler objective when I’m trying to unwind.

          • mannnnn i cant stand escort quests

          • Waynecro

            Me neither, but fucking up the other team’s robot is pretty fun.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Gotta love it when you return to a game that you haven’t played in a while with all of your old gear and everyone treats you like Gandalf.

      • Waynecro

        I got 25 kills with the crossbow (a secondary weapon) in a match last weekend, and someone sent me a nasty message on Xbox Live.

        • Dave Vincent’s Perm

          I usually respond to that shit by asking them if they’d like to discuss their quandary over a mug of tea. Sorts it out pretty quickly.

          • Waynecro

            Maybe I’ll try that sometime. I usually just ignore them.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Good: Diamond Head and Blackfoot are coming to my area, got paid yesterday.

    Bad: My love life

    Ugly: My love life. I mean how on earth can someone have as bad of a love life as me?

    • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

      There’s worse out there. You could have Phil Hartman’s love life, or John Bobbit’s!

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        That is true.

  • The Good: this girl (RFI)

    The Bad: not applicable.

    The ugly: see the bad.

    You all have a great weekend!

    GL

    • Dubs

      Same to you, GL.

    • Ugly: see the good. FTFY

      jk, she’s freaking adorable, bruh.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Awwwwwwww.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Another good: my family is having a party on Sunday and I invited my friend. Hopefully she can make it. I’m calling out “sick” for this.

  • CT-12
  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    Bad: forgetting that it’s Friday and not commenting on the flush it post

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Also bad: sitting down to revise for all the A-level exams you have in the next two weeks, then spending an hour doing Tom G. Warrior poses in the mirror.

      • Angus McMoobieFart ’16

        And doing the ‘Uh!’ noise when you’re on the toilet? Uh-plop!

  • The Good: This part of spring is one of my favorite and all-too-short parts of the year. Just gorgeous. First Fragment’s new album shreds, and my experimental batch of makgeolli (traditional Korean rice beer) came out excellently, if much more alcoholic than I had intended. Thing almost blew up in the fridge as it just wouldn’t stop carbonating. Better check it again right now, actually.

    The Bad: Despite momentary thrills like those outlined above, by and large it’s hard to enjoy really anything these days. I don’t have the attention span to listen to music the way I want, and when I’m not working I often just wander around the house trying to think of something to do. The cause is clear, the solution not immediately forthcoming.

    The Ugly: Part of working in publishing is having to deal with gross sex scenes or just icky body part stuff in general. This week was no exception. Among the grossness I reviewed were: Catholic sex abuse (whatthefuck), chicken bladders being placed into nether regions to simulate virginity (historically based but whatthefuckingfuck), and folks getting boned by Louis XIV (people didn’t shower back then, so ew). Has your weekend been ruined? You’re welcome.

    Hope everyone has an incredible two days off! May it be filled with riffs and relaxation.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I’m so sorry.

    Lick brush = GAH!!!!!! Not available in any state with animal cruelty/bestiality laws.

    The Good: Chill week, as usual. And the new Gojira song isn’t half bad, even though it sounds exactly like every other song they’ve done since the beginning. And thinking about grabbing the newest Aesthetische next week (not direct from the label, though. Long story on that one, but fuck them).

    The Bad: Nothing much, really. Things are on a definite upswing. Ummmmmmm Howls Of Ebb was really really really really really really fucking awful.

    The WTF?!?!?!: Failure For Blogs was actually mentioned on a legitimate news site/channel?!?! (Al Jazeera, when they were talking about Obama praising Finland for it’s metal bands). I’m not sure if this is even worse than their days as jihad TV way back when.

    Bad: Wilbur from Mr. Ed died, and has joined Ed in that big glue factory in the sky. Damn you, 2016!

    • more beer

      He was 96. That’s a pretty good run.

  • Dagon

    Thanks for all the love in the past couple years.
