MAILMANBRO VII: THE HAUL AWAKENS

Long ago in a mailbox far, far away…

There is unrest in the household. Record boxes pile up on the porch and the mailbox overflows with parcels containing patches and cassettes.

Eagerness overtakes the inhabitant of the house, the keyboard clacks and the mouse scrolls until more packages are ordered. Limited edition pressings are purchased, special colored variants are bought. Nothing can stop this addiction of the consumer. Another patch for the jacket, another CD for the shelf. The collection is ever-growing and extensions must be put on the house, but the purchaser never ceases. One by one they amass their shrine to the gods.

Dio and Lemmy will surely be pleased. “Just one more piece, just one more piece,” the collector utters.


Karhu, being the mighty Beargod that he is, shows his eclectic haul with classics from King Diamond, DOOM from Dopethrone, skulls from Ranger and Dubbbz’s favorite Iron Maiden album.

JJD proves that we don’t know shit about Dad-Rock like he does with Little Feat albums.

JAG scored an array of cassettes from Saint Vitus to Napalm Death, posters from Meshuggah and Sabaton and a CD containing one of the best solo debuts of all time.

        I still need to listen to it! Haven’t had the chance yet.

        • Mythical & Magical is great. I do have that one! I thought you picked that up last year though.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Got that copy for my dad.

    • Howard Dean

      The best Immortal album and my second favorite Enslaved album (after Eld). Plus that sweet Sextrash reissue on CD and Nuke! Byaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!

        Brand new actually. Osmose reissued a bunch of shit. I’m still kicking myself for not getting Samael’s Worship Him.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          With the shiny cover? I picked up the silver vinyl a while back.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            No clue.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            But, um. You took a picture of it…

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Oh, I thought you were asking WHY it was shiny. Yup, it’s the shiny cover.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Haha, gotcha, that makes more sense now. I also got the reissue of At The Heart of Winter around that same time. I was hoping they’d do the rest in grey/silver but it doesn’t look like it.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      I need to pick Frost up too!

    • I should be getting my Nuke vinyl next month.

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        Same! I’m looking forward to it.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      • Señor Jefe El Rosa

        And this glorious non music related poster

  • Waynecro

    Excellent scores as always, dudes! I got this sweet book about black metal and a shirt for the new Hannes Grossmann album recently. I should be getting new speakers for my garage gym today, and a new Decapitated hoodie is probably on its way. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0a59d5588eca4b93a9f66d5dd769e9a62c7a478dfdb7713ad73394122213012c.jpg

    • Abradolf Lincler

      got back on cycle after moving and the forearm/wrist injury from before we moved, so i did shoulders an triceps(my go-to workout) two days ago. i tried to do chest, triceps shoulders again yesterday. i literally CANNOT move my arms above my chest. hoping this bourbon will help

      • Waynecro

        I bet bourbon can help minimize the pain of DOMS–at least temporarily. I’m still fucking around with high-rep sets. Yesterday, I did 5 sets of 20 squats with about 40 percent of my one-rep max. I can barely walk up the stairs, but I still have to sprint tonight. It’s brutal. I’ve also been using my bench to isolate my shoulders during lateral raises. Now I’m feeling it in only my shoulders instead of also in my back and traps. It’s pretty sweet.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          very awesome, though i recommend a mixture (to strengthen support/auxillary muscles). like i told you before, shoulder day is no joke.

          • Waynecro

            I hit my shoulders three days a week, so I use a variety of lifts, weights, and rep ranges. My left shoulder is still giving me problems, so I’m not going too heavy until it recovers completely. I’ve also noticed that I seem to respond pretty well to higher rep ranges (10 to 20). I hadn’t gone really heavy for a while because of injuries, but I tested my deadlift for the first time in about three months the other day, and my one-rep max was up by 40 pounds. I couldn’t believe it.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            hi rep will help your burst over time. whereas the 5-8 range tends to work better for me, i work legs the way you do (more of a cardio feel, because i drive all day long, trying to avoid an embolism). i spend at least two days specifically focusing shoulders triceps and shoulders back, usually.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i learned lunges and 1-leg dips (squats) are my new fav shit for legs

          • Waynecro

            I’m partial to Romanian/Bulgarian split squats myself.

          • Owlswald

            Pistols will also roast your legs. Great secondary leg exercise along with Romanian deadlifts.

          • Waynecro

            I’m hoping to get to the point at which I can just drop into a pistol squat or become a human flag at the drop of a hat.

          • Waynecro

            That’s why I’m surprised I built so much strength using high reps. I thought cutting the really heavy lifting for several months was going to kill my lifts, but it’s actually helped them.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            its all about shock and muscle memory, as you know

          • Waynecro

            I also noticed that working out all the time is a fantastic mood enhancer. I had to go five days without working out recently, and I felt like a pile of suicidal garbage. Apparently, the only antidepressant I need is IRON, BRO!

          • Abradolf Lincler
          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            I’ve always been more of a STEEL guy myself.

          • Same. Directly related to my mood. In the gym I can be victorious about something, even those small wins elevate the mood.

  • RJA

    Trying to spend less recently – quite hard. Did get the vinyl reissues of the first six cure albums though – very nice.

  • That’s a lot of great music you all have over there! 😀

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Haven’t picked up any music recently, but a few weeks ago had a sweet DVD haul, Things (1989), Sledgehammer (1983), Horrors of Malformed Men, Lucker: The Necrophagous and The Gestapo’s Last Orgy.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    all my moneys havent been going to vinyl for the last two months or so, so no hauls for me. maybe in the next couple weeks

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Moving will do that

      • Abradolf Lincler

        prepare for incoming vest update before friday

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          I’ll show you mine if you show me your’s…

          • Abradolf Lincler

            turns out sewing is not the forte for a big man

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Haha, it is something to get used to for sure. Gotta suffer for the art though

      • RJA

        Just went to buy – sold out! no shit!

        • FUCK! That was fast. It just went up today.

          • RJA

            Oh well – I did get a copy of that Forbidden Citadel of Spirits, which went as fast as I’ve ever seen!

          • Yeah, that was the same day that Broken Spirit LP sold out. Was able to pick that up fortunately. I should have picked that up too. LLN worship at its finest.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            that too sold out quick

          • Abradolf Lincler

            i missed it toooooo :(:(

  • Waynecro

    I should also mention that my brother and his girlfriend sent me this irresponsibly creepy doll for some reason. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f8cfbabeca2741a1fd07cea696b82f2fee7d583af99a3f8093f326ed7cd94c5c.jpg

    • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

      That’s the sort of thing I’d lock up/prefer not to be in the same house as.

      • Waynecro

        I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with it. Scare my roommate?

        • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

          That sounds like a good idea…

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Holy shit!

      • Waynecro

        Do you like her? Do you want to give her a forever home?

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          That was more of a “holy shit, i hope to never see that creepy doll ever again in my life, what the hell is someone doing giving this to our future president”

          That and my wife would strangle me in my sleep if I brought something home of that nature.

          • Waynecro

            Yeah, I thought so. I think I’ll just start leaving the doll in different places around the house and see how long it takes my roommate to notice and freak out.

          • Señor Jefe El Rosa

            Please keep us updated.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      fucking burn that thing

      • Waynecro

        If my dog finds it, he’ll probably tear it apart.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          i would tear that thing apart.

    • The Conjuring 3: Fountains of Waynecro

      • Waynecro

        I’d pay a dollar to see that, but I’ll probably be living it.

        • Well yes. That was what I was trying to convey with that poorly constructed joke. (I heard Fountains of Wayne on the radio today for the first time in 20 years and have been dying to slip it into a joke all day.)

          • Waynecro

            I had totally forgotten that Fountains of Wayne is a thing. I’m Waynecro, and I approve your joke.

          • Wish I had forgotten that Fountains of Wayne was a thing 🙁 instead I have to remember those stupid songs

      • This was rill good Richter

    • Count_Breznak

      Place it in the guest bathroom, above the door, facing the throne, so they’ll only see it when they are already sitting.

      • Waynecro

        There’s a mirror in that bathroom. I could place the doll so a person sees it in the mirror after he or she sits down.

        • Count_Breznak

          Can you make it look like it is right behind them, sort of looking over their shoulder ? That would be perfect.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Need to get that Vanhelgd record

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Exit Stage Left is such a good live album. It’s the best live album Rush ever did.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Also when it comes to the Little Feat albums in my haul they are all from after Lowell George died. Representing The Mambo and Shake It Up have Craig Fuller as his replacement while Under The Radar and Chinese Work Songs have Shaun Murphy replace him.

    • Abradolf Lincler

      white people problems

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I never said the post-Lowell albums were bad. The Shaun Murphy ones are quite good actually. The Craig Fuller albums are also pretty good. The Lowell George albums are some of the best rock albums ever written though and their live album Waiting For Columbus is my number 2 live album ever next to Strangers In The Night by Phil Mogg, Michael Schenker, Pete Way, Andy Parker and Paul Raymond aka Unidentified Flying Object.

  • Bunk Moreland

    That Wormrot hat is one cool muthafuckin fashion accessory!
