Howdy folks. We’re making a couple of changes with our posting schedule ’round here and I want to keep you all abreast (hehehehe).

Every person that writes for Toilet Ov Hell has a job, or goes to school, or does one of those things while juggling a family. We don’t get paid to blog/shill like a certain pair of basement dwelling nerds. We want to continue to create quality posts that we are passionate about, rather than making a mad rush to just get *something* out into the ether. We all enjoy creating content for this site, but it can be very taxing to write enough posts to fill our existing schedule. So we’re changing the schedule to make things a little easier for us and hopefully you, the reader.

Since the site launched, we’ve run a minimum of five posts a day. Starting tomorrow we will run a minimum of four posts a day. New content will go live at these times:

  • 9 AM CST
  • 11 AM CST
  • 1 PM CST
  • 3 PM CST

 


ALSO, I’d like to get some basic demographic data on just who you people are. I’ve put up a (very) short survey here and it would be pretty cool if you filled it out. Thank you in advance!

 

Feel free to let me know that I’m a lazy jerk below. Or use it to suggest new recipes! It’s an Open Swim!

  • Edward Meehan

    Positive changes all around. I also took the short survey!

    • Edward Meehan

      Although, hey, not to sound like a complainer or anything, having a toilet background and white pages with no border is kind of hard to look at.

      • No worries. We’re still making a few changes yet!

        • Edward Meehan

          Byah!

        • YourLogicIsFlushed

          If you get stuck at any point let me know!

      • I LIKE IT.

        • Edward Meehan

          Well that’s all that matters.

          =)

          • Awwwwww.

          • You stop that lifeloving right this minute.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I see that you haven’t embraced the beautiful nothingness of nihilism.

          • No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there’s nothing to be afraid of

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You have Big Lebowski quotes for every situation?

          • the dude abides

          • W.

            That’s because there is a Big Lebowski quote for every situation.

          • Stockhausen

            I say “A lot of ins, a lot of outs, a lot of what-have-yous” at least once a day.

  • Randall Thor

    I’M NOT TAKING YOUR SURVEY, I’M NOT A PART OF YOUR SYSTEM.

    I’M AN ADDULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLT

    • Tyree

      I did it.

    • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

      Ok then don’t complain when the toilet starts serving you ads for babymetal concerts

    • Jormungandr

      ..

    • Stockhausen

      AND THEY TASED ME IN THE BUTTHOLE!

  • The survey is worth it because there’s an ad at the end with a really cute dog.

    • It is a very good puppy. Yes it is.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      What? I did not get that ad!

      • you get to see two really cute doges every day!

        • Metaphysical Anus

          You have a good point there, friendo.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          ………..

  • Tyree

    Are those children selling cocaine?

    • Edward Meehan

      Ha, they do look like bricks.

      • Tyree

        Totally, it’s like ring ring ring get your fucking cocaine ya’ll!

        • Edward Meehan

          Plus the kid on the left is dressed kinda like a sleazy 70s Summer of Sam cocaine dealer.

          • Tyree

            Ha, he definitely has a wedgie too.

        • Metaphysical Anus

          You would know about stuff like this…

          • Tyree

            Those shorts are above is belly button brah. He just looks uncomfortable, then again he is high on cocaine.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            I meant that you would know about cocaine stuff.

          • Tyree

            I know all.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Then you know what are the names of my two dogs?

          • Tyree

            You are not real, for then your dogs are not real, because Finland is not real.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            What if none of us are real? What if we’re all your imagination?

          • ………

          • Metaphysical Anus

            Day comes before month in civilized countries!
            12/4/14 etc.

          • there’s no fucking reason for that, you elitist bastard! if you want to sort a column of dates — say in Libre Office — you need the month to come first. (not really mad of course)

          • Gurp

            This is ‘murca. We don’t abide by none of that sissy “civil-i-zation” Euro nonsense.

          • Xan

            I’ve always thought that the day should have come before the month. I tortured my teachers by putting as such. It makes sense to me. You order it by units of increasing size.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I never thought of it that way.

          • Xan

            The metric system uses logic like that (though I don’t think that time is in the metric system, though I may be wrong). Everything can be divided by ten or one hundred. It is the better system but I’ve already grown up using the American system to it is difficult for me to think in metric. The one portion I don’t agree with is the use of celsius for human temperature. Water boiling at 100 and freezing at 0 is easy to remember and is useful for water but has no real relevance to gauge comfortable human temperature. Fahrenheit gives a larger scale. You generally won’t survive long above 100 or below 0 in fahrenheit. There are more numbers so you can have a greater range of temperature which then makes it easier to adjust it minutely for comfort levels. Most people seem to enjoy around 70-75 fahrenheit whereas I prefer 50-60 fahrenheit. Each degree in celsius translates to 1.8 (essentially 2) in degrees in fahrenheit.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Its tough to relearn something that’s been engrained in you. I would hate to lose gallons and miles to.

          • Lacertilian

            Most countries used imperial prior to switching. Switching impacts most on the older generation, then to all subsequent generations it would be the norm. Also, it is logical base 10 stuff that is much easier to transpose across measurement units.

          • Lacertilian

            They are just stubborn or ignorant.
            Same reason they are stuck using antiquated systems such as the imperial system, instead of metric.
            Along with Burma & Liberia, they’re the only ones left using that useless shit.
            Green = Metric
            Grey = Imbecilic

          • Metaphysical Anus

            All (except for Americans) hail the metric system!

          • Howard Dean

            You forgot Antartica!

            Also: Fight Me.

          • Lacertilian

            Antarctica is not a country, it’s a continent, filled with scientists, and even United States scientists use metric.

          • Howard Dean

            I never claimed that Antarctica is a country, because believe it or not, I’m not retarded. In fact, a lot of people in the U.S. are not retarded, contrary to the opinions of elitist fucks the world over. I was pointing out that you didn’t include that continent in your comprehensive rundown of who is backward/stupid and who is not. I was “taking a piss” at your expense, to use a worldly parlance you might appreciate, because you represent every shred of the elitist anti-U.S. sentiment that is so trite and tired at this point. For all of our faults (and I know there are many), we are not all a bunch of lumbering, atavistic numbskulls bent on eating fast food and conquering the world with our fundamental Christianity and rash stupidity.

          • Lacertilian

            I know you were joking, that’s why I offered a smart-arse reply to keep the riposte going.
            I am not anti-US, I am pro-metric.

            Also: it’s ‘taking the piss’

          • Howard Dean

          • Lacertilian

          • Tyree

            Lol, I was just fucking with Anus. Sorry if you though I was being serious.

          • Mother Shabubu III

            C’mon, you should know me by now. I’m almost never serious.

          • Tyree

            I’m an idiot. Lol.

          • Metaphysical Anus

            You were being too rough. I may have anal fiasures now.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Sup Mr. Ass, that sounds painful.

          • Xan

            WRONG, PEASANT! The meaning to life is to crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women.

        Did somebody mention bricks?! I LOVE SELLING BLOW!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtW6HW8jO_U

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

    Quality Content is KING. Survey done.

  • Survey done. I ALSO GOT A CUTE PUPPY PICTURE AS A REWARD. POPPA JOE LOVES ME.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      That’s it! I’m never doing another survey because I don’t get pictures of cute dogs!

    • Tyree

      Bummer, I missed this so called puppy.

    • Xan

      I too got to view the adorable creature.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      It was so adorable.

  • God

    Quality posts > more posts any day

    • Mother Shabubu III

      No posts > posts about the top ten nu metal records you NEED to have.

      • Stockhausen

        But how will I know??

        • Mother Shabubu III

          Just take a few sips of bleach. It’s about the same experience.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Damnit, I love nu metal! It got me into heavier stuff and I didn’t like the big artists. I liked artists who are now completely forgotten.

          • I always thought Draiman’s best song was the one on the soundtrack for The Queen of the Damned.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            That was a good soundtrack.

          • W.

            To quote Pickles, “No! Drink the bleach!”

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I could write a good article about that. Trust me, there would be no artists like Slipknot or Korn on that list. The best nu metal is the really underground stuff that released one album in their time as a band.

        • Mother Shabubu III

          3rd Strike? Trik Turner? Darwin’s Waiting Room? lol

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Those do sound good but I’m going more obscure that that. Ever heard of Factory 81 or Union Underground?

          • Mother Shabubu III

            I saw them in related videos when I looked up some of the nu metal crap I listened to in like 5th-7th grade.

            PS: Unless I’m getting tortured, I will never admit to have listened to some of these bands.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            There’s even more obscure bands than what I said on the list.

          • Simon Phoenix

            Project 86 would also be a good band to start with. I feel they were pretty underrated.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I would have added them had I seen this post earlier but I sent the article already. There is some very obscure stuff in there.

        • i would read this article about which you speak.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I’m going to probably write it. There’s a lot of stuff out there that people should hear from the genre that isn’t known.

    • baby metal posts >>>>>>>>>>>>

  • I have trouble keeping up with 5 posts a day when I get busy, so this is actually helpful.

  • More newz plz.

    • To be honest, I haven’t heard much newsworthy stuff in the last two weeks.

      • There’s plenty of shit being announced, but that’s the problem, it’s shit.

      • crazytaco_12

        Something that I’d like to see on here is “best of MS and other metal sites, so you don’t have to” where we take the best news (such as Pallbearer announcing dates) from other sites and have it all in one article on here, and can avoid any babymetal rage

        • They would likely get really pissed about that. Could be worthwhile!

    • I’m looking everywhere. Nothing worthy of the toilet lately.

  • Metaphysical Anus

    This is good for my sleep as well.

  • Xander Crews

    Ugggh! In 15 more days my demo goes up to 30-39….survey complete.
    *vomits
    *realizes there’s like $150 of painkillers in the vomit
    *………………..
    *eats vomit

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      Just for you.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Survey taken. Now I’m going to eat a prawn curry and then get high and listen to Blut Aus Nord.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      I hope that pre-order comes sooooooooooon!

    • Edward Meehan

      Uh, how’d you get Blut Aus Nord so quickly?

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        Not the newie, just MoRT. Don’t have much time to listen to music on weekdays like I used to so just sitting down to any quality album is all the more exciting for me.

        • Gurp

          I have a feeling I’m going to be getting depressingly familiar with this predicament.

          • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

            On the plus side I find it does make the music a lot more intense.

    • is it the new one? if so you gotta share with the rest of the class

  • I have a few ideas for things I could write up (in between work, school, family and reading other TovH posts, of course), but would like to know if there’s any interest in them.

    One would be RiverLethe’s Float Down Memory Lane–it would be me taking a look back at artists that I loved back in the day, how they put me on my journey towards more extreme metal, and whether they are still listenable today; if they aren’t, then I would suggest something modern to cleanse the palette.

    The second would be based on the popularity of the Magic the Gathering post over on FFB last year. I have become a huge tabletop game nerd, so I could review a tabletop game and suggest what metal music might go along with the theme of said game.

    I also have a degree in philosophy, so I could write about a particular -ism and match it with some metal.

    • I have begging everyone around me for years to sit down and learn how to play D&D or Pathfinder with me….still no takers. guess they’re all too cool to fight goblins and dragons.

      • My gaming is now exclusively board/card games because I no longer have the time for RPGs, and only one of my friends wanted to play D&D; whereas I can get everyone to play the other games.

        • Metaphysical Anus

          I would play board games, but I got no one to play with. Instead I watch Beer And Board Games on youtube.

          • Many board game developers are starting to make app or Steam versions of their games!

          • W.

            My wife bought me Dominion for my birthday. Have you guys ever played that? We also like to play Catan and Acquire.

          • Settlers of Catan is good for killing beers and being overly polite by not building too close to your neighbors. really enjoy that game when i get people to play.

          • W.

            You’re the nicest Catan player I’ve ever encountered.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Catan is amazing, but not as good as Cards Against Humanity. I love Cards Against Humanity.

          • I haven’t played Dominion yet, but it’s on my list. I hear it is a good gateway game to get other people into that stuff.

        • I’m mainly sticking to the PC games, if i’m not playing GTA V or Red Dead on my 360. But recently i started playing Shadowrun Returns and it’s pretty much a table top RPG in a PC game…i’m really enjoying the combat. If only wars could be fought using turn based combat.

          • Sight Vnseen

            Yeah dude. Good call. You can get Baldurs Gate on phones now. What a time to be alive.

          • I have fond memories of the Shadowrun game on the Sega Genesis! I never could get a Shadowrun RPG group past character creation though, but I love the world. There’s a new deck drafting game out called Shadowrun Crossfire that I plan to check out.

      • W.

        I learned D&D this summer. The guy I was playing with was super excited to get new players, but then he got a girlfriend.

        • Stockhausen

          So there is hope for D&D dorks?

          • W.

            Yup!

          • I always did alright despite my nerdery. But I do have to say, being a nerd nowadays? Holy shit I would’ve cleaned up back then if it was like it is now!

      • We played Dungeons & Dragons for three hours! Then I was slain by an elf 🙁

    • W.

      I like those ideas! And I’m a fan of board games. I like the idea of table top games, but I don’t have the time or capital to get started in something like Warhammer. That said, I know there are a bunch of warhammer nerds around these parts.

      • African jumping sticks fan right here! Can I get a shout out? *hears the crickets*

      • Scrimm

        I like the idea of how the Lovecraft Ezine played the Call of Cthulhu role playing game online on Friday nights. I would have joined in but Friday is our main practice.

    • I’d be interested in a gaming-related post, personally. I’m pretty unfamiliar with that world so I think it would be interesting.

  • Cock of Steele

    I took that survey seriously! (And I don’t normally take surveys seriously)

    PS: Music news is good, but I always like a healthy dose of either controversial stuff or anything that will get a real good comments section going. I always enjoy our humorous banters.

    • Howard Dean

      I actually took it seriously, too. I usually write ridiculously shit to intentionally skew results or to piss off the surveyor. The Toilet has made me an honest man.

  • I like the idea of less content. “WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT MCNULTY?!?!” simple, this site detracts from my work. i want to read every article, hang out in every comments section, see what the crazy Finns have to say, etc. by the time i catch up on all the comments, a new article is already up.
    since day 1, the content has been pure rocketballs, it’s the best site on the internet. thanks Papa Joe!

    • crazytaco_12

      It’d also be nice because I always have way too much shit to listen to after coming here

      • Sponge Of Mystery

        speaking of that, im just gonna leave this hear…
        http://laceratedenemyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/konkeror-the-abysmal-horizons

        • Scrimm

          I actually own 3 copies of that album.

          • Sponge Of Mystery

            ……ur a legend

          • Scrimm

            Nope just used to sell cd’s I have those left over.

          • Sponge Of Mystery

            noice, i just ordered that album yesterday. Lacerated Enemy Records has put out some awesome shit this year

          • Scrimm

            Yes but they are slooooooooooooow to ship.

    • NefariousDude

      I’m in the same boat. It’s a 2 person dingy with a half eaten bag of bacon jerky and a bucket of warm amber bock

    • Metaphysical Anus

      I’m pretty fucking sure that I don’t have any mental disorders!

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      work shmerk, i don’t know what you do to have so much time on the net during work as it is ! Seems kind of shady McNulty. You must be the man in charge.

    • Mother Shabubu III

      I hate being late to the posts here because it is almost impossible to get a word in edgewise.

      • That’s EXACTLY why I’m working on the forums right now. I should have everything fixed there in the next few days.

        • Gurp

          Will the forum get as much traffic? As it is, it’s not the most visible part of the site.

          • Yeah, the forum sucks wicked hard right now. As soon as I finish I’m going to push it on everyone.

      • W.

        We’ve tried to take some steps to cut down on some of the clutter in the comments, and we’re hoping the forums will help too.

  • NefariousDude

    Even though I’m just a lurker for the most part I’m really stoked to see this community continue to grow. Well done fellas.

    • Metaphysical Anus

      I always like to see your bra.

      • NefariousDude

        I’m touched <3

  • Quarter Ounce Harrell

    Let me introduce you to something new. I love these shit.

  • Survey completed sir!

  • are my survey answers going to be used on Family Feud?

    • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

      No just contextual retargeting of advertising from that certain porn site that you’re ashamed of visiting

  • Max

    It doesn’t matter how few posts per day there are as long as the quality stays the same as it is (or increases). The commenting community is a big part of TovH (it had its genesis in another blog’s commenting section); so as long as there is at least one post a day, about something that can get some sort of conversational ball rolling, we’re probably as well-served as we need to be.

    (This, of course, is assuming you aren’t aiming for massive traffic growth – in which case you’d probably want to disregard everything I’ve said.)

    Please publish the results of the survey; I’m interested.

    • the strength of the Toilet is the friendship we all share. a given article in here can gain 200+ comments! that only happens once in a blue moon on other sites (and the article has to be super controversial).
      i think we all need to have a big group hug.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        *gets confused, shoots you all in knees by accident*

        • KJM

          It’s okay. We’ll live.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I agree we need to have a big group hug. We could fly Mr. Anus in and just have a big group hug in the middle of Times Square or somewhere cool like that.

  • Gurp

    Hey Joe Hey Joe,
    Is there a template somewhere for someone interested in writing for the site?

    • Just deposit $1000 (admittance fee) on my bank account and I’ll send it to you

      • Stockhausen

        Blake??

      • Max

        I’ll get my credit card. I think my Nigerian girlfriend borrowed it to go shopping.

    • There’s no template per se. The easiest way to get started is to shoot me an email at toiletovhell@gmail.com. We’re always looking for folks that have interesting ideas to write about and decent writing skills!

      • Gurp

        Alright. I’ll start typing up a rough draft. And get some screenshots together. Thanks Joe.

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        This site is a lot of fun. I’ve posted a few times on FFB a few times but it wasn’t much fun. Here I made some friends, had some laughs. Its all friendly. I can argue with Conan about the greatness of Danzig 5 and have MasterLord tell me I’m not a true warrior (if loving power metal names you a warrior I’d rather be a peasant). It’s real neat that you will give members of this community the opportunity to post. Thanks.

  • Xan

    Question Joe (with a slight preface): I had to close my email due to it being hacked but I managed to reopen it with the same address but I no longer have your email address for article submissions. I submitted three posts about a month ago and I’m not sure they get put up for review/editing due to internet issues I was having. Should I resubmit them or are they still there?

  • Sorry for not posting, everyone else at the office went on a road trip and I was left doing chores. At least I can listen to Baroness at full volume now.

    Open swim!! Uuuhhhh, think, think, think, ummm, I had something for this, uuuhhhh, ummmnn, airline food, uuhhhh, do you guys ever think about Jenga?

  • DeeSnarl

    God I love talking about myself.

    The site is going swell so far. Both the articles and the comments don’t make me shake my head at the dearth of humanity like FFB or many other sites do, because they are both quality content shared amongst companions, and if other people gaze upon it and enjoy it too then so much the better. It really is a good feeling.

    All I would suggest is continue to focus on quality articles and not page hits like you said. If the content is good the views will come anyway.

    I’m still working on my idea for an action film column. Shit is a lot harder than I thought, but I already have two films brewing in my head for writing. In the meantime I have another band write-up nearly finished.

    Goddamnit. RIP Sean, you were the best thing about the dying days of WCW.

      That is such a damned shame. Unfortunately, that Yahoo article leaves out the worst part. The cause of death was Suicide. : (

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        He committed suicide on suicide awareness day, which was yesterday.

    I feel like I should have saved the giant Satan statue with a massive boner for the Open Swim. Hopefully this embedded video works on its own:

    So this site is totally sick. I read Metalsucks for a long time and I ultimately started to go there just for the comment section. Over time I watched you guys turn into digital internet bros and then followed you all over to Toilet ov Hell. I have been something of a creepy wallflower observing this community for a very long time, mostly just because I am not big on leaving comments. I am really impressed with the quality of writing on this site as well as its originality and open spirit of cooperation. Anyway, I am an academic writing teacher and would gladly volunteer some of my time editing/producing content if it were needed. It would be the least I could do for you guys, who have provided me with my new favorite metal blog.

    • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

      Love your discus name bro

    • Welcome dude!

    • W.

      Welcome! We’d be happy to have you on board. There are a few of us here in the academic world as well.

    • Sheeeeeeeeeeeit, I gave Metal Sucks about 2 weeks before I simply gave up on it’s regurgitated news stories and mongloid journalism before I came over to here.

    • The Satan Ov Nvklear Hell

      My only problem with the toilet is because it’s so high quality, I can’t make any witty or snide comments towards writers.

      • TrickleDownTacoRiff

        I miss that as well. Great point man. I enjoyed the way we all jumped in too, it was fun.

    • Dëpütÿ Dïpshït

      This brought tears to my eyes. That was as beautiful as your name. Welcome to the Royal Flush; Toilet ov Hell!

    • hi there!!!

    • guest

      took the words right outta my mouth!

  • Lacertilian

    Survey done.
    I’m that one arsehole from Australia fucking up your demographic counts.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      I finished up the survey as well.

    • Max

      Nope. You’re one of at least three.

      • Lacertilian

        Well then, a G’day is in order!

        • Max

          Bonzer republic, cobber. Stone the bloody crows.

          • Lacertilian

            So you’re a fair-dinkum ridgy-didge cobber digger, mate.
            Tops.

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    Since this is open swim, I went to the record store near me and bought four cassettes, the cassettes being an Aerosmith cassette, two Toto cassettes and a White Lion cassette. They had a King Kobra cassette but I already own a copy of it. I’ve also found Beatles albums in the mystery bag they sell. I found two albums they were selling at 25 dollars and 40 dollars in two 3 dollar bags.

    • Doood…Toto rocks….i never tire of Africa.

      • W.

        Nor do I.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I love Toto as well. Their music never gets old, even their crappy albums never get old.

    • okay, i’m just curious here. you seem to be a jack-of-all-trades music fan. i’ve heard you mention almost every band possible from every genre.
      how old are you?

      site note: ever had King Cobra beer?

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        I’m 19. I know a lot about music and I’ve only really gotten into it in the past 3 years.

        • wholly shit mang.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I learned of some more nu metal bands for my article that I didn’t already know. I feel the article was well written and all the albums and bands are very unknown. I’m going to submit it.

      • I have, many a time! Not nearly as bad as Stack, Steel Reserve (who now has a grape flavor, which I’m afraid to ever taste), Axe Head and all those other high gravity beers. King Cobra tastes mostly like water to me, same with Koqi and Magnum.

  • old_man_doom

    You da best, Joe.

    Open Swim huh? I’ll take a moment to plug Graviton’s “Massless” album. I’ve rockin’ it for a solid two weeks straight. Particle physics has never been so fucking metal. Plus, the band is made up of Sacha from Intronaut and the dudes from National Sunday Law (who are total mensches).

  • TR00KVLT

    There was no student option for the employment (or lack thereof) section, so instead of leaving it blank, I filled in as life-lover. Is that acceptable, or am I now an official poseur hakk?

    • SHIT. That’s my fault. I bet there are a bunch of student readers.

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    Quality over quantity, every time.

    Now if the schedule is changed to suit average day working hours in Europe, that’d be grand. I’m sure the other 5 to 10 Europeans here are worth it!

    GUYS, GUYS, I TOTALLY FORGOT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMs9yNlBp4c

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    Is that a pube on the tiles?

  • FeelTheDarkness

    I could write an article on how I am old, listen to Olde Tyme metal and punk, played in said kind of bands and how people should get off my lawn

  • Howard Dean

    I just took your survey @joethrashnkill:disqus . I see you didn’t allocate a spot for “highly successful politician/future president,” so I had to write-in my answer THE WAY MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WILL WRITE-IN DEAN-FLAIR IN NOVEMBER 2016 WE’RE COMING FOR YOU AMERICA
