Handsome happy male bass guitarist sitting on the floor and playing on his bass guitar

LOL “happy” bass guitarist.

I’m gonna be honest with you, I totally forgot about this and now it’s 2 AM and I had to get out of bed so this is gonna be quick. It’s not like you care — the riffs are all still here. BUT, you need to read this next part because it is important.

Next week:

  • The long-awaited RIFF OF THE YEAR is here. Pick your favorite riff of 2015, and send it to toiletovhellriff@gmail.com to put it up against the best this year had to offer. Don’t blow it.
  • Include your name, a link to the video, the time of the riff, and an explanation.
  • If you have an idea for a theme, let me know.

 

Masterlord

In case you didn’t click this song while reading through my AOTY list, here’s another chance. The riff kicks off at the beginning, and is straight evul.

 

Vegglampe

I know there is some love for Frank Carter around the bowl, although it probably only includes like five people tops. You should love him because the riff at 0:30 is so pissed off that it makes Gordon Ramsey look like a sissy, and activates every neck-muscle for headbanging.

 

Gorak

GOOD RIFF FROM SMASHING YOUNG LAD! 0:39.

 

Brock Samson

Just play it, how could you not enjoy it at least a little? Start at 26:43

 

Mother Shabubu

The new SikTh mini-album is chock full o’ riffs and SikThian goodness. It’s so hard to choose one, but the outro riff of “Under the Weeping Moon” has been rattling the confines of my skull since I first heard it. It brings the rawk and the groove, yet carries enough chugging power to crvsh dicks as well.

 

Blackbeard

Them permutations in that opening riff. Its a riff about which you could say, “That’s a good riff.”

 

Zeke

This is my favorite part of my favorite Abigor song. Abigor’s riffs got super techy later on, but sometimes simple is effective. Riff starts at 4:38. [Vote for this riff. — Masterlord]

 

Karhu

Shrapnel Storm’s Mother War is easily one of the best death metal albums released all year. At around 1:10 on the title track there is a riff. There are riffs everywhere, but at that particular point is a riff that is my submission.

 

Eliza

The riff starts at about 00:16. There’s nothing to add, Kreator are awesome.

 

Guacamole Jim

Cleric isn’t really a band who does many “riffs.” However, in the opening minutes of the opening track on their 2010 full-length, they bust out an absolutely massive riff. The motif begins at 1:51, but the riff proper kicks into full gear at 2:01.

 

Boss the Ross

Everyone has been talking about the 2015 album of the year for the past few weeks, but I’m looking ahead and already have my 2016 pick ready to go. Abbath’s self-titled solo release is set to be a riff heavy album and with the release of Count the Dead, Abbath shows us once again that he really is the man. Just listen to the riff at 1:49. Heavy fucking metal.

 

Waynecro

The riff that kicks off this ripper of a song always gets me pumped and ready to lift heavy. Listen to that distorted bass. That shit totally drives this riff, giving it a very compelling urgency and an ominous vibe. The entire Rust and Grief EP is totally tits and great for blasting in the gym. Jam this tune and “Wretched Hand” in the gym, and you’ll be raking in personal bests, looking astoundingly ripped, and impressing the womenfolk with your incredible postworkout vascularity in no time.

 

Dave

This new Aborted song fucking rips and 0:43 is proof of that.

 

Ted Nü-Djent 

I saw The Exploited last night so I’m going to go ahead and submit a riff from them, listen to the first 45 seconds for the riff. Some of you may recognise the riff from the Slayer/Ice T collaboration on the Judgement Night soundtrack.

  • Since the masterlord failed to include my riff, it starts at .44 https://hellthrasherproductions.bandcamp.com/track/rituals-of-hallucination

    • Waynecro

      Goddamn. That’s a good one.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    Riff of 2015?
    Monolord?
    Acid King?

    • Boss the Ross

      DOPETHRONE!

      I DRINK FIIIYA!

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        I like Acid King’s ‘Intro/Outro’ riff a bit more.

        • Boss the Ross

          Fair enough! Acid King is pretty righteous.

        • Boss the Ross

          And to be honest, I will probably be picking a Clutch riff anyways.

    • Zeke

      That acid king album got ALOT of plays from me this summer

  • Boss the Ross

    How was the Exploited show, Ted?

    • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

      They’re touring again? I figured Wattie was still resting up after the heart attack.

  • Boss the Ross

    Killer picks this week gentlemen!

  • COAL ROLL

    Competing with Axl rosenberg for laziest metal blog editor?

    • Boss the Ross

      Das brutal.

    • Oh shit! Shots Fired!

      • COAL ROLL

        “You got one job, man”

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      That’s savage.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        OHHHH YEAAHHHH

    • Boss the Ross

      I just realised the winner from last week wasn’t even announced. Masterlord really is lazy.

      • COAL ROLL

        My point exactly

    • It seems to work for him…
      *runs away crying*

      • COAL ROLL

        *slams locker*

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        I’m sorry. Do you need a hug?

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays

    That new song by Aborted rips too much!

  • Eliza

    My curiosity of knowing what will be acclaimed as the Riff of the Year has no boundaries.

  • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

    Hmm. Who deserves my most cherished vote this morning?

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      Does it have a dope ass beat? Can you get schwifty to it? These are the questions of the day.

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        Does it make you take off your pants, shit on the floor?

        • Boss the Ross

          Funny, I didn’t see any GG Allin riffs…

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          Do you scream WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUB and start shaking that ass?

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Is your head bent over? Raised up posterior?

          • Boss the Ross

            Do you start to shake uncontrollably and foam at the mouth?

          • KJM, Shake Zula
          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I LOVE THIS REMIX

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            It kicks much ass. I nominate 1:37 for Riff Ov The Week.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Or are you dying in a vat in the garrage?

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Are you Tiny Rick?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Rick is a Chaotic Neutral(good tendencies), more cantankerous and amoral version of The Doctor.
            1)Despite being more than capable of working alone(some exceptions), he prefers to have companions on his adventures.
            2)Council Of Ricks = multiple regenerations in different timelines
            3)Travels around in a small, yet seemingly indestructable vessel.
            4)has committed atrocities including genocide and claimed it was for the greater good.
            etc etc, I’ll stuff myself into the locker this time.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            Hmmm im more convinced he is chaotic good.

            He claims to be burdened by his family, even endangering them, only to save them and the ‘day’ every time

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Could a Chaotic Good character have as much blood(some of it not all that guilty) on his hands as Rick does? That’s the main sticking point for me. Even if we stick with just what we’ve seen, Rick is very kill happy when he has to be.

          • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

            I assert they could, just like a templar would have plenty of blood on his hands

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            The Doctor is like that too.I’ve come up with a bunch more brief points about similarities between the two(stayed up too way late smoking that OG), some that address this point a bit. Check it.

            Despite claiming not to “give a fuck”, Rick has risked life and limb to save his companions and Planet Earth as well.(just like The Doctor)

            Again, despite claiming not to “give a fuck”, Rick harbors deep depression and pain for past actions and lost companions(end of s2ep3).(same)

            Other points:
            Rick has a hand held weapon/tool that gets him out of damned near every jam.

            Despite working with the military to help save Earth, Rick can’t stand them, just like The Doctor and UNIT.

            The “Cronenberg” episode showed, Rick will use any means necessary to save himself and his companions without regard to consequences.(I think this also addresses the alignment issue)

            Despite being old, grumpy, and weary, both Rick and The Doctor have the need to goof off and party every now and again(including dancing).

            The Doctor has thrown hard truth at his companions sometimes to help them overcome adversity, and Rick is more than willing to be a brutally honest asshole to get his point across when immediate need arises.

            tl:dr Stop smoking that damned shit KJM.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            TINY RICK!!

        • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC
    • Salvador Dalí Lama

      Since I didn’t vote for myself, me.

  • COAL ROLL

    Just finished listening to all the riffs and they’re all solid 5/7’s

    • even Guac Jim’s weird pick!

      • Is Tapir gone? I’m trying to find him again…

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          You’re back? Yay!

          • Yay! I just took the usual break.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I never take a break from the Toilet.

          • Good. The Toilet needs you!

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It sure does. Who else will post the greatness of dad rock and wrestling?

          • Maybe Jimmy would, if he got in to it…

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            One day he will. I’ll make him if I have to because he’s my bae.

          • Baes always have to stick together and trust eachother.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Exactly.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            I remember you once said you’d take a brake. That brake never happened.

          • more beer

            So he is taking the brake from a car or bike?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            I dun goofed again.

          • more beer

            It’s all good English isn’t your first language.

          • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

            Yes, yes you did. Seems like everyone over at Axl’s Felch Party is trying to get a piece of that tapir booty.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Jimmy told them I’m here. It’s all his fault.

          • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

            Apparently MS has gotten such a bad rep that they’ve even made fun of them on TMZ’s comments section lately, which is saying alot, considering how laughable TMZ is nowadays.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Really? I can’t imagine they’re worse than Lambgoat, even now.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Gah, almost forgot about Lambgoat. Much like MS and MI, I’m not opening up that door of flaming turdstorm ever again.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I haven’t been there since November. The joke hasn’t been funny since the Paris attacks.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            What joke?

            Pretty sure King 810 isn’t going to do the whole AK-47’s on stage thing since the Paris attacks, unless they’re complete fucking morons.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I was shocked when I visited MS after the better part of a year. They’re almost as bad as youtube for paranoid shut-ins spewing racist antisemitic garbage.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            I………….. I ………….. might check out MS again just for shits and giggles (and probably leaving something horrifying for them to look at). It’s gonna take me a couple more drinks.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            It never will.

        • more beer

          This is borderline stalking.

          • It’s not stalking, he’s my bae! Like Hester, just a little nicer.

          • more beer

            He is here today. If he left. It was probably to get a restraining order on you.

          • Not if I get a restraining order on him first!

          • more beer

            But I thought you loved him? Then you couldn’t be with him.

          • I would only do it because I love him.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Hasn’t someone gave you a bath salt and bleach intervention yet?

          • Bleach yes, bath salt no.

          • more beer

            No just a bath salt and bleach injection.

          • more beer

            Kind of like I only hit you because I love you. Pretty fucked up Smitty.

          • Sorry…it’s the bleach. I blame the bleach.

          • more beer

            Yea blame the bleach for your man crush on Tapir.

          • …It could also be the mustard. I shoot up mustard, y’know.

          • more beer

            I hope it is at least the spicy brown mustard. Not that yellow shit they give to kids.

          • What if it is the yellow shit they give to kids? What are you gonna do? Kill me?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            The mustard will kill you for him. It’s laced with paraquat.

          • I can’t stop now. I’ve already told my supplier to give me all of his mustard or the bomb I placed in his home somewhere would explode his family.

          • more beer

            No you aren’t worth going to prison to me. But the spicy brown is probably the better high.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            “Spicy” brown is always the better high, dangerous though.

          • more beer

            He has no fear of such things.

          • Oh, I’ve tried it before. It’s not as good, all it does is make you see messed up shit. I don’t want to see messed up shit, I’ve already seen enough.

          • more beer

            So then you are just a boy in a mans world.

          • With mustard, I can be in whatever world I want to be in.

          • more beer

            Only with the brown.

          • And the yellow.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            But that’s just the chaos in your own fishy little brain. Don’t confuse your perception of the outside world for the real thing. Take the brown mustard.

          • I….I’ll do it. I’ll do it for everyone. Thank you. Well, I’m going to my supplier. Hopefully he doesn’t pull that “I’m not home” bullshit again…

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            “Dave’s not here…”

          • I swear to God I will fucking kill him if he pulls that shit.

          • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

            Or mustard gas.

          • more beer

            See above.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            They always blame the “drugs”…

          • more beer

            Yep. They never want to take responsibility for their own actions.

          • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

            Mmm, rabbit stew

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Don’t.

      • Guacamole Jim

        I have to give a shout to C. Molenaar for putting me onto Cleric. That dude knows exactly what I love in metal.

    • tigeraid

      Robert Graves.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    New Abbath is good. New Aborted is good. Kreator is always good. I voted for SYL.

    • SYL ROCKS!!!! i so wanted to do that, but a certain hail’er and kill’er stole my heart again this week

      • Boss the Ross

        Awww, you shouldn’t have. All thanks to you man. I hadn’t figured out my riff for this week until you notified me of the new song.

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        You couldn’t even vote for SYL. You shouldn’t vote for yourself (unless you’re JJD).

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          Tapir plz! I haven’t submitted a riff in a while!

    • Boss the Ross

      I’m really looking forward to Abbath’s release and his headlining of next year’s Decibel Tour with High on Fire.

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        Yea I saw a flyer for that tour at the venue the Dead Kennedys played last night. Abbath & Co. have been playing some tunes from the “I” album as well at the European shows, so I’m stoked at the possibility of seeing them play The Storm I Ride, Warriors, and Days of North Wind live.

        • Boss the Ross

          You went to Dead Kennedys at GML?

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Yup yup.

          • Boss the Ross

            Holy shit! How was it? Have you been to any of the other recent shows? I was probably there as well.

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            It was awesome. I went to the Mastodon/Clutch show at Gas Monkey Live a few weeks ago, and I was at Lamb of God/ Slipknot (I know…) at Gexa a while back as well. Also seen Alice Cooper/Motley Crüe at the American Airlines Center, went to OneFest in Deep Ellum where Magrudergrind and Primitive Man played. I go to shows as often as I’m able.

          • Boss the Ross

            Awesome!
            I was at the Clutch show too!

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Cool man, we’ll have to drink a beer or something if we’re ever at the same show again. I might spend $14 to see Code Orange and Blistered tonight at Tomcats West in Ft Worth, or go to the free show in Dallas at Wit’s End (Deep Ellum) with Kaliya and Interment.

          • Boss the Ross

            The next show I’m probably going to catch will be Black Tusk at GMBG in January. Though things can change.

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Do you go to the Gas Monkey often-ish? I’ve been there 4 times now I think, 3 times to the Bar & Grill one and once to the bigger Gas Monkey Live up the street for the Clutch show. Haha I actually didn’t know that there’s two separate Gas Monkey venues until I showed up to the B&G (the only one I’d been to at that point) for Mastodon and Clutch. I parked near the band buses/vans and asked a dude standing by one if he was with any of the bands and if he knew who was playing next. He said Soilwork was up next and then Crowbar after them. I was like “Holy shit!! I just thought Corrosion of Conformity, Mastodon, and Clutch were playing!! I had no idea Soilwork and Crowbar were here too!! Fucking awesome!!” The dude just looked at me like I was an idiot and said “Oh no man, you’re at the wrong place. You gotta go to the other Gas Monkey.” WAT?? There’s two? Mind=Blown.

          • Boss the Ross

            I went 3 times in October and 1 in November. It’s pretty close to where I am with a lot of good bands coming through, so it’s my favorite
            Same thing kinda happened to me. My first GMBG show was Helmet so I thought it was their only venue. Clutch show was announced and after a while the soulfly show had the same date. Took me a few weeks of freaking the hell out becuase i was not going to miss Clutch show because of scheduling to realise it showed 2 different addresses. Then I was pissed off because Crowbar was playing the same night. I wish they would’ve scheduled at least a day apart.

          • Bosse de Hosse Rosse

            Are you going to the Black Tusk/Royal Thunder/Bask/Turbid North show?

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Sounds like a good time. I’ll look into it.

          • Bosse de Hosse Rosse

            Cool man, I should be there.

          • Bossicus thee Rossicus

            Hey man, I’ll be at the show tonight. Just look for a ToH shirt and a black hoodie!

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            Damn I missed it man (obv). I’m going to see the Nile show at Trees coming up though.

  • i wonder if misterlord is just a lil’ sweetie IRL, cause he sure enjoys some sinister riffs!!

    There gonna be a prize pack for Riff of the year winner?

    • a personal congratulations from RiotAct666

      • more beer

        FLUSH!

    • more beer

      The satisfaction of kicking everyone else’s ass.

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      KJU said he’ll send some shitty movie to the winner

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Hopefully it’s not a movie from the top bunk.

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          Don’t worry, you’re not gonna win it with dad rock.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’m not submitting a riff.

          • more beer

            So then it doesn’t matter if it’s a movie from the top bunk. But if you are a good boy. Maybe he will send you one of those anyway.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            If he says his prayers and takes his vitamins.

          • more beer

            He could get a stocking full of North Korean porn. Lucky boy.

          • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

            People still buy top bunk movies?

          • more beer

            They still make physical copies of porn so probably yes.

          • … -400000 F/ 9 Million BC

            Gotta feel bad for the schmucks who still pay for porn. Well, not really. I can’t believe people actually bought Kim Kardashian’s sex tape (which was hilariously bad, btw)

          • more beer

            I can’t believe anyone pays for or watches anything, that family is involved in. As for paying for porn. I know people who like to get their movies signed by the actresses( I use this term very loosely). At porn conventions. So they have to have a physical copy.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            You couldn’t just get them to sign a dried up cum rag?

          • more beer

            Not me just a couple of people I know. But I guess not.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            “Hi! I’m a big fan, and I’ve jerked off to your work at least 8 times a day! Here, can you sign this? Sorry if it’s sticky. Could you sign around the sticky parts?”

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            I’d have to wonder what hanging out a porn convention is like.

            “Hey, how are you?”
            “Good, just came here to check out the DP booth and get my copy of ‘Anal Rampage’ signed.”
            “Ummmmmmmmmmm, no, I’m not shaking your hand, thanks.”
            “No prob. Hey, isn’t that Axel Rosenberg over at the dog felching booth?”
            “Sure is! Damn, his hand is shaking. Must’ve been a couple of hours since he whacked off. I guess Stormfront was slow today”

        • You are correct. I’m just sick of ostentatious folk/ambient interludes. I was into that shit as a young’n, but no longer. If you can’t integrate it directly into the meat and potatoes of your composition, you’re just wanking in my face.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            They integrate it pretty well, in my not so humble opinion. Might not be ‘Still Life’ in that category, but still mixes it quite well.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That’s why I prefer mostly Sabbath-worship Doom rather than the epic Candlemass style stuff. The Wounded Kings are an exception, and even then only on their most recent albums.

            It’s like Naked Lunch. The best you can do is use it as a loose framework rather than be literal.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Yeah, that book was too loose and out there to do an actual film on. Anyone who’s read the book can tell you there’s almost no plot to begin with. Now, ‘Junkie’ is a whole other story.

            Sadly, as far as I know, that’s the only William Gibson stuff put to film. They REALLY need to make a movie for Neuromancer and All Tomorrow’s Parties. Neuromancer is begging to be made into a movie!

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            The best you’re going to get is The X-Files episode “Kill Switch” written by Gibson. There’s another ep too but it’s not as good.

            Fringe >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> X Files.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’m taking a huge leap of “faith” with JJ Abrams on Star Wars. I’ve not seen Fringe, Lost was passable at best, Super 8 sucked donkey balls, and I don’t have enough negative expletives for what he calls “Star Trek”. It’ll be a while.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            I agree with all of those, but Fringe is quite easily the best sci-fi show ever put to TV.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZntclN1FBrs

            You’ll either have to Google it, or if you have Netflix, I’m sure it’s on there. The full seasons aren’t on Youtube, or I’d link them up to ya. It’s a massive mindfuck of a show, no doubt.

            I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s among my 10 favorite shows of all time.
            I still haven’t watched part 2 of the finale since it aired, and it’s not just because of that part. I have major issues with how it all ended.

          • Do explain, in re: issues.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            The middle of season 4 after Cylon conflict is resolved.
            “Visible constellations are a match.”
            A match for what?
            The answer to this question(never answered in this ep) throws off the entire conclusion of the show to me. Is it a match for the constellations from the jump, or from the visions they were shown way back in season 2? Roslin, Adama, Kara, etc, knew they were looking for those stars, then out of nowhere they ignore that those stars are nowhere to be seen after the jump?
            Never mind that, how the fuck did Hoshi know where to meet the Galactica in the finale? Do Cylon base ships come equipped with inter dimensional transmitters?
            Even if I’m wrong about those points, I find it hard to believe that a typical colonist would be willing to throw off all their tech and spend the remainder of their lives playing treehouse with a bunch of proto-humans(never mind breeding with them)?

            Remember, you did ask. ^_^

          • Boss the Ross

            Fair points, i just look past any questions i might have and try to enjoy it.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Yeah, but when a show spends 4 years getting you to invest in it’s complex mythology, it throws me off(to say the least) when it goes against that very same mythology for the sake of storyline convenience and the perceived need for closure.

          • Boss the Ross

            Haha, yeah i guess so.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I was heavily invested in BSG, almost as much as Twin Peaks, and ESPECIALLY since the big reveal in the s3 finale. You know what I’m talking about.

            Oh yes. Colonel Tigh is my favorite character and that reveal completely blew my mind open.

            “Aw, no way…” Chief was just so whatever about it, just more shit for him to deal with.

          • Boss the Ross

            Haha, pretty much! He had one hell of a character story arc.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            And his attitude was so working class and fatalistic, he pretty much took it all on the chin until about midway through 4th season. Even staring out at the sky line of “Earth”, he was all smdh with a sardonic grin on his face like “Yep, why am I not surprised? Just more bullshit.”

          • Boss the Ross

            Ha, I like that observation.

          • 🙁

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Those are just insurmountable points for me. Besides that, BSG is excellent TV. BSG:Razor was dark insanity. I’ll probably have to watch it soon, been a long time.

          • I allowed the emotional resonance of the final episode(s) to override any ruptures in logic. I was too into the characters to really give a shit about the science n’ shit.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            While watching I could, but once it was over the critical faculties returned.

          • Those pesky critical faculties. Can we see about firing them?

            What’s BSG?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Battlestar Galactica(2004), the TV equivalent of alchemy(i.e. turning something that was originally shit into gold).

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Nope. The newer one was shit on a stick. The original, much like Star Trek, beat the newer versions.

            The old Galactica was sheer garbage(especially 19080), not even fit to be compared with Quark(???) never mind original Trek. Even Pigs In Space was better than 1978 BSG.

            Oh shit, that sounds like an amazing experience. I will be listening to this later.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            OHHHHH! I’ll certainly agree that it’s an awesome show! You know that Starbuck is a woman in real life now, right? I kid you not.

          • Ummmmmm…Tom Zarek?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            BANG

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Not sure, I’d have to look it up. I remember one of the actors from the original going transgender, and doing an interview about it on TMZ a while back.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            It isn’t Dirk Benedict(Starbuck) or Richard Hatch(Apollo, Tom Zarek). However, Starbuck being recast as a woman turned Dirk Benedict into a raging bitter MRA.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            What’s an MRA?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Oh, you should google it and find out for yourself. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You’ll thank me.
            EDIT:Urban Dictionary actually.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Inb4 KJU becomes an MRA

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’m honestly surprised he doesn’t know. They’re a source of major comedy, right up his alley.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            More like a Weeb Rights Activist…

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Weebs deserve no rights

            I hope your police stop shooting innocent people and start shooting weebs.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Not enough rednecks have been exposed to Anime. There should be an outreach campaign.

          • more beer

            Most people who get shot by the cops were doing something wrong. From time to time someone innocent gets shot by them. If you are doing nothing wrong chances are you won’t be shot by the cops. The media makes things out to be much worse than they are.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            OH, OK, Urban Dictionary!

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These troglodytes?

          • Boss the Ross

            Being a fan of the original series, it threw me for a loop when i found out Starbuck and Boomer were going to be women in the reimagined universe. But then i watched it. It worked so well, adding a lot of extra character dynamics.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Despite my issues with the finale, it was an excellent show.

          • Boss the Ross

            Yeeeeeaaaaaahhhh!

          • Boss the Ross

            Yeeeeeeesssss!

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I grew up watching Twilight Zone, Doctor Who, and The Prisoner. I’ll see Fringe at some point, I suppose, but Blake’s 7 is the best Science Fiction show ever made for TV, bar none.
            And yes, you don’t know what that show is, but that’s okay. Go to youtube and find out. The entire 4 season run is there.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Indeed I don’t, but I have a whole day for films and TV tomorrow, so I can check it out.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            British TV, late 70s. If you’re familiar at all with Firefly you’ll see where Whedon stole, I mean came up with, all his ideas including dialogue lifted word for word from the show.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            I’ve heard alot about Firefly but haven’t seen it. It’s coming back, btw. IIRC, Netflix picked it up and is renewing it.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            That’s great and I still enjoy it, but it was all done first on Blake’s 7.

          • Boss the Ross

            Walter is the man.

          • Alias was good. After that, JJ basically can’t get anything right.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I tried watching that, gave up after 5 minutes.

          • Well shit.

            *destroys Alias DVD collection*

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I’m a bit harsh when it comes to TV. You may have noticed.

          • Oh I pretty much fucking HATE TV, so it rolls off me like water off a freshly waxed . . . something that has been freshly waxed. (Use your perverted imagination.)

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Can’t forget this fucking nutball genius (Klaus Kinski).

            Yes he is eccentric to say the least. But a great actor.

        • Boss the Ross

          I like Keanu as well. Yes, he is easy to make fun of, but we still love him.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Speak for yourself. I fucking hated the Matrix, even back in 2000.

          • Boss the Ross

            Everyone is entitled to an opinion. I guess i was just speaking for those of us that like him.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Not every actor can be a Daniel Day Lewis. 😉

          • Boss the Ross

            A true assessment.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            or Tor Johnson for that matter.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Name sounds familiar……….

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            George ‘The Animal’ Steele played him in Burton’s ‘Ed Wood’.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Oh yeah!!!!!!!

            “Boris Carloff, that cocksucker!” -favorite line from that film

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            And he even got an Oscar for that role. I was honestly surprised.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Martin Landau, that is.

          • tertius_decimus

            I thought I was the only such a bazterd to hate teh Matrix since its inception.

          • Boss the Ross

            Not even the first one?

          • tertius_decimus

            Especially the first one. Can’t get under any sauce what other people see in it as so revolutionary (aside aesthetics, bullet time and so on). For me it’s like a “Requiem for a Dream” — P.O.S. conception that somehow found the way to the minds of many. These two movies are the pinnacle of what I hate in cinematograph.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            We should probably never go see movies together. ^_^ What of directors like Lynch and Cronenberg?

          • tertius_decimus

            Funny… I don’t remember any of either’s work. Maybe “Twin Peaks” series, though the last I’ve seen it was in the middle of 90’s. No memories left. Same with “The Fly”. Don’t remember what this movie about, just few recollections of Goldblum’s facial expressions.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            David Cronenberg = Shivers(AKA They Came From Within), The Brood, Scanners, Videodrome, many more.
            David Lynch = Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart, Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire, and much more.

          • Boss the Ross

            I’d go to the movies with you.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Too bad you weren’t hanging around back in the 80s-90s when they only cost $5 a pop.

          • more beer

            The prices now are out of control. I never go to the movies anymore. I just can’t justify paying that much.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I pay $8 a month for unlimited streaming Netflix. I have a decent enough setup at home to enjoy movies on my time at my convenience.

          • more beer

            I have Netflix in my house also. Plus there are websites that are free that have all sort of new movies. I also have a good set up to watch things at my my convenience. Plus at home you can blaze while watching a movie.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            And stop to use the bathroom, a huge bonus.

          • more beer

            Yes.

          • Boss the Ross

            Now you’re lucky to pay less than $10.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I used to go 1-2 a week when $5 was the top price. The 2nd run theater 2 blocks from my house was only about $2.50 in those days.

          • Boss the Ross

            Luckily we have a 2nd run theater down the road from us with $1 Tuesdays and about $2.50 regular.

            I am no fan of him or his movies. I didn’t like the Matrix either. But he is another horrible actor. Who gets way to much love from people.

          Woody Harrelson as a goofball stoner was also a huge selling point for me here.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            I love ’em. To each their own! But, you grew up deep in the golden age of metal, so I can see why you hated them so much.

          • more beer

            I tolerated them when I was with that girl because she was so hot and a freak.

          • more beer

            The girl was a freak it was pretty much constantly . Why else would I have tolerated that horrible music. I might have stayed with her if she didn’t have to go back to Guam.

          • Air Raid From The Top Bunk

            Sounds about like my ex. Sat through Moulin Rouge, fuck knows how many Hugh Grant movies, and Spice World. Thankfully I got some afterwards.

            I don’t have a choice but work for things and keeping my self in check. This metal life is fucking expensive. On top of life being expensive.

Being a lazy bum and not leaving the house for days is something I like doing. But it looks like I will have 3 days off this week because the weather is gonna suck.
