Sumo Cyco – Crowd Control: A Video Breakdown

Cyco Antisocial.

I couldn’t really decide what video to break down for this week. Yeah, there were a few mediocre videos released this past week, but nothing that really jumped out (well, not counting this steaming pile of garbage). Even checking the usual bad video offenders turned up fairly blah results. I decided to get creative in youtube searching and came across something, well, interesting.

Sumo Cyco is a female-fronted punkish hard rockish band from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The band’s first show was opening for Hollywood Undead. That fact manages to be impressive and depressive at the same time. The band has released one full-length album, Lost In Cyco City, back in 2014. For whatever reason, the band has released not one, but two new music videos for that album. In 2016. According to their Wikipedia, the band has released 13 videos (not including the two new ones). One album, close to 20 music videos. That’s…wow. I guess we should see if their videos are just so incredible that it would be a crime against nature if they were not made.

0:01: Cyco content? So the content is full of bad spelling?
0:04: It’s worth noting that this video is connected to the other one they just released. Just in case you didn’t want to miss any crucial parts of the story.
0:09: Thanks for participating, Hella!
0:14: This shit is bananas. S-H-I-T bananas!
0:17: NO ANIME!
0:21: See, this is why you’re not supposed to eat White Castle before going to bed.
0:25: DC Comics is going to sue someone for this infringement.
0:30: Whoa, was he sitting on a spring-loaded couch cushion?
0:32: He’s not hurt, his chest is just crying.
0:39: This is why businesses need to use E-Verify before hiring someone.
0:44: This guy loves brutal slamming death metal and Webkinz.
0:48: Cosplayers are getting out of control.
0:52: Now that’s just a waste of magical bullets.
0:55: I SAID NO ANIME!
0:59: That’s what you get for wearing a knock-off Pittsburgh Steelers jersey.
1:09: I suppose we should be happy that Gummi Bear over here isn’t the one wearing the maid outfit.
1:13: Man, some people do not like losing at beer pong.
1:18: The sunglasses help hide his tears.
1:24: Looks like someone needs a little more “crowd” control.
1:27: You can lose an eye that way.
1:30: Hahaha yeah that’s totally how people fall when they’re shot.
1:35: Just have a racist 14 year old yell over this video and you have the official online gaming experience.
1:40: Those bullets are so magical they cause people to die without bleeding.
1:43: So the band can count, but they can’t spell.
1:46: And I thought the American public school system was bad.
1:52: Oh, a Kid Rock cameo.
1:57: The giant skulls were more for hiding shame than for symbolism.
2:00: For some reason, this video makes me want to watch the Goosebumps TV show.
2:04: Maybe it’s all the “na-na-nahs.” They kind of match up with the intro music.
2:07: Video directed by Quentin Tarantino.
2:12: Yes, please shoot me.
2:20: It was nice of one of their parents to let them shoot in their townhouse.
2:28: You’re better off hiding in the toilet.
2:33: Do people know know how to use door knobs in Hamilton, Ontario?
2:43: This is getting dark real fast.
2:49: This is also getting Pretty Reckless.
2:53 NO ANIME!
2:55: Giant bobble heads are okay though.
3:03: This video is definitely on a perverted businessman’s computer labeled as “2014 Quarterly Projections.”
3:08: Wait, so they bleed now?
3:17: Hey, we saw him close those doors just a few seconds ago.
3:21: I’m calling shenanigans on this scenario!
3:29: If this were real life, that shower would be a lot dirtier right now.
3:34: It turns out their heads are full of ripe heirloom tomatoes.
3:43: She’s going to have to clean up that mess if she wants to keep her maid job.
3:49: Where did all that blood come from? Did they cut out the scene where she disembowels the bodies and throws around their organs like streamers?
3:56: Ugh, Mondays.
4:00: “Yes, I played “Butt #1” in Sumo Cyco’s music video.
4:09: Dollar Store Black Mask.
4:15: Oh goodie.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I forgot they were still around (I stopped after Les Claypool’s Frog Brigade). First 3 CDs are absolute classics though. Even my dad loves them.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Insane Clown Posse

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Phil Anselmo

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            But…Anselmo made good music…

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Nope.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yep.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Tapir knows what’s up!

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            But, the reasoning behind B Metal getting the filter was, for the most part, it turns the thread into a quagmire (which I’ll agree on), same with ELP for a while, and a certain Mexican fast food chain. Anselmo definitely has that effect nowadays!

            PS, he’s made good music?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yep. First Down album for instance is fucking great.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            All of the Down albums are great. And Pantera.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Ross gets it.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            So does Joe.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            To be honest, the amount of hate Pantera gets online surprised me when I first started lurking the internet metal boards. It seems that ‘elitism’ (whatever that means anyway) is much more widespread online than it is in real life.

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Oh well, what can you do?

            You can keep listeneing to Pantera, that’s what you can do.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Along with most regular metal fans.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I liked Far Beyond Driven when I was in 8th grade. Quickly outgrew it though. Nowadays, they’re like the metal version of Jock Jams to me.
            Won’t deny their place in the history of metal, or music in general though. Same with The Beatles. I fucking hate The Beatles, but I understand their importance nonetheless.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That’s ok, I’m just messing around a bit. Nobody should be forced to listen to anything. When you like it, stick to your guns and admit you like it. The same goes for when you think something sucks. Nothing wrong with saying something sucks. After all, they’re just opinions.
            I like everything from Cowboys from Hell to The Great Southern Trendkill. Reinventing the Steel has a few solid songs, but the album as a whole…meh. Then again, I’m a bit “jockish” myself…or at least I look the part, not in terms of behavior.

            I fail to see how Pantera is a ‘bad’ band though. I understand why people don’t like their music. Different strokes and all that. I just can’t call them ‘bad’. Hellyeah or 5FDP on the other hand…that’s a different story. I will never understand how 5FDP got so popular.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            5FDP got bit partly because of their whole UFC bro vibe and partly because of their (most likely bogus, considering the charity they were giving to has been known for pocketing money for quite some time, and they themselves pocketed quite a bit of cash) charity work for vets.
            That and people are really fucking stupid. Just my opinion!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That’s probably the reason yeah. I can’t see someone getting into them for their music. With some of the ‘popular’ metal bands I dislike, I at least can see other people getting into them because those bands usually know how to write some catchy hooks. But 5FDP doesn’t even have good hooks.

          • more beer

            They got popular. Because most of the population of earth is stupid.

            Pantera should definitely be added to the spam filter. And the ROTW filter while we’re at it.

          • Rob M

            Just assume Im upvoting this a lot more than once

          • Let the record state that I acknowledge your pleas and haughtily dismiss them.

            Just to be clear, I respect all of your opinions. But I want to let you know they’re wrong. Bwahahahahaha!

          • Rob M

            ..and by wrong, you mean factually correct

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            By wrong, I mean opinions that contradict my own so I blindly disregard them as false and pretend like I’m always right when in reality I think everyone deserves an opinion and shouldn’t be swayed by anyone else

            Hahaha!

          • Rob M

            Well if youre going to be all reasonable about it, I’ll just take my argument elsewhere

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Wait don’t go…
            What I meant was “shut your nonsense mouth PANTERA for life WALK ON HOME BOY”

          • Rob M

            Thats better

            They are so awesome they won at “atmospheric” ROTW edition. I have not forgotten. Stanley does not forget.

          • Dubs

            The butthurt lingers still, like a spooky ghost whispering to you during your showers.

            Tbf, my butt was hurt too, but I also found it so absurd as to reach comical proportions.

          • My stars, what heinous villain would submit Pantera to an atmospheric RoTW?

          • Dubs

            I’m lol’ing right now thinking about it.

          • Stanley

            Maybe it was some totalitarian overlord?

          • COAL ROLL

            you were awol for like a week after that RoTY tie

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            Yeah, that was jacked up.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Wait, wait, what?!?!?!

          • Stanley

            Ruins of Beverast, Burzum, Enlsaved, Dissection and mine. My butt is still tingling.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Gah, now I remember! All forgiven, though, since that was the post that got me into Summoning.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            PS, what is ‘tl:dr’? I’ve been seeing that a lot more lately, especially on TMZ’s comments.

            and Black Label Society

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            And Hellyeah!

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Nope.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That’s ok, I stopped taking you seriously when you claimed your love for Die Krupps and Oomph! .

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            One of these days, you’ll catch the fever! 😉

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I wouldn’t count on that haha!

            Anyway, since you seem to dislike some of the more well known industrial metal bands, what’s your opinion on Ministry?

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Been a fan since ’93, and love Al’s side projects as well! Met Chris Connelly a couple of times when he was working at Reckless Records back in Chicago.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Well, along with Godflesh that’s at least two industrial metal likes we have in common then.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Did you check out Decree? I think I sent it to you a week or so ago.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I listened to the Moment of Silence album. It’s pretty good.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

          • Rob M

            Oh god..speaking of B-metal quagmire, did you see that clusterfuck that came from the MS review. Theyve been going at it over there for about a week straight now

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Nope, but I’m sure they did it to troll-bait the trolls back to them.

          • Rob M

            It worked…600+ comments last time I looked

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            500 of which involved the word ‘pedo’, another 50 yammering about Trump and how we need a wall, and another 50 going straight into Alex Jones-on-meth territory, I’m guessing.

          • Rob M

            Its like you were there…

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Thankfully no. I’m enjoying their rapid decline, though!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Wait…that thread is still alive?

          • Rob M

            As of last night.

            …Its basically devolved into that one really annoying guest account, who uses all those really big words just to call someone a pedo, arguing with those three really obnoxious super-fans who think B-metal is the most revolutionary music to appear in the last 30 years…

            …its really just sad at this point

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I never bothered to involve myself in that thread. Seemed a bit pointless; the only thing I would’ve gotten out of that are rustled jimmies. Though I’ve skimmed through the thread. Only thing I could see were some 100 posts by that annoying pseudo-intellectual, 200 more posts by an even more obnoxious B-metal fan and 50 posts by a guest account fierily defending those two guys for defending B-metal.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            The second person posting and third person fiercely defending them was probably Marty Friedman!

          • yick, leave that stuff for the other blogs

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            We’ll talk about it over dinner at Kuma Corner. 😉

          • upon this, we agree

          • Rob M

            Yeah..theyre exactly the ones still going at it.

            You were smart though, I made the stupid mistake of correcting someones definition of novelty in that thread (nothing else mind you, didnt agree, disagree or anything else…just corrected the definition).
            I ended up arguing with one of those dudes for the next three days as he kept telling me to defend why B-metal was a novelty, and I kept telling him it wasnt my comment and I didnt care one way or the other about B-metal

            …Those fans are fucking obsessed with that band in a really unhealthy way

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I cut back on involving myself in discussions on that blog. I know I’ll end up saying things I’ll regret later on.

            Though today I did get into a fight on that Puddle of Mud thread from yesterday with that shitty English-speaking guy.

          • Rob M

            I dont do it too often anymore, and usually its something small like on the “what comes out this week” or maybe some light snark at Rhombus or Axel when they say something really stupid

            People over there get their asses chapped over the most minor stuff though. The last couple of times I got into it online with somebody it was over there and over a nothing comment.

            Im usually thinking “Out of all the shit being thrown around, THIS is the comment that caught your attention?”

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah, it really gets ridiculous at times. Mostly I’m smart enough to stay out of the big arguments nowadays. But in the PoM thread there was a black girl commenting and that “shitty English-speaking guy” was immediately playing the race card (which he does often) and saying crap like “are you the singer of new Sepultura”. Now I think a lot of that SJW crap in metal is ridiculous myself. But there are zero reasons to racially attack someone in a discussion that has nothing to do with race. And I know I should stay out of any of those discussions between others, but sometimes it’s difficult to control yourself…and it gets the ball rolling very quick.

          • Rob M

            Oh damn…that Dekaptator dude, is that who youre talking about? That kid is a complete ass. He keeps shooting off on the girl who does the “Thats so Metal” videos as well (and honestly, shes the first thing theyve had on there thats amusing).
            I got into it with him one time when he called Incantation a nazi band…couldnt backtrack fast enough when he realized I knew what I was talking about though.

            I hear ya though, sometimes its hard not to step in and say something, even when you know its just going to end with you rolling around in the mud

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Eh, fuck em. I have a low threshold for drama. Let’s make a pledge and do like I did long ago, and stick strictly to the Toilet for metal blogs (metal news sites like Blabbermouth don’t count)! Fuck the rest.

          • Rob M

            Well, I’ll probably stick with No Clean Singing because Islander’s a buddy (..and theyre completely drama free over there as well), but yeah…think Im done with MS..place is just too much of a shit hole for me

            Its not like theres a whole lot going on at that place anyway. Most of the time that site is dead

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Last I was there, there were several Kardashian articles. That was one of many cues for me to leave. That on top of posting a rape victim’s (she accused a band of it) Facebook and email on there, them trading off trolls with MS, and cut and paste articles from Blabbermouth.

            I’m a Toilet-only man when it comes to metal blogs.

          • Rob M

            Wait..who was trading trolls with MS? Youre not talking about No Clean Singing are you, because Ive been there since almost the very beginning and even written guest articles for them… that place is legit as they come.

            Are you talking about Metal Injection?

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Yes, I was talking about Anal Injection.

          • Rob M

            Then yeah, I agree…Ive only been to that site a handful of times and they seem almost as bad. Though I guess with them being sister sites, that shouldnt be too surprising.

            Theres a couple other sites I visit, though I dont post there…stuff like CVLTnation and Angry Metal Guy are good sites , and From the Dust Returned is a review blogspot that covers tons of metal..all good stuff if youre just looking for new music

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            It’s just as bad, and even worse at TMZ (which is one of my go to sites, mostly for fucking around) and most chat boards out there, sadly. Rawstory is the one exception I can think of, since they shut that shit down quick. I can’t think of anyone doing that here, though a couple have thrown around anti-gay slurs (one guy is banned and one is still around. I simply ignore him, and not saying who).

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah, I’m no “PC asshole”. I even think a lot of stories and subjects in metal get taken out of context just for some people to act like obnoxious SJW’s. On the other hand I can’t deny the fact that a lot of the boards are infested with commenters throwing around all kinds of slurs just for the hell of it. Some sections on MS for instance become a cesspool of anti-semitism. And I know the owners of the blog are (for the most part) complete dickbags; but them being Jewish has nothing to do with that.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Lol, you can definitely tell I’m not PC by any stretch of the imagination and I know context (I’ve used the N-word around countless black friends here and back home without getting my ass beat, so that says something), but some people go outside of context and simply go straight into hate-filled territory. And it’s that time of year apparently for Trump trolls to inject their racism/misogyny/offending anything that breathes into articles that have absolutely nothing to do with politics in the least.

            Me: “Yes, I do enjoy knitting, long walks on the beach and enjoying a glass of wine”

          • more beer

            You did a good job with that idiot. Plus you got that idiot to tell you to go skullfuck yourself. But if you would have really pissed him off. He would have given you his patented “go fuck goat”.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Hahaha! I’ve seen him use that “go skullfuck yourself” response all the time. That guy’s a moron. Usually I don’t like to provoke a fight with others, but you know…sometimes someone’s presence annoys you to the point where you’re no longer able to keep yourself in check.

          • more beer

            I have gotten both from that idiot. There are some there that are so stupid, sometimes you can’t help yourself. You have to say something. With that guy it is almost to easy. You never even get a witty response. It’s almost like fucking with the mentally handicapped.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            When you get into an argument with him, you’re almost 100% sure about what he’s going to say. A “go skullfuck yourself” here, some other threat of violence there… Shit like that amuses me. Especially when he makes it seem like one day he’s gonna pay you a visit to your house. As if that fuckface would ever be able to leave his own country.

          • more beer

            Yea him making it out of his house is probably a huge accomplishment. Getting to my house from whatever country he is from. Never gonna happen ever. Passport, visa, plane tickets. That would be way more than he would be able to handle. If by the off chance he actually navigated all of that stuff and made it to my front door. Is he going to ask wheres more beer? I’m Dekkapator. I would have to kill him. Because you can’t have psychotic MS posters showing up at your house. The dudes stupidity makes e laugh though.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            He’s from Bosnia. He could take a drive to my country, but then he still would have to find out where I live (which is nearly impossible). If he does show up…well, let’s just say the canal isn’t far away from my house. Even though it’s no Louisiana swamp, lots of things disappear in the canal.

          • more beer

            Thankfully he isn’t smart enough to make out of his driveway. No swamps here either. Butt certainly a lot of wide open space.

            Well after being told by some Mensa member that the Merriam-Webster definition of Novelty was wrong, Im starting to think thats the way to go

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I quit commenting on other metal sites over a year ago. A couple of my friends have bugged me to come back to Blabbermouth and comment, but haven’t been interested/too lazy to start up another LJ. I only comment on a couple of other sites (TMZ and Rawstory) as is.

          • Rob M

            I dont really comment on too many sites…No Clean Singing is probably where I spend most of my time, obviously here now, MS when Im feeling really masochistic..and theres a private metal board that Im on with some close friends…thats about it. Way too much drama on most places and I just dont care enough anymore to deal with it

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            The first part: fuck them
            The super fans: spot on (sorta, ok, not at all. Bands were doing the whole J-pop metal thing already)!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I have no problem with B-metal fans defending the band. I dislike them, but I can’t say they aren’t different and original. I just don’t get anything out of their sound. But the way those ‘super fans’ are defending the band borders on the ridiculous. They’re literally attacking everyone who claims not to like the band.

          • Rob M

            This exactly…its one thing to like the band, or even defend them, but they go up and down the thread basically going after any perceived attack on the band…dudes like this put the fanatic in fan

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Sounds like Beliebers. Minus the death threats, and threats of suicide.

          • Rob M

            Give it time

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I like ’em because they’re bouncy and fun, and sorta heavy. It’s good, peppy music for when I’m walking around, and that’s pretty much it. I’ll take some Galneryus or Sigh over them any day.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Sigh is a very frustrating band for me. I’ve been trying and trying to get into them, but I’m just unable to. Even though I do find them interesting.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            It’s music you have to be in a certain mood for (being stoned definitely helps, but I don’t know if they have weed in Belgium).

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            “I don’t know if they have weed in Belgium”

            I live near the Dutch border; lots of it 😉

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Even by Blabbermouth standards, this one got ridiculous quick, and people actually cussing out the band/band arguing back with virtually everyone.

          • Rob M

            Yeah, thats why bands really shouldnt work their way through comment sections…Most of the time they come out looking worse than the assholes commenting

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I’ll look it up in a moment, but Mike Portnoy’s went on several “you fucking haters” rants on Blabbermouth. You know exactly how that turned out.

          • Rob M

            Yeah…I think I can predict those results

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I make it a point, like with the Voivod interview, I won’t criticize a band on an article about an interview with them. Lol, McNulty predicted I’d do that with them and was surprised when I said I won’t. Definitely not cussing them out directly, I had enough of that shit when I was managing/promoting (I told Tom Shear from Assemblage 23 “Happy Father’s Day” after his dad committed suicide, after Tom doing a lot to try fucking things up for me. Looking back on it, it’s one of the worst things I’ve said in my life) . I like to have at least some tact on those sort of things.

          • Rob M

            I went through the whole “Im a dickhead” stage when I was first getting into metal…Cant say Im perfect about it now, but for the most part its just not worth the hassle of arguing with everyone about everything anymore. I know myself, and Im one of those people who has to get the last word in…its just easier for me not to start in the first place

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Misha Mansoor (from Periphery) always involves himself in the comment sections of the Periphery articles over at MS.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            He needs to stop going there and put that time into finding a new vocalist.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Oh yeah, definitely. I don’t like Periphery, but they’re talented musicians. Claiming Mansoor doesn’t know how to play the guitar, is ridiculous. The vocals on the other hand I just can’t take. Maybe with different vocals I’d be able to enjoy them slightly better.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            Exactly. They’re world class musicians and highly trained, but the vocals ruin it for me. It’s like getting the singer from New Found Glory (which he sounds like to me) to sing for Dream Theater.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Hahaha yeah that’s actually very aptly described.

          • Rob M

            Yeah, but hes intentionally trolling most of them..I dont think Ive ever seen him lose his temper over there

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah, he looks like he’s just having some fun with it. I don’t think he’s a bad guy to be honest. I kinda dislike his music, but he’s probably an alright dude.

          • Rob M

            Musically, thats not my kind of thing at all (okay, I think it sucks), but I agree, hes probably a decent guy to hang with

    I’m sure your search for background information also found that their vocalist is a former Canadian D-List pop “star” (so somewhere barely above North American Z-list, if there even is such a thing) Avril Lavigne wannabe.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            And I had to remember that you live between Holland and Belgium, which is filled with hot ladies. Victoria’s Secret’s been getting quite a few models from there. So, your standards are super high.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Can’t complain. We still have our share of grenades running around though. Like I said, I have a thing for ethnic chicks. Thankfully I live close to an area with a fairly big Italian, Greek and Turkish population; which means many Italian, Greek and Turkish girls. Italian and Greek girls are very possible to pick up. Turkish ones are a different story though. It’s not impossible, but when she has brothers you can bet your ass you’ll have to deal with an unpleasant “family visit”.

            I dunno, I’d never say no to an attractive girl of any type. But if a girl is attractive and she happens to be Asian, Black, Latin, Eastern European…any type of (for me) exotic background, my attention rate goes up.

          • Lisa Ling: Devourer Of Souls

            I’m mostly in Latinas and black women. I’ll give a girl from any background a chance, but not really into white chicks. Asians, definite, especially Polynesian and Southwestern Asian! (sadly haven’t been with an Asian chick since 2001. Been with one that was half black/half Japanese if that counts, back in 2006)

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            If you’re from Chicago, I bet there’re more than enough black and Latin women. Not so much over here where I live.
            My cousin’s wife is Filipina. I’ve had a girlfriend that was part Indonesian part Dutch. In May I’m going to China for a month. I’ll see my share of Asian girls then.

            I mainly buy CDs. I would buy more vinyl, but it can be quite expensive in here

            I buy digital. 🙁

            its not cumming in my top 10

          • Boss theSpeedMetalBastard Ross

            It’s not top 10 material, but it is a fun album nonetheless

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            U know the album is terrible when it’s called fun.

    The band decided to make a music video for every song on the album and to have each one connect so that it makes one long story, hence why they are still making music videos for it in 2016. The first video was released in 2013. Prior to the album, they only released singles, which is why they’ve made close to 20 music videos despite being only releasing music since 2011.
