You guys ever need me Im here. And I mean that sencerly  as someone who has struggled with suicide and cronic depression.

I'm glad though you guys are atleast still trucking on.

I haven't seen my daughter in a year. My ex ran off with her and some days are worse than others, but Ive managed to cope on my own. Ive learn to manage my self destructive patterns. I still enjoy a drink here and there in a rare occasion to relax but for the most part Ive manged my alcholisim.

My job is shit. I get treated like shit, but I keep trucking on being the best I can because thats a relfection of my character not theirs.

It's crazy, this board says my last post here was a little over four years ago. Yet somehow I was still logged into this thing when visited. The thing that reminded me to see if this was still going was seeing Xizor posting screenshots of Final Fantasy XV. Nice to see the occasional ghost still popping up to keep the embers stirred. Y'all let the music thread go downhill something fierce though.

I've actually kept pretty busy, coming up on my eleventh year working for the same company and I know I spoke about it a little bit, but I've become further ingrained into the heavy metal world, as part of an enthusiast press blog. I won't say journalist since I feel that might insult people who are actually journalists, but I do a ton of review work and news for the site I'm at when I have the chance to do so. It has resulted in some amazing opportunities though. I'm on my second year of traveling to Baltimore for a death metal festival at the end of May, and have been visiting Seattle twice a year both to meet up with other metal writers and also attend a bunch of shows. Other than that, things have been fairly quiet. I know a lot of the old guard have bailed and likewise, its difficult to keep up with people as you get older and there hasn't really been a new game to unify around either. I still figured I'd check in just to see how some of the characters around here were doing.

Still, though, that music thread. What the hell.

Baltimore for a death metal festival at the end of May

So I'm guessing that's May 2018 right?
If you tell me where and when, maybe I can finnaly hit you with a Plantation Pattern pillow, or a football. Whatever works.

You do realize the era we are living in DSB right? Maybe this is how our grandparents felt when the Golden oldies were being wiped out.

Music is so diverse and polarizing it's insane. In 20 years, the late 90's early 2000's kids will be talking about how music isn't like it used to be and no one has made good music like Lil' Wayne and Birdman used to make. On the other hand there are some cool artists these days if you look hard enough. I  listen to a lot of older rap and most of the shit playing on the radio is garbage, but I like a few. There's this one kid named XXXTENTACION that's pretty polarizing. I'll post some stuff in the music thread. May not be something you guys are into by any means, but he's cited a lot of lo-fi punk and thrash metal as inspiration. I'll be the first to admit that it's not relevant to the genre, but he's very diverse.

As far as metal, I don't listen to as much as I'd like to, so I don't have much to say. I've always fucked with the generic shock-rock shit, i.e. 90's Manson, Rob Zombie and random bands here and there that are just weird, not metal in any way i.e. Primus. On the other hand, I always liked black metal a lot though. Conqueror, Revenge, Mayhem. Also, enjoy your festival DSB.

I haven't been doing much, but I have a lot going on. got a job doing IT work with a senior care company. My daughter was born this past January and my fiancée and I are trying to save up as much money as possible to get prepared for the turn of the year where we'll be looking for a new place and all that. I've tried to make some music, but it's not really my thing. Other than that, I've just been collecting video games/blurays/physical media when I can at flea markets.

Yeah, its May 2018 now.  Already did this year's trip out there. They have it in the Power Plant Live section of town over Labor Day weekend or Memorial Day, or whatever one is at the end of May. I honestly don't remember, as messed up as that sounds because I used to not get it as a day off of work so it never stuck out to me until the day of. They take over Ram's Head and Soundstage and trot out a bunch of underground ugly dude death metal, grind, and black metal. It's become something of a heavy metal pilgrimage for a lot of folks, I've just been lucky to tag along for two of them now.

In regards to the music thread, I'm fucking around. I know music is incredibly diverse and tastes can be insanely different, people are allowed to be wrong...which in this case, hoo boy. We may need to have an intervention.

Ripszaur, I actually saw Revenge in Oakland last year as part of the California version of the festival I'm talking about. They were playing alongside two under appreciated 80's thrash bands on the second night to close out the day and I've never seen a crowd completely fall apart like that, everyone was so devastatingly drunk. I'm also not a huge Revenge guy. I finally got to see Primus last year in October after what felt like a years long quest.

I know, intervention on the way. I can stop whenever I want to, I just don't want to.

A friend of mine went to go see Slayer last year (I think) and got knocked out in the pit. People started throwing punches and it got way out of hand. I've never been to a metal show at all, the closest I've been to is Death Grips which was fucking awesome. I'd go a million times over, they're going on tour this year again and going everywhere but the South East. If you get the chance to go, please do. They're like Punk mixed with Rap but really experimental. That's badass you got to go to Primus though. They were touring near here but it was on my fiancée's birthday so we opted out. Did you hear about their new album coming out?

So that's what that was all about leading up to Memorial day weekend. I was wondering wtf because I thought I was being transported back in time with all the long hair in the city at the end of the week.

Because I mainly work in the city I know where all that is. Next year dude, message me and see what we can do.

Slayer pits are the goddamned worst. The band appeals to the lowest common denominator so they wind up being giant machismo filled clusterfucks. I've seen them three times now and enjoyed it every time but I'm not dumb enough to even go near a Slayer pit.

And Death Grips are very much familiar territory for me; one of the guys involved in the project used to be the drummer for a Sacramento based group called Hella - so they've been a known factor for a long time. They're opening for Ministry, which is about the smartest thing Ministry have ever done since Death Grips is just basically angular rap for hipsters and metalheads.

And Mag, if I'm still floating around the forum by then I'll absolutely get ahold of you. Mdf is basically a giant party and its fun to meet up with the east coast internet writer crew, especially considering I travel in with a scumbag posse of my own. Its basically five days of concerts and eating at every place that seems interesting, and then I go home an absolute wreck. We'll see if I have a system in place by next year if I get the chance to go again, third times the charm.

Nah. Not out of any dislike for the genre but moreso because my dalliances across musical genres this year have been strange. I've found my time oddly limited with work so I've been electing to just stick to the tried and true onslaught of a billion different metal releases this year, and if I catch something else in passing then that's great. I just spent like, 50 bucks on music picking up a handful of different 2017 metal albums alongside Anathema's new one. Of course now that I've said so, I'm sure all of my other writer friends will jump my shit for not knowing about it.

SO...

this is where things have been going?


Recently turned 18. Not as scary as I thought.
Just somewhat ignore the law of 'Adult' and you wil be fine.

SO...

How's Life?

Recently graduated High School, took Japanese classes, been a Hiro Hamada nut since 2015, my old account still lurks here...
and I'm enjoying the PC Version of TM2, as well as modding it...
i recently got TM1 off amazon, and beat the game with Hammerhead (SERIOUSLY... Who goes to TM just for TIRES?!)
back in december, we got a brown pomeranian puppy...
My mom got sent to the hospital in May, and got out A MONTH later...

And since September 2016, I have been having a MASSIVE online war with a woman from Japan about 3d Models of Hiro Hamada for Miku Miku Dance (Look at my avatar and signature), combined with a MASSIVE character shipping war over Hiro with her as well. It is STILL going, and the war is not looking pretty for either sides.

So, My 2017 has been...

...'Well' Smiley
