Yes, I'm familiar with this story. Money turns people into animals. Guy where I work is going through an inheritance battle with the rest of his siblings. Has torn the family apart. Very sad.

Grandpa did some serious poo in the cold war, worked with the NIKE systems. But he wasn't a flagtard. He served his country, then became an accountant. He did visit the American Legion on the weekends, he liked the dinners and breakfasts there. He was a steadfast supporter of the organization and was well liked. He never saluted anyone, it was more a community thing for him.

He did funny poo with his medals. Made a marksmanship one a JIM BEAM marksmanship medal. He had some hardcore arts and crafts skills. He mostly used them to make the amazon books he and grandma sold bulletproof. What he would do is cut down a ritz cracker box, and use it to protect the spines and edges of the books.

This got them a lot of five stars, and a few expected one stars. Some people just aren't happy.

One of the greedy uncles was pissed because apparently some medals go for good money at auction or whatever. I was super amused that grandpa got to tweak him from beyond.

I got nothing, but hey, I wasn't expecting anything.

The one thing I wanted, I did eventually get when grandma moved to Pennsylvania, so I guess I win. (The B&D toaster oven) Grandma had been using it as a plant stand. She's malicious like that.

The first Stones manager was wrong. The Verve cleared the rights for their sample, there was no "too long" exception. Problem is, lawyers can hold up poo in court forever. No judgement was ever rendered, but the Settlement was pretty bad for The Verve.

Hell, my lawyer dropped me a year ago now, and I STILL have to tell social security they dropped me. I'm going to have to ride out to their office and yell at someone in the face.


Anyway, the second manager bragged that he got more out of the settlement than Jagger or Richards. I hope the porcine golly choked on it.


Anyway, I got tired of listening to the neighbor yelling, so I opened my window and blasted "Redneck" by Lamb of God.

They're quiet as church mice now.
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

This electronic mix of seek and destroy is pissing me off because I keep expecting the original song to start, and the sample cuts off at "Alright!"

Static-X apparently played a show on the 23rd.

It's the usual live recording annoyances, you want people to put their damn cell phones down, but if they did, the video wouldn't exist, the sound gets somewhat garbled by the less than impressive cell mic, you get pissed you couldn't be at the show yourself, and the perpetual, you want a slider to shut the audience the golly up.

Still pretty good. I read the guy in the mask is the singer from dope, but he does a hell of a job. Not trying to ape Wayne Static, but still being faithful to the songs themselves.


And he pogo jumps through the hell disco just fine. I always felt Disturbed got the fame Static-X deserved. Deftones kinda got screwed that way too. Great stuff, but not "mainstream" enough.

I also wish I could remove "down with the sickness" from all the mixes on youtube. I am no longer down with the sickness, and wish for a cure.

The cure is still good too.


I shoot the poo with a guy who does youtube mixes, and he said he's gonna try and put less disturbed in his mix. He's replaced them with MSI, which I think is a pretty good choice.


And then there's the witchhouse. I'm still listening to witchhouse, but it's really starting to get samish. Slowed down pop song #43, annoying trap section, Yelling kazoo lady. I get a lot of hearts and likes when I complain about yelling kazoo lady.

that swoop shot over the typewriters, that shows more love for the series than season 8.

Yeah.  Can't say I thought much about the way they struggled to tie up loose ends, particularly the personality transplants that they imposed in order to create some deranged logic that would excuse the dogs breakfast they made of people like Danaerys and even Jon Snow to a lesser extent. 

They should have saved the money they lavished on the last episode and used it for some more beneficial purpose.

I have also read the books and had attributed the failure of the last season to Hollywood writers taking over and applying standard melodrama to the characters.  This seems to have been the case, with much of the plot development not making much sense.

The writer of this article does a far better job of explaining the shift than I could have done.  It does make me curious to know how Martin will make those shifts in character in the final book, if indeed the author of this piece is correct.  I already found the mating of Jon Snow and Danaerys somewhat contrived.  It seemed more a case of "here's two good looking good guys who have not yet hooked up, so why don't we try that for a while?" than there is a compelling reason for it to happen in the arc of the story.

I'm listening to early morning birds.  It's only just light, the time when the color of the vines on the fence turns from dark grey to green.

You had a lot of interesting points up there about the bands you had mentioned 8ully.  I'm a little tired to respond with more content here.
I've been listening to a lot of doom metal and j cole
