I dreamt that my Nan and I discovered a bunch of notes written by my own mother detailing her sexual attraction towards me and the fact that she had molested me as a young child. I was obviously disgusted at this, and even more so by the realisation that my father was the better of my parents (yikes). Mum wasn’t home and I dreaded how this discovery would turn my life upside down. Meanwhile, some of my friends were having a graduation (in real life I’ve only recently graduated from high school, woo) party right in my laundry. I walked in triumphantly and said “I got molested!” and they were like “ayyy” and high fived me.
I enjoyed it. It was dumb as shit but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Hated the Palpatine reveal, Rey being a nobody was my absolute favourite thing about TLJ, to see it retconned was saddening, but meh, it’s just a movie. I’ll probably watch it a couple more times regardless of my problems with it.
I actually had to look that term up. Yikes.
Was the bus driver aware this guy was threatening you?
I think so, but he couldn’t exactly do much since he was driving at the time. He didn’t say anything, but neither did anyone else. I feel like they were either scared of him like I was (there were families and everything on the bus, with small children who they probably didn’t want falling in harms way) or they didn’t see what was going on exactly, maybe they thought I had goaded the dude into yelling at me.
As a big Tool fan I was pretty hyped about this album, and thankfully it turned out to be worth the wait. Obviously since I was five when the last album came out I haven’t eagerly awaited the album for thirteen years, but it’s release still felt like a big event to me.
I enjoyed that all of the songs were ten minutes +, with the exceptions of the interludes, which don’t add a whole lot but are nice to have. It’s almost tradition at this point for Tool albums to have extraneous instrumental interludes. Sadly they aren’t as memorable as pieces like Intermission or Eon Blue Apocalypse from previous albums, but they’re nice to have anyway.
The songs themselves are insanely good, my favourites being Pneuma and 7empest (corny title aside), which seem to be the popular choices across the internet, but really all the songs are incredible.
So far I wouldn’t say that it’s on par with 10 000 Days, my favourite Tool album, but it I still in the same ballpark.
Well worth the wait, I’ve listened to it something like ten times so far.
I was harassed by this ice junkie dude in the bus yesterday. I thought that his expletive filled muttering were him talking to a friend on the phone but then he stood up and yelled at me to “fuck off” despite me having not done anything. He swung his backpack at me a couple times but I wasn’t hurt. He looked to be in his mid twenties but he had cold sores all over his face and was missing several teeth. I decided to get off the bus at the nearest stop and as I stood up to do so he thought I was going to attack him so I had to tell him that wasn’t my intention. As I walked off the bus he shouted at me to “go back to England.” I’ve never stepped foot in the UK all my life.
Crazy and racist, charming man.
It’s ascended to my favourite Death Grips album as of late. As always I love Rides vocal performance on all songs, and Flatlander do great with the production side of things. I love the Björk samples on disc one, they fit the music really well and give it an extra layer. There’s actually a tonne more live instrument usage on disc two which is also a nice addition. On GP is a great way to end the album and Death Grips 2.0 provides a great postscript/coda.
Great album, I highly recommend it.
How did you manage to see it so early?
Came out on the 24th in Australia.
I wish the people were still here.
I got my braces off, actually after less time than I expected. My teeth feel so smooth now!
Alien 3 is one that I love, maybe more than Aliens. Back to the Future 3 is pretty good too.
Watched all of Community, which I enjoyed a heap, particularly seasons 1-4, after which I feel it lost a lot of its charm. The loss of characters didn’t help either, but it was still good. The finale was extremely creative in particlular.
7/10 probably, overall.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)
I enjoyed it quite a bit. I ended up seeing this later than I’d hoped because I missed my train to the cinemas the first time. Anyway, it was pretty good, I’d rank it fourth out of all the Spidey films.
Six out of ten.
I snuck into the house of a girl who goes to my school and brutally attacked her with a metal baseball bat while she and her boyfriend pleaded for me to stop. Once I’d killed her I started screaming in remorse since I regretted it. I woke up feeling both relieved that it hadn’t actually happened and disturbed that I could dream of such a thing.
A bit over a week ago I worked up the courage to ask out a girl that I’ve liked for a couple of months, and she said yes. Despite being seventeen it was the first time I’d ever asked out a girl, and I’m glad that it was worth it.
Have you ever heard of ‘You’re the Guinea pig’? It is an obscure PSA believed to originate from Singapore, in which a man is strapped to a chair whilst being forced to take a drug which makes him violently convulse until his eyes roll into his head! All the while accompanied by some unnerving music which was either made for the PSA, or has completely faded into obscurity.
PS, I have no tolerance (or guts) for seeing it again so please don’t add any pictures or gifs.
Man, shit like that used to freak me the hell out. It probably still would, I just stopped watching.
Hang on, what the fuck happened while I’ve been very infrequently posting? Frink’s gone, Collipso, Possessed and more. Why are so many long standing members being banned?
Is there a thread for complimenting yourself? I don’t mean in a narcissistic way, just a general self-affirmation thread. It seems most of the members here, including me, are very self-depreciating.
Bedrock - Young Money
One Time - Justin Bieber
2009 was definitely a catchy year in pop music. Terrible, but catchy.

My mum confused it with an FPS and thought it was called “Mind Craft” and was extremely violent.
Sounds more like a horror game than an fps.
Maybe, I don’t really play video games so I’m not well versed in the linguo.
My brother loves it though.
At the turn of the decade I, for whatever reason (probably because all of my friends were playing it) really wanted the game, but my mum confused it with an FPS and thought it was called “Mind Craft” and was extremely violent. By the time I had convinced her otherwise I didn’t care enough to get the game.
I’ve gotten a haircut that I’m really unhappy with, I guess I’ll have to wait until it grows back out to fix it.
