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.

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.

(READ DESCRIPTION) Nightmare Fuel Non-Horror Movie Scenes

I watched Attack the Block when I was nine, it was the first MA15+ film I’d ever watched (that I can remember). It’s an action sci-fi film (I guess it has elements of horror) but it freaked the hell out of me at the time. One of my favourites now.

What exactly did the scary scenes contain?

People dying.
