Re: Chill out, already (Everybody Calm Down reviews)

It's a lot easier for every instrument to stay together if they're all played together by different people who listen to each other. That, my fine purple androgynous dinosaur person, is an opinion, not a fact. From my point of view, it is the opposite that is true... I find it WAY easier to have ti...

Re: Chill out, already (Everybody Calm Down reviews)

nyjm: There is some guitar part in there, clean, I assumed power chords by the pitches I could hear. Yeah, my "reviews" were first impressions as I listened... just take it. Take it, take it like a man with a clean guitar tone that didn't work for me. I mean, if you don't HAVE a clean guitar track y...

Re: Chill out, already (Everybody Calm Down reviews)

To celebrate the fact that for some odd reason I wrote some stuff for this fight last night at around 4 pm... and finished it around 11-12 whatever it was... AND we’re mere days away from the start of the regular season... I present my reviewing format for this fight: I shall provide initial, first ...

Death Magnetic

Fucking awesome album. Yeah, yah, there are technical issues for the nerds to get hung up on. Yeah, the snare sound was sounding weak to me on first listen (no more though). Yes, I could do without Unforgiven 3 (1 or 2 for that matter). But I listen to this and wonder why the hell the world had to e...

Re: a digital 4-track the size of a nintendo ds

I use mine all the time. I used it today to learn tunes while riding on a a three hour ferry trip. The quick consumption of batteries is irritating, but it's pretty cool as a guitar practice thing-ga-ma-jig.

I was working a long shift in a kitchen. We were short staffed, so I had worked 3 weeks straight, and on the day in question (aug 17!) I said "fuck it" I'm going out! So, I went to the bar... in the same place I worked. I rarely went out. hah. She was playing pool with two friends, saw me and said (...
