    What's on your mind?

    Seems to be the playbook for conservatives everywhere. Delay, reduce, and make more difficult everything and anything that doesn't fit their worldview. In a time where they are rapidly becoming the minority (if they are not already) and their belief system is contrary to popularly held opinion (see abortion, same-sex marriage, healthcare, etc) in the west, I find it unbelievable the amount of power conservative movements still hold. I would like to believe that there will be a massive shift in the next decade or so, but then again I'm surprised that they are still relevant at this point. Apathy on the part of younger voters (45 and under) is to blame in part although not the only factor.

  15. Archgoat - Worship The Eternal Darkness (2021) This album is really good, as expected. They're definitely drifting away from their pure bestial black/war metal sound and incorporating more 2nd wave-ish elements, which is perfectly okay with me.

  17. @ Deadovic I'd like to hope you were just having a bad day and the suicide thing was a bit of hyperbole for dramatic effect. Believe me I know how some women can drive you nuts with their inexorable need to spend money that you don't have simply because they want things and they just don't feel it's fair that they should ever be denied anything that they want. I remember my late wife asking me one time how much money was left at the end of the month so she'd know how much she had available to play with. I showed her that there wasn't anything left over to play with and in fact we were dipping into my savings each month because there was a $300 shortfall. I told her I was waiting for her to finish breast feeding the baby so she could go back to work in the states like she did when she lived in NZ, just as we had discussed before she moved here and got pregnant. None of that mattered to her, it all went in one ear and out the other. She didn't make any effort to change her ridiculous & frivolous spending habits and neither did she make any effort to look for work. Shoppintg on her tablet and watching Netflix was like her full time job, the baby was just her excuse to stay home and do it. I also remember the night I changed the Paypal password without telling her and how mad she got the next day when she went to buy something online and couldn't. But it had to be done. And 3 days later when she started talking to me again she admitted that I had done the right thing. Unfortunately that strategy backfired on me because then she had to make her own Paypal account and she started selling some of the stuff that she had bought to raise money to buy more stuff. It wasn't the stuff itself that she really wanted it was simply the act of locating and acquiring and accumulating that stuff that she was addicted to. The bitch just wanted to buy shit. She ordered a couple hundred plastic mailing envelopes so whenever she sold some of her crap she'd get it all packed up and addressed and ready for shipping and then she'd leave little bundles of joy on the kitchen table for me to take to work with me in the morning so I could mail it off for her when I passed by a post office somewhere in my travels during my day. Guess who paid the shipping costs? Whenever she sold something the payment would go directly into her Paypal account and then she'd use that money to buy more stuff. I was the idiot who got stuck paying to ship it all over the country. But I guess paying her shipping was still a lot cheaper than the phase when she bought like $10,000 worth of cloth diapers (@$50 a pop shipped) and baby clothes. Even as the boy approached 3 and we knew he was going to be potty trained soon she just kept buying, selling & trading the stupid diapers with the beautifl prints that only we ever got to see when we changed him because he had pants covering them up the rest of the time. I still have a bunch of them in a box somewhere because they seem too valuable to just throw away, even though I know I'm never in a million years going to go on that Twinkie Tush website and list them for sale. Same with all her piles of $300-$400 Frye boots she just had to have and then wore once or twice at most. Can't bring myself to just throw away $400 boots even though I'll never figure out how to sell them. I wish I knew a chick who wore size 8.5/9 boots. (NZ 39) It's a sickness and an addiction that destroys lives like alcoholism or drugs or gambling that should be dealt with the same way. They need to have interventions and rehab for shopaholics. Gonna catch flak for this no doubt....but fuck it I'm gonna say it anyway. Deadovic if I were you I would be looking into the pros and cons of divorce, not suicide. True if you divorce her you'll still have to pay her and she'll still be spending your money but at least you should know up front how much it will be every month so you can budget and plan. No woman, or let's say no partner is ever worth killing yourself over.

    What's on your mind?

    What's up boys and girls. Long time no see. Sorry about that. It's been a bit crazy at Casa de Navy for the last few months. I'm not finding a lot of time to jump on line and fuck off. Too many "new" responsibilities caring for others, maintaining the casa, work...etc. Seeing as it is the day before the holiday here and I'm a government worker soaking up a paycheck doing jack shit...might as well let you guys know I'm still alive. It hasn't been all miserable here, I have caught a few shows recently. Made it to Mass Destruction in Atlanta on my birthday. The lineup was mediocre, but I did catch Akhlys, Nuclear Assault, and a few others that were fun. Exciter killed it. I had seen them before and was less than impressed, but they were on point at that show. Caught Napalm Death and Eyehategod which was a decent show. Also Mastodon and Opeth who were doing a fan's request tour (which means they played a decent amount of old stuff). All the shows are slowing down at this point of the year, so a little break before the shows start cranking again for me around March. So I'm still kicking. I'll try to stop by more often if the dark lord allows. To all of you, have a Happy Turkey Day if you are in a country that celebrates it. If not, I hope you are doing well and enjoy the season! I'll be smoking a turkey and drinking copious amounts of bourbon tomorrow, so cheers to you all.

  19. Ghoulgotha - The Deathmass Cloak ...a rec from my pal and yours, good old BlutAusNerd. Nailed this old-school guitar tone straight off the bat. This one's their untouchable classic and one of the best albums to come out of that scene, for my money anyway.

  24. Wearing a band T-shirt or not depends on what I'm up to - and the weather. I have a Terra Tenabrosa shirt that I have never worn because my wife hates the cuckoo. I have never worn a band T-shirt to work either, but that is no longer an issue since - and here is the big news I hinted at a few weeks ago, GG - I saw my last patient 2 days ago and will be retired at the end of the month. I am past official retirement age at 66 and I should think that would officially make me the Oldest Bastard here.

    Yeah that's one of the things that I find most alienating & disturbing about modern society. The only point of being alive is to "power the global economy". It's a lot like the Matrix and I usually hate Matrix comparisons but the people in first world nations exist in a completely fake reality where we're essentially kept asleep and function as batteries to power the economy which serves to enrich less than 1/10th of 1% of the world's population. It's pretty sickening if you actually think about it. But the problem is that we're all so much a part of the system, we exist in it so deeply, that it's impossible to see beyond it.

  37. There's a huge sense of drama to the is thread that points to some underlying problems. I mean if you have stepped away from metal and your friends have turned away from you then it strikes me that they weren't good friends in the first place. Taken at face value your posts suggest you were sick of your life given the theatre around the language you used (guessing English isn't your first language though so may appear more dramatic then you intend). But it sounds like you're happy with your musical tastes now and you should never feel bad about evolving your listening habits.

  42. Yeah, Neurosis, Isis and CUL. Neurosis just sound like Neurosis, but still get credited with having spearheaded what we now call post metal. It is an eye of the beholder kind of thing. I know it when I hear it-long, meandering songs with shifting atmospheres, slow builds and soft/loud dynamics. When I first started dabbling around 2004, it was often called atmospheric sludge or atmospheric hardcore. IMO, it was Isis with Oceanic and developed to it's zenith with their album Panopticon followed by CUL's salvation that created what people refer to as post metal and then inspired so called post black with the likes of WITTR, Altar of Plagues and Agalloch to some extent and of course Deafheaven. The focus got overplayed with euphoric pretty sounds but it gets incorporated into textures that some bands use to good effect (Boris, later YOB). But sometimes gets lost in navel gazing....there are a handful of post metal albums I love and a lot that make me see cross eyed and want to take a hammer and bash my head in if I listen too long. Red Sparowes and Alcest come to mind even though I can tolerate the pretty gazey stuff as a diversion for short periods of time.

  47. Happy Birthday man. I walked across zero bridges when I was in NY. Kind of regret missing so much of it in favour of the generic tourist places (Rockefeller, Ellis Island etc). The future Mrs Macca talks of us going back someday. And @Fraser
