    NokturnalBoredom given a Damn from blaaacdoommmmfan in Headphones, amps and other audio gear   
    I just have a shitty $14 pair of Skullcandy earbuds. I don't tend to use headphones very often because I'm always listening to stuff on my turntable and it doesn't have a port for headphones as far as I am aware.

    My turntable is a Fluance RT80. Not the most advanced turntable by far, but does the job for me. I have edifier speakers that are bluetooth capable, but I'm not certain what the model number is for those. I eventually want to upgrade my turntable and give the one I have now to my buddy so he can get into vinyl too, but I'm not sure what I would even buy. Probably an RT81 elite by Fluance as I'm not looking to be shelling out tons of money on a turntable any time soon.

    My room isn't really done up in a metal style persay. I have a lot of byzantine icons because I collect them, but it's just a standard bedroom with a bed, turntable, speakers, and a bookcase. I don't have any of my metal posters up or anything, I keep them all in the records they come in because I am saving them for when we relocate to NY, then I'll put them up. The only poster I have on my wall is my Seinfeld "Chart About Nothing" that links all of the characters to ever appear on Seinfeld together with one another. I also have a signed copy of the script for the first episode of Seinfeld and a few spare LP jackets on display, along with a few of my surviving show ticket stubs and a calendar of the Appalachian trail. My walls are like a greyish-blue color and I have an IKEA kallax shelf to store all of my records on.

    NokturnalBoredom given a Damn from blaaacdoommmmfan in When metal bands p*ssed off there fans by changing style ???????   
    Not gonna lie, I would get the first three Metallica albums on vinyl if I could find originals from the 80s. They're great albums from the infancy of metal and I'm not denying that. I just don't like the direction they went in post Cliff Burton, ...And Justice For All just didn't do much of anything for me & neither did the black album or any of the stuff since then. They were definitely three of my favorite albums in high school, but I sort of overplayed them (I listened to the three of them every day in the 9th grade) so now they're sort of albums that I'd like to have if I could find originals, but I wouldn't go out spending $30 a piece on the 180g reissues.

     
     
    I first got into Slayer through Show No Mercy when I was in the tenth grade, because I was listening to internet radio and heard the song "black magic" and I liked the first two albums, Live Undead, Haunting the Chapel but Reign in Blood did not do it for me because they went full thrash and dropped a lot of their proto-black metal image that they had going on those first two albums. I'm not saying that Reign in Blood was a bad album, again it's just one of those ones that I've listened to so many times that it's sort of stale for me now.

    I've never listened to any Slayer after Reign in Blood (no South of Heaven, no Seasons in the Abyss, none of it). It's not that I don't like Slayer, it's just that I liked their very early stuff a lot more because it was fundamental to the creation of what we now understand to be black metal. Same with Celtic Frost... I like the early stuff up to Into the Pandemonium but as soon as you hit the Cold Lake & Vanity/Nemesis period, I'm no longer interested in them.

    The first two Mercyful Fate albums were amazing as well. I never got into anything they did post Don't Break the Oath though (and am still looking for a copy of Melissa on vinyl)

    The worst thing about being a DM is creating a world, writing out a huge campaign, and then having nobody around to play it because they all went to college. This happened to me and it was irritating as hell, and is what made me put away my D&D rulebooks as something from teenage years now gone.

    The thing is, I probably still have the campaign data somewhere in my house. In some forgotten box in my closet.

    NokturnalBoredom given a Damn from Dead1 in What's on your mind?   
    Dude, don't even think about that shit for any reason. As someone who bought a 9mm carbine and began sticking it in his mouth two years ago "just to see how it felt" as my relationship with someone I wanted to have kids & a life with was falling apart rapidly, please go talk to someone right away. The fucked thing about suicide is that these kinds of thoughts are how it starts and it may seem like a beneficial thing for the family, or a way out, but you have to think about the damage that you'd do to the people who survive you and are going to be asking why you did it, even when your financial situation seems insurmountable & horrible. I promise you that even if you think that you have a good reason, people are going to miss you much more than they're going to be thankful for a life insurance payment.

    I have prior attempts on my own life. I tried to hang myself but the fixture I tried to do it from ended up collapsing. I also tried to OD on drugs and simply just got really high for days (and probably did permanent brain damage and heart damage in the process). I am on meds now that make me realize that suicide is never an option because as bad as things get (and they're going to get bad societally for me in the next few years), I'd rather force the authorities to kill me so I can escape the reeducation camps & political prison than die by my own hand and have the remaining few people who love me wondering why I did it and why I chose to leave them here without me.

    Don't do it. Talk to someone. There are things that are preferable to life and I get it completely, but those things are not here yet although they are in the process of coming down the pipe.

    NokturnalBoredom gave a Damn to Requiem in 80's and 90's metal vs. nowdays metal   
    And that’s perfectly fine because it’s personal taste.
    For me though, albums like ‘De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas’, ‘In the Nightside Eclipse’ and ‘Storm of the Lights Bane’, to name but three, are the near pinnacle of metal evolution and the beginning of its devolution.
    Throw ‘Turn Loose the Swans’, ‘Bloody Kisses’ and hell, even ‘Demanufacture’ in there and we are starting to look at a special time in musical output. 
    Hail 1993-1995.

    NokturnalBoredom given a Damn from Dead1 in Destroyer 666   
    Like I said, the only ones I've heard at this point in time are Wildfire, Call of the Wild, and Phoenix Rising. I'm actually not too up on Destroyer 666, but they're one of those bands that I want to get into because I hear a lot of great things about them and they seem to be on everyone's "best of" lists.

    The other stuff I picked up was Rotting Christ "The Heretics", Panopticon "Social Disservices", Drudkh "A Furrow Cut Short", and Cemetery Lust "Screams of the Violated" (Because Hell's Headbangers the label puts out some great material like Acid Witch, Nekrofilth, and Nupraptor and I want to support them even if I've never heard of the band before). Usually ever two weeks or so I make an order from Hell's Headbangers. I was ordering stuff from Osmose for a while but it's all super expensive having to convert dollars to euros and for some reason, the last time I ordered something on Osmose, my bank shut my debit card off for "suspected fraudulent activity" because Osmose is based in France. Problem is, Osmose is the only place where I can get stuff like Nokturnal Mortum & Kroda reliably.

    You only get $1 an hour extra to work on a holiday?
    Shit employers in this country would love that, most here pay a minimum of time and a half, some pay as high as double time plus an extra day off for working holidays.

    I'd love to witness a re-enactment especially a Civil War one as they get quite huge by all accounts.

    Closest I ever got to that sort of thing was as a kid, when we'd tag along while my dad did Revolutionary War reenactment. Tents, hasty pudding, britches, a musket I wasn't allowed to play with, triangular bayonets. Ah childhood.

    I've played Magic but it's a money pit.  You literally have to keep buying cards to stay relevant.  That and the scene is full of ultra competitive types which we historical wargamers generally aren't.

    This truly is a great album. Unfortunately, it's the only Cro-Mags album that I have at the moment because it's the only one that I could find. That one track "Two Hours" is pretty relevant to my life, because I always have to stop myself and think "Where do I want to be in two hours? Not sitting in a cell wondering why did I put myself here?"

    I listen to a lot of hardcore in addition to metal. This one is one of my favorites out of all the hardcore albums that I own.
