  1. Hey folks, just swinging by quickly to say hi. I'll be away for a while longer... not that it particularly matters... lots going on here. The little girl turned one last week, the young lad is turning eleven this weekend, and we've just agreed to relocate a couple hours farther north for a good job opportunity for my wife. I hate moving but it looks to be a better situation for all of us. Probably making it happen in late June. In the meantime I'm working on an illustration project and a couple of recording things which will probably be shared here at some point. Hope everyone is well, best wishes, and I'm off to continue my walk around the outer borders.
  2. Basically the same, just different faces on the t-shirts.
  3. Is true. Before I found Metallica, GNR, and Rush in 1990ish, I was listening to New Kids On The Block. And, remember well the lesson of Dirty Diana.
  4. You describe it well. I've lived in a lot of different dwellings in a few towns and I've been back by some of them. It's always weird; it's never home. Seeing it hollowed out that way must be an extra punch in the gut.
  5. Return To Forever - Where Have I Known You Before Chopin - Nocturnes
  6. Putting up with posts like this has got to be worth a tenner.
  7. You know, there's something to this. Argument subscription plus one-time fees. Payable in $AUD. I can hear the money being printed now.
  8. Still haven't heard this. I thought Cosmovore was great, Providence not so much. I've had a shitty combination lately of less time to spend listening to new stuff and less enjoyment when I get to it, but if you think something is a bit too technical, then there's a chance I'll think it's just technical enough
  9. Ozzy's been dead for a long time, they just taxidermied his corpse and installed some animatronic stuff so they could keep him moving around well enough to tour.
  10. "Swallow", 30 x 30, oil on canvas. Cover illustration for an upcoming album by Solemnity, UK melodic DM.
  11. RIITIIR turned into a minor Enslaved binge: Axioma Ethica Odini Eld Mardraum I imagine I'll be picking this back up tomorrow.
  12. Bethlehem - Dark Metal Enslaved - RIITIIR ...actually really digging this one tonight, for maybe the first time. Still could do without some of these Kermit The Frog clean vocals.
  13. Evoken - Hypnagogia My Dying Bride - The Dreadful Hours
  14. I don't know what any of this means, but congratulations, I think.
  15. Nothing they did has aged well IMO. I got into them along with all the other Gothenburg stuff, but somewhere along the way it started sounding like bubblegum. Even Jester Race and the EPs don't make the cut for me anymore. I can't say that completely makes sense, because I still like a bunch of other old melodeath, but such is life.
  16. Return To Forever - Where Have I Known You Before Return To Forever - Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy Return To Forever - No Mystery
  17. Ivar Bjørnson and Einar Selvik - Hugsjá Wardruna - Kvitravn
  18. Gorguts - Pleiades' Dust Zhrine - Unortheta
  19. Oh right... Celcius. Yeah, the wind chill got down there on Mt Washington. I think it was some kind of record.
