also eating lindt swiss 65% cocoa milk chocolate, its so good, very nice Swiss milk chocolate start with extra chocolate taste. sounds crazy but so good imo. im British but i still prefer this over dairy milk. dairy milk is good but imo this is better. 

also had pizza hut Hawaiian pizza last week(was the kids choice ūüėę but at least they didn't lob so much on the floor or each other) also had potato wedges, natchos, fajita chicken chunks, and pepsi. which worked well. although uk soft drinks are rubbish imo these days, im sure theyve taken 40% of sugar from pepsi, its just not the same, had pepsi max other day and it tasted as good as pepsi. never was the case imo before the recipe change. out of interest does anyone else have this issue with soft drinks or is it just me?

Hot sausage at the boardwalk

That sounds tasty, put some lettuce and pickles on there and I'll take one as well. Just finished up a quick breakfast of frozen pastries and apple sausage. We're about to be on our way to our fr

A gyro or gyros is a Greek dish made from meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie. Like shawarma and tacos al pastor, it is derived from the lamb-based doner kebab. Pita, lamb, veggies, tatziki sauce.

Greek food is awesome, I love all of it: gyros, souvlaki, moussaka, spanikopita, those lemon potatoes...I just really like that whole Mediterranean flavor profile.

My first wife happened to be Greek as well, she was not so awesome. She did give me a wonderful daughter though so there is that. My daughter's been estranged from her mother for several years now unfortunately, she says it's just not worth the trouble as her mom goes out of her way to make everything so difficult. Psycho bitch is the phrase I generally use. I sure can pick 'em. 

Years later I took my Kiwi wife to a Greek seafood restaurant one time and they brought her grilled branzino with the head and tail still on. She was so shocked she let out a blood curdling scream right in the middle of the dining room. The owner came over to see what was wrong (he probably thought she had seen a rat or something) and I had him take it back to the kitchen and have them filet it up for her. She ate it, but in her embarrassment I don't think she enjoyed it. Naturally this was all my fault for picking that restaurant. Should have just gone out for gyros!

You'd figure growing up on a pacific island she'd be more used to whole, grilled fish? Or maybe that's just my predjudice talking.

One thing I hate living in the north of Sweden is the shortage of fresh fish. Most things that arent salmon is very expensive or usually very frozen once it gets here. The west coast like Gothenburg has all the fresh fish and seafood ūüėč Unfortunately it's filled with Gothenburgians.

Really nice long hair? Vintage square-format cameras? Dreams of pop stardom?

Alright Johan I'll bite, what's the deal with Gothenburgians?

Haha well, nothing really. But they have the reputation of being really jovial and happy and kind of smug, and really keen on word puns. All things considered a no-no if you're a grumpy, quiet northerner. But no, it's mostly some friendly ribbing.

But of course, then there's always this atrocity that you can hold against the Gothenburgians.

And of course the crappiest swedish band of the 90's

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.¬†¬†"Ignorance"¬†&¬†"Surf¬†Nicaragura"¬†did a great job of establishing the band, whereas¬†"The American Way"¬†just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.¬† A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.¬† 2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.¬† A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some¬†modern¬†thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.¬† That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.¬† Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.¬† There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.¬† The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious.
