Yeah it's a strange one - either really late evenings after sunset, or at dark o'clock in the morning just before sunset, south of the handle of The Plough. Depending on your latitude it's either midway between the horizon & the constellation, or juuuuust above the horizon line.

Hoping for better luck tonight, the rainclouds are blowing away !

Just when I thought that Pestilence would have a member (besides Mameli) that plays on two consecutive albums they have a new drummer.

How is Pestilence still a thing? At this point there are probably bigger audiences at Threatin shows.

I've seen Pestilence a couple times since the first comeback and I have to say at the current comeback is the best version I've seen.

Has anyone here been to a drive in/social distancing enforced type concert as of late ?

I'm asking because I'm thinking about attending one soon and I'm curious with respect to the opinions of others who have experienced it firsthand .

I have been abstaining from news. Its depressing and I realized it doesn't improve my life to be informed. I was shocked to learn Ron Jeremy is in jail. He is in legitimate lock up in L.A., because he has been accused of sexually assaulting three women.

The government have said that car MOT (sortof state-mandated roadworthiness tests) extensions for COVID expires and the end of July. I took mine in today, and holy shit is passing it going to cost some gold. The man at the garage just looks sorrowful and said 'turns out to be a bit of a money pit, this, doesn't it ?'.

All four brakes degraded because of road mud / stone, one wheel fused to its drum, and two of the tires worn in an interestingly uneven pattern suggestive of bad tracking. Oh, and the entire handbrake mechanism was gunked up beyond belief.

Typically, it drives FINE - on the road, off the road, wet, dry, mud, gravel, whatever. Fine.

Live in the country, they said :lol:

Wait, really?

Last I heard of him he was at the Tenacious D show I was at and barely hifived him on the way out in 2012.

Yeah as much of a cunt as Mameli is I'll give him credit where it's due - the current version of Pestilence is an absolutely killer live act. My jaw was on the floor when I caught them last year, and best of all he didn't even whine about having to play old songs! In fact I don't think they played a single song that wasn't from Consuming or Testimony...always a plus.

In Sydney today, despite the threat of a second wave lockdown from covid, a large group of protesters have decided to parade a black lives matter protest march. What the fuck is wrong with these people?

They did a big protest there a few weeks ago too, Terri. Had masks, did a good job socially distancing. No outbreak from it. Makes sense to do it again, especially when this

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-n ... VnKRLDQQLM

is almost as fucked as George Floyd.

All up, be nice if conservatives were consistent with their concern for life. I don't recall seeing any complaints from the right when we sold a heap of weapons to Saudi Arabia, or when we helped bomb Libya back to the stone age, etc etc.

There's definitely a risk to the protesting like anything, but with the masks it seems to be pretty safe, from everything I've seen here in the US. I did a few myself in June.

I'm back in China now and currently quarantining in a hotel. It's really noticeable that in Asia and other places where people were happy to wear masks, this has quieted down much faster than elsewhere. In most towns and cities, people are now at the point where they don't even need to wear a mask in public, yet we were still greeted at the airport by people in Hazmat suits swab-testing us. Sticking to the safety procedures will work in the end.

A lot of other countries did it much better than we did in the US, it seems. There needed to be a better more coordinated response from every state and the government.

Don't make the same mistake as the German government, don't talk about the coronavirus crisis in the past tense. Having done well so far means nothing if you at some point randomly declare the worst to be over without anything actually being solved. Germany now has some of the highest infection rates since the beginning of the crisis because the government decided we did so well we need to pat ourselves on the back and rest on our laurels even though the pandemic is still in full swing.

Or, in fewer words: I'll reserve judgement on which countries did it better than others for when the pandemic is over.

droneriot speaks the truth here. One of the worst things a government can do at this point is relaxing. Countries with previously "good numbers" when it comes to infection and death, now start to feel the effect of getting comfortable and opening up again.

That is not enough. People tend to make rather stupid decisions. People would like all return to normal. Get rid of those pesky annoying masks, get rid of the social distancing and the inability to have ... fun. Something as fleeting as a virus can be ignored quite easily. If you add the "low mortality" -- let us all ignore all the negative impacts an infection can have on your body -- to this, then who would not agree that it is something a few people perceive as a risk worth taking.

I've been looking into Kiesel guitars for the last few days and I must say that if I ever buy a new guitar, it will be a Kiesel. I found out about them through Archspire (they're endorsers of Kiesel) and I was kinda sceptical at first due to the relatively low prices. However, I'm currently watching an hour long tour of the Kiesel custom shop (which includes a lot of information about the build process and how they are able to sell these guitars for a reasonable price) and I'm convinced that these are some of the best and coolest guitars available.

Here's the tour for those of you who are interested: https://youtu.be/u0EYSpQy_Yk

I am not sure why, but it was fairly easy to get a response from musicians that I admire on Myspace. I used to talk to Trey Azagoth almost every morning. I would receive a response back around 530 EST. I always thought he must be getting up for his real world job. Although I never asked. He would go on and on about Doom and had a really sick looking custom 80s guitar. I have never ever seen him playing it live, but it looked like something CC Deville would have had back in the day.
The original guitarist Paul Reynolds of Flock of Seagulls had tons of stories to tell and sent me a shitload of backstage and live photos of himself. Such a cool guy. Thought his guitar playing was very unique when he came out.
The singer of Romeo Void wrote me a few times. She was pretty cool. Usually just short little responses, but she still took the time to write back
My own curiosities drive me to contact them, regarding the background of a song, or a guitar tone that was used. I would rather hear it directly from them.

^this has changed a bit with bandcamp. At least this is my impressions. But then, the focus of bandcamp is to encourage people to buy stuff ... so.

Im not as much of a fan of Testimony as some people are but they especially nailed the songs from that album.

A senator in Berlin's socialist government made a strict law against greedy landlords. Then got caught embezzling thousands of taxpayer euros. That's so textbook you could almost have predicted it.

This was my point. Australia looked like we were through it, and then Victoria has really blown up with it. New South Wales is hovering around 20 cases a day, and it;s been threatening to blow up for the last month. I have no problem with protests, they do a lot of good to the causes they represent. But there is a time and a place to do it, and now is not that time.

I just finished reading Paul Stanley's book. He went through a lot of shit as a child, especially having microtia. I thought I knew a lot about Kiss, but I didn't know anything about Paul's childhood. Really cool that all of the shit that he went through, he rose above everything.

This made me think of something similar I had happen to me about a year ago. There is someone who has had a huge personal impact on me in developing a particular skill and pastime of mine. The individual in question has been at the top of his field for probably the last thirty years. He might prefer to remain anonymous, which is why the description will be intentionally general and nondescript. Nevertheless, I sent him an email expressing my gratitude for his influence and inspiration in this particular regard. To my surprise, he responded and we have been able to have some good correspondence. Not only that, but he was also kind enough to send me an autographed version of his unquestionable magnum opus.

The work in question has long been out of print so the only means of acquiring it was through the author himself. I have to confess, months later, that there seems to be... some sort of cumulative delight with each reflection I give to this one in a million occurrence. Truly remarkable, personally for me, and the closest thing to meeting the legend himself without actually meeting in person.

My curiosity is very peaked. Very cool experience. When I was in the military, the singer for Acheron sent me their entire discography and some stickers on his dime. It's been over 10 years now, but I never forget that he did that. At the time it was very appreciated and still is.

He also did an audiobook version of it, and it is incredible. Someone put together some selections of it where he talks about each member of Kiss, and the one on Peter Criss is the best of them.

That's awesome right there. Since you inquired, it was the legendary and fantastic Cardshark. In the opinion of one connoisseur, "the greatest book on sleight of hand with cards ever written." It felt like such a steal for the price I was able to acquire it as well, especially considering its then (Maybe still now, who knows) out-of-print status. I recall a particularly bad trip where I got into a long hypothetical conversation with someone and began suggesting that were there ever to be some sort of government-wide confiscation of suspicious items, it would be somewhere on the list. It just felt like such a steal because it was literally the only means to acquire it, or else pay upwards of $400 through eBay.

It contains some very arcane and esoteric sleights that you rarely see used, i.e. a four for four switch that was originally devised in the early 1940's by two authorities on the subject using a specifically prepared deck--but the author adapted this particular sleight to be used in any circumstances and FASDIU (From a shuffled deck in use). Also within, you will find the real, honest-to-God most effective gambling demonstration you'll ever perform. It's fittingly the last item in the book, and consequently the most difficult. I spent 20 minutes a day, morning and night, for a solid year to master it before I ever unveiled it for anyone publicly. I wanted to have it right and scorned the thought of presenting anything less than having perfectly down pat technique and presentation. It pays to have a lot of respect for the craft, and your audience learns to become more invested and appreciative in the long run than if you just slap something together impromptu that you probably spent no more than 15 minutes worth of practice one time on. Overall, it's one of those subjects that a lot of people have a great deal of curiosity about because of its inherently covert nature, but in my estimation its one of the more honest practices out there. Nothing could be more sincere and candid than telling someone you will deceive them in advance and then proceed to do so in the next few moments.

Edit: Yeah I Just checked and it's still out of print, and only 1 copy selling on eBay right now in the time I had to look and it looks like it's at $1,008 right now. For the average and upper-level intermediate card man, any price is justifiable I suppose as long as you can get something you'll use out of the material. Or so they so and so I've heard it put.

I began rereading the Asterix-comics this spring, after not having read them for about 15 years/after I moved out from my parents. They're even more fun now than when I was a child, there are tons of things I can much better appreciate now.
Then a friend asked how many movies had been made, and I checked IMDb. Found out there'd been made two computer-animated movies. Checked them out and could only conclude that those are the two best Asterix-movies made after the old Asterix and Cleopatra animated movie, as well as The 12 Tasks.
Read some reviews where everybody seemed to rave about this Alexandre Astier-guy who's behind the movies. They especially kept bringing up some show called Kaamelott.
One thing led to the other, and now this weekend I've been binging Kaamelott. I feel that escalated pretty quickly, haha.

A new pet hate for today - people that add (live) to the end of song titles on live albums & submit that to Gracenote.

IT'S ON A LIVE ALBUM OF COURSE IT'S LIVE /rage

Inexplicably, some Darkthrone albums on Spotify have "(studio)" tagged at the end - of each track, of course.

Ah yes, the studio version of Transilvanian Hunger, as opposed to the very famous live version. :roll:

OK, I now have Lyme Disease. Caught it very early, so no severe problems to be expected, and I just had the first dose of antibiotics. Wear long pants in the forest and tall grass, people, if there are ticks and germs around. I did, and they didn't help, but still.

Nearly as idiotic as telling us that this is the "(album version)" of 'Kathaarian Life Code'.

I checked to make sure, but unfortunately that same distinction of "(studio)" is not there on any Burzum songs on Spotify. Oh how I wish it did.

Oh christ, hopefully it all goes well. Friend of my brother's got it and he landed in the hospital with a tube hooked up and now he's unemployable because of the whole ordeal.

He's doing well at least though.

I interviewed someone years ago who had Lyme and it'd gotten really bad. Since then, that has been one of my primary fears.

I spend a lot of time at the beach as opposed to forests though, so I haven't been as at risk yet.

Lyme disease is usually easily cured by antibiotics, and is only serious if untreated. The thing you need to be worried about is the encephalitis, which you can contract even faster from being in contact with "castor bean ticks". There's a vaccine for it, however, unlike for lyme disease.
