The fact that my computer is now so old and slow and browsers are now such memory-hogs, that listening to music while browsing the internet is now a difficult chore for me. :bouville:

My guitarist is always sending goofy pictures out to multiple people, and I am ALWAYS getting texts from unknown numbers responding to it.

I hate that my job gives me shitty hours which makes living at home suck because I can't get my mom off my back sometimes.

I wish I could just find a decent full time job that would give me a steady schedule.

We could probably have a sub-'hate' thread that's dedicated to just discussing our jobs, the economy, unemployment, how job searching sucks, what we hate about our jobs, etc.

Where do you work and how do they schedule you?

You're young, so finding something steady will eventually happen. Some places don't like to schedule younger people steadily since they're seen as inexperienced and unreliable. I'm not saying that's what you are but unfortunately that's how it goes at many places.

I work for CVS Pharmacy as a Pharmacy Technician.

I have open availability and THERE IS NO RHYME OR REASON FOR MY HOURS! They change every fucking week almost.

Also I've been at the job for a year and half and they know I'm good and theres only like 7 people in the pharmacy anyway.

I'm getting totally disillusioned with modern metal fans. Reading the Dragonforce thread on MA gives me a headache. I also can't deal with how many terrible bands get praise (looking at you Iron Dogs and Ranger (Ranger isn't terrible, but they steal riffs and aren't that interesting)), while less original yet better bands get slagged on constantly (Skull Fist, Cauldron, etc.). I'm 100% convinced it's a popularity thing. I know people say that it's not about how obscure a band is, but it most definitely is.

Even browsing /r/powermetal, you can see how there are quite a few people who hate Dragonforce yet love power metal, even though Dragonforce is just a faster, more intense, catchier version of 99% of power metal. HammerFall is another casualty, but I've given up on people liking them. Metal should be fun, and those bands make it fun, but that's no grvm enough.

This is actually the one reason I love that I run a 'zine, because even though nobody agrees with most of my opinions, I feel they're pretty worthwhile. Songwriting, memorability, and quality riffs > everything else in metal. Ironically, I actually have a buddy at school that has almost identical taste to what I like (he likes more doom and less power metal than I do, but we worship most of the same bands otherwise).

I decided to make a smoothie with my mom's nutrisystem bullet juicer thing. Load it up with an apple, strawberries, and grapes, and I cut all of it into small pieces. Follow all instructions, set it on the thing and it starts blending. It kept on blending for like 5 minutes, which I thought was unusual but whatever. Decided to go to my room and wait until I heard it stop. 5 minutes later I hear a loud thud and walk outside. The cup got flung into the wall, the blender thing is smoking, and there's juice on every inch of the fucking kitchen. It took an hour clean. I'm glad I wasn't in the kitchen when I happened though.

Dick Masterson. He just comes across as way too much of a scumbag. I know part of his character is the whole "Men are better than women" thing, which I get. I actually found his Dr. Phil appearence some years back pretty amusing at times. But he does a podcast now with Maddox (the dude behind The Best Page In the Universe and The Alphabet of Manliness), which is cool because Maddox makes me laugh, but then when Dick Masteron speaks it's like "Ugh, this asshole?". I don't know, he just comes across as really scummy even outside of his "Men are better than women" shtick. So maybe I don't hate him, more just kind of annoyed by him.

Dick Masterson on Dr. Phil was awesome. He succeeded brilliantly in pissing off all the annoying, "I'll clap after every sentence Dr. Phil completes" women that he always attracts and has in his audience.

Dr. Phil didn't have any answer for him, either. He kind of went in there and stole the program if I remember.

Outside of that, I've never paid attention to him.

I know exactly what you mean. I hate speaking on the phone with people. It just makes me uncomfortable to be talking to someone but without us being able to see each other and body language and such. If we're going to impersonally talk just friggin' email me so I can think about what I want to say, it'll be faster for the both of us and I'll probably get back to you sooner.

I hate talking to people on the phone at my job in the pharmacy who don't know how to end a conversation or even say what they wanted to. So I instead have to play 20 questions and just guess what they want.

Most people won't even say their names but instead just say what they want so I'll have to be like "And who are you?"

If its soemone who I don't want to talk to at the time I can just let it roll and hear whats up instead of trying to read into a text message.

Sarcasm. I made it through the whole process only to have some new VISA verification thing at the end that when I out all my info in it said I was wrong. One time I got through it to get one set of tickets (Green Bay at Buffalo in December) the second time I couldn't get through (Miami at Buffalo in September). Then I lost the Miami tickets. It was some presale and none are available now.

Sarcasm and very tired because I went to bed at four and had to get up at eight-thirty for the presale.

We've had various levels of verification over the years. It seems to change all the time. Usually during a crunch-time like today. And I wouldn't mind it if it hadn't said my correct information was incorrect. Or, if the second time I clicked on the same button that I clicked the first time and was able to bypass it worked.

Yup. I was told that I can't compare bands of different subgenres. Apparently it's impossible to determine if Iron Maiden is better than Havok or not. It's not even so much what they're saying as how they say it:

They're not even comparable because they're not even in the same subgenre of metal. What the hell are you doing?

Agreed, while they use black metal techniques I feel like their compositions have dark parts but ultimately move towards more 'uplifting' elements and for the most part lack feeling of total despair that most Scandinavian BM brings. I think a big part of their wide appeal is that there is something to their sound that feels life affirming.

Every one of my favourite distros is having amazing sales on either now, or in the coming weeks. Combine that with the fact that from July 22-September 16, there are 8 new releases coming out that I want, and I'm going to be quite poor.

I don't mind making a big order once in a while, but this is just getting out of hand.

To be fair, only one of them is a true sale. The other two are just distro updates (which are few and far between for those distros, just always high in quality).

There are even black metal bands that don't need to go though the whole corpse paint thing. Like Samuel is awesome. or Nachtmystium, Emperor, etc...

Im not saying corpse paint is necessarily bad thing.... Only that it isnt my thing. If you feel more comfortable putting on white face paint and making yourself look like a zombie or something, uhh.. more power to you? I feel more comfortable in the clothes I wear and without face paint because that's who I am. I don't go to concerts to make a fashion statement, I go to listen to the music and see the performance for bands that I like.

Emperor wore corpse paint up through their first tour in 1993 and stopped afterward. However, you shouldn't assume that people are trying to make a fashion statement because they don't dress like you do at shows. It's just as stupid as if those people were assuming you aren't into the bands because you dress casually.

I dislike some things about Metal Archives, but not this. The posters there are very prone to actually flesh out their ideas and generate discussion. We could use more of that around here.

Yes, we could use some more in depth discussion here, but what I dislike about Metal Archives is that everything seems so forced. The mods there are so ridiculously strict on the "discussion" that it seems like everybody is pressured into making unnecessarily long posts for the sake of doing so.

Point me to a 90s Norwegian black metal band that, at any time, played a passage like the 4:25 - 8:00 passage in The Pecan Tree.

Perhaps not as beautiful sounding and the keys are absent, but Ulver played a somewhat similar style to that part on their demo, Vargnatt. My issue with Deafheaven is not how they look but how they incorporate shoegaze with black metal. As I've said before, the genres are polar opposites, and although I can see how that might be interesting to some people, it just doesn't work for me. I like them separately, not together.

Completely agree. I wasnt making an assumption that people should all dress like me. I dont have any problem with people wearing corpse paint, or dressing goth, or however people want to dress. If dressing like that makes them feel comfortable and feel like themselves, then great keep doing that. Likewise no one should have a problem with me showing up to a metal concert in normal street clothes either. I've actually had people make negative comments about me not looking metal. My response was simply "since when has Metal Music become some sort of fashion show?"

Yeah Emperor stopped wearing it when it became trendy to wear it. That was awesome of them.

I understand that. I actually don't have an issue with combining black metal and shoegaze. I think Alcest did it beautifully earlier in their career. My issue with Sunbather isn't that, it's how they did it. It feels incredibly forced and uninspired to me. And very rudimentary in nearly every respect.

Of all the pieces of art that have come, and are coming, out of metal, I don't understand why this one had to make such a ridiculous splash.

Why is it beneath some people to simply treat others right? Assholes like that need to be gutted like fish

When a conversation starts with someone (regardless of if it was initiated by me or not), I make a habit of either giving them a complement or making it seem like I am genuinely interested in them. Do I really care? No, but it makes them feel better about life, and oftentimes has positive outcome for me.

Like last weekend I went down to Sams Club because i had a directTV 200 dollars GC, but I didnt have a membership there. So I am waiting in line and the person two people in front of me asks for a day pass, and the worker is all pissed and says you have to request that online and she can't do anything for him. And then her and the customer get in this shouting match and he walks off telling her to fuck off and that he will never come back. Something like that... Anyways I heard everything she said so I knew I probably wasnt going to get a day pass either. But I walk up and say "Hi! How has your day been going so far?" and she says something like "Honestly pretty crappy. It's difficult dealing with customers yelling at you all day" and I say "Aww Im really sorry to hear that. You're just doing your job, people should really just treat you with the type of respect they'd like to receive" and she says "That's very kind of you to say... How can I help you" - "Well Im not a member, but would like to look around and maybe buy something today. Could I get a day pass" - and she says "well you are supposed to request that online" and I say "Oh okay, thank you for the information. I sure hope your day turns around" and she says "Hold up... I like you, here let me get you a day pass".

Don't misunderstand what im saying... My motivation isnt manipulation but really just that I would like society operating with some level of common decency. Changing society is a large task, but it can start with me. And a positive side effect of this, is people in turn treat you with the same sort of kindness you've shown them.

While i'm not condoning being outright rude or dismissive, if you're not interested in having a conversation with someone, there's not point at taking it past the "Hi" stage. Then it becomes an awkward conversation for one, or potentially both, sides that no one really wants to be in.

When a conversation starts with someone (regardless of if it was initiated by me or not), I make a habit of either giving them a complement or making it seem like I am genuinely interested in them. Do I really care? No, but it makes them feel better about life, and oftentimes has positive outcome for me.

And frankly they should know im not genuinely interested in what they say because typically they are strangers or someone I am not close too.

So true. I fucking hate that shit especially when their destination that they are turning into is literally 5 feet away from you. Another one that gets me is during rush hour traffic. The light turns green and everyone immediately drives the 2 and 1/2 foot distance into the intersection, blocking it. Since it's rush hour, traffic isn't moving, so the light turns red with the intersection blocked. The light turns green for the people waiting to just cross the intersection but they can't because it's being blocked but they don't give a shit because the assholes who are blocking the intersection didn't give a shit either; so they go anyways and everything just goes to high hell. Downtown Orlando is a perfect example of that.

I mentioned this in MPF's review thread, but it is something I really hate so I'll post it here too...

I really hate when people say "So you quit [insert band] to join Funeral Age?" First off, I've been in Funeral Age since 2006, so I don't understand how leaving a band in 2013 would fit with this :lol: . Not trying to sound like "WTF, HOW COME YOU DONT KNOW MY BAND!?", but I also hate when after quitting a band (2013) someone asked me "So do you still play music?" Oh no, not at all, all those posts I make about upcoming shows and albums are just a cover up for me doing nothing, that band I quit was life, so I quit that and quit music all together :lol:

People who take everything they read on the internet as fact.

One of my friends linked an article on a site written by a woman who breastfeeds her 12 year old son because she gets sexual pleasure out of it. My friend went on this huge rant about how disgusting it was and how she's fuming mad and going to write the website about it.

If she would've checked one other article on that site, like maybe the one the same author wrote that's linked on the page entitled "Be Sure To Check Your Anus For Brown Recluse Spiders" she'd figure out the site is satire.

Christ.

A facebook "friend" did a similar thing with an article she read about an exceptionally spoiled child who believed she was better than everyone and ruled over her parents and what not. She's obviously never heard of The Onion.

Yes, it is a form of addiction, but it's a different one from what you would typically associate with drugs. You can become addicted to the psychological affects of weed, but there is no physical addiction like there is with amphetamines, cocaine, or heroin.

I agree and disagree. Yes, it's true that weed does not have physical withdrawal symptoms per se, but there are other things that are also textbook examples of addiction that have nothing to do with chemicals at all, such as gambling or overeating. Those addictions are purely behavioral, but what truly relates them to drug addiction is that they are perpetuated by the same root cause as other addictions - a fundamental inability to fully cope with reality and the desire to escape it by repeatedly and knowingly indulging in self-destructive behavior. In other words, drugs that have withdrawal symptoms are harder to kick, but addiction is truly caused by something much deeper than that.

Make no mistake about it - THC alters brain chemistry and thus is one of many addictions that absolutely does have a physical component to it. That said, Bob Saget and Gordo are correct - ain't nobody sucking no dick for some weed - but that still doesn't mean it's not addictive.

Was this a professional moving company? When I moved from Seattle to NY back in 2009, we hired moving company... Every single box was given a number and inventoried. If I recall correctly, I was the one who put the number on each box. I signed off on the number of boxes they picked up, they signed off on that number, and if any box came up missing or lost they were financially liable for it's contents. I didnt have anything lost or stolen, but I did have a few things broken. I wasnt terribly upset they were broken because I knew they were very breakable and likely wouldnt survive the move and I didnt really care to lose them either. The company and I reached a mutual agreement on the amount they would pay me for the broken items and I felt I got the better end of the deal.

It was a professional company and there were numbered tags on the boxes. But the guys loading the boxes into the house were reading the number off as they carried it in and then checking them off the list. So the guy could have easily just called out the number on the playstation box without actually bringing it in, if that makes sense. And I also need to go through the claim process because we had some damage to furniture and a couple broken antique lamps. But they're a big company, so I think they'll be reasonable about the damaged stuff.

Well hopefully it works out for you... Big companies like that have insurance that covers these sort of things, and so they are typically not all that confrontational over claims. I didnt have to deal with stolen packages, but I was also super paranoid over that since my movers were missing teeth and looked like tweekers. I suspect that most moving companies hire tweekers, so perhaps they are use to shit coming up missing. Pro tip - Be nice and curious with them, and don't value your losses like you are trying to make a profit. I think if you are nice and reasonable, then they will want to be nice and reasonable with you in return.

Oh yeah. I'm definitely going to file a claim for the damages and missing stuff. We had insurance on it and since it was a cross-country move so I have 9 months to file the claim. So I am going to be meticulous about going through everything and claiming absolutely everything that has any damage. :allan:

I can get behind this in many cases, but there are occasional instances in which bands turn on what they once stood for, so criticism for that is not unwarranted. Sometimes a band venturing into new territory can suck no matter which way you put it. As for reviews, the way I see it is there are two types of reviewers: subjective and objective. Both can be useful depending on what you are searching for. Objective ones will look at the full picture and can see how other people could enjoy the album even if they didn't find it all that appealing themselves. They review the album for it's musical merits rather than what they might enjoy personally. The subjective reviewers will take a stance that is more aligned to their personal tastes and not so much others' interests. If you're trying to find a band that plays a specific style, a subjective review might be ideal; if you're trying to seek out a different genre or sub-genre than you would normally listen to, an objective review might be more helpful. The shit reviewers are the ones who only take an extreme view - shit or greatest release ever. I can't stand people who will only either rip on an album like it's the worst thing to ever be sent to the press or praise it like it's the best masterpiece ever penned.

For the last year most of the smaller shows I've gone to have been through some new company called Ticketfly. They're much more reasonable with all the service fees and shows have been quite a bit cheaper. Mind you, they don't do the bigger bands.

The only problem I have with them is they charge two or three dollars to send a ticket in the mail or you can print your own for free. I still collect my stubs so I'd prefer the authentic one. But I'm not paying for something that should be free. And the pages you print out can be modified and cut into what looks like an authentic ticket.

The only problem I have with them is they charge two or three dollars to send a ticket in the mail or you can print your own for free. I still collect my stubs so I'd prefer the authentic one. But I'm not paying for something that should be free. And the pages you print out can be modified and cut into what looks like an authentic ticket.

Ticketfly is great. For me though (might be different in the US) its only a dollar for them to mail a ticket.

I've used TicketWeb for one show and TicketMaster for one so far. In the case of the latter I tried TicketFly, but it just redirected to TicketMaster.

Yeah, OK, really seeing what you all mean when you bitch about TM fees in the US:

Ticket Price $89.00 x 1
Service Fee $12.65 x 1
Order Processing Fee $5.05
Delivery via: International Will Call $2.50

What the fuck is the difference between a Service Fee and an Order Processing Fee? Just be fucking honest and call the Service Fee "Commission". We all know that's what it is.


Pretty much the" we're a big corporation gonna fuck you in the ass fees."

Welcome to daily metro Boston area life.

Get caught at an unpaid meter? 30 bucks.
Get caught in a street sweeping zone overnight? 50 bucks.
Get caught in a bus stop? 150 bucks.
Be a royal dick and get caught in a handicap zone with no placard? 400 bucks.

I hate....

- When there are customers in my store and an O'Reillys commercial comes on the radio.
- When a song comes on the radio that starts out really cool, then gets shit when the actual song kicks in.
- When I'm sitting away from the "business zone" here, enjoying lunch, and a customer HAS TO COME DIRECTLY TO ME and wants me to ring them up, then other customers in the store see this and follow suit. 5 minute lunch breaks for the win!

Yeah I got caught in a street sweeping zone this morning. 50. And then the other day I forgot to put my parking permit on after getting back from the store. Go back out 5 minutes later to put it on, already have a fucking ticket. 65

Does your city offer a residential parking permit? Ours are $30 per year and we stick them directly above the inspection sticker. Pretty much need them as every side street in my city is residential parking only.

So, as a followup to my missing PS3.... turns out when the movers loaded our stuff down in Austin they put the PS3 box into a larger box with patio furniture and flower pots from our back patio. So my PS3 was in a box, in a larger box in our garage. I was not expecting box-ception. And just yesterday I got around to the outdoors boxes because we had finally gotten things somewhat situated inside the house. Plugged it all in and it works just fine. We still have some damaged furniture though, so I'm still making a claim.

TL;DR - My PS3 was in a box, in a box. And I hate movers much less than previously.

So I was at Hot topic (they have some nice stuff, shut up), and i'm just dicking around looking at stuff, and there are two women shopping together there (probably friends but it's also possible they are sisters or cousins), and one of them sees a Bring me the Horizon shirt that she likes. Hey, they're not a good band (come at me Manks), but she's a person with opinions so whatever. Anyway, she likes the shirt and then all I heard was "You don't even like Bring me the horizon" from her possible-friend-but-also-possibly-even-relative. She then replies back "I don't need to like the band to buy and wear the shirt", and immediately my blood started boiling and I had an urge to punch this woman in the face for being an idiot. And I don't even like BMTH. I'd probably be more pissed off if it was a band I liked whose shirt she wanted but didn't know them.

Anyway, that bugs me.

I remember those days, when people would wear merch of band "A" yet not even know a single song or anything by them, and just thought it was cool to wear a popular bands shirt.

When I was in Elementary School I wore skateboarding/motocross brand clothing, yet I never did either (I skateboarded in my garage a few timse and on my trampoline, but wasn't an actually "skater"). So it really isn't much different. Just a fad :)
