Couple of album/poster-quality shots there. Those bottom two are works of art.

Thanks, little funsized Sony Cybershot 10.2 megapixels still holding up. Maybe one day I will  upgrade to 14 megapixels. I use obsolete stuff, I love uncool stuff. I pull this camera out and people go "You USe A cAmerA???" I'm like "huh?". The looks I get on the subway when I pull out the iPod Classic are beyond weird. Like I'm etheopian or something. Sometimes strangers comment and giggle when I am minding my own business and cycling through on my iPod. They can all die.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Exodus_members

If you go to wikipedia or metal sites it is funny to look at the spreadsheets of certain bands and how they change, merge, etc over time.
Going to see Slayer with Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, Testament in about a month. Should be fun.



These days people switch bands like sports players switch teams. I can't keep up, I use Blabbermouth. The comment sections are on par with MITD memery. The meming in the comments is the main reason to go there. Even if the band is a worthless piece of shit, there is pure gold in the comments more times than none. I don't post/contribute, I just read.

I think Liarpedia's most valuable commodity is seeing who was in what bands at what time. I also like the graphical timelines on band pages. For lots of other info like Political events or backgrounds of Corporate entities the information is obviously a bunch of conveniently produced horseshit.

I have the old 1982-83 Exodus demos with Kirk. I can appreciate it but I can't imagine him playing stuff like Verbal Razors or Objection Overuled. I saw Exodus open for Body Count in 1992, DRI was also on the bill. They had John Tempesta (Testament/White Zombie) on drums at the time, also Rick Hunolt was still in the band.

I recently saw them 2 years ago, Rick was long gone but Tom Hunting was on drums and IMO he is the classic drummer of Exodus, not overly skilled but good, and I like him in Exodus. I also like Zetro as singer, and I am so glad he is back and got to see him atleast one more time.

I can't wait until Slayer are finished and Gary goes back to his band full time. I want to see them all get atleast another 10 years out of Exodus. They all work day jobs except Gary. Steve is a carpenter like Harrison Ford. Also want to add that these guys are very nice and respectful to the fans who still come out 30 years later. Everybody else pussied out or gimmicked it up but they never did.

Have fun at the metal show. I was front row for Testament about this time 2 years ago. Had small camera in my palm, blasted some salvo shots with a push button and got a couple good ones. I didn't have a cellphone in the air, so no obstruction by me. Fuck I hate those people.

No,No, that can't be right, Heather has a Billion listeners in over a Million countries.

You are correct, I had the wrong numbers. I made corrections:

Dave: 25,674 listeners in 42 countries
Heater: One billion listeners in one million countries
Hoagie: 1,734,589 listeners in 574 countries

i still listen to the first 4 and Garage Days albums..anything else is pure..garbage

They recorded Ride The Lightning slow and sped it up during playback. Everything is up a step. <cheatcode enabled>

On And Justice For All the drums were recorded in small sections and spliced together like modern pop singers do. Lars sucks.

I still like KEA with the original tracklist but will never listen to Seek And Destroy again, too long and boring.

I like RTL too even though they cheated to make speedier songs.

Kirk seems nice but he actually sucks at leads. Like Lars, he gave up practicing his instrument. Mantas from Venom evolved and grew, so did Gary from Exodus, but Kirk bought a Crybaby and turned lame after AJFA. Lars is just as plain.

Chuck Biscuits and Dave Lombardo, those were A+ drummers in heavy bands. And like the band or not but Charlie from Anthrax was always really good.

Jimmy DeGrasso and Nick Menza were also really good speedmetal drummers who played with Suicidal Tendencies and Megadeth at their peaks. I think DeGrasso played with both bands. Check out S.T. Live in Madrid 1993 on YouCensor. The band is on fire but singer Mike is out of breath from the first verse onward, it's still really good.

Actually wise for them to not get involved. I like much better their longer, more bizarre posts, than the tired back and forth between cult members and aggrieved former cult members.

LOL, I did hate Nashville but I'll give Altman another chance.  I don't have Short Cuts though.  I was either going to watch MASH or McCabe and Mrs. Miller next.  MASH would probably be a safer choice as I enjoyed the TV show.  Thanks for the recommendation!

The only Altman film I had seen prior to Nashville was Popeye and I saw that one at the movie theater.  It was a very weird experience.

I saw Popeye in the theater too. I remember being bored shitless, anxious, and falling asleep all at the same time.

I was gonna comment on your post in the other thread a few weeks ago but I get caught up in work then become scrambled and forget to post. Then Art died and reading the forum became an actual challenge.

I haven't seen MASH, I could never stand the show, especially that damn theme song. I'm not sure I could do it. I have only seen 3-4 of Altman's movies and they were hit/miss and mostly miss, but I do love Short Cuts it is one of my favorites.

Howdy Dave!  ;D I was pondering whether to watch a horror flick or listen to the show.  Tonight is definitely my cuppa tea though so I'll imagine I'll wait until tomorrow night to watch Chiller Double Thriller.

I know you hated Nashville but if you gave Short Cuts a chance you might be happy.

I have an old windows phone you can have. Donít remember the model but it was one with an integrated hardware keyboard the either swiveled out or slid out if I remember correctly.

I wonder if I would be violating any ITAR export bans or maybe even violating historical artifact preservation statutes.

Do you want me to dig for it and find a model #?

I got a battery replacement about a year ago, i found a whole new phone in box for less than a couple packs of cigs. It was buried in some unit in the middle of some remote industrial park in the ass end of space... one of those places that has a millions kinds of obsolete things that nobody wanted and are still NIB but 5-10 years old. I could replace the phone and go back to android, bit 2-3 hour battery is not funny. Neither is a barbecue in one's pocket.

why have a website if your not going to update it?

#HeatherCoastGuard

Don't even have a website unless it's complete and also contains substance.

No need for under construction notices. If anything, leave a simple cryptic message on the index page while you are pulling the rest of it together. No need to build a mockup for public display, that is a silly thing to do.

OMG, you're the other person still using a windows phone! Egads! Mine simply will not die. I replaced the battery myself, and the mini-usb plug, and now I fear it will live forever! Ok, so emails load slowly, some websites won't load, and many newer apps are not available for windows phone (gee, I wonder why?), but oh well. I did have to get an inexpensive LG android phone just to use an app our big area hospital uses to track patients real-time during surgery and after (awesome), including a very helpful gps/map system for the hospital interior itself (find the cafeteria? Not so easy... app helped!) when my other half had a successful surgery there.

Ok, so the radar works better, email loads like a dream, everything works better, even dropbox works... but I, troglodyte that I am, still haven't switched over. Just deleted hokey ghost radar app on LG phone as I needed more space <g>. Ah well.


I had to get a new battery last summer. I dropped my phone one day and the back popped off, the battery shot out as it usually does when ot hits the floor, and the battery went through the same portal as a Malaysian airliner. Just vanished. So I had to get another windows phone just so I could have the battery. But the new one was locked so I still use my old one which has no corners left, has a broken backplate, and cracked screen shaped like a peace symbol. Its the most abused looking datamining device that I have ever used.

I typically use Opera Mini for Internet. Good data savings and faster loadtimes. Some sites do not work. Some sites with logins won't let me press a login button. Like reverb and kijiji which I use often and are worthless when not logged in. Both sites used to work fine until last summer.

App development stopped before I even owned this POS.
