I heard somewhere in time on my local AM station Saturday night. Didn't even know they were still playing it as I hadn't tuned in for years. I miss Hoagland the most. Listening him dropping a load of horseshit on Art about Martian cities was always my favorite. "Hey art, I have a guy from Ballsack Kentucky that found linear blocks using lasers to penetrate poof dirt and ice on mars." Man I miss this horseshit.

Balsac is in Alberta, Big Bone Lick is what's in Kentucky.....

I use the train a lot. It takes longer but people are generally a lot more pleasant, and there are hardly any dindus at all on the whole trip which is great! Plus guitars don't get abused and you can even carry them on to the cabin even if it's in a hardcase and not a gigbag. On my last train trip I got an Ibanez Xiphos and a JRV Standard on to the cabin at the same time without any problem. They are the most akward guitars to travel with lots of pointy corners to bang. Plus I had a carry on bag thing. LOL. No staff harassed me or gave me a hard time about strapping and shrinking 2 axes like that together and pretending they were a single piece. After I was on I cut the shrink and tucked them both away. Airline bitch would spaz.

I think the best Airline service I have received was with Delta.

The airlines remind me of subway commutes. It's full of arrogant assholes. Staff are assholes. Clients are assholes. These days everyone involved seems is an impatient megalomaniac asshole. It's a miserable way to travel.

All I know is that the train is pleasant. Nobody is ever grumpy. One time there was a grumpy fucker in our cabin on a 3 or 4 day trip across canaduh. I think he was probably detoxing because he had that imma-cunt-and-need-booze-now look on his face the whole time. That Edward Rooney post dog-chew/boarding the school bus kinda look. Other than that I have never experienced too much cuntyholeness while traveling by train, aside from maybe the odd drunken asshole who ends up getting the boot for smoking in between cabins in the crumple zone. Must suck to be kicked off in buttfuck Saskatchewan in the middle of Arctic winter when there is only 1 cross country train passing through every 48 hours. LMAO.

90% of people on planes are narcissists. 92% of people on buses are dindus. 73% of people on coach buses are wiggers and sons/daughters of wiggers, mildly retarded, amish, or dead broke. 99% of people on long distance trains are at piece with the rail.

Public transportation is gonna suck shit no matter how you cut it. I really do like the train though.

Planes Trains and Automobiles, what a great movie...

I never liked Richard Simmons and as it turns out the guy was just a huge dickhead cosplaying as someone who cared about fat people.

I couldn't stand him growing up, but like C-3PO he grew on me over the decades. I do prefer C-3PO to Richard though, mostly because C-3PO was never fat, plus he had an off-switch.

This could also be a publicity stunt, since nobody watches talkshows or infomercials anymore, it could be his way of seeing how many people still care about him. I literally don't know what he has ever done aside from 1980s talk show appearances and 1990s infomercials.

I would have thought that he died years ago if I didn't read a couple of years back that he was living life outside of the public eye. No clue where I read that, but more than likely some corporate celebrity headline farm like when I used to use Hotmail and log out of inbox then be hurled into an index of celebrity headlines and worthless MSN lifestyle horseshit.

If I didn't use corporate websites I wouldn't even know who in the fuck most of these god damn goofballz are or what they are up to on a daily basis. I prefer not to know anything about famous/popular narcissists.

The TMZ, the spyGoogle, and the escapism superhero culture industry have taken the civilization hostage. Stay asleep.

Just to be clear though it's NOT a reinvention. These are hardcore fans who work in Hollywood. They've made it their mission to complete the other 2 years of the Enterprises' 5 year journey (they were cancelled after 3). The episodes are free and really nail the spirit and content of the original. I'm down with them completing their mission.  ;)

I have only seen the Lolani episode, but plan to check out some more episodes soon. I thought it was well done for being confined within production perimeters which they had to work. I thought they did a great job with the bridge props and sounds. To me it doesn't even feel like they are milking the nostalgia, and it doesn't come across as a tribute either. It's like an actual piece of work.

Star Trek Continues is more interesting to me than any recent/current official $tar Trek production.

That's what I meant. I don't think you can still buy them new. However, even used they're still going for over a hundred. When I see them starting to sell for half of that with a bunch of games is when I'll get one. My main reason for wanting it is just the extra stick.

I didn't relize they stopped Vita. That is pathetic. LOL. Are you sure they aren't still selling the Slim one? I only just found out a few months ago that there even was a lighter one. I might start accumulating games soon and worry about getting a unit later. I often see Vita games for what seem to be affordable prices. I know there are about a half dozen games I would be interested in, mostly game series that I have previously followed. Not sure what is beyond that. And I don't have any idea how open the Vita is. It never interested me to even go poke around online and see what people have done to their Vitas. With PSP the homebrew market was vast and there was excitement for it. With Vita it was like a funeral from day one. I don't doubt it is probably nice, but there wasn't the same appreciation like people had with PSP, DS, or 3DS.

This is definitely true since I did it by accident the first time through.  But then a FAQ I happened upon cautioned against it since you'd miss that cool boss battle with Endie.  So I went back to an earlier save point and let him live, so I could kick his ass later.

Haha that's great.  I so want to play that game again.  You're right about the easter eggs and such.  There's something about getting all the different kinds of snakes I think, and also collecting those little figurines hidden about.  Damn I've had two PS2's and each time I think I'm done and sell it, I end up wishing I had it back.

The Keroten frogs... There was one I could never hit during the Motorcycle chase sequence. I think there are 3 or more to shoot in that whole segment where EVA is driving the bike while Snake is in the sidecar, and one was always an extremely hard shot which I never could do. I can't remember if I got the one after THE FURY battle somewhere before you climb the ladder. Even with the GA-KO camo, I could never see where the stupid frog was. I used C4, grenades, RPG, anything.. could not ever find it. Refused to do FAQ. I played the game through about 8 times on the original release, then another 12 or so in the Subsistence double disc version but never did get all of the frogs, always came up 2 short, and always the same two. In Sons of Liberty I had the same problem with collecting dogtags. In the rerelease deluxe Substance version of SOL I didn't even bother to collect dogtags. By the time MGS3 came out I never played MGS2 again because I was so occupied with Snake Eater until the last days that I had a PS2. I would like to play both again, it's been a long time. 

Did you ever get the Tshuniko or whatever the damn thing was called? You trap it in the area where you battle THE FEAR and then keep it until the end of the game, then you get a reward for the next play through...

They should have made a stealth game spinoff focused on THE BOSS or PARA-MEDIC.

Played the hd remaster of Snake Eater, and it's pretty excellent. Managed to get most of the outfits too.

Black facepaint... I forget what it did. But I think I used Spirit Camo in order to get Raikov and stash him into the locker. I think brown facepaint increased oxygen level for underwater swimming... or was that green... I can't remember. I do know that the zombie paint was my favorite.

Volgin and Raikov were gay lovers. If you watch the bonus vids on the PS2's MGS3 Subsistance disc, there are a lot of funny videos with gags and inside jokes. Did they put the Secret Theater mode into the HD collection? In one video, Raiden (from MGS2) time travels into scenes from Snake Eater and creates time paradoxes. At one point Colonel Volgin thinks he is Raikov (because his face is identical) and attempts to rape him.

And not meaning to be cruel in showing you this, but Konami is not focusing on proper games anymore. Just pachinko machines:

I just viewed this but am not sure exactly what I just watched. Is this promo for the JP version of HD Snake Eater? And what are Pachinko machines? Are they networked arcade cabinets like the ones they still do in Japan? The superimposed transparency resembles multiplayer cabinet or something.

I think Konami are going to crash the ship into the mountain. I suspect they already have. And Hideo Kojima left Konami a year or 2 ago. I think MGS is finished. The reviews for the last 2 "MGS" games were poor. The hack n slash with Raiden and the other recent not-Solid spinoff are such a niche offshoot that I don't know if they are even candidates.

I haven't followed much the past 5 or so years but it looks like the entire series has been beaten into the ground and the Konami/Kojima split is the cherry topping. Fans seem to be very displeased with MGS5, and MGS4 had already alienated people. I didn't play Guns of the Patriots but it's hard to ignore the negative feedback that game had. MGSforums was loaded with user criticism for many years and still is, and it's been going on a full 10 years since MGS4/PS3 and people are still bitter about that. It's like it was the turning point where a great thing started to go downhill. I don't know though, I haven't kept up with the series in a long time and haven't played any of the above, but people are not enthusiastic about any of the above MGS related games.

I couldn't finish Portable Ops because my attention span couldn't do it. But I played the MPO+ online mode and ranked very high and got a million headshots and earned a rank that only a hacker would have. I enjoyed MPO+ online, but the original core MPO and it's online mode sucked shit compared to the enhanced MPO+ suppliment. As a campaign, I was bored shitless through and through. It pains me to say that.

With Peace Walker, my PSP died early into the game and I aborted it with intention on restarting from scratch at some point at a later date, but that was 2 years ago now and still have yet to give it a proper playthrough. In general I had a hard time following that game too... Just way too much reading involved, and I am not a fan of that sketchy style of artwork. The crosshairs on the screen was the silliest fucking thing I had ever seen in a MGS game up until that point. I am almost scared to play any other MGS games at this point. I suspect MGS went the same direction as Star Wars, Terminator, or any series that used to have integrity but turned into silly franchised nonsense with a team of underachieving megalomaniac writers.

MGS3 was Snake Eater right?  Loved that game too.  The boss battle where you have to sneak up on that old sniper dude was one of my fave moments in any game, such a suspenseful challenge - and then I stole his bitchin rifle too lol!  The backstory was so cool even if I didn't understand all of it, not uncommon for Metal Gear games though.  MGS2 also had some very neat elements, but like others I was like "Where'd Snake go, and who's this blonde guy I'm supposed to be playing?"  Great stealth gameplay though, and graphics for the time.

THE END.. And his parrot... In an earlier scene in the game, you have the opportunity to blow his head off while he is in his wheelchair. I think he requires 2 headshots and if you miss one he gets cropped out and escapes quickly and the door closes behind him. If you do this I believe that his boss battle is replaced with the Ocelot unit in that one part of the jungle later on. I could be wrong but do know that I have killed him on the dock down by the river. It's possible that you don't get his weapon though. It's like the fake death pill in the prison cell. You aren't supposed to use that pill to lure Johnny into the cell, but haven't figured out how to escape the cell any other way. Back to the END, the battle with him was fun. That poisonous bolt that he would shoot, then you'd have to dig it out with a fork or whatever, otherwise you loose consciousness. Of all of the battles in that game, this might be the truest in terms of the stealth concept as well as utilizing the camo index. Later on during THE SORROW, you can see a ghost of him with his parrot saying "grandpa! grandpa!"

Also if you pause the game mid battle, or maybe save the game mid-battle then turn off console for X amount of clock/calendar time, The End dies of old age. It's possible you will not get the Mosin Nagant if you do this. I forget how to accomplish that, but Snake Eater has a ton of easter eggs like that. Even repeatedly calling people changes dialog.

With MGS2, The Raiden thing grew on me as I played through the first time. But it's almost like that character was designed to be hated, as if Raiden was the New Coke of MGS. I thought the game was so well done, that I looked past all of that. The first time I played it I was wondering when Snake would be back. I enjoyed exploring Big Shell though, and the boss battles were fun, although I don't know if I liked the villains in Sons of Liberty as much as I did the ones from MGS3. The original ending to MGS2 was to include the destruction of WTC and the game had to be tweaked at the last minute, as the story takes place later in the 2000s. I am not sure if the Solidus battle on the roof of Federal Hall was originally planned or this was part of the redo. I thought it was extremely weird to end the game in Manhattan like that, but then again that's where the story began -- With a false flag terrorism event. Tell me Hideo isn't an insider like Lucas and Speilberg and all these privvy people.

The game had shattering glass, shootable TVs, cold/flu... etc... different boxes with different purposes... Even shooting the birds was fun, call Rose after shooting seagulls and see what happens. Or call her while standing at a urinal. The easter eggs were all over the place. Playability in the game was much improved from the first MGS. I never did collect all of the dog tags though,  there were always 2 or 3 that I could not get for some reason.

Scissors 61.

I hear it's good if a bit strange. I'd love for a proper GTA game to be set somewhere outside America for once, and I think a Japanese setting would be perfect for it.

Started Sleeping Dogs a few weeks ago, but I don't really know if I'll return to it. It's an open world game where you play as an undercover cop in the Hong Kong triads, with an emphasis on kungfu style melee combat and combos.

They had London 1969 for PS1. It was just an add-on/mod, but it was an official product by Rockstar.

I still have never ventured into PS2 or 3 yet. One day there'll be an offer I can't refuse, I'm sure. I'm still lusting after getting a Vita when they drop in price a little more. I'm hoping the emu scene is as wide open for that as it is for the PSP.

I'm eyeballing Vita as well but will probably just buy a used one when the time comes. Plus there are multiple versions and I don't know what one is preferred and for what reasons. I think the original non-slim one was LED screen and the others were not(?) I am very confused. Anyways, I would like to play any Hot Shots Golf games that were available for it, as well as Metal Gear Solid 3 HD remaster thing which looked absolutely awful for 3DS.

I think Metal Gear Solid 3 (PS2) is my favorite game of all time. I owned 3 different versions of the PS2 one. I also like the 2nd one a lot for PS2, which was the reason I got a PS2 to begin with. I played the original one for PS1 by accident when my sister in law loaned it to me. I was like 'uhhh.. no i dont think this kind of game is for me.." She was a little pushy but I reluctantly played it. It blew me the fuck away how great it was and how character development as well as a story like that could be told though a game. Previous to that I had only played Resident Evil (PS1) but the voice acting was hideous in those. MGS had actual life. Bad voice acting aside, those Resident Evil games were really great until they turned into shooters. I have only played the original trilogy for PS1, as well as Code Veronica for PS2 (which I never finished).

I have never really seen or played a PS3 or PS4. I would own one for the sake of continuing with anything related to Hot Shots Golf or Ace Combat games though. I love both of those series.

PS2 was my fave console of all time.  Some great games on that one.  And it played PS1 games too with the right memory card.   

PS2 was excellent, and is also my favorite console of all time. The catalog was amazing, there were so many awesome games. I originally had a FAT one and then it died or had disk read error and so I got a PS2 Slim. I liked how you could play PS1 games on it, but you did need to have a PS1 memory card to save any PS1 game progress.

The only things that I did not like about the PS2 were the fact that you could not easily copy data from memory card unless it was internally on the unit itself, between 2 memory cards. To copy savedata and upload it to a PC or file host takes serious skill to accomplish, even in 2017. The PSP easily plugged it into a computer's USB port and then acted as a portable harddrive, making gamesave data easy to backup, copy, transfer, share, etc. Doing this on a PS2 was not happening without some serious effort. Anyways, that was my only gripe about the PS2 and overall it was a great system and I wore my Slim out while I lived in the middle of the cold arctic Rockies in the mid 2000s bored out of my fucking skull.

I accumulated about 40-50 or so games, which I still have. Most of my dedicated playtime was dedicated to just a shortlist. I probably spent the most hours with Ace Combat 5, GTA San Andreas, Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 as well as the enhanced re-releases of both of those. The 2nd 2 disc version of MGS3 had an online mode, although it only lasted about 12 months. I also played Hot Shots Fore! a lot and it's online mode lasted about 5 years. SSX3 was another that I spent a ton of hours playing, it was an amazing snowboarding game and my personal favorite of the series, plus it had an online mode as well that was in service for about 2 years. I played MVP 2004 (MLB) a lot. I was a couple of seasons into my franchise mode. I was using the Chicago Cubs.

I haven't seen or touched a PS2 in about 9-10 years. I had to abandon mine in 2007 or 2008. I still have my 8 gig memory card though, and one day will continue where I left off. I owned/still own a handful of games that were totally unplayed. I never had time to play some of them and before I knew it I had no available PS2 console. It's literally been a decade already.

Crap, I think my original PSP has sat idle for years now. Have been meaning recently to get a new external hdd and to try backing up my games electronically and to give emulation a whirl, which I assume needs a running console at least for the ripping.

Do you mean ripping UMDs and then turning them into ISO or signed EBOOT?

Also, anybody know of a good way to emulate PS1 on a PSP? I think my most compatible PSP has 6.60 PRO-B or C. I have another one that came with M33 but I don't know if that is still useful in 2017. I am not too fluent with PSP hax culture as I have typically used official firmware on straight out of the box PSP slims, but signed eboots play fine on any unhacked PSP as long as it's got official 6.39 or lower. Most homebrew and emulators will also play without any problems, and this is why I have not previously explored CFW. I have a red God of War PSP that has 6.60 PRO but haven't taken advantage of the possibilities yet. I would like to play the original Resident Evil Trilogy and first Metal Gear Solid game on the PSP. I may just purchase them from PSN and download them on PC then transfer to PSP. PSP doesn't even connect to the Sony store anymore you need a PS4 or computer. What a pain in the cunt.

Great series! Did it endure beyond the PS1?

I'm always down with more flight combat games.  :)

Ace Combat had atleast 3 titles for PS2;

Ace Combat 4, Shattered Skies
Ace Combat 5, The Unsung War
Ace Combat 0, The Belkan War

They were released in that order. I didn't play The Belkan War, I bet it was awesome though because Ace Combat 4 was very fun and was A+. Up a notch from PS1. Ace Combat 5 was even better than 4. and there was a flightstick built for that one that connected to PS2 via USB. I regretted not getting the flightstick package because that game in particular ended up being my favorite Ace Combat of the ones that I have played. It was more integrated than previous games and I think had even more licensed aircraft than ever before. I played a demo of another Ace Combat game on somebody's 360 about 10 years ago and it was amazing even if it was just a demo.

There were also the 2 games for PSP;

Ace Combat X
Ace Combat | Joint Assault

Both of these games are great, and I would assume any serious criticism of them would be towards control schemes. Both were excellent games, but maintaining control was extremely difficult. High stress. With the limited and asymmetrical set of controls of the PSP, default game controls are kind of redundant / destined for failure. So in both games the controls were 100% customizable, as if you were calibrating a controller for an emulator. I think I remapped every single button in both games too. I haven't played either in a while, but in order to have L1 and R1 be YAW left and right, I had to completely shakeup the entire control scheme and I think I had to completely dispose of the most superficial command, which was possibly the camera toggle. It's very political and stressful. But once you get past that, these 2 games are very impressive on a small screen.

I just picked up a used PSPGo not too long ago. I am really liking it and am using it as my go-to PSP. There is no UMD drive so I just use it to play eboots of just my top favs. I think I am up to 12 or 13 PSPs now but I still can't find an acceptable metallic green Metal Gear one or an affordable lilac purple Hannah Montana one. There was also a bronze one that is near impossible to locate. I have some strange colored ones that were from the Japan market but the bronze one is extremely evasive.

I think I have accumulated about 5 pounds of expired PSP batteries since 2007. That is from them sitting too long. I even had 4 official Sony XLs that I paid retail costs for each one and they all swelled from sitting too long. I try and keep them all in rotation now and don't let them sit too long without a charge but it gets confusing. Plus the 1000 and 2000/3000 batteries are rated different from one another, and sometimes I'm using a beater that doesn't take a particular battery. The great responsibility of PSP battery management. I wonder if Sony still sell the refurbished XL batteries. Mine lasted about 8-12 consecutive hours with UMD running and casual internetting going, which is a little more than twice a long as the standard battery that came with the units would last. These were almost twice as thick and required a supplied oversized replacement battery cover that could accommodate the size.

I used to rest assured knowing that if the power went out again, I would be good for about 3 consecutive days of pure blackout. Plus I do like taking long train trips and although they have AC outlets on board I like to live the PSP life as a sovereign.

I don't trust third party batteries. I used a fake battery once and that PSP ended up in my dead pile. It was pristine shape with almost no usage, and was my only black 3000, I blame shitty fake Chinese battery. ; D

The stress of battery expiration. You must not neglect the 3.6v 1200mAh. Nothing more annoying than having to play a PSP while it is wired to a wall outlet. LOL. A couple of my PSPs don't even have batteries anymore because they sat too long and ballooned like crazy.

He is not missing, he is retired. The shows that he frequently appeared on are long gone. Letterman for example. It's a new era and these people are pensioners.

He stated years ago that he was retired. He doesn't want publicity.

Maybe he is on crack. Or maybe has the aidz. Maybe he is fat again like he was in the early 70s.

It could be all or none of the above.

Maybe he just doesn't want to be reached..... like Rick Moranis, Gene Hackman, Joe Pesci, Sean Connery, and Professor Falken.

I've hated that company since the 90s. They ate up a ton of worthy websites and services and dissolved or mutated/merged them into some mediocre and redundant piece of shit thing that was relaunched with their own branding. Popularity declined immediately and user dissatisfaction was well documented at the time.

Yahoo! were one of the first powerful conglomerates to completely fuck up and ruin the internet. Google took notes and perfected this 8-10 years later and actually did the same thing ten fold. Google went from a nobody, to leasing satellites, to launching their very own satellites in less than a decade. Even worse is how Google is used as a conditioning tool to shape one's opinion, it's a herd-culling service. It's the most evil of tools imaginable. It is not an open world when using that company's spy engine. It is a very shuttered world and it is very biased and infectious, as hipsters and trendies and generally stupid idiots love the shit out of it. It's the cattlecar of the internet. It's that ugly fuck in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang who hates kids. It's the serial killer of the human mind, the enemy of the independent, and the proliferator of idiotism. The thing isn't even meta based, it's thug based... You pay and you get top listing. Publish something unpopular enough and these sons of whores will totally delist you from their results permanently. It's more than a search engine too, it's become the backbone of the internet and that is fucking scary. It has also become judge, jury and executioner. It's become it's own being. People worship this company like a God.

Anyways, the whole lot of them are total bastards. Filthy fucking digital bastard animals.

I hate Yahoo!, originally because they once took a server away from me with very little warning time after they bought another company's product that I used. Later on I just hated them because they were hateable. Plus they were obsolete from day one but that is just my personal opinion. It was the last search engine I would have used in the mid 90s, especially when back then dial-up service was billed per hourly usage. I never had the time for their friendly family funtime exploration bullshit.

Go Network (ABC-Disney) was another (late 1990s) conglomerate that gobbled up tons of websites and services and then immediately shut them all down to funnel the traffic into their own moldy vaginal servers. In what seemed to be 2 or 3 years (if even that much) after startup, losses were extreme and the entire Go Network was dismantled. These bags of shit with Mouse Ears took Hotbot, Lycos/Infoseek as well as other pioneering search engines and flushed them down the fucking toilet almost immediately after acquisition. They also disolved WBS (established in 1994 or 1995), which was a massive interactive/chat community with very high usership for it's time and nothing came close to it in terms of traffic or real-time event hosting.

Fuck Yahoo and the whores they rode in on...
Fuck Social Retardation Networking
Fuck Apple and iSpytunes
Fuck Trendy Bullshit
Fuck Hashtags
Fuck Google
Fuck Jesus
Fuck Hitler
Fuck MSN
Fuck Me
Fuck U

Thank you.  I thought I was alone.  :(

You are not alone brother, and in unison we shall hate Bruce Springsteen. That said, I have a Frankie Goes To Hollywood greatest hits and they do Born To Run and it's actually pretty good.

And I fucking hate Bruce Springsteen.  The ''Boss'.  Boss of what?

The Boss of Boring. </FLUSH>

also..Bon Jovi

No shit, they are literally the kings of cocksuck. I know many people love them all these decades but I always wished they would go away, which they never did. They are corny as it gets and they are gross as fuck. The Cult could totally blow those ugly fucksticks away with just a walmart hoodie and only half a tambourine.

I think the demise of pop music can be traced to Aerosmith doing that cross-over rap song.

As much as I hate Aerosmith and think they are corny as fuck (as well as being in desperate need of facial transplants), I did like that Run DMC album a lot in 1986 and it was a gateway for me in terms of finding new music on my own. I would not have spent the past 30 years listening to and collecting and following and playing what I do now if I didn't buy that Raising Hell cassette when I did in 1986. Within a year I discovered Public Enemy and within 2 years was into hardcore punk music and American thrash metal and was consuming it like crazy by 1988. From that point I got into bands like Danzig who was only just starting up with the blues metal thing after a decade of more campy type stuff, but that band alone immediately took me backwards to Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf and people like that, plus Orbison and Cash who at this time were becoming relevant again, possibly more so than when they were in their prime.

How about all the shoe-gazing mope-rock bands of the early/mid-90's.  I honestly can't remember any of their names, just their blurry slo-mo videos and overwrought lyrics.

Yes, fuck them all. And their flipside counterparts, uppity ska revival bands. </FLUSH x2>

U2 is shit

Indeed. And phony as fuck with their amnesty/we give a shit bullshit. </FLUSH>

PS: what was with that Lemon thing?

I still like Jesus and Mary Chain

I like the stuff they did with the girl from Mazzy Star.

any boy band ever artificially manufactured.

I agree. But do the Sex Pistols count? And what about The Monkees?

I usually avoid personal comments here but you seem like a very unhappy man.

Whether or not I am miserable doesn't have much to do with the topic or my post. This isn't psychology class or depression diagnostics is it? If I was miserable, would it really matter? This is a lite thread with tongue-in-cheek comments about the bands we hate. It's the Deathrace2000 of threads. I was not being nasty, just direct. There is no reason to sugar coat anything, people dislike certain bands and that is fun and normal. That said, I am indeed miserable. But to me this thread is an escape from the reality of my misery and does not actually represent my miserableness as it is mostly just for fun. I am being honest and truly do not like any of the bands that I have cited.

I don't actually wish any misery or depression on any of those bands, I just hate them and pretend that they don't exist. I hate Stone Temple Toilets, but I would actually have preferred to have seen the singer survive the battle with himself. He was one unhappy camper. If I were as unhappy as him I would have beat him to the funeral home and done a better job of doing it, I would have made a fucking mess and had somebody else clean it up. Now that is misery. Atleast he didn't have somebody scrape his skull off the ceiling, so he is somewhat considerate in that aspect, and I am not sure if I am as courteous. I am unhappy and am very busy in life, therefore have no time for shitty music polluting my ears. Shitty music makes me violent and even more unhappy than my natural state of unhappiness and general dissatisfaction.

The diverse range of bands that I do like greatly outnumber the ones that I dislike. Plus I could write for days about each band that I do like while trying to lay out all of the infinite reasons as to why I think they are great. But it's not that kind of thread -- It's a hater thread!

I hate the bands I listed. I don't like the music and I can't stand the people in the bands. Many will disagree and that is life.

I am very opinionated about music. Some of my favorite popular bands are Black Sabbath, ABBA, Queen, X, Loretta Lynn, Kate Bush, Phil Collins, Judas Priest, Bad Brains, and Public Enemy. I think The Smiths are great and I wish I could write songs like that, but I can't. I can accept if people don't like them. It doesn't mean I cannot like the people that dislike the Smiths, it just means that they hate the Smiths.

Many hate ABBA but I think they are absolutely genius. Maybe the best pop band ever IMO. I am not going to be offended if somebody wishes they were dead. That just means at one point or another they had them shoved down their throat, probably when the same 14 songs were on loop for an 8 hour shift at a job and Dancing Queen was hurled at them 3-4 times a night against their will. That song totally misrepresents the band anyways. But all that said, Play Jimi Hendrix or Lenerd Skynarard around me and I might kick your balls in. I used to hate Judas Priest until I was in my late 20s or mid 30s, but now I love JP although they do have some shitty stuff in their back catalog which I think is disgusting and gross, but when they are good it totally outshines their shitty shit. The guitar work is phenomenal especially on the Painkiller and SFV albums. I grew up with Love Bites on the TV and whenever I saw it I would be like these guys fucking suuuuuuuuck. Today I blame media and not the band, as I was deceived all those years and exposed to only JP's shittiest shitty songs and videos. I have since watched their sets at US Festival 1983, Live Aid in 1985, and Irvine Meadows in 1991 and regret my previous opinion about them being corny and lame.

I have quit 2 jobs over the insane music repeatedly jammed down my fucking throat all god damn day long so I can relate to certain forms of hatred. CCR are still banned from my god damn ears. The Eagles just entered probation after a 22 year ban from my fucking ears. Previous job caused all this in the first place.

There is somebody I know who cannot stand The Tide Is High remake by Blondie. I love it as well as all of the original albums by Blondie until they broke up, but this person gets violent and clockwork orange if that song comes on, and they hate all Blondie songs no matter what because of it. They worked at a bank in the 80s and the song was played all the time, several times a day... Janet Reno pulled this shit at Waco... MK Ultra is easier done than explained.

Plus, he's one of the only cool Canadians on here.  ;) 8)

There are no cool Canadians except for HOG.

He's a shoe-in for OSOM Thread Hall-of-Fame, Canadian Division, for several classic rants there.

19.5 can sometimes bring out the best in us. That thread had (and continues to have) more substance month after month than the actual show material did.

Still advertising the show and taking subscriptions, yet almost no communication to subscribers or his listening audience for almost 6 months? Nothing of substance just hashtags. What a weirdo. Is his website still functioning?

KIYQ still have him listed as relevant live talk show. I take it they are playing shows from Keith and Fred's network. I can't imagine subscribing only to find out that all of the shows are atleast 5 months old. What is this goof thinking. He never even gave any true status updates since his abrupt stoppage.

RCH is unprofessional, unreliable, and full of bullshit on and off air.

Not one sincere status update the entire time. Just the ain't seen nuthin' yet! shit. The behavior is bizarre and weird. Is he a junkie? A chronic history of being a no show for work 2-3 times a week, and the goofball works out of his house. 

He has no common courtesy to notify or explain his bullshit excuse. The guy had more vacation days than O-Hole. He is an irresponsible abandoner of obligations. When you build some network or following, it is your duty to fulfill the role as well as provide an explanation as to why the show is no longer produced, especially when it happens abruptly. It's just courtesy or respectful. If needed, make up some total bullshit, but don't just silently sneak out the back door and go quiet for 6 months then start twittering and appearing on other radio shows and twittering more and more and again and again and more. This is totally insane and functioning people do not do this kind of thing unless they are mental.

Did his fake ebook ever get released? The only real status update was the Christmas ebook that was going to be a bonus for subscribers. It was probably the ain't seen nuthin yet thing typed up by Robin the milf and cosplay nurse who gave him the boot and waived her season's pass at the Apollo 19 Moon Mission Mini Golf Adventure Course in exchange for freeing up the spare room so she could rent it out to the pool boy to make a lil extra coin to fund a solo trip to a conference in Fiji where nobody is grumpy and dildos are not needed.

Hope you're all good, the best thing about RCH and his OSOM fake radio one man discussion show was chatting in here. You people are real, Richard is not. There is nothing worse than insincerity.

I have been really busy with work this winter but still like to chat on here.

Glad you mentioned Fiona A. in a positive light.  What a great talent - I got to see her at a small venue sometime in the late 90's and was amazed.  Wish I'd seen PJH sometime, from what I've caught of her on the youtubes.

I saw Fiona at The Orpheum in Memphis around the same time, I still have my ticket. It was a tour supporting the 2nd album, not Tidal. I don't think I have even heard anything outside of those 2 albums, aside from the John Lennon song she did for that movie soundtrack, which was a really good cover.

Never did see PJ, but wish I did back when she was still in her heyday. I kind of like the Stories... album best, although it might be overproduced compared to Dry or Rid of Me. The 4 Track Demos CD was also really good supplemental material if you like the Dry or Rid of Me. Her songwriting is A+.

I think she has since had a couple of kids, but I bet she can still wail and play guitar like she was 22. So many good songs/albums and collabs. I think Nick Cave used to plow her, and they also worked together a few times.

Johnette Napolitano from Concrete Blonde is also a great female songwriter who could bellow out some haunting shit song after song after song with very little filler tracks on the albums. Very little production and almost zero bling, yet amazing and powerful.

Rid of Me (Live 2001) it looks like LEGO but I don't think there is another one.

i know people like who they like, and i never judge, but i never could stand the following assholes:

pearl jam
stone temple pilots
those particular greasy, generic and constipated ugly and pure talentess faggots from canada who simply will not go away
the black eyed peas (thank god they finally went away)
barenaked ladies (suck total shit, and will not go away no matter what)
alantis morrison (the worst)
red hot chilli peppers (die.)
this deadmau5/skrillex horseshit (jesus christ, something in the water.)
kansas/boston/journey/doobie bros/foreigner/REO faggotwagon
korn (skitzo+constipation+teenage angst+7 string guitars = TOTAL SHIT from day one)
limp bizkit (see above entry)
any nu metal
U2 (insincere assholes, fuck you boner you phony!)
kiss (the worst band in the history of rock music.)

i left out a ton of 90s bands, and i wish the entire current breed of pop stars would all go to the bottom of the ocean ASAP, start with pink and she can take the rest with her.

also, that overproduced fat bitch with the cock in her mouth needs to go die immediately too.

i miss fiona apple and amy winehouse, they were great. pj harvey, now that is a woman and a talent.

adele is merely a pig.

no offense if anyone likes that bitch or any of the shitty rock bands above.

Blabbermouth did this about 4-5 years ago, and a F ceb ok login replaced their old forum database. I only ever go to Blabbermouth for the comments. The platform migration had zero effect on what was still being posted, but the old database and history was eventually wiped out.

You will probably still be able to have a discussion about pages at IMDB but will be threaded in the white and blue dropdown format, and the user will need to be logged in via Big Brotherberg.msn, which has become the industry standard... probably to hold people accountable for what they type online.

"This is what you want..... This is what you get....."

The people wanted this kind of internet. The average person is a piece of shit narcissist scumbag. It's pretty fitting.

At any rate. I hate Big Brother, social networking, idiots, monkeys, sheep, jerkoffs, trendies, phone addicts, tablets, and piece-of-shit ghouls like the one in my avatar who I see all day long all week/month/year. All the above make me sick. This makes me an intellectual monster.

Soon you will have to login to that god damn site to take a piss.

I can't get that fucking logo off my phone.

It sure did ruin the internet.

And real life too.

I'm done for the night.  I was really hoping for an expert in Canadian ghost stories- from coast to coast... A treasure trove of creepy stories from old hotels and haunted highways from the 1900's to modern days.  Certainly in a country as vast as ours there are stories to make you pause and your hair stand on end.  Instead I get to hear about her son, her house, her growing up and her being called by her friends to look into their strange events.  I love Knapp, but my time would be better sleeping... Night all.

Remember the movie The Gate? Canadian movie filmed in King City. It's not really about ghosts, but a portal opens up in the backyard. It was fun.

Procol Harum lead guitarist and then left for a solo career around 1970.

I literally cannot place him or his band, and scanning his wiki page didn't help me much either...

Yeesss. And he played my favorite Gordon Lightfoot song too

Oh. You mean the photo? My protege, MiniLily

Robin Trower? Is he a UK blues guy? That's all I got out of wiki, I was totally unfamiliar with his musical lineage.

The pic is authentic NanoLily?
