  1. I played guitar since I was 12. Admittedly I practically never practice my scales or anything like that so I was never a shredder solo kind of guy. I like using a lot of open tunings and getting the sound like there are more than one guitar playing, or otherwise making a nice full sound. I really want to get a 12 string acoustic cause my dad always had one and I loved the sound. 

    I haven't picked up the guitar for a while now, but it would only take a month or so of playing it to refamiliarise myself with it and get back to a fairly high level of competencey. I've been playing my son's ukelele a fair bit cause it's such a throwaway instrument you can just pick it up and bash out something fun while supervising the little guy, walking from room to room. My wife is starting to get annoyed by the uke though so not sure how long it'll last. Should probably seriously look at getting the 12 string.

    So you pull the blue master lever every 4 years? How about utilizing some critical thinking rather then conforming to blind party devotion? How about evaluating the issues one by one rather then blindly succumbing to your political gods? I equally hate both parties while I hold my nose and cast my vote for the lesser of two evils. Sadly this country is still enthralled by the political duopoly, but your mindless voting doesn't help the situation. How is it Europe has managed to have multiple parties represented in their deliberative halls and we are still stuck in this two party nonsense? Entertain the thought of voting third party...whether it's Green, Moderate, Libertarian... stop conforming to the same old same old. You ARE the problem...

    You're going to take someone's entire political leaning and question their critical thinking based off of one off hand post? You're spoiling for a fight, innit. 

    If you'd been around for longer than a few days to actually engage with people, Zathras in this case, you might find that their political stance is not the same today as it was in days gone by and that they may in fact hold all of the political nuance and thought of... I don't know... a fucking person who's lived a life?  And not a one dimensional character for your condesention.

    Keep on edging there Mr Lord.

    Who the fuck is disputing this? Why did you feel the need to post this? I have not once defended him. He's a total piece of shit. And I feel embarrassed that I once revered him and his music. 

    You're a pube's width away from absolute victim blaming. That's why I felt the need to post that. 

    What did they expect? Probably a relationship based on whatever niceties he professed to said women when he met them, and being that Manson is a performative art character and Brian Warner is the person, perhaps he led them to believe he was not an abusive rapist? 

  4. Sounds pretty normal I think.

    Don't know how relevant it is, but at the start of the pandemic the people I work with had to change business model from bakery into  bakery/farm shop/cafe/grocery/alcohol store to be able to legally stay open. It was a highly stressful and dynamic time where we all had to think on our toes and graft really hard to change things around and stay open and help people get their food and such and make a living at the same time. With PPE and social distancing and all that stuff to regulate as well. It was very stressful, but kind of fun. Now though, people are used to the world and it's pretty much gone back to normal and it's boring as hell again.

    I think being in a stressful environment or situation forces you to think on your toes and be in the moment in ways times of relative calm and stability don't.  

    So don't feel bad you're bored.

    Also yeah, if you're just tired give yourself some rest. You seem to have a very busy life you deserve some chill time to be bored and nap

  5. It's shocking when you have the realisation that people may not be the people you believed them to be all along. I'm glad you have made repairs to your relationship with your father, but sorry you are going through this loss with your mother. It's shit, no two ways about it. But you've made the right call. Your family is your wife and kids and from what you have said here you have done right by them. Stay strong man, but talk whenever you need.

  6. Thing is though, he's not a monster. He's just a man. There are no such thing as monsters, just people and their shitty behaviour. 

    Half the shit you listed, Shockey, was just performance art. And yeah you can argue how much of his true self is tied up in his persona but at the end of the day, if you're getting kinky with your partner and they want out or to stop, you do what they say. Being an edge lord goth "monster" doesn't justify or excuse rape.

    It doesn't matter about expectations, or whether or not you think these women were stupid for dating Manson, you just don't rape people. Period. Pretty simple boundary to understand. 

  7. I feel like politicians everywhere are super centrist. Like our left and right are still super middle of the road. Anything that begins to stray outside of the accepted boundaries of contemporary political discourse gets branded either communist or fascist and therefore immediately shut down and the status quo resumes. Or if someone tries to communicate an idea of governance that doesn't utilise the current systems or tries to dismantle/circumvent/change the way we do things they're branded a nut job or something.

    Sorry just rambling thoughts but had no idea where to put them.

  8. I saw Manson in the Mechanical Animals tour. Preeetty siiick show I must say. Think it was 99..maybe? Blew my 15 year old mind. Rammstein and Hole played the same festival. Think it went Hole, Rammstein, then Manson. Back to back 90s alt rock carnage. 

  9. Totally. Manson is a coke n booze bloated sack of meat now, much like Johnny Depp. They've both attained that level of fame and drug addiction that has made them buy into their personas completely, that completely bat-shit level of disconnection from reality. Life imitating art imitating life and art n shit. It's kind of sad if they didn't make themselves so unlikable in the process.

    I regret never having played KOTOR. I've tried, but it's just too dated for me to get into. hopefully the rumored remaster happens soon.

    Man I hope so too.

    KOTOR and KOTOR2 with restored content are legitimately two of my favourite games of all time. Probably right up there with Fallout 2 and Skyrim.

    I was never offended!

    Blue didn’t come my way via a dating app. We met via a mutual friend years back and just started hanging out in person last year after she moved to LA. She’s in her mid 30s, so she’s not YOUNG per se, just younger than me.

    Yeah for some reason when you said she was younger than you I was picturing someone in their early/mid 20s. 

    Just my dirtbag imagination I guess.

  12. I'm looking forward to playing through this again. I never played with the same character/save the whole way through which I would definitely do this time round. 

    I'm sure the remaster will not satisfy everyone but thats impossible these days. Was hoping to get a new GFX card before playing any next gen (current gen really I guess) games but with the stock shortages I have no idea when I'll be able to upgrade. 

    So I'll probably get this before too long and spend my evenings in 1440p space opera time.
