Thunder, thunder, thundercats, HOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Went out on Friday night for a friends birthday. We were round at his place first watching a film before we headed out. The film in question was....Lilo & Stitch!!!!1!  Seriously the best film ever, and all in attendance agreed. Nothing a room full of Rivetheads likes more than a good Disney film....haha

After the film we were just dossing around waiting for people to get ready and the subject of 80's cartoons came up. So we headed to youtube and reminisced before heading out to PARTY HARD! \m/

Head past the jump and prepare to reminisce if your of a certain age or older...

100+ Followers

So i have no idea what this picture has to do with having over 100 followers now, but google apparently does. This was the first image result when i searched for '100+' Seemed kinda appropriate really, so i hope you enjoy your random picture.

Thanks for the adds and the kind comments on what is essentially my soap-box on the internet.

This song seems very apt for this blog, so i hope you enjoy.

And remember, Random is Resistance :)

Well damn, i pretty much managed to kill myself over the weekend. Three nights out in a row and some pretty hard climbing inbetween = a broken me. Hence no post yesterday as i was trying to recover slightly, i managed it for a while, then went out again :)

Luckily the hardest thing i drink nowadays is coke so its cool. haha

Whilst lay in bed feeling sorry for myself i was surfing around looking for stuff to entertain myself and came across this video:

The Intelligence² Debate - Stephen Fry (Unedited)
Uploaded by Xrunner17. - Check out other Film & TV videos.

I also checked out some video's for songs that were played over the weekend that i haven't heard in a while, they brought back all the awesome memories of youth:

New disease - Spineshank

Anger - Downset

Well i should probably go check and see if any of my mates survived.,,

Whargle Flargle Bargle

That title is all the vocal articulation i'll be able to do after this weekend. I was out last night, i'm climbing today then going out tonight, and on saturday i'm going out for a friends birthday. Fun times.

So yeah, posting over the weekend may be none existent, if you've followed me and i haven't returned the favour, i am getting round to it, adding people in batches. Please be patient :)

So yeah, tuesday....

Yesterday was a complete write off, my throat was killing me, i ached everywhere and i had a fever. I stayed in bed and took all the drugs known to man and generally felt miserable and sorry for myself. My ever so supportive mates dragged me onto XBL so they could take the piss out of me, i returned the favour by pwning them on every game they chose. There are advantages to being the biggest geek in the group, haha.

I woke up today feeling much better, the fever had broken at some point in the night, though my bed was soaked with sweat (yummy) i had to ceased to ache everywhere, now i only ache in the major joints and my throat has calmed down lots. So lets hope this is the last i'll see of this thing.

I ventured into town today, needed to see some friends about climbing on friday before hitting a club (this will be a bad idea all round) and picked up some crickets for Fang. She needs cleaning out and i figured why she was being a moody cow recently. In one of my more lucid moments i went to my desk last night and saw that she had shed, so as a reward shell get an extra helping of crickety goodness tonight.

Whilst in my fever induced stupor i found some cool stuff on youtube that ya'll should check out:

Raining blood - Slayer (Piano cover)   This woman can shred on that fucking piano, check out all her videos, seriously. Pretty damn hot to boot.

Scantraxx roots - Headhunterz vs. Abject (nice bit of hardstyle :) )

Weapons specialist - Messiah (love the transformer sampling)

So yeah, bit of a mixed bunch, but i have an eclectic taste in music so pppfffbbbtttttt :P

Im off to go shoot some nazi's now, take care all.

I don't care if monday's blue.

Today it would appear my body is in full revolt. Yesterday i promised it a BBQ lunch, unfortunately the weather had other ideas and it rained, a lot. So instead i provided it with spaghetti bolognese. Seems this might have been a bad idea as today i have awoken with a sore jaw, the glands in my throat are swollen and i've got some achey joints......great.

Trying to brush your teeth when it hurts to move your mouth is definitely a new experience for me. My plan for today is a pretty simple one:

Feel sorry for myself
Watch the goonies and fight club
Wash the pots
Feel sorry for myself some more
Take more painkillers

Luckily im misanthropic by design so don't have to worry about actually talking to people.

To cheer myself up ill be perusing youtube between these activities, highlights are likely to include:

Miss Ann Thrope - My Ruin

Rasputin - Turisas

Pong - Eisenfunk

Thats pretty much me for the day, ill be perusing my favourite blogs and seeing if they can cheer me up anymore.

Sleep is gooooood!

So i went out last night and it was AWESOME!!!  Hopefully in some small part due to my amazing skills at handing out flyer's.....haha. All my request's got played, though i'm sure that's due to being friends with the DJ's more than my ability to convince someone to do something.

I finally rocked up home at like 4-5 in the morning :D went straight to bed and didn't surface until like 3 in the afternoon. Jumped in a quick bath then headed off to a family get together for a 25th wedding anniversary.

Free food = good
Afternoon/Evening with very extended family and a bunch of screaming kids = bad

So all in all in kinda balances out.

The rest of the night will be spent in front of the Xbox and the laptop, need to catch up on the hundred or so podcasts i've let build up whilst i've been revelling in awesome music.

Prepare the world's tiniest violin!!!

I suck dealing with members of the opposite sex who i find attractive. There, i said it! Its out there now, we can all move along to better things.

Some of those better things today include:

Dropping some packing boxes off for my sister
Sorting out the loft (MOAR PROCRASTINATING)
Have a fight with the tax people
Help a mate do some promotion for a club-night he DJ's at
Dance like an idiot at said club-night. haha

Today, better things will be accompanied by the musical stylings of:

Angelspit - Hideous and Perfect

Pendulum - Immersion

Kittie - Funeral for Yesterday

P.S. I'd like to thank you all for your nice comments and at some point ill think of a way to photograph Fang without her doing a runner, just for you David Davidson.

Chores, Chores everywhere...

Lots of stuff to do today that i have been procrastinating over the past few days.

Put the rubbish out
Sort the recycling
Do some shopping

And the most 'interesting' one, gotta clean out my spider, Fang. Fang was given to me by a friend as a newly hatched spiderling and we've been awesome ever since. She (i'm assuming she, its quite hard to sex them but the larger abdomen is a good a sign as any) is a False Black Widow, or if you want to get technical, Steatoda grossa.

Quick little link to piccies there.

I think i will accompany this very productive day with some music:

OSC/DIS - The Mad Capsule Markets

Walking With Strangers - The Birthday Massacre

A Violent Emotion - Aesthetic Perfection

Tuesday, 7 September 2010


Went out last night and got home at some ungodly hour this morning, it was turning light so yeah...

Sat up with a friend for a while chatting about our failures as people (theres alot) and eventually got some sleep. Woke up after maybe 4-5 hours sleep, had a KFC for breakfast (healthy i know) decided to write off the day so have just watched 'MODIFY' again. If anyone hasn't seen it and has some interest in body modification its well worth it.

Gonna curl up on the settee for a bit now and finish reading a couple of books i've been meaning to finish for a while:

Molecules of emotion - Dr.Candace B. Pert
Musicophilia - Oliver Sacks

And depending on how that goes, ill spend the rest of the evening on the Xbox.........goodtimes

Todays post is brought to you by....

It's only a few minutes long, but i highly recommend it. A talk by Derek Sivers filmed at the TED Global 2010. It really got me thinking about things, and i love stuff that has this effect on people.

Rotersand - Merging oceans

Had this song stuck in my head all day today so thought i would share it, it's from the album 'Truth is fanatic' 

This song was bouncing round my head whilst i was in line at the bank waiting to pay in a cheque as the self-use machine was bust. I mean come on, who uses cheques anymore?? its all done by bank transfer within a matter of minutes, not 5 bloody working days!! Get with the modern world, for the sake of my sanity.

What i'm currently listening to.

Nachtmahr - Alle lust will ewigkeit

After seeing them yet again tear it up, at INFEST! this time. I've re-discovered my 'not so lost' love for these Austrian EBM nutters.

Bad Religion - The process of belief

There really would be no decent Punk nowadays without these gentlemen. And whilst everyone (rightly so) proclaims Suffer to be their greatest album influence wise, i just can't go very often without digging out this one.

TOOL - Lateralus

Without a doubt the best tool album bar none. Definitely one of my 'desert island disks' i could listen to this every day and still wouldn't get bored. Killer artwork by Alex Gray as usual.

On a side note, check out this video if you haven't already seen it, all credit goes to TOOL for the music and the original uploader for the video itself:

Happy Happy Joy Joy

Yesterday i picked up this bad boy. I've not been this excited about an album since....well the last Combichrist one.

Is this album worth the hype? in one word i would have to say OHGODYES! This is by far the most anticipated Combichrist album, and after the tour de force that was 'Today we are all demons' it had a lot to live up to, and it certainly manages that and much more.

Stand out songs are:

Follow the trail of blood (featuring Brandon Schieppati of Bleeding Through) - Having Brandon do joint vocals on this track along with Andy just equals twice as much awesomeness, there similar yet distinct vocal stylings compliment each other rather than vying for top billing and this lends itself well to possibly being the best track on the album.

Fuckmachine - Does exactly what it says on the tin, and that tin say 'Be Awesome'. This song earned itself a place on my permanent playlist after only one play through.

Never Surrender - The first single from this album, and not a bad choice indeed. I can see this becoming a huge club hit very quickly, it starts as it means to go on, unrelenting and harsh. This is a rallying call for commitment to a cause, a cause you believe in and are willing do something about.
