Modern-day Hip Hop
Trap Music
Death Metal (in general)
Palace as a skate brand
Smokers
Doing livestreams on Insta
Adidas SB (since they jumped the shark)
Grizzly griptape

The Age of Narcissism that is upon us.

youtube is crazy. i really dont get why anyone wants to watch vlogs from other people, but apparently theres a massive market for it. my kid would sit and watch kid and family vloggers all day if we let him. what i really dont get is he would rather watch this one guy and his kids play videogames than actually play them himself. the only time he will play his own games is if i play with him.

it sometimes makes me feel like shit as a parent because the parents on the vlogs he watches are probably seen as the coolest adults in the world in the eyes of a child. they're super silly and energetic and they're always doing fun shit. i do my best at making sure we have fun together, but i cant force myself to act like a giant kid all the time the way these youtube parents do. it makes me feel lamer than i already am.

I for one think it's great that many people don't trivialize when someone comes out as being depressed as it's a very real condition and in the past there was a stigma about it. Big ups to Wayne Brady and Demar Derozan for putting themselves out there because that had to have been very difficult to do.

I definitely don't get the whole youtuber thing, which is weird because I watch a ton of shit on youtube (mostly skate stuff and music videos tho).

Irrational/unscientific views on things, mainly skate gear.

Examples:
Skaters happily accept these and are happily ignorant. I don't get it. In the end it's the skaters' fault for just being interested in who has the sickest team, not what gear performs best for them and the companies cater to mainly that. I guess being an engineer can make me obsess over these kind of details too much but I just have a hard time understanding the ignorance of a normal consumer and skater about the stuff they buy and use.

Don't feel too bad. Somehow these people have figured out a way to make a living doing those things, which allows them to devote all their energy to it. Also, if they lose said energy, they could lose subscribers, ad dollars and their livelihood.

Additionally, is that a realistic example to set for kids? That you can just play video games all day? Must be nice.

So, double-edged sword. Having so much energy sounds incredible exhausting.

Trap music. It's fucking shitty. Like really fucking shitty.

Posting skate clips to Instagram. What's the point? Posting anything to Instagram, really.

Loud diesel trucks, especially Fords. Its like what the fuck man. Why do you want you truck to sound like a god damn tractor?

Scooter "men". If you can drive yourself to the skatepark, or have facial hair, you're too old to ride a scooter. This is coming from a grown ass man that still rides a skateboard.

The way kids dress these days. What's up with that. You guys look weird, like little hobos who work part time as longshoremen. Wearing Mickey mouse and Disney gear that would get use beat up when I was a kid.

Why does Nyjah wear dresses?

People who are my age, early/mid 30s, who don't like their kids going to the skatepark, "because there's teenagers there who swear, and go to the bushes to smoke"
Yeah, That's generally what happens at skateparks. Usually some skating goes down too.

Younger people who vibe on me when they find out I skate because "it's for kids", but they play Pokemon Go or spend their weekends inside playing video games or some other lame shit like that.

yeah, youtube as a career is a weird one and defs on some Truman show type shit. My kid doesn't watch vloggers yet but if he did I'd at least try and let him know that what he is watching is "edited reality". Sure, those parents look all happy and energetic on camera but that's their job to do so. I follow a few super fitness mums on IG or whatever but I'm stoked when they post the mess that is their house or pics without makeup or whatever so we can get some sense of actual reality. I actually had a dream about all this edited reality the other night but I might save that for another thread.

Weird that your son would rather watch other people play video games, that shit bored me to tears when I was a young-in at the arcades!

mukbungs or whatever the fuck they are called? Like you watch people eat? Ummmmm that's some fucked up shit right there!

Skaters who drink energy drinks like it's fucking water.
actually quite scary when you think about the amount of caffeine/ additives in them joints. In their defense? I used to drink a tonne of 7-11 slurpees and jolt cola when I was a little skate rat which is probably equally as taxing on your body.

The Germans seem to follow older hip hop principles but you can't understand them.

I just don't get that indie shit with dude vocals that makes himself sound nasally and strained like choking on a dick. That's the only music I don't get, not the music but vocal technique. A lot of skaters love that shit too.

Also non-skate-related: fidget spinners. I've never used one, seems like the new yo-yo except much less creative I guess. Or like baoding balls for kids or something.

Gangnam style dances, I heard about it briefly. I guess it's a dance. At least kids are dancing and having fun.

Online video games that take forever. Why would you waste your time? Which ties into this:

i don't really get all the hate about facebook and other social media. it seems like you get out of it what you want. they are just modern photo albums and a way to keep up with old work friends that some people take too seriously.

This in independent of age, but still - business attire - this is a catch-all for shirt & tie combos, suits, tuxedos, dinner jackets, blazers, slacks, dress shoes, all that kind of thing.  As a kid, this is what tedious, overly serious and joyless old men wore.  What's the attraction with this?  I'm pretty fortunate that my career has no uniform or dress code (which is part of what attracted me to it) and when it comes to weddings, I put on one of 2 shirts I own with a pair of dark grey or jet black twill jeans and some new trainers/ skate shoes and I'm good to go.  Otherwise, now in my early 40s, I've never worn a suit and have always avoided graduation balls and similar formal events because of the whole dress code thing.  So we're going to go out, eat, drink, rage all night? Awesome.  But why am I expected to wear a suit? That shit is uncomfortable at the best of times, inflexible, stiff in all the wrong places, literally looking the same as everybody else. I don't understand the mystique and supposed aura of masculinity they're meant to have as everybody looks like a narrow variation on a theme.

Those Christmas cards lots of seemingly American families send out with a sickeningly saccharine sweet, fake smiling, co-ordinated Sunday best wearing outfits on the front.  In fact, mainstream studio portrait photography in general.

Teenage girls who dress to impress to go out for Sunday lunch with their family. 

People who like being outraged and offended.

The obsession with Starbucks.

Mac fanbois who lose their shit when somebody at work asks them to use Windows and decide they can't because Microsoft.

People who think not reading a book is badge of honour - definitely guilty of this as a youth.

I used to feel the same way and when I see a bunch douchey business bros I'm quite happy I'm not in that tribe (relatedly, when I hear the sound of women's dress shoes in a hallway it triggers thoughts of humorless adults [teachers?]).


That said, if you wear a well cut suit, you will most likely look really good and you may even notice people treating you better and women seem more interested in you (whether or not it's people who's favor you value is another matter). I probably only wear a suit once a year for a wedding, etc. but I'm always thinking afterwards that I ought to wear one more often because I'm suddenly not treated like the slob I really am. I don't, but there you go.

This in independent of age, but still - business attire - this is a catch-all for shirt & tie combos, suits, tuxedos, dinner jackets, blazers, slacks, dress shoes, all that kind of thing.  As a kid, this is what tedious, overly serious and joyless old men wore.  What's the attraction with this?  I'm pretty fortunate that my career has no uniform or dress code (which is part of what attracted me to it) and when it comes to weddings, I put on one of 2 shirts I own with a pair of dark grey or jet black twill jeans and some new trainers/ skate shoes and I'm good to go.  Otherwise, now in my early 40s, I've never worn a suit and have always avoided graduation balls and similar formal events because of the whole dress code thing.  So we're going to go out, eat, drink, rage all night? Awesome.  But why am I expected to wear a suit? That shit is uncomfortable at the best of times, inflexible, stiff in all the wrong places, literally looking the same as everybody else. I don't understand the mystique and supposed aura of masculinity they're meant to have as everybody looks like a narrow variation on a theme.

i don't think people who aren't customer facing should be forced to wear uncomfortable clothes at work but social occasions are different. i hate wearing that shit to the point that i was stressing out the other day because i had to wear socks and my feet go hot, i usually wear flip flops, but i get that people want to do nice events and dress to the occasion.

Mac fanbois who lose their shit when somebody at work asks them to use Windows and decide they can't because Microsoft.

you know why right? pc suck. i've got a contract right now that i'm running window on my mac in parallels and it's so annoying. i used to be a huge microsoft guy, to the point that i got awarded this MVP award they do a few years and used to use a windows phone and the whole nine but after mac started using linux as a kernel it was kind of all over. macs are just way, way better in just about every way except for the key boards. you ever notice that mac people don't use external mice but that's super common with the PC crowd? it's because not a single hardware manufacturer in the pc world can make a good mouse pad, i'm assuming because windows just sucks for this. that said i try really, really hard not to complain about using windows but man it is fucking hard.

I'm 30 years old and there is a ton of shit I don't get.

Social media is not a real place, dipshits. I don't care how many other idiots are "following" you, they all blow dick and are useless anyway. You are one server chrash/bug away from losing that shit.

Phone addiction. Oh, you could survive without the fucking thing 10 years ago but it is different now? I fucking hate people that think that the "iPhone changed everything". Wrong, you lack of personality in combination with the fucking thing "changed everything".

Oh, yeah. Most people these days have those fucking phone cases with their credit card, ID, public transport pass and phone in it. Great idea, dipshit! Get that shit stolen/lost and you are fucked beyond fucked.

The fuck happened with " don't put all eggs in the same basket"?

I wish Facebook/instagram/Twitter never existed. It turned our culture into this ďlook at me and how great my life isĒ society.Ē  Everything seems so superficial now especially when it comes to relationships.  I get that itís good for certain things like keeping in touch with old friends but ppl seem a little too connected now to the point where there is no privacy. I kinda miss the days actually when you would just call someone to see how they are doing after a little stretch of time instead of following what they are doing all the time on the internet.  I also donít understand how ppl are ok with posting tons of photos of their lives on the internet. Not a good idea IMO....just donít get it.

Now for my second rant....weddings. I had a friend who recently had a wedding out of the country and I couldnít make it because..well.. not everyone can just drop everything, hop on a plane, and spend a ridiculous amount of money just for a couple days to see someone put a fucking ring on someoneís finger. That person got mad at me and said ďif you were truly my friend, you would have did everything you could to make it there.Ē  Fuck you..you selfish entitled piece of shit.  Sorry, but you and your wife ARE NOT THAT SPECIAL!

I just donít get it ppl anymore...

Just how generally stunned people are....like you notice when you're on or waiting on an elevator someone is always so shocked about where they ended up?  Doors open and they break into surprise face.....

These things...they go up and down....they usually stop at the numbers when you press them....

Same goes for sidewalks....

I'm walking in a straight line on the right side.....why are you so confused?

I never thought they were right for each other. Their relationship always seemed very forced.  It seems like the only thing they have in common is partying together. Once they have kids I feel like their relationship is going to change dramatically and not in a pleasant way.

I just canít get my head wrapped around how self centered some ppl are.  Itís one thing if a couple sets a destination wedding and is completely understanding of those who canít make it, but when someone tries to ďtestĒ your friendship by making you feel obligated to do that is just fucked up.  I forgot to mention before that his bachelor party was in Vegas, which is all the way across the country from me (I at least went to that) and now he wants everyone to fly to Europe to see him get married? Plus a wedding gift?! Jesus fucking Christ. 

And damn I feel for you man.  Itís one thing being invited to a destination wedding that you canít make it to, but being asked to be IN the wedding as best man is a different story and a lot more stressful/expensive. Whatever happened to ppl just getting married in a fucking church or something? Save the destination shit for the god damn honeymoon for Christ sakes.

Speaking of weddings, your right about the honeymoon shit.

Fuck, my better half and I didn't even get "legally married". What's the fuckin point? We've been together forever, the fuck is a ring and shit gonna do? If I want a party I'll just throw a party. Government considers us married anyhow, so stupid.

Mac fanbois who lose their shit when somebody at work asks them to use Windows and decide they can't because Microsoft.

you know why right? pc suck. i've got a contract right now that i'm running window on my mac in parallels and it's so annoying. i used to be a huge microsoft guy, to the point that i got awarded this MVP award they do a few years and used to use a windows phone and the whole nine but after mac started using linux as a kernel it was kind of all over. macs are just way, way better in just about every way except for the key boards. you ever notice that mac people don't use external mice but that's super common with the PC crowd? it's because not a single hardware manufacturer in the pc world can make a good mouse pad, i'm assuming because windows just sucks for this. that said i try really, really hard not to complain about using windows but man it is fucking hard.

I use a PC at work and OSX at home, to the same level of ability - I like using, fixing and building computers in general.  Iím self employed working in 3D animation, motion graphics and VR, so I need something high-end.  The latest range of Mac Pros (from 2013 onwards) run AMD Fire graphics cards, which in themselves, are fine, but given that the vast majority of 3rd party render engines for 3D need Nvidia cards, effectively useless for anything other than Appleís own production software.  If I want to use a Titan or 1080Ti graphics card, I need to use an external case for it, so fuck that.  I use OSX all the time at home, or when I need to be portable and do some lighter work - for power and bang for the buck, Windows wins. A similar spec Mac tower wouldíve cost me easily 2-3 times more.

Like I said, itís the fanbois that fuck me off - the wailing and gnashing of teeth because theyíve refused to learn how to copy and paste in Windows or save a document, instead smugly proclaiming how creative people like them shouldnít need to use something as prehistoric as Windows.  Wilful helplessness is pathetic.

Now for my second rant....weddings. I had a friend who recently had a wedding out of the country and I couldnít make it because..well.. not everyone can just drop everything, hop on a plane, and spend a ridiculous amount of money just for a couple days to see someone put a fucking ring on someoneís finger. That person got mad at me and said ďif you were truly my friend, you would have did everything you could to make it there.Ē  Fuck you..you selfish entitled piece of shit.  Sorry, but you and your wife ARE NOT THAT SPECIAL!


A neighbor invited my wife and I to his wedding. His fiancee is Brazilian so of course they're having a destination wedding in Sao Paulo or some shit. They made a Facebook group for it. Apparently they want people to take a week off to come because they'll all be traveling to multiple locations within the country. Tickets are insane -- to the point they're actually recommending people take out a fucking Delta Skymiles credit card because it comes with a 60,000-point sign-up bonus (If you spend $3K in the first three months. I already would've had to go into debt to go to this thing (which I'm sure will be a blasty blast), but come on, dude. Don't be blatantly recommending people put their credit score on the line to watch you get married on a beach in South America.

Mazel tov. Send me a postcard.
What? That's fucking obscene. People are so selfish to think that they matter. So fucking selfish.

The worst is when people say things like ď oh you have time off and make good money, so thereís no reason why you shouldnít be able to go.Ē So then you have to explain to them like they are 10 years old why thatís a rude thing to say to people.

I think itís our generation or something. I have a hard time putting my thoughts on paper sometimes, but Iíve noticed a lot of ppl in my generation (Iím 28 btw) donít seem to have values or moral standards like people from older generations. This kind of links to what I said about social media and the ďlook at me and how great my life isĒ society.

Which leads to my new rant- Hollywood and the media.  We live in a very hollow, superficial and insecure world these days that is being controlled and manipulated by Hollywood tv and the media. Itís giving us this false perception and unrealistic goal that we need to be this perfect person when in reality there is no such thing as perfect and everyone is chasing after something thatís not real.  People have become so distracted by this that they are completely missing the point on what makes a good fulfilling life. 
Iím only 28 but I feel like an old man that has given up and ran out of gas.  I canít keep up with this fast paced world that seems to completely revolve around trends and ďlooksĒ.  Kind of explains why I canít relate to anyone anymore, not even my own friends.  Maybe I need to just shut up and relax ...idk, I think about things a lot.

You're pretty much there dude. You see through the bullshit and know what matters and what doesn't, so just stop caring and worrying about all that shit and do what makes you happy. Don't worry about your friends social media pages, don't worry about TV and hollywood celebrities, don't worry about trends. Just worry about the shit you like. It's easy.

not trying to be argumentative but i'm pretty sure no one, anywhere, ever would smugly make the argument that macs are better for gaming than PCs.

my world is modern web\mobile programming (aka javascript) and that world is aligned around mac in the same way that design world used to be. the JS world is constantly changing with new open source tooling coming out constantly. all that tooling assumes mac or linux, if you are on PC then you will spend hours and hours trying to follow the special instructions for how to make things work on a PC and after you get everything patched together it's just not going to run anywhere near as good or be anywhere near as stable and troubleshooting issues will be way harder because the PC community is just not there to support it as everyone is on mac. then let's assume you have a team of devs who's time you are paying for and then re-billing to clients. we can't charge our clients for all these delays, it's an unjustifiable expense on top of the image issues that go with using a PC in this world. it's basically the same as showing up at the skate park with a beard and scooter in full pads. instant kook vibe. the cost difference is inconsequential because developers are way, way more expensive than mac book pros and having a mac in this world is like wearing a suite in financial services.

and outside of that, the simple fact that mac's require way less maintenance and you don't have to constantly reboot them for no reason at all, they have way better mouse pads, in general have way better build quality and their opinionated approach and proprietary hardware means that for most common use cases they just work meaning you spend less time configuring and tinkering with stuff. i also find the destops based approach in mac to be way better for my flow than the windows based approach in windows.

without a doubt their are scenarios where PC is a better choice but to deny that there are also plenty where mac is better choice or to assume people don't have good reasons for having that preference isn't looking very closely.

I've never seen a bail like this, I guess my rant is more toward how fickle gravity is  :-\

let me take a crack at it. it looks like he's used to landing his fs flips just shy of 180 degrees and powerslides the last few degrees celsius. it wasn't necessary w/ the 10 foot drop but his muscle memory still was going for it.
the ground was particularly grippy [wouldn't expect that indoors] and his wheels gained purchase instead of sliding a little bit and his feet kept going like a body when you hit the front brakes on a bike.

trap is basically the style of beats that are popular now. mumble rap is a style of vocal delivery. the two can be mixed together.

people like this shit because the beats are catchy and the lyrics are dumbed down so much that you pretty much know the whole song in the first ten seconds of hearing it. you dont even have to think about it, its just something that sort of sounds cool and makes for good party music (in some peoples opinion). its loud, obnoxious, intoxicated and rebellious, which is what has been popular with young people for decades. the sounds always change, but they always seem to fit those characteristics.

it's not for me, but that's the easiest way i can explain why i believe its popular.

anything else i can clear up for ya'll?

  (I meant to quote silloette right here)   In front of his ultra kooky all white audience he talks brutally about dj music  which actually is hip hop and it started in Jamaca (dancehall).  Hip hop appealed to black people  in part because white people had appropriated  jazz and rock (and also because hip hop is good music).  So Rollins goes in about "sam cookes sweat" cause he's a jazz snob fuck and thinks it gives him creditbility.  He veers his dialoge so that its sounds like he's taking aim at "rave" music when in fact by definition he's condemning hip hop but he doesn't say the words 'hip hop' cause that would make him look like a complete racist (wolf in sheeps clothing).  Seriously tho fuck that 40 y/o audience for laughing at Rollins' 'jokes' and same with anybody who would go to a Joe Rogan stand up and laugh at/support his non funny shit too.  Rave music was sick as fuck anyway.

  (I meant to quote silloette right here)   In front of his ultra kooky all white audience he talks brutally about dj music  which actually is hip hop and it started in Jamaca (dancehall).  Hip hop appealed to black people  in part because white people had appropriated  jazz and rock (and also because hip hop is good music).  So Rollins goes in about "sam cookes sweat" cause he's a jazz snob fuck and thinks it gives him creditbility.  He veers his dialoge so that its sounds like he's taking aim at "rave" music when in fact by definition he's condemning hip hop but he doesn't say the words 'hip hop' cause that would make him look like a complete racist (wolf in sheeps clothing).  Seriously tho fuck that 40 y/o audience for laughing at Rollins' 'jokes' and same with anybody who would go to a Joe Rogan stand up and laugh at/support his non funny shit too.  Rave music was sick as fuck anyway.


ok.........dude you're wrong on so many levels I don't know where to start....ok first off I hate this "appropriation" concept. Music and culture and ideas is supposed to transcend color and disseminate across society, not stay confined where it started. Or you think skateboarding is a white boy sport too?
also no, he does not mean hip hop. he talks explicitly about the euro electronic scene, which has been huge for over 20 years. And by the way in the 90's, hip hop and house/techno did not mix at all. Those 2 scenes were total ennemies believe me.
Finally if you're a musician, you know electronic music has become so easy to make with current software. Compared to the work it takes to get a band to sound tight, it's like comparing skating to rollerblading.
Oh and Sam Cooke ain't jazz....

 Well you may "hate" the word appropriation but jazz blues n rythym ect was refered to as 'negro music' by white society for decades.  They had to have different radio stations for black people.
  And the words I heard him say were a direct slap in the face to hip hop, "your not a musician you don't do shit you sample records"  he says that shit plain as day and he was talking about "dj's".  Again djing house dancehall rap hip hop whatever originate from the same people's culture as jazz and blues.  And yes dude I get that rave music and hip hop weren't mixing culturally in the 90s but they were both coming from 70s new York dj culture which came from dancehall, come on.  Lets hear him explain exactly what a dj does to a drunk hip hop audience instead of the coffee crowd.   
 "Getting your band to sound tight" and producing music that people will enjoy are 2 separate things although not mutually exclusive, they are not the same.  I hope that as many 'musicians' realize this get their shit together instead of blaming pro tools and other people.

not to get into a drawn-out argument....especially over a Rollins rant! You can take it or leave it.
But you have to stop thinking in black and white terms...Electronic music, rock, and yes even jazz also have white roots. It's not just "black" music. It's american society that tries to draw clear lines. A lot of the first jazz players were mixed and had received classical music training, in La Nouvelle Orleans you know?

If everybody followed your line of thinking, skating would still be for blond surfer types and Afrika Bambaatta would have never sampled Kraftwerk....

  It's not "my line of thinking" its a real live truth.  Skaters get shit on but they've never been arrested' murdered or harassed for the specific reason that the bulk of it's participants were\are white.  Other activities where the predomitant amount of particapants are black the police have history of targeting and murdering (not to mention other authorities who fuck over black people).  The skate comparison you made kinda sucks cause your not showing you get the diff.

give surfing back to polynesian cannibal groms.
everyone borrows from everyone, if it's rad. if it isn't rad, it gets left out of the anals of history. jazz was made on european instruments by african people. that's collab right there. dj's didn't invent dj equipment. rappers [ones that count anyways] rap in english. pre-mexicans invented soccer [using a severed head for a ball]. white dude invented basketball w/ peach baskets.
if everyone took their ball and went home i think germany and japan would have all the cool stuff.

yes, let's unite in our rants boys! I don't think Frenchie posted that to get into some huge discussion about origins of music either, he was just posting another old man ranting. Rants don't have to be logical or even justified, that's the beauty of them.

I fucking despise Jiggers (Japanese Wiggers) who think they look gangsta by skating around a semi enclosed skatepark while smoking cigarettes. Sure sit down and have a break/ smoke or whatever but I don't want/ need to inhale the pollution that comes out of your decomposing lungs every time I go to hit up the funbox. I guess the beauty/ irony (and darwinism?) in all of this is that they actually pay corporations to (slowly) kill themselves ... just wish it would work a bit quicker :-\ Dear Jiggers, I don't get you, can you just go and die somewhere else please?

I've been playing drums for 30 years, and producing and making electronic music for about a decade, and I'm confident in saying that playing in a band is 100 times easier than producing for me.  Its a lot more than pressing a couple buttons and music comes out.  Its more akin to composing for and conducting to a room full of musicians, except you are also every musician, not to mention functioning as a recording engineer. 

I also DJ, mostly with a computer and dj controller,and sometimes with vinyl.  I have respect for vinyl djs, but for the most part it is a fetish and largely impractical.  I could bring a crate of records to an event to stoke my own ego, or I could use the DJ controller and play a way better set.  Again, its not just pressing play, there's still a lot that goes into it (taste and selection goes a lot farther than mixing skill in my opinion, but I have a lot of respect for people that excel in that area).  I think its criminal that DJs are so celebrated though.  At the end of the day its just for fun and not to be taken so seriously.

That Rollins rant is completely out of touch and embarrassing.  Electronic music, hip hop, etc owes just as much to Krautrock and Music Concrete as it does to anything else.  Like most art forms, it can't be traced back to one source.

really? I've been playing for 30 years too.....(bass) And I did electronic music for about 10 years as well. Even had an LP out on a small French label with that project. So I'm really surprised by your statement. First off, in a band, you rely on other people. Which makes everything so much more complicated than doing everything yourself. At least for me.
And second, when it comes to recording/producing, it's just so much easier with electronic stuff, everything happens inside the computer.....As a drummer you know how much work it is to record a drum track right?!

Also, notice I said "with current software"...Before Ableton Live came out, it took us fucking hours to get a sample in sync on a track. Now it's basically one second with a flick of the mouse.
Totally agree on the DJ stuff though: yes it's fun, but not to be taken too seriously. My main gripe is that it's partly killed the live band scene here in Europe. When I was around 18, there were so many underground shows and a young band could find places to play easily. 20 years later, that's just gone. Most places just get a DJ for the night.

i agree with you about the dj stuff.  its pretty infuriating that i can get a couple hundred bucks for a dj night with my laptop and controller, and i might make 40 bucks if I'm lucky for a show of original music after bringing out my own gear.

with the production stuff, I guess it's all about how much you put into it.  there will always be those people (trap rap, etc) that are just going to fire up garage band and copy the hottest beat using the same presets.

i'm really into hardware drum machines and synths, so I don't do anything "in the box" except for mixing.  I might spend days making drum sound, for instance.  I also play live with hardware, and its a lot harder for me to play synth with two hands, while triggering sequencers, and changing drum patterns, than it is for me to get behind a drum set and bang away.  I've gotten into modular synths the last few years and that's a whole 'nother world of complicated.  I think the worst part of being in a band is all of the politics and drama with other members; playing in a regular band almost feels like a vacation to me at this point. 

before I got into this stuff, I felt the same way.  i thought it wasn't "real" music and didn't take any talent or effort.  now, on the rare occasion i play in a regular band, i get pretty bored.

As far as music goes, I don't really dig much of the popular electronic or rap stuff thats trendy now, but the fact that it's getting kids hyped to create is something I can't be mad at. If all they need is a laptop and some pirated software to make their own song, then great. Less learning curve means you get to spend more time creating what you want.

everyone who rides a scooter instead of a skateboard or a boogie board instead of a surf board knows they're lame. they may not act like it, but they know. if someone is ok with being lame, i dont give a shit.

but i do think its great that if someone wants to take a shot at music they can do it without much of a commitment and probably pick it up fast enough to keep interest. how many kids do you think get guitars when they're really young and what percent of them give up because it takes too long to get to the point where you can actually play something that doesn't sound like shit or because their fingers hurt after one lesson. i bet its pretty high. the squier strat was a pretty common dust collector in many of my friends bedrooms growing up.

sure, they've made it so riduclously easy that we've had to put up with more and more garbage "producers" and musicians, but i don't have to listen to them and i dont give a shit what they do but i like the idea that they're having fun with music. music is for everyone and there's no right way to do it.

  Body boarding is as old as standup surfing.  It's sick as fuck.  I haven't got into it yet but I've seen people out.  In mexico culturally I found it was wave dependant.  More than half the time I was seeing surfdudes on they're boogie board.  It's not like that other places but I figure they know whats up.  Mexicos the shit. But what could possibly be wrong with it anyway?  Scootering and snowboarding might be wack but it's probably fun (edit actually I don't think snowboarding is fun compared to skateboarding)  Dirt scooter jumps with a dirt scooter might be fun.  I'd try one.

Snowboarding back country is fun as fuck. I wish I could do it again!

It's not skateboarding but I'd back country as much as I could still if my knee wasn't fucked

  Maybe one of the bindingless setups would be easier on your knee.  Asmo is a sick company to check out if you like pow.

Thanks for the suggestion, genuinely appreciate it.

But if you recall I totally blew out my knee 16 months ago and it's taking forever to rehab because I have "reflex sympathetic dystrophy (fancy way of saying nerve damage that makes the healing time 4-6x longer).

I'm just stoked I can walk for the last 4 months without crutches.

Safe to say you'll never see me snowboard again.

Right now I'm just on a big push to get back on a skateboard this summer, even if it's just rolling around I'd be super happy(and I'm on track for that!)

*bumps*

#woke people who believe that corporate hiphop is haven for occult sex rituals and satanic messages/ run by illuminati etc.

back story: so a while ago this dude asks me for advice about vegan food in Tokyo on insta and I oblige. I don't even think anything of it, but when I'm looking back through my DMs he's changed his name to escape_the_matrix or something equally cringeworthy so I decide to give him a follow for a laugh ... well I guess that was first mistake right?
So they make some post about Drake being gay and the comments section is a fucking cesspool, like literally the worst shit. I say something like, "rather be gay than be a homophobic arsehole" and this morning there's like 25 insightful replies by dude like lilstoner_420 "what's wrong with being a homophobe you faggot? 'they' planted the gay seed in us, you #fakewoke"

fucking hell... Professor Griff would be proud I guess?

i also dont get why people like stupid instagram celebrities like fatjew or that slutwhisperer guy. im sure there are more, but those two come to my mind. ill get sent their pages once in a while too and im always shocked at how many of my friends who i thought i respected follow those losers.

those profiles are set to private just to make people crave the need to 'follow' so they can finally get to access the almighty content, and the profile owner can make more dough out of their desperation as they're all sponsored or monetized. i've seen some of those pages before because they were sent to me as well and some profiles seem to constantly be switched from private to public to back to private... just so non-followers can occasionally catch glimpses still (and hopefully 'follow'). it's all pathetic advertising-oriented mental pollution and yeah, you're better off not falling into that hole.

I saw some kid at the skatepark drop in on the big bank, not roll in...and then powerslide to slow down once he hit flat. It's trending too, because theres a handful of em' trying to GX1000 it on every bank.

I use Instagram a lot, but all the accounts I follow are basically just old skate shit, indie brands and mags, local skaters that I think rip and are genuine and then the rest is photographers and artists I think do cool, constructive shit. occasionally I'll stumble upon those fucking typical trap music edits with excessive slow-mo on stupid trendy 'tricks' and shit and it feels so different from the activity I love I feel like I'm watching rollerblading. not talking shit on anybody's style when they skate their own way, now that's sick... when they actually do skate their own way, something many would like to claim, but realistically can't.

They go private because then it forces people to follow them and they can charge more for placements/ads and also sell more info to the secret chinese data farmers.

I only learned of this kid when I saw some article on snapchat pop up "Why Lil Xan doesn't take Xanax anymore" it just makes me laugh looking at him, or any kid with face,hand or neck tattoos that are only in those spots.  Not against having tattoos in those areas,but used to have an issue with shops or artists allowing it...then I realized you can get a shitty tattoo gun or poke kit online.

You just gave me a lot of ammo, my friend.

About mindless consumption.

I live in a brand new appartment building and work in an office. The amount of stupid bullshit people buy is beyond insane. Total typical middle class psychosis, it's all about the newest shit.

You can't just buy a phone, it has to be the latest iPhone, you have to have tons of shit on your balcony. As I said, the building is brand new and people still modify and buy stupid shit for the interior. When working out at the company's gym, nothing but brand shit.

About people not doing anything.

As many of people on here know, I'm an ex-addict, so going to after work is not in my interest at all. So when I say that I have to train/play a poker tournament/whatever, they always tell me how "boring" I am. I mean, I have tons of interests that involve actually doing something and grinding to become better at it. These cunts just sit around a table and get fat on all the shitty food and beer. When I ask if somebody wants to do something, that involves actually doing something, no interest.

Yeah, not doing very well here...

the park I'm talking about has a roof so semi undercover. I have no qualms about smoking in a designated area, like some scummy ashtray in which they can all huddle (and die) around, but I'm talking straight up ciggie in hand when skating around the park which is vile and dangerous if I'm skating there with my kid. Pick up their butts? Lol like smokers over here have any sense of responsibility when it comes to that.

Smokers are my ultimate pet peeve and serve no actual purpose in the world other than stinking up everything around them, creating excess rubbish, killing themselves slowly and ultimately putting a huge burden on the medical system. If only their cigarettes would work quicker...

The one thing about being sober and consumerism that bums me out as you try to involve others and it's either time constraints no time to think things through or it's wishy washy and becomes a hassle to ever really bother that person, as maybe myself it's being either too needy or too whatever else etc and so forth if you don't have some kinda direction or tell them hey this is what i am into either get with the program or fuck off.... mainly those just fuck off I don't try to be taken serious and maybe it's my fault for having a direction and drive that is unquenchable but fuck me right when you have everything and relying on others to help out is the worst..... That's why I quit being in bands too many captains steering the ship or no one taking things seriously, had a great show lined up with a few crusty and heavy metal bands, I say hey we could really take off with this put together a set of songs and demo's, well that was short lived I get bummed trying to extend the olive branch and yet no one reaches out to reciprocate the offers.

you're outside... so... toughen up princess.
nah but seriously as long as the put their butts and other rubbish in the bin they can smoke all they like.
the park I'm talking about has a roof so semi undercover. I have no qualms about smoking in a designated area, like some scummy ashtray in which they can all huddle (and die) around, but I'm talking straight up ciggie in hand when skating around the park which is vile and dangerous if I'm skating there with my kid. Pick up their butts? Lol like smokers over here have any sense of responsibility when it comes to that.

Smokers are my ultimate pet peeve and serve no actual purpose in the world other than stinking up everything around them, creating excess rubbish, killing themselves slowly and ultimately putting a huge burden on the medical system. If only their cigarettes would work quicker...

bring it baby, bring it!!!

Now lets not beat around the bush some skaters and their "crews" are fuckheads. case in point Santa Cruz has a shitty quasi nazi bs only so and so can skate here blah blah, I've seen it and got punked at a park as they tried to take my beer. Thank god I saw the bs coming and dipped before they could grab my beer. I actually miss bladers then some skate kooks, at least they know they suck and can joke about it, some skaters don't want to admit a lot of times it's their fault for being assholes...

And thatís fine, IF you have some sort of awareness. The smokers I deal with have none and thus Iíll call them on their shit.
Be aware too that my wife has a condition in which being anywhere near cigarette smoke makes her really sick so itís not easy to just sit back and go, ďyeah bro, live and let liveĒ when I see what it does to her...

As for the vegan thang, I donít say anything to people eating meat around me but donít tell me you wouldnít call someone on their shit if you saw them bashing a dog in front of you. Anyway, eating meat in front of me doesnít immediately affect me so Iíll keep my mouth shut unless someone wants to start that conversation, cigarettes directly cause harm to my family so I feel itís justified if I rant at someone for having no awareness.

I've got a handheld vaporizer for my medicinal weed. It doesn't really create much of a cloud or a smell. Regardless, a man and woman walked by me the other day while I was using it, and the woman asked the man "is that one of those vaper fuck boys you were talking about?" I couldn't even be mad.

That said, I don't get skating in athletic windbreaker pants. I feel that any extra mobility they offer is negated by a severe lack of sturdiness in the fabric.

Some cities in America are passing ordinances (not ordnance) that ban fireworks. I donít mind that but a lot of people think itís an unAmerican commie plot.

fireworks are banned mad places. we always had to go to new hampshire to get them. in chicago you gotta go to indiana. i'm guessing there's prolly about 1/2 that allow and 1/2 tthat don't.

I totally get that they stress dogs out and that aspect of them sucks.  My dogs are 14 and 15 and are mostly deaf so it didn't bother them.  One thing that I like about fireworks is listening to them as I go to sleep and being so thankful I don't live somewhere that has actual bombs/gunfire going off. Definitely lucky in that aspect living in the U.S. (within suburbia anyway).

Curbs are fun though. I ate shit on one last week so bad someone driving by did a u-turn to make sure I was ok. Pretty sad, but funny. Some older dudes pump the bowls at the park fully padded and others hit curbs. I think for a lot of them hopping a fence as a grown man isn't in the cards when they can get coffee and skate at the nearest park before going back to real life

Slappies are much more enjoyable to watch than kids who only skate in perfectly built concrete parks or TFs.

And not all of us have access to much more skate stuff. I only have curbs and curb high manual pads where I live and I'm not about to give up skating because theres nothing else to skate.

How is this not cool?

I don't think progression and slappies are mutually exclusive. I still try to learn new tricks, including flip and ledge tricks, but I also like to do slappies sometimes. Slappies actually took a lot of trying for me to learn. They're a weird trick. Still have to figure out backside ones better. Frontside are easier for me.

I stopped flipping my board at 25 because my knees were shot....almost 20 years later I'm still skating around and I don't miss it at all.
Not everyone ages the same you know. some dudes can still rip at 50 and others have destroyed knees/ankles/back/whatever.....

What I honestly don't get is staying at a spot (usually driven to) that has one obstacle for hours and hours. I'd much rather cruise around going fast and never get in a car at all when I'm going skating.

I think that's why I love videos like Ban This (Ray Barbee's part :) ), even though it's super dated and the music is awful, it emphasizes the freedom you can feel from skating. And why PJLWHL is my favorite "modern" skate video and stuff like gx1000 appeals to me. Those guys are just kinda skating around. They're doing things I would never dream of trying, but in the end they're using their skateboards to get from one place to another. Lines > Hammers.

Pros skating at a spot until they get a trick makes sense because that's their job but I don't get why people choose to do that as often as they do.

If you're 38 and didn't grow up on shaped boards, when did you start skating?

I'm 37 and I skated at ton of powell peralta/santa cruz/vision/etc with some big ol' wheels before the popsicles and 39mm wheels came along.

And we didn't have any red curbs where I grew up but we had those curbs with the semi-rounded metal edge thing on them which we certainly skated a bunch when we didn't feel like pulling out the quarter pipe or launch ramp.

Also to add to what your saying humbling yourself when someone asks how are you I give em a look of I don't know?! You tell me...... I don't define myself or my skating as great or shit I just try to have fun and do stuff that is easy if it looks cool rad if I think it's shit that's my opinion and no one else's. how many times we've skated in whatever town and had some jagoff scream do a kickflip or dude do a etc etc trick, I give a wink and blow a kiss like you want to suck my dick too? or blowjob motion jerk off motion of fuck off, If dipshits are going to make jackass' of themselves might as well play along and creep them out gives a good laugh what were you expecting dumbass?!

I think people generally want to be liked, even on an anonymous forum, and rep sort of reflects that.  I think if nobody cared people would stop using it.  I mean it takes some effort to hit that gnar/kook, and people care enough to react to what someone said.

I asked for a kookin in some thread a while back, I think one or two people remember that and kook me if they see me but idk. Has removed any meaning my rep could have.

Karma on reddit can totally make you happy but it's super fleeting. I made a joke on there and got like 4000 upvotes and two golds. I was hyped for a couple hours then I tried to tell a friend about it and they Did the "cool story man" thing and I realized the whole thing is pretty pointless. There s no fulfillment in internet upvotes/reps.

this might just be me projecting, but i don't get why any fellow old man skaters give enough of a shit to rant or judge other's abilities. i'm lucky enough to be in the very small club of 40+ guys that can still do so-called "good" tricks, but i never look down on another old guy, or even a younger skater that can't do all that much on the plank. in fact, i usually have no idea what anyone else is doing unless we are sessioning the same obstacle or section because i'm just too old to care.

I do pay attention to,what people are doing because I like seeing people land shit no matter what their skill level is.....it's awesome.  I still try and learn shit all the time but I have the clarity and perspective to know it can't always be that way and so if you wanna call it a day now....so be it. 

Ok....back to the task at hand....what's with people taking too much time and not having their shit together when ordering.......  You ever in a line waiting forever and the people in front wanna taste every fucking flavour of ice cream....or it's a donut shop...all they have is the donuts which you've been staring at for the last 14 minutes....why so many questions????  You applying for a job here?  No?  its just coffee....why so many questions?  Oh....short .15.....how bout I get the rest....

the ones who think almost everything is "gross" or "nasty" and eat only the most processed, flavorless crap that's loaded with sodium and chemicals? those types of people are very close minded about food. they're the types who, if they ever travel, will eat only at american fast food chains the entire trip. and they call people who eat adventurously "hipsters" or mock it some other way. of course, we should all eat only burgers, hot dogs, french fries, and pizza for lunch and dinner, and refined flours and sugars for breakfast. fine dining is the occasional trip to olive garden or red lobster where they will eat mostly carbs and cheese.

I'm stoked on old fogies no matter how good they are. When little kids/teenagers  just do the same tricks day in day out I kinda stop hyping them up. Sometimes ill suggest they try new tricks, just trying to get them thinking. I've seen a couple girl skater's who have completely stagnated because everyone cheers for every trick they do. Or so I deduce.

This is true.  I am lucky to live in a big US city and love to eat, "Adventurously."  We have a Korea Town and one of my good friends is Korean, speaks and all.  We went to a hole in the wall place with her and her husband with no English on the menu. Servers spoke very little English. I just told her to get me the craziest stuff off the menu.  Most of it was pretty good.

The worst is people who say they want to eat something unique or adventurous, then have a melt down when everything on the menu has something they don't like. Or when they order something, but minus everything that makes it unique. I've learned that chefs make things the way they do because they think it's the best way they can, so I put my faith in the chef. If I don't like it their way, fine, but at least I tried it.

Itīs not so much a rant but rather something I have always wondered about since I started skating. Why do a lot of skaters sit down when someone better as them is skating the park/spot? Are they intimidated? Is it because they fear their abilities being judged? Do they think they will learn something while watching skateboarding in realtime? Do they think they are not entitled to skate the park/spot when someone better is around? I never understood that. 

I just recently thought about this again because a group of younger guys arrived at our DIY and were just sitting around for 2 hours until they left. On the way home I saw them skating a different park.

Also I need to know what these "good" tricks are? Asking for a friend of course.

I think if you've got some skills at the specific activity, then it might be easier for you to do that with someone much better than you and have that person be a form of motivation. But if you really lack in skill compared to someone, it might be more intimidating than motivating. I play guitar and am very terrible. If I walk into a guitar store and there's a group of guys demoing some guitars and they're shredding, I'm not plugging in next to them and struggling my way though some easy riff that I only get half right because I'm going to look like an idiot. The same can apply to skating and lots of other activities. That's why they have private lessons for beginners, so they don't have to feel intimated learning next to people who are experts.

If I can skate an obstacle, I'll skate it with whoever. I don't care if I'm trying something super easy and everyone else is landing hard stuff. But if it's something really far out of my skill set, I'll probably sit out or just skate something else. You're not going to see me bailing Ollie's for an hour on a big set when people are landing flip tricks down it or half assing nose slides on a waist high ledge if others are doing serious tricks and making it look easy. I know my skills and big sets and waist high pop aren't part of that. If I were to want to learn that stuff, I'd probably do it at a time when I'm alone and don't have as big of a chance at looking like a fool.

I came back from lunch once and one of them was on the ground, underneath his truck, insuring that you could see the stickers on his suspension. Lift kits and jacked suspension that you will never ever use. That's intelligent. Or putting big rims and thin tires on a truck.

But everything is not a classic just because it speaks to you. So much music is disposable and will be forgotten in 2-3 years, give it time.

I am old, not so bitter but more tired than anything and as much as I practice having more patience it's not working out.
So people (and this seems to be younger people more than anything) who think that everything they like is a "classic." "Everything Drake performs on is a classic." No, it's not. It's mediocre, and mediocrity is so celebrated these days its absurd. You like Drake? He really speaks to you, huh? That's great, Wu-tang does the same for me. But everything is not a classic just because it speaks to you. So much music is disposable and will be forgotten in 2-3 years, give it time.

Hahaha. I'm an older hip hop kinda guy. I had someone put me on run the jewels which was decent, and I very listened to el p for like 20 fuckin years already lol.

Then I found czarface which in theory should be amazing, but way too many corny intro outro shit. Few banger track though

Then I was put on post malone. Downloaded an album before listening and wtf??? I dont get it. How the fuck would somebody think I'd like this shit? Its indeed, horrid.

It's like hes modern times DOOM or some shit.

Anyhow, listened to j. Cole last night and that fucker can rap. It's not amazing, but hes kinda like a modern NAS. A few tracks are really good lyrically and have catchy hooks.

One track, I think it's called atm. It's all about money. Normally I hate that shit but he made the song pretty fucking good. Good enough I listened to it 3 times anyways

how i took it was that a lot of teens are more aware of how social media effects their reputations and use it more responsibly than their parents. i have a handful of younger cousins in middle and high school who have added me on instagram and snap chat and all of their parents have more obnoxious accounts. my cousins spend a lot of time on their phones, but their parents are the ones stopping everything so they can share everything they do.

i think kids know theyre one wrong move away from total humiliation from everyone they know. adults dont care.

The whole "glamour truck" thing. The Ford F-150/F-250 so beautifully clean and pristine, congratulations on spending so much on a vehicle that you will never ever use for its intended purpose, which is hauling shit. And being in Texas, this is the worst, it's everywhere. I used to work with 2 guys that drove practically matching F-250s that they kept spotless and insisted on parking next to each other. I came back from lunch once and one of them was on the ground, underneath his truck, insuring that you could see the stickers on his suspension. Lift kits and jacked suspension that you will never ever use. That's intelligent. Or putting big rims and thin tires on a truck. You had the ability to get through any street in any condition, now you're struggling to get over some train tracks because you might damage your rims. It's like, are you doing this to impress men with the same thing? Other men that you don't know? Why do we place so much importance and worth on our things that we own, not realizing that we allow these things to determine our worth? You don't see that? No? Ok.

ive been told when you have a little dick, you buy a big truck.

im not a car guy. i drive too many miles to keep cars nice and dont have the money to buy anything cool. a car to me is a transportation tool and thats it. but if you're into cars and want to customize your shit, go for it. cars, trucks, vans, whatever, do your thing. it doesnt bother me because i dont care about that stuff.

the one thing i don't get, or i guess i just dont like and agree with, is the dickhead truck drivers who feel the need to express their ignorance and their desire be a jackass to the whole world. im talking about the lifted "coal roller" guys who drive around blowing black clouds of smoke while flying confederate flags and whatever other alt-right stickers and decals they need on their truck. it's not even like they're trying to act like badasses, its like they're on a mission to piss people off. if you're able to afford all that shit, you should be old enough to have grown out of the pissing people off for fun phase.

plus the confederate flag shit is just fucking retarded, especially where im from. i live in a state that borders fucking canada. there is no southern heritage here what so ever. i see confederate flag stickers, license plates and all kinds of other shit including real flags on cars and trucks way too often, and all that says is "I'm a racist and you need to know it".
Yeah, outside of Houston there is a special breed where these shit hats have a truck that spits constant black smoke and they have a combination Texas/Confederate flag they proudly fly.
Up in here in my podunk jn Missouri we have the same thing every summer. The truck gangs (and crotch rockets) all meet up in the same parking lot and race up and down the highway that goes through the town. I once drunkenly went with them (thought my ass was about to get lynched) and will admit it's stupid fun being that high off the ground and race other trucks BUT I felt immediate shame when I sobered up.

In the same vein, I don't get the people here in Missouri that wave Confederate flags. We were a Border State, we stayed in the Union while still having slaves. It's of course "Heritage not Hate" but it's not even their heritage!

The trap edits on Instagram. They all seem the same, maybe not the tricks but the edits are all exactly the same.

the trend around me that i dont get is these new swim shirts. my wife bought one for our kid and he wont go swimming without it. i tried taking him to the beach one day and he couldn't find the shirt and i had to convince him that he didn't need it and that nobody needs a shirt to swim in. we get to the beach and literally every male there has a shirt on. adults, kids, everyone. it used to just be people who were overweight and probably ashamed, which i get, but now its everyone.

i can see the benefit for people who burn super easily, but i feel like good sunscreen is all you need. plus swimming with a shirt is just uncomfortable and it sucks.

No shit Ice Cube and Dre were producers. Everyone knows that. The authenticity of the movie was heavily discussed after it came out. Dre was made to look like he was a much better person than he really was. Ice Cubeís shit was factual and he still looked much better than everyone else in the movie.

Ice Cube had some solid stuff over the years and was a very good writer.  Boyz In the Hood was a great role for him.  It's pretty funny now that he's a family movie type guy.  I still don't know where Dr. Dre got his PhD.

They're for getting from a to b and having fun along the way. Rough ground is no longer gonna completely stop you and learning tricks on them is strange and fun. Can Ollie up curbs and pretend you're in the eighties.

Can't do Post Malone, got in and out of Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Future and all the other top 40 my wife pushes on me haha I'm stuck on old Ice Cube right now but always bounce around genres and subgenres

Fuck Yeah! me too.. ive alwayd been more of a metal guy, but since I watched Straight Outta Compton a couple weeks ago ive been listening to Ice Cube a lot

Iíve never seen a music biopic with a more clear hero than that movie. My friends and I all walked out saying ďMan, Ice Cube really is the shit huh?Ē

I'd be the hero of my own movie too

(https://i.imgur.com/bYwDY8l.png)

No shit Ice Cube and Dre were producers. Everyone knows that. The authenticity of the movie was heavily discussed after it came out. Dre was made to look like he was a much better person than he really was. Ice Cubeís shit was factual and he still looked much better than everyone else in the movie.

Oh I don't care nearly that much

Vodka is for people people who like to drink on the reg but think that drinking will make them fat. I think most vodkas have no calories or anything. Its like choosing frozen yogurt over ice cream? I myself dont really understand vodka. Especially buying expensive vodka over cheap vodka.

Alcohol has a whole bunch of calories. Vodka just doesnít have any additional calories from carbohydrates (and protein) like beer for example. There are definitely differences in how vodkas taste. Iíve never had any of that expensive shit cuz I think itís mostly bullshit and I rather drink something with flavor but some vodkas are crazy smooth and some are harsh as fuck. I pretty much only drink vodka at some traditional dinner parties where itís a tradition to take a shot every now and then and get hammered.

But the taste of alcohol is a funny thing for sure. Drinking a 40% solvent which has been seeped in burned wooden tanks for years and that supposedly tastes good. Weird fucking stuff but I do like some whiskeys. 🤔

Beers have a crazy variety in tastes. IPAs Iím not personally a big fan of and itís a stupid fucking fad right now but some of them are alright in the right situation. In general I donít understand very hoppy beers, hoppy to the point that theyíre just bitter but to each their own. 😊

Alcohol has one less calorie per gram than fat.

BUT. The body burns alcohol calories in priority because it's not viewd as dietary calories buy the body

That's why if someone drinks alot but doesnt eat after getting drunk, they'll be rail thin

If you eat after getting drunk, the body stores alot of fat because burning alcohol is the priority. So that's often the beer gut guy with man tits.

Also, the brain is the only organ than wants to operate on fats.  Alcohol depletes fats and an energy source so voila! Hang over(yes hydration and b vitamins play a roll too to a lesser extent)

Wanna test this? Get drunk. Dont eat. Take 10-12 grams of fish oil before bed

Hangover DRAMATICALLY decreased

Also this is why drunk people want fat food.

Nobody gets smashed and thinks " fuck it, I wanna salad"

That's your brain saying EAT SOME FUCKIN FAT

Just buy a bottle or 2 of liquid softgels. They usually come in 180 sofgel bottle with 1000mg per softgel

I agree 100%. I like closer more and definitely prefer New Order to JD.
This totally rips though. Probably my favorite JD track.

Death Grips is pretty polarizing, so I wouldn't worry about missing anything if you don't "get it". I think Money Store is alright. It's got some good jams, but some of their other albums are just a little too out there for me. I think it was the last Happy Medium video that had like 4 or 5 Death Grips songs and that was total overkill. Made me not want to watch it again. I do like Zach Hill as a drummer though. He's insane.

What don't you like about Motorhead, Gay Imp?

I have a similar thing with Black Flag. Pretty much all of my favorite bands name Black Flag as a major influence, and there is no denying their contribution to punk and hardcore, but I've just never cared for their music.

Black flag is ok, but theres a whole thing of which era you like. Usually it's a fight over Rollins or Dez being better, but people forget about Keith and even moreso about Chavo. Same thing with the logo like Joy Division,people love the four bars...A LOT. Its like if you own a company, and you want to let people know you like punk music you do a rip off of the bars.

Motorhead-Orgasmatron and Overkill are where its at!

I HIGHLY recommend The Sound's first album. I was really late to the party on late 70's early 80's post-punk/goth/new wave stuff and had really only heard the more mainstream and popular stuff (JD, Siouxsie, Gary Newman, ect.) until a few years ago. Once I finally dove deeper into that style, I found so many things that I couldn't believe I hadn't heard, or couldn't believe wasn't more popular. The Sound was one of those bands.

Never tried raw turmeric myself. Some places here have it at least occasionally but all recipes i've come across just call for turmeric powder. Never come across food that uses raw turmeric, even in India. 🤔 Gotta look into it more though as I've been sorta fascinated by it before, but not enough I guess. :)

Fuck anyone who eats those overly ripe bananas where the skin is all spotty brown already. Too fucking soft and overly sweet and terrible. Had a chat about this with my work mates and it was just confirmed more that they fucking suck. Fuck unripe bananas too except maybe for cooking.
The bananas with brown spots have a lot of anti cancerous properties, jus sayin.

I'll rather eat turmeric powder straight from the jar than those bananas for my anti cancer fix.
  Yah forget the powder and buy raw tumeric and peel it.  Tastes pretty good -why fuck with the powder, -nobody eats carrot powder, do they?

Never tried raw turmeric myself. Some places here have it at least occasionally but all recipes i've come across just call for turmeric powder. Never come across food that uses raw turmeric, even in India. 🤔 Gotta look into it more though as I've been sorta fascinated by it before, but not enough I guess. :)
Ha I didn't look into it either. Just been buying it and eating it unprepared.  Hopefully it's healthy.
