  1. Past hour
  2. Should I plan my vacation to Texas in '24?
  3. Asuka has a broken collarbone and will be out for 6-8 weeks.
  4. Yeah without a doubt! One thing I never thought I'd say, I hate Wendy so much more then I hated Skylar in BB. I cannot wait either, that last episode was awesome.
  5. Today
  6. I don't really find this album bad, but it's quite different that the first. This album is without a doubt a grower, give it some time guys Their debut album was stronger, but this one is still really good in my opinion. 7/10 "Half" and "Same Soul" is my favourites so far
  7. On a serious note, idk if you are a fan of this band or not, but I suggest you take a listen to this.
  8. I can't get into Night Verses.
  9. Incredible.
  10. I see what you did there.
  11. I didn't make the same mistake. Bastille gets my nod.
  12. It's a close call, but I'll give my vote to Yellowcard this time.
  13. Manzier. I hope someone gets that reference.
  14. Thought originally I would've liked the Wovenwar album more, but this Sixx AM doubled down on awesome.
  15. Whoops.
  16. Voted for Issues. It's quite a close call, though.
  17. I like Phantogram, but I've been a Chili Pepper fan for a long time so they get my vote.
  18. Go, Sick Puppies! Avenge Capsize.
  19. Ten years ago today I called in sick when BioShock came out. What a wonderful day. I'm pretty sure I also called in sick when the two sequels came out as well. Happy 10th birthday, BioShock! A YouTube channel has launched for the franchise as well and I can't wait to see what 2K has planned for the future of one of my favorite franchises.
  20. Everyone who voted for Skillet will pay for their transgression.
  21. (death glare)
  22. Upon a first (working, highly distracted) listen, this is really good. December's ending definitely had some Red vibes and the guitar breakdown towards the end of Reversal reminded me of Chevelle. So I can see those comparisons. I can hear the 10 Years reference as well because the lyrics aren't obvious and beat you over the head with simplicity, and the music is kind of moody, dark, serious type of stuff. I haven't listened to Demon Hunter in order to compare - although I have heard that their latest album has little unclean vocals, maybe I should give that a try. The other albums I hear a lot when listening to this is Sleepwave's 'Broken Compass' and CrashScene, almost like this is a sequel to their S/T album CrashScene. I can also hear a little but of Wovenwar and Heartist in the vocalist's tone. All four of these albums I just listed are some of my favorites from the past few years, so that's a good thing. I think this album is going to be one of my higher ranked albums in the year. Definitely high up as far as hard rock goes - I need to listen to it more and learn it, but it definitely has everything I'm looking for, especially the hard aggression and borderline vocals without ever crossing the unclean line, along with some really good variation as xeph advertised! No song has the same beginning or the same end. For example, Hallejulah's ending is him yelling with a hard stop, and then right into Infinite Winter's soft opening with delayed vocals. I'm not sure why more hard rock bands don't do this variation often anymore. The little bits of echoing vocals, little bit of pianos, some light electronics on this really give it this edge of variation that I like.
  23. I think I figured out a glorious new opponent for AJ.
  24. Another brilliant episode. Even if the finale is a massive disappointment, I think this season is a lock for best season of the series so far. Some of the early seasons are kind of a blur because I watched them all back-to-back but I think I remember liking season 1 the most. This season has probably surpassed it. Hopefully they stick the landing in the final season and go out on top. Other thoughts... - This is kind of silly but one thing that keeps bothering me is the new guy playing the Night King. I feel like his appearance in season 5 looked a lot cooler than he looks now. I went to google a picture of the old and new one to post here and actually saw an article talking about it here. The old Night King is on the left and looks amazing and the new one is on the right and looks kinda like a Power Rangers villain. - I kinda had a feeling a dragon was going to die in this episode. And the second it went down I knew it was going to become a White Walker Flyer dragon. - I'm thinking that the guy who came back to life a bunch of times is going to eventually die saving Jon. That's probably why he returned a bunch of times. And speaking of that stuff, I imagine Melisandre will play a big part in the final season and when that happens, I hope they explain more about that ink monster thing she gave birth to. That hasn't been mentioned in years. - What was the point of Jon's uncle? Why even introduce him in the show? He had two appearances that I can recall and helped out the Stark kids but we'll likely never find out why he was half-dead or something and clearly they only brought him back this week to die as he had plenty of time to get on the horse...unless he wanted to die. - In a way it's kinda goofy how quick stuff happens now. Like I get that they're all closer because they seem to all be heading towards King's Landing but it just seems weird how in about 12 hours Gendry can run back to the wall, a raven can get all the way to Dany and she can fly all the way into the middle of nowhere and find Jon and friends. - I do not like Jon bending the knee. I want them to be equal partners and to destroy the iron throne when they reach it, not sit on it. And the line about breaking the wheel this week seems to imply that.
  25. Last week
  26. I haven't been as into the newer pop-punk wave of bands that have sprouted over the last five years or so compared to the early 00's. However, after I gave this a listen yesterday, I was pretty impressed. It stands out from many of the other generic pop-punk albums and bands that I've heard this year and there's a variety of music on it. I'll give it an 8/10 overall so far and I'm looking forward to giving it some more listens in the near future.
