    Ruiner, you're in luck...rumor has it that the next big PS4 update will introduce the ability to change your PSN ID.

    Mourn the dead but don't dwell on the past.

    I knew what you meant.  I don't agree with it.  Chester left this world by choice.  He forfeited his right to leave any type of "void".

    I mean, by definition he's a replacement. He'd be filling the void left by Chester.

    Linkin Park is still an incredibly popular band amongst people my age and younger who are into rock, more so than any other band. A lot of people I know were raised with the band, grew up listening to a lot of their songs and were affected a lot by Chester's death, which is something I didn't notice with any of the other deaths. Yes, I was born when Hybrid Theory came out. I've noticed the Minutes to Midnight-era stuff is what people love as well, which makes sense because that album came out at a perfect time for us to listen to. They were still very much "our" band, even if we were on the younger end of the spectrum.

    As someone who has had suicidal thoughts myself and has been in a hospital because of it, I refuse to believe someone could go through with the act itself if they are of clear mind and body at the time. I dont get the "suicide is cowardly" people because suicide in the ultimate sacrifice with no way back so wouldnt that mean you would have to have major balls to actually do it ? So how is that cowardly then when you have the courage to do it and courage is the opposite of cowardice ? Thats why I dont understand how someone could do it and not be fucked up.  When I thought about it, I thought about what it would do to my family and how they would feel guilt every day for the rest of their lives and how I would not want that for them. Of course Im thinking this all of clear mind, if I was wacked out of mind on drugs it would make doing it so much easier and I wouldnt be thinking about those it would effect.

    I "unliked" the Loudwire and Blabbermouth pages a long time ago on Facebook just because they mostly post junk, and I rarely ever saw any news on there that I didn't already know about, but mainly because of the comment sections on there were so terrible. I went on there a bit ago to see what was being said about all of this. If you want to see where the majority of the scum on the internet hangs out, it's right there on those pages. Just awful what some people posted in there about this whole thing. It's like a million Harty's having a conversation. Truly the armpit of rock/metal community.

    The thing with born-agains is that they have a tendency to be self-righteous pricks on certain topics.

    This feels different for me because Chester was a voice of my generation. Whereas I still loved bands like Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, they were very much clearly "90s" bands that belonged to Generation X, making most of their music before I was born. They were the elder statesmen of alternative rock that had already defined themselves as anthems for people who grew up in that timeframe. Linkin Park, as a 2000s band, was always one that fit in with my age group, perhaps the most popular rock band of the decade, and one who, as clichéd as it sounds, connected with people my age and younger. The people I talked to who like alt/rock music, and even some who wouldn't call it their favorite type of music, knew and respected their biggest hits. "In the End". "Numb". 552 million views for "Numb" on YouTube, one of the top five most viewed rock videos in history. I've said this before, but "Numb" was the first song I ever loved. I heard it in the April of 2004, when I was on a plane and I was bored and I listened to my dad's MP3 player. "Numb" was the one that I loved the most, and I played that damn song over and over again. The worst part was that I didn't remember the title of it, and it took me years to find out what that one magical song was. When I heard it again, I instantly knew that was the song. The first few seconds came back and I remembered, that was the song. They were the first band with screamed vocals that I enjoyed, and it played a role in changing my mind from me despising heavy music to me appreciating it. They were undoubtedly a gateway band, but their best songs still hold up today.
    When I was 12, I had a dream that Mike Shinoda had died, and it was on the news. It wasn't a nice feeling, but I got over it quickly. I'm reminded of that dream today because after it happened, I told myself, I won't have to worry about that for another 30 years. Someone once told me that you know you're getting old when the celebrities from your childhood start to die out. I just didn't expect it to happen this early.

    Letters from the Fire is generic radio/cock rock but the other band is pretentious indie hipster dribble.

    I appreciate that these guys are actually doing something sort of fresh with the active rock sound in a time when almost nobody is, but the vocal melodies and lyrics are both still too been there done that for me.

    This is hilarious and I'm totally on team Chad in this feud. Not because I agree with him or something because I respect his commitment to the slander and well, someone needs to root for him

    I just watched the first episode of The Handmaid's Tale. It's not a horror show but it's probably the most terrifying show I've ever seen. Imagine one of those young adult books/movies, only it doesn't suck and is totally awesome, make it R-rated, kinda give it a slight BioShock Infinite/cult feel to it and that's what it felt like to me. Elisabeth Moss was fantastic. She conveyed so much emotion while trying to show as little emotion as possible because of the situation her character is in. This is probably the weirdest show I've ever seen. The story of where it takes place, as well as what happened in the past and the greater conflict going on in the world that we hear little bits and pieces about in the first episode is totally fascinating and I can't wait to hear more about it. Also, this show features the woman who played Patti on The Leftovers in a role that seems absolutely perfect for her. I strongly recommend you people give this show a watch.
