    So... my son decided around 4:30am on Friday that he wanted to join our world out of nowhere. He was officially born at 10:59am, five weeks early. There aren't enough adjectives to describe everything over the last three days, but it's definitely been an experience unlike anything I've had before so far for sure.
    He's doing well overall, but since he was born so premature, he's being closely monitored at the hospital and likely won't be released for another week. My wife is going to be sent home tomorrow. It just hasn't hit me yet when I look at him and say to myself "This little dude is mine!"

    Looks like a bitter broken memory is ahead for Atreyu. Sevendust gets my vote.
  6. American_Idiot received reputation from heldjc in Thousand Foot Krutch - 'Exhale'   
    I wish they'd put this up on Spotify.
  7. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2016 Round 3, Set 1: Dead Sara vs. Mayday Parade   
    Maybe not Mayday Parade all the way, but at least for this round, I got 'em.

  9. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2016 Round 2, Set 5: Foals vs. Dead Sara   
    I hear Nick's point here. When she has high notes or screams, it's not exactly the most pleasurable to hear. Parts of "Something Good" sound awful. Other parts are pretty good. Otherwise, I don't mind her a vocalist. "The Weatherman" is freaking awesome, but I haven't really loved any of their other songs that much.
    Foals to me is superior and one of the fastest rising bands over the last year, so they get my vote.

    But if you guys don't vote for Adele then her giant disembodied head will hypnotize and eat us.

  12. American_Idiot received reputation from RainbowDragon in Conquer Divide (All female metal band)   
    ^ That song was awesome. It's going for adds to Active Rock radio, so I'm hoping it does well on there to gain some more fans in the mainstream.
  13. American_Idiot gave reputation to jman3000 in The return of Rage Against the Machine?   
    I agree. Sucks it's not full Rage, but 3/4s of rage plus Chuck D and B Real is amazing. I like all 3 groups. I'm hoping they do some crazy political stuff. Fight the Power!

    ...and look what I found!
     
     
  15. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2016 Round 1, Set 15: Silverstein vs. Bobaflex   
    I definitely have to go with Silverstein. Much better band.
  16. American_Idiot received reputation from Music_passion_life in Blink-182 - California   
    I had to listen to it twice to really get a feeling what I think of it. I really warmed up to it the second time. It does feel a bit weird without Tom in the song, but I really like it. I absolutely can't wait for the rest of the album to surface.
  17. American_Idiot received reputation from Music_passion_life in New Papa Roach album   
    I'm impressed with this. Deep lyrically that you can tell Jacoby put his heart into with his past issues. I like it better than "Face Everything and Rise" actually.

    It's a fantastic album, maybe my AOTY so far. I'm a little biased because they're a Chicago band but Evan Weiss is honestly one of the best songwriters around right now and the band is fantastic, the songs translate so well live. Anyone who likes indie rock/emo/Death Cab for Cutie type stuff should really give it a listen, honestly.

    I saw their album "White Hot Moon" came out today and decided to check it out based on the band description since I've never heard of them before. I thought it was overall really good. They remind me of Silversun Pickups meets Cranberries meets maybe Weezer or The Rentals?
    This was my favorite track on the album below:

    Now, you can listen to "Black Honey." http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2016/04/27/475764110/vikings-choice-thrice-black-honey
  21. American_Idiot received reputation from Kalt in Blue October - 'Home'   
    I'm a huge Blue October fan too, but yeah I'm waiting for the Spotify release as well. It's really the only way that I can listen to music at work where 95% of my music listening each day is.
  22. American_Idiot received reputation from Vigo in 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs   
    So... yeah. I'm kind of bummed today that my boys are done until October. Although, I know I should be damn proud of the Panthers for starting of what should be many years of contending for a Cup. I'm not saying the Islanders didn't deserve to win their series. Greiss was a goddamn wall and Tavares was incredible. However, the refs missed that huge trip on Smith which led to Tavares tying the game up. The refs are just overall terrible in every series in this year's playoffs it seems. I saw plenty of bad calls or non-calls in that Caps/Flyers game yesterday.
    The Panthers special teams throughout the series was awful, Jagr was shut down, and they couldn't take advantage of winning the games (Barkov missing a penalty shot in Game 5 and Smith hitting the crossbar in Game 6). It's just amazing that the Islanders only led for 45 of 439 minutes or something of the series. I pissed off my Panthers buddies by saying that I'm still rooting for the Islanders in Round 2 as I refuse to root for the Lightning.
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to Game 7 of the Blues and Hawks tonight and that Caps/Pens series should be awesome.
  23. American_Idiot received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2016 Round 1, Set 10: Burn Halo vs. Courage My Love   
    Yeah, man. If Burn Halo made songs like Eighteen Visions did with "Victim," I might have made a different vote.
  24. American_Idiot received reputation from pen in MM2016 Round 1, Set 8: Buckcherry vs. Lindemann   
    At least Lindemann is worth listening to for the humor. Without their lyrics, I don't think they'd be bad at all. Buckcherry's album wasn't their best IMO, but still respectably good.
  25. American_Idiot received reputation from Vigo in Got (NHL) News   
    So... the 1st Round of the NHL Playoffs start Wednesday and I'm super duper stoked! All of the matchups seem like they'll be great series. It's also the first time since 1970 that no Canadian teams made it into the dance.
    This has been by far the best season for me ever being a Panthers fan. Words can't describe how amazing it's been as a diehard fan for the last 20 years now that they have an actual good chance to get past the 1st Round for the first time since 1996. This is just the beginning too of many great years to come
