  1. I'm one of those that complain every year, but my complaints are always about the inclusion of non-rock bands and the ordering/ranking of the bands.
  2. Good for her I guess, but I'd much rather have a new Ra record.
  3. I bought my Nexus 6P for $350 a little less than a year ago. It starting having battery problems a couple months ago, and since they were out of stock, Google replaced it with a new Pixel XL. Pretty sweet deal. I was debating selling it for around $500 or treating it in for $400 to get the Pixel 2 XL, but I don't think a slightly better camera and worse screen would be worth the extra investment.
  4. There's one reason and one reason only this group is still signed/touring/noticed, and it has nothing to do with music.
  5. Noooooooooooo! (I hate when bands do that.) I love 10 Years, but I saw a video online of them doing an acoustic version in a tour bus or something, and I have to say I didn't like it. A studio version could be much different though.
  6. Two great albums. I voted Metallica just because I've listened to it much more often.
  7. I have never considered a band like that to be modern rock. As an example, I regularly bashed Hollywood Undead and similar. I think it's a terrible genre blend.
  8. One of my favorite albums from the last few years is losing to a terrible rap metal group. I know they'd lose to Thrice anyway, but it's still disappointing they're losing this matchup.
  9. Best Metallica album in a long, long time.
  10. Heh... I'd be willing to withdraw my vote if necessary.
  11. I couldn't decide so I just voted for the one with less votes.
  12. Since you're a filmmaker, what are your thoughts on the pan at the end? At 3:29 I immediately noticed the camera on the tripod at top-left, and two guys partially visible. Then there's another guy by a desk at the end, but it looks like it could be a janitor or something since he appears to be pushing a vacuum.
  13. Hahaha. And I've noticed that those in an uproar are the same that love to use that term the most. I haven't dropped it on them yet but it's coming.
  14. Yeah, Fade In/Fade Out is a tear-jerker. I'm hoping that gets covered and somebody does some acoustic versions as well. The album overall is way too electronic for my tastes, and the lyrics are a little too preachy on a few tracks, but there are a couple songs I'd really like to hear in a stripped down form.
  15. Or they're aware of a pending suspension 😂
  16. Finally got my desktop setup and on ethernet I'm pretty much a million times faster than my computer is capable of even utilizing:
  17. I drove by a Whole Foods on Sunday and the parking lot was packed as usual, despite presumably everybody knowing prices were going to drop today. Very weird.
  18. My plan now is $85 plus taxes/fees/equipment for the Gigabit and Custom Sports & More TV package. I was paying $50 for the same TV and 100/100 internet, but when I moved this is the best I could do. It's a pre-wired building with fiber all the way to the wall jacks, and any internet plan was the same price — I could go down to 50/50 and the cost would still be the same. I'm going to do the same thing I did last time and call to cancel after a month or two. Then they'll more than likely offer less.
  19. I'm gonna whine for a minute that once again it looks like the Ravens will have one of the most dominant defenses in the league and they finally have what could be a very effective WR corps for the first time in a decade, while Flacco has an injury that's more problematic then they'll admit, Kenneth Dixon is out for the year, and the offensive line is a patchwork of second-stringers and injured vets. If the Ravens have a winning season, it will be because Justin Tucker sets an NFL scoring record.
  20. What do you do with all your free time while sitting at the computer waiting for stuff? But really though, what's the deal with that? Wasn't KC one of the Google Fiber cities? I don't understand how you can be so close to a population center (especially KC where I also know there are government data centers like DISA) and have speeds like that.
  21. Gigabit!
  22. I'm not saying he sucks, but for his price tag he's likely demanding I don't think he's that good. Like RG3 he was great until defenses figured it out and adjusted. By no means did I mean to imply he sucks and that's why he's not signed. I mean more that his skill doesn't match the likely cost and he isn't worth the extra baggage.
  23. That's the thing... If he were better, he'd be signed. It's kinda what Mike said, starters can be distractions but backups can't. I know he could be a starter on some teams for maybe the first part of the year and then be benched for future development once the playoffs are out of reach, but teams like the Jets don't want to pay him veteran starter money for doing just that. Especially with how prominent and powerful police unions are in the NY area. In the beginning, it seem like h was disenfranchised in general towards the anthem, but hadn't put a ton of thought into it first. The kneeling was after some PR coaching and publicized meetings. He also wore socks depicting cops as pigs in training camp ahead of the preseason. Then you have the Castro stuff after that. I think he basically has a general attitude problem, and the protest is just the one thing everybody is focusing on.
  24. To be honest it really doesn't matter. Unless you're going to be running a ton of tabs at once, the only difference between brands will be screen resolution/color and battery life. Some might have different ports or whatever, and some have touch screens where others don't, but for the most part the beauty of them is they're essentially the same. I have a Toshiba Chromebook 2 and love it.
  25. If that's the use case, why not get a Chromebook? That way she'll never have any problem with it. Plus, certain Chromebook models have (or will have) the option to also install Android apps.
