In more important news, i have no sky (fox/cable/whatever the rest of the world has) and the programming is getting worse and worse, something they are probably doing to get me to buy sky.

I just turned on the tv to old reality shows, funniest home videos, Step by step and full house, FULL HOUSE! who fuck is going to be watching these shitty sitcoms from the fucking 80's? out of all the programs in the world they are playing this shite


Exactly the same thing here... I hardly ever watch TV anymore, only the local News and the weather forecast :p

And yes, Full House is still on air in one TV channel here too


In this case, I'm lucky we guys sharing a common room(room having TV, Tennis Table, Snooker and music system) and got to watch Indian Premier League on TV. Our company gave access to cabel, common room and special dinner on Saturday. Ofcourse with saying that, no drinks allowed as we live in Kashmir.

Alcohol is banned here. So we binge on soft drinks.

Having said that, is anyone interested in coming to Kashmir?


Why should anyone go there?? And besides, I think India already has too many people as it is...

I respectfully disagree, sir.

Also downloading and listening is way less hassle and also faster than streaming with third world internet speeds.

I was not aware of that, that discussion is good but here are top 3 discussions involving Jooe.

1. His epic multi-page quote war with LeKiwi on the Cronian - Erathems thread here.

2. The feud on LeKiwi's vocalist thread here. Again a multipage one.

3. His disagreement with Troy on the Botanist thread here.

The sudden departure of Joe could be related to his health issues. I think he was suffering from high Blood Pressure or ADHD or both which might have took a toll on him.

I usually only log in to this site a few times a year these days, decided to come on today and grab a band recommendation off of JOOE's usual best of year list or his huge list of favorite bands. this site has lost a titan.

I tried to recover some of his lost works through google cache (hopefully the links work). You can save the html files before they inevitably will fade into the cyber ether. RIP.

EDIT: Nope the links won't work by the looks but you can always go and search the titles and get the cache yourself, or if for what ever reason you can't and you're desperate to once more gaze upon these relics shoot me a pm and I can send you the html files.

Hey, thanks for this. If you go to a combination of...

Well, I'm finished with making music, for real this time, put my guitars up for sale on FB and so on... I created an album, people liked it, it didn't make me very happy or ultimately give me any sense of purpose in life, as expected. It was somewhat fun but no more than a placebo that temporarily distracted me from the fact that I am not a person, who enjoys being alive and doing things. It's time to move on and find a hobby that actually makes me happy, I am relatively young and still have time. Won't delete my MS account though, nnnneeevvveeeerrr.

No 2nd Dreadrealm album? That's a pity. The 1st one was a good album. Good luck with whatever you do next.
For a new hobby, try playing Elder scrolls Online and watch people (still) bitch about the American election on a fantasy rpg. ESO: it's like the rest of the internet, but you can through mudballs at folks.

I must be bipolar or something, but even though I fully intended to give up on music, I can't. Went and bought a new guitar yesterday and am already working on some new tracks (more prog, thrash and occasionally doom oriented metal this time). I guess this makes my previous comment look rather silly But yeah, I'm trying to keep it all light-hearted and not dream too much of success this time, just to keep from becoming too obsessed. Might share a track or two somewhere on MS too, when I get something worthwile done.

Also, since I can't seem to let go of my somewhat abusive relationship to music, I can't completely rule out a 2nd Drearealm album.

Looks like you're a quitter when it comes to quitting, then.
Just go the way of Wintersun with Dreadrealm. Promise a new album for 10 years and I'll still follow along for the mythical opus at the end of the never ending tunnel of dissapointments.

Oh my fuck, this is the best advice I've ever been given

Seriously though, as I said in my Thank You video to fans on YT, if I make a 2nd album, it will be better or I won't release it. It's that simple. As an artist, I'd rather die than fall into any of the common traps like thinking everything you do is gold or thinking that doing two almost identical albums is a safe bet. I believe Steven Wilson once said that an artist has to make music for themselves and not their fans, because that's what an entertainer does, but I'd say the best results - both commercially and artistically - are born when an artist embraces both roles and realizes that without feedback and fans, he or she would be inconsequential.
