03:40 - !J.O.O.E.! I realise now I get a lot of Boards of Canada vibes from it, which would explain why I like it so much.
03:39 - Apothecary Just scoping this [link] now, and it's pretty damn good. So I'm sure a full playthrough will be quite stimulating
03:38 - !J.O.O.E.! I think it'll suit your mood. It's more of an experiment in cinematic subtlety. Constantly shifting in a really mellow and pleasing way, with the odd edge here and there.
03:36 - Apothecary I just picked up from the urban pharmacist, so that'll probably be a good album to mellow out to tonight :)
03:34 - !J.O.O.E.! I still read it is drone as you mentioned DBR ;) Yeah I really like it. Really diverse mix of elements so it's chilled, creepy and heavy depending on what part of the album you're at.
03:32 - Apothecary Sorry, I meant *drone throne, not doom throne hahaha. I've seen you mention that Echoes Of Yul album though. That good, eh?
03:29 - !J.O.O.E.! I'd probably go for that Echoes of Yul record, although it's fairly light on the doom part.
Lettuce be reality, going to a metal gig is one hell of a boring affair.
"Who wants a pillow? One... two... three..."
Face it, in the best case scenario you just stand there... amidst a bunch of sweaty, hairy metal dorks... watching some other dorks on a stage attempt to play some instrument... while still other dorks ninja-kick the shit out of their imaginary friends... and you still stand there, with a warm and overpriced beer in your hand... getting drunk to the point you cannot remember where you parked your freaking car.
"Happens to me all the time" you say? Well not anymore! Here are 10 insanely fun-fun-fun things to do, suitable for any bored concert-goer, clubber and opera aficionado!!! ...but mostly concert-goers.
Top 10 Things To Do At A Metal Show
#10. Eye Candy-Only
Everybody loves to watch a show-off. So get more for your money and go to shows, not concerts. (If you want top-notch quality music, just stay at home and play a CD while holding a picture of the band in front of you.) So make sure the musicians you're about to see know how to handle their instrument. The more showing off, the better.
...Or better yet, go see musicians who play their instrument nekkid. Like Nick Oliveri for example(Captain Obvious says: NSFW)
#9. Make Some Noise
Unless you're into the whole "embarrassing yourself" thing, singing along at a metal concert is only acceptable if you manage to sing louder than the music. The general rule: the more extreme the band, the more points you get if you manage to out-scream them.
Out-scream Pig Destroyer? Challenge accepted!
#8. Bring Gifts
Oh goody, my favorite band is making a stop in my home-country! Seeing I'm by far their biggest fan and the world obviously revolves around me, I'll have to let them know I'm there, right? What better way to draw their attention than throwing them a present, like my own my sister's panties or one of my own my sister's plush stuffed animals.
However, do NOT throw any shit at Josh fucking Homme. Seriously, he'll buttfuck you in front of all of your friends.
#7. Only Go To Bret Michaels Concerts
There are several good reasons Mr. Bret Michaels deserves a statue. For one he is a total... hero! Everybody and their mom knows the charismatic Poison frontman/all-round rock 'n' roll supahstar is good-looking, smart and the epitome of masculinity. Secondly, Bret Michaels is tons of fun! But most importantly, going to a Bret Michaels concert will get you laid (no girl Barbie doll can say no to this face). If you're lucky, you might even mark a line on your STD bingo card. Go get 'em boys
TONS of fun.
So you took my priceless advice and went to a Poison gig, and lo and behold, you managed to bring some skank chick to your mom's basement home. Then what? Seeing that a metalhead finding a good girlfriend is as rare as finding a non-pedophile priest, there's only one thing to do... hold on to her, fool!
