But it sure helps to focus on the really important things on other websites. It's kind of useless to access a website that shows flash videos with a textbrowser anyway. ^^
Yeah, why did you do that? :P

Because you said "Newgrounds would look bad", so I wanted to prove that point. :P

But for news sites, it can be a reall bliss: Automatic block of all popups and banner ads and thise stuff.
I suppose there's that point there but I'm not going to rush to get another web browser just for that.

I only do that when I'm on my netbook. The screen isn't that big anyway, and it's easy to open up a terminal and start the browser from there.

Fun to fly around, I guess.
You can even do some hollywood drama scenes then. Shouting "JIIIMMMYYYYYY!" out into a stormy night...
They better get the fanciest cameras just to shoot footage of me flying around.

They should film that in 4K.

It's a nice shop so it makes sense to have some excellent individuals running it. I should look at my spreadsheet later on and tick off the cards I do have now.
Sadly, all the good gaming shops closed down here. There's only one left, but they aren't THAT good.
There was a similar Liverpool game shop back in 2005. It closed down then and the closest place for such games was Manchester. £10 return ticket just to get there.

10 Pound is quite a lot. But I think the time traveling wouldn't be that much longer than what I used to travel to gaming shops (about 1 hour and a few minutes to get there). But I only payed about 5 Euros back then for a day ticket. Good god, now a day ticket costs about 10 Euros...

Brutal Planet reminds me a little of Nine in Nails and Ministry. I personally feel that Dragontown isn't as metal as Planet. This is addressed in The Eyes of Alice Cooper two years later.
I feel both are industrial-like. Does it suit Alice best? I'm not so sure yet but there's certainly worse ways to handle industrial elements. *points to Morbid Angel's abomination*

I think it's a good sound and his voice really suits it, particularly on Planet and Eyes. Dragontown wasn't heavy enough, being more Rock than Industrial Metal

Killer is good, but it's one of the very early ones, when it was the Alice Cooper Band. A very different sound, because this is before the Alcohol got hold of Alice.
I don't mind where the era is as long as it's quality Alice records.

Indeed.

Brown ketchup!
HP?
Can you believe it?

Believe what? You lost me on this one...

Now you're onto Brotherhood? Not even I have that game yet. After Just Cause 2, I could do with playing a game that isn't open world. Those are the kind of games that take a loooooong time. I'm 31 hours in for Just Cause 2 and have only done 25% of the whole game!
I'm about a quarter of the way through Brotherhood, already :P
Fuck, I better make some good progress with Just Cause 2. Well, I'm doing that already. If I get enough pickups in a short amount of time, I'll be all good.

I've got no progress coming up over the next few days - busy with work, training and dating, so it might be Sunday before I get another chance to get on there...

From Liverpool to Manchester is just an hour and to go from Wirral to Liverpool is even further travelling time. Far too much to go to one place on a regular basis.

That is true. Five years from now the levels will change again. Although I think it could be nice to be able to select a previous level that you have reached. So like this level today and maybe Level 26 next week if I feel like it.

Fair enough - I thought that Eyes was more Goth than Planet, but I'll let you judge them both for their own merits and flaws.

Sure - Anything that's not from the late 70s and early 80s is what you want to aim for. Those weren't his best recording years.

I used to be against the idea of being able to choose a former level icon but if they keep changing things around every few years, then I think they should be entitled to choosing lower level icons. I only have enjoyment for levels 50-60 while some were already level 60 and don't get the fun of having lower level icons.

So that's the following Alice Cooper album. Hmm, I should focus more on pre-90s albums. Most of the albums from the later era should be leftovers, although I do hear good things about Along Came a Spider.

So Killer is a good one to go with next?

Well, there's still plenty of albums to get even when you leave out a few.

Ketchup? With brown lobster?

Very very fun. Well, for the working aspect, I'll leave that to you.

It's actually not censorship from the ISP but rather they are incompetent with handling their internet issues. Over 24 hours this bullshit has lasted for. They say they will have it fixed by 7PM tonight but if not, this time I will see about a possible switchover. I think we've settled with Virgin Media's bullshit for far too long at this point. I've not heard of any ISPs having this trouble before so Virgin really need to make up for this. And it's not just Newgrounds that isn't working. Twitter has shown a lot of struggle with this issue and when you get Twitter to not working, someone's neck is going to be broken.

Personally I also find it really frustrating if my connection goes down for no good reason whatsoever.

I'm very relieved things got fixed on my end and all it took was a five minutes call. I was worried they were going to send me a new modem or something and I would have to wait for weeks before I would finally have an internet connection again.
