Those who are really insisting on that joke after 7 years are clearly retarded. Thankfully that doesn't apply to you.

Good question. There's a girl I know who was put on ritalin as a kid and her mom has since allowed the addition of several other meds since. It's to the point now where she needs them just to function normally in pretty much every way -not to mention she's underweight because the shit she's on suppresses appetite. Watching that kind of thing develop over the years has instilled in me a dislike for prescription drugs.

Jesus. That goes to show what bad it can do to a human being. I try to not take allergy tablets all the time just to settle eczema down. If it feels like I won't get comfortable shortly, then it's necessary but I can go a few weeks without the need to take any.

I try and be tolerant because we do have a 3 year old cousin who can be loud and obnoxious. Not only that, what if I had a child? Mind you, I don't even have a relationship so having a child is far off for me but it's still a point. In that potential future, I have to understand children better.
God, I pity you. :P I'm 25 and without any offspring. Call me greedy, but I like living my life for me, though I suppose that may change as a get older... (Or maybe not.) lol

I've had enough free time for myself. I really would like to start a relationship since it's been so long since I last had someone and I need to start looking at the future. I think with the new year I have at least attempted a new things in hoping I get someone but I need to give it time.

Who is Burke?

Yeah, it was like a month after I graduated high school. I spent much of my summers before that picking basil and getting paid by the pound. (It was actually decent money, for a teenager, though it was hard on your back.)

I was at University, when Chop Suey / Toxicity were released. Fantastic, enjoying some time down at the Old Bar

If only for Neil Peart.
And Geddy Lee. :P

Nah, I prefer Alex Lifeson to Geddy, if I'm honest. Peart is a demigod of drummers, with only guys like Buddy Rich casting a shadow over him.

Burton was awesome. One of the greatest dead rock stars, much like Keith Moon.
My favorite bassist, along with Geddy Lee and Geezer Butler. Steve Harris also blows me away with his quick fingers.

Percy is a fantastic bassist, although he is a West Ham fan...

Classic record. Probably one of the best produced albums ever. The mixing of everything is simply spot on.

I always liked Deliverance better. Even though, you cannot really say "Deliverance is better than Blackwater Park" or vice versa. Both are just great.

I made a better attempt now and it worked.
That's good to hear. It should be easier to adjust your sleeping times a bit more towards "normal sleeping times" now.
Yeah, I woke up at 11:30AM today. Still fine and maybe if I'm wearing myself out with work around the house, it'll be another easy night.

You only have a sleeping problem when you are tired as hell but you simply cannot fall asleep. I had that a few years ago, where I simply couldn't sleep for about 3 days. I mean, I maybe dozed off every now and then, but "a good nights sleep" is something completly different. Luckily I could sleep on the 4th day.

Who knows, but they should still have their own show. Fuck going to Download just for one band.
Yeah, attending a whole festival for just one band isn't that great.
Especially when Download tend to have terrible bands on. It's bad enough Maiden have shit choices for support act for their live shows.

Most support bands just suck ass.

You'd have to get to Germany via France if you want to go by train, as far as I know. Planes are a much faster way to get here. ;)
Not much of a surprise there. I'm more comfortable with trains than I am with planes. And besides, trains should be cheaper than planes.

I don't know if trains are really that much cheaper. But I do know that planes are just way faster.

The only reason I say never is that No-one could replace Freddie Mercury, like no-one could replace Michael Jackson. Sure, the music will be good, but it's not the same without them.

Wasn't there a show once where they had Freddy on a big screen (various tapes from their live shows) and the rest of the band live on stage? Or maybe I'm just mixing that up with some other band.

Also, I never was a fan of MJ. Especially in his later days he was just annoying.

It's not just his bass playing, though. (Which is awesome, anyway) But the fact that he plays two different instruments and sings -the guy's freaking talented. Lifeson is a great guitarist, though. I always saw him as the "overlooked" member of Rush, which really attests to the talent of that band.

I think that the fact that they have been in business for 44 years and have had a sum total of five members. I mean, Maiden currently has six.

13 is the name of Black Sabbath's new album. Do creative album titles even exist anymore?

MGS4 is an obvious one. God of War if you're into it? I'm not but surely it's a title to pick up if you're into it. I could do with dusting off my PS3 a bit and play some more games on it.

Eh, you have to book TWO journeys just to get to Germany from here by train. Well, there's a matter of getting to London by train first. :P Shame it can't be more like National Rail where it acknowledges multiple changes along the journey. Thankfully this isn't something I need to worry about for the time being. Unless it becomes a planned family holiday, I'll only go to Germany for either live shows or if it so happens a relationship with someone will be there but that idea is highly unlikely.

At least it's not a whole day waiting for the damn band.

But things tend to go wrong on festivals. Rain storms or other diffculties... Blind Guardian had to finish their show early on W:O:A 2002 because of a storm warning. No storm came, but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. I think there where some deaths because of a storm at some other festival earlier that year, but I can't seem to find anything about that.

He has made a great recovery. His illness was discovered soon enough and it's helped for the whole band to do regular check ups. This has been mandatory ever since the death of Dio.

One thing for sure, neither of us will consider having kids within the next five years. Next ten years on the other hand, depends how your life is at that point.
Yeah, I just have this idea that I don't want kids in my 20's. I still feel like a kid myself a lot of the time, not to mention I'm not even close financially speaking.

Yeah, it's those two factors. This is why sometime in this decade I'd like to build up my finance.

At least self-titled albums are a tradition. Calling one album simply 13 after not recording an album in fucking ages is just unexciting.

Blackwater Park did give them the recognition they needed and they celebrated their 20th anniversary with this record for a very good reason.
Yes, but the song "Deliverance" contains one of my favorite drum parts ever. Every time I listen to it, I think "how on earth can there exist people, that DON'T go crazy when they hear this?!"

Medical treatment? Fuck that, I've tried that before and it's not helped me at all.

I understand Maiden. Just not as well as you do, apparently. :P

Great to hear. I can't wait to hear their new album.

Yeah, it's those two factors. This is why sometime in this decade I'd like to build up my finance.

I had a tidy sum stashed away, but then I lost my job and have been living off it now for a while. I hate watching it dwindle away slowly -all that hard work... ;_;

The EXP update can show you that easily. That's a likely case since NewsReporter is an 07 user and he's level 42.

No, I'm saying I wonder at my ability (or lack there of) to deposit exp. on a regular basis. I KNOW there are '09 users who have more exp. than I do. :S

Well that sucks. HMV have gone into administration and I had a voucher waiting for when I'll go to Oxford Street in a few days time. Surely if anything is going to hell here, at least the shops will be open for this week so I'll make the most of it. If HMV does go down the tubes, then I'm pretty much done with high street shops for life.

Testament - Dark Roots of Earth

I'll still listen to it but I'm really sceptical at this point.

Ugh, getting a job is going to be even harder with all these big companies going down. When I say this country will crash and burn, I say this is the beginning of the end.

Dear me. I think early 2010 users can get as much EXP as you have now.

Exactly what I was trying to say when I complained about bands self-titleing their first albums or calling their live albums "Destroying Wacken" etc. :P
At least self-titled albums are a tradition. Calling one album simply 13 after not recording an album in fucking ages is just unexciting.

No, self-titling the debut album is just lack of creativity. Also, I doubt that Black Sabbath '13' will be as good as the other album, that comes to my mind: 13, lol.

Blackwater Park did give them the recognition they needed and they celebrated their 20th anniversary with this record for a very good reason.
Yes, but the song "Deliverance" contains one of my favorite drum parts ever. Every time I listen to it, I think "how on earth can there exist people, that DON'T go crazy when they hear this?!"
Because people lack taste in music, that's why.

Yes, that may be a reason.

Actually, that sums me up.
Oh, okay. Well, hopefully it will sort itself out. If it doesn't, then you might seek medical treatment for it after all. :/
Medical treatment? Fuck that, I've tried that before and it's not helped me at all.

Well, there are different pharmaceuticals you could try.

Eh, you have to book TWO journeys just to get to Germany from here by train.
Well, that's what you get for living on an island. :P
Indeed, this is what I get for living in a craphole.

Yeah, just move to Germany. German isn't THAT hard to learn (despite what other people might say). :P

Yeah, just not in the world of Black Sabbath. Maybe they took a leaf out of Adele's book, though that should make their latest one... 191

Good. I have 2 more meetings to take minutes for and type up, before I can get away for the weekend. The last one finishes at about 4pm on Thursday...

Exactly, so I definitely didn't congratulate him. ;)

I think that the fact that they have been in business for 44 years and have had a sum total of five members. I mean, Maiden currently has six.
I know they had a drummer before Peart; who was the 5th, another guitarist, I assume?

Jeff Jones was a founding member, along with Alex Lifeson and John Rutsey. He was a bassist and their vocalist.

Wasn't there a show once where they had Freddy on a big screen (various tapes from their live shows) and the rest of the band live on stage? Or maybe I'm just mixing that up with some other band.
They did put that up at the Olympics, I believe. It's not the same, like War of the Worlds with the hologram of Richard Burton
Nah, I was thinking of some even that took place years ago. Actually, I'm pretty sure it was Queen.

Well, Freddie has been dead for over 20 years.

Also, I never was a fan of MJ. Especially in his later days he was just annoying.
The first album I ever purchased was Bad. I may not have agreed with some of the aspects of his personal life, but his singing was fantastic.
Well, he did have his moments. "Thriller" is awesome (not only because of the video) and "Billy Jean" is good as well.

I loved that, plus the whole film, Moonwalker. Something that is very him, when he was at the height of his popularity, circa Bad.

I just can't bring myself to be skeptical about Sabbath, it just sucks that the reunion is incomplete with the absence of Bill Ward... :(

Ugh, getting a job is going to be even harder with all these big companies going down. When I say this country will crash and burn, I say this is the beginning of the end.

It's tough these days all over, for sure. I'll admit that I'm more than a little apprehensive about my financial future. :\

Yeah...The very earliest 2010 users (like early January) with a 100% deposit rating would have roughly the same exp. as I do. I feel even worse now, thanks. :'(

Wow, I honestly had no idea that Geddy Lee wasn't a founding member. Cool how they were able to keep the bassist/singer combo with Lee instead of adding a 4th band member.

I'll only agree self-titled albums are lazy if they're mid-career and not right at the start.

Yes, that may be a reason.

Still, Blackwater Park is one of the best produced albums out there. I guess Steven Wilson has a thing for knowing how to produce an album well. Rick Rubin should brush up on his work. :P

It's cleared up already. Although, my voice still needs to recover but that shouldn't be a problem. I just better make sure I avoid high pitched vocals for karaoke.

It's easy for me to be doubtful, especially with how Ozzy is nowadays.

And I thought it was hell in 2008. It didn't look so bad then. Now it's five years on and we're still in hell. I guess hell is eternal.

New CDs!

Body Count - Body Count (hell yeah, a self titled debut album! ;) Sadly, "Copkiller" isn't on this version of the album)
Eagles of Death Metal - Death by sexy (You can never go wrong with Josh Homme!)
Pestilence - Consuming Impulse )You can never go wrong with Martin van Drunen!)

Interesting point of view. I say, they are always lazy. :P

But Rick Rubin looks a lot like Richard Stallman. Even though Rick looks like he would shower more often.

Alright level, but I think I liked the last one better.

Partially because I've already had this level before.

Yeah, but I still can't help but be excited for it. I mean, Black Sabbath is legendary -if they're putting out new music, I'll be more than happy to listen. (Even if it doesn't compare to the old stuff...)

And I thought it was hell in 2008. It didn't look so bad then. Now it's five years on and we're still in hell. I guess hell is eternal.

I was doing pretty good in 2008, hell I was employed!

Tell me how it is, Bahamut! It just hardens my resolve to keep depositing! :P

Hey, I had that one, too. :P My theory is that all the decent-looking icons are ones that were ripped from the previous design. The rest are comical or just plain lame. :\
