  • deathofasalesman That's riiiiiiight. Okay I was confused.

  • Satellite haha awesome man. was it as bad as i made it seem?
    January 6 08:52 PM
  • Satellite yeah dude, i gained like 20 lbs. i was skinny as s*** before and i run a lot now, though. i was having wicked panic attacks and paxil definitely helped, but i'm still not convinced that it didn't do more harm than good.
    November 24 01:19 AM
  • Satellite they cut my dosage in half, then i went every other day. cold turkey would ****ing suck even more dude.

  • CrackTheSkye Don't fret about your pre-order being a waste. This is just as good if not better than Somewhere...
    September 22 02:01 PM
  • CrackTheSkye Will do. Half way through, s*** rules so far.
    September 22 11:54 AM
  • CrackTheSkye Ah, that sucks, man. Will be worth the wait though.
    September 22 11:41 AM
  • CrackTheSkye No problem. Sounds good so far.
    September 22 11:36 AM

    August 3 01:03 AM
  • Deviant. Scuba - Triangulation, Distance - My Demons, Clubroot (both his self titled and II-MMX), Pinch - Underwater Dancehall, Zomby - Dedication (the comparison is a stretch but it's just a great album, so...) Digital Mystikz - Return II Space and Urban Ethics (2 EPs that when put together make an album) and Desolate - The Invisible Insurrection (not actual dubstep, it's more just lo-fi/idm but production wise he copies Burial to a tee)
    July 24 11:18 PM
  • Deviant. Glad to hear you're liking it man. You should definitely check his other stuff out, but Untrue is still his best work. I can give you some similar artists if you like
    July 24 10:18 PM
  • Maniac! Sounds fine to me
    July 17 08:31 AM
  • Jom Well, I teach now, but private practice would be wonderful and then move to a uni to teach cour$e$ there. I know that $ometime$ people will $ay how it'$ not about thing$ like the money but for the greater good or whatever... well, I would definitely feel pretty ****ing $pectacular if I had a fatter $tack of ca$h than I do currently... hahaha. You?
    July 13 05:27 PM
  • Jom I already did my undergrad, so now I'm doing all my stuff to preface the research, thesis, and dissertation for private practice. A lot of time and money going down the drain now, but hopefully it pays for itself later, ya know? Tuition isn't as bad here as I thought it would be, but I'm still learning the exchange rate.
    July 13 01:40 PM
  • Jom Ah, you know, bulls***'s bulls***, we all have to deal with it. It's not so much the work that's the problem, it's getting blasted in the ass paying the graduate tuition fee after the uni accepted an 8.9% tuition spike. It's been nice with no kids for the past month... it was a weird year, the ****ing useless:nice kid ratio felt like 15:1 this year.
    July 13 02:25 AM
  • Jom Oh, I don't actually have one, but when there was that blog post back in the day about people who Tumble I clicked and laughed and read a couple pages when I'm stressed out about work, work, and work. And other life things. But mostly work. Ha! Thanks again, dude!
    July 13 01:46 AM
  • Jom Ahhhhhhhhhhh yes, there it is. Personally, I liked the old style you had with the header and it being up-down, but this is best. Thanks, dude!
    July 13 01:23 AM
  • Jom The one about you being the third revelation, you sexy thang.
    July 13 12:55 AM
  • Jom Hey dude, I don't know if you're still around, but I'm kinda devastated youd your Tumblr... it always made my day when I was having a s***ty one. Or maybe you changed names? Either way, please let me know if/when you see this. Thanks, dude! Hope all is well in the meantime.
    July 12 11:21 PM
  • BigHans Sinatra is more of a greatest hits kind of guy. Look for something that has like 40-50 of what is considered his best tunes, can't go wrong. In The Wee Small Hours is a great "album."
    July 11 09:42 AM
  • Hawks Good s*** man!
    July 9 10:58 PM
  • Maniac! That would be great.

    February 15 01:19 AM

    February 15 01:15 AM
  • DaveyBoy So whats your thoughts on the newie. Gonna be a 3.5 for me. 4 great songs, 3 good ones and 3 that are just ok.
    February 14 11:45 PM

    December 9 05:30 PM
  • SowingSeason haha nothing too special, at least that i am aware of. if anything sometimes i worry i rate albums too fast. it doesn't happen all the time, but every now and then my opinion of an album will drastically change a few weeks or months after i already reviewed it, then im just like oh well too late
    December 8 08:26 PM
  • SowingSeason until i think i have an accurate read on it. also depends on the genre and how comfortable i am with it. on average i give it an initial run through not even thinking about the review, where i just kind of let the music happen to me. then the second time i sit at my computer as i listen and jot down some general throughts. then i put it together into a review, which may or may not require additional listens. why do you ask?
    December 8 06:41 PM
  • Mordecai. i like to think their is a bit of triforce in all of us
    December 8 06:09 PM
  • SowingSeason thanks slum, keep up the good work yourself!
    December 4 09:25 PM
  • chambered89 it just hit me one night i kinda stopped looking for something profound in the music and just let the lyrics wash over me and boom it completely affected me in every facet thhat music can
    November 23 12:12 PM
  • SowingSeason for sure...im not sure how it makes me feel. it's like i want to be angry with the music but it is too fun to sing along with to be angry haha
    November 22 12:52 AM
  • SowingSeason it doesn't strike me as angry music though
    November 21 07:25 PM
  • SowingSeason i havent made up my mind yet on the rating...its so different from what im used to, so that alone elevated it...the guys vocals are kind of gruff for my taste but it is growing on me...the opening song, closing song, and a pot in which to piss are all phenomenal.
    November 21 04:17 PM

    September 10 08:13 PM
  • SeaAnemone I actually haven't yet, ugh, I have had so little time to listen to music, but I'll be getting a TON more time to do so soon, so I just made a note of it (literally) and I'll try to remember to say something on your review after I do!

  • SeaAnemone haha yeah I realized that 99% of my time was spent working/running/eating/sleeping/being with my gf and if I didn't get rid of that 1% that was my writing/Sputnik time my head was gonna explode. and yeah, take it easy man... ps I have a review up now if you're interested! :)
    July 17 01:31 AM
  • SeaAnemone unrelated note: I still really need to listen to that band like I Can Make A Mess.. or whatever
    July 17 01:24 AM
  • SeaAnemone was away from the site for 2 weeks or so, goin on a little reviewing spree this weekend like 3 maybe... then I'll be away for like 2 weeks. I won't be round here much til the fall, workin full time/trainings really kickin in for cross country/beach... summer stuff too. oh well,

    July 15 08:06 PM
  • Deviant. No probs man, I can add more in the future if you would like me too
    July 13 11:52 PM
  • MUNGOLOID lol yeah i knew right from the trailers that he would be an evil prick.
    July 12 09:56 PM
  • MUNGOLOID agree and it did show how close the toys were as a family than any other scene in any other toy story ever did before.
    July 12 09:46 PM
  • MUNGOLOID i heard some people complaining how the fire pit scene could be a little too intense for some kids. one even compared it to the holocaust.
    July 12 09:28 PM
  • MUNGOLOID i'm really having a hard time right now if it is better or not. i'm going to have to see it again but i will easily say that it was the most emotional of the three.
    July 12 08:33 PM
  • MUNGOLOID finally saw toy story 3. yeah, it freaking owned.

    June 24 06:06 PM
  • MUNGOLOID definitely. the action in pixar flicks have had major improvements.
    June 21 11:42 PM
  • MUNGOLOID idk. i never bothered to check it out either and even tried watching it once but just never got into it. i still think that The Incredibles deserves a sequel more than any other pixar movie.
    June 21 11:34 PM
  • MUNGOLOID real good to hear that and the overall reception of it. it's still lame that cars is getting a sequel though.
    June 21 11:28 PM
  • MUNGOLOID nah not yet but i need to get on that asap! i'm trying to go sometime this week by the least.
    June 21 11:24 PM
  • Bulldog i might end up doing both, really. the reaction to a 2.5 recovery would be interesting, and as for a concept review, i was thinking from like the point of view of eminem's psychiatrist or therapist or somebody who was studying his mind in some way or another
    June 18 12:41 AM
  • Bulldog Im thinking an Eminem release. Maybe a 2.5 review for Recovery, or a concept review for SSLP or MMLP

    June 8 10:43 PM
  • SeaAnemone I have a few ideas actually-- one is a concept review for a classic of mine, another is a 4.5 review for my fav soundtrack of all-time (not on the site yet), or I have a third idea that's considerably more creative/ambitious but might turn out horribly. haha im full of ideas

    April 12 11:26 AM
  • SeaAnemone ... crux of the argument. This applies when you're talking about the lyrics, his voice, and most notably the instrumentation, and I think that's why there's (too) many negs.Also, don't use vocab that's above you. That's not meant as an insult, but your writing seemed unnatural, and some simple reviews can still be very well-done. You chose one of the hardest albums on the site to review, I think, and that also contributes the partially negative reaction. Anyway, hope this helps!
    March 10 07:22 PM
  • SeaAnemone I saw you asking for a critique on your latest review and I really enjoyed some of your previous but for whatever reason this one wasn't quite up to par... let's see...little logical thing that may bother people, you didn't "witness" greatness you heard itgrammatical: don't capitalize the words after :'s or ;'s now we get to the biggest problem, rather than saying "this is the greatest, and I don't quite understand why," an album (yes even ITAOTS) review requires that you explain why, the
