  • AnimalsAsSummit will do son
    March 3 10:46 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit Haha no u gud bruh. I look forward to it! I got a quick snippet of some of the finished new material on the soundoff I did for the album. If u wanna hear the clip, the album is Jaded Claws and Glistening Outmodes by King Green. Its only 15 seconds from a 90 minute ordeal so it shouldn't spoil much for u at all :
    March 3 10:48 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit its totally cools man. don't feel bad haha; i truly understand, u can be sure of that :) btw i picked march 25th as the release so not too much longer before the chains come off this bad boy

  • ScuroFantasma Hey Capt. Just wondering is there's any rough estimate on when you might release Episode 2? Really enjoyed the first Ep so I'm eager for the next (:

    February 4 01:54 PM
  • DarkNoctus thanks bud! the album is finished and release should be in a few weeks, can't wait to share!
    February 2 02:43 PM
  • JamieTwort Listened to a song from that Sean McCann album, loved it and ordered the album on vinyl.
    January 31 02:52 PM
  • DarkNoctus :]
    January 31 11:23 AM
  • JamieTwort Will do, thanks for the rec bro.
    January 26 05:07 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit probably in time for a late march or early april release (hopefully)
    January 23 01:05 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit basically to where the ambience fades out (i think it's just to the end of that clip), I have the other sections of that song that come in after in another file
    January 23 12:48 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit any luck with the link to that mp3?
    January 23 11:15 AM
  • JamieTwort Glad I'm not the only one that didn't like that album, it seems to be getting a surprising amount of love. Nice bro, me to as always haha.
    January 21 04:58 PM
  • JamieTwort Cap bro, you never commented on my 2014 list :[ Loads of stuff on there I'm sure you'd dig.
    January 21 11:47 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit sounds good, lemme know if it works forya
    January 20 12:28 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit here's the unfinished track; the ambience at around 1:45 is where i'll place the solo. you can pretty much do whatever you want stylistically over it. when you're done i guess u can just send the mp3 my way and i'll work it in :)link -
    January 20 08:45 AM
  • AnimalsAsSummit once i get these drums done on this work-in-progress track, i'll send it your way. probably some time tomorrow. i'm really pumped ur down to contribute on this release bro, its my most personal. i'll put the unfinished track on dropbox tmmrw for u 2 dl. here's a finished song to give you an idea of the thing -
    January 19 07:23 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit any chance you'd want to guest solo on new king green? putting an album out in the spring; its very freeform in nature. obviously i'd give you all the credit for your work on it. i can send u the unfinished tracks/ solo areas if need be, of course ;)

    January 12 12:54 AM
  • pedro70512 lists Trvth as a similar artist to Taravana. It's meant to be.
    January 11 11:21 PM
  • SnakeDelilah why'd you get yr comments wiped?

  • ButteryBiscuitBass Hey cap, check my song if you'd be so kind:
    November 4 07:27 AM
  • Jacquibim cause i could be listening to something way better
    October 29 11:23 AM
  • JamieTwort Sup bro, check out the review I just posted: I think you might like the album and it's available for free download on bandcamp. It's a project by a friend of mine.
    October 23 10:07 AM
  • Jacquibim aww man rip
    October 23 09:49 AM
  • Dolving999 Wow bro thanks, that means a lot coming from a well-established sputnik talent like you!
    October 23 07:55 AM
  • VisionsFromTheDarkSide You da man Cap, what stuff from 2014 you been digging most then?
    October 22 12:46 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Aye, that's true. Have fun with those 4 Gackt albums, I don't recommend the others :]
    October 21 04:47 PM
  • Shuyin havent seen it tbh, doesnt look like something id enjoy. besides, i had my share of swordplay/ fantasy anime after watching the berserk movies
    October 21 11:40 AM
  • Funeralopolis Thanks man, yea vocals are the only instrument I play. I've been doing screaming for a long time and have recently started trying to learn to clean sing. Unfortunately cus I live in a tiny thin walled apartment I can't really scream and I don't regularly practice anymore so my highs have noticeably slipped the most from their once quality of trvth.
    October 16 05:17 PM
  • OmairSh CaptaindooooooooooooooooooooooooNowrong
    October 16 10:30 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I'm pretty sure I got him into them with my Animal Mother review
    October 13 10:02 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges That attitude will get your far in life, my friend. Can't wait until Episode 2.
    October 12 05:48 AM
  • PortalofPerfection The fact that they're so nice and so responsive to their fans and to me is definitely a contributing factor to my obsession with them lol. Anyway, sorry for the rant, will see you out of the review comments.
    October 12 02:45 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges No problem, man. Love your music, so why not give it the attention it deserves?
    October 11 10:45 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dood, you want some great atmospheric BM? Check out Walknut. So good.
    October 10 10:18 PM
  • KjSwantko Damn Cap, that was a sweet with Harakiri for the Sky. You know my tastes bro! It was some sweet melodic doomy BM but still had plenty of regular metal tendencies. I thought the first half of the record was amazing (easy 4.5) but the second half wasn't nearly as intense. Overall still the best rec I've gotten in a while m/
    October 10 07:03 PM
  • evilford nice dark millennium ratings cappy
    October 9 11:36 AM
  • osmark86 thanks a bunch man, well appreciated compliments. of course I'll keep youd, you're one of me favourite sputbros.
    October 8 05:33 PM
  • osmark86 yeah, 100% me in my dusty ol' apartment. glad you dig it mate. ^^
    October 8 05:07 PM
  • Atari although i gotta say, it does drag quite a bit in spots. still a good album tho
    October 8 01:32 PM
  • Atari that Bruma album is definitely cool man. Apparentely I like the combination of black metal and shoegaze even though i know next to nothing about shoegaze lol.
    October 8 12:41 PM
  • Jacquibim I haven't listened to it yet, but I can imagine it's pretty damn good. Predicting a 3.5-4 based on the singles.
    October 7 04:51 PM
  • Jacquibim return of the cockatiel
    October 7 04:39 PM
  • Jacquibim faith
    October 7 04:36 PM
  • osmark86 sure as hell is the best hobby there is. when I'm done with 3-4 more black metal/doom songs I'm putting together an album. will defo want your opinion on it.

  • gagnonov
    October 1 04:22 PM
  • OmairSh Sorry for the delay. I checked your track once, and I really liked it man. Got some great melodies, and I enjoyed the acoustic bridge and transition. Gave the feeling of being in a forest. Coo stuff man, what can't you do Cap
    September 30 09:50 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey dude I liked your track :]
    September 30 12:13 PM
  • Deathbeds Listening to Black Horse Plague now!
    September 30 10:57 AM
  • Deathbeds I will tonight actually! :)
    September 29 07:58 AM
  • DarkNoctus thank you thank you! i hope my advice is useful. and yes, yes i do! got a black metal record, the follow up to my first coming up and then the of solitude and solemn album!
    September 28 08:40 PM
  • Voivod Well I'm not a musician, so I'm not entirely sure. But I have consumed '90s prog metal by the ton, and to be honest, I'm not too keen in listening to 10-20-minute prog songs these days, but that's just me. At the end of the day, you should ignore every opinion out there and shape your music the way you want to, in order to be 100% happy with the result.
    September 28 01:55 AM
  • Voivod Heard the track twice, I liked it, but see if you can shorted the duration of the track without losing in essence. That's just me, though.
    September 27 06:23 PM
  • ChoccyPhilly I thought your track was solid and I don't think I can give you any feedback that hasn't already been said, but I'll try. I thought that the drum work could be a bit more varied; for a prog song, it seemed a bit too monotonous. I also thought that the quiet section could have used some ambient textures to beefen up the atmosphere a bit or even add a field recording - would have made it a lot more peaceful and powerful. Other than that, i think everything's been said.
    September 27 03:35 PM
  • Relinquished if u put in the work and spread your material more maybe u can land on help
    September 27 01:47 PM
  • pedro70512 Cool, I'll give it a close listen this afternoon. And don't tell anyone, but I don't actually axe. The new Taravana stuff is all done on my keyboard :P
    September 27 12:18 PM
  • Shuyin yea, i can see how that works specially since you dig going for new experimental stuff. im still trying to find my own sound, im really happy when someone tells me that i have a distinct style. now i just gotta make it sound good while keeping the identity of each track unique. fun thing about music is that, its like space exploration! even when you think youve got it all down, theres always so much to learn and improve.. and knowing that theres so much to explore makes it bittersweet
    September 27 10:47 AM
  • DarkNoctus i liked the prominent bass too. work on the placement of cymbals because it's where a lot of impact comes from and you want them at the most impactful parts, like where the drums first come in. rethink the acoustics as i just don't think they worked. good work though! [:
    September 27 10:24 AM
  • DarkNoctus i will be as honest as possible but don't fret, i did like it overall! [: i liked the melodic leads guitar, shame they sounded too mechanical. placement of the cymbals felt a little off at times. i didn't feel like the acoustic section added anything at all and even though it was nicely composed it didn't match the rest of it. we suddenly went from what sounded like melodic death metal instrumentation to acoustics and it just felt very forced.
    September 27 10:23 AM
  • beefshoes Thanks man, and yeah, I made downloading an option on bandcamp!I think Chill of November was when I was finally getting the hang of mixing and cohesive songwriting, but I definitely agree with you on the drums, My favorite track on there is probably Bare en Aande , but I mixed the vocals incredibly low on it for some reason. It irks me so much because I slaved over the instrumentation. aha I'm glad you dug it though. Do you have a bandcamp account?
    September 27 09:32 AM
  • DecayingMajesty Good stuff man :)
    September 27 03:18 AM
  • bach nice job with the new track man. v cool stuff
    September 26 11:09 PM
  • Shuyin will do, thanks man. wont be posting anything for awhile since ive also burned out of fresh ideas and tbh i dont wanna be rehashing the same stuff
    September 26 10:27 PM
  • Wizard When I get a moment, I will definitely rip it to shreds ; )
    September 26 10:17 PM
  • BMDrummer aight shweet, look forward to hearing all 3!
    September 26 09:55 PM
  • BMDrummer no problem man, love helping others out with music they make. if this means another release soon, i'll be waiting happily :]
    September 26 09:48 PM
  • BMDrummer oh yeah man no problem, i just mean that they sound a little hollow and lack resonance. i'm not saying you need reverb or anything, it just sounds pretty treble-y, like it doesn't breathe.
    September 26 09:41 PM
  • BMDrummer mainly the drums, which sounded a little cold in the recording. other than that most of it seemed pretty good
    September 26 09:37 PM
  • BMDrummer great work as always cap, the transition was very nice and the guitar work was excellent for the whole song. very proggy and bm influenced of course, but i would favor better production since it seems like it kind of lacks a bit of that punch. all in all though, it's definitely a great song
    September 26 09:01 PM
  • beefshoes Cool, and thank you as well!Btw, if you listened to the upper most song, that was from 2010. I actually did two newer tracks that are grouped together in a different playlist. They are a lot more Ulver/Bathory influenced as opposed to the 2010 material.
    September 26 08:42 PM
  • Shuyin thanks man, its gonna be a tough moment but one must man it up. and thanks for checking the track, it means allot. i actually had the project of the final version with improved drums but it was saved on a hard drive that crashed. i only have this mp3 file now ahahah cheers!
    September 26 08:38 PM
  • Relinquished nothing blatantly egregious I could point out bro, I keep imagining how much awesome and better that could sound in a professional studio (obviously of course). great track overall, a little simple for my taste but I like how it's just progressive metal and the touches of bm influence are there.
    September 26 08:36 PM
  • beefshoes I enjoyed it, and I followed your account (Nordlig Komfort). The musicianship is really awesome, and I'm really digging the bass being as high as it is in the mix. If I could offer any constructive criticism, it'd be to raise the volume of the guitars in some areas. Towards the start of the track, it feels as if they're being drowned out by everything else that's going on. Maybe a bit more reverb on the snare drum to give it a bigger sound? Other than that, great effort :D
    September 26 08:12 PM
  • Funeralopolis I don't mind your harsh vocals they're much better than your cleans. I'm sure the album would be fine instrumental anyways it definitely has enough going on to merit it.
    September 26 08:12 PM
  • oltnabrick 5/5
    September 26 08:10 PM
  • Futures of course man big fan of your work!
    September 26 08:06 PM
  • Futures awesome man. in my opinion i think vocals would fit the track very well.
    September 26 08:04 PM
  • Funeralopolis I think it could possibly use some vocals but I'm gonna be perfectly honest with you here and say I honestly don't really like your vocals much at all for the most part but you definitely have quite a talent when it comes to instrumentation. I would almost recommend you teaming up with a vocalist, but even as an instrumental it would be fine.
    September 26 07:52 PM
  • Frippertronics nice track, really not digging the drums though (i'm guessing they're programmed?)
    September 26 07:51 PM
  • Futures really loved that man. the mid section and the acoustic part especially! is this going to be on a new release?
    September 26 07:49 PM
  • Shuyin im sorry, im doing therapy right now. same old ears s***.. dont know when ill be jamming. can i leave you one of mine? i know the drums are clumsy, long story, but i think youll dig the full thing
    September 26 07:48 PM
  • YakNips bruuhhhhh pretty sweet, i wanna hear it with real instruments tho!! or at least guitar. i rlly like it thooo, lots of cool stuff going on
    September 26 07:46 PM
  • Funeralopolis Killer track, are those 3 new songs you released going to be on an album? This is some of your best stuff yet. Its Height is still my favourite because I love the hell out of the bass on it, but I'd rank them: Its Height, Orgasm Forest, Flame. All rock doe.
    September 26 07:44 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Gotcha.
    September 26 07:36 PM
  • AaronIsCrunchy Haha, oh jeez that song title!The track sounds fantastic. Hope it doesn't sound like I'm detracting from the first half as I did like that, but the second half of the song (i.e. 3:14 on, you know the bit!) sounds absolutely fantastic. Got the amount of repeats played before a variation more or less spot on. How long did it take you to write?
    September 26 07:28 PM
  • Mongi123 Good track dude!
    September 26 07:28 PM
  • Judio! sweet will check soon
    September 26 07:22 PM

  • evilford sounds awesome, no matter where you end up in life there's always something good about a good old fashioned family vacay
    September 26 03:50 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit can you access bandcamp at all? their albums are on there for free dl i believe
    September 26 03:39 PM
  • evilford and CA to NY damn that's a hell of a trip, was it a good trip
    September 26 02:16 PM
  • evilford it's quiet but I like it. how about you how's CA? what part of CA do you live in?
    September 26 02:16 PM
  • evilford hahaha. I live in Iowa. you live in CA right?
    September 26 01:54 PM
  • evilford nah man none of my friends like metal. it sucks haha. it's alright tho I love my friends, just wish we shared some musical taste. but no generally we go hang out at bars or go to movies or just hang out at our house and drink and play board games and stuff lol. we're boring old people...that's cool you're getting together w/ your old bassist to jam, sounds like a good time :]
    September 26 01:37 PM
  • Jacquibim it's a show anyways i think i'm gonna log out for a few days and when i return i will have a masterpiece for you bye bye
    September 26 12:30 PM

  • Jacquibim got something cool envisioned lots of flowers n feathers n vines n beams of light n s***'s gonna be mint yo m/
    September 26 12:03 PM
  • theNateman No problem about the feedback! You're a talented musician, and I cant wait to see how you progress!
    September 25 07:30 PM
  • pedro70512 Clear is good with the style you've been using lately. Or styles. I'm playing around with mixing and production myself on AVC and it's coming out nicely so far. I've found that using a low-pass filter seems to eliminate unwanted clicks and hiss from the tracks, for instance. Yeah man your instrumental stuff is nice. I can't pin down your clean vocals...they're not bad but they didn't quite work for me at times on the last album. I need to spin Black Horse again, speaking of that album...
    September 25 10:22 AM
  • pedro70512 I liked the song a lot. You've got a distinct production style that emphasizes clear and bassy sounds in the center while everything else floats around it. It's cool. Will you add vox or is it just instrumental?
    September 25 09:58 AM
  • Jacquibim sweeee
    September 24 01:00 PM
  • Jacquibim I'll try to get it done in a week from now, sound good?
    September 24 12:41 PM
  • Jacquibim I WILL get it done man, and I promise it'll be 10 times better than the first pic. I've just had a difficult time finding motivation for anything for various reasons. Sorry to keep you waiting D:
    September 24 12:17 PM
  • Deathbeds Heliogabalus is so good. Thanks for telling me about it!
    September 23 07:30 PM
  • pedro70512 aight thanks. hope you have fun whew wherever you're headed
    September 20 06:25 AM
  • pedro70512 just posted the guitar tracks for another song. they need to be equalized and smoothed out tone-wise but it's a good framework. any thoughts?
    September 19 11:32 AM
  • Wolfhorde No need to apologize, I didn't even get out of Florida anyway. I'm into good beer or good booze in general, I like interesting pubs/pubs with good food/booze/interesting people. Obviously music is also a thing, meeting cool people, bonfires, barbecue. Stuff like that. I also like sports and fitness.
    September 17 06:21 PM
  • Wolfhorde Also, I'd appreciate any recs on stuff in the U.S. or Cali to check out. I mean it'll probably be a while before I hit the U.S. up again since I gotta explore my European neighbors a bit more (and finances and planning, obviously) but I do plan to see some more at some point.
    September 17 05:51 PM
  • Wolfhorde Yeah, it's honestly not that easy to condense iall that stuff down to some shoutbox posts with somewhat narrow character limit. That's why when I write letters they're usually at least 3 pages. And I mean what I put in there was just some stuff I picked, there's more and probably even more I couldn't even think of right now. There's just way too much to life.
    September 17 05:45 PM
  • Wolfhorde as to its necessity bar the tax benefits. I don't necessarily see why a particular - somewhat religiously connotated - "symbol" or "ritual" is necessary in a relationship or what purpose it serves. Also, now you have why I prefer other platforms for communication. I can be very verbal.
    September 17 05:26 PM
  • Wolfhorde As for plans to marry and have kids holy ballsacks, no. I'm 21 and I've got other s*** on my "to do" list which includes finishing uni, getting to know a lot more different cultures/lots of travelling and trying various activities, getting a good career path going and meeting various kinds of people from said cultures. Every here and then also visiting friends (that are all over the globe). You mean civil marriage? Mhm, maybe at some point. Although I'm a bit skeptical regarding the institution
    September 17 05:24 PM
  • Wolfhorde another one of those just generally interesting and "good to know" things that make understanding certain processes and backgrounds a lot easier. Plus you have a certain congurence with stuff like history, SoSci and geography. Music and architecture because of aesthetics, different interpretations and concepts of those and how they developed.
    September 17 05:22 PM
  • Wolfhorde interpretations of certain occurences and intentions and things like that. Idk, it's just incredibly fascinating. Historical continuity is also a very interesting concept. Plus history makes understanding culture easier. Law because it's an interesting and relatively flexible concept that is also quite intricate and can be used and interpreted in myriads of ways. Plus I believe that everyone should have a certain minimum legal expertise or be able to have access to legal expertise. Geography,

  • Wolfhorde although philosophy kind of penetrates everything so it has a relation to almost every other academic subject (from law to polisci to math). Social Studies just seems like a good set of general knowledge, history - again is good for making sense of how things are now and how they were. Also quite good for learning, i.e. learn from the mistakes of others. Plus it's just RIDICULOUSLY intricate. There's always another layer and the more information we have the more layers we get you get different
    September 17 05:19 PM
  • Wolfhorde As I have mentioned somewhere else, I'm starting law in uni relatively soon which is also why I'm (finally) moving (out of this godforsaken rural crater of boredom). Areas of education that are interesting? Mhm, social studies, history, psychology, philosophy, law, geography, architecture and music. Jesus, why are they interesting? Psychology because I like to know how people work in general and because it makes making sense of people's actions easier. Philosophy partially for the same reason

  • Wolfhorde The "third stage" would be a lack of both sexual drive and romantic feelings. Asexuality can also be quite confusing for people who are asexual as not everyone can just as easily categorize themselves with clear lines. If I'd have to take it apart I'd say generally the biggest three components are drive, pleasure and feelings and how they interact or not.
    September 17 05:09 PM
  • Wolfhorde When I have romantic feelings for someone it doesn't come with the drive to have sexual intercourse with that person. Although asexuality doesn't necessarily imply that asexual people don't have sex or pleasure themselves, they just don't have the same drive as most other people and often they don't derive the same enjoyment from it. But as with sexuality in general, asexuality is also more of a spectrum allthough it has mostly been categorized in stages.
    September 17 05:05 PM
  • Wolfhorde .. I think you can understand how disrespectful that is. Yes, I understand that but you can't just disassemble sexual orientation into some kind of "component parts" - it's not a machine, it's something comprehensive. Although to be entirely honest, I get the question of "why are you asexual?" a lot more which is often a lot more infuriating given the context with which that kind of question is often posed.
    September 17 04:57 PM
  • Wolfhorde Oh, I was almost certain you didn't have offensive intentions (although humans can be very erratic) - I was just pointing out that what you said may nevertheless have offensive implications. I'm not entirely certain what exactly you're referring to with the sentence regarding the offensive light and my response. I can admittedly get a bit offended at some people's sheer ignorance and their presumptuousness. I've had people attempt to tell me what sexuality I am in the past and all that stuff and
    September 17 04:54 PM
  • Wolfhorde Oh and your question seems kind of inaccurate. I'm bisexual, not gay. So you'd have to ask why I think I'm attracted to both genders.
    September 17 04:15 PM
  • Wolfhorde Although I have admittedly not been emotionally connected to my family by much since I was 13/14 so eh.
    September 17 04:12 PM
  • Wolfhorde Some of the most plausible hypotheses are evolutionary in which the idea is something along the lines of these things developed out of a specific context in which that was favorable to heterosexuality. As for me personally, my biological parents may have been divorced for a long time but I doubt it has anything to do with that. And while my stepfather had some violent tendencies, these feelings were present before he started acting on them.
    September 17 04:11 PM
  • Wolfhorde I'm sorry but what you just said had quite a few offensive implications. The notion that alternative sexualities have ANYTHING to do with psychological issues have been disproven various times (that kind of quasi-Freudian ideology is maybe something old conservative Germans buy into but come on) and any occurence of such in conjunction is pure coincidence. At this point we have absolutely no idea what "causes" some people to be bisexual, homosexual or asexual.
    September 17 04:08 PM
  • Wolfhorde Then, somehow contact just faded away and when I tried to contact her again via mail or skype or something I never really got any response.
    September 17 03:39 PM
  • Wolfhorde Not my kinda cup of tea. And as I said, I have ADD and it definitely shows up in my general attributes and behavior. I get bored easily, I need lots of versatile things to do, I have a ridiculous amount of energy and I have completely illogical mood swings that partially happen at random. Well, there were few factors. She was from Austria, so there was distance - she was also 17 at the time so she was really young and she just left her boyfriend as he was an abusive dickhead.
    September 17 03:38 PM
  • Wolfhorde Most people can't really guess that I'm not heterosexual since I don't really go out of my way to make it a statement or a defining part of my identity, I have always had these feelings - I was just pretty much in denial. As I said, this is a pretty traditional rural area. I didn't even know what homosexuality was until I befriended someone at the age of 15/16. Hey, that sounds like you're describing some of my former teachers, haha. Seriously though,
    September 17 03:33 PM
  • Wolfhorde Oh, and the other thing about the whole family thing is that I lost contact with one of my former best friends right about the time she started a family. I've also seen how some of that stuff can turn out which is not at all pretty.
    September 17 03:13 PM
  • Wolfhorde I'll probably abuse the university library at some point just to scour for some history books when I've got time to kill. Yeah, I'm relatively neutral, too. I kinda do have an opinion on things but I don't affiliate myself with any political ideology as I have a very academic view of things (it depends on the context and the specifics) and I'd rather stay out of it than support something just for the hell of it.
    September 17 03:09 PM
  • Wolfhorde Not just about the financial aspects (although they're considerable, too) but the general impact it will have on your life. I mean hell, I'm starting to study law. I won't be done before 27. And I've got plans, there's s*** to see and somesuch. I guess being a bisexual asexual with ADD also kinda changes the game a bit. (the impact of ADD on some general attributes can be vastly underrated) That sounds pretty swell, I love history - particularly digging really deep into the specifics.
    September 17 03:08 PM
  • Wolfhorde Also, I gotta be honest - I've seen some people in the age range I described having a family and I kinda find that to be a terrifying thought.
    September 17 02:51 PM
  • Wolfhorde I mean, of course it also depends on the area of the U.S. but in general people are more open to smalltalk with strangers and things of the like (unfortunately partially also to being much more superficial). Over here that kind of behavior is often viewed as "rude" or "creepy" because our notions of "being polite" or "respectful" implies keeping a certain distance until you get to know people better and since people in the service industry don't have to rely on tips the environment is different.
    September 17 02:50 PM
  • Wolfhorde Well, that's generally the case - that's why I usually use the word "tendency" because it implies that there is a general tendency but leaves room for a LOT of variation if you get down to it. Oh yeah, I'm very familiar with that - a lot of Americans have the same opinion of Germany and Scandinavian countries because we have very different ideas of "being polite" or "respectful".
    September 17 02:47 PM
  • Wolfhorde I mean the same goes for any other kind fo socio-political idea. What do you mean by "resourceful" with weed? I'm not entirely following what you meant when with your mum's quote and the people further up North. (also, isn't California traditionally very liberal/progressive?) You got upset at her opinion or people's behavior?
    September 17 02:30 PM
  • Wolfhorde Well, it depends on the definition of "conservative". I mean there's already a difference between our political conservative and your political conservative, then socially conservativism is an entirely different beast. A certain degree of conservatism certainly makes sense (conserving culture and traditions to the degree that they don't infringe upon anyone's rights or harm anyone, conserving certain principles/standards etc) - it always depends on the context.
    September 17 02:27 PM
  • Wolfhorde Admittedly, where I live you still have quite traditional societal tendencies (Palatinate was once a Bavarian province where rich aristocrats hung out in their spare time, Bavaria is also partially one of the most conservative places here) a so things that are out of the ordinary will at first be a bit of a "oh s***" moment.
    September 17 02:05 PM
  • Wolfhorde Yeah, Idk you just generally came off as a university students. Copious pot consumption, jamming on your guitar in your free time and somesuch and so on. Me neither, quite frankly I often find it insulting when people pull the "age" card because it's such an irrelevant attribute.
    September 17 02:04 PM
  • Wolfhorde Holy s***, I thought you were like 22-24 and didn't think you had a wife and kid.
    September 17 12:56 PM
  • Wolfhorde Idk what that has to do with anything unless that means you have a wife and kids.
    September 16 11:37 AM
  • Wolfhorde Since the former is out of the equation the closest latter option would be Skype. At least that's what I usually resort to.
    September 16 02:58 AM
  • ASnideReturns Well yeah, imagine how people felt when they figured out that the Earth revolved around the Sun instead of the other way around. "MOTHER OF ****, how did we not GET that."
    September 15 10:13 PM
  • ASnideReturns Didn't realize that so little was known about the mechanisms behind weather god damn.
    September 15 09:27 PM
  • Wolfhorde Also, it's close to midnight (which may also have slightly altered my perception) so I'm hitting the hay soon but we may be able to get something going tomorrow or something.
    September 15 05:49 PM
  • Wolfhorde Sputnik shoutboxes may not necessarily be the best places for that to be entirely honest. I prefer long-winded conversations on other platforms. In an ideal world all of them would be face to face with good booze and backgroundmusic to boot.
    September 15 05:45 PM
  • Wolfhorde I have zero idea what you're getting at. Are you just making random conversation because you're bored or are you being facetious?
    September 15 05:07 PM
  • Wolfhorde Are you high again? Oh wait.. is this one of the few times you're actually NOT high?
    September 15 04:48 PM
  • ASnideReturns s***, how much rain do you think we're gonna get?
    September 15 02:09 PM
  • ASnideReturns 28 inches well damn. What's the chances of that happening do you think?
    September 15 01:23 PM
  • ASnideReturns It's certainly gonna be interesting seeing what happens to California, Oregon definitely doesn't have any water problems lol
    September 15 01:03 PM
  • ASnideReturns God damn you can get fined for that?
    September 15 12:54 PM
  • ASnideReturns Dude here we haven't even had water cutbacks yet, or at least we haven't felt it. I've been hearing about all of these other cities getting hit by the drought though like damn man.
    September 15 11:31 AM
  • ASnideReturns That's why I can't stand California, I don't like heat at all and it's always ****ing summer here. It rarely rains. I've traveled to states and been in the snow during winter and such, but I really want to experience fall on the east coast at least once for a couple days (THE TREE COLORS BRO). Where in Oregon was your friend?
    September 15 11:20 AM
  • ASnideReturns That's true man, when me and my fiance have kids in the future we're probably gonna make our way up to Oregon (we love the rain and the climate there)
    September 15 11:11 AM
  • ASnideReturns Why Idaho man?
    September 15 10:31 AM
  • ASnideReturns Will do man! I'm still in Southern California, although I'm going further south (not quite to San Diego but within a half an hour driving distance)
    September 15 12:51 AM
  • ASnideReturns I'm pretty good man. Just working on getting an apartment, job hunting, the usual. How's your music been going?
    September 15 12:40 AM
  • ASnideReturns Long time no talk bro!
    September 15 12:28 AM
  • Jacquibim Ah no worries man, I promise I'll get it done soon :3
    September 14 07:29 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Did you dig the review? Anything you think needs work? I always like a bit of constructive criticism and metal is more your bag than mine
    September 13 05:18 PM
  • Jacquibim Sorry I didn't get the art started in time, I'm still gonna draw what you asked and maybe you can use it for a later release if you like?
    September 13 11:10 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, thank YOU, my friend, for continuing to create awesome stuff and supporting my passion for reviewing music.
    September 13 09:04 AM
  • Greyvy slowly working my way up ;)
    September 13 08:52 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges It is done.
    September 12 10:15 PM
  • pedro70512 eh, I decided to combine them because the player doesn't go straight through. js.
