i have no idea what this is about. missed some stuff due to being in jail from april 30th to june 22nd.
The article I linked explains it pretty well. I'm glad you're out of jail. Hopefully you can get help and stay out and stay clean.

Our baby has been home since Tuesday night and she's doing really well. We had a really hard time getting the doctor to discharge Adelie but we took her to the pediatrician the day after and she's doing great.

Adelie Rose is very good. 5 lbs 14 oz, 19 inches. She's 3 weeks early but I'm very glad she's here. I think everything is okay with her unless something comes up (fingers crossed nothing comes up). Amanda is doing better and is on the mend. We finally got to go to the post partum room and she doesn't have any IVs anymore. Hopefully releases on Monday but probably no later than Tuesday. It felt so strange going out into stores and driving around after essentially being in one room since Wednesday night. I hope Amanda recovers well and Adelie stays on course.

Are they worried about pre-eclampsia? Was there protein in her urine?
Let me know if you have any questions during the induction! It can be a long process, especially early.
Yes to both. That's  exactly what they were worried about. It definitely seems like it's going to take a while before stuff really starts happening. They think Adelie will be fine.

Well Amanda went in after hurting her arm and after checking her urine, blood pressure, etc. they decided to induce her tomorrow morning at 8 AM. I am so nervous as it's about 3 weeks early and feel completely unprepared. I'm so stressed out but am trying to act like everything is cool with me so I don't stress Amanda out. I feel so bad for her, she has a torn ligament in her arm and is giving birth tomorrow morning. We are chilling out in the hospital. Small chance she gives birth tonight but most likely not until tomorrow after 8. Holy shit.

I watched a few newer releases on blu ray this month. Moonlight was a pretty good movie, though I thought it could have been longer so it could have covered more ground and developed the character better from teenager to adult. I noticed after watching that this may be the only movie I've ever seen that did not have any white people in it. Correct me if I'm wrong on that.

Manchester by the Sea was pretty depressing but good. I thought Casey Affleck was good in it and probably deserved best actor. I know it came out that he's a garbage human being but good movie which leads me to Birth of a Nation which was also good and along with Nate Parker should have nominated for more awards but get this, he too may be a garbage human being. I'm not sure why these (recent?) revelations about actors/directors didn't harm Affleck as much as Parker (okay I am sure but we won't go into it now).

I watched True Romance for the first time all the way through and it is amazing! One of my favorite movies now. I have no idea why I never watched it when I was a teenager.

Really, somebody else buying it wouldn't be such a bad deal necessarily.  It's not like a lot is getting done with the label as it is now.  There is a ton of classic material on PiX that is criminally out of print.  Hell, just put digital copies of everything up on bandcamp to make it accessible.
Some PIX stuff is on Apple Music. I'd have to research to see how much of it is there.

EDIT: It's pretty sparse. They have a few albums but overall they don't have a lot. I did just add some Operation Cliff Calvin to my library. I wish I hadn't have lost my CDs that came with the little booklet and had all of their songs. I can't remember what it was called.

It's a joke that he is hoping someone calls his bluff on.

I'd buy it for $10k though, like he always said, if it ain't cheap it ain't punk.
What would you do with it if you bought it?

This seems a little steep. I'd go in if it was a little lower (a lot lower actually). Where did you see that it was for sale? What would we get if we bought Plan It X other than the rights to distribute/license the songs on the label and use the name? I'd like to know what all we would have the rights to if we bought Plan It X. It seems very unlikely that this is really a thing.

General / Re: Top 5 grunge bands
« on: May 25, 2017, 05:35:11 PM »
yeah other than nirvana i guess, grunge is kind of bad.
You know Jer, I thought I would get more support from someone else over 30. You never owned a Soundgarden shirt? Weren't into Alice In Chains?

Here's the most grungiest video in the history of grunge and a tribute to the great Chris Cornell. He had one of the best voices in rock history.

I will say that any grunge recorded after 1996 is terrible and do not approve of bands who derive their sound from pre '96

General / Top 5 grunge bands
« on: May 24, 2017, 05:04:40 PM »
So I was watching top 10 lists on YouTube and they gave their top 10 greatest grunge bands. Now I'm not delusional enough to actually think there are 10 great grunge bands to begin with but there are 5 and I thought the order was more or less pretty good.

This is what they had for their top 5 and I think I agree if the emphasis is on grunge. If we are just ranking these 5 based on which of them is best I believe I'd flip Alice In Chains and Soungarden.

5. Stone Temple Pilots
4. Soundgarden
3. Pearl Jam
2. Alice In Chains
1. Nirvana

I'm not a big fan of PWR BTTM but assuming the allegations against Ben are true, it's pretty insidious and terrible to gain entry into and trust of a group by saying the right things and purporting to believe the same things as other members of the group. Very sad for all involved.

So what's the actual definition of sluttering? I've see several and don't know what the consensus is. I know he says it in the song but it's still not clear what exactly he's talking about.

Happy Jawbreaker Day, nonetheless. We're almost to Lagwagon Day. You'd think they'd stretch these punk rock holidays out a little.

I had been looking for their album and luckily Apple Music had it. Good album.

Better Call Saul keeps getting better. I missed last weeks episode so I had to catch up last night. It was nice being able to watch these episodes back to back. It feels like the Gus/Mike storylines are slightly overpowering Jimmy's but it isn't that bad. I'm still interested and invested in Jimmy's story and feel like both are great and are coexisting pretty well.

I just saw Split and it was alright. I thought the ending was neat and was unaware of future plans prior to seeing it. I hope that's not a spoiler. I find it interesting that M. Night Samalamadingdong seems to place such an emphasis on mental illness and therapists/psychologists in his movies.

i thought in general no one liked the decline? i'm out of touch. Punk in Drublic is obviously the best.
I though it was viewed as a classic but I'm out of touch, too. 3) So Long.. 4) Heavy Petting Zoo 5) Coaster
I'm not counting the Decline since it's just one song. Coaster is the surprise on the list but I enjoy it more than Ribbed

I was thinking of best Screeching Weasel albums. 1) My Brain Hurts 2) Anthem for a New Tomorrow 3) Boogada Boogada Boogada 4) Wiggle 5) Television City Dream tied with Emo. I couldn't leave Emo off after giving it a quick listen. Even though it's not as catchy, the lyrics are better than TCD.

speaking of NOFX, is anyone else a Decline fan? any does anyone wanna list their top 5 NOFX albums if you dig em?

1) Punk in Drublic
2) So long and thanks for the Shoes
3) White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean
4) Ripped
5) Pump up the Valuum


i've also been really into Thee Temple Ov Pyschik Youth which was founded by Genesis P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle which was an extremely interesting and inspiration esoteric and occult movement in the UK.. anyhow it's not about that, it's about the band's that were connected with it and the brilliant music they produced (well i find it brilliant. it might just be absurd noise to you but listen to it and it will force it's way into your subconscious and then there's no escaping it once you've been intellectually inseminated..

I used to be a huge NOFX fan but have cooled on them as I've gotten older. I believe even those who aren't really feeling NOFX like the Decline. I'll have to think about my top 5 but 1 and 2 are definitely 1. Punk in Drublic and 2. White Trash...

I am really enjoying the new season of Better Call Saul. If this season keeps going on the same track, it will be the best one yet in my opinion. I don't really have a desire to rewatch old episodes unlike Breaking Bad which I could watch any day. There are certain shows that I like to rewatch and some I don't. As great is the Wire was, I never went back and rewatched episodes.

they're playing Riot Fest, but nothing else has been announced.
Dang just looked at the line-up for this year's RF. That's quite the list of heavy hitters.
I wish I was a young man and I'd go though it's weird because the main attractions would be more exciting for people around my age.

NOFX's covers are stronger than Rancid's in my opinion with Corazon de Oro being the best.
