  1. While I know the name Sleep, I’ve never listened to their stuff. Other than Boris I’m not the biggest fan of stoner metal, or weed culture, or weed. Not that I begrudge that do like it- many of my close friends smoke heavy and often. It’s just that every time I’ve ever been high has been completely miserable, and then every single blood relative elder male in my family died from either cancer or alcoholism, so I’ve kind of cut back my vice intake in general to see if it’s about booze intake/smoke inhalation or if we cash out at 56 Just Cuz. That got dark. Let’s listen to a stoner metal record. As per last time, one paragraph per song.
  2. I'm plotting on getting a 4K TV next year, and that's one of the three* games I'm going to use to like test it all out. The wait is going to hurt. *Thumper and Last of Us 2 (i lost a bet)
  3. There's a Steam halloween sale. One of the things on sale is Kentucky Route Zero for $12.50. I strongly recommend this course of action if only because when Act 5 comes out you'll get all the changes that come with the console version including pacing changes in a certain cave area that are definitely and extremely appreciated, as well as getting all of the between-act vignettes packed in. So, get it, wait til you see me screaming at the top of my lungs about Act 5 being out, then play it.
  4. Today was walk #2 and it was maybe the worst time I've had in public. Four separate people looked at me like "eww" and moved either to the other side of the bus or bus stop. (the fourth one was justified, we'll get to that) I filled 1/3rd of a test fully with educated guesses and left anxious about it. the walk across campus (half a mile each way on a torn ACL, bad hip, plantar fasciitis on one foot and a blood blister on the other) was excruciating when I made it to the bathroom after half-mile #2 (which is literally uphill the whole way), the toilet on campus broke and shot my own urine back up at me. thank god it was just urine. Screwface The 4th happened after this. let a troll get to me as soon as I got home, spent an hour mad at that after I iced my legs I called my PT office only to discover they're on strike all week. on the plus side, my score on the test came in early and I did better on this test than the last so fuckin whatever I guess
  5. and now for something completely different
  6. Last week was my first week walking to class in years. i made it! I walked a grand total of a mile and a half, with a day in between. I was then kind of non functional for a few days afterwards, but hey. This week I'll be going literally twice the distance- a mile a day for three days- and I don't have any back up plans. Finna celebrate with an icebath for my feet on wednesday. Also glad I got myself a heavy duty foldable cane for my birthday, cuz I'll probably need that shit on wednesday.
  7. oh shit I totally forgot this was coming out this year, I'm fukin ready for it
  8. SHINING SOUL [3] I dunno dude. I just needed something to play in bed because I've spent a lot of time in bed nursing sore muscles the last two days. It's an extremely, EXTREMELY mindless dungeon crawler that relies on you having friends to be any fun, but since I'm playing this on a cracked 3DS there's not gonna be any friends coming. It was probably way better when you had friends to play it with. RETURN OF THE OBRA DINN [4] So I posted about this at the start of the month, forgot that it was coming out this month, then saw it go on sale yesterday and immediately bought it and spent all day (Thursday is my Saturday) playing it. It's fucking fantastic. It's a Whodunnit for 60 Sailors, and it's an excellent example of non-linear storytelling. If spending $20 for a 7 hour trip to a spooky place that you can only really play once is worth it for you, then absolutely go for it. I'd say it's one of my favorite games of the year, but I have had strong dislike for extremely many of the games that came out this year, so what's that really worth to y'all?
  9. Hi! This is open for business again, thanks to the two hours a day I spend on public transport monday through wednesday. As with last year, only nominate one album. If you nominate two, I will listen to zero. There's three additional caveats: 1) Since I'll be listening to the album on the bus and making notes on the bus, the style of writing might be different. Before I was just typing while the music was going. Can't really do that on a bus (I don't have a laptop, before you ask). 2) Also, because of the whole bus thing, they'll be coming out slower than they did last year. As an added benefit, this means if you're next up you'll have more time to change your mind if something comes out. Also if you want to hear whatever else is happening this year (I know new Solange is on the horizon so I understand) before suggesting anything, the cut off date is the same as last year: December 31st. 3) No Kanye West anything. I didn't listen to Pusha T's new album because of Kanye. If I'm not going to listen to my favorite rapper's new album for my own satisfaction, I'm not going to listen to whatever else he did this year for yours. Sorry Teyana Taylor. Oh, and for the record, my album of the year is "In A Poem Unlimited" by U.S. Girls. I think it's perfect. Start to finish perfect.
  10. ok look i know that this is my second post about this record in this post, but I listened to it again on my bus ride home today and goddamn this is my favorite beat of the year. listen to this album.
  11. A few years ago I took time off my degree because my physical condition deteriorated so much that I couldn't sit through long lectures because I'd start crying from the pain in my leg. I went from the Deans List to failing two classes in one semester. Today was my first time getting myself home from college, and while it was painful, I only had to stop and sit down twice. Previously, I went from bench to bench, sometimes only making it a few dozen feet. So uh that rules
  12. Return of the Obra Dinn is out October 18th for $20. Return of the Obra Dinn is the new game from the developer of Papers Please. It's a supernatural murder mystery adventure game. It also has maybe the coolest art style I've ever seen in a game.
  13. Last year, I thought the new Shabazz Palaces records weren't for me. This summer, I shoved funk record after funk record into my face. I just went back to them this week, and yeah I was tripping last year. They're great.
  14. I'm not sure if anyone on here loves Liars the same way I do, but, just in case, the new Liars record that came out last month (Titles With The Word Fountain) is fucking completely amazing. It is, however, amazing in the same way that They Were Wrong So We Drowned was, which means that it seems like everyone fuckin hates it. It is the Angus's Raw Id record I thought TFCF could be, but this goes way further. However, if you were on Team Anti-Drowned, you'll strongly dislike this one.
  15. FORZA HORIZON 4 [4] Imagine a world in which Sega Rally Championship was the biggest racing franchise ever. Forza Horizon 4 is a game about games in that world. Its central conceit (we convinced Scotland to let us have an eternal car festival to the detriment of everyone living there who btw you never actually see) is similar to the Burnout Paradise "plot." At least in this you see that there are at some point drivers and people not currently driving. But then they add in like bossfights and shit. I dunno. I'm playing it through the Game Pass 14 day trial and it's fucking awesome and probably the Big Budget Game Of The Year.
  16. to be fair, that's because they have to meet deadlines in order to have money for food and shelter, so they can't deep dive into a single game's mechanics like someone playing it for pure entertainment can EDIT: I added a sidebar that made a lot more sense when I thought this was the general thread and not the upcoming game thread.
  17. Create New Wrestler, use which ever option isn't the "Start From Blank" one Load an edit, Delete is near the bottom
  18. I've never got the sense if I'm the only person that cares about milo or not, but I just bought concert tickets for his probably last show out here under that name so in honor of that, have some extremely good milo songs Take Advantage Of The Naysayer Bookoo Bread Co. (live) folk-metaphysics 2nd ed ecclesiastes
  19. Honestly I've meant to get caught up on this year's stuff since I'm taking public transport more and definitely have the time on there to listen to albums, but instead I've just been listening to Hermit & The Recluse (Ka and Animoss) over and over and over. It's all hypermassive chord beats that Ka sails over. Here's (roughly) how the record opens. Can't recommend it enough.
