  1. I love Vonnegut, I still have much more to read, but my favourites (in order) are: Sirens of Titan Cat's cradle Slaughterhouse 5 bluebeard Jailbird Breakfast of champions I just started reading one flew over the Cuckoo's nest after failing miserably to get through both Ulysses and Atlas shrugged (just to say I read it and have an option about it, but man is it awful)
  2. I know part of the song is about William S. Burroughs accidentally killing his wife in mexico city, while they were high and playing William Tell (target practice is for mexico)
  3. that's good to know.... however, I only have a PS2 and definitely don't have a fancy TV
  4. I'm glad to hear! I haven't pulled the trigger on it, mostly because I still don't have a PS4. Due to the lockdown, marketplace prices have gone through the roof, and I can't justify paying full price, considering how much use I'd get out of it. I just started to replay the original FFVII. The graphics were incredibly jarring at the beginning, but I've gotten used to it now
  5. I’ve been playing rimworld... which is amazing and frustrating and hilarious. I recommend it to anyone. i have also been debating trying to get a hold of an old PS4 in anticipation of Final fantasy vii remake... this would probably not bode well for my marriage
  6. I've been watching it... and enjoying it, but I agree that it isn't star trek. I was a huge star trek fan back in the day, and still love revisiting the old series (TNG through voyager anyway), but I find that TPTB have it stuck in their heads that "star trek" doesn't sell, so they repackage it as darker, more violent, sexier, etc... which completely destroys the whole premise. That being said, I accept that its sci-fi with some familiar actors that I like and keep "star trek" out of my head when I watch it (Hell, you'd have to do that to watch JJ's movies, most of enterprise, etc) if you are on the fence, and want it trekkier, you will probably shut it off in disgust at the end of the 3rd episode.
  7. i've had a chance to listen to the album a couple of times through now, and it's definitely a grower. For me, so far, the stand outs are: one of them years, booby trapped, radicals and dreading it, but I find most of them quite good. Its amazing that when I first started listening to Matt (Beautiful Midnight era), I found that so many of the songs resonated with me at the time (grade 9)... and I find now, 20 odd years later, that the same applies for his new material. There are lyrical moments on the new album that hit me like a ton of bricks. I find the album quite bittersweet, as the best moments are ones that cause me to reflect back at moments of pain, but the fact that it connects with me brings a kind of melancholy happiness. It's a strange, wonderful experience.
  8. Back when he toured Chaotic neutral, he basically played the whole album live. I remember that he opened with Harridan (epic!), and played tiger by the tail near the end of the set
  9. my list: lights of endangered species avalanche chaotic neutral hospital music something like a storm vancouver white light rock and roll review arrows of desire i found this a bit tough, because there are moments on each album that warrant higher ranking consideration (especially on WLR&RR). I think that Chaotic neutral has less low points than Avalanche, but the highs on Avalanche are way higher than Chaotic Neutral, etc. I love Hospital music, but there are a couple of duds that put it behind chaotic neutral.
  10. having a young boy myself, I cant even imagine what you and your family are going through... condolences man
  11. I have always felt the same way, I would add that I am also not a huge fan of double life and would always skip those two songs in a row
  12. I’ve been lucky enough to see Matt several times (8, twice acoustically), but I am definitely a bit jealous of those attending, it sounds like it will be pretty special. Fearless and change of season? Crazy. Omissions of the omen and the Inescapable Us would be up there for me as well. I guess I will settle for some live recordings of whatever we are lucky enough to get ;)
  13. I think that this is primarily an issue of terminology. Are we taking about "obese" as it pertains to BMI (body mass index)? Or simply by the way that someone's body is shaped. Some people eat healthy and exercise moderately and are still "fat", and that is partially genetics and cant be changed with any amount of lifestyle related intervention. At the end of the day, these people probably still have an increased chance of heart related issues, cancer or diabetes but there is only so much you can do. I don't think the telling these people to work exponentially harder than the regular person to control diet and exercise is helpful. However, promoting poor eating habits and sedentary behaviour is certainly detrimental to the individual as well as to society. I think that eduction as opposed to social movements or advertising is much more helpful (as the message is often misconstrued one way or the other).
  14. this is probably not that realistic.... but, who knows: Bad Guys Win load me up/Carmelina decades Born losers blue skies over badlands (or Non populus) hello time bomb days come down strange days Men at the door Giant Cloudbusting There the first time advertising on police cars Bullets in a Briefcase encore 1: Fine art of falling apart (acoustic) prime time deliverance (acoustic) Apparitions (acoustic) encore 2: something like a storm Everything is Automatic weapon
  15. just got my copy of AoB, ordered it from Amazon.... The record sleeve is creased in 2 spots, one is not bad but the other is super obvious, kind of pissed about it. The vinyl itself is in great shape and plays well though
