I soaked my microwave fan filters in my frying pan and used a multipurpose cleaner with febreze scent. It was so strong smelling that I must have cleaned it for 10 minutes. I cooked some lovely pork chops in it and eating them they tasted like febreze !! Yuck. I ate them anyway, now I need some mouth wash.

microwaves have fans w/filters?

febreeze is foul. always has been. always will be. 

why.. why on earth did you soak anything that wasn't food in a frying pan? that pan is now garbage. for health and comfort you need a new frying pan.

Hmmm. I wouldn't say the pan is dead. I think I can save it.

I periodically ruin my thermoses by washing them with dish detergent... And by forgetting to rinse them out for days... Hence the detergent. Not sure how I'm still alive, honestly.

Caught a fucking cold.  Fucking mouth breathing maskless strangers crowding the restaurants since July 1st.... just because you're allowed, doesn't mean you should!  Its such little effort to put on a mask, cunts.  I was really hoping that much of the "new normal" would carry on via basic common sense.

First two rentals I filled out applications for ghosted.  Tinder's influence reaches into all facets of society now.  We live in a society.   We live in Tinder.  😭

I'm trying to get through the second half of Ministry's discography, but the shitty drum mix is making it reeeeeeally difficult.  It's like he was deliberately making them sound as thin as possible, and gradually phasing out the kick entirely.  Possibly the only band to have consistently dropped in production quality from first album to last over such an extended period of time.  Usually that part improves with experience... I think maybe he went deaf a long time ago, but simply refuses to get any outside help.  It's really fucking brutal.  Yet the first 5 albums sound SO good.  It's too bad, because there are some decent tunes on here, and it would have been so easy to make that apparent with the right treatment.  Ah well.

they had some members of the band leave. probably had some impact on production.

Nah, the last 3 albums feat. Paul D'amour all sounded shite.  He and Al covered production duties on everything up to and including that point.  i see there are a few albums coming up that had an additional producer, but Al still has his hand in there.  It does not bode well.

Did they?  It's still Al and Paul handling production duties on all those.  I'm not sure having a diff bassist or drummer would have any bearing on that really.

Paul Barker was integral to the band during production/writing process afaik

But he still shat the bed on Filth Pig, Dark Side, and Animositomina.

i don't think you can load it all on one person's back but perhaps can point at drug use in the band and other factors like budget etc. i think bands, like marriages, have a "the honeymoon is over" period w/some members of the band and things change. 

who mixed/recorded the records probably has as much an impact too.

fwp: listened to too much Colundi, now 12tet sounds "sour" while the former sounds like the color violet/indigo. It's like the sound of a hyperintelligent clematis turning to observe you

:cisfor: colundi :cisfor:

I used to work with Chris Connelly and my understanding is that Al was just completely insane and became more so over time. Paul and Chris kept things going creatively but Al has a totally destructive thing that he’s always digging into. 
 

not sure if this explains how his records got so bad but I think it does have something to do with totally alienating people around him and making really bad decisions just bc that’s what he does

Very much so.

But, yeah, those second shots really deliver. Even my wife had some side effects and her immune system is made of steel.

fever, headache, fatigue, nausea, i have it all. no biggie. what bothers me though is i'm having low back pain, can't get any sleep because of it. 

been dealing w/same for a while though not as a result of the vaccine. ice pack on low back until it goes numb. then heating pad helps me. eating a little something helps my nausea. then once there's something in my stomach i can take 1 max strength advil. 

as for sleep.. yeah.. i'll probably never solve that riddle but i've been going to bed early these days to try and mitigate the morning tiredness. soaking in a hot bath helps me.

had a 2nd cup of coffee to try and power through fatigue but it's not working. two radiation treatments left. the nausea/fatigue landed previous monday and today i'm starting to understand why people say "no thanks" to chemo/radiation. my side effects are considered mild and I'm like fuck it can skip the last 2 treatments? but won't of course. will go thru w/it all and ring the stupid bell on tuesday after the last one. 

also, many cringe feels about aging, dating, creativity, music, pity party, tiny violins etc.
