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.

Ahh dude, that sounds horrifying.  Sorry you have to deal with that.

I'm such a baby about nausea especially... not looking forward to this second vax.  I can still block potential/likely cancer diagnoses of the future out of my head for the time being.

My real FWP tho is listening to Justin Timberlake's last album and getting depressed at how impressively clean all the mixes are.

damn Ignatius... you got this man!

Zephyr: it just so happens i listened to "what goes around comes around" today. That was such a great album. 

My problem is I hung out with my dad today for our yearly or so visit.  He can be a real asshole. It went fairly well I'd say, except for the drive home on the highway. He's never been a good driver and has been in his share of accidents. That combined with him getting older I was fucking scared for my safety. I gotta really talk to him about it, no more highway driving when I'm with him.

Edit: 

I missed opening ceremonies of the Olympics? Or did they not do that this year?

Do you mean the 20/20 Experience?  I believe it has a song with that lyric on it.  I haven't heard that one in a long time, but I did have the CD.

FWP: I need to have a shower before my shift, but I don't want to walk through the yard to the main house because then I will have to face the people who have been diligently working away in the yard for hours.  And then I will feel awkward as the guy in his house coat that lazes around until 4:15 before having a shower, rather than putting in hours labour in the yard/garden.  No idea WTF they're working on btw... but they sure are taking their sweet time.

Dropped my phone, and now the screen just flashes patches of light.  Currently trying out a bunch of random solutions that probably won't work.

 

so,  your phone turned into www.Skam.co.uk from the year 2001
