  1. Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

    Excellent deductive reasoning. Also, my screen name is buried in the mix cd, vis-a-vis the small brown bike track. There is some great 90s emo/post hardcore in there, with a bunch of local NJ/Staten Island bands.

    Bingo. I am glad you dig everything. I had a blast putting it together. You're right, the pallbearer record is one of the year's best. It's at the top of my list. I also need to frame that Marald Van Haasteren print. I hope you and your girlfriend enjoy the movie, glad you had a blue-ray player. Happy holidays to you and yours. If i may ask what gave may identity away?

    SS gift arrived today in one big ass box! Will wait to open it. Stay tuned. ** Whoever has the power should swap the sticky for this year's SS thread.
  4. PO for the new Red Death LP went up earlier today. Get on this quick as they still have some red-orange mix (/200) at the moment. One of the many DC bands just killing it these days. http://triplebrecords.limitedrun.com/products/604951-red-death-formidable-darkness-cd-lp When a band forms, as Red Death did in late 2013, primarily out of reverence for Corrosion of Conformity — and especially when half the members hail from North Carolina — their second LP is bound to have a lot riding on it. Yet to say that Red Death have risen to the occasion is to say not nearly enough for Formi-dable Darkness, their new eight-song masterwork. It isn’t just their Animosity; it’s the best record to emerge from the hardcore scene’s hallowed metal/crossover wing since Iron Age’s The Sleeping Eye rewrote our DNA in 2009. Everything that made 2015’s Permanent Exile LP and 2016’s Deterrence EP modern classics has been amplified on the new album: the solos soar higher, the riffs penetrate deeper, the rhythm section pounds harder and with more precision, and the vocals are more unhinged. And it didn’t hurt that Arthur Rizk, by general consensus the best young producer in the game today, oversaw the recording. From their first practice in D.C. some four years ago, Red Death have been heirs to the proudest of traditions in the heavy-music underground, and with Formidable Darkness they’ve fulfilled their immense promise — just in time for the world’s ignominious end. As it was written, so it shall be.

    That's what it seemed like - the Vaseline smeared camera lens fever dreams were coming from half delusional crystal chandelier mini-rainbow covered face rick. We'll see if they keep it up all season like a breaking bad stuffed animal in the pool. It was confusing because it was confusing and silly. Less chatter more splatter. Where are all the magic walker headshot bullets when you need them? Carl is, and will always be, the worst.

    It was OK. While i always enjoy A-team style montages, I am not sure how much ballistic protection corrugated aluminum provides. How could they miss Negan and his whole crew? However, it's going to be really hard to replace all the glass. Gonna get really drafty on swap meet day.
  7. Awesome finds...

    I see flickr can embed photos. I though there used to be an issue.... I can probably re-embed the older photos which were in photobucket. Banded Sunfish - Enneacanthus obesus Mud Sunfish - Acantharcus pomotis Pirate Perch - Aphredoderus sayanus Swamp Darter - Etheostoma fusiforme Gould's Shipworm - Bankia gouldii Lesser Blue Crab - Callinectes similis

    Full disclosure: i am cribbing most of this from last year, but it's still valid and truthy. My name is Rob and I am older than i would like. I really dig a lot of older 80's Hardcore, Punk, Post Punk, Non-cheesy metal, early ska/rocksteady/regaee. Some random favorites: Mission of Burma, Gang of Four, Bad Brains, Life's Blood, Lifetime, GVSB, Greyhouse, Joy Division, Killing Joke, Milemarker, Baroness, Roky Erickson, Hot Water Music, Small Brown Bike, Murder By Death, Motorhead, Ringworm, Pallbearer, Metallica, Dag Nasty, Modern Lovers, Michael Kiwanuka, Culture, Thin Lizzy, Yuppicide, Cro-Mags, Iron Maiden, Celtic Frost, among others. Like most sane people i like Star Wars, plus Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galacitca, The Expanse Series, Evil Dead, Lost, Margret Atwood, Margritte, Hiroshige, iced tea, carbs, any day i can wear shorts... I like nature. I like being outside. I like going outside and finding snakes, salamanders, fish, beetles, moths and other assorted flora and fauna, but generally not people.
  9. Game Of Thrones: Season Seven

    RIP Roy Dotrice. He read all the GOT audiobooks. It will not be the same without him. He was unwell when book 4 was released and they had someone else record the audio. It was unlistenable. Upon his recovery, he re-recorded it, substantially improving the book. In the show Roy was originally supposed to play Pycelle, but due to his poor health the role was recast. He did end up playing the head Pyromancer around the battle for Kings Landing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Dotrice

    This should certainly continue, especially after dead format went down. I know i haven't put up a tradelist anywhere else (yet). We should pin this year's thread to the top as well. I got my SS this morning. good times.
  11. Secret Santa 2K17!!!! ***SIGN UP CLOSED!***

    In again this year. Maybe between now and xmas i'll figure out how to post pics now that photobucket are turds. Also, since deadformat is dead i dont have a tradelist up.... Plus, this page doesn't look right with Netscape.
  12. Who wants a Pallbearer ticket for Baltimore 9/6

    no one wants a free pallbearer ticket? Maybe we do live in Trump's America.
  13. With much sadness, I will not be able to attend the Pallbearer show at Metro Gallery (Baltimore) for this Wednesday 6 September. If you would like the ticket I can email it to you. I may not have internet access this coming week, so i would get up with me today.
  14. Game Of Thrones: Season Seven

    I agree that the conflict is certainly believable. It was just the way it unfolded - seemed off. Also agree that it seemed like Littlefinger pulled a fast one on Arya and Sansa, even after everything they have been through. Plus, Arya saw the Littlefinger/Tywin interaction at Harrenhal. Maybe it's an elaborate ruse to trap littlefinger, but probably not. I think some of my issue is that I like Strong Sansa - with agency, controlling situations, giving orders and council. Maybe she'll get to Littlefinger before Arya cuts his face off. Jamie is totally going to Cersei, Queenslayer style. However, i don't think it will be next season. There is still a lot to tie up with only 7 episodes left in the entire series.
  15. Is this still Chuck Miller? Sold my original a while back. May have to pick one up.
