    No complaining about jailings/bannings/locked threads in threads; if you have an issue, talk to the mod who did it.

    It's standard procedure now, but there is a first for everything :P

    Huh... there are lots of rules that could have been potentially named after Quid. Honestly that's not one I would have thought of.

    I don't remember why Quid was jailed, but it was over something stupid, and there was much bitching and unrest in [chat], leading to Quid's Law.

    Is there any chance he wasn't drunk at the time? Because it's "Quid's Law." I don't understand how it omits the metaphysical certitude that one must be drunk for it to be invoked.

    It is old history. He made a thread, or he started some rabble rabble about a decision or something

    He did something big that got mod attention, and the rule was made, and he probably got a major infraction.

    That means I've already gone through 5 years of comics. PA has been around for a while.

    I know, it's so weird to think about it. Time goes too fast... Too much life to cram into only 60 or so years.

    In that case I think I've come across ladder theory before in the guise of drunken freshmen. Buncha twats.

    It is unfair to refuse to let a band move on creatively.

    Load, Reload and Garage Inc weren't really moving on creatively... more like trying to make a quick buck with radio friendly soft rock. AJFA and the black album represents the band moving on creatively.

    I am one of those fans who only likes metallica's first three albums, everything else i could live without, except maybe a few snippets from ajfa and the black album.

    As horrible as this is, I think it's inhumane but to feel completel remorse and pity for the father. However stupid he was or is, he still lost his son. And in such a terrible terrible way.

    I hope to god he learns his lesson, and that others in turn, maybe learn something, so that other little boys can be spared. But I still feel absolutely terrible for the father.

    Just as U2 re-embraced their essential U2-ness post-Pop, this album is Metallica becoming Metallica again — specifically, the epic, speed-obsessed version from the band's template-setting trilogy of mid-Eighties albums: Master of Puppets, Ride the Lightning and, especially, the progged-out ...And Justice for All. That much is clear from the 90-second mark of Death Magnetic's first track, "That Was Just Your Life," where the band unleashes a barrage of James Hetfield's dutta-duh-duhnt riffing and Lars Ulrich's octuple-time double-bass-and-snare smashing. That long-vanished sound, as essential to Metallica as variations on the "Start Me Up" riff are to the Stones, is all over the album —you wonder how these fortysomething dudes are going to handle playing it live night after night. (Enter chiropractor.)
    Full Review

    Ehn, good enough review that I'm willing to give the album a listen.

    I think I might be retarded. Seriously. I honestly think I have some kind of mental retardation or something that's gone undiagnosed. I do this thing where I often replace random words with vaguely similar words. Like just a minute ago someone was saying something about a "sofa" and I kept hearing "mattress," and I was confused for like twenty minutes becaues the word "mattress" did not make sense in the context, and I didn't realize my mistake until someone physically gestured to the sofa. I mean I know people get confused sometimes but I seriously feel like I do this with an abnormal frequency.

    I wasn't referring to those albums specifically, and it's true that Metallica has produced some grade-A shit, but there are people who claim they haven't produced anything good since AJFA and immediately dismiss Death Magnetic.

    I'm not a big Metallica fan (the metal I listen to is stuff like Motorhead, Death, Iced Earth), but I've enjoyed what I've heard of their latest album.

    Could just be a problem with the synapses, rather than an actual mutation. If it really bothers you you should check with a neurologist.

    Oh please. "Nice" girls and "nice" guys both end up stuck with psychos-in-training because they're too "nice" to grow a spine and say 'No honey, you're psycho so I'm leaving you'.

    But this is probably something we're gonna get in trouble for talking about so if you'd like to continue I'm open to PMs.

    The idea of someone buying music before trying it out is strange to me. Hell, even friends of mine who insist on buying every album they want still listen to the songs on youtube first to see if they're any good.

    good guys are not weak. Bad guys seem tough. Some people, particularly young girls, think bad=tough. And then some stupid men (including me at age 18) think nice=wimp, and so put themselves in opposition to 'bad guys'.

    That's a different issue, but people don't notice because they conflate being a good person, being friends with a girl, and being a complete fucking wimp.

    The idea of someone buying music before trying it out is strange to me. Hell, even friends of mine who insist on buying every album they want still listen to the songs on youtube first to see if they're any good.

    That's what I mean by the time element. If no one brings something like metal to my attention (an area of music I don't pay much attention to) I'm not gonna be searching for it. If someone recommends it, especially someone like a friend who knows my musical tastes, then I'll look up a song on Youtube or borrow their CD.
