2020.10.27 04:41 throwawaybanana39 I (30F) cannot get over the abuse I faced last year, and my story is bizarre

Preface: The following contains mention of gaslighting, abuse, sexual assault, and general bad vibes so please be wary of that.
Introduction
As of early June, 2019, a long-term relationship with the boyfriend I was living with ended.
He and I started off great on March 15th, 2018. I asked him out when he was a charming, long-haired customer at my old place of employment and the first date went super well. He knew all the right things to says, and his charming Jason Momoa-esque appearance overshadowed his general odor and lack of physique.
But...The warning signs began early.
The first time I realized something was wrong was when I found out he had stalked my Facebook (that I had not given him) before he had even gone out with me in order to alter himself to suit my political affiliation, my likes, and my dislikes. He had even looked up a quote from my favorite movie in order to impress me, despite having never seen it before.
Some may call this cute and harmless, and it certainly began innocently enough, but it's where everything began snowballing.
We moved in rather early in our relationship. A first mistake, but I was spending so much time there anyway. In addition to this, my best friend needed a place to go and my boyfriend happened to have a spare bedroom available, so I thought it was two for two on good deals.
He certainly never made me forget, however, that she and I were only ever a guest there.
The small, tiny lies began to pile up as his real self became more and more revealed and eventually we began to fight. He wasn't the person I thought he was. I felt rather betrayed, and we simply weren't compatible like I had been led to believe. He hated learning, even saying that there's no point to it if he can't learn everything. He played games I found dull, like Fortnite, and had a terrible temper when he lost that would sour a whole evening. And he would smoke so much weed, I wasn't sure where he started and the drug began. I found him childish, where he had seemed so much more interesting at first. I think that resentment came out sometimes on my part, and that's my fault for not simply ending things there.
The Fights Begin
Our first big fight was when he got upset with me when I asked if he had a problem with lying. I had caught him lying about tiny, trivial things from a band he said he loved (and then later forgot existed) down to basic facts about himself and I began getting worried that he was pathologic. He started sobbing and yelling about how "everyone would do this" to him and that I was talking like his sister. He said I would just "abandon him" like everyone else had and that he might as well just kill himself.
I was scared. I felt like I wasn't being unfair by asking if he had a problem with lying after catching him in several webs of lies, but his reaction shook me to my core. He started becoming more unhinged and took me with him.
Most of the time (and definitely in front of others) he would act on his best behavior. He would go out of his way to do kindnesses for me and my family and friends, and this kept me thinking that he was good-hearted. But those niceties were, in many ways, laced with a palpable passive aggressive energy. If I acknowledged it in front of friends, he would say I was "making problems in front of people" and if I didn't acknowledge it, it would only get worse. I felt trapped.
Over time, he would begin pressuring me into sex. I was so stressed out about work and life that my sex drive plummeted, but he would say things like "Do you even think I'm attractive?" or "this isnt normal, to not have sex at all" or "this is the least amount of sex I've ever had in a relationship." He would then throw tantrums if I refused his advances after that, crying in the bathroom, in his car, or getting angry and needing to "drive to cool off." The more he would behave like this, the more I stopped wanting him.
Cheating
Eventually, he cheated on me. At the time, we had been discussing a polyamorous lifestyle, but he always found it to be less than ideal, which I was fine with. I respected that and was monoamorous for the entire time.
When he cheated on me, it was a roller coaster of a day. I had rebuffed his sexual advances that night for some reason (I think I felt a little sick) and he got frustrated and called me asexual. He said he was going to "cool off" at a men's spa that was open 24 hours, and I went to sleep.
I woke up at 4:30am to a phone call from him. He excitedly informed me that he and a man there had gotten frisky and he got the man's number. The exact details began to be told to me, but I asked him to stop. I told him we would talk when he got back, as it was so early and I was incredibly confused.
He got back home later, around 7am or so, and shook me awake to talk about it. I recall him recounting the experience with a smile on his face. I said, plainly and without any anger, "You cheated on me." Because I wasn't angry. I am not a jealous person by nature, and was happy if he was happy. But he did break the previously mentioned rules of the relationship and I felt as though those boundaries needed to be far more clear.
He exploded. I hadn't ever seen a person change moods so quickly. He went from excited to panicked. He claimed he had been assaulted. He claimed that it was all a mistake. He said the guy had been "curving" him all morning and that he just broke down and let him do what he did. His story jumped from place to place, and I wasn't entirely sure what was going on anymore.
As a r*pe survivor personally, I cannot make any assertions as to a person's reaction to sexual assault. It is a very nuanced and complicated process of responses and can often change from day to day. But this moment is when our relationship changed for the worse, and he said if I ever brought it up again, we would be over.
Later, we needed to have a discussion about what our model of relationship would be from now on, and we decided upon a polyamorous one. It was my request, but he agreed and said it would be better for us.
The Polyamory Issue
He began going on dates with individuals, some of whom were a decade younger than he was. Before one date in particular, he told me that he had been interested in the girl involved for a few years and I wished him luck. Later, when he picked me up from school, he informed me she was 18. Now. He was 28. I immediately felt sickened at the implication that he was chasing after a minor for years and I didn't talk for a while. To intimidate me, he began speeding and driving erratically, yelling that nothing had happened. He stated that he had exchanged nudes with her before knowing she was a minor, but it wasn't his fault because she had lied about her age.
To this day, I still don't know what happened there and never want to know.
I did not go on dates. Despite being interested in several people at the time, my boyfriend was evidently very uncomfortable with me doing anything with anyone and so I began getting frustrated. I also noticed that he was breaking into my phone if I left it unattended and was staring at texts over my shoulder, and went through years and years of Facebook messages sent to me before our relationship had started. He found pictures and lewd messages other men had sent me via messenger (not saved on my phone, but in the ether that is facebook) and began grilling me about my relationships with them. His insecurities flooded out like a broken dam, and he projected them onto me via a series of gaslighting, yelling, and apologies. When he got incredibly upset, he would try to drag my best friend into our arguments, or threaten to drive off a bridge nearby.
The Mistakes At one point, during a very heated screaming session over something banal, he put his face very close to mine and grabbed me by the shoulders and screamed that he could see why others had abused me in the past because of how opinionated and confrontational I was. I told him he was an awful person to me and clenched my fists in fear and he said "Oh, if you want to hit me then just HIT ME!!!" as loud as he possibly could. His spit flew onto my face and I got so horribly frightened that I did---a slap across the face that I immediately regretted. My loss of control is something I regret for all of time. My hands flew up to my mouth and I apologized, but he laughed maniacally and said "You're abusive! I am going to call the police!" I started crying and felt so awful and terrible, and grabbed my socks and shoes to get out of the house. But he then grabbed my cell phone and said if I wanted to leave, I would need to walk and that he would bar me from using an Uber. I told him I would do anything to leave and didn't need my phone anyway, but he blocked my exit. (For clarification, he was 6'2 and over 240 lbs. I am 5'2 and 117 lbs.)
I tried to move through him, but he pushed me away. I tried to get under him, but he pushed me down. I begged him to let me leave, but he refused. He said we needed to "talk" and that he wanted to "apologize for everything, even what I'm doing right now!" He started saying he "wouldn't be here, or anywhere" if I left, and I was petrified that he was again saying he would kill himself. He threatened to kick my best friend out onto the street if I left and she would "have nowhere to go and it would be all my fault." He would use these empty leverage tools to scare me because he knew I wouldn't want my friend and I scrambling for housing alternatives, but I saw them as the bald-faced lies they were. He was afraid and his grip on the relationship was flying out of control.
We talked. I stayed. My mistake. I should've left right then and rolled with whatever consequences would ensue. He said he would go to therapy but seemed vindicated. This would eventually happen at increasing frequency for 3 months until the last fight.
The Last Fight The last fight began while I was still in the shower that morning. I had gotten up early to do some work for my job at 9am, and he was still in bed. He came into the bathroom and asked to join me in the shower, and I said he could. Minutes passed with him just standing outside the shower, and I asked him what was up. He said, "Nothing. So, what were you planning on doing yesterday?"
I knew immediately he had gone through my phone again. I had changed my lock screen password just a few nights before, but he had figured it out by watching me and even warned me the night before: "I know your password now, you should change it." That pointed of a question doesn't come out of nowhere.
For clarity, I had made plans to hang out with a friend, but nothing had happened between us and no conversation had even occurred to indicate that I was interested in this individual. I cancelled those plans because I needed to work. I didn't find it important to discuss because a) it was cancelled swiftly and b) my boyfriend had been seeing and texting people too and I didn't mind.
I asked, knowing full well this would reveal that I had 'something to hide': "Did you go through my phone?"
He said, "No! But now I know you did have plans!"
"Ok, but why would you ask such a weirdly specific question if you hadn't gone through my phone?"
He backpedaled. "Ok, I opened your phone but only saw the last message you sent of you cancelling. I didn't go through the conversation."
"The last message was 'No worries' though?"
He FLIPPED OUT. He started saying that if I didn't trust him, our relationship was basically doomed, and I said that was fine. I was sick of this juvenile stuff anyway. I started packing my bags and he started screaming at me, saying it was my fault for lying about plans that I never informed him of. I understood and said I should've informed him, but that I had cancelled them and it shouldn't have mattered in the long run.
Eventually, he admitted to lying and going through my phone, but the damage had been done.
He threatened to throw away my Wacom Cintiq he had bought me for Christmas, told me that he was going to call the police if I trespassed, and then said he was only "joking" and tried to apologize and fix things. I refused. He got worse and doubled down on his threats. He threw his sunglasses in my direction, and they collapsed into the drying rack behind me. He wrenched my cell phone from my hands and threatened to throw it out a window. I told him I didn't care. I was done.
Leaving I left with the help of my best friends after he threatened me with the police one last time, and they helped me to pack up my year long life there and brought me to a friend's attic that I lived at until June 14th, 2019. I found an apartment on Craigslist near my work and lived there until this July.
Worst of all? He kept the kitten my brother had given us. His name is on her records, but I gave him the money to pay for the vet. He said he could provide her with a better life, what with me living in a city apartment. But neither my brother nor I am comfortable with this, but he says he will sue me in small claims court. I have given up. I will miss her more than anything.
I didn't write this for any other reason besides to get it off my chest. It happened a year and a half ago but it still weighs on me all the time. I just needed to vent. 😭

2020.10.27 01:23 luimd TOP 50 BY NIRVANA (Kurt Cobain)

Thanks to this list I was introduced to a lot of noise rock and beat happening lo fi style of music. Now that I’m older, and I am so glad I got to hear this when I was much younger. As i play these records over and over, especially during Covid-19, I get to understand the connection of his music and his influences a lot more everyday.
I’m sure most of us know this list by now but I’ve added comments by Cobain, if there are any. And some of the comments are mixed in from interviews or things he’s written. I also included an honorable mentions for Cobain even though he didn’t write one, I’m including albums I feel we’re a big part of his sound but weren’t included on his own Top 50.
I want to share what I was doing in my free time to anyone who has the same interest. If anyone else has anything to share that would be great too.
  1. Iggy and the Stooges – Raw Power (1973) “I own all the Stooges albums," he recites. Maybe we’re more like the Stooges type of punk rock, before punk rock was a trendy fashion statement. And, where people would expect to try to act as punk rock as possible. It seemed that when Iggy was playing to his audience, he dove out into the audience and cut himself up because he wanted this audience to act like that. Or, he wanted to create an environment the way that he felt. And at the time, the audience response was just, basically, heckling.
  2. Pixies – Surfer Rosa (1988) A die-cast metal fossil of misplaced craft, with or without the fucking production." "Everyone who has ever commented on "Surfer Rosa" has said, Yeah, the productions amazing. I agree with that, but the songs are so strong that it wouldnt have mattered if youd listened to it through a boom-box. "I was completely nihilistic up until about four or five years ago, when I first heard this. It changed my attitude. It made me finally admit, after being into punk rock for so many years, that I liked other styles of music as well. It made me finally admit that Im a music lover. Their music reminded me of the music that I always wanted to do and was doing before I got into punk rock, eight or nine years ago. When I first started writing songs, they were a mixture of punk rock and The Beatles, but then I abandoned that and did nothing but Black Flag rip-offs. "Right around the time Surfer Rosa came out, Sub Pop was happening and I was starting to write those sort of hard rock, Iggy/Aerosmith songs again. "Its obvious that when Bleach came out ... except for that one song, About A Girl... that I was very set in one frame of mind. I heard songs off Surfer Rosa that I’d written but threw out because I was too afraid to play them for anybody. Im really glad that at least weve got that one song on the album, but I had a few more like that that I couldve put on the album, and I wish I had, because then it wouldve sounded more like Nevermind and it wouldnt have been such a drastic leap." We were driving up to Tacoma every night for practice, trying to write songs. I was trying to write the ultimate pop song. I was basically trying to rip off the Pixies. I have to admit it [smiles]. When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so heavily I should have been in that band — or at least in a Pixies cover band. We used their sense of dynamics, being soft and quiet and then loud and hard. a lot of people can't stand the sound of The Pixies' first record. I don't understand it, I think that's one of the best-sounding records I ever heard. It's just a matter of opinion."
  3. The Breeders – Pod (1990) Its an epic that will never let you forget your ex-girlfriend." "By that I dont necessarily mean that the record reminds me of my last girlfriend. It seems that when the girls in The Breeders get together, they give off this air of... their ex-boyfriends. But the main reason I like them is for their songs, for the way they structure them, which is totally unique, very atmospheric. I wish Kim was allowed to write more songs for The Pixies, because Gigantic is the best Pixies song and Kim wrote it. "I love their attitude. Doe, the song about where a girl gives a boy head and he pats her on the head like a doe, is very funny. Theyre strong women, but its not that obvious. Theyre not militant about it at all. You can sense they love men at the same time."
  4. The Vaselines – Dying for It (1988, listed as Pink EP) "Eugene + Francis = documented love" "I just have this feeling they had a really cool relationship. I dont know if thats true or not, but I just think its a really amazing thing when a couple can get together and write some of the most beautiful songs Ive ever heard. Theyre kind of sharing their life with people. Eugene and Francis are the Captain and Tennille of the underground. "Could I imagine myself and Courtney ever doing something like that? Absolutely. We play together all the time. Musically, were compatible, because we think exactly the same and we feel the same, and its really easy to come up with good music if youre like that. If I could just have a romantic relationship with Chris and Dave, it would be nice. I have no definite plans to release the stuff with Courtney, but its a nice idea. Maybe we’ll do it someday, but we have too many things to do right now. Just playing together in our house is satisfying."
  5. The Shaggs – Philosophy of the World (1969) "Its so obviously the real thing" "They were all sisters, with their evil uncle making plans for them. I heard this one live song a Carpenters song, maybe? ...where they must have been playing a day centre, and the screams in the background are louder than the music. The Shaggs are another archetypal K band. "Am I a Calvinist (named after Calvin Johnson, leader of Beat Happening and founder of K Records in Olympia, where Kurt used to live)? No. The Calvinists are a handful of Olympia residents between the ages of 16 and 50 who wear Leave It to Beaver hats and sweaters, worship Calvin and follow him around. They leave him gifts, and they have Calvin altars, and candles and effigies of Calvin. I dont know much about the rituals of praising Calvin, but I know what punk rock is about." Cobain says he listened to the Shaggs’ Philosophy of the World (Third World) every day for months. The three girls on the front have ’60s hairdos and wear plaid pleated skirts. “The first records are good but then they started taking it seriously and really trying to learn how to play their instruments and it wasn’t as good.”
  6. Fang – Landshark (1982) Nirvana covered The Money Will Roll Right In live.
  7. MDC – Millions of Dead Cops (1981) Kurt Cobain was young, about 17 or so, he got arrested and he had this cassette in his pocket
  8. Scratch Acid – Scratch Acid (1984, listed as 1st EP) "The reason I like Scratch Acid so much was because they had structure to their songs, real simple pop structure that you could follow real easily, and it was almost like an Aerosmith song, but it was really fucked up, bending strings, borderline in-tune-that type of chaos." And that's what I was doing and that's what I wanted to do,"
  9. Saccharine Trust – Paganicons (1981, listed as 1st EP)
  10. Butthole Surfers – Pee Pee the Sailor (1983) includes “The Shah Sleeps In Lee Harvey’s Grave” in his Montage of Heck Cassette
  11. Black Flag – My War (1984) when describing Fecal Matter, Cobain said “it sounded exactly like Black Flag," Kobain says. "Totally abrasive, fast, punk music. There were some Nirvana elements … some slow songs, even then. And there was some heavy, Black Sabbath-influenced stuff. I can't deny Black Sabbath. Or Black Flag."
  12. Bad Brains – Rock for Light (1983) Kurt was 17 and “play the album over and over by day then drink and eat acid by night through the summer (Come As You Are)
  13. Gang of Four – Entertainment! (1979) That's the kind of band we used to be. We used to be more, like, Gang Of Four, New Wave influenced. Like, more experimental, with more noise and different effects boxes and stuff.
  14. Sex Pistols – Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols (1977) A million times more important than The Clash" "How do I explain that? Hmm, Both were the original punk bands, but The Clash were always a bad imitation of The Rolling Stones, in love with America. But at least they took their girlfriends on tour with them (The Slits). Their music was terrible, though. I blame Sandinista for not letting me get into punk, years after I shouldve done it was so bad. "The Pistols album has the best production of any rock record Ive ever heard. Its totally in-your-face and compressed. All the hype The Sex Pistols had was totally deserved ... they deserved everything that they got. Johnny Rotten was the one I identified with, he was the sensitive one. "The only reason I might agree with people calling our band The Sex Pistols of the Nineties is that, for both bands, the music is a very natural thing, very sincere. But in terms of influence, fuck, no! Rock is too exhausted for that. We havent produced a totally original sound like that. We might be uncompromising, but thats about it. Were an obvious metamorphosis. This is still the best-produced record in the world. I want to work with the guys who produced this on our next record. “But if they’ve been progressing with technology, their production might suck now.”
  15. The Frogs – It’s Only Right and Natural (1989)
  16. PJ Harvey – Dry (1992)
  17. Sonic Youth – Daydream Nation (1988)
  18. The Knack – Get the Knack (1979) I love The Knack! The Knack are great! The first Knack record is a classic…
  19. The Saints – Know Your Product (1978)
  20. Kleenex – “anything by:” (1978-1983)
  21. The Raincoats – The Raincoats (1979) I know a lot of coolies who suck and feed off the the fact that they know about and (supposedly) enjoy unknown, obscure bands of present and past. These coolies thrive on their own little discoveries like those tiny fish who attach themselves to bigger fish and parasitically feed off the hosts’ droppings and burnt coffee. A while ago, I found myself in bloody exhaust grease London again with an all-consuming urge to hunt for some rare things: the very-out-of-print first Raincoats LP. In an attempt to satisfy the second part of my quest, I went to the Rough Trade shop and, of course, found no Raincoats record in the bin. I then asked the woman behind the counter about it and she said “well, it happens that I'm neighbors with Anna (member of The Raincoats) and she works at an antique shop just a few miles from here.” So she drew me a map and I started on my way to Anna's. Sometime later, I arrived at this elfin shop filled with something else I've compulsively searched for over the past few years - really old fucked up marionette-like wood carved dolls (quite a few hundred years old). Lots of them... I've fantasized about finding a ship filled with so many. They wouldn't accept my credit card but the dolls were really too expensive anyway. Anna was there, however, so I politely introduced myself with a fever-red face and explained the reason for my intrusion. I can remember her mean boss almost setting me on fire with his glares. She said “well, I may have a few lying around so, if I find one, I'll send it to you (very polite, very English).” I left feeling like a dork, like I had violated her space, like she probably thought my band was tacky. A few weeks later I received a vinyl copy of that wonderfully classic scripture with a personalized dust sleeve covered with xeroxed lyrics, pictures, and all the members' signatures. There was also a touching letter from Anna. The Raincoats were not very well known in the States - I don’t know about the U.K. in fact, I don’t really know anything about The Raincoats except that they recorded some music that has affected me so much that, whenever I hear it I’m reminded of a particular time in my life when I was (shall we say) extremely unhappy, lonely, and bored. If it weren’t for the luxury of putting that scratchy copy of The Raincoats’ first record, I would have had very few moments of peace. I suppose I could have researched a bit of history about the band but I feel it’s more important to delineated the way I feel and how they sound. When I listen to The Raincoats I feel as if I'm a stowaway in an attic, violating and in the dark. Rather than listening to them, I feel like I'm listening in on them. We're together in the same old house and I have to be completely still or they will hear me spying from above and, if I get caught--everything will be ruined because it's their thing. They're playing their music for themselves. It's not as sacred as wire-tapping a Buddhist monk's telephone or something because if The Raincoats really did catch me, they would probably just ask me if I wanted some tea. I would comply, then they would finish playing their songs and I would say thank you very much for making me feel good.
  22. Young Marble Giants – Colossal Youth (1980) "Lying in an iron lung filled with lukewarm water and Epsom salts" "This music relaxes you, its total atmospherics. Its just nice, pleasant music. I love it. The drum machine has to have the cheesiest sound ever. Were going to be on a Young Marble Giants compilation, doing Credit In The Straight World. I had a crush on the singer for a while, didn’t everyone? "I didnt know much about them the Moxham brothers, right? I heard they might be getting back together again recently. (NB: Stuart Moxham just produced one side of the new Beat Happening album, another of Kurts favourite bands). Isnt it weird how, when you hear something like that, you still get excited, even though you know you shouldnt? "I first heard Colossal Youthbon the radio, after I started getting into K music when I lived in Olympia. It was a year before I put out the Bleach album. At the time, I was just painting and doing art stuff. I still do, Young Marble Giants, god. I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't heard that record. I am heavily influenced by them. It doesn't sound like it in our music, but just the emotions they evoked and the feeling, the sincerity and all that. And the song-writing, I think, is fantastic and it’s so original too, you know? No drums, except for the little casio thing… Great, I just love that stuff.
  23. Aerosmith – Rocks (1976) Kurt likes the drum sound
  24. Various Artists – What Is It. (1982) includes The Eyes Don’t Talk To Me in his journals
  25. R.E.M. – Green (1988) I also like R.E.M., "Pop Song '89" is in my opinion the best song written this year, even if I don't like the rest of the album. Maybe it reminds me in some ways of the third Led Zeppelin album
  26. Shonen Knife – Burning Farm (K Records version, 1985) "When l finally got to see them live, I was transformed into a hysteric nine-year-old girl at a Beatles concert" I was crying and jumping up and down and tearing my hair out - it was amazing. I've never been so thrilled in my whole life. They play pop music - pop, pop, pop music. This was the first cassette that came out on K. Eventually, after a week of listening to it everyday, I started crying. Thats how much it affected me. I just couldnt believe that three people from a totally different culture could write songs as good as those, because Id never heard any other Japanese music or artist who ever come up with anything good. "Everything about them is just so fucking endearing. Theyre not too cute! Thats part of the charm. Do I think theres a paedophiliac element to their appeal? I think, in Japanese culture in general, theres a paedophilioc element ... most of the women there dress up as young girls. Its weird. "Im sure that I was twice as nervous to meet them as they were to meet us. I didnt want to offend or scare them in any way, because I know Im a scruffy, slimy person who might scare them off ... and thats exactly what I did. They were afraid of me. In fact, on one of our first dates together, they saw me at the backstage area walking towards them and they screamed at the top of their voices, turned around and ran away from me, and then peeked their heads out of their dressing room. I was trying to reassure them that I was harmless. The communication we had with them was deathly silence and a lot of smiling. "In many ways, theyre the ultimate K band, because they are sincere, they are real. They dont purposely put their guitars out of tune, and they dont purposely sing out-of-tune."
  27. The Slits – Typical Girls (1979)
  28. The Clash – Combat Rock (1982) I think the best Clash album is 'Combat Rock', I f---ing love that record! It's definitely better than 'Sandinista' "I remember I found ‘Sandinista' at the library, and I hated it. I thought, if this is what punk rock is, then I don't want anything to do with it. It's too bad, because I'd wanted to hear punk rock forever.
  29. The Faith/Void – The Faith/Void (1982) I always really admired bands like Faith, Void, and Rites of Spring, not to forget the always amazing Bad Brains
  30. Rites of Spring – Rites of Spring (1985)
  31. Beat Happening – Jamboree (1988) I moved to Olympia, from Aberdeen, it was the first place that I moved to, on my own. I was twenty. I'd just started Nirvana and K Records and that whole scene in Olympia turned me on to so much amazing music. Every couple of years I feel that I've gone as far as I can with being introduced to something new, and then something like that hits me and it gives me life for a few years. It opened up new doors to music i hadn’t heard before. There’s a whole another world of underground music that I wasn’t even aware of. It made me realize that for years I hadn’t looked back on my childhood. I tried to forget about it. It made me look back at my child hood and have fond memories of it. It was just a nice reminder of innocence.
  32. Tales of Terror – Tales of Terror (1984) includes “Chambers of Horror” in his journals
  33. Leadbelly – Leadbelly’s Last Sessions Volume One (1953) Time to get the Leadbelly records out.” Cobain hands me one, a deep blue duotone adorning the time-worn jacket. “I think he’s still most popular among intellectual Jewish communists from the East Coast,” he says jokingly. Orgones, pyles, cells, and he probably knew the difference between male and female hemp" "That all has something to do with Burroughs, because Burroughs turned me onto that guy. He said that if you want to hear true, honest music with passion, then you should hear Leadbelly. The songs are just amazingly heartfelt. I absolutely love it more than any rock'n'roll I ever heard."Leadbelly was this poor black man in the early 1900s who went to jail a few times for wife-beating and robbery and getting into fights and bootlegging liquor. While he was in prison, he started playing the guitar, and he sang so well that the governor started to like him and let him out of jail. Leadbelly became an apprentice with Blind Lemon Jefferson and started recording songs, but none of the commercial recordings he made ever captured his true essence, except for these last sessions. They happened when this guy who’d been following his career for a few years caught him on a two-track tape recorder one night when they were hanging out at this hotel. Its just real cool. "Id hope that my songs approximate that honesty. Thats what I strive for. He was like the first punk rocker, because he was such a hardened person. He’d get into town, walk into an all white bar, try to have a drink, get beat up and then go to jail because of it. So its really cool to hear this music, especially the air of the recordings themselves, because its so eerie to hear it on this crackly two-track. Hell start off with a little introduction on what the song is about, play a little and [dive] in." "But thats what Folkways records are like theyre awesome. Im gonna get a Folkways tattoo next to my Black Flag tattoo. Folkways are affiliated to the Smithsonian Institute; they even have the entire Watergate tapes available as a 10 album set. Our next album covers gonna be like a Folkways album cover no gloss on it at all, just recycled paper and the strip of paper on the back."
  34. Mudhoney – Superfuzz Bigmuff (1988)
  35. Daniel Johnston – Yip/Jump Music (1983) “He’s an insane person, been in and out of mental hospitals… I have a videotape of him playing. He sits down at this organ — you know, the kind Christians had in their homes in the late ’60s, the ones with the colored plastic tempo buttons. He starts crying about mid-way through the first song. It’s just so touching, you feel so sorry for him, but at the same time you’re so intrigued.”
  36. Flipper – Album – Generic Flipper (1982) They’re a San Francisco band from the early 1980s— well, actually, they started in late 1979—very noisy, very influential for my band, one of my favorite bands; they’re very slow and noisy and fucked up. Punk rock attitude..
  37. The Beatles – Meet the Beatles! (1964) Um, I would say the biggest influence I've ever had would be The Beatles, because I listened to The Beatles since I was five years old up until I was in 4th Grade - the same three records ("Introducing... The Beatles" (1964), "Meet The Beatles!" (1964), and "The Beatles Second Album" (1964) )over and over every night! I sang the songs and I wanted to see The Beatles. It was about 1973 when I heard on the radio that they'd been broken up for three years, I was totally devastated!
  38. Half Japanese – We Are They Who Ache with Amorous Love (1990) Half Japanese – We Are They Who Ache with Amorous Love (1990)With my headphones on, Jad and l share our little secret walking through shopping malls and airports" "I like to listen to Jad Fair and Half-Japanese with headphones on walking around shopping malls, in the heart of American culture. I just think that, if people could hear this music right now, theyd melt, they wouldnt know what to do, theyd start bouncing off the walls and hyper-ventilating. So I turn up the music really loud and pretend it was blasting through the speakers on the malls,"
  39. Butthole Surfers – Locust Abortion Technician (1987) “I used to curse the Butthole Surfers for having fifteen-dollar ticket prices. Now I obviously understand it more... I want to do more new wave, avant-garde stuff with a lot of dynamics—stops and breaks and maybe even some samples of very weird noise and things—not samples of instruments. I want to turn into the Butthole Surfers basically
  40. Black Flag – Damaged (1981) I met the Melvins, who made me a few compilation tapes such as Black Flag, Flipper, and MDC. The first punk rock song I heard was "Damage II" by Black Flag. It was too extreme and it alienated the majority of the youth who paid it any attention. No one could understand it. I was completely blown away. I found my calling. There were so many things going on at once, because it expressed the way I felt socially, politically, emotionally. I cut my hair, and started trying to play my own style of punk rock and guitar: fast, with a lot of distortion.'
  41. Fear – The Record (1982) includes “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place” in his journals.
  42. Public Image Ltd – The Flowers of Romance (1981) “This is a great record, it’s just totally uncompromising. It’s a bunch of drum beats, Johnny Rotten yelling over it all, but it works somehow.”
  43. Public Enemy – It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back (1988) “I would never attempt rap music. There's no sense in it," Cobain says. "The people that do rap music do it just fine. I'm usually offended by people like Vanilla Ice. The white man has ripped off the black man for long enough. They should just leave the rap music to the African-Americans 'cause they do it so well."
  44. Marine Girls – Beach Party (1982) "Tobi Vail told me that her and Kurt [Cobain] used to lie awake all night listening to Beach Party.” - Tracey Thorn
  45. David Bowie – The Man Who Sold the World (1970)
  46. Wipers – Is This Real? (1980) Yes it is. Greg Sage was pretty much the romantic, quiet, visionary kind of guy. What more can I say about them? They started Seattle grunge rock in Portland, 1977."
  47. Wipers – Youth of America (1981) "The Wipers were a Portland punk band who were started in the late Seventies by Greg Sage and released maybe four or five albums. The first two were totally classic, and influenced the Melvins and all the other Seattle bands. Theyre another band I tried to assimilate. Their songs were so good. They're the most innovative punk rock band that started the 'Seattle sound' like 15 years too early. We learnt everything from 'THE WIPERS'. They were playing a mixture of punk and hard rock at a time when nobody cared."
  48. Wipers – Over the Edge (1983) “I got this in Europe.” — If there is a “Seattle Sound” it came from Portland, Oregon in the early 80’s by a three piece band named The Wipers.
  49. Mazzy Star – She Hangs Brightly (1990) “making a friend like Stephen Pavlovic - our Australian tour promoter who sent me a Mazzy Star LP on vinyl”
  50. Swans – Young God (1984)
Honorable Mentions Meat Puppets II (1984) Smithereens -Especially For You (1986) Black Sabbath - Masters of Reality (1971) Public Image Ltd -(1978)

2020.10.26 23:33 Nameless_Archon Thirty-Eight Days of Dwarf: Day 26 (Extra Life 2020!) 7pm EDT!

(We've just embarked anew for some new viewers - come out and watch us take it from the top!)
----------------------------------------Who's this guy?----------------------------------------
Hey guys!
I'm Nameless_Archon, and I provide tutorials on how to play Dwarf Fortress every year (health permitting) while I try to raise money for sick kids.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What in the name of the glowing pits is this about?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is time to return to our roots, and so we shall: Thirty. Eight. Days. Of. Dwarf.
Starting on 10/1 and proceeding through the Extra Life 2019 Game Day event on 11/7, I'm going to stream and teach what little I know.
Dwarves. Every. Single. Day.
----------------------------------------But why?----------------------------------------
I like to do things when there's more than one reason to do them:
-------------------------So how's this going to work?-------------------------
We've started out like I usually do - streaming a basic, sustainable fortress. However, the reality of the situation is that thirty-three days of Basic Base Building 101 is going to probably bore the pants off people (including me) and I don't really want things to be boring. So we're going to have to do a few things along the way to try to spice things up, and along the way likely reveal that I'm just an average player like everyone else. (Dwarves dying of starvation and frostbite on a glacier? Likelier than you think!)
Basically, I'll stream in the evenings most days for a few hours. On Saturdays and Sundays, we'll generally run a little longer, but I'm going to stream every day until 11/7 even if it means I have to get up at 3am to do it. On 11/7, we're going to culminate with a 24-hour long livestream, as part of the worldwide Extra Life charity event.
I don't use Twitter, Facebook, etc. and people may want to donate to Extra Life 2020, even if they're not supporting my efforts directly. Feel free to share my donations link, or to direct people to the charity's main page.
--------------------------So what's in it for viewers?---------------------------
Well, aside from helping to support my local children's hospital (good vibes, ho!) I'll be pushing out tutorial game(s) live on stream as part of the event. Your donations are a spur in that direction applied to my backside. You can even attend the event with me, since I'll be broadcasting live on my stream the whole time!
...but if that's not enough for you?
Anonymous or not, everyone will know you're supporting kids that need it.
If you're not naming him something awful, it'll even happen. You're welcome to request a trade for the dwarf, if I have one suitable to match it! If we run more than one fort, donator dwarves will show up in all forts after the one where you donated!
SEVERAL DONATORS HAVE CLAIMED A NAMED MIGRANT FOR ALL 38 DAYS. Are you next?
If none are available, I'll have to use a migrant. (We call this 'Early cat catches the dwarf'. Move fast.) As above, if you donate on the first fort of our event, we'll put that same dwarf into the starting seven every fort thereafter!
SOME OF THE STARTING SEVEN HAVE ALREADY BEEN CLAIMED! Will yours be next?
Want me to embark on a reanimating evil biome with a necromancer next door? It's your call. I'll save the current stream fort, and start a new one on the spot with settings as close to your request as I can manage on the fly, and run with it until it dies or I do. If someone else flips the script on you before I finish, you can either donate again to flip if back or wait for their fort to exhaust before I resume yours. Your choice. (We call this one 'Last dwarf gets the sock.')
Some limits on this are required for sanity's sake. Let's talk first.
At some point, I'll get back to the stream fort, but for a truly generous donation, I'm 100% willing to give up some time and show off anything you'd like, live and on the spot. You can find a link to my Steam profile (which contains a list of potential games I could probably get set up for streaming) here if you're considering this. (And if it's something we can do multiplayer, we can even try that too, which would be a stream first.)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wait....Thirty days of tutorials for Dwarf Fortress as part of a charity drive?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thirty-eight days, actually. It was the wife's idea - she suggested that you folks might like to get a newer version of my original tutorial, and that this might be a good avenue to combine hardcore Dwarf Fortress fanatics, who are already a generous and supporting community, with a charitable cause to support. I didn't have much luck finding a flaw in her reasoning, so I bit the bullet and advertised it at work, too, despite my trepidation regarding drawing personal attention there. (Last year, they contributed only a sixth of our total collection, because the players and viewers - people like you and I - were far more generous!)
------------------------- New and Uncertain Players: ----------------------
We'll be putting the newest version of the starter pack and Dwarf Fortress through its paces as we (attempt to) start a new tutorial series for v 0.47.04. (Note: If there's an update and it seems relatively bug free, I'll try for the newer version, but I'm aiming this at newer players, so trying to ride the cutting edge isn't really in the cards.)
Past demonstrations (From v.34 to present) have included glaciers, deserts, sites with necromancer towers adjacent (like Day 1 this year...) as well as discussion on how to influence worldgen to get what you want. Our first one will be a more sedate embark, designed and chosen for relatively newer players, and we'll start with worldgen as though we're looking at a fresh install.
Goal:
My goal for "Tutorial Night" is to walk new players through an embark using the DF Starter Pack. (Explicit thanks to PeridexisErrant and others who I admire for their dedication, which is studded with perseverance and ringed with bands of my gratitude! Without those efforts, a tutorial for installing and configuring everything for the game and its add-ons would be a sizable task unto itself. I've actually devoted many hours of stream to demonstrating it 'the hard way'!)
Along the way, I'll provide examples of the setup and tools I use to play Dwarf Fortress, as a guidepost for new players.
What I'm really trying to do is give new players a reference point they can come back to on how to set up a world, embark on a site, and stand a reasonable chance of employing a fairly basic and standard design to build a workable fortress wherever they may need to start one.
Stream Info:
The channel rules are simple: Respect Wheaton's Law and you'll be fine. Just don't expect the content of the broadcast to be 100% suitable for children; Sorry, kids. I'm much too low-brow for a guaranteed clean broadcast. Get your parents' permission, etc etc.
If you have questions you might like answered with a demonstration, and not simply a quick post in the weekly questions thread, I'm your guy. I'll do my best to demonstrate just about anything you can think up - aquifers, megaprojects and magma pistons aside. (Minecarts may get covered, but don't expect anything computational or timer based - I'm a casual player, not a dwarven mechanical engineer.)
You can view the stream here, as well as on the donations page for Extra Life.
Later Goals:
At some point in this fortress, I'll walk players through my 'most commonly used' tools in DFHack and in the utilities that come packaged in the DF Starter Pack and how I use them to construct a simple, basic, and tightly run fortress that can support as many dwarves as my PC can haul, defend itself against all comers, and handle just about anything. I also will demonstrate Quickfort at some point for those who've never taken advantage of it!
We'll certainly touch on Dwarf Therapist, and discuss how I use it to control the behavior and organization of my ants dwarves, including a demonstration of custom professions in action. Sound will be provided by Soundsense so that you're not listening to me play in silence during any lulls, and the off-topic interaction between the audience and myself tends toward the lively (and often ribald).
New players, your questions (no matter how 'silly' you may think they are) are 100% welcome, as they're the whole point to the broadcast! Join us and ask them!
If you can't make it (or are not willing to brave my often vulgar displays of unsuitability) and still have questions you can't seem to figure out, post them in the DF Bi-Weekly Questions Thread for this week and I'll do my best to help you overcome your obstacles, if the expert players haven't gotten there first!
(Obligatory: Yesss... Join usss... Join the Dark Side... We have cookies!)
------------------------ More advanced players: ------------------------------
On that note, experienced players who want to follow along are certainly welcome (and often manage to teach me a thing or two, directly or not) but the main thrust of the stream will be to help new players get over the introductory hump to start playing at a deeper level, so you may find yourself paying less attention to the pace of the stream and more attention to your fellow audience members. I do love having a few veterans show up, though, because my fortress designs always get better when I'm shown a method I've never used!
--------------------------------Parting Words----------------------------------------
Please don't go. The children need you.
Please donate if you are able.
On behalf of Riley and Extra Life: Thank you, in advance, for your generosity!

2020.10.26 23:18 WkdWest What's the weirdest/most obscure/most mysterious book you've ever found in a used bookstore???

I work in a used bookstore so I come across a LOT of weird stuff. A lot of it is just dated but every once in a while I stumble on a real mystery.
While trying to identify the price of this strange book (pictured below) I went down what felt like a weird rabbit hole and I still don't know where this book came from, what the price is, who really wrote it, or why we have it on our shelves. I traced some of the names associated to an artist on band camp but this book is literally un-googleable. I think its self published, and maybe even was sneakily left here by the author.
Anyway, I want to know about some of the weirdest or more mysterious books you've found!!

2020.10.26 22:46 tightlippedfart S/O cheated on me, what to do next..

S/O cheated on me, what to do next..
Ok so my S/O (female) randomly wanted to break up after almost a year of dating. This really took me by surprise because everything had been going really well. A week ago we went to a haunted corn maze and it was really fun. I thought everything was ok. After calmly trying to understand why she had come to this decision she finally revealed that she had cheated on me a few times. I really wish I had asked when it started. I asked with who and she said she didn’t want to tell me due to me going and hunting them down. The fucked up part about it is I had no reaction to this news. I still don’t a few days later. I felt like a female dog for still asking her if we can work things out after hearing about it. She was crying saying things like I don’t deserve you and that I’m the best boyfriend she’s ever had. I was calm the whole time. I even joked with her and got her to laugh a few times. We hugged each other for a few minutes and I left. Now i just feel like I’m in denial or something. Why do I not care that she cheated? In the past this would have been a huge insecurity for me. Am I fucking slang term for male who is submissive that’s rhymes with luck? I still feel like there’s plenty of emotions I’m hiding that are going to come fuck me up later but for now I’m fine. Maybe it’s because it hasn’t fully sank in that I may never see this girl again. I know that any many other thoughts will really fuck me up but I just can’t feel them right now. My last breakup before this caused me to go in a huge emotional downward spiral for a few months. I’m afraid that will happen again and I’m surprised it’s not. She’s posted a bunch of sad songs from my favorite band on social media. Posting about how she wants to be a better person.. I think she feels extremely guilty. She also hasn’t changed her cover photo of us. She hid the relationship status but hasn’t deleted it since you can still go and see it. I know these are false things to cling onto. Maybe the fact that she is grieving as well as me has softened the blow. The fucked up thing is I still want to make things work. I feel like I should reach out to her since she is going through a rougher time then I am. My natural caring self makes me want to help her. What the fuck is wrong with me? Shouldn’t I be more pissed off.. when will I realize what has happened it’s been like 4 days now. If I want to reconcile should I contact her or give it time because there’s nothing I can do. She’s the one who cheated on me..

2020.10.26 19:58 lostinamuddle Notifying a change in date

Hello everyone!
Like lots of us, my wedding was cancelled back in May. We have a new date now, and I'm just wondering (from those of you who have gone through this)... What was the process like contacting the council to notify a change in date? Did you need to have the bands read again? Did you need to pay again? Was there a time limit for the new date? (ours is in February and I'm worried its not enough time)
TIA! Xx

2020.10.26 17:52 Count2Zero First time with a band

I’ve been playing for just over 2 years now. With one exception (a 15-minute Christmas concert in my town last year, with zero rehearsal, where I wasn’t even given the right music to practice), I’ve never played with anyone except my music teacher.
I saw an ad in the paper recently by a guitarist and a drummer who were looking to start a new rock band. I sent them a message letting them know I was interested, but I’m still pretty much a newbie.
The guitarist gave me a call a couple of weeks back and said that they would like to get together – the two of them (guitar, drums), me (bass) and a singer. We discussed a few songs that we’d like to play and found a date when we were all available (this past Saturday).
The set list was “A Wind Cries Mary” by Jimi Hendrix, “Hush” by Deep Purple, “Tush” by ZZ Top, and “Jumpin Jack Flash” by the Rolling Stones. I had about 1 week to learn all these songs.
I got the basic song structures by checking the tabs on Songsterr, then transcribing them into Guitar Pro for myself. I then made myself a cheat-sheet with the different parts of the songs, something like this:
Intro: [A# / G# / F / G]
Riff: [C C C A# CCCC A#] [C C C A# CCCC G]
Hook: [G#-C-C# D#/A#] [A#-D-D# F/C]
Intro – (walk G-A#-B into) Riff x 6 – Hook – Riff x 2 – Hook – etc.
By Saturday, I had pretty much nailed “A Wind Cries Mary” and “Tush” (a simple 12-bar blues shuffle). “Jumpin Jack Flash” was also pretty solid. I was still a bit worried about “Hush” because of the speed of the riff.
Of course, the guitarist wanted to start with “Hush”, but we agreed to start with something a bit slower to warm up, so we took a crack at “Jumpin Jack Flash”.
Again, I’ve never played with a live drummer before, and I was nervous. But once we got started, it was … AWESOME!
Part of the time I was making eye contact with the drummer, trying to lock into his rhythm. And part of the time, I was watching the guitarist or singer, listening to what they were doing and anticipating the chord changes.
We got around to “Hush” and ran through it a bunch of times. We didn’t have a keyboard, so the guitarist played a solo while the drummer and I kept the groove. During part of the solo, I simplified the bass riff down to simply playing 4 quarter notes, and the song still rocked. When the guitar solo ended, I pushed out the whole riff.
When we had run through all the songs we had discussed, we just sort of jammed for a while – the guitarist started playing “Whole Lotta Love”, and I then improvised the bass riff as the drummer supported us. I was really surprised when I got home and checked out JPJ’s original bass line – I wasn’t that far off! (I played the riff by pedaling between D and E, while JPJ’s original pedals between B, D and E.).
I made a few mistakes along the way, especially during “Hush” (the transition from the riff to the hook), but it wasn’t bad.
I don’t have a question, I just want to thank this community for giving me the confidence to take the next step and reach out to other musicians!
I feel like I’ve just lost my virginity again, and this time it was a lot less embarrassing!

2020.10.26 14:59 MaxiellaDJ (20F) Need a new friend

I don't want to go into detail, because I don't want to freak anyone out, but I just need to list a few of the things I'm going through right now:
  1. I haven't seen my parents in months, and my Dad just tested positive for COVID.
  2. My best friend/neighbor moved to college, doesn't text or call, and canceled the one lunch I had scheduled with her.
  3. All my old friends I've pushed away because they were toxic and stressful for me to be around.
  4. My mother doesn't check in on me very often, she'll go days/weeks without texting or calling
  5. My best friend/boyfriend who I've known since preschool and had a crush on for 8 years growing up in middle school, threw me to the ground with his hands around my neck during an argument last night. We had been dating for about a year. He had started to help me heal and was the love of my life, and now I'm in more pain than when I met him. This is the first night that we've fought and he's never texted or called.
  6. My mental health is suffering, I'm tired, I'm exhausted. I feel like my light is gone, that it's finally dwindled.
  7. I've lost my confidence in my beauty and in my abilities.
I need someone who'll play video games with me when I get home from work/school, I need to meet new people. I need a distraction. I need someone who will support me and encourage me because I need to figure out how to love myself. I'm emotional, but I'm kind and I care about people. I'm a great listener and I'm usually the Mom/Therapist of the group. My favorite video game is Stardew Valley, but I can play anything from League of Legends to Roblox. I've recently started playing Sniper Elite on the Xbox. I have a PC, Xbox, and a Switch Lite. My PC is pretty small so I'm limited on the games I can play, but I'm open to all kinds of stuff. I'm a really great builder on Minecraft, my houses are always unique. No, I have not played Among Us yet. I'm a writer, I write my own stories/books. Which becomes super handy for rp. I'm a very elaborate roleplayer and enjoy making new characters/plot lines. I'm still learning DnD, still very much a beginner but I'm super open to learning. I'm pretty creative and crafty, although I'm still learning how to draw, and still want to learn how to paint. But when it comes to color & design I'm a 10/10. (I want to become an Interior Designer) My favorite color is pink. I have a pretty wide range in music but my favorite band is Caravan Palace (their music beyond Lone Digger is absolutely brilliant and amazing)
There's a lot more about me, but I don't want to make this post any longer than it is, but if you want to know more about me, I'd be more than happy to answer any questions you have!
Thank you for reading.

2020.10.26 12:16 JADlloyd What's a sad fact you learn after being a long time kpop fan?

Being a fan since 2011 here's a few things that makes me depressed if I think too much about:
In fact the only girl group I could think of that had a "happy ending" was Sistar where they announced they will end the group at this date, had a concert and the members are still in good standing with each other. Produce groups are also in this category but it's almost sadder coz they're disbanding but the members don't want to and also they never quite reach that same popularity for most of them.
I don't know who pooped in my cereal this morning and I'm in this melancholic/angry state so I apologize if I made your morning worse.

2020.10.26 11:51 CrimsonCassetteTape KFD Album Overview/Discussion

Since we’ve gone through all of the songs from KFD for the song of the week, I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on the album overall.
By the mid 90’s, W.A.S.P. had begun to fall into obscurity. Classic Metal was on the decline as more and more new genres began to take shape. Nu Metal, Grunge, and Industrial were the leaders of the rock music landscape at this time, and quite frankly, there was no room for acts of the past who refused to reinvent themselves. Blackie himself had even considered putting an end to the name W.A.S.P., and embarking on a solo career to leave the stigmas that were attached with W.A.S.P. in the past.
Sometime in 1996, Blackie reconnected with Chris Holmes and the two of them began working on new music that would eventually become the KFD record. Both Chris and Blackie had gone through some dark times, and were in pretty bad spots in their lives. Both had been through some tough breakups and both were down on their luck when it came to their careers. Luckily, they managed to use this anger and frustration as fuel and poured it all into the making of their new record.
Released in April of 1997, KFD became one of the most unique and polarizing records of W.A.S.P.’s career. For starters, the album opens with some noisy electronic synths as opposed to typical rock guitar that many fans had come to expect from the band. This album was the first in over a decade to feature bizarre and “shocking” lyrics as well, although this time around, Blackie used these lyrics as a critique on society as opposed to being shocking for the sake of it. There a definitely some very creative lyrics to be found here. I wouldn’t say that they are the best that Blackie has ever done, but they’re good for what they are. The atmosphere of the album is extremely dark, and almost feels like the soundtrack to a horror movie.
This album marks the return of Chris Holmes after being out of the band for nearly 7 years. Honestly, I don’t feel that this album does a great job at showcasing his talents. Yes, there are some great riffs and solos to be found on the record, but a lot of times they get buried by synths and other electronic sounds. That being said, it’s still pretty obvious that he’s playing on the album, as his signature guitar tone and playing style is present. W.A.S.P. contributor Stet Howland laid down the drum tracks on the album, and had become an official member around this time as well. His playing on this album is as you would expect from him. Plenty of drum fills and overall just keeping a nice beat that the song rides to. This album also marks the first appearance of now long time W.A.S.P. bassist Mike Duda. Apparently, Mike and Chris had known each other, and when it came time for W.A.S.P. to head into the studio, they needed a bass player. Chris invited Mike to come for an audition and the rest is history. Mike Duda is a great bassist and although a lot of his work gets buried in the mix on this album he’s still a great contributor and added a lot to the record as well as the live shows. And then we have Blackie Lawless. I’m a little bit torn on his performance here to be honest. On one hand, the fire and anger in his voice is all real. There’s no doubt that he is speaking from the heart, but at the same time the fact that he had to use effects on his vocals so heavily is kind of off putting. As a vocalist, Blackie is known for his raw, “whisky and cigarette” style vocals and covering it up with effects is just strange. I guess that it fits the vibe of the album, but there are a few instances where he doesn’t sound at all like himself.
Musically this album is pretty strange. As stated earlier, Blackie decided to move towards a more industrial sound, and because of that we get a lot of fuzzy electronic sounds layering the entire album. Most of the songs on here are good, but I personally feel that they would’ve been better had they removed the industrial elements. Some of the standouts are My Tortured Eyes, Take The Addiction, and The Horror. Only the title track was released as a single, although it didn’t receive much airplay. This is also the first album where they did not release a music video. The packaging on this album is very cool, with a flip case that opens to reveal the contents of the refrigerator on the front.
The tour for this album was very successful. The return of Chris Holmes as well as the return of the stage show had definitely sparked interest in the band again and got people to purchase tickets to the shows. The live shows during this era were extremely intense. Some of the on stage antics that were present included Blackie “raping” both a nun as well as a Marilyn Manson doll, slicing a pig in half, and the return of drinking blood from a skull. These live performances created controversy, but ultimately it got people talking about W.A.S.P. again and it proved that they could still keep up with the younger acts of the time. It was a huge part of the reason why people regained interesting in the band again around this time.
During this era, W.A.S.P. also managed to record and release their second live album. Double Live Assassins was released in 1998 and did a wonderful job at capturing the atmosphere of a W.A.S.P. show. Unlike Live... In The Raw which was released about 10 years earlier, this record features hardly any studio overdubs and is a pure live experience. One other thing that stands out about this album is the songs that were played live from the KFD album. These recordings prove that underneath all of the electronics, there are classic W.A.S.P. tunes to be found. A great live album that is a must listen for any W.A.S.P. fan.
The KFD era is rather polarizing amongst fans. You either love it or hate it. The change in sound drove a lot of older fans away, but also managed to capture the interest of a whole new group of fans. Personally, I’m a bit on the fence about this one. The songs aren’t necessarily bad, and I understand that the band had to make this record in order to stay relevant and survive, but a lot of times it comes off feeling insincere. It feels as if Blackie was going in this direction just to chase a trend as opposed to recording music that he actually wanted to. I think that this is evident in the fact that almost none of these songs have been played live in nearly 20 years. The album is a novelty that feels dated and lacks the staying power of most of their other albums. I know that many people claim that this is their favorite W.A.S.P. album and that’s great, but for me it’s not what I’m looking for in a W.A.S.P. album. If I want to hear industrial music I’ll listen to Ministry, not W.A.S.P.
All in all, this album was a huge success for W.A.S.P., and no matter what your thoughts are about it, it ultimately ended up saving their career. It revitalized them and gave them the boost that would propel them into the next stage of their career.
Best Song: My Tortured Eyes
Worst Song: Kill Your Pretty Face
Personal Rating: 6/10

2020.10.26 11:49 rosesandfunkopops I’m still angry at the guy that played me, what do I do?

I fell for a singer in a band. He just knew what to say to me to make me want him and he knew how to manipulate me to get nudes out of me.
I spent a year and a half trying to let go of him but he kept coming back into my life every time I started to show any growth. He didn’t like me to be happy without him it seems.
It was all internet communication as he lives about 3 hours train journey away. Everything about us was his idea and I agreed to meet him for a date a few times but he would never commit. He always used the excuse he was busy with his bands.
He was quite happy to keep asking me for nudes and treat me like his girlfriend then ghost me. When he showed lack of interest I was straight up with him I asked what we were, what’s going on? Feels like you’re taking advantage and just want sex from me (he asked a lot for sex but he knew I wanted more than that)
He would get all defensive, blame me for his actions and problems then up his game and treat me really well again like I was his girlfriend, dangling the carrot in front of me.
I was fresh out of an emotionally abusive relationship so I know now he preyed on me as I often saw on social media he was out and about with other people. He sent me the same dick pic that he sent me previously so I know he’d sexted a lot of people to be able to forget who he’s sent a pic of his penis to. He begged me to forgive him after this so I did.
He was the only person I’ve ever in my life sent nudes to. I was in a very vulnerable place after my ex and I thought this guy was the one and had come to save me. He played that part well at least. He knew everything I felt for him and wanted and he just played on it.
Until I was sick of his treatment and confronted him for the last time. I was so down. He said he’d been on a date with someone and I thought how cruel. How cruel to keep me here knowing how I feel whilst he goes on a date with someone else. He accused me of guilt tripping him but I know that wasn’t the case. He’d been silencing me for a long time to take from me and accuse me of the things he was doing.
I know a part of me is upset at myself for letting him play me and not trusting my gut. But after being abused it wasn’t so easy to make my own decisions.
Anyway I finally let go and got a counsellor to try and make sense of it all. I have done well but I just can’t shake this anger I have. I want to forgive but every time I forgave him in the past I let him back in and he hurt me and I lost myself. I can’t go through this again.
I did make things public about what happened and he accused me of ruining his career. But I know by telling the truth I couldn’t ruin anything, that was all him.
So what’s your thoughts? How do I forgive? How do I get rid of all this anger?

2020.10.26 11:48 somelittlesunflower3 My boyfriend find everything I do annoying

Throwaway. Sorry for the format, I am on phone. Me(22F) and my bf(21M) have been together for 2 years and we live together.
He told me again today that I am annoying. Whenever I try to make a joke, I am annoying. I try to motivate him when he is down, I am annoying.
Today, i asked him to clean the bathroom as it was his turn(we share responsibilities). In the meantime I was cleaning our room and I was busy. He asked me where our desinfectant was and I told him idk and to look for it under the sink.
He replied with "omg, you are so annoying, why couldnt you just look for it?".
I remember one time I was really excited about a concert and told him about it, asking if he wants to go. I told him about the tickets price, the date, what I will wear and the band. He called me annoying that time too. What am I doing wrong?

2020.10.26 10:13 rosesandfunkopops I’m still angry at a guy that played me. What do I do?

I fell for a singer in a band. He just knew what to say to me to make me want him and he knew how to manipulate me to get nudes out of me.
I spent a year and a half trying to let go of him but he kept coming back into my life every time I started to show any growth. He didn’t like me to be happy without him it seems.
It was all internet communication as he lives about 3 hours train journey away. Everything about us was his idea and I agreed to meet him for a date a few times but he would never commit. He always used the excuse he was busy with his bands.
He was quite happy to keep asking me for nudes and treat me like his girlfriend then ghost me. When he showed lack of interest I was straight up with him I asked what we were, what’s going on? Feels like you’re taking advantage and just want sex from me (he asked a lot for sex but he knew I wanted more than that)
He would get all defensive, blame me for his actions and problems then up his game and treat me really well again like I was his girlfriend, dangling the carrot in front of me.
I was fresh out of an emotionally abusive relationship so I know now he preyed on me as I often saw on social media he was out and about with other people. He sent me the same dick pic that he sent me previously so I know he’d sexted a lot of people to be able to forget who he’s sent a pic of his penis to. He begged me to forgive him after this so I did.
He was the only person I’ve ever in my life sent nudes to. I was in a very vulnerable place after my ex and I thought this guy was the one and had come to save me. He played that part well at least. He knew everything I felt for him and wanted and he just played on it.
