    I used to really love metal music. Like, been a full on cringey metalhead kid, with longhair, going to underground gigs etc. But all of that sounds like shit to me now.
    Granted, I still love classic stuff, and I'm very excited for any new Profound Lore or similar label release, but overall, I'n fed up with metal.
    These days I listen mostly to techno and 80s/90s electronic music. Youtube is wonderful for that.

    But in general, there are only a few genres of music that I find nothing good in. I listen to most stuff, depending on my current mood.

    I wake up and there's ice outside. Nice. I really love slipping and sliding everywhere.

    My taste in metal music is kind of stuck in the late 80's, early 90's with the various thrash metal bands. My avatar image is from a record back cover image from German band Sodom, which I still like. They made songs about war etc., and are still around I think. Them and Napalm Death are the rare old school bands who's sound hasn't really aged much, to me at least.

    I have a first pressing of that LP.
    That being said, while Sodom is still pretty awesome, my tastes have changed a bit. I still like thrash, a lot, but listen to it rarely.

    This is a shower designed for Belgian nuthouse in 19th century for calming down the nutters. Note that two big nutters on left and right are not amused. There's a small happy nutter sitting in a bucket though:

    I love the panic around this.
    I mean, this isn't new. We had snow before. But after a very dry summer, Class A retards are coming out of their holes and proclaim that this is compensation and super dangerous and that thawing snow magically gets heavier and all the people in the Alps are about to die and we need to ban cars and shit to keep this from happening.

    You are exactly where I have been for some time. Metal just got so fucking repetitive with the same vibe over and over. Anger does not sustain.

    I love, and I mean LOVE, DOOM! The game itself is the crowning achievement of id Software and it's one of the best games of 2010-2019! Plus, one of the best reboots, if not, the BEST reboot of all time!!
    Sure you got multiplayer (which is good) and also SnapMap (which I suck at creating my own mode!), but the shining pinnacle has got to be its Single-Player Campaign. It is a bright example on how DOOM does right! Especially when it pays homage to its classic years as hidden secret doors. For this game has what the original had but better, including fast and brutal gameplay, intense soundtrack, maps infested with demons, item pick-ups, and hidden secrets waiting to be discovered, and last but not least... THE DOOM SLAYER!!!
    This is id Software's triumphant return to the FPS genre, but done exactly right, and thanks to Bethesda Softworks for helping and distributing the game in its entirety, I'm sure it's in good hands!

    (then suddenly, ACTIVISION invades the post!)
    ACTIVISION: "What about me, huh? I brought you guys DOOM 3! At least give ME credit on that!"
    Outsider: "ACTIVISION, please shut the fuck up, would you kindly?"
    ACTIVISION: "But...but why are so harsh to me? Isn't that enough for all of you?!"
    Outsider: (sigh) Okay... First, id Software made the damn game because of John McCormack as for you just published the game to the public and Second, the game is disappointing as shit. Despite being successful with the sales and critics, the game itself isn't a DOOM game, and fans can see why.
    ACTIVISION: "Oh, come on! The game is AMAZING in every way possible, I mean, that's the reason why we contacted Universal Pictures to make a film version of DOOM in order to cash in our success!"
    Outsider: "It bombed at the Box Office."
    ACTIVISION: "~It has Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the movie!~"
    Outsider: "~But nobody cares, because everybody hated it like how Konami took a shit on most of its franchises to no regard whatsoever!~"
    ACTIVISION: "You know what? Fuck you, at least I got Call of Duty and Destiny, while handling the remastered versions on Crash and Spyro. So do yourself a favor and---"
    Outsider: "Kill Myself?"
    ACTIVISION: "No, not that autistic or some shit... I'd consider you to go FUCK yourself, that's all.
    Outsider: "Ah, okay then. So, ~you're still planning on giving Crash and Spyro their own movies, hmmm~?"
    ACTIVISION: "Fuck You."
    (ACTIVISION left the post with great annoyance!)


    Overall, I am so hyped up for DOOM ETERNAL when it comes out! It's going to be glorious... GLORIOUSLY BADASS AS FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU---
    (The Outsider fainted due to the excitement in which he cannot handle...
    just kidding! He's fucking dead, now trapped in Hell by those damn demons!)

    its still unforgivable how wimpy the shotgun feels but yeah DOOM 2016 was pretty fucking great.

    anyways this is not a thread about doom.

    But isn't this a general discussion of DOOM?
    Because I think it's appropriately fitting for me to post about DOOM,
    as long as I don't mention or text about "Fallout" on this thread.

    The thread is to talk about whatever you want, not just about the Doom games. The title is just a play on words.

    It had many good moments, but I found it kind of disjointed - as well as very un-rewatchable. A lot of the aesthetics were very deliberately uncomfortable - as is typical with any of Jhonen Vasquez' work, really, "Johnny the homicidal maniac" isn't exactly upbeat reading, despite being inherently humorous, and this carried over into Zim

    But yeah, it had a lot of funny gags, and kind of popularized the quirky random pointless lulz with Gir (which in turn seems heavily carried over from his comic strip "Happy noodle boy" which I thoroughly enjoyed back-when, because of its completely nihilistic anarchistic fuck-you-for-even-giving-this-a-shot kind of humor :D)

    Oh, well I didn't know that. But still, at least I'm just talking about the reboot, that's all! :lalala:
