tl;dr, thread for organising the MDF trip. so far Alden, Joel, Aiden, and me are confirmed. I'll start looking into hotel rooms later on today or over the weekend as I'm planning on leaving Colorado in the next 24hrs to head back to Arizona (and California) for a couple of weeks.

Also it'd be nice to figure out how many days we plan on staying, and whether or not we (all of us or some of us) opt for full passes or partial. Would be nice to have a couple of days outside the fest to rub elbows and get wrecked, you know what I mean?

here's link for tickets to mdf: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/maryland-deathfest-2017-tickets-26276287082

there's at least half a dozen hotels in the vicinity of the venues, it'd be best to book ASAP because it's a fair bet that they'll be booked up completely very soon. from what little i've dug up, we're looking at roughly the neighborhood of $700+/- for a week stay (so far I've only looked at Holiday Inn, though) in a single room.

also found this one, seems to be the most inexpensive: [LINK]

yeah, that was likely the problem. i've only ever done psychedelics with the same two people, who i trust completely. but also it's a huge factor to make sure that you're comfortable taking the trip in the first place, in terms of emotional/mental well-being.

still haven't seen HoC, but Spacey is one of the best actors alive imo.

started watching The Leftovers, on the second episode presently. It's much better than I was expecting it to be. The premise is that a percentage of the human population one day suddenly vanishes without a trace. Essentially it's the christian "rapture." As the title suggests, the series details the aftermath of the event, picking up three years later. During that time a strange "cult" of mute chainsmokers has formed, a predatory quasi-messianic figure has started emotionally "healing" politicians, and society in general has begun to gradually disintegrate (ethically and otherwise). It's pretty surreal in some parts, largely due to some disturbing events and imagery that's presented in an incidental and nonchalant manner.

Worth checking out, imo.

well what were the circumstances of your trip, and what kind of dosage are we talking here?

Black Metal / WOE - New album
« on: February 01, 2017, 11:10:41 PM »
Dunno what the consensus is on these guys around here. I know a lot of people like to group them into the whole hipster scarf black metal thing, but their first and third albums are actually really good (especially the first album). Anyhow, they've got a new album, Hope Attrition, scheduled to drop on March 17th. Invisible Oranges just premiered a track (featuring Brooks Wilson of the band Crypt Sermon) from the record. Obviously it's more in line with their more recent material, and probably won't do anything to change the mind of detractors regarding their opinion of the band.

That being said, I think it's more in line with bands out of the Chicago and general mid-west scene (e.g. Wolvhammer) rather than bands like Deafheaven, etc.

You can check out the stream of the track (and more general background) here: http://www.invisibleoranges.com/woe-the-din-of-the-mourning/

like havok said, they're really dense, at least the first one is, since he pretty much dumps a metric fuckton of information onto you and you have to sink or swim. i tried giving the audiobook a shot, but that was even worse since there's no backtracking necessarily. it's rewarding though once you get a foothold. the portion where he introduces the mages and the bridgeburners (near the beginning, kind of) is probably the easiest part to get acclimated, at least for me it was. you'll see what i mean if/when you pick up the books.
tl;dr, totes oughta get on it.

CoP is pretty decent as well, especially with mods.

And to be fair, despite being linear, 2033 almost captures the same atmosphere. once you separate the two series' it becomes easier to stomach.

The Metro duology is/was on sale from Humble for $5 so I sprung on it. About fifteen minutes into the second one. So far so good, albeit pretty linear. Makes me wanna go reboot STALKER.

General discussion / Re: Post You Are Vinyl & Cassette Collection
« on: January 31, 2017, 12:25:50 AM »
I don't do vinyl so much any more, primarily because my lifestyle makes it impractical, and secondly because it's turning into something of a gimmick and almost like an excuse to chuck around seven different "limited" DLP pressings for $25 each when the material in reality is just a twenty minute EP.

Fuck, Urfaust just put out a split 12" LP that has only TWO songs on it and clocks in at about fifteen minutes.

It's oversaturation of the market, but I guess as long as it doesn't affect me, I don't have much room to bitch.

I think tapes will always be acceptable though, because of how inexpensive they are to manufacture and distribute. And like Knightfall said, the fuzz is a nice factor.

News / General Events / Re: FedEx Employee vs Flag Burners
« on: January 31, 2017, 12:21:49 AM »
I think it's bad form to burn the flag of the nation you're a citizen of, but that being said, of course one has the right to do it. However they also ought to accept the consequences of those actions. Freedom of speech exists, but if you yell "fuck niggers," in the middle of downtown Detroit, you're probably gonna have a bad time. Likewise burning a flag.
I don't get the point of flagburning, other than to show you're really pissed off, by golly. And in that situation, there are other more constructive ways to channel that anger. It's childish, but considering the sort of people who burn flags, and the retarded rhetoric they spout, it's not surprising.

I'll have to wait until I get back to Arizona before I post mine, but most of my collection consists of CDs. I'm planning on starting to expand my tape collection since tapes are so inexpensive, but ironically I haven't any money right now.

Jelly of those Lord Wind and AFOS records. Do you have any criteria for what you purchase on vinyl?

Black Metal / Narrow Pathe (members of Leviathan, the body, etc)
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:29:27 AM »
This is a collaborative project between members of The Body and Sandworm, with contributions from Stevie Floyd (Dark Castle) and Jef Whitehead (aka Wrest of Leviathan).

It's something of an under-the-radar release, apparently it came out back in 2015 but I only heard about it a couple days ago. It's got elements of noise and punk rock in addition to the American brand of black metal. It was released on tape by Stevie and Jef's label DEVOUT but it's been sold out for a good long time. You can stream it or purchase it from bandcamp via the link below.
