They attract losers in $8k shitboxes down this way. Wonga Park would be ok, but get on the Highway and some clown will try it. Worst is tradie 'peak hour' - those blokes can't help themselves. I had to go to Dandy for work last week and it happened down there too. Guess can't expect much from the dregs of society. Not really sold on Maseratis - don't think they hold their value and in my experience they attract wannabe gangsters usually.
I’m adding Blue Audi RS3 drivers to the ‘flog’ list. A couple near me seem to take it as challenge when they’re 80-100m behind you to see how quickly they can get up your ass. And then they sit there, so close you can’t read their number plate, like they expect you to pull over and start applauding. I love the cars but serious case of penis envy with a few of the drivers near me.

Was ok for a while. Used to have the 'black metal' issue. Metal Maniacs also used to be decent for a maimstream publication. Unfortunately print media is obsolete these days save for books on the history of things. Terrorizer and Metal Maniacs were great for introducing young people to decent music IMO. I guess you could call them gateway mags.
I think there is still a demand for zines within Black Metal, although I've no idea on the numbers produced and sales numbers. I've never really read any of them myself before but ordered a couple last week since I'm heading to Thailand for a wedding. Heard good things about Bardos Methodology and some are loaded with 40-60 pages and interviews with 15+ artists, should keep me occupied at the airport/on flights if anything I guess.

I reckon this is pretty awful.
Yeah I remember you saying so. I think it is pretty solid. Better than The Graveyard and Abigail 2. Probably prefer it to Voodoo as well. Will have to go back a page or two and see where I rated it. Haha.

Enjoying the new Deserted Fear “Drowned by Humanity”.
Got two albums. Not offensive but nothing new - by all means I should enjoy them but haven't really given them much airtime. Perhaps I should revisist.

New one certainly appealed straight away. Production is sweet (perhaps a little too clean?), leads add a layer of melody over the riff.... has a bit of an At the Gates feel to it. Standard fare as you say.

Gotta buy a new tripod for the gym (broke the leg on my previous one when I threw it this past Sunday) so will see if Bourke St has it then. 4 deliveries today. Osmose now wrapping its orders in tape which reads "Destroying your souls since 91" or something to the effect. Might need to start saying "it is for my son" if questioned. Haha.

Why did you throw your ‘tripod’?

I don’t think the new one is significantly different from the previous (Dead Shores Rising) save for slightly punchier production? Might be the headphones I’m listening through.

Wasn't an angry throw - just had finished filming something and threw it towards my bag. Landed awkwardly and bang.

Were you filming yourself in the gym...
Ok I will bite. I film all working sets. I do powerlifting and you need to analyse your lifts to understand form, sticking points, areas which can be improved etc. It is very helpful, particularly if you don't have a coach with you. Even if you have a coach it is helpful as sometimes people need to see a form issue to understand that they have it. I'd say most lifters I know film their training (olympic lifters too). FWIW I was squatting and had a long sleeved shirt on.

So much gym talk. I need to get back into it, let myself go and need to shed a few kegs. Body has been breaking down due to work, gets worse because I have neglected exercise, and exercise is hard to get into because my body feels broken. Vicious cycle. Did something stupid today so on the Voltaren which doesn’t help.

Fair play. I was just poking the bear. I wish I had your dedication.

I started 3 nights a week in the gym when I was in U17s football. This was a serious mapped out & supervised program even at that age. Until I was 33-34 I felt guilty if I missed a session. I’m still in shape for sure but that seems like a lifetime ago.

The thing is once you kinda stop (getting married, having a kid changes everything) it’s really hard to get back to the dedication you had. Nowadays I’ve a basic gym set-up in my own house and I hardly use it. I do run 2-3 times a week and watch what I eat.

You’d be surprised how much of a difference just a few little tweaks in your weekly routine will help. And this in turn feeds you to do more etc.

Old mate Voltaren. Used to know him so well....

I only stopped the gym a couple years ago but still carry old junior footy injuries that niggle from time to time. Used to be super fit and was meant to enter the RAAF at 22 but my enlistment fell over at the 11th hour. It used to be easier to get back into but at 33 I’m finding it much harder. The biggest thing is motivation. The missus is starting a new job in a couple weeks much closer to home so she won’t be getting home so late and we vowed to get back into exercise.
