FUCK THIS INNING AND FUCK OUR BULLPEN

GREAT LOSING 4 - 1 TO THE STINKING ANGELS Suicide
avatar
Man, I'm not sure I'm ready for "nu" Concerto Moon. Sad
avatar
It's like some sort of stupid challenge to see how many times he could cut to a different camera angle in the allotted time. Tongue
avatar
Seriously, what the hell happened with this footage? It's like all the camera and video editing guys ragequit.
avatar
It's coming right after the Mahatma MV. Should be any day now!
avatar
Still waiting for that octaviagrace mv
avatar
I wonder how Trout feels about being literally the only worthwhile player on that team
avatar
7 - 0 glad the Angels decided to suck today Laugh
avatar
Glad it's friday

* Painkiller kicks Dudemanguy from his server.

Don't kick me off or I'll rage Tongue
avatar
Forum maintenance to be rescheduled at a later date.
avatar
If they make just one major mistake (I know they will), that kernel is instantly forked. As long as the kernel lives on, that's all that matters. Besides, I'm too scared to try BSD-anything. Tongue
avatar
What the actual fuck? Linux adopted a fucking code of conflict? I hate this world. Suicide

Butchering the US anthem on 9/11 of all days is probably not the best idea. Laugh
avatar
Kill me. This anthem singer at the Blue Jays game is beyond horrible. She murdered both the Canada and U.S. anthems.
avatar
Madness reigns...in the hall...of the Mountain King!
avatar
Patiently waiting for those CDs to arrive
avatar
Time to talk about the bands from the YouTube channel. Headbanger
avatar
Damn the umpires costing us a run

Fucking umpball, he was safe!

5 - 5 TIE GAME WOOO
avatar
Down 5-1.....
avatar
SUNDAY FUNDAY!
avatar
WOOHOO 2/3 against the red sox. Going for the sweep tomorrow
avatar
4 - 1 lead Tongue
avatar
...or pre-Wat Hagar Concerto Moon!
avatar
Just listen to Galneryus instead
avatar
6 - 3 Big Grin
avatar
Eunough.
avatar
Third one is the best. Probably because they got their shit together by then. The first album has some really obnoxious "singing".
avatar
3 - 2 LEAD
avatar
WOOHOO 2-1
avatar
Well their early ones are alright imo
avatar
I keep going back and forth with Ark Storm...on whether or not I should ever keep listening to them again. Tongue
avatar
We're getting our asses kicked by the Red Sox right now
avatar
Petition to raid every radio station possible and play Doom.
avatar
Doom is amazing and everyone should listen to them.
avatar
I think it's a one-off show, still, it's better than nothing. I agree, if they enjoy themselves and it goes over well, a full US Galneryus tour would be magnificent.
avatar
I should've seen Galneryus when they were in Mexico City. Zzzzz. Atlanta is the next best thing. Hopefully they do a US tour.
avatar
Oh and technically, they've played in Mexico before which counts as North America
avatar
You should get your ass over there too. Tongue
avatar
Galneryus is playing in North America for the first time next year. Have fun!
avatar
Tragic.
avatar
The only other option around here is ATT lol
avatar
Are there any other ISPs that you could switch to, or is it all just Comcast? I hate it when these companies try to monopolize areas by eating up smaller ones.
avatar
Comcast tech is supposed to come out today. Hopefully they'll find the problem.
avatar
sad to hear you have internet troubles.Sad
avatar
At least I have internet at work
avatar
We're back on, as of 12:30 AM PT on September 4, 2018.
avatar
I will be taking the forums down in less than two hours from now for necessary maintenance. Come back a little later!
avatar
Tragic.
avatar
God, I've had no internet for the past 12+ hours. Currently I'm phone posting.
avatar
Watching my rare Concerto Moon VHS scores. Based on image and audio quality, the previous owner probably wasn't a fan. Wink
avatar
Fucking internet randomly went out again for a while
avatar
Oh thank jesus, my tracking updated. I can stop being paranoid now.
