UPDATE: Well, my wife is recovering from surgery now. She's fine and might actually get some sleep tonight. However this means more time off work. Hoping it doesn't put us out on the street.

 
 

EDIT: To anyone who's in the know, wife's emergency surgery was pushed back until tomorrow morning. She should be fine, but I'll again update later when I can. My mental state is unraveling, but I gotta just push on.

 
 

I've tried to keep this on the down low for a bit, and struggled at times. Some of you may have noticed. But things are catching up to me and the stress is through the roof. More in the comments.

 
 

Here's some good old fashioned "no bullshit" heavy metal to start your weekend with.

 
 

What is your favorite genre of music (Or sub-genre) and what are the essential albums within it? I'll start by listing my own in the comments. (Limit one album per band/group, to avoid the list being too excessive.)

 
 

Well, if anyone give a shit about why I love a flawed game like Destiny, I just posted a blog about it. Should be up soon, it's been published.

 
 

Hi, my real name is Mike. So I count for #MikeMondays too, right? I wanted to share my favorite, as well as the only song I know of about Peter Pan with you all. (And one of my favorite albums, period.)

 
 

I don't have a cat to show you because I don't particularly love them and I'm allergic to them. My dog died a little while back and I had to bury him in the woods, in the rain by hand, because I was too poor to do otherwise. I miss that dog fiercely.

 
 

#ArbitraryMetalTuesday Grave Digger might be the most faithful sounding live band I've ever seen. (As in faithful to their recorded sound.)Caught them with Blind Guardian a few years ago and they were fucking killer. Hansi did this song with them live.

 
 

Any you folks still regularly play Destiny 2? I think it's time to get back on, before the next expansion. Been away since Season of the Drifter. Any primers or tips to catch me up? The last thing I did was get a Gambit Prime set and The Last Word.

 
 

Awesome. https://globalnews.ca/news/5488632/satanic-temple-canada/?fbclid=IwAR1dZ25P7erB%20

 
 

This was my first introduction to progressive metal, before I had any idea that was even a thing as a kid. Still get goosebumps hearing it to this day.

 
 

Chris got me thinking, how about it being time for another AMA? I'm bored as fuck and just sitting around today anyway. Hit me with whatever you want, I'll answer as honestly as possible. Why not one final update? (G-rated or X-rated, doesn't matter.)

 
 

Metal fans on here, what is your favorite (OLDER) metal band that you feel is at least a bit underrated? Or at the very least much less appreciated these days? EDIT: I've included my first examples in the comments.

 
 

Anyone know anywhere I can get some free 5th ED. D&D campaign templates? I need to get this shit on the road, got a fuck ton of NPCs and stuff lined up...but not backbone for my campaign and it's my first time ever DMing 5th Ed.

 
 

Current mood. One of those days. One of the really bad ones.

 
 

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen worth it on PS4? I played this originally on PS3 and enjoyed it, but never finished it. Is the PS4 port good? Does it run well? I've got $20 on PSN and it's on sale for $18 right now. Should I pull the trigger?

 
 

HNNNG! One of my favorite extreme metal covers and possibly my favorite opening riff in the genre!

 
 

I don't like salads at all. I don't enjoy many raw vegetables and I hate dressing. This is probably why I'm fat.

 
 

Here's a classic that no one will want to listen to, but I'll share it anyway. I miss Warrel Dane something fierce, may he rest in peace.

 
 

Warrel Dane's passing hit me like a ton of bricks, and it still does to this day. He's irreplaceable. One of my favorite songs from one of his last few albums. One I've been able to relate to all too well.

 
 

You like reading through a bunch of rambling? Well if so I just finished a great blog for you! Today's been pretty good though, got my new hat in the mail and picked up Samurai Shodown and The Sinking City!

 
 

Considering writing a new blog entry. Been a while. This one would be deeply personal in regarding my discovering faith or lack thereof and how it helped to lift me out of depression and supported my sense of self worth. I worry of stepping on toes though

 
 

They don't make this stuff like they used to. I've yet to find a pure death metal band in the last decade that even comes close to Bolt Thrower. My second favorite band in the genre only behind Death.

 
 

Finished Days Gone tonight. Damned good game. One of my favorites so far in the year. Not without flaws, but certainly better than the sum of it's parts.

 
 

This is one of my favorite songs in a while. Sounds like a melodic death metal Mega Man song. Btw, this new Amon Amarth album kicks a lot of ass.

 
 

Guys, guys...it finally happened! I'm beside myself over here.


 
 

Well, today was my wife's third back surgery. It went well, and she's recovering well, just in a lot of pain. But goddamn, I'm just completely spent. Physically worn down from a week of very little sleep and mentally drained from the ordeal. Need a break.

 
 

St. Louis Blues just won their first ever Stanley Cup tonight! I'm fucking stoked! Been wanting this since I was a child in the 80's. They played some damned good hockey tonight. Binnington is one hell of a goalie!

 
 

This is the first year in...well ever I guess that I've not watched a single presser or trailer from E3. I'm not sure if it's the depression and anxiety or I just don't give a fuck anymore?
