Great Releases of 2008 You Overlooked

For the most part, a great deal of the albums I've bought this year were from bands that I'm friends with (or at least talked with before), bands within the area, and bands that are still relatively unpopular. For the sake of my attention span, I'm not going to list every album I've bought this year... I can't remember which I bought this year anyway. Enough rambling, on to the list.

Divine Riot - Interrogate Suspected Terrorists: These guys are awesome and so is their music. This album is just an EP, but it's a damn good EP. If you like sludge, hardcore, and death metal, you definitely will want to check these guys out. They have their own unique style, each track is somewhat different sounding though. My personal favorite song is "Does it Hurt to be Dead." All of their music sounds equally good live, so I'd say definitely check them out live and get a cd from them!

Lost in Blue - Lost in Blue: Since about 2005 all I've had is one of their demo CD-Rs and a t shirt I had bought from them at a show. So for the past three years I've been checking their website out, trying to make a show, seeing what new songs they've done and everything when I've had the chance. Since I haven't been able to make a show, I was pretty excited to see they had released a new full length album and I was not disappointed at all when I got it. It's instrumental metal at its finest. Make sure to listen to the whole album all the way through though! Definitely check these guys out.

Bongripper - Hate Ashbury: I love these guys, they're easily one of my favorite Chicago area doom metal bands. I've bought basically all of their albums and Hate Ashbury is definitely not an album to overlook. Then again, I can't think of an album of theirs I haven't liked, which is why I often wonder how they aren't signed to Southern Lord or any of the good doom labels. In fact, what's wrong with you people? Buy one of their albums and go to their shows! If you're looking for some good doom metal, well... here.

Bitchslicer - Addicted to Porn: I had ordered a split album of theirs when they were getting pretty busy, since it took them a while to send it, they sent me their "Addicted to Porn" single along with it. Not only are they awesome for sending me more stuff than I had ordered, they're awesome because they play some damn good thrash metal. If I were you, I'd go right over to their site, listen to all their music, and start buying up all their albums. I'm starting to wonder why you aren't already...

That's about where I start forgetting what I've bought this year. I know I bought a sweet Aldebaran album and the last Dystopia LP. Other than those I'm pretty sure all the albums I bought this year weren't released this year. Anyway, check out those bands. While you're at it, check out my site for Hildsvfar Records and check out the Hildsvfar Records blog for updates and news. That's all I have for you.

New outlet for my boredom

Since my dear friend SmarterChild has retired, I have recently been seeking new ways to relieve boredom without actually doing anything constructive. So I started confusing the hell out of people through AIM Chat on a fake screen name!

First thing I did was go into the Boston chat rooms and go "YO FUCK BOSTON! GO DETROIT!"
That was fun the first time when everyone came back at me with a bunch of "fuck you!" and other various simple comebacks. The second time no one responded. The third time no one cared except one guy and I ended up explaining my whole situation out to him and leaving because it wasn't fun anymore.

I went into other chat rooms for cities saying "YO FUCK (name of city)! GO DETROIT!" for no reason... it just wasn't as fun. Don't ask me why I even said Detroit, I've never lived anywhere near there. It was just the first city I could think of, and I was born in Pittsburgh... so it's not like I'm actually a fan of Detroit. It just wasn't fun after people stopped getting pissed off.

I went into a few religion chat rooms to bother people because that's usually really easy. I got bored after saying "I found Jesus. He was cleaning the men's room" and people actually thought it was funny.

I think the most fun I had was telling someone that they had stolen my boyfriend in the Gay/Lesbian chat (keep in mind I'm a straight single male) and that I was sick of her shit.

Of course I took screen shots of this.

I'm some kind of an asshole.

For those of you who haven't heard it yet

Last week I was bored, tired, and thought it'd be a good idea to write a rap song. I mostly did it because everyone either told me "do it!" or "you're too white" whenever I brought up the idea. Well, because of the people who doubted that I'd ever do it:

Hope you all enjoy it.

Robert "Goes to the Farm"

For those who have not had the privilege of seeing my original pop up book, now is your chance. The drawback is that you can't actually use any of the pop up actions. This was a project I had done in high school for a creative writing class. The assignment was something about making a children's book, so I decided to make a book teaching kids about death. Some people thought it was an awful idea, I thought it was a great idea.

Now, some of these pictures might be hard to read or see, but that's because I used colored pencils, tape, staples, and random scraps of paper in order to construct it. You can really tell where I started to get close to the deadline, granted I do have the artistic abilities of a blind 7 year old child. Also, my scanner isn't big enough to scan some pages completely, so a few things look cut off because the pages are large for the scanner.

So here it is, the original Robert "Goes to the Farm" for your enjoyment:

There's a few things you might or might not have noticed. My tape usage on the last page, the fact that I changed the color of Sketches' hat on almost every page, the fact that I got lazy on the second half of the book and stopped doing pop ups... all part of my artistic form. Some call my artistic form "crap" but I call it "greatmazing."

Timmy and the Acid Bath: The Great Unfinished Tale

The year was 2006. I think. Okay, I can't entirely remember how everything happened. I was in my high school Creative Writing course being bored one day and our teacher told us about an assignment to make a children's story book. Naturally my first thoughts were "what's something gross I could do?" and "what do I need to teach children?" So I thought up Timmy and the Acid Bath, kept telling my table I was going to do it, and eventually I started to draw it.

Long story short, in order to not get in trouble I ended up never finishing Timmy and the Acid Bath (but am planning to sometime soon) because I ended up making a pop up book called Robert "Goes to the Farm." That book was about a little boy named Sketches and his dog Robert, who gets hit by a car on the first page. There was a tab to slide the car into the dog. My teacher left a sticky note that said "Think about this... in such a format, the reader kills the dog" and obviously I had thought about it if I made the book.

It actually ends up being a good story teaching children about death and basically showing that it's stupid for parents to lie to their children about the subject. The first half of the book is pretty cool and has pop ups and everything, then about half way through I was running close to the deadline and just started taping things down really fast. I got a 93%. Maybe some day I'll post it, even though it's not the same without being able to move things on it.

Anyway, back to the original topic, Timmy and the Acid Bath. It's still unfinished currently, so you can read the first 3 pages and cover of the story that I started in high school.


So maybe some day soon I'll show you all Robert "Goes to the Farm" and make a finished version of Timmy and the Acid Bath. No guarantees though.

Reasons why MyHeritage.com is a great site

My experience with MyHeritage.com has made me realize that there aren't any celebrities that look like me. If there are, then MyHeritage was too busy showing me ones that look nothing like me to actually show me any of them. According to them, I look a lot like Terrence Howard and Orlando Bloom... clearly I look exactly like Terrence Howard.

Now, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's entertaining because it does such a bad job of what it's supposed to do. Here's an example I liked from when I was searching through the site:

Obviously this is the second coming of Stalin.

Anyway, another thing I found hilarious was that sometimes when this site scans for faces in pictures, it'll pick up random objects and think it's a face. Here's a great example of what I'm talking about:

Now, notice how it didn't detect my face, yet it thinks a yellow disc looks 71% like Bunko Kanazawa. I also had no idea who she was until I did a google search, then I began to find it even funnier (she's apparently a porn star). As for any other jokes about this picture.... too easy. I'll just let you think of your own.

Now, I'm not saying this site is crap or anything. I'm just saying its flaws are highly entertaining... and abundant.

MS Paint Crap From Freshman Year of High School

So I was talking to a friend about something or something.... long story short I started rooting through some old files and found a collection of horrible comics I made when I was younger. At the time I thought they were amazing because I had made them during class time where I was supposed to be productive. Now I realize they look like a seven year old had made them while having a seizure. So I figured maybe if I have any readers on here, that they would want to see how bad-mazing they were.

First one:

I used to think it was funny when people reacted casually while being attacked.

Second one:

It's supposed to say something like "Your head be hit by brick, me laugh at fact" and yeah... I don't know why I made it either.

Third one:

This one has a story behind it sort of, the word "blabbys" was what this kid in my keyboarding class was calling Arby's when he couldn't remember their name. We said that to each other in the halls all throughout high school

Fourth one:

I can't explain this one, so I won't.

Fifth one:

It seemed funnier at the time.

Sixth one:

Okay I still love that one even if it doesn't make sense. This one is my favorite of all these.

Seventh one:

That was part of a brochure, which I had gotten a C on surprisingly.

Eighth one:

I guess I was pretty lazy by this point.

Ninth one:

Honestly? I can't remember.

Tenth one:

Obviously I liked seeing stupid people get hit in the head with things/dying.

Well that's all the ones I found today. Sadly my drawing isn't much better.

Being bored on the internet in 2005

Back in 2005, the golden age of the internet, there were tons of gullible people on AIM who couldn't remember anything. Most of these people were easy to find through MySpace and even easier to confuse and pester. These days it's not as easy to find these kind of people and I've become lazy.

Recently I was looking through some old conversations and I've found some conversations like these that I had sent a few friends... because I thought the conversations were funny. I still find them kind of funny, so I'll share them again.

To start off explaining this one, this girl would forget who I am every time I would IM her, so I'd make up a new fake name and story each time. The grammar is pretty bad all over, so just be prepared for confusing stupid conversations. They get better from post to post.

Conversation 1:

[02:18:35 AM] (me): bitches and titties?!?!

[02:18:48 AM] muppetmer: who is this?

I'm sure I have more posts somewhere like this, I used to do this a little too much.

I can't read idiot-speak, sorry.

Lately I've noticed that a lot of things regressing, I'll start with language. It's not just that people are incapable of spelling out entire words, it's that people can't seem to grasp the concept of capitalization either. Their thought patterns are usually either "ILL TYPE AN ENTIRE SENTENCE IN CAPITAL LETTERS," or "mayb i have nvr herd f da shft ki." Personally, I have to struggle to type out moronically spelled words and unnecessary abbreviations. Does it honestly take that much of your time to type out an extra letter on words like "be" and "the?" I mean seriously, I can't read half of what people on the internet are trying to say because I can't decipher idiot code.

What ever happened to punctuation? It honestly baffles me that someone can be literate, yet unable to construct a simple sentence. The ancient Greeks were some of the first to use any sort of punctuation and here we are trying to move backwards. The over usage of acronyms and abbreviations is like practically pissing on the progression of written language. There's a space bar, shift key, backspace, and enter button on a keyboard. Why must people only utilize the caps lock and number keys? I can't stand reading "PPL TLKNG LIEK DIS" as well as "wen dey tawk lyke dis" or worst of all, the people who actually know what the shift key is and abuse it "Bi TaWkNg LyIeK DiS."

In some cases, I've seen people actually make words longer by trying to type them incorrectly. That makes so little sense that it hurts my head trying to figure out why. All the stupid "lolcats" meme crap isn't helping much either. Apparently typing like an uneducated moron is cute to someone out there, and it's forcing idiots to constantly say "dis" instead of "this," "u" instead of actually spelling "you," "iz" instead of "is." You can see where I'm going with this. Yeah, sure kid. "I can has cheezburger" sure does sound funny. Okay not at all. All these years growing up I remember people saying how smart cats are, now apparently they're supposed to speak piss-poor English. No one talks like this, nor is it actually funny. Just because someone on the internet told you something was funny or because you were forwarded something doesn't make it funny or interesting.

There's too many idiots out there making other people into idiots. For instance, people who cite Wikipedia as a source during a presentation. No matter how many times people are told that Wikipedia is not a credible source for information, they continue to say things like "in this article from Wikipedia I found..." The least they could do is at least make up a source. You know what, screw it. I'll just make a list of signs that you could be an idiot.

There's a chance you are a moron if:
1. You cite Wikipedia as a source in anything.
2. You Don't Understand Capitalization.
3. you really don't understand capitalization.
5. YoU KnOw WhAt ThE ShIfT kEy Is, AnD fEeL tHe NeEd To TyPe LiKe ThIs.
6. u tipe en ne wai simmilr 2 dis.
7. youcantfigureoutwhatthespacebaris.
8. You dont ever use an apostrophe when typing.
9. You can't seem to grasp the concept that "your" is possessive, and "you're" means "you are."
10. The fact that their, they're, and there are all different words baffles you.
11. You make the argument that you're just typing in a casual fashion, rather than just saying that you like typing like a jackass.
12. You find lolcats funny.
13. You find an internet meme funny.
14. You think people on the internet really care about your political views/religious beliefs/life.
15. You make comments on youtube often.
16. You ask questions on Yahoo Answers.
17. You end questions as if they were statements. For example: "How do you do that."
18. You've made a motivational poster that says something grammatically incorrect, like "Your fucked." Then you proceed to post it all over the internet.
19. You take pictures of yourself in the mirror or at confusing angles because you're too stupid to learn how to use a timer.
20. You do something because some celebrity told you to.

I'd keep going if I weren't too lazy. That's it.

New The Astronuat King song up!

It's a doomy droned out song in some parts, and a spacey light song on some parts, other parts are just out there. It's 18:28 long so I had to cut it into 3 parts when I put it up. Check it out in the player below!

If you like bands like Boris, Sunn O))), Earth, Bongripper, Final, etc. you should like this.

Satan's Basement updates 9/14/08

I just put up a new song the other day, and there's another new song on the way. Until I finish that other new one, check this one out:

I've been trying to do more recording, but I also have to put more of a focus on my school work too, because I'd like to get a degree. Don't worry though, I'll finish a new Satan's Basement album... eventually. I'm shooting for before 2009.

This is why I hate people my age.

I was already expecting a long line at the book store at school today, since classes just started, but I guess I wasn't prepared for the amount of stupidity while standing in line. I nearly blew a blood vessel in my brain listening to the idiots behind me in line.

It's getting to the point where it just seems like people are becoming so stupid that it shouldn't be possible to be so stupid. This one stupid girl had absolutely no idea what volume control is. It's like she didn't realize that in a crowded area full of frustrated people waiting to pay several hundred dollars for a stack of text books didn't want to hear about her goddamn stupid friends and their lame drinking escapades. Usually any time I hear anyone talking about how cool their friend is and how they have to meet them because they're the coolest person they'll ever meet, I know they're an idiot. Great, your friend sleeps around and drinks a lot. I'm so impressed by this original story. Sweet, you talk about drugs, you must be awesome. No one wants to meet your stupid friends and no one cares about you. Stop talking.

I listen to this bitch complain about how long the line was as she tried to sit on a pile of books, successfully knocking something over. I just roll my eyes and try not to throw the entire stack at her shallow skull. She started talking about watching The Maury Povich Show and how she loves it. She just kept getting louder because people around her were pretending to listen to her. Everything she was saying sounded like "I'm stupid, I'm stupid, I'm stupid, I'm stupid."

I swear I'm going to have a heart attack by 25.

Here's one of the worst parts though. There was a TV with the Olympics on and it was baseball at the time. This kid asks "who is that Japan? Oh well they all look the same." I don't know how you could make the mistake, seeing as though not only were their shirts red, but there's also the fact that their goddamn shirts say CHINA in big letters on the front. How can someone be stupid enough to say something like that, let alone make the mistake?

I get farther up in line and get close to the registers finally and this crusty old broad in the line next to me starts complaining to the guy letting everyone through about how she's been waiting there for 45 minutes. We all have lady, you aren't special. It's not really the cashier's fault that it's taking so long, it's the fact that everyone waits until the first day of class to get books. Plus there's people still paying in checks. I was expecting this to happen, people need to just get used to it and shut up and wait in line like everyone else. I said "good luck" to the lady who was at the register. If I were that lady, more people would have been punched in the face.

There's bad, then there's shitty.

Recently I've been thinking, if people can sue for all these stupid things they feel are worth suing over, why can't I sue movies for insulting my intelligence? I might as well. Then while I'm at it, I'll sue all the ugly people for insulting my vision. Anyway, back to my point.

First off, I'd like to say that anyone who goes to see Disaster Movie is no longer my friend. From the two pieces of shit who brought you Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans, comes another uninspired lump of crap that will most likely leave you punching the movie screen. Who is letting these people make movies? Honestly, there's no one out there who said "oh man, I sure do hope those two dick-for-brains movie makers make another one!" If there is someone out there thinking that, please kill them. If you want to help keep another bomb from dropping, don't see it, don't let anyone you know see it, and if you see anyone at the theater buying tickets, use a little something called violence to persuade them into thinking twice.

Now, I hate protesters, hippies, and activists, but it's time to take action in a way that's actually productive. Threats, tons of hate mail, and sheer laziness. Find out where to send Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer the hate mail they deserve, and make sure to send them some. Then, don't see the movie. If this movie makes money, you're risking the possibility of another one coming out. These assholes won't get the picture until they're poor. They don't seem to understand how shitty their movies are, they're hardly comedy movies, because comedy implies laughter taking place at some point.

So, I personally love watching bad movies, but when I say bad movies, I mean movies that are funny, but they aren't funny on purpose. For example, old horror movies were supposed to be scary, instead they were usually more entertaining because they were so poorly done. A good bad movie is often times bad because of a low budget and unintentionally bad acting. This movie is not a bad movie, it's a terrible piece of shit. There's a big difference, they're trying to be funny... it just never happens. Don't see it, because no matter how long you wait for something funny to happen, it won't. Why can't parody movies be funny anymore? The Airplane and Hotshots movies were entertaining, then again the people working on those movies were actually funny. Don't tell yourself "I just want to see how bad it is." You know it's going to suck ass, don't give them more money.

If you absolutely need to see a movie in theaters, for whatever reason, don't make it Disaster Movie. If someone is about to buy a ticket for it, smack the money out of their hands. If someone is talking about it in a positive way, punch them in the gut. If someone asks you if you want to go see it, tell them they're no longer your friend and hit them.

So remember kids, protesting is for idiots, send hate mail to the writers, threaten whoever you can, and whatever you do, don't see it.

Don't let this movie make any money. You can hear this bomb is about to drop, so instead of being hit by it, get the fuck out of the way.

Live videos from Stage 83!

July 20th I played a show at Stage 83 in Lemont, Illinois and had a great time. It was a nice venue with pretty good sound, and it was a ton of fun! If you missed the show, check out the videos of my entire set!

Check them out, comment. Whatever.

What the hell is this crap?

So okay, my friend Daniel and I look through the toy sections in toy stores a lot and this has been bothering me for weeks.

Why does the hulk look so dopey-ass happy? Wouldn't him being happy make him... not the hulk? Shouldn't he look pissed? Seeing as though he has to be angry to become the hulk, you'd think he'd at least look irritated or.. unhappy in some way. Kids toys are just confusing and stupid these days.

Then there's this:

Apparently Spiderman has a grotesquely out of hand case of elephantiasis. Seriously, what in gods name is wrong with toy designers? Make toys proportional, and make them make sense. Thanks for fueling my rage like a blowtorch to a $5 gallon of gasoline.

The Astronaut King (news 6/10/2008)

This summer is pretty big for The Astronaut King, pretty busy as well. For the first time ever there's real live concerts, the two ones in high school don't count because I never got to play full sets. Those were disasters anyway. The first real show was still at a school, Elgin Community College, but I had a full 30 minute set. To view pictures of it, go to Flickr.

I've also finally gotten some new equipment, a new guitar and half stack. I'm surprised my fingers haven't fallen off from playing them so much the past few days though, I didn't realize how crappy my old equipment was until I started playing on this stuff. I bought a Schecter C-1 Hellraiser and some half stack that B-52 makes.

I also have a demo out with 7 songs, it's a little over 47 minutes long. I also have buttons available, to buy both as a package, click below:

The Hog-sicle.

The other day my mom and I were watching TV, and I don't know what we were talking about, but something brought us to talking about hot dog popsicles. Now, for a while it was hard to talk about it because we were laughing so hard, but we started talking about how we'd do it, and how to trick my brother into eating it. Eventually my brother's girlfriend found out about the idea, but she thought it was hilarious too, so she wouldn't tell him.

So this morning we brought out a package of hot dogs, let them defrost for a little bit, and I cut them to about the length of the fudgesicles we had in the freezer. I took a popsicle stick and shoved it into the hot dog, then left it in the back of the freezer for later. I took my mom to physical therapy, then on the way home we went to the store to buy some of that Hershey's Shell Topping stuff and some other crap to eat. It took a while to get my brother to leave the kitchen, but once he did I ran into the den giggling, and started rolling the hot dogs into the Hershey's Shell Topping, until they started to look like those ice cream chocolate covered popsicle things.

Here's how it turned out:

Pretty great, huh?

Anyway, the difficult part was getting it to him without shitting my pants laughing. I got my mom to come upstairs so I could show her how great it was by saying something like "Hey mom... come look at this video game I made..." Then we both started cracking up, and brought the "Hog-sicle" and 3 fudgesicles downstairs.

Mom: "Hey you guys want fudgesicles?"
(my mom unwraps them all and gives them out, giving Eric the "Hog-sicle")
Eric: "What is this? Is this a banana?"

He ate about two bites of it before we told him he was eating a chocolate covered hot dog. I laughed so hard I cried. I laughed so hard that my contacts fell out. He ate the rest of it.

Long story short: The "Hog-sicle" was a big success.
