  2. Just another "You're lying! No, YOU'RE lying!" bunch of music drama. Whatevs. Gotta say though, there's a bit of a huge discrepancy in the timeline of the demise of the band as related to the timing of the lawsuit. Both parties can't be right on that one.
  3. Brain fart on my part. I meant George Soros... another billionaire with not enough to do with his monies.
  4. Yes, but the devil is in the details. Percentagewise the raw population in the U.S. is close to evenly split left vs. right; I would put it at 55-45 left vs. right at worst. However traditional media (newsprint, TV, broadcast radio) at the national level is overwhelmingly left-leaning. Same with social media platforms. The perception is that Fox is huge, but that is because there are fewer dogs taking a chunk of that 45% pie. The 55% majority is being cannibalized by CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, NPR, Bloomberg, etc. Fox pretty much is the king of the heap on the right side with no major compe
  5. I bet you would feel differently about the mainstream media if it weren't in lock-step with your chosen ideology all the time, i.e., if it only parroted GOP talking points all day long, I don't believe you would feel the same about those "who are against the mainstream media."
  6. I agree. The issue is complicated IMO and there is no right answer... so many extenuating circumstances. One can easily create numerous scenarios to fit either a pro-abortion or anti-abortion stance. With that being the case, as much as I personally dislike the notion of abortion being used as a convenience tool for people that can't keep their legs shut, or those that want to get more government benefits, I feel it has to remain legal. But that's as far as I'll go in discussing the subject as it never turns out well.
  7. Yep. He's completely independent, not beholden to any label or sponsors, so he doesn't have to tread any line with respect to his opinions. Not having to depend on 3rd parties means he can't be canceled. His girlfriend Nova does all the video work. The video "Dear Slim" he dropped a few weeks back was epic. He purchased an Eminem-produced beat at auction for $100,000 and everyone assumed he would use it to slam Eminem because they are polar opposites politically. Eminem fans, aka "stans" were just all up in arms going apeshit. Tom drops the video and what was it? A tribute to Eminem thank
  8. I have no idea what you're talking about.
  9. I'll try to take a look at that this evening. The form captcha may have broken again.
  10. At the end of the day, religious beliefs (or the lack thereof) are a very personal and individual decision, and I don't believe there is a right or wrong answer. I come to the issue with a very laissez-faire attitude, being a lifelong agnostic. I was raised without religion in the household, but had relatives that were highly religious. I don't say there is a God, nor do I deny the existence of God, because I simply don't know. I don't believe that faith can be taught or persuaded; it most come organically from within. If there is a God, he/she/they have never revealed themselves to
  11. u mad bro? I admonished Leykis for late night drunkposting. I think the same might be in order here. I'll pray for you.
  12. I've been playing with some new headphones and other audio equipment, and one thing that struck me about this 2-CD set is that it is exceptionally well recorded and produced. Really top notch compared to some of the "professional albums" being produced these days.
  13. May favorites are XXX XXXXXXXX and YYYYYYY, although ZZ ZZZZZZZ ZZ ZZZZZZZ is pretty darned good too. (Heck no, I'm not giving away who my favorites are! )
  14. Dude, post wherever the fuck you want. Just maybe no late night drunkposting, ok?
  15. It's been years since I listened to his solo material, but I seem to recall Running With the Wind being very Journeyesque but a bit on the lighter side.
  16. Well he posted about Kevin Chalfant about an hour ago so I'm guessing that assessment is off.
  17. Absolutely not a joke IMO. Yes, their music has a consistent theme, but I would not put them in the camp category like Manowar.
  18. I just keep waiting for Tommy "ReinXeed" Johansson to break into a piercingly high-pitched scream... he just seems so out of place in the band compared to all of his solo stuff. But I mean he's been in the band for 5 years now so it's not just a fling.
  19. Gave this a full listen through today. I wasn't fully sold based on the singles, but this album is damned good. The only problem is that it's too short at 37 minutes. After one listen though, I think my favorite track is the second to last cut "Just a Man". EDIT: Just saw the post above. What the everloving FUCK?
  20. This album is excellent IMO. What really struck me is the production/mix quality. The drum recording/mixing especially is absolutely impeccable. Some of the best I've heard on a metal album. Very enjoyable album thus far.
  21. Ahh yess! These guys can do no wrong IMO. I know a lot of folks here don't care for Euro-power metal, but Sabaton's military-themed albums are epically wonderful. They actually study the military history for their lyrical content as well, so it's not just off the cuff B.S.
