This episode was a week late, as fate and events outside our control forced us to abandon recording last week. But we soldiered on this last Thursday just passed, sansLucas, who'll be taking an extended break from the show. The old crew one again!

We talked about male fruit flies turning to booze in the face of sexual rejection (yes, it actually happens), a pre-Cambrian fossil found with a skeleton, how the Russians want to dominate space (again), astronauts going blind, a new salt-tolerant strain of wheat, and why giant squids likely have such bloody enormous eyes.

In other news, GUESS WHO'S GOING TO SEE DAVID FUCKING ATTENBOROUGH IN AUGUST! Oh yeah.

[livejournal.com profile] abandonedplaces. Go ye forth and join it. DO IT. There are some great photos there.

I still haven't entirely given up my dream of rooting around in old, about-to-topple buildings with a torch, a camera and a fucking good story for errant security guards. Unfortunately, some places near me that I had had my eye upon are now being developed. That's what you get for living in Yuppieville.

So I'm sharing it will all of you.



Special thanks goes to Eva who put the bloody song in my head in the first place. So you could say it's all her fault. :P

I hereby resolve to be more like Peter Russell Clarke. Oh, wait. That would mean learning how to cook.

Procrastinating on the Metal Archives forums yesterday, I came across a comment about a Mexican "depressive BM" band called Drown in Solitude, and how the vocalist sounds like an elephant. Nay, like a herd of elephants.

Surely this is an exaggeration, I thought to myself.

No. No, it's really not...



As I listened to it, I got an image of a herd of elephants in bullet belts self harming. I laughed so hard that I almost peed myself...

In sadder news, I think I killed the iPod.

One of the guys at work just directed me to NCBI ROFL.

Oh dear. Oh deary, deary me... this is better than the Darwin Awards and the Ig Nobel Awards combined!

Strangely enough, this has somehow boosted my faith in research. If only because a) I know that esoterica is not dead after all; and b) because I know I could do a much better job than the vast majority of publications described therein.

Though I don't think I'd ever be able to top this one.

BRING IT ON!

Photobucket

Oh yeah. That's what I'm talking about. I've been waiting for warmer temperatures for waaaaaay too long.

As far as I'm concerned, these guys do black metal right (not the first track, "Incubus". That's a single recorded this year and, while it's good, is not a patch on the stuff down the list! And is also quite different stylistically).

Cold black metal mixed with actual riffs as well as a variety of drumming styles that aren't modern half-thrash beats nor endless blastbeats (though the latter certainly have their place and are used tastefully), and good production (i.e. not underdone nor overdone) . Amazing. Yes, boys and boyettes, it can be done. You don’t have to resort to your black metal album sounding like it was recorded in my anal cavity (though to be fair, the song I'm listening to now is actually more of the "recorded in my anal cavity" type of thing, but not as bad as some I've heard. And it's still fucking awesome songwriting).

I'm ordering their album now.

IT'S MY 666TH POST

.....YES, THIS POST IS SATAN APPROVED.



BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, IT'S 100% KING DIAMOND APPROVED. THIS MAN IS INFINITELY MORE SATANIC THAN SATAN


....ahem. Now back to your regularly scheduled whingefests.

THIS is what I'm talkin' about.

COFFEE

Yep. ONE WHOLE KILOGRAM OF COFFEE.

If this doesn't get me through the fucktardy of the week that will be, nothing will.

...but I find Heidi Klum hotter, now that I know that she keeps her old teeth in a pouch.

Awesome.

Yes, fuckit, I'm procrastinating. Review papers are boring as all hell.

"Bigfoot" turns out to be a gorilla suit. Well, really, did you actually expect it to be Bigfoot?

Text of article under here for when Yahoo o' Doom erases this gem )

Obviously, these guys are pranksters. I mean, they went to this much trouble to freeze a gorilla suit, call a press conference and announce to the world that they had "definitive proof" of Bigfoot's existence, knowing that all the time they would eventually be found out. I find this hilarious, and take my hat off to them, especially for the recorded message on their "Bigfoot Tip Line" - comedy gold.

And yet, one of them is going to lose his job over this.

What a crock. He should be lauded, nay, awarded, not sacked.

Some people have no sense of humour.
clappamungus: (Headbangin' Skeleton)
This guy is metal as fuck!

Seriously, have a look at this...it will make you smile at the very least.
