@robweychert It's like, how much more Black Sabbath could this be? And the answer is none. None more Black Sabbath.

@TommyRocket It really is a great interview. Sometimes I have to take Biafra with a grain of salt, but his enthusiasm is palpable here.“I always felt my own music should be available and affordable… I’ve almost never done limited edition anything.” http://t.co/ravQtW01w9A pretty fantastic collection of lurid VHS box art: http://t.co/PLDX00TxW5 /cc @iamrumzAnother grotesque chapter in fashion’s crimes against women: cosmetic foot surgery for fitting into designer shoes. http://t.co/RovUrSSUhBFurther reading for @aworkinglibrary’s “Do what you love” skepticism (https://t.co/RET6E2yOBJ) from @MiyaTokumitsu: http://t.co/xHoGkjj5CX@essl http://t.co/oic9AWc2l0My collected, tweet-length episode reviews from House of Cards, Season 2: https://t.co/nVj3eqd0PK
House of Cards, Season 2: A smart ode to the long con, a functional indictment of a broken democracy, but still too lumpy as entertainment.House of Cards, S02E13: Finale as microcosm of season: the pulp isn’t pulpy enough, and all else (even Frank’s biggest moment yet) is bland.
@danielmall @essl There was a JS scroll bar on the left side of the content. They refused to let me move it to the right side.@danielmall @essl Nope. Also, I just remembered the design (an INDD file) was thrown over the wall from another agency. I had to build it.@essl Fun fact: I designed a terrible marketing site for Mucinex many years ago.@blastcap Thanks, I did hear that. Not bad, not great.

@TrentWalton Approved.

Retweeted by Rob WeychertIf I ever become broadly influential, I hope I avoid having every stupid little thing I’ve ever created dragged into the light posthumously.@cole007 Good point. Looking forward to digging into your findings.@thepastrybox @hoyboy @cole007 I’ll check it out, thanks! But I think an in-person gathering might gain sharper insights than a survey.Really appreciate @hoyboy sharing his findings from Owner Camp.

Stunned and saddened by the death of @samfelder. I always loved hanging out with him at SXSW. RIP and condolences to his wife and daughter."Without music, life would be a mistake." ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Walk into the waterfall.Feeling terribly sad for some friends who have been plagued by unbelievably bad luck, but thankful for their uncommon strength of character.
House of Cards, S02E10: All the elements of the impending boiling point are pretty boring, so I predict a seriously wacko twist just ahead.@russwittmann Someone else’s unimaginably difficult family crisis might not be the best occasion for your spiritual pedantry.I’m no misogynist, but I’ve been responsible for some of the “thousand tiny paper cuts” of “Technology’s Man Problem” http://t.co/IScwgyp9D1My Top 3 #lastfm Artists: Cloud Nothings (40), Rainbow (16) & Neko Case (14) http://t.co/VM9BBr0OKY“…there’s a decent chance that Silicon Valley and Brooklyn don’t need another you.” This has been on my mind too. https://t.co/yjeisZ6HBX
@TommyRocket Maybe I’m splitting hairs. Metal as a broader genre has no shortage of titans. Maybe all sub-genres only have a few at the top.@TommyRocket What I find weird about thrash is that no one else even came close to the big four. I think most genres have more standouts.@monteiro @danielmall Related, initial scope assessments are difficult, which is why I’m interested in this: http://t.co/Ti4vK684nf@gjhead I hope that’s not a sarcastic thanks. :)@tom9d But then again, there’s plenty of other music I loved as a teen that I can’t stand now.@tom9d I often wonder if it would affect me the same way if I first heard it another time in life. Adolescence intensifies everything.@markboulton I don’t think that’s it either. There were tons of bands making that kind of music during that particular time.@markboulton That’s probably part of it, but it doesn’t explain why Reign in Blood is an enduring classic.@gjhead Not even just lyrics, though. Melodies, riffs, dynamics. Sonically, most bands’ catalogs have nothing to distinguish them.Thrash metal: So many bands have nailed the sound, but so few have written memorable songs. Maybe that’s why the “big four” bands dominated?
“Home Depot™ Presents the Police!® Nobody move unless you want to!” http://t.co/tpJxml4RiYHouse of Cards, S02E09: So they developed all these innocent characters just to be collateral damage in a presidential brove triangle?@diggum Sums things up nicely, right?
@danielmall Lovely. Thanks!@essl Thanks; Torque has potential but I think it’s a little too limited for what I’m trying to do.@jonathanspeir Thanks; Forza has the right feel, but I wish it had some condensed options.@markweaver Yowza, that is a workhorse. Even if I don’t use it this time, it’s a good one to have on the radar. Thanks!Looking for a font that evokes sports, with several weights and widths for display and small amounts of text (à la Knockout). Suggestions?
@meyerweb Sending all my good vibes your way, and then putting more on credit and sending those too.People who litter really, really piss me off.
Sometimes, I’m really proud of my friends. Pretty often, actually. Anyway, read what @kissane wrote. http://t.co/9YAYuGAf9w
“Nothing is sacred, everything is awful, let’s have fun.” http://t.co/tni05V2IRW@blastcap Agreed. I wonder if the lack of depth is because those sub-genres were too recent to have the benefit of analytical hindsight.@blastcap To be fair, plenty of guys in preceding chapters also fit that description. But it’s true; the nu metal chapter is a slog.House of Cards, S02E08: Do all lobbyists have mad P.I. skills like Remy?

And now to confront the dreams that await the man who listens to ten GWAR albums in one day.Metallica’s medley of Rainbow covers is inconsistent, but damn, their take on “Kill the King” (at 4:23) sounds great. http://t.co/qnj1Um2HVIODERUS DOES NOT WANT YOUR PITY, PEACE OR SYMPATHY.

Retweeted by Rob WeychertIn the late ’90s, I interviewed Dave Brockie for a magazine. I was a lousy interviewer but a huge fan, and he made the conversation so fun.Devastated to hear Gwar’s Dave Brockie died. RIP, Dave. Your creativity and wicked wit were peerless. Thanks for being unapologetically you.
