    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    I think you meant "right" the first time, but yes, those things kind of work hand-in-hand. There certainly are a lot of dangers to going with left-leaning ideas to fix things that aren't broken. But we are quickly approaching a time when the political landscape of the USA is more broken than...

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    Jason Krause? Yeah, he used to play in Aftermass. They were fairly technical. Kickass bass player, too.

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    Meshuggah is an alternative metal band. Nümetal is a subset of alternative metal, for sure. So Meshuggah is like the first cousin of the nümetal genre.

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    Well, no, not really. Have you taken a civics class, like, honestly? Because that's not what any of those words formally mean, like at all. The political right is the worldview that traditions are more important in defining our social norms than new ideas. The political left is the opposite...

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    Hmm. I'd push back on that and say that it started out with people not trying to be nümetal, it started off as people pioneering a new sound, but, within 3-4 years, it ended up being people trying to be nümetal and people jumping on the bandwaggon to get the same tired old sound.

    student loan forgiveness

    Meh, do your best with grammar and spelling, because it get's your point across better. Otherwise, don't sweat it. As long as you were understood the way you wanted to be understood, why waste more effort than necessary? I had all of those grammar rules drilled into my head, and it tends to...

    Some memes for SS.org (Rules Posted in OP -- Please Read)

    I paid tens of thousands of dollars to go to a university to learn the word tesseract, only to have movies like hypercube and avengers normalize it. :lol:

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    Weird. I had that same guitar (RG7520VK), same volume pedal (Ernie Ball), same whammy pedal (Digitech Whammy II), same distortion pedal, same or nearly identical shoes, same baggy khaki pants, etc. It's almost like we shopped at all the same places or something. :lol:

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    I first heard Incubus driving to school one day on pirate radio. Then a different song a few days later. After that I went and grabbed S.C.I.E.N.C.E. from the local record store and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the album. When they got their big break, I was, at first, quite let down by...

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    Many of them could. Some still couldn't. :lol: Great singing and drumming, too, even if the lyrics ranged from meh to cringe. Were there any technical nümetal guitarists? I'm thinking of Gurg jabbing away at drop-tuned one-finger chords, or Static X's single-riff songs, etc.

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    LD50 was great. I never really listen to any of their follow-ups. Disturbed... first album was nümetal with some other added flavours. Second album was not. Kind of like the direction Mudvayne went, except more developed and somehow catchier. And that's just kind of what I'm saying about a...

    Why I Miss Nu Metal

    My flaming hot take - Korn was awesome when they were fresh, then went more mainstream and lost their magic, then got bad, then redeemed themselves (sort of), but are not and never will be as relevant as they were when they were fresh. Limp Bizkit were always cringe, but were once fresh (but...

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    Why though? It still makes no sense, logically. "Are you sick of voting for the corrupt politician who bends to the will of the megalomaniac business interests? Instead vote for the megalomaniac business interests directly." That's like trying to dodge a bullet by shooting yourself in the...

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    He's a libertarian. He voted for Gary Johnson and then for Jo Jorgensen. That's not republican nor democratic leaning. As far as left/right, that's a mixed bag, dependent on the issue. Not sure why this is confusing for everyone in this thread. There are tons of people who support third...

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    I'm not sure where that conjecture originated, but I feel like it's been misquoted and also possibly become outdated. I believe that the older version of the tidbit is stating that, compared to other "developed" countries, the USA is more conservative than liberal. But there are a lot of...

    Dean Import quality

    I've owned tons of import Deans. Most of them were great. One, though, had the frets rust, yes rust, which was weird, but when it happens, I just polish off the rust and keep playing it. There are undoubtedly a few poorly made ones that slip through QC, so it's a bit of a gamble. Here in the...

    Female guitarists on Only Fans. Not sure if it is a good or bad thing....

    IDGAF who has an onlyfans or what people do in private or whatever. My only thought is that it's probably not the most advisable thing to cross-advertise your adult entertainment content in your youtube videos. :2c: But who cares? :shrug:

    Another Megadeth Post of Ellefson.

    The new Megadeth is pretty good. Out of all the people who have come and gone in Megadeth, it's puzzling to me why people are still talking about Dave Jr. Anyway, MAGAdeth parody song: Pence Sells, But Who's Biden? Funny or horrible? :lol:

    US Political Discussion: Biden/Harris Edition (Rules in OP)

    75% of Illinois residents live in the greater Chicago area. That's why it's so difficult for Republicans there, generally. Only about 10% of people in Wisconsin live in Milwaukee. What Democrats should have realized by now is that they are their own worst enemies. Even republican voters...
