    My new bass is supposed to be delivered tonight, and I'm feeling like utter dogshit, so I won't be able to play it or even do a coherent NBD until this passes. I'm going to drown myself in cough medicine I guess.

    Speaking of hair, I hate body hair.
    I'm not an extremely hairy person but my skin gets easily irritated once they reach a certain lenght so I have to trim them once a week.
    I'm thinking about doing some kind of laser removal but it's quite expensive.

    Post urination, while making the necessary re-arrangements, I lost control of the elastic on my underwear and it rebounded, hitting me right on the testicle.


    I would class this as a "self-own".

    Damn this country... I was filling an application for new identity card and I had to prove that I had passed national military service in finnish defence forces. That's because I'm still under 30 years old, and duty to go any kind of service ends after that, which prevents you to flee out of country, and they ask this from every male between ages 28-30 if you're filling an application for passport or id-card. Taking pictures of my military pass in middle of the night felt pretty damn stupid. And I didn't even know about this stupid law :shrug:

    Yeah, that sucks. I don't remember what I was applying for when I had to send a picture of that, but I had to do that once too. I guess it must've been when my passport was about to expire and I had to apply for a new one.
    You'd think there's some kind of centralized system where they could just check that... But apparently the only "evidence" that you've done your military service is that little piece of paper.
    Now I'm 30 though, so they don't care anymore :lol:

    Don't feel too bad. I ordered something from Obscura (a technical/progressive death metal band from Germany) and it took 9 months to arrive. I was so sure my package was lost in transit or something. I wish I could order something from Germany and get it in 9 days.

    Preorder for the new Cattle Decapitation Death Atlas album doesn't have the option for the t-shirt with the album cover, which is bitching, for the UK and Europe. Just some Cattle Decap design that does nothing for me. The US site has this t-shirt, another design and the album cover but the bundle costs $35 and shipping is another $20 :(.

    2 weeks ago I ordered a couple CD's from the Agonia Records web shop, which I think is based out of Poland. They sent me an email 2 days ago saying the items shipped and would be at my work in Michigan in 6-10 weeks. I don't even use express shipping when I get shit from Canada or the States but holy shit this is excessively long. We're definitely spoiled around these parts.

    Same exact thing happened to me with Beyond creation's last album (Algorythm). Season of mist (Beyond's label) had a t-shirt design that I really wanted and only they had it. But..., Beyond's IfMerch site had the option of getting what you ordered signed by the band members but the shipping and handling price was expensive. T-shirt with no signature (for special edtion box set) or signed box set with no shirt and expensive s&h? I went with the signed box set because the shirt will always be available but I think it's ridiculous that customers have to order from 2 different companies to get their band merch.

    Merch is such a cartel these days. Since bands make so little they're pretty much stuck going with whoever the distributor's "merch people" are. That or they pay their own way upfront and then have to divide what they ordered between markets.

    If they're popular enough they can license their stuff out so it's more available and less region based, but then they make a lot less off of it.

    I think bands like Bongripper that make all merch pre-order is the way to go. Sure, it takes a lot longer to receive, but you never have to worry about availability and the prices are kept reasonable.

    My balls sweat and stick to my thigh in my new sports car due to the carbon fiber bucket seats being so tight.
