    DMV employees are the rare breed of mentally retarded people who are assholes at the same time.

    Yeah, I agree.

    I just finished waiting in both of those lines just now and cant decide which place I want to set fire to first.

    I posted in the musicians thread but that place gets like no traffic. Anyways got a Gretsche resonator, I've been learning Orange Goblin's slidy intro of 'Beginner's Guide to Suicide' and doing pretty damn good, loving it pretty damn hard. Any recs for more slidetastic rock and metal? I know blues mainly got that shit on lock.

    If nobody goes to the musicians' forum then I see no problem with there being a musicians/gear thread in GMD Social.

    Blut Aus Nord's MoRT is probably the slidiest metal album ever. But most people have shitty ears and don't appreciate it.

    A lot of people, even those that are big fans of the band, don't seem to like that album.

    If you want to try them out you're better off going with Ultima Thule and the Memoria Vetusta trilogy for more straight forward, melodic black metal, or with The Work Which Transforms God, Odinist ant Sect(s) if you're interested in the more experimental side.

    I still really enjoy MoRT though.

    Just went on a budget slashing binge. Switched from DirecTv to a local provider, got rid of my credit monitoring service now that my bank offers it complementarily, switched my wifes service from Straighttalk to Republic Wireless, and got the NYTimes to drop my rate to a penny a month again when I called to cancel. Monthly savings of about $100-120 without lifestyle changes.

    I'm tempted to completely go without cable/satellite when I get out on my own. Only things I'd miss are the regional cable sports stations since I can't reliably catch Wings games on network tv, but I guess thats what Gamecenter is for.

    my girlfriend and I haven't had cable/satellite in the two years we've lived in our apartment. Between netflix/hulu/amazon prime and streaming, we see everything we're interested in.

    Same here in terms of personally not really needing it. Only thing I use TV for is football in the fall and Suits/Mad Men, but Mad Men is nearly over and Suits can be streamed elsewhere. Otherwise it's for the kids cartoons and the cooking shows my wife likes. The first 12 months on DTV were a deal, but with the price hike after it's cheaper to pay the disconnect fee and switch. The switch pays for itself in 4 months.

    Yeah I actually just started thinking of this the other night.

    Our cable/internet is Verizon Fios (fucking hate it) and apparently my roomates dont want to pay the higher rate to be able to record onto our DVR box. Fucking stupid. So I have to deal with the two things I hate about cable...

    Commercials, and I have to watch shit live. The only reason I want cable is for Lakers sports, and half of the time Im at a bar watching the game, so I guess I really need to have this discussion with them...

    Dont like the layout. Menus are slow. Most importantly, CANT RECORD SHIT.

    Im old. I get used to something a certain way and I dont like it when it changes.

    EDIT:

    I will say though, their internet is stupid fast.

    lol get this. I guess I need to call that local provider back and cancel the installation. Some higher up DTV person called and brought the monthly price down to match, + $200 gift card + NFL Sunday Ticket for this coming fall, without requiring a new 2 year contract.

    Mine too man, definitely will. Curious, what's your lastfm? Because I'm pretty sure we're hella similar, though you definitely know more bands' work.

    Will check those too, they get high praise often.
