Man I’m behind schedule on everything. My grandparents spent two weeks here so I made it my primary goal to be either away from the house as much as possible or to be asleep while they’re awake – and for the most part, it paid off. However my plans to have the cabalist in the upper-40s by now were shot to hell, as of this morning I’m barely halfway through 43. There’s probably more than my grandparents to blame for that – I started a necromancer and leveled him to 22, although between the shortcut to 20 that Mythic just put in and the fact that necromancers are very fast levelers that hasn’t taken much time, 20 hours tops.

The new Metallica album is out. Pretty much all that needs to be said is that it’s better than Reload, but in terms of quality their first five albums just kick the shit out of it. They did bring the raw heavy sound they used to have back to the front, and there are several moments in the album where it feels like you’re listening to their older shit – but those moments are few and far between. If they do any more studio albums, I’d rather see them totally revert to the sound they had on Ride the Lightning or Master Of Puppets. Mind-bending solos, long instrumental breaks, and severe ass-kicking. That’s what made them famous and quite honestly, everything they’ve done after Metallica has been sub-par.

As for site updates, I added a couple more funny pictures in and took the cam pic out. Basically the cheap piece of shit I was using quit working.
