LRC was one of the long list of reasons I pulled up on RS. A couple of my final 99s left were Mining and Smithing, and LRC was the go for mining, and I didn't go much on it. Thus, furthering the realisation that I didn't like playing any more.
He has a couple kids, and they're great, but they're often a source of distraction. So we've generally played at his, which is no problem for me (Honestly, DnD is great, but I'm really there for the socialising, and I'm not quiet about that fact). The DM proposed we run at the DM's place instead, and we did, and things ran smoothly, so the DM suggested we do that forever 'away from the distractions'. The other party members agreed/said it doesn't matter where it is, but he took the wording as a personal attack against him and his family. He's by no means super anti-social, but he seems like he struggles sometimes and I think he's unable to word it and discuss it with the DM. He's reacted like this before and we talked it out and got it solved, and the DM was really good at that. This time he's being annoying about it and the DM isn't interested in humouring him any more, so he's trying some tough love.
It frustrates me personally because I know he's not easy to get along with a lot of the time, but I brought this group together, starting with he and I, and this stupid stuff is tearing us apart.
Regardless, we've got a back-up campaign running which the DM has ran before and is easy to drop in and out of, alternatively I've been thinking of DMing for ages, so you never knooow.
One of my party members needs to grow up and tell us straight what his problems are rather than 'wellimnotplayingthen'. Otherwise, we might be on Sunday. We know what his problems are, but instead of us having a civilised discussion about it, he just gets all whiny.
Actually just checked the group chat, looks like 4/5 of us are on, but the aforementioned member has not replied.
I'm glad my mates don't drink, generally. Only 3 of our group drink, the rest stay away. I like to think I've been a good influence, coming to hang out with them and play games rather than them going out or whatever. Normally I'm the biggest anti-drinking bloke you'll meet, but some of my mates would give me a run for my money now.
I live in Exmilitary and The Money Store with Death Grips. I first got into them just after The Money Store, and I've kept up with them since, but nothing's hit me like those first two. On GP is my all-time favourite, which is an exception, otherwise, a quick top ten or so:
On GP>Spread Eagle Cross the Block>I've Seen Footage>Get Got>Beware>I Want It I Need It (Death Heated>Culture Shock>[bleep] Please>Hacker. I got kinda sick of Guillotine, but it's pretty great too.
And something so I actually have a vid.
Dax's top five Porcupine Tree tracks:
4. Piano Lessons.
3. Lightbulb Sun.
2. Not Beautiful Anymore.
1. Last Chance to Evacuate Planet Earth Before It Is Recycled
I have no major problems with your list at all, though, so, nice. Porcupine Tree is such an album band it's pretty hard to pick out the best five. Realistically I just want to say 'Bugger it, top five is all 10 tracks of Lightbulb Sun, go listen to it.' I'd put it as an album in my top ten of all time. Also I think I prefer Steven Wilson's solo stuff, but that's a top five for another day.
The top 5 Marilyn Manson songs.
5. Cake and Sodomy.
4. The Death Song.
1. Coma White.
I thought I'd be able to sneak something from High End or Born Villain into the list but honestly Anitchrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals are such fantastic albums that I couldn't really justify it
(Honestly would like more time to think about this, but I'm too lazy at the moment and just want to make the joke.)
Also Tess check out Screaming Females, I'm immediately reminded of them from that track you posted.
We're losing one of our party members in a month. Shame, but she's rarely able to make sessions, so if I was forced to cut one of us loose it'd be her. Not sure if we'll bring a new person in to fill her spot, I feel like DM plus four is the perfect number, just enough different angles and opinions to make things more fun.
Want to fly out to Australia every fortnight and join our game, RPG?
Prodigy is great. When I first got into music, it was among the first wave of stuff I got from my mates. I love my Music for the Jilted Generation, but any of their first four albums are excellent starting points, I think. Fat of the Land's probably the safest because Breathe, Smack my [bleep] Up and Firestarter, though.
I don't tend to feel bad or guilty, I can't really help it. I think it's a good thing in a way. Chances are I can't support the actual artist any more, unless it's someone in a band and the band cruises on, but realistically I don't do much to support musicians as it is. I'm still a filthy pirate and I can count the amount of gigs I've been to on one hand, while I can count the amount of merch and CDs, etc. I've bought without going over 100. I'm pretty terrible, but it's a good starting point to finally make the plunge on an artist. I'd downloaded all of Bowie, but when he died I really delved in, and now it's at the point where I'll recommend him and it's not just because he just died, it's because I know a bit more, and if someone buys some Bowie stuff because of me, that's how we do. Bowie's a terrible example because it's god damn David Bowie, but he was the first one that came to my head.
