Yet he had this to say about Romney:

"I've got to tell you, I was floored the other day to see that Mitt Romney's five boys have a $100 million trust fund. Where does a guy make that much money? So there's some questions there."

Cythraul: ArtosRC: What a vapid tool.

TOOL is a much better band. And they're not vapid.


Wuuuuuuuuuut!? ***

Tool is a good band. You may like them better than Megadeth but they really aren't comparable in terms of style. Megadeth and Mustaine in particular are pretty highly regarded in most metal circles and I would hazard a guess that there are many more people that list him as one of their big influences on guitar than... who plays guitar for Tool?

Tool was awesome up through Lateralus. 10,000 Days was all circle jerky and self masturbatory. Basically they decided they like the trippy triplet vibe and just play the shiat out of that. I saw them for both tours and after the second I was super meh. Tickets were pretty expensive and I left there saying, "won't do that again". Tool is either too proggy or not proggy enough, I can't decide. Dream Theater is one of my other favorites so I'd say too proggy.

I think that Dave thinks he is himself reasonable; the real problem is, as Coop said in the quote above, many musicians are uninformed idiots.

Mustaine is right. Those people in Aurora died for some left-wing facist wet dream, and Obama will probably get re-elected in 2012 as a result. Say goodbye to the entire Bill of Rights as the leftists invade every aspect of your lives while simultaneously raising taxes to astronomical levels.

Um, guys? Dave's been crazy all his life. It just seems that most of you didn't notice it back when his crazy was on the left instead of the right.
And btw, I'm a friggin' Jew with English as a third language and even I can tell that all his "Satanic" lyrics were written by a Christian about what he imagines "Satanism" to be.

All that bullshiat aside though, I'm sad about Dave. He's made some great songs in the '80s, some great albums in the '90s and after a series of shiat albums he'd actually managed to return to form with "System". But he's been rehashing it ever since (what, three times now? I stopped caring after the one with the sample from those GI Joe vids). On the bright side, he's a far better performer than he was in the glory days and at this point, when all that people really want him to do is play the oldies, I guess it's good enough.

HeartBurnKid: Carn: He's still putting out good music, although I'd say Endgame was way better than Thirteen. Millenium of the Blind Is the coolest off the new one, but looking at the lyrics you gotta wonder about Dave's grasp of recent history and current events.

That's the best off the new album?

Goddamn, Megadeth truly has turned into a self parody.


Yeah, Endgame was substandard. It's like that ugly chick that should be beautiful: All the parts are there, and in and of themselves, the parts are ok, but together, they just make an ugly impression. I can't quite put my finger on it, but MEgadeth's last album was just stale, flat, over-produced, or something, I don't know. I've worried that I've grown too old to appreciate Metal, but Anthrax's latest and Lamb Of God's latest both kick ass all over the place, so it can't be me, Dave has just lost it.

I wonder how long till Megadeth is playing clubs in America ala Man-O-War but still huge in South America n stuff. Dave shoulda hung up his guitar after United Abominations, Megadeth hasn't had a solid single or song since then, and that album was just good. Their last great album was The System Has Failed which was almost 9 years ago. A freaking decade of lameness. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Add in diatribes like this crazy crap, and I'm all but done with the band. Great thing about old albums, they don't change when the artists do. I have all the old CD's as well as the redone ones Dave did back in the early 2000's.

Their relevancy is no longer viable in the world of metal, and their albums are shadows of their once greatness. This coming from the biggest Megadeth fan out there. I've driven 800 miles to see them live and even have the tour shirt from the first time I saw them in 1984!!! It's threadbare and full of holes, but I still have that fooker.

man metaphysical: RoyBatty: To protest his idiocy, I just downloaded their entire discography and then deleted it.

Does that work?

Of cause not. You have to burn it ONTO CD and then burn THED CD

No, you burn the disks, take them outside, throw them up in the air and turn them to dust with a baseball bat. It's awfully cathartic when there is a fine foil dust falling all around. I discovered it back in the early days of burning after my 5th 'coaster' in a row. One nice solid swing, and they literally disintegrate. Best thing is, if you miss, they usually stay intact, and you can try again for full effect.

The microwave is cool too, but not quite as much of a load off... More geeky than anything.

Instead of channeling his drug fueled late night sessions into kick-ass metal albums that transcended the times and still play well today, he has decided in his new drug fueled haze to derp and herp about farking politics.

I would rather be stuck in a room full of angry drunks and cocaine addicts than forced to be alone with a single fundie.

At least the room full of angry drunks and coke heads ensures a good buzz for me. The fundie would end in death by derp.

If you're listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you're a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we're morons. We sleep all day, we play music at night and very rarely do we sit around reading the Washington Journal.  -Alice Cooper

I love Alice. He's a lot smarter than most people give him credit for.


He know's a lot about American history.

Alice Cooper: Well, I'm a regular visitor here, but Milwaukee has certainly had its share of visitors. The French missionaries and explorers were coming here as early as the late 1600s to trade with the Native Americans.
Pete: In fact, isn't "Milwaukee" an Indian name?
Alice Cooper: Yes, Pete, it is. Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

And the scary thing is, these guys aren't even a little unique. Judging from the facebook posts I see and the wackadoodle e-mails I get, most people are this over-the-top crazy.

I don't get it. I mean, Dubya is the guy that was doing everything he could to start the apocalypse, and he's the guy directly responsible for spending in the trillions on the wars, and getting a few thousand people killed over WMDs that didn't exist... and people are foaming at the mouth over Obama and health care? Are people's memory really that short? Are they just retarded? Are they racist? All of the above?

I know someone who is convinced that Obama is the actual antichrist. He has said that if Obama serves another term, he will force everyone to have the mark of the beast and America will be a communist country like Nazi Germany. (nevermind that Nazis were fiercely opposed to communism.)

WTF is wrong with people?

"You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into."

As someone with "mostly hinged" Limbaugh-lovin' teabagger family and friends, I wish like hell there was a way to step in... but once these guys stake out a position, there's no changing it. All the evidence in the world just makes them grab hold even tighter to their beliefs because otherwise they have to face the prospect that they're dipshiats who've spent years being conned by a fat junkie asshole who probably daydreams about caramel-colored pre-pubescent boys.

Yep. Knew this guy who was a huge drunk. When I met him he was in AA and almost unbearable. He smoked liked a chimney and replaced beer with Ginger Beer, which he drank by the case. Like, 28 in two days drank. He grew to not like me because I would not give him money for just being at certain events. Seriously, he thought he deserved my money and possessions (I sold him a jacket and he wouldn't pay me and wouldn't return it) and did not speak to me for a few years, always referring to me as "the coont" because he could not mooch off me.

Eventually we booted him out of the organization when he got pissey with us for making fun of the meltdown he had when, after 28 Ginger Beers, he found he couldn't sleep and went mental. Like, seriously mental. Screaming that he "COULDN'T SLEEP" mental.

Also, for Fark's sake, he works two hours a day in a contract janitorial job as a big box retailer (he cannot even wear a nametag), biatches about his veteran status (served three years as a grease jockey for a reserve squadron in California and expects people buy him free food as a "thank you" for his 1989-1991 hitch, oh and has wasted his GI Bill years ago on courses that he either slept in on or outright flunked because he never attended) and is, of course, is a hard core Romney supporter despite earning less then most of us do in an hour for a full shift.

But god, just listening too him act like he was better than us because of his AA bullshiat. Drove me nuts. Once at an event we were sitting there when this scraggly guy came up to him and beckoned him over. They proceeded to have a secret conversation. They were in AA together and he acted like he was spying for the Queen or something.

I at least noticed he was crazy left. He had a few good commentaries on the military industrial complex but they weren't groundbreaking insights he just said those observations in a clever way. I always wanted to pat him on the head and say "bless your heart" when he went into some of his "more creative" theories.

Drug addicts have a natural addicted personality, so they need to find something to be obsessed with that isn't drugs. Mustaine like other drug addicts found God, thanks to how AA was made by Jungian theory. However, he could of went the Alice Cooper route, and got addicted to golf.
