Victimhood culture. Coming to a Tastyspleen server near you.

Maybe this is a little bit "shit talking", but there's a point here that I think needs to be made.

I was on the DM server a few minutes ago. I played probably 1 or 2 hours, then hopped into spectator mode and started prattling my typical weirdness, quoting an old meme I've recently had stuck in my head.

The other person there appeared to have no clue what I was talking about. So I describe it, mentioning that it has a bunch of pictures of a "fat retarded girl". To which "whickie" replies, "Not cool. My grandkid has downs."

*sigh* One of THOSE people.

He then proceeds, in predictable fashion, to insist that I'm a dumb fat kid living in my dads basement... how original. ::)

I'm sorry you choose to be offended by my words. But I am not sorry that my words offend you. It's just noises you make with your mouth, scribbles on paper, and shapes on a computer screen. Your individual circumstances and prejudices are not MY fault.

There are many possible perspectives to have on such a thing...

Is it terrible having a kid with downs syndrome? Is it such a burden? Does your sweet little kid know what a fucking ultimate bummer they are to you?

I have friends who have died in car and motorcycle accidents. Should I expect no one else to ever make a joke about car accidents lest they offend me? I have friends who have died as a result of murder. Should I expect no one to make jokes about murder or to ever utter the common saying, "If you _____, I'm gonna kill you.", or "He's gonna kill me if I don't ______."?

Perhaps no one should ever say fucking ANYTHING EVER AGAIN, lest we inevitably and unavoidably offend someone else.

This is not an attempt at participating in "competitive victimhood", as the above link describes. To the contrary, if you seek to be a victim of my all-inclusive sense of humor... where I make fun of all things and everyone equally (how fucking progressive of me, huh)... I will certainly oblige you, you RETARD. NOT SORRY.

I would shoot you a bird, but nobody can shoot anyone middle fingers anymore because it offends this guy.

Still playing GTA Online. Almost got my character to rank 1000. I'm at 990 right now.

Anyway. Something I saw on reddit.

Digitech must be trying to clear out all their DOD pedals. They have some incredible prices on their old compact reissues. Most of them are 60% to 70% off.

This bundle in particular caught my eye. The Phasor 201 and Envelope Filter 440 bundle for 80 bucks.

A few months ago I was considering cashing in some of my Guitar Center e-gift card codes I get for doing online surveys on a used one of those Phasor 201's they had listed about 59 bucks. At 80 for the bundle, that works out to 40 bucks per pedal, even better than the used price... and it's BRAND NEW. Probably gonna be ordering myself this one. The rest are just overdrive and distortion pedals, which I really don't need anymore since I bought a good amp with drive that sounds better than any pedal can.

Also had an opportunity to try out a Friedman Dirty Shirley head this past weekend. They sound pretty good, the EQ is very shapable and responsive. I compare it to my Orange Rockerverb mkIII, which kinda doesn't have the most shapable EQ to it. My Orange head lacks the ability to really boost the highs to ear piercing levels with the EQ, whereas on the Friedman Dirty Shirley with the help of the "presence" knob in addition to the standard low/mid/high 3-band EQ, you can totally screech it up with the highs. Friedman's website says it's based on a modified Marshall JTM45, which is immediately what I thought when I played it, that it sounded like one of the Marshall Plexi's AC/DC would've used, only boosted with some extra drive. It's got two 5881's in the power stage, which is kinda nice. It's got that nice mid-range bark like a Marshall with EL34's, but not as soft and fluffy as EL34's sound. Wasn't really familiar with the 5881 sound and feel before, but I'd put right in the center between EL34's and 6L6's. It's the best of both worlds. Honestly, at this point, if someone told me I could retube my Orange head with 5881's, I might try it.

It's a one channel amp though. (For a "gigging" amp, I DEMAND 2 footswitchable channels) No onboard reverb. Does have an effects loop though. Only 40 watts. And it sells for about 2800 I think. Meh, I still think my Orange head is the much better deal.

Also bought an EHX Tone Corset compressor weekend before last. I was originally planning on getting a MXR Super Comp, but this thing was the same price and was actually IN STOCK (unlike the MXR). I wanted get that super-tight Nashville chicken-pickin' kinda sound on my Stratocaster, and it sounded good in the store. But on my amp, all it did was boost the notorious background hum (see earlier posts about my amp right after I bought it), which is NOT what I want any of my fucking pedals to do. So I'm probably gonna be  taking it back and forgetting all about ever owning a compressor pedal. ::)

Also...  :spam4:

Anybody up for a casual bowl season pick'em kinda bracket kinda game kinda whatchamacallit kinda thing? Just go through all the bowl games and pick who you think will win. No spreads, nothing complicated like that, just pick the winners. No prizes, no money, just for fun. 1 point per correct prediction.

You can print out an easy reference sheet here:

Print it, circle your predictions, post them in a post here when you're ready. Deadline for valid submissions is December 20th at 2pm Eastern (start time of 1st game of bowl season).

And I predict that LSU will ABSO-FUCKIN-LUTELY DESTROY Georgia in the SEC Championship next weekend. OR... Georgia will really surprise me and keep it a close competitive game... but will still lose, regardless. So if they lose, I won't be too shocked or upset. And if they win, I'll be pleasantly surprised. Out of anyone else projected to get a spot in the playoffs, I think LSU is the only team Georgia can't beat. In other words, I think whoever wins the SEC Championship will go on to win it all.

Like I said,... Congratulations on the LSU Tigers becoming... or going to be becoming... the 2020 National Champs. I ain't mad. The better team definitely won. Georgia didn't deserve it this year at all. After losing to fucking SOUTH CAROLINA of all teams, and barely holding off Auburn and Texas A&M from coming back late in the games, I knew LSU was gonna trash them. As long as SOMEONE from the SEC wins it all... who ISN'T named Nick Saban.

I still say Georgia would've trashed Ohio State though. Whoever they play is probably gonna trash them. I'm sorry, but if Justin Fields was actually worth a shit, he'd be QB at Georgia. He had several opportunities to prove his worth, and Fromm was clearly better... and Fromm isn't "good" either.

My team had a path to the big one, and they got the shit kicked out of them. Not mad though. On the contrary, I'm quite content and happy. Alabama didn't win their division. Alabama also got butt-fucked out of their yearly SEC Championship-less bypass route to the playoffs. What's not to like in this best of all possible worlds? :thumbsup:

#5 Georgia takes on #7 Baylor in the Sugar Bowl on January 1st. Not a big playoff bowl, but certainly not a bullshit consolation prize either. Kinda sucks that they have to play Baylor though. Probably won't be a very good game.

Michigan vs Alabama on Jan 1st. LOL. I'm almost positive Alabama is gonna pound the living shit out of them, but it would be soooooooo funny if Michigan actually won. For at least 5 minutes anyway. After that people would start talking shit about how great Michigan is... and we can't have that bullshit. So Alabama had damn well BETTER win.

Penn State vs Memphis in the Cotton Bowl, Dec 28.  :zzz: Penn State isn't totally terrible. Why they gotta pair them with fuckin' Memphis? Many... no, MOST... of the matchups this year look to be fucking boring and easily predictable.

Wake Forest going to a bowl game? Really? If you say so, hehe. Way to go Wake Forest.  :bananaw00t: (Apparently they went 8-4 this year. Wow.)

Playoff predictions: Clemson demolishes Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. LSU handily beats Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl. I don't forsee that LSU will dismantle them like they did Georgia, but I don't forsee Oklahoma ever holding a lead at any point in the game after the 1st quarter either. Finally, LSU will crush Clemson fairly easily to win the National Championship.

How about a photo montage in honor of my least favorite team. Fuck you, Alabama. Fuck you, Nick Saban. And I hope you take that in the tender, kind and loving way in which I meant it.

Carolina panthers fire Ron Rivera. There's a lot of mixed views on this. Off the top of my head, Rivera has won his south division 3x, nfc championship once along with a super bowl appearance, and has won coach of three year twice within 8 years. That is probably... 5 playoff appearances probably, as many as 6 and a minimum of 4. That's not bad, but it's not great either. I think most would say that's above average. The panthers trend wasn't looking so hot and it may have been a good call. What's surprising is that I didn't know the Panthers had such a high standard of greatness lol. Definitely has me scratching my head. If they find someone good it'll be a good call.

It's nowhere near as stupid as the Atlanta Falcons and owner Arther Blank's haphazard willingness to fire coaches and players from the head coach down to the fucking water boy... while stubbornly refusing to fire his butt-buddy boy-toy GM Thomas Dimitrov no matter how fucking terrible the Falcons become.

Not long ago they signed Matt Ryan to a ridiculously lucrative contract extension, and you just watch,... I have a sneaking suspicion... at the end of this season or the next, they'll want to fire him, at which point they'll have to dump a fuck-ton of guaranteed money on him to buy out of his contract, and it'll fist-fuck their ability to obtain a good replacement. 

...but they'll keep little Tommy Dimitrov with his lesbian haircut and "Queer Eye" thick framed hipster glasses and give him a yearly raise.

Seriously. FUCK THAT GUY. What a homo.

Auburn just country-mouth-fucked Alabamas free SEC Championship bypassed ride to a playoff spot.

THANK YOU, AUBURN.  :ilysign: :notworthy: :notworthy: :heart: :heart:

I'm now an avid Auburn fan ...until next season, anyway.

And I predict that LSU will ABSO-FUCKIN-LUTELY DESTROY Georgia in the SEC Championship next weekend. OR...
