Customer service has always been lip service, we know that. Are you one of the ones who bitches about it, but keeps coming back for more punishment?

I bet he loves when shit like this happens.
one great thing about Slayer, you never have to question their intentions, which are to write and play face melting, blood soaked metal. That is why I love them.
this new album indeed delivers, TIGHT. Battering ram riffs, well produced, when I think of this type of music a braided steel cable comes to mind. During it’s manufacture, several smaller cords are brought together and braided forming one tight, hard cable, that is what happens when thrash is done properly.
Believe it or not, I’m still making my way through “You can’t go home again.”, it’s epic for sure, and I haven’t had a lot of time lately. But it is still fantastic. I think I read something else less memorable in the mean time.

By ourselves we won’t make a significant impact on the jobless figures, we will be a part of a greater whole, a paradigm shift called micro-business. the tens of thousands of small businesses that truly fuel the local economy. Together the micro businesses make a respectable figure, but alone, we are just consumers fueling bigger interests. I would like to raise awareness of us foot soldiers and the part we play. i would also like to talk about how we are driven by these bigger interests, how these entities make us believe we need to live according to an outdated social ethic that doesn’t reflect the clear reality of today’s society. i.e.- single income households, a house, 2.5 kids, a garage. really. it’s a mass delusion propagated by huge interests, who want you to believe that mom stays at home. the interests that believe that childcare is better left to T.V. and pharmaceuticals…
