It's 2020 so it was time to buy my first new vinyl record. I was introduced to Look Mum No Computer last week and I've really enjoyed his stuff, the crafty git has instrumentals exclusive to the EP and since it's all about the synths I wanted to hear them.
As promised, here's my latest vinyl haul, consisting of the discography of Swedish retro-prog sensation Hällas:




And since they came in the same box, here's @_Jules_ newest additions, which are special since it's not athmospheric black metal for once:

Katatonia's new album, which a critic described as "feeling like the album Tool might have made if they’d remembered what actual human emotions were."


And an alltime fave, Loreena McKennitt's mid-nineties celtic rock meets world music hit "The Mask and Mirror".


What's still on backorder, sadly, is Myrkur's brilliant move from Black Metal to (Neo)folk "Folkesang".

That's really cool. I rarely watch their stuff these days as their era of Japanese stuff does absolutely nothing for me. The Subarute was great though.

Most of their Subaru stuff that they've done isn't really my style either, something about this little car and the Christmas special they made really struck a chord with me. That car is one of the few Japanese cars I'd want in my garage given the chance.

:idiot:That critic clearly has no idea what they're talking about.
My complete and utter disdain for Tool is well know, so I'll stay out of this - but @_Jules_ , who is a Maynard superfan, actually agrees with the critic.

From the Telegrams: "I remember how much I was looking forward to the new Tool album and that nothing on it touched me emotionally. Seems like this critic had a similar experience."

I bought the cheapest POS pressure washer from Home Depot. $100 Ryobi electric thing. Works good for how little I’ll use it. A couple of years ago I used dads gas powered one and thought that was a bit ridiculous to wash a deck and walkway with. Seems to work well.

I want to pick one of those up to clean siding, cars, bicycles, etc. Not enough water pressure for more stubborn stuff.

Congratulations. You've passed the next stage or your man training - using a jetwash to write a curse word in the grime on your path.

You would have got extra bonus points if you'd written "Fuck Da Po-Po!" in letters big enough to be seen from your local police chopper and then called 911 to report a prowler in your back yard.
