That's perfect! I have seen Lethal Weapon 1 and 2 probably over 200 times each. My mom loved Mel Gibson when I was a kid (before everyone found out he's a piece of shit) and so I saw a lot of his movies. My favorite was Lethal Weapon 2.

7 Seconds are straight edge too. You took my horrible joke.
Damn, I fucked up that in nearly every way possible. I should have known 7 Seconds are straight edge. Just another reason to have my punk card revoked.

If no one responds within a day or two I'll find this for you. Normally I'd do it quicker, but a little busy sorry :(
I completely understand. If you do get the time it would be much appreciated but if not, we can wait and hopefully find a babysitter next week.

We can't find a sitter and we really want to watch It. All of the torrent sites I used to go to are gone. Can someone please help us watch It? Streaming or torrents are fine.

7 Seconds would be so good if they just relaxed and had like one beer.

I used to say the same thing about Minor Threat.

Ya'll are crazy they're perfect
I was just joking/trolling with the Minor Threat comment because ya' know, straight edge. I need to work on my trolling.

Is it weird that I've been listening to a lot of the poppier rock that I used to roll my eyes at as a teenager/college student? All American Rejects are pretty heavy in rotation right now. Maybe I always liked bands like this but supressed the urge to listen due to fears of being ridiculed by the cool punk kids. It kind of sucked because I never quite fit in with the punk crowd but I really wanted to, I just didn't go full regalia like some. I'm not sure why. It's probably the early 90s grunge streak I had and was hanging onto way past the expiration date.

I'm not sure if the victim who first posted the allegations is the same person I'm thinking of in the google doc but one of the victims said that they decided to come forward in large part due to the Trump "grab em" tape. I then wondered that if Trump wouldn't have run for President, would this have come out? It also is really disappointing and crazy to think that Chris essentially did the types of things Trump bragged about having done. It just sucks because it just seems as I get older and interact with people more that there aren't a whole lot of people who don't have a very dark side to them.

I watched The Girl with All the Gifts a couple weeks ago and it was very enjoyable.
Good movie! I liked it too. I called my daughter "the girl with all the gifts" for like 2 weeks just because I'm weird.

and cause all I seem to listen to is emo music these days, the new Brand New album is actually really good.

Yes! I was just going to post that I've been listening to this. It is really good and I'm glad I'm not the only one who appreciates it. I wouldn't classify Brand New as emo. It's hard to categorize them and they are one of my favorite bands. I really love how they've changed pretty significantly with every album but still manage to be great. Not a lot of bands can do that. It's hard to believe this is the same band that put out Your Favorite Weapon which was a guilty pleasure album back when I was younger (as was Deja Entendu but for different reasons due to change in sound).

Also, a classic I didn't appreciate at the time (or felt I wasn't supposed to like) when I was younger:

As far as sad and shitty news one of the guys from dear landlord is up on murder charges after selling dope to someone who overdosed. Supposedly he's the "Chris clavin of heroin" according to people on facebook. Whatever the fuck that means. Pretty sad for him and the victims family
Yeah I don't know what's that means either but that sucks. I read the google document where people have shared their stories and my first thought was that Chris is the Bill Cosby of folk punk.

I wish Kimya Dawson would have said something earlier. I understand that a lot of people are/were scared because of Chris's social status but Dawson became much more well known than Chris as time went on. I know hindsight is 20/20 and all and I'm not wanting to sound critical of her this all just sucks so much. I really wish there would have been an intervention earlier so he could've gotten help earlier but at least he's doing that now (hopefully) and the victims can start working through it now too. I would think having Chris coming to their towns now and then would be a huge trigger previously and it would suck to know that your abuser is still out seemingly unchecked.

I wasn't thrilled with it, even though I think she has good intentions. However that asshole that keeps talking about her kid pisses me the hell off
I haven't seen it but that's fucked up if someone is talking about her child

Fun fact: someone had to send me a personal message telling me the truth about FRNTRNNR. I think it was Jer.

Can someone tell Brian Tightpants to come back and we can insult one another? It would be just like old times.

I also still think we should come up with a name for the board; something snappy, full of moxie that the kids will think is "groovy".

I saw an article that had Hannah's response and while I know this must be hard for her, I found it pretty shitty. I don't know if she's revised her stance and should probably research it.

This may be a stupid question but what does "bbs" stand for? If it's just a prefix that got attached automatically we should at least pretend it stands for something cool. Any ideas?

This is really random and sad but anytime I see parentheses (or brackets) around a person's name, it reminds me of how doofuses on the internet have started putting 3 of them around a person's name to identify them as Jewish. Strange times.

I've been talking to everyone I trust with any insight and feel like a creep but I also feel betrayed and want to know the extent of how shitty people have been.
Yeah this must be really hard for since you know Chris personally. I would feel betrayed too

Since I never got the full story on Paul B was this all part of the reason he left pix and the Bloomington scene? From comments of his on FB he seems pretty adiment about knowing about all this and having taken a stand several years back, but no one being on his side when he tried to do something about it.

Or are the two things completely unrelated?
I was wondering the exact same thing because he's accusing others of knowing and not saying anything which would mean that he would have known for years as well. Did he ever say anything? Did anyone ever notice that Chris was almost exclusively interested in younger girls? What kind of red flags were there? I need to do some research because I'm behind as far as what's been said and done

Man I have a lot of thoughts and feelings about this.

Chris (founder of PIX) is getting accused of some pretty serious stuff. Serious enough where Ghost Mice have canceled their tour.

Apparently punks really aren't that much better than anybody else. 
I hadn't heard anything but when I saw this I looked and couldn't find any information. Links or details?

EDIT: I had to do a lot of digging and was able to find a Facebook post from the victim. I feel like the story is buried or maybe just hasn't developed to be out there. This sucks.

I'm not! Will she think it's weird if I'm like "I know your husband from the internet. I thought of your child's name. Be my friend so I can see pictures of her?" Haha
She knows where I got the name and I have mentioned you. I told her about the things you were telling us to try at the hospital and she's fine with it. I'm not going to lie, when Amanda first learned about the message board she didn't quite get it and was a little weirded out by me talking to other women online. Once she realized what it actually is though she didn't really view it as the standard "talking to other women on the internet" which is something that I think most spouses are a little freaked out by. Everything is cool though and I can just post more to my account (which I did yesterday). If we lived closer we could all meet. We don't have many friends around here so it would be nice. It's hard to make friends as adults especially when you have kids and are wrapped up in family stuff constantly

Haha awesome!
Check out the podcast Spare the Rock Spoil the Child! I listen to it with the kids and enjoy it too!

More Adelie pics please!
Her taught me how to post pictures on here but I don't remember how. I know it has to do with Imagur but I mess it up when I try. Are you friends with my wife on Facebook or follow her? She is better about posting pictures than I am but I could post some too.

General / Adelie's Top 5 Musicians/Bands
« on: August 17, 2017, 05:28:04 AM »
So I know a dude always talking about his baby can be annoying but my daughter, Adelie, loves music but she doesn't like just any music. It can be fast but it can't be too abrasive which means that while she definitely has a Nirvana onesie as well as a Nirvana hoodie, she's not a big fan yet. After trying different bands or singers, these are her favorites.

1. Elvis Presley (favorite song is "I can't help falling in love")
2. The Beatles (can't tell what her favorite song is of the Beatles but I can tell you that unlike her dad, Addy prefers early Beatles. They were playing the Beatles when she was delivered. We chose it because they asked what we wanted playing and it was one of the choices)
3. Michael Jackson (was almost #2 but while she really likes Michael Jackson, it's only a few songs that she really digs while with the Beatles I can play it for a long time and she's fine with it. Favorite song is "Rock with you".)
4. The Beach Boys (favorite song is "God only knows")
5. Jimi Hendrix (very weird but she seems to like a lot of Jimi Hendrix despite it being a little harder than her usual tastes. There's no favorite song that I can tell).

***Very honorable mention: whoever sings the Winni the Pooh theme songs from the movie from the 70s as well as the new adventures of Pooh from the 90s.

Amanda and I do play more kid oriented songs that we find online but I thought it would be fun to make a top 5 list of bands that we can both somewhat enjoy.

General / Happy Birthday to Becca!
« on: July 30, 2017, 06:24:55 AM »
I just wanted to take a minute to say happy birthday to Becca. I can't stress how much respect I have for her and how good of a person I think she is. Becca has always actively tried to help anyone on the board who is having problems and she was a great source of emotional support when I was going through a tough time with my wife and daughter in the hospital last month. Becca even came up with the first name of my daughter. I thinks it's pretty damn cool that someone can have such a positive impact on people that they've never met in person. Thank you Becca and I hope you have a great birthday.

I'm sorry. That sounds really frustrating. I am terrified of that age haha. I'm glad her relationship with her therapist is good. I wonder if she could use some one on one attention with you guys. I'm sure that's hard to admit or even recognize at that age.
We took her back to school shopping at the outlet stores an hour or so from where we live and went out to eat. It was 100 degrees and very humid so we left Adelie with my mother in law. Felicity did seem to enjoy herself but yeah she's not the best at admitting that she wants to spend time with us
