    Yeah, it's the first line from King Of Pain.

    There's a little black spot on the sun today.
  3. The T.V. Show Thread

    Ah, ok, I've got it all mixed up... I also thought that the actors who played Eddie and Shauni were only there for the first two seasons, but I just read that they also did season 3. The show was probably at its best when that lawyer guy was still in it who couldn't make up his mind about being a lawyer or a lifeguard. The episodes I will never forget are the ones where one of them dies due to a shark attack and the one where Eddie sees a mysterious woman running on the beach at the end of the day, and it reminds him of his sister, so he goes looking for her. Both of them freaked me out as a young kid.
  4. The T.V. Show Thread

    As a 90's kid, I grew up with shows like Baywatch. I think the first two seasons pre-Pamela were somewhat decent when they had more serious storylines, but after season 2 when they almost got cancelled, it became all about ratings and eye candy, with dreadful acting and storylines. For a kid probably still entertaining, but I can't imagine as an adult even remotely enjoying any of that now.

    I doubt anyone is too lazy to make a tweet or post something on instagram.

    So... is it because he's lazy or useless? Or both?
  8. New Melissa Reese Article

    I have no idea if she lied, but if she did, maybe because many people are ageists? Especially regarding women? Maybe because she's insecure about her age and feels the need to lie about something like that? I don't know, there can be so many reasons really.
  9. New Melissa Reese Article

    I don't think this is a good argument... ''I would have done this or that''... well, it's not you, and everybody is different, it's as simple as that. So what if she doesn't know some of the stories from way back? Not everyone is stuck in the past.
  10. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    Awesome. You should watch this video then from one of the songs on Young Modern. It's based on Mondriaan's art and also makes references to dada. It's pretty cool, Yeah, I think most people outside of Australia were over Silverchair by then, or just wanted them to make heavy rock and not experimental art/pop music. It's a shame.
  11. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    It really is a fantastic record. Personally, I think it's their best. However, emotionally speaking I was attached the most to Neon Ballroom, the one prior to Diorama. That's the record where Daniel Johns found his voice and started writing personal and great songs for the first time. It's a very dark record and I was a depressed, angsty teenager when it came out, haha, just like Daniel when he wrote it, so I guess that is why I could relate to it so much! It has some filler, but also some of his finest songs. Young Modern is my third favourite, but still really good and it shows how he evolved as a songwriter and moved away from the heavier rock that you can still hear on the previous records. Cool that you like the art. I like Mondriaan's early work but I am not into abstract at all. It's like a foreign language to me, I just don't get most of it. Maybe I should check out the museum in his hometown and get more of an appreciation. Yeah, I don't know why such a tiny country has produced so many famous painters. Maybe it's something in the water? Although I can't draw for shit!
  12. US Politics/Elections Thread

    This is partly why certain people respond so intensely to the ''zwarte pieten'' discussion. All things considered, are all these changes so immense? So a few street names are changed, or a few statues are taken down, or a character from a childrens' celebration is altered slightly, all for a good reason. Change is a part of life, and there should be plenty of things out there to make you feel connected to your ancestors that are way more significant than some statue that some of your ancestors may or may not have walked past a hundred years ago.
  13. US Politics/Elections Thread

    This is pretty much my sentiment exactly. Personally, I don't really care, and knowing me, even if I were part of a group that has been discriminated against, I probably still wouldn't care about all of this because that is just how I am wired. However, people seem to miss some empathy here. Just because I don't really care, doesn't mean I can't understand that other people might care passionately, for valid reasons, so who am I to have a problem with changing street names or removing statues?
  14. US Politics/Elections Thread

    In my country some people want to rename street names that are named after a general from the VOC, who was a notorious slave trader. It's one thing to mention people like that in history books and educate people about the VOC, which was an important period, but if people take offence, for the right reasons, then maybe it's time to change those street names and take down those statues.
  15. US Politics/Elections Thread

    I'm sure they do and I don't agree with action at all in how he perceives the way things are now compared to the 90's, or at least I don't share the same opinion, but I'm merely saying that for him, and probably a lot of people, their school days in the 90's weren't like those crappy teenage shows but tough times. But I am sure it was that way before the 90's too, and I bet it's still that way now at some schools.
  16. US Politics/Elections Thread

    But I believe he was referring to his experiences in school, which has nothing to do with television shows, so he doesn't have to ''romanticize'' anything, just draw on his own experience.
  17. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Uhm... yes, on television, not the real world.

  19. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    I personally like Diorama more, but Young Modern is still really good and his voice is phenomenal. The cover art is based on Piet Mondriaan's art. (don't know if you are familiar with him). The White Stripes named one of their records ''De Stijl'' after the art movement and also used it for their album cover. Yeah, he's pretty eccentric and has been through a lot, but a heck of a singer and an amazing songwriter for sure. I haven't really been into the stuff he's been doing after Silverchair broke up because he has been making RnB/dance/electronic music mostly for the last ten years and that's just not my cup of tea, but lately he's been posting pictures on instagram where he's playing guitar, so who knows... maybe he is returning to a more rock/pop style again.
  20. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    You did, Ana's Song. That's probably the only time I ever received a like for posting a Silverchair song. I remember talking to MyPrettTiedUpMichelle about Silverchair on here and she knows how amazing they were. It's just a shame that most people (at least outside of Australia) are only familiar with those first two records when they were still a teenage rock band and not too original. Because it's not until the third record that they started to evolve and became so much more. People are missing out. Here is another song that is a good example of their evolved sound (heavy orchestra and pop influences) and talent;
  21. What Are You Listening To? 2020

    The fact that I hardly ever get a like for posting a Silverchair song makes me believe that this band is very underrated or most people hardly know them,
  22. Bill and Ted 3

    I watched the first one, maybe even the second one, and I'm all for silly and stupid movies every now and again, but this was just awful. So I'll pass.

    I made a reference to pooping in public in here yesterday and you can count on dazey for the usual fart jokes. That's not good enough for you?
