Well.... my latest concern is that after years of despising country western music, strong feelings going back to the 50s, I have come to realize that I know most of the words to the songs from then. Almost as scary as realizing I know who Whoopee John Wilfahrt is.

That one really scared me. Good thing I don't know any professional wrestlers..... Oh Oh!

The growls are an acquired taste, but the reason I listen to metal is *exactly* that the musicians are top-notch. Pandora tells me I like it because of complicated arrangements, and I can't argue that. I am a casual musician myself (I play 5 instruments anywhere from respectably (oboe) to professional-level (clarinet and saxophone)), but classical puts me to sleep unless I'm performing it. Metal is all the complexity of classical with an edge. I also like DC's home-grown music, Go-Go, because it's complex...it's old-school hip-hop with talented performers set in an unusual time signature (5/8 time) and usually exploiting minor keys.

Also, metal musicians don't worry about being PC. They say what's on their mind, take it or leave it. The bad ones shock for shock's sake. The good ones say something profound. Sure, it is often hard to understand them, but when you take the time to hear them, sometimes you hear something you'd never think you would in something that sounds so angry and irreverent.

Haha me too. Never did have a green thumb.

Plus you gotta add **** (literally) to get those seedlings to grow! Makes it even less attractive of an idea...

I know, I'm just joking, the term makes my skin crawl too.


SRT, I'm curious this will sound like a dumb question but I can't resist asking - is the Centurion made of metal? Someone told me it was plastic and I was like you gotta be kidding me. That is the "ultimate" card in my eyes so I'm dying to know what it's made of?

"The titanium-crafted "Centurion" card was first issued as an upgrade for all plastic U.S. "Centurion" cards in the first half of 2006, with the titanium version being rolled out to certain other countries as well."

According to Wikipedia

Also, "Some Centurion customers have purchased automobiles using the card or made purchases exceeding €1 million. The card has no preset limit in theory. In practice the authorization is decided upon past payment and spending patterns ; the largest purchase supposedly ever made on one exceeded $52 million for a private jet by Victor Shvetsky.[2]However many retailers object to the high commission charges and prefer to offer a cash discount. The Card is used for refueling superyachts and private aircraft where the bills can frequently exceed $100,000."

Please tell me you're not "Kimmy1996" on FICO. She's like the "anti-BearsAndTurtles". Just turned 18 and 6 for 6 on app requests including one in which she "c^ck-teased" her way into a $5000 CL by applying at a CU (apparently she has her own "web video" business.):

If she can find the right "dirty old man" at Chase, I bet she'll have a CSP by the end of the month.

I see BearsAndTurtles finally got approved for a WF card with a 1k limit. He's on a roll:

I saw that too... I guess WF is the new First Premier. I would send him a "congrats" message but 09 86'ed me. Good thing I have about 8 sockpuppets on FICO. Maybe I'll make like a responsible citizen over there, get promoted to mod and ban the mods (and anyone else who mentions "garden"). They'd sort it out eventuality, but it'd be fun while it lasted.

I was getting sick of posting on FICO anyway. Everyone here is so much more fun anyways... everyone over there has too many issues...
