Protip if you have headlice: Rubbing Alcohol is an insanely effective way of treating it. Takes out the eggs too. Just soak your head in it for a bit and you're gravy. I did it over a bathtub, and when I dunked my head into the water to rinse and pulled it out it was just a flood of dead lice bodies.

It comes and goes. The worst part is the mental part where you worry if it's something that will kill you. I've started eating foods that are supposedly "anti-cancer" just in case it's something serious. Obviously, if it's a cancer, it's probably not going to be sent into remission or "cured" or whatever just by eating, but still. It probably doesn't hurt to keep a closer eye on what I eat (last night I screwed up and ended up drinking a herbal tea that supposedly has carcinogenic properties...oops. I'll make sure not to drink that again).

Alright..... My scalp is bleeding. My knowledge of bodily functions is rather modest, but I'm fairly sure that this isn't normal.


I've been having some health concerns, as well. My skin turns red easily, and I tend to have a red burning sensation that comes and goes on different parts of my body. My knee was burning a few nights ago, and when I looked at it, half of it was very red. It's hot to the touch, as well. It sorta reminds me of a "sun hitting you" kinda feeling. I also have a patch that's been on my side for months now. I fear it's some sort of lymphoma or skin cancer (the first doctor thought it was a fungus; the second thought it was eczema...it doesn't itch). I also have at least one sore in my mouth (stopped hurting days ago, but it's still there). This isn't really the place to post such things, but yeah.


does the burning sensation happen in the skin or is it a little deeper? It sounds kinda like inflammation actually, if it's deeper than the skin that is.

Deucalion, have you switched laundry detergents recently? Sometimes people can have pretty bad allergic reactions to some of the perfumes and other ingredients. I forget which one it was, but some years back I used a totally different brand and it made me itchy as hell with visible redness/rashes in some places. I just use that hypoallergenic kind now (it's the same price and smells nicer, so why not).

I think it might be deeper. Maybe. Unfortunately, I just read about a link between inflammation and cancer. Ugh.

I don't think we've changed laundry detergents (I live with multiple people, and I'm not the one who does the laundry, so I'm not sure).

Thanks for the replies so far, everyone.

Yeah, they should just start using uranium enriched fertilizer. Definitely makes agriculture more exciting. Could be ugly when this happens though.

So I just started playing guitar roughly 2-3 weeks ago. I've always wanted to pick it up, but have been apathetic in the past because I'm the drummer in my band and I've always loved drumming the most. But this time I have a different attitude. Learning another instrument could only be beneficial to my song-writing and help me see things from a different musical perspective!

Anyway, I've started out by learning some Bathory covers and just jamming some original stuff on my own. For all you shredders here, what would be your best advice to approaching the instrument? Should I stick with learning covers for the next few months, learning/perfecting scales, technique, etc? I know that the journey to approaching a musical instrument is completely up to the individual, but I'd just like to hear some friendly advice here if anyone's got it! Cheers! :beer:

Learn the basics of theory: what intervals are, and how they are combined to make scales/modes and chords.

I'm not a fan of AaL, but this argument drives me up the wall. It's like complaining about there not being enough atmosphere in any given Running Wild song. Who gives a shit? That's not the point of the music. You think they suck at what they do? Absolutely, fair enough. You think they suck at something they're not doing? Well that's a stupid thing to dislike them for.

That's completely unreasonable. You can't criticise Britney Spears for being irritating, lighter-than-air pop nonsense either, then, unless you can plausibly claim that her music fails to achieve what it attempts to.

Edit: Damn late, as always.

Hmm, thought I replied, I guess not.

I quite like AAL, but commenting on their riff writing skills is still a valid enough complaint. It's not like they're an ambient band or anything, they do have a fair few riffs on their albums, so it's worth mentioning well enough. Probably not the FIRST thing I'd recommend picking on them for, since only about 20% of their music is riffs and the rest solos and futuristic sounds/beats, but the riffs are there, and they're in a reasonably divisive style so it's not unreasonable someone would comment on disliking them.

Criticizing Britney Spears in 2013? Want to get in a shot at the Spice Girls while you're at it? Hanson maybe?

It's still stupid to criticize AAL for lacking metal riffs. You can criticize them for being boring or whatever, but not for lacking something that was never their purpose in the first place. Might as well complain that Merzbow doesn't have enough melodic guitar solos.

That's a rather poor comparison. Looking for metal riffs in heavy music is not nearly as arbitrary as that. What kind of relevance does Spears' being passé have here? If you think that somehow undermined my logic, you really missed the point.

And technically, criticising Merzbow for lacking melody is perfectly valid. The music is harsh and borderline unlistenable to most people. It's wholly withing reason for them to point out that they think the music sucks, even if it succeeded perfectly in what the band set out to accomplish with it.

AAL sucks dick.

Merzbow rules hard.

Britney Spears created some of the better pop hooks in recent memory (that violin piece in "Toxic" - got-damn)

I'm going to say hold off on learning any sort of complex music theory for now. I would say learning where each note is on the fretboard is a key tool that can be extremely helpful in the long run. Hell, I've been playing for over 10 years and I still don't know where certain notes are on the fretboard. I just got to a point where I knew which chords/techniques made what sound, and then I've just been writing riffs/songs ever since. I would say that as soon as you become interested in learning a certain aspect of guitar playing or music theory (whether it's a certain scale/mode, picking technique, etc), stop what you're doing and learn it. Practice practice practice!

Well after a few minutes of thinking, I decided to pre-order Fleshgod Apocalypse's new album. Despite the crappy cover art and the lackluster single they released a few weeks ago, I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt. What could go wrong right?

...RIGHT?

*crickets*

:P I'm assuming you're a pretty big fan of Fleshgod Apocalypse to pre-order their album considering you're not a fan of the material you've heard so far. I hope for your sake the rest of the album is an improvement to that craptastic single they've released.

Also, I can't get over Bosse-De-Nage's III - it's hella good.

I'm not doctor but that sounds really close to what I had going on when I had shingles last year. Have you ever had chicken pox? If so it could be shingles.

Why is the first world so cruel to me? First Dawnbringer album for 30 dollars plus the equal amount in shipping costs, second Dawnbringer album for a whopping 73 dollars plus shipping costs... Maybe I should send the band a message with the question if they are planning to re-release their older albums in the future because this is a little bit too much for me.

Criticizing Britney Spears in 2013? Want to get in a shot at the Spice Girls while you're at it? Hanson maybe?


I dunno, man, leave Hanson out of this... I always thought those girls were kinda hot.

I'm going to say hold off on learning any sort of complex music theory for now. I would say learning where each note is on the fretboard is a key tool that can be extremely helpful in the long run. Hell, I've been playing for over 10 years and I still don't know where certain notes are on the fretboard. I just got to a point where I knew which chords/techniques made what sound, and then I've just been writing riffs/songs ever since. I would say that as soon as you become interested in learning a certain aspect of guitar playing or music theory (whether it's a certain scale/mode, picking technique, etc), stop what you're doing and learn it. Practice practice practice!

Learn the basics of theory: what intervals are, and how they are combined to make scales/modes and chords.


Thanks for the advice, both of you!

Why is the first world so cruel to me? First Dawnbringer album for 30 dollars plus the equal amount in shipping costs, second Dawnbringer album for a whopping 73 dollars plus shipping costs... Maybe I should send the band a message with the question if they are planning to re-release their older albums in the future because this is a little bit too much for me.



That's a bitch. I spent about $85 US for Antestor's The Forsaken and Det Tep Liev or whatever it's called on ebay a little bit ago and when I get paid tomorrow I'll be dropping about $75 US on another CD I really want.

Whats even worse is that their aren't any working download links of those albums. So the only way I will ever be able to listen to them is through buying those insanly expensive copies, or Dawnbringer re-releasing them. I did just find out that they are actually re-releasing ALL their albums on vinyl, so maybe I'll just buy the vinyl versions. It's better than nothing. I dunno, buying those expensive copies is tempting, but they are second hand. They are being described as "in mint condition" and both sellers have a 90+ rating, so it seems legit.
