Everyone straight up ignored my post... ._.

Notice me Senpai!  :lol:
Yeah Pretty much :lol:

The thing is, brilliant songs like You've Never Been Right, or The Fool, The Meddling Idiot come from the same emotional source as what we're talking about.
It's crucial. If it wasn't there, the Melvins' songs just wouldn't sound the way they are.

Totally agree. One of my favorites is "Let It All Be" which sounds like it should be a zen statement, but it really seems to be a direct takedown of a fellow music professional. I grew up in a house with no empathy, where tough love and stoicism were the virtues that hid stubbornness and defensiveness. I had to work through all that as an adult to become someone worth being around. But when I hear the cold condescension and righteousness in some Melvins songs and in Buzz's persona, it does click with something that I'm not allowed to let out in polite conversation. I don't need a mosh pit or a call to rebellion. But a bitter, cryptic missive wrapped in tricky riffs is a thrill I can only get from the Melvins.
Yes, exactly! When you know someone's wrong (or straight up Vile, or a Maggot) or circumstances are bad, and/or you feel psychotic, but you can't do much about it, that's when these songs really hit the spot. You can find reflection and understanding for these lingering feelings and thoughts that you can't express in a meaningful way. It's like the Melvins do it for you while also supporting you with kickass instrumentation, and you get that needed freedom to say "fuck you" or "fuck this" and feel great about it.

I liked the last line of your post. It reminded me of what I did in my 20s. There were a few people around that it just felt better to ignore rather than to wonder why I didn't get on with them (friends of friends, etc). Never looked back.
Uh... well, you just took the addendum and missed the actual point.

My point was it's unreasonable to demonize a person for just one trait or flaw.
It's the worst when people assume that some flaw means there's no good in that person at all, or that EVERYTHING about that person is flawed.
Because it doesn't.
Again – you are not required to like the person, but give credit where credit is due.
Like I said, Buzz wouldn't get to where he is if he wasn't Buzz. Even if he oversteps the boundary sometimes.

Interestingly enough, Kevin Rutmanis kind of opened my mind about this.

I'd give you an example but I'm afraid to drag politics in this. You can probably guess.
But any of his achievements beneficial to the people get swept under the rug and instead he's only judged by the dirt people keep slinging.

Same with Buzz. Some people in the topic said his jabs at other artists discredit him, I don't agree.
It's bad still but it's a part of what allowed him to get to where he is now.
You can't deny the positive side of it just because you don't like the negative.
In other words, try to judge people fairly, taking your negative bias into account.

Before watching I was afraid Buzzo's voice would sound cringy, but it turned out to be actually weirdly on point.
The Paranoid riff creeping in and the floor squeaking gave me the most chuckles.

*audio only*

From https://www.facebook.com/DavesPicturesOfPictures/

"Ok...I'm finally getting my shit together with converting my audio tapes. I now post for your consideration, a historical document if you will. May 1992. I drove up to Gainesville to see Melvins at the Hardback. But Buzz had gotten really really sick and flew home. Dale and Joe Preston played a full set anyway. I called them the Elvins. Listening to this tape after these decades passed, they actually did a pretty good job. But at the time we were pissed we drove over 200m round trip to see a Buzz-less Melvins. Here's the 1st few minutes of that show.

Has anybody else ever heard of Melvins doing a show like this?"

Oh wow.
Thanks Dave and Meezer.

Something tells me the band are cooking something up. A Rolling Stones album a Sabbath EP. Could all this be related somehow?
I'm pretty sure it will all be compiled into that "history of rock" album project they mentioned a while ago.
The new versions of Leech and With Yo Heart Not Yo Hands are probably a part of it too.

a small part of me is surprised anyone from MELVINS was interested in covering a Black Sabbath song.

but then again.. the almighty dollar is highly motivational.    this will sell like wildfire.
I'm sure Buzz likes Black Sabbath more than he wants to admit.
They've already done Black Sabbath covers and not for the dollah.
For all his talk of the Stones, Beatles and the importance of the classics there's no way he doesn't respect the founding fathers of heavy metal.
He just doesn't want to show it much.
They just don't worship them like, say, Sleep do.
He just has to say his contrarian thing every time, come on it's Buzz.
Of course has to mention they were more into Black Flag than Black Sabbath so people don't go thinking they were ripping off Black Sabbath when they built their sound, because that's not what happened, they grew from another scene. He doesn't want anyone building obvious false connections.
Regarding Ozzy he just obviously thinks his life decisions weren't that wise, but that's personal.
That's all there is to it.

11: Just curious from a fashion standpoint, who makes your awesome stage wear? The sweaters and tunics with psychedelic patterns, geometrics, and eyeballs?

Buzz: The mumus? They are made by a girl named Rebecca Sevrin from Montreal. I knew her from a band called Frightwig, and she had worked as a costume designer in Hollywood. She wanted to make me some mumus. She does really good work.
Nice to hear that question answered.

something about that performance on the video really felt all over the place. So much so that it shocked me. I suppose it could just be the mix or how the room sounded because i can't imagine it was the band.
No drums.

I don't think an old Blu-Ray player will have an issue playing this. Also, a new Blu-Ray player is $50.
I'm talking about a 100% US Blu-ray player that is connected to a voltage converter (in Chile, it's 220V).
What?! WHY?!?! The region verification is on the software level, not hardware! :shock:
On most players you can switch the region lock off at a press of a few buttons! o_o
(Sorry, I don't know why I think everyone knows this, but it should be common knowledge)
Here's the list of instructions for every player: https://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks

Just look for the one that's cheap and good normally and see if it's in this list - problem solved.

I'm pretty sure that after the Fantômas shows in Russia, Buzz said he's cool on ever going back over there.
:cry:

what a blast it would be, if Melvins played in Turkey for the first time! Russia for that matter. In fact, Russia is a huge market on alternative and metal, so perhaps Melvins should try Russia, St Petersburg and Moscow?
I never had much hope after learning about their bad experience with Fantomas,
then Boris came to us in 2016 and 2017 and I got hopeful again,
but now Oscar's post lowered my hope again.

Heh. I was hoping a month's break would give some slight changes in the setlist.

From a purely aesthetic point of view, i wish Steve would use that bass all the time over that hideous, pointy white thing he uses lately. The one above just looks so damn cool.
Hah, we're in a 100% disagreement on this. This is literally the complete opposite of what I think of those two basses.
That's cool of course. Do you like the white more because it is a bit weird looking maybe and fits in with the Melvins oddball stage look? I suppose in that way it makes sense.
I just like that shape, it's hard to say why exactly, I just do.
The white color also goes well with it, it's more visible in the dark and contrasts with the strings.
With its sharp jagged edges I feel most like calling it an "axe" than any guitar...
It looks like a weapon and it's called the Warlock... – how much cooler does it get than this?
