I took my first dose of Gabapentin at 9:25pm. It’s 9:27pm now. Let’s see how this medication does for me over the next few hours, or whatever. First, I thought this was going to be Pregabalin, but I suppose they’re similar enough.

(The) Melvins have the musicianship and showmanship that could have made them the biggest band in the world. If they cared. They would have been bigger than Nirvana if they removed anything weird about their slightly inaccessible brand of heavy rock. They have the relentless work ethic to compete with The Beatles. Would compromising their sound be worth the money and fame? Would they still be the same Melvins? Or would they fade from relevance?
Re:Zero asks if a social recluse could become a hero. We’re dropped along with Subaru into a fantasy world that quickly rejects him. After being saved by a heroic dream girl, our budding hero learns to survive, while yielding a curse superpower that revives him after making grave mistakes.
Concerts can be a gamble. While it’s fun to see the city, getting to some venues can be difficult and there’s a lot of waiting around that can leave you drained, especially if you have to wake up at a decent hour the next morning. Some bands like Van Halen have a terrific early catalogue and are terrible live, yet others like Blondie, X, and especially Willie Nelson might be better now than when they started. Where does Shonen Knife fit in?
