Retweeted by Rob WeychertIf I ever become broadly influential, I hope I avoid having every stupid little thing I’ve ever created dragged into the light posthumously.@cole007 Good point. Looking forward to digging into your findings.@thepastrybox @hoyboy @cole007 I’ll check it out, thanks! But I think an in-person gathering might gain sharper insights than a survey.Really appreciate @hoyboy sharing his findings from Owner Camp. We should do something similar for freelancers. https://t.co/O6TXgps8VqThis Social Justice League comic by @sailorswayze kinda nails it. https://t.co/aoJoGyQzE7

@TommyRocket Maybe I’m splitting hairs. Metal as a broader genre has no shortage of titans. Maybe all sub-genres only have a few at the top.@TommyRocket What I find weird about thrash is that no one else even came close to the big four. I think most genres have more standouts.@monteiro @danielmall Related, initial scope assessments are difficult, which is why I’m interested in this: http://t.co/Ti4vK684nf@gjhead I hope that’s not a sarcastic thanks. :)@tom9d But then again, there’s plenty of other music I loved as a teen that I can’t stand now.@tom9d I often wonder if it would affect me the same way if I first heard it another time in life. Adolescence intensifies everything.@markboulton I don’t think that’s it either. There were tons of bands making that kind of music during that particular time.@markboulton That’s probably part of it, but it doesn’t explain why Reign in Blood is an enduring classic.@gjhead Not even just lyrics, though. Melodies, riffs, dynamics. Sonically, most bands’ catalogs have nothing to distinguish them.Thrash metal: So many bands have nailed the sound, but so few have written memorable songs. Maybe that’s why the “big four” bands dominated?

@danielmall Lovely. Thanks!@essl Thanks; Torque has potential but I think it’s a little too limited for what I’m trying to do.@jonathanspeir Thanks; Forza has the right feel, but I wish it had some condensed options.@markweaver Yowza, that is a workhorse. Even if I don’t use it this time, it’s a good one to have on the radar. Thanks!Looking for a font that evokes sports, with several weights and widths for display and small amounts of text (à la Knockout). Suggestions?

“Nothing is sacred, everything is awful, let’s have fun.” http://t.co/tni05V2IRW@blastcap Agreed. I wonder if the lack of depth is because those sub-genres were too recent to have the benefit of analytical hindsight.@blastcap To be fair, plenty of guys in preceding chapters also fit that description. But it’s true; the nu metal chapter is a slog.House of Cards, S02E08: Do all lobbyists have mad P.I. skills like Remy?
