1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Automatic Kalashnikov http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0254151/ - This film takes a look at the man who developed the AK-47 and how his weapon has affected him...and how it has affected war...heavy heavy heavy stuff.

    Get Thrashed http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780524/ - Great movie about the rise of Thrash Metal.

    The Decline Of Western Civilization 1 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082252/ - Documents the LA punk scene.

    Another State Of Mind http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0198307/ -Follows Youth Brigade and Social Distortion on their 1984 tour. A great look at how even having the best intentions can end bad. An amazing look at the early Positive Youth hardcore scene.

    I just saw Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father

    It was very hard not to cry. I don't think I've watched anything as emotionally exhaustive.


    Seen a dateline episode about this case a couple of months back, pretty fucking ridiculous.

    Another vote for Dear Zachary. Should be on Netflix.

    I think Netflix also still has Art of the Steal available. Interesting story about the Barnes Foundation art collection getting taken over by outside philanthropic groups in Philadelphia.

    I'm currently on a nature documentary binge. Finished Planet Earth a few weeks back, now on Life. Simultaneously watch episodes of BBC's Frozen Planet.

    And people say government-backed things fail. Pssh.

    Watched this on Netflix. Pretty damn good. A lot of these true crime cases, I always wonder, where they really innocent or was there just no evidence/bad investigation? Not this one. Pretty ****ing sickening that they would go to trial on this case. Definitely one of those "prosecution run a muck" type cases.
