Looks like he killed someone in a DUI. An utter travesty!

Yeah, to be clear, he's not dead, he's in jail... The lady he hit is dead.

He was driving 127 mph when the airbags deployed, blood alcohol level was .161 which is more than twice the legal limit, and had a loaded gun in this car. Also the victim was only 23 years old. He better not get a slap on the wrist like Stallworth.

Yeah, considering how quickly the Raiders washed their hands off of him, he is likely to do time. It is such a bad decision even if it is a first time offence and in this day and age where you can get an Uber 24/7, my mind boggles why anyone could be so stupid.

Travis Scott always came across as a slime ball, so nothing about him surprise me. I don't even think he has a genuine remorse for his actions, in his hometown nonetheless.

Eyewitnesses saying way more died than they're saying... Video of him watching and 'singing' (synthasized groaning) as they passed unconscious people over the barriers... The crowd begging him to stop the show because of all the injured people, but he plays on for 30 mins... Them playing weird nonrhythmic, "frequencies" all day leading up to the show...
There's a whole group of fans that think it was a ritual sacrifice...
I've been into music a long time... I remember when heavy metal was satanic... And trampling and stuff happened at concerts over the years... People have died, but the imagery coming out of this one is different... Shows a performer who seems fully aware of what's going on, doesn't care and in fact seems to be enjoying the spectacle...

Like what Jim Morrison talked about doing but never actually did... Dionysism... Although, I figure Jim was thinking more about getting loaded and having an orgy, rather than watching one of his crowds trample people to death...

yeah that's some ugly ****. My buddy in tame impala gave me tickets at the hollywood bowl and i was a little freaked out by that many people at a sold out show, while still being about to buy tickets to GWAR and having been in the serious crush of people, but people who used to always see someone in need of aid and come to their rescue in the middle of a metal pit.

Travis is a POS if he kept playing while knowing and having the mic to sort things out, but also every person who isn't down to make a stand and get it right is too.

Read on Twitter


And just because GWAR actually almost had Grohl in the band and it's funny even if he is likely a great guy (especially compared to scott):

Did your smell and taste sense return?

Had Covid in Oct 20', pretty much some pain around the sinuses that went away after a couple of days.

That and the smell/taste stuff. For me it was pretty bad, I regained my smell back after a month and the taste just gradually, I still couldn't feel some tastes 2-3 months after.

And one year away, I still can't eat certain ingredients. Garlic tastes like **** now for example, I literally can't eat anything with garlic on it.

Congrats man. I had a daughter seven months ago, it has been a wild ride ever since but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. You're gonna love fatherhood.
