Questionable endeavours in military technology

This is a bread to discuss military concepts, prototypes and final products apart from everyone's favorite 5th gen multirole fighter following questionable theories/doctrines with great investment put behind them only to end up as massive wastes of time, money and resources for everyone involved.

What was the RLM thinking when they not only wanted to make a strategic bomber, but make it an dive glidebomber so it needs to be twin engined because drag except we don't have any engines powerful enough so let's put two DB601s in each nacelle sharing a single propeller through an autistically complicated gearbox while negating any potential advantages regarding engine redundancy on top of creating considerable difficulties in engine cooling.

Is 5E dying

>Be me NEET for most of my life

>Bought D&D 5E books and figurines with my first paycheck

>Found roleplaying groups at my community college

>No one wants to play 5E

>Everyone wants to play 3.5, pathfinder and ironclaw

Why can’t I find a 5E group? Is 5E dying or something? Does it have a bad reputation like 4E?

Futuristic/Space/Sci- fi

Let's dedicate a thread towards firearms that fit this kind of look.

What makes a firearm look "futuristic" to you?

"But what are you going to do against tanks?"

Great question! Let's discuss various ways that you, John Q. Citizen, can take on vehicles.

Since modern vehicles are particularly defended from underneath against IED's, would it be easier to drop some thermite on top and let it burn through? How easy would it be to run up to a tank if the quarters were close enough? Also, do czech hedgehogs work against modern vehicles, or have they been designed to shove them out of the way?

*Concern grows*

NY police shut down entire street because someone thought they saw a shotgun inside someone's home

Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A person of interest is in police custody after Rochester Police were called about a reported firearm in a home Monday morning.

The initial call came in shortly before 7 a.m. about a neighbor who claimed to have seen a shotgun in a home on Farmington Road.

Police shut down several roads in the area, but all roads have been re-opened.

Officers are searching but have not found any firearms yet. A crisis negotiation team and SWAT team were brought to the scene as a precaution.

There are no charges for the homeowner at this point; police said he was cooperative with them. No one was injured.

What are some good things to come out of bad adaptations of /co/ material?

UNDERTAKER STORYTIME

Comic follows John Crow, a bastard undertaker with dark past and mean sense of humor, trying to save up enough to open a proper funeral parlor. He is mainly concerned with cash and keeping himself and his pet vulture safe. However, occasionally Crow's curiosity, sense of duty, and desire to make up for his past mistakes get him in trouble.

There are two story arcs, each two volumes long. First story follows Crow on a contract to bury aging and bitter gold mine mogul in his very first mine.

I will story time one volume a day. Book is on mega and I will upload each volume to vola as I story time it.

DC COMICS UNDERGOING MASSIVE RESTRUCTURING. DILDO MIGHT FINALLY LOSE HIS JOB.

https://archive.fo/ei5OU

>Bleeding Cool is getting very strong reports that there is major DC Comics restructuring being announced internally right this minute.

>In the last year, DC has seen major changes, with DC President Diane Nelson stepping down, DC CCO Geoff Johns stepping down, Jim Lee sharing his Publisher role with that of CCO, and Pamela Lifford being made the new President of DC Comics.

>We have heard high-level gossip from one side that Dan DiDio is no longer Publisher. However, when other enquiries to other sources have been made, I have been told that no, DiDio is still sharing the DC Comics Publisher role with Jim Lee. And, to be fair, he has survived many a rumour of his departure. And has outlasted them all.

Lord, I'm not a praying man, but please let Dan Dildo finally get shit-canned.

General for all things FoW.

I'm getting a bit tired of Magic, so I'm looking around for new card games. FoW seems to be pretty interesting, but they also seem to have stumbled a bit. There's a weekly tournament in my local area, so there should be at least a few people to play with.

Are the new starter decks a good starting-off point? Are there similar archetypes to magic? What does the meta look like and is there room for rogue decks to shine?

Wreck it Ralph 3: Untitled Disney Princess Space Adventure

http://archive.is/por3h

http://archive.is/5ImDJ

>Directors Rich Moore and Phil Johnston said that a Ralph Breaks the Internet spin-off film focusing on the Disney Princesses could be made depending on the audience's response and "if there's a good story to be told".[119] Also, John C. Reilly says that he has an idea if a third film was to be made, which would see Ralph and Vanellope "beaming themselves right out into space".

They might actually fucking do this… Please tell me that piece of shit sequel flopped? Make the suffering stop.

Becky Prim

Eh, I'd have taken this over the latest Zombie Simpsons, Stephen Soyniverse or Thundercats Soy.

We need to establish a protocol for red-flaggings.

So what's the probable timeline of getting red-flagged? And, if you survive the initial encounter without having lost your guns, what's your plan after that? Here's what I'm looking at:

Assuming I have an idea it's coming because I made some bullshit joke at Christmas dinner earlier that day and somebody's fucking girlfriend got butthurt

>one cruiser pulls up to the driveway

>two cops get out

>I ask them through the door what they want, they tell me, I ask for a warrant, and they don't have one

>I inform them that I won't comply or consent to searches

At this point, what's cop SOP and what's our best response? I'm guessing they would try to bust in unless they know I'm armed and ready. If they know, I'm guessing they'd retreat to the car and call for backup, right? If they don't know, should I inform them before they try, or let them try and open fire without any further warning?

From here, whether or not we engage in a firefight, I can expect heavy backup to arrive shortly. What then?

I'm 8 minutes away from cops unless there's one already in the area. Do I get the hell out and run Dorner-style or hunker down for Ruby Ridge 2.0?

40K general nº21:Merry Sanguinala to all!

Happy Sanguinala to everybody, dear neckbeards. Or at least, it will be soon! In the name of the Adeptus Terra, I say that lets use this moment to be friendly between brothers, and lets just be comfy.

And to remember the great sacrifice that the great Sanguinius did in its famous last stand against the Arch-traitor, and so the great effort that their sons, the Blood Angels, do to prevent "Non-autorished accidents". So its important to make the population conscious of the grave problem that its the Red Thirts, and its consequences. And no, dear citizen, the Blood Angels doesnt have a "Black Rage" or worse thing, that Chaos propaganda, or just bad rumors by dumb people scared of them. To think otherwise is heresy, and it punishment is high!

Luckily, A new animated series starring the Blood Angels is being made now, so lets see if with this there will be more animated series & movies (That are good, and arent Ultramarine-Tier)

Lets start this new general thread!

3 Reasons Why You Can't Hit Shit with Your AK...

This dude reliably hits:

- White colored targets on white backgroun

- Torso sized, not full body

- With iron sights

- On an AK pattern

- Firing 7.62x39mm

- To 425 yards!

What the fuck is your excuse!!!?

Imagine what's possible with visible targets, optics, 5.45mm, on one of the newer AKs!

>Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

ANIMATED SHORT FILM

>Animal Behavior

Admittedly, there’s not much to discuss about the Oscars anymore, at least as far as /co/ content is concerned. Animated Feature Film is gonna be Incredibles or Ralph and Animated Short Film is gonna be Bao. The only tossup worth mentioning this year is that Black Panther was nominated for Best Picture (in one of the most pozzed Best Picture lineups I’ve ever seen).

"Missing" Army Manual

I was looking through the US Army Publishing Directorate site for cool spook manuals that I hadn't heard of, and I found pic related. The interesting thing about this one, TM 31-210-2, is that as far as I can tell, there are no online versions of it. This is in stark contrast to the other two "Unconventional Warfare Devices and Techniques" publications, which are both widely available as physical and digital copies (.pdfs related)

The only library I could find that had this "missing" publication is the Australian War Memorial Library in Canberra

https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/LIB100034312

Have any streloks heard of this book? Why is it seemingly so unpopular compared to other similar Army manuals?

Things You Came Across That You Don't Understand

Came across this image randomly. I could try looking deeper into it myself, but I figured /co/ wouldn't mind filling me in on this one.

The mayor did nothing wrong. Gumball and his family have caused more destruction to the town than anyone else and deserve a fate worse than being thrown into a gated community.

The joys of classic cars

Took my 89 golf for it's annual* MOT test this morning, it passed with only one advisory note about a minor oil leak which I was already aware of. Imaginemysurprise.jpg

Half an hour later, turned the key… nothing. The ignition barrel is kerfucked.

A bit of wire, some sparks and smoke later, and I managed to start it up and make it home. Somehow, replacement parts are still available, despite the VW parts guy telling me they're not.

Tomorrow i'll be figuring out how to fit the new one…

Any other anons have a classic car as their daily driver, and how much of a pain in the colon is it?

*14 months, because I am absent-minded. Got away with it, again.

P.S., not my golf in pic, I don't have any… mine's a 1.6CL 4+E with electric, er, nothing, faded paint and some rough bits. Yes, it's a rat, but hasn't been modded (molested) by a teenager.

Sup /k/: Hypothetical scenario in which you are a soon to EAS Infantryman who was never able to enter Special Operations due to being colorblind. Lets say you wanted to join a securty firm to earn a bigger pay check instead of being paid basically minimum wage to mop the grass in the rain.

/mu/ makes a physical copy

Alright faggots, as promised, I decided to make actual CDs for an Autistic Rage Festival album, and since we couldn't really decide which one should it be, I decided it should be no other than the debut.

>How do I get one?

You send me an email to yungdaggerdick@nigge.rs and we talk about it.

>How much it costs?

The shipping cost is all you need to pay for, which is up to you how much you want to pay:

<If you want registered mail, it will cost 2020 HUF to European countries (not only EU members) and 2175 HUF to the rest of the world.

<If you say fuck it gimme your cheapest, that will be 835 HUF ($2.96) to Europe and 935 HUF ($3.32) to the rest of the world.

The cheapest option means the it won't be registered, I can't track it down and if this shit gets lost on the way to you it will be fucking lost and the post office wont refund. It also arrives like weeks later.

The package obviously ships from Hungary, it contains a gluten free fragile-ass jewel case and 2 CDs I will draw dicks on. I will also draw other shit on it if you ask nicely.

You can listen to the masterpiece here:

Shadowrun

Let's talk Shadowrun. Do you have any stories to tell? Have you tried recreating Lord of the Rings using it? Have you considered porting campaigns from vidya to tabletop?

Campaign Creation Help

I'm trying to put together a campaign in Star Wars Saga Edition. I've got the general outlines in place, but I'm having trouble getting into some specifics, namely encounter creation. Setting is:

>19-20 ABY, just after Bastion Accords are signed

>relative peace in galaxy

>players are crew members aboard a smuggling vessel

>ship specialized in running New Republic contraband to Empire, and vice versa

>now that war is over no need to smuggle goods, regular trade happens

>regular trade margins are too low, captain looking for other employment

I'm going to start them off with a pre-made module to give me some breathing room, after that it's going to be more or less a sandbox, with the players choosing what direction the campaign will take. My issue is with coming up with decent encounters for them--I'm used to fantasy RPGs, and the disconnect of space travel->decide to land->encounter happens makes the creation process for space somewhat different, and I'm having trouble visualizing proper ways to get this going.

Writing aliens

How do you write believable aliens /tg/? I can’t break the mold of modeling them off human cultures with slightly different traits. I want to create something truly alien but not retarded and unrelateable for my players.

Mostly playing Traveler but also Star Trek and 40k and I’m getting sick of stock aliens

QTDDTOT: Why-Isn't-There-Already-One Edition

Doing my plugs and wires soon. I've got pre-gapped Bosch Iridium spark plugs, and the gap on the box is the correct gap for my engine. I'd like to just put them in as-is without messing with the gap, since the electrode is so easy to damage, and because I'm pretty sure I've screwed up a couple iridium plugs before by gapping them. The thing is, 90% of "pre-gapped" plugs I've checked in the past were set at the wrong gap (and were not even consistent in how far off they were).

So which is riskier? Messing with the gap to make sure it's right, or leaving them alone and potentially using the wrong gap?

Jerome M. Hauer, the Director of Homeland Security for the State of New York, made headlines in 2013 by using a 9mm Glock pistol as a laser pointer while giving a presentation to a foreign delegation. This incident took place at a highly secure state emergency operations center under State Police headquarters, to which Hauer had brought his gun in violation of state law. The foreign visitors (three emergency managers from Sweden) became rather alarmed when, in the course of his presentation, Hauer swept the gun's laser sight across their heads. Hauer later justified his action by saying that the gun wasn't loaded and he didn't see any other laser pointers nearby, but admitted it wasn't the smartest thing to do.

YOU BROKE MY GRILL?

What are you waiting for? Finish Your Comic

Didnt see anything in catalog. Let's have a comic creator resource thread. Writers, artist, inker, letterer, colorist, or any questions pertaining to creating and publishing your work.

Publishers

Marvel - https://www.marvel.com/help/category/17/topic/30 - does not accept portfolios anymore. You need to know someone to get hired now.

DC - https://www.dccomicstalentworkshop.com/artists-workshop/how-to-apply/ - they have a workshop set of courses every year (or have been lately) that you can submit work and portfolios towards admission. This can lead to work and showcases, like the New Talent Showcase 2018 issue ( https://www.dccomics.com/comics/new-talent-showcase-2016/new-talent-showcase-2018-1 ).

Image Comics - https://imagecomics.com/submissions - Accepts Artists: We accept inking, pencilling, lettering, or coloring samples. Writers: We accept proposals only. Clique group. Without a name, youll find trouble getting support from Image. Knowing someone is best way to get there and having previous work or status (novels, film, etc). Not the 'indy haven' it used to be.

https://jasonthibault.com/definitive-list-comic-publisher-submission-guidelines/ - this is a longer list of publisher and guidelines updated for 2018 standards.

Crowd funding is a great way to get funds, but also entirely name based and getting info out there. Need twitter and other media. Youtube channel is very good if artist for basic livestream drawing sessions or critiques, helping improve art of followers, etc. Jim Lee has a good channel for this. Ethan van Sciver used to do insider talks on his work with Marvel (New X-Men with Morrison, his Johns Rebirth stuff) and how to draw various characters. Mostly shittalks SJWs now though. Archives good source for building audience though. Can use the money in conjunction with some smaller publishers too.

I'll post some resources for general comic creation in follow up posts.

590M(agazine) Shockwave - Best Modern Shotgun Ever?

> Reliability of a pump

> 20 round magazine available

> That's right, 20 slugs, fast as you can pump 'em, and more and more, as fast as you can change mags

> SBR length without it being an SBR

< lose tactical reloads (like tossing out a birdshot shell & slipping in a slug)

< can't use short shells

< if you want to use it prone, you'll have to shoot right-handed, and you'll probably need 2 mods (add a top grip to the slide, and add some kind of sight to the right side & a 45 degre angle (keep that slim, so it doesn't impair tactical right-hand turns around corners))

< retarded bonus: a tube for a survival kit, papers, cigarettes, dragon dildos, or, imagine it, a few extra rounds - that will require manual loading.

I think perfection is here at last. Bonus, the barrels are easy to change, so if you need a longer barrel, say for hunting, it's trivial.

Important mod:

> Folding "brace" (stock) & pistol grip

< brace & grip are overpriced right now (they're for the original shockwave, but obviously work on the new one)

Don't forget: Buy the 20 round mags!

Also, a lot of people are porting the barrel. Not a necessity.

Defeating helicopters with available tech.

As things heat up, helicopters will be a problem. As they can provide very dangerous information to the enemy and be a shooting platform. Consider yourself to have no air support (Anything bigger than your off the shelf drone) and only things you can buy and an average man with some training can make to defeat this helicopter threat.

Not gearboxes, because physical disability should not necessarily be an obstacle to driving. Pointless to anyone with the normal amount of functional limbs though…

And rain-sensing wipers are good. If they could also automatically turn off the foglights they'd be great. *hits blunt* if wipers on every car could turn off the foglights automatically, that would be awesome.

Automatic headlights? Can you not see how dark it is, or can you not see?

f you need assistance that much, why not just get the bus?

Shit like 'lane assist' or 'self parking' is only necessary if you have fuck all, or close to fuck all hand - eye coordination, spacial awareness and overall ability, in which case you should be on the variety club minibus sharing window spit.

We're becoming too reliant on technology imo, and that will make us lazy and inattentive. When facing oncoming vehicle on a 60mph country road, I want that driver to be as awake and aware and in control as I am.

So we don't have multiple threads made /v/irgins asking what guns to put in their indie game or multiple threads about the HECU Marines from Half-Life let's have a cyclical thread for contained vidya discussion.

On this day, Steamboat Willie was created, and Mickey Mouse made his official debut Despite him technically appearing in Plane Crazy a few months earlier, but that was a test screening so I guess that doesn't count.

In any case, he's turning 90 today. Say something nice to him and his cartoons.

NETWORKING GENERAL

So, in the prepping general thread a new Zeemaps was created just for /8/k/pol/ (old one was cluttered as fuck). Tag yourselves with a codename and a secure email, get to networking.

Other options include joining state constitutional militias (PA State Militia is unironic and legit, look into yours or start your own).

Avoid any group that advocates 'first strike' or violence as it is likely a honeypot.

Also /meadhall/ isn't dead, yet. Though they are more likely /pol/ than /k/.

Nuggetfests are good to get to know your fellow /k/ommandos.

Hello /k/,

I'm a visitor from /tg/ who having gun and game related problem, I thought you could help (or at the very least, argue about a gun related question).

At what point does ammunition become sufficiently huge that one shot kills/the exit channel is so big that recovery is not a practical option. I keep reading about people surviving multiple gutshots (often hilariously large amounts over 20) from smaller calibers and I watch some /k/ related youtube but I have to admit that its mostly over my head. So Presuming Center of Mass (Gutshots) that don't immediately paralyze (so leave the spine out of it ) how big does the bullet have to be to put someone down.

The idea is to help me make my tacticool operators tabletop that much more accurate/Streloklike.

Alternatively if you want to tell me the most essential traits of an operator that would also be of use. Thanks again, teegee out.

As retarded as the DFNS may be I can't really see them side with the US any longer if Erdogan goes through with an invasion of the Syrian Kurd "mainland".

How does /k/ expect this shitshow to end?

Personally I expect the YPG/SDF owned territory to descend into its own civil war if they don't side with Assad at some point in the near future, the Arabs there only remain docile through US financial injections and would be more than willing to change sides once those dry up.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

I've been watching old network promos because I hate myself and want to indulge myself in a nostalgia-induced depression, but now I want to discuss the cartoons that aired around them.

What killed off Saturday morning cartoons? Was it the larger availability of viewable timeslots on cable networks such as Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network to watch cartoons vs the limited timeslots broadcast networks offered? Were the broadcast networks just not getting enough quality shows as old ones ended? Or did they just get canned because shows aimed at older audiences were more profitable on broadcast even without a change in viewership? Which block did you watch the most? What was the one cartoon you couldn't miss when it was on?

I remember watching Kids' WB until all the shows I remember anyone talking about were all moved to Cartoon Network around 2006 or so. I don't even remember what was left on Kids' WB after that. In hindsight, it's not too surprising that 4kids took over the block in 2008.

Complete Firearm Blueprints

There is a fuck ton of firearms blueprints on the net, but there seems to be few complete blueprints. So lets start a thread for Anons to post complete blueprints in.

Lets start with the Browning 1919A4 Machine gun.

Please note that there are 26 sets of blueprints for this weapon, not including the 11 different sets of blueprints for the M2 .30 cal tripod.

This will take a while to upload due to the anti-flooding feature.

Any good superhero ones? Only ones I know of are the only Marvel modules that expected you to play as existing heroes (I've got no idea why someone published an RPG so repulsed by the idea of using custom characters) and Emerald City Knights.

Non-Combat Games and Campaigns

I sometimes find myself wanting to run a completely non-combat game. Not just less combat, or a session that's more roleplay heavy, but no murderhoboing at all, for an entire campaign. It seems like a fun idea at first, but so few systems support this kind of play (not even counting awful hipster """𝓪𝓻𝓽""" games), and so few players would even be interested in playing something that wasn't built from skinner box kill-and-reward game design.

Let's discuss non-combat games: How to run them, how to make them engaging, how to get people on board and invested in them, and how to overcome the hurdles of removing instant gratification from the roleplaying experience.

Go Thread

Since we've been so impolitely driven out of the Chess Thread. Here is a new thread for Go.

I started playing about 2 years ago, but bob in and out of Go frenzies and burnout breaks that last months. As such I'm only about 21-18 kyu. I have a physical board but no one to play with, so I normally play on OGS. How long have you guys been playing? Where do you play normally? Post boards and books! I might occasionally post Go puzzles too, just to spite the chessfags who closed their borders to us.

Military Strategy

What are your reccomendations for military strategy board games? I'm not talking about figurine based games, I mean proper games that use tokens and are actually deep and don't require me to spend 50 bucks on a starter set. The only one I know of is Stratego and Chess. Can't consider Risk a strategy game because winning because you got a good roll isn't strategy.

The Bug Out Bag

So let's say hypothetically I have myself stuck in a major city in a blue state for a little while with no vehicle for familial reasons beyond my immediate control, and I want to construct a bugout bag in case there is a SHTF scenerio Or I just get disgusted by city life and want to walk away.

I understand the basics of emergency prep but I am looking for the ideal loadout for an urban kit tooled for escaping a city on foot and I know you guys would have some good ideas. I am especially interested in food/water suggestions, as lugging around a rucksack of beans and plastic jew bottles of water do not strike me as ideal when trying to quickly gtfo one of these hellholes.

tl;dr - Post bugout bag loadouts

Homeowner removes kebab wholesale

https://www.theepochtimes.com/texas-homeowner-shoots-5-men-during-home-invasion-police_2773876.html

Five men tried breaking into a house in Texas just before 1 a.m. on Jan. 20, but were shot by the homeowner.

Three of the men were shot dead, with one of the deceased being left in front of the house.

One wounded man fled on foot while the other three left in a vehicle. The car crashed into a pole and a man was later found dead inside. Another occupant fled on foot after the crash and later died.

The two suspects who survived were taken to a hospital.

A neighbor told KPRC that a shootout happened after two men with large guns entered the house and the others pulled up and prepared to go inside.

Police officers described several dozen shell casings in and around the house as they began their investigation.

Another neighbor told KHOU that he was on his porch with his baby when he saw the two men show up with large rifles. The neighbor went inside his house to take cover.

He said that the homeowner is known in the neighborhood as “Flaco.”

A group of women who were crying showed up near the house where the shooting happened and said they are related to the men who were shot. They declined to provide further details.

Officials told KTRK that the homeowner shot the men in self-defense using a fully-loaded AK-47, an assault rifle.

The 20-year-old homeowner said that the men, wearing ski masks, approached his house and busted inside, demanding cash, forcing him to defend himself.

A witness said that he saw two men in front of the home lying on the ground. “I heard around five or six gunshots. I’m pretty sure there were more before that,” he said.

Supra Mk5

So it finally came out after 15 years of anticipation; the A90 Supra. As the dust on its unveiling begins to settle, what is /o/'s honest opinion about it?

Personally I'm not as critical about it as most seem to be, other than the fact it does seem a little underscale and underpowered. There is still the possibility they give us a 450 BHP RZ version if it stays in production that long, but I would have preferred something that stayed more true to the FT-1 if I'm being honest.

Here's the official trailer. I honestly forgot this shit was coming out and there's barely any buzz about this anywhere. Not that I blame people, The Death of Superman was such a boring pile of crap that I doubt anyone is excited to see this.

The Reasons behind the US Army adoption of the 6.8 cartridge

The US Army has been mulling new rifles and ammunition since the 1980's. Only recently have those projects been approved with a projected date of adoption sometime in 2022.

More than a rifle: How a new 6.8mm round, advanced optics … - Military Times

https://www.militarytimes.com › news

The Army says that this new round is to counter russian body armor advances. While this may be a factor I think its real reason lies in the wargaming and "red team secenarios" focused on an American Civil War.

Think about it. The American Civil war will be a conflict of long range suprise engagements conducted by American Rebels using a snipe and scoot arrangement that allows them to inflict the most casualties and suffer the least. The counter strategy is to return fire by the engaged party before the rebels move. Against a Rebel AR10 or .270 rifle the M4 is ineffective against cover at 500 yrds and much less accurate in the hands of the average American soldier.

>Why not drone them strelok?

A drone cannot be on station fast enough to engage before the rebels move. Nor will rebels engage if a drone is in the area.

>Artillery and airstrikes don't exist in your fantasy strelok?

Neither are surgical enough (or cost effective) to prevent civilian casualties on American soil. Only proving to drive more people to the rebel cause than they casualties inflicted on the rebels.

In closing the 6.8 cartridge and new rifles being adopted with it are a response to the threat posed by the American Rifleman to soldiers and rearline troops.

Good shit you've heard recently

What have you heard as of late that really blew you away?

I've been trying to go through anything Mike Patton's been involved in and started with Mr. Bungle and wow, I really don't even know how to describe that band. I love the constant genre-cycling and mostly immature, surreal lyrics on the self-titled debut. Disco volante is kind of hard to listen to at times and the mixing/mastering is a little weird but I still admire the amount of experimentation on that one and it's a solid album overall. California is great and I love the concept they went for on it, and even though it's the most accessible of all three albums, that's by no means a downside since the quality doesn't suffer on it whatsoever.

I found Daughters on the front page of Bandcamp in an article about their newest album while looking for something else and at first, I wasn't too impressed, but after re-listening to their last three releases (couldn't do anything before Hell Songs, as I'm not a grindcore fan unless it's parody or purposely funny like Anal Cunt or Kirk Fogg's African Adventure), my opinion has really changed. Hell Songs is pretty decent, although the production leaves a bit to be desired. The 2010 self-titled release is fantastic and I love the lyrical style, especially on "The Hit," which I've listened to more times than I care to admit in the relatively short time since I first heard it. You Won't Get What You Want is one of the darkest, most Poe-like albums I've ever heard and I'd go so far as to even call it scary, yet nothing on it comes off as edgy or whiny and it's more than solid math/noise rock.
