Interview w/

Mikey Heppner from Priestess will be up soon...
We discuss the new album, influences and favourite Sabbath album!

free spending rubes-

suckers, hicks, yokels, johns, fish, marks, bums, losers, fools who buy diamonds from gypsies, and anybody over the age of nine in this country who believe in his heart that all cops are honest & would never lie in a courtroom.

today, I read some Hunter S. It's been awhile. Oh, how he makes me laugh. Hey Rube!

The Gonzo way! 7 lessons Hunter S. Thompson has taught anybody that has given him the chance to. :

1. Learning--That's what it's all about!
2. It's wrong when it stops being fun.
I take that one to heart, practise it everyday.
3. Politics is the art of controlling your environment.
4. 'We' is the most important word in politics.
5. Truth is easier!
6. Buy the ticket, take the ride.
7. Never apologize, never explain
Some of my favourite albums!
Robin Trower- Bridge of Sighs

I thank my Dad for gettin' me into this amazing music. I'm not a big 'Opeth' fan but they cover the titled track in their 2008 album as a bonus track. I've seen video footage of Down opening up with "bridge of sighs" into there first song. "Too Rolling Stoned" could be anybody with starry eyes theme song. My pops said they used to call Trower the "White Jimmy Hendrix"..I believe it. Props to James Dewar's haunting vocals and amazing bass playing. Trower Power!

Saint Vitus- Born too Late


Saint Vitus, slows down metal in a way that nobody else can. Born Too Late feels like a blink of an eye and eternity at the same time. This album has been the background to lonely nights or thirsty mornings. This album hurts to listen to. Wino's first album w/ Vitus. The album itself is timeless, issues and feelings that human's relate too from the beginning of time til present day. Absolutely the most humble and real album . The recording is not too produced which I appreciate, raw. DOOM OR BE DOOMED!!

Sleep's Holy Moutain
Ah, favourite Sleep album ever! Dragonaut reminds me of a jack in the box just turning the crank, turnign the crank then POP! surprises me every god damn time. The whole album is just so clever. Al's vocal's booming at just the right moment. It deserves a place in my absolute favourite albums, I remember when I first got my hands on it was like Christmas day. Aquarian is another of my favourites on the album, droned out and smoke filled. I BELIVE THE SIGNS OF THE REPTILE MASTER!
Pantera- Far Beyond Driven
I just get it. I just love it. FBD is my favourite Pantera album, easily. One of the most memorable metal songs ever written (I'm Broken) is on it with or without that being said...Far Beyond Driven rips! Find it to be the grooviest Pantera album. For some reason I find Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills to be one of the sexiest songs around. I would hate to leave out that they do cover Black Sabbath's Planet Caravan...which is a combo that would make any girl blush. This is truly when Pantera were BECOMING...GOD SIZE!
EYEHATEGOD- Take as needed for pain
If I'm in a situation with no music I can close my eyes and listen to this album front to back. EHG is the ultimate jam band with influences like Black Sabbath, whiskey, prostitutes,dark alleys and oblivion. Who gave her the roses is one of my favourite songs ever and would make love to it nightly if it wasn't just about two minutes long. KILL YOUR BOSS!

Totally forgot about...

God damn "Witchcraft"...

Amazing band, beautiful music and I'm usually not one to pay attention to lyrics but it hits me really hard.

The Alchemist is one of my favourite albums ever.
If you want to hear something light and heavy in all the right places, think Witchcraft!

Recent entry

The art of procrastination: Getting it done is the final outcome but it's the rush and the excitement that makes it taste so much sweeter (or saltier if you're not into sweets). I like procrastinating more than I like accomplishing. It's the only wild thing I do. This pint of beer is "too full" I think, that will change like most things do. Ah, looking forward to my album review of the year I already sort of know how it will pan out...Shrinebuilder or Converge will probably win because they are as badass as, um, well...Bill Shatner going on a fishing trip! Ha!
I had a weird last night I saw slayer at the top floor of a building, very enjoyable but I had this weird fire-hazzardly feeling the whole time. I don't take anyone seriously except myself and Neil Fallon.
Everybody is so damn cool here. Great hair cuts!
Useless flirting! Get to the point. Fucking it's called..ick, love, drives me crazy...being alone is way more fun.
What do I want to do with my life?
Maybe I'll work at a hotel, yes...
Maybe I'll start a Saint Vitus cover band.
Maybe I'll eat a bunch of acid and drift...
or maybe I'll get married, have kids and then have grandkids...don't forget about my "rewarding career".
Ah talking about the "possibilities". The truth of the future is that the "possibilities" usually turn into made up glory stories spoken to strangers after seven beers later in a dark, grimey bar.
Just got a pint "On me" says buddy...What a peach knows the way to a womans heart.

Baroness-Blue Album

Love it, love it, love it, love it!

We met a couple of the dudes, walkin' down the street after they played a wicked set opening for my favourite Clutch in July...I usually don't care much for pictures like this but, hey a little nostalgia never hurt anybody (or has it?)


Another Journal Entry- October-ish

Oh, how reading a book from yesteryear compells me not only to write but document what is going on around me. Time slips away so quickly. I don't mind because we are always going through change whether we like it or not. I'm sitting at a silly coffee shop called Starbucks right now where the sizes range from "vente" to "grande" and what not, I asked for a large and ended up with way to much coffee that will either keep me up until dawn or give me a splitting headache until dawn. On the wall is a ridiculous painting of a golden retriever with a red backdrop. I wonder if this dog belonged to someone or if maybe it was just a fictional pet someone longed for all their life. Sitting around are just people like myself; who decided to spend the evening reading or writing or maybe just staring at the pages thinking about a different time or futuristic plans. Nobody here is on a date, maybe waiting for a date or thinking about a date. Lots of my days get filled with sleep which is great and safe...but the danger and excitement of being alone sure tops it.
I think a girl just walked in who is waiting to meet a date, I think she met him online because she keeps looking around for someone she isn't quite sure looks like. I can't help but want to wait around to see how it goes. The two girls who I overheard talking about flip flops are gone for they ran out of things to talk about. I hope she isnt getting stood up, it would ruin her taste in coffee and men as well. I wonder how long someone took deciding on the lighting in here.
