The official unabridged list of all the shows I’ve attended (that I can remember).
It’s no secret that I love Megadeth. In fact, I’m what you might call a mega-ficionado, given the fact that I own Megadeth potholders, towels, and a Dave Must-apron. However, I stumbled across a Megadeth song I didn’t know existed. It’s actually an Alice Cooper song, so I’m doubly surprised I wasn’t privvy to this song […]
Before I get to today’s pick from my 10 favorite albums, let’s recap the previous 8 albums. Remember, these are in no particular order. 10. Smashing Pumpkins / Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness 9. Jimmy Eat World / Futures 8. Michael Jackson / Dangerous 7. The Postal Service / Give Up 6. Children of […]
Thank you for the overwhelming support and response to yesterday’s announcement of the #operationpantsfit campaign. I’m hoping that not only will MY pants fit again very soon, but that I can help others to make a healthy goal a reality in the process. Since #operationpantsfit is a group effort, I’m going to create a Motivation […]
I’m taking a break from Blend Recapping (don’t worry. there’s more. if you’re sick of it, come back next week when I leave for Austin). EDIT: I wasn’t going to recap today (I have tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday for that!), but Janetha posted her Friday night recap last night and I was so excited to see […]
First of all, I have to tell you that last night’s Doomtree show was awesome! And awesomely loud. I brought ear plugs for once. Loudest show I’ve been to. And you know what kind of music I listen to … \m/ The show was SOLD OUT. Which still made for an intimate event at this […]
So my friend @MRJWAR on twitter informed me that COB has a new album out — on Monday, during my furious purchasing of music since my emusic subscription renewed and Gaga’s new album was $.99 on amazon. @MRJWAR reminded me that I like metal. So I got Children of Bodom’s new album, Relentless, Reckless Forever. […]
I am beyond excited to see this band next week when they trek through Des Moines. They’re a bit of thrash, some Iron Maiden-esque meets death metal vocals with some southern rock infusion. They’re at the Vaudeville Mews next Wednesday, March 2 at 5:30 PM Enjoy!
I’m going to a Children of Bodom concert tomorrow and I am SOOO excited. Wellll … as long as I don’t forget to pick UP the ticket. Whoops. In case you didn’t know, these guys are one of my favorite metal bands. They have fabulous guitar, driving rhythms and they are apparently HUGE fans of […]
It’s another weiner-free weeeeeeeeeekend. I shouldn’t be this excited, but my lil dog is kind of like having a misbehaving 3-year-old. If you’re reading this, that means I’m in Minnesota and Barnabus is at Steph‘s place for the weekend. Why, do you ask? Because I’m going to see SLAYER. MEGADETH. AND TESTAMENT. Yes. Almost the […]
CHILDREN OF BODOM is coming to Des MOINES! October 1 — they’re supporting Black Label Society, who, I’m cool with seeing again, but more importantly: ALEXI LAIHO is coming to Des Moines. AND it’s a small venue. Which means. I could be. Within. His. Reach. Oh man. By the way … for those of you […]
I so don’t have time to blog about this in its entirety, but for now — I’ve got to post pix at least! SOOOOO cool. I’ll share more about what this is about later, but I swapped crafts with my way cool crafty co-worker (who loves metal/punk/cool stuff) and here’s my bounty! I’ll separate it […]
I’m participating in another craft show on the 29th of this month (yes, that’s 2 in one day!). This one is completely different than anything I’ve done before and it seems to be MY kind of people! Here’s the details taken from Satanimals’ website: Once again, here comes another art show where the weird are […]
