I mean guys wrestling in giant monster suits as they destroy cardboard cites! How could this be not be awesome in every conceivable way? Called Kaiju Big Battel, it’s apparently been around for for years and now has a weekly home on the new The Monster Channel. […]Read more "This is a thing!!!"
Jeez, spoiled for choice with these guys, their entire lyrical output appears to have been produced by an epileptic twelve-year-old with Tourette’s. The music may have been cool but the lyrics were about as sensible as the concept of Chinese democracy. I really hope these were written under the influence of the shitty namesake wine, […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesday: Guns ‘n Roses – Night Train"
Just some things I’ve been musing upon that don’t deserve whole blogs to themselves. Played The Adventures of Tom Stranger, Interdimentional Insurance Agent for the nerdlings (now 11 on Tuesday and 14, respectively) and their enjoyment confirmed that I do indeed have a teen boy trapped in my head, driving the humor train. Not sure […]Read more "Random Thoughts: Father’s Day Edition"
The single most overplayed song of the summer of 1988 more than earns a place in our hall of shame. If anybody ever figures out what a radar phone is, I’m pretty sure I need one.

I […]Read more "Something “Strange” for Your Tuesday"

“Warp into Monster Disco Hell!” Boy, oh boy, oh boy. This one’s a hot mess. I’d use the excuse that the band is Finnish and not singing in their native tongue, except I’m pretty sure that Tomi Putaansuu’s (OK, brief interruption. Because I am just proud as hell that I spelled that right, in the […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesday – Lordi: Get Heavy"
So I’ve got major ankle surgery coming up at the end of June and will be in a cast for three months post-op, so I’ve been spending a lot of my free time working on long-procrastinated household projects (as opposed to long-procrastinated blog posts*) that have got to get done before I’m laid up or […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesdays – Dio: Holy Diver"
