Everyone else is doing Wordless Wednesdays, instead I’d like to institute a new weekly feature here at GJCTU, Word-Salad Wednesdays. Each week I’ll be featuring a song that, no matter what its other redeeming features, was apparently lyricised by throwing a rhyming dictionary into a blender, hitting pureé, and then recording the result. Given the […]Read more "Word-Salad Wednesdays: KISS – All Hell’s Breakin’ Loose"
Did I really just hear Beth in a freaking Volkswagen commercial? What is this world coming to? Somehow is seems appropriate that it involves an amusement park (which reminds me, I’ve still gotta do full movie review on that whole KISS and Scooby Doo thing). Here’s the last time that happened. OK, gotta go put my […]Read more "What the..?"

Or at least it will be on July 21st. I am so totally getting a copy and then abusing it for your reading pleasure. I took my PANRE (Physician Assistant Re-certification Exam) today. I’ve been told that everyone walks out of the door convinced they failed, so I am taking my utter conviction that I […]Read more "Random Thoughts: So This is a Thing Now"
I’d planned to hold off on these guys for a while, but 1) it’s been a totally crap week and I need to write about something that really makes me happy and 2) the Eurovision finals are this weekend, so it only seems appropriate to go ahead and feature these guys, as that was the […]Read more "Nerd Metal Fridays: Lordi"
