Last week of our countdown, so here’s some more newish stuff from Lordi, my favorite monsters. Although why you’d invite these guys to a wedding, I will never know. Introduction to the Monster, Monster II series here.Read more "Monster, Monster II – I Dug a Hole in the Yard for You"
C’mon, y’all know I love me some Lordi (and some KISS) so there was no way none of their newer stuff was making the list. This one is interesting as it was written by the Starchild himself, Paul Stanley, and Afro-punk pioneer Jean Beauvoir (of Plasmatics fame) way back in the 80s, and had things […]Read more "Monster, Monster II – Saturday Morning Cartoon Edition"
Why were the 80s all about the Post-Apocalypse anyway? Even the music videos all took place After The End.Read more "Music (videos) for the Post-Apocalypse"
“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"
And here’s the most important thing to remember as we move into Halloween itself. The creepy stuff is fun, it’s great to have a thrill or two, but ultimately evil loses out. I know, I read ahead the the end of the Book. So on that note: HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Introduction to the Monster, Monster series […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Devil is a Loser"
Today we learn that half a set of obstetrical forceps is an ineffective weapon when wielded against a half-troll, half-demon from Lapland. So is this the morgue of the hospital from Dark Floors? Because that would actually make a lot of sense. More than the end of that movie did, anyway. Introduction to the Monster, […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Would You Love a Monsterman?"
As I may have mentioned before, this video is what got me firmly and permanently hooked on Lordi (c’mon, zombie cheerleaders, what’s not to love!). An obsession that I am totally unashamed to have instilled in the nerdlings as well. The fact that this is the song with which they won Eurovision makes it even […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Hard Rock Hallelujah"
In honor of the coming of my second favorite secular celebration of a religious holiday, (sorry, Santa Claus will always beat out the Great Pumpkin in my book) the next 31 days will be a celebration of all things cheesy and monster-related in the music universe. Because there is some great stuff out there. Between […]Read more "Monster, Monster – A Halloween Celebration!"
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"
