Maiden Cartoons. Which is exactly what it sounds like, at least if you, like me, prefer heavy riffs to Disney Princesses. Seriously though, these are clearly a labor of love and devotion for the animator. There are far too many to share, but here’s a little taste. If you have a whole afternoon (or two) […]Read more "One For the “Stuff I Didn’t Know About But Needed To” File"
I’m just gonna leave this right here. Actual lyrics (not that it helps) I am he as you are he as you are me And we are all together See how they run like pigs from a gun See how they fly I’m crying Sitting on a cornflake Waiting for the van to come Corporation […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesdays – The Beatles: I am the Walrus"
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"

Nope, not a joke (although technically aimed at the Wiggles set), and how the hell the guitarist knocks out the first song’s absolutely scathing guitar solo in that getup, I have no idea (and I once spent a whole evening at Amen’s […]Read more "Nerd Metal Fridays: Hevisaurus"
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"
Saving the best stuff for near the end and this is one of my absolute favorites. Dee Snyder and Alice Cooper, plus a cameo by zombie makeup king and sometimes actor Tom Savini (who also did all the makeup effects for the video). In addition to Alice, other (off-screen) musical guests on the song included […]Read more "Monster, Monster – Be Chrool to Your Scuel"
