And yet the damned thing works. [Sorry folks, I’ve been knee deep in Polish studies since February, this is just me coming up for air for a second. I tend to overdo whatever has caught my interest at the moment and I am probably going to remain a bit buried until December or so.]Read more "Weirdest Thing I’ve Heard Today"
Saw this and thought it was just weird enough to share. Kiss’s 1970’s proto-metal ode to mild pedophilia (well, one of them, but at least Christine Sixteen is less disturbing than Domino, given that the age difference was a lot less in the mid 70s than the mid 90s) as an acoustic set by a […]Read more "Odd Choice for an Acoustic Set"
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.

And also Halloween-worthy. Calico Cooper really looks like her daddy, especially that profile. And it turns out she sings as well as she dances (not that she dances here, but I saw her performing onstage as her father’s lead dancer a number of years ago here in Richmond. Check it out!Read more "And Another Worthy Cover"
except perhaps that Halloween is coming and I opted out of doing another countdown this year, Powerwolf’s cover of “A Touch of Evil” is really pretty damned good. Nothing really can beat Rob Halford of course, but I did enjoy this when I ran across it this week. And the organ is a fabulous touch. […]Read more "Apropos of Nothing"
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"
