A crack-up interview with Lemmy from the Observer. Features gems such as:
“My rider is a few biscuits, a few cakes, a meat plate, a cheese plate, some cigs, some JDs. I must say, I’m not completely fixated on Jack Daniel’s — it’s just that it’s the one with the best distribution system worldwide. At one point I mainly drank Southern Comfort mixed with Special Brew. What was I thinking?”
I also love the commenter who said “You metal heads think your so hard and edgy that its risible. You equate speed with freedom and noise with rebellion. You are perpetual spotty teenagers. Heavy metal is the most conservative music on the planet.” Clearly, a world authority on metal music.
A very interesting article called More than one Paganism, for anyone interested in the diversity and perception of polytheistic religions.
Why? Why does this exist?
Sleepy Hollow Wedding shoot – the cake looks really yummy and I love the color effect on these photographs
Another stocking stuffer – Necronomicox (If you think that sounds like Cthulhu-themed sex toys, you’d be right)
Oooh, and Haute Macabre have their own Cthulhu gift guide!
No Clean Singing have been doing a Finnish Tribute Week. See Humppa til’ it hurts, Horna, Beherit, Impaled Nazarene, Sargeist – and Behexen and Insomnium, amongst other excellent posts. I recently read that in Finland, a country with a population of 5 million, over 3 million of those are metal fans. No wonder so much incredible music comes out of Finland.
Yay! New Project Hate album in February! When we visited Oslo, we went to a metal music shop, and the dude put their last album on in the shop. “What’s this?” Says CDH. “The Project Hate” says rather attractive Norwegian metal shop owner. “I LOVE it. We’ll take it.” RANMSO makes a pouty face. Turns out, he’d only just got the album in, it was his only copy, and he’d been looking forward to listening to it for weeks. We felt pretty bad, but not bad enough to not buy it.
The World’s Ten Biggest Food Fights. I love humans. We’re all so mad.
Also, Emily is stoked to announced that thanks to all you awesome folk, she’s raised enough to give a goat this christmas! Thanks to everyone who gave a little toward a worthy and metal cause.
Got some great articles lined up this week, then Steff Metal will be taking a little Christmas leisure time. I’ll be visiting my family, in the far-off land of dialup internet. So posting may be a little light over the holidays, but that’s not cuz I don’t love you. I just have better things to do than wait 17 minutes for Internet Explorer to load my hotmail account.
I’m going to miss you all, and my beautiful Mac!
