[ profile] veilingofthesun and [ profile] chudames are both generous lasses.

They both gifted me....LJ user heads made of virtual chocolate.

Thanks girls!

Now a question...what the hell do I do with them?


On things totally unrelated, I am very behind in my reading for SoT and I'm on night shift.

An ad on my elgay...

I really have to get a paid account so I don't see the horror of ads like these

Bjørn, I know you're going to love this. The fact that involves dashing unicorns against rocks to explode in a glorious rainbow just makes it.

DAMN it.

This auction that I was extremely excited about ended early. The seller had the guitar listed elsewhere.

I'd made up my mind to use the Buy It Now, too. Call it an early birthday present.

No early birthday present for me.

(I'm actually really quite annoyed. I've been looking for a reasonably-priced Fat Strat with that exact pickup configuration for a while now. And goddamn it, it was reasonably priced and just plain fucking awesome...oh well. There are worse things to be concerned about in the world, I suppose...)

Procrastinating on the Metal Archives forums yesterday, I came across a comment about a Mexican "depressive BM" band called Drown in Solitude, and how the vocalist sounds like an elephant. Nay, like a herd of elephants.

Surely this is an exaggeration, I thought to myself.

No. No, it's really not...

As I listened to it, I got an image of a herd of elephants in bullet belts self harming. I laughed so hard that I almost peed myself...

...nor a devil. If such an entity did exist, he wouldn't allow His Unholy Genre to be abused in such a manner:

Behold: An industrial black/death (whatever the fuck that sounds like [no, I'm not going to the MySpace. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!]) one-man band whose lyrical themes are...Harry Potter.

Yes, that's right. A metal band about HARRY. FUCKING. POTTER.

Metal is truly dying a slow, painful death.

CLICK ON THIS LINK! DO IT!!! (It's not a screamer, I promise).

This is made of so much awesome, I don't know where to begin...


In sadder news, I think I killed the iPod.

One of the guys at work just directed me to NCBI ROFL.

Oh dear. Oh deary, deary me... this is better than the Darwin Awards and the Ig Nobel Awards combined!

Strangely enough, this has somehow boosted my faith in research. If only because a) I know that esoterica is not dead after all; and b) because I know I could do a much better job than the vast majority of publications described therein.

Though I don't think I'd ever be able to top this one.

Holy shit

As a rule, I dislike electronica. Personally, I regard it as the very antithesis of music.

However, I will admit that Richard D James is a talented bastard, and that I have never seen a video clip that approaches the scariness of this one:

It's the only track I've heard by Aphex Twin that I actually like.

And years after I first saw it, the video still gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Dear Hollywood,

You should be nuked for this.

Thanks for continuing to take the few things that were good from my childhood and ruthlessly crushing them underfoot.

No love in the slightest,

PS. George Clooney, I hope you die in a napalm shower.

I'm pre-ordering this. I haven't laughed so hard in ages

Walking to the tea room to get a cuppa, one walks past the male toilets (helpfully marked with an "XY" on them. Yes, the female toilets have "XX" on them. So very clever...). As I was just doing that, I heard a weird buzzing sound. As it's quite late and there's no one around, I was a) naturally curious and b) for some reason, worried that it was the sound of a dying appliance or something. In hindsight, a bit dumb.

I barged in and saw... one of the guys who works here (whom I do not actually know by name or position) brushing his teeth with one of those electric toothbrushes. I sort of stood there awkwardly for a bit, before sort of blurting out "oh...erm...duh...sorry..thought-it-was-....heard something...heh" and then stumbled out.

Upon reflection, it could have been a lot worse. A LOT worse.


In other news, this might be old meme, but this video is pure comedy gold. Unintentional comedy gold (it gets a bit gory at the end).

"Yeah! SEE YA!" *scornful twitch of manly head*

Gas Mask Catalogue

Because nothing says "METAL!" better than a chubby guy in a Slayer T-shirt holding up a Coke (or a Dr Pepper or whatever the fuck it is) in triumph, another chubby guy with a haircut that I sported in the early 90s holding out wallet, and a cute chick in shorts primping for the camera. Oh yeah, and the name Gas Mask Catalogue. Feel the meh-tul. Feel it. PHEAR THERE MEH-TUL. PHEAR IT!!

In their defense, I haven't actually heard the music. However, if the description's anything to go by, I'm not inclined to check it out

I've had a fairly stressful day.

So instead of writing about it, I'm going to indulge in some classic lowbrow Aussie comedy, starring Eric Bana:

So I'm listening to an mp3 rip of a band called Leather Nunn, who were a flash in the pan like so many 80s metal bands. They recorded one album, Take The Night in 1986, and then the band split up.

It's generic heavy/power metal. Not bad, but not particularly memorable either. The vocals are the weak point - yawn-worthy Halford-esque worship to say the least. The riffs aren't particularly spectacular, either.

Apparently, though, original vinyl pressings of this album are rare and expensive. Supposedly it's the most expensive and sought-after metal pressing ever.

I was curious to see just how much it sells for, and I got my answer (last pricing).



I'd understand if it was the very first album in this style or something.'s not...and this private seller wants over $US 1 grand for it???

Ah, relative worth. It's such a fucking crock. I mean, I'll spend a fair bit on an album I really want that happens to be out of print, but NOT THAT MUCH.

It's a bit tragic that I'm only hearing about The CHK-CHK-BOOM! girl just now, isn't it?

I suppose I don't really watch the news anymore. Though that's probably because what passes for news these days would make The National Enquirer look like a quality rag.

And, incidentally, this is why I hate bogans.

Correction: I hate media-savvy bogans.
