It's easy to like things for the wrong reasons. For example, why does the casual NASCAR fan watch?
Why do you like your girlfriend?
HER NICE ASS.
Well, I guess that's not necessarily a bad thing...you get my point. Anyway, a lot of people like hockey because of the fighting. It's definitely my favorite part of the game at least. So what's better in hockey than fighting? How about unrestrained, viscious kids fighting to the death in a youth hockey game.
Seriously. I searched through the dust storms of Mars, the fiery surface of Venus, and even fought off the incredible ice volcanos of Saturn's largest moon, Titan; no product was able to match the brutality and youth of this 11-year-old juggernaut.
The heaviest matter in the universe is the breakdown in this jam.
We live in an advanced age where technology is flourishing and even the secrets of the universe are within reach. However, the world we live in is progressing backwards. Technology has quickly made everything easier and it is damaging the human condition.
Since this horrid trend is bound to only increase, all we can do is sit back and poke fun at those who have let technology zombify them.
Enter the always reliable Onion.
This video is about a teenage girl that is going to be legally put down because she is useless to society.
And me, too. These two six grade girls some how have the hook-up with a variety bands and get the opportunity to interview them. They definitely don't discrimate when it comes to genres either as their interviews range from extreme metallers like Dillinger Escape Plan all the way to pop sensations like Carly Rae Jepsen.
Dillinger Escape Plan has long been one of my favorite bands. I would guess-timate that about 95% of people find them entirely intolerable and I completely understand that. However, for those of us who appreciate the uniquely strange song structures and complexity of DEP, following this band is very enriching.
Whether you love or hate their music, one thing can be universally agreed upon; their live show is UNREAL.
During last night's Revolver Golden God Awards, frontman Greg Puciato took it to a whole new level First, his face exploded into a bloody mess, then he breathed fire, and then he destroyed the entire stage, just for good measure.
Jeff Hanneman died today. He's been out of the picture for a while with a very strange infection from a spider bite (THAT'S BRUTAL), but still, no one saw this coming.
If you're a metalhead, you're into Slayer. Whether it's the classic stuff, some oddball music in between, or the newer material, everyone has some SLAYER in them.
I really hope the band discontinues making new music and touring at this point because the Slayer we've all grown up with is no more. Drummer Dave Lombardo is basically out of the band and with the death of Jeff, Slayer will never be the unstoppable force it has always been ever again.
So horns up to the sky...rest in peace Jeff-man. You've always been a great influence of mine and myself and the metal community will miss you.
