Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 8/19/09

Howdy, howdy, readers, Wednesday already?

After awhile you start becoming numb to life's hardships, so I leave a dreadful week behind and subsequently watch my air conditioning die this week. Sure beats huffing around in a desert with fatigues and equipment strapped to my back in a strained environment, so I'll grunt quietly and bear this for the moment.

On the the flipside, I will be a guest tonight on The Ripple Effect web radio program at 8:00 pm PST or 11:00 pm EST, which should be hellafun.

I did managed to kick out lots of jams this past week to keep the spirits up and to get a little work done here and thar. Though not everyone thinks it's their best, I'm a sucker for MC5's Back in the USA, albeit all of their albums are cooler than cool. I've also fallen real hard into the new Chthonic album, which you can read my review in due time at Heavy Metal along with the new Gwar album, Pantheon I and Onslaught's Live Damnation.

I have a write-up of the 40th anniversary edition of the Woodstock movie for DVD, and the bonus features disc is faboo, just for the three Creedence Clearwater Revival cuts alone, wowzers. I might have to schedule a trip to the Woodstock grounds and museum to take my mama up there when times get a bit easier. At the very least, it inspired me to jot down a couple poems and get lost in nonsensical wish-I-was-there thoughts. Who wouldn't want to have been there bear witness to that comsic Jimi performance, sheesh?
