How's it hanging, droogies? Welcome to another midweek checkpoint session at your favorite drop-in, The Metal Minute!
Exciting stuff over on this side of cyberworld, most importantly being given the gift of sight, courtesy of a generous gift from my folks. Though I'm still in the sharpening phases, when you've spent 32 of your 39 years in glasses, seeing the world unshackled is one of the most exhilirating life experiences one can have. I've always been one to take time and examine the little details of our world around us, but it's twice the spirit of exploration under healed eyes, I assure you...
This week I had a nice sitdown with Ace Frehley, which is always fun getting to talk to an original member of Kiss. God bless Peter Criss as well, who I'm sure you've read managed to catch breast cancer in time and get it cut out. Take a lesson from Peter, guys; don't think yourself a pussy for squeezing your pecs for lumps. It could save your life.
I'm also pleased to announce I'll be joining the Fangoria.com team in their Musick department, so a big-time thank you to that esteemed crew for the opportunity...
Because I took the weekend out to attend to my eyes, the listening sessions were limited, so my playlist this week is very slack. Doesn't help I got stuck on the new Pelican album for much of the week, either, ha!
More insanity prevails upcoming with dear friends from out-of-town crashing with us and our boy's baptism this weekend. Stay tuned for upcoming goodies and plenty of Halloween Hoardefest as we get into the final ten days of the month.
Unlocking the wolves over here, I am yours as always at The Metal Minute...
