As always, here's hoping life is going good for all of my readers. Love you all, even the hecklers.
Daddyhood keeps me on the run and the general schism continues to grind in a preventive manner so I get slowed down from a steady diet of posting, but your continued support of The Metal Minute--which has not dwindled one iota looking over the recent hit figures from last month--keeps me invigorated. I must prioritize between my obligations and some very hot leads, which inflates the production slowdown, but well know I'll be keeping y'all busy here in the upcoming days.
Halloween Hoardefest will resume, of course, and as I get my agenda board (yes, I really have one) cleared, be looking for more metal fun and frivolity in the immediate future. At the moment, I've posted motivation notes all around the house to keep me focused. I have a vivid picture of the future. Like Prince sings, "I've seen the future and it will be...I've seen the future and it works..."
Because of the mad dog pace of last week, my playlist is obscenely short, but those are the breaks. I was watching the MTV channels while working in the man cave this past weekend and I do have to say even though Pink is hardly metal, I was very impressed by her trapeze performance at this year's MTV Video Awards. Even Lady Ga Ga, who is a bit robotic in her gesticulations managed to get my attention with her blood smearing at the same event. Of course, such antics inspired me to get the latest Novembers Doom album fired up...
A hefty word of praise for the new Ancestors album Of Sound Mind, holy smokes. Grab that sucker, as it just dropped yesterday. Gimme some Floyd, gimme some Hawkwind, gimme some King Crimson, gimme some Neurosis, all in one organ-drenched stew, ahhhhh... My review of the album should be running this week at About.com Heavy Metal.
K, time to bounce. Cheers, gang...
