Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 2/3/10

Greetings from Snowville Perpetua...

Hope everyone's staying warm as winter rages on. If you see someone on the street who appears downtrodden, yeah, they might be a scam artist trolling for money and those dirty souls will find themselves in purgatory answering for their slimy convictions. Instead, take that person a cup of coffee or hand over a hot burger or something. You never know who's really in need of something on their stomachs.

It's been off to the races on my second novel and as of last night, the final plot threads tied themselves up in my mind, so I am down to the finish line at 11 chapters to go. Any literary agents out there reading this, drop me a line, would ya? Love to send you a proposal and sample chapters!

Over at House of Hair Online you can find my new chat with Jeremy Goldberg of Age of Evil. It's rather more expansive than his Take 5 session here, so check it out. There's a new gunslinger in the cyber dustbowl, Kik Axe Over yonder you can find my interviews with Full Metal Jackie and Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull of Leaves' Eyes. Both ladies were in-depth, talkative and very entertaining. Get some!

Here at the Metal Minute I'm pleased to see the same hit numbers as usual and your continued faithfulness will be rewarded with upcoming reviews of Hypno5e, Dommin, Krakow and others, and perhaps a DVD looksee or two as time permits. I ask your patience as I dedicate myself to finishing the first draft of the novel.

As always, ya'll are is our bond...

My friend and I were recently discussing about technology, and how integrated it has become to our daily lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of uploading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I dream about all the time.

Hey Jeff,do you have the Norma Jean vinyl box set that Suburban Home put out a year or so back? Nice color vinyl and a picture disc. It was on sale a few months back and I got it for $15.

Jeff said...

Bob, I just checked it out and it looks sick. Where did you find it for $15? I can only find it for around $40?

bob_vinyl said...

Suburban Home/Vinyl Collective had a warehouse sale and stuff was ridiculously cheap. I think it was back in November. It was crazy. For $25 you got five records (that box only counted as three even though there's four records in the set). On top of that, they just threw in 10 CDs of their choice! It was probably the best sale I've ever seen online.

Jeff said...

Damn that is a good deal. Keep me in the loop if you ever find anymore deals like that on vinyl.

bob_vinyl said...

I certainly would have told you about it. I just didn't realize bands like that were up your alley.

Jeff said...

Typically it's not my kind of music, but lately metalcore has slowly been growing on me.
