Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 6/2/10

Hails, loyal readers...

Hope everyone's extended weekend (for those who apply) went well and everyone is stuffed on cookouts and all limbs intact. In my neighborhood, some late night clods were blowing things up to the tune of pipe bombs, which brought my proverbial cutlass out at the ready should my kid be woken up at 1:00 a.m. Otherwise, a very busy weekend with little rest.

I met a pair of children on Saturday who really touched me. The first is a one-year-old girl with spina bifida named Abby and the second is an older boy, Erik, who has dealt with a rare skin disease since birth where he is easily cut and his flesh comes off in large chunks. I'm impressed by the family who've adopted these two remarkable kids and the humane treatment they give. If these children are to enjoy a future happy life, they're in the best position to do so in this household. Erik especially warmed me with his courageousness under the painful circumstances he lives with. His life is consumed by constant bandaging, yet he has the most cheerful disposition I've seen in anyone outside of my own boy. I was very inspired by Erik's sweet candor and when he told us he was Superman, I had to agree with him. I doubt I'll be able to listen to death metal lyrics with the same disaffectation again.

Here at The Metal Minute, stick around for more Metal Louvre selections, a look at the new Canvas Solaris and the Lamb of God anthology Hourglass, and Part 2 of my 2003 interview with Dee Snider.

Mark: At this point I really have no idea. I have so much music that anything that I've acquired in the past 5 years has fallen to the way-side of my memory.
If you want I can't send you a like for download (depending on your moral restrictions), but as for actual purchase I can not help you.

Most of the bands that I can't find anywhere in stored (do not like paying for digital downloads or cds offline) I usually acquisition from various sites.
