Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 5/4/11

Greetings, cats, a hectic 'n harried week for your truly, keeping production down a bit here at The Metal Minute, but I'm receiving your emails off-site and I can never say it enough, but thanks, thanks, thanks for your support.

The big whirlwind news, of course, is the death of Osama Bin Laden. I have no comment to offer, honestly. The celebration of a killing leaves me cold, even if this killing was done in the name of countless passed souls attributed to one man's deeds. If his execution brings about world peace, then fate has done its will.

While I'm starting to get the shits of this constant rain, I will again be thankful for having a roof over my head and offer my continued prayer to those around the entire world who cannot say the same thing.

Hang tight here at The Metal Minute and we'll bop and bang away true. Savvy...

CJK, how's the new Explosions? Any surprises?

Chuck, that 'deth for cello project sounds pretty wild. I suppose Mustaine should be touched his music is being selected for classical reinvention instead of hiring out a symphony to play with

Mark, didn't know about a Justice for Jason mix, but it's about time, I say.

Bob, I think I mentioned to Chuck last time around I've historically given the Dead an unfair shake and I should one day begin to really explore them. I have the hits album from the 70s that I got for a couple bucks in a grocery store and even that little bit on the comp told me I'd been wrong to slag them all these years.

cjk, I'm ashamed of myself for not dialing into the Stanley Cup as much as I should. I've watched some of the games, but mostly I've been watching the back of my eyelids lately and that pisses me off.
