Your Mistake

Self portraits seemed like a simple enough task for my kids to conquer for a quick way to label their desks for their parents at back to school night. Then I stumbled across this one and nearly lost it. Sooooo good and no he looks nothing like this in real life. I give him a year or two before he begins listening to Hellhammer or Darkthrone.

Last Warning

Not going to have much time to post in the coming months. Daily posts are coming to a close. Updates whenever I feel like it or have something worthwhile to post.

Big Plans

I've been digging a lot of the Fashionable Idiots Records releases as of late. I hate to say it, but I just happened to order this Condominium seven inch as an add on, but I am very glad I did because I've been listening to "Barricade" a lot ever since. The track reminds me a lot of Black Flag with the chugging bass intro into the screaming guitars and vocals going from talking to howling. "Big Plans" is the b-side and is good, but "Barricade" is definitely the stand out for me. It's really good and you should check them out. Then again, what do I know?

Tired of Being Alive

I had something planned for today, but honestly after seeing this tire cover in the parking lot of our local supermarket, I completely forgot what it was. The fact that it is on Geo Tracker makes it even better and the fact that there is someone out there who thinks this is awesome makes me shudder. The tire condom makes the Tweety Bird cover look almost classy. Almost.

You won't be seeing this scene for a while...whoever is the last person off the island, don't forget to turn off the lights.

Ultra Mantis

This showed up on the side of our house the other day. I had to snap some sort of picture to give a better idea of the size. That's the corner of our red shutter in the second pic. Thing was huge:

This year has been a pretty good year for shows. I really didn't expect a whole lot of surprises in the remaining months of 2009, but I gotta say that this was probably the most amped I've ever been over a mass email:

Hi, this is Sean writing from Youngblood. I thought you might be interested in knowing that Rancor will be playing a full set at our showcase. Thanks!
