Some thoughts on last night’s Anthrax / Testament show:
Testament are really, really good. I feel like I may have seen them before and don’t remember, but I will remember this.
Lamb of God owe Testament some royalties. That riff from ‘Into The Pit’ sounds a lot like the riff on ‘Laid To Rest’.
Scott Ian is aging like a fine wine.
Anthrax played ‘Deathrider’, one of my favorite Belladonna-era songs, and no one cared. They dedicated it to the guy who got shot at Metropolis, tho’, which was nice.
I guess not having Belladonna try to sing anything off We’ve Come for You All was a blessing in disguise. Nonetheless, I was sad to hear nothing from that album. I guess I’ll have to wait another five years for that reunion?
Twenty year old boys need to keep growin’ that hair down to their waist and wearing them denim vests and shitty leather jackets because they make my eyes happy.
I’ve seen Anthrax many, many times, and I have only this to say… The John Bush years? Those were golden…
I got one of these. I didn’t use it though.
EDIT: I’m being told that ‘Deathrider’ is pre-Belladonna. That explains a lot.

Super psyched for my Bellflower setlist this afternoon at Fantasia. The film is at 3pm, but get there early, I’m gonna have some Dillinger Escape Plan, Doomriders and Voivod on deck for you, as well as some songs about Cadillacs (Anthrax, anyone?).

things that are on my mind:

Hesher, the movie, opened this past Friday, but not up here… dammit.

Anthrax’s 2003 album We’ve Come For You All remains an underground gem. I miss John Bush. Still one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen.

How much of a turnoff it is to see the endless stream of pathetic dudes submitting webcam pics to fuckyeahbeards with cheapo solicitations for attention. Lame. I just want to look at photos of occasionally hot guys with facial hair, I never said I wanted to hear you talk. (FYI, the direct url hides any text associated with each photo, but the entries on my feed do not).

If This TV keeps showing awesome/crappy movies like Roadhouse and S.F.W., I may never stop watching it.

Rapture, rapture, rapture, Project Bluebeam, rapture.

There is a short list of words one should always take extra care to spell correctly. One of those words is “rapping”.
