i took a trip! read about it here.

evidence of my lame yuppie side on my (gasp!) house blog here.

It took me 10 years to buy a bullet belt, and another five to realize that it’s time for me to have a kutte (German for habit, as in a priest’s habit), or battle vest/jacket, despite my relatively advanced age. Here is the base garment, in all its virginal glory, soon to be slowly taken over with patches. 

The overall theme will be “dirty hesher” and not so much “up the punx”, so I plan on keeping the hardware to a minimum. Of course, I will also not be hiding my love for comparatively not legit bands such as Kiss and Poison (y’all are wrong, btw) so I will be curious about reactions to the final product.  

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”.

HESHER is coming out May 13!  I loved making this movie, and I love how it turned out.  It’s hilarious, but it’s not just funny, it’s smart, it’s sad, it’s hopeful, it’s heartfelt, and it fuckin rocks.  Natalie decided to produce Spencer’s script for a reason, and by the way her character’s nothing like you’ve seen her.  Devin, the protagonist, is a truly talented young actor.  Rainn gave a legit no-joke badass dramatic performance.  And, I’m humbled to say, Metallica themselves liked it so much they gave us their music, they never give their stuff to movies!
Now this really is an “indie” film, meaning it’s being independently released without any huge corporations behind the marketing and advertising and all that jazz.  500 Days of Summer had that “indie” spirit, but it was put out by Fox Searchlight who has tons of resources to spread the word.  HESHER’s just got us.  So pass it around!

YESSSSS. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time…
