Thanks Windows XP.

Bring The Gold. [Do you know what today is?]

March 17th, 2011 by

From beloved animator Brad Neely comes this important treatise on St. Patrick's Day -- or as we call it: Amateur Drinkers' Night.

As an aside to Pat: It's easy to say you chased the snakes out of Ireland when there weren't any there to begin with.

And just like that, the village was emptied.

Stop that.

Stop that.

No. Stop that.

Get away from me.

It's a "Let's Sing About Volcanoes In The State Of Washington" Wednesday.

September 1st, 2010 by

Volcanoes? In Washington state?

Yeah, man; don't you remember Mount St. Helens?

Mount St. Helens goes up.

Y'know what? Let's sing about it.

Start you off with the sunny/chunky sounds of The Presidents Of The United States Of America with their helpfully explanatory song "Volcano."

(Video via YouTube user presidentsrock, the official YouTube channel of The Presidents Of The United States Of America.)

Next, the crushing mathcore power of Tacoma's-own Botch. In the past I've verbally explained their music as what it would sound like if The Dillinger Escape Plan and Phillip Glass were having a drunken giggling slap-fight 'round a campfire in an Olympic Peninsula trailer park under the stars.

Yes.

NOW THE HEAT IS MY NEW FRIEND

From the back of a shirt by the band Botch celebrating the re-release of their album American Nervoso.

Further, I once described their couplet of songs "Afghamistam / Micaragua" thusly:

There is a moment in the song where after a lull, the track breaks open like a herd of Clydesdales bursting from a snow-swept barn in slow motion. "RIIIDE!" bellows singer David Verellen as the song thunders downslope.

Yes.

Can't recommend their work highly enough. It is monstrously inertia-laden, gleefully-abstruse, complex metal music for adults (and/or anyone). Yes.

So, here are Botch delivering their devastatingly-propulsive vulcanphobic song "Hutton's Great Heat Engine" live at Chain Reaction in Anaheim on 2000/03/25.

(Thanks to YouTube user axewound.)

Let's be safe out there, Washington residents. The Earth can be unpredictable, yet that tension (tectonic 'n otherwise) inspired some excellent music.

(This one's for Jon and Tanky and Elbow and even Kyle. Inspired by a conversation with Maria Rose. Let's all be safe out there.)

Sexpigeon.org demands results from their soup.

September 1st, 2010 by

Serious demands:

'You had better fix all my problems, soup, or I’m barfing you right back up.'

"You had better fix all my problems, soup, or I’m barfing you right back up."

One more gentle example of why we love Sexpigeon.org so, so much.

Today is Judgment Day.

August 29th, 2010 by

According to the movie Terminator 2, today is Judgment Day:

T-800: The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.
Sarah Connor: Skynet fights back.
T-800: Yes. It launches its missiles against the targets in Russia.
John Connor: Why attack Russia? Aren't they our friends now?
T-800: Because Skynet knows the Russian counter-attack will eliminate its enemies over here.

So, today is a day that's already passed where nuclear war was to happen but didn't.

That's worth celebrating.

Terminator 2 is one of the finest action films ever made. Watch it today. And don't forget, there is no fate but what we make.

Here is the original teaser trailer:

And for good measure, here's a video from Bay Area string metal favorites Judgement Day. This video is for their song "Into The Abyss," and it has zombies in it. Enjoy.

(Thanks Dad, for taking me to my first legal Rated R film.)

"Have you heard the news? The dead walk!"

August 25th, 2010 by

Repeating the opening lines of NoMeansNo's havoc-tastic song "It's Catching Up" -- indeed; the dead walk.

Uh-oh.

Here's why: writer Robert Kirkman is bringing his excellent, wrenching zombie comic book series The Walking Dead to television with the help of Shawshank Redemption director Frank Darabont.

Most excellent.

The premiere episode is slated to hit on Halloween. Set your recorder.

Better keep on movin'. And with due speed.

Here's the trailer for the series:

And for good measure, here's NoMeansNo's "It's Catching Up."
