No, No, I Didn’t Go To Indio

Posted in Concerts, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2011 by metalaxis

So it took me a long time to write about it cause I’m still really sad.  I never made it to see the Big 4.  I called a bunch of stations and lost on a lot of KROQ giveaways. I almost used my rent money to go but I have too many posters and CD’s to have on the street.  So instead I got really wasted and high and listened to all of my Metallica, Slayer and Megadeth albums until I passed out.  I’m glad my neighbor doesn’t do his drugs.

Here’s a link to a Spanish Christian radio I called for tickets.  I was desperate!

Bands Need To Stop!

Posted in Concerts with tags , , , , , , , , on March 11, 2011 by metalaxis

Okay, so I’m trying to find tickets to see the Big 4 in Indio when I get an email telling me that members of S.I.N. Club can get pre-sale tickets tomorrow to see Mötley Crüe this summer. Okay. Bands. Listen. It’s really hard to find cash to see you, so stop playing back to back. I need like 5 months between pre-sale tickets. I’m gonna do some web design work for some guy on Craigslist this weekend, but it’s not a lot of money. Like $25. So… stop playing or give me free tickets.

Looking for a Free Ticket to see The Big 4 in Indio

So I really really really want to go see this show but I don’t have any money and my mom won’t let me sell her computer. If you’re a radio station or someone who has tickets to giveaway I’d be a great winner. If you have two that would be better, cause then I could take my friend Chandra.

Vince Neil Hasn’t Learned His Lesson

Posted in Rock Stars with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2011 by metalaxis

So TMZ says Vince Neil got a DUI again. You’d think rock stars would know that when you get loaded you should get a stretch limo with a hot tub in back and continue partying. I don’t know why Vince wouldn’t want to keep partying? When you drive you can’t party. You have to watch the road. Maybe he’s getting old. Not like age old, but old like I don’t wanna have a good time all night old or, I don’t trust anyone to do things for me cause I know I’m old so I have to prove I’m young or, don’t touch my things, I drive my way and I only like to do things my way old. Good news is he’ll be in jail for 15 days, so hopefully I’ll get a chance to get in there and meet him.

Woh Sweden

So I just watched Enforcer’s new video for their song Midnight Vice.  I may move have to move to Sweden. Great scream at 1:43 from Olof “Enforcer”. It would be cool to hear what a few whiskeys would do to his voice.

Top 10 Riffs of the 80’s? More like, “Of All Time!”

Posted in Rock Stars with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 20, 2010 by metalaxis

So I just read about this article by Michael Wright for Gibson.com where Michael lists his Top 10 Riffs of the 1980’s.  You’ve gotta be really brave to make a list like that, cause like, there were a lot of great riffs in the 80’s. Thing is, I think Michael was wrong. Not only did he forget Metallica and Van Halen as well as a few other bands, but he’s wrong to say these riffs were the best of just the 80’s. I think some of them were the best of all time! Namely #’s 9, 6, 5, obviously 4, 3 (maybe shoulda been 1), 2 (cause it was based on my mom), and 1. The rest of those songs I’ll just pretend they never happened.

AS THEY SLEEP Video Blog – No Party In Sight

Posted in Rock Stars with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 19, 2010 by metalaxis


As They Sleep put out a video blog showing what went on behind the scenes to make their music video for “Oracle of the Dead”. First of all, it’s not a good idea for a band to take videos of what goes on behind the scenes.  Most of the time you can get arrested for what you do.  But I figured if As They Sleep wants to show how they party, I’ll watch it and see if I’d wanna party with them.

Turns out the video blog was really weird.  There weren’t any girls except when they were shooting the music video.  And those girls were wearing long sleeve shirts and hoodies.  No skin showing at all!   Sort of reminded me of the one time I got backstage to meet Rob Halford.

Also no drugs or booze.  There was a kid in the video, so maybe he was just slow bringing the stuff to the set. Kids aren’t as good at that as they used to be.  Still, it’ll be cool to see the music video when it’s done.
