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!

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

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.

Sebastian Bach Gets Arrested for Being a Rock Star?

Posted in Rock Stars with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2010 by metalaxis

What is wrong with Canada?

Sebastian Bach got arrested I guess for smashing glass, fighting, and having some weed. If anything he should have been arrested for not having more drugs on him.  Still, I think it’s cool that he knows how to get fucked up and piss people off.  Canadian police just need to know it’s nothing personal, it’s just how rock stars say, “I’m having a really great time here.  Thanks for the hospitality.” Well Sebastian, I hope the rest of your trip in Ontario is more understanding.

Awesome Weekend! Part 1 “The Comedy Store and Nate”

Posted in Out and About Town, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2010 by metalaxis

So LACC is doing some construction, so I got to do my class on The Strip!!!! I couldn’t believe it! I found a bus that drops me off right there. I am so gonna go back after I make enough from teaching and have an extra $1.50 for the bus. Good thing is my extension course on “How To Party Correctly” has been a real hit. This week I taught my class how to get the attention of a band so you can get backstage. Pretty simple: Get to the front of the stage, get on a guy’s shoulders and take your top off. Works great. I wanted to do a demonstration since like, a lot of people don’t learn by hearing stuff. So, since I was on The Strip, I just stepped outside and met this guy Nate. He kept saying something about working at the Key Club. I got him a beer and he let me get on his shoulders. He’s not in a band or anything, but he was pretty cool. We talked bands for awhile and took some photos. I was hoping to party after but the bus stops running pretty early and Echo Park is far from The Strip. Still, had a lot of fun. Can’t wait to go back.
