Well, the highlights for this week were two interviews that Joe and I conducted last week when Carmine and Vinny Appice's DrumWars show rolled into Waterloo, NY. Not only did we get to sit down with Carmine and Vinny, we also got to talk for a bit with guitarist Ethan Brosh, a remarkable talent in his own right.
You can check both interviews out on my YouTube page (Randy MetalWulf), as well as some fun performance clips from that show.
Jeffie was once again back, doing what he does best...annoying the hell out of us...
Okay, he went above and beyond annoying on this night, to be perfectly honest. There had been a brief discussion in between talk breaks about ECW, 'cuz we're a bunch of wrestling geeks, and I'd said something about how brutal it was to see Tommy Dreamer get a cheese grater rubbed across his forehead by the Dudley Boyz. Joe brought this up in a roundabout manner by saying that I WANTED to have the same thing done to me, which is about as far from the truth as he's ever gotten.
Of course, Jeffie will believe anything that he hears, so it wasn't too much later that he came back into the studio with a cheese grater...a RUSTY cheese grater...and he proeeded to shred the bejesus out of my forehead. He'd also mentioned that he thought it may have been the same cheese grater that the Almighty Monkey had once used to circumcise himself, which really didn't make me feel better about the whole procedure. As a matter of fact, Jeffie went ahead and attempted to circumcise ME with it...which was an exercise in futility, because that little matter had been tended to LONG ago. By the time he was done, BOTH of my heads looked like raw hamburger, and I was bleeding profusely.
To make matters worse, the damned cheese grater got stuck in my forehead at one point, and that jackass swung a cookie sheet at me to knock the freakin' thing loose. THAT little stunt peeled my scalp back like a banana, causing more bleeding, and more pain.
But wait, that wasn't all!
Jeffie then decided he needed to cleanse the wound with rubbing alcohol, and then patch my head up with duct tape.
Yeah...big help, there, jackass...
Good thing I've been cloned and can heal pretty fast now. Can you imagine the kind of scars that would actually leave?
I don't remember much about the rest of that final segment, aside from the fact that we were getting ready to play a track from an incredible death metal band called Alkaloid, which I'd jokingly referred to as Arkanoid, being the gaming geek that I am. Somehow Arkanoid got compared to Dig Dug, and that's where things get a bit hazy in my memory, because every time I hear the name Dig Dug, I want to start thumping bibles and preaching hellfire and brimstone sermons...
Honestly, I don't remember a damned thing above and beyond that...
