Recap by The Metal Wulf

We get on some strange discussions sometimes, and Friday night was chock full of them.

Somehow we got on the topic of Ed Sullivan, which led to a further discussion of Futurama and whether or not Ed's head had been preserved on the show. I mean, obviously Richard Nixon's head has been featured abundantly, but not so sure about Ed...

Of course, me being the old-school Dungeons And Dragons geek that I am (and I'm not talking about that God-awful 80's cartoon series, I'm talking the actualy Role Playing Game...), I proudly mentioned that Gary Gygax had been featured at one point.

But then, I was the only member of the Onslaught who knew who Gary Gygax was...sigh...

From there, Josh asked if Tom Baker (Dr. Who, circa 70's-80's) had ever been featured, and I'll be damned if I know...kinda boggles the mind, really...

And that wasn't the end of the cartoon discussions.

Can't remember what it was I was laughing so hard at, but I started snorting into the mic, and Joe mentioned that at least I didn't snarf into the mic.

For those unfamiliar with the term, "snarfing" is Onslaught slang for laughing so hard that you pass things through your nose, usually liquids, and sometimes at an increased velocity, resulting in the spraying of people in front of you...

Of course, Snarf was also a character on Thundercats, which is what brought the conversation to cartoons.

Somehow Thundercats led to Voltron, which I mentioned that I was never personally wild about, as I had always thought Battle Of The Planets was better. Joe seemed highly disappointed in my lack of love for Voltron, but what can I say, I just couldn't get into it.

I will say this, Voltron beat the piss out of a certain live-action rip-off of it that came along in the 90's. God, I fucking HATED Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers...ewwwwww..

I think it was Josh who brought up Thunderbirds, an old 70's children't sci-fi program that featured marionettes, and was actually way too creepy for a lot of younger kids to watch. I know I couldn't hack it...

Gotta say, it's discussions such as these that pretty much cement the fact that we are all hopeless DORKS!!! And, really, that's okay. Most true metalheads are, I've come to find out.

So, Azkath was on hand again. Seems that Jeffie somehow got diverted last week. He had been sent to visit Joe, who was vacationing in Lake George, but he somehow ended up in Louisiana. One can only imagine what kind of weird stuff he's gonna be spewing whenever he returns...if he returns...

Azkath seems to have an idea for me to make some serious cash, but it would have to include Dave from the Last Exit. It's been made known to me, fairly recently, that Dave and I actually share a...unique...fan base.

Yeah, let's just leave it at that...

Anyhoo, this...fan base...would most likely find it highly entertaining for Dave and I to strip down into our underwear and wrestle in cake...eating the cake off of each other.

Azkath assures me that this wouldn't be considered gay, as there would be no actual sex. Now, I can honestly say that this doesn't even sound remotely fun to me, I don't care how entertaining it would be to a certain percentage of the male population. I mean, positive feedback is good, and I appreciate the support, but...I'm just not goin' out of my way to encourage it, ya know what I mean?

Especially when Azkath mentioned that adding Josh to the mix would be like adding meat to a cake sandwich...

Not for all money in the world, o Demon...Moving on to a fun topic, and one that I'm really excited about, we briefly discussed Azkath's next indie film, "Necro Zombies From Beyond Space". Now, he's been working on this movie for awhile, and we had all hoped to have helped him finish it last year, but it just didn't work out. However, things have actually fallen into place nicely over the past few months, and the project is very close to being completed!

Not gonna ruin the story for you, but I will say that if you follow either The Metallic Onslaught or The Last Exit For The Lost, you won't be overly surprised by some of the humor, and you'll see plenty of familiar faces from both shows, as well as some local musical talent in various roles.

It's been a lot of fun taking part in this thing, and I can't wait to see the finished product! I'm sure we'll have more to say on the subject as it gets nearer to completion!
