Recap by The Metal Wulf;

Rick and Josh were not in attendance on this particular evening, as they had gone to Buffalo to see Killswitch Engage and Shadows Fall at the Town Ballroom. That left Joe and myself to get the ball rolling, actually realizing that it had never actually been just the two of us on the show before. This seemed to make Joe a little nervous, and I asked him if it was about all that silly Brony business. He agreed that it was, and I had to reassure him that at no time in my life had I ever found My Little Pony's to even be remotely interesting, much less the subject of some twisted fetish.
I swear...never watched the program, never even personally looked at one of the toys until Lance dropped 'em into my lap!
Speaking of Lance, he almost made Joe and I crap ourselves simultaneously.
Joe had heard people lurking about in the parking lot, and I figured it must have just been some wandering college students, blowing off steam after finals and before going home for their winter break.
Lance then announced his presence at the window, very loudly, scaring the fucking bejesus out of both of us...
Can't be too mad at Lance, though, because if he hadn't, it might have been hours before we figured out why it was so damned cold in the studio. Seriously, what kind of moron leaves a window open in the middle of fucking December?
Anyhow, Lance brought us up to date on his experiences meeting George Lynch, Warren DeMartini, Rob Marcello, and Michael Angelo Battio at the House Of Guitars. Very cool experiences, I'm sure, and I severly wished I'd known about that clinic when I could have requested time off from work, as Lynch and Demartini are both among my favorite 80's guitarists.  I'll just have to keep a sharper eye on the House Of Guitars event calendar, I guess... 
Tim Binder is back in the area for the holidays, and beyond. At least for the foreseeable future. He'd dropped in after going to see Flo-Rida at some event called the Jingle Ball...most definitely NOT a metal event, from the sounds of it...what are we gonna do with this guy?
Of course, the same could be said for me... 
Anyhoo, we brought Tim up to date on a good deal of things, including that ridiculous Bouncy House Cake Battle between me and Dave, which I'm happy to say has had little to no recent attention beyond Friday's discussion.
Best to just forget the whole thing, not like we're actually ever going to pull it off...
And, with that being said, there's really nothing more to mention this week. Our next show may very well be our last, as it falls directly on December 21, which, thanks to all this Mayan Calendar silliness, we have officially dubbed our End Of The World Show.
Yup, tune in and celebrate the Apocalypse with the Metallic Onslaught! I mean, if we're all goin' to Hell in a handbasket, we may as well do it with some kick-ass music to accompany us!
And, if there ISN'T an Apocalypse...there WILL be a visit from Satan Claus again! That's right, hopefully everything works out for the better,  that way ol' Satan Claus can drop by after midnight to warn all the bad kiddies that he's coming for them on the 26th to confiscate all their presents!
Oh, I should stress that, no matter how things go down on Friday night, there will not, and I repeat WILL NOT, be a Pantsless Santa Dance, as Azkath erroneously claimed in a falsified document that been forged in my name.Utterly ridiculous!
Seriously, who would even believe I was capable of such a thing...
