Recap by The Metal Wulf
Kind of a miracle that the show even happened on this evening, as the East Coast was being battered by a winter storm called Nemo...
Nemo...fucking Nemo...who names a storm Nemo?
I guess I get the whole nautical thing, Captain Nemo...Finding Nemo...but what the hell?
Pardon me if I seem just a trifle bitter toward our recent weather patterns. The fact is, had it not been for that piece of shit Nemo and some added accumulations courtesy of a large lake effect storm, I would have been in Rochester that night, along with Bill, Erica, Josh, Seriah Azkath, and Arydaea Insanity to see Doro Pesch, as well as possibly get an audio interview with her.
Yeah, I'm still pretty pissed, not that it does much good. I mean, you can shake your fist at the skies all you want, but let's face it, the only thing you're going to do is look like a complete ass...
When I found out the we were still on for the Onslaught, I initially decided to just hang back. I mean, we were under a State Of Emergency, after all. But then Joe called me, asked me why I was being such a puss, and threatened to kick me in the vagina.
Novel idea, considering I don't have one. Unless it's really, REEEEAAALLLY well hidden...
So, with that being said, we rode up and it was on with the show!
With the weather being what it was, there was some joking around going on about wearing each other like Tauntauns is any of us got stuck outside. It was pretty solidly decided that I'd be the one who smelled the worse on the inside, but that kinda goes without saying. To be honest, a further agreement suggested that I should just be used as a new form of bio-chemical weapon.
Getting back to the Bronie Bullshit, Joe had mentioned something about there being a whole new line of My Little Pony toys being released, along with a Pony Castle...
Seriously, not my thing. Not even remotely interested, don't believe a word of it...
I'd mentioned how I'd finally heard Ghost's cover of ABBA's "I'm A Marionette", which is going to be included on their upcoming new disc, entitled "Secular Haze".
It's a good track, suitably creepy to fit Ghost's style, yet I found myself wondering if I'd ever even heard the original. I couldn't for the life of me remember, so further searching on YouTube not only allowed me to hear that, but to also notice ABBA tracks that I hadn't heard since I was in my early teens...
How I despise admitting this...
Yes, I went ahead and listened to almost half an hour worth of ABBA tracks! I confess! And I even found songs I remember actually LIKING as a kid!
So, as a result, I've had "Take A Chance On Me" stuck in my head for almost a week at this juncture. Yeah, that's right, almost constantly since last Tuesday, no bullshit, that song keeps popping up in my brain.
It's drivin' me nuts, too. Well, crazier than I already was...
And to make matters worse, I can't even enjoy other music anymore, thanks to Joe. I'd dozed off in between talk breaks and apparently planted something in me he's calling the Abba Chip. This chip makes all music I hear sound like ABBA songs.
Don't believe me? Well, I tried listening to AC/DC not long ago, and all I heard was shit like "Fernando", "Waterloo", and fucking "Dancing Queen"...
I've been trying to find out where in my body this chip currently resides, with absolutely no luck. Believe me, I'm almost at a juncture where I'm ready to rip out some potentially important organs and/or body parts in order to get this thing out of me...
So, with that being said, hopefully there will be enough of me left to make it to the Onslaught on Friday, and hopefully I'll be able to enjoy some heavy freakin' metal by then!
