Recap by The Metal Wulf

We had Cuss Muffin and Karma from Roc City Roller Derby on hand to bring us up to speed with derby news.
Truth is, there's a lot going on. They've recently moved to Monroe Community College (Bill Gray's Ice Plex) for future bouts, and are also now members of the WFTA (Women's Flat Track Association). 
There was brief mention of No Pants Day while the girls were there, and Cuss Muffin suggested that what we needed was a No Tops Day. Not sure how that would fly, though...hmmmmm...
Somehow something was mentioned about Karma jumping over Joe as a skate stunt. The catch being, Joe has to dress as a shark, and swim around in a dunk tank, and Karma gets to dress like Fonzie from Happy Days. Personally, I say we need to make this happen before the new season is over, preferably around Joe's birthday!
Later in the evening, after Karma departed, I felt oddly compelled to give Cuss Muffin a lap dance, which didn't go quite as well as one would think. As a matter of fact, I got hip-checked...twice...and went reeling into the large wall displays where large quantities of vinyl are stored. 
The day's going to come where all of those records come pouring down... 
Darrel Lake had also returned to further promote his Wounded Warriors Project show that was held this past Saturday in Geneva.

Recap by The Metal Wulf
Started the evening off with KISS's "I've Had Enough (Into The Fire)" from Animalize, mainly because I was pretty sure it had been quite some time since anything had been played from that disc.

And I was right...

Joe was having just a little too much fun, however, as he kept playing the intro to Heaven's On Fire...over and over again. You know, the one where Paul Stanley goes..."WHOAWHOAWHOAWHOAOOOOOOO!!!!"

Indeed, it got so bad that later in the evening, when Joe played the full song, Rick took it out on my hide in the closing moments of the show. Yep, he totally lost it and pummeled me like a baby seal...

And that wasn't the only weirdness going on. There was one entire set of music where I could have sworn Joe was playing some of the worst garbage imaginable. I'm talking The Bee Gees...Andy Gibb...ABBA (of course...sigh...), and David Geddes' "Run, Joey, Run", which is possibly one of the worst 70's songs ever written.
And yet everybody else claimed that that particular set of music was about as metal as you could get...I sure wasn't hearing it!

And, to make matters worse, by the end of the evening I was so conflicted that I didn't even believe myself! Literally, nothing that came out of my mouth seemed truthful! It was definitely one of those things that sincerely make you question your sanity! Wouldn't wish that on anybody!

So, regarding normal things, we had Darryl Lake on hand to promote the Wounded Warriors Project, which is being held at the Geneva American Legion on Saturday, April 20. Featured bands include Poetry In Black, Beneath The Words, Through Lifeless Eyes, Deadlift, Here's My Obituary, Declarations, and Sworn To Remember.
Pretty sure admission is $10, or $5 with the donation of non-parishable goods to be sent to our troops. NO FOOD PLEASE!!!
At least I think I've got that right, and if I didn't, I will clarify with Darryl once more, as he arrives again on Friday night for one more night of promotion.

Speaking on Friday night, looks like we'll finally be getting a visit from at least a couple of our favorite Roc City Roller Derby girls, as I believe Cuss Muffin and Karma may be dropping by.
Should be a good time!

Recap from The Metal Wulf

Had Darrel Lake on hand to help promote the upcoming event, "Bring 'Em Home", a multi-band show to help benefit the Wounded Warrior Project at the American Legion in Geneva, NY on April 20. The show will feature a solid selection of local bands as well as some out-of-state talent, and should kick ass. Best of all, it's for a good cause! Pretty safe to say that at least a couple of us will be on hand!
Joe seemed to take a great deal of pleasure in the amount of suffering I'd been going through as a result of his implanting me with the Abba Chip.
It was bad, people. I'm dead serious when I say there are few things worse than hearing ABBA in every piece of music that makes it to your ear canal. Think I'm kidding? Television theme songs...radio of all varieties...the muzak system at work...all ABBA, all the time...
No shit, I was ready to power drill straight into my brain, from both ears... 
However, Joe WAS kind enough to turn the chip off for a brief amount of time, as we played the newest track from Darkthrone, which clocks in at almost fourteen minutes, and completely kicks ass. Looking forward to hearing the entire new disc once it's available. I'm thinking it could be an early contender for this year's Top 10...but, then, it really is far too early to say!
I was pretty much begging him to take the chip out, especially knowing that Rick, Josh, Bill, Erica, and myself were all headed to Buffalo to see Testament (along with Overkill, Flotsam & Jetsam, and 4Arm) at the Town Ballroom. I really wanted to enjoy that show, and the idea of hearing ABBA vocals emanating from Chuck Billy's throat just made me cringe... 
Things actually worked out well in the end, as Azkath was on hand, further taunting me with breath strips. He ended up pushing me a little too far, and I ended up mugging him, mercilessly, for his entire stash.
Yep, I devoured every last breath strip he had, after pummeling him and throwing him into some of the equipment, savoring the minty freshness for the rest of the evening.
Joe was so impressed by the amount of violence I directed at Seriah that he decided to cut me a break, deactivating the ABBA Chip, and allowing me to enjoy the concert in all it's Thrash-tastic goodness!
See, happy endings really do happen!
So, next installment, we'll be having Ferg and the rest of the boys from Setiva on hand. This should be a fun night to tune in, as most of us have known Ferg since his days in Loopus. Lookin' forward to this one!
