Rammstein-Jimmy Kimmel Live,Hollywood CA-5/20/11

 Rammstein for those who do not know,are of of the biggest bands in the world. They're probably the biggest metal band in Germany, Yep as big as Metallica is here. So these gentlemen haven't been here in 8 years to the USA and quite frankly I was really saddened by not having enough mula to seem em. Thank Satan for Jimmy Kimmel. Thanks to his Late night TV show Ive seen Slayer,Ozzy.and Primus preform 5 songs for free. I dont know about you guys but 5 free songs sure beat $100 for 25 songs. Any who I got a text last week Rammstein was gonna play so of coarse I made my brother in law pass me his laptop right then n there.
   
We get there early. Like the past Jimmy shows ive been to,they check,let you in and let you watch the show. This time they lagged it sick. I climbed the fence to see what the fuss was about. They were too busy setting up the pyro. Yes. It was insane! After almost 3 hours of making fun of tourist in buses takin pictures of us we finally got in.Right away they started with Du Hast and the singer got a bow n arrow thing that shot fire works and thirled it around. There was a lot of fire and people were pushing and screaming the lyrics with them since we've all been waiting years to do this. Then they played Feuer Frei! which had a lot of fireworks. They played an extra 3 songs which was badass. I so hope I get to see these guy in a full show next year. They are most likely throw the best show performance in rock n roll.
Set:
Du Hast
Feuer Frei
Sonne

R.I.P. "Macho Man" Randy Savage

A real sad day in the wrestling world. RIP to one of the greatest legends of all time. RIP "Macho Man" Randy Savage. We will miss you. OHHHHH YEAAAAHHHH!
  Just last week me and my brother in law were talking about him. When I was 10 years old my sister came home one day from a TV show taping. She was there to see some band but they were interviewing Randy Savage. She had took her boyfriend who was a huge Macho Man Fan. He told me he got a picture of him signed. I was like ahhhhhh! He offered to give it to me recently but I couldn't accept. He is a huge fan and all. Back to 02 or whatever. My sister brought me a black shirt. It had a picture of him and the worlds "Machoman.com" around it. The back said "OHHH YEAHH!". I didn't know who it was til I visited the website. It was the wrestler guy from Spider man! I wore that shirt until I became a cool kid in jr. High and gave it away. For the past months I've been pissed about that. And today...more than ever.

Regular Show-Grave Sights

Now as a 19 year old. I still channel surf through the kids channels just in case theres anything on. Many people will agree with me that children television shows have gone to poop. Some adult fans have praised shows like Adventure Time and The Misadventures of Flap Jack as great kid shows. But I disagree big time. Those shows are lame and I have no idea how kids watch em. One day while waiting for Adult Swim to come on,I stumbled upon a 15 min cartoon named "Regular Show". Right away I fell in love with the show. It had random objects as main characters. A grumpy candy ball machine,A Lollipop old man,a serious Yeti,A prankster Frankenstein Monster and his Ghost sidekick,and the main two: A Blue jay and a raccoon named Mordecai and Rigby. Both very lazy and teenage boys who just wanna have fun but always get into trouble.
  This is the Ren & Stimpy and Beavis & Butt-Head of today's youth. And I'm so glad it is. I haven't seen a cartoon this entertaining since SpongeBob Squarepants first aired,but since has lost its touch. The episode I want to show you is a brand new one and now my favorite. Me and Bigfoot founder and chief(my boss),Troy are big fans of Bruce Campbell and The Evil Dead series if you haven't noticed. This episode is a great homage to Army Of Darkness which has an Ash character. Please enjoy and watch this 10 min episode. If you got kids show em too.
Grave Sights

  I hope you enjoyed that. And I do plan on getting a muscleman tattoo on my arm. Yes his shirt will have the Anal Cunt logo on it. New episodes air every Monday on Cartoon Network at 8:15. Next weeks episode will about wrestling. I'm excited!

Witchaven-Infulsion-Simi Valley,CA 5/6/11

  My weekends been horrible. But before my girl left me,the FOR SALE sign outside my house,and ipod and computer both fucking up.... I last minute went to another Wicthaven Show. Once again this was my 4th time going to one of their shows to see em and enjoy them.
First Time:Stoned and walk in late(I think)
2: I was outside
3:Show ended to late and I was tired and left early .
 Now these 3 bands have been playing a lot together. Like this one its usually them 3 headlining(they rotate time to time) with a crapload of local bands opening. This time Witchaven headlined. And like any Vektor show,my friend had to go so I went with him. This place was connected to local Punk/Metal shirt shop inside some plaza next to a 7-11 and Carl's Jr. Ahhh thats badass. We were running late and like most Thrash shows....so were they. So by the time Exmortus was supposed to play,3rd band was barley getting started. Also first time I go to a thrash show and not one drunk person. Okay one kid who passed out,hit his head and had to be picked up by an ambulance(HAHA!). And also no pure Thrash posers. Just kids having a good time supporting their friends.

   We walk in,a band called Chains Of Atlas are playing. These kids were all right. All their friends and family were there supporting them. They had a melodic sound to them. I was sitting down and I noticed my head bobbing. For kids,they ain't bad.
Up next some fat guy in a Viking helmet and his band. They were called Quiverbone and after being bored. I went to 7-11.

 Up next was a horrible band named Suicide Addictive. Can't find shit on them. Thank Satan. I actually kinda fell a sleep during their set. Everybody wants to be Pantera nowadays. Singing about Banging chicks when your a full out pervert band is cool. Singing about banging chicks when your in a tough guy metal band is gay.

  Once again I will review a local band who I'm glad hit it pretty big. Exmortus was setting up. Lead singer and friend,Konan was going back n forth getting stuff. I kept telling him to say on stage "RIP OSAMA!". He had too! He "liked" my post on Facebook! Me and my friends went to sit down near them. The local scene there seemed to love them and were cheering for them like crazy. Konan mentioned Osama and dedicated the song In Hatreds Flame to him. I was having a WTF moment so I kept yelling "Rest In Peace!" and "Konan's Gay!". After their set which the kids loved,I asked him about it and he said it wasn't meant to be taken that way. That Liar!

   Up next was another little band that has a huge following nation wide. An like Exmortus and Witchaven was another really unique Thrash band. They blend Progressive  with Thrash. Im not a fan of Prog at all. But my buddy,whose a huge Rush fan just loves these guys and See's them whenever their somewhat near us. We drove almost 2 hours last time. Most kids were there lined up wearing their Vektor shits. Head banging to their 10 min songs(you know i like 10 seconds). My friend was headbanging. I like them but don't love em like the majority of people there do. Much respect to these guys for being super unique. Listen to Black Future if you like what I say. Plus singer had a sick shirt of the movie The Fly. "Sci-Fi Or Die!" is their motto.
  Now Wicthaven was up. I rolled up my sleeves and took my cap off for this.Now im surprised they played this. The singer,Henry was arrested 2 days ago for Peeing in Public. That guys done time before so im glad he was able to play tonight. The last remaining kids pitted like crazy and the singer sang on how he hated the police and how the Lakers have been losing. They kick ass live,and im glad for being an LA Thrash band their gaining a lot of of attention. Its hard to mix Black Metal and Thrash but these do it perfectly. Please see these guys live and listen to their album Terrorstorm. After thier great performance I talk to Konan about Star Wars. It was a great show.

RIP Osama Bin Laden 1957-2011

Fuck haters. RIP Osama Bin Laden. You were fuckin punk rock and one badass hider. It took 10 year for them to catch you but u did a great job hiding. You'll always be in my heart. After all these years 9/11 jokes are still funny. RIP

‎"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." -Some dude claiming to beMartin Luther King, Jr"

T.S.O.L.-The Grand Romance Riverboat-Long Beach,CA

  Sorry for the lag. My comp has a virus as big as the sad news. Yes I'm depressed about it. Anywho I walked to my buddys house one morning all early and we drove to our local Community College. The punk rock legend,Jack Grisham(TSOL,Joykiller,West Coast Dukes) and he had just written his memoir,"An American Dream".  After finding the damn auditorium we walked in 10 min late(not missing much),got front row seats, and he had started speaking about his book. The book is not just another "Rock Star Biography". What makes this book more unique than Snookies? He lives his life with Satan and God guiding him in his shoulders.I looked around to notice just me and my friends were the only punk rockers there. So many local kids were shocked when he said stuff like,"Yeah I was on crack when my daughter was born" and stuff like that. Some girl asked him about his band and as soon as he said T.S.O.L. me and my buds started clapping and cheering to our idol. He responded to the girl "Its called TSOL,it stand for True Sounds Of Liberty. You wont like us unless your a CRIMINAL!" OF course he looked right at us when he said that. After the speech we went to go talk to him and get our books signed. Well they did not me,I got my flyer signed. After we took pics and hugged him he told us about a free show that weekend on a boat. Of course we told we'd be there. I have not read this book yet but I will. You know you wanna as well.
  Fast forward to the weekend and we go to a boat. A band is already playing. People are just staring at em. These guys were middle aged calm dudes playing some good punk rock. They are Love Canal and are a good piece of history of Orange County Punk Rock. They did shows in '82 with OC greats Channel 3 and Adolescents but broke up. They reunited in 07 and have since been playing shows with the great ones. Singer seemed very calm but had a great voice. Tho people wenrt really into them I thought they did a very great job and I will be looking for thier music.
 Up next was a band I was very looking forward to seeing. They are called Yeastie Boys. They dress as clowns and do punk rock parody's. When I was walking to the boat I saw them walking as well. It was nice standing in line with a dude with a red wig and huge sun glasses. They went up on the mini stage. All 20 of them. They seem to act the same ways in cars,same goes for stages. They started playing their version of Institutionalized and right away went to Wild In The Streets(Clowns In The Streets). I found this really amusing. Clowns were actually doing their jobs and people were pitting. I was really into it but I couldn't help from laughing from what they were singing about. Circus Producer(Pun on Dead Boys Sonic Reducer),Acrobat(Adolescents Amoeba) and Holiday in Clownbodia(Dead Kennedys). They were a fun band. Since the boat was 3 stairs people were throwing confetti and balloons and stuff toys to the audience. As soon as they finished I fell in love with them. I will be seeing these clowns again. After they were done they were in the pit and blowing their horns for every band that played

 After a band called The Hated played. They were also OC pioneers and this was thier first show in 20 years. I cant find anything all about this band. Except one complaint from and old skool guys saying its just the singer. They did a decent job and the clowns were ging to crazy to these guys. They were good but nothing special in my book.

  Up next was a band you may have heard of called The Crowd. These guys still play shows with big names like Bad Religion and Social Distortion. Their local fans adored em so they had people singing along.Its good to know old skool bands like these can still play huge arena shows and still little boats in their towns. The guy for being 50ish still danced his ass off and his voice reminded me a lot of The Dickies. I need to check out their music. They were great and still to this day are so underrated.
 Finally. My 4th time seeing the legendary T.S.O.L. Right away the place got crowded. They took forever but finally Jack put his pen down and went to the stage. I went  upfront and like my past 3 shows,I sang and shouted every song lyric. Jack had to stop during in the middle of a song cause he blanked out. He said, "Sorry for that,I just imagined this boat sinking,and was thinking how I would get out since theres one door." he continued to sing. He asked for request but then said "Fuck that this shows free,you get whatever we want to play." After all the stage diving and nasty 50 year olds in bikinis complaining the show was sadly over. TSOL is one band you must see live. If your a TSOL virgin,then your obviously not Punk Rock and haven't heard their debut album Dance With Me. Go see em if there ever in your hood. Its rare but worth it.
