Blarg!

Posted: September 8, 2010 in Uncategorized

Well, here we are at the fourth location for this blog.

So long Vox, we hardly knew ye!

Hopefully I can get off my butt and post more now that I have a new fancy blog with a lame name because some jerk stole my original title.

Thanks buddy, I was “delicious candy” since 2006.

I hope you choke on your blog.

I'm disgusted at the way I've been ignoring this blog lately.

I've seen AC/DC, Motley Crue, Kiss and Iron Maiden all in the last year and I didn't write about any of these shows.

huh?

Oh well, I guess I'll just go over them now, just for myself.

AC/DC – this was my first time seeing AC/DC and they were awesome.
Unfortunately, it was at BC place so I was super far away, but it was still a super-fun show.

Motley Crue – I've seen the Crue once before, but that was a long time ago.
Again, a fun show, not a great turn-out at GM place, but the floor and lower bowl were packed and there was a great vibe in the place.
It was a pretty stripped-down show, no big screens and not a lot of pyro.
Technical difficulties marred "Home Sweet Home" causing Vince Neil to proclaim "Well, sometimes things just don't fuckin' work" so that was pretty funny.

Kiss – 2nd time seeing Kiss, first with Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer.
It was a good show, but Tommy singing "Shock Me" seemed a bit disrespectful to me.
Oh well, a good time was had by all, I had a lot of fun at this show.

Iron Maiden – Awesome, I love Maiden.
2nd time seeing them as well, and they did not disappoint.
I did hear some complaints that there was "not enough old stuff" as they did a lot of new material, from about 2000 onwards, but I didn't mind.
It gave me a chance to rediscover those albums as I usually reach for a "classic" Maiden album instead of a newer one.
Also, not a lot of pyro, but I barely noticed, I was so into the show.

My one problem with the show was how much I hate watching Janick Gers.
If you like Janick, I have no problem with that, please don't post any nasty comments, they will not change my mind about him.
I've heard he's a super nice guy, but watching him live is embarrassing.
He jumps around the stage like some idiot teenager in an airband and he's a 53 year old man in Iron freakin' Maiden!!!!
Every time I looked at his side of the stage I was absolutely filled with a burning rage, and I thought to myself, "is this really how I should feel while watching my all-time favorite band?"
Anyway, Bruce and everyone else were amazing as always, Adrian Smith tripped and fell and if I kept my eyes to the left I enjoyed the crap outta this show.

ANVIL!!!!!

A couple weeks ago, I saw the movie: "Anvil – the story of Anvil!" and really enjoyed it.

As a musician, I could definitely relate to the gong show moments, and the ridiculous amount of hope it takes to put yourself out there.

I watched the movie 3 times in a couple days, it just seemed to really have something to it.

It was funny, heartbreaking and inspiring, so when I heard that Anvil was actually due to play my town I quickly bought a ticket.

The Show was this Saturday and it was Awesome!

First, the movie played and from my seat in the side balcony I could see the members of Anvil periodically coming out and checking out the film.

After the movie they played a set to an adoring crowd.

I'd heard they just played a short set, but luckily that turned out not to be true.

I guess I'm not very good at reviewing show, but I'll just say that they played (almost) all the songs I wanted to hear, and the musicianship was amazing, Robb Reiner in particular blew me away. His drum solo was off the chain!

After the show the guys came out and signed everything that was shoved in front of them (including my DVD). I even got to see Lips almost lose it on a couple of super-annoying guys who kept asking him incredibly inane and pointless questions!

I got pictures with both Lips and Robb too, they were super nice and seemed genuinely grateful for their second chance.

If you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend it.

If you like metal, it's a no-brainer, but even if you don't you'll find something to relate to.

I guarantee it, see the movie, and go see the band if you are lucky enough to have the chance, you won't regret it!

Wow, I haven't posted in forever on here!

I guess Ive been busy, and anytime I tried to write a post, something would go wrong, like when I reviewed the entire KISS concert, only to accidentally delete everything I wrote.

Oh well, check out this video of records made out of chocolate!

Oh Crap…

The New York Times is reporting that Disney is buying Marvel Comics.

This really bothers me to a great extent.

Being a huge Spider-man fan, I'm obviously worried about cause this may have on the character.

I mean, there's always been cheesy merchandise, that doesn't bother me, I just hope Spidey doesn't become "Disnefied" in any way.

Oh well, I guess we'll see how it pans out, though for the record, I think this is going to be terrible.

Read the full story here.
