    New Logo - Your Thoughts?!

    Ok, here's my idea for a more "metal" version of the logo. I kept it fairly clean, though I could see it with more spikes or weathering, too. I have a plain version and one with a metal texture. Once the letter forms are in place, it's easy to apply any kind of texture, lighting, or outline to the logo. What do you think? Worth working on?

    Went to an award ceremony honoring all the students in our school district who scored distinguished on state testing in @ least one of three subjects Math, Reading & Science. My son James, he's in 4th grade, received the highest honor for getting distinguished in all three. Was a very proud moment.

    Wow, had a great couple of days with my GF, and we've decided to get engaged soon. We know right now we shouldn't get engaged yet because we've haven't been together long enough, so we aren't officially engaged yet. But, we're pretty sure, and we've bought the rings. This is just completely amazing and unreal feeling. I feel like I've found who I've been looking for my whole life. I've never felt like this. For so many years I was just so full of anger and hatred and bitterness, and I hated myself and thought I was worthless. It's actually confusing to try to process these emotions I'm just so not used to. When I left her place this morning, sitting in my car while it was warming up, I burst into tears, just so overwhelmed by emotion. It's just so hard to believe that someone loves me and I'm worth something. I can't wait to put that ring an her finger.

    Here's some of the goofy shit I was wearing last night. I realized that I'd accidentally dressed up like my persona from Ash. Made me chuckle this morning when I saw the picture. Leather pants and high boots should be inferred.

    Not metal related, but the local weekly paper in the city where we're having a group painting show chose one of my pieces to print alongside the article. It hit me that for all the times I've seen my obscure little album and t-shirt illustrations floating around the internet, this is the first time I can recall seeing one of my personal paintings in print. I'm a little bit more excited than I should be, maybe.

    So I may or may not be performing at an exhibition run by the place I do my guitar lessons. I guess you'd call it a showcase. Myself and some other students will be there. Should be fun though I don't know what I'll play. Maybe 'Crown Of Sympathy' by My Dying Bride.

    Motorcycle fest 2 months ago. This was the first day, at the very beginning, thus so few people were present. Once the mosh pits started forming I basically haven't left any of them. That's why for the following three days I had muscle-ache (?) in my arms and legs. Great bands, great time. PS: I'm the guy in the camo shirt btw.

    A metal hearted man... Mr. Wolf Hoffman, ACCEPT lead guitarist and musical mastermind. SK: "Hi Wolf, I wanna thank you for all the incredible riffs, solos and melodies that you've created. Your music has been a part of my life for 15 years and I'm deeply grateful". WH: "Thank you, I appreciate". SK: "You're from Solingen (German city), right?" WH: "Yes indeed". SK: "Now let me tell you this. Solingen is very famous for its blades, but the sharpest thing that ever came out of Solingen is YOUR MUSIC. Sharp as steel!". WH: "Ahah thank you, but that is not true. NOTHING IS SHARPER THAN THE BLADES OF SOLINGEN". He's a great guy! Very polite and humble. He smiled all the time and took time to sign and take pics with every metalhead around. He asked me what my name was and shook my hands twice. Being the cheesy defender of the faith I have always been and always will be, I was starstruck and in awe of him. I mean, he is the man that threw Beethoven's "FUR ELISE" in the middle of the "Metal Heart" solo. THE STUFF OF LEGEND.

    I finally got started on a piece for a playing-card-themed art show a friend is putting together this fall. I'm not used to working this small, and I have to say it was a lot of fun, I was able to get a lot done in a fairly short amount of time. The top half wound up accidentally bearing a strong resemblance to my brother, so I made the bottom half a self portrait.

    Arrived home yesterday from a busy week to an email from my Director saying he had asked the board to authorise a further pay rise to me (the second in 6 months). I have that awkward British thing around receiving praise and rewards that makes me unsure of how to react or what to say. P.S I think this means I am promoted to Advanced Practitioner of Virgin Slaying

    Happy I busted out the Satyricon CDs, inspired by Macabre's recent exploration. The Shadowthrone is still my favorite, but I hadn't really listened to DMT or ND in at least a couple years. Their riffy approach and almost Viking-metal melodic sensibility still mark out their early albums as some of my favorite stuff from the scene. I'm celebrating my ten-thousandth post here by drinking a couple of beers and listening to My Dying Bride - As The Flower Withers. This place has been important to me over the past couple of years. It's been a pleasure getting to know you guys and gals, and I've not only discovered new music, but gotten back into some old favorites because of our conversations. Cheers to all my friends here.

    My boss phoned me earlier and informed me I have been awarded a pay rise. A year of hard work has paid off (literally).

    Black metal is the snow-covered forest at sunset; the full moon glimpsed through jagged trees; the candle that flickers in ghost winds; the indelible emptiness of the lonely human soul that cries out to empty skies.

    Just got back from a nice vacation in Sweden. I really miss it so much, and my heart is aching to be back there. The cold kicked my fuckin' ass though. I celebrated Lucia with an amazing family that welcomed me as one of their own and even performed a Luciatåg in costume, and sang for me to give me a taste of the culture and they made a Julbord for me (christmas table feast) and we all decorated the tree together. It was magical and wonderful and waugh! I miss it / them so much. They went all out to give me a really traditional Swedish Lucia and I'm feeling so special and loved. I also got to enjoy an epic viking feast at Aifur in Stockholm which was just... fucking amazing. Everyone is seated on longhall tables and benches covered in plush reindeer furs. Viking weaponry and art all over the walls, a longship suspended from the ceiling, everything lit by candles and lanterns, food eaten with simple iron smithed utensils and served on slabs of wood, live entertainers on drums, hurdy gurdy, etc. The mead flowed, the fucking food... holy shit it was phenomenal... the mead was great too. God damnit you guys. Other highlights of the trip was partying at these three Icelandic brothers' house, ton of people there, all cool as fuck and Swedes know how to party (once they're drinking and there are no more awkward silences that Swedes are so well known for). Also had an epic tabletop gaming night with like 8 of my friends and of course the usual walking / exploring / sightseeing / shopping / dining. And fika. So, so, so, so much fika. BLECH. I don't know how they can eat cake every day, it's just too much. But I definitely appreciated the coffee and I was polite enough to taste the various cakes, one of which is this magical fucking unicorn of a cake called Budapeststubbe and I had two bites and pretty much died. That fucking good. I left my heart back in frost-covered, sparkly, icy Sweden. I miss it so much already.
