    What's on your mind?

    It's raining cat and dogs, and the basement if filling up with water. I deployed my signature garden hose siphon though, so don't cry for me metal forum, I'll be fine. (I know how to set one up, but maybe can't spell it, siphon seems correct.)

    What's the REAL deal?

    What appeals to me will be Heavy, Epic and therefore Elating.

    How do you ...

    I've watched a little Banger TV and been turned on to some fabulous things there recently.

    What's on your mind?

    Hello all, and happy new year. All is well in Maine, though it's cold. I'm glad to see the forum is active, and continues to work for the glory of heavy metal. It's been a long time, I feel like I ought to have brought a present. Let me see what I can find. This is for Chinese new year, so it's not even late, it's a few weeks early. Year of the pig, how about that? pretty exciting!

    What are you playing/singing?

    I'm playing top 40 hits in a cover band I joined a couple months ago. Figure it out by the royal bloods, and High Horse by Kasey Musgrave are on my to do list tonight.

    Pagan Altar

    I love this band. Does anyone on the forum listen to them. Please do, it is deeply heavy and very beautiful. The vocalist died this year. His name was Terry Jones. They have an as yet unreleased album, and I long to hear it.

    What are you drinking?

    I just invented a drink which is basically equal parts Campari, brandy, white wine, tonic water and then a little simple syrup with a lemon twist. No too shabby.

    Well, I think it starts with "The" and between the "A" and the "N" there is an S. so "The Alcasodin" might be close, but no such band appears in the pages of the book of heavy metal. My wife asks if it says "Metallica", but I'm pretty sure that is not it.

    New Purchases/Acquisitions

    I got an Anvil T-shirt... I'm thinking about cutting off the sleeves.

    What's on your mind?

    I've got an extra ticket for Anvil at Gino's in Portland Maine U.S.A.. Any Takers? That's tonight, May 5th, and I'm not charging for it.

    That album spent all of this past winter in CD player in my mini-van just playing over and over again, especially after I severely compromised the antenna shoveling snow off the hood and was reduced to the local top 40 station and the lower quality classic rock station on the radio. "Catch the rainbow" is my favorite cut, also "Snake Charmer" really hold up to constant rotation. The one song about _If you don't like rock and roll, well it's too late now_ is not my favorite. It's a sort album by today's standards. "Self Portrait" also fantastic with constant listening. "Man on the Silver mountain" and "Temple of the Kind" were my favorites until about the hundredth listen. I can't say why I listen to an album over and over and over, but I've always been like that, even as a kid. I don't think it's actually healthy to ingrain the same recording in your head like that. It's better for the mind to hear new music all the time, and when I get the sensation where you start to hear the next song before it starts I feel like I'm doing a disservice to my mind.

    Here is a little visual content for this page. I just watched "Last Days Here" which had been on my watch list a long time, can't say why I was so slow to the draw. Anyway, I totally recommend it, and wonder how Bobby is doing now. I brief check in with Wikipedia suggests not all that well. So maybe the guy is not the most solid citizen rocker in rocker history, he still inspires me to wear more flamboyant silk shirts than I do, and also more silver jewelry than I do. How much silk and jewelry do I wear now... well, a little but not near enough. Thanks for asking.

    Judas Priest "Firepower"

    I've been enjoying it a lot, and it totally reinvigorated my interest in Priest all together. I'd never heard some of their earliest albums, and was psyched on the band for a few days in a row. This cover is pretty badassed, which your review failed to mention, thought your review was nice to read otherwise. I enjoyed a Banger TV run down of their catalog with that Martin P. guy, a minuet while I look up his name... Martin Popoff. Also enjoyed a mediocre documentary on the band, and would like to see a good one if anyone knows of one.

    What's on your mind?

    Hey Parker, nice to see you posting, hope you'r well and going to hang out on the forum. I have been off for a long time myself for no particular reason.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Since Judas Priest released Firepower I've been listening to lots of Priest since I was so far behind. That was after a long NWOBHM phase. In the last few days I've been listnening to thrash mostly, especially Over Kill. Never was big into thrash, but I've been listening to Grinding Wheel on CD in my car for a month now and love it, it hasn't left to CD Player once since I stuck it in there. No other decent CD in that particular car, but still.

    Hey folks, hope you are all well. Nice to see several familiar posters right on the top page. All is well with me, and I'm enjoying the tail end of a Maine winter.

    I'm quitting caffeine

    a few dozen of my own hogs down on the farm over the years on their way to what we call "freezer camp".

    I'm quitting caffeine

    Regardless of what I tend to eat I wish i could get my self to eat about half as much of it as I tend to. I like coffee but don't imagine it does me much good, especially that second cup. I feel like a chump when I get a headache on a day when I've had none (with enough water I can avoid that, but it takes an effort). Meat is definitely murder, I've shot enough pigs in the head to know that for sure. Veganism is square one if you want to dial back on the monstrosity factor of being human (actually... getting off of fossil fuel is a bigger deal than that but who is planning to do that?), but I'm relatively comfortable with my monstrous meat consumption. One final thought... I'd hate to be in the position of controlling the food habits of a recalcitrant MoFo like BAN when I can't even get myself eating as I'd like to.

    What's on your mind?

    My mom, who is getting a little quirky in her old age has been marking her wooden counter with a grease pencil at noon every day all week. She's no Tycho Brahe or anything, but she is making her mark.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Kadavar on my wife's Spotify and she is pissed I've been signed on to her account all day while not even here most of the time so she can't be listening to it at work.

    What's so good about EMG pickups?

    Hey, not here to answer the question, just to announce that I just purchased a second bass on Saturday, and it has EMG pickups and everyone who has noticed them has been psyched for me.

    I drank beer and ate peanut m&ms tonight. what the fuck was I thinking?

    What's on your mind?

    I did my best to pick a weird one, but maybe it's time for a change.
