What happens when a website says "not available for viewing in your country" ? maybe illegal downloading increases ?

Hangover cures

FIRST THING - have another damn drink when you wake up if that is possible!

tomato juice, or V8 vegetable juice

grapefruit juice (to replenish your electrolytes)

colloidal silver ( put some drops in a glass of water)


was too bummed out yesterday. Many were "excited" as Christmas was nearly here.

Being a long hair wearing a denim jacket brings about different feelings, especially in others.
1 - bus drivers sometimes drive by without stopping to pick you up, [they must have got tips from the assholes that work for the TTC ].
2-but some bus drivers or even vehicle drivers passing by, I see will look happy. Could be the Led Zep sew-on patch.
I will guess they are also glad because I refuse to be an effeminate looking metrosexual or one of these emo rock queers that have plagued us for like 15 years.
3 - people leave me alone, but some gawk. "WHO is this guy??"
4- underage chicks trying to look cool, but their smoking cigarettes is a turnoff for me. Plus I am old enough to know how I would feel if I was their father, and that they should know better.
5 - I have a headache. now go look at another site

 when checking my mailbox, still see my fucking Skullfist records have not showed up. Will have to check if VISA got my money back from PayPal as I made a complaint a couple weeks ago nothing has showed up!

woman yells at an author with a tell-all book on a KISS member

One of the first "heavy" bands, if not the VERY first hard rock band I ever liked was KISS.
Their 1970s albums, and exposure in Tiger Beat and 16 and all the other teen pop/rock magazines back in the day were a good escape besides comic books.

The further you get into discovering a band you really dig, you end up in the zone of books and magazines - you learn the band's and musicians' history - musical and private and the people that surround them.
Some of the biographical info you will learn you won't know if it is true or false, or speculating gossip.

Now with the internet, you can even HEAR.
Months ago I read  http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ace-frehley-announces-lineup-of-his-touring-band/ , and in the section below it, one posted the comment
"Rachael Gordon (Better than the Tube Bar, Jerky Boys, Alec Baldwin phone calls) on YouTube"

A googlesearch later and found it.

Years ago, when I was reading about another one of my fave bands that was on the Casablanca Records label, ANGEL ,  and

Gordon G.G. Gebert,  was on the keyboards for their reunion instead of Greg Giuffria.

The more I started for info on Gebert, there were nasty comments on music forums that he ripped off Ace Frehley and his fanclub members.
I have no idea if that is true.

But here is a phonecall from somebidy that is in the camp that doesn't trust him.

ORDER FROM CHAOS "FROZEN IN STEEL" 12 x LP Boxset - release date - Nov.23, 2014


I remember reading something about these guys in the late 1990s or early 2000s in a fanzine interview. If they were in any zines in the 1980s, I just don't remember.

It was only in the past year or two, I started wondering more about them, especially after guitarist Nonoy of PAGANFIRE said they were one of his fave bands.
Downloaded some demos, (you can join the ex-LOCKJAW guys/current Strappado blog members' forum at http://heavymetalrarities.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=14738 and download if curious).

Pretty good raging metal.
I wish I heard these guys sooner, but I blame the underground metal scene overall for this.
The reason is explained in a good interview here -

Chuck Keller:  .............
But by the same token, one of the reason why no one really cared, because well, back in the day, no one did care about OST. Nobody cared about us. We didn’t do blast beats, we weren’t extreme in that archetypal sense, we were just a good solid… we thought we were descending from Celtic Frost, Voivod, and Sodom, we thought we were the next generation of that. And obviously, the greater scene had moved on from that, and we sort of got buried, so to speak.

That's right!
In the late 1980s/early 1990s up until now in 2014,  many fans/bands started the trend of wanting to have fast blasting double-bass drums and sounding like a jackhammer ALL the time. Blah, it is NOT good all the time in my opinion, and glad that OFC were never part of the trend and kept their integrity.

if you have plenty of cash, approx. around $200 or $300, then stay online before November 23rd and wait and refresh the page a lot, click immediately to buy
and be sure of WHICH SHIPPING OPTION you want.

NWN Releases 

There will be TWO versions of vinyl -
the Diehard Version (including extra recordings).

The  Digital version - which is the Regular vinyl recordings on CD's, also will have  a DVD.

The DVD will NOT be included with the DieHard vinyl.

I bet this will sell out instantly, and then the typical outrageous prices on eBay will follow from the price gougers....

George Orwell's 1984 (1954) BBC Staring Peter Cushing

From wikipedia:

Nineteen Eighty-Four is a British television adaptation of the novel of the same name by George Orwell, originally broadcast on BBC Television in December 1954. The production proved to be hugely controversial, with questions asked in Parliament and many viewer complaints over its supposed subversive nature and horrific content. In a 2000 poll of industry experts conducted by the British Film Institute to determine the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four was ranked in seventy-third position.

Look at what I have been working on for the past few weeks

SLAUGHTER backpatch on my denim jacket

metal jacket

You know what I learned?
I wish I never gave away my mother's sewing machine.
Hand sewing kind of sucks...at first...but better to keep busy when listening to tunes than sit around and drink (or think about drinking).

Tim Mekalick
Ryan O'Leary
Jolene Tempest


I haven't bought any new music for a very long time, (besides that WICKED STEP vinyl) since I have a lot yet to hear (physical products - tapes, vinyl, cd's, or downloads I have grabbed).

THIS band though, BULLETBELT, made me spend a little last month and ordered their new album (their third), and patches. Personally, I think CD's and LP's and tapes SHOULD BE as cheap as possible because ONLY if a band is any good, then real fans will buy more merchandise/support them further.

Yes, sort of rare for me to get very excited like a teenager again for any new metal.
I ENJOY metal a lot, but not too much anymore makes me turn my head and go "WHOAH ! TOTALLY AWESOME!" because of the overload of music released these days.

I already had Bulletbelt's first 2 CD's, "The Black Army Stands EP" (2010), and "Down In The Cold Of The Grave" (Full-length album) (2012), and was impressed a LOT,
but the new songs are even MORE killer.

At first, didn't even know the cruel vocals were now by a chick (Jolene).
She is consistently, and convincingly, scary sounding (and if you see her photos, it fits.
.....You have to look closely).
The band lineup has changed, and sounds like they have sharpened their focus.
Every song is full of catchy rhythms and riffs.
This is ripping blackened thrash metal, or thrashy black metal, whatever you want to label it.
Reminds me of black metal bands from the 1990s, just can't place it right now.
Listen to it on YouTube or bandcamp.
I didn't include a free upload.
Easy enough to find if you know how to googlesearch.

If Rock at high volume was needed, Wicked Step was always there to provide. ”

I ALWAYS buy TMU releases because they have reasonable prices (compared to OTHER record labels also with "limited" quantities), and are excellent quality in packaging (and shipping)!

Jason Newsted Quits Social Networks, like Facebook

maybe more people seeing all of these sites are kind of like cancer?

By Axl Rosenberg
..."has posted the following message to his official website (I’m posting a screen cap because, as usual, the incredible amount of traffic the site receives makes its load time very, VERY long):

 This is so forward-thinking of Newsted I can’t even wrap my head around it. Although the dinosaurs who run the record business have been in denial about it for a long, long time, social networking services like the ones Newsted cites are totally over. The kids don’t care anymore — they wanna go outside, interact face-to-face, discover new music via MTV and various magazines, and buy physical media in stores. Everyone needs to STOP trying to push Instagram and Twitter already. They had their fifteen minutes. Everyone is over it."

Don't let Canada Post end door to door delivery

Petition Update

Over 152,100 supporters now

Susan Dixon
Sep 7, 2014 — Hi all, just wanted to let you know that we now have over 152,100 supporters and still growing. I am looking into a correctly formatted petition with the stipulated correct wording for the House of Commons as they are being extremely picky. I will update as necessary. I have now created a facebook page at www.facebook.com/stopcanadapost. This is where I will post a link to the correct formatted paper petition once I have it corrected. Please be patient but things are moving once again.

Thanks to all of you for your incredible efforts in supporting this cause and keep up the good work. I, for one, will keep this fight on until the end.


Don't let Canada Post end door to door delivery

    1. Susan Dixon
    2. Petition by
      Cambridge, Canada
I wonder, has anyone at Canada Post ever tried to to push a stroller or a wheelchair or a walker through the snow? I don't think they realize the impact of ending door-to-door mail delivery when it comes to the parents of young children, to the disabled, and to the elderly, especially in winter.  
Millions of Canadians were surprised and angry to learn they may have to travel kilometers to get their mail. I am the mother of two young boys. My youngest has cerebral palsy and uses a walker or wheelchair to get around. For me, Canada Post’s decision would mean having to bundle them up and struggle through the snow with a wheelchair just to get our mail.  And I am just one of thousands of Canadians who must already overcome mobility challenges on a daily basis.
On top of that, 8000 employees are going to lose their jobs because of this decision! And, we’re hearing that these new “superboxes” might not be very safe. My grandfather, god rest his soul, was a WW2 veteran and became a mailman. They take their work very seriously otherwise they would not brave the weather. My current mail carrier is also proud of the service she provides for the community. Why change something that is working well for communities across Canada?
This has to be stopped. A lot of people need home delivery because of their circumstances. Please sign the petition and share this with as many people as you can. The more people we get, the more solid the chances will be that Canada post and the government hear our voices!!

Deepak Chopra, President and CEO, Canada post
Douglas Jones, Senior VP, Delivery and Customer Experience, Canada Post
Stephen Edmondson, Vice President, Customer Relations, Canada Post
Jo-Anne Polak, Vice President, Communications and Public Affairs, Canada Post
Lisa Raitt, Minister or Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, Government of Canada
Please reconsider the plan to end door-to-door delivery, and think about how all Canadians would be affected.

Why does CanadaPost want to put itself out of business?

with more and more people using email and messaging via social media sites,
and there are many other delivery companies out there for packages (sure, for now, more expensive, BUT it is guaranteed to make it directly to the address and within the time limit you pay for),
it would NOT be a problem for the national, provincial and municipal governments to create a similar system again for the monthly cheques and bills that are sent every month.
Financial institutions keep urging customers to switch to digital records only instead of paper, but if another postal system was created, I am sure they would use it if it underpriced the postage costs.

Yes, I am dreaming.

Governemnt unions would FUCK IT UP.

nevermind ....
