The Return..............

Hell everyone, It was only 2 days but it felt way too long. I have 4 days off in a row from work and I just spent the last 2 being a lazy asshole and chilling with Darrylynn. Not a bad thing because I did get to watch a bunch of movies I was meaning to as well as rekindle my love for some old favorites, I'm just ready to go on a roll. I added some more blogs to the links down on the right. Down Underground, Only In It For The Music, Heinus Noise, Distort Truth Distort Minds, Thee Claw and last but certainly not least, the great Kill that Cat. And speaking of blogs, Cosmic Hearse has now been around for a whole year so if you don't regularly read it, now is your chance for a fresh start. Aesop posts everyday,barring a tour with one of his bands, and his selections are fucking wicked!!!!!
Anyway, now for the album I should have put up on Wednesday. "War and Wine" by Dukes of Nothing. The Dukes of Nothing are something of an all star band of a few great stoner/doom??? groups in England. You've got Doug Dalziel and Dean Berry from Iron Monkey, Stuart O'Hara from Acrimony, and Chris Turner from Orange Goblin.(who will make an appearance here soon enough) They have one album that I know of and here it is: a more pissed Motorhead???,definitely a good place to start. It reminds me a bit of the masterpiece "Coup De Grace" by the aforementioned Orange Goblin(stay tuned,it really is a hell of an album!!!!!)

War and Wine

Now, here's yesterday's post today......

I want to thank Will again for the Ahisma songs and for the bulletin he posted for me on Myspace. Ahisma has been downloaded more than anything else but Noothgrush and I've gotten a ton of email from kids I met in Eugene back in the day. All of the response was nice and I was very glad to hear from Shelley. Besides being a great mother of two wonderful kids, Shelley busted her ass and bent over backwards to do everything she could for the Fall Creek campaign. Whether she was in the forest or helping out everyone she could when they came back to town filthy and tired, she definitely was appreciated by many. I didn't really know her personally when I was there but I was around long enough to perceive her worth to the community. Everyone that I knew out in those trees spoke of her far beyond fondly.

Anyway, Shelley was very cool about sending mean old an Memento Mori album to post. I knew of Memento Mori from their split with Kylesa which has two great songs by them. I didn't really know much of them beyond that including the fact that they had the awesome Leila Abdul Rauf as a member. The Leila Abdul Rauf that plays in the sick Bay Area metal band Saros. I currently lack anything by Saros but as soon as I get it,I'll ask the band if I can put up a few songs off it for everyone to hear. Until then, enjoy this great album:

Thanks again Shelley, I hope you keep reading regularly.That would be great!!!!

And not to go overboard or anything, but I found this great movie in its' entirety yesterday on Youtube. You may have heard of it. It goes by the name Evil Dead 2. I think Bruce Campbell is the shit. I mean have you guys ever watched Bubba Ho-Tep. Click on the name for the trailer, just do it!!!! I love the whole Evil Dead trilogy and if I can find the other 2 I will post them eventually. I'm sure most of you have seen these but by chance you haven't sit down and enjoy!!

Hi Troy,

Thanks for the sweet words. I'm blushin'! Having a bit of technical difficulty trying to figure out how to get the music I'm downloading onto my iTunes. Do I have to "unzip" them first? And if so, how do i do that?
