I have been greatly enjoying the album Purity by Hate Forest this winter. I highly recommend it for anyone that is a fan of NSBM. If you have ever listened to Drudkh this is an early side project of that band. Hells Headbangers just got in new copies of this and a couple of the other LPs. I would as a general rule avoid the albums that are nothing but ambient sounds because those are just generally kind of boring.
Here is a really cool recording by a punk band called Boy In Love. Really been digging this lately. Thanks to my friend Evan for turning me on to this shit.
TWISTED METAL 2 was a great video game. It had such a natural feel to it. Here is a video that will not only describe the plot but probably go way longer than you will want to be awake.
When I first heard Carly Rae Jepson I figured she was 16 or so, then I read that she is my age (26.) Great song, also LOLZ at the credit report dot com reference.
WCW Nitro Grill Advert - WCW Magazine #56 [December 1999]
Alright, readers…surely there is someone out there who has actually eaten at the WCW Nitro Grill and is just waiting to tell their story. I (along with everybody else) am dying to hear about what this place was like since my family were jerks and never took a vacation out to Las Vegas.
Feel free to submit a story or respond in the comments — anyone?
I actually convinced my parents to have my 12th birthday dinner there. The layout was kind of odd. It was a basic restaraunt, but they had a wrestling ring with tables in it in the middle of the room. We ate in the ring, right next to a turnbuckle. I remember the place was nearly empty, but I thought it was the coolest thing. They had these effects going during most of the meal (kind of like entrance ramp lighting effects) and I remember they were showing a replay of Halloween Havoc on the big screen. The food was good, kind of reminded me of Planet Hollywood, but the gift shop was what stood out for me. We got these WCW autograph playing cards and a t-shirt. The restaraunt was gone when we came back the next year.
Are you a pro wrestling fan? Me too. Are you tired of the way Vince McMahon runs shop? Then it is time to man up and run your own federation. Here you go. Who do you think deserves to be champ these days? The first thing I did was unify the WWE heavy weight belt and make Charlie Haas the poster boy. He has had the belt for 2 years now.
