Bloodrayne is near

The inimitable Dr. Boll has a treat for us this weekend. His latest masterwork, Bloodrayne. Some lucky souls have been allowed to see the finished work. Unfortunately they all seem to be haters. But is that really so hard to understand? Most humans cannot comprehend the UB genius level. We hate that which we cannot understand. That said, these sots will have their eyes stabbed out as penance for their ignorance shortly.

But not us. We are ready for the weekend. We are going to prepare by fasting on nothing but blood until show time. This should get us into the mood. In fact, we're already in line at the Burbank 16. It's not very long yet, but if you wait until Friday to get your tickets you'll be very envious of our position in line.

The master calls us!

I think you should drink more water.

I read somewhere that dehydration causes bad things to happen like fainting, dizziness, poor judgement and accepting life-threatening dares.

Smartwater is pretty tasty.

Salt is good for you too.
You know when you were younger and your mom would ask you if so and so jumped of a cliff would you? Well if Uwe Boll was going to jump off a cliff I would. I would do anything that man tells me to do, follow him right into the gates of hell. Because you KNOW that is wear he is heading. MAKE THE BAD MAN STOP!!!!!

I mean, yeas masster.

If I could be in two places at once I would force both of you to bow down in supplication at the first showing Friday. But I currently can't, so the one of you closest to me on Friday will get the honor.

The unlucky one will be asked to flog themselves in penance later.

Some things are better left uncovered

Sometimes you hear a cover and go to yourself, "hey, that's doper than Sam Perkins at Woodstock." Other times, you wonder (possibly aloud) "that no talent hack! They couldn't even carry [inset original artist here]'s guitar case!" [Ed. note: You should have seen what the author originally wanted to use as the carried item. Believe us, it wasn't a guitar case.]

Today was an example of the second. Some fool whose name I cannot even spare the mental RAM for, has covered "High and Dry" by the esteemed Radiohead. This is up there. With the worst covers of all time. Some songs just don't ever need to be covered. Like this one. And like "It's My Life" by Talk Talk. But No Doubt did a decent job with that one, although they crapped all over it with that video.

This one today was bad. When you do a cover, you're supposed to bring something to it. Maybe your sound is similar to the original artist's, and you b…

A New Game

cpMaia likes to come up with fun games you can play with your friends. Her latest inspired me to come up with one of my own.

Everyone who plays has to come up with three (3) songs they wish they had written. I hope those of you who aren't musicians play along as well.

I'll start:

Paranoid Android, Radiohead
Divine roller-coaster vocals along with some out-of-this-world guitar work.
With Or Without You, U2
Simplicity and restraint elevate what could have been a late-80's power ballad to classic status.
Comfortably Numb, Pink Floyd
2 of the greatest guitar solos of all time.

Rest in peace, Dimebag

Some moron shot Dimebag Darrell Abbott yesterday at a show, along with 3 other people. The shooter was subsequently taken down by a policeman.

Dimebag Darrell wasn't my favorite guitar player, but I recognized him as a deserving legend among axemen. When I was really learning my chops as a player in the 90s, Dimebag was one of those darlings of the guitar press, rightly lauded for his skill and contributions to the world of metal. I confess to owning only one of his CDs, Pantera's Far Beyond Driven and I haven't played it in a long time. I will have to bust it out again. He was an innovator. We'll all miss him.
