I would have written something… but…


This happened…

The band is “Die Antwoord”, a band from South Africa.  This is not the full video for “Fatty Boom Boom”, which tells the story of Lady Gaga visiting South Africa and ‘discovering’ them, which turns out poorly for her.

My opinion?  This band is spastic… spastic in a completely awesome way.  Check out some of their other songs as well.  Here’s another one for you:

Strangely, I was looking up images of Cthulhu when I came across this video, and I think Cthulhu would approve.

Puscifer with Milla Jovovich…


I love the sound of this song.  Puscifer is a side project by Maynard James Keenan, and the voice of Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) adds something… dirty to it.  Dirty in that visceral way that speaks to the darker part of me that whispers seductively from the dark.

Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Right in front of your eyes, it’s time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Now answer the lies it’s time to get up
Our turn to decide, who lives and who dies
Whatcha’ know about the ways on the underside?

Rage against the Machine-Sleep now in the fire


I love this video.  I was 16 when this happened, and completely unaware of the politics or anything.  I wish I had been there.  20 years later, and nothing has really changed, except for the fact that the “men in blue” would probably show up in full swat gear in militarized vehicles with M4s or AR-15s.

Tom Morello-care to do a repeat performance?

Violent Femmes


Violent Femmes is one of those bands that make me want to get up and dance around like a boneless 13 year old girl.  The songs are fun and generally have cool messages if you think about them.  Here’s one of my favorites from them:  “Blister in the Sun”.

Nine Inch Nails new album comes out 9.3.13


Nine Inch Nails is one of my favorite bands of all time.  The music has evolved with Trnet Reznor, coming straight from his views and experiences of life and showing his evolution from youth to angry adult to reflective adult and so on.  I find that I can identify in some way with almost every NIN song ever made, and I bring you now the video for the “teaser” from the new album “Hesitation Marks”.  It’s called “Came Back Haunted” and reminds me of a certain quote.

“If you gaze long into the Abyss, the Abyss will gaze back into you” -Friedrich Nietzsche
