Movies, music, cartoons, comics, food, and television. That's just the kind of stuff that keeps me up at night.

 

I’m high right now. (Excuse the Gonzo writing)

So it’s July 4th. I don’t want to start a big political debate. I think America has done a couple of noble things, and at one time was a really great country. I think we still have the capability to be great. We still can, we just need to work together, stop with all the bullshit.

I’m going down my dashboard and I see a lot of cute chubby girls. It’s crazy. I don’t think I could ever go a day on tumblr and not see at least one gorgeous big girl. It’s impossible. I follow a lot of girls because, I dunno, I like the view, but recently, fuck there are a lot of girls who want to get fucked.

As I’m writing this I’m listening to the fucking Smiths. Ugh, why the fuck do I do this to myself? I’m fucking listening to This Night Has Opened My Eyes and damn, Morrissey knows how to get me depressed. I like the feeling though, I can enjoy depression. It’s spiritual, it’s all about overcoming your depression, you find the problem and you handle it the best way you know how. But fuck, if I keep this up I’m going to go crazy.

I got my permit to drive recently and I just got my car. It’s a green Toyota Camry, 1997. It’s awesome, I need an aux cable and I can hook my iPod to my radio. I want to hear my music when I’m driving. I’m thinking about driving to San Diego one night, just stare at the ocean for a while, maybe watch a sunrise. Then drive back. All while listening to the Smiths! That’d be fucking hilarious.

Alright, here’s what I don’t get about Samhain, why do people fucking overlook it? Almost every Danzig fan I meet says that they like Danzig and the Misfits, but there are some who don’t like Samhain at fucking all. Samhain is fucking awesome. The first Samhain album should be listened to, it should be fucking mandatory. If you want to graduate from High School you should have to listen to Initium from beginning to end and write about how you felt about it. You don’t even have to like it, you just got to give it a listen.

There’s also a really bad ass version of Bloodfeast done by Samhain, I think everyone should check that out and see which version they like more. I like the Samhain version more because it sounds like it was done on the spot, the production value isn’t that good, but it gives it a sound of doom, like if it was recorded in a dungeon or basement. Somewhere where you’d probably be murdered.

I like how on youtube they have entire albums that you can listen to. Classic albums, it’s fucking awesome. I’m listening to the first Ramones album and it just reminds me of why I love them so much. Rock N Roll High School is the shit. One of the best movies ever, I can watch that movie over and over again. And it has the fucking Ramones in it. Innovators, trashing a High School, it’s amazing.

Okay, my high is starting to fade away, I’m going to finish this, check my tumblr for more cute gals. The ones with red hair and a cute smile… and big butts and thighs… and a brain. 

I must’ve seen this movie three times last night. It’s so fucking awesome.

It’s your favorite punk band! The Avengers!
Here’s a collaborative piece Maris Wicks, Liz Prince and I were commissioned to do at a recent mini-convention held by our local shop, Comicazi. Our initial thought was to draw the Avengers as a rock group, but then Liz took it a step beyond, and suggested we reference this famous Ramones album cover. We totes agreed.
**I should note who did what here — Liz drew Cap and inked Ant Man.  Maris drew Thor and pencilled Ant Man and the background. I drew Iron  Man and rendered and inked the background. True.

but not the 70’s punk band the Avengers…

My Review of Live at Max’s Kansas City (1978)

You know, it sucks discovering bands too late. You suddenly find yourself falling in love with a band that you may never have the chance to see live. This is one of the problems that I met once I started listening to The Misfits religiously. I’d listen to their albums and only wonder what it would be like to be in the pit screaming the words to the songs at Danzig. I’d probably get knocked out in the pit, but that’s just some of the stuff you have to deal with when you see someone play.

Now, if I wanted to I could easily see Jerry Only’s Misfits live. However I really don’t want to see them live. From what I’ve heard on YouTube it just sounds like a silly mess. Plus as a hardcore fan of the Danzig-era I don’t want to see his songs butchered in front of me.

I’ve listened to some of the Misfits’ live stuff before, the Evilive album was fun to hear, but was so damn short that I felt like I was being jipped. (Doesn’t matter that I downloaded the album…) Still, listening to the Misfits live were almost a totally different experience than listening to their studio albums. Things were faster and more aggressive, if at times a bit too hectic. It was what I always thought The Misfits would sound like if I heard them play.

When I finally heard snippets of their bootleg album ‘Live at Max’s Kansas City’ I knew I had to get the whole album as soon as possible. Not only was the album longer in duration, but it was also much better in quality than I thought it would be. This in part is due to the fact that the album has been remastered.

I don’t know how old school punk fans feel about this, but I could understand if they were mad at the album being remastered. Keep in mind that I have not heard the original copy of ‘Live at Max’s Kansas City’, so I don’t know if I should be appalled or thankful for the remastering of the album. I have read that Bobby Steele’s guitar only had two strings left by the time they made it to Attitude, so maybe this is a good thing?

I don’t really have any problems with the album. It does a good job of delivering everything I wanted except for the fact that Glenn doesn’t really talk in-between the songs. I know most people don’t give a shit about that, but I really wanted to see how Glenn acted when he was on stage. I mean, I can’t be the only one who wanted to hear more from the band. They’re not as quick as The Ramones were when they played a live show, but nothing really goes on between the shows.

If you’re a fan of Danzig-era Misfits then you should do yourself a favor and get a hold of this bootleg as soon as possible. You won’t regret it.

This is the best album cover I could find, deal with it.
