The Cool Ship Has a Music Lounge?!

I haven’t written about anything music related in a while, and I’ve been in a musical mood lately (not “musical” as in musicals but “musical” as in music, if that makes sense), so I thought I’d write something music oriented.

First off, I wanna talk about Queens of the Stone Age. Seriously, one of my favorite bands of all time. They are the quintessential rock band, no doubt about it. Each member oozes rock ‘n roll swagger and musical excellence with every note they play or lyric they sing. And their appearance on Austin City Limits is a prime example of that. If you haven’t seen in yet, you’re missing out. Take a gander and find out why they’re so amazing.

Are you hooked?

Yeah, you’re hooked. (If not, get out)

And if you’re digging them, check out Josh Homme’s (the frontman) other projects: Kyuss, The Desert Sessions, Eagles of Death Metal, and Them Crooked Vultures. Oh, and there’s this:

Next, I was trying to think of a top five list of mainstream bands that would make incredibly kick-ass wedding bands, but the my thought process in stuck on one band, Powerman 5000. How freaking sweet would that be?! You sit through the wedding, head to the reception, if you’re lucky there’s an open bar, the music kicks in, and BAM…PM5K starts rockin’ the stage! It would be the only time I would enjoy listening to the Chicken Dance.

Or at least, their cover of Devo’s “Whip It”

Finally, any music project Phil Anselmo is a part of is beyond badass and will definitely have my approval. His newest project is no exception. Philip Anselmo & the Illegals’ Walk Through Exits Only is a heavy metal masterpiece. Raw, brutal, and unabashedly blunt, it’s one of the best metal albums of 2013. I hope he plans to continue with this solo project because I foresee even greater things coming from it in the future. It feels like an invigoratingly new Anselmo. Not that his recent work with Down is lacking anything, it’s just a different vibe, a different energy.

I miss Pantera as much as the next metal head, but Dimebag is gone and it doesn’t look like Phil and Vinnie are ever gonna reconcile, so any new music that Phil makes is gonna have to fill that void. And he’s doing a damn fine job of it, a much better job than Vinnie Paul’s band, Hellyeah.

Randomness from Rob’s Random Mind: Chapter One

1. Ben Affleck as Batman

I’m still not a fan of him being Batman, but he is pretty damn funny. I’ll give him credit for taking all the crap he’s getting in stride. Taking it like a champ. But it comes with the territory, I guess.

Fluid Man, Coil Man, Multi-Man

2. The Impossibles

I’m probably one of four people that remember this cartoon, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be revived with a live action movie. A trio of rock and roll musicians who become superheroes when there’s danger…the story practically writes itself. Superhero movie are all the craze now, so this could be a huge success.

RALLY HO!

3. Josh Homme vs. Jay Z

Josh+Homme+joshuahomme

Take that, Jigga Man!

Apparently, Jay Z is a bit of a douchebag. At his Made In America Fest, he had his security search everyone that performed. Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age wasn’t a fan of that idea at all. Jay Z also wanted them to take pictures with the champagne that he gave them, another thing that struck a nerve with Homme. “And I thought that’s not a gift that is a marketing tool. So I destroyed it. Because I thought it was rude overall. And you shouldn’t frisk my guys, you should f–k off.” [source]

Job well done, Josh Homme.

4. Arrow Season 2

I’m pretty stoked for season two. Black Canary, more Deathstroke, and The Flash. Bring it on! Who knows what other heroes and villains will be introduced this season. There were a few references to Bludhaven, so maybe they’ll bring in Nightwing. Crossing my fingers for that one. Also hoping they find a way to tie the Arrow universe to the Man of Steel cinematic universe.

5. Supernatural Season 9

Just try to watch the new promo trailer and not get excited for the new season. No more angels?! Holy crap! What are the Winchesters gonna do without the assistance of Castiel. I mean, he’ll still be around but without any powers. All hell is gonna break loose! (No pun intended)

Plus, Death is back! Huzzah!

6. NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month is about a month and a half away. I’m definitely going to try my hardest to participate in it this year. I need to avoid procrastinating with it like I do every year. I need the motivation, something that’ll kick me in the butt and get me to write on a regular basis.

7. PUMPKIN FLAVORED EVERYTHING!

*drool*

*drool*

My favorite part of Fall, other than Halloween, is that pumpkin flavored food and drink is available in abundance. So much deliciousness for me to enjoy! There’s also Peppermint flavored items but those are more of a Winter/Christmas thing. More on that later. Recommendations: Edy’s Pumpkin Ice Cream, Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin rolls, Pumpkin pie, Pumpkin Cappuccino, and Pumpkin fudge. YUM!

 

 

 

The Princess Bride. Excellent film.

I’m getting married on the 28th of September, and I couldn’t be more excited. Just wanted to throw that out there. Love is a wonderful, wonderful thing, folks.

*happy face*
