New Year's Eve Parties

Here's the deal, I'm kinda sick of NYE parties. Most of them are just a bunch of over-priced bridge and tunnel magnets. So this year I'm staying in Brooklyn. I'll hit a few house parties and then head over to the MyOpenBar party in Greenpoint with Yeasayer! Plus you get vodka and beer all night for a measly $15. On the off chance I head into the city then the only party you'll see me at is the Rated-X/Trash NYE party.

Back In NYC

After a few days in Jersey I'm back. I've been meaning to post a review and photo's from last week's insanely awesome Apes & Androids show but I haven't had the chance. Anyway, get anything good for Christmas/Hannukah? I got a classical guitar and a heavy bag (need to get my shit kicking skills back up...just in case). I plan on getting back into old form for 2008. I used to shoot for 3 posts/day but now I'm just going for 1/day. Maybe if I get some help *hint hint* I can get it up to 3/day. You might not hear from me the next couple days but I'll at least get up that review and a NYE post.

Valient Thorr & The Sword 12/6

This is long overdo and therefore I'm not even going to try and give a detailed recap. Here's what you need to know about this show: Black Cobra opened and while I didn't love the music the drummer was amazing. The riffs varied from sludgy to thrash and was good at times. They even managed to sound a bit like Sepultura at times, minus the vocals.

Next up came the mighty Valient Thorr. The reason I came to this show was to see VT, not The Sword like everyone else. To put it simply Valient Thorr is an amazing live band. Decked out in jean vests and each sporting a heavy beard they come off like a Viking biker gang. The music is intense and the band is too. But it's clear they're just having fun up there and everything is done tongue-in-cheek. The set was fantastic and I suggest you get off of your ass next time they're in town and check them out live.

Next up it was The Sword, to be honest I never really got why people were into this band so much. They remind me of Wolfmother or one of those other Deep Purple wannabe bands that everyone is into these days.

The Sword also attracts a very interesting crowd. There were very few metal heads, a few scattered hipsters, but mostly it was douchebags from North Jersey and LI. They were literally bumping chests and high fiving each other the whole time. They were everywhere and they were trying to be tough. It was a DB pit, you know what I mean? A bunch of big dudes who aren't familiar with heavy shows so they think they have to mosh, except they don't know what that means so they just run into each other like retards.

Anyway, let's get back to The Sword...they're boring. Plain and simple. I lasted about 3 or 4 songs and then I went home. I just don't get why people dig such a boring band. Valient Thorr blew them off the stage in my oh so humble opinion.

Best And Worst Headline Ever

The NY Post has out done themselves with this one. It's both highly offensive and incredibly funny. I'm torn, I really don't know what to think.

Earl On A Skateboard

OK, everyone knows that Jason Lee used to be a skateboarder but did you know he ripped like this? Dude was sick! Big move from skater man to Tom Cruise's wingman.

Doing shit that didn't even exist at the time...seriously

Led Zeppelin Reunion (Video)

The past two years have been chock full of reunions. But it's safe to say that all pale in comparison to last night's Led Zeppelin reunion. I mean it's fucking Zeppelin man! YouTube is littered with clips but hear are a few that give you an idea of what it was like. Page seemed a little off, but I guess he's always played a little off. Really though it doesn't matter because again, it's Zeppelin!

Stairway To Heaven (bad video but the audio is ok)

If anyone wants to fly me out to the UK I'd be happy to review the next one (hint hint wink wink).
