Supernatural Thursday and I rock the Mother Effin’ House!

23 10 2008

weather: High: 58 degrees and partly sunny with rain tonight.

SO nice and cool outside today. In fact I’m getting a first hand lesson in dressing approprioately because a thins sweater under a hoodie is like wearing mesh when the wind is blowing and the air temp is in the 40s. So color me chastened when it comes to dressing for the weather.  We’re talking diamond cutters here folks. (And no, I won’t elaborate if you don’t get the reference )

Okay. Work situation is panning out as not as bad as I thought and I’ll leave it at that.

Last night I was very happy to see that MTV2 deigned to show actual MUSIC related programming and I got to see at least a bit of the Avenged Sevenfold concert. And they were AMAZING. I’ve put their live DVD on my Amazon Wishlist. I know I don’t seem like a metal girl, but I have a deep rooted appreciation for any band that has a good vocalist (they do), understands complex song writing (ditto) and uses harmony twin guitars to good effect. (Wibble!) They remind me a bit of Guns and Roses, but M. Shadows can sing CIRCLES around Axl. SRSLY. Add them to a list that includes Disturbed, Anthrax, Megadeth and Metallica of metal bands that I appreciate.  (I’d stick Queensryche in there too, but they’re not technically Metal.)

Writing continues apace. Actually went over the rough draft of Dark of the Mirror and realized I had added some notes to fill in the gaps between scenes. It’s still gonna need a monster of a polish once I get the actual writing done.

Have some Avenged Sevewnfold to close out the day:

Live version of “a Little Piece Of Heaven” that is flabbergasting in it’s sheer awesomeness. I described it elsewhere as Guns & Roses meets Sweeney Todd. Imagine a hard rock musical. SERIOUSLY! It’s AMAZING. All the band members have individual singing parts and musically it wouldn’t be out of place in something like Threepenny Opera. FLOORED when I watch it.

Also: Abney Park explains their path to Steampunk Gods extraordinaire.

(Have I mentioned lately how much I adore this band?? SERIOUSLY. Check out my Last.FM if you don’t believe me!)
