My Quiet Riot crossover post

For those who actually read my other blog, this will seem a bit familiar.

I was recently given a wonderful gift. A gift of music. Specifically Quiet Riot's album: Metal Health. I'll be honest here: I wasn't as impressed as I had hoped, upon my first listen. Sure, who can resist the album's two hit singles, "Metal Health" and "Cum On Feel The Noize"? But the rest of the album just felt either a little soft or a little hokey or both.

Well, it's weeks later, and I still can't stop listening. I've entirely fallen in love with the album. I don't have a good explanation for my change in feelings, but it is what it is. If you like classic 80's metal, and you haven't given Quiet Riot a chance yet, I strongly urge you to pick up Metal Health and bang your head.

Skulls and birds and guitars, oh my!

A few months ago, my buddy over at St Awesome came up with a frightfully accurate portrayal of Target men's t-shirts. His theory was that nearly every shirt contained at least a skull, bird, or guitar. For a while, it was a fun game to play when visiting Target; there was a plethora of shirts that fit the description. Now, times are a'changin'.

Taking a look at Target's current line-up, I'd have to say trees are starting to become the new guitar. They both have similar shapes, so it seems a logical step.

I wonder if they have the missing link t-shirt: a tree in the shape of a guitar!
