I'm Thankful For

So, tomorrow most of us will be eating Thanksgiving dinner. We'll be enjoying shit loads of food, drinking wine, and all that good stuff. And, while we are all grateful for the good stuff in our lives, there is some stuff, I'm grateful for that I probably won't be mentioning at the table. But, I can thank God, right here! Score!

Hot Asian Girls- If you read this blog regularly or know me (whether it be in real life or through social networks), then my love for beautiful Asian women should come as no shocker to you. I pick a babe every month to be the Hot Asian of the Month, and it's with good reason, that I dedicate so much love to them here. To me, they are the most beautiful women in the world, and with examples like Grace Park, Jamie Chung, Gail Kim, Asa Akira, London Keyes, Jessica Bangkok, Tila Tequila, Kelly Hu, etc is there any wonder? Honestly, I am always grateful when a TV show (Hawaii Five 0 and Nikita) or non-Asian movie (Sorority Row, Priest) has a beautiful Asian woman in it. Events are made better too, when beautiful Asian women are present. In fact, every thing is better with a stunning Asian woman! So, more should take heed, of this. I mean how many interchangeable blondes with big boobs and blue eyes (no offense to blondes with blue eyes and big tits) does the world really need?

Metal Music- To me, there is NO better type of music. Many say music is their lives, it certainly is for me. With it's many sub-genres (hard rock, goth, hair, industrial, progressive, power, grindcore, deathcore, metalcore, nu-metal, my favs- thrash, death, black, and traditional, and a never ending list more), metal has a song or band or style to fit all of my moods. And, if you truly love this music it's in your heart forever. It's more than just music, it's a life style, a culture, it kicks your fucking ass!! So, metalheads, raise those devil horns and give thanks for THE greatest form of music in the history of mankind!!!


Video Games- Or more specifically, for me, my beloved X-Box 360. I have not loved a system this much in ages. Video games provide hours of pleasure and joy. Life is made better by video games. So, no matter what system you are on, you should be grateful, for you know this to be true. Just go and play Dead Rising 2, and you know will the way!!!






Porn- Ahh, porn. That sign says it best. And, unlike dating your heart won't ever be broken. There is porn for all tastes. And, I know what I like, and who I like, when it comes to smut. And, sure not every porno is as great as the other, but at least I know if get something with Asa Akira, she will be getting fucked. Ahh, Asa, I am grateful just for you! Oh, and the tissue industry is surely gratefully for porn. Do you think the head of Kleenex gives thanks for the existence of porn at the table? Hmm, inquiring minds want to know!



Conventions- I've been going to cons since 1990. The first one I went to was Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors. Those are no longer held, and in their final run sucked more dick than a Tijuana whore. But, a great con is something to fucking always be thankful for. I have met lots of famous, and not so famous, people at them. I have also made friends, some of them quite good, at these shows. The pic on the left is from this Oct.'s Big Apple Con. It's the still beautiful Sunny and me. OK, that con was sort of whack. In fact, had I not hung with my friend Kristie it would have out right blown, but I met her and Clare (Glory from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) Kramer. They were both mad cool and totally hot! The best cons, to m,e remain Chiller (even if I had to miss their Oct. show) and the best of ALL: Exxxotica! God, how I LOVE Exxxotica!! That's me with the gorgeous Jessica Bangkok, at this year's amazing show, by the way.

Anyways, hope you all have a safe and HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Enjoy it with your loved ones. Take care, my dear friends and readers. I'm grateful that you guys read my stuff. And, that I mean. :)

The All Time Best Heavy Metal/ Hard Rock Logos

This past Saturday's episode of That Metal Show had a segment where the guys voted for their picks of the best metal band logos. I gotta say while, they picked some good ones, they stuck with classic/ iconic ones. Well, hey it is VH-1 Classics, after all. That said I felt like making my own list. I, though, decided to break into the best of the classic/ iconic ones and the all time fucking coolest.

The Best Iconic/ Classic Logos
10. Megadeth is one of the coolest looking of all time. In particular cause it evokes a metallic almost 3D feel to it.

9. Anthrax might have the most awesome logo of the Big Four. While, the look changed slightly over the years it is still pretty fucking awesome.


8. AC/DC's lighting blot is iconic enough. This logo is all fucking classic!




7. Few logos are classic and ironically evil as Slayer's wheel/ pentagram. You look at ,and you know what this band is all about. Truly one of the 80s most fucking awesome logos!





6. With the S's written like lightning bolts, the Kiss logo is one of the most recognizable in the world.









5. Iron Maiden's logo is so iconic that the font itself frequently is used for all things metal. You can't get more classic than that!!








4. The Misfits logo, along with the Crimson Ghost, can be seen just about everywhere. Easily one of rock's best merchandised bands, the Misfits have a legacy all their own. And, their love for horror is very apparent. THE greatest punk band, ever, also have THE best logo in ALL of punk. End of story.






3. The biggest band to come out of the thrash metal scene, Metallica, has one of the most recognizable logos in the history of music. BTW, I hated when the logo changed for those "shitty" albums, you know which ones I mean!!!

2. While not as popular with the mainstream as the others on the list, King Diamond's classic logo is one of the coolest around. I mean it has a fucking bat (note how many abnd on this list have a bat wings on this list) and a symbol on it. That makes it a top place holder on any fucking logo list!!!!





1. The top spot goes to the metal god's band, Judas Priest!!! This one is easily the coolest of the classic/ iconic logos. It's probably the most complex of the ones on THIS list, but just wait till the next list, starts...






The Coolest Fucking Logos Ever!
Unlike the group before this one is NOT based on icon status but rather just how fucking cool the logo looks. Notice all will be black and death metal bands, cause, well, they have the best logos, usually.
NOTE: I wanted to stick to logos you can still read, hence some of the crazier black/ death metal logos are not here.

10. The fathers of black metal, Venom, have what is one of the coolest logos of ANY 80s band. Definitely a sign of things to come.





9. Death are the first true death metal ,and their fucking awesome logo has a reaper, a cross (inverted in the early days), fire, a spider and a web, and blood! In other words it FUCKING RULES!!! They also happen to be my all time fav death metal, act, by the way.





8. Thrash masters Possessed could be said to be have the first death metal album. What is definitely true is that their logo, with two inverted crosses, fire, and a pointed tail surely tell you about the evil contained in the lyrics. You knew this band, for sure, was, and did, sign about good old Lucifer.

7. Speaking of Satan, the first true black metal act of the list comes in the form of Sweden's evil Dissection. One of my personal favorite black metal acts, they had a cool logo, that could still be readable.


6. The best of the 80s logos has to belong to thrash/ speed metal masters Dark Angel. Come on, the fonts are cool and it has bar wings for fuck's sake!!!!



5. The first death metal that I ever owned every album of, has super cool fonts. And, depending on what album or shirt you are looking at, a dragon for a T or dripping blood!!! Now THAT is fucking metal!!!





4. Impaled has some of the coolest fonts in the metal world. This one proves you don't need blood, pentagrams, bats, inverted crosses, whatever, to make a cool looking logo.


3. Cradle of Filth's logo gives you a good idea of the gothic, black metal music you are in for. You know these guys will surely sign about scary, evil, and gothy things. Like all the best logos it simply fits the band.

2. One of THE most infamous bands in all of metal, Mayhem, have a logo that is just legible and cool enough to make the list. This one has wicked fonts, bat wings, and upside down crosses. You see this one works. Unfortunately, too many black metal bands decided to make impossible to read logos, after seeing this, probably...


1. The first death metal act I ever got into, Morbid Angel, has my ALL time fav logo. This one is just a greatest hits of satanic imagery: inverted crosses, pitchfork, pentagram, pagan symbols, and two pointy tails. In other words, definitely a band to piss your mom off. To me, this is THE definitive logo with complex fonts. As it is easy to read, cool, and evil as fuck.




So, there's my list. Do you agree? Was I missing a band? Who would you have put in here? Tell me. I would love to know. And, remember keep metal and hard rock alive!! Horns up!!!

Duff's Peter Steele/ Halloween Honoring/ Celebration 2010

This Sunday marked my first time not going to Chiller in ages. In fact, I cannot remember the last I did not go there. For those of you readers and friends, who were there, I would love to hear how it was. I hope you guys who went there had a great time.

Anyways, I went to THE greatest bar on God's green Earth on Halloween night: Duff's Brooklyn!!!! I had decided to spend my Halloween there, and when I heard that they were doing something special to honor Peter Steele, the late lead signer of the legendary goth metal band Type O Negative, I had to go there. He passed away earlier this year.

Anyways, I first needed a costume and after much consideration I came up with: Zombie Guido!! He once known as the G-Man, and he was quite the ladies man. But, one night a certain cast member of the Jersey Shore wanted some, "Smoosh, smoosh", but our hero (who can do so much better) refused and got his throat slit. But, he rose from the grave in search of GTL (gym, tan, and laundry) and human flesh! Yeah, in other words I had way to much spare time to come up with this! :P

Anyways, as I got there, at first I thought I was the only person who had a costume, but soon others joined in/ appeared. Bar tender Laurie Ann, aka LA, grew an eight pack (better than a six pack!) for the event. There were lots of cool costumes, but I have to say that my fav was this dude who came in as Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley! That's just so fucking cool, man!

As is always the case with Duffs I ran into people I already knew and made new friends.

This being a night for Peter Steele, their were some noteworthy people there, too. His sister was there as was former porn star, ex-ECW star Jasmine St. Claire.

Now, this was not the big tribute to Steele; they originally mentioned it to be. They ain't ready for that yet, but they played his music most of the night, and we, his fans, remembered his greatness. I had been a fan since I was a teen and read about them in metal mags. When, I saw the cover to Bloody Kisses I had to get. It remains one of my fav albums. I had the pleasure ot meet him at the old Duff's some years back, and he was a funny, nice guy. As I said before, it was so sad when he passed away. I think my friend said ii beat when I saw her in Vegas in July, and she called them life changing music. Amen, sister, amen.

Anyways, I had a great time, and I hope you had a great Halloween, too. Remember it only comes once a year (though for some of us it's Halloween year round, but you get the idea), so hope you fuckin' enjoy it, the right way! And, if you wanna see more pics, go to my facebook. I got lots, there.
