Slow News Day

A friend with the best of intentions included me on one of those e-mail Q&A things. I should have answered it seriously and I'm not a very good friend for being such a smartass (sorry Marin) but, unfortunately, it's my way since I'm a shifty Oriental.

Things you may not have known about me.....

B) Four movies I would watch over and over again (and do):
  1. My Dinner With Andre (for the drunken suicidal pick axe assault scene to retake the citadel)

  4. The Sirens (Pisinoe, Aglaope, and Thelxiepi) - I saw them with Odysseus back in The Day.
On another note: Why are Orientals so pathetic?? Click HERE and nod in agreement. You're NOT cool.. Stick to Math, kids.

That being said, THIS Oriental says the new Slayer album, the first with the original lineup in 16 years, is FOOKIN' GLEAT!! It's exactly what I wanted (nay, needed!) to hear. The song 'Cult' is THE feel-good song of the Summer!

"I'VE MADE MY CHOICE!!! 666!!!"

The Old School never lets me down... which makes me want to share one of my all-time favorite pictures (taken from Slayer's Soundtrack To The Apocalypse box set):

Slayer, Exodus, & Road Crew - 1984
(Spot the youthful Tour Manager Doug - D-E-V-O).

Me love Slayer long time.
