In a sudden crime wave involving sandwiches”

from ChattahBox, MA


VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Vero Beach man faces a domestic violence charge after authorities said he assaulted his girlfriend with a cheeseburger. An Indian River County Sheriff’s Office arrest report said a 22-year-old man and his girlfriend got into an argument as they sat in a car in front of their home.

The report said the man would not let the woman out of the vehicle, so she threw his drink out of the car. In response, the man allegedly grabbed her arm and smashed the cheeseburger into her face. The pair got out of the car, and authorities say the man again took the McDonald’s sandwich and put it on her face.

The man was released on $1,000 bond Wednesday.

FALKENBACH – Heralding – The Fireblade

Posted in Music by oldmandub on December 4, 2008

Here’s some kick ass music from Germany. Started as a one man project in the late 80’s Falkenbach really developed in the 00’s possibly because the writer Vratyas Vakyas (translated as “the searching wanderer”) had by then taken the time to learn Old Norse, Latin, and Old German, which makes the clean vocal parts sound much more epic than in english, and had began to shy away more from the bedroom-black metal sound that clogs the blogs of the internet and more towards a simplistic yet epic folk sound that invokes images of packed heathen halls of singing ale worshipers swinging their mugs in unison. Mixed with acoustic guitars, very heavy distorted guitars, light strings, battle drums, and some wooden pipes, this could be some 90s Radiohead for the viking warrior. Heralding – The Fireblade is predominantly songs with the black metal roots and the cave dwelling vocals, but plenty of the more evolved sound fills this solid album. It’s a combination that is eloquently done as to not be a muddled mess. Put it on your iPod, sit on a hilltop with your hood over your head, smoke an old pipe, and enjoy.

and follow up with a search for the album Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty if you want the album with none of the black metal.

Blues Rock from Denmark

Posted in Music by thedumpsterbaby on December 2, 2008

oldmanwinter proposed we start posting music on here, so im gonna go ahead and give that a brief first shot.

here we have a showcasing of heavy blues rock from Denmark around the late 60s, early 70s.  most take strong influence from the guitar stylings of Hendrix and Clapton, you can hear a little Sabbath and Blue Cheer on some tracks, and the bands were creative, too.  Definitely some interesting stuff worth giving a listen if youre a fan of the genre.  enjoy!

There’s one more from the same scene by a band called Days but due to it’s rather common name I havent been able to find it…if anyone else can find it or has it and wants to post it, that would be great.
