An early one from one of my favorite bands. They changed a lot over the years, in a good way, but this still sticks with me. That heavy intro is amazing.

For a little dose of insanity, here's one with a delightful mix of elements. Doll$Boxx was a great band, though as yet they've only come together for one album (most the members are from the band Gacharic Spin, and the lead singer is from Light Bringer).

Some Power Metal, probably what will mostly be seen in this collection, this from Stratovarious post Tolkki (which I prefer. Nothing against Tolkki, I just like what they've done since he left).

This is a band has really been growing on me lately, especially their work from the last 5 years or so. They're also interesting for the fact that the band has had none of it's original members for decades.

Well, this song has been stuck in my head all weekend, and parts of last week, so I guess it warrants sharing. Awesome power metal band from Sweden. Do they a feel a bit like another Rhapsody style band? Sure, but that's entirely a good thing. Also, extra points for the awesome performance wardrobe.

Heard for the first time today, but had to put this band in here. Great power metal telling high fantasy tales.

First song for the collection must go to the legendary Iron Maiden, and what better than the opening of one of (if not the) greatest metal albums yet heard. Thus, here it is, Moonchild from The Seventh Son of a Seventh Son album, as performed live during their 1988 tour for the album.

Apparently, part of the justification for deploying this tracking device was a comment one of Afifi's friends had left at Reddit

Afifi's claims that he is being locked out by potential employers because of his run-in with the FBI are dismissed as "self-inflicted" -- not because Afifi had the misfortune of being acquainted with a person whose Reddit comment drew FBI heat, but because he "reported his confrontation with the FBI agents to local and national media, and the media published numerous stories about the encounter."

So... were at a state of, "be careful who you associate with, be careful what you hear, and if the government does anything you think is illegal, don't tell anyone, or any repercussions are your own fault."
 
None of Afifi's claims survive. Qualified immunity nullifies Afifi's First and Fourth Amendment Bivens claims with an assist from the circuit courts' split on warrantless GPS tracking.
Back in 2010, Redditor Yasir Afifi found an unusual device on his car while taking it in for an oil change. Other Redditors surmised it was some sort of tracking device -- something that was confirmed a few days later when two SUVs full of...

In honor of the return of Thrice, I think it's time to... post some Thrice.

There's still good shepherds scattered
But they're far between and few,
And the sheep's skin the wolves all wear
Is so thin I see right through

I'll be here.
Introduction
I have a double majored degree in Theology and Religious Studies and English and enjoy continuing to learn along those lines, particularly Catholic Systematic Theology for the former and 19th-early 20th Century British literature for the latter though I often enjoy other related material as well. I work in tech, and have particular interest in both the development of new technologies and their history, especially in computer technology.

Hobby and arts wise, I like Heavy Metal music, particularly Symphonic Power Metal. I enjoy Retro games for their fun, as well as for their artistic properties, history and cultural elements. I also enjoy a wide variety of other topics and can often be drawn into most fields, at least for a little while.
