What better way to drive your neighbours (friends, loved ones, law enforcement) up the wall than a good dose of weaponized industrial-strength terrorcore techno consisting of spliced in, mashed-up samples and sound-bites riding on a breakbeat on hyperdrive? Not recommended for those who want to sleep.

Nobody can manhandle a Hammond or massacre a Moog like Keith Emerson. And the bastard's turning 70 this year. Damn. Time flies fast.

I wonder what would happen if the Muppets were to replace the Bork Bork ("Swedish") chef with Niclas (the ROSMT chef). What mayhem would he unleash?

My memory may be a bit wonky in my old age, but I remember seeing them at the old Marquee on Gottingen with Melissa auf der Maur and Matthew Good. "Tinfoil" was part of their encore along with "Wake Up To The Sun". Bunch of cool guys. I wonder if Melissa auf der Maur has gotten around to checking out Lee Aaron, to whom I compared in my somewhat altered state. #limblifter   #melissaaufdermaur   #matthewgood

Before Rebecca Black (re-)discovered Friday, these Aussie blokes killed it wayyy back in the day. 2 of the members became Flash & the Pan. Of these 2 gents, one of them has 2 brothers who decided to follow in his footsteps. They became the core of AC/DC. Happy Good Friday Weekend! :)

Story
Tagline
A man of many talents. Not quite a renaissance man - more of an apprentice.
Introduction
I've lived many lives, made many mistakes, and now I'm just enjoying my life. And I still can't believe that I have accomplished that much! And yet there is still much more to do.
Bragging rights
Have you ever driven through the Rockies in a middle of a raging snowstorm with only all-season radials and lived to tell about it? I have. :)
