What's up everyone! Kevin here... can you believe this... Hairclub actually decided to let us do a blog! As if putting us on the air together isn't a terrible enough idea in the first place haha. So here we are with our very first one ever! Basically these blogs are going to serve to recap the show a bit, talk about some of our thoughts (me and Steve) on whatever the hell we feel like talking about, show videos of bands we like or played, crazy debauchery that goes down in the studio during the show, and all the other stuff you've come to expect from a blog in 2008. I'm not sure how often we're going to do them, but I can say for sure it will be at least once a week. My brain is always burning with randomness that needs an outlet, so I will post here whenever I feel the urge.
I can't speak for Steve, but I plan on covering a lot of ground with my posts on this blog. In addition to all things metal, I am into a bunch of other stuff that rules as well and I always like to share. I know there are some of you out there that love sports or video games or really good beers or hot girls or all of the above! Nothing is off limits in my posts.
The show this week was somewhat bittersweet. It was the first show in 3 weeks that Steve and I actually did together. I was gone last week, he was gone the week before. But this we week we reunited for more of the same old jokes about my mom from Steve and me shaking my head and just laughing in ironic comedy (Steve's mother is a very delightful person who I enjoy visiting frequently). We had some good tickets to give away for Blackest of the Black with Danzig and Dimmu Borgir, and also for Himsa's final show on Saturday. We also had Derek, Kirby and John from Himsa in the studio with us and it was a totally awesome and hilarious time, as it always is when those dudes join us! It just kind of sucks that this will most likley be the very last time they're all in there with us. They all sound excited about their futures though and that's the most important thing, so I'm happy for them and what they've already accomplished so far. We should have taken a picture with them. It would have been perfect for this first ever Metal Shop blog. But they brought special treats them, of the adult variety and I don't know if any of you have ever tried that kind of stuff before, but sometimes it can make you forget things. We apologize!
As you may have noticed, there are some new things on the Metal Shop page here that are pretty cool. We now update our playlist in real time, so you can see what we play as we play it (well, almost). Also, the new On Demand player will feature entire episodes of Metal Shop completely commercial free, interviews, and other cool stuff. Check it all out. Look at us go!
All right, I'm going to try to get this thing posted now. We'll see what happens. I'm going to bug Steve about getting into posting mode, so maybe in a day or two you'll see something from him. Who knows though.. his computer brain doesn't always work so well. Hopefully he won't figure out how to edit my posts haha.
