15 Albums...

August 20th, 2010 (06:05 pm)

Yoinked from eldelphia 

The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen albums you've heard that will always stick with you. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my friends choose.

If you fancy doing it consider yourself tagged!

1. Fear Factory - Demanufacture. If I ever go to war this is my soundtrack.

2. White Zombie - Astrocreep 2000. Lots of happy memories and the heaviest groove EVER!!!

3. Alice in Chains - Dirt. Got me through a lot of stuff over the years and still sends shivers up my spine.

4. Peral Jam - Ten. Some of the most beautiful songs ever written. Black has the power to move even me to tears.

5. Metallica - Master of Puppets. The finest thrash album ever written.

6. Prodigy - Music for the Jilted Generation. This album let me know that it was ok to like dance and that it went pretty well with metal :)

7. Faith No More - Angeldust. Pure genius, helped me listen to more than just mainstream metal.

8. Motley Crue - Decade of Decadence. I know its a greatest hits album, but it is awesome party metal.

9. Wildhearts - Earth Vs The Wildhearts. One of the best british rock albums of all time, always puts a smile on my face.

10. Skindred - Babylon. RAGGGAAA METAALLL!!! Fronted by a big black welsh rasta with a valleys accent. Awesome.

11. Slayer - Live Decade of Aggression. If you ever need a pick me up, Track 3 - THIS IS A SONG CALLED.....WWAAAAARRRRRRRRR EEENNNNNSSSSEEEEMMMMMBBBLLLE!!!!!

12. Skid Row - Slave to the Grind. Brilliant album, I think their best.

13. Guns N Roses - Use Your Illusion II - where it all started for me...

14. Breed 77 - Cultura. Makes me bounce.

15. Beethovens 9th - made me realise that in some ways classical can be just as heavy as metal

As some of you may have read of Nellies LJ, we visited Knebworth this weekend for Metal Debauchery. It was FUCKING AWESOME! Big thanks to matsuo_kumiko , larpsidekick , Brid, Gemma, Andy and Ellen for being there and contributing to the awesomeness.

Thoughts, comments? (No you LRP nerds, it isn't what you think it is....)

And to finish on a happy note...

Cardiff Blues just beat Northampton Saints in the EDF Semi Final.  The defeat of the Ospreys (Cheer) to Gloucester means that the final is Cardiff vs Gloucester.  The Blues finally have a chance at some actual silverware :)

And I'm being taken out and having my drinks paid for tonight:)

Meanwhile, elsewhere on the planet...

So approximately 2 months back over the border, how's it going I hear you say? (well maybe a couple of you....)  In the finest traditions of rating LRP events here is my hot and not of the last couple of months:


Having a place of my own and someone to share it with
My new job.  Completely awesome. Still need to meet up with Mr Bradbeer for coffee though...
Being able to see a whole bunch of people without needing to drive for a couple of hours first
Running Adventure! Has been interesting...
My new job.
Getting a huge TV.  Still haven't watched Transformers, Episodes IV - VI or Iron Man on it...
Getting good marks on my last MA work even though I had to do it in the middle of upheaval
Last episodes of BSG
My new job


Being burgled. 
Having laptops and ipods nicked.
Having my ipod nicked.  Absolutely gutted over that.
Not being able to see some people without having to drive for a couple of hours first.
The car dying
The scottish performance in the 6 nations.  Some great work from our welsh secret weapons (Thom and Max Evans) but still very much the 'very nearly men'.
My local rugby team being the Saints now, rather than the Blues.
Lack of money due to many reasons.
Not having LRP enthusiasm.  At all.  I really want to be enthused again.

So overall its been a good few weeks marked by some rather large downsides.  Am looking forward to heading back to Cardiff in a couple of weeks for the Heineken Cup Quarter final and I'm also looking forward to Sai's stag night even though I can only afford to make part of it.

Hope to see many of you soon,

Be cool and groovy :)

Help please?

Evening all,

I need help.  I would like to get A2/A1 posters of 5 album covers:  "Ten" by Pearl Jam, "Dirt" by Alice in Chains, "Master of Puppets" by Metallica, "Demanufacture" by Fear Factory and "Astro Creep 2000" by White Zombie.  I've searched on the 'net but my net foo is probably weak.  Do any of you have any suggestions?

Mostly for Carnaaki....

Following on from my earlier post about the GI Joe movie, I just spotted this:


It'll be Gobots next or maybe M.A.S.K or if we're really lucky Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors...

I'm leaving Cardiff...

Mood:: relieved
Music:: MASH theme tune

Some of you may be aware that I'm leaving Cardiff.  I'll be going out for one or two drinks this Saturday, starting at the little O'Neills at 7:30.

How did I miss this?

Music:: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

G.I. Joe is to be made into a live action film to be released this summer:

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Ray Parks is to play Snake Eyes which could be pretty cool, however....

Some of the photos on this site:


are making me slightly nervous.  It is looking slightly cringe worthy but I'll wait till an official trailer is released.
