- I’m going to try to make the next Connecticon Member Appreciation Day on September 13th. These “MADs”, as they’re called, are essentially mini-Connecticons that are, for awhile, free to the public (After a certain date in the ‘Con year, they become restricted to CTCon attendees only). Fun stuff.
- As you may have gathered from my recent postings, I’ve been thinking of Metallica a bit lately, and more precisely, I’ve been wondering why Master of Puppets gets all the love/critical acclaim/rock magazine specials/etc. made about it. It’s very good, to be sure, but…it serves mainly as the bridge between Ride the Lightning, which laid the template for what is generally considered their best output and …And Justice for All, which was the perfection of said template. Puppets, by comparison, is…just not as good to me, I guess.
- Finally, with the 2008 football season almost upon us, have a joke:
Q: What’s the difference between Mama Cass (Of The Mamas & The Papas) and the 2007 New England Patriots?
A: Only one of them choked to death.
Thank you! Good night!
