Just found this thread and skimmed a few of the posts. It's refreshing to see a healthy dose of blues and metal listed. Home is pretty much a metal-free zone, Mrs T doesn't have much tolerance for headbanging, but I cut my musical teeth on Black Sabbath back when they were new. Currently I listen to Satriani whenever possible. Recently discovered a youtube video of Slipknot perfoming Wait and Bleed that I absolutely loved, but of course it got pulled after about two weeks, and no reposting of that performance has shown up yet. Listened to Al DiMeola's Elegant Gypsy and Kenny Wayne Shepard's Trouble Is while we were making the stuffed shells earlier. Not nearly enough volume for my taste, but whaddaya gonna do.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Scientific Remote Viewing - Cephalic Carnage

Pretty good headbanging, yah? :D

Very nice and mellow, would go well with wine and cheese.

Currently rocking out to the sound of the building's air circulation system, and the occasional flush of a toilet from the bathroom two doors down the hall.
