    Poison - Native Tongue ...my first Goodwill Store score in a couple of months! It ain't much but I'll take it. Hopefully this is a sign that the dry spell is coming to an end.

  7. Hey Gang: dunno if any of you are familiar with the blogging site "HubPages," but I've recently started a profile on it. I've posted a couple of my CD reviews and over time I'm planning to add much more music, movie and comic-related geeky nonsense. If you wanna check it out, my profile can be found here: http://hubpages.com/profile/FatFreddysCat (Before anybody asks, "FatFreddysCat" is an old alias I used online many moons ago. I eventually lopped off the "Cat" and went with plain ol' "Fat Freddy," but I felt it was time to bring it back. In addition to my stuff there are literally tons of other weird blogs/articles on this site about just about any topic you can possibly think of, so it makes for some interesting (and occasionally hilarious) reading. Supposedly there's some kinda nonsense involving Google AdSense tied into this site where you can supposedly make a few bucks off of your writings (similar to Examiner.com, I guess), but I haven't explored that side of it yet, I just thought it looked like a neat place to post some of my deranged ramblings. Hope you dig it.

    Church rummage sale pickup: Gryn - Capital Punishment (1995) - a self released disc by a Kansas-based groove/thrash metal band. Given the time period, it sounds pretty much like I expected - local yokels copping the Pantera/C.O.C./Sepultura/Prong vibe. For 50 cents, I'm not gonna complain too much

    New entry! I don't collect vinyl but every time I'm in my local Goodwill scrounging for CDs I always flip through the moldy old LPs just to see what kind of weird sh** will turn up. Here are a half dozen album covers that made me go WTF? https://hubpages.com/entertainment/Weird-Thrift-Store-Record-Finds

    RIP Vinnie Paul of Pantera

    Geez, I was never much more than a casual Pantera fan, but the man could definitely crush those drums and the "Cowboys From Hell" disc is still an essential 90s metal listen. R.I.P. sir.

    Cinderella's Hot Dog commercial

    Bumpin' this classic, because it's Chili Dog season. Pat's Dogs, if it still stands, should be like Graceland for Cinderella fans. All hail Brittingham!

    Stryper - God Damn Evil

    Got my copy of this in yesterday's mail - broke it in during the ride to work this AM. Quickie first spin impression: Me likee. If you dug the last couple of records (I did) then you should like this one as well. Frighteningly enough, I think that mongoloid chorus in "Take It To The Cross" is actually kinda growing on me!!
