Fat Freddy

My Stuff on HubPages.com

Recommended Posts

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.

Good review of the Accept disc and yes still a great great album even a year later. Not only is it there best album in many years but also one of their best albums ever IMO. My only disagreement would be the Eat the Heat album which I still love, but i'm a Reece fanatic. Sure it's not the heavy classic Accept but there's some great songs on there IMO. Can't wait for the follow up to Blood of the Nations. :headbanger:

In my latest HubPages entry (inspired by a joke post I made in the "Let's Go Back to 1991" thread), I went for an "Onion" style expose of how the Grunge revolution REALLY happened.

Note to the humor impaired: this entry is a PARODY. No offense was intended.

Dude, that line made me laugh out loud. Well done.

When Lips and Robb were on that metal show they were talking about having horns and jazz mixed with metal and they said they invented a new genre(of course I'm assuming they've never heard of early Megadeth) and Sebastian Bach called it "Horny Metal" instead of Horn Metal.

Yeah, I saw that interview...funny stuff. I kinda cringed and rolled my eyes when Reiner sez "If Metal on Metal was the future of metal in 1982, Juggernaut of Justice is the future of metal in 2011." I was like "Oh pleeeeeeeeeze." It's good, but it's not THAT good for cryin' out loud. :D

 

As for them thinking that they've invented a new genre by adding horns to metal, I guess that must mean that even though they're good buddies with Raven and have played many shows with them over the years, they've never heard Raven's "The Bottom Line," "Hyperactive" or "Don't Let It Die," all of which have horn sections in them. :lol:

Well, let me tell you guys that if you're thinking of joining up w/HubPages, don't do it thinking it's a get rich quick scheme. I've been there for six weeks now and according to the "earnings" thingy on my profile, I've made a grand total of one cent (!) via Google AdSense. So I guess I shouldn't quit my job to write for this site full time ... haha.

 

I honestly was surprised to see that I've earned anything at all (but at least it shows that I have the affiliate stuff working correctly, anyway)... I mean, it's a nice idea in theory that somebody will be so moved by my articles on the new Anvil CD or the "Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus" movie that they'll click the Amazon links at the bottom of the page and order a copy immediately so I'd get a cut... but I think we all know how likely that is to happen.

 

I'm gonna keep posting stuff there simply cuz it's fun, but wow, when I read postings from people there complaining about how they're not making any money, I'm thinking that maybe they've got their sights set a wee bit too high, or they're writing stuff for the site for the wrong reason.

Hey, this is kinda cool. I was just notified that one of my HubPages articles is under consideration for a "HubNugget" award. Articles that get picked as "HubNuggets" are included in HubPages' monthly newsletter, which gets sent out to 130,000 people (!) There's no $$ or prizes involved, but I love the idea that something I wrote would be read by that many folks. But I need your votes to make it happen!!

 

If y'all would be so kind as to go to the link below and vote for the article "Enter the Asylum: A Descent Into B-Movie Hell!" you would have my eternal gratitude. And hey, read some of my other stuff while you're at it. It's fun stuff (if I do say so myself)

 

Vote now, vote often, tell your friends, your family, your pets, everyone you know to vote!! Thanks in advance!!

    • Agree.   Still my favorite release this year also.  
    • Still playing this all the time Definitely my favourite melodic rock release this year so far
    • are we listening to the same song? the pre is pure Vega. I love it. And the chorus is great.  And the solo rules. You lost me on this one mate  I actually love the whole album start to finish. Not often I say that these days 
    • Isn't that you breaking your music rules?
      Allowing a song multiple listens to show its worth?

      😎
    • Airfare cast isn't the issue. These days you get to LA return with Air New Zealand from Melbourne for less then $100
      I Saw Melbourne to Athens today for like $650 or something with Scoot.

      For me it's the wasted time in the air.
      Spend a day to get somewhere, and a day to get back, I say you need at least 10 days on the ground to make it worthwhile.

    • I kinda disagree and agree with you on this. The disagreement is because overall it is not a terrible album and is by far not her worst (go listed to the two jazz albums and 2Preciious or whatever that band was called). And as for classic sound, she does not really have one as her sound evolved significantly over the years. She went from the rawer heavier stuff of her earliest albums to the slick radio friendly stuff like Some girls do, to a more modern "serious" album like Emotional rain. All very different. Now where I do agree with you is that it is nowhere near close to being up there with her best and the lyrics are bloody horrible. There were a couple of songs where I just wanted to shout at her to shut up. The lyrics actually sound at times like they were written by a 10 year old who had just formed their own band for the first time. (My babe being a particularly bad song lyrically.)   The album for me is listenable, but is not even a patch on her last one (which I know left fans divided).   I know having the word blues in the title was a giveaway she would be trying her hand at that style of music, but I did not expect the lyrics to give me the blues due to the horribleness.
