Going Green or Beating a dead horse?

Recommended Posts

I went to wall-mart yesterday to pick a few items up, Tampons, Chocolate (Yeah! you know what my week is gonna be like :hammer: ) While I was walking down the aisles and getting sympathetic looks from women, I decided to head over to the entertainment section to look through the c.d. selection. I always think I'm going to find a rare gem :lame: . I did pick up OZZY'S NO MORE TEARS for less than $8.00 :dance: . As I looked up, I noticed the first 3 VAN HALEN albums in cardboard sleeves. There was also a sticker on them stateing that their going green and trying to protect the environment.

Are you fuckin' Kidding me? Charging the same amount as a jewelcase. Is this some type of sick trend? This planet has been here before us, and it will be here long after were all gone. Now! I'm not saying that you shouldn't recycle, but to sell your album in a different sleeve in hopes that we would believe that your ozone friendly is absurd :thppt:

I think it's time our so-called heroes of rock should know that this is unacceptable. VAN HALEN just reissued their c.d.s a few years back. Why do it again? IRON MAIDEN? They beat that horse so many times, there is nothing left.

Then there is METAL MIND MUSIC! Who bought the rights to early ROADRACER records. I would like to pick up all of their releases, but their all on digi-pacs. When I did email them about the cardboard sleeves, they said I had to wait 9 months for the jewelcase releases. Once again, milking your fans.

I do hope the wonderful people at KIVEL,STORMSPELL,SENTINEL STEEL, RETROSPECT, WOUNDED BIRD, ROCK CANDY, ETC, ETC don't get that urge.

Thanks for allowing me to rant!

Goin' to take my meds now!! :wacko:

This whole going green is a money grab. I read on MSNBC that the recent warming trend dates back over 1000 years, long before our industrialization. So much for greenhouse gases and other such nonsense. I was watching George Carlin a few days back and he said it PERFECTLY: "The planet was here LONG before us and will be here LONG after us. It has gone through earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, plate tectonics, asteroid collisions, ice ages and we have the audacity that some styrofoam and plastic will KILL the planet?? The planet will shake us off like a bad case of fleas."

 

It is all a f*ckin' money grab. Just ask Canada and the upper Midwest states about global warming!!

Putting aside the fors or againsts of cd packaging, global warming is a reality so get used to it!

 

 

Agreed...just because the weather where you live hasn't turned from snowy cold winters to Florida type weather doesn't mean that Global Warming isn't effecting the planet...at the moment it isn't that bad anyway, but if as predicted planet wide temps rise by an average of 3 degrees or more believe me you will notice the difference.....even if it's just the cost of food which will rocket when the food belt areas around the globe turn to dust....

I think it's a total scam!!!

So we would rather use trees to make a cardboard sleeve, than to make an all plastic jewel case because the landfills are filling up with them? :unsure:

Yeah!

It makes sence to me!!!

 

What we really need to do is worry about who's not afraid of dropping the big one!!! :yikes:

If that happens, who cares if we recycle or not :unsure:

I'm not a THE END IS NEAR type of guy, but think about it!!

Global Warming has been happening for 1000 years now. It's just the cycle. Next it'll get colder because of some other happenstance. It's all cyclical. It is not the product of mankind.

Global warming is caused by too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere...has this happened in the past, definitely but this time it's on us not nature...

 

I know this is a 'hot button' subject for a lot of people so I'm not trying to push my views on anyone, there is plenty of literature about this that explains everything a lot better than I ever could...just google it... the majority of scientists believe it to be true so I'm not going to argue with them.... :)

And who's paying these scientists for these opinions? It's all about the money, man. The Earth has been through much more than some smoke. Does what emissions we pump out help? No of course not but its not the end-all.

More than likely, it's cheaper to make a CD sleeve out of cardboard (especially if it's recycled cardboard) than making an all new one out of plastic.

Which is my point!

It's cheaper for them, but not for us!! :thppt:

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
