Hey, gang, in case anybody cares, I joined the staff of Hardrock Haven as a CD reviewer. You can check out my biography/photo here: Hardrock Haven Staff Bio

 

And read my first review (Salute--"Heart of the Machine") here: Album review

 

I agreed to bang out 3 or 4 reviews per month, so I'll try to post here and let everyone know when my reviews have been uploaded to Hardrock Haven.

 

Now, as you were...which I'm pretty sure for Geoff means naked and surrounded by several large Japanese men with curiously shaved bodies.

Nice one mate. So, the dude in the pic? Uh, who's that creep? HAHA! :lol: Gosh that was a good one.

 

Nice one, mate. You're everywhere these days! Good to see. Good luck with it. Oh, and why do you hate your poor little kitty?

Nice going mate.

 

P.s. Did you get the new SHOWDOWN disc yet? After their last couple of great ones, this newie is pretty weak...

Yeah, I snagged it as soon as it came out. While not quite up to the standards of "Temptation Come my way" or "Back Breaker," I still think it's a pretty darn good metal album, and personally wouldn't rate it as weak. But The Showdown is just one of those bands I really like...something about them clicks with me. I thought the first 3 songs--"The Man Named Hell," "Heavy Lies the Crown," & "Bring it Down"--ranked up there with some of the band's best. Certainly got my head banging, anyway.

 

Interesting (or maybe not) sidenote: I had to submit a sample review for consideration before getting the Hardrock Haven gig, and I actually wrote a rough draft review of the new Showdown album. In the end I wasn't happy enough with it though (the review, not the CD) and ended up submitting a review for Shotgun Revolution: "Join the Revolution" instead, which resulted in me getting the job.

    • Defunding the cops was never the answer....there are a few cities where they are trying to make changes, such as adding an option to the 911 emergency number where you can choose 'a mental health issue' option which sends people (not cops) who are trained to deal with the situation....which frees cops up to do the work that they are trained for....
    • Yeah, that's why the entire BLM "Defund the police" movement was (and is) so fucking idiotic. The police need more assistance, resources, and training, not less.
    • The media and politicians are pro-police because the vast majority of the people they serve are pro-police and until that changes you will not see either group turn against the police....which is how it should be, the more difficult we make the job of policing, the harder it will be to get people to do the job so even if you are upset with how things are being done during the pandemic, maybe you should give the cops a little bit of understanding...
    • Pretty unlikely to get many fires this year with La Nina
    • I don't know how "firefighters" are defined or utilized in Australia vs. here in the USA, but presumably they are included because as first responders they may be called upon to rescue or render medical attention to people, and you wouldn't want the first responders to be giving Covid to them, or worse having a situation where either the recipient is forced into a position of declining medical assistance or the firefighters reluctant to render it. I actually agree with the mandatory vaccination policy in this case. 
    • In case anyone might have forgotten what a fucken dump Australia is right now, in a country that was ravaged by bushfires two years ago, volunteer firefighters are now required to be vaccinated to be able to provide their service. Many will not, so in an occupation where we were flying in firefighters from the US and Canada etc. at the peak of our issues to help out, we are standing volunteers down because they won't get vaccinated. Because christ almighty knows, that the last thing we want is for firefighters to be giving the fires they fight covid-19.  https://thewest.com.au/news/coronavirus/volunteer-fire-and-rescue-service-members-included-in-mandatory-vaccination-mandate-c-4564212 That story only covers WA, but I saw an interview today with a guy from NSW and as far as I understand it's a country-wide requirement?  I honestly just don't have the words to describe my thoughts on matters like this. Are we actually the dumbest fucking country on planet earth, or is shit like this happening in other countries?  Imagine honestly trying to excuse actions like this if we had fires like we did a couple of years ago and able-bodied, willing and experienced firefighters were sitting at home watching houses burn on TV because their stupid fucking cunt government thought that forcing a pointless needle into their arm was more important than the work these people do. Unbe-fucking-lievable.  
    • Here's my ability to read and interpret information. You say that you no longer teach your kids to respect police. You seem open in your statement "Fuck the pigs" You may say that in front of them. If you don't I'm sure they will pick up on it. Kids learn from their parents. I'm happy with my interpretation. It's sad that people can generalise so vigorously. I would put forward that a MASSIVE percentage of cops are good, if not great cops. we're looking at only a very few cops here who overstep and gain a lot of press. I know 3 people who have applied for the force. One got in, one didn't, one is in the process now. Their requirements are extremely high, and not adhering to just one part of the process 100% equals a fail. In the case of the person who didn't get in, she got through all the psych, fitness, etc, but didn't come across as confident enough in a phone interview, so that was it. Cops are legends.
