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.

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!!

    • Yeah even though I have this already I picked up the deluxe for the bonus tracks...all 11 of em  
    • Rest In Peace Love the Lionsheart stuff..the debut is classic
    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook
