    LEMMY (Netflix) – I love that they have Ozzy talking about Lemmy… I wonder what a conversation between the two of them would sound like. Interesting story about a surprisingly accessible rock legend.

    Record Store Day 2011

    by  • 4/16/2011 • music • 0 Comments

    I’m not now, and have never been a Record Snob. I don’t care how the music comes to me, I just want to hear it. That’s one of the reasons that I actually dislike Record Store Day and some of the artists who seem to sit back and giggle with glee as they make record […]

    Busiest part of 2010 still ahead

I’m still considering going back to Vancouver for a session of film overdose with the Vancouver International […]

I followed Kim’s link to her project, and then looked around for other interesting projects.

    Heavy Metal Middle East

    by  • 6/25/2009 • music • 0 Comments

    Heavy Metal in Baghdad. I wasn’t sure about this film, especially with the Vice Magazine connection. I was a bit worried that this would be some sort of hipster bullshit ironic crap. I was pleasantly surprised by the film and the story it had to tell; metalheads are pretty much the same everywhere, but these […]
