Give the site a moment to load all of the links. It takes a bit for my computer & it crashes on Kim’s cell.

Metal fans get a bad reputation because of the music we like. Not every metal fan or band member is a flat out metal head though. The metal musicians and fans are some of the kindest people I’ve met. I’m in a wheelchair. When I go to The Exchange to see a local metal band play, TONS of people stop & say hello, shake my hand, chat for a bit, help me out if needed, hold open a door, etc. Nobody goes out of their way to be harmful to anyone. There’s a bad seed in every crowd so I don’t necessarily hang around those people. The people I know that play or listen to aggressive music won’t judge you on what you listen to for music. They know others can instantly judge them by their metal music. I’m not afraid to tell anyone what I listen to. Here’s a few examples of what I listen to….

It’s subjective. A song does not have an influence as to who you are! You like it because you like it, so why hide it? The only music fans I’ve met who don’t consider their music offensive are country music fans. It doesn’t bother me, I do enjoy a small sampling of country music here & there. It’s a lot like extremely heavy metal. Good for a bit, but not for more than one album a day. Slayer is as offensive as a Southern twang country artist to me! Kim was listening to “The Help” audio book on the way to who knows where, too much twang for me. I’m not trying to rattle anyone’s cage in particular, these are just off the top of my head examples……

I did it! I watched “Silence of the Lambs” with Kim. I put on my big boy pants, sucked it up & just asked Kim to hold me when I got scared. I haven’t watched that movie in over a decade. It’s not that freaky of a movie, but when they show Anthony Hopkins in a straight jacket & the brown muzzle/mask, I pee a little then curl up into the fetal position. Anything with Anthony Hopkins in it gives me the HEEBIE JEEBIES now! Blue Jays play a late game tonight. I’ll likely sit through a sequel, then watch the game?

I’ll tell you right off the bat, I DON’T VOTE OR FOLLOW POLITICS OR & here’s why. I get a kick out of watching greasy scum bags doing commercials to “help” their campaign by telling you the opposition can’t do this or that. Whoever’s commercial it is will promise you the moon though. I have 0 desire to sift through the nonsense & ballyhoo as to who I’d vote for. When politicians can honestly tell me how & what they can do then I’ll consider voting? Here’s 2 examples of what I’ve seen right out of the gate……
