My Metal Emotions



Scott just sent me this very serious article about metal sign abuse. God I love The Onion.

Here's a taste:

"The metal sign, or 'sign of the goat,' has all but lost its impact as a token of respectful recognition for something truly 'rocking' or 'metal,'" SMC president Terence "Geezer" Butler said. According to Butler, members are upset that their sacred gesture is being used to acknowledge and celebrate "favorable but clearly non-metal events."

Metal Council Convenes To Discuss 'Metal Hand Sign' Abuse

Sadly I am a chronic offender of said frowned upon pratices. Notice my flagrant show of disrespect for the sign in even my profile picture. I have brought much shame on the metal community. My metal emoticons are so not metal...

i have misused the metal signs many a times. I use it to say hi people i don't want to verbally say hi too. The metal gods have surely frowned upon this abuse.

thoroughly unrelated...i haven't dabbled in anything metal since, oh, 1994? (shit, i'm old)

the photo of the whatever it is - weirdly medical-looking lighting fixture - on your photo bin link scares me. it really does. it is ominous and scary and it is looking at me.

that is all.

Hate to go off topic here but I had a question, and I sure as hell am not posting it in the one above.

Did you used to have a link on your blog to http://www.americanantigravity.com/? I swore I got it from here, but I am not sure now.

and I blame this guy for the metal sign
