UPON WORD OF YOUR PASSING WE SHALL ERECT A GOLDEN ALTAR IN YOUR HONOR UPON WHICH WE SHALL SLAUGHTER 70 VIRGINS
Good idea to have that shit READY. That said, my "people" tend to live well into their 80s, sometimes 90s, but you never know, there have been exceptions. Still, probably excessive to waste that many perfectly good virgins on my passing...I'll surely get burnt out on the whole thing by 20, maybe 25.
I caught up with the show around the time Cherubs were playing; some old guy was doing the show up until then. Good music always; I just wasn't driving, I was distracted by the cigarette lighter.
Mercyful Fate / King Diamond always prompts a positive reaction; historically, their best work seems to unite metalheads, punks and popsters alike. ... Also new Dark Blue | Mondo Macabro DVD | Black Panties | general accolades for black-metal-saturated set #2 | Solo Organ ...I enjoyed it all as usual, lots of exciting new and recent punk, grind/death, black etc.
Having a blast with WFMU's playlist-db image uploader; always been a lover of great album-cover art, and based on the positive listener response, I'll keep plugging that aesthetic identity into My Castle of Quiet's weekly cavalcade.
Thanks also for all your comments / contributions / participation—a lively comment board always helps to keep me thrusting forward, makes it feel like a party, a group interaction. To view the playlist, stream the archived audio and view comments, you can hear last night's full horrorcast™ by clicking above, on that somewhat disconcerting image from The Poughkeepsie Tapes, a faux crime documentary that was a seat-squirmer, even for myself, seasoned viewer of cinematic torment that I am.
Super-excited about our February at The Castle, with a maddeningly good lineup of live performances—starting next week, with a live, in-studio, in-the-moment set from Andorkappen (Lord Time/Harassor, KILT, Universal Consciousness Records)—it will be A TIME.
