birthday / money

ok, regarding the last entry….i get into my car, flip on WNCX classic rock and what do i hear? pink floyd ‘money’. what is up with that…now i’m gonna be old and turn 51 this week, september 4th, and i like yellow cake with chocolate frosting, and at 51 i started trying to figure out how many times i’ve heard money in my life, has to be in the 100,000’s if not a million. thank god i had the panacea in my cd player, saxon ‘denim and leather’ and they ask you where were you in 1979? i  know where i was …here’s saxon, denim and leather….no more money.

so…i’m driving listening to our classic rock channel as usual, (if not angel, ufo, or maiden cd’s) and one of the classic rock high rotation songs comes on…money, by pink floyd. now the dark side of the moon is genius and money is great but i think that was the first of the one too many times hearing it for me today. as far as floyd goes, it’s a classic rock station, play something off of ‘animals’ for christ sake…but no, it’s money yet again. i wonder how many times a week they play that song…needless to say a ufo disc got popped in my player.

i scored big time yesterday with a book purchase. i was at the best toy store in the world with my pal renee, big fun, and came across the book “the art of metal”….how perfect is that? close second to my other book purchase this year (see july 29th up date) i have a pictures below of four of the pages i opened two randomly, picturing a BOC, scorpions, kiss, ufo, aerosmith, and ad/dc covers. there is so much stuff in it it’s hard to digest. the problem for me is that they cover so much, they can’t cover one band very much…would have loved to see more black sabbath and judas priest and ufo. they did give some a lot of coverage though to merciful fate iron mainded, along with the entire black metal and trash and death metal chapters. there’s 8 chapters broken up nicely, i skip the nu metal chapter. the forward is by lemmy, and is published by voyageur press….a must have for the metal head, the art is amazing for the most part, they did a great job.
