as for me…i continue to go into wcsb’s studios to learn buttons, previews, psa’s, turn tables, cd players, on air mic, and that rush has a ton of live releases, i had no idea, and i’m a rush fan…i guess i took the 90’s off..

as for wmms, i’m in this face book group that is a fan page for wmms in the 70’s and 80’s and it’s RIDICULOUS…hit after sucky ass hit is posted by the sheep who ate up those hits hook line and sinker in the 80’s…i remember those folks in high school, most were the jocks and up tight students who wouldn’t smoke pot. i post 70’s music like thin lizzy and ac/dc, the non hits, the good stuff. i wrote a post on there about the problem, not attacking, just pointing out and boy did some folks get panty twisted on me. i held my tongue so i wouldn’t get kicked off the page, but i can vent on here..i should post the fb people that are diligently ignorant on here and let you all fuck with them…but there’s probably some kind of law that would get me.. i will post the page so you all can join in and post GOOD stuff, i have the upmost faith that if you’re reading this, you probably can see past “jenny i got your number 876-5309”.

i got the new aftershock, “detonate” on auburn records yesterday in the mail. if you like power metal this is power metal at it’s finest, up and in your face. i was expecting average to good, needless to say it exceeded my expectations, it’s good to great. tough to pick the best tune out of the bunch, i’m gonna have to go with ‘ready to rock’ that’s the jam. can’t wait to see this stuff live and really in your face.
