Record Store Day 2014: Most Anticipated Releases

RSDCOM2010vectorLast year, I made a list of all of the Record Store Day Releases that I was most looking forward to which included some Prize Fighter Inferno, Coheed and Cambria, The Cure, Notorious B.I.G., Deftones, Blind Melon, Misfits/Lemonheads, Willie Nelson, and Patty Griffin, and while I didn’t get any of those other than the Coheed and Blind Melon/Misfits split, it was still a great experience and didn’t dull my excitement for this year. This year’s Record Store Day doesn’t have any releases that I absolutely must have, but it does have several that I’d like to get my hands on.

There are a great deal of records coming out this year for RSD. some hit or miss, but more awesome than not. If you want to check out the full list, you can go here because there’s no way I’m going over ever single one of them with you. So without further ado, let’s get into what I’m most looking forward to on Record Store Day 2014! (more…)


Eleven Historical Headstones

Joey Ramone Headstone

I was gathered amongst some companions earlier, and the topic of comic books and comic book creators came up. One of my favorites, Jack Kirby, was brought up in regards to the Fantastic Four and Dr. Doom, and I mentioned that Jack Kirby’s headstone is one of the few I’d want to visit of a, not necessarily pop culture icon or celebrity but more like a historical figure.

This got me thinking, what headstones would I actually want to make a point of visiting before I am placed in front of one, myself. I thought that this might make an interesting look at who I am and what inspired me the most as a human being. Morbid, I know, but it still seems like a decent idea. (more…)
