5/10 … So seven university students travels to a summerhouse for some vacation. When they arrive in the small village we ofcourse get the generic wierd, dirty service store clerk, and I feel I’m already losing interest. But okey, lets continue, maybe we get some good effects and some nudity. But no, not even that. More or less just red colored water and apperent CGI sharks. So some nudity then? Not that either, just a quick side boob. A pretty good jump attack by a shark though.
Imagine this. It’s 1936 and you’re a teenager in Hitler’s Germany. Membership in the Hitler Youth has just become mandatory, but you say no fucking way because fuck that Nazi bullshit. What do you do? Answer: you become a pirate. –On This Day in History, Shit Went Down: October 25, 1944– At the time, you […]
During the 1970’s, several Japanese soldier that had continued to struggle for years after the end of world war II where discovered on various islands. Sergeant Shoichi Yokoi had continued to hide in the thicket on the island of Guam until 1972. In December 1974, Private Teruo Nakamura was found on the Indonesian island of […]
9/10 … The album goes straight to my heart after listening to it just once. After 3-4 times the songs grow even stronger Some stand out songs for me is Ghosts, If I was the priest such, Letter to you and the final I’ll see you in my dreams. But Ghosts has sailed up as my big favorite on the record. There is a lot of what core E Street Band is, the structure, strong melody, a chorus that sticks, hammond organ, acoustic piano and tha compact rock sound.
Colonialism fucked Africa in every hole. In his 1961 book The Wretched of the Earth psychiatrist Frantz Fanon described colonization as not only a crime against humanity, but having an overwhelming negative effect on the societal mental health of the colonized, who are viewed as little more than animals by the invaders. The author described […]
This is Czeslawa Kwoka, a 14 year old a Polish girl. She died in the Auschwitz elimination camp on February 18, 1943 with a syringe of phenol in her heart. Shortly before the execution, she was photographed by the prisoner Whenm Brasse. I can look at her photo for hours. The face of a terrified […]
Incest, rape, adultery, exhibitionism, prostitution, homosexuality, abortion, mate swapping, bestiality — it’s all there in the book held sacred by three of the world’s major religions. Originally published to reveal the hypocrisy of fundamentalists’ attempts to censor and suppress the kind of material found throughout their own scriptures, The X-Rated Bible quickly became the American Atheist Press’s most notorious and best-selling book. It garnered media attention due to its title, subject matter (with chapters like “Lot Knocks Up Both His Daughters, ” and “Noah Gets Drunk and Exposes Himself”), and association with publisher Madalyn Murray O’Hair, famous atheist and publicity hound. This redesigned, corrected, and expanded edition will reintroduce the controversial publication that unblushingly confronts the dirty parts of the Holy Bible.
In the early hours of February 4, 1999, a 23-year-old Guinean immigrant named Amadou Diallo (born September 2, 1975) was fatally shot by four New York City Police Department plainclothes officers: Sean Carroll, Richard Murphy, Edward McMellon, and Kenneth Boss. Carroll would later claim to have mistaken him for a rape suspect from one year earlier, a claim never confirmed by objective evidence. The officers fired a total of 41 shots, 19 of which struck Diallo, outside his apartment at 1157 Wheeler Avenue in the Soundview section of the Bronx.
In another time, and/or being another skin color and gender, Phillis Wheatley could have lived a rich and happy life because of her talent. But being an enslaved Black woman caused her to die young and poor, because America is only the land of opportunity for a select few. –On This Day in History, Shit […]
6/10 … Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride and Dilshad Vadsaria … what’s not to like with that amazing cast? It’s pretty funny, I think I laught out loud 2-3 times, especially the early ”dumb as fuck” conversations between the bad guys Dwayne and Travis 😂. But in the end it never reaches the heights that I thought it would.
Yes, it was 6 years ago this happened, but it’s worth bringing up from time to time since the worlds largest paedophile organsation still exists and probably will until the end of days. NEVER FORGET More than 100,000 child porn videos and photos have been found on the computer of former Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who is […]
This is one of these event in history I could cut off my right hand arm to have been at. Ozzy and Judas Priest are 10/10, I liked Mötley Crue’s first two albums before they got to much ”hair metal”. Their set here is also good 8/10, although Vince Neils singing here doesn’t really sound perfect. Quiet Riot, Triumph and Van Halen are not really for me so I haven’t even watched these. Scorpions had very energetic live shows during the 80’s, but unfortunatly there doesn’t seem to have surfaced any source of their show from this day.
10/10 … Hooooooly f**k, I can’t believe it’s been 50 years since this masterpiece and milestone in Heavy Metal history was released. It’s ofcourse a 10/10 when it comes to the music, but also a 10/10 when it comes to this edition. THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT … a beautiful thick box with a poster, a fantastic hardbound book featuring interviews with all four band members, rare photos, and memorabilia. Also included is a replica of the tour book sold during the Paranoid tour late 1970. Simply amazing. At the end of this month Motörhead will release a Super Deluxe Version of “Ace of Spades”, so we will see if this stands as the crown-jewel of deluxe packaging of a Metal album, but it will definitely be hard to beat. I mean 5 LP’s, with apart from the actual album, 2 live concerts … nice!
8/10 … I love Black Sabbath and I love Ozzy’s early solo stuff up until the early 90’s somewhere. I haven’t even listened to the two latest solo albums since I get a feeling he wants to “be with the times” and have made some “big pant metal” for the only sake to get on the top charts. For fuck sake on the latest record he had guest artists such as Elton John, Post Malone and Travis Scott (?!?!?!?!).
I have a hard time imagine another artist besides Ozzy and Mötley Crue that have lived the same rock’n roll life to its fullest as they have. Maybe Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) and Motörheads Lemmy. Usually I’m not that interested in artists private life, but it’s funny as hell listening to his escapades.
9/10 … This could be called the bands real debut, since they where extremely disappointed with 1974’s “Rocka Rolla”, both the mixing, cover art and marketing of the album. They and most fans count this as the real debut album.
More or less all tracks are gold, with opening track “Victims of Change” as the crown jewel. “Dreamer Deciver” feels very different than later live versions, not in a bad way, just different. “Tyrant” is another of the top tracks, it gives me goosebumps everytime I listen to it. I think it’s only “Epitaph” I could do without. A milestone that is a must in every metalfans collection.
