Surviving Mayhem

Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival continues to fill the void that Ozzfest left by bringing heavy music acts across the country for a summer tour. The 2012 lineup in the OKC stop boasted a bit of the old, a bit of the new, and a lot of awesome. Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, Motorhead, and As I Lay Dying rocked the main stage this year in what turned out to be a “hot” show in several ways. You know I wouldn’t miss it…so with my trusty cohort, Dr. Drewcifer, and media equipment in tow, we…continue reading →

What I heard, and could kinda see, was Tenacious D!

I say "kinda" because as a short man, being in the pit amongst tall people, the only way to see well is by holding my camera above many heads; but that didn't hinder what I'd say was a great concert. The D opened the night playing the title track from Rize of the Fenix on what appeared to be a bland stage. Halfway through the first song their trademark "Fenix" was erected, transforming the show and becoming the backdrop for a…continue reading →

Cody on moving to NYC (blog 4)

Misconceptions (The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place) As a follow-up to my advice post about living in NYC, I felt the need to throw in some more personal advice to anyone seriously considering moving to a city like NYC.

Here are two of…continue reading →
