This is not my beautiful icon.

Rock of Ages

Watched VH-1's hair band retrospective today. Disappointing, as usual. Extreme was #39, and Queensrÿche didn't even make the list. But it (along with the fact that I got my turntable set up) convinced me to pull out this album, and Oh shit, I forgot just how hard it rocks. I'm not hardcore into hair bands, but I can sure go for some arena rock anthems/power ballads now and again. The thing is, I was just thinking about hair bands and the whole WE'RE HARDCORE but look we're sensitive here's a "ballad". All the hair bands were really wusses, we know now. *sigh* Even Motley Crue had ballads.

Who did they think they were f-f-foo-foolin?

Coincidentally; this was a good book.

Vedkar: Seriously
Vedkar: When I opened the sleeve on the train, there was a little pouch of indie fairy dust inside
