Metallica

I never really listened to Metallica before. And then, for some reason, when I started working here at the P-A-C, I began listening to Master of Puppets non-stop. I found that the music was perfect for programming; the wall-of-sound sound drowns out the constant politco-babble that surrounds me, and lulls me smiling into a proper code-trance.

So after wearing the Master of Puppets mp3s thin I decided to pick up another album. There was some controversy as to whether I should get Ride The Lightning or Kill Em All. I chose the former, and it kicks ass.

Anyhow, I picked up the album at Best Buy because until today Metallica was not available on the iTunes Music Store

Next paycheck I am going to reward Metallica by picking up another album…

Pablo, get the hell out of D.C., it sounds like it already has done irreversable damage to your hearing cortex brain thing.

nothing wrong with his brain thing - my little boy loves metallica - when we are driving around - which is pretty frequent -as daddy keeps the ipod - i channel surf and he pipes up his opinion - he really liked metallica's ONE - i dealt with it

"Darkness, imprisoning me,
All that I see,
Absolute horror,
I cannot live,
I cannot die,
Trapped in myself,
Body my holding cell"

Pablo's in D.C. and listening to this? Sounds perfect.

I'm Just saying that "Hip-Hoppity" Pablito is now living in the south. Not Texas south, but real life east coast hip-hop south and he is listening to Metal-Licka. I'm Just saying........

I'm more of a Slayer fan, myself.

I was all over it in High School. Before they were cool. Now they're just sell outs...you gotta go old school, baby. Kill 'em all!
Garage Day revisted. They do a misfit cover of "Die Die Die my Darling.' It rules...

true ... kill 'em all is a great flippin' album.

aaaaaaaaaaahhhh ... high school. it's not like i actually miss high school, but every now and then wouldn't it be great to still go driving around the lake super trashed and crashing cars just for the hell of it while james hetfield is screaming die! die! die! die! die ! die ! die! diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeee!

whew! good times ...

killy said...

you crashed cars? into what, might i ask?

I think that Master of Puppets is a wonderful album.

The earlier stuff is great, but it seems to have more of the "If you wern't there when it came out, then you missed it." not to say it isn't powerful.

I think that And Justice for All is the perfect follow up to Master. Another wall of sound that will transport you away from any situation.

The driving force of the Drummer Lars, so much grabs you by the hair and drags you along.

I spent many many a middle school/ high school day deeply emmersed in Metal-licka.

I think some graffiti I saw in Poland sums it up well.........."Metallica O.K."

Pablo said...

I remember the graffiti as

Metallica O.K!

OK killy ... here's the list
1. 1988 - passenger in a one-vehicle rollover mainly caused by inappropriately mixing alcohol and firecrackers in a moving vehicle with an inadequate understanding of the physics of rocket flight.
2. 1988 - riding shotgun when my buddy Tim crashed through the front glass wall of the Road Runner convenience store.
3. 1989 - crashed a pickup into a fence and telephone pole to avoid a head-on collision with an asshole driving on the wrong side of the road.
4. 1990 - crashed a '69 VW Bug because it couldn't jump as high as I thought it might.
5. 1990 - crashed my Datsun into Lake Jacksonville (off a ramp, no less!) to win a $200 dare.
6 and 7. 1990 - winner of 2 crash-up derbies in the Careys' cow pasture. the victory cars were a '75 Nova and a '68 Impala. We later drove a community-owned '69 Impala dubbed the StarCar Enterprise which suffered a grisly fate at the hands of Tim of Road Runner lore, but I wasn't there to witness its demise.
8. 1990 - stretched out across the back seat of a rolling bong when the driver fell asleep and we hit a tree. driver claimed the Pink Floyd was, "too mellow, man."
9. 1991 - hit a small tree at about 70mph when i fell asleep at the wheel and ran through a T-intersection.
10. 1991 - used my '72 Cutlass as an instructional device to teach a very angry old man that road rage isn't nice and that if he had just put his bony old middle finger up his ass where I told him it belonged then he wouldn't have required a wrecker to haul his truck to the junkyard. Totalled his truck. The cutlass sustained mostly cosmetic damage. ha! f*ck*r!

and for the record, Leper Messiah was like my theme song for crash up derby.
