Jack Black And Monsters of Heavy Metal Star In New Computer Game [18 Jun 2009|10:17am]


The voice and persona of Ozzy Osbourne, along with several other monsters of metal, will feature in a new computer game called Brütal Legend. The music-themed action adventure will be released in October by Electronic Arts in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 formats.

The plot centers around the character of Eddie Riggs, the world's best roadie who works for the world's worst heavy metal band. Named after Iron Maiden's mascot, Eddie The Head, Eddie Riggs is played by School of Rock star Jack Black, of the comedy rock band Tenacious D. His character roams a '70s rock fantasy land created by games legend Tim Schafer (Grim Fandango), doing battle with a motorcycle-mad bassist called Kill Master (played by Lemmy Kilmister) along the way. Lita Ford, Rob Halford and Tim Curry also feature in the game, which is played to a pumping metal soundtrack.

Sounds like it rocks but will you actually have fun playing the game? Click HERE to read Hit Play's preview.

Download full Foo concert - 4/3/96, Toronto - rare performances and early foo [05 Oct 2008|09:38am]
[ mood | hungry ]

I uploaded a full Foo Fighters concert from '96 (4/3/96, Toronto) for the foo fighters bbs, but decided I'll share it as well.

This show has some rare performances...
*Chicken Derby (aka My Poor Brain)
*Satan's in the Manger jam
*Floaty (Petra on vocals)

It also has a lot of early foo and pocketwatch stuff... e.g. winnebago, butterflies, podunk, gas chamber, etc.

Here are my other full concerts. I can upload them on a per request basis (since they take a long time to upload). It's not just all foo (tho mostly):

Rock Music Community Open to Public [24 Nov 2007|07:10pm]
I was invited to this rock music community a while back. At the time, the site was by invite only, but it's now open for anyone to sign up. Here's the site: http://www.allrespect.com/

It's pretty cool and let's you find other people who share your same taste in music. You can also get music news and find others going to the same concert shows. You can even add a little form to your LJ page to compare your visitor's taste in music with your own. I got one on my LJ if you wanna see.

Anyway, I'm rambling... just thought I'd share this with the community! Later.

Go to Concerts? [03 Sep 2007|05:54pm]
[ mood | mischievous ]

Another update for what is becoming one of my frequented sites, www.AllRespect.com. They recently added a new Concerts feature. The idea is for you to find other concert goers who are attending the same concerts and then share videos, mp3s, photos, etc. from that show.

The feature is not really being used, but I think it's a good idea, so I'm helping spread the word here. Anywhere, there are still some more invites left to join the new music community. Here's the link:

Enjoy, folks.

Cool Rock Music Community [28 May 2007|03:56pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Hey all,
I thought you may be interested in this new site, AllRespect.com.

It's a music community for people to find others with the same taste in music (mostly rock/alternative from what I see). You can also create your Music Compatibility Test to add to your LJ for your visitors to check how similar their taste in music is to yours. Check out mine on my journal.

Anyway, the site is still in beta and by invite only. However, they have a couple promotions going on -- one for LJ users (lucky us, eh?):

You can read a bit more about the site (clearer than what I'm explaining) here:

Here's my page if you get bored:

So in an attempt to boost this fandom, I wrote a fandom overview so I could rec on crack_van. It would be great if you could read it, proof-read it, and tell me anything you liked, disliked, think should be changed, think should be added, etc.

Also, the wonderful shiakuu_hitome is hosting a Fic Exchange at sor_ficexchange, if you are interested.

How great is it that this community is so active?

Alright, found more downloads. This time from the Foo Fighters:

I've already downloaded 3 concerts and some 93' demos. (Note: most of the downloads on the Foo Fighters bbs are from yousendit, so they will expire.)

There will also be more mp3s to be uploaded.
