So A Blonde Walks Into A Restaurant With A Chicken Under One Arm And An Anvil Under The Other.
Yeah, so it was Saturday again. Busy night at work, same as every Saturday. Tomorrow is going to be busy too, and I don’t know if I have to work Monday or not. I hope not.
One of my co-workers officially has the most popular blog in this area. I shit you not, he actually won an award from a local entertainment paper for his blog getting the most votes in an online poll. He told me he didn’t win because he has the best blog, he just managed to sell a lot of people on the idea of voting for him. I dunno, I guess that’s how those poll contests work, right? I mean, it’s how presidential races are won so it should apply to online polls.
I’d be able to say whether or not he actually does have the best blog around here if I had seen any other blogs from around here. But I haven’t. I’ve just seen his blog, and then there’s this that you’re reading. Keep in mind, SUNBURNSCOLD wasn’t even in the popular blog contest the paper was running. SUNBURNSCOLD is way too avant and dangerous and punk rock for shit like that. Never mind that nobody asked me to be in the contest. Never mind that the only people who read my blog are one guy in Cleveland, two people in India and occasionally a couple of people from Nigeria and Poland.
But I tell you this-had I been entered in that contest I would have totally won simply based on my posting of the following video footage of the Melvins playing Hung Bunny into Roman Dog Bird live. This song, or rather two songs bookended, make up side one of Lysol-which I have written about previously as being, in my opinion, the Greatest Of All Melvins albums. This is a taste of what gave the Melvins the reputation, well deserved, of being the heaviest band in the universe. At least at a time when there weren’t so many other heirs to the throne once the whole doom/sludge thing picked up momentum. Still, Melvins do it best when they lay down the freight-train-losing-it’s-brakes-going-down-a-mountain-while-hauling-ten-tons-of-lead-anvils-sound and they are really in top form in this performance from last year.
