The force was strong with this one!
Made this one almost five years ago! Getting long in the tooth here as a captioner! LOL Polecat has been around about as long as I have, so we have made quite a few captions for each other. Nick definitely liked having his persona fight changes, so I tried to lay that one him as best I could, engaging in both a mixture of magic and hypnosis, which also happens to be a few of Nick's hot buttons. He also had mentioned that he liked Faith as a model, and this picture inspired the magical part of the storyline. Because of all those things, Nick really liked the caption,
I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had such wonderful weather, I was walking around in shirt sleeves from Friday through Sunday, including the GF and I hitting a flea market. I snagged a few vintage games for my Sega Dreamcast, and the GF found some interesting rocks and jewelry.
However, it looks like some more snow and possible ice storms are heading our way again! I guess its nice that the snow is just about gone now before we get more but UGGHHH!! That's right, I am complaining about the weather! LOL I am sure you'll hear me doing this again in July when its incredibly hot out so yeah! Why can't I find a place to live that is like 40-75 degrees year round?
Over the next week or two, I am going to highlight CD's that to me are highly desert island discs. You know the kind .. if you had an mp3 player and an infinite battery pack, these would be CD's that you would bring with you to survive 5-10 years or whatever. They are some of my favorites, and still interest me greatly. I guess it will depend if they are actually up on Youtube in their entirety, so if now, I'll try to throw a few links to song highlights. If you don't want to listen, that is fine with me .. but if you wish to get inside of Dee's brain a bit, it wouldn't hurt to play them through from beginning to end. You know you want to baby!
Here is the first .. Angel Rat by Voivod. I love quite a few of their albums, and Nothingface is probably my favorite, but this disc has such a diverse musical landscape and virtuoso performances, I had to include this one, Besides, not everyone is a metal head, so this is a bit less harsh. Like the New England weather, if you don't like the music, wait a minute, and it will change. Since they are French Canadian, and English wasn't a first language, the vocals in places (moreso in their earlier ear-ripping mode) sound alien and jarring, which adds to the effect of shifting time and key signatures. It was rumored that one of the musicians was in a coma as a child, and apparently he was in some sort of parallel universe in his mind. Many of the stories inside have wormed their way into the music.
I won't do this for all the others, but if you liked Angel Rat, or if you like heavier music, here is a link to the Nothingface CD. One of Voivod's biggest fan's is Dave Grohl of Nirvana / Foo Fighters. When he did a metal side project back in 2004 called Probot, he got the singer to do vocals for one of the tracks he specifically wrote for him. Probot is another great CD to check out!
I should be back on Tuesday with another caption and desert island CD!
