I have recently become addicted to Metalocalypse. For those unfamiliar it's a cartoon on adult swim about the world's greatest death metal band. So with everything that interests me I have been doing resceach on the show, as a result, become familiar with the world of death metal.
As you are well aware, because I don't let anyone forget, I lived in Norway for a while. I can sense some of you know where this is going. While in Norway I experienced a very laid back, an quiet culture.
Now for the colliding part, it would appear that Norway along with the rest of Scandinavia is the unofficial home of black death metal with one band in particular leading the charge. That band is call Mayhem. They have been around for a while now and have 3 members who are deceased. One of them killed himself. One of his band mates found him dead and took polaroids. One of pics ended up on the cover of Dawn of the Blackhearts. Another member killed a fellow band mate over money. My point in all this is that while I enjoy the cartoon and enjoyed Norway it boggles my mind that there is such a dark and brooding underside in Norway, that I discovered through a cartoon.

In other news Annie and I have been together 4 and 1/2 months now. Everything is going great and for the first time in a long time I'm happy.

Oh yeah and for those that care (if anyone) Morgan is getting married to a 40 something guy she met a couple of months back.

*Yeah, so, I'm editing Dave's post, Dave wants me to say that i made it more zazzy. this is Annie by the way, hi Kevin, Urda, and Jessie!

I too have just started watching Metalocalypse! I love it, though it's done what I always wanted CBN to do.

And you have a lady?? And she edits your writing and plays video games with you? That's awesome.

AND! I'm going to be in Maine next week. We should hang out.

Way to heavy for CBN, I always wanted to go almost dancy disco mashed with death metal myself.

I do have a lady. I keep her in a small cage only feeding her day old bagels and force her to edit my writings and play video games. I think they call it love. And yes we should hang out.
