Today is a very sad day. I really am trying to come to terms with the news I heard when I turned on my phone and saw a Facebook message that readd, "I don't know if this is true, but check this out!"

I read the message and a terrible feeling came over me to find out that the leader of GWAR has passed on.

I have a unique history with this band.

Yes Metalhead Ned, we get it...you love the band Mushroomhead! Hell yea I do! They very much have that KISS mentality to them, "More bang for the buck." While KISS is usually around $50 for a ticket, Mushroomhead is only about $15 for a ticket. One year they did a Meet & Greet package that I had to take advantage of.

This Winter is Just The Worst Thing Ever

I used to sit in my circle of friends as they would chat about the accidents they have been in, and I would usually say as I 'knocked on wood,' "I have never been in an accident!"
