Right off the bat, I have been looking forward to this Megadeth album which marks the return of David Ellefson. With the release of Anthrax’s Worship Music and Metallica/Lou Reed’s Lulu, Megadeth’s Th1rt3en was actually the one I was most looking forward to.

Before I get into Th1rt3en, I’ll clarify Continue reading

Remember when everyone thought that Metallica sold out for doing Fade to Black? What about when they released the black album? How about that time they all cut their hair off and started wearing eyeliner with Load and ReLoad? Let us not forget Jason quitting, the Some Kind Of Monster documentary,  and the album St. Anger.

So it comes as no surprise that Metallica are once again testing the tolerance of their fans. Continue reading

June 25, 1982 was the date that John Carpenter’s The Thing came out, I was seven years old, far too young to have been able to see The Thing in the theater. I do however, remember going to the theater to see E.T., which had been released June 11, 1982. As it turned out, the masses embraced E.T. and were caught off guard two weeks later when The Thing came out. This alien was not about to use a Speak and Spell to phone home. Funny, I think that The Thing had a better and longer lasting effect on me. It probably was a good thing that I didn’t see it back then, considering the damage that Alien and Aliens did. I am referring to a few months of nightmares, thanks dad. Just kidding.

My father seems to think that the Hawks version called, The Thing From Another World is better than the John Carpenter film. I will argue with him incessantly that the “Frankenstein Carrot Man From Space, On Ice” film can not hold a candle to the masterpiece that is Carpenter’s The Thing. Continue reading
