A Review by:
The Dude on the Right

As the last track on this CD was playing, my secretary was getting into the music. It had a fun beat, kinda catchy, but she wasn’t paying attention to the lyrics. I asked her if she kinda liked this song, and she told me she sort of did. Then I told her the song was called “Fuckin’ An Animal.” At first she was appalled, then she remembered this was GWAR, and then she was just worried that somewhere in the lyrics it might mention a giraffe, since she loves giraffes (no, not in the way of the title of the song), so I checked the lyrics and much to her relief, I informed her things were pretty much kept to dogs, geese, and a moose.

Look, GWAR is GWAR, space aliens who also are very talented metal musicians, constantly fighting their enemies. Their CD’s and concerts usually try to tell a story, but mostly what you get is some great punk metal that, yea, might offend some, but if you get beyond being offended, you do have to admire some of the guitar work and just the balls-outness of the band. And if you also want a great time, check out their live show – it’s still one of the best times I’ve had at a concert. For what it is supposed to be, “We Kill Everything” does it all, and although this might ruin my credibility as a music reviewer, I’m giving it 95% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale.

That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!

A Corn Dog Quest, Good Beer, Free Food, Bad Rubbish, and GWAR is Coming

GWAR in concert.There is nothing like a corn dog from a carnival, festival, or a fair, and as a photo of Michele Bachmann eating a corn dog over the weekend seems to be stealing any corn dog talk I may have, during this episode of our “Weekend Wrap-Up!” podcast, I tell Stu about my and The BFF’s quest for a good corn dog, as well as some funnel cake, and fresh-squeezed lemonade. Stu’s weekend, although sans corn dog, was filled with corn difficulties, but with beer goodness, though not necessarily in that order. He relates to me the good times of hanging out with The Mystery Dude and also finding a new, nearly-favorite beer called Dark Horse, where, thanks to Mama Gotz going to some jewelry party, or some crap like that, he got to hang out at Tribes Ale House, partaking knowing he wouldn’t be driving home.

Stu finds out that kids eat for free sometimes at IKEA, I’m not excited about the Chicago Bears yet, Stu saw “The A-Team” movie on TV, most people, in reference to Carlos Zambrano of the Chicago Cubs, are saying “Goodbye to bad rubbish!”, I debate busting out of concert review retirement to see GWAR, and both Stu and I lament the end of the summer movie season.

Thanks for listening!
