Sugar Plum #LINKFROGGING
Jibbies & Loond celebrate upcoming new releases from Orange Goblin, Truckfighters, and The Shrine; lament Lemmy’s up and down efforts to stay healthy, Dan Lilker’s retirement, and IHOP taking over a big chunk of the old Limelight; and generally bitch about the general suckfest that is the Grammy’s, particularly the slight of Jeff Hanneman during In Memorium. They also express their joy at the fine pairing of Goatwhore and 1349 on this year’s Metal Alliance tour, and their willingness to revisit headliners Behemoth with open minds and metal hearts.

#LinkFrogging...is gonna laugh at you.
In the wake of the untimely and sad passing of Jeff Hanneman; the question begs to be asked as to what is the future of SLAYER? And for that matter; what is the future of the Big Four of American Thrash? I find it interesting and disturbing that out of all the surviving original SLAYER members; that only estranged drummer, Dave Lombardo, has made any public comments. I hope that Tom and Kerry will have something to say on the matter soon. I also hope that they will have e...
I’m pretty sure it’s still too soon for me to write this, but I can’t put it off; reminded anew of the foolishness of putting anything off. I saw Slayer more times than I can easily remember, though nowhere near as many times as some of my more devoted brothers. Appropriately enough, given the brotherhood within both the band and the metal community as a whole, almost all of my most vivid memories of Slayer, and through them Jeff Hanneman, are shared with others.
There was th...

‘Tis the season…for resurrection! And though the big guy and his boy get most of the glory this time of year for pulling it off in miraculous fashion, they’re certainly not alone in their efforts. You need look no further than this week’s links for evidence.
Take DC Comics for instance, they tried to breathe new life into their entire line with ‘The New 52’ boondoggle. And from the other side of the comic book aisle, Pixar’s going to take a stab at br...

Al Davis died this morning at age 82. I grew up in Michigan in the 70s and 80s. It's always been tough being a Lions fan. As I've grown into an adult it's gotten easier (and the team might actually finally be better!), but as a kid there wasn't much to celebrate in the silver and Honolulu blue.
The first football game I actually remember watching was a contest between the Raiders and Patriots at night, and I want to say it was snowing. A precursor to the ...
