Reading and Listening

Finished The Heroin Diaries : A Year in the Life of Shattered Rock Star tonight. All I can say is – wow. It’s a dark and intense ride, and a very good read. Nikki Sixx just gained a hell of a lot of respect in my book, and I look forward to his next set of projects.

Bought the Puscifer CD today, and oh hell, Maynard has gone and done it again. Completely different sound than Tool and A Perfect Circle. Actually a track or two that will be GREAT at the club. Something that has replaced the Heroin Diaries soundtrack in my car CD player, which is no small feat considering how good that CD is.

Also snagged the Joy Division Collection that just landed, and hope to get the new Otep CD soon as well.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I’m not familiar w/ this music. Is it danceable, trance, electronic, moody, heavy metal, blues….? Curious.

    Let me see :
    Joy Division is old school Goth/Industrial
    Sixx:A.M. is decidedly hard rock, borderline metal
    Puscifer has me stumped – I want to call it Industrial Dance Sex Groove with strong Trance influences. But calling it that is like calling Tool just Metal or A Perfect Circle just Rock. Maynard has such depth in his lyrics and composition it’s hard as hell to classify. If Joey doesn’t have a copy Monday night, I might have it for him just so I can dance to it. *grin*

    Some things defy description or categorization but that’s the kind of stuff that’s usually the most interesting. I see if I can find that Puscifier one maybe in borders where they sometimes let you listen to partial tracks BEFORE you buy. Tanx! =)
