"How could you?! Haven't you learned anything from that guy who gives those sermons at church? Captain Whatshisname? We live in a society of laws! Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well, I didn't hear anybody laughing, did you? Except at that guy who made sound effects. Makes sound effects and laughs. Where was I? Oh yeah! Stay out of my booze."

Some Kind of DVD

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster is being released on DVD today. I could’ve sworn one of us had posted about this movie before, but it looks like we only posted about the concert.

I’m sure others can comment more (I’m thinking of one post-challenged person in particular), but I thought this was an excellent presentation of the difficulties Lars, James and Kirk were (and are) trying to work through, all with the goal of continuing to deliver their unique brand of metal mayhem. This wasn’t some kind of watered-down publicity stunt, it seemed to be an honest look at some real people. For an outsider to the world of metal, it was a great introduction to the band, but I know that long-time fans also enjoyed the movie immensely as well.

  1. It’s not so much that I’m post-challenged, I just can’t remember my p-word.
