Thanks, Kat, for giving me a subject to blog about!! In her post yesterday, she asked what songs a person might select to go with the new vibrator that syncs with a music playing device. I offered “Loves My Cock” by Jackyl. This was her response:
“Tessie, I insist you blog about what's on your iPod. You're such a nice lady but frankly I suspect you have a lot of nasty hot-ass heavy metal melting your music files... lol Go Rockers!”
Get ready to laugh, everyone – I don’t have an iPod, MP3 player, or any other such high-tech device. I listen to music in the car, or on my stereo/cd player through giant headphones that cover my entire ears. And although I don’t use it often due to sound quality, I still have a working turntable and record albums!!
Now the “nasty hot-ass heavy metal” is dead on (so is the ‘nice lady’ if I’m having a good day)!! I’ve been a head banger since before the term existed. I listen to most genres of music, but loud hard-driving heavy beats, raunchy lyrics and potentially riot inducing messages have always been my favorites. It completely weirds people out since I definitely don’t look the part! Kinda like the whole being an Erotic Romance Author thing. The other day I scared the crap out of a co-worker when I started my car with the windows down and M&M blasted through the parking lot!
Going to concerts is one of my favorite recreational activities. There are certain groups or individuals I see every chance I get, but I also really enjoy discovering newer acts. My brother is my concert buddy, and nowadays the first thing we have to do is scope out people older than us before we can settle in and get our freak on. At shows like KISS, Motley Crew, Aerosmith, Tesla, Poison and Metallica, it’s not a problem. But it takes a minute longer at shows like Good Charlotte, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, BuckCherry and Rage Against the Machine.
In closing, please allow me to again mention Jackyl. They haven’t had a new CD in a while but still occasionally tour. A lot of people are unfamiliar with them, but if you like southern rock, I highly recommend checking out their stuff. A band that uses a chainsaw as an instrument, discharges weapons on stage, and uses the word jizz in a song should not be missed!!!! I’ve seen them 13 times in concert. Many years ago, after seeing them for the first time, I wrote a very eloquent fan letter that garnered me a back stage pass for life!!
Have a great weekend!
