    Heh…Rob Zombie! My 6th grader wants to go see him at the Tabernacle and I want to take him. Would that be wrong?

  2. *Christopher says:

    Who’s Rob Zombie? Don’t you love it when you can get away with a no-shave day…

  3. LutherPunk says:

    ROb Zombie is the founder of the band White Zombie, of late 80’s early 90’s industrial fame. He went solo in the mid-90’s. His discs are like horror movies, telling stories of vampires, demons and other fun monster types. His latest claim to fame is that he wrote and directed two films: House of a Thousand Corpses (which was pretty good), and The Devil’s Rejects (not so good).

    I think it sounds like a great bonding experience!

    *sigh* Speaking of the Tabernacle, I miss the Masquerade…saw my first Thrill Kill Kult concert there…

  5. Derek the Ænglican says:

    Oh–and what I really hate is that I washed my hair this morning and it looks like crap–looked a lot better yesterday when I hadn’t washed it… Guess I should reconsider the Anastasia school of hair maitenance… 😉
