Tink's weekly picture challenge is metal and K, and I don't want to admit that I have done my homework at the last minute because I completed it so brilliantly, but I have done my homework brilliantly at the last minute.
SO, I grab the Zep tee and the beagle and the missus grabs the camera, and we have heavy METAL. Famously, of course, a Rolling Stone review of Led Zeppelin around 1970 said it first in describing their music: "heavy metal thunder" (Steppenwolf had used the term in their song 'Born to be wild' the previous year, but that was talking about motorcycles, not music) I know all kinds of things, don't I? Like:
-my wife woke up this morning and tells me to look because she really DID get bird poop in her hair yesterday and she is upset about it and she wonders if she should wash her hair and its like "DUH!" and I am like "You're not getting any sympathy from me, that's NASTY!", which, when you think about it, isn't a very nice thing to say, and maybe I'll be sleeping down on the couch tonight with our old dog Buster....
Here is a rather raucous rendition of 'Immigrant's Song'
