The Bitch is Back V.2

Hood Metal

JEZUS CRIES. It’s been one helluva long hiatus with some big shit poppin’, but I’m ready to get it crackin’ once again in the hood. Amuse me a second as I run through some of said “poppage”. No, I didn’t say “poopage”, though, there was plenty of that as well.

Other than the usual winter time distractions: holiday gatherings, family skirmishes, grotesque levels of gluttony, public drunkenness, inappropriate snow sculptures and hours upon hours of fuggin’ shoveling, there were a few unexpected developments in the mix that distracted me from my beloved mistress known as Hood Metal. Most significantly, an old friend of mine being diagnosed with Leukemia right around Christmas.

I haven’t seen the kid since high school, but I held him in high regard back then and the news was an open-handed bitchslap to the face. Not really an, “OH MY GOD, HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN, I’M FEELING SO MANY FEELZ”, type of deal. I really didn’t know what to think. So I did what any man would when his penis isn’t telling him how to feel, I sprung into action… no pun intended.

I’m a hack designer and web developer as my full-time gig, so I whipped up some branding and merch ideas, threw up an online store to take donations, and got busy spreading the word. Also helped organize a benefit event and whatnot, which turned out to be a grand affair that gathered a ton of love and support for muh boy. It was the first time I truly used my powers for good instead of evil.

In addition, I’ve been biting off more than I can chew on the 9-5 front. Got a solid promotion at the full-time gig and have pecking away at some side shit, doin’ the big work. Despite it being a cruel, punishing cunt this year, my winter has been a productive one.

As you’ve come to expect, I’m not really going anywhere with this. I just felt like dropping a personal note. Before I last bailed, I picked up quite a few new likes on the ol’ Facebook, and hopefully a few new readers. One of the missions of this blog is to unite fans of aggressive music who don’t take the whole thing too seriously. The interwebz are already brim with dipshits in the bleachers contributing nothing and criticizing everything. Help Hood Metal stomp out the dorks. If you like what you read, please share with your BROs and sheBROs!

Actual metal talk on the way, so stay tuned.
