My Two Addictions This Season

I haven't been blogging much lately. No, I'm not addicted to Mafia Wars all over again...and no, I haven't joined the Candy Crush Saga mania either. Actually, I've been addicted two other things - The Blacklist, which airs Monday nights on NBC, and reading post-apocalyptic and dystopian novels on the Kindle Fire HD that I received for Christmas.

On the Blacklist, I really love James Spader and how he plays his character Raymond "Red" Reddington. He is so good at playing this international criminal, former government agent. There's also a really consuming curiosity about his relationship with Elizabeth Keen, a rookie FBI profiler, that he chose to work with as a condition for his "surrender" to the FBI. Everyone wants to know if he's secretly really her father. And what about her husband, Tom (played by Ryan Eggold)? Now we're finding out that he isn't who he has been pretending he is all this time. This series is really addicting!

And about my Kindle Fire HD...I'm gonna get back to reading now.  I finished reading The Bar Code Tattoo (by Suzanne Weyn) yesterday.  By the way, the thought of a society's people being required to get a bar code tattoo to be able to "survive" is a very scary thought.  Think of how scary society was in George Orwell's 1984 book. The Bar Code Tattoo is even scarier.  Anyway, I'm going to read the next book in the series (The Bar Code Rebellion) and see what happens...

Z-Rock Metal Militia

I wonder how many other metalheads still have their Z-Rock Metal Militia tags.  I can't remember exactly when I got these but it was probably in 1990 or 1991.  There was this rock music station I used to listen to  called "Z-Rock" whose slogan was "If it's too loud, you're too old."  They played mostly heavy metal music.  I was really into a lot of Guns N Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, Skid Row, and Motley Crue back then (and still do, by the way!) so it made sense for me to join the Metal Militia.  

But you see, we didn't have Internet or Email back then so it's like we could only communicate by phone or postal mail (other than over the radio station, that is!).  I don't know what happened then but I guess after I moved from Hawaii to the mainland US, I lost touch with Z Rock.  Next thing you know, the station was no longer available and I didn't have a metal militia to belong to anymore.  :(

I've kept my membership dog tags, though, as you can see.  Over 20 years and I still have them!!!  Do I rock or what?!!!  LOL!

Nine Inch Nails Parody

If you ever listened to Nine Inch Nails, you'd get this parody. I think it's so funny it's true! I wonder what Trent Reznor thinks about it?
