Applesauce and Ice Cream

Well so much for doing anything exciting for the second half of the holiday...

Here I am in the living room typing this on Optimus, and in a lot of pain. There'll be no partying tonight, but that's okay because in all honesty, I prefer to spend my New Year's Eve inside where it's quiet and comfortable. Never was in to big parties that take place at someone's house or the town square.

I am recovering from my wisdom teeth surgery yesterday morning. My dentist almost decided not to do it because I nearly gagged getting used to the laughing gas, but I told him it was a normal reflex and that I would eventually relax, so he took all 4 of those teeth out, plus did a few fillings. I was awake but less alert during the surgery, completely tuned out watching Cinderella on the ceiling TV and listening to my iPod on shuffle. Most of my friends who have had it done claimed they were asleep.


It played for me some Megadeth and Lordi, and then "I Rise You Fall" score from Transformers Revenge of the Fallen. "Enchanted" by Taylor Swift also started playing after that, which was one of the first songs I dedicated to Optimus Prime. He gave me strength to get through this, and even though I was daydreaming, I could tell when they were removing those teeth, and when the fillings were being done. To be honest I felt like the extractions happened so fast, like the time I had one extraction while I had braces.

I hate fillings so much but I'm used to them, even though I try to cut back on junk food and brush better, I still get them.

My jaw hurts like hell right now, and I spent my entire morning after the surgery yesterday, biting on gauze and the rest of the day having a Harry Potter marathon.

But hey, I can eat ice cream, applesauce, puddling, and other mushy shit. Hoping it's safe for me to have mashed potatoes with gravy for lunch today, as I'm kinda reluctant to eat anything too hot yet. According to my mother, potatoes are loved by those on her side of the family, so I've inherited the potato crave!

Good news is the stitches started to clot by midday and as of this morning, I have not had any minor bleeding.

I think today I'm going to continue watching Harry Potter as I only have Deathly Hallows Part 1 & 2 left to watch. When the books were made into movies, I personally think it was the only series that pulled off the two part conclusion well. I have read the books (actually I binge read them) years ago.

It took all day for the local anesthetics to wear off and I left the dentist's office with chipmunk cheeks. The worst part of those drugs is when they are first administered because they really hurt.

Even my brother was kind enough to get some stuff I needed once I was home, and due to his kindness, I shall return it if he ever has to get his removed in the future.

Also when I'm feeling a bit better, I will do the final edits to the next part of Emi Takori's story and my latest mobile game addiction. Till then, I think I'm going to continue my marathon.

Battle Ready for the Third Uprising

WARSAW RISE!!!!! .......and cue the epic riff!

Well, here I am post-gig after Sabaton last night with a sore throat but a happy heart. It felt like only yesterday that I scored a ticket and the gig came up so fast. I had placement to focus on and almost forgot that it was happening until I had more free time. 
I greatly looked forward to seeing them as they are one of those bands holding a special place in my heart, and now, it's my third time. I spent the whole morning and afternoon doing homework, and when I ran out of things to do, I found myself lying around staring at the ceiling waiting until it was close to the time where I could get ready.

Yes it is officially a tradition, I will always wear the complete gear to every Sabaton gig from now on. Fully prepared for battle! Actually, earlier that day I had a nice conversation with whoever runs their Facebook page (probably the webmaster...I think his name is Krister, or maybe it's someone else). I commented saying I was wea…

Sexorcism Era Masks - Detailed Review

As promised, I was going to wait until we received more pictures of Lordi's new look so I could talk about them in a little more detail.

Now, we've got them, and the close-ups look great, so here we go:

OX 



Hell on Hooves for sure! OX has definitely been outdone for this era. Some of us are comparing him to Krampus or the devil himself. I love his horns; they kind of have a resemblance to a Qunari and I think these are closer to perfect than ever. The dreadlocks are still there but look even better now that they've got skulls on them. Makes him look like he has pigtails almost!

Making him red this time was a bold move of Mr. Lordi when he was designing the costumes. Now OX truly looks like the Hellbull! The fur is also a staple part of his look, even though he's had it before, I like it more than previous eras. It would be a killer to see him live like this.

Amen



Our ancient assassin. I felt like not much about Amen had changed until I got a better look. The shape of the…

Lordi - Sexorcism Track by Track Review

It's time Monstermaniacs, another album released by the band I cherish deeply, I have not done one of these since 2016 and I want to do them more often, because I love what I do.

Lordi's back and just as the way I love them. I remember the first time I saw the title for the album: Sexorcism, along with its track list, I was worried the band was becoming more pornographic. No, they're not actually, Lordi's been doing this all along. What's funny is that in a recent interview on SoundCloud with Mr. Lordi, the album isn't really controversial, that's just the media talking.

But enough of that, I was lucky to have my copy of the CD arrive on the day of release date, so I spent my afternoon listening to it and wow, it was actually better than I expected! So, without any further ado, let's talk about the album track by track.



Sexorcism

So, let's start with the title track, I felt like this one served as an appropriate intro with the priest chanting the word…
