Trinkelbonker day

Trinkelbonkerday

I appreciate the Trinkelbonker crowd out there, I really do. And I thought that a small experiment would be kind of interesting. What would happen if some of you guys & gals decided to mention this blog on the same day through various media (Facebook etc)? A few words and a nod in this general direction, that sort of thing. Or maybe you could pick out a particular post from the past and link to that? I can see what´s going on in the stats so it would be very interesting to see what would happen if we had a go at this.

So come on folks, lets end August with a bang!

Nice Deep Purple MK3 shot on the cover of Record Collector (issue 444) right now – but the attempt to bring bands like Purple, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin into a genre called Stoner Rock is just idiotic. If bands that were influenced by the older generation wants to connect to them, then lets use whatever term that was used back in the day – don´t drag the classic bands down into some current scene that they would never be comfortable with to begin with. The classic bands never liked the term Heavy Metal, so why should they appreciate being called Stoner Rock? In the 90s, the media loved to call the old school bands Jurassic Rock, I mean, give me a fucking break. Today, we´ve all settled on Classic Rock, in one way or another. It´s not perfect, but we can live with it.

In the old days it was Progressive Rock, Rock, Hard Rock, and that was about it. Twenty years from now somebody is going to have another go at this, I guess it´ll be Space Rock by then…

Or perhaps it will be Untouchable Rock? Just don´t go there, it´s all been done…

Italeri is producing some of the best boxes of historic figures and American Infantry (American Independence War) in 1/72 is very good in my opinion. If I spot this set in 1/32 I´ll be all over it. But this will do.

Nice box art too, Italeri knows what they are doing.

Here´s one for the old library, “The Sexy Librarian´s Big Book of Erotica” (Cleis Press, 2014), a 350 page edition of erotic tales handpicked by editor Rose Caraway.

Got to love the cover.

The ongoing ecomomic collapse rolls on. Friends of this blog will have noted my warnings lately and I think I can say that I was right all along now. This weekend, I warned friends that this Monday would be a dark day, and sure enough…

Yesterday, former Gordon Brown adviser Damian McBride tweeted a warning to the general public that has been picked up by UK media (The Independent) and gone viral through the more informed alternative media (Drudge Report).

He writes…

“Advice on the looming crash, No 1: Get hard cash in a safe place now, don´t assume banks and cashpoints will be open, or bank cards will work”.

“Crash advice 2: Do you have enough bottled water, tinned goods and other essentials at home to live a month Indoors? If not, get shopping”.

“Crash advice 3: Agree a rally point with your loved ones in case transport and communications gets cut off, somewhere you can all head to”.

This warning is interesting because it comes from a guy that has worked with former British Prime Minister Brown, and I think it mirrors what the informed minority is thinking. This guy just happens to be closer to the elite than most of us.

I´ve heard experts say that this crash could be 20 times bigger than what we experienced in 2008 – if the petrodollar goes, that´s a given. When that happens, all bets are off. We may even look at war.

This is not an intellectual discussion any more, you need to get going now.

False flag

Falseflag

Author Henry Brown really ought to be discovered by the masses. In “False Flag” (Virtual Pulp, 2015) all hell is about to break loose and society is crumbling. What do you do, as a patriot, when you discover evidence that your own government is up to no good?

A post 9/11 novel for the clever reader, who understands just how dark our world has become.

Norskehjem

Got this in the mail today, Norwegian publication Norske Hjem (or Norwegian Homes), issue 4 2015. Turned out to be a fantastic magazine, certainly one of the best that I´ve seen in this genre.

Good to see.
