Traditions in comics and music. July 13, 2010 Posted by Mookie
And so with Chris's death today I continue the tradition of killing people who win a named appearance in the comic via ConnectiCon's Webcomic Charity Auction. Chris won two years ago. This year's winner may not have such a long comic life span. Tee hee.

I love my metal, but it's not the only music I love. Stripped down rock and roll is another love of mine, and I want to turn you folks on to a couple of great rock bands I've been listening to.

Absinthe Junk is a great rock band headed up by the very lovely Blair, who is not only a phenomenal singer but also a good friend of mine. I've had the pleasure of listening to their album "Living Ghosts" and find it a solid listen from start to finish. My favorite tracks are "Commercialized Waste" and "Dragonflies in Hurricanes." Give this band your ear and you won't be disappointed.

I've mentioned Planetoid before but I feel compelled to mention them again. They performed at this year's ConnectiCon where I was able to pick up their album, "Shadow of the Planetoid." Their presentation is from the deepest reaches of outer space, but their music is deeply rooted in good old rock and roll. With classic, hard-driving riffs and a great growl in the singer's voice, this is an album I've been listening to since I picked it up.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
