Band Photo: Danzig (?)

Glenn Danzig is organizing his own summer metal festival (think of it as Ozzfest lite). At this point, it appears that all Danzig's solidified is the name: the Blackest of the Black. All-important details like the lineup and dates are still being ironed out.

Danzig is a very strange character. I love him no less. I to have had the pleasure of meeting him, and I also got the same vibe. We [ or at least me] had a good time.

Blackdog ain't a stoner, Danzig was probably afraid of him, I bet Blackdog is about twice as tall as Danzig is.

Cool ! But let's keep the Napolean thing under wrap's.People keep trying to tell me I have little man's syndrome when in fact it's just that I'm not much of a sh** taker.Alot of people hate me for it obviously.I just can't seem to bring myself to care though.You know the old saying "I may walk softly but I carey a big stick".I forget which president saide it first (it was eventually popularized amongst young kid's by Bugs Bunney)but that's my basic personality.Atleast till people get to know me.

Hieght doen't defy a person. It shouldn't matter. Don't get me wrong I'll pick on those who are small, and stay on the good side of someone who's tall or big. One of my friends who's like 3'8 earned the nick name ''Yoda''. I love it. Feel sorry for the girl however, she's like f***en 18.

I know how that is Johnisgod, I've got a frined, he's eighteen and he's about 4'11." He's got no problem with it, only when he has to change a lightbulb or two.

But man, he f*cking rocks on bass. ROCKS!

Finally Blackest of the Black is back. The last one got cancelled one week before it came to my town, I was so p***ed. Hopefully they'll have some of the same bands scheduled as last time. (Mayhem, Death Angel)! That would kick ass.
