Slipknot Denver Pepsi CenterKnotfest 2019 in Denver, Colorado.  Prior to taking stage at the Pepsi Center.

If you attended the Denver event, and seen a Hummer H2 Stretch Limo, ya might of seen me.  I went with two gym buddies, both Marines, both solid dudes.  The gym covered the limo.  Ate a handful of edible candies before I went in.  It was a great time!  My little souvenir below.

If they are coming your way, get your tickets.  Well worth it.  Great fucking show!

Slipknot – New Album – Tragic Loss

Words can not express the sadness in my heart for Clown and the loss of his daughter.  The passing of his loved one came as the band is getting ready to release their new album We Are Not Your Kind.

My hearts with you, your family, and the band.  Stay strong, you have a World full of maggots that are grieving along with you.

Maggot Re-Surfacing

I’m a Maggot.  When Slipknot hit the shelves, wasn’t but 500 miles or so away from their home town.  As kids, my friends and I, would blast our car stereos with “Surfacing” cranked at full volume.  We’d scare the hell out of old folks and others, not prepared for the throat ripping vocals.

Later in life, some good buddies of mine got signed by the Clown, and a record company just getting it’s feet wet with Metal.  Shitty ending for my friends in the band, but I was able to meet the Clown and Sid.  When I met the Clown, I hiked up my sleeve to show him my tattoo.  The tattoo is the lyrics from “Surfacing” as follows:

“Fuck it all! Fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don’t belong! Don’t exist!
Don’t give a shit!
Don’t ever judge me!”

He pointed to my tattoo, and said “If there is one message that we stand for, that is it right there.”

Be you.  Even if it’s not popular.  Always be true to yourself.

Battlefield V – Medic – The Art Of Dying

Music:  Gojira, The Art Of Dying

Although the developers have censored chat, avoided some of the most epic battles, (as of the time of this posting) and a few other minor details.  The game itself is a blast.  Still some bugs, and minute details to work out, but it’s nearly perfection already.  Gameplay is a mixture of Battlefield 4, and Battlefield 1, with new enhancements.  You also have the ability to customize your characters and weapons.  Current level caps are at 20 per class, and 50 at rank.

Recently rolled out was Tides of War.

Battlefield V Tides of War

Basic run down by class.

Assaults = Assault Rifles, Semi Auto/DMR’s, and Shotguns

Medics = SMG’s

Supports/Engineers = LMG’s, MMG’s, and Shotguns

Snipers = Bolt Action and Semi-Auto/DMR’s

Stoned as fuck playing Battlefield V is a riot.  Watch out for Kamikaze’s.

*9/10 Rating in my view so far.  Really close to a solid 10.  Thanks for the patch EA.  It only gets better.  Keep it up!
