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.

All I Want For Christmas

All I Want For Christmas Is You

I admit, I’m Asatru, but we all have our own Winter Holidays.  I hope yours is much better than my family situation which endures year after years, where family only grows farther apart, rather than closer together.  It’s not even politics.  They just hate each other.  “Unconditional love”, does anyone ever hear those words anymore?  A little more in this World wouldn’t hurt.

@POTUS  Thank you for all you have done for our Country since you took office, and thank you for all you continue to do.  The White House may be a little empty, but you have a Nation standing shoulder to shoulder with you.  Therefore, you are not alone this Holiday.  Have a great Christmas, and please keep up the great work!

Much love to the World, and to our beautiful Country, and Citizens here in the United States.  Happy Holiday’s to you all!
