One of the greatest, and most prolific bands of all time. They were pioneers in the genre of thrash metal when they started out, with Kill Em' All. Their next three albums, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, and ...And Justice for All, were, and still are, all considered speedmetal masterpieces. When the 90's rolled around, Metallica released a self titled album, nicknamed the black album. This record featured a softer, more mainstream sound, but still had that characteristic Metallica edge to it. After years of tuoring for the black album, Metallica finally went back into the studio to record their 6th album, Load. Load had a much different sound than any of their previous stuff, opting for a more bluesy, hard rock style than the speedmetal that everyone associated the band with. Not too long after Load came out, a follow up album was released, ReLoad, which consisted of other songs that were written during the same time but didn't make it onto the album. Afterwards, an collection of various old cover songs from the 80's was compiled with brand new covers, and released as Garage Inc. And not too long after that came out, Metallica recorded a concert in which they played many of their classic songs, as well as some new ones, with the San Francisco Symphony. The result was the S&M album. Years later, in 2003, Metallica put out their most recent album, St. Anger. The album had mixed reactions among fans and non fans alike, but now, more than two years after its release, hopefully the controversy has died down, and we can all look foward to the next album.

A very... unique town in Colorado. Population consists of Left-wingers, weird hippies, Buddhists, old people and hobos. It is an unwritten law in Boulder that you must never eat anything processed, only things from the earth. Another rule is that you must be as bizarre looking as possible. Oh yeah, the University of Colorado's there too.
I went to Boulder and found a hobo who had locked himself in a dumpster.
Possibly the greatest game of all time. Many have tried to emulate the awesomeness of Shaq Fu, but have come up short every time. It is a fighting game, and as the name suggests, it stars Shaq, the center on the team of righteousness. His task is to go into another dimension, save some kid he doesn't even know, and beat the hell out of anyone who stands in his way. Awesome game. To get the full Shaqtastic experience when playing this game, I would suggest playing some of Shaq's rap songs at the same time, as well as having a Miami Heat, or old Lakers or Magic game on every other tv in the house.
Man 1: Do you Shaq Fu?
Man 2: Why, no, my good sir, I do not.
Man 1: I see, then away with you, you unworthy heathen!
The Zelda rap is in the very first Legend of Zelda commercial from the 80's. It features two stupid kids who can't act. One of them pulls out his Nintendo Newsletter and shows the other some screenshots of the 'new' Zelda game. All of a sudden one of them pull out what might be a bootleg copy of the game, and puts it into his NES. For some unknown reason, the two start an inpromptu rap song, which goes as follows:
"It's The Legend of Zelda and it's really rad!
Those creatures from Ganon are pretty bad!
Octoroks, tektites and leevers too,
But with your help, our hero pulls through!
Yeah, Go Link, Yeah, Get Zelda!
Wikki Wikki Wick!"
The commercial then cuts to the announcer, who says that your parents need to help you hook up the NES.
When I saw this commercial and heard the Zelda rap, I was both horrified and amused at the same time.
2. Good book by Ernest Hemingway. It's about soldiers in the Spanish Civil War.
2. Classic Metallica song. It has great guitar, cool lyrics, and is a perfect song to headbang to. It's based off of the book by the same name.
1. For Whom the Bell Tolls is an excellent war story.
2. "Take a look to the sky, just before you die... It's the last time you will!"
The best candy ever made.
Bill started choking on one of his Mike and Ikes, so I stole the box of them out of his hand and ran off.
1. A fairly generic comic strip that has seen better days.
2. One weird-ass President that I know nothing about
1. His weight used to be the defining characteristic about him. Now Garfield's not even that fat anymore. His head's as big as his body. Wtf?
2. Behold, I don't know who President Garfield is.
