SEEN AND HEARD ON A SATURDAY: THE RUINS OF BEVERAST, TURRIS EBURNEA, SWAMPBEAST, CAMBION
I’m wimping out today. I hate to let even a weekend day go by without spreading around some attractive new metal, but I’ve had to pay attention to my day job all morning (it doesn’t observe weekends any more than I do at NCS), and I’ve got to go back to paying attention to it again soon, so I can’t pump out the usual stream of words about the following selections.
Also, with so little time to myself this morning I was only able to just scratch the surface of all the new songs and videos that surfaced over the last week. Fortunately, these few scratchings turned out to be very good, and they all clawed right back at me.

What, I wonder, is that non weekend observing job, I wonder. You’ve probably said it before, or perhaps youd rather not—which is fine, as well!
I used to say I was an advisor to world leaders on pressing problems they couldn’t figure out on their own, or that I was a drug mule. The job is actually much more mundane than either of those, but I’d still rather not explain further. 🙂
The only job I can think of that violates the sanctity of weekends would be academia…Only because that’s what’s messing w my life and I want to bemoan the fact…
