Controversial Album Covers IX (Pt. 21)

Year: 2002

Impaled: Choice Cuts

fzy8k0y

The Problem: When it comes to goregrind, there’s not much that can be considered shocking given the grotesquery found within the lyrics. While overtly violent, the genre has always maintained an aura of fun with tongues firmly in cheek. However, that doesn’t make album art like Impaled’s Choice Cuts compilation easier to look at, as it features a newborn baby lying in a pool of blood and guts with a hacksaw placed to its throat by the doctor.

My Take: Well, that’s one way to control the population. The gore doesn’t really surprise me at this point. (Just go back and look through this project through all of the gory album covers.) At this point, I am so numb to the shock.

Lore Gore: The Autophagous Orgy

The Problem: Lord Gore tapped Japanese hentai artist Waita Uziga for their debut record, The Autophagous Orgy. Uziga needed no inspiration considering the word “autophagous” means “self-devouring.” The album cover is a particularly brutal take on hentai (anime porn) with caricatures of women drenched in blood in a sexual feast of human flesh. Lord Gore certainly live up to their band name with this album cover.

My Take: Ero Guro rules this cover. This would make Dir en Grey proud. A little note here: “hentai” means perverted. Americans are the ones who decided call Japanese animated porn as such. I believe it’s egore. I have to look it up later. I tried to look up Uziga-san, but couldn’t find much about him. He does have a manga called, Mai-chan’s Daily Life. It’s just like this album cover. So, yeah… (Plus, there was a live-action movie too. Oh buddy…)

Controversial Album Covers IX (Pt. 6)

Year: 1982

Spinal Tap: Smell the Glove

6ipdd9x

The Problem: Fictional but classic: in the movie This Is Spinal Tap, one of England’s loudest bands has its album cover rejected by the record company and replaced with a plain black cover. The original vision? “A greased, naked woman on all four with a dog collar around her neck, and a leash and a man’s arm extended out up to here holding onto the leash and pushing a black glove in her face to sniff it.”

My Take: It looks like it came from a hentai. Are we sure that this didn’t come from an eroge game? I know this is not possible because of the year. Anime wasn’t this advanced in style in the 80’s. But it still looks like it could come out of a hentai game.

In Need of Something

I want something exciting. I could watch some of the stuff I loaded up on my Hulu list, but I have to beat my laziness first. I could resume my anime watching again, but I’ve too lazy from that too. I’m slowly burning through my podcasts. (I estimate that I will be finished with one of them by the end of this month.) I wish to read more, I’m too lazy. Sims 4 is starting to get boring, but I think I just need a new way to play it. I keep stalling with Durarara x2 with Netflix. I have been watching videos from Double Toasted, but that isn’t enough anymore. I did watch a video on Angry Joe’s channel today, but that’s about it. I did video the Batman and Robin Hilariousity video from Chris Stuckmann’s channel for a little bit, but then I went back to work. Last night, I listened to Lara Thompson read that god awful Harry Potter fic, My Immortal, and critique while I played Sims 4.

<Sigh>

Maybe, I will just stuck up and get over my laziness and pick back up with Misfits. Wish me luck, but for now…

Rating System

I thought of this while I was in bed last night. I decided that if I ever get off my ass and start reviewing anime/Japanese movies/J-Dramas, I will put in place a rating system. It will go zero through ten and the names will be all of the following starting from ten downwards. These might be subjected to change if I come up with better labels for them:

10: Shut Up and Take My Money!

9: Download

8: Rental

7: Stream

6: Kill Time

5: Meh

4: Could be Better

3: Nothing Else On

2: Garbage

1: Background Noise

0: Fuck This Shit!

I think that’s good for now. And while you’re at it…

Planning Ahead

Good news, everyone!

I am going to publish a new light novel series, Dreamland, soon. I already sent it off to a beta reader to read it. I really do love writing this. I have an idea on how the journey will end, but I don’t know how I am going to get there. For now, you will get the treat of reading volume one of Dreamland really soon.

Things have been going great for me. I am really loving my job. Waiting for the pay is a little annoying at times, but it’s all great. I can’t wait to write more with my job. I started watching Princess Jelly yesterday. So far, I have only seen two episodes of it. My Teenage Romance Comedy Snafu was good. I might go back and watch season two once I clear through my list of anime. (It just keeps on growing! Ahhhh! Help me!)

After I publish volume one of Dreamland, I don’t know what I am going to publish next. I will have to look through my files and see what should go up. For now…

Whew, That was a Pain

I finally have this blog organized. It was a pain to get the posts to have their right categories and tags. Despite some leftover tags, I have everything set now.

So, what comes next?

Well, as predicted, more writing. I still don’t have a re-release date for Sins of Women, but it’s coming. Bare with me, please?

I don’t really have much to talk about this week. (I am a little busy doing, what else? Writing.) Maybe next week I will have more to say. Though I have gotten into Detroit Metal City this Saturday after I finished Gatchaman at long last. Whew! All I can say is, poor dude. Each episode is only thirteen minutes long. Because of this, I have spent three days cramming in these short episodes and shaking my head at the utter madness that I watch each episode. I am up to episode nine and I will finish off the series tomorrow. (There are only twelve episodes in this anime. That’s probably a good thing because I don’t know how they would be able to keep up with such madness. The anime isn’t bad, it’s just… insane!) Next up will be the anime version of The Count of Monte Cristo.

I think that’s it for now. I will keep you posted on Sins of Women and when it will be re-released. For now…

Blogging and Book Re-Release

So last week, I merged my blog from Blogger to this blog. One problem: the tags on Blogger ended up being categories on here. So the next day, I had the “fun” task of separating the categories and tags. Let me tell you something: it sucked! So time-consuming, but I got it done. Now, I have to go through and organize the categories again, edit and tag the posts that came from Blogger, and delete duplicate posts. This isn’t going to be fun, but I have to do it to look professional.

Meanwhile, I will be re-formatting Sins of Women tonight. I don’t know when I will re-release it yet. After this, I will only have Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked left to re-format and re-released. Tomorrow, I will attempt to do the blog stuff and happily start on the Durarara section of my Wasteland Project. Plus, I will watch said anime on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when I write each halo. (I call the chapters for that section “halos”.) So much to do, but I can manage it. While you wait, you can…

Happy 4th Everyone and Presenting… Love Addict!

Happy Independence Day! How was your Fourth? Mine was okay. I ate food, but I didn’t really get to see fireworks. Oh well, maybe next year. Still, I got work done. Oh and saw the first new episode of D.Gray-Man Hallow. I love it! The animation and the voice actors are different. Someone complained about them, but I told them that artists often change style because they need to grow in their craft and they probably couldn’t get the same cast to do the voice roles. I thought the voices fit the characters. Overall, I can’t wait to see the next episode next week. Now, I have more thing to do.

Time for some book pimping.

Title: Love Addict

Description: A thirty-something sex addict is on the prowl tonight, but what she finds is a stranger that rips open the old wounds and sends her into mental anguish as she tries to survive the night with him.

I also cleaned out the vent of my laptop. I had no idea that I let dust build up that badly for close to seven years now. It was so gross too. Eww! Now, Pinky can breathe much better and not overheat on me when I play Sims 4. Yay!
I only have five more books left to re-format and re-publish. Soon, I will go back to publishing new books. The next book up is Weekender. Expect to see that some time this month or the next. For now…

Working and Waiting

I finally have a job! I’m doing contract work for resume writing. I still need a full-time job, but it’s a start. For now, I am a happy camper.

Now, I have four more weeks until I start season five of Wasteland 2011. Plus, I still have re-format my short e-books. Other than that, I don’t really have much else this week. My Memorial Day was good. I watched anime and played Sims 4. Plus, I binge listened to an Australian reality show about searches in airports while my mother watched it on Netflix. I am going to go back and play more Sims 4. While I do that, you can…

I am Just about There

I got something finished today. It’s not my Fullmetal Alchemist fic, but it’s just about as old. It’s just a dumb little comic I had been sitting on for a long time. I couldn’t decide how long I wanted to make it at first. Initially, I wanted to make it twenty-six chapters long. Then I realized I wouldn’t have enough ideas to make that happen. (My plot bunny farm is already overflowing. I need to take out those little creatures first before I could come up with things.) I was stuck between thirteen chapters and twenty. Finally, someone suggested that I made it thirteen and here we are. I already had the first twelve down. After a bit of a touch-up on the section that it on and actually writing out the chapter, I am done with that little comic!

I will finish Anaconda on Wednesday. You can bank on that. It will be finished at last! I already picking out the music for the second to last chapter! I am going to finish it this week! Next, I will resume another old series that I have been sitting for quite some time now. Like I said, I need to clean out the plot bunny farm this year. My task list is helping me do that.

As for my published work, today I am cleaning up my bio for Canojo Koi. Next, I will fix the format for Sleeper on Wednesday. Today and Wednesday will be cleaning up day. I’m already counting down to it. However, I am still looking for a full-time job. At least now I know what I am looking for. I just need to apply and hopefully I will get two interviews with the same employer. The last time I had an interview, it went well, but they are still holding my resume in case they have something open for me.

Other than that, I will look for a beta reader for my Hetalia fanfics just to get them cleaned up just in time for the Wasteland Project’s new season coming up on June 27th. I hope that I can catch somebody. I am tired of reading typos and cursing myself for it. I think I will wrap up now. Have a good week everyone.
