This year I saw a bunch of my favorite bands and didn’t take a single picture. I saw Diamanda Galas, Agent Orange and Black Sabbath! I also saw Wax Idols & Skullshitter twice. Despite the shitstorm of idols dying, fascism rising and all the other shitty things you already know about, I hugged a lot of you. Let’s do that some more.

This is a year in review. This year was full. It wasn’t just a block of time. It was deep and jam packed, with family, friends, secrets, garbage drama, vacuum cleaners, driving, last minute bookings and lots of love. I took a lot of pictures, only watched my FAVORITE bands and got back to doing a little bit of writing (like I wrote about three albums that changed my life, then interviewed my friends about joining their favorite band and then listed the top 50 metal d00ds we crush). Oh and Mick put out three of his own albums.
