Introductions

Welcome to my new blog. This thing mostly exists as a shiny gateway to BE THERE, my new ugly-as-sin events calendar, but occasionally I'll post personal diatribes and pornographic materials that you might not be aware of otherwise. I invite all comments, criticisms and advice , but play nice: I'm new here.

Oh, and about the name Cerebral Metalhead: a lot of people are surprised when they find out that I listen to so much heavy metal, assumedly because I don't fit anyone's image of a typical "metalhead." Although I can appreciate most any form of music as a way of communicating the social/aesthetic/cultural concerns of a particular group of people, I hate it that we feel the need to make connections between what we listen to and who we are. To my mind, music is music, and the fewer barriers that exist between my ears and your music, the better. So the title "Cerebral Metalhead" means that in my head, I'm a smelly leather-clad tattooed death metal enthusiast with hair down to my ass and a beergut the size of a Galapagos tortoise, while to the external world I'm a totally non-descript, intelligent but not so street-smart white kid from suburban Los Angeles. I see no contradictions at all.

This is great. However, the calendar could be problematic, seeing as how you must look at each day individually. How will we know what's coming up without clicking on every day? You must show us the way.

Up at the top of the page, you'll see "day," "week" and "month" links which allow you to view all the events happening in your desired time frame. You can also click "list" to see a list of everything up through the apocalypse, which, as you'll notice, is occurring on June 17th, 2007 at 3:35pm.

i'm glad you have a blog now and i don't. this is a good trade-off (should there be a hyphen in that word?). anyway, this means that i don't have to post, and that i can comment on yours at will. this is perfect. yes.

I don't even live in L.A. anymore and I am reading the site. Mainly because I love you. :)
