Damnable damnity.

I'm having problems with the calendar page...I subscribed for $24 so that you could view all of the events by week, month or lifetime, and as soon as the payment went through, it erased all of the content I'd already added. I've sent two rather large Italian gentlemen over to the webmaster's house to get some answers and see if we can't fix this little problem without too many shards of patella flying around.

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.
