Afraid it must be a short, flimsy post day. I’ve just got too much to do, but hopefully the work will provide fodder for tomorrow’s post. Then I get the weekend off. =)
Although I don’t exactly have a massive and varied readership quite yet, I’d like to put a few things on the table for your consideration and feedback. I’m trying to think of ways to both structure this blog and make it interesting to readers. I’m thinking of theming the days of the week, or maybe two or three days of the week. Like, “Money Monday” to blog about frugality and saving on Mondays, that sort of thing. Based on the basic thrust of the blog so far, does anyone have any thoughts on this? I was thinking maybe Money Monday, something specific for Wednesday, and then using Friday to make a get-you-through-the-weekend post containing interesting links to other blogs and sites with content similar to mine. Tuesday and Thursday can be anything days. Thoughts?
Whatever the case, the metal stays. That’s really just for me and my enjoyment. I mean, I hope someone reading this also enjoys it, but it’s fun for me and that’s important. And, in fact, here’s your metal for today:
Iron maiden – The Trooper
You know, even if you’re not a fan of metal, you should give the videos I post a little 30 second sample, at least. You never know what you might end up liking. Today’s video—a little Iron Maiden—is a perfect example. I honestly can’t wrap my head around anyone not liking Maiden. They are, undoubtedly, one of the very best metal bands, ever. They just are. Between Steve Harris’s galloping rhythms and Bruce Dickenson’s trademark vibrato—and all else in between—it doesn’t make sense to me that anyone could not at least say “Well, it’s catchy.” You just can’t listen to The Trooper and not find yourself, if not headbanging, certainly dropping a nod or two (or the whole song).
