What a great weekend! Apparently I’m rich! You see, I got an email from Mr. John Kofi White, branch manager of a financial institution in Ghana, who is offering me 30% of his $7,597.864 family fortune. All I have to do is give him my bank account info and let him transfer it through there, because he wishes to remain anonymous! Thanks to this stroke of good fortune, I’ll be quitting MetalSucks, effective tomorrow, and will be offering free Jameson to anyone who stops by the MS Mansion tonight as I embark on my new life as a millionaire.
Elsewhere in the “too good to be true” department, Alice in Chains are recording a new album. It may suck, but I remain cautiously optimistic that one of my favorite bands ever will do something at least somewhat worthwhile (check out a studio video of Sean Kinney tracking drums for the new record here). The new record is due Summer 2009; in the meantime, check out this live performance of the classic lineup performing “Again” on some TV show in the mid-nineties. Judging by Layne’s appearance it looks like this was filmed not too far before the famed [in my Desert Island 5!] Unplugged show. Layne is definitely on his last legs here and it’s creepy as hell… but fuckin’ great nonetheless.
