Favourite metal genre(s):
Doom & NWOB/THM 

Am a huge fan of the so called "new wave of traditional heavy metal" as well as "doom" and power metal but am always open to diverging genres - hey, as long it sounds good, I'm all ears (and flailing limbs!)

*Writing Inspirations, alongside fellow Guild (MA reviewers) members:

Roy Peter Clark, William L. Shirer (RIP), W.W. Jacobs (RIP),
Adam Nevill, Markus Zusak, Lynda E. Rucker, Jeff Lemire,
Anthony Bourdain, Mike "McBeardo" McPadden of (ineluctable)
"Heavy Metal Movies" notoriety, John Bowen, of "Bowen's Basement",
a downright ticklish/uproarious Rue Morgue rubric, Philip Kerr,
Honore De Balzac - a French, Gilded Age literary boon companion
and master of monarchic middle-age ribaldry, Erik Larson,
Douglas Adams and, fondly enough, cuckoootube's Mid-Western
stoner/doom metal "grass roots purveyor, Stoned Meadow Of Doom!

"Fear not the long sentence."
-Roy Peter Clark, 2006

"They don't give medals on this planet
for courage in urban combat
But there are silver stars shining in the sky
that the astronomers can't explain."

"And yet even today people ask in surprise:
What is the use of these voyages of [musical]
exploration? What good do they do us?
Little brains, I always answer to myself,
have only room for thoughts of bread and butter."
-Roald Amundsen (bracket content is mine)

"The World is a magical place filled with people
who are waiting to be offended by something."
-Anonymous (& Sagacious)

[anodyne, self-effacing and winking emoji can go here!]

"If you run with wolves, you'll learn to howl."
-Jack Black, 1926

"Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back
into the same box."
-Italian proverb

"Words are loaded pistols,"
-Jean-Paul Sartre (god bless him!)

"Speak of the Devil...and He will come!"
-author absconded (somewhere...)
