If you like old school Iron Maiden or really melodic metal music that makes you feel like hopping on your horse to go ride out into battle with barbarians, she-devils, warrior princesses or amazons then go buy this album. Doro Pesch has been around since 1984 and never disappointed me with an album. She is amazing and the music is headbanging perfection. She is German and plays all over Europe. She was just recently voted one of the top ten most important people in Rock History.

So, I have been playing around with this story about cyborgs, and I looked up the word cyborg in the dictionary, because, well, I've realized sometimes I think I know what a word means, but I really don't. The definition of a cyborg is as follows: A person whose physiological functioning is aided by or dependent upon a mechanical or electronic device. WOW! So, there are cyborgs walking around all over the place. Anyone with a pace-maker is a cyborg. I know an actual cyborg! I also know a cyborg that has an implanted insulin machine. Anyone with an implanted hearing device is a cyborg. I realized I know a hell of a lot of cyborgs! Then I thought about how weird it is that as a society we are more comfortable walking around with or becoming cyborgs than we are with using stem cells. We would rather become machines than to use our own genetic material to replace parts or heal ourselves. Then I just got really creeped out.

So I've been thinking about what I want to be when I grow up and I still don't quite have the answer. All I know is that RETAIL is sucking the life out of me. You see the worst of human nature there. So, I AM an artist. I'm a damn good artist. I've toyed with being a tattoo artist. I mean, the new law goes into effect on Nov. 1st. It'd be fun and I would probably make a wad of cash. I could be my own boss. I've also thought about politics. Don't laugh, I'm SERIOUS. I love my country, and if I'm not happy about the way it's going, then maybe I should stand up and do something! That's how we get it to work our way, right? What do you guys think? Any other ideas?
