That's the name of this article in The Atlantic. Nice take on the history and current state of heavy metal music, with a focus on Black Sabbath and Metallica.

h/t to Juliana Hatfield for posting this on her blog.

Panicked for a while. They just changed our addressing scheme at work here and our firewall is blocking web services that it never blocked before and I couldn't order tickets.

I considered jumping onto our management plane where we connect out to customers via VPNs for support but I figured that rockthehill.ca might stand out just a bit in the audit logs. Would have been a good test though to see if anyone really looks at them.

In the end, my brother (who ironically works for a competing ISP & Tel. Co) ordered them for me.

Interesting article though, took a few minutes to read it last night.

Be glad to send you some, if I can find a courier that doesn't ask questions.

They water down MurphShine and call it Nitroglycerin.
