Slowing Down But Still Going!

Found this artical this morning.
Hell of a icon and still going!


MOTÖRHEAD was forced to postpone its previously announced fall 2013 European tour until early next year. Lemmy explained in a statement: "We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don't worry — I'm not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.
"It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn't quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would've disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a MOTÖRHEAD tour, they expect a MOTÖRHEAD show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble."
Lemmy recently spoke to U.K.'s Classic Rock magazine about his health issues that have caused the band to cancel a number of European festival appearances this past summer — including shows in France, Germany and Russia. The dates were called off when doctors discovered an unspecified haematoma, a pool of leaked blood gathered in Lemmy's muscles. The legendary rocker is also suffering from Type 2 diabetes, diagnosed more than a decade ago, and has had a defibrillator fitted earlier this year to iron out the uneven bumps in his heart.
Lemmy takes two pills every day for his diabetes, which has affected the circulation in his legs. As a result, his legs stiffen and ache if he walks too far and his back hurts if he stands for too long. "But I can still stand at that mic every night and play my songs," he said. "I wouldn't know about the defibrillator if it wasn't for that fucking lump in my chest," he said. "I'm getting better."
Lemmy, who turns 68 years old in December, told Classic Rock he didn't expect to still be here at 30,
"I don't do regrets," he said. "Regrets are pointless. It's too late for regrets. You've already
done it, haven't you? You've lived your life. No point wishing you could change it.
"There are a couple of things I might have done differently, but nothing major; nothing that would have made that much of a difference.
"I'm pretty happy with the way things have turned out. I like to think I've brought a lot
of joy to a lor of people all over the world. I'm true to myself and I'm straight with people."
Asked if his illness this year has made him more aware of his own mortality, Lemmy said: "Death is an inevitability, isn't it? You become more aware of that when you get to my age. I don't worry about it. I'm ready for it. When I go, I want to go doing what I do best. If I died tomorrow, I couldn't complain. It's been good."

Manson Branching Out!

Can't Say I did not see this coming and I kind of like the idea of these guys expanding into more mainstream media.
Some may call it a sell-out but I think it is just good business!

Check it out!


Marilyn Manson is joining the cast of the hit ABC TV series "Once Upon A Time"Manson will provide the voice for The Shadow, a being which was first seen at the end of the show's second season and has already appeared in the recently started third year. Manson will make his debut on the season's eighth episode, scheduled to air in mid-November.

Show creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz said in a statement, "We've always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson. We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl."
The show takes place in the fictional town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which its residents are actually characters from various fairy tales that were transported to the "real world" town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse.
The Shadow is a mysterious being that kidnaps young children from their beds to take them back to the fantasy realm of Neverland and steal their souls.
The main storyline of the third season involves the cast traveling to Neverland to search for the character of Henry Mills, who has been snatched by an evil version of Peter Pan.
Manson has appeared in a handful of movies and TV shows before, most recently on the Showtime series "Californication" — where he played himself — and the Sundance Channel program "Wrong Cops".
He has spent most of the past year touring behind his 2012 album, "Born Villain".

Its not very often that I see something in the news that really winds me up but this morning I read that a Michigan school BANNED playing tag.
This is on the heels of other schools banning contact sports and replacing footballs and baseballs with Nerf products.
What the hell are we doing to kids?
It was bad enough when everyone started getting a trophy for just being there but now we are totally wussing up kids.
Sure we did some seriously dangerous stuff when I was a kid but for the most part we survived.
I have had my fair share of bumps, bruises, scars, and broken bones but that was just part of being a kid!
And NOT EVERYONE WINS! I don’t think I could go into The Bob and say “I was tired this morning so I did not come in but still want to get paid”. LIFE IS NOT FAIR! Suck it up go to work, play some contact games, and be ready for a hard knock life!
AND! I can see it now…. Super Bowl  2020 there is no field just a bunch of people with their computers synced up and playing video football from their mom and dads basement.
Sorry for the rant but COME ON MAN!
Till next time.

Now go get some grass burns ya sissy!
