As much as I swore I was never going to do a blog post about goddamn Metallica, when Bazillion Point Books contacted me about doing a spread celebrating the 30th anniversary of Cliff Burton's first show with Metallica (March 5, 1983, for those of you who aren't so good with math) – featuring actual photographs taken at said show – the opportunity was too good to pass up. So here you go, a ...

Look, as regular viewers of Project Runway and The Rachel Zoe Project already well and truly understand, there is a fine line between embodying haute couture and becoming, in the immortal words of Tim Gunn, "a pterodactyl out of a gay Jurassic Park." In Varg Vikernes' promo shoot for the upcoming (actually quite excellent!) third post-prison Burzum joint Umskiptar, the artist formerly known as ...

Did Zakk Wylde Tell Someone to Kill the President?

No, no he didn't. But some nutcase swears he did. James Vernon McVay, who rocks my favorite kind of tattoos- all faded and shitty, slashed the throat of a 75-year-old hospice nurse as the first step in his foolproof plan of driving to Washington DC to assassinate President Obama. And now after being caught he's explaining that he had to do it, you see -- because infamous cult Black Label ...

More Proof That Cats Are Our Overlords

File this one under, "How the shit did we not realize this sooner?!?!?" When your precious Floofy goes to clean his/her junk, Floofy is actually HAILING SATAN. Cats can't throw the horns because they don't have hands, but they are surely committed to darkness and have devised an evil substitute for the human race's weak-ass two-finger salute. Oh, everybody thinks cats are self-cleaning machines, ...

A Tattoo Tribute To Metallica

Here's a band there's got to be a million tattoos for. Unfortunately, 99% of them are those shitty little ninja stars, and the second most popular idea is to simply get the name in the classic font. Those are both boring ideas. The word is a little cool, just cause it usually comes out like shit, but that's it. So here are some of the best Metallica tattoos out there. And of course, when I say ...

Flesh Parade Installment 2: “Everything Went Black” Tattoo

Everything Went Black

Ah! It's wonderful to get a tattoo up here that's not on a man's ass. Jack, from the valley of the dolls, brings us this fantastic pale slab of Black Flag ink. He clearly had the right idea when he got it. I don't think you can fuck up with a Black Flag tat, and Jack scores infinite points for not simply getting the bars. More points are awarded because the ribs can be harsh, and despite ...

Terrible Heavy Metal Halloween Costumes

The Sammy Hagar outfit encourages manscaping. I thought I'd get a head start on my Halloweening this weekend, so I began looking around the web for costume ideas. That, coupled with pumpkin beers and the Misfits discography, led me to seek out what America thinks qualifies as a heavy metal costume. The Dallas Costume Shop had more ridiculous, cheesy outfits than you could shake a broom at. It ...

We, the working class, salute the fine young individuals who are bidding farewell to another summer and returning to academia. To help you get through another grueling year of homework, idiotic teachers, standardized tests, and the realization that there are no jobs out here once you graduate, the Deciblog has carefully constructed a series of imaginary yearbook photos of some of our favorite ...

Plop Culture Dump O’ The Day: Animals Reenact the MTV VMAs

Mazzy the kitten as Britney Spears, complete with fake albino python. The epic shit-show of the year happened last night. MTV is a pathetic punchline at this point in history, but there's one thing the VMAs were good for: an animal reenactment photoshoot, starring Mazzy, Muncie, and Mona the kittens and Moxie and Sugar the puppies.

Plop Culture Dump o’ the Day: Gathering of the Juggalos

Photo by Bucky Turco for ANIMALNewYork. Welcome to the armpit of America, better known as the Gathering of the Juggalos. Since 2000, it's been a misogynist/homophobic paradise, a narcotics flea market, and a reason to live for the roughly 20,000 attendees and enthusiasts of Insane Clown Posse. Check out Emma Carmichael's account of her experience as an undercover Juggalette at the ...
