    So freaking pumped for the Dallas show, though I'm bummed that Volbeat isn't opening the Dallas show.

    Some Kind of Monster is on Netflix. For those that haven't seen it, it's a good watch. Even for non-fans I'd recommend it as a good documentary. There are well-established cringe-worthy elements, but I think what gets lost in that is that they were brave enough to show that side of themselves to the world when it could have been shelved.

    I liked it because it was a vulnerable point of their lives. And funny how even Lars' dad wasn't into st.anger.

    Thanks for pointing this out, it's on the UK one too. I've been wanting to watch this for ages without feeling like I'm giving metallica any money!

    The DVD or recent Blu-ray is worth getting. The deleted scenes paint a much deeper picture. I'm sure with all the footage that was shot (I think all told it was somewhere between one or two thousand hours, over the nearly three years of production), they probably could have filled up at least one more DVD of stuff.

    I'm particularly intrigued by the scenes with Dave Mustaine which my sister said were pretty embarrassing. I read his autobiography and I've always preferred Megadeth but I had no idea how bitter and sad he'd become over being booted out of the band

    Seeing it again I'm not sure what to think of him in it, except that he clearly did carry all that anger and sadness still. They had their reasons for kicking him out but they went about it terribly, as can be expected of a group of guys in their early 20's, eager for the prize as they all were.

    Got so close for the show in Dallas. They were fucking amazing. Managed to get a guitar pick too.

    Went to the pop-up show in LA two days ago and here are a couple of photos....





    There was a small room that had the electric chair and a bunch of orb thingies from the 80s, it was all pretty cool



    and I walked away with this cool little pin



    and my sister and I will be at the show this upcoming Sunday in San Diego. We eneded up getting the crazy expensive tickets that come with a dinner or something like that and should be fun.
