We'll Do it Live Fridays: Escaping the Misery that is a Heat Championship
I mean, seriously, fuck the Miami Heat. I hate them more than I've ever irrationally hated a sports team before; the whining, the bitching, the winning... it just all got to me. So in order to not hate life, I set about trying to find some live jams to make me realize that everything's going to be ok. This is a realization that only the cold light of day can bring; Mick will attest that twelve hours ago I wanted to throw up R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" and call it a day... but no. I won't let LeBron flatten my psyche like he flattened Manu's (seriously, what the FUCK was that guy doing?!?!), so here's a pair of rocking live performances to fire you up and make you remember that life isn't always depressing... even when a balding asshole is the NBA Finals MVP.
Metallica - "Master of Puppets" (from 1989!)
Forget everything that happened post-S&M (and for a few years before) and just bask in Metallica being awesome back when there was no discussion about it.
Meshuggah - "The Mouth Licking What You've Bled/Soul Burn"
Fuck yeah; don't you just want to fight some stuff?!?! Don't you feel better about life?!?!?! Doesn't the pain seem like a distant mem... I'm sorry guys. I can't do it. I'm still really, really bummed.
R.E.M. - Everybody Hurts
I'm just going to watch this for the rest of the day. You folk have a great weekend.
