Concert Review — Overkill at the Sunshine Theater

Filed under: entertainment, Events, Fun, Life, Reviews, Sports / Recreation — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:42 PM (16:42)

For what it’s worth, I bought my ticket online over two months ago —

As late as 2006, I had to drive around Albuquerque, looking for Ticketmaster sellers [1]. HoldMyTicket is so, so much BETTER than Ticketmaster.

Here’s the event poster (had to convert it from .webp format, as WordPress doesn’t like that one [2]) from the Sunshine Theater’s site [3]

Leading up to Overkill, Exhorder put out a good effort. Here’s their official site, Facebook Page, and YouTube channel.

Here’s Overkill’s set list from last night:

In the middle of “Rotten to the Core,” Mike Trujillo, former host of Zero Hour Squared on the now-defunct (?) Channel 27, stopped by, said “Hi,” and we shook hands. Nothing like meeting old friends at these shows.

This was the fourth time I’ve seen Overkill live [4], and as on the previous occasions, they didn’t disappoint. I am hoping for fifth, sixth, and seventh times, wherever I might end up.


NOTES

  1. Ticketmaster Wikipedia page
  2. Nor does WordPress like the Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg) format that seems so much better than JPEG or PNG. Whatever.
  3. Sunshine Theater event page, Facebook event page
  4. First time — Friday, 23 September 2005 at the Launchpad [618 Central SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico]

    Second time — Monday, 17 November 2013 at the Sunshine Theater [120 Central SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico]

    Third time — Monday, 27 February 2017 at the Sunshine Theater

Overkill — Last Man Standing

Filed under: entertainment, Listening, Viewing — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:57 PM (18:57)

[Verse 1]
They’re lining up in columns
They’re lining up in pairs
They’re lining up around the globe
They line up everywhere
Without reservation
Without cause to care
Fuck the complication
Last man standing
Heard the blowing siren
Heard boots upon the ground
Heard the brave in unison
Hear their engines pound
As God will be our witness
And evil is commanding
Fuck the abdication
Last man standing

[Chorus]
Last man standing, last to fall
Last man rise to take it all
Last define the best of what we do
Last man standing, last to fall
Last man rise to take it all
Last man in to tighten up the screw
Get in the mix and fight
Fight

[Verse 2]
The fever turned to anger
The anger turned to hate
The hate became the reason
In the hands of fate
Without reservation
Pause to dedicate
All our admiration
Last man standing
Stronger by the dozen
Stronger by the score
Stronger by the thousands
With a cry of war
As God will be our witness
And loyalty demanding
Fuck obliteration
Last man standing

[Chorus]
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last define the best of what we do
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last man in to tighten up the screw
Get in the mix and fight
Fight

[Bridge]
All our footsteps have taken us here
To the place that we all can call home
And all of our hearts sing together in what we bring
All in a place we call home

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus/Outro]
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last define the best of what we do
Last man standing, last to fall
Last to rise and take it all
Last man in to tighten up the screw
Get in the mix and …
Get in the mix and …
Get in the mix and fight
Fight
Fight
Fight
Fight

Tim Keller’s Mayoral Theme Song?

Filed under: Listening, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:38 PM (20:38)

That song, of course, should be “Breaking The Law” by Judas Priest.

But hey, “he acted in good faith” so it doesn’t really matter, does it?

Helloween — Another Shot of Life [Video with Lyrics]

Filed under: Life, Listening, Media — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 1:21 AM (01:21)

I am no stranger to darkness
I am no stranger to pain
I had to suffer ’till I went insane
Learning from pain and from heartaches
How to forgive and forget
Never give up ’cause life goes on again

Pushed all around I can’t take it no more
Don’t tell me how to behave
Won’t hide away I can make it for sure
I will survive
I will live my own life

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

If you feel strange and emotional
Carrying the weight of the world
Open your soul and let the spirit in
It’s not the end of the rainbow
It’s not the end of the line
Your time will come and you will rise again

Pushed all around I can’t take it no more
Don’t tell me how to behave
Won’t hide away I can make it for sure
I will survive
I will live my own life

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

Shot of life
Shot of life
Shot of life
Shot of life

I’m leaving all my pain away
My sorrows are not here to stay
Tomorrow comes another day
Another hope, another try

Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
I played my pride — There’s no place to hide for me
Shot of life — I will take another shot of life
Shot of life — ‘Till I find my destiny

W.A.S.P. — I’m Alive

Filed under: Listening — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:38 AM (05:38)

The target is me, a monster you flee
I hate what you say and you do
A mirror is there and look if you dare
The fool that you see’s only you
Oh, no, you won’t nail me to your tree
Or hang my head up high
No kingdom reigns over me
Despise all the liars I see
Don’t give me your
“Save my soul” cure

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Can’t understand, the lord of the land
Your heart and your head made of stone
Lay in the sand my blood on your hands
For God’s sake just leave me alone
Oh, no, you won’t nail me to your tree
Or hang my head up high
Restless is all I can be
Ruthless and reckless you see
I don’t need your
“Save my soul” cure

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Force suppression, that’s what you do
Feel me, what’s in it for you
Listen, I’m on to your game
All your lies are the same

[REFRAIN:]

I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
You can’t understand, why
I — I’m still alive, and I am the soul survivor
Damn your holy man — alive

Overkill — Drop the Hammer Down

Filed under: Listening — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:19 AM (04:19)

Hold your feet to the fire
Hold your face to the ground ground ground
Hold on tight, you’re a target baby
Drop the hammer down
I’m a long life, loving hate
I’m a bomb that makes no sound
Could you please, would you loosen these
I’m about to fucking drown

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you’ve exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you’ve exploded
Drop the hammer down

In a mock execution
In a house of gag and bound
Not the best of solutions
Drop the hammer down
I’m a long life, hating love
Under my dirt mound
If you could stand where we stood
We’re not fucking around

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you’ve exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you’ve exploded
Drop the hammer down

Let’s hear it for the black and blue
For the tortured soul, the battered crew
Three cheers for the black and blue
Hey Hey Hey
Raise a glass to the beaten down
To their dignity, bloodless frown
Three cheers for the beaten down
Hey Hey Hey
Hey Hey Hey

Drop dead dreams in a deep, dirt ditch
Buried by a shovel hand
Dead screams from the son of a bitch
Coming out to beat the band
Oh baby how I love your bite
Turn my smile upside down
Oh baby how I hate your light
As you drop the hammer down

Hold your feet to the fire
Hold your face to the ground ground ground
Hold on tight, you’re a target baby
Drop the hammer down
I’m a long life, hating love
Under my dirt mound
If you could stand where we stood
We’re not fucking around

Lowdown and overloaded, keeping you alive
I see that you’ve exploded
On the other side
Lowdown and lowdown, kicking it around
I see that you’ve exploded
Drop the hammer down

Helloween — My God-Given Right (Official Video)

Filed under: Fun, Listening, Media, Philosophy, Principles, Resistance, Self-Defense, Viewing — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:55 AM (02:55)

Why should I wait, what is left there for me?
I come to claim
To win the game
Why should I plea for my fair and right move?
I come to play
I come to stay

I don’t wanna bitch around no more
I don’t wanna stand back anymore

It’s my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It’s my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There’s nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There’s nothing to find
If I stay behind
It’s my right
My god-given right

Why should I lose if I am meant to win?
I know I can
I’ve got a plan
All that they told me is right and so wrong
I went through schools
Found my own rules

I don’t wanna bitch around no more
I don’t wanna stand back anymore

It’s my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It’s my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There’s nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There’s nothing to find
If I stay behind
It’s my right

My god-given right
It’s my god-given right
My god-given right
It’s my god-given right

It’s my god-given right
To stand and fight
For what I like
It’s my god-given brain
That cried in pain
Would I resign
There’s nothing to gain
If I would restrain
There’s nothing to find
If I stay behind
It’s my right
My god-given right


The site blabbermouth.net[1] quotes Oliver Sommer, who directed the video for the title track:

“The story tells itself with the first look on the artwork: it seems to be a film still and you only have to press the ‘play’ button. So the female protagonist flees – reminiscences to different (post)apocalyptic films and stories are deliberated – from an army of robotic pumpkin soldiers through an empty world. On the other side, the band performs in frightfully beautiful, rocked out ambience. When the tough girl realizes that she won’t escape, she turns around and kills her chasers with a grenade which looks like the torch from the Statue of Liberty . . . It is immersed in snow on the cover artwork and in sand in the clip.”

I’m wondering if I’m the only one who notices that the “pumpkin soldiers” bear a slight resemblance to Imperial Stormtroopers from the Star Wars franchise . . . ?

And don’t get on my case about the tactical idiocies (cover and concealment? what’s that?) in this one — it’s a music video made by Europeans, fer Chrissakes.

Havok — Give Me Liberty . . . Or Give Me Death

Filed under: Fun, Listening, Media, Philosophy, Principles, Viewing — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 2:36 AM (02:36)

Cut the rotting branches of Government that stop the people from having meaning today
Stay out of my business and keep to yourself
Got to do things my own way
Minimizing freedom with your rules and regulations
A never-ending hunger to control
Choking out the life of your own population
Abusing the power you hold

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death
Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death to our Independence

Death to those who fight
Death to our Constitution and the Bill of Rights
Showing no regard for the way things ought to be
Stripping away rights from you and me

The Founding Fathers would be rollling in their graves
If they could see what you are doing to this place
The next thing to go is our Freedom of Speech
So I’ll speak up while I still can and maximize my reach

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death
Give me Liberty . . . or Give me Death

I find it hard to believe
Some things are better left unsaid
Is this the land of the free?
Democracy is Dead

Cut the rotting branches of Government that stop the people from having meaning today
Stay out of my business and keep to yourself
Got to do things my own way
Minimizing freedom with your rules and regulations
A never-ending hunger to control
Choking out the life of your own population
Abusing the power you hold

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me liberty or Death

“When the people fear the government there is tyranny,
when the government fears the people there is liberty”
– Thomas Jefferson
