    Listened to Too Many Humans yesterday as a matter of fact. I love the spite and bile of that album. An obvious influence on Godflesh and Grief. "Too many fucking humans, you breed like rats".

    Sorry I have to ruin the party, I love their Danzig era but for whatever reason the stuff that followed never clicked with me and that makes up majority of their career. Feelsbad.

    Everything released by the Misfits post-Danzig is absolute fucking garbage.

    Oh man, I don't get how you couldn't love DK. Jello exudes wit and cynicism from every pore. I don't think any band ever skewered that 80s social convervatism better; even the riffs seem to have a weird grinning cheshire-cat quality to them.

    I tend to prefer non-political music (see; my list) but ultimately I just could never get into his vocals enough for them to go to the next level for me. Classic band though of course and I take nothing away from them just because of some aesthetic issues I have.

    Never been a huge Dead Kennedys fan either. Not sure why.

    Directors I've seen the most films by. Counting films co-directed but not segments in films.

    1. Alfred Hitchcock: 46 - The Lodger, Downhill and all his talkies (not counting Mary)
    2. Joel Coen: 15 - everything up to True Grit
    3. Peter Jackson: 14 - everything up to the Hobbit trilogy including Forgotten Silver
    4. Steven Spielberg: 12-14 approx
    5. Terry Gilliam: 12 - gotta finish reading Don Quixote before I track down his latest

    Just a tad one sided!

    Yeah, I meant Danzig era-Misfits. The Graves-era stuff isn’t bad though.

    Got through Bruce Dickinson's solo stuff today. Pretty sure the first album or two turned me off a long time ago, but it was worth pushing through to the better stuff. I can definitely go here once in a while when I'm burnt out on Maiden and want something similar. Top five albums (though I only like the first two or three):
    1. Tyranny of Souls
    2. Skunkworks
    3. The Chemical Wedding
    4. Accident of Birth
    5. Tattooed Millionaire

    Oldest bands I've seen live:

    The Human Instinct
    The Stooges
    Deep Purple
    Black Sabbath
    ...and either Budgie and Blue Öyster Cult or Uriah Heep and Frank E. Evans Band depending on whether I count when they formed or when they settled on the particular name. Some things just refuse to work out nicely to 5.
