Christopher Lee welcomes Friday night. Happy Birthday to the only 91 year old that not only celebrated a birthday on May 27, but released his second heavy metal record on the same day. All hail the king of metal, baby.
Welcome Friday. The bringer of the end of the week, and the gateway drug to Saturday! In addition to all the metal news you need to know below, Movies About Girls #167 episode will land on the Internet’s this weekend. This week, your favorite band of disheveled good-timers go back to the land of 1987 for part II of Andy Sedaris’ shirtless spy flick, Hard Ticket To Hawaii. We’ll also play another round of “That’s Not A Real Band Name, Is It?”, curated by yours truly, tell you what part of Florida to avoid with our Crazy News report, the Top 5 and Bottom 5 DVD/Blu-Ray releases of the week, and as always, laffs and hassle-free good times with MAG’s international gang of teenage losers. Dig it!
