Random Shoes

Well, I've gone and done it. I'm now self publishing. I think this is the best way to get my version of the verse out there. This is my first but will NOT be my last foray into publishing my photos, words, and naughty naughty deeds!! LOL Take a look, order a copy... more to come!

Victoria Anderson Photography Issue 1:Victoria Anderson PhotographyRandom Shoes is a labour of love and randomness. I've wrangled my friends to show the sacred circle of shoeness and taken pictures of the results. I've snapped photos of interesting shoes whilst traveling. While not seen as important, everyone has shoes. They have their favourite pair. They show the…

Iron Maiden to donate proceeds of T-Shirts to Japanese Recovery

Iron Maiden had to cancel both Tokyo due to the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. What to do with all the date branded t-shirts? Donate the proceeds of the sale of them to a charity to help the victims! How cool! Manager Rod Smallwood says that as soon as they can work out shipping the t-shirts that are in Tokyo at the venue with the dates on it will be sold. You can purchase a t-shirt at the Official Iron Maiden Shop.

Rival Sons

My ears had the pleasure of being introduced to RIVAL SONS. I can't thank Earache Records enough for this band! They are frakking awesome! It takes me back to my wild and impetuous youth in the 70s: bell bottoms, wide collars, and wicked guitar riffs. Depending on the song or the mood - Jay Buchanan sounds one part Freddy Mercury, one part robert Plant, one part David Coverdale, one part Rod Stewart. Just depends. His voice makes me want to don a pair of daisy dukes, a tube top, Candy's high heels and dance on a pole! Jay is accentuated by Scott Holiday laying down some heavy riffage. My prediction is he is taking Jimmy Pages throne as bluesy guitar god. Rival Sons has heavy nods to the groove oriented Zeppelin and swagger of Jeff Beck circa 1969-1971. The rhythm section is fiercely held down by Robin Everhart on bass and Michael Miley on drums.

"Sleepwalker" and "Torture" are definitely two of my favourite tracks from the EP released in January 2011. The …

Coffee*** 12 Jammy Dodgers***and a Fez!!

April 23!! Yep, a Saturday night! The newest season of Doctor Who, 32 for anyone counting, will be double premiered in BOTH the UK and the USA. BBC America will air part 1 at 9PM / 8 Central. After episode 7, "Demons Run" the show will take a break only to return in the fall with airings of episodes 8 to 13. Happily, they are bringing back Rory (Arthur Darvill) and my all time favourite Alex Kingston (Eastenders and The Bill) as River Song! Can't wait!!! I do love my Doctor, no matter what form he takes. Matt Smith proved last season he has the hutzpuh to to take such a well known character and make it his own. Did I mention I'm exciting that River Song is coming back???!!! Bring on April 23! I just hope BBC America plays (not bloody likely) the episodes as they air on the Beeb and not the hatchet job editing that they've been doing.
