***For Loud and Local submissions, you may use the upload form on the Loud and Local page (which tends to be fickle). If you would like to send an mp3, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sending mp3s to my kegl email locks it up and makes me appear incompetent to my co-workers. A seemingly incompetent Angela is a cranky Angela! However, if you really want to make me happy, you can send a CD. This way, I can keep it at my desk and easily add tracks at any time!***
My first crush:
Then I realized he was prettier than me and moved on.
I frequent cemeteries.
My job helps me meet the best looking men!!!
Duff McKagan is like fine wine.
I enhance my credibility by looking tortured. (Shutterkings Photography)
Slash and I share a common interest.
I like to clean up around the office. It keeps me down-to-earth when I get to meet people who are exceptionally cooler than I am. Please see below.
Freaker's Ball 2008 with Snot
After cutting off his own head, a decapitated Jeremy from Five Finger Death Punch was seeking medical attention!
I was so excited to meet Duff McKagan that I clipped a concrete column while trying to park my car...which still had dealer tags, BUT I did get this little beauty!!!!
Yes! That is Maynard!!!! Elusive, but we used our womanly ways to get him on camera!!!! Ha! Ha!
Freaker's Ball 2009! Look who I found backstage!!!! It's William Duvall of Alice in Chains!!! Where's Jerry, dammit???
Lzzy Hale from Halestorm! Played Freaker's 2009...will be at BFD 2012!
This is Pride!
Every year, I get the pleasure of hosting Autorama's Burn-Out contest! It's one of my favorite events of the year!!! This year's 1st place winner, Matt Kinsey, made it extra special though. Matt came to the contest decked-out in a day-glo orange hoodie. When he pulled out his cell phone, it was day-glo orange.
"You going for the 'traffic cone' look?" I asked him.
"This is my cancer color," he said.
I wasn't sure if he was yanking my chain for making a crack at his ensemble, (I know my sense of humor deserves it!) or if he was in fact a cancer survivor.
Mike's friend, and second place winner, confirmed that Mike had beat Lymphoma not once, but twice!
"I wish you would have told me! I could have talked about it when I still had the mic!"
Winners are determined by crowd applause, so I guess Mike wasn't looking to "politicize" a win, which I found really impressive! Plus, he was just so NICE!!! So, congrats to Mike for his fair and square win! Mike's "burn-out" is below! Compare the rest by checking out the complete album here!
Think of all of the times you've fallen (or perhaps been knocked down) and how confusing it can be. How did I land in this position? All I can see is sky and grass? Which direction am I facing? I think Chad Reed may have experienced this at last year's Supercross here in Texas...there was even some talk of retirement...not so much!
This situation brings forth conflicting emotions. On the one hand, there's the satisfaction of "being correct" regarding my theories that Todd Frost is, in fact, Frosty Krueger. On the other hand, the time it took for him to border, laminate, and sign this pic as "Freddy" then leave it for me to find is a bit disconcerting. Um, thanks, Frosty???
I don't know about you, but it seems to me that Frosty is a pair of knife-gloves and a few major burns from being Freddy Krueger. And it doesn't help that his web pic makes him look like the Unabomber....agree or disagree? ;)
It's long been said that one should never discuss politics or religion. It seems like there's an even touchier topic these days...Gun Control. Which conversation do you think would stir up the most controversy at a dinner party?
What would you do with all of this open floor space?
Kid Rock teaches you the basics of perception versus reality! Or demystifies the conquest! Take your pick!
a) Kenneth Howard Lee, the dude that spit on a Dallas police officer, or
b) Gollum from Lord of the Rings?
