Festival Fun


So today is the day.  We are heading to M’era Luna.  This is a German Goth Rock music festival in Hildesheim.

This seems like a bit of a move away from my usual music indulgences (Heavy Metal, zero festivals), but over the last few years or so, I have been getting into some of the music along with Charlotte (who is a huge fan).

So naturally, after listening to the music and going to a club a handful of times, I am totally ready for a weekend festival.

Sure, there are a lot of bands that I don’t know…but that’s part of the fun right.  Unfortunately NightWish will also be there…which is a shame.  db0 tried to get me into them many years ago…I think it was the fastest I have ever reached for the delete button on my PC in history (Opera Metal..I mean, seriously).

There are definitely bands that I don’t know but damn sure want to find out about such as Merciful Nuns and Total Body Control (tell me you aren’t intrigued) and, of course, Tying Tiffany (which I am not sure if this is a band or some form of performance art).  Sure, I could have looked on YouTube, but why remove my sense of wonder.

If all else fails, ASP are there (who I love) and Rob Zombie (who I at least know).  It should be a fun weekend..which I intend to vlog, assuming I am not struck dumb by what I am seeing of course :)

Check out the M’era Luna 2015 trailer below and, if you are going, look for the terrified Englishman..and then gently lead him to the nearest beer tent.


The Laughing Wolf gets all social..and stuff

Social Media 01So, after years of blindly ignoring social media, YouTube and all that other guff..I have taken to streaming live on Twitch whenever I game.  I have precisely 2 followers and I think that I maxed out at 3 people in my channel so far…including me.

You know what, I don’t care.  I enjoy it, and that’s all that matters.  Charlotte and I have even done a video for YouTube together and, guess what, it was a taste test :D

We have all of this technology available to us, and we decided to have some fun with it.  If we will get around to making lots of videos, I don’t know.  I suspect it will be like most things we do, when the mood grabs us and all that.

I have gotten back into my hobbies (yes, gaming qualifies), so I may add the odd blog post about those.

Meh, enough about that…anyone wanna play Dirty Bomb?  See you in there :D
