Update from Jonny

Posted: June 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hey everyone, sorry that there was such a big hiatus: Life has a way of throwing a wrench in the cogs, right? In any case, I wanted to add my own little update while Bill is doing these awesome posts. I am probably not going to be offering as much as Bill in terms of posting but when I do, I want you to know that I plan on making it something fun and exciting.

But here is a quick update on what is going on regarding Bloody-Disgusting: There have been more album reviews than I can shake a leg at, so instead of doing a link for each one, I’ll just give you THIS LINK HERE where you can see a full list of the album reviews in the Bloody-Disgusting music section.

I’ve also done quite a few interviews with some badass musicians. To name a few, I spoke with Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit, Paul Phillips of Puddle of Mudd, Ronan Harris of VNV Nation and more. All of these, and more, can be viewed HERE.

There are also a lot of things going on with B-D behind the curtains, so to speak. While I can’t say what they are right now, if/when they do happen, I’ll make sure to at least post a little blurb or link with more information.

Now, I don’t want you all to think that I’ve lost the drive or the commitment to this blog because of the craziness with Bloody-Disgusting. However, priorities are priorities and I’ll do what I can. But know this: I’m going to try and be involved with every post that Bill does, even if it’s just chatting with him over the phone about it or reading his posts before they’re put up. He and I are tight like that.

Lastly, I want to leave you with a little message from a soothing, yet commanding, voice:

And so it begins…

As Shang Tsung wisely once said, “IT HAS BEGUN!!!” So, to start things off, we’re Bill and Jonny. Two guys from Michigan who happen to love movies, games and music. We’ve decided to start this blog to do reviews, go on some crazy rants and basically just state our opinions on whatever we feel like. Here is basically what you should expect from each of us:

Jonny: I’m a guy who happens to enjoy the darker side of things. I love me some horror movies (which is why I also write for the badass website known as http://www.Bloody-Disgusting.com), enjoy metal and if you can tell me dead baby jokes that I haven’t heard, we’ll be pals.
In regards to movies, like i’ve stated above, I love horror movies. I also enjoy watching good anime (Jin Roh, Akira, Vampire Hunter D, etc…), foreign films (Amelie, The City of Lost Children, Infernal Affairs, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Orphanage, etc…), and basically anything that has a surreal edge.
When it comes to music I relish heavy. You can check out some of my reviews on http://www.Bloody-Disgusting.com to get an idea of some of the music I like, how I enjoy listening to it and why I go for it. I plan on reviewing music that isn’t exactly B-D.com material here on Digital Tantrum, so keep an eye out for some of that fun stuff.
And lastly, when it comes to games I’m definitely a horror kinda guy. Silent Hill is my bread and butter (I own each one in the series except for the Game Boy play novel (though I have the soundtrack to it)). I’m also pretty big into any game that involves killing Nazis (hey, I’m Jewish, what do you want from me?). You’ll see more about my tastes as game reviews start coming in from me.
As for personal stuff? Well, I’m not gonna go into that just yet. I’ll divulge my dark inner secrets as time goes on. But for now, I’ll pass things on to Bill.

Bill: Ok, unlike Jonathan up there, Im not gonna act like a big, scary, horror movie watchin’, death metal listenin’ demon-child. I am basically the off the wall, funny man of this duo. If it is a funny movie or a funny youtube video, I have most likely seen it. I also have quite the affinity for the random. Im also taken with those ridiculous action movies with the big explosions, the ones girls refer to as “guy” movies. As far as the music goes, I do prefer the heavy rock or metal like Jonny… just not as heavy. I’m more into the grunge scene of the 90’s or some various forms of heavy alt rock and metal. To get an idea of what I mean, bands I heavily enjoy are as follows: Alice in Chains, Tool, Metallica, Pantera, Rage Against the Machine, In Flames, The Haunted, Depeche Mode,etc. I enjoy a wide array of music and you will see as this blog progresses. Finally for the video games, I am pretty much a jack of all trades. Having been a gamer 20 out of my 22 years on this earth, i feel that i may be a bit of an authority or at least a bit of sensei on the gaming arts. I enjoy sports games (Madden, NHL, UFC, Fight Night, etc.), action adventures ( The Saboteur, Prince of Persia, Bioshock, Crackdown, etc.), some survival horror (limited to pretty much dead space and resident evil series, this is more Jonny’s cup of joe) and of course a rousing hack and slash to get out some aggression (Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, Darksiders, etc.). Well thats about all I can say for now, you’ll find out more about me as the world turns.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
