Oh, and while on the subject of FoxNewsNetwork, it was fun to watch the progression of "Dimebag" Darryl (the Pantera guitarist shot by the nutcase in Ohio...a situation that really, *really* sucks) throughout the day.

I started seeing the news around 8am when they reported the story as "a guitarist for an underground metal band". By 9am, he was "Dimebag Darryl, guitarist for Damage Plan and former guitarist of Pantera". By about 11, he was "Dimebag Darryl, former guitarist for one of the biggest underground metal bands, Pantera". By lunch, he had become "Dimebag Darryl, former guitarist for the widely popular 80s and 90s metal band Pantera". By 1pm he was "Dimebag Darryl, one of the most influential guitarists in metal" and by 2pm he had become "Dimebag Darryl, as influential to the heavy metal music scene as Eddie Van Halen was to rock and roll" (I'm not making that up, they said that). Congrats on your popularity gain Darryl. Sorry you had to die to achieve it.

Guess it's true what they say, "everybody loves you when you're dead".

Now playing: Pantera - Far Beyond Driven.
