Pain Olympics

Well the blog is getting rougher.I've always liked body modifications and I've been experimenting with them myself,but I've never gone further than the ocasional facial tattoo or the average dick piercing.Quite dorky if I compare myself to some BME guys.BME(body modification enzine)is the biggest and most popular body modification community in the world,any info you need about any type of body modification is on their website:opinions,the propper ways to do them,stories,everything.They organized a competition called Pain Olympics so that everyone would send their sickests BM videos.It's amazing what someone can do for a free membership,which was the price.I advice you not to to watch the videos if you are easily disturbed,this shit is tough.Don't say I didn't warn you. Watch it here and here

Rad documentaries with Louis Theroux

Louis Theroux is a British-American broadcaster best known for his Gonzo style journalism on the television series Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends and When Louis Met...
He gives viewers the chance to get brief glimpses into the worlds of individuals and groups that they would not normally come into contact with or experience up close. In most cases this means interviewing people with extreme beliefs of some kind, or just generally belonging to subcultures not known to exist by most or just frowned upon.His documentaries are quite outstanding,due to the before unexplored worlds he dares to get into,wich are specially interesting: pornstars,swingers,pedophiles,crystal meth,etc

And they say he’s losing endorsements



True, Tiger Woods clearly has other things to worry about right now, but this is crazy.Someone spotted these for sale in Dallas, not on the street or in some shady spot, but in the hotel gift shop!

They are “Special Edition Tiger Condoms,” with a tag line of “Protect Your Wood.” Again, we’re no lawyers here, but we can’t imagine that this is legal, right?

A quick look at their site reveals a few other things, mostly more ridiculous tag lines and this disclaimer:

Tiger condoms will not protect you from car accidents or Swedish super models.Any impression that Tiger Woods has endorsed or used this product with any of his transgressions is purely your own.This product has not been endorsed by Tiger Woods.Tiger Condoms are a creation of Practice Safe Policy.A portion of each sale will be donated to golf charities in the USA.

Couple Caught Having Sex At MÖTLEY CRÜE Concert

According to Ross Romaniuk from the Winnipegsun.com, video has surfaced showing a man and woman engaging in a raunchy act of sexual nature at the downtown arena last Friday night (January 29th) during a MÖTLEY CRÜE concert.
After the video - shot by another patron - was posted on YouTube, MTS Centre spokesman Scott Brown confirmed Wednesday the incident happened early in the rock band’s show before security staff ushered a man and woman out of their seats in the upper bowl and ejected them from the building.
“We were made aware of it as soon as people were able to,” Brown said. “It’s disappointing that someone would engage in that kind of behaviour in such a crowded forum, like an arena during a concert.”
In the video, before security intervenes, the blond woman is on top of someone - and facing him or her - in a seat for some time, aggressively grinding her hips against them while several spectators watch. When the couple are ushered out, other patrons cheer - or jeer, depending on who is asked.
The action lasted for four songs,and the woman had time to perform with another woman.Needless to say that I support public sex and that a Crue concert is the perfect place for a wild fuck!!If only Tommy had seen them.He would have probably joined the party.

Child predators caught

Hilarious reality Tv show called "to catch a predator" in which men are lured to meet with a decoy under the pretense of sexual contact.These adults contact the underage girls over the net and they are,eventually,subsequently led to believe that the supposed minor is home alone,and come inside the house in question seeking sexual activity from the decoy. Soon after meeting the decoy, they are confronted by our main man Chris Hansen when the decoy leaves the room.Hansen attempts to interview each one at length about their intentions, whereupon the predators in question are free to make the choice to refuse to respond. Some exit the home immediately upon seeing Hansen, because they recognize that he is clearly not a teenager, or they have seen him in previous investigations.Arrests are sometimes made in a dramatic fashion by multiple officers who,with tasers drawn,ambush the suspect and command him to lie face-down on the ground before being handcuffed.Charges are pressed again these men.

Sometimes you can't even feel but sorry for these guys when they get tricked by these super hot decoys!!



Even more amazing is this poor little guy who gets caught for the second time!! LOL

Crank County Daredevils

Raw.Punk.Dirt.Shit.Fuck.I can only mumble those words after attending a Crank County Daredevils show.Agressive southern rock that would put Motorhead to bed.They are definitely not gonna have a hit ballad on MTV.Their thing is sweating,snorting,drinking and fucking while they deliver monochord crazyness.Isn't it good when there still are bands like that around? roaring like a Harley down the highway,shredding eardrums along the way,their live show is such a blast.But their partying is totally out of control.Their bass player is a rock n roll animal like I haven't seen before,behaving on and off stage like a gargoyle on crystal meth,drunker than drunkest,destroying their own merchandise stand.
Yeh,the sound is distorted,the drums are distorted,the vocals distorted,their lifes are distorted and their guitars feeding back continuously-it sounds like they were all pumped up on very cheap Speed.Well,So What!This ain't Guns & Roses losers,this is Crank County,bitch.

Gallows

Gallows is the new shit.I've never really liked anything with the word hardcore in it before,and although there are arguments all over about which genre they belong to,there's definitely a bit of hardcore in their music.Luckily there's punk too.They've only been together 18 months but they've had time to tour like motherfuckers,release 2 albums,be on the cover of Kerrang magazine and be named as "best British band since The Clash" and "the world's most exciting new band".If it was my decision,they could already be awarded as best live band of the year too.They jump,they fight and they play like there's no tomorrow.They rip up the stage like a tornado and their songs have an element of anger that a fair amount of people can relate to.Just take a look at their singer Frank Carter,it doesn't get any rawer.They're ugly,loud,and they won't go away!

Destruction !!

I am totally against violence.There's nothing I hate more than getting into a fight.But chaos and disorder...how can't you love that!! I know it's all fun till someone loses an eye,but isn't it liberating? Feel like the king of the world for a minute and burn down some cars,smash some windows and vandalize a couple of shops...They are gonna repair it later with my tax money anyway so let's at least join the party!! Any excuse is valid: your local team winning a title,a demonstration of climate change protesters,globalization,changes in the education system...
Here we have a video that The Exploited made out of their no-show gig in Montreal,Canada,after punk rockers rioted in the streets when a show by them and Total Chaos was canceled 'cause members of the band were denied entry into the country by customs officials.

Bad guys in sports: Dennis Rodman



Sports are full of bad boys.Mike Tyson went to jail for rape,Andre Agassi took crystal meth regularly during his carrer and Maradona snorted the whole Perú.I don't even need mentioning prostitutes,alcohol addictions or thrashed hotel rooms by people like Wayne Ronnie or Paul Gascoigne.But all of them lack the charisma of the ultimate bad guy in sports,Dennis Rodman.Although he's not bad,he's just misunderstood.Rodman was so insecure around women that he thought he was homosexual in his teens,was still a virgin when he was 20 years old,and finally had his first sexual experience with a prostitute;he described this as an unpleasant experience.But all that changed in his mature years: he married Carmen Electra in a state of intoxication, and the marriage was invalidated after just 10 days.This guy guy fucked Madonna but refused to suck her pussy.In Newport Beach,California,the police appeared over 70 times at his home because of loud parties.After aborting a suicide attempt in 1993,he reinvented himself as the prototypical "bad boy" and became notorious for numerous controversial antics.He dyed his hair in artificial colors, presented himself with many piercings and tattoos and regularly disrupted games by clashing with opposing players and officials.He's done bad action movies,been in Big Brother,had his own Tv-show...he's not high class but he sure is entertainment!!

Punkrock Porno: Rob Rotten




Ever thought that Punk and Porn can't go hand to hand? I betcha didn't.And here's proof that you were right: Rob Rotten,they guy with a huge mohawk and the word "Poison" tattooed along the top of his penis(he says it's a warning label for the chick who's about to have it shoved down her throat),has done all kinds of porn movies with Punkrock themes.You don't get to see people fuck to live punkrock all that often, so it's pretty cool.The movies feature lots of spiky mohawks,scuffed-up Doc Martens,tattoos,skateboards,and sex.Foreplay,communication,and kissing aren't on the menu,but sweaty,saliva-soaked girls'faces are."The best part about being in porn is that the ideas that used to get me in trouble—well,I get paid to make a movie out of them now" declares Rob.He makes the movies he wants to see.He started out in the adult film industry making movies exclusively with his now ex-girlfriend Rachel Rotten,a striking punk pinup with Bettie Page hair and creamy skin.Our friend Rob,admits he likes porn he can laugh at more than jerk off to,and talks openly about his drug use.He's definitely living the life."I get tattooed by numerous people.I don't tell them what to do.I just let them do whatever they want"
Here's a video with Rob and Rachel Rotten performing for you:

God bless America!!

I normally write about punkrock or things related to it,but I can't help but making an exception when I see things like this.Today I read an official study that says that 34% of spanish population think that the sun revolves around the earth.Quite stunning,but I am even more surprised when I see that 20% of those people were in university.I have always been fascinated by people that happily ignore what's around them,not caring about any kind of culture and living in ignorance,wondering in what world do they live in or what's wrong with the school system.But the spanish study is a joke compared to the video that follows.The funniest part is from minute 3:30 to the end,where we can see american citizens interviewed,answering some simple political and geographical questions.Someone thinks that Kofi Annan is a drink,Tony Blair an actor or that there are 10 Eiffel towers in Paris,.Ok till there,we all know USA is the most powerful country in the world and when you are that powerful you probably don't care about the rest of the human beings.But as patriotic as they are,when asked who was the first man on the moon they answer John Glen,or the Russians.In the end of the video we get to a full climax,when we see most people would support a war on a country they haven't even heard of.

GG Allin: Carnival of excess



What a character.He definitely was the real deal,the most decadent punk in the history of mankind.Allin was addicted to heroin and alcohol and generally abused any intoxicants provided to him,sometimes taking pills without even asking what they were.His hygiene was atrocious and he only rarely bathed.He was extremely individualist and anti-authoritarian.We all know his notorious live performances which typically featured wildly transgressive acts,such as Allin defecating and urinating onstage,rolling in feces and often consuming excrement,performing naked,committing self-injury,and attacking audience members.But there is another side of this anti-society monster that not everyone knows of: Instead of his usual scumfuck punk albums,he recorded a Country & honky-tonk rock & roll record,Carnival Of Excess.Only 100 hand numbered copies were made,and the result is superb.His cover of Warren Zevon's "Carmelita" is way better than the original.Even Hank Williams III covers a song of this record,the outstanding first track,outskirts of life.

You can download it here

Even more unkown is his also acoustic country ep The Troubled Troubadour,wich is also a must-have for any GG fan,pretty awesome work.

Download it here

Check out this classic GG video from the infamous DVD Hated,where we can enjoy a short clip of Carmelita and an interesting interview where he talks about his lifestyle and his possessions.The world needs people like you GG,live fast,die.

Backyard Babies calls it a day!!

The band that changed my life for good or bad is gonna call it quits after the next european tour.Little did I know before the night I first saw them now 10 years ago that I would be so shocked by their music,their looks and their bad-ass attitude that I would quit everything and move to Sweden to follow their steps.Too bad I didn't get the same results!! "I have been touring for 20 years and I'm satisfied with that.Now I wish for a different live,more secure and stable" -Nicke Borg declares to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet in an interview.The band hasn't been making a lot of money with the last 2 albums and Nicke wants to look for more stable ways to make a living.He also says that it has been quite a freeing decision for all the band members.Dregen just got married with the also swedish singer Pernilla Andersson.They are taking a break for an "unknown period of time".
That's quite sad news,but understandable,their carrer went down low since Making enemies is good.I'm not gonna talk about their last albums,I will always remember them as when they were the best band in the planet,1997-2001.Total 13 is probably one of the best punkrock albums ever made,all the rockers from my generation wanted to look like Dregen and be just as cool as him.They made an impact on my teenage mind and on thousands of other young and not so young people,being the coolest band in Europe for a decade.They leaded the Scandinavian wave of rock n roll,being the last ones surviving,when The Hellacopters and Gluecifer have already quited and Turbonegro being pretty much dead.They put Sweden in the map for the rest of the world,swedish people owes them that no one thinks anymore that they're country is called Switzerland,have polar bears in the street and 6 months a year without sun.

Thanks for the good times Backyard Babies !!

Jag gillar att skriva på svenska.Jag gillar att skriva på svenska för att ingen av mina spanska bekanta fattar ett skit om vad jag skriver om,fast det är inte många som läser min blog endå.Förmodligen ingen.De fattar väl inte engelska heller.
Jag har problem med att somna:innan jag ska släcka har jag känt den där sömnigheten och tänker "skönt,då blir det kanske sömn inatt för ovanlighetens skull" men nej,jag somnar inte.Någon som känner igen sig? Sömnig och trött som fan men kan inte sova? och utan speed.Inget kaffe heller,Jag kan inte sova förrens 4-5 am.Och om jag har tur och får somna tidigt då vaknar jag efter en timme och är pigg och pirrig som fan.Sen på dagen är man trött och allting blir mycket svårare:skolan,träningen..
På söndag kommer Ansue och Sara på besök.Jag saknar dem varenda dag,och har inte sett de på skitlänge.Hoppas att Sara inte blir bestulen på nåt den här gången.Fast det är roligt med europeiska människor som kommer till stan och lever i en mysvardags bubbla och litar på alla och tycker att livet är fint och "titta,Sagrada Familia!" och sen helt plötsligt har plånboken försvunnit.Spain is different.Fast det här är Catalunya,som är även more different.
Jag skrev en låt som tar plats på San Ramón,en gata i Barcelona som är fullt up med horor och narkomaner.Jag har inte spelat in den och kommer förmodligen inte att göra det,men jag kan dela texten med er

St.Ramone street

I saw the boots hanging on the wire
and I knew I was on the right spot
the pimps looked mean and the ho's looked tired
Marsella bar sold absinthe bombs

I tried to hold my wallet hard
shaky legs and my head low
No I didnt want more problems
just a heavy dose of blow

watch out in st ramone
the street where the police dont dare to walk
watch out in st ramone
the street where the police dont dare to walk

I went in this filthy flat
A guy was playing with a gun
the room was nasty,filled with rats
gave´em the money and I got the smack

run to the closest alley
It was time to feed my habit
but right then I realized
I just bought fake china white

watch out in st ramone
the street where the police dont dare to walk
watch out in st ramone
the street where the police dont dare to walk

Sorry and the Sinatras

Scott Sorry,bassist of The Wildhearts,ex-Amen and ex-Brides of destruction,is my favourite man out there at the moment.He gathered with some homeless punks(some of them ex-Trashlight Vision)and released the best action-rock-garage-punk album I've heard since Supershitty to the max.I thought the music I love the most was completely extinct,but this guy proves that there still are some drunk fuckups capable of playing adrenaline junkie rock and make you bang your head against the walls of your bedroom.They know they are barely gonna earn enough dough to pay for their strings,but they play as if their lives and their dinners depended on it.With most guys in the band probably still living with their parents at the age of 31,they give us a lesson of flat-out,high-energy,no-holds-barred,no-quarter-given,balls-to-the-wall,dirty and dangerous rock and roll,the way it's supossed to be.The album,Highball Roller,makes us wanna sleep in the car,get ugly tattoos and buy the cheapest heroine.Go in www.myspace.com/sorryandthesinatras and listen to "Gimme more".Now if it doesn't make you shake,you are either deaf or dead.Just a curiosity: Scott tattooed the word "sorry" on his throat after chicks kept being angry at him,so that he wouldn't have to carry on saying sorry to everyone.

Ginger and The Wildhearts

How could you not possibly love this band? The ultimate mixture between hard rock,punk and melodic pop music.Arguably the best band of the 90's.Never achieving comercial succes,they are condemned to live in tour busses and eat service station food.If we had to describe the band's story,unpredictable and turbulent would be the words.The band splits every 5 minutes, with the only constant member being the band's founder Ginger (real name David Walls), the singer, guitarist and predominant songwriter.The story is told like this: he got sacked from The Quireboys after other members didn't want him in the band because he drank too much and his guitar style was too heavy.He had a life-changing experience immediately after leaving Quireboys manager Sharon Osborne's office,when he fell down some stairs in a tube station clutching his only possession,a bottle of Jack Daniels.As the bottle fell,he decided that he would suicide if it broke,or start a new band if it didn't.The bottle was intact...True story or legend,he formed The Wildhearts,the best Punk-Hard Rock-Pop band in history.Love,friendship and drugs are the theme of most of their songs,always from an honest and down to earth point of view.Depression,drugs,drugs and more drugs have been a shadow over the band from the first day,specially heroin.Nowadays we can enjoy a drug-free Ginger(at least hard drugs-free)giving his best performance and touring around the world with his new Wildhearts line-up.Ginger is polite and friendly,nothing to do with this image of rock stars as being huge,muscle bound creatures that are part man,part myth.But hey,he is just as cool as them.

Drinks that kill (part 2)

ABSINTHE

The perfect drug.The artists' drink.A way to expand consciousness.Causes muscle spasms and anxiety disorders.Ever heard about the green fairy? just get a bottle of good old'absinth and it'll become your best friend.Illegal in the United States since 1912.Today, those who want the real stuff smuggle bottles from the Czech Republic, Spain, and Portugal-countries where absinthe is either produced or available.Absinthe was celebrated in paintings by Picasso, Degas, Van Gogh, and was eulogized by poets Verlaine, Baudelaire, and Rimbaud.The most controversial aspect of absinthe is the question of its so-called secondary effects.Oscar Wilde wrote:

“The first stage is like ordinary drinking, the second when you begin to see monstrous and cruel things, but if you can persevere you will enter in upon the third stage where you see things that you want to see, wonderful curious things.Take a top-hat! You think you see it as it really is. But you don't, because you associate it with other things and ideas. If you had never heard of one before,and suddenly saw it alone,you'd be frightened,or laugh.That is the effect absinthe has, and that is why it drives men mad".

Absinthe is portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug.Generally,it can best be described as a kind of heightened clarity of mind and vision warmed by the effect of the alcohol,a lucid drunkenness with an apparent clarity of mind commonly accounted for by it's combination of both stimulant and sedative qualities.Some users report unusually vivid dreams.The addiction to it is called absinthism.Traditionally served with water and a cube of sugar,the sugar cube is placed on an absinthe spoon, and the liquor is drizzled over the sugar into the glass of water.A personal advice: 3 glasses is enough.

Drinks that kill (part 1)

I hardly drink anymore.Makes me take wrong decissions and fucks my body up.But there was a time that I used to,and I was attracted by the mystic of certain drinks.The liquors that follow may not be the strongest in the market,but they sure can be one of the most dangerous due to other peculiarities:

KOSKENKORVA



Finland is a country of hard drinkers.Known for their big repertoire of great Vodkas,their first cause of death over cardio deseases and cancer is alcohol.But there is this one drink that has that little extra charisma,it's called Koskenkorva.
It flows at home parties and clubs,and the first time I drank it I didn't know I'd remember for life.Their tastiest variety is called Salmiakki,I really hate the flavour bout finnish people go crazy with it.It's creation was inspired by a chapter of The Simpsons where Homer Simpson invents a new cocktail, the Flaming Moe, which is a huge hit and earns Moe a fortune.The cocktail consisted of cough medicine amongst other ingredients.The original mixture of Salmiakki contains black licorice and cough medicine.An urban legend says there was a teenager in the 90's who suffered a heart attack as a result of drinking it.The finnish government banned the drink for 5 years,but that only made it even more attractive to the masses.It has some dangerous properties:it masks the presence of ethanol, and the drinker may not realize he is consuming drink with almost 40% alcohol by volume (80-proof),leading to more-than-possible over consumption.

JÄGGERMEISTER



In Germany and Scandinavia it's so hyped that it's a common practice to get a Jagger shot with every beer you ask for and get quickly shit-faced.I drank 12 shots in a 15 minute period,and the results were devastating.It tastes like dated mouthwash.At first people used to think it contained deer blood.A shot glass of Jägermeister dropped into a glass of Red Bull energy drink makes a cocktail called a Jägerbomb(aka Jägerbull or Bull Blaster).Originally marketed as a medicinal product,it was suggested as a cure for everything from coughing to digestive problems.It was used in World War II as a field anesthetic.It is also commonly used in small quantities around the home as an insect trap because flies and wasps are drawn to it.Drink VERY cold.

Embrace the mosh pit !

"Moshing or slamming refers to the activity in which audience members at live music performances aggressively push or slam into each other. Moshing is frequently accompanied by stage diving, crowd surfing, mic swinging, instrument smashing, and headbanging"

Ohh the pogo !! now that is fun!! What can be more liberating than pushing and hitting everyone around you,surf over a crowd,or go on stage and jump into a sea of people?Sure you can end with the ocasional broken bone here and there but I've been doing it for years and I only got a broken lip once and the unevitable bruises all over the body.Some people can't understand this kind of dance and they see it as bunch of retarded cunts being violent,but as I see it,it's totally the opposite.It's a release of bad energy,you gather all your problems and frustrations and take'em all out at once,ending up with a peaceful feeling inside of you.I'm not saying that smashing agressively the people around you in a concert is something we should be proud of,but I feel it's a good way to let loose and get your kicks,while others do it picking up fights at clubs,beating up their wives,or using a gun.
In The Filth and the Fury, Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious claims that he invented the pogo sometime around 1976. At punk shows in the early days of London's punk scene, Vicious wanted to dance to the Sex Pistols before he was a Pistol himself but he couldn't dance so he started jumping up and down and pogoing was born. Whether Vicious actually invented the dance or not, the pogo quickly became closely associated with punk rock.An uninformed person might get the impression that the dancers are attacking one another. People sometimes get injured when pogoing, but, more often than not, pogoers who fall to the ground are helped up instead of getting stepped on.There is a general understanding that the pogo is fun, not a fight,and it is taboo to hurt in purpose.The moshing technics have evolved during the years,but I would say circle pits are my favourite and most fun.Walls of death would be the most brutal in my opinion.Here is a video and some pics of the highest stage diving caught on camera,performed by the singer of the californian band Boy hits car.Stay in the pit!

Silver

Ever heard about Silver?best band of the underworld in my eyes.As I'm flying to Oslo to see them for the ¿6th? time next friday,I thought it was a good opportunity to introduce 'em to all of you.Who said love at first sight doesn't exist? This Norwegian band blew my mind the first time I heard them,clever punkrock with shades of metal straight from hell,mainly inspired by the anger and frustration of Peter Larsson(bassist)and Tommy(guitarist),and of course their lead singer,Ivar Nikolaisen"Blanco",who leaves in a cabin with no water or electricity in the outskirts of the forgotten city of Oslo.Dark and depressing as the Norwegian winter,Silver's lyrics and music penetrate into a world of deep torture with the inner-self and the incapabilty of fitting in a society based on vanity and selfishness and a global world manipulated by the media.Silver don't give us no hope,but at least makes us realize we live in a rotten world and what people care about is not what's important.Personally,as identified as I feel with their songs because of my tragic and pessimistic idividuality,they provide my negativity and depressing state of mind with a certain romantic feeling that makes me feel attached to that hopeless-ity in some way,and surrounds me with a contradictory feeling of happines for not belonging neither wanting to belong to a fake sinking world.My devotion to the band is very strong,due to their intelligence and humility.Silver is raw,shitty,incredibly brutal,endless mental decadence.A band like this could only emerge from a city like Oslo,where dealers sell drugs in the central city square in front of the police and the only joy you can have during 8 months of freezing temperatures is getting as high as you can as soon as the weak sun goes down.Lenge leve Silver!!
