Shot of the Day #320: The Arm of Urungus

Shot with iphone, click to enlarge.

Can't talk much about the evening's events (hence the somewhat cryptic image), although it was a historic one being able to sit down and chat with THE Oderus Urungus, lead singer and Intergalactic Overlord of the iconic metal group, GWAR. I've been a fan of GWAR's since I saw them splattering blood on the innocent in THRASHER magazine almost 20 years ago, and after their album RAGNAROK, I was a fan for life. So, Green and I (thanks to Kelli from Metal Blade) met with Sir Oderus (AKA Dave Brockie) tonight to discuss an idea we had for him, and he was very excited...which in turn, only made us MORE excited. We then got to hang backstage and gulp Jager, surrounded by all the GWARness they bring on the felt more like a Horror Film props dept than a rock show, but Adam and I were like kids in a candy store...a candy store that sells jelly beans made of BLOOOD. So strange being this behind the curtain, but that's what life is...the yearning for those strange moments. This was one of them for sure.

Cross your fingers folks...if all goes well, you'll get to know a LOT more about Dr. Urungus very soon.


PS: Funny story Dave told us; we gave him our films and he saw Rollins on my cover; "Hey did you know Henry used to beat me up when I was a kid, he and Ian used to kick the crap out of us back in the day. Ah memories". Too funny. Hope he doesn't hold a grudge when watching WT2...
