    Recently bought a few KISS albums from their 70s catalog (the Hall of Fame induction controversy got me reading up on them and I realized that while I liked them as a kid and saw them play live twice - both were partial shows at Jimmy Kimmel Live and a hockey game at Dodger Stadium, respectively - I only had one their albums: Destroyer) and have been listening to "2000 Man," a song on Dynasty. Ace sings this Rolling Stones cover better than Mick did. So I've decided that this Halloween, I'll be costuming myself as Ace from the cover of Dressed to Kill, sans wig since I shave my head. I think I'll also pick up the recent Dressed to Kill figures for the occasion. I always wanted the old Mego figures, but never got them and probably won't ever.

    "2000 Man" is a great song. The version from Unplugged is excellent, too. I'm not going to get caught up in taking sides in their feuds, but Ace is a great musician who probably would be taken a lot more seriously if he'd never been in KISS. (Not saying they're not awesome, but you don't think of them as virtuosos.) Then again, mostly no one would ever have heard of him....

    I saw Ace play a few years ago at a casino in Green Bay and while I didn't know that many of his songs I thought it was good and enjoyed the songs I didn't know as much as the ones I did. Plus I had a free ticket from 2-1B so that helped as well.

    Since we're on a Kiss thing here I fired up Paul Daniel "Ace" Freely's cover of the Sweet hit song Fox On The Run.

    We're an American Band - Grand Funk Railroad. Because the '70s era malaise rock never dies, apparently.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    Picked up the Killer's "best of" CD (finally...) today, and my favorite song of theirs, "Human," is currently playing. Need to play it in class sometime as a good example of personification, metonymy, or symbolism.

    I Love Rock n Roll - Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. I picked up a trio of MP3s, the others being Bad Reputation and Do You Wanna Touch Me. Thought about picking up the newest album as well, has a really good sound, not as uneven as most of their albums, but trying to be frugal.
