Yesterday I gave Clapton's _461 Ocean Boulevard_ a listen for the first time, all the way through (four times). I thought it okay, but nothing to get excited about. Today I'm listening to _Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs_ by Derek and the Dominos for the first time. Three songs in, and all I can think is HOLY CRAP, and I haven't even gotten to "Layla," "Little Wing," or "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" yet. What an album.
12 minutes of people yelling SLAYER! to win a contest. I was in the foulest mood until I watched this; now I feel pretty good. Maybe I need to put some old-school thrash in the headphones today.
I like the guy in church genuflecting and saying "HECKING SLAYER!!"

Playing around with IG stories, I made a little countdown of the 10 best albums of 1982 (the year I was 13). If you have an IG account, you can view it here. What do you think of my list? :)
Shared by Ne Obliviscaris on the band's FB page. Pretty funny.
Also, if you haven't heard them you really must. :)
Happy birthday to my favorite guitarist of all time.
