Ah, here's one now...
Mark (not his real name) was the living embodiment of heavy metal when we were in high school together. In fact, I never knew his real name for probably the first six months we were friends because he always went by "Blade." Whereas a lot of my friends were into Metallica, Blade was into every legit metal band up to the invention of hair spray that characterized Mtv from about 1988 onward.
Well, he still calls himself "Blade." He still likes metal. Following Hurricane Katrina, he was displaced to Arkansas where he's now in a band he describes as "Southern Devil Metal Music." I'm sure this goes over well with the locals. My personal favorite part of his MySpace profile was his "Heroes" section which reads:Satan: for championing free thought and questioning the perception of Jesus.Maybe one or more of these somehow explain the guns? The caption below the picture reads: "To prepare for peace is to secure for war." If you can name the band, album, and/or track on which this line was used as a lyric, then you're Blade's kind of people.
No way! You know Betty too? I'm doing a Time-Traveling Tuesday about her next week. That is so weird.
