I have so much to update on about my time across the pond (too much, actually), but I need to take care of all kinds of housekeeping before I do. So for now, here’s this.
This came across my feed yesterday, and a friend sent it along today, so I figured I would pass it forward. Some would be shocked that a member of GWAR is an established academic with a PhD in Music, but I would actually be more shocked if nobody in GWAR had a PhD. They’ve always seemed weirdly high-concept to me, and this talk from their longtime bassist and vocalist (out of costume) confirms how they’re as important to their hometown of Richmond, VA as they are to heavy metal, theatrics, and the fake blood industry.
