So today was the anniversary of the death of Ronnie James Dio, which I wasn't aware of until somebody reminded me only a few hours ago. I thought today felt especially shitty and unmetal, more so than usual. Nothing really went right for me and my motivation to do anything today was all but non-existent. The balance of the universe was just totally off all day. My heart still hangs heavy for the unsurmountable loss to the metal community, and I think the best way for me to remember the forefather of truly epic heavy metal would be to gloat about how he more or less agreed with my last violation in a 2006 interview:
Straight from the man himself. Dear all 50 states, you still have to blow me.
