the wall and some pests

warning might offend you tube tuesday


yes dear reader, it’s slipknot. not your average tbaoo fare i know, but i do like this song and i think the video is ef’n amazing. i caught the singer getting a tattoo on “ny ink” to commemorate the recent death of the bass player and it reminded me of this wondrous piece of music and film making so .. youtube tuesday continues. this might offend the underage ( watch with parental guidance josh ) and some of those more attuned to christian rock or cheesy tunes, oh well it takes all types don’t it. i’m a different type.
