Those who know me know I’m a metalhead first. Things like Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Queensryche – these are my jams. But unlike most of my metal brethren, that’s not ALL I like. In fact, in the right frame of mind, I can like almost anything. However one of my favorite treats I go […]
I’ve been a fan of Doctor Who since 1983, and watched every episode the show’s ever put out (862 as of now), even including reconstructions of the lost 1960’s episodes.
