Why I'm buying Clawfinger's newest album

  • On Tuesday I poked fun at the lyrics of a song by Swedish heavy metal band Clawfinger, then today I see that the lead singer of said band actually left a comment on my blog. How cool is that?
    So, in response I have pre-ordered Clawfinger's latest album.

  • My dad has written a response column to the column I wrote last week.

  • I'm sorry, but I'm afraid we're going to have to kick you off the squad. One male fantasy at a time only, please. Anything more and you may cause men's brains to explode.

  • Sensationalize much? Here's the most half-assed news copy I've seen today: "A twisted crew of Colombian drug dealers turned purebred puppies into cuddly drug couriers by surgically implanting them with packets of liquid heroin."

  • "A duck loves bread but he does not have the capability to buy a loaf; that's the biggest joke on the duck ever."

    And that story just won't die.

    That's way cool. Clawfinger were one of my favourite bands when I was younger, I've got a copy of 'Deaf Dumb, Blind' (brilliant) and a CD of 'Use Your Brain' (not as good - one or two good songs). Their video's were quite crazy.

    I'd be well chuffed.

    Clawfinger are now my favourite Swedish heavy metal band. Official.

    It's all about the fans, man.

    Haha .. I love it how your father replied to your column. Did your father just surprise you with it? I see where you got your writer's talent though! I find his work just as witty as yours and yeah, I would have never expected your basement to have a fireplace and all!

    Can your cute little niece write too?

    Chris Cope said...

    Of course she can write. Remember "The Adventures of Mrs. Picup?"

    I am so impressed with your dad! And I love how you're both obsessed with Kiera Knightley. Very sweet.
    Is your dad on payroll now?

    That last link to the comedian at the end was hilarious. I don't know of any Clawfinger, but I'll probably go check it out later on at work. I like heavy metal. Metallica! And I think Hooters girls should be allowed to be cheerleaders. There ain't no shame in that game cuz it's just waitressing in the required uniform. It was great to read the column from your pop's perspective. Makes me think what my dad might write about me.

    Your Dad's column was great! You guys are birds of a feather.

    PS - Hedberg was comic genius. I really hate that I never got the chance to see him live.

    Is your dad as funny as you are, Chris?

    Astrid said...

    Oh, I LOVE that story of your niece! I bet she just learned all the colors of the rainbow at school, right? Is there a story with numbers too?

    Wow is that all it takes to make people buy our albums, I guess I'd better try and find all the existing blogs that include a line or two about the band and then post there!:D No but seriously man thanx, I just hope you've downloaded some more stuff & listened to it so you know what you're buying, I wouldn't want you to be disappointed! Happy birthday by the way, I guess you must be a pisces just like my son who turned 4 yesterday! Don't worry 30 ain't so bad! Take care/Zak
