I have developed a serious taste for a certain flavor of metal, and have a delightful list of bands to recommend to people who are abusing Evanescence badly. Nightwish is far less whiny, Leaves' Eyes are beautiful, I like Plumb a lot, Elis has a lot of the same sound, Lacuna Coil is good but well-known and perhaps somewhat overused too, Inkubus Sukkubus is excellent, Sis loves Tristania and so do I. Sirenia is good. ... and probably onyxrising has more random recommendations.
Things caught fire at work last night. Insanity. Scary stuff. It smelled like burned wiring, Homie G Supervisor said. I totally do not blame him for forgetting one of his pieces of paperwork, especially because he came this morning and gave me the data. Poor guy. (He was, IIRC, #1 in charge last night.)
