GWAR Comes to Baltimore

Balsac the Jaws of Death

GWAR appeared in Baltimore this past weekend on their 2014 Eternal Tour. They addressed the absence of lead singer Oderus Urungus, and introduced Blothar and Vulvatron, each capable of spewing their own fluids all over the audience. I don’t think a first-timer would have a lesser experience with the new line-up. It was different, but it wasn’t for better or for worse. The crowd seemed to completely enjoy it, and it did sell out, so the fans are still there, and they’re still cracking their heads to rock out with the best scumdogs in the universe. Click below for my photos, which should at least induce internal bleeding.

Review: Playmobil Ferris Wheel (5552) and motor

Fair scene

My wonderful wife and adoring son knew exactly what I wanted for my birthday and surprised me with the Playmobil Ferris Wheel (with optional motor). I love the fair. I’ve photographed our County Fair for local blogs and TV station for the last few years. I love everything that the fair means for a community, and the people it brings together. There is some old school Americana at the fair, and I usually go four or five times through its run. And you know I love playmobil, so when playmobil hit the fair, I was fixated. Check out my pics below, and see the video of the lights and motor in action.

After a short intermission, the curtains opened to an elaborate Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory-themed set and the addition of a xylophonist and a cellist to add to the sound of the second set, where Primus played through their latest album, Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, covering all the music from the classic film “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.” Highlights included the various Oompa Loompa ditties where a pair of Oompa Loompas came out to dance.
