Lambgoat Blog

The following blog is solely the work of Mr. Lambgoat himself. Nothing of consequence is likely to occur here, other than the innermost thoughts of an extremely ____ individual.

It doesn't seem like the safest thing to do, but a man was spotted crowd surfing in a wheelchair two days ago during a Parkway Drive show in North Carolina. I could be mistaken, but I think he falls out of the wheelchair at about 35 seconds. You can have a look here:

I mean, it's cool that the guy was doing his thing, but wheelchairs just don't seem to mix well with metalcore and moshing. Then again, wheelchair crowd surfs can end badly at any type of show (see below).

That guy (Anthony Vincent) from that website (YouTube) who does the cover things ('Ten Second Songs') is back, and he's tackled the Adele hit, "Hello," in 25 styles, including Deftones, Dimmu Borgir, and Alice In Chains. You can watch below, curse us below, both, or neither.

The Ghost Inside Gofundme $130,000

Rob Scallon has just debuted a new track he wrote using only one fret. Don't be fooled though; this isn't the 0101011000 djent song you're expecting, but something more traditional.

I have no idea why, but a uniformed police officer appeared on-stage with Vital Remains at the band's show in Sanford, FL on Friday, November 13 to help introduce "Dechristianize." He may or may not still be employed as a policeman. For the record, he still SHOULD have a job, but in close-minded and uptight America, I could see some asshole making an issue out of this.

UPDATE: The police officer has been fired.

The video below is from today's Medal of Honor ceremony at the White House. File this under things you never thought you'd hear the President of the United States say.

Hardcore Sweet Cupcakes

Official press release:

The winners of Food Networks' Cupcake Wars are at it again. This time, owners and creators, Jeremy and Nicole Braddock are bringing their award winning Hardcore Sweet cupcakes, baked goods and custom ordered cakes to Manchester, CT. with a grand opening celebration on Friday, November 13th.

Located right inside the Shoppes at Buckland Hills Mall in Manchester (near JC Penney and Yankee Candle), Hardcore Sweet felt the need to bring the hardcore sweetness to this area of Connecticut to service customers there locally and continue to spread the word about their brand.

"We chose Manchester because we wanted to be in a different section of the state. We will have about 15 flavors daily to choose from that will be our staples at this mall location, and then we will run specials and seasonal flavors monthly that will rotate." states co-owner, Jeremy Braddock.

With roots in the Hardcore/Punk scene, Jeremy and Nicole created a business model that started with their home kitchen, one cupcake truck and enthusiasm to create delectable treats with this genre of music in mind. With over 115 flavors and counting, they have developed the most incredibly tasting cupcake, no matter which one you try.

"Our roots will always start from the Hardcore/Punk scene, and I think a lot of our following knows us from that. We had to show some Hardcore Pride by honoring some of our favorite bands (and flavors) by putting them on the Manchester menu. Some include: Hatebreed (Peanut Butter Perseverance), Madball Mounds, Gorilla Biscuits (Vegan Banana and Peanut Butter), Clobbering Lime (for Sick of it All)."

The Manchester location will give fans of Hardcore Sweet along with new discoverers a local outlet to get their fix, but a chance to also plan creative options for their own events. Ranging from weddings, events, parties, and corporate functions, these can be catered or have the vehicles visit on-site.

"We see this as a great location to market our truck and caboose, and have people think of us for their next big corporate event or wedding. We are still a fairly new business, and we are lucky enough to keep growing and getting offered to do some great events. We like to think outside the box, and we want to be memorable for everyone that walks through the mall. Hardcore Sweet is Crazy to Classy, we do it all. We are beyond cupcakes."

Yesterday, Tool guitarist Adam Jones took to Instagram to share an old photo of he, Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne, and Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton on an unidentified log flume ride. There's not much else to say, other than, this is a great photo. If it were on a t-shirt, I'd wear it.

Orange Amplifiers recently put out a comedy short to promote their Micro Dark guitar amp.

"When Bobby receives a Micro Dark for Christmas he begins dreaming big...too big. Will he come back to reality or will he lose himself in the vices of a rock n' roll lifestyle?"

The video features Brent Hinds of Mastodon and Juan Montoya of Killer Be Killed and can be seen here:
