Got a big kick out of this article:
"The most gifted teenagers often love heavy metal music because it relieves the pressure of being smart, says a British psychologist who has boosted the images of bright kids and metalheads together."

Ah, I know. I'm a softy for good ol' Iron Maiden and Judas Priest and the Scorpions and...well, I could go on. But for someone who grew up loving science fiction and fantasy, these were the best bands to listen to. What could be more cool than Priest singing about Metal Gods? Maiden doing their 13 minute epic version of The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner? I still listen to those bands, especially since I've been chipping away on a Victorian project. And Maiden's last album (did I just write Album) is one of their best.
Up the Irons! No Sleep 'til Hammersmith!
P.S. On a completely unrelated note, isn't the new Battlestar Galactica a great show? Just finished watching the 1st season. Now have to save up my loonies and toonies to get the next season.
