Category Archives: Tuesday Trivia
This week for Tuesday Trivia I have a short, meta and pretty kickass “Did you know?” for you guys (and that one girl from Thailand).
Make the jump!
Originally, the plan for this Tuesday Trivia was to write something that would tie in with Guido’s awesome death metal week project. Unfortunately, I had the idea of looking up funny death metal bands (yeah, they exist), which led to funny death metal band names, which further led me to look for just generally idiotic metal band names.
You can probably figure out what this is building up to: grind.
If there ever was a genre that really pushed the boundaries on all things gross, it was grindcore/death grind/gore grind/whatever grind. I’m fairly certain around 100% of them are, you know, actually kidding, which makes it kind of okay, I guess… Either way, make the jump.
We’ve written extensively about Kiss products, from kaskets to kondoms. We obviously also made plenty of fun regarding them. I mean, the only reason I’m posting the trailer for their movie “Kiss Meets The Phantom of the Park” above is so you can laugh even if you find my humor weak and this article lame. Plus some of you might find that corn-fest new, so I’m doing a double job, really.
After you’ve done laughing, get ready to take a look at one thing that bears the Kiss name that I could actually check out that might not be complete shit (hence the trivia). Read on to find out what it is.
Tuesday Trivia took an unexpected break the past two weeks, so we’re back with vengeance. Going where no metalhead has ever gone before — outside of our basements and doing sports.
What is the most metal sport out there?. Make the jump and prepare to have your mind blown.
They say you learn something new every day, which is completely true. Now, take a word of advice from me, it’s not always a good thing. I learned something today, and I had to watch a Rhapsody video because of it. *queue symphonic power metal joke*
Having said that, I leave it up to you to make the decision, if you want to take the risk, make the jump and deal with the consequences.
I just stumbled on this article which details Tom Morello’s early days in Los Angeles, where he moved after graduating from Harvard. The funny part? After the jump!
Now this is a story
All about how Tuesday Trivia
Got twisted upside down
And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right there
I’ll tell you how Dose of Metal started covering
Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Yeah, my rap skillz are off the fucking hook… We are covering Will Smith for this week’s Tuesday Trivia, though. Fo’ real-real.
There’s something pretty weird about Nicolas Cage. His movies are either pretty good, or pretty shit. Or Ghost Rider, which is a category of its own.
What the hell does any of that have to do with metal, you might ask? Well, as part of a short series of trivia articles I’m thinking of starting, I’ll be going places outside of metal to look for metal. Make the jump now, because it’s Tuesday Trivia time, bitch.
Oh, the things I do for this website. Remember a few months back when I got some help from a friend and did an article on djent? Well, that was actually kinda fun, because I got to ‘know’ Animals As Leaders better and I truly think they’re an awesome band.
What is definitely not that much of fun is doing this one today. Taking into account that djent is popular in the scene masses, I took another typical scene genre, did a quick Google search and hoped it would yield results, and holy shit, here’s another Tuesday Trivia covering things that will most likely annoy you. But someone’s gotta do it.
Here at Dose of Metal we are not only musical. We are also socially aware. That’s why we’re devoting this week’s Tuesday Trivia to the recent UK rioting.
It’s a horrible thing that’s happening there right now. The youth of the country is facing so many problems, it was evident at one point riots would errupt.
Here’s a breakdown of the reasons for the recent protests:
- Some people apparently couldn’t install 50+ Mb internet in their suburban London districts. Shameful.
- Playstation Network was down for over a month. The rage built up, in the meantime kids started live action streetfighting.
- Local scene shop ran out of hairdryers. All the scene kids shaved their heads in protest and turned skinhead over night.
- New Limp Bizkit album made a divide between the metal and rap crews. Shootouts were inevitable.
- People started getting aggravated due to long queues for iPad 2 and white iPhone 4.
In case you didn’t figure it out, I’m being fucking sarcastic. This is the most shameful shit Britain’s seen in ages, downright looting, and it’s hurting legitimacy of, you know, real protests in the real world, with real problems.
What does this have to do with metal? Well, you know the drill. Jumpdafuckup.
