Former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr passed away recently from M.S. 😦
He played on my main four favorite Maiden albums, Iron Maiden, Killers, Maiden Japan, and The Number of the Beast. I used to play the hell-out those albums growing-up, to the point that I have to buy them all over again. Keep in mind that these were the vinyl record days. 😎
It is good to see other bands paying their respects to such a great drummer. Iron Maiden and Paul Di’anno posted on Facebook their respects as well. 😥
Clive Burr R.I.P. 😦
A Native American man criticized protesters at a rally against illegal immigration.
I don’t like to get too political on my blog, but I have Native American blood running through my veins. I think he called like it is! 😎
It just amazes me that many people don’t realize that this country is made of immigrants. 🙄

I have never heard a cat sounding like this. 😯
I think this cat has some serious mental problems. 😮 He looks disturbed or afraid of something.
What do you think?
Wishing everyone a happy thanksgiving day! 🙂

Crazy article I found on Reddit. 😮
Some people just go way too overboard with these things. 😆 😯
Regardless of your party affiliation it is important to vote today. The stakes are higher than previous elections. 😮
We are facing difficult times and the two main parties have very different definitions about how the country should run.
Either be President Barack Obama or Governor Mitt Romney is your choice to elect who will run this country.
So go vote! 😐 👿
