#105016 I used to be a graphic designer but left the field over 10 years ago. Occasionally I get the itch to do some fun layouts. Not often but it does happen.

#105162 Burning Witches is bringing us Phantom Vs Fire - Swim this Friday on cassette. It's a pretty great little album, it's been available from Phantom Vs Fire bandcamp digitally for a few months now. Highly recommended.

I think they only made 70 copies so it was insanely limited. I grabbed one directly from burning witches bandcamp but there is still vinyl available. It's a great album.


I can't wait to get my copies of Swim and Midnight Demon, they should be here some time in the next month or two.

Love the Metal Gear design.


I snapped this up at 1030 Zulu time. Looking forward to turning its cogs.

PS - What do you mean by "Metal Gear design"?

@deafmetal is correct. Also the grid in the background reminds me of Metal Gear VR Missions.

I'm torn on buying this tape. The music is good but I just grabbed Spun's newest release last week and I think I'm going to grab that new Goblin reissue. Not enough money!

#106216 My introduction to Metal Gear was back in '88 on the NES:

This game pretty much ruled my summer vacation that year. I remember I had enough paper route pay to pick up one game, and I was trying to find Bionic Commando on a rare visit to a KB Toys store but they were sold out. This was my #2 pick at the time.

Airwolf blew my young mind back in the 80's. I remember trying to build lego versions of the copter back then. Black bricks were highly valued on my block for this purpose.
