What's coming up?

My vacation is coming up this week. I am off from work all week and we are going to Lancaster, Pennsylvania for three days. I am not sure what I doing for the rest of the week although I really to clean some things around the house. I have some great guest bloggers lined up to do the posts from Monday through Wednesday. I hope you enjoy them and I will be back to posting Thursday. Once I am back I will try to put up my 20 year old album review at the end of this week. This month it's Motorhead's Orgasmatron.

***Here is a question for you. If you had to have a framed print of any album cover on your living room wall then what it be? Let's say you had to keep it there for at least a year.

Considering I have a family and I don't want to scare the little ones, that would eliminate a lot of scary stuff. I am having problems choosing just one so I'll say it's a toss up between AC/DC's Let there be rock and Iron Maiden's Powerslave.

If it was in my room, I would have Brutal Truth's Sounds of the Animal Kingdom, which I think is one of the best album covers. If it were in my living room, I might pick something from Yes, like Relayer or Yessongs.

Rock'n'Roll Over would be too easy for me as it's my favorite. Here's a few:

KISS - Dynasty
Iron Maiden - Piece Of Mind
Dio - Holy Diver
Iced Earth - Something Wicked This Way Comes

I do have a framed poster of Saxon - Crusader, the full artwork. It was hanging above my desk until I got a taller one and it was blocked.

Van Halen's Women & Children First - sentimental reasons more than 'art', I suppose. Dave's arm muscles are a plus. ;)

Well in my room I have two album covers hanging which are The Who's "Quadrophenia" and ELP's "Brain Salad Surgery." For the living room which the whole family would see I would probably hang King Crimson's "In the Court of the Crimson King" even though it really isn't that "pretty" looking. It is probably my most favorite album cover. Either that or what Fred Charles said Yes' "Relayer"

I always had music posters in my room when I was teenager. I had some of the same ones up when I was in college as well. Currently the only things we have on the wall are pictures of the kids and some shelves with varying items on thm. At some point we hope to remodel the basement and have some rooms put in down. When we do that I may get a poster or two and have it framed and put on a wall down there. There is also a currently black wall that's straight ahead when you are going down the steps to the basement. That's a place that might be good for a framed poster. Maybe one day after repainting the wall I may looking into having a poster of either AC/DC, Maiden, Zeppelin, Rush or Motorhead put up there.

Fuzz-Thanks.

That should have said blank wall instead of black wall from my last comment.

Enjoy your time away; we'll look forward to your safe return.

Metal album's I'd consider include Iron Maiden's Powerslave, Rush's 2112, and Tesla's Mechanical Resonance.

I would pick Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" 12" cover. I still have that old subway poster that used to be on my wall when I lived with my parents and I have spent 13 years of marriage trying to get it on the living room wall!

I'd say Alice in Chains' "Dirt" would be fitting.
