Weekly Recap Jan. 17-Jan. 23

Let's see, what happened this week? Well, very little in my little world. I had my end of the year review with the partners at my law firm. It went pretty well, I'm happy to say. Some constructive criticism, but for the most part praise. I continued work on a sexual assault case, which will probably be plead out on Monday. I went to the County Bar Association meeting and had some steak and beer. Good stuff.

My fiancee and I went to see Legion last night. It was pretty decent. Similar story to The Prophecy trilogy, with some of the same characters. It was not as good as The Prophecy trilogy, but it was bloodier and a hell of a lot more violent. Sign of a good horror movie. My fiancee wasn't completely freaked by it, which is good. They had the trailer for the new A Nightmare on Elm Street movie which doesn't look as horrendously awful as I originally predicted. I was very impressed by Jackie Earle Haley in Watchmen so this could be pretty decent.

She and I went to Omaha on Sunday for her to meet her parents and attend a Bridal Fair. I tried to go to a few music stores, but found two were now closed, and one was very small and did not have a separate metal section. I did go to the Homer's in the Old Market area which remains a high quality music store. It's too bad I don't get to Omaha much anymore.

I bought two albums this week: Evile's Infected Nations and Sarcolytic's Thee Arcane Progeny.

In the world of metal this week:
-We had three deaths this last week. Former Broken Hope singer Joe Ptacek committed suicide. Broken Hope has never been a terribly well-known band. I myself have heard of them, but not heard them much. Two members of the U.K. band After Death, Leon Villalba and Timothy Kennelly, drowned while on tour in Brazil. One of the bodies has not been found. I have not heard this band much either. My condolences go out to the remaining band members, family, and friends of these three men in their time of tragedy.

-Drummer Stefan Westerberg left Carnal Forge, leaving the Swedish thrash metal band without a single original member. Not too many bands out there like that.
