Judas Priest - Screaming for Vengeance (1982)
Heavy Metal

The title of the album was brought about simply by the artwork. First of all, we had this thing about vengeance; we want vengeance of some sort. Not retaliation vengeance, but vengeance in a musical way, in how vengeance sounds musically, and the original concept was, I came up with a thing like I could see something like with claws and talons like vengeance coming in to grab at something, and then it’s elaborated onto with the metal Hellion. And screaming was put on because this bird is coming down with its beak open and it looks like its screaming, so it’s SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE.“

Bucket List #9: Visit the French Quarter of New Orleans

Calling All Test Subjects and Portal 2 Fans!

What’s going on?

All test subjects currently or formerly testing in Sector T(umblr) of the Internet Vault are hereby invited to join the Aperture Anniversary Testing Initiative. In 2015 the Portal 2 Anniversary will take place on April 18th and 19th. This event is for all members of the Portal fandom, whether young or old, new or experienced!

What will we do?

There will be a number of contests and activities for all parts of the fandom and we will announce them over the following weeks and months. The submissions and the bulk of the competition will actually take place in the months before the anniversary, with the results and finale on the actual date. Rules for each contest will be posted with each announcement, and for some of the contests we will be offering physical prizes.

What can we do now?

In order for this all to work we need participants, contestants, and judges! This is where you guys come in. On our page you can find general descriptions of the contests and activities to come, along with some basic rules that apply to all contests. You’ll also find an applications page where you can apply right now to be one of our judges and take an active part in shaping the anniversary events. Bear in mind that contest entries will not be accepted until the contests actually are posted.

Roll up your jumpsuit sleeves and shine your longfall boots, because we have a lot in store for next year!
