Everytime I listen to this song, I feel proud of being a HIM’s fan. This song is musically huge, only bands with high quality and talent can make a song so long that you won’t even notice the time passing by, it seems like various songs into one, combining a badass guitar, a deep low voice and lyrics, and shows an incredible sync with the band. 

By the way, Linde is ROCKING the guitar in this show. More than normal, in my opinion.

Digital Versatile Doom DVD - HIM Live at The Orpheum Theater 2008.

PS: Did any of you guys ever noticed that the dvd begins playing a Dexter’s song? Hahaha. 

Hope you all have a good night.

whom else here listens to music while they walk and imagines little tiny creatures with drumsticks and trumpets dancing along and banging out tunes on garbage can lids and other environmental features à la STOMP (1994-present @ the Orpheum Theater in NYC. Buy tickets at the Orpheum Theatre Box Office or stomponline.com today!)

Ventriloquist Jules Vernon with his family of puppets. Vernon’s act consisted of seven puppet characters who would engage in humorous dialogue with each other as well as Vernon.

As time passed, however, Vernon began to lose his eyesight, and, according to correspondence, he eventually went blind on Christmas morning, 25 December 1920, in the middle of a performance at the Orpheum Theater in Washington. However, this setback did not hinder Vernon’s ventriloquist act in any way. He continued to travel and perform, never revealing to any of his audiences that he was blind.

Houdini in Minneapolis, 1923

On February 7, 1923, a crowd gathered outside the Tribune Annex building (4th St. S at Marquette Ave.) as Harry Houdini dangled head-first from a rope, 100 feet above the pavement. The escape artist was strapped inside of a straitjacket belonging to the Minneapolis police. In less than two minutes, Houdini wriggled out of the straitjacket, dropped it into the crowd and received his applause. Then he headed to the Hennepin Orpheum Theater for his matinee performance, during which he liberated himself from a locked Chinese water torture cell.
