Camping sites?

neeuqdrazil and I are thinking about going camping on the weekend of July 17/18. Any suggestions on where good places to go are? We went to Rockwood last year, and while it was nice, we feel like we pretty much did everythign to do there last time. We also ended up having the flodo lights from the bathrooms pointing at our camp site, so our spot was overly well lit for camping.

52 Weeks of Music And Lunch: week 11

Food



Friday May 21, 2010
Chicken sandwich. Two think slices of PC Potato Scallion bread, a chicken breast left over from Wednesday's rotisserie chicken dinner, with sweet with heat mustard and a mug of milk to drink.

I love that bread more than is wise. As a meal, it could have used a side of vegetables.

Music



Album: Zombie Girl's Blood, Brains and Rock n' Roll

Genre: Industrial? ZG's other album is more clearly in the Aggrotech/Electro-Industrial area, but this one is a bit more rock.

Similar Bands: Well, half of Zombie Girl is Sebastian Komor of Combichrist and Komor Kommando, and that influence definitely shows, though this album isn't nearly as beat heavy as either of those bands. The "horror songs" aspect to it recalls Voltaire and Rob Zombie with a lot of callbacks to classic horror movie soundtracks and the occasional touch that feels like something from a Danny Elfman soundtrack.

Review: Honestly, I liked Back From the Dead much more. I miss the heavy beats. I saw Zombie Girl in, I think, 2007 during the tour for Blood, Brains and Rock n' Roll at the zombie-themed Dark Rave. While it's defintely listenable, it did not blow my mind, then or now. Still, I can't say my collection didn't need more zombie rock.

Playlist Potential: Nothing screams out to be added to any of my playlists just yet.
