I don’t know about you people, but I think tattoos are badass. Maybe not all of them, but most. I don’t have any myself, but I know I want one. I just haven’t had any good ideas. If I’m going to fork out the cash and live with it for the rest of my life, I have to like what I get.

However, because tattoos aren’t really considered “appropriate” for the workplace yet, I wouldn’t able to get anything that obnoxiously shows, like a face tattoo. As of now, I’m leaning more towards a large chest or back piece, or something on the leg. And Hot Rod’s in Martin’s Ferry will probably be the place I go. But again, I’m still not satisfied with any of my ideas. And I’m still broke. But one day I will be a badass mofo like this guy \m/

It is with great sadness and despair that we must say goodbye to one of the best venues the area has to offer. Dubbed “The Lakeview House” in Barnesville, OH, it was host to some awesome shows with some big name bands, such as Death Before Dishonor, Backtrack, and Harm’s Way. All thanks to a couple of local guys, Austin Sparkman and Benjamin Hall.

Although the name makes it sound majestic, it was literally just a house basement. But as I’ve come to realize, basements might be the best type of venue for hardcore shows. People from all over would gather and pack into this place like nothing I’ve seen before. And when the music started, shit went crazy. You couldn’t NOT get hit or pushed over or jumped on. But it was awesome, and anybody who went to those shows would agree. Below is a video taken of Harm’s Way playing “Scrambled” at Lakeview. Hopefully a place like this comes along again. Nothing says hardcore like basement shows. \m/
