Mammal’s Best of 2015 – Part 8/10


Logo

 

Parrots dance to music they like. Few types of birds do. Parrots, however, move to music in ways they never move to anything else. They ignore slow beats, so there are few if any funeral doom parrots. If you want a dancing parrot, play speed metal. That gets them moshing, bobbing their heads up and down while they shuffle from side to side like goofed-out metalheads.

MetalCatToday I had a migraine for the first time in years. Some people think migraines are headaches.

Anything that constricts blood vessels is good when you have a migraine, especially plenty of coffee and nicotine, heh heh.

After I’d slept off the worst of the migraine I started doing my hit parade post for today. My wife asked why I was listening to loud metal music while I still had a headache. I gave her the obvious answer: Metal has curative powers. I know it makes me feel better.
