Hey everybody! I just wanted to take a sec out of the holiday shopping, laundry, and ducking raindrops to introduce myself and thank the mighty Kurt C. for inviting me to the shindig. Zee Diddy (AKA Jon Z) is pretty much awash with a melange of musical styles from indie favorings to extreme metal, some prog, a dash hiphop (not your general eMpTV garbage tho') and beyond (some of which Kurt might not agree with...but wtf mate? I'm all about diversity). I'll pretty much try to cover as much as I can here. In addition to listening to a ton of stuff, I also write and record a ton of stuff too. You might also find me on xBox Live as MrRockNRoll abusing hordes of unlucky Locusts in Gears of War.
Anyhow...here's a quick list (which I plan to cover in a more indepth manner down the road) of 12 stocking stuffers you might be interested in enriching someone with if you're stuck for a quick gift idea:
Deftones - Saturday Night Wrist
Vaux - Beyond Virtue, Beyond Vice
Muse - Black Holes and Revelations
Chavez - Better Days Will Haunt You
Brand New - the Devil and God are Ragin Inside Me
Incubus - Light Grenades
Elliott - Song in the Air
Nas - Hip Hop is Dead
Ghostface - More Fish
Lamb of God - Sacrament
Army of Anyone
Cursive - Happy Hollow
I'll comment more on all of these later...Happy Holidays!
