This is bullshit.

Famous one-eyed kitten to go on display.

OK...nothing wrong with that--if Cy had been born in my household, he would've been on display from Minute One. Because that's just what you do with awesome mutants.

So Cy's owner sold his cyclopean earthly remains to "a new museum of oddities in central New York." Cool so far, right?

BUT. "The museum founder, who believes in creationism, said the kitten is meant to launch another debate about how science and religion intersect."

Uhuh. No fucking way, you God-frisking jackass. A mutant kitten is NOT to be used to launch any kind of useless religion-vs.-science debates. I say to museum owner John Adolfi, "What're you gonna do, asshat?--put Cy on display and say he's clear proof of God's judgment on an unbelieving America? A soft, fuzzy white omen of God's displeasure with us because of them dang homersexuals and Democrats and all them heathen women having abortions and reading Harry Potter books? Well, you know what, dude? If that's so, then FUCK YOUR GOD. I REFUSE to worship a God who would mutate and kill A KITTEN TO MAKE A POINT ABOUT MEN FUCKING MEN."

Notice, though, that I'm not criticizing Cy's owners. They sold him to Adolfi because ""[w]e didn't want Cy becoming a joke or part of a personal collection...But John was so heartfelt, you could tell he was genuine and sincere." Hey, he was their mutant kitten, and they can sell his remains to whomever they like.

But why not the Smithsonian? Or the Mutter Museum? Or Pegritz's Awesome Collection of Hideous Deformities and Stuff Found in the Pants-Pockets of Midgets?

[livejournal.com profile] jdecay was awesome. First time I've ever seen my man kick out the jams live. His stuff reminded me of Current 93 meshed with ritualistic, ominous dronescapes and noises evocative of cold wastelands roamed by bands of mystic barbarians.

[livejournal.com profile] siliconedreamer kicked my ass to pieces with his first-ever Paralyzed Circuitry performance. His stuff sounded so amazing through the PA, and considering that I've been present to hear these tracks through their creative process, I must say: Damn, boy...you really turned them into magic for your first ever show! Keep it going now!

Frakture or Fraction or whatever the fuck they were: just some dude with a Nord. Generic.

Agnes Wired for Sound played music. One song sounded like a good NIN nails. Otherwise, I didn't pay attention.

The Birthday Massacre, however, were fucking awesome! One of the most energetic bands I've ever seen. Chibi, their vocalist, has a wonderful stage presence, but it's further backed up by the sheer energy of the rest of the band, too--this isn't one of those "good vocalist, mediocre players" bands, folks. They pumped so much energy into their set it's funny any of them could even stand up when they were done. Seriously, one of the best performances I've ever seen.

All in all, a wonderful show! Best $12 I've spent in a looooooong time.

Shit. I really, really need to get my live act put together now. I need more blood, medical waste (preferably toxic, or at least radioactive), and assorted filth for the show...but the music's 99% done. So look for more Pegritzian insanity coming soon!
