Q: Who is this dude?
Thank you, kind reader, for visiting Spinal Tapdance. I hope you enjoy your stay, or are at least able to make a quick egress. Spinal Tapdance is the sole product of myself, one Danhammer Obstkrieg; or, more realistically but infinitely less heavy metal – Dan.
I am employed, in a fashion, as a graduate student, which, when coupled with my decision to write this here bliggity-blog, amounts to two (rather large) Bad Decisions. Nevertheless, Spinal Tapdance is where I attempt to convince you of the elemental virtues of heavy metal; or, more accurately, it is the place where I go when I’m stomping around to heavy metal and need somewhere to cuss up a storm. I currently live in Chicago with my completely wonderful (and very patient) wife, where we laugh, cry, drink beer, eat vegetables, and generally Live The Dream.
Spinal Tapdance, explained here:
“a Spinal Tapdance is what happens to the body when it is consumed with the all-purifying fuck-thunder of HEAVY METAL. Think not of dancing ’round a midget Stonehenge, but rather of the real life Stonehenge – y’know, all those fucking giant ROCKS in the English countryside what with them Druids used to get funky – DANCING ON YOU. Your body twists and thrashes uncontrollably, and your hair stands on lightning-kissed end; this is the Spinal Tapdance.”
This is not what I look like, but this is how you may look at me:
