Tuesdays Tips for Teens: Grunt's helpful head-banging video


This is correct technique for head-banging, kiddies. I recommend that you start off with Black Sabbath, as in this video, before you move on to your Venom, Mayhem, or Tiny Tim.

I was bored and shot this video while waiting for my brother to get back to the truck (Clyde). This was on our fly fishing trip back in July. I seem to be wearing the same green jacket in all my photos. People, I do own other articles of clothing, I promise.

Well, I had a real funny post to go along with this theme, but Blogger erased it and I am too tired to try to re-create it. Instead, I will put up a couple of old photos of me and my mysteriously dark brother. My mom swears she didn't let the milkman in the house.

Excellent technique on the head banging. You managed that without hitting your head on the steering wheel.

Your brother looks like he wants to kick my ass.

Issy said...

Grunt, I really think that the clothing thing is becoming an issue for you. Just look at how your wardrobe has followed you through life? For shame Grunt! For sham! ;-)

Issy said...

Actually God just got me on that one with my hideous spelling! Sorry!

Jules said...

You need to have longer hair and then it would have been perfect!

P.S. I love how you don't mind showing your face around here these days!

rock on, grunty!

Karyn said...

How much older than you is your brother?

I believe your mom. I am the only redhead in the entire family, on either side. Red. Curly. Hair. In a sea of mouse-brown anglo saxons and another sea of short, swarthy dark haired italians.

Recessive genes: Reality

Excellent head banging skills! Did you ever used to watch Head banger's Ball on MTV? Yeah, I did and I practiced!

Were you being a bratty lil brother? Big bro looks pissed. lol.

Grrrruuunnntt!
You Rock, Dude!
haha
I don't believe you actually own another jacket..you're going to have to prove it to me in another video
;-)

well, well.

i had a whiplash from just watching that.

Christielli said...

lol at your video

Sadly, the kids don't headbang as much as they used to. :( It's all about the pimps and hos and whatnot.

Why do I always show up for the gay one?

Oh, that's you. Sorry guy.

Nessa~ Thanks, I really worked on my technique and only have had five concussions to show for. Yeah, my brother was behaviorally and mood challenged. His behavior is good now, but he still is a moody guy. I've got tons of pictures of him looking all pissed off. It's really funny.

Issy~ I fret over my misspellings too, but that is just part of being human. I already cant tell that you are hyper- intelligent, so dispense with the apologies. It's all casual around here. Yeah, as a child of the seventies, I have lived a life of crimes against fashion. I need help, my sistaz.

Jules~ I have done the longer hair before. It doesn't suit me.

Sun~ Back at ya :D

Karyn~ My bro is nine years older than me. I have darker complected cousins on my mom's side, so we know where it comes from. There is Native American blood on her side.

O-girl~ Yeah, my brother gets pissed real easy, but when he isn't pissed, he's a great guy. He has had a very tough, frustrating life--that's why we stick together so much. My dad's illnesses kept us from interacting with him, so my brother and I kind of had to figure it out on our own. It has been real hard for both of us. I'm not where I should be, but I am immensely proud of what my brother has accomplished. You know, a boy really needs a man to show him how to be a man. It is the best way. Our experience was unique. We don't blame our dad--he couldn't help it.

Kayla~ Thanks! I will be working on more videos with a variety of jackets just for you. Feel special?

Guggs~ You know exactly who would influence a good little boy like me to do such a thing.

Christielli~ I know, what's up with that? I tell you, kids these days. What are we going to do? I say we pop in a little Queen "Night at the Opera" and re-enact the scene from Wayne's World in the Pacer. Not just Bohemian Rhapsody, though, the whole deal!

Cash~ It's okay, Cash. I have a habit of attracting more than just women. Hell, I just don't know what to do with myself. Damn these boyish good looks!

Got to have the mane to do the headbanging properly. You do it justice. Blogger sucked down another post? Ugh. Happy Turkey Day.

I'm the only one with fair skin and blue eyes in my family. When I was little, my paternal uncle would ask me (during parties) where I got my blue eyes and I'd say from him. I'm hoping for the milk man.

I owe you a letter, sorry I'm slow.
