for all who do not know me, I'm a Christian woman who happens to love metal, hence the name. Black metal of pretty much any kind is by far my favorite, though I also have a huge thing for stoner/sludge, along with a bit of folk and a bit of death when I'm in the mood for it. I am a non-practicing dental hygienist, as I have discovered that I'd rather do something else with my life. I am an artist, primarily drawing and painting. I also love history, science, and the learning of all things. I love to read, especially classic literature and fantasy (LOTR and WoT, thus far), along with any non-fiction I can get my hands on. Outside of the above, you'll also run into a lot of sci-fi, as I am a huge Star Trek fan (TNG!) and a Star Wars fan too.
Basically anything I like will go on this blog
Isn’t it time to acknowledge the ugly side? I’ve grown quite weary of the spunky heroines, brave rape victims, soul-searching fashionistas that stock so many books. I particularly mourn the lack of female villains — good, potent female villains. Not ill-tempered women who scheme about landing good men and better shoes (as if we had nothing more interesting to war over), not chilly WASP mothers (emotionally distant isn’t necessarily evil), not soapy vixens (merely bitchy doesn’t qualify either). I’m talking violent, wicked women. Scary women. Don’t tell me you don’t know some. The point is, women have spent so many years girl-powering ourselves — to the point of almost parodic encouragement — we’ve left no room to acknowledge our dark side. Dark sides are important. They should be nurtured like nasty black orchids.
