Admittedly, this one is kinda odd.
Even for me.
As a mullet-swinging denim-jacket-wearing kid who grew up in the 80's, one of my favorite metal bands was Queensryche.
Queensryche wrote a rock opera titled, "Operation Mindcrime" which is - to this day - one of the greatest concept albums ever recorded.
What's it about?
For those of you following me on Twitter, you may have wondered what I meant when I said this:
With a lot of free time, a hamster, some of my kids' toys and one of the greatest rock opera stories ever written...
I present to you the story of "Operation Mindcrime" in somewhat disturbing photos.
Ladies and gentlemen:
I have no idea what's wrong with me.
Let's get to the story!
(curtain draws closed)
And that, my friends, is "Operation Mindcrime" rendered in beautiful HamsterVision (TM).
I would like to thank my hamster, Ramsey, for putting up with borderline animal abuse and the Wikipedia page on "Operation Mindcrime" in which I blatantly plagiarized half this shit.
Oh..and here's a Queensryche video from the album called, "Eyes of a Stranger."
Hm. Hamster rock opera VIDEO.
Maybe that will be my next project.
