Internet + Cats + [some quirk of humanity] = $$$, apparently. You can’t swing a figurative dead cat without figuratively hitting another cat picture or meme. You’ve got your cute cats, box cats, ceiling cats, Grumpy Cat™s, twitter feeds of, or dedicated to, cats, a billion cat videos and… Metal Cats?

If you had to guess what kind of pet the average heavy metal musician would own, chances are a big, tough dog would come to mind. But a new book, “Metal Cats,” features something quite opposite – men of the hardcore metal music world with their cute cats.

Yes, Metal Cats. Tattooed metal musicians posing with cats. This is a book;

Metal Cats combines two amazing subjects: the extreme personalities of the hardcore metal music scene and their adorable kitties.
Metal isn’t all dark and disturbing, violent and misanthropic. Metal Cats is proof that while the music may be brutal, the people in the scene are softies for their pets just like you and me…

Here’s Leto with a cat:

How can you get more awesome than Metal Cats? Like this, maybe?

A portion of the proceeds from this book and a series of benefit shows held along the West Coast will go towards one no-kill shelter in each of the four main cities visited.

Good deal. My two three cats approve. And, while photos of metal-heads with cats seems like a small niche market, I think there are more of us out there than you think. There are certainly a shitload of cats.

inaugural quilt

the other day i tweeted:

in response to something Ayn Rand Paul Ryan said about someone’s Obama poster fading, or something.

I lied, it isn’t a tapestry, its a quilt, but it is huge- about the size of a king-size blanket:

the quilt has not faded, neither have the words.

–the address

keep in mind, as these words were being spoken, the “loyal opposition” was scheming to undermine the President from the very start.
