Song of the Day
Have you ever thought to yourself: “Boy, Converge covering Entombed’s ‘Wolverine Blues’ would sound pretty good, but what I’d really like is five different versions of it”? Well, good news! Converge has covered Entombed’s “Wolverine Blues” five different times, with a different notable singer each time. They were: Aaron Turner from Isis, Jacob Bannon from Converge, Kevin Baker from The Hope Conspiracy, Nate from Doomriders, and Tompa from Disfear.
They all sound pretty gnarly, but we gotta go with Kevin from Hope Con. That dude could solve all the world’s problems just by standing there and yelling at them. Pretty sure we could send him to scream at the hole in the ozone layer until it closed up out of fear and we wouldn’t have to recycle anymore. Now if you’ll excuse us, we have to go listen to some Beyonce or something because if we hear that fucking guitar riff intro one more time, we’ll stab ourselves in the ears with some broken glass which we’re not even gonna bother recycling since Kevin’s got that whole thing under control.

I know how she feels. When my dad got us (my whole family) a car it was because our pickup truck was too rusted and loud for me and my brother to take our road tests on so we needed to quickly buy a car that could run without potentially falling apart and 3 years later when he gave me that car I had to pay three hundred dollars to have it repaired. I was doing ok though because I finally had a job that didn’t give me panic attacks that might get me fired and I could use the car to help out my family and oh wait… these situations aren’t the same are they?

“I got a fan letter from a young lady. It was a suicide note.
So I called her, and I said, “Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan. Scotty, from Star Trek.” I said, “I’m doing a convention in Indianapolis. I wanna see you there.”
I saw her — boy, I’m telling you, I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was definitely suicide. Somebody had to help her, somehow. And obviously she wasn’t going to the right people.
I said to her, “I’m doing a convention two weeks from now in St. Louis.” And two weeks from then, in somewhere else, you know? She also came to New York - she was able to afford to got to these places. That went on for two or three years, maybe eighteen times. And all I did was talk positive things to her.
And then all of the sudden — nothing. I didn’t hear anything. I had no idea what had happened to her because I never really saved her address.
Eight years later, I get a letter saying, “I do want to thank you so much for what you did for me, because I just got my Master’s degree in electronic engineering.”
That’s…to me, the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
