Wrockstock Wrecollections – Part Four

[Thank you for visiting The Wrock Snob and reading this article! I’d love for you to jump right into the reviewy goodness, but first there is some unfortunate business to take care of. It is not in my nature to tell you specifically what or what not to buy and who to support – I tell you what I thought about an album, and if my tastes seem to align with yours, you might want to heed my suggestions. However, I must take this time to personally exhort that you do not monetarily support the bands The Remus Lupins or Ministry of Magic. The full reasons are unsettling and possibly triggering, so please proceed with caution, but if you want the full details click here. Simply put, it has been revealed that certain member/s of both bands did destructive, upsetting, and highly problematic things. While I can see the value of reviewing art no matter what the artist did on a grand society-level scale, I cannot morally allow myself to condone the financial support of these monsters, nonetheless exhorting people to do so. Now it is entirely possible this copypasta’d retroactive warning was placed on a negative review, making this sidebar somewhat moot, but I still feel it necessary to make these matters clear. Again, for full details and rumination click here, otherwise, please enjoy the article.]

Part Four: MINISTRY OF MAGIC (again) – BUM BUM BUM!!!!

Third verse, same as the first.  Or, that is, third part, same as the first.  That doesn’t rhyme.  Ah, well.  The point is, this is a more in-depth look at the Friday night mainstage sets at Wrockstock, with a little bit more heavy-hitting analysis than three numbers I pulled out of my rectal cavity.  Do bear in mind that it’s been over a week, the whole weekend is a bit of a hodgepodge of random, disconnected images and sounds, and I have an absolutely atrocious memory to begin with.

Okay, so the last article I did on Wrockstock, about the first night, is retroactively titled “Wrockstock Wrecollections – Part 1”, but I’m not going to actually change it.  That’s right, I’m going all One More Day on your asses!  Anywho, here’s what I thought about Saturday!

1.  Watching two 40-somethings grind to Swish and Motherfucking Flick.

2.  The Parselmouths’ Pillow Fight.

3.  The Remus Lupins’ nonstop parade of songs that kicked you in the face, culminating in a rendition of “Draco and Harry”.  Even better, when they came back to play “Looking For Trouble”, thus confirming my theory that they are legally obligated to close with that song.  Seriously, has anyone ever seen a TRL show that didn’t close with L4T?  I’d love to know.

4.  The Parselmouths beaning people with Magic cards.

5.  Toby playing the Mario theme on bass.

Also, as a bonus, a very quick-n-dirty ranking of the mainstage bands:

1. Swish and Flick – 9.6/10

2. The Remus Lupins – 8.2/10

3. The Parselmouths 6.6/10

Want to know who I am?  I’m the one with the toothbrush and the smile.

Actually, did I pack my toothbrush?

The 11th Worst Thing About Wrockstock

As Wrockstock approaches, new and more interesting reasons to hate the only wizard-rock centered convention (that happens to give their left-over profits to charity) appear.

11. No firearms are allowed.  When you have 250 people who are predominantly between the ages of teenager and young adult cooped up in a relatively small area for an entire weekend, it’s inevitable that drama will ensue.  And what fun is drama if there won’t be pistols at dawn?

Real article will be up tomorrow (Thursday) – it’s written, but requires a lot of extra prep.  Hopefully an article on Friday as well?

WROCKSNOB VS WROCKSTOCK – THE FINAL BATTLE!!!!!!1!

Take THAT, Whompy! I GOT MORE EXCLAMATION MARKS THAN YOU DO! NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH NAH!

Anywho, I wrote a pretty large post over on my tumblr, because I felt it wasn’t of large enough scope to warrant a post here, but I’m posting about the post here anyway, because I am an attention-grabbing whore.  Also, to make it easier for people who don’t have tumblrs to comment.

Wizard Rock Conventions – Pros and Cons

*GASP* An update that is not at the very end of the day and is actually the next day for East Coasters?  What is happening to the world?!?!  Though, to be honest, this is a list update instead of an Extended Thoughts, but fuck you, it’s my blog, at least it’s two on-time updates in a row, and sometimes you need some humour for your Wednesday (especially if it’s a Wednesday when a Twilight movie comes out).  So, today I’m doing things a little differently – this list is in response to this week’s Question Tuesday over at the ‘Pedia – the question being “What’s your favorite thing about cons?”  Of course, me being the negative-purely-for-the-sake-of-being-negative-because-I-really-don’t-like-wizard-rock person that I am, I had to also include a con for every pro I listed.  So, without further ado, my list of the pros and cons of attending a Wizard Rock/Harry Potter convention!
