I went to see Municipal Waste on January 29th of this year. It was an impromptu event held at someone's house on the 600 block of west Marshall St and I was fortunate enough to experience "The Waste" raw in the someone's moldy basement.

Within the first two songs, I noticed a lot of lyrical references to alcoholism, "thrashing", partying and life in Richmond. There were also some mention of mutants which is depicted on a lot of the Municipal Waste memorabilia that I saw amongst the fans/crowd that night. The Waste seemed to have a lot of influences from bands like, Suicidal Tendencies, DRI, and Corrosion of Conformity. The Waste was very well received, to no surprise, because they are a locally formed band that has soared in popularity over the last thirteen years and has become an international success, especially among Europeans into the metal sub-culture. And although they have a healthy, world-wide fan base, they have no pretentious demeanors and are intertwined with the social and music scene in their hometown. In fact, most people there at the show were acquaintances or friends of the band. They are…

Daniel’s presenting problems.
How on earth can the Headmaster think this poor boy had a medical condition when he saw him scrounging for food in a waste bin? If poor Daniel did have a medical condition surely the school would have been informed of it or am I missing something here? Heads should roll from all of the departments that played their part in the death of Daniel. I, like many others are sick…

Everything we do as human beings has some type of structure to it. So that being said structure and organization is an essential element in the arts. Music is very structured in the way you sing certain notes or the way that band is positioned. When you go to a concert or even when you just watched the high school band play, without the structure of music the band members would not be playing all together and on key. No matter how a certain person lives there life there is always some kind of structure…
