Some Monsters JUST WON'T DIE

Like Dick Cheney's inhuman heart.
Or Paris Hilton's insatiable tapeworm.
Or the Finnish "monster rock" band, Lordi.

Yes, Lordi. As in Mr. Lordi (how's that for a lead singer's name?) We introduced you to the hard rockin', latex wearin', guitar shreddin', mythos mixin' monsters of Finland back in May of '06. Now they're in the news again. This time announcing the horror movie they're in. Slated for a 2008 release, with principle filming wrapping in two weeks, it's sure to be as scary, imaginative and clever as their monstrously sophomoric monster biographies.

Frightening. Occasionally, Lordi dons a silly hat to really put the fear of Monster Island into the audience. It's most effective when he surrounds himself with hellish stage lights and demonic rigging.

Go to YoutTube and search for "lordi" to see some of their music videos. Hot babes in "Who's your daddy?" and a great rip-off of Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" in the "Blood Red Sandman" video, plus you get to see an undead Slash-looking Lordi monster (top hat and all) who is no lomnger on their band member roster. I wonder what his name is?

"Who's your daddy?" is the kind of loud, mindless, shredding song that blood thirsty killbots in Iraq might play as they roll through the streets of Sadr City, kicking in doors in their search for insurgents, innocent bystanders for target practice, or frightened Arab girls for defilement.
"Who's your daddy? Bitch, who's your daddy? I'll put you in your place!"

And why do they put their birth dates on their biography page? Do they expect us to celebrate monster birthdays as if they were select presidents or Jesus?
