She's Not Your Average Bass Player: My Interview With White Zombie's Sean Yseult



I finally managed to publish my blog about my interview with the former
bassist of White Zombie, Sean Yseult. Let's just say, she's not your
average bass player.



In case you have NOT read the previous blog, I published a follow up
blog about my live interview with Sean Yseult on Leaf Pile Radio. Also,
I expressed my personal thoughts about Leaf Pile Radio, White Zombie,
Sean Yseult, Rob Zombie, and Rob Zombie's music and film careers.



After publishing these last few blogs, I realized that this is THE
MOST,
that I have EVER blogged about the same topic or band, in all my
years of blogging. I have been a blogger on and off for the last 3-10
years on various platforms.



Even though I have been unable to blog as much over these last 2
months or so, I really hope you have been able to still enjoy my blogs
on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.

Follow Up To My Previous Blogs About Sean Yseult

This has been a hectic and extremely overwhelming week! There were
monkey wrenches thrown into some of my plans and my plate was being
overrun. On the positive side, I did manage to interview the former
bassist of White Zombie, Sean Yseult.



Today, I give a follow up about my live interview with Sean Yseult
on Leaf Pile Radio. Also, I express my personal thoughts about Leaf Pile
Radio, White Zombie, Sean Yseult, Rob Zombie, and Rob Zombie's music
and film careers. In addition, I explain what format I will be
publishing my interview with Sean Yseult.



More than anything, I would REALLY appreciate it if you supported
the content on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. That means liking
and sharing my blogs on social media, e-mailing my blogs, and spreading
the word in general.



I am a 1-woman show and spend countless HOURS working on these
blogs, while everyone else is sleeping. I turn no profit off any of the
content I publish and share.

Blogger Is My Alternate


How's it going my gumdrops? You may recall that I published 2 blogs last weekend, on Blogger. Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday are blogs I normally publish on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. Webs.com experiences glitches every so often. 

Since I'm already on Blogger, it's only fitting to publish Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday blogs on here, whenever It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns goes down. I will just transfer those same blogs over to my website, after the glitches are over. That's basically what I did both today and yesterday.

Normally, I will share Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday blogs to Blogger from It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. Whenever I share those blogs on here, the links will redirect you to my website and vice versa. Isn't that fantastic?!

What would be even more fantastic is if Gen Xers and Millennials both liked, subscribed, shared, +1'ed on Google+, and left your feedback in the comments sections. I am online, during the evenings.

There is NO fee to join It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. The incentive to joining is that you have a chance to read my "Horror" page. That's something outsiders do NOT have access to. Just think about it. 

If you are having trouble with the navigation, here is a blog explaining how to navigate around It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.

Anyway, thank you my gumdrops! I look forward to seeing you all very soon!

Cartoon Sunday: Foamy The Squirrel Rants About Bullies


How's it going my gumdrops? Yesterday, you may recall that I mentioned last week being rough both on and offline. In regards to cyber space, an Adult Swim poster "peacefully" died in his sleep, during the middle of last week. Some of his friends and other posters have been grieving over his death, whereas some choose to be malicious.

In fact, my number 1 slanderer on Adult Swim went as far as to name drop a racist troll, that he claims the dead poster was supposedly friends with. I don't know if that is really true, considering that it's coming from a slanderous poster, who continues to slander me on Adult Swim. When that dead poster was still alive last year, my slanderer called him "an asshole." Therefore, it's a matter of considering the source, which happens to be a highly glorified slanderer and megalomaniac with a God Complex.

This is along with the fact, that same glorified slanderer continues to down vote troll me and other Adult Swim posters. In case you have NOT already, I suggest reading last year's blog about why you should not join Adult Swim.

Why You Should NOT Join Adult Swim's Message Board

Since we're on the topic of Adult Swim, it has been confirmed that a new Seinen SciFi Action Anime called Dimension W will be replacing Akame ga Kill! on the network.

Toonami's Dimension W Promo (2016)


It will premiere next Saturday at 11:30 pm Central, which is right before Parasyte -The Maxim-. Right now, I cannot comment on Dimension W because I have not watched an episode of the series. However, the promo makes it appear to be interesting.

I just hope this new show is NOT complete hype. Adult Swim is skilled at pandering to a certain group of fans, which are Action Anime fans. I have said it before and will say it again, there is more to Japanese animation than Action Anime.

Hopefully, it's something worth watching because I really do NOT like every Action Anime Adult Swim airs. They have always been a hit or miss, whenever it came to airing shows in general. As of right now, I only know that Dimension W is being simulcasted both in Japan and here in the United States on Adult Swim. The series premiered in Japan on January 10, 2016 and it will premiere on Adult Swim on February 27th.

Since today's blog is mostly about Adult Swim, let's return to a previous topic. Earlier, I mentioned that I was being slandered on Adult Swim's forum by the same poster, who continuously down vote trolls me and shat in a dead poster's memorial thread.

That exact same poster is someone, who pretended to be my friend, when I originally joined Adult Swim nearly 2 years ago.

Last year, that Adult Swim poster was also a member of my website. After I removed him TWICE for lying, backstabbing, selling me out to his crazy so-called "friend" at the time, and getting me banned on Adult Swim, he attacked me through my contact submissions form and made libelous claims about me being another poster he's had problems with in the past.

My frenemy knows it's a bald face lie yet he continues to slander me around Adult Swim.

The worst part is that Adult Swim's moderators condone his trolling and slandering; There's mostly social politics on the network's message board, which is why so many have left. That's not including suicidal posters.

As much as I hate to say it, posters who know the truth and choose NOT to confront him about slandering me are just as guilty as he is. Some do want me to stay on Adult Swim but they don't act like it. If they did, they would show it.

Continuously slandering and anonymously down voting an adult poster on Adult Swim's forum is a perfect example of adult cyber bullying/trolling. Speaking of bullies, I have another Foamy The Squirrel short. In this short, Foamy The Squirrel rants about school bullies and gives unorthodox strategies about how to handle bullying.

How's it going my gumdrops? Just when I was in the middle of blogging on my website, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns, there was another glitch. As if this week was NOT terrible already.

Speaking of terrible, literally 1 day after Valentine's Day, Denise Katrina Matthews also known as Prince's former protege, "Vanity" died from Renal Failure at age 57. This is not only surprising, but also tragic. It appears that more entertainers have been dying again, including this past week. Vanity just celebrated her 57th birthday on January 4th. Over 1 month later, she's dead. RIP VANITY!!!

I don't know about anyone else, but it seems like the year of 2016 will be worse than the last several years. I really dread what this year has in store for us all. 2016 got off to a brutal start with famous people, most specifically musicians dropping like flies.

As I was saying, Prince's former protege, Vanity died from Renal Failure on February 15, 2016. It's a good thing Prince hasn't died yet. Chances are great that my uncle would go postal over him dying because Prince has always been more of an idol to him than Jimi Hendrix. The man loves them both, although he favors Prince over Hendrix.

Personally speaking, I was never a huge Prince or Vanity fan growing up, during the 1980's and '90s. However, my youngest aunt and I both had our own parakeets named Prince and Vanity. She had a blue parakeet named Prince and I had a purple parakeet named Vanity.

More than 30 years later, I still feel that having a purple parakeet named Vanity is strange because Prince was about purple. He has an album called Purple Rain, for an example.

When my youngest aunt and I had our 2 parakeets, I was a pre-schooler. She claims that my parakeet, Vanity literally pecked her parakeet, Prince to death. Supposedly, Vanity pecked out all Prince's feathers and gave him a disease. Talk about a vicious bird.

Other than having 2 parakeets named after Prince and Vanity, I was NOT a huge fan of their songs. Growing up during the '80s, I listened to more Pop Music and Glam Metal. I listened to Rap Music as well, even though my mother did NOT allow me to listen Rap. Regardless, I always listened to whatever I wanted to growing up.

Earlier this week, I learned some interesting tidbits about Vanity. For example, I had no idea that Vanity and Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue were engaged in 1986. On YouTube, I stumbled upon an old interview with Arsenio Hall interviewing Vanity.

       Arsenio Hall Interviews Vanity (1986)


Watching the way that man salivated over Vanity repulsed me to no end. Growing up, my grandmother always ranted about how much she could NOT stand Arsenio and normally referred to him as a "lowlife." After watching his interview with Vanity as a 33 going on 34-year-old woman, I have to agree with her. Arsenio Hall reminds me of the scumbags from the street.

Meanwhile, I was annoyed watching Vanity act like a bimbo on stage. Not to speak ill of the dead, but she was literally a bimbo on crack or a crack whore. Vanity used so much crack throughout the 1980's, that she and Nikki Sixx broke off their engagement in 1987.  

The Howard Stern Show: "Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx Explains Why He & Vanity Broke  Up" (2007)


By 1994, Vanity overdosed on crack and nearly died from Renal Failure. Because of the large amounts of cocaine she used throughout the decades, she began having kidney problems and had to go through a Peritoneal Dialysis 5 times a day.

After surviving her cocaine overdose in '94, she decided to become a "Born Again Christian" and went into Evangelism. In 1995, there was an '80s special on MTV, which was reflecting on music videos and groups from the 1980's. That's along with sharing updates about 1980's musicians.

Vanity explained in an MTV interview about her drug addiction as well as how she became "saved" and an evangelist. In addition, she began blaming Prince for her cocaine problems. As a 13-year-old girl at the time, I couldn't help rolling my eyes at Vanity's interview.

Unless Prince physically forced Vanity down and made her use cocaine, or slipped it in her drinks, he is not at fault. She chose to become a drug addict. Don't get me wrong. I think it's wonderful that Vanity quit using drugs and changed her life for the better.

All the while, Vanity acting self-righteous and blaming Prince for being a crack whore was and continues to be bullshit. I completely empathize with her wanting to change her life for the better and leaving her scandalous past behind. In spite of the past, Vanity really needed to take ownership for her dumb choices. Hopefully, the woman did before dying.

Before I forget, I learned something else about Vanity, that I found to be interesting. Like a few other singers in the past including the late David Bowie, Vanity did a cover of the old Nat King Cole song, "Nature Boy."

In 1989, Vanity made a cameo appearance on Friday The 13th: The Series as a Pop singer named, Angelica. It was on Season 2: Episode 20 titled, "The Secret Agenda of Mesmer's Bauble." In that same episode, it featured Vanity's cover of Nat King Cole's "Nature Boy."

You may be assuming that I'm half-assing today's blog. I really hope this is NOT the case. This has been quite a rough week and I almost didn't publish ANY Song Saturday blog for today. Rather than doing an entire block of Vanity songs, I thought I would share this extremely rare cover of Vanity singing "Nature Boy" for today's Song Saturday.

Cartoon Sunday: Strike The Blood

Strike the Blood Volume 1.jpg


On another note, Happy Birthday to the owner of Horror-Punks.com, Lord Marquis DeBlood! I hope you put on your best birthday cape and flaunt those pearly fangs.

If you would love to learn more about our very own Lord Marquis DeBlood from Horror-Punks, there are links upon links in a previous birthday blog, that I published last year.

Song Saturday Birthday Special: Marquis DeBlood


Meanwhile, it's Cartoon Sunday. Trying to watch the Shonen Supernatural Action Anime, Strike The Blood was another challenge. If you read yesterday's Song Saturday blog, you may recall that I mentioned it, when I published my review about Kanon Wakeshima's Tsukinami album.

Song Saturday: Kanon Wakeshima's Tsukinami

 

Kanon Wakeshima's "Signal" was the 2nd ending theme song to Strike The Blood. After mentioning Strike The Blood yesterday, it started to pique my interest.

  
Just to let you know, I'm 4 years behind on most of Japan's Anime releases.

When you're busy with working, blogging, managing your own website, social networking both on and offline, forced to work at social events, having to help take care of disabled family members, etc. they take precedence over binge watching the latest Anime.

As I was saying, I had a difficult time trying to watch Strike The Blood last night. Allow me to say, that Crunchyroll.com's media player sucks ass. The website's media player from 10 years ago was much better than the current media player.

Then again, Crunchyroll was NOT originally a legitimate Anime streaming website. Japan and the Anime Industry rode the founder's ass about it at an Anime Panel, 10 years ago.

Eventually, this led to Crunchyroll agreeing with TV Tokyo and other licensing companies to legally stream Anime with optional paying viewers. Since the time of that agreement in 2009, Crunchyroll's media player has been terrible. The company's media player is slightly better than CW's media player, which is by far THE WORST media player to ever watch a streaming show. Viewers complain about Hulu.com but it's NOWHERE near the CW's or Crunchyroll's media players.

I tried finding a higher quality version of Strike The Blood's pilot episode on YouTube but had no such luck. Trying to watch Strike The Blood in English subtitles via YouTube was blurry.

Today you have the option of either watching episode 1 via YouTube, or withstanding Crunchyroll's obnoxious commercial buffering, while possibly being interrupted by the commercials playing in the background, as you watch Strike The Blood. The fact that Crunchyroll's subtitles are larger and more visible than on YouTube is a positive.

Considering the fact that we're on the topic of Strike The Blood, having an understanding about the series would help. Just to warn Anime fans in advance, this Shonen Supernatural Action Anime is also a Dramedy Anime with some fan service and harem themes. That is along with vampires and demons.

Judging by episode 1, the fan service is pretty mild. It's not extreme like that God-awful Anime, Ikki Tousen. Don't even get me started on Ikki Tousen.

After I was finally able to watch Strike The Blood's episode 1 via Crunchyroll this morning, Kojou Akatsuki is making up tests over the summer. He lives in the Demon District of Itogami Island and is suspected of being the Fourth Progenitor Vampire.

On Kojou's way home from studying, he senses Yukina Himeragi. Yukina is a Sword Shaman for the Lion King Organization and attends Sakaki Academy Middle School. The Lion King Organization sent her to spy on Kojou and she must kill him, if he is proven to be dangerous.

So far, I like Strike The Blood. It looks like it has some substance to it. Granted, the series has some fan service but like I already said, it's nothing to the extent of Ikki Tousen.

Below you have the options of choosing between Crunchyroll's and YouTube's media players. Anyway, here is Strike The Blood for today's Cartoon Sunday.

It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 2nd Birthday: [Q&A Edition]

How's it going my gumdrops? Last week, you may recall that I added 2 of my older Q&A blogs to Blogger.

It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns: Q&A #2


This is my 3rd Q&A blog, that I published several months ago to celebrate It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 2nd anniversary. I still haven't decided if I will be doing another Q&A, during the early part of this year.

Even though it's not quite "Throwback Thursday," I have decided to share this 3rd Q&A blog for those who missed it. This Q&A blog was originally published on September 23, 2015.

It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 2nd Birthday: [Q&A Edition]

How's it going my gumdrops? Today, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns turns 2! To celebrate its birthday, I am posting another Q&A blog. I meant to do more Q&A's earlier this year. Because there has been so much chaos on and offline, I haven't really made any time for more Q&A's until now. Anyway, let's get right to some of your questions!

Zombiefied35: When did you decide to create a blog? What do you do, when you're not blogging?

Answer: Shortly after graduating from Carthage College, while battling my own health scare in '06, I created a Yahoo 360 blog.

Sometimes my English Literature professor would use my blogs as another source of information for his Asian Heritage classes, that he taught. If Yahoo would NOT have discontinued Yahoo 360, I would've probably still been there.

In January 2013, I started blogging again except I was on Xanga 1.0. Within 1/2 year, I had about 50 subscribers and growing, until The Xanga Team screwed over everyone. The Xanga Team dumped their money issues into our laps and expected us to donate money to reach 60 grand. 

Otherwise, Xanga would've been shut down. The catch was they would relaunch it as Xanga 2.0 and everyone would be required to pay.

This caused a huge divide among Xangans and most of us went our separate ways.

Before Xanga's shut down and pay to blog relaunch on WordPress, I managed to get 13 of my 50 friends and subscribers to follow me to Blogster. Blogster did seem great. 

That was until I realized that most Blogsterians waste time throwing pissing contests over politics and cliques.  

BTW: Blogster and Adult Swim rival each other with drama except Adult Swim is worse because we have no block features.

Months later, I began learning how to create my own website through Webs by watching YouTube tutorials. This was done, while I was working for my uncle's company. He wanted me to write the content for his website besides the usual requirements.

When I'm not blogging, I'm checking e-mails, notifications on stalkbook, juggling online social interaction, YouTubing, watching TV, watching missed shows on Hulu, etc.

Mimikoko: Which would you prefer to deal with, a zombie apocalypse or an economic collapse, and why?

Answer: Most people don't know that Horror has hidden messages and themes. This especially applies to political themes. I watched a Horror documentary a while ago.

If memory serves me right, zombies represent anarchy and rebellion.

As far as choosing a zombie apocalypse or an economic collapse, I would probably choose the economic collapse.

Having to kill zombies would probably lead to an economic collapse anyway because the world would be left in ruins.

Richard Blazey: Do you own a body pillow of Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach?

Answer: No, but I wouldn't mind owning a body pillow of Grimmjow Jaggerjack.

Metalheart: How do you stay sane using the Internet? In 20 years, do you think the music industry will look anything like it does today?

Answer: Many times over the last several months to years, I have been told that you must have "thick skin" on the Internet. This is somewhat true to an extent.

Most people use the "having thick skin" statement as a justification for why they can be maggot pieces of shit on the ground to whoever they want, whenever they want.

Luckily for me, most websites I'm on have block features except Adult Swim. Sooner or later, I will post a blog about the differences between using social media sites and forums.

The best solution is to NOT give the haters what they want so badly. They want you to lose your cool so that they can play the victim card and paint you as the villain.

Meanwhile, I fear for the entertainment industry, especially when it comes to music. Self-righteous "political activists" have really been "trendy" these last 11 years. It's the main reason why I quit hosting my radio show in 2004.

To make matters worse, I am worried that there will be more dumbed down songs, that are worse than the talking fox. I believe that entertainment will become more dumbed down than it is, right now.

Anonymous Question: Do you regret joining Adult Swim?

Answer: Yes. Even though I managed to surprisingly make some friends, I CANNOT help regretting my decision to join Adult Swim's message board.

I do NOT hate everyone on ASMB. Although, I'm really disgusted with the fact, that someone I really valued, trusted, and considered to be a so-called "friend" was very quick to lie, backstab, set me up, sell me out, and slander me for his own cheap thrills. 

This is besides him guilt tripping me into staying on a cartoon message board only to be used as a means to an end.

Russ' Questions:

1) Do you have any tattoos? Yes or no? Why?

2) What are your thoughts about tattoos on dark skinned people? Yes or no? Why?

Answers: No, I don't have any tattoos. I used to want them, when I was younger. I don't have any because I hate needles, tattooists don't always sterilize their needles, and tattoos have become too "trendy."

By the time I became a college student, nerds and preppie trust fund-brats had them. They were mostly people trying to prove, that they were "cool." Ugh!

I believe that tattoos really aren't as cool anymore because tattooing has been overdone.

Some of my nurses have tattoos, including Tramp Stamps.

3) LA now has a law that condoms must be used, while filming porn. What are your thoughts?

Answer: Considering that HIV and AIDS have existed for the last 3 decades, porn stars should've been using condoms, anyway. This is especially when they're having sex with multiple people.

IsolateX's Questions:

1) What method did you choose to learn Japanese?

Answer: I started learning Japanese in middle school, during 1995 at 12 years old. I took the language, throughout 7th-12th grade. By the time I was 20 years old, I started taking Japanese again and earned my degree in Asian Studies with an emphasis on the Japanese language.

I wanted to be a Japanese Consecutive Translator. If I wasn't battling a health scare before, during, and after graduating from Carthage College, I might have been able to study abroad at Tokyo University like I was supposed to do before graduating.

2) What influences the type of music you choose to listen to?

Answer: It really all depends on my mood at the time. When I was a teenager and in my 20's, I listened to more Metal because I was always angry. I was a lot angrier as a teenager. Metal was always for my own catharsis. Now, if I'm really stressed out, sometimes I relax by listening to Enya.

3) Do you have any artwork that you could display? That is if you've dabbled.

Answer: I do have some of my artwork, but most of it is somewhere in storage. If you ever have the opportunity, you should try experimenting with watercolor painting.

4) What is your ethnicity?

Answer: I am English, Irish, Italian, Australian, American Indian, Asian Indian, Arabian, African, French, Polish, etc. There's so many, I don't know the rest. 

Just to let all my gumdrops know, there were a few more extra questions, that I never answered. Lately, I've been trying to decide if I should answer at least 1 or more of your questions in a blog regularly. These were some great questions.

Before I forget, I posted another blog on Blogger about fall shows, that I normally watch. In case you missed that blog, click on the link below.
