Holding onto black metal

BernieRyan Adams has always had a fondness for the darker side of metal, to the point that he’ll occasionally bust out a death-metal version of “16 Days” onstage (full-band as well as solo). So I bet he’d totally dig this exceptionally well-executed reimagining of Presidential campaign logos as black-metal icons by the great designer Christophe Szpajdel, via Fast Company.

Ryan hasn’t expressed a candidate preference that I know of, but I’d be surprised if he weren’t supporting Bernie Sanders for President. So that one is on the right here, and you can click on through to see the rest of the field — including Jeb! Bush, and Donald Trump memorably signifed as the rear end of an elephant.

ADDENDUM (7/7/2015): Also can’t beat Death Metal Cats.

Waiting for the end of the world

DRAoccultResponseSome people have entirely too much time on their hands. For example, there’s the obviously quite-addled gentleman who put together this video you can watch below, in which he purports to reveal the “Occult symbolism hidden in Ryan Adams WTC music video shot 4 days before 9/11.” Whoever ColCasperUK is, he claims to have discovered numerous Satanic Easter eggs scattered throughout Ryan’s various album covers (especially the recurrent images of roses and the color blue), but most of all in Ryan’s 2001 video for “New York, New York.” I’ll save you 14-plus minutes of rambling incoherence by noting his conclusion:

“All this man is, is nothing but occult.”

Thanks for clearing that up, dude. As wack-job conspiracy theories go, it’s nothing special — and despite lots of vague innuendo about allegedly devilish intentions, at least the guy doesn’t try to claim that Ryan was actually responsible for the Sept. 11 terror attacks. But the funny part is that, given his well-documented love for black metal, Ryan’s response to accusations of necromancy would probably be something along the lines of, Hell, yes!

ADDENDUM: Or the tweet shown above. On behalf of those of us who are Blocked By Ryan Adams on Twitter, thanks Nicole Kriegbaum.
