20 Buck Spin

Apparently hookers in Lohja go for as low as $20…

Let us take a minute to say that it does indeed pain us that more and more Reverend Bizarre stuff finds its way to bargain bins around the world. Such a real shame, that TRUE ART by ARTISTS who “like to keep TOTAL CONTROL!” gets depreciated. So, so sad. So very, very sad. *sigh* O Tempora O Mores.

no comment post (vol.1)

…because spring is finally with us and sometimes we’re too bored to laugh at the Finnish idiots. Other times they don’t need our help for that, either.

Let him who hath understanding reckon, etc, etc.

A Grim Anniversary

Reverend Bizarre celebrated the 15th anniversary of the release of their debut album some days ago, on March 28th… They received plenty of responses from well-wishers and fans who, however, were not fans at the time.

Meanwhile, today marks nine (9!) years since that inaugural post on Reverend Bizarre’s forum…

by some weeks

And, even though the “some weeks” have turned into, like, more than 400 weeks, the members of Reverend Bizarre are working hard to ensure justice for their ripped-off fans…

The dough did not come out of their own pockets, you see…

We raise our flute glasses to make a toast, and we sign off this post with the opening track of both the said record, and their debut, for no other reason…

Happy anniversary, boys! Rest assured, your legacy is set in stone!

The Gates of Fail / Pirate of teh Youtoobz !

Just when you thought that thick couldn’t possibly get any thicker, Lord Vicar post a link on their facebook page that no one can access!

le peur

While it is commendable on their part that they decided to allow fans to listen to a song without having to listen to the entire album (as clueless CD buyers have had to discover for themselves), we’re not exactly sure of the thought process behind it, or if there was one at all…

We mean, you couldn’t possibly expect poor Kimi to know which regions he has licensed it to? It’s not like he’s the composer who created this piece of (f)art out of the depths of his (tiny) soul, or anything…

Oh. Wait.

And while the well-intended Vicar found himself drowning in the murky waters of YouTube, one of their more pea-brained dedicated fans declared himself the Errol Flynn of the high digital seas…

under jolly roger

Yep, you read that right. He runs a “Pirate Doom Metal channel”. Let us pause for a bit, as our bellies are hurting.

Wishing to be of assistance, we humbly suggest the two get together to discuss YouTube etiquette before one of them finds himself walking the plank. Yo ho ho.

In the Rectory of the Bizarre Unicorn

Jari Pohjonen, formerly also known as Earl of Void, i.e. the drummer in most of Reverend Bizarre’s recorded output (but not a founding member), celebrated his 40th earlier this month, which must be big news, as Peter Vicar interrupted the steady stream of “check out how great they say my new Lard Vicar album is” posts on Reverend Bizarre’s facebook page to let us know about it.

We have a bit more respect for Jari than we do for the other two members of Reverend Bizarre’s last active line-up (which is not saying much really, as the respect we have for those two is nil), so we’ll simply repost the published photos from the event and let you enjoy them, perchance also to draw your own conclusions…

1 2 3

Kimi Kärki took some valuable time out from trying to explain to reluctant buyers of his new platter that “there is absolutely nothing that can be done” about the disc’s eccentricities (noted in our previous post), to perform some songs and air his feet in some delectably classy sandals…

We’re not sure what exactly is happening in this photo, but we assume the technician (the less portly man, on the right) is applying autotune to Kimi’s vocals in an attempt to keep the guests from leaving early…

Possible set inclusions: “By this Tiara I rule”, “The March of the War Unicorns”, “How to burn a CD with no track index”, “Beware of the man with two sandals”.

Happy belated birthday, Jari! 🙂 we mean it…
