Would You Like To Do A Guest Post Here?

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I’m in full book writing mode, which decreases my blog writing time a bit. As per your vote a few weeks ago, I’m looking to replace my Tuesday Top Ten lists with Guest Bloggers. I’ve had two great ones, Sick Christine and John Howell.  If you have a book to promote, or just want to promote yourself and your blog just say so in the comments.

Have you ever woke up, got out of bed and dragged a comb across your head,  then checked your blog stats? Yes, I’m sure we all do it. At 6 a.m. this morning I got up and checked for comments and what yesterdays stats were. (I love following my blog views throughout the day). Normally when I wake up there’s a very moderate number of overnight views. Today I woke up to what is usually a good, full days worth of viewing stats. Looking at what was getting so much attention, it turned out to be my Music Monday post this week. It’s a video of a Japanese girl trio who sings heavy metal songs, Babymetal, singing with Judas Priest lead singer Rob Halford. I titled it as The Strangest Thing I’ve Ever Seen on a Music Stage. Apparently #Babymetal is very popular because all my views came from Japan and Twitter. Yes, that’s right, #ThePhilFactor is now trending on Japanese Twitter.  If you haven’t seen the video, here it is. Rob Halford doesn’t even come on stage until the 7:40 mark.

For my new readers I’d like to say:

こんにちはBabymetalファン! Phil Factorへようこそ

Music Monday! The Strangest Thing I’ve Ever Seen on a Music Stage

I saw this occur live, in person last year at the Alternative Press Music Awards and I still can’t get it out of my head. It was the weirdest musical performance I’ve ever seen. Rob Halford of Judas Priest performed with #Babymetal , a trio of young Japanese women singing with heavy metal backing music.  The real performance starts about one minute into the performance. Former heavy metal icon Rob Halford joins the trio at the 7:40 mark.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil
