1 week ago I got the news via text that the world lost Chester Bennington. 1 week ago today we lost someone that got us through those dark times, someone whose voice guided you to the place you needed to be when you were down and all you wanted to do was belt aloud to songs like “Numb” “In The End” or “Final Masquerade”. It took a week to find the right words to say as I am finally letting it in that he’s gone. It took a week to understand that he could no longer control the demons inside and that the only way out was to leave us. I remember listening to their first album and being amazed on what this band had to offer. I have been listening to them since the start so needless to say that I was a skeptic of Linkin Park as Meteora was their trophy album and I was unsure how I would feel if their next album couldn’t top that. Regardless of how I felt of their albums, I always found that 1 song that hit home. Linkin Park was a band that continued to show us that they were ready to rock your world despite what you thought of them and despite what direction they chose to take. To all those Linkin Park fans out there reading this… Don’t look at this as a goodbye, Don’t let this tragedy get you down. If you are feeling down, continue to belt aloud! Chester Bennington may have left this world, however he left you the world. Lift your heads up and continue to sing aloud and keep his legacy flowing! I know I will.
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well your fans do! RIP Chester Bennington and thank you for getting me through those tough times.
This looks like it could be the best one yet! Enjoy!
Where the month of February means the season of love for some and the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead for others, it’s a different kind of special season for geeks that do toy reviews or write about it for websites. It is called “New York Toy Fair”, a private event held annually, a seller’s opportunity to showcase all the new kinds of toys to buyers in the market of purchasing those items that all the geek girls and boys enjoy. This event allows press and media coverage to a limited extent. And I, your friendly, everyday nerd was fortunate enough to get a press pass this year and see for myself what this elite club was all about.
Alter Bridge rocked the Playstation Theater on February 9th 2017. This was a show that nearly didn’t happen because this just happened to be the day that New York City saw its first snowfall of the year.It was cold and windy, snow blowing all over and it was more like a night to sit inside and watch Netflix, however that didn’t stop NYC Alter Bridge fans from wanting to come out to see their favorite band perform.

A few years ago Steven,Alex F. ,Khalik and myself all worked in the same building in East Midtown Manhattan. During that time frame we got to know a co-worker of theirs (I was building security & the 4 of them worked in the same company). His name is Greg Oliveras. We would poke fun at him for laughs and of course with him being in on the joke at all times. Greg left that company a few months after we all worked together because he had a dream and that was music.
What did you guys think of the trailer??? OMG!!! This trailer was amazing and we here at InnerCityGeeks.com cannot stop watching it!!! Nice Disney plug btw…. You’ll see! Enjoy!
When I first heard that they were releasing new material I have to admit that I was a skeptic just like the rest of their fans. The reasons being… the last 2 albums (Some Kind of Monster from 2003 & Death Magnetic 2008) were okay yet not what we expected at all. In 2012 they released a 4 track EP called “Beyond Magnetic” which was a step up from the initial “Death Magnetic”(In my personal opinion those 4 tracks fit better on Death Magnetic). Over the last few months Metallica surprised us with the title track single “Hardwired… To Self Destruct”. Continue reading
A few months back I posted a link to a band that I thought not only sounded good, but they were also intriguing. Over the last few months I got to really know each band member pretty well for the most part and decided to interview them. This is not only their first Q & A, but mine as well. I present to you… the first sit down interview with this very unique group. Enjoy! Continue reading
