I'm excited to announce that I've been hired as a Talent Buyer at Lefty's Live Music. As many of you know I have a long history of bring bands to that room that dates back to 1996. As Axiom Promotion I worked both as a independent promoter and talent buyer when it was Safari Nite Club and then Hairy Mary's. It has been a joy to see Erik and Anne bring live music back to the venue at 2307 University Ave here in Des Moines and I'm greatly looking forward to working with both of them and their staff.

In this the Tenth installment of my piercing blog series 'Each Piercing Beaten to Death' I will be covering Rook or Roak Piercing in depth. The Rook is not that common but if done correctly it can really accent the shape and beauty of the ear without being over powering. Located on upper end of the antihelix which is the inner ridge that runs in parallel with the helix of the ear.
Maybe we are just born with that chip on our shoulder or is it something that grows with the passing time. Rocks and gravel that is easily flown over and well off the beaten path of the hippest rats on the sinking ship that make up the left and right arm pits of America. Yes, we were monsters, oddities, freaks that came from the most surprising places. Some of them planted the flag and throw down the gantlet, while others begged, borrowed and sold to enter a forced march to the coast were they shaped their adopted home in ways the locals were unable. These were the Midwest Monsters.
In part one, I covered the difference between Infections and allergic reactions and some of the more basic considerations that need to be taken when choosing the right metal for your piercing. In this installment I plan to go into a little more information about the metal alloys themselves and what makes them the best choice. This all can be rather confusing on purpose.
