Stop whatever you’re doing right now and buy Metal Cats by Alexandra Crockett. OK, read this first and then buy it. The book features original photos of men who are musicians who play heavy metal (including members of the bands Black Goat, Thrones, Isis, Lightning Swords of Death, Book of Black Earth, Skarp, Harassor, Akimbo, Aldebaran, Atriarch, Oak, Ghoul, Ludicra, Holy Grail, Xasthur, Cattle Decapitation, Murder Construct, Exhumed, Morbid Angel, Municipal Waste, Skeletonwitch, Gypsyhawk, Nausea, Phobia, and Napalm Death) and love cats. Men and Cats was lucky enough to talk to Alexandra about her book.
Thanks to the Cat Ladies, who submitted this photo of Stanley Kubrick and his cat.
My husband was watching “Morning Joe” this morning while I was getting dressed, and he ran over to me to tell me the most important item of the morning from the show. Namely, that Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough has a cat, The Colonel, who visited the set. The Colonel (great name) is a grey kitty, and is very cute. Now I know I can add Joe Scarborough to my list of famous men who love cats!
I happened to stumble across this photo of Gram Parsons recently and noticed there’s a cat in the background. I have a little obsession with Gram and refer to him as my “dead rockstar pretend boyfriend” so, if you’re not familiar with his music, do yourself a big favor and check it out.
