Kelsey "Chapstick" Zimmerman joins the story. Kelsey tells us how she went from a West Virginia drummer/rock fan to a New York City metal industry artists' spouse. She is part of the metal twitter family and is actually kinda hilarious. Kelsey works for Blast Beat Network and gives some insight on what metal advertising is all about. She is an accomplished drummer having won awards in her past; she now plays in the band Manutara. Kelsey's first spin was Zeppelin which CLEARLY leads a metal fan to Incubus...I know just listen. She reveals how she meets her husband (artist Aaron Zimmerman) but she still loves this one dude named Jasper even more. She also teaches my old ass about "mean mugging"...which I had to look up. Ugh. I suck. Another fun chapter from awesome industry folk who are worth the listen.
Seth W of the Skull Toasting W's joins me on the intro to tell us about a new podcast that I want everyone to subscribe to because it's hilarious. The new METAL MINUTE is exactly up the alley of all of this growing online community and #metalbandcampgiftclub supporters. It's made by Seth and Petkau, the guy helping support the #metalbandcampgiftclub birthday lists. Check. It. Out. Support.
