Metal Technology: Virtual Lighters

You may have noticed that The Metal Show did not grace the radio airwaves Tuesday from 8-9 p.m. I was doing edits at my internship at The Daily Iowan in Iowa City, IA, instead of bringing you the pulse-pounding metal tunes!

Believe me I would rather be broadcasting over the airwaves than editing stories,but people keep telling me it will help me to secure a job in the future or something.

Anyways, The Metal Show will be back next Tuesday from 8-9 p.m. only on KRUI 89.7FM.

But in the meantime, I am going to barrage you with a bunch of updates to this here blog.

Enjoy starting with...

Kiss Virtual Lighters

This is no means extremely recent news, but you can get a variety of virtual lighters on your iPhone (which The Metal Show does not use or endorse) via the app store. Bands like The WHO, Poison and Lil' Wayne all have lighters of their own that you can buy for $.99 so you don't have to worry about burning your thumbs during that next epic ballad at your favorite concert.

Features of the KISS Virtual Concert Lighter include:

* Free upgrades for life — new features will constantly be created for the Virtual Concert Lighters
* Fully customizable with a choice of 24 full-color official KISS lighter cases.
* Unique scrolling text marquee
* Realistic flame sways and moves as you move your hand
* Dynamic sound effects and musical riffs

All of us true metal heads know the good bands don't ever play slowly, so there isn't really time to whip out lighters.

Good ol' music marketing. Recently Gene Simmons even gave fans an opportunity to pee on his face... no joke. Apparently fans are even stealing these urinal cakes.
