Determine a band's leader by analyzing a publicity photo.

A band's inclusion on this blog reflects neither an endorsement nor a criticism of its music. This post is merely intended as a spotlight on the inner political workings of a collection of individuals who are in the midst of a cooperative, creative endeavor.

The Process:
You, dear reader, please answer the question, "Who's in charge here?"

After sufficient discussion has taken place, a verdict can then be passed based on a majority vote.

Band: Entombed
Genre: Death Metal

Voting ends on: Monday, December 15th, 9:00am CST (GMT-5)

THE VERDICT (Updated!)

Voting has ended. Here is the tally.

No One - 1 vote
Squatty McSquatterson - 7 votes
Fu Manchu on the right - 2 votes
Far Left - 1 vote

He who squats, squats last? A squat in time saves nine? Here's squat in your eye? Congrats to Squatty. You're in charge!

squatter mcSquatterson seems to be the only one smart enough to duck under the mustard haze. He's in charge.

smart enough, or stupid enough to show his face in the murky light? I'm going to go with fu man chu on the right as he is close enough to take over should squatter mcSq fall victim to the evil light.

Jeeeeezuz. I laughed for about 15 minutes. 5 just from the name alone, and then 10 after looking at the picture.

Clearly, these guys want you to think that Satan is in charge, but it's squatter up front with the "artistic vision." His stage name is probably something like Alistair Adema, but his real name is probably Francis or Ira or Todd.

Splotchy said...

Beckeye, I don't know any of these guys' names, but I was thinking the squatter would have at least seven or eight adjacent X's in his name.

Dealer Man said...

I don't thing Mr McSquatterson is the leader since you can clearly see him and he will be the last to be Entombed.

My vote is for the stand-in on the far left. Having the least hair he would suffer the least damage due to extra weight when head banging.

Since my word verification was "gorypo" I'm declaring that the chemical name of the yellow haze.

Splotchy said...

Can "gorypo" be weaponized? Can it be used as a hair gel? Can it be used as a weaponized hair gel?

my word verification this time is "chill" so i'll refrain from defending my earlier post.

I simply can't find a reason to vote for any of the Four Mustardmen of the apocalypso. McSquatterson is in charge. (Second in charge is FuManchu, who spells his name with an umlaut over every vowel...)

Jared X said...

I think these guys inadvertently put together a Coors ad. Note the mountains and the beer-colored miasma settling in over the band members. The slogan could be "If you're going to be entombed, bring along the always smooth, always fresh taste of the Rockies," with a death metal riff blaring in the background.

I have to go with Fu Manchu on the right because it looks like he's interrogating Squatter.

And, Splotchy, in the spirit of the Minnesota recount, I believe a recount is required for last week's entry. I thought Dr. Teeth got at least five votes. Perhaps there were hanging chads on Teeth votes that weren't counted? And, for the record, I'm not partisan in this fight as I voted for Janice, last week's equivalent of Ralph Nader.

Splotchy said...

Jared X, holy crap. Yes, a recount is warranted. I had a brain cramp. I'll update the Dr. Teeth post

Splotchy said...

Okay, the Dr. Teeth post is fixed. You have made Animal angry.

Jared X said...

For the record, I didn't "demand" a recount. I suggested one in the name of democracy. There's a difference, but Animal won't recognize that. Just to be safe, I'd like to ceremonially change my vote from Janice to Animal. I realize this will have no legal effect on the final tally but do not want to be beaten to death by a crazed, drumstick-wielding muppet.

Splotchy said...

Changing your vote won't help you now, Jared.

The only thing that might appease him is leadership of the Entombed.

that's what you get when you use a diebold machine to blog on...

McSquatterson is in charge. The guy second from left is wearing Chuck Taylors, obviously he's the drummer.

Angsty McSquatterson

I vote for the mustard haze because my eyes got watery when i looked at it. That could also be the recent upset in my personal life but we wont go there.

Blame the watery eyes and my vote on the mustard haze.
