"bomb scare outside killfest 2010 at nokia theater in times square.. mayhem inside and out" - John

Times Square

The Nissan Pathfinder that prompted police to close off parts of New York's Times Square contained bomb-making materials, the city's mayor said.

"There were gas cans and bomb making materials in the car," Mayor Michael Bloomberg told reporters early Sunday morning. "Who abandoned the car and why are under investigation."

Bloomberg said authorities found propane cylinders, fireworks and timing devices in the car.

The shutdown began late Saturday when a foot patrol officer saw smoke coming from a box inside the car with Connecticut plates on 45th Street between 7th and 8th avenues. [CNN]

Though some weren't able to get to the show due to Nokia Theatre's Times Square location (Broadway between 44th & 45th), Overkill, Vader and the other bands on the Saturday night metal bill, did play. John says, "yea the concert went uninterrupted just had to talk my way past police line. overkill, vader and god dethroned were on fire." BlueEyedDevil had less luck. He wrote that he "was enjoying a great afternoon in the city and walked to TQ to find it barracaded off. Just got home and what a f'n waste. Would have been a great time." Sucks, but at least nobody was hurt.

There's something called blowback. Read about it.

Things that happen in Iraq and Afghanistan are caused by blowback but a religious extremist acts because of his ideology. But you are right invading other countries is not a solution.

Bloomberg planted that car bomb so he could get away with upping security.

I think the above setlist is overall commentary on how destructive we've become. This mentality isnt much different to me than the would be bomber. think about what you are consuming and how it contorts perceptions.

explain to me the progressive and positive aspects of a song called "Enter The Grave".

"death obsessed world indeed.."

I hope you are being sarcastic. Are you really criticizing a metal band's songs? You probably would have wanted to boycott Edgar Allen Poe books...
