I gotta get something off of my chest first - FUCK YOU DETROIT!!! hahaha
The blood is in the water...
Oh, the silence in Joe Louis Arena after Setoguchi scored that Hat Trick game winning goal gave me a stiffy! hahaha I thought it would go 6, but it just may end on Friday with Game 4, which would suit me fine. The Chicken Wings are just fucking dog shit in my book. Fuck them.
And onto the Pulsar Is Dead thing. Well, what seems like a good idea at 4 in the morning kind of turned out to be not so amusing in the light of the waking day. I read what Hank wrote on Facebook, posting something about Pulsar being dead, knew it was a joke, and left it as such. I think the giveaway that it was a joke was the announcement that Hank Musgrove & The Mother Fucking Maniacs would play Pulsars funeral. LOL A few minutes later Pitt got involved and played along with the joke, commenting on Pulsar's supposed death, updating his status on Facebook with "Pulsar R.I.P.", and so did I. Seemed funny to us, but apparently, it wasn't. People just started blindly commenting on Pulsar dying without verifying a thing, taking what was posted blindly on Facebook as fact, and that was kind of scary to watch. The rumor of Pulsar's death spread like wildfire all over Facebook, with some people getting that it was an obvious drunken joke kind of thing, and others sending their condolences to Pulsar's Mom, who didn't find it the least bit funny. Go figure. And then Hank took a vicious beating, both Publicly and Privately, with people calling him a dumbass and chastising him for perpetrating such a cruel, unfunny joke. Shame on him! LOL Like I said, it seemed like a good idea at the time, but apparently we 3 were the only ones who saw it that way. Anyways, it was weird that people were so quick to believe a silly rumor, and a scary reminder of the power of Facebook where everybody gets their news from nowadays.
Today is Cinco de Mayo, which, just like St. Patrick's Day, is a Holiday were everybody becomes a Nationality they are not and people get super obnoxiously drunk. I plan on being one of those people tonight @ Vamp'd for the D.R.I. show. It should be fun! See ya there.
I dedicate this to all the people out there who live to read all about the shit I go through from time to time because of something that has been said on this website. I was hoping I would never have to compile another one of these pages, but apparently some people have nothing else better to do, myself included. For those of you who missed out on the Hurricane that was going on in the Comments section of my last post, you can click here to read about what Brandon and Amanda from False Cause and good ol' Chris Piss from who knows where, had to say about my comment about me not going to the D.R.I. gig that just happened this past Sat. because of the assholes that I knew were going to be there to see False Cause. I'm always shocked that people get so bent out of shape by what's said on this website, and that people put so much value into what I think and do and say, but again, apparently, some people do, and when I dare to say what I think or feel I am to be chastised immediately about it and given 50 lashes with a wet noodle for doing so... hee hee hee. In the long run, nothing ever changes, nothing is solved, and nothing becomes of it. It's a huge waste of time but a necessary evil when you dare to speak your mind or give an opinion like I do constantly. And because of it, False Cause isn't my Friend anymore. Boo fucking hoo. See how much sleep I lose over that. I will miss Ben's comments on all things Hockey and Punk related though... heh heh. Detroit sucks! ;-) If you wanna see the original post (where the comment flame war is still going on) just click here, otherwise, just click here to go to the page with the bulk of the bullshit messages those 3 were sending me all weekend. It's pretty Epic stuff.
Speaking of Sports, how bad is the officiating so far this football season? LOL Too many instances of just flat out bad calls that are affecting the Game, and when the NFL has to issue an apology to the Seattle Seahawks about the bad calls on 2 Giants touchdowns that shouldn't of been, then maybe it's time to have someone who can watch the watchmen, an overlord with the ability to overturn ridiculously bad calls that happen on the field. This mornings NFL standings would be a whole Hell of a lot different, that's for sure. I've got nothing but Faith in my beloved Oakland Raiders, but man, we need to tighten up our Defense and, as Jesse Jerk was saying on Sunday, 'put the Pollock in'. LOL
So yeah. Big weekend for gigs coming up, what with this Locals Loaded gig happening @ the LVCS downtown on Friday night with 400 Blows, who are this amazingly intense punk rock band in the vein of bands like The Bronx or Jesus Lizard - You do NOT wanna miss this gig:
How sick is this gig? Seriously??
And then this gig on Saturday night with the Adicks, the Vermin and the Lesser You. ::yawn:: I definitely won't be in attendance at this gig, but it's not because of the opening bands. I love the Vermin and I'm dying to see The Lesser You, because my friends tell me good things about them, but I think I'm just over the whole Adicks thing. They remind me of someone that I really miss. Their music is no longer fun to me. Bad memories. Phooey. I'm hoping The Lesser You play a gig I can go to soon so I can check them out. I'm all about good bands here in Vegas, ya know? ;-)
The Quitters are NOT playing this gig, on account of double booking...
And yeah, I guess both of these gigs are in conjunction with the Neon Reverb festival happening this weekend here in town, but I have no idea who else is playing or where. I saw the website and was not impressed with anything that I saw playing band wise. Might as well call it the Hipster Festival, because all the bands playing are pretty much ghey. Except for the Local bands of course! ;-)
The Hardest Working Local Band in Existence, Ministry Of Love, are coming back from a successful U.S. Tour where they encountered their share of drunken assholes, blown tires, frantic fans, house parties and the usual amount of blood, sex and booze that a band usually finds on the Road, and they're playing a homecoming gig @ Yayo Taco with a shitload of bands I've never heard of, except for the Green Lady Killers, of course. ;-) I think this is the place I'm gonna be on Saturday, because I can get some good food, good drinks, and also check out a few bands. Who knows. I may actually enjoy it! ;-)
And with that I will bid you Adieu! I'm off to do something extremely tedious yet fun, the likes of which a very few lucky people like myself can only participate in, and that's watch the sun rise. It's not easy being an opinionated Punk God, but somebody's gotta do it... hahahaha Everything's updated. New stuff added... blah blah blah
If I told you what I've been up to, and what I've had to deal with this past week, you wouldn't believe me. Not a god damned word of it. The Mexicans in Machete are bad ass, faggot ass chickenshit poseur Nazi Punks are not. Instead of telling you about my week, I'll just tell you to go to these gigs:
Don't know anything about Deviated Instinct, but Blatant are most excellent!
TheCore are playing @ the LVCS on Friday with some bands I know nothing about:
I Heart TheCore!!
And. of course, the big D.R.I. gig @ the Cheyenne Saloon on Sat. I don't think I'm going to this one, on account of the crowd of 'friends' a certain Local band brings with them, and the fact that anyone who was over 12 years old and not drunk at Punk Rock Bowling would remember that D.R.I. sucked badly that night. It's OK to admit it. Seriously. Fucking money grubbing old bitch Rock Stars is what D.R.I. is now. Phooey.
Who Am I? Old, Tired Shitty Hippies at this point...
And, of course, in true Las Vegas fasion, there's a bunch of gigs that were just announced within the past few days that are all happening this weekend! Way to get the word out there guys! And you wonder why nobody shows up to your gigs! LOL All those flyers for those gigs can be found on the Gig Calendar page, if you are interested in finding out about them. Today's the start of Football season, which means one thing - Hockey season is right around the corner! hahahaha Lots of stuff to do this weekend - Have Fun!!
Finally. The last of the Drunken Debauchery stuff is up, including the photos of the Clusterfux, A Pretty Mess and Riot This. All the Links can be found to the right of these here words. The 3rd, and last, installment of the Infestshit Tour Pictures are up as well. Community Of Friends is a D.I.Y. Punk Record store that has recently opened, and you should all support it or fuck off. Click here to go to the Myspace page and learn all about it. This record store already has Hank's creepy stamp of approval, so it must be the shiz-nit. The art performance warehouse that Keil from the Vulcans has opened up is called The Louvre, and it's Myspace page can be found here. The High End Mystery Emporium had a great opening night I heard, so go here to their Myspace page and keep abreast of what those guys are up to. Fucking awesome that Vegas is suddenly getting alternatives to the usual stops on the local bar / club circuit. Better to play a record store / art space / warehouse than a smelly, smoky bar. Brian Infestshit is organizing a local benefit for Spike from D.R.I. to help pay some of the guitar players recently acquired medical bills, and is looking for bands to play the show non-gratis. Hit him up here to see if you can play, or to just offer to help out in whatever way you can. Who doesn't own a D.R.I. album, right? D.I. is playing The Cheyenne on Sat. with one of my fave local bands False Cause, so go out to the gig and buy Ben lots of shots of Jack. It will be a better show if you do. Las Vegas' # 1 Party Band 1/2 Ast are playing a kick ass LOCALS ONLY show on the 18th @ Take 1 with the Peccadilloes and False Cause. That show is not to be missed. F.S.P. are getting back together again and are playing on the 19th @ The N.Y. Cafe with Vermin From Venus and Lethal Injection. It's deja vu all over again. Go to these gigs and show support for YOUR scene, both old and new. Jupiter Shifter needs a drummer. The only requirement is to eat a bag of dicks from Rob Ruckus every now and then. Go to their Myspace page here if you can hang with the hardest working bass player in Las Vegas. Speaking of Jupiter Shifter, someone stole Kei's P.A. head and Brew's (ex-Dirty Babies) bass amp. Keep your eyes peeled for anyone selling stuff that matches that description. Payback is a mother fucker.
