Just a moment please to pause on the passing of someone to whom the word Legend is just not enough to encompass all that the Man was; Genius, Maverick, Innovator, Icon, Al Davis was all that and more. The things he did for Football were beyond Incredible. He changed the Game as we know it. His passion for all things Anti-Authority and fighting back against your oppressors was something that I definitely took to heart as a wee lad. ;-) And plus the team's logo was a Pirate. How the Fuck could you not love that??? My Dad was a Rams fan, My Uncle was a Steelers fan, but I was a Raiders fan. Always have been, always will be. Just for that one aspect of my Life I feel like I owe Al Davis a huge Thank You, because the Raiders have brought me a lot of Happiness, that's for sure. His passing hit me hard, but I choose to celebrate the Life, I do not mourn the Loss. Godspeed Al Davis. You Sir, will definitely be missed.
Good game Sunday. Even with, again, the Refs blatant biased penalty calling against the Raiders, they still held on to win. The Chargers got lucky that Tebow wasn't brought in earlier in the game, and watching the Jets collapse is one of the sweetest things about this Season. :-) I Love Football!! And I Love Hockey too!! It's Hockey Season bitches!! GO SHARKS!! FUCK THE DUCKS!! :-)
You know what else was sweet? That gig on Friday with the Tinglerz, The People's Whiskey, The Civilians and the Seriouslys at the Motor City Cafe. Lots of friendly faces and cool people and the bands were great! Well, except for the Civilians... heh heh heh KIDDING!!! Don't have a heart attack you punters! For some reason those guys seem to be worried about what I think about them, but I'll get into that when I do the Show Review of the gig. ;-) LOL Yeah, Sorry, but I have to. I got too much to say about the night and the bands not to, ya know? The highlight of the night for me was just standing there in amazement while The People's Whiskey just fucking killed it. Those guys are soooooooooo fucking good. They sounded better than I have ever heard them play before and the drummer was just amazing to watch. That Dave Grohl looking motherfucker has got some skills! What a fucking gig. And the cake... oh and the cake... Superb!!! <3 hahaha I had a great time. Happy Birthday again to Christy, the coolest bartender / roller derby girl in the whole damn City! :-) Cheers!
Ya know, I never made it to Blondie or O.M.D. on Saturday, on account of a Hurricane warning I received from someone, so I stayed as far away from Mandalay Bay as humanly possible! LOL My Saturday night was fun though. I'm not a wine drinker though... phooey!
Everything's updated. New photos of Babilos, Tinglerz and Blues Storm added to the site... hahaha Blues Storm... don't ask. The Shakedown is happening this weekend and except for that Zeke / Custom Made Scare gig happening Friday at the LVCS, I could give a shit less. Seems more like a Rockabilly fest to me, which is why I'll be staying as far away as possible from that fucking farce. That Coke Bust gig is happening on Wednesday, with a bunch of bands I know nothing about, so get off your lazy ass and come down to Yayo Taco to see some kick ass in your face Punk Rock. It should be fun! See ya there! :-)
So I'm sitting at a good taco shop for lunch - not those poisonous, over-priced taco shops that Turbo eats at - and I'm reading Vegas Rocks! magazine while eating my taco plate, and I just burst into spontaneous laughter while doing so. This magazine is sooooooooo fucking shitty! I was reading her Editorial about that stoooopid "Awards Show" she just did, with her crying about how 'it's not fixed' and that 'every vote was counted' and 'the best bands won' and all that shit. Really? Do I have to be the one to say it? We all know it, right? That by 'vote', she means 'dollar', because that's what that whole things is about. Money. Paying for shit. You can buy your award, just like you have to buy your way into the category you wish to be nominated in, and just like you have to buy your table at the Awards ceremony, and just like you have to buy ad space just to even be considered for the stupid thing. For her to act and say differently just shows what an air headed idiot she really is. Fucking 80's Sunset Strip trash. I forgot to mention that I saw her when I was @ the Bikini Bar for that Tinglerz / Babilos / Six Shooters To The Sky gig. She was there with her "personal assistant" and just sucked the energy out of the room. Thankfully she left just as quickly as she came, and as soon as she did things went back to normal. It's like when you're talking shit about someone, and then they walk in the room. It's a bit awkward until they leave, then it goes back to normal, ya know? LOL Sally Steele (her real name I'm sure) has a story in the back of her magazine about the night she hung out with Tommy Lee back in the day. Yeah, you and 2,843 other blond haired ho-bags Honey. ;-)
It was while I was sitting there enjoying said taco plate when I got a message from a Friend with the tantalizing opening line of "hahahaha guess who doesn't own the cheyenne saloon!!!! Guess who's getting fired from there this week"... hahaha Needless to say, I wiped the grease and salsa and cheese off of my hands and responded immediately, wanting to know just what the Hell this was all about. And after he gave me all the details about it, I think I shit my pants just a little bit from laughing so hard. That's called Karma motherfucker! LOL Why is it every where I go I gotta hear ANOTHER story about this Mark Hornsby dude, always in the Negative or to Ridicule him, from someone who used to work with him at the many places around town he was fired from. Oh well. Guess he can just add the Cheyenne Saloon to his prestigious list of failures - that is, if he doesn't come through on what he said he was going to do, and we all know he's a man that sticks to his word when it comes to that, right? hahahahaha Fucking idiot. 48 hours - Good Luck! You'll need it! And oh yeah - the guy who actually owns the Cheyenne Saloon wants to make sure everyone knows that Mark Hornsby does NOT own the Cheyenne Saloon, no matter what he tells you, and no matter what it says on the Facebook page... heh heh
Here's another video I just got all the info for. It's from Rule Of Thumb, a really good Punk Rock / Hardcore / whatever trio from right here in Vegas. I recorded this a looong time ago and just forgot to upload it until recently. Sorry guys! This is a cool song called As One, and it's from their upcoming release that they're working on as we speak. It's an onethirtyeight.org Exclusive! hahahaha Now I sound like Steven from Punks In Vegas! LOL But at least there's no acoustic guitars in this video! ;-)
And this is another video I uploaded recently. It's the Tinglerz playing @ Vamp'd like a month ago, doing a song that was called Fever when I was in the band playing it! LOL The Tinglerz are hugely under appreciated here in town and I have no idea why that is, but I love this song regardless. :-)
So yeah, got lots of stuff planned for this weekend, which starts tomorrow at that Misfits gig @ the Hard Rock Cafe. Ghey, but at least Guilty By Association is opening it. Tomorrow night it's all about Christy's Birthday Party @ the Motor City Cafe with The People's Whiskey / Tinglerz / The Seriouslys and the Grand Debut of The Civilians, a new band made up of a bunch of old guys playing music they love. Hopefully. It's gonna be a great night of some kick ass Local music and a Celebration Bitches! for one of the raddest chicks I know. Happy Birthday Christy! XOXO
Saturday - forget about it!! Blondie @ Mandalay bay Pool, and then after that I'm running to the House of Boooooo's to catch O.M.D.! It's gonna be 80's flashback night! hahahaha It is going to be soooooooo much FUN!! Now if only the girls I am interested in weren't wasting their time on junky dooshbag scenester fucks, then I could share this awesomeness with someone! Oh well. Just call me Han Solo! Never take sand to the beach, right? Maybe I'll get lucky. Stranger things have happened. ;-)
Everything is updated. New Stuff added, yada yada yada. The Raiders WILL beat the Texans this Sunday - I'm gonna stick my neck out right now and say that! hahahaha And Thank Gawd Hockey Season is here! GO SHARKS!! FUCK THE DUCKS! hahahaha And so it begins! hahahahhaha Have a great weekend - I know I will. :-)
