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
