There's a real reason why shit doesn't get done on here, and it has to do with a certain someone who keeps me up all night, getting crazy with me, and giving me the greatest hopes and dreams ever, but it all comes with a price, a price which, given my present physical condition, is a bit difficult to pay and leaves me feeling weak and a bit drained. Oh well. And no, I'm not talking about Bob... ha ha ha No, I'm talking about Her, and she knows who she is... and so do a few other people too... hehAnyways, first off, let me tell you about this gig going down tonight @ the Lounge inside the Palms casino featuring The People's Whiskey and The Scoundrels. A kick ass, rocking good time is guaranteed.
I haven't been to this place yet, but if it's the same place that I played a disastrous gig while in Suite 666
(we played with Black Camaro
... UGH!), then it's a good room to watch bands play and they have great waitresses for quick booze service. ;-) Come on out and Support! if you got nothing better to do tonight. I might be there, with my just returned Home hot shot professional Photographer Ashley Chance. <3

to see some of her amazing work. OK, what's been added to the website as of late? Well, that damn cursed Show Review I did like 6 months ago of Unfair Fight's record release party for We Are The Dead, and you can click here to read that shit. I don't know why the layout kept getting messed up, and words I wrote (or think I wrote anyways) kept disappearing from it. Oh well. It's up, it's done, and with the slew of people turning in stuff for the website, I better get cracking and keep up with my stuff! LOL Good ol' Zack, aka Colin Oscopy (his Facebook name) turned in a Show Review for the D.R.I. Thrashgiving gig that went down @ the Bunkhouse a few days ago, and you can go here to read that. How was everybody's Thanksgiving anyways? Mine sucked this year because I spent it flat on my back in a Oxycontin stupor, wracked with pain and unable to even sit up for a few minutes. But at least I got my grub on - Thank You Roxie! XOXOSpeaking of Show Reviews, Dean turned one in for the D.I. gig that we (American Buckshot) were supposed to play but didn't, and you can click here to read that one. Much better than the half finished one he turned in for that craptacular Horror Business gig we played @ the Sand Dollar... jeesh! :-)
Thanks to Blue Tile Lounge
for bringing us both of those reviews. Add them and Like their page on Facebook by clicking here
to be kept abreast on what's going on here in Vegas regarding Punk Rock and Skateboarding. And speaking of craptacular, Bob, aka All Hail Bob
, turned in a completely illiterate, barely comprehensible Show Review
for a The People's Whiskey
gig he went to @ the Double Clown a while ago, and you can click here
to read that, if you can. Don't worry. It's short. Won't take you much time at all to get through it, and if you can tell me what it was about, please drop me a line @ email@example.com
and enlighten me. :-)I think everything else on here that's been added as of late I've already mentioned, but if not, I'll get to it tomorrow. I gotta get out of here, because my leg is killing me. Pain pills take me away...
Gosh! So much going on I've been sorely slacking on website shit. Did you see this yet? The Cool In Vegas website with the video about the Local Las Vegas Music Scene, featuring Roxie, Bob Mandoki, some dude from that Vegas Cocks! magazine, and with music by the Scoundrels, Drainage X and the Peccadilloes playing in the background? Click here if you haven't seen it yet. Overall it's pretty good, but to hear one of the Interviewee's spew on about how the Beauty Bar is a great, intimate place for bands to play is a joke. Obviously he doesn't listen to the bands while they're playing there, because if he did, he would notice they sound like wet dog shit in a paper cup. Oh well. Still a cool video. Check it out.The amazing photos that Jesse "The Super Photographer/Roadie" Nabers took of the Loud Pipes glorious return to the Double Down can be viewed by clicking here. And if you haven't read the little blurb the Weekly said about the night, just click here. I like that the girl reporter for that shitty mag interviewed us for like 20 minutes and only 2 lines of anything we said was put in the paper, and even those were taken out of context, misquoted; not being what we said at all... hee hee hee Oh Journalists, you are a funny, funny lot. :-)
Depending on whom you ask about it, the Dead Kennedys show @ the Hard Rock Cafe was either an epic event of humongous proportions, or a sad public display of a dead horse flogging. :-) And to think, I got chastised for commenting on how sad it was that the Jerry Only Experience drew hundreds of more people than the East Bay Ray Experience did! LOL And yeah, after the gig, East Bay Ray was hanging out at the Double Down, where I'm willing to venture that more people saw him there than at the Hard Rock Cafe - Ohh SNAPS!! hahahaha Just kidding of course. As long as you had fun at the gig, that's all that matters.
How great was that Raiders / Chargers game yesterday, huh? hahahaha I will spare you all the details of how I had to convince a few die hard Raiders fans that we indeed had a chance to beat the Chargers, and after being proven right by the 1st quarters end, the feeling of satisfaction that I'm still walking around with can't be beat. :-) I'm not saying we're playoff bound, but man, with our 4-0 division record, anything is possible, and stranger things have happened - GO RAIDERS!!
Tonight I'm staying home and watching the Sharks / Red Wings game. I'm hoping for revenge for our 5-3 loss to them earlier. I'm gonna be trying to catch up on website stuff, so keep your eyes peeled for new things popping up on here. Hopefully.
