Oh, Praise Allah that the damn Viva thing is over. If I have to see another Punk Rocker turned Fatsy Cline or Betty Fudges with a shitty chest tattoo in a floral print dress with a flower in their hair thinking they're sexy looking I'm gonna puke! LOL All I saw were sheep - sheep being fleeced of their hard earned $$$ at every given opportunity, and loving every minute of it. Just. Fucking. Pathetic. The Anti-Viva thing going on at the Stratosphere was better. Just saying...
Friday night was the Grand Re-Opening party for Cowtown Guitars. I wish I could say more about it but I was fucking out if it the whole time there. Thanks to that special someone who hooked me up with those magical brownies, and to Her for all that free Jameson's. She knows what I like, that's for sure. :-) I remember the party was packed, a lot of stuff was being sold, the music was bumping (I heard Black Randy And The Metrosquad being played! <3) and I was chatting with a bunch of people who came down to hang out and eat some cake - cake with black frosting that turned your mouth and lips black when you ate it! LOL It was brilliant! After the cake was sliced up and served to the masses it turned into a Goth party, with everyone walking around looking like they were wearing black lipstick. Cue Bella Lugosi's Dead please. :-) Pictures are coming soon. I stood thisclose to the Publishing Queen of Rock 'N' Roll Sally Steele, from Vegas Rocks! magazine, who kept cutting me off and stepping into my shot while I was trying to take pictures of the ribbon cutting and the cake cutting. I called her a cunt but I don't think she heard me... heh heh
Sat. there was a sick ass backyard party with Battle Born, The Fact Remains and the Happy Campers playing, but I stayed Home to watch the Sharks clinch the 7th seed in the West by beating the L.A. Queens 3-2 in overtime. What a shot by Boyle to win it. The Game was beautiful, and the win gave us the St. Louis Blues in the opening round of the playoffs. Bring it!! ha ha ha ha First game is on Thursday. I might go celebrate the victory by seeing Deadhand play @ the Double Down afterwords. :-)
Easter Sunday yesterday was spent with the Family at Casa de Amoroso. The PBR's and Guinness were cold, the prime rib bloody, the potatoes scallopy, and the chocolate plentiful. <3 Chris, and old friend from way, Way, WAY back in the days was in town from India, where he apparently lives now, working for some big gaming corporation here in town. He was in town for business and stopped by for a bit of a chat and a reminiscence or two. Sitting around with everyone, just relaxing, watching the kids running around with the dog being crazy, wallowing in the after glow of an amazing meal, I dunno, it was just a perfect ending to a pretty sweet weekend. I loved it. Pigasus has some upcoming gigs, so I got that practice to deal with this week, and I think Aluminum Falcon is getting closer to finishing up the recording we swore was only going to take 3 days to finish, but I'm not sure. I was going to go to GWAR / Municipal Waste tonight, but I think we're heading to the studio to work on some final mixes, so I might have to miss the gig. Phooey! Thank Gawd Squeeze is on Friday and Madness is on Saturday. I might need them both for a relief this week.
