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! :-)
