It's almost like we live in an Etch-A-Sketch world.

I watched the Drama unfolding on my big ass computer screen - the Drama involving a certain "venue" here in town and what is or isn't being down with it and with the money raised to "save it". I know of the money making scam involved with the place firsthand, because it's effected my Friends directly, and because people tell me shit about what's going on there all the fucking time, whether I want to hear about it or not. I watch the Drama unfurl before me in the Interwebz world, with accusations being thrown around, direct questions being ignored, Kool-Aid drinkers spinning the facts and lots and lots of what us Indians call 'double talk'
White men speak with forked tongues.
I'm laughing at the absurdity of it all. I'm amazed how some people can be so blind to the facts. Nobody takes accountability for anything nowadays. Everything is never their fault, and they always have an excuse for everything. Whatever. So as the bullshit fest continues, the thought of capturing it all for posterity, as I am prone to do, suddenly popped into the back of my head. I love screen grabs! LOL Interesting to me and me only, because no one else would dare to admit to liking it publicly - enjoying Drama, that is. It's like buying those Star and National Enquirer magazines at the grocery store - you love reading them, but don't want to admit it. I scrolled back up to the top of the Facebook convo, got ready to begin and then just said what for? What's the point? It seems like in today's day and age, just like with the O.J. case, the Zimmerman case, whatever, even if presented with insurmountable proof of Guilt, there will ALWAYS be a Kool-Aid drinker to say otherwise. Always. And in the case of this particular convo, there were plenty of Kool-Aid drinking detractors to spur things along to keep that sliver of doubt option available. Whatever. I had a change of mind the next day and went back to grab some of the convo that was said, and the whole thing was deleted from the Facebook world... like it never happened, like the questions were answered, like all the fears were assuaged. Le sigh. That "venue" will be back, just keep that money rolling in and everything will be just as awesome and magical as it once was before. And hey - let's keep that GoFundMe page active, because the apartment rent and burrito seshs doesn't pay for themselves ya know! ;-)
Everything's updated. Pictures of Fuzz SoLow playing @ the Dive were just posted (click here) as well as a Music Review on a band called Twat, who hail from the Bay area and are really good. Click here to read that. They have the unfortunate bad luck to be playing at the Double Clown on April 24th with some of the shittiest Local bands our Scene has to offer, but you should make the effort to check Twat out when they play. I would if it was going on anywhere else.
