So I dunno how much further you can run with this. The whole Sleazy O'Hara thing has become beyond pathetic at this point, with his complete backpedal on what he said and did, and now, he's conveniently claiming "amnesia" as to the night's events, which, to normal people like you and I means, is that he was black out, shit faced drunk, and not able to remember shit because of it. The onslaught of independent witnesses coming forward and reminding that jagoff of what he said and did was quick, fast, and brutal - good job people! Anyways, I had a whole bunch of stuff that I was going to post on the website, but since Mr. O'Hara has spent the better 48 hours now royally kissing Roxie's ass, I guess we can all go back to just watching him make an ass of himself from a distance while feeling sorry for him. Remember Steve - it's not what you did then, but what you're doing now, that people judge you by. Anyways, to commemorate this prestigious event, and to constantly remind you of what a dickhead you are Sleazy, I made this special slideshow of all the stupid stuff people were sending in to me about you, stuff that just highlights your "stupiedity" and will serve as a constant reminder of all that. Since I know that this isn't the end of it, I will be constantly updating it with all the examples that people send in to me all the time. Keep those screen grabs coming - they'll all be added to the slideshow, I promise! :-)
Yeah, slideshow... heh heh I've had the ability to do them on here for a while now, just never thought of doing it, but while sitting @ Scarlett on Sat. night, listening to waaaaaayyy too much Nitzer Ebb, I watched as Jesse "Jotoboy" Nabers was using the slideshow option to show these girls who were all there for Monica's B-Day party, all these crazy cool shots he's taken of various chicks that they all knew, and I thought to myself, I couldn't do that from my website that smoothly with my setup right now, so I woke up the next day and just re-did everything with the slideshow format. I think it looks better, and you can click here to check it all out for yourself. I also added a few more new collections, like the few photos I took of Visual Discrimination that night The Civilians played with them @ The Doll Hut, and you can click here to check them out. There's also some cool video footage taken by somebody of Visual Discrimination playing that night, and you can click here to check that out and to see the Singer rocking out and sporting a Civilians shirt. Apparently every band that played that night was filmed, except for us, of course! LOL Oh well. Maybe the footage will come out eventually... hopefully. I also added some pictures I took of a band called Bitten Beans, a band that S.F.T. played with one weekend out in Riverside a while back, and you can click here to check those pix out too if ya want. No reason why I chose to to do those pix in particular, except that my D & D dice told me to. ;-) 2/3's of the 4th of July pictures are up, and the RanDUMB pix are caught up to May, and you have to look those up yourself if you're interested in seeing them. Those are more for the people who were there, people I hang out with, and not just for anyone, but they're there - you gotta make the effort to see them. ;-)
Ya know, despite the "stupiedity" that went on Fri., I had a really good time. All the bands I saw were incredible, although I left while All Eyes West were playing, because I was dying of thirst and couldn't get a drink from the bar for some reason. Whatever. Seemed like everybody in the place was friends with someone in that band, which was odd. Illicitor definitely lived up to the hype, that's for sure! They were pretty damn impressive, and had everybody around me all a buzz with what they were throwing down. Cool band. Nice story about playing with the Loud Pipes in the Huntridge lobby 17 years ago from the guitar player. ;-) Mercy Music were incredible, as always, but I wish that their drummer would put forth an effort and actually hit those drums harder than he does. Boooooo. And Fredward, wow! Fredward just fucking killed it, putting on a dazzling display of musicianship and pure, unadulterated emotions upon the Triple B's stage. Part Fugazi, part Built To Spill, they were mesmerizing and had the attention of everyone in the place from note one onwards. It was cool to finally see them play, as opposed to all the times I've only heard them play @ MDV when I'm rehearsing there. They were great and easily stole the show with their fantastic performance. Majorly hyped on Fredward right now, which is better than being hyped on bands that cover NOFX and Weezer albums... LOL Everything's updated. I'm gonna go back to editing pictures before the Civilians practice starts...
