Oh what a weekend! My liver hurts - literally! ha ha ha It was nice waking up and making coffee for someone in the morning again. Haven't done it in a long time. It felt good. :-) And oh, silly Facebook drama, you're not getting anywhere near me! I really don't care what you say or do, and you don't have to de-friend me before you talk shit about me. That's just chickenshit. If you say it, mean it, and have the balls to stand behind it. Losers. Ha ha ha ha I was having waaaayyyy too much fun this weekend to let anything bother me. Jane's Addiction on Fri., which was fucking HORRIBLE! Man that band just needs to give it up. That place sucks as a venue too. The sound was good, nice layout to see bands at, but it's sterile and promotes douchebaggery. At least it did on Fri. anyways. Phooey. And I didn't make it out to any of the PRIDE celebrations either, which sucked, because it sure did look like fun. Probably too much fun for a bitter, old homophobic poseur like myself though. ;-)
Sat. I played a gig @ the Bikini Bar that was pretty fucking fun. Every band that played was a wee bit drunk and definitely a little bit off their game, but sometimes that just makes things more interesting, like it did on Sat. The Dirty Panties probably played the best set of all the bands, which I guess is expected because they're a 'signed' band... LOL Plus I only say that because I can't say that our set kicked the most ass, even though it did. ;-) Yeah, The People's Whiskey played a pretty rollicking set, taking a while to get locked into their groove and flubbing up on of my favorite songs by them (Pills) but making up for it with the new songs they played, which sounded amazing-incredible. Lose that gawd awful La Bamba intro to that one new song though... heh heh And Surrounded By Thieves powered through their set without lead guitar slinger Andy because he was off becoming a first time Daddy to a beautiful baby boy! Awwwwwww!! Congratulations Sir! I hope that your first child, be a masculine child. ;-) hahaha Again, it was a great night that, for me, didn't end until the damn sun was up and irritating me from high in the sky. Nice.
Last nights gig @ the Bunkhouse was interesting, to say the least. The Hard Pipe Hitters didn't play, which was a bit of a bummer because I was looking forward to seeing those dudes play, and the Quitters played without their bass player because apparently he's a sissy girly man who would rather do stuff with his girlfriend than play a gig with his friends. Da Gheyz. Phooey. It was cool that they played without him though. That band is so good it's nauseating, even without a bass player. The Vermin were spot on though, reaching a bit back into the vaults and playing some stuff that even they admitted they hadn't played in a while, like that song Pick A Sin. Good call on that one. I missed a lot of their set because I was out side partaking in illegal substances with a lot of my Friends who were in attendance. This Jack Grisham's Lost Soul thing brought out a lot of Local Scenesters, Hipsters and Weirdos, including some chick with a tattooed glow in the dark vagina that she took great pleasure in showing anyone and everyone that wanted to see it. At one point she was using her iPhone to videotape the band playing Code Blue and her vagina thrusting in time to the music. Weird. And yeah, Jack Grisham's Lost Soul played quite a few tasty T.S.O.L. tidbits, and even had Mike Roche come up and play World War III with them, which just made the crowd go nuts. The turnout wasn't great, which didn't make Pulsar happy unfortunately, but the intimate gathering was cool. Jack told lots of funny stories about stuff like jacking off into socks in the tour van and the Do's and Do Not's of Forced Analingus. Go Deep. Go Hard. Go Fast. His words not mine... LOL If it wasn't for the T.S.O.L. stuff they played, I would of been bored to tears. I would of rather of heard a bit more obscure stuff like Fuck You Tough Guy And Sodomy as opposed to Dance With Me or Code Blue, which Jack related to Sammy Davis Jr. singing Candyman. Yeah, Code Blue is Jack Grisham's Candyman. Yeah, again, just a fucking fun night out with a bunch of cool peeps, including April, who drove all the way in from AZ. just to see the gig! :-)
OK, it's Monday, and Grosse Pointe Blank is about to begin, followed by Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. Sounds like a good day to just sit on the couch and relax before tonight's Raiders game. It's gonna be a slaughter. Party at Casa de Amoroso for those in the know. See ya there!
