I swear to Allah that if I have to re-create this website from scratch again, using a brand new program that I know nothing about, again, that I'm gonna go postal. You have been warned. Everything's gonna be a bit late, so bear with me, OK?
You gotta take the good with the bad and learn something about your mistakes along the way, otherwise you are doomed to repeat it ad nauseum. With the exhilarating highs come terrifying lows. Doomsday Productions got a very expensive lesson this past weekend, but thanks to the crazy few who made the effort to come out to the show, and special thanks to that girl that gave me that cheap shot in the neck. Hope you enjoyed your flight bitch. Learn to pit or stay the fuck away from me. Anyways, the upcoming Union 13 show, as well as the upcoming Exploited show, will make it all up to you. Promise. Isn't that right Brian? heh heh heh
First band to have their photos posted on the new format website is Give 'Em Hell. Holy fuck were those guys good opening up the gig this past Saturday. Loud, fast, hard and quick, Give 'Em Hell rocked the fuck out of the University Theatre and left the crowd yelling for more. Great to watch and I can't wait to hear some recorded material from these guys. Make that shit happen dudes.
I cannot apologize enough to Sin for missing her 80's nightmare prom party. I am sorry babe. I will not miss the next one.
You ever have one of those dreams where everything makes sense, all is good, and right about the time that you realize that all your problems could be solved if you just paid attention to what was going on, or to the circumstances around you or even to what was being said, then BLAMMO! You forget what the solution was, you forget what was being said, you forget the circumstances you found yourself in. Yeah, me too. Don't you hate it when that happens?
Happy Birthday to my Buddy and Secret Plaything Pitt. He's like a butt brother to me, and I'm sorry that I missed you when you were here compadre. I can't explain the overwhelming feeling of dread that washed over me while getting prepared to attend that Bronx gig. I hate the Double Down but it's cool when me and you go there late at night and drink and talk, as long as it's about ANYTHING but Guns N Roses... heh heh. Happy Birthday Homo. I love you.
Lots of Vegas bands doing stuff. Playing gigs, both locally and out of state, recording lots of new demos, taking pictures of themselves @ their drunken bar shows...I'm hyped on all of it. The problem is, none of the bands I'm in are doing any of that...heh heh. Someone tell me what's going on? Did I miss a Memo or something? I'm loving the Back Stabbath tunes, the Vulcans demo is amazing, The Mapes make me laugh every time one of their songs comes up in my rotation, Dirty Panties music is OK, and even the Swenson Street Hookers stuff is good in small doses. Summer is right around the corner and I have only 2 words to say ~ Desert Shows. Let's make this shit happen! Who's down?
I jumped the gun a bit about The Exploited thing. The show is on. British Invasion Tour 2007, here in Vegas. I was just sick of negotiating with "their people" and let Brian handle it after a bit. I just didn't give a fuck after a while. That's why he's the Brains of Doomsday Productions. He worked his ass off to make the show happen and bring it to Vegas, and all thanks go to him. Well, him and The Objex. Why The Objex, you ask? Well, that's because they were stupid (or desperate) enough to actually PAY to be on the bill. Yup. Pay To Pay is alive and well and living in Las Vegas, and bands like The Objex further perpetrate the fraud by their participation in the scam. Shame on them.
Music Reviews coming up, Calendar page is updated, San Jose is in a slump, and I'm lost in video game land. I like going to shows. Are there any good ones coming up? Besides the ones Infestshit are playing? :-) Just because a show is on my Gig Calendar doesn't mean that I would go to it. It's more of a courtesy to my friends and whatnot. Speaking of friends, see you all @ the D.I. show this Saturday. It's an early matinee show (remember when Matinee shows would happen @ The Huntridge Theatre? Neither do I.), so either stay up all night drinking and go to the show, or wake up early and start drinking before the show. Special Brew for breakfast... mmmmmmmmmmmm. And then there's the after party @ Sin's house. Moonpies and Strawberry Shortcakes for all. Holy Fuck. Somebody save me...
The website is in a constant state of evolution. Someday I will have it on lock-down and everything will remain as it is but for now, don't expect too many things to stay as they are. The Calendar section was a great idea, but it's being abused, so I think I might phase that out.
Big bear hugs and sloppy wet kisses to everyone for all the birthday wishes. I'll spare you the details of what I did. Most of your guesses are probably better than the reality. Not really. ;-)
I don't think that The Exploited will be playing Las Vegas... sorry. See you @ The Bronx tomorrow.
Here's to the future... whatever that may be. Yeah, I updated the website, as you can obviously see. Everything old is gone. It's 2007. Time for a fresh outlook and stuff. Lemme know what you think, check the shit out (the Calendar page is pretty fucking sweet, and the Downloads page has the long lost Cyanide Blues 7" that never came out) and I'll talk to ya later. I'm gonna go pass out for a few days...
