I don't even bother with writing anymore. At least not on here anyways. I haven't been feeling it and besides, what's the point? Everyone misconstrues what I say, everyone misquotes what I write, and everyone denies reading this dribble, which has always been the funniest part of the play to me. I'm content to just sit back and watch while Jeremy takes over my position of calling everyone out on their shit, and I think he's quickly becoming one of the most hated guys here in Vegas - maybe even more so than Chris "Who Cares?" Duggan!! LOL Oh, if it wasn't for the 2 or 4 most dreaded words in the English language - tooth extraction / root canal, I'd be having the most awesome Summer ever. I pretty much avoid going to shitty shows with shitty bands on the bill, because I got better things to do, like watch preseason Raiders football and try to put my musical collection back together in proper organized order. Stupid iTunes update messed everything up. Don't ask. I mean, I know I've been doing stuff... I just sort of add it on here and then forget about it. Some people find it, some people don't. Whatever. lemme see if I can recollect any of it for ya... heh

The rain delay is over. I'm gonna go back to watching the game. GO RAIDERS!! The team is looking pretty good this year. I'm hyped!! <3 I leave you with this video of Teenage Bottlerocket playing a couple of their songs and a couple of covers live at the Beauty Bar last month. It was a great night.
The Moral of the Story is... when you hang Downtown with Hipsters, you come out of there smelling like a cowardly pussy.
Yeah, as if you needed any more reasons why the Downtown music scene is the sad, pathetic pussified piece of shit that it is, and that Hipsters are nothing more than little boys with beards, I present to you the following link.
Free Jesse Amoroso
Now, if you remember how I wrote it up (click here to read that post), I mentioned that the best thing they ever did was to NOT cooperate with the Law on this. No need to. You got your ass kicked, man up, take it like a man, deal with it, move on. Whatever. We've all had our asses kicked. Who cares? What you DON'T do is be a fucking cowardly little pussy and file charges a month later - especially when it was your stupid faggoty drunk ass that was causing all the commotion and Drama in the first place. You ran your mouth off on stage and some guy - NOT Jesse Amoroso - from the audience came up on stage and whipped your ass like the little bitch boy you are in front of your band mates and the 5 people (including girlfriends) who were there to see you perform. End of story... or so it seemed. And now you gotta go and do this. Career Suicide. Might as well start planning your move to L.A. now. What? Did a Lawyer fill your head with dreams of easy money or a monetary gift from Life? Did your Downtown friends tell you how it wasn't right that you got your ass kicked for running your mouth off like a drunken loon and that something should be done about it? Or is it the ever mentioned 'pain and suffering' that lazy pieces of self-entitled shit like you fall back on and cite? Well, whatever the case was there boyo, you definitely picked the wrong scab to pick open. What were you thinking? Karma is a Bitch, as people are prone to say, and I don't see this ending well for you. Call me Crazy, call me Carnac The Magnificent, but the one thing you won't do is call me out on this, because you know I'm right. If you don't believe that, let's talk about it, shall we? I for one can not wait for your next performance in public, as I, and I'm sure a few more people too, would love to discuss this with you in person. And don't worry about anything bad or illegal happening, because I got Lawyers too. ;-)
