I'm bored of the game. I really am. It always ends the same, and it's like my own personal version of Groundhog's Day. Lots of talk, and zero to none Action. Lame. Don't people have something better to do? Seriously?
Just a couple of points of clarification, not that it matters, but still...
That apple sack, Dennis, drummer from that joke band Rectal 7-G, was all over my nuts on Facebook, sending me repeated Friends Requests for days on end, and I just kept denying them, because I don't know the dude, nor did I care to. I was asking my friends "Who is this guy and why does he keep sending me Friends Requests?" After a few weeks he finally got the hint, and I'm glad he did, because once he got arrested on domestic violence charges, I knew he wasn't the kind of pussy I'd like to associate with, and just left it at that. That's him, right? The guy that beat up his girlfriend and then ran from the cops, or am I confusing him with another cowardly piece of shit drummer? And he's got the nerve to throw rocks at me? Yeah right? Free piece of advice buddy - I'm not your ex-girlfriend. I will fight back.
And that "chick" Sabrina, ha ha ha, oh man, at Skater Bob's birthday party @ The Dive a while back, she was all talking to me like she was my friend, because of her and I's mutual previous problems with Chris Piss, but I knew she was a 2 faced hypocrite, so I didn't really pay it no mind then, and pay it even less mind now. Her opinion is meaningless. How's that production / management company coming sweetheart? Uh huh. Didn't you move away from Vegas to "make it"? Yeah, welcome back. You and Homeless Dyke, you always come back, dontcha? ;-)
And the Rectal 7-G fan pointing out that the band is listed on the Thrasher Magazine website isn't something to brag about. When the bands you've been in have been on that magazines Skate compilations, had flexi's given away with that magazines issues, or have even been interviewed by that illustrious magazine, well then maybe you can act like your band has done something worth crowing about. Maybe.
Josh Snot from F.C. can act like he doesn't know why I don't like his band, but all he has to do is ask the tweeked out poseur wannabe gang members that his band hangs around with to find out why that is. Or he could just ask his band members - they know. Or just ask me, but that just makes too much sense, I know...
And that drunken, pill popping troll "drummer", you know, the one with only one known beat, and that's 'suck', the one that's sooooo cowardly her shit talking can't even be seen in that posting, well, the wall she hit a few years ago has obviously affected her mentally. Get a hobby, you talentless hack - drum lessons perhaps? Or maybe AA? Yeah, next time your drunken ass is yelling at me from across the room, I'll remember to spit in your direction. Fag.
I hope Estrada Fest, or Est Fest, as the "cool" people are already calling it, really happens. Somebody give this place a venue and make it happen!! I can't wait to see my face on shirts being worn by people I don't like. ha ha ha ha Probably have to be held at Sam Boyd Stadium though, right, because of the masses of people who will be in attendance - easily in the thousands, right? ha ha ha The line up of Local bands that will be chomping at the bit to play this prestigious event will be the creme de la creme of our musical talent here in town, just based on all that scary musical output that's already out there... ha ha ha ha
The time they think I waste on them by doing stuff like this is miniscule in nature, usually less than single digit minutes of my day just slapping something together to illustrate a collective groups asinine stupiedity and feeble words lacking merit and without action, something I do while sipping on my morning coffee, having that first smoke of the day, figuring out what to do with my time. It's been common knowledge for years that if I don't like your band, I take your bands name off the flyers on my website, because that's just how I roll, and you 2 vaginas in Rectal 7-G, 1 male, 1 female, will just have to deal with that. There's more pix and stuff I could post but like I said, this shit bores me. I'm over it. Here's the post that started it all, and my retort to that. Done. Nothing left to do now but deal with the aftershocks that come from what I posted up on here. Bring it. I'm always ready. Apparently it's what I do. Over and over and over again...
Maybe it's just a Sunday thing. Punk Rock gigs with big name bands headlining just don't go over as well as expected. I mean, you were there, right? Where was everyone else at? The 10:30 start time didn't help, but you know how THAT goes. I heard that S.F.T. killed it. Good for them. Glad that new drummer is working out. See? I told you guys it would! ;-) And as for that other Local band on the bill, you know, the one who keeps announcing that they're breaking up and then they don't (pathetic, and it's been done before), well, I think the crowd's reaction during your set pretty much says it all. You should go off with that other Local "Punk" band here in town and just fade away into mediocre banality, remembered only as a punch line to a joke nobody thought was funny in the first place. Bye Felicia. Bye!
It's sad that everybody was soooooo fucking amazed that the Foo Fighters were at LIB playing a bunch of cool covers this weekend - WOW!! How "Epic" that must of been!! ha ha ha Sometimes the people I know and associate with disappoint me a lot... ;-)
Sat. was apparently "Dress Up Like The Dudes From Ghostbusters" day. If you weren't involved or informed, or somewhere that someone was dressed up like that, then you missed out. You snooze, you lose! Love the irony of Thee Shitty Bastards filling in for the Vermin when they dropped off the bill @ the Double Clown for Melo's Birthday Party/Jenn-O-Cide's Going Away Party on Sat. Hope Ruckus wasn't working that night, because that would of been... awkward?!?! LOL Good luck on your 3 year adventure Jenn! Aloha! And BTW... Shortest. Ban. EVER!! ;-)
Fri. was all about D.R.I. @ the Dive. I didn't go because my hair isn't long enough. Life's Torment apparently stole that show, which is good, since it seemed that Larry from that band was the only one promoting the shit out of the gig everywhere and in every way possible. When his band gets signed, don't act surprised.
Everything's updated. Seems like I spend my time nowadays more concerned with documenting the past, rather than participating in the present, at least in the Punk Rock world anyways. For instance - I forgot about talking about the Water Landing pix I posted a while back, and you can click here to see them. I would of taken more, but I had to stand there and listen to everybody give me their opinion as to why thought the band sucked, so I missed out. Also from that night are the photos I took of The Psyatics, who's strangely named CD Oderint Dum Metuant has been on constant play around these parts, and you can click here to see the pix I took of them. They're a great band. You should check them out.
In the "Chris Duggan - Nobody Cares" dept., we have a shitload more old pix re-posted up on the website. Again, only matters if you were there. I can't remember what I posted vs. what I announced I posted, so I'm gonna have to go back and recheck everything. Sorry if anything got double posted. Did that make sense? LOL

I also added a post to the Tunes page, and it's from Local band Dirty Sanchez, believe it or not. I cleaned up their demo from 2008 with my Adobe Audition program, and you can click here to check it out and download the music to your computer if you like it. I plan on doing this a lot more with my old band demos, because they're not doing fuck all but sitting on my shelf in my room collecting dust, so I might as well post them up and let others enjoy them as well. Yeah, I'm all about the sharing, and the Love... ha ha ha
*whew* That's a lot of bullshit right there. I'm pretty sure I've forgotten more than a few things from all over the place, but that's all I can recall right now. More to come, of course. :-)
Festival Shmestival... I ain't going near any of that shite. Have fun if you are.
Not going to anything with the word 'Life' in it's title,
nor to anything whose title contains the word 'Beautiful' within it's midst.
Just not gonna do it. Nope.
Not going to D.R.I. either. Not really that big of a fan of their latter day Metal tinged sound - not enough to get off my ass and go down to the gig anyways... heh heh. I didn't go see them when they played the Bunkhouse, or when they played Vamp'd either. Meh.
I'd like to go to that Warren G / Pet Tigers / gig on Sat., but it's at Triple B's, Downtown, during LIB... forget it. I'll pass. I'll probably just end up at that Anchors / Heartsounds gig @ the Artistic Armory. Meh again.
And if that one shithead infused Local band with a cunt for a bass player weren't playing that 7 Seconds gig @ the Dive on Sun., I'd totally be going to that, even if it was just to Interview Kevin Seconds and ask him about his failed attempt to get the fans of his solo career to buy him a van via GoFundMe so that he could Tour and come to their town and perform for them with his acoustic guitar and wool knit cap, the fucking old Beardcore creep... LOL I'll probably be there, unfortunately, so I guess I'll see you there?
I remember when I first met him, sort of... hee hee hee It was in an AOL chat room, believe it or not, and we got around to chatting, as I always do with fresh young white meat. ;-) He knew who I was and he knew about the website, and he asked me to check out his band and tell him what I thought about them. I don't even remember what band he was in at the time, but I gave them a listen, told him his band sucked, and that was about it. I don't know if he thought I was serious about it or not, but he just sort of thanked me for my honest opinion and we just kept on chatting. After that we would run into each other at gigs, he would get into altercations with my Friends, he played in a band I can't stand, and I just sort of stood around and took it all in, watching this guy do what he was doing and marking him off as another Las Vegas person that I know of, but don't actually know, if that makes any sense. Until that one fateful night, when the New York Dolls played at that Sports Center Of Las Vegas place off of Sunset, when his drunken ass came up to me after the gig, and he told me about this great new musical project he was hyped on, and how I was the only drummer in Las Vegas that could pull it off, and he didn't care what people thought about me, he just wanted me to play in his band, and after a shitload of booze, I agreed to be in a band with him. Simple, I know. So we exchanged phone numbers, emails, and he said I would hear from him within a few days, and, of course, I never heard from him after that! LOL I didn't hear back from him for at least 6 months or so, when he was just casual like sending me a text, "So, when can you practice?" ha ha ha ha He gave me an address in Summerlin (or "Scummerlin", as Homeless Dyke likes to put it), and I showed up and met him and his buddy who was the guitar player, and we jammed on like the 4 songs that they knew, it sounded great, and that was it. That was how I was introduced to my future heterosexual life partner Jeremy Schoonover, aka The Bassmaster General, and aka one of the sweetest souls you will ever meet in this or any other lifetime. Today is his birthday, and I just wanted to publicly tell you all that, and to click here to go to his Facebook page and wish him a Happy Birthday and stuff like that. :-) He's currently at the Anaheim Schmucks home opener right now, having fun I hope, and I love the big shnook and just wanted to state it publicly, that's all! ha ha ha Happy Birthday!! I love yoooooouuuuuu!! XOXOXO
