Sooooo... the Mapes gig... Epic or what? LOL And what about Black Fag, huh? Yeaaaaahhhhhh... hahahahaha
Having no car is a bit of a drag, but that just means that I can get more stuff done, a little bit around the house being domestic but the majority of my time is spent in band rehearsal as of late, and it's killing me. I don't mention it that much but the Loud Pipes have a gig with Manic Hispanic this Fri. @ Diablo's Cantina, and to say that there isn't a deep feeling, kindred spirit between the two bands is unfathomable. We as a band would see Manic Hispanic religiously, probably before YOU found out about them, and there wasn't a Loud Pipes Tour or road trip taken that didn't have some of their degradingly brilliant music as the soundtrack to all the madness. But we never played a gig with them, which is a bit odd. Well, that's all changed now, because like I said, this Friday, that's all getting taken care of. The Loud Pipes will have the Luck to be opening up for Manic Hispanic. This should be fun. Hope to see a bunch of you out there, and not just the people hitting me up to get on the Guest List! LOL If you don't make this one, you're an idiot, but you can always catch us at our next gig, which is forthcoming. I don't know if the Loud Pipes are back for good, or if this is just some temporary thing for shits and giggles, but it doesn't matter. I'm just enjoying the ride and showing up when I'm supposed and playing the drums, just like I always did way back then. :-)
I swear to Allah that if San Jose does not beat the gawd damn L.A. Queens that I am going to cut my fingers off so that I never type a good word about them again! LOL I don't care really if we stay our usual consistent selves and choke in the playoffs, but just not to L.A. - anyone but L.A. I can barely take the shit talking as it is! LOL Playoff Hockey. It really is one of the best times of the year, and you know the best part of it all? That means there's only 4 months until Football season starts! YES!!!
It's been a Drama filled Monday, but like I told my Bestie, I'm fucking Teflon, nothing is sticking to me today. I'm gonna head off to watch the Buffalo / Philadelphia game. The Prince of Drummers is a Sabres fan, so I kind of keep track on what's happening in that series so we can have something else to talk about besides what sexy beasts we are. :-) Lots of stuff going on this week - Gigs Galore! I'm avoiding Viva like the plague because, well let's face it, all that shit is GHEY and the people that go to that shit are Clowns, both in Look and Attitude. Luckily, there's lots of good gigs to keep me entertained and away from the farce that's happening at the Orleans. I fucking hate Viva. Hate it.
