I explain things to people in private all the time. Some people see my point but don't acquiesce, and that's fine, and some people I can sway to see my line of thinking, and that's kind of scary! LOL These things I explain in private are actually things that would be better explained if I posted them on the website, sort of like how Mr. Hand kept Spicoli's "I don't know" answer on the chalkboard for all the other History classes to see, but I can't even be bothered to do that, because I really don't care. Doesn't directly affect me. My Life goes on unabated and undisturbed. Just remember, that when you do drink it up, ask for the purple Kool-Aid because that's seriously the best flavored Kool-Aid ever! And oh yeah - the bands got their stuff back! ;-)
In case you didn't notice on the way in, I just posted the Pictures I took of Guilty By Association playing the Beauty Bar a few weeks ago up on the website, and you can click here to check those out. From that same gig I posted the pix I took of New Cold War ripping shit up, and you can click here to check those out. Watching Micah play is always a treat. :-) From a gig the night before at the Dive, I posted the few pictures I took of that Scorpion Vs. Tarantula band on the website as well, and you can click here to check all 3 of those out if you wish.
Looking at Pictures not your thing, huh? You like to read well written, non-opinionated synopsis' on the latest and greatest Punk Rock music to grace the scene nowadays? Well, you won't find anything like that here, unfortunately, but I did just post a Music Review on the latest Posh Boy Records compilation to come out, called The Posh Boy Story (More Or Less), and you can click here to check that out. Please keep that free swag coming in - Thank You! ;-)
I used to give a shit. I swear I did. Whereas nowadays I can barely be inspired to get off my ass to go to 1 gig a day, back in the daze I would go to 2, sometimes 3 different gigs on the same day. What the FUCK was I thinking? Cocaine really is one Hell of a Drug! LOL The particular month of August in the year of 2008 had one of those days I am now making reference to. The day started off early with an all ages gig @ Jillian's featuring J.F.A. (click here for pictures), Battle Born (click here for pictures), Give 'Em Hell (click here for pictures) and a band called 5 Days Dirty (click here for pictures) from straight outta the East Bay. Yeah, that was a fun night. I remember the Meth Kids giving me shit all night, threatening to jump me after the gig, and once the gig was over, I stood around with the bands and watched them get thrown out by Jillian's security and then swooshed away by Fremont St. security for being smelly and stupid in public, which was the least of their offenses that day. I took another drink from my PBR tall boy and just laughed at the absurdity of it all. Can't blame them for trying I guess. Fucking idiots.
After my girlfriend at the time and I said our goodbyes to Mr. Brannon and Co., we zipped off to Squiggy's to partake in some drunken, food throwing, running around naked, Punk Rock shenanigans with The Mapes (of course - click here for pictures) and The Anchor (click here for pictures), a band from Austin that Karl Bakla was hyping me up about big time before the gig, and they didn't disappoint. Tuff sounding catchy Punk Rock played by a bunch of drunken misfits, with the Drummer coming out dressed as Kermit The Frog at the beginning of the bands set and ending up completely naked and Keith Moon fucked up by the end of the bands set. You definitely had to be there to believe it... as usual. I remember that the Mapes were on fire this particular evening, playing with reckless, drunken abandon with the usual assortment of Ding-Dong's, bananas, hot dogs, and gawd knows what else being thrown around, and in the midst of all this, someone thought it was a good idea to light off some left over 4th of July fireworks inside the tiny little bar, which just goes to show you that us Punks are a dumb lot and we learned nothink from the Great White nightclub fire that had happened years before... heh heh.
Everything's updated. See you at that Mustard Plug / The Toasters gig @ the Dive on Friday!! :-)
