if it isn't one thing it's another. I can't seem to catch a break! LOL If it's not one piddly ass piss ant thing after another, ya know?
I came Home after an incredible Saturday night out with Friends and Family, starting off with Mike's Surprise Birthday Party get together @ P.T's Pub, and then the White Kaps / Glue Gun gig @ Favorites, and I took lots of photos of both events. I uploaded them to the portable hard drive connected to my computer when I got the chance, and then I passed out happy and content. I awoke the next afternoon and began to start editing them to post them up on Facebook and shit and my computer isn't reading the device. I can't access the pictures. Strange. I start and restart the computer, but it still doesn't read the hard drive. I try using a different USB port, I try starting/restarting the portable hard drive itself, I switch out the cords, try it in Safe mode, nothing works. I am fucking screwed. All my Pictures were on there - ALL of them. Years worth. Like I said, if it's not one thing it's another... phooey!
I'm not letting it get to me though - nope! I know there's a way to salvage everything that's on there (I hope!), and I had too much fun hanging out and making the scene these past few days to let it deter me at this particular moment. Nope! There's too much going on to be Positive about, like this Ditch Dust BBQ thing happening this weekend - click here to check out the Facebook page with all the info. It's being brought to you by Blue Tile Lounge Presents, Let It Roll Skateboarding, ODCFX.com and Double Down Radio. Oh, and the Hawaiian Hot Dog people are going to be there as well, just in case you get the munchies or something. ;-) It's all going down in Boulder City this Sat afternoon, and it's being hosted by Brian Brannon of J.F.A., who are playing later that night at the LVCS with Guilty By Association, IDFI, American Buckshot, G.F.I. from Slam Diego who, if you haven't seen them play before, are fanfuckingtastic, and Mersa, who are pretty good themselves. Yeah, it's gonna be a fun filled, long and busy day on Sat., and if you're not doing anything else, you should consider hanging out. The skate thing is free, and it's only $5 to get into the gig later that night. That's some pretty cheap entertainment right there. Probably cost you more for gas and beer than anything else. Wait - did I say 'probably'? I meant to say 'definitely'. ;-)
Everything is updated. Loads of new stuff posted and available for your perusal - stuff like the Gig Review Dean did for the Vegascendents gig @ the Double Clown a few weeks ago, and you can click here to check that out. And speaking of Gig Reviews, Senor Karl Bakla did one for the Rapewhistle / Fuck The Facts / Gods America / Nests gig @ Favorites that went down a few weeks ago, and you can click here to read that one. I also posted some Pictures of the Tinglerz playing @ the LVCS (click here to check them out) and Soto St. playing @ the Double Clown - click here to check those out. I also had a new posting in the Tunes section on a Legendary Las Vegas Hardcore band called O.T. Factor for their 2nd release called Legends, but I found that the band had released the stuff on their old Myspace page, so I 86'd it. I really knew nothing about the band, and I still don't, but they do have a Facebook page, so click here to check out what they're up to now, and click here to go to the bands Myspace page to see what they were up to back then, and to listen to the Legends release, as well as some other songs from another release of theirs. Again, good stuff.
