Sat. was a pretty good day. The get together @ Clay's house for his Birthday BBQ - Thank You celebration was the shit! The food was exquisite, all put together by his better half Denise and all the other girls who were pitching in to help out, and there wasn't any cake, booooooo, but there was an amazing tray of cookies and pastries in the kitchen that was close enough and, I believe, hand made! :-) Their house is impressive, and it's exactly the type of house you'd think someone like Clay and Denise would live in, which is the highest compliment I can give. There's a laundry room / bar in the basement, which is where I took that picture, and even the soundproofed band room has a bar in it. I think every room in the house had a bar in it, but I'm not really sure. It was just good vibes all around, with good old Friends in attendance, including Frank, who used to run Balcony Lights when he lived here. He lives in Portland now, and it was good seeing him and catching up. I hated leaving the party early, but I wanted to see Unfair Fight @ Hellpop!, so I reluctantly did, and it was definitely worth the effort.
I got there just in time to see Unfair Fight just fucking kill it, and they pretty much did it before a crowd of kids who couldn't of cared less; more content to drink their Steel Reserve then to watch the band play. Whatever. I sat through the next 2 bands that played, Morbid Faith and The Time Crashers, in an utter state of disgusted disbelief as they just sucked and sputtered and fucked up and stop and started and stupidly played their way through one half hour set of Embarrassment right after another, and the kids ate it up! LOL Wow it was bad. I haven't seen such acts of atrociousness and dreadfulness in quite a long time. I couldn't stop watching it was so bad. The kids were having fun though, so I guess that's all that
counts. After awhile I couldn't take the suckiness of it all anymore, so with Bob in tow (of course), I headed elsewhere in search of Fun for the evening, where we found it @ the Beijing Spa & Massage, but that's another story for another time. ;-)
Everything is updated! Lots of Pictures added to the website, including the pix of Ainjil's and Dave's Baby Shower, The Rocky Horror Picture Show presentation @ Artifice, and Battle Born playing @ Backstage Bar & Billiards. Go to the Pictures page by clicking here to check them all out. They're not as good as they should of been, because my camera was acting up big time, but whatever. I do what I do for me, not you! It's gonna be a great week... I just knows it.
