just when things were not so good

just when things were not so good

So, just when I though things were going good with the band, Jeremiah (bassist) sends all of us an email saying he is quitting. And then there were three. My burn is still peeling and annoying the hell out of me when it is dry. Amy came over for the weekend but I pretty much ruined it since I didn’t feel like going anywhere or…well…moving my body. I went back to her mom’s house to eat dinner with her. When…

Unless you live on an Island, you’ve seen this one before

Unless you live on an Island, you’ve seen this one before

Tuesday afternoon Amy had informed me that her brother had procured two tickets to an advanced screening of The Island in Pasadena.. Amy had been looking forward to seeing this movie for quite some time because of the Ewen McGregor factor. I thought it looked interesting, but didn’t/don’t trust Michael Bay. When I got home from work last night Amy surprised me with a giant pizza. It was an 18-inch pizza from Costco. Everything seemed good so far (except my…

Aeon in trouble

Aeon in trouble

By the way, if you feel like seeing something cool ruined once again by Hollywood producers – check this out. Aeon was tall. Aeon had boobs… Aeon wore a really tight S&M outfit, not a goth kid “I’m going to a type-o negative concert tonight” costume Her hair was curly, not “just out of the shower” straight. The whole show was about the war between two separate but similar city states (think Berlin Wall) Bregna and Monica…. where is Monica?…

This weekend Amy and I went to Redondo Beach. I made sure to put the sun block in the car. I did not however make sure to put it in the actual bag we walked down to the sand with. We lounged around on the beach for about four hours. Needless to say upon returning home I looked like I’d spliced my genes with that of a tomato. Amy wore her speedo swimsuit and a t-shirt the whole time so…

You know what, call me Toby Keith, but I think the rest of the world is making too much of a big deal about the London bombing. More people died in the Pennsylvania plane crash on 911 than died in the bombings yesterday.. Yet the unanimous response around the world is “oh my god, this is the most horrible thing ever and we’ll get those damn terrorists.” This is more or less the same reaction they produced after 9/11, except…

which one’s pink?

which one’s pink?

Did anybody else catch Pink Floyd’s appearance at Live 8? First of all, who knew that each band only had only 20 minutes to perform? That was kind of lame. Roger Waters looks like a withered up old hippie, while David Gilmour looks like an angry refined british country gentleman (he is Sir Gilmour after all). I was surprised by Waters’ singing. His voice was all strange and withered. The mood on stage seemed weird. It seemed like Waters was…

I’ve always wanted to see Corrosion of Conformity in concert as they have a really great sound and have been a really rock solid band for more than ten years (before that they were sort of an early Metallica speed metal knock-off). Well apparently it is a good thing I never followed up on that inclination. Jesus…at least I got to Pantera before Dimebag was offed.
