People can be assholes no matter what side of the stage their on.

May 22, 2010

So…same night…two different places.  Watching one show…and I have ‘that guy’ in my way…you know the one who just will not budge either direction even though you have asked politely several times for him to move…and then when you go to get passed him he moves in to you.  Well he did that…even though we had been standing in the same spot for two hours…which was on the side…out of the way.  Any how…I wound up grabbing him firmly by the back of the neck and informed him that he need not rant any longer…I has said excuse me 3x.  Life goes on.

So an hour later…different venue, different show…I notice another annoying personality trait…this from some one who was going on the stage.  What is the deal with musicians who just are too stressed out by a gig…so much so that they can’t talk and be normal to people.  Playing a t shitty bar is such a big deal that they just can’t deal with it.  Just a personal observation…but if you have been playing for 20+ years, and you are really tweaked out by a local show in your home town…at a bar…on any random night…maybe it’s time for you to find a new hobby.

THC begins their Biggets Loser (aka Least Fat Bastard) Contest.

May 22, 2010

So on Monday we got together and had our weigh-in followed by ‘the last supper’ at a Chinese Buffet in Cheektowaga (yes I know…the dinner should have been first :)).  Anyhow…the official beginning weights are Mike @ 200LB, Me/Gabe @ 225LB, and Big Earl at 300LB even.  In the essence of full disclosure Earl had his boots on so he’ll were them for the future weigh ins.  Pictures of the weigh-in to follow shortly.

Once I figure out the best way to have the fans vote on who they think will win I’ll let everyone know.

So we’re buying the ‘Jambulance’ this weekend!

May 21, 2010

So we are buying a 1984 Ford Ambulance this weekend.  With some love and care it will become the ‘Jambulance’…a diesel powered mobile performance/touring unit.  When done it will have everything we need to get us on the road including the ability to sleep three, haul all of the gear…and most importantly…be able to pull up and play anywhere at a moments notice without unloading anything!  Will post ‘before’ pics as soon as we procure it!
