“The problem with creating, whether it is a song, a piece of art or a website, it is already outdated by the time it takes it first gasp of air. I have a lot of trouble integrating the past with the present, and seem to be missing the part of my brain that is comforted by
Everyone was excited to see the Spaceshuttle Endeadvor flyby. This outdated piece of tech junk was being carried by another outdated piece of tech junk, the 747 -- which I say is the true hero in this story. Do you think they still have the ashtrays next to the toilets in 747?
I am still feeling very tired and slow from having cancer last year.
I went to the doctor today to see if there was anything else wrong.
The doctor asked me, “What do you do for fun?”, I said, “what do I do that’s NOT fun?”!
I just found a list called, “Things I’m Into” which a wrote over 5 years ago. Seems I am still into the same things…
Blimps, airships, airplanes, classic rock, album covers, uber pop images and icons, Formosa restaurant, Continue reading →
Ronnie Elvis James rules. He plays in Warner Drive, DJs at the Viper Room, is the guitarist in the Shocker (that is the band we play in together), and may I say, one of the best friends. Our adventures together have been epic and his support over these last couple of years blows my mind. SO of course when it comes to his bday, I am ready to roll.
Ronnie called me up a day before and said that he had gotten as many of the past Shocker members to come onstage and do a song. Evie Evil played a few songs as well and Justin and I got to sing backup on Rise Above (Black Flag).
Although I hadn’t stepped on stage in 4 years, it was pretty much the best thing ever.
June 25, 2011 – Annual Examine with Dr. Ronald Sue and SURPRISE! Thyroid cancer! It’s my second major surgery of the year. I’ve had no major medical issues my entire life, other then instances of bruised ego and a broken heart here and there. For any friends I didn’t get to speak to personally when I found out, I am sorry, I just found out myself 3 weeks ago and rushed to tie up work, life, make sure everything was ok at home. All is well, next step may or may not be radiation and sexy hospital gowns.
Just pulling into sunset music fest. Anyone got a line on parking?
It's that time of the year when Chris and I host our Gateway to Summer event at Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet and try and convince you all to come. So here's the convincing: Gods of Thunder are playing. Noon, 1:30 and 3:30 We will get there at 2 pm. The Gods of Thunder (Kiss Tribute Band) are really good, make-up, costumes, stage moves, stacked heels.
I heart Van Stone
On the Strip, 3 bands, 3 venues. Thunder Dick, Cock Pit and 7 Deadly Sins. In one nite?! What are the odds.
I just submitted “For the Horde” to the big screen at the Gibson Amp and they just ran it!
Have extra tix for Whitesnake and Judas Priest at Gibbon Amp….. yes I said Whitesnake!

Twitter Makes Me Bitter.
I believe this list has been passed around the internet, added onto and sent, so I am not offering up anything new, it just makes me laugh and reminds me how challenging communicating in English can be.
I got super sick for most of 07 and the beginning of 08. I have a weird muscle wasting disease that is now controlled by drugs, but I had to have surgery AND Vicodin and everything!

Subj: The Lastest On the Next Tour Date: 94-09-17 05:16:14 EDT From: L7s I guess I should have warned you all that some dates may get moved and messed with (my fault sorry). Here is the lastest so far. I will most likely have to post another revision again in a week. European/British dates will be on there way soon too. BTW. I just saw the tour posters that TAZ is doing for this tour and they look extra cool! L7 - FALL 94 with The Melvins and Wool (confirmed dates as of September 14, 1994)

Subj: Feast of Snakes #30 Date: 94-08-21 14:36:18 EDT From: L7s Feast of Snakes #30 (July 14-Miami) We sat and waited for the answer to the big question. Will we be going to New Orleans for an extra day off or are we staying in Florida to do tomorrow's show? Earlier today word came down the pipe that the Deland grounds (tomorrow's show place) was covered in water. That would not have been a problem on its
Subj: Driving the Shoulder#26 (part 1) Date: 94-08-13 00:22:22 EDT From: L7s Crew View-Driving the Shoulder#26 (part 1) (Aug. 3-Providence, R.I.) By Double O Joe We sat in a Los Angeles parking lot style traffic jam on the Rhode Island highway, our speedy trip to the show now an impossible dream. The kids in the cars around us kept jumping out to piss in the bushes or change seats. Basically it was a slow moving tailgate party, which is fine if you don't have a life, but we do. L7's road crew is a precision machine,
Subj: Driving the Shoulder (part 2) Date: 94-08-13 00:27:59 EDT From: L7s Driving the Shoulder #26 (part 2) We (the Band) left an hour after the crew, enjoying our status as "the Talent". Everyone took a cab except for me, I hitched a ride with our Reprise/Warner rep. Helena. Helena and I left about fifteen minutes before the rest did with two hours to do what should have been forty minutes. We were flying down the highway up until we hit the same log jam that the bus was entangled in. We sat and we sat then we would dribble forward a few inches than sat some more.
"Fire Eating Lesbians" #28 (Aug12-13, Atlanta) Every now and than one of the Lollapalovehandle bands will play an extra gig at night or on a night off. Most of these shows are unannounced and are the best bet for a fun evening. On this, the night of the 12th of Aug., everyone (and I'm talking all of the 300 plus people who are part of Loafapaloosers) agreed to meet first at the warehouse where Tribe was playing than
Subj: Electrocution Avoidance #27 Date: 94-08-13 00:38:53 EDT From: L7s Mud Slinging and Electrocution Avoidance #27 (Aug. 4- Cleveland, OH.) I am in one of the Carolinas at the moment and I met this guy named Paul LaFata.
We love Philly. We first came here in 1988. We were on a national tour supporting Bad Religion and although those guys are the coolest, the tour was an ass dragger.
