Hey man, Nice shirt!

People are always complimenting me on my T-shirt or my hat. To me it just seems kinda silly. I don’t really know how to respond to these compliments. Usually at least once a night someone will say “hey, Nice shirt!” or “I Like that hat!”.Should I say “Thank you I’ve been dressing myself for a while now” or “yeah I bought it this way.” ? I mean what are they actually complimenting? The shirt? My fashion sense? I didn’t make the damn thing. To me it’s just something I threw on. I wasn’t really looking for anyone’s approval.
So I was at work tonight and I really had to piss. I finally got a free second and made a break for the john. Just as I am reaching out for the door some guy taps my shoulder and starts giving me a drink order. Then he tells me no big rush, when I get a chance. Couldn't he fucking wait till I got back behind the bar if it was no big rush? Jeezus let a guy take a whiz. So then I get in the mens room and there is some other retard that thinks I want to have a conversation while I am taking a leak. For the record when my feet are squishing around in piss, puke and god knows what else in a room that smells worse than a port-o-let thats been baking in the sun for a month and I am holding my dick in my hand pissing into a metal trough, having a conversation with the moron standing next to me is the last thing I want to do. To top it off the fucktard actually asks me to get him a beer when I get back to the bar. I really just wanted to turn to the side and piss on his leg. Then maybe, just maybe he might realize that I am not behind the bar at that moment but that I AM TAKING A PISS!

I need a vacation!

I am so beat. I feel like I am being lazy but I am just exhausted. Sometimes these night shifts just take everything out of me. I don't start feeling awake until about 2 or 3 in the morning but by 9 am I am out of it. I'm kinda bummed out that Halloween falls on a night that I work. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Everything fun is happening during the weekend when I work. Everyone is asking me what I am gonna dress up as but it is a pain in the ass to dress up when ya gotta work. A mask is too hot and make-up would just be everywhere about an hour in to working.

Funny How Things Change

The Saints beat the Eagles? The sportscasters are now changing their tone. The Saints are for real. That's funny after hearing at the beginning of the season that we would be in last place; lucky if we even got 5 wins all season. They are all waiting for the bottom to fall out from under the Saints. Well it ain't gonna happen. Most of us in New Orleans knew we had something special. New coach, excellent draft pick, great trades and free agent acquisitions, and weeding out some of the guys who just didn't fit on the team. Now I am not saying we are going to the bowl, but we have just as much of a chance as anyone. I guess what I am saying is that we have been grossly underestimated by the media.

Aww Shit!

So this morning I took of my shorts and threw them on the floor before I went to sleep. I woke up half awake tonight and threw my shorts on to go to the kitchen to get a drink to flush the corpse that died in my mouth out. As I am putting on my shorts I noticed something sticky and wet on my leg. The bastard dog above had decided to shit in my shorts! It wasn't like turds either. It was the damn runny stuff. Talk about a shitty way to start your day.

Halloween is getting closer

Halloween is my favorite holiday. Unfortunately I am pretty sure I am working that night. so now I am not sure what I am gonna do. Probably nothing. It's kinda hard to work dressed up as it gets pretty hot behind the bar. Even if I wear make-up it will more than likely be smeared halfway through my shift.
Anyways I think I will go to House Of Shock at some point. It's a New Orleans Halloween tradition. I do however miss the Mermaid Lounge. They almost always had the best show on Halloween night. In fact there were very few times that I would go to The Mermaid except on Halloween night.
Speaking of the music scene here in New Orleans; I miss the good old days. Yeah there are plenty of local bands that still play here. I mean you have your New Orleans staples: The Meters, The Radiators, Rebirth, Neville Brothers, and Galactic. The local rock/metal/punk scene still has it's staples too: Eyehategod, Pallbearers, Spickle, Suplecs, and Hawg Jaw. Most of these guys have been around on the scene for a long time in one band or another. The problem is getting the bigger named bands here.
Since Tipitina's went the way of only booking local staples and jam bands, and Twiropa is history; That leaves House of Blues and One Eyed Jack's to book the named bands. I have seen some of the best shows in my life at Tipitina's. Bad Brains, Helmet, the Melvins, Butthole Surfers, and GWAR just to name a few. Everybody used to play Tip's Marilyn Manson even played there. Okay so Tip's lost it's way but how in the hell do you lose P-Funk? Okay so then there is House of Blues who had to create a second venue, The Parish, to accommodate the bands Tipitina's was not booking. I detest House of Blues but if you wanna see bands like Ministry, Helmet, Celtic Frost, Slayer, or any good hip-hop shows this is probably where you'll end up going. By the way when House of Blues started they had some support for the local bands. They used to have a night (maybe Monday) that was for the local bands to come in and play. As for the other venues One Eyed Jack's, Howlin Wolf, Republic, and the Venue they can all do better. One Eyed Jacks has some love for the local set and they do bring in some of the indie/underground bands but looking at this months schedule it looks more like a summer schedule. Howlin Wolf can be very unpredictable but then pull a Hank III show outta their ass. I like the Wolf but I think they can do more. Republic and the Venue have potential to push the envelope further with some good hip-hop shows.
I have one more thing to bitch about Voodoo Fest. This year has got to be the weakest line-up for this 2 day event I have ever seen. Even last year when this city was in complete shambles the line-up was better. This year to main draws are supposed to be The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Duran Duran? How is that supposed to compare to some of the past line ups? Queens Of The Stone Age, The Stooges (yes the Motherfucking STOOGES with Iggy Pop),Perfect Circle, Mos Def, De La Soul, Eminem, Snoop Dog, and the Pixies. This year it's seems like they just took who ever they could get. Okay they got Social Distortion, Wu Tang, and the Flaming Lips but Voodoo should be bigger than that. Why not book Iron Maiden, A.F.I., Radiohead, Deftones, Bad Religion, The Mars Volta, Primus, Outkast, Beastie Boys, or even have the Gorillaz come do their thing. I mean get some powerhouse names in there. Some bands that people will actually travel here to see.
Alright I guess I am done bitchin for now.......

Buddha and The Butterfly

This was a butterfly that was attacked by one of our cats. The injured butterfly took refuge on our Buddha statue. I came back later and the critter was gone. Maybe the cats got to it again.

So I am pretty excited. Today I purchased a Sony Alpha. This is Sony's first ever digital SLR camera. It's pretty awesome! I can't wait to start taking pictures. I was playing with it in my room a little today. I took a picture of my CD shelf from across the room. I COULD ACTUALLY READ THE TITLES ON THE SPINES OF THE CDs! Anyways I will be sharing some photos with you soon.

Why do crackheads live forever??

I just would like to know how much crack it takes to kill a crackhead. I mean seriously I think I would save up enough to help them get there. Is there a crack pipe in heaven? (I think that was a 2 Pac song). I am gettin fed up with it. I love when they come in to the bar and order a Gin and Jews and pay with a handful of change they just bummed off people. Is dirty ratty money a prerequisite for being a crackhead? Does your single dollar bill have to be almost unrecognizable? How green or black can that handful of nickels be? Do you really think you are that important that I should stop serving the customer I am with to give you a "solid quarter" for your handful of pennies? Sorry all I have is liquid quarters, all out of the solid ones. Just keep giving me that 3 tooth smile. I want to invent a new crack. One that I will promote as the greatest high ever. 1 hit and you die. I think that might solve a lot of problems.
"Hey man try this out.."
"What that is?"
"Aw man this that soopa crack..."
"Aw shit, lemme git somma dat"
"cough,cough, CROAK!"
"Damn! This crack is da bomb!"

Maybe I should just wish that the crackheads switch to Heroin. Then they would be too laid out to come in and bother people.

1/4 GIN (The Cheaper The Better)
1/4 Vodka(Again the cheaper the better)
1/4 Shot of Milwalkees Best Beer
1/4 Cranberry Juice
A splash of run-off from your spill mat

Serve warm.

Not dead yet

Well I haven't passed away from the miserable tooth. I went to the emergency room yesterday just to get a script for antibiotics. An expensive trip I am sure. I told the doctor I wasn't feeling any pain but he prescribed me Vicodan anyways. I worked last night even though I was exhausted. I pretty much got my ass kicked all night. I am sure tonight will be kinda boring but at least I'll have a few cool people to keep me company. More later......
