Talk about a show that inspires knee-jerk reactions. Remember the beginning when Suzie and JD were close to being tossed for early indiscretions like forgetting lyrics and face fucking the audience at the performance show? And I briefly, ever so briefly considered Wil a contender back around the time Saint Jordis could do no wrong. Then I was sure that MiG had this thing locked up and was a perfect fit before he turned into Steve Perry. Not too soon after that declaration, I threatened to suffocate Marty with a pillow and then stated a week later that he was the only choice that OBINXS could make. Now I’m beginning to think that even though the wheels fly off the JD-mobile every other week, he still might be the roit choice here. Then I can get back to listening to Beth Hart and Concrete Blonde and just wait for the Lovehammers to roll through Dallas. But I digress.
Why no mansion show update from Sid? Because Sid F’er has foregone a salary in return for LeperPop Publishing stock options, he still has a day job that gets extremely busy when catastrophes like Katrina strike. Don’t worry, I’m not answering phones for FEMA, however I am being forced to travel this Sunday thus missing half the NFL openers and the Rock Star mansion show. I considered resigning the day job, but then I’d probably have to cancel cable to save money and I’d miss the damn show anyway. Sure, I could watch it at a friend’s house, but they get all annoyed when I whip out the PowerBook G4 to take notes and tell them to shut the hell up when they start flapping their gums. If you’re reading this blog, I’m sure you understand. So you’re in Moist Rub’s hairy, sweaty palms until Tuesday.
In the meantime I thought I’d share some photos of LeperPop’s visit to Hollywood to attend the August 14th taping. I know I’m a little late, but I just found out you don’t have to take digital prints in to get developed. Sid F’er was the designated driver on the trip, so photography credits go to Moist Rub and Stiv. I think they really captured the spirit of the trip.
If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a link to JD’s GFY shirt.
A link to MiG’s photo page.
Just a sampling of some of the fun stuff you can pick up in the Snarkgasm forum between shows. And I'll be back with an update on Tuesday.
Final note: RIP Gatemouth Brown. Had the pleasure of seeing Gate in concert a couple times. The last time was at Poor David's Pub and when he broke a guitar string, he let a guy in the front row change it out for him. And you know who that guy was? No, that guy was Mitch Comstein. He was a good guy.
