"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." Yes, the immortal quote from none other than Ferris Bueller. Or wait, maybe it was John Lennon. I get them confused. Yes, indeed, it was John Lennon. It was Ferris that said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and take a look around once in a while, you could miss it." They both sang Twist and Shout, so I'm sure you understand my confusion. Or was it Paul who sang that one? I know it wasn't Ringo. No, I'm sure it was John. Ringo sang the No No Song. But I digress.
I've been so busy making other plans that I had a feeling I've been missing a lot. So today I stopped down and took a look around. That included dropping in at some of my favorite band websites, first stop Nu Shooz. No word on a reunion tour yet, so I moved on to Beth Hart and found that she was back touring in the US! Singing for Jeff Beck. I immediately sent a text message with the Chicago date to Moist Rub on my Verizon VCast phone to share the news, but remembered that he doesn't have a Verizon VCast phone. I think he donated his to a local charity that needed the hottest new videos at their fingertips. So I hopped in my Honda Ridgeline and rode in style to his house, where I waded through a throng of chicks camped out on his lawn waiting for just a glimpse of their hero. I found him inside strumming his guitar, courtesy of Gibson, and I nervously asked him to be my date. I don't think he heard me over the power chords, so I left a note on his fridge and I'm still waiting to her back. Update: He said yes! lonelyleper41 is no longer lonely!
But while perusing the Beth Hart site I checked out some vids. And after just a few seconds, the sorryness of our CBS Rock Stars became apparent. Same as last year. Show me one rocker that can hold xe's own against Ms. Hart. None of them are even worthy to wash her balls. I'm very bitter. I can't believe I spent all this time watching another season when I could have been learning conversational Albanian. One never knows when one might end up in the Balkans. But I digress.
Go buy a Beth Hart CD or DVD. Buy a ticket to her show. Come to the Chicago Theater show on September 19 with me and Moist. If you can't go out on a school night, then meet me in Milwaukee for The Von Erichs show on September 22. Just turn off the damn TV for a while. I understand the need to catch a Wings rerun every once in a while, but doesn't your couch need a break?
Finally thanks to everyone that came around this season - we've had over 28,000 hits since the season started and love every one of you. Except that creepy guy in Little Rock that keeps sending us pictures of his nipples. In case you're new around here, we continue to blog about stuff when Rock Star ends so stick around. Some of it sucks and some of it doesn't. We also have a message board to hang out at if you want to tell us how much you weigh, celebrate David Hasselhoff, or tell us what new releases are worthy of our time. Rock on, y'all.
