Where Was Bliss Again?

Rev Room, Retox, Rebar...Re Re Re Rebar it is!

Please stop buying Chrissy drinks.
She can afford to buy her own, at her own pace.
Strong-arming her into drinking your gift shots is bad for everyone, so cut that shit out.
She has a job to do.

Making Bad Decisions

At the Revolution Room on a Sunday night.

I don't have much to say, except that adding just 1 more light made a huge difference, the phrase "Dude, I drank 11 bullblasters!" will go down in history, I hate being told to 'turn it down', and I'm getting much better at backing-up a trailer even though I still hate it.
The tip jar covered half of the truck rental, which isn't too bad.
Unfortunately, last week's borrowed POS truck (high bumper hitch) resulted in the trailer's jack getting stuck in the fully extended position, so it will need to be replaced.
Only $20 for a new jack, and it's yet another improvement that was needed.
I also figured out how to get the door to close all the way!!

The Show Must Go On...

Even if it means getting assraped.

$19.95 a day?

Plus $10/day ultra-insurance. (A must-have item--trust me on this!!!)
Plus gas, because you gotta have gas.

But...the 59 cents per mile adds up pretty damn fast.
For two nights in-town we're looking at around $115.
(A single night in Kerrville would run $125!).

After Chrissy pimped the tip jar tonight we're 25% of the way there.
Revolution Room should be good for most of the rest--y'all come out tonight?!?!
(Sunday May 24!)

Bliss & Drive Set A Bad Example

Like some college party where the reach-arounds get out of hand (?) and scare away the sorority chicks, only in our case it was just a matter of too many drinks.

String Theory At Sherlock's

It's always fun to do a String Theory show.
They were my main gig in 2006-7, but now we only play once a month so it's more like a reunion and we never get on each other's nerves.
All professionals, we just show up on time and rub another one out.

The long conversations Ruben and I share are legendary:
"How's it going?"
"It's good. How you doin'?"

Since two of the guys are also in The Max and that band is playing Sherlock's this weekend, we got the added bonus of using The Max's lights.
More lights=better pictures.
Wouldn't have minded adding their sound gear to the mix...

Revolution Room Gets Ricockulous

El RevRoom was a little un-crowded tonight, but according to my sources it was that way everywhere. Bliss still gave all they had for the peoples.

Don't get me wrong--it was like 57% of a normal RevRoom crowd, and they were deeply into our music.

She tried, but the free drinks kept coming.
Y'all need to settle the fuck down and let us put on our best show.
Put that money in the tip jar so I can afford to pay for truck damage.

I'm surprised she isn't flashing "the shocker".

I have new nicknames for everyone in the band.
In no particular order, Bliss is:
Rehab (the good kind)
Sweats like a whore in church
Les Paul Reed Smith
Loud Nine
Higher than bat pussy
Most of the above

Which one am I?

Just Wedge It In @ Retox

Wedging a truck + band trailer into the only available loading zone?
Not easy or fun at all.
Fixing the damage to this borrowed truck after hitting a deer on the way home from Kerrville came to $3600.
So I'm being very careful with it.

Am I looking forward to taking it to Kerrville again next week?
Am I?
Fuck No.
Don't be stupid.
I'm shitting bricks already, so the next 7 days will be hell.

Oh yeah--the show went great at Retox.
Had to wedge the newer audience members into a standing-room-only situation.

Sorry, but the lights suck at the 'tox lately, and I wasn't really in the mood to take pictures anyway.

Did I mention the $3600?
