Saw some bands last night. This was the very first time that I chose to wear ear plugs for the entire show. It was strange. I was introduced to a few people by friends while hanging out at the bar. This is always awkward, fishing those things out of your ear to hear what they may be saying. One can also just sit there and pretend to hear, pretend to be interested in what they may be saying. But, that’s not nice or genuine. Ear plugs. It is easier to hear certain things when the bands play. High-hats and vocals oddly enough resonate to great degree. All that vibration is quelled. It is rather like hearing in a vacuum. Kills conversation though. It is good to have your hearing remain! (excellent trade off)Tweet
Last night, I partied with some of the cats that hold the NOTACON event here in Cleveland. We danced, grilled, drank and had a great time. This one guy (name escapes me) cooked a sweet “Thai”pork roast, had a little “heat” which was quelled by the lemon in the marinade. Notacon is a technology based event and community with a penchant for the “out there.” Cool cats indeed! Someone told me of the presence of Circuit Bent dildos in previous years. This might be a delightful thing to check out this year.Tweet
These are a bunch of collected photos from Dave Mansbach, the Animographer and Laura the Red. They are from the 198th Infinite # of Sounds gig! We (the 9-Volt Haunted House) and Fluxmonkey performed as well! We all tore it up at the end of the evening together in the “Zombie Jam.” This event took place at Bela Dubby in Lakewood, Ohio. Thanks to all of our people for show up and to those who took these great shots to document the evening. Cheers!
So, within our distracted and silly discussions at band practice we (the 9-Volt Haunted House) found ourselves recalling a few years back when Larry “Wild Man” Fischer performed the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show. The footage is HERE. The footage is rather exploitative, as were his dealings with Frank Zappa. Besides that, we did discover that Wild Man Fischer also had some recordings with the comedy dou of Barnes and Barnes. This in turn reminded us of the fish heads video:
Per my previous post, I now have a new phone and I’m taking calls. (how exciting) I was able to retain the contacts stored in the broken phone’s memory. (also exciting) I have corrected the settings for comments here on my blog, so please comment away. They do have to be approved though, but I’m not too fussy. (more excitement)
Catholic churches are consolidating and closing in the Greater Cleveland/Akron area. The list was released over the weekend! One of them (Our Lady of Mercy) a once primarily Slovak parish nestled in the heart of Cleveland’s Tremont neighborhood, is about four doors down from where I reside. In between which is another condemned house. We’ll see what happens. I gotta go for now, however this stuff really needs further examination. Holy freaking yikes!!!
I will have more photos and other jive for you soon as well! Crazy!Tweet
There is something about the sun, amazing. I was driving to my office this morning and everything looked great. Lake Erie was freakin‘ glowing!!! There were still clouds hovering around, but there was still the right amount of sunlight out there to make even the lousy parts of Cleveland look amazing. I tried to take a few photos, which I’ll check out (perhaps) later and get transfer them off my phone. The “rock and roll” hall of fame was awash with light. Morning sunshine is perhaps the most cutting thing. It was not killing my eyes while driving, the way it potentially can (sunglasses or not). I did see something that made me a bit sad though on West 28th street. (apart from the usual stuff) There were a group of kids walking to school and taunting another child. The kid appeared to be crying and nearly walked in front of my car. He then proceeded to continue walking after my car and up the ON RAMP of the freeway, this I could see from my rear view mirror. Yikes! Where do you think you’re going? The sun shines on sad things too.Tweet
This is a bad move. Not that difficult to avoid pole. Not that difficult to stay on street. I took this photo while driving, managed to stay in lane and on road. Too bad. Maybe phone conversation was too steamy. Who knows?Tweet
