Old School Thursday and scotch drinking

Happy Thursday!

Started to drink scotch tonight. A good friend brought 2 bottles and I really liked the isley scotch. Damn I am refined!

Now on to the music

feeling kinda mello and reflective. damn scotch!

This is Planet Caravan by Pantera. It is a remake from Black Sabbath and after the death of the guitarist Dimebag Darrell the song really takes me back to the shows I saw him at and the time I met him when touring with his new band Damage Plan.

I know its really not old school but it is old and dammit this is MY blog. Enjoy my naughty little monkeys

Feh Monday

Not a whole lot happenin here.

Our computer system tried to crash all day long. This will mean that I will be 2wice as busy tomorrow.

You ever wonder why good bands out out really crappy videos? I watch the 80's videos on VH1 Classic and I see bands like Heart, 38 Special and Dio and wonder....what the hell??

Oh well. Sorry to be so boring but really not a whole lot going on.

Tomorrow maybe I will do something exciting like shave a Wookie or freeze Contagion in Carbonite

Wonkey Saturday

Well BatMite was supposed to be here this weekend. I got a call Friday after work from her.."daddy daddy please please please dont say no!"

I thought that this would be one of those requests to buy something or ask for money.

Nope she had the last 6th grade dance of the year on Friday and really wanted to go. Her mom said it was cool and even thiough I was really looking forward to spending some time with her I understand that this would prolly be the last time she would see all of her friends before spending the summer with me.

I found out from her mom afterwards that the main reason was that a boy she really likes was supposed to be there.

Well now with the weekend free I headed to the Hope and Anchor pub to meet Contagion and Grau (now of the orgy) for a few.

After a good afternoon and evenong there annoying or just pissing of the bartenders we decided to head to a local german resturant for more beer and food.

Not a bad night out and now I am just back from starting the Cinco De mayo mini tour at Old Chicago.

What a wonkey weekend

I need your help

I need your advice on something.

Lately Batmite has been acting up a bit at her moms house and at school. Things like not listening to her mom and doing the opposite.
Example..after school she is supposed to come home until her mom comes home. Her mom came home and no Batmite.
After a few calls it turns out that she and 2 friends decided to walk down to a local park.
As Batmite saw her mom coming down the street she turned in the opposite direction and ran away.
She had no explaination for why she did this.
It's things like this that have been piling up.

At first I thought that it was just the fact that she will be 13 this October. Teenage suff. I can deal with that. Hell I remember ME back then.

Then it kept happening. Then I started to think that is it the sitution we put her in? 2 households and the split. Is she turning into one of these messed up kids that divorce just jacks them up?

I talked to her tonight after another little episode and just felt so helpless. Is this what parents go through? How can they right the ship?
How can they get back the wonderful kid that was there just a year ago?

Is is the teenage hormones?

Christ I feel so helpless and this is something that I desperately need to get back in control. I need my little girl back.

So please any words of advice you can offer I am in need of.

Wacky Wednesday

Work sucked. (of course)

Filed the taxes.

No work for me tomorrow. took the day off

Looking for places to drink tonight.

What are you doing tonight?

Old Skool Thursday

It's Back!!!!!

I know that I have been a bit lax in geting this on a regular basis but the wine is fine and we are back!

This week is all about the decade of decadence. We are playing the 80's hair this week

1st up is a Chicago band called Enuffs Z Nuff. I liked them and their 2nd album Strength was really good.

Next up is Lita Ford. Goddess. Nuff Said

This is Queensryche with the best track off of Operation Mindcrime. Saw them at the House Of Blues in Chicago a few years ago. One of the best shows I have been to

lastly my metal minions is a band from Las vegas called Slaughter. I have seen them a few times and they always put on a good show. One time was at Alpine Valley in Wis opening for Ozzy on the No More Tears tour. People in the lawn seats started ripping the sod up and throwing it. A huge sod fight during the show that almost stopped the show.

The video below shows you that every rocker has a soft side

Funny Site

A Co worker today on my way out of the HellGate said "If Chuck Norris was here he would roundhouse kick mangement to death"

For some strange reason this made me giggle (i know!!!)

I headed to a site

Here are a few of the funniest

There are no disabled people. Only people who have met Chuck Norris.

Chuck Norris recently had the idea to sell his urine as a canned beverage. We know this beverage as Red Bull

Chuck Norris has the greatest Poker-Face of all time. He won the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite holding only a Joker, a Get out of Jail Free Monopoloy card, a 2 of clubs, 7 of spades and a green #4 card from the game UNO.

Some people wear Superman pajamas. Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas.

It takes Chuck Norris 20 minutes to watch 60 Minutes.

Chuck Norris has never won an Academy Award for acting... because he's not acting.

And now you know.....

Wacky Wednesday
