Thank You Hellbound Eddie

Eddie of Hellbound Hayride works at my local hardware store. I went in there this evening to buy some plumbers putty. I foolishly bought some elsewhere the other day and it was all dried-up and hard.
Anyway, I go to get the stuff tonight and Eddie helps me. As he handed me the little plastic tub of goo, I asked if I could squeeze it first. He just laughed and said "You can do whatever you want with it."

Unbelievable!

What is it about the illustrious Meet 'n' Greet pass that prompts complete strangers to ask if you have an extra one? Obviously, if you have ONE pass, you must have TWO - and the other has THEIR name on it. Do they really expect you to say, "Why, yes, I do! In fact, I was hoping to give it to someone I've never met before and who I will likely never see again, and all you have to do is accost me as I'm on my way to the restroom, and demand whatever contents you think are in my pockets."

Avalon's Catalina Island - 26 Miles Across the Sea

There's a magical place 26 miles across the sea from Los Angeles that the locals sometimes forget about. It's a good way to beat the traffic, smog and work burnout. It's Catalina, the Island of Avalon. Whether it be lazing around in the sun, treking on golf carts up into the mountain heights with views that are breathtaking, or kayaking across the clear blue ocean, Catalina has something to offer anyone who needs a getaway for a day.

Jesse's Girl For A Day

2005_0513westcoastchoppers0013.jpg
http://www.westcoastchoppers.com

You never know what you might find on Anaheim St. near the Port of Long Beach. Yes, it was a day of fun at West Coast Choppers, the home of chromed god, Jesse James. This doesn't look like a Monster Garage to me. It's a compound of cool old buildings with baroque cross chromed gates and a showroom full of cool choppers and a few rods.

2005_0513westcoastchoppers0031.jpg

Lots of memorbilia and Jesse this and that is a sure find. Yes, I'd say the dude from Long Beach done good, even winning himself Hollywood's sweetheart Sandra Bullock. If you've never seen West Coast Choppers it's worth your time to live on the wild side and take a tour. You might even spy the man himself riding around the lot. Oh, and don't forget to get a burger at Jesse's burger joint, Cisco's, up the street. It's small, clean, cute and has very good food. You'll see adorable pix of Jess'e prized pet, Cisco. Ruff, ruff!

Notes from Dublin, Part I

Ms. Jen, Barflies.net editor here. You may or may not know, but on Sept. 27, 2005, I moved away from Southern California to Dublin, Ireland, for graduate school. I have now been in Dublin for over 3 weeks and I have a major observation to share with all the lovely readers of Barflies.net.

No matter how much of a drunk you think you are or your friend is, you are a sober Program Sponsor next to the average weekend drinker around Dublin. Yep, they know how to throw back a few pints or 20 of them around here. Want to know how I know?

No I am not out at 2 or 3am to see the action myself, I actually been having a lovely 3 plus week vacation from bars, pubs and music venues. I have been reading at home.

But I have been walking around town during the day and evening and just about every 50 feet or so, one has to avoid a large puddle of barf or shit. Not dog shit. Dogs are scarce in Dublin, the dogs I have seen are tiny small with tiny small poohs. The shit on the streets is Big. Big, Human, Boy Shit.

Yep, instead of using the toilet at the pub or bar or venue or waiting to get at home or evening having the courtesy to shit their own pants, they drop trow and do it on the sidewalk.

Watch were you walk around this town...

This is the second time I have had to say "goodbye" to someone after the fact - a tragic accident - takes them away. It's hard to say goodbye in public, on a blog. Two times is two times too many. RIP John Skipper.

CBGB's

When I was in New York, some friends and I decided to head on over to CBGB's for the night. It was a Friday night and I was hoping for some good bands. With bands like Television, the Ramones, and Blondie that used to play at the club, I thought CBGB's would be the highlight of my trip. I don't have much to say except that I fell asleep with my head passed out on a table, not because I was drunk but because I was bored out of my mind. I guess I expected way too much.

This Little Piggy Went to...

babe.jpg

The Orange County Fair opened Friday, July 9 at the OC Fairgrounds. This year's theme is "Jammin' at the Fair." I've already made the first of my yearly pilgrimages to see the baby animals. On July 15, this little fellow had just been born. There are also baby chicks, bunnies, goats, cows, and sheep. I like the pigs the best! As a vegetarian, it's hard for me to imagine anyone eating the entry that they worked so hard to raise, but I also recognize that this country was built on a largely agrarian society. You can see these little fellows before they become bacon through August 1 at the Fair.

Erica's Birthday Party - Hogue Barmichaels, Friday, June 11, 2004

Erica Svenneby celebrated her birthday Friday night June 11 at Hogue Barmichael's in Newport Beach with bands The Irish Brothers, Black Monday, Creepy Nice Guy and a host of her friends on hand to wish her the best. Drinks were drunk, drunks were drunk, and a mosh pit formed.

Erica the Birthday Girl:

"Everybody was so sweet, and everyone was saying how great all the bands were. I'm glad you all were a part of such a great evening for me!"

Rusty Monday and Christina
Lowrider:

Someone should have told this gal that her pants were falling off. Actually, I think it was a look. (Erica, if this is your best friend or sister, I apologize right now). Mostly, I just felt sorry for this gal, because she needed attention so badly, and people were just laughing at her drunk ass. Literally.

LOST IN EAST LA!

tecate.jpg
Tecate 4 Tu

It was a carefree evening driving down the 5 freeway, as we headed for East LA with the windows down and the breeze totally screwing up our hair. Yet, there was an air of "bring it on baby" whipping through the car, that is until Frederico lost his way, totally bypassing East LA and ignoring my imploringly "nice" gestures of "I know this area and I think we've gone too far". "I go to Burbank often and we're not too far from there." But, I didn't care, because I had just been to the Boot Barn earlier and snagged a couple of cute shirts on sale, and Carlotta was having problems getting her lip liner on straight, so she was set on her lips, and not the map. Ricardo was along for the ride and the cool cd's playing in the car, until he too realized we were lost and then he got all pissy. When we suddenly approached the hillside of Echo Park, I said to Frederico, "Dammit you stupid bus driver, get the hell off this freeway here, and then turn onto San Fernando Rd. and follow it back, so that WE WILL get to East LA alive, even if we are to die there! (long run on sentence).

So, there we were cruising down San Fernando looking at all the old buildings and taco stands. Our salivating tongues longing for some carne asada while we read the signs - Tacos el carbon, Tacos La Fonda, and on and on. Ricardo with a map in one hand trying to figure out which way was up, or was it North, East, West, South, or "we're going to die" lock the doors.

Finally, we hopped back on the freeway and minutes later we approached the Indiana off ramp. And, then we passed Ditman.

Ditman? That name was pounding through my head, because I remember my mama talking about Ditman Ave. when I was just a little tacquito. What happened on Ditman? Who died there, or lived there, or was robbed there? I could not remember...a sure sign of old age. Well, so much for Ditman.

We finally arrived at Alejandro's house. Please note: If you are ever driving to Alejandro's and it's already dark, all you have to do is follow the big yellow lighted "DIESEL" sign. If it's daytime, you're screwed, so stop and ask for directions. Oh yes, I guess I should tell you the reason for this trip in the first place was to help our loco vato brother and friend, Alejandro, celebrate his 26th birthday, along with 100 other people who had no place to park, much less maneuver two cars down a two inch street at the same time!

At some point there was also cerveza, beer, cerveza and more cerveza. And, did I say beer? Tongues were wagging (literally) and cleavage was aplenty. Betty's, red lips, pomps, and tatts ruled. Ahem...well yes, and there was music too - lots of it, from three different houses all next to each other; each having their individual parties. Yihaaa! What a cultural experience! I think Isaw the ghost of Ceasar Chavez sitting on the old Mustang toasting the crowd. But, I thought to myself, "Damn, I never knew Alejandro had this many friends (and good looking too!). And then, I found out they were not his friends but friends of his lovely girl. He confessed to me that unless he drinks he doesn't talk to anyone much, because that is just the way he is - a rather shy young man. I think they call it deprived, and something in my heart softened, so I gave him a special scapula with a prayer. I told him he must repeat it out loud every day, even in public restrooms.

And, then I knew...YES!! The moral of the story is to get a guy who has no friends -- no social life, no popularity, possibly even self-esteem issues. In general, no LIFE, but a helluva nice guy. Then, you tell him what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. It all made perfect sense. It was like a lightening bolt hit me in the head, and I was suddenly transformed!! I knew that my next sermon to the congregation in Calexico was going to be directed to the women, and I would set them straight, once and for all. It would be the forefront of a new era. Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus, but women rule the roost and the cock crows thrice!

Sadly enough, the clock ticked quickly and suddenly, we heard cock-a-doodle-do. It was time for us to pack up the car La Raza style and say our goodbyes. 10 cervezas rolling around in "Frederico's small trunk". What purpose did it serve?? Vitamin P??? That must have been it, because we beheld a very strange sight on the way home. A woman in a parking lot stepped out of her car and let out a flood large enough to be a major oil leak. There she was...reverse spread eagle, and she was...well, watering the plants in a large way?

Never was this night an ordinary night of `Up in Smoke". It was likened to an alien abduction (beam me up Ricardo) and we laughed loud and nervously as we whipped away into the pale moonlight. We sang the rest of the way home: East LA, it's pretty okay - East LA, it'll make your day - East LA, in the middle of May - yeah, East LA, we got there one day, and did it our way!

A Night at Pike's

Some people might say, "The night is young and so are we." At Pike's (near the corner of 4th and Cherry in Long Beach) you get some of this and some of that, and a whole lot more. Ms. Howdylicious Wanda from KUCI's Howdylicious radio show (88.9 fm)and DJ Dan from the Dynotones (who will have new and soon to be released CD) have ventured to the beach area recently with some good down home country music. Every Monday at Pike's you'll find a variety of people sitting around the bar eating everything from mahi tacos to veggie burgers, drinking a brew, or hard lemonade, and listening to everything from Johnny Cash to Patsy Cline, and even some International tunes. I've been to the first two Monday night blast offs, and it's going well. Many friends and new acquaintances are coming by to pay homage to the dueling DJ duo. It's a fun time and what better way to spend a Monday night. Are you going to sit home and watch Jeopardy? Get out and meet some new people! Monday night we learned some lessons about life when Sgt. Al decided to share his wisdom. These are known as Al-isms, or the world according to Al.

1. Life's not fair and neither is Al.
2. I don't give a damn about the truth, tell me lies that make me feel good.
3. Mean and sneaky beats mean and tough every damn day of the week.
4. Wrapped around every silver lining is a dark ass cloud.
5. Bad things happen to good people all the time. I prefer to be the bad thing, rather than the good person.

So, friends with that in mind, get on out to Pike's on Monday nights and come say Hello! You won't be sorry you did!!!
Remember, 8-Midnight, and have a Bud Light...

Turning Japanese with Dan Dynotone

japan2003.jpg

Every year, DJ Dan goes to Japan to visit friends and extended family. This year, I asked him to be our Barflies.net correspondent:

"Everybody always asks me what I do every time I visit Japan. This being my 5th visit, I decided to make an effort to write down as much as I could of the things I did when I was there this time.

Here are some of the highlights of this trip:

December 25th - Exchanging Christmas gifts with my Japanese friends. I never thought this would ever happen, completely blew my mind. Who says you canít have Christmas in Japan?

December 26th - Ratholic at Gabi Gabi in Harajuku. Ratholic is an instrumental Surf band from Yokohama featuring all girls except for the guitar player. The girls wore matching dresses and we gave the guitar player a hard time for not having a matching dress. They played a mix of originals and covers. They had a perfect sound with keyboards, and saxophone to round it all out. This was an all night event and they went on at 12:30pm. The place was a small pub owned by the singer on the Japanese Rockabilly band The Rizlas. The Heineken on tap was good, but it cost 900 yen, which is about 9 dollars per glass! We didnít stay for the other bands; we were told that they werenít very good, so we left early. On the way home it snowed!

December 30th - ďGarage Rockin CrazeĒ, Shinjuku Loft. This was another all night event that started at 12am. We arrived at 12am and the first band Jet Boys started around 12:30. Jet Boys were a punk rock trio with a 40 year old singer/guitar player who gets completely naked when he performs. Thankfully they only played 4 songs. Then there was Taka who used to play keyboards for the surf band Jackie & the Cedrics. I had no idea he was a DJ as well as an excellent keyboard player. He did an amazing DJ set full of scratching his records, doing hand stands on top of his keyboards, and proceeded to light his keyboards on fire at the end of his set! Next were the 5,6,7,8ís, this show was to feature the original line up from the early 80ís. They just came out with a new CD of material from this line up, so they were only going to do a couple of shows to promote the CD. I was quite surprised when they hit the stage wearing 80ís clothing and whipped cream all over their faces. Their set was about 25 minutes long with them doing a very rocking version of the Go Goís ďWe Got The BeatĒ. I love this band, check out their performance in Quentin Tarantinoís latest movie ďKill Bill Vol. 1. The best band of the evening was the Young Parisians. A Japanese glam band with every member of the band dressed up in glam garb. They looked absolutely fantastic, and they sounded great! I was a bit disappointed that they only played 7 songs, but ended with ďAll The Young DudesĒ. After their set, we decided to leave at 4am. We wanted to see our friends Jackie and Enocky play, but they were scheduled to go around 6:30 and there were 3 other bands scheduled before their set. It was a great show even though we left a few hours early.

January 3 - This was my last day in Japan. I started the day by meeting my friends at Buddyís store at 10:30 am. Our first stop was to do some shopping at Costco which is about an hours drive by car. We took 3 cars, and I got to ride in Enockyís van with him and Jun. I canít tell how weird it was listening to Buck Owens ďLive in JapanĒ CD while riding in the car. We all took turns being the DJ in the car. Who would have guessed that Van Halenís first album would be the hit of the day! Afterwards we went to a record store that was having a half off sale on used CDís. We all walked out of there with a couple of CDís each, and didnít pay more than a 1,000 yen! Now it was time for dinner, and do my friends like to eat. We decided to go out for Korean BBQ were you can cook your food right on the table. While we ate were talking about music, and then we started asking what was the first concert we ever saw. The responses were seeing Miles Davis in a small auditorium, Ted Nugent at Budokan, and the Ramones at a kabuki theatre! Do you see why I keep coming back? It just gets better and better every time I visit.

Here is what an average day is like:

AM - Usually wake up between 5 and 7, depends on the jetlag. I could not get over it the whole time I was there during this visit. Iíll go for a walk around 8am. No stores or shops are open, only convenient stores. There are convenient store like 7-ll, AM-PM, Lawson, and others that are on every block! Around 9am I return home and have breakfast. Usually eat some fruit or bread from one of the local markets. Between 10am and 12pm Iíll either go shopping at the big department store located in the train station that is only a few blocks away or go to one of the local game centers and play video games. I got reacquainted Street Fighter Zero with characters I had never seen before. Once the local kids saw a gaijin (tourist) they would watch me play and give me tips on how to use the special moves. The younger kids know English better than the adults. I wish they had pinball machines in their arcades, but they donít in the Kokubunji area.

PM - Most shops and small stores are open for business at 12pm. There are 4 small record stores nearby where I am staying. One record store is right next door! Since I canít read kanji I have to literally go through everything. Most of the stores are categorized by Rock, Jazz, Blues, and Japanese Pops. You wonít find Bob Dylan under ďDĒ, itís under ďBĒ. After awhile you catch on as to how they alphabetize. Iíll spend 2 or 3 hours easy looking at records and CDís, afterwards Iíll go home and have lunch or eat out somewhere with the wife and mother-in-law. Maybe Iíll take a nap in the mid afternoon for a couple of hours or go to Rat Motor Beat. Rat Motor Beat is a vintage store my friends Buddy and Misuzu have in Kokubunji; itís on the other side of the train station where Iím staying. Itís only a 5 minute walk to get there. While Iím there we will listen to music and talk in English and Japanese. Buddy plays in a band called Charlie & the Hot Wheels. They sound like the Ramones meet the Beach Boys. I saw them play last year and they really kick ass! He always takes me to shows and gets us on the guest list. He and his wife are the best tour guides ever! Heíll close his shop around 8pm and weíll either go out to dinner or Iíll meet up with him later to go to a concert. If I go home for dinner, weíll usually pick up something from a local shop and eat at home. It can be a lot cheaper this way. Not much to do after dinner except watch t.v.or listen to music. Watching t.v. with the sound off and playing Japanese sixties tunes is one of the things I like to do at home. The weather this trip was perfect, it didnít rain at all the whole time there. Everyday was sunny and the temperatures were around 60 degrees!

Sausage Festival!

Ok, Ladies, I am paging all the Ladies... or Women... or Chicks... or Girls....

The last four or five times I have been to the Doll Hut it has been a Sausage Festival. Yep, men everywhere. At least 6 - 9 men to every woman. Punk rock night, rockabilly, surf, DJ night, psychobilly, whatever the music playing. Men everywhere. Punk rock boys, greaser boys, Butterheads, cholos, skins, even a few normal type males looking a bit out of place...

If you are single and female, the Doll Hut is the place to be. As Wanda likes to say, "The odds are good, but the goods are odd."

The Odds are Good...

For all the single ladies out there... turns out California is the right place to be to meet men, since men outnumber women here in SoCal over any other place. It's like I always say... the odds are good but the goods are odd!

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21 ó Go West young woman, especially if youíre single and looking for love. And if youíre serious about seeking a male mate, go to Orange County or Silicon Valley ó two areas with cities where, in an unusual twist, single men outnumber single women."

Read the full story.

Another excerpt:
"The other four California cities were immigrant magnets ó Santa Ana, Salinas, Oxnard and Costa Mesa ó which naturally attract male laborers, many of them single, foreign-born Hispanics."

Johnny Cash Died 9/12/03

"Cash once credited his mother, Carrie Rivers Cash, with encouraging him to pursue a singing career.

'My mother told me to keep on singing, and that kept me working through the cotton fields. She said God has his hand on you. You'll be singing for the world someday.' "

Thank God he did. Rest in peace, Johnny.
