Weight Watchers week two

I lost point 2 (almost half a pound) this week. Why? No exercise... I stayed busy with work, but never got outside. The week before I lost 6 pounds. For week 3 I'm shooting for another 6 pounds. Slow and steady is the plan... It's not too bad of a plan.
I'm thinking lean and mean.

My favorite KISS outfits....

KISS got new outfits for this tour. This video shows they clearly stole clothing from their grandmothers as well as their moms. Not much footage from these days... I think they are trying to erase this time.

Interview with Casey Kasem... ace and eric explain the elder concept (I still don't get it)

I've heard them both now.. Both are great!

The new ace cd came out this week, and I've heard the new KISS cd (which I have pre ordered from wal mart, and I'll probably buy the vinyl if it comes out too...) It is as good as they said. All the tracks are great, and I really like Eric and Tommy's tracks. I think my favorite was Eric's song. I can't wait to hold my copy in my hands. Ace's cd is has some new sounds for ace, but it kicks ass too. Good time to be a KISS fan!

Rocket Boat, Long Beach, Last Night....

Sometimes I feel that those who have passed on provide healing moments in life. Like they let us know they are still with us. These times for me are usually at Mike Watt gigs for me, as my uncle who has passed was a big fan of, and of course D.BOON's spirit is at every Watt gig. I talked with Larry who had lost a grandmother that day. I lost my grandma Peg last year. It made me think of how short life is, and how great these people, most of whom were my friends really are.
The night was so perfect. The bands were great. Paloma's new band (I did not catch their name...) they were great! Kind of spy/surf sounding. Toys that kill I always miss for some reason, and finally got the chance to see them, and talk to most of them, and even talked to one of their mom's who told me she was a fan of my art! (wow! that made my night!).
Watt, Rawl, and Tom were great as usual, lots of Minutemen, Wire, Roky Erickson and Stooges tunes. The best moment was when watt connected at the end when he slowed things down (as he stated) with one guitar, one drum, one bass...

I felt a lot of love on that boat. I talked to Craig about how I felt about the Rise and Fall (fanzine). You folks should know that guy really does everything he can to get that zine to be the best. That zine gives all of us pedro dudes a voice (thanks, Craig!). Aaron White is another close friend there. We are getting to be like the clayton brothers, it just a matter of time before we start collaborating on the same canvases. It's good to have him in my life. Rawl and Kevin gave me hugs. I kept thinking of the scene form lord of the rings (cartoon version) where gandalf and frodo sail off on that boat at he end into infinity. The water was so calm, and the air was so perfect as the boat circled the harbor, I watched the lights. These are those friends for me. These are the friends of my lifetime who I cry with, share joy, and often celebrate life with. These friend constantly inspire me to be the best I can. I am greatful for them, and last night. One I'll never forget

Taking Action on my Bad Ways...

I rolled into weight watcher's yesterday and signed up for the long haul. Drop 100 lbs. in one year? We'll see. I have gained and lost so many times. This one has to take for good. The fact that the day was 09-09-09 I'm taking that as a good omen. I look forward to riding my bike again (a blood red GT mountian bike, needs new innertubes and a tune up, 22 speeds). If I can do it you can too... special deal for sign up now too... go do it.

Ace Album Leak

Today the new Ace Frehley album Anomaly was leaked HERE. What a great record! Not what I was expecting. I really liked the song Gehngis Kahn which is mostly an instrumental like several of the tracks included, but that's good as it turns out. It's kind of mellow in places too... it put me in a relaxed mood. You can tell he put his heart in this one. I pre ordered mine last week, can't wait to get it.
