Doing Stuff

1. I wrote a piece about the most notable guest appearances in Friday the 13th films over at Starpulse.

2. At The Liar's Club, I posted something about those court ordered breathalizer things that people have to use to start their cars.



3. Any minute now, I hope, my review of Mercury Rev's new record should go live over at Staythirstymedia.com.

4. Yesterday my partner and I booked our play and will perform it at The Gorilla Tango Theater here in Chicago on January 9th and 10th.

5. Last night I brought the house down with a killer karaoke version of Cold as Ice* by Foreigner.

6. I've been a busy boy, for sure, but I'm most proud of point number 5.

*The play we are writing has a karaoke theme, so we were intent on singing a song to celebrate booking the theater today. It wasn't looking good as the closing hour was approaching. Then, I got bumped up the list for picking up and gathering up the contents of the MC's tip jar, which she didn't know fell and contained numerous twenties. We nailed that song. The best part was when a buddy of mine was rocking the guitar solo and I was doing the break down with my back against his. That's an oldy but a goody rock maneuver if I ever saw one.

I heard on the radio that some guy had an air compressor in his car that he used for work. He would blow air into a balloon and then put the balloon on the BAAID device to start his car. Problem is, if you are caught tampering with one of those devices the penalties are pretty severe.

Zibbsy: I try.

Polk: A little Foreigner never hurt anybody. A lot of Foreigner can be fatal.

Chud: Either way, it's an awesome move. I recommend it the next time you're playing the Rock Band video game or something.

Heff: Well, there are two of them, so that maneuver suits them well.

Jov: The commonality is awesomeness if I had to guess.

Sista: Hilarious! That's so much LESS rocks star than Steven Tyler filling up balloons of urine and taping them to his leg to beat his drug tests. Actually, both scenarios are kind of pathetic, I suppose.

A play with a karaoke theme? That sounds FABULOUS! Does it feature Foreigner? Because if so, I think you have a surefire hit on your hands.

Great StarPulse article! Well done!

Zen:The play isn't a hit yet. Not yet.

Seq: Not sure if Foreigner will be in there, but there will be some bomb performances by some friends willing to make asses of themselves.

Niner: Thanks, bud! Always good to get propers from a bud like that.
