John Barleycorn beckons that the Harvest season begins now. Have a blessed Lughnasadh! Time to celebrate the harvest and the good things in life. The (corn)King is dead! Long live the King!
This past weekend, mutants and SubGenii came from far and wide, gathered together and awaited XDAY – THE DAY THE WORLD ENDS AND THE UFOS COME TO SAVE US!
Every XDAY from 1 XDAY to 12 XDAY has been a total letdown, as the world is still here and every SubGenius is not aboard Nirvana-filled pleasure UFO saucers, filled with SEX GODDESSES and everything else you could ever want, dream of, or imagine.
Why would anyone have hope that 13 XDAY would be any different and we wouldn’t be let down again? Because Bob said so, that’s why.
13 XDAY or XIII XDAY was on July 5th, 2010 and guess what? What happened?
NOTHING!! The world is still here and no UFO saviors, as Bob promised!! No SEX GODDESSES!!! WTF?
But, rejoice! Ye, the workings of Bob are strange and mysterious! There is no need for upset! Bob is a fickle one, and X-DAY will come to pass one…XDAY soon. As the living avatar of slack, can we expect anything less from Bob?
The Church of the SubGenius spreads the word of Bob across the globe like oil from an underwater Volcano: thick, gooey and hot!
I’ll be keeping my eyes on the skies until next XDAY!
Today is the first day of Summer…the Summer Solstice – the Sun at the height of its power for the year (in the northern hemisphere).
What’s the Summer Solstice? For those who don’t know, today is the day with the longest time of daylight: the longest day of the year! Today is the day when the sun is the highest in the sky, in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, welcome Winter!
From here on in, the days are getting shorter for us northerners, while you southerners will notice your days getting longer.
There are equal amounts of light and darkness today. Then, the light continues to build; the return of Spring!
Welcome the return of Spring!

This week has been busy with me attending Music Week. I’ve shot some great new video and heard some great music. And, I’ve met some new friends and old, made business connections and gotten inspiration.
I’ve been adding posts about CMW over at my Rockin’ Films blog. Check it out at RockinFilms.com/blog.htm
Last night was a lot of fun, seeing a few bands that I’d never heard before, in venues that were familiar. I took in clubs that were right across the street from each other: The Hideout and Tattoo Rock Parlour. Then, I went down the street a bit to the Cadillac Lounge. I’ll have some video online shortly from the first of four nights! We’ll see how many I make it out to!
Bands I saw: Abandon All Ships, The Rebellion, Good And Broken, TV Heart Attack, PUMPS, The Cringe, Tin Star Orphans, Eddie Orso.
