better late than never, right? and really, in my book, everyday should be earth day. i’m sure there is another world out there, similar to what we call home, but, unless space travel becomes readily available to the public, i’m not going to bet on being able to find another earth to put my home on. so, lets be good to our mother. cultivate her, tend her, explore her & honor her. just as our human mamas birthed us, she […]
Admittedly, I didn’t do any SX sanctioned events or shows. I guess that is a bit of a testament to my age. Or maybe it was due to the fact I started a 21 day cleanse on Thursday, and was zapped of any sort of resemblance of energy those first couple of days. I did, however, participate in two incredible events – Rockabilly vs Punk 5 on Monday night at Flamingo Cantina (3/16) and the whyweloveaustin.com party on Wednesday afternoon at […]

I found out a couple of days ago that my friend, Amanda, is participating in the Houston to Austin MS 150. For those of you not familiar with this event… there are participants that ride their bikes (bicycles, by the way) for 160-180 miles. In this particular event, from Houston to Austin. I’ll let you think about that for a minute while you take a look at Amanda riding last Spring in Spain, All of this is to raise awareness and […]
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Plans or not, you should take your sweetheart (or just bring yourself, or meet your friends) to the Gypsy Lounge for an 80’s Punk Prom (because why not?), with The Stummies headlining (if you’ve never heard The Stummies, get yourself to the Gypsy. You’ll have an incredible time, dancing your ass off and singing along to all your favorite songs. I promise they’ll be your new old favorite band). Bands, dancing, photo booth, […]

Drew Edwards of Halloween Man Productions is making me write this. I don’t know if I should be grateful (seeing as how I have could have birthed a baby in the time I last wrote. I didn’t, mind you… if that was the case, I shouldn’t have been drinking Lone Stars last night), or begrudging, simply because it has been 9mos since I’ve written. Grateful vs. Begrudging as it may, I owe last night’s festivities a proper salute. If you […]

If you did not attend Halloween Man presents Punk Rock vs Rockabilly 2… you missed out. Host with the Most, Drew Edwards (aka Halloween Man) MCed the melodic throw-down at Flamingo Cantina. The crowd was a mix of punks and pompadours, there to support their respected team. The air was thick with lonestars and whiskey as the rockabillies jump jived and the punks fist pumped the alcohol drenched air. As I sat back and observed the spectacle, I knew in […]
