happy mardi gras y'all.

calling all geeks, freaks and nerd wannabees 


dorkbot is a monthly meeting of artists (sound/image/movement/whatever) who are involved in the creative use of electricity. last dorkbot i went to a dude spoke about how he implanted a chip in his hand so he didn't need keys to get in his house, he would just swipe his hand to gain access. then he taught us how to do the same. it was all very DIY gattaca style. this month isn't as sci-fi, there is an tapping egg machine that creates music and a few little robots will put on a play. all free.

too much rock for one hand 

anyone see the scrubs episode a couple weeks ago about the air band? genius.
well perhaps this will refresh your memory / make you wanna dust off the ole bell biv devoe CD:
WATCH turk audition for "air singer"
with only the best, most dixie-requested song ever. now ya know.



HELLO
AIR GUITAR
u.s. regional championship

@ knitting factory this THURSDAY
$10 advance / $15 at the door

you know you wanna. more details from flavorpill: Dust off your air axe and find yourself some hairspray. Tonight's 2006 Air Guitar Regional champ will get the chance to challenge other regional winners in June and, perhaps, topple their international competitors in Oulu, Finland in late August. Aireoke contestants faux-shred for 60 righteous seconds over a song of their choosing, with the top performers advancing to perform a "surprise compulsory song."

also, air guitar nation, a feature-length documentary about "america's unofficial pastime" will premiere at this year's sxsw film festival march 12.



and in full air guitar disclosure, when i was a kid we used to go to the local mall to watch all the contests. loved it. i believe at least once my brother competed as nikki six. in full costume and makeup. get a mental picture. he will probably deny it if you ask him. i can't remember what motley crue gem he "played" - i only remember the kid who did angus from AC/DC. he was hot.

i wish i was a pony 



gosh darn it

well loi krathong is the superbowl of thailand 

proving people are the same everywhere you go...
just some squirrels trying get their nuts.










march madness 

just, you know, a quick rundown.
there's one, two, a few coupla bands coming this way.

my music calendar:


#1 yes i'm a huge nerd. and #2 i only get my life organized for music. if you asked to see a calendar for anything else, like, say, work, you'd be out of luck. as will my tax guy.

march is an especially insane month for concerts here thanks to bands stopping off on their way to or from austin. and see those days that are just full of orange dots... that's sxsw.

brokeback jokes are kinda played out 

but this video is pretty funny.

OVER THE TOP!! 

alright you noodle-armed sissies! this post ain't for the weaklings (kinda like 'guts'. anyway, it's best to read this post to yourself using a WWF voice)! saturday night was ladies arm wrestling night at a bar called soft spot! but that night, the only thing soft was the name!!!! it's about 4 blocks from eve's apartment, so after doing some warm-ups, and taking a pre-fight nap on the couch (nate), we headed over at 8 sharp for the MAIN EVENT!!!

'eve of destruction' and 'the social drinker' are seen here saying "WE'RE GONNA BREAK YOU!!"


the competition was fierce. and this is just the ref!!


the 'eve of destruction' went first. WHO'S NEXT, BITCHES!?!?


'la china loca' ANNIHILATED 'the specialist' in the next round!!!


the fans were thrilled, and couldn't wait to see who advanced!


she came, she saw, she succumbed to THE HYDRAULIC PRESS!!! um...who also happens to be a frickin' construction worker...


for the championship, it came down to 'la china loca', and 'the hydraulic press'. IT'S PAIN TIME!!


'la china loca' ended up winning a tough bout. but after some thought, i realized, that in the end, it doesn't really matter who won or lost, all that matters is....THE SHOCKER!!!! YEAH!!!

my week. *lovey dovey edition* 

tuesday was valentine's day. this prehistoric frog at the museum of natural history asked eve, "would you be my......lunch?"


this guy was lonely on valentine's day, so he was reduced to pearl diving. some of you may get that joke, some of you may not...


drrrty, i found someone that beat your high score in that seal clubbing game. ladies and gentelmen, the winner, and STILL champion...


yes dear...? my deer could kick your deer's ass.


on saturday, we went to the elton john fan club museum, otherwise known as the met.


and they've recently installed a gay porn exhibit. it made me blush, and i don't know how that little kid got in there. i think that one guys is looking for a towel...boy, my week is really trying to appeal to the masses today, huh?


um...moving on. saturday night things got heated up. eve entered in an all-female arm wrestling tournament. all eyes were on the prize. and nametags. there are some real winners. my personal faves: the cow puncher, sleazy bake oven, and home wrecker. but my very favorite? eve of destruction. you guys are in for a treat. a post dedicated entirely to the contest. stay tuned...


and no, nate. you can't play.
