KFC is gone Good and Bad

So as I'm sure a lot of you know the KFC on Elmwood has been closed for some time. I will admit I didn't eat there very often. There are a few reasons for that.
1. KFC has been known to abuse there chickens in the process somehow
2. I eat a lot of bad food but KFC sometimes you eat it and you can feel your heart working overtime that stuff is really bad for you
3. KFC smells so good that when you walk past it, you or atleast I, Can taste it in my mouth, since I can taste it why buy it
4. I Called it KFC before the brand used that name, I use the name becuase saying Kentucky Fried Chicken is to long, they changed to KFC so people would froget it is fried, that pissed me off. Just be Honest about it.

I heard they closed for two reasons one was some kind of sewage problem that wasn't really their fault. I think they also had a rodent problem but that was after that.

This not I'm here to bash KFC and the bad ellement it brought to that corner, that once it closed was no longer around. I am a fan of the KFC/Taco Bell/Pizza Hut brand they used to be Partners with Pepsi who owns Sobe and Fritolay but not sure if they are. In fact when they had the big Star Wars Episode promotions I got some cups at that KFC. In Fact I was Hoping that KFC would get Turned into a Taco Bell but it didn't. I forget what it will become but here are a few pictures that I took on my way to see Ninja Assasin (Very good think it is based on the Animee of the same name).

Sabres VS. Flames

I've been so behind in posting with stuff going on and work that some how I never got to The Sabres pictures on here. If you see the pictures you may notice that my view is the same as the last game I went to. I guress if I got my mini pack when I should have my seats might be different but for me at least they are the same for each game. I kinda like to move around and get different views but that is ok to be in the same spot, I mean I am for the Bandits games.

Well I guess that is enough photos from warm ups. The thing I like so much about warmups is you get to see both Goalies and sometimes even all 3 plus you have all the players on the ice.

I like that they put the fights up on the Junbotron. Sometimes you can't see it from where you are, One of the fights was like this. Where it was right on the boards on my side it was tough to see it. I think this was the best game I've seen in a long time. Yes it is ironic that the sabres are playing right now so I don't get to see it.

Well assuming anyone is reading this, this is something you won't hear me say or read me write. I'm tired of uploading pictures so I guess I'll jump over the rest of the second and 3rd peroid right into overtime. Well no one scored so it went to a shot out and Buffalo won. I think one reason why I'm not as into it as I would be sometimes is that it is like from 2 weeks ago. So here are some of those shots.

Well so once I got Home I watched Sons Of Anarchy, great show it really is and took some pictures and they had a preview for Avatar. Visualy it will be amazing and storywise and action wise it looks pretty cool to. Since this event I have seen a South Park episode that breaks on the movie a little bit "Dancing With The Smurfs" or something it was a great episode.

Well for anyone who made it all the way through and didn't see enough Sabres Pictures they are all on my webshots page.

Allso for anyone going out tonight I hope it is a great time. Hope everyone has a great thanksgiving, think mine is going to be lame. I just wish I had NFL networki so I could watch all 3 games. To me that is what it is really about just eating and watching football, yeah something is wrong with me but that is ok. That being said I think that is true of many people. I wonder if there is anyplace where you can like buy 1/2 pound turkey (cut like it would be at dinner) 2 huge pieces of Pie, Mashed, Crannberry sausce enough for like 3 people . I think there would be a market for it then you can eat and watch football and be Happy. Also hope everyone enjoys the long weekend and for those that are brave have a safe and fun Black Friday.

Today(movies) and Wendsday(shonen).

I went to see two movies today. The first was Twilight. I liked it but had a big problem with it, way to much love story Vs. Action. I think what makes a Vampire movie good is the vampires and action and suspense, and yes a love story. But see the love story need to part of the story. The movie shouldn't be a love story and then there is this conflict and the conflict between the people is that one is a Vampire and one is a Warewolf. I can't say much with out giving stuff away but if you stay till the end you get to find out kinda when the next movie is coming out and the name. My other problem with the movie is that as good as the previews are it gave away a lot of the story, not all of it or the ending but It still gave away to much. That being said I had a good time and it was shocking to see so many people at an 11am showing, this movie is bringing a lot of people out to the show and that is a good thing. The 2nd movie I saw was "Law Abiding Citizen". I will admit it was a bit violent and a bit distrubing, but over all it was pretty good. It wasn't only action it had a story and was about Justice, It kinda reminded me of The Punisher, not the newest and not the first but the middle movie (thought that middle one was pretty sweet).

On Wendsday I went out to Mohawk Place, yes it was the 1st time I have ever been there to see this band from Japan (are they from Japan if they are singed to Good Charmel records and are doing a US tour?) Called Shonen Knife. I only knew a few of their songs but them and all the opening bands where pretty good.

Agent me was good:


image

image

image

image

image

I don't know the Name of this Next band (maybe Tony does):



image

image

image

image

image

This band here was interseting the guy has an acustic guitar and would Joke about like how that doesn't mean the song has to be sad. Oh yeah and the chick could play and was kinda cute to. They where a good time.

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

Towards the end Of Shonen Knife I ran into some I knew taking pictures that was interesting and there where these two pretty chicks dancing near me not sure why I didn't say hey lets look like we know each other and get a picture, Kidding we where there to see the show not talk through it. It was a great time here are some pictures of Shonen Knife.

Just Dawned on me I still haven't done my Sabres Post, man I need more time. Well hope someone liked these shots. If that for some reason that wasn't enough I have more of Shonen on my webshots page but only of them not the other bands. It was a great time. On a side note not sure how many pictures I have here on (e:strip) but this sould break the 12,000 mark.

How To Legalize Gay Marriage

So for those that don't know I think Gay, Plural, and Interacial Marriage is fine and they should all be legal. The Fact is that marriage is supposed to be about love and commitment but it is also a legal contract that gives all kinds of different rights to people. On to the Plural thing real quick. I don't just mean that one man can have 2 wives as a way to have multiple partners or child brides. I think that as long as a relationship works then it should be legal.

The Term Gay Marriage needs to be changed and allways used as Same Sex Marriage.
-Their are some people who support gay marriage and some people who think it is wrong and evil. Then there are that other group of people who don't care to much either way and don't want to know about it. The problem is that I think that using "GAY" and making it all about civil rights gets those people upset and will get them to Join the in on the anti gay marraige movement.
-Yes most people who would get married would be gay. But the problem is if it is only for gays then what about strights people who are the same sex? Those people should be included also. Two Examples
1. How about Women who are old and have lost their husbands many years ago and are best friends or maybe even living together. These two are companions but not sexual with each other. Now if they could get married they would be more capable of taking care of each other. (This would also be true of men think of the old guys on the muppet show).
2. Have you ever seen those two girls who are best friends and you wonder those two sure seem close I wonder if they are into each other. Or the sterotype of the gay boy and gay girl who are best friends. Well these two people never meet the person of their dreams. Well know they could be married (so the guy and girl could be but now it might be more excepted) and get rights that they could only get through marriage. Some of these rights are really things that tie into work like being covered on Health insurance and the like.


Something I mentioned above about how there are some people who think gay marriage is wrong and those people all ways will. People need to understand that , that is true. There are people who will allways think that it is wrong. You can't change those peoples minds. Because of that doing things that piss them off might do more harm then good. Don't try to convert them all that does is make them protest more and get more people to Join there side.

I left what I think would work the best till last. Same Sex Marriage needs some great advertising people to sell it. They need math people as well, they need Buisness people also. Most companies in this country do most of what they do for money and profit. Yes they also do give to things like Toys For Tots or other community efforts. Not sure if they do that to be good, or they know it is great free press. If someone is going to go Target or Kmart I know Target gives back to the community. Do I want to order from Amazon or Bestbuy, oh thats right when at best buy I could give to toys for teens or what ever there program is. I will admit that I don't know why what companies do what, but I'm sure giving does help there bottom line.

That leads to next part of my point. Big companies have a lot of lobbyists and try to get laws passed that help them. Some people would say that they are the ones running the country. That is why Activists need to work on those companies. If you had people reserach and do what ever they do with pie charts and studies and showed that Same Sex Marriage would encrease sales by say 10% a year those companies would quietly put pressure on people to change the laws. Of course someone else might have to come in and say it would cost this much to get this to happen and then you would make this much more. I don't just mean go to Target and wal-mart and I don't mean the same people either. The Same group of 10 people would make it seem like a sell or a shell game. Then of course people would do the same thing with anyone in the wedding industry. How about the people who supply wedding cake places, in every city the local places or national chains where wedding receptions are held, or Hotels where people stay, The Card industry. Weddings are a big business and lots of people make lots of money on them. If all or most of these companies couled be conviced that Same Sex Marriage would have more weddings each year and that would mean more money for them, then they would invest it to try and get laws changed. And if that isn't enough the next step would be the Baby industry, but that is a much harder sell.

Weber Wedding Reception

So for those who read my posts you may remember that after Timika & Rory's wedding I posted pictures. I wasn't sure about the wedding reception shots though and I'm still not. Getting pictures in there was tough. First of all finding a setting that worked good in one spot didn't mean it worked good in another. You have these small lights and then it is dark. The other tough part is that on that floor and maybe others there is out side lighting and that shines through the windows. If that light outside is in the background the camera kinda focuses on that or uses that as the light source or somehting like that. So then I would try to use backlight settings and that didn't really work. I forgot I was supposed to finish up posting pictures from that and then remembered that once (e:Ladycroft) left me a comment. So we shall see how these look picking up from where I left off last time.

Metallica Was Amazing

So On Tuesday I went to see Metallica. In some ways it turned out to be strange the entire exprence really was but also very good. I took the day off of work (if you are reading this thanks boss) and slept in. I went down to the Arena early so that I could find out about taking pictures. So I turned out Cameras where allowed. Yes around 4pm there was a small line. So I go over to Benchwarmers. They are having like a preshow thing there. No tables where free so I left. It is really a cool place. Looking back I was an Idiot, I should have ate at the bar, well I assume you could have tobad I didn't think of that then. If I would have done that, then when I bought merch I wouldn't have worried about spilling food and I would have it all, and my next day wouldn't have been ruined. When that Happened I was so pissed.
1. At my self for not paying more attenion
2. At my self for not just thinking to put my gear on
3. At who ever the no good dirty fucking low as snake in the grass fucking fake ass Metallica fan who would do something that low
4. Anyone in my section who saw the miss dead and didn't say anything to that ass fuck (assuming they knew and saw).

Well after not eating at benchwarmers I made a decesion that seemed good at the time but maybe based on what happened wasn't. I decide to just get in line and wait. Maybe I could have ate at pearl st. I forgot about them but everyplace else seemed so far from the arena that I figured just wait in line. When I walked in it was odd to be in so soon I got to the merch area and I was the only one there some of the prices whern't up yet. I should have taken that as a sign to eat everything then get merch then go to my seat. At the time it blew me away I'm used to having a big line in front of me.

Band wise Volbeat was pretty good and Lamb Of God was pretty good to. Could understand is talk but not his singing I just figured that is how he sings. Metallica was amazing. Well here are some pictures from the show. I'm just going to put up the Metallica Pictures.

Well if you didn't get enough Pictures you can allways go to my webshots page. Also there is a site called livemettalica that I haven't checked out yet where you can download any show they do, for a fee not sure how much. I May have to do the Buffalo show but we shall see. I thought they did a pretty good set list and mixed in old and New I just wish they also played Welcome Home (Sanitaruim) and For Whom the Bells Toll, but It was a great time even with the loss of my stuff. I guess that should teach me to either not buy stuff, pay more attention, don't be so picture obbessed, all ways put on what you buy or a combo of things, I know the next time a go to something I'm putting my stuff on like how I do. Hey I thought San Fran shirt and Jacket I match it matches the band and was feeling way to good about my self maybe that is the lesson to be learned.

Metallica

So I'm pretty Pumped up to go see Metallica tonight. I love all their music. They Put on a pretty good live show. I want to see Lamb Of God who is one of the openers. Yes some people do the tailgate thing and pump music before the show. That would be a great thing to do if I had a car. I want to take pictures but not sure if they still do the camera check no camera thing so I'm going early and hopefully I can find out either way, and if no Cameras then take it back home. I'm posting now since I have a day off. It felt so good to sleep in. We shall see what to do about eating based on if I have to come back home or not. In any event it should be a great time. Hopefully I will have pictures to post soon. That assumes they don't sue me we shall see what happens. Yes is the answer to the question are they my favorite band. Also love the old and the new stuff and even the in the middle stuff (like um load and reload).

Yesterday was a day of 1st's

First of all for those who read previous posts It was the first time I saw a Disney 3D movie. I have seen 3D before but it was oh so long ago with one red and one blue side of the glasses.

(e:Theecarey) Had a great idea of going out and I'm glad I did. In terms of (e:peeps) there was (e:Jim) , (e:James) , (e:Mrmike), (e:Vincent) , (e:terry), (e:Paul), (e:Matthew), (e:Mike) and (e:Libertad) and then a few more people also. The Food later on and drinks and everything was a great time and it was great to see everyone out, that should be done more often. I had to start with a Strawberry Banana Martini it was very tasty and then (e:Theecarey)'s "Dirty Navel" looked so tasty and it was kinda chocolate taste to it.

It was the first (e:strip) event that I didn't really document. It was dark and such and didn't want to blind anyone. Here is the take on the bars.

Fugazi get a bigger sign then just a billboard out front I missed it. But maybe that is the point that you have to know where it is so no one goes in to the wrong place by mistake. Great tasting drinks by the way. I love the wood inside it makes it feel like an old time bar you would see in a movie or something. It would be great to film a vampire movie there just where the lights where add candles it looks like those used to be gas lights at one time.

Cathoderey : I don't get the entire buy a drink then get a chip for another free thing, thanks to the person who explained it to me. Well I guess it is a way to handle money less and if you don't want to buy someone a drink you can hand them the chip. Love the huge TV in the Sabres area wish I had a TV like that.

Frizzy's awesome lots of gorgeous ladies, plus they have bubble hockey, I need to go back there sometime again.

Thanks to all it was a great night

(3rd post) Wedding Reception

First of all anyone who has read or looked at my pictures feel free to take them and post them on your site or your page or your facebook. I haven't put any really up there for 2 reasons. Facebook is more about someone presenting a certain picture of them selves often, I don't mean that in a bad way. So I didn't want to post any pictures up there that someone might not like of them selves. The other issue was I wasn't sure of the quality issue. Maybe those two are really one issue. But in facebook I wouldn't want to put a picture up that looks dark on someone's page. I think all of these pictures are going to look odd but some of them came out pretty good printed so on here I'm going to kinda guess and see what we get.

Pain For Pleasure (2nd of day)

First of all this is not in music because the Band Pain for Pleasure isn't what I'm talking about. For those that don't know they are the alter ego's of the band Sum 41.

I'm not going to sit here and say I love pain, that would be a lie. Lots of pain like most people I hate. But that being said there is some that feels pretty good in the right amount. Me being a whimp it isn't a lot. Not going to say what I like and don't like again a lot of that is biased on what and how what is done. I'm also not going to lie and say "I'm In The life Style" Or "I'm In the Scene" that wouldn't be true either.

From what I understand a lot of the really fun stuff all has some kind of restrenat or tie up aspect to it. Yes that is pretty hot to see. But I have lots of trust issues. As much fun as it would be to go to some bar and tell some chick "hey you look pretty hot why don't you tie me to your bed and use me for what ever you want". First of all that wouldn't be safe when she forgets to mention the boy friend or that she is behind on the rent, HA. Second I don't even have enough of that trust for someone I kinda know I don't think.

This post sounded better in my head. What got me thinking about this was this morning I remembered that Dark Parties is coming to Club Diablo on Thanksgiving Eve. I missed them the last time they where here but I want to make sure I go this time. At the very least I can have a few and get a little shit faced (I don't mean fecalphalie aka shit play, not sure what it is and don't want to find out, gross). I'm still not sure how the day before thanksgiving got turned into a giant drinking holiday, you would think you don't want to be hung over on thanksgiving but maybe people drink a lot that day also so they don't notice it.

I some how feel that I didn't say what I want to but not sure where I went off the mark, hope everyone has had and continues to have a great weekend.
