Bisons Bandits Bday and Easter to

So last night I went out with the family to T.G.I fridays for my mothers birthday and had a good time downtown. When we went in it was raining and it was snowing when we came out. Yeah I'm kinda tired of the snow and cold but hopefully it will be over soon. The snow and wind wound up postponing the Bisons opening day game that I have a ticket to. I may try to go to the double header on friday. That reminds me on Saturday The Bandits play the Arizona Sting at home that will be a fun time. If memory serves me right Grindhouse opens up this weekend and I would like to see that also. Oh that reminds me does anyone know why on Cat house the series they don't show dick? Is it just me or does it seem weird or maybe it is just hard ones they don't show. You can see they are having sex and you know they are but the naked guy they kinda of blur it out. It is HBO after all and it has the highest rating you can get on tv. I also think that it is kinda unfair what if someone is watching it and enjoys seeing cock, weather it be a girl or guy. I assume it is cause they don't want to send the guys away from the show so they only want boobs shown. Or Maybe at some point they will sell the unrated DVDs. I have no idea why that came to mind it had nothing to do with what I was talking about. OH I know because I watched Penn and Teller's Bullshit on showtime that was about wal- mart and they have a series about the remaking of Debbie Does Dallas, again Not sure how graffic or non graffic they get. Well if I don't post again Hope everyone has a great weekend.

I think easter is this sunday, hope for those that celebrate it you have a nice one. That reminds me I saw an add for Buffalo's first Dingus Day parade on the back of Artvoice today. I wonder if it will be real small and how many people will show up to see it. Oh boy now that I'm onto easter I guess I gotta talk about South Park and the nude Jesus. First off all I have heard it said that the statue was anotomicly correct. I disagree for it to be that way we would have to know how long Jesus was and no one does. Why is there so much out cry? Arn't there all sorts of artistic statues that are nude. Today I did get to watch South Park and it was so funny. I will admit sometimes it isn't. Last weeks was a cool take off of 24 that was awesome but not really funny. It was a take off on the DaVinci code but St. Peter was a rabbit and there was a seceret society that protected the seceret it all starts out cause stan wants to know what dying eggs has to do with the lord. I know I found it funny. But what I wonder is how the people who got all upset over the DaVinci code would view it. Cause even though it does bash the movie it does also show how often people do things that have nothing to do with being a good Christian, in the name of the lord.

Ok now I hope everyone has a nice holiday or Holidays I should say and has a great weekend.

Metallica

I have been meaning to go to Metallica.com to see if there is anything new with them. I found out today that they have started recording in the studio for a new CD. They are also having a short tour of Europe. It would be so awesome to not only go to Europe but to go see Metallica there, but that isn't going to happen. I forget the name of the exact tour but basicly it is called sick of the studio. What got me to go there today is an article I read on yahoo about a couple who wants to name there kid Metallica here is the story. I decided to put it in a box in stead of ""

[box] Couple fights to name baby 'Metallica' 1 hour, 4 minutes ago



STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Metallica may be a cool name for a heavy metal band, but a Swedish couple is struggling to convince officials it is also suitable for a baby girl.


Michael and Karolina Tomaro are locked in a court battle with Swedish authorities, which rejected their application to name their six-month-old child after the legendary rock band.

"It suits her," Karolina Tomaro, 27, said Tuesday of the name. "She's decisive and she knows what she wants."

Although little Metallica has already been baptized, the Swedish National Tax Board refused to register the name, saying it was associated with both the rock group and the word "metal."

Tomaro said the official handling the case also called the name "ugly."

The couple was backed by the County Administrative Court in Goteborg, which ruled on March 13 that there was no reason to block the name. It also noted that there already is a woman in Sweden with Metallica as a middle name.

The tax agency appealed to a higher court, frustrating the family's foreign travel plans.

"We've had to cancel trips and can't get anywhere because we can't get her a passport without an approved name," Tomaro said.

[/box]

The Part I find strange is that a Government decides if a name is ok or not, if I understand that correctly. In this country we can name our kid Aquafina if we want or I have heard a rumor that there is a little girl out there named after an STD. My understanding is that the mother thought it was a pretty name and didn't know it was an STD. That poor child is going to grow up being made so much fun of and so will her mother. But that being said Bret Hart named one of his kids blade so that is just as bad I guess. I'm just glad we have the freedom to do that in our country.

Bandits Shamrox

So The Bandits Played the Shamrox who are one of the expansion teams and in the begining the Bandits where way ahead but Chicago did start to Make it interesting but in the end they could never catch up and the Bandits won. Before the game I went to Pearl St. and got the pregame buffet.



Here are some pictures from the Bandits game. I decided I would crop them just to cut down on the turf and fans and non important stuff. I did a little messing around. The photo program I used suggested I save them as png plus cause then it isn't a flat picture so I did save some like that but now those ones don't show up. So as a reminder to myself not to do that for (e:strip) again I'm going to leave up the notations Then there are also some non Bandits pictures also.

Boat

Firstly my lame ass should be going out but I won't be, I'm a little tired and there has been a lot of work this week to tire me out. Jackdaw is at the Mohawk at 10 and there is some event that sounds cool at Diablo. I will admit that the few times I remember my dreams they go by so quick I can never remember them but this morning I had one that I can't remember all of. I was on what seemed like one of those house boats from (e:pauls) pictures of SF and it was very huge. I think it might have even been two together. There where all these young (old enough to be legal and drink) ladies in Bikinis all over the boat and I couldn't find my way off the boat so I kept having to ask how to get to the exit door I did find my way out. But the part I can't remember anymore is if I stepped out onto sand or a boardwalk and I remember I saw someone I knew but can't remember who it was. The dream seemed to go on for some time. So I wake up look at the TV and there is an ad I mean infomercial for the new girls gone wild video it is the one with some members from the real world on it as hosts and has some name. So I'm guessing some of that got into my mind and the trying to find a way out was me trying to wake up and go to work but who knows.

Buffalo Chapter BLS

Last night I went to see Black Label Society and had a great time. They where really good and really loud. It should be interesting to see when my one ear fixes itself and dosn't ring anymore. I forget the name of the opening band somethin like santuary or something like that they were pretty good to. The only thing is that it was hard to Here what Zakk was singing . I'm not sure if it was where I was standing that the drums where so loud. But to me his vocals and guitar kinda blended togather. I could here is voice but couldn't make out a lot of what he was saying, I wonder if I was the only one. Oh yeah one other cool thing is that I got to see some of the Hockey game before the concert then in between bands I got to see the end of the game. The Devils got that last second goal and could have tied it but feel short. On a side note I'm not a Devils fan, yeah I used to be for about a month years ago. But they do have a pretty cool Jersey and a pretty good goalie. Oh yeah back to my point one of the Members of BLS Wore a Sabres Jersey for Part of the show. It was the old one with the old symbol (not the blue and gold) of the buffalo. It was #81 it looked like it said Satan. If he where ever traded to the devils I would buy a home and away Jersey and wear it to every Metal or Hard rock show I could. That would be one hot seller. I know it is said like Sh in shit and Tan but still it is spelled Satan and on a Devils Jersey that would be preaty dam cool. Oh yeah back to BLS they did a nice tribute to "Dim Bag" it really was nice. I never take my camera to Town Ballroom because of the pat downs and not really sure if they are allowed I did see some people taking photos so Maybe I should have taken it, oh well.


On a different note:
Saturday Night I have a bandits game to go to so that should be fun vs. the Shamrox and I'm thinking maybe Friday go see Jackdaw but most likely I will just stay home but who knows. There is also some art show fashion show at Diablo that might be interesting not sure about that on friday. Then Sunday I will watch Wrestlemania Yeah it is expensive but it should be a great time. So I wish everyone a early happy weekend.

BLS

Firstly I admit I only have one Black Label Society CD but they are in town on Wends. So I have to go see them at the Towne Ballroom . For some time they had the prefix of "Zax Wilde's" but I think they drop that not sure. I have no idea who the opening act is or if there is one or two but it should be a good time in any event. I'm tempted to go right from work and then go to T.G.I Fridays for dinner it sounds like a good idea. Oh yeah I must also get cash so I can buy merch. I guess that is all I really have to say, hopefully one of these days I'll have an exciting post but oh well.

Photo theme

Recently photos have kinda been a theme and it is kinda odd in a way. A couple posts back I mentioned that I keep pictures in photo albulms and that it took a long time to put them away. Well tonight I have about 120 to do that with but it shouldn't take to long I hope. But where things get interesting is that last night Photos the theme in the Simpsons there was an entire thing about the Paperazzi . But what started it all was that they got a fire safe and put the photoalbulm in it and a fire starts in the safe and destroys all the pictures. Then then get the idea to re-stage all the pictures. Yes they did say re-stage meaning that the pictures where staged in the first place. I found that funny cause it implies that they posed for the pictures and that the pictures where what they wanted to see or to remember and not what actually was. This was also a small point in one of the stories on Desperate Housewives weeks ago where they showed people smiling. But it brings up the point that if pictures are only of the happy moments and not of the fist fight that breaks out after the picture or the tantrums and doors slamming that then that stuff doesn't get represented. I understand that you may not want a picture of a kid crying but all the pictures taken of the family or what ever you take shouldn't be just happy stuff and only the gorgeous buildings you see in a city. I'm not saying that you should go to every funeral and wake and take pictures but we often have trouble taking pictures of the tough times. Sometimes it is out of respect or that you know there might be people who don't want there picture taken or don't want that distraction. But As I have learned you often regret not taking those pictures, when you look back on it. Ok I guess my little rant, not that it is really a rant is over.

Bandit Albulms

For those of you who read My last journal or "blog" what ever term you prefer here are two pictures that are not the best but that kinda convey what I was talking about. Oh before I forget I don't want everyone to think I'm a huge Maple Leaf fan that flag I got at a Game I went to years ago when in toronto.

The Bandits did wind up winning the game last night and I had a good time and I shall put up some pictures from the game in random order but first here are the pictures of Downtown Buffalo I took before the game (also on my webshots page). Two of the pictures are of the new R2-D2 mailboxes .

I will admit that it would have been nice if the sabres and bandits would have won But I know that is unrealistic sometimes. But I had a good time here are some shots of the game and some of the Bandettes also.

Pictures and More

First of all before I forget the Bandits Have a home Game on Saturday night Vs. The Colorado mammoth. It should be a good game and it is a vary important game since the Bandits are in second place in there devision. Colorado is in first place in the other devision and I think only has one lose so far.

Last weekend I had a busy and fun weekend with the Car Show, Mat's Birthday and the parade and I took lots of pictures. But one little draw back is how long it took to put all those pictures into a picture album. Yes I use picture albums. I also download the pictures onto a computer and then back them up on CD or maybe the computer is the back up. One cool thing is if you have pictures on a CD is that you can look at them on a DVD player assuming it is one of the ones that is JPEG compliant . I will admit that I don't do it that often but it is still a pretty cool idea. But what my problem is now is that I have to go out and get shelving or some type of bookcase that is big enough for all my albums. I have some small ones and some large ones so finding one that is the right size is tough, but I'm currently looking into it. Maybe I'll find one this weekend I hope.

Oh yeah that is the other thing I wanted to mention On the 28th I'm going to see Black Label Society, that should be a fun time for sure. I forgot the other thing I wanted to mention. So I hope everyone has a great weekend.
