The Death Of Diablo
But before I talk about Diablo I should mention that I'm not from the Continental..... I know some people who read what I write are....
-For many years never heard of the place
-Bands I have never heard of
-Dance Music isn't really my thing
-Would have loved to find out if the legendary 3rd floor was true or not
-If said band was there getting home at some crazy time at night would be tough.....
-Back what must have been ages ago I think a saw a band out side of the place at one of those festivals might have been the art voice street fest but never made it inside......
Now I'm not going to lie and say I'm at Club Diablo once a month... In fact I don't go there very often.... But it is the coolest place in town....
-Jen sure knew how to poor a drink and was sweet and pretty
-Love the interior
-They play Rock Music not only that dance stuff
-None of that here is a line to get in crap lets make you wait....
-One Never feels out of place there.... That kid with the leather skirt on is like so what.... Or a dude with a suit so what.... Or dog collar and chain so what
- Now again I'm not a regular but it is a great place for so many people
The reasons why I didn't go that often are the same as for the Continental......
-The biggest is from downtown to around Grover is a long way at 3am or even longer at 4am , and why is there never any cabs about and do they even take debit cards?
-Yes bands I've never heard of is another reason
But again it is an amazing place and it will leave a big vast hole when it closes.... I wonder if any thing else will move in there and how it would compare....
So I guess I should list some things that I remember seeing there....
-Caught some kind of Contest with Mike after something else we went to
-Went to see DJ Curt Soma spin a couple times I think
-Purgatory Fetish :That was eye Opening
-Purgatory Fetish show 2: That was Amazing
-Cony Island cockabilly Road Show was amazing: Bands and Side show stuff it was amazing
- Think I saw a small version of that show
-A Fetish show (no photos unless you knew the person on stage) by one of the local groups Niagara Fetish of some kind
-Satan For President Art Show!!!!!
-As Summer Dies Anti Valentines day show
--->I feel like I may have seen them twice there....
-Technoir Fashion Show 2 wish I would have seen the 1st one.....
-I'm sure I'm leaving something out.........How did I see the Hell's Harlots?
So kinda lost my train of thought... Remember I don't prof read I just kinda have an idea what I want to say when I write a blog then go at it... But the place will be missed by myself and even more so by others... So stop in and say your respect or for those that don't believe in funerals poor some out for Club Diablo that night where ever you hang out.....
I my self amworking on plans to go.... Don't have them all worked out... Why are Downtown Hotels so costly... I remember they use to be more then staying in Toronto and they still are it looks like.... The next day I have wrestling and it will be cold I'm sure and If I go out and get a suit I could just walk from a hotel... Don't want to try that with a big camera at 3am.... I wish I could find a fun suit you know with like flames or something or even a cool suit that would look gangsta.... Or even an all red one..... Guessing it will wind up being JC Penny black dress pants and suit jacket with black shirt and black tie?
I feel like i left something out.......

2010 Artfestival Art
The above site is for one of the people's art I bought. I know the festival gets bashed by many but I do like the art that they have, well some of, and I'm sure some people don't like what I do. This post is also a test the one I did yesterday was in Safari and this one is IE just want to try it out and see if anything is different well here is that guys art that I bought:
Rip Bodman has some really interesting art and is pretty interesting himself . That should lead to the piece of art I bought, I forgot to take a picture of it. It is real bright colors and good contrast. I have thought of buying his stuff in the past but haven't I think price was a factor not sure if it was cheaper now or what my mind set was.
Paul Massaro is a Tattoo Artist But he also does paintings. I bought prints. I think his work is amazing. I don't know what it says, or if it does. The one that I really wanted he didn't have a print of but I think you may enjoy his stuff. I had to come back on sunday. Yes I did like the Jesus Arm Wrestling Santa claus but it wasn't the one I really wanted but I like the two that I got.
The One I really wanted the most:
The reason I like it is you have the historical stuff like the moon and the bombers. What does a burning time magazine mean and what about that mask on the TV? But also in the room that animal has an arm and is the same thing that is happening in the picture, plus the entire thing is so striking.
Well I might as well include some pictures from the festival and the general sense of things:
Before I got to a few pictures from Sunday I have to say that is sure seemed when I was there that less people where there compaired to last year. But that is just me.
Well Now it is time to see how it comes out, I enjoyed the festival hope those that partok or didn't had a good time.

MIA Press Conference
Before the Official Start:
I should ad that the pictures I took are of the guys in the red suit coats called "Those Idiots", they do rock songs kinda as polka kinda, if you have seen them you know what I mean.
Well Just learned You can only do 10 pictures at a time, I used to only 9 mostly anyways.
Then After the Reveal more dancing:
I just have to add a few things. The picture of me next to the pictures I took wasn't taken by me, it was by Bob (robert) the guy who took the great picture of the lady with all the tattoos. The picture of David Butler in the casket looked amazing, it is hard to tell here how much depth it had it was really amazing looking. The same Person took the picture of the Marching band, yes the girl is my cousin and she is married to the person (seth) Playing what ever that huge instrument is called. It was a nice time now to see how the pictures look and if they are spaced or if to do that I have to move them apart by hitting the space or enter key we shall see.

Miss Buffalo Wing Festival
After the Intros they had some dancers and then went into the Talent portion I think it was all singing and dancing. I would have loved to see some one do impressions that would have been awesome but no luck, HA.
How Could I forget the St. Pualie Girl. She was amazing she talked about how knowing so many languages was a waste, and how the playmates where trying to look like her, it was a great time.
Now The Talent Portion
I think the dancers where called Center Stage Not 100% on that.
So then Next they Had the Evening wear portion and did the part where they asked them the two questions all in one. That then led to the presenting the awards to the runners up and the winners. You will notice the winner from last Year and That Sexy Beer Maden in those photos also.
Then Here are a few Pictures from after the contest.
I had a great time and I hope the people who went on both days had a good time as well, hope if anyone read down this far that they enjoyed this post and my previous one as well.

Taste of Buffalo 2
Before my movie I went to Danny's again and tried the Medium size Beef on Weck Soup. It was pretty good.
Then it was onto something I didn't notice until I read the news on the taste of Buffalo this morning. Red Osier Has a Hot Roast Beef Sunday. It is hard to describe but wow was it tasty. It really was very good.
So I left for a bit and went to see Bruno at The Market Arcade or what ever they call it now. With out giving anything away it was wild, and Funny. It wasn't as funny as I thought it might but It was still pretty good. But I the other hand it was also funnier then I thought it might be. Some times with a movie like that they show you all the funny stuff on the previews. Yes it was very vulgar. I was surprised that they had stuff black Boxed out. Some of the stuff I'm glad was boxed out and some of the stuff I wish wasn't blacked boxed out. It would be interesting to see if they come out with a DVD Version that is unrated so you can see all that crazy stuff. But maybe not seeing it makes it funnier not sure about that? If the wild stuff in Borat you liked then you will like this.
After the movie I went back to The taste. It was so packed you could hardly move. Still got free stuff to drink though. I also talked to this Nice Blond from yesterday who was at the cars again. I hope she got to go get some food. It is weird because since they are the first place it was kinda like she was a greater but really wasn't.
the final thing I ate was 3 tickets from Just Pizza , The Bruscetta White Style Pizza was very good. Well that weekend sure went fast, it was a good time though.

Taste Of Buffalo Day 1
First I saw these cool looking cars, Ford Fiesta's they aren't even out yet. Later on I found out (she was pretty cute also) that you can take them for a test drive, that is pretty cool.
I tried the Mandarin Chicken Pasta from the place called some thing like crankshift cafee, It was good quality but it was cold pasta not warm so I didn't like it.
Hesters's Pub and Grill I think had this really good Chicken and Sausage Gumbo.
Fruit20 essentials was giving away free samples near the fountain in the center. The stuff is pretty tasty and they gave me 2 full bottles so that was awesome not sure if they did that after the rain stopped.
Also near by there Fruit Simple. They make good stuff and where giving stuff away free. I saw some people with full bottles and not sure how they got them. The two flavors I tired where pretty good I think mixed berry and Pomegranate blueberry.
I really need a bag so I donated a dollar to stars of hope as (e:metalpeter) . I won a "The Taking of Pelham 123" shirt, I never did get to go see it but I wanted to, plus I got a bag to hold all my stuff in.
Still in center Vitamin Water free Samples, tasty stuff.
Giacobbis Had a good Buffalo Wing burger. I had no idea what to expect it was a Cheese Burger with some kind of sauce it was pretty tasty.
The Oreo Milkshake got me filled up (larger size) from Clarence Center Coffee co. & Cafee. It was good to.
I got the small portion of Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup and want to try the Beef on Weck Soup from Danny's Restaurant I thought the orange colored stuff was good so now I have something else to try on sunday.
At The Como I had the Broccoli Parmesan I figured I would try it and it was good.
Not sure of the name of the place but I had a small portion $1.50 size of the texas Chili again I was kinda full still, it was good.
Anderson's has a nice Loganberry Ice. For 3 tickets you can't expect to much. I like it but what I mean is if it was prepackaged it would come off better. The best thing to do is not eat it right away let it melt a bit.
I tried Mobay's Jerk Chicken it was one Piece of tasty chicken on rice, I thought I saw someone else with two pieces but maybe that was a different thing, not sure.
Torches had a pretty good idea in sending its Ladies out walking with skimpy little out fits on or maybe it was their idea. The one problem though is that the way their signs where set up was if anyone was in line you couldn't tell what they where selling. That being said next door having that trophy and that cool motorcycle with the stuffed pig on it was a great idea.
Is it me or does Every Year Jack Astors have a bunch of really nice ladies working. I sometimes wonder if they do special recruitment for the festivals. This is often true of JP Bullfeathers also but they are local so I kinda doubt it.
If you don't want to eat to much it does make good people watching just be careful how you walk I some how pissed off some dude he seemed a bit nuts.
I did have a couple drinks, One must get a couple of those collectable cups. Generally speaking each type of drink comes in a different color. You have to give props to people (assuming they are all theirs) that have that huge stack of cups inside of cups and all kinds of colors. When I left and with the weather I didn't see to much of that but I'm sure I'll see some people who spend around $40 on beer well I don't know how much it really costs so.....
Before I went home I went to look at the AUD at first you think that it is all gone. When you look closer you can see it isn't all gone. there is a bunch of ruble on top of what looks like a garage. Then there is also some of those I call them step areas. If you haven't seen it in some time take a few minutes to go check it out.
Hope the rest of everyone's weekend is good.
