Spring Ahead Fall Back?

What is going on over the last week or so? I have seen and been witness to some remarkable women being dumped by their guys! I can see dumping someone that is a bad person but these women are hot and intelligent. That is a combo that you don't come across too often. Well you can always say that sometimes men feel intimidated by intelligence, but come on now!

I did read a interesting quote on someone's myspace page, "For every attractive woman you see someone got sick of her!"

Scary thought

Just my question is: What kind of women are these guys going to replace their ex-girlfriends with?

Transmission Dance Party

I feel really bad that the only time I ever make an appearance at Mohawk Place is when there is a Transmission Dance Party. Here is the pretty descent place that features good local music and solid recording artists and I never go to enjoy that aspect of the place. I go to hang with underage kids dancing to music that first came out when they were probably in elementary school! Well at least I can take comfort in that thought. Usually the theme of a Smiths v. Cure or Depeche Mode v. New Order features songs that were recorded when most of the attendees were not born yet.

The way I look at it at least I get to go and look at the black and white signed photo of The White Stripes over the archway midway down the bar. It's always fun to show my friends that Jack White III and Meg White autograph and say "They played here!!! OMG!!!" Then again where am I going to find PBR for $2?

OK weekend slumber over, back to reality and the effort to change it.

Fetish Ball 2

Being the good boyfriend with my Ex (i.e. doing things that I should have done when we are together) I humored her and ventured out to Levels. Dance clubs on the Chip Strip make me gag. In all the time we were dating never did I go with her to that place no matter how much she begged me. Years ago when it was Zoo Bar I stopped in a few times but that was it. Never really enjoyed myself there and nothing ever spectacular ever occurred in a place like that. Heck the existence of a place of that nature reinforces the fact that 54% of Americans have an IQ lower than 89.

Please note I am not a total freak! The difference in why we went this night was it was the Fetish Ball. Now I attended Fetish nights at the Continental and they were off the wall and out of this world. Oh, some good memories. I even participated once and may post...UMMM on 2nd thought

This night was pretty lame. Evil Jim from 103.3 was there and it was unspectacular. All they really had to offer was a gift bag of condoms, lube, Planned Parenthood numbers, adds for a lingerie place on Hertel and a really bad Porn DVD.

The highlight was an old Drag Queen V that I had known from back in the day. Apparently the surgery was very successful! Wow is all I can say after about 7 years. It has been that long since I went to the drag show at Marcella's.

Overall she wanted to leave early, as the whole event was a big disappointment. It was the same crowd as any weekend night at Levels. In all just a total lack of substance. Yes, the people from lesbian karaoke At Roxy's did do a good job M.C.ing the event and doing a suicide girlsesque number. It was just a big let down. Especially this guy from NYC that tried rapping in a Lords of Acid type of way, but coming off a combination of bad performance art and Vanilla Ice. Yea, after him it was time to go at that point. I did like the ultra lounge in the front of the place. The only redeeming quality of the place.

Bored

Yea read a post in which someone mentioned the Pop Godess Britney Spears, this may be of interest



Wanted to head out tonight, but just ended up cleaning.

A bit of a waste given I don't have to work until 2:45 in the afternoon.

Yea I am a bad boy

Calling into work tomorrow. Not to do anything fun, just for the purpose of going on a few interviews. I need to do something else. The same players and the lifestyle is just mentally exhausting. It was really fun in the beginning, but as everything else what you see on TV is nothing compared to the things they leave on the cutting room floor.

On top of that I just have been very tired lately. I really have not done much except avoid my "dark" friends. What the future holds for me in that regard is a bit sketchy. I have been friends for decade + with some of them, but their Goth lifestyle is a real drain. It has gotten to the point where I do not even want to go that place on Washington St given the choice of staying home on a Friday night or going there.

My social life has become dull and complicated at the same time. Staying at home has become more of an option since I have returned from my mini vacation. At the same time old friends have been attempting to get my attention. If someone blows me off for months at a time I just get to a point where I basically write them off. Then all of a sudden a surprise text message appears and I act as if I saw Lazarus. Weird.

Well I going to make the call to work now. I am a devious boy or just basically acting out in self preservation.

a small poker outing

So I basically spent my day over in Canada playing Poker @ Casino Niagara. Started out playing 1-2 No Limit but the guy next to me smelled really bad so I ended up going to 3-6 Limit. A nice friendly game but there was this one rock that just could not do anything wrong. By the time I left he was up about 400. I was down for most of the 6+ hours I was there. All I was doing was playing good quality hands. By the end around 9:30 ish or so my Italian buddy engineer guy that I had a good time playing with had to run to his wife or else she was going to kill him. A good time to leave. The only thing I am afraid of is this guy was coughing quite a bit and I'm a bit paranoid of such things.

So on the way out I became a bit hungry. Harvey's was something I was craving but by the time I arrived at the location on Montrose & Thorld Stone it was closed. The next stop was Quizno's on Lundy's Lane. Fortunantly I found a good substitute for my Canadian Cravings. A Montreal Smoked Meat Sub!!1 Good times, plus the music they had playing was descent and I was glad that they stayed open for me. So I tipped them $1

I have a pretty crazy week lined up for me. I just hope I can get through it in one piece without too much stress, well bad stress anyway. The lesson I have to lean is not to get too frazled and worried. Today's session was a nice small exercise.

Mickey's Fine Malt Liquor

Friday's always kick my butt. After working late on Thursday and coming in early the next morning I am exhausted. So when you wake up at 10 at night your options are a bit limited. After getting a bit nostalgic for some Maple Road chain restaurant cuisine after hearing about the demise of Bennigan's and Tony Roma's I went to T.G.I. Friday's with my Ex. It is so strange as we get along better after we broke up.

When we finished our late night dinner, I didn't want the evening to end. So as I always did when we were dating I challenged her a bit. I suggested that we hit Allen St, for some reason she was always afraid to go down there. Hardware actually made a great impression for her as she immediately enjoyed the atmosphere.

The highlight of the night: Hardware now served MICKEYs Fine Malt Liquor. I have been waiting to drink that stuff for 8 years now ever since the movie SLC Punk!

Yes I am weird. That place has a good selection of liquor and wines and when I go there all I drink is Pabst Blue Ribbon and now Mickey's.

Resturant Closings

What is it with Western New York? I swear things get more screwed up as time goes on.

As I heard read on LJ, Bennigan's and Tony Roma's are closed!!!!

This totally sucks >-/

Benigan's was killer for those pints and caloric bar food.

Tony Roma's was a nice upper middle nice place to take a date and enjoy your carnavour side.

At least that new place Smoke 'n Bones opened up on Maple, oh and that Red Robin. Just I loved those two places. So many great memories.

Now I am going to have to visit my Mom down in Florida.

Fuse TV

Led Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Same is on Fuse. I remember when I was a kid and they played it on the forerunner to Fuse, MuchMusic. When we first got the dish and discovered MuchMucic USA, the letdown was bad. Here when I would go up to my Grandma's house in Hamilton and check out all the cool kick butt video's and features on Much it was almost cfny 102.1 on TV. Then years later I get MMUSA, and it just left me scratching my head.

At least the Labbat Blue Spotlight survives through Loaded on FUSE. That always has been a good time watching a block of old and new videos from an artist.

Ok it's late and I have a Dr's appmt tom. morn.
