i was never much for those sport analogies and considered most of those blurbs as over played cliché but as i pedaled home from the prosperity social club there was many remembrances of the previous 80 minutes flowing through my head.
first i must preface the following thoughts with my 'mindset' entering this experience.
i have been going to prosperity every monday late-night [approx 1 hour after i get home from my monday work shift].
the prosperity has 3 dollar pints these mondays and the atmosphere is usually always relaxed with just a few other patrons going about their monday-evening business which is a perfect 'wind-down' from my 12 hour day.
prosperity has karaoke night every third monday and this i knew from the start that is approximately a handful of months ago.
i am not a huge karaoke fan but i know of the allure and love singing in the shower. with that said, i totally forgot about the karaoke rotation until i was locking my bike this night.
i enter prosperity amongst the continuing growing throng of karaoke fans but quickly notice that there are many 'friendly faces' that i have not seen in a while and a few that i see too often..
[names concealed/not trying to embarrass people]
best few sentences of dialog i heard this 80 minutes:
girl 1: i got jello shots, you want one lou?
me: no thanks, i don't drink liquor.
girl 1: fine. you ready [girl 2]? i think they're best with a straw..
girl 2: i don't really know you but from what i hear, you use your tongue just fine..
girl 1 is actually a nice lady, she believes i hate her but i don't, it's just that i don't relate to her.
i also ran into mikey machine, i have not seen mikey in [what seem like] months and i haven't had the opportunity to sit and talk to him in over a year.
that changed within these 80 minutes and mikey got me excited about the upcoming annual-halloween machine go boom show at pat's on the 27th and news that the 'helper t cells' are doing a halloween show at the beachland on the 31st, the t-cells will be playing the part of the residents this night, i would be a dick if i miss this.
mikey also cleared up a query that i recently commented on at brewedfreshdaily.com
the post dealt with a local photographer that felt he was abused by having a photo he shot on the cover of friday magazine without compensation/credit.
i responded to the post by stating [in abbreviation] that it was probably not the PD getting over on you but the band you shot submitted that photo along with their bio at the PDs request and overlooked/forgot to ask of the photographers OK.
i seen the friday magazine that day at the local coffee shop and noticed a photo near the center of the cover that i shot of brian straw. my first thoughts at the time was 'sweet, straw is getting props..'
i was off to my 2nd shift and was not able to absorb much of this article so i quickly forgot until i read my feed-burner on monday.
mikey said that each band was asked to submit a bio & a band photo that can be published.
that gave me some relief considering that i may have responded to said post prematurely.
there were some other 'things' that happened this night/morning but i'm tired.
the cowher 60 minute analogy may confuse you but the reasoning that i formed during the bike-ride home was that i had just gathered more info in a hour than i usually gather in months of mondays.
