the last six days I got knocked out, cut my eye open, locked my finger
in the van door, and broke my front tooth off, but I would later find
out that my dog also got diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer this
same week. When it rains it pours…]
RIP ROXY 1992-2003
The following morning
I kept an eye on Klutz 1) to see if she really was a klutz and 2) to
keep her at bay. I sat in a chair across the room from where she was
telling someone a story and in 20 seconds witnessed the following: she
put her drink down on the ground behind her to act out her story then
instantly turned her foot into it and spilled it. She picked it up quickly
and bumped into a chair behind her which she tried to catch before it
fell over. This action caused her to back into another chair which she
turned to catch causing the original chair to fall over. I had seen
enough at that point and felt guilty for watching.

Steffen from MY OWN LIES too busy to be drinking!
The MY OWN LIES guys planned to surprise us by playing The Road Warrior
(Mad Max 2 for all you Euros) behind us during our show but I think
someone was too hungover to figure out how to work the projector. Note:
someone in this picture is guilty of breaking my teeth. Right about
this time that person was also responsible for knocking Robert's bass
out of tune. I like how there's a bunch of arms coming out of the audience
and one leg.
Devon is a proud member of the Codpiece Nation.
"That's the note, dude! Ah man, I totally love that note! You fully
play that note - I love it!
Yeah, you're the man, man! You. Are. The. Man!"
I'll give you that note! You like that? Huh? You like that note?! How
about that note IN YO FACE?!?!
This guy's coolness is rivaled only by the Naked French Mosh Crew and
the Gorilla from Münster.

The calm before the storm?
It looks like someone just pulled the ripcord to a folded-up inflatable
Devon liferaft and he is springing to bouyant life. He is presumably
inflating to save us from the aforementioned storm.
Like, whoa, man...
Robert always gets the ladies on his side of the stage while I always
get the headbanging air-guitarists.
Devon spots Klutz and heads Operation Keep Her Away From Craig.

See what I mean? Air guitarists and headbangers...
What's sad is that even though he has no guitar I can tell he can do
way better scales than I can.
Robert turning his back on the Klutz so as to prevent further damage.
Mattias couldn't make it to the show tonight but it turned out he's
also a painter and his first painting exhibit opened tonight. He sent
some scans of his art and here are two of my favorites. 1
you can handle more pics of the show go to BJORG's
through a 17km-long tunnel.
Little Haim is one
of the best friends I made in Israel back in 1997. He has not gotten
as fat as my Israeli friends made him out to be but he is still fatter
than Fat Adi. He sang for DIR
YASSIN but now plays bass in about 185 black metal bands. He
is currently trying to live in Belgium and ladies...he's single!
Heh heh, Robert in shorts still makes me giggle.
That's about as tan as I've looked since I was 8 and spent most of the
summer running around my neighborhood naked.
