To celebrate the release of its seventh book, Royal Flush held a special signing event this past Monday, October 11 at New York City's own Forbidden Planet with cover star Rob Zombie. The acclaimed musician and filmmaker signed copies of Royal Flush Book Seven and "Hellbilly Deluxe 2 - Special Edition" (out now on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud).
Wichita Police say the annual Toy Run will return to its normal route along Broadway. Deputy Chief Terry Moses says area law enforcement will be out to direct traffic along the route through the city up to the Coliseum. Southbound lanes of Broadway will be closed through the construction at 21st Street so riders can use both lanes. Construction pylons cannot be removed from the intersection and there is a steep drop-off on the east side of the road, so police are urging riders to be cautious through the intersection. Contractors working to replace the bridge on Broadway just south of 53rd Street North will temporarily open the bridge to Toy Run participants only. It will immediately close after riders make it across. The Toy Run will be this Sunday and starts at Lawrence Dumont Stadium.
It cracks me up at how things get labeled "too dirty" for TV. Slash's new music video for his song "Beautiful Dangerous", which features a guest appearance from Fergie, is apparently too steamy for wide public release and will have to be edited. Slash was quoted as saying in a recent interview, "It's very controversial. I thought it was okay but apparently there's a lot of suggestiveness and we're having a rethink." The clip stars Fergie as a crazed fan who stalks Slash and ends up tying him to a bed, kissing him and teasing him with a knife, all while dressed in leather lingerie. Slash said that the sexy BLACK EYED PEAS singer came up with the concept for the video herself.
First, it's hard to believe Thanksgiving is almost here. I can't wait to chow down on some bird and grandma's homeade fixins! THEN, it's off to bed for a early morning of BLACK FRIDAY shopping! Fighting the crowds, a**hole to elbow shoving, and getting that holy grail of gifts! I remember back when you didn't know what the ultimate deals were until you got the newspaper and mapped out your quest. Now, with internet "leaks" you can find the deals early, and even buy from the comfort of your home online! Here is a link to see a sampling of what's to come on Black Friday. Happy shopping, and save me some stuffing!
Well, another great weekend! Friday night, what a bad-ass concert with BLS at The Cotillion! The place was packed, the opening acts were unbelievable, and BLS totally brought it! Zakk Wylde is one of the nicest guys in the music biz too. He loves to talk your ear off, to the point where his tour manager had to bitch at him a couple of times to shut his trap because they were on a tight schedule. Which, may I add, Zakk then told that dude to "shut the F**K up, I'm talkin here'"! HA!!
METALLICA's KIRK HAMMETT Accidentally kicks a little kid off the stage! Another clip has been posted online of a METALLICA concert that took place in Sydney, Australia last Thursday (November 11), where guitarist Kirk Hammett is seen kicking a large black balloon that accidentally smacks into a small child standing onstage and sends the child flying several feet into the audience. At first it was reported that the little one was James Hetfield's son. But not the case. The child was apparently the daughter of either METALLICA's production or tour manager. The child was not injured, so it makes it easier to watch! The band's management said they plan on contacting Tom Bergeron at America's Funniest Home Video's to see if they could score $10,000. Ok, I made that last part up. HAHAHAHA!!
So today and every Thursday, I hang out at The Garage Bar & Grill in Delano with the comedians from the Loony Bin Comedy Club from 11a - 1pm. Great $5 buck lunch specials, 2-4-1 well drinks, and FREE tickets to the Loony Bin! Come out on Thursdays for all the fun! (except next Thursday, it's turkey day)
How did your "Black Friday" shopping go? Fortunately for me, ALL of our Christmas shopping is completely done! I thought about getting up early and getting a couple extra things, but that is a avoidable nightmare, so I stayed in and just surfed the web for deals. I'm glad I did, because I saw the nutty store lines on the news! However, I thought I would do a quick run in & out at Kmart on my way into the station at 9am, and JEEZ! Every checkout lane was still 20 people deep, and I bet I would have been in the checkout lane well over an hour. Screw that!
