My nuts don't dance...

They just write these dumb blog entries for me. Isn't that nice of them? What's happenin, y'all? The utter blog-frenzy caused by my latest DJ appearance has definitely died down, so it's time to post again. Wooster was crazy fun this weekend, as those kiddies always show this old man a good time, or something like that. The Royal Rumble was watched Sunday night at Nappy's (once I woke up), and Batista kicked ass like you knew he would. So now he can have a big dramatic loss at Wrestlemania. Huzzah. Now for some...

Upcoming SHOWZZZ!!!
Wednesday, Feb 2nd: 2005 Columbus Beat Battle hosted by SYSTEM LINK (Numeric & Ginsu), with a performance by Spitball @ Little Brothers. Beatmakers are coming from all over the place to see who has the best! Andy and I should be there, will you?
Thursday, Feb 3rd: Not sure if I'm doing anything, but Sundresses/Mors Ontologica/The Bravado @ Ruby Tuesdays sounds pretty sweet, don't you think?
Friday, Feb 4th: Freekbass & New Basics Brass Band @ Little Brothers, which would be extra dope to see!!!

Saturday, Feb 5th: Very up in the air, but if I end up at a show Saturday night, I want it to be the Tiara/Miranda Sound Split Album Release Party @ Little Brothers with DJ Riko & The Killionaires, sponsored by good ol' Donewaiting (check out the flyer, y'all. I would put it on the page, but it is much too huge).

Past SHOWZZZ!!!
On Friday night, my cousin Nate, my friend Todd, and I saw Mitch Hedberg at the Mershon. He was pretty damn funny, as was his raunchy first opener, Rob somethingorother. Ol' Mitch appeared to be eight sheets to the wind, but he kept going (while leaning against a curtain, lighting a pipe and then putting it into his pocket, and telling jokes from behind the curtain, amongst other things) and did a good job. Comedy is hard for me to write about, so let's just say it was funny!
On Thursday night, Andy and I made it to the 2nd Anniversary Party for the Taco Ninja at Cafe Bourbon Street (home of the Ninja). Of course, Jason let Andy try a "pinch of the Bear," which soon put young Nappy to bed. Like he already said, don't dip, kids! The openers were The Spikedrivers, a damn awesome rockin' bluegrass band that you need to see sometime! Then the poisonous duo of Wicked Lung & the Wookalar came on to wreck shit. They played some new songs, which were rather sweet (Look out, look out, look out, my teeth are falling out!), of course. For the last half of the set, they kicked into their DEATH METAL set, which I was seeing for the first time. Pretty damn entertaining, if you ask me. Sure, it's just them screaming demonically (BEASTMASTER!!!) over metal-looped beats, but doesn't that sound like enough for you??? Good times, even with the early retiring of the Nap.

Well, I hate to run, but...I must. Let's see a show together this week, huh?

The organist? WACK. That's sad news.

One and the same. So lame- my friend Ron had tickets to see him next friday at yoshi's. We also both had tickets for The Who a week after Entwhistle died (not to make light, but I asked him to buy tickets for american idol or ashlee simpson or something). Anyway- Drew, we DEMAND a bloggins retrospective on Jimmy's career. He was a good man...
