by thebradmiskell | ˜ No Comments »

Dear Original Bands of Today- Get your buck cherry, sequin-skinned freak on. Wear sex clown make-up and ass-less chaps (unless you’re, like, Motorhead, then DO NOT wear ass-less chaps). Play rococo leads on multi-neck guitars… Give tribute bands of tomorrow something to work with today.

Whatever happened to cover bands, you ask? Tribute bands, that’s what. I don’t know if they’re exactly a subculture. Maybe their followers are. But what a kick in the butt to cover. And how easy? Throw a rock pretty much anywhere in America and you’re going to hit one Led Zepplica or other.

If there’s an Elvis in heaven, Kavee Thongprecha is the guy he wants paying him tribute. Kavee, aka Thai Elvis, aka Kevin, worships the King…

Minikiss, Led Zepplica, LEZ Zeppelin, The Sex Pistols Experience, Cubensis, Thai Elvis, AC-DSHE, Iron Maidens…people, we’re talking mock rock with Marshalls on 11…because that’s louder than 10.

Having missed that year’s mother of all Cons — San Diego’s annual Comic-Con International — I wound up attending the much older and DIY-ier World Science Fiction Convention (held in Anaheim that year)…along with the largest group of social misfits I’d ever seen under one convention hall roof.

My Beef With Cowpokin’ on 3312 2008

In case you’re wondering, I do have a beef with gay rodeoin’. But it’s not the rampant violation of No Shirt, No Service policy I witnessed at the LA Gay Rodeo.

Gay Rodeo Makes You Limp on 3312 2008

by thebradmiskell | ˜ No Comments »

The 2006 LA Gay Rodeo made me limp (but only because I hadn’t worn boots for a while and I was on my feet for hours). Otherwise, I was good to go, as I sensed plenty of cowgirls and boys at the rodeo were.

My first reaction to the 2006 LA Gay Rodeo was: Are you JOKING, GAY PEOPLE! It’s an election year! aren’t you already dealing with enough bull*%#? (Or should I say guacamole? Guacamoled is rodeospeak for when a dim-witted cow craps itself all over you, as in Ann Coulter just guacamoled me.)
