UNCLE JIM WRESTLES SCHMUCKS AT DINNER
Friday night after work, Rebecca and I made an appearance at Ground Zero for the Uncle Jim Memorial Show.¬† We got there just in time to catch GHOST IN THE MACHINE take the stage for the first time in several months.¬† They put on a great set playing some of their new material from their upcoming disc.¬† FROM TOMORROW played next and then we stayed long enough to catch a portion of STRAIGHT LINE STITCH's set before calling it a night.
Saturday I made a return trip to Rutherford County, NC and went to see some SWA wrestling action at the armory in Forest City along with Burket and his wife Jackie.¬† We mingled with some folks and promoted our show coming up on the 7th since Mill Spring is just down the road.¬† Burket and Jackie left a little early to go check out The Ultimate Basement, the venue we are playing on the 7th while I left shortly thereafter with a couple of friends from the area and hit Denny's in Spindale.¬† We rallied some folks to come out and join us and I even posted it on facebook to see who we could get to come out.
Afterwards, on my way home, I drove around Chesnee, SC trying to find one of SWA's wrestlers Wicked's house since he always throws killer parties after their matches.¬† I've only been once and I was riding with someone else so I couldn't find my way!¬† I seriously drove around and around for an hour and a half!¬† And Wicked wasn't answering his phone!¬† Oh well, it happens when ya party hard!
Sunday was my cousin Ray's baby shower as he and his wife Erin are welcoming their second child (a GIRL!) in late August.¬† Not much to say because it was a baby shower, an event most men don't attend but I am close with my cousin so THERE!
After work Monday I had band practice at Burket's house since our drummer Leman is on vacation.¬† Afterwards, I met up with a facebook friend named Tessa I had just recently started 'talking' to.¬† We hung out until like 5 in the morning because time just seemed to melt away!¬† I'm excited because I haven't connected with someone like that in quite some time!
Needless to say, I was rather exhausted due to lack of sleep but I pressed on regardless and then went out to catch the sneak preview of Dinner For Schmucks starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd.¬† The movie is about a guy trying to move up in the corporate world and is invited to a dinner where a bunch of high class jerks each bring an idiot 'friend' to make fun of and to see who can¬†find the biggest idiot.¬† The film was an absolute riot!¬† Definitely go!
