Got a smokebomb thrown on me at the '82 Coliseum Who tour right on July 1st. Man, was I a sucka for thinking that was the last tour. They put me out of their misery on that one. I liked the poormanspacemen3 show the Warlocks. Best psche in Memphis since the Fieldhands. I haven't been to the orchid yet but it's always good to be on the opposite side of the table from koeppel. What a no-nothing moron...worst song ever is oh, nikki, (Mickey) by Toni Basil. CIA torture in high school. Surprised no one else felt this way. Props to Eric for doing this website & putting up with people like Chris Alienator who needs a new hobby or website to haunt. Send him lots of money (eric, not Chris)...

Is it the heat or the humidity? I've got more craters than Neil Armstrong's picture album. Is anyone else breaking out like crazy in this weather? Gotta stay away from Gus'...

Definately the humidity. It's way more comfortable in a lotta places much hotter than Memphis cuz their humidity not so fuckin' high. The sweat shit's killin' me. How's a girl supposed to stay cool?

Since you asked...my parents were out of town so not only did I have a key to the old man's scotch, but I also got to log on to his aol account gratis!!! Awesome! Actually I started that post as a tribute to the (hopeful) return of J.C. Haradaway sometime in the next week. God Bless america! But when I posted it, it screwed up & I had to retype the whole thing...somehow J.C. got left out and the rest is history. Anyway, that Who tour was in 1980, not '82. Twas their 1st "last tour" at the time. Also, Memphis concert fans will remember this concert as the "price buster"--1st concert over $10--most shows at the time were around $7 or $8 & it was a big deal to pay $12.50 for a show. (I think $12.50 was the service charge I paid on a ticket to see the Strokes at the House of Schmooze in Vegas this year). Keep in mind, in 1980, only the Stones & Bowie had even begun to think about "corporate sponsorship" on tours at the time. Times have changed. I remember how offended everyone was when the stones had a bottled water or credit card or perfume company underwrite the tour costs. No relief on the ticket prices either--the cash went straight to Jagger's offshore account. Ah, reminiscing...more later, grandchildren.
