Things I’ve Written Crazy Dave.

I send random messages to Crazy Dave all the time.  Usually trying to break his spirit or make him question his sexuality.  But Dave has either thick skin or a short memory so I haven’t succeeded in doing either.

"Listen to these words, Dave, for your life is useless.  And my tongue drives you to madness!"

I can’t find the right photo…

So here’s a picture of my friend Jordan Christensen and somebody’s baby.

Jordan was the drummer for Crazy Dave’s Slightly Used Porn.  We would play parks in the middle of the day.

That's him back there.  Wave hi.  Soccer moms were angry.

We had issues.

Then 9-11 changed everything.  Actually it was the manager of the U-Haul place that changed.  The new one kicked us out.  Our career was over.  The End.

Digital Cameras: Friend or Foe?

I own three digital cameras and fear change so I’ve been having issues taking pictures of my random cookings.  The past year or so I’ve been using one of my parent’s old cameras, a klunky HP 735 that’s 3.2 MP and drinks batteries like we’re on a cheap date.  It took good pictures if the subject stood still but when you’re a crazy cat gentleman like me it just didn’t cut it…

"Hulk hold Johnny 5 so picture good!!!"

“Hulk hold Johnny 5 so picture good!!!”

Well, back in February I was looking around my local Wal-Mart and decided to buy  a new camera.  A Vivitar that’s 12 MP.  That’ almost 4 times better than that HP!  Think of all the great cat pictures I can take!

On March 31st I had this live chat on Facebook.

I wasn’t lying.

Mark Shaw

My friend Mark Shaw just passed away recently.  He was a part of my life.  Sometimes major, sometimes minor but since my senior year in High School he’s been a part of it.   Even if we weren’t hanging out at the time he’d be a part of stories, memories and influences on my life.  Lord knows plenty of times we rubbed each other the wrong way but always we’d end up laughing and talking crap about the rest of the World again.

 

Mark loved everything about sleep except waking up.

Mark and I had plenty of terrible adventures.  We’ve been nude on stage together.  We’ve dealt with German bands at seedy hotels in Dallas together.  We’ve been in car wrecks together.  We’ve seen Crazy Dave’s new tattoo float by us in the pool together.  We’ve worked together.  We’ve puked together.  We’ve burned a diary together.  We’ve ruined relationships together.  Hell, sometimes the best thing was that we played Contra together.

I miss him.  I will say I took it for granted that he was going to be kicking it around up here in Northeast Tarrant County as long as I was.  And that is all I’ll say along those lines here.

I will also say Mark touched a lot of people in his life.  He was a drummer and became a damn good one over time.  His personality made an impression on anyone that was around him for any amount of time.  Almost like a brother, being asshole/close friend 60/40 or 40/60 % of the time.  His travels and touring spread the magic that was Mark.  People states away…  people countries away from his home on Bandit Trail had stories about Mark that they will tell for years to come.

I wish there was one way to sum up Mark.  To show what he was, what he meant to so many.  These two videos do give a bit of a sight into him but there is so much more to say…

I miss you Mark.  I’m glad I was able to speak at your funeral and I sure as hell would have gone a lot longer and added juicier details if it was just friends there.  Hell, I could have gone on longer even without the details.  You were a rich part of my life and it is hard to believe and it hurts to know you’re gone.  You gave me a lifetime of stories to tell and I shall tell them.  Just like everyone you touched.

I love you brother.

p.s.  “Here’s your Igoo!”

I was in a band once, I swear!!!

Look at that awesome screen! Thank you Ozzphestapawarped Tour!!!

That was an amazing magical time…

I’m gonna rock these fuses STRAIGHT TO HELL!

Wow, my undies is showing…

And then this happened. 

What is happening?

What is sad all of these are better Photoshopped than what I can do today.

One last Crazy Dave from that period of time…

You should see his rims!
