Por Tu Placer

Por Tu Placer

Lately I've been trying to regain the pleasure of writing. It used to be a drive or need than it became somewhat of a job or a chore. It came to light at some point that I no longer wanted to do anything that was a chore cause well, it was too close to being a job. This has been an on going pattern in my life since childhood. First obsession, followed by completely devotion, then frustration, followed complete lack of interest and dread. I don't think I'm alone in this. I've felt that you should be involved with something unless you are willing to throw yourself into it.

I've covered this subject in the past and in fact have a whole page/section that is about nothing but bmx - http://axiompiercing.com/bmx. It covers the past, my interests and who was involved but it really doesn't go into my love affair I had with it or what is going on now. In a recent conversation with my friend Stacie, she commented that I tend to always be obsessed with something. Not really in a negative way but in a passionate way. Well, BMX was my really first love and obsession and the first real sub-culture that I was involved with.

I was listening to an interesting interview last night on NPR on the way home. Didn't caught the subject of the interview, the name of the show or who was interviewing who but the thing that stood out in the few minutes I did hear, was how the cult of capitalism had created anti-social behavior.

"I don't want to think about it, I don't want to see, I don't want to know the kind of fool they'll make of me, the public gets what they deserve not what they demand unless we all decide to be a business, not a band" Agent Orange - Breakdown

Alright I had planned on doing only one of these and then kind of forgetting about and moving on to something else. But right now I have a lot on my mind and I think it might interest a few of you.

Been a while and I know it has. Well, I could go on to say that I just had so much going on in my life but to be completely honest I really haven't. Sure things have been happening but nothing that should have kept me from posting a blog beyond basic laziness.

Today I’m proud to be an American

Today I’m proud to be an American

I'm proud of all of you cause you voted in the largest numbers they are saying, since woman got the vote. That is incredible when you really start to think about it. The American public in fact spoke up and they spoke up for change. You are involved again and that is a wonderful thing.

 

Viva La Hairy Mary's

Viva La Hairy Mary's

It's official, the place has been sold in as of right now the future is unknown. It has been a clubhouse and second home to the live music scene in some form since the early 90s. The old location hosted such great bands as X, Mud Honey, L7, NIL8, Jesus Lizard, Ween, Billy Goat, House of Large Sizes, PAW, New Bomb Turks, Digits, New Duncan Imperials, Mercy Rule and Dumpster Juice.

Ten years & Ten Thousand Beers

Ten years & Ten Thousand Beers

In rebuilding Axiompiercing.com, I came across a lot of history that I had written on the site. It's been a long trip down memory lane to be honest. Some great, some, well I'm glad are burried in the fading past. Lots of lost friends and forgotten times and for the most part bitter sweet.

 

It's a small magic little world after all.

It's a small magic little world after all.

Ok, It was a busy month and a few of you maybe interested but I doubt it. It all started off with a bang or should I say a Bang Sugar Bang. As they played Mary's with the return of the Chicken Hawks. BSB is one of the better bands I have been contacted by out of the blue and you should check them out. High energy, always touring good old fashion fun ass Punk Rock. Of course the Chicken Hawks have been pounding away for years and still can throw punches with the best of them. The hawks played a little short handed but still were worth the wait. What like 5 years?
