GWAR is for Everyone

It was a weekend for fine performance art, with a Saturday night outing to Crack, and then a Sunday night concert at the 9:30 Club for like my sixth witnessing of GWAR. GWAR always guarantees a life-affirming experience replete with body fluids and good clean Americana, up there on my list with Norman Rockwell and Disney family classics. A first on my list was seeing a cute young heavy metal gay couple who were snuggling throughout the whole concert. I told them they were cute. It was a good vision of the future to see gay kids enjoying something outside the usual fare offered to the ghettoized urban experience.

Some more pictures from November's trip to North and South Carolina, taken by photographic genius BlogStar Brettie. Here's me establishing first contact with intelligent life at an Exxon station:

I'm street like that:
We stopped at South of the Border, which was a cinderblock hell of tourist flotsam and jetsam. Here's me and Chip atop the Giant Sombrero:
Sombrero Gurls
Tech genius Piranha Sean tore himself away from his busy social life to help me diagnose my printer/computer problem. With a simple deselection of the 'Pause Printing' option he restored my computer's ability to connect to my printer. He is a frikkin' computer wizard!

The quote from the weekend goes to Carl, who stated, "Dating this time of year is like HR: nobody's hiring in December."

South of the Border is a fun place. Tacky and fun for all :-) I love going there when we drive down to FLorida.

" It was a good vision of the future to see gay kids enjoying something outside the usual fare offered to the ghettoized urban experience."

Yeah about that. It still amazes me that people are surprised that there are gays who listen to heavy metal or punk or goth.
I still get looks from folks when they see me in my Danzig shirts or find out I listen to the likes of KITTIE or Misfits. (my MP3 player is filled with various music from the "darkside")

Of course it makes me quite happy to see more and more gays being more open about their likes of metal and punk instead of falling for the trap of they must listen to this type of music and not the other.

Not all the gays listen to Cher or techno/disco stuff. Some of us like Metallica, Ozzy and Type-O Negative.

Isn't there a constitutional amendment banning GWAR?

My siblings and I used to love seeing and counting all of the signs announcing the "border' while driving south. Its a tacky but fun place. Not mention racist as hell.

Wish I could have gone to Gwar with you, but of course, I had to work! I love South Of The Border. But, then, I am kind of tacky myself. That could be why.

In Finland, groups like GWAR are invited for tea with the President. If they win the Eurovision song contest.

I love GWAR...they are a bunch of gamers, or at least the pit slaves are...:)...!
