Smooth Move MTV, U2 and Berlin…and Ironic too

Have a free concert celibrating  the wall coming down 20 years ago but build a wall around the place to keep people from watching it for free..They should all shout “MTV!!  TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!!!” “MTV!!  TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!!!” “MTV!!  TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!!!”

excerpt:

Fans hoping to glimpse U2‘s free concert celebrating 20 years since the Berlin Wall fell were outraged Thursday to find that a 12-foot (3.6-meter) metal barrier was installed to block the view for those without tickets.

Both Berliners and tourists alike saw the irony in building a wall around a concert dedicated to the wall that has already come down.

(side note here from me the Editor) remember when MTV ruled the world? 24 hours of music videos. Our TV was never turned off… These days MTV sucks out loud. Should be called STV for “SUCK TV…

Stryper Review Wild Horse Saloon Oct 30th 2009

stryper_logo4

The guys are back in yellow and black and with all the original members.  Knock them for the message if you like but you got to give them credit, they have been around for 25 years now and while you and I will probably have to  punch in tomorrow they don’t. They all have new awesome outfits and looked like they were having the time of their lives on stage considering it was a tough crowd. They were  playing old school type heavy metal rock in a town known for being “country” and singing about Jesus in a bar. Now that’s a tough crowd but Stryper won them over. I over heard the guy that works in the bathroom that the liquor sales were way down but the place was packed out. According to my Friend David who was also there, its the largest crowd he has seen at the Wild Horse Saloon. Due to circumstances way beyond my control I unfortunately missed the first two bands and got there just in time to get in the meet and greet line to meet the guys in the band. They were polite and made sure they spoke and shook hands with everyone there.  They were unable to sign autographs so I didn’t get my album signed but I understand that’s the breaks. Maybe next time? Anyway, they rocked. I only caught one hiccup during the set and it was minor. They are tight and underrated as a band probably because of the “christian” thing but that’s alright. These days it takes guts to make a stand and stand they do.  Some of you may know that Michael Sweet is the new guest singer of Boston too, so they had a special guest sit in with them too. It was Kim Dahme of BOSTON!!!  They played “Piece of Mind”.

If you get a chance I recommend picking up or DL’ing Stryper’s lastest CD entitled “Murder by Pride”. I think you’ll be shocked. It’s better than most of the stuff I have heard coming out these days. Enjoy the photos, the Wild Horse had a “no flash photography” enforced policy so they made you turn the flash off on the cameras.

A few good “Jokes of the day” :)

Two Middle East mothers are sitting in the cafe chatting over a pint of goat’s milk. The older of the mothers pulls her bag out and starts flipping through pictures and they start reminiscing. “This is my oldest son Mohammed. He’s 24 years old now.” “Yes, I remember him as a baby,” says the other mother cheerfully. “He’s a martyr now though,” mum confides. “Oh, so sad dear,” says the other. “And this is my second son, Kalid. He’s 21.” “Oh, I remember him,” says the other happily, “he had such curly hair when he was born.” “He’s a martyr too,” says mum quietly. “Oh gracious me ….” says the other. “And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He’s 18,” she whispers. “Yes,” says the friend enthusiastically, “I remember when he first started school.” “He’s a martyr also,” says mum, with tears in her eyes. After a pause and a deep sigh, the second mother looks wistfully at the photographs and says… “They blow up so fast, don’t they? 😉

A barman was locking up the pub for the night when a tramp knocked at the door. When the barman opened the door the tramp asked for a tooth pick. The barman was confused but gave him one and carried on locking up. A short while later another tramp knocked on the door and also asked for a tooth pick, and the barman gave him one. As the barman was just about to leave, up came another tramp but his time he asked for a straw. By this time the barman thought he had to ask why.
He said to the tramp “How come the other two tramps asked for a tooth pick and you asked for a straw?”
The tramp replied “Someone’s been sick outside but all the good stuff is gone!”

HYPNOTIST AT THE SENIOR CENTER
It was entertainment night at the senior
center, and the Amazing Claude was topping the bill.
People came from miles around to see the famed
hypnotist do his stuff.
As Claude went to the front of the meeting
room, he announced, “Unlike most hypnotists who invite
two or three people up here to be put into a trance, I
intend to hypnotize each and every member of the
audience.”
The excitement was almost electric as Claude
withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his
coat. “I want each one of you to keep your eye on this
antique watch.
“It’s a very special watch. It’s been in my
family for six generations.”
He began to swing the watch gently back and
forth while quietly chanting, “Watch the watch, watch
the watch, watch the watch…”
The crowd was mesmerized as the watch swayed
back and forth, light gleaming off its polished
surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the
swaying watch until suddenly, it slipped from the
hypnotist’s fingers and fell to the floor, breaking
into a hundred pieces……………………..

“SHIT!” said the hypnotist…

It took three days to clean up the senior
center.
