SLT in Bensalem tomorrow

Hello my friends,

Scars Like These has a show tomorrow night in Bensalem, PA. I’ve actually never been up there. It’s also a far drive from where we are coming from. However, it should be a good time. We are playing with those guys Old Fezziwig, who were the main band when Terminal Frost did its one and only show. I bet the guy might remember me, and be all surprised to see me in Scars, haha. We will see. I’m definitely stoked. I like when we do shows on Saturday nights. Even better, I don’t even need to bring my kit except maybe a part or two.
What’s also odd is that between this show coming up and the last one, we haven’t practiced at all. But we fucking killed it the last 2 shows, and I am disappointed in not coming across any pictures or footage! Well except these pics with Frank from LowBrau Bastards, but where am I? D’oh!

So anyway, it’ll be fun. I’ll be putting more stuff up soon.

Updates July

Hello friends,

I didn’t really get around to posting about the July 8 and July 14 Scars Like These shows, but that will be up soon.

Also, the Scorsese movie reviews are still happening. I made it up to Last Temptation of Christ and its still a lot to write.
I also plan to write an In Memoriam for the great George Romero RIP. I feel bad that I didn’t get around to doing it for Bill Paxton. But ya never know! I’ve been trying very hard to get back into writing. It hasn’t been easy with work and the band. I always wind up apologizing to my own blog!

Well anyways, that’s going on and my 32nd birthday coming up. Damn I feel old.

More posts soon my friends!!

Scars back at The Tusk tonight

Hello friends,

Finally another show. We are going back to The Tusk on South Street again tonight. This time we are playing first and not last. The weeks prior to tonight’s show have been very rough. We’ll see what happens!
After this show, we got a show back at Bar XIII in Wilmington, DE where my first show was. Can’t wait.
More posts to follow. 🙂

At the bar

So we did our covers and such. I thought the show was great despite people leaving towards the end. Now we are on a break until July 8 when we The Tusk on South St. again. In the meanwhile on this break, we’ve been working on new material, and I gotta tell ya, it’s sounding great.

To be continued.

 

Scars at the Tusk, and Scars Tonight

Of course I fucked up and couldn’t find enough time to put my review of the Scars Like These show at the Tusk.
Well here it is:
We got to Wooly Mammoth’s on South St. and let me tell you, it has been awhile since I’ve been to South Street. I forgot it was almost the equivalent of NYC’s 42nd St. in its heyday.
But yea, interesting show. Not as much equipment to bring like last time, which was nice. But we had to go up and down the steps many, many times (The Tusk is upstairs at Wooly Mammoth’s).
The other bands playing seemed heavier and more in the vein of metal – my kinda crowd. Still, not a lot of people but I will tell you the bar setting was really nice, and there were couches around and a decent stage if you want to call it a stage.
Despite the small crowd and the last minute decision of covering “The Cro-Mags – We Gotta Know” again, we got to debut our new song, “S.L.T.”.
The response was great. We got a couple people dancing to it. That made me feel good. Unfortunately, I don’t think any pictures were taken, but there were some video clips filmed that I still haven’t seen yet.

Okay, so tonight marks the 5th show with this band. It’s at RP McMurphy’s on MacDade Blvd, which isn’t far from where I live. It’s a Sunday night, but we’ll see what happens. Its a benefit show we are doing for a friend who will be joining us on stage later in the show. This will be very interesting.

Sorry for the lack of updates, guys. Its been very busy, but after this show there won’t be another one for a while. This will give me time to write more blog entries for the future. I got a lot of movies I want to review.
Keep checking.

SLT May 5 Liberty Show

Hey guys,

Sorry for the lateness on this one. The show was a hell of a time. The place was super dirty but it didn’t matter, we had a killer longer than usual set. My dad made a surprise visit, and I got to hang with some cool peeps that were friends with the band. The Cotton Candy Circus girls and the fire jugglers were amazing and super talented – an excellent addition!
Some footage exists somewhere. But plenty of pics. Check it!

Movie Reviews

For some reason it’s hard for me to write movie reviews. I want to post as many as I can to this page for all of you to read. However at the same time I feel like my reviews would be too cliche of a reading for people that like the movie I’m reviewing.  So I am trying to edit the ones I have written now, and making sure my sometimes humorous commentary is all there. It won’t always be super critical, unless I personally dislike the picture and really want to just rant on it. If I get really into it, I always feel people are going to start arguing over what I say, so I may have to disable comments in case elitist trolls come in to defend their opinions.

Well anyway, as far as movie reviews on this page go, I wanted to put up my review of every Martin Scorsese film in honor of Taxi Driver‘s 40th anniversary. However, time has passed, and I am not done all the reviews. Its more like New York, New York‘s 40th anniversary at this point :\ They will be coming soon, I am up to his 90’s movies at the moment. But if I post each movie of his one at a time and not all at once, this may work.
I still haven’t seen Vinyl Season 1 pilot yet, or Silence. So I still got ways to go yet.
Keep checking back!

SLT show from last week

Hello my friends,

I wanted to give you guys an update on the latest. If you remember from the last blog entry, I was hyping over the Scars Like These show with our friends Lucid by Midnight at the Rusty Nail on Apr 15.

Well we did the show, and it turned out okay. Due to the Easter weekend, there wasn’t many in the crowd, other than the other bands and some of their friends.  I still managed to meet some cool people, like Leah from Lucid by Midnight, who had been the previous bass player for SLT! Their drummer Mike was also very chill and he helped me out with some drum parts i forgot to bring to the show. I’ll never forget little things like that.

The first 2 bands were very decent, but again hardly any crowd. My bandmate, Psyko Mike described nights like this as “rehearsal night”. That is definitely what it felt like.

We were the third to go on, and from where I was playing at, I couldn’t hear super well. So what I did hear is what I played to. The PA system was fucked and you couldn’t hear the vocals very well.  According to my Uncle Bruce who was in the audience (he did voices in some of my animated movies if you remember) , the guitar amps weren’t as loud as the drums and bass. Oh well, we still played everything in time, and I could tell it was tight despite the sound problems.

The guy Matt who designed the album cover came to see us, and I met him for the first time. He thought we sounded great. He could hear beyond those sound probs haha

But overall, good time. It was another learning experience.  I seriously can’t wait for the next show which is going to be in less than 2 weeks today, on Fri May 5. Will keep you all posted 🙂

If you haven’t heard us already, check out our Facebook and add us !

Till next time !
