I LIKE STUFF, HE LIKES STUFF, THAT'S COOL

In an amazing turn of events, MTV's fantastic show, "Room Raiders," has ventured out of Bergen County, NJ and into Miami tonight! Oh joy! Karen are you on top of this?

I went to see Dennis' new band The Sons of Sound. Holy shit! Run, do no walk, to their next show. As soon as I find out when it is, i'll post it here. Watching their set tonight was like seeing a combination of Muse and Secret Machines with a slight disco punk beat. Truely fantastic. The songs are there, the sound is there, everything was there. Shockingly, I think it's something like their 2nd show as a full band. Dennis used to be the lead singer of the Realistics, and his new band is nothing like it, so don't show up expecting that sort of thing.

J'adore le Family Guy. So should you. Now you can buy Family Guy action figures. This is so much awesome.

Growing up my brother Lawrence was a huge fan of Andrew Dice Clay. I must say, the dude is still awesome.

Also, one of my friendsters/slight internet crushes, Ollie, has a band in LA called The Ooh Las. I've never met Ollie in person, but I always thought she looked really pretty in photos. So when I found out she had a band I was pretty suprised and eager to hear what they sound like. Low and behold, she sounds a bit like Kim Deal and I was quite impressed. Anyway, her band is looking for drummer, so if you're a drummer in LA please check this out.

So, since this blog is about my sobriety (or more often, lack there of, I figured that I'd share that tonight I didn't have one drop of alcohol. Impressed? Didn't think so. Earlier in the night, I was debating going over to Filter 14 for the Girls & Boys reunion party which is happening right now and probably off the hook. But I am exhausted. I need sleep, no alcohol, and nothing else in my body that doesn't belong there. This weekend is Siren Festival so I will probably be unable to walk straight for the next week. Viva being drunk beyond retardation!

OK, this post was boring. No personality. Sorry. Hopefully you found out about some cool bands and stuff!

Urgh. Seeing that Room Raiders in Miami reminded me of why I hate living here and how all the people are gross clones.

Was invited to the Sons of Sounds show last night, but got a better deal: Prince at the Garden, with Morris Day and the Time opening up, and Sheila E and Maceo Parker jamming with the band. I'm not an arena gig guy anymore, but this show just blew me away. Acoustic versions of "Cream" and "Little Red Corvette?" To die for.

I go to University of Miami and half of the idiot frat kids down there have been on MTV shows...we won't mention the Pauly Shore encounters at Spring Break- but that's another story in itself.

It's like the UM claim to fame is being on Dismissed....not that I watch that so I'd know........

I totally did the same thing yesterday. This morning I said to my friend, "So, I didn't drink at all yesterday. I did nothing but go to bed at a reasonable hour."

You know what she said? "Don't lie."

*gasp* My finer feelings are hurt.

My two biggest gripes about Room Raiders:

1. Half the time, the dude is critiquing the girl's PARENTS' house. "Whoa ... nice chandelier ... she must be classy!" WTF?
2. When the guy is going through the three girls' underwear drawers ("Pink thong ... I like that!") -- isn't that just creepy?

The whole show is creepy.

Of course that's why it's addictive like crack.

I'm happy to hear someone can curb their drinking every once in a while.
Even though I give advice, I should really start taking some of my own advice and lay off the schnapps.
Don't even get me started on dating shows.

Have you seen "Wanna Come In"?

This is the best new show on MTV. They get these adorable dorky boys to go out on dates with beautiful women while their friends are on a van trying to get them to ask the women questions or do things. The more of these things the boys can do, the more money they win. AND if the girl invites them in they win the big money.

I'm entranced by Dancing!Paris. She's moving just slightly slower than normal... I suppose it's what the world looks like through her low-IQ/painkiller haze.

Oh, c'mon. You've heard her talk. Painkillers, people, and lots of them.

It's fun to listen to the Ooh La La's while watching the dancing Paris Hilton.

I know I might be a bit biased...but I loved today's Room Raiders Miami episode...it originally aired July 12th. And its not just because I'm on it...it's the funniest episode I've seen.
