Sucked Dry, But Hopeful



Yeah, school is sucking me dry. Kicking my ass around the block several times until I beg for mercy and then it bodyslams me and walks away laughing. But......it's over for a month on December 8. I'd forgotten what the feeling of semester break anticipation felt like. It's a big fat oaf of a party buddy, goading you on to put down your books and come to a kegger. I'm trying really hard right now to not listen to him and to just finish my work when I really want to run like hell and drink from the keg tap.

Even better than school being over, and the ultimate and perfect school's out/Christmas celebration is that El Vez is doing his Merry Mexmas show the day after I finish. I am giddy with excitement because El Vez's shows are always the most fun, positive experiences you could ever dream of having. What's better than an Elvis impersonator? El Vez! So, I just have to hang in there for two more weeks and then my Christmas can begin.

Beth, He'll be in Atlanta tomorrow night! Go! It is a blast!

I'm going to see The New York Dolls that night, but maybe we'll end the evening with El Vez. There's a 20-percent chance that I'll be in Chicago the El Vez weekend, so if I make it up there .............

And I think you should stay drunk and stupid during the Christmas break.

My co-best friend Andreas has been touting El Vez since he first saw him while going to law school in San Diego. Did you know that El Vez was one of the members of the eighties latino punk group The Zeroes? Or that he had to learn Spanish?

Where is he playing?

Yup-er-doodle, Johnny Yen. Again, I am a fountain of useless crap! But El Vez rocks!

Dale, El Vez will be in Toronto at the Legendary Horseshoe something or other on the 7th. I recommend with a big thumbs up. Everyone needs a little El Vez.

Oh my god-- I've been to the Horseshoe! My friend Dan (the one in today's post) saw a Black Sabbath Cover band there on a road trip to Toronto in 1987.

It's going to be ok.....

I'll see if I can make it Tenacious S. I haven't been to the Horseshoe in years and years. What could be better than cheap beer and Black Sabbath cover bands?

I hope the upcoming semester break allows you more time to enjoy The Official Site Of Grant Miller.
