"The first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it." -- Abbie Hoffman
I wanted to post on Friday but I was too hungover to accomplish that goal. The reason for this sad state was that Thursday night was the first ever Schaller family father-son bonding excursion. We went to the Wellington drank beer and played darts. I enjoy playing darts, which is probably why I do it 3 to 4 times a week. However even with my large amounts of practice and dad claiming he had not played in 30 some odd years, he still managed to kick my ass. He claims I let him win, but well, no. The darts and drinks were good but the real highlight of the evening was the stories he told. I will share one of my favorites. For those of you who know the Broad Ripple area, you know about Hardwicke's Tobacco Shop. Let me tell you a story about Hardwicke's. You see, Hardwicke's was originally owned by a guy named Tony the Bong. Tony was married to his wife, Betty Long Nipple. As if that is not funny enough, Tony the Bong sells Hardwicke's to a buddy of my dad's named Mike Morran so he can move to Amsterdam with his wife and make porn flicks. Now my friends, that is a good story. We are now having regularly scheduled Father-Son 6 o'clock on Tuesdays for more darts, beer, and stories. Do not fear I will keep the good stories posted.
Now in honor of some friends up north I have decided to change Band of the Day into DJ of the day. Amanda and Brandon, you guys should like this. Oh, Amanda is also right about the Cheat pulling off a gold tooth. For those of you who do not know about the Cheat please check him out on the link to Homestar Runner. Good shit. Today's DJ of the Day is that crazy German Sven Vath. When you need some crazy hard tech and still want the dance floor hoppin, he does a pretty alright job. Some of you may remember that the picture above was taken at Sven's set at Red No Five in Chicago on November 2 of last year. Red No Five also has my favorite bathrooms in Chi-town. I strongly recommend them. Matt and Brandon can vouch for this as well. If you want to check out some Sven on disk if you can find a copy of the set from Crobar, it comes highly recommended. I have no idea where you would get that though. Ok that's a lie. If you just want to run to the store pick up any one of his 2 disc "In the Mix" set's done like from Cocoon's Amnesia night in Ibiza. Hope you like hard hitting, unrelenting beats. Until tomorrow keep those heads bobbin...
