Writer's Block: Concert mania
What band are you dying to see live in concert that you've never seen before? Would you travel to a different city or state just to see them?

Skatt Bros.
At first, I thought it was a joke video by SCTV. Then, I thought it was a pro-gay group. But then I came to the horrible realization that these guys were serious.

Pricasso is a guy who paints pictures using his penis as a brush. I guess I seen somethin' every bit as stupefyin' as you'd seen in any of them other places. And in English , too. So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin' like the good Lord gypped me.

What Do You Have To Say? - Music: My First Favorite Band
What was the first band you became a fan of?
AC/DC.  A went over to John Raphael's house after school one afternoon and he had a copy of Highway to Hell on vinyl.  It was like nothing I'd ever heard before.

In flagrente delicto
I saw this story in the Fargo paper the other day, here's a brief summary and a link:

A Moorhead man and a Fargo woman were arrested early this morning after police received a report that people were having sex in public. Nathan Ross Blair, 24, and Chandra Schaefer, 20, were arrested after police received a report about 3:13 a.m. that a man in a black kilt was exposing himself and receiving a sexual act from a woman on a sidewalk in the 1000 block of University Drive, according to police dispatch logs.


Amusing, yes. But when I got to the bottom of the story I found the best part. They published these poor saps' mug shots!

But it gets better. In the news today, there's an update! I'm bolding the most exciting additional information, because I care about you dear reader.

A Moorhead man scheduled to be married today was arrested early Friday morning for having sex in a public place while wearing a kilt, and with a woman other than his fiancée. Police found Blair and Schaefer intertwined near a pine tree after a friend pointed them out to police officers responding to the complaints. All three were walking home when Blair and Schaefer told their friend to keep walking. She turned around to see them having sex on the hood of a car, she told police. When police shined a flashlight on the pair, Blair turned around and looked at the officer but continued having sex with Schaefer until the officer ordered him to stop.

The intrepid reporter was quite busy on the phone:
When called a second time and read a copy of the police report, he said he did not wish to comment on whether what it said was untrue.

“I’m sorry I even said that before I talked with my lawyer, and I shouldn’t have even said anything,” he said.

When asked if he was still getting married today, Blair said “goodbye” and hung up the phone.

When reached Friday, Schaefer said what she was accused of was not true, but she did not care, before saying she had no comment and hanging up.

Attempts to reach the fiancée were unsuccessful.

John Prine said it best. It's a big ol' goofy world.

Honey, have you been to DC lately?
A hate crime? You decide...

WASHINGTON - On a narrow, leafy street in Northwest Washington, where Prius hybrid cars and Volvos are the norm, one man bought a flashy gray Hummer that was too massive to fit in his garage.

So he parked the seven-foot-tall behemoth on the street in front of his house and smiled politely when his eco-friendly neighbors looked on in disapproval at his "dream car."

It lasted five days on the street before two masked men took a bat to every window, a knife to each 38-inch tire and scratched into the body: "FOR THE ENVIRON."

Another neighbor, Lani Fremaux, 58, ...said... "I consider this a hate crime."

Stupidity, alive and well in South Fargo
And here I thought the level of criminal mischief in Fargo would have decreased once my friends and I graduated from college...

Two Fargo men who attempted to cut down a tree in South Fargo last night were arrested and now face possible charges of criminal mischief.

Scott Huson, 25, and Michael Scott, 25, both of 1515 23rd St. S., couldn’t find any downed trees from Monday night’s wind to use for firewood so they found a tree they believed was on public property, said Lt. Pat Claus.

The men believed because they paid taxes the tree belonged to them, Claus said.

The tree was actually on private property in a condominium development.

A resident in the development reported the incident, located on the 2300 block of Demores Drive.

The men appeared to be intoxicated and were in possession of a saw and hatchet, Claus said.

Damage to the approximately 25-foot tall maple tree was estimated at about $1,000, and the 12-inch diameter thick trunk is cut through almost half way, Claus said.

The tree will likely be removed.

Up from the depths, 30 stories high!
Much like Godzilla rising out of the ocean, wreaking havoc across the land and then fleeing, I have decided to update my livejournal again! Huzzah!

First, a heartwarming tale from November 8 of a student athlete (we'll call her Windy Hager) who finished in the top 25% of all runners at some local yokel track meet. Like a good track star, she gives all the credit to her coach, Brenton Wuchae. "“He’s very encouraging. He’s always telling us how proud he is,” the South Brunswick sophomore said. “I’m proud of where I finished but he seems to be even more proud of me. He’s always been encouraging. That’s what makes him a great coach. He’s always motivated us; he’s always out there helping us.” Hager said her experience at the state meet has given her specific goals for next season, goals she feels are within her grasp."

Fast forward to July 5. What, wha?!?

All those fan letters I wrote finally paid off
LONDON - The Spice Girls announced Thursday that they have agreed to reunite for 11 concerts around the world in December and January.

They will be the group's first concerts since it broke up in 2001, and the first with all five original members since Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell quit to pursue a solo career in 1998.

The group said shows would be in Los Angeles on Dec. 7, Las Vegas on Dec. 8 , New York on Dec. 11, London on Dec. 15, Cologne on Dec. 20, Madrid on Dec. 23, Beijing on Jan. 10, Hong Kong on Jan. 12, Sydney on Jan. 17, Cape Town on Jan. 20 and Buenos Aires on Jan. 24.

Halliwell, 34, appeared with Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, 33, Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisholm, 33, Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton, 31, and Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, 32, to pose for photos and announce tour plans.

"We wanted to say thank you to our fans. It just feels very right for us," Chisholm said.

The group's first single, "Wannabe," was released in 1996 and was followed by a string of No. 1 hits.

But their last album, "Forever," released in 2000 and without Halliwell, fared poorly.

I believe that we'll be taking our girls to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3 this weekend as part of their birthday treat. I found this (approximately 5 minute) video review of the movie to be hilarious and fairly spot on. And I won't even get to enjoy any popcorn...

That's gonna leave a mark...
JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A gang stripped a South African man before supergluing him to an exercise bicycle while they ransacked his house, according to a report Thursday.
SAPA news agency said the attackers, dressed in suits, hijacked a man in his 50s and forced him at gunpoint to take them to his home in Johannesburg.

"The victim was then forced to strip, after which he was superglued to the seat of an exercise bicycle, his hands were superglued, as were his feet and then his mouth was superglued shut," SAPA quoted Mark Stokoe, a spokesman for emergency services Netcare 911, as saying.

The man was rescued about three hours later when his partner arrived home, SAPA said.

South Africa is battling one of the world's highest crime rates which has prompted concerns that violence might mar the 2010 soccer World Cup, which the country is due to host.

A police spokesman could not immediately comment on the report. No one at Netcare 911 could be reached.
