Bananas at Gilman was almost single-handedly ruined by the Bananas best friend and worst enemy, who is a dangerous superfan that I shall not name here (you guys don't know him and I wouldn't want to embarass him too much if he should happen upon this entry). Next time Mike R. Mike is going to bring a set of handcuffs so that we can safely shackle him to something. This way, he can watch but he can't ruin the show by taking the mic away from Mike and/or tacking him periodically. By the end of the show the superfan was being held down by four different people, one on each limb. Oh yeah, and I hope some Phenomenauts fans read this so they will know that that band is the biggest bunch of jerks and total Ds ever. Way to drive a giant bus to your show in Berkeley when you live in Berkeley. Way to sell craploads of terrible looking merch plastered with your logo that is a weak ripoff of the Pixies logo. Way to have terrible songs about robots in space. Way to play forever even though the show was running late. Way to pull a rock star trip and rant at the poor Gilman guy about how the set up was unprofessional and how you don't do it for the money, you do it for the kids. Well, the Bananas are also in it for the kids, because the kids have the money, and you may have heard that first you get hard, then you get the money (too bad Dillon doesn't read heckasac). P.S. your website looks like shit, just like all your hideous merch.
I pussed out on going to the Alkali Flats but I heard it was really fun so I wish I had gone.
Champagne brunch on the Delta King was fucking fun and I highly recommend it. The "champagne" flows very freely and food was pretty darn good. And you are on a boat so you can say ahoy and pretend your food is asking you for permission to come aboard. I found out that the Delta King has a regular bar and I plan to go there a lot when the weather gets warmer. I think you can take your drinks outside.
