tour photos


5/9/08 The Bananas
Originally uploaded by azzface

I have been diligently combing through flickr and have determined that the only bananas photos posted from tour are from the shows in New York. Are they the hardest working band in showbiz? Quite possibly. At first I was stoked that this azzface guy posted these photos, but as I combed through the many, many photos, culling the best for you I realized he/she is one of those annoying people who take 6.2 million flash photos during a set. C'mon kids, the digital revolution is cool and all, but you need to limit your photo taking to about 5-10 photos per set.

For small shows, first two songs only. Then put cameras down and enjoy the damn music. Never a flash; 1600 speed film is suffice.

All those pix of the Bananas and no Smitty to be found? Perhaps we've discovered who azzface is. Or maybe he was off somewheres saying, "Mein Fuss! Mein Fuss!"

I think it better to take pictures later in the set when the band is all crazy and sweaty.

Oh wait, just have them stand outside today.

I wish it was the gout. Mike and Marie gave me a ride to the ER in DC. They took an xray of my foot, my chest, gave me an MRI and did an ultrasound of my leg. Ruled out gout, broken toe, and deep vein thrombosis. It's a mystery infection and they gave me antibiotics and oxycontin.

In Chattanooga, a cute girl came up, hugged me and said "thanks for playing Chattanooga". I said I wasn't in the Bananas, I was just selling their stuff. She said she knew that and that she heard about my mustache a week ago and that it lived up to her expectations.

I don't believe they gave you oxycontin for an infected foot. You'll have to prove it to me by giving me one.

It hurt more than when I had a broken collarbone, but less than when I broke my wrist. Still bad enough to go to ER on tour.

Oxy, when in pain, didn't make me loopy. I took one in the car which did make me loopy the first time, but not the 2nd time. I'm pretty good at ignoring pain so I quit taking them. I don't know why people get addicted to pills -- it's not scotch.

I still have most of the script left. I just like to drink and I don't even do that much anymore since it makes it even harder to remember nouns.

May 9th, Smitty was El Mercho. That's why you can't see his dick broom.
