- It was the second night in our
new midtown home. It is still clearly a new
environment that we are still getting used to.
Parking, eating, sound, timing, cleaning,egress,
etc are all still issues that we have to both
improve on and get used to.
- It is going to take
extraordinary efforts on many people's parts to
cozy ourselves into our newly furnished den.
Scott has certainly put forth and is a proud pup
for it. I wish it was mine. I glad I feel like it
- Jonathan certainly deserves a a big hand.
Dwarfed by the mighty urban jungle, he roamed the
unsettling neighborhood, to the north, south,
east and west. The freak prevailed on his trek
yet only to temp Deadstein's insatiable thirst.
Nevertheless, it is worthy of special
- In addition, the Freak brought
his own little freak Kwok Ming from that
financial institution from the far east. He
stayed for a few songs starting with the Mama and
shared some oranges for good luck.
- We all put our collective
minds together to figure out how to technically
put a PA system together. I first collective
brain trust for Deadstein. Let's hope it all
works out. I don't see why it shouldn't.
- I'm counting on this system to
start to elevate us a bit toward taming our
sound. Maybe with Kevin's freaking out by the
vortex enabled Deadstein, it will to a
recognition that you don't have to create a storm
to enable a climate.
- Kevin placed his bass amp in
front of the drums and played directly in front
of his amp and the drums. At first it freaked him
out. He tried to run. Then he got used to it.
Then it really freaked him out. Being at the
brewing center of a circular Deadstein is almost
- We will improve and hone our
sound starting next week. Well maybe not next
week. I'm sure the Wild Freaky Pos is not the
calm blue sky I am talking about. Kevin's going
- I think the marker board
worked really well during the Jed.
- The Tennessee Jed was very
good. I feel it was our first good song at WWI.
It had tough and power at the right time. I think
it was during the Jed that Kevin was in the Eye
of the Storm, floating on a cool breeze.
- The Miracle was the force with
the raptor screams that almost blew him off his
- The Transition into the Love
Each Other never happened. It was a song without
a groove because it was traversed by too many.
- Mama moved but not smoothly.
- It was our first Cosmic
Charlie ever and one of the best songs of the
night. Scott has been calling for this song for a
little while now and he found the write up on the
Net so we had no excuse not to play it. Well,
Kevin had an excuse since had never heard it
before. It worked really well and was cool.
- Let It Grow was windy,
blustery and just a wild storm to ride. I liked
it a lot.
- Deal was cut a bit short
because of the Gyros II we were all eagerly
waiting to bite into with the arrival of the
nomadic Freak Boy.
- We thought the Freaky delivery
boy came back with the Hellenic Jewels. Instead
we got a Trojan Horse, so our fearless Ulysses
was on his merry way. Instead getting this
claymation example of slop that you get from the
place that does it Greek style, the Freak Boy veered
off course to a beautiful site in Time Square.
Bright lights, commercialism and food in the
style of the red, white and blue. A restaurant
that reeks of Americana proved to all of us that
us Yankees have nothing to be embarrassed about
when it comes to fine cuisine. It is tough to get
a better meal. Jonathan spotted this place a mile
away and knew it would be right for us. I have a
feeling that Deadstein and Stardust Dine-O-Mat
are going to have a great relationship.
- The Stardust Dine-O-Mat proved
to be a worthy adversary for Deadstein's
ferocious appetite. As a matter of fact, the
burger was so beefy, it did Scott in. The place
was cheap yet the quality we were looking for.
They used ample quantities of salt so everthing
had all of their flavors coming out.
- A BLT that was triple
deckered, toasted beautifully and loaded with
bacon for $4.25 is a true treasure.
- Fries and gravy that are well
done round out a nice place to pig out. I'm
looking forward to more. Gyro, Schmyro!
- I was wrong about the dessert.
I posted the menu so check it out and get you
- There was just a
slight sense of warmth. It was comfortable in
there and I assume for the most part, weather
will not be a factor in this place.
