Latest Journal Entry: COLD WAVES II MUSIC FESTIVAL April 10, 2013, 11:32pm
Profile:Wow where to begin...I guess that I would say that I think I'm alot cooler than I look but not as cool as you would think I would be in my position. It almost seems that I have to live two seperate lives sometimes. The first being my "day job" personna that wears a tie to work everyday and is up on the latest fasions and clothing labels. I work about 6 days a week with the equivilent of a 60 hr work week. The second being a person who is entirely into Music, especially seeing it live, as well as collecting it. (As a note I am strictly against the burning and copying of music and my personal cd collection is over 3400 titles strong.) I have gone on tour with/or road tripped with System of a Down, Apoptygma Berzerk, Monster Magnet, Beborn Beton, PTI,Rob Zombie and many others and I would guess that I have easily seen about 450-500 shows in my lifetime. It is very difficult trying to make these 2 lives balance and I have lost friends, family,cars, and girlfriends over some of these decisions. I guess that is what drives my passion for the music even more. I will mainly use this site as a outlet for label updates,what shows I've seen, What music I have bought, industrial scene reports and whatever else I may think would be worth checking out. As a side note my pics are all way outdated and boring and due to a much healthier lifestyle (basically means more whiskey than beer) have managed to drop about 40 lbs in 3 months so I'm working on some more "current pics" so stay tuned Here is a quick list of some of the shows that I have promoted/Booked: 07-18-03 “WTII MINIFEST” at underground lounge w/ Manufactura, Micronaut, Monstrum Sepsis 07-19-03 WTII MINIFEST” at Bottom Lounge w/Cut Rate Box, HMB, Trigger10d, and Ste of the Union 10-26-04 Bottom Lounge w/Jute, Terminal Bliss, Trigger10d and Tragic Vitality 05-14-05 Underground Lounge w/Maggot Twat, Gothsicles, and Tragic Vitality 03-12-06 Darkroom w/Atomica Project and Trigger10d 05-14-06 Darkroom w/Stromkern, Monstrum Sepsis, Point of Reflection and Mind Flux Funeral 07-30-06 Darkroom w/Trigger10d, Swampsugar and Amy Gloria 08-13-06 Darkroom w/Iscintilla, Mankind is obsolete and New Fangled Black 09-17-06 Darkroom w/PTI, Crucifrom Injection and Stochastic Theory 10-22-06 Darkroom w/Atomica , Salva Me and Bounte 10-28-06 Subterranean w/Android Lust and sid maudlin 11-19-06 Darkroom w/Cyanotic, Apocalypse Theatre, and Jilt 12-17-06 Darkroom w/ Thanatos, and Swampsugar 01-21-07 Darkroom w/URN, Sensuous enemy and my alibi 02-25-07 Darkroom W/Voltaire, terminal bliss and Sonikore 03-11-07 Darkroom w/Caustic, Defcon and Nerve Exhibit 04-02-07 Darkroom w/Jilt and MindFluxFuneral 05-26-07 Kinetic Playground w/Marazene, Jilt, Lockjaw, CTMB, Cyanotic and Mind Flux Funeral (co-promoted) 06-03-07 Darkroom w/ Flutter and Voodoo Organist, The new Loud 06-14-07 Darkroom w/ Bounte, Lismore and Corporate X 07-01-07 Kinetic Playground with C/A/T/, Endif, and P155 07-22-07 Darkroom w/Stromkern, oxime, P155, Mind Flux Funeral, and cyanotic 08-26-07 Darkroom w/Lockjaw, 48sin and Manufraqture 09-30-07 Darkroom w/ Lusties,Gothsicles, Maggot Twat and sensuous enemy 10-14-07 Darkroom w/Y-Luk-O, Defcon and Rein[forced] 10-21-07 Double Door w/ Acumen Nation, Cyanotic and Dj?

Likes:Lots of interests I guess....mainly music of all genres, Chicago sports teams (excluding the Cubs!!), James Bond films, IRL (Indy Racing League), Bad Horror Films, Fashion,Lots of roadtrips and seeing as much as humanly possible, oh Beer and Jameson's Whiskey
Dislikes:I'm not real big on people who are totally judgemental- As many of you will see I have retired most of my "gothic" clothing but still love the lifestyle and music. And despite my "fashion sense" or lack there of still play a "major" part in the industrial scene in chicago and the midwest as a mover and shaker- Many many years ago what drew me to the "industrial/gothic" club scene is that people WERENT judgemental and they didnt care what you wore,where you worked or went to school.....As much as our scene is now about the fashion it is still based on all of our love for the great music and how we all fight against the conformity that is pop culture/mtv/top 40 radio etc etc. Don't be a sheep and let people hand feed to you what to eat/drink/watch/listen to-Be your own judge and walk your own path
Favorite Music:Just about everything but really into the following: Jesus and Mary Chain (I eat, sleep, walk, talk, shit, f&ck,to all things JAMC), Guns and Roses, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, David Bowie,Airiel,Brian Eno,Star, I'm from Barcelona, Lismore, Nick Cave, Wire, Flutter,Leonard Cohen, Magazine, Can,PWEI,Walking Bicycles,Lush,Talking Heads,Deadstar assembly,Mindfluxfuneral,SuperFurryAnimals,Figdish,Fear Factory,Velvet Underground, Lou Reed,the Verve,Curve,Fleetwood Mac,Backyard Babies,BRMC,KMFDM,Atomica, RevCo, Caustic, C/A/T, Tiamat,Warlocks,Stromkern,Deals gone Bad,Sade,Skinny Puppy,LCD soundsystem,Goldfrapp,Ministry,The Stars,Belle and Sebastian,Nine Inch Nails, Tears,Pulp,Apoptygma Berzerk,PTI,Spiritualized,Peter Murphy, TKK,16 Volt, Acumen Nation/DJ Acucrack,the monkees,Sister Machine Gun,the Aarks, La Floa Maldita,Ash,Marilyn Manson,Placebo,Kill Hannah,Slayer,Monster Magnet,Oasis,Blur,I Scintilla, My Ruin,Brian Jonestown Massacre,Ministry,Neil Diamond,Grigori 3,Genghis Tron,Suede,MachineHead,Primal Scream,Gary Numan,Gang of Four, Meat Beat Manifesto, Coal Chamber,Shiny Toy Guns,Stabbing Westward,Tragic Vitality,the Replacements, Marah,Monstrum Sepsis,Depeche mode,the Kinks,Aztec Camera, Jim Croce,Love and Rockets,Oomph,Lacuna Coil, Laibach, Echo and the bunnymen, Kraftwerk,Iggy Pop,Rasputina, Goldfrapp,Stone roses,The Stars, The Countdown,Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine,Rob/White Zombie,Ravenettes,Iron Maiden, and any type of feedback driven noises whether in a grocery store, airport or plain old white noise, etc etc so as you can see I'm very confused and why I can't maintain relationships??
