Stoppage Time

Stoppage Time

A Band?
Did you know that I am in a band? Neither did I. But, Ink and Stone has apparently put together some sort of surf rock band, and apparently, I’m one of the guitarists. “Does Los even play guitar,” you may ask. Actually, I do … well, I try at least. I’ve been practicing on acoustic guitar for about 8 months now, basically doing an online training. I’m a very long way away from being part of any legitimate band, but I like where Ink and Stone is going with the picture he made. Maybe this will motivate me to learn other songs besides “When the Saints Come Marching In.”

Notes to Self:

• Don’t sweat the petty things … and don’t pet the sweaty things.
• You don’t sing better in the shower, even though you think you do.
• Drinking beer does not make you smarter.

Stupid Karl Joke of the Week:“Why don’t you want to go to Chick-Fil-A … chicken?”

Quote of the Week:
"I'm so white, I create problems on dance floors." I had to go to the archives for this one, because I don’t remember any funny quotes from any of my friends … slackers. I said this doozy in March, well, because it’s true. I can do the Mick Jagger dance … and that’s about it.

Why can't white, straight guys dance? Is there a gene missing or sumthin'?

Lovely album. Excellent. When will it hit ebay's bargain bin?

Los said...

Steph - Not sure why we can't dance. I do know that the drunker I get, the better I think I dance.

Chrsitina - So far, no major record companies have contacted us, but we are waiting patiently.

Excuse me...

As a straight white guy who can dance, and makes part of his living making other people dance, I am here to make it clear.

The problem with many white guys who venture out onto the dance floor is that they try to do too much. And when you try to do too much, disaster follows.

Quite honestly, the most I ever learned about dancing was in fact watching a dance floor with nothing but black people. And what I noticed is that everyone on the dance floor was just grooving. They weren't trying to impress anyone. They stayed in their area and felt the music and moved to it. Sure, some were doing more, but they were in control the whole time. It's all about being in control and feeling the music.

A novice white guy will lose control immediately, then disaster and often hilarity ensues. Throw lots of booze into the mix and it goes up. I've seen it a million times at my weddings.

That's the kind of photo that ends up on The Smoking Gun.

Men Dancing Badly: this might be related to you liking "It's Raining Men."
