Back in Key West

We just returned from another fantastic stint in Key West Florida. We played the late night slot at The Hogs Breath and during the Gumbay Fest at Blue Heaven
This past week was the beginning of Fantasy Fest down in Key West which is their annual bacchanal event akin to Mardi Gras and Carnivale. There were a lot of women walking around in nothing but body paint and men walking around in nothing but g-strings and a sack for their junk. Sounds like good people watching but some of these people should not have been so scantily clad. But I guess you have to take the good with the bad.
While down there we did a live radio show on KONKAM radio. They told us there would be an archive on their website but that does not look functional. I will put an MP3 copy on our websites soon.
Mark and KC are street performers who do a show every evening on Mallory Square that coincides with the sun set. Everyone goes to Mallory Square to watch the sun go down. It is quite beautiful. So with that as the back drop street performers from acrobats to musicians do their shows and Mark and KC are two of the biggest draws. KC does a straight jacket routine while Mark balances on a ladder and then a very tall unicycle that he calls a suicycle (as in suicide unicycle) while juggling and telling jokes. Billy swears he learned how to busk watching these guys. So, if you are ever in Key West go to Mallory Square at sunset and look for Mark and KC. You won’t regret it. (Be sure to tip well. Or they will follow you to your hotel and start the show all over again.)

Billy’s random thoughts.

Thursday, December 18, 2008


So, today is a good day, cause today is Thursday. Yeah….So, if U haven’t picked up a Blue Vipers CD yet, DO IT NOW! While supplies last, for a limited time only, we’ll throw in a case! Whoo Hooo! We got Tshirts (maybe) too, and you can always order a promo poster, so you can see us perched on a rock in Williamsburg….Or, I’ll send you a picture of his underwear, looking innocent yet aware…Or not.

Ok, as some of u know, we celebrate alot of things at this time of year, but tomorrow, lets celebrate snow…Cause that’s gonna be about it for the day…A whole shitload of snow…Merry Christmas ho ho ho white Christmas, oh yeah.

So, I gotta say this to all my readers out in dance land, “THE HOUSE IS NOT A DANCER FRIENDLY VENUE!” In other words, the owner jumped on me about dancers dancing at a nondanceable venue..He was pissed too..Very Pissed..The place is just tooo smalll…Sorry dancers, that ain’t the place to boogie, and pleeeease don’t push it or ITS MY ASS! Thanx.

And now, the B movie reference of the day is not to one film but one man who directed many films, Mario Bava, an Italian Visionary who directed such classics as The Planet of the Vampires, inspiration for Aliens and other such flicks..Mario was a painter originally, then went on to make some beautiful films in Italian and English such as Knives of the avenger, Kill,Baby, Kill, and The Day the Sky Exploded…

Young Mario went from painting to his father’s work in sculpting and special effects…The colors in his films are Brilliant, lots of cool stuff going on there and really the precursors to many modern genres of Horror films are included in his body of work (check out Twitch of The Death Nerve to see the birth of the slasher flick) Cool stuff.

On that note,

B is for beautiful! not for Budget!

Check us out soon, watch many movies, and listen to cool stuff every cahnce u get!
