Greatest Hits

I recently dug up this photo shot by Ivy Lovell after someone asked me how I got the gig doing sound at P&L. In mid-July 2010, a month after they opened, I went to see my first show there. When I arrived one of the owners even lamented to me that someone had forgotten to book security for the night. At the end of one of the sets a guy ran up and started punching the guitar player in the Sphinx. Without thinking I jumped on the assailant and put him in a choke-hold! All I could think was “this guy is bigger than me and if he gets away I’m fucked”, so I squeezed as tight as I could with my left arm (I’m left handed) and fed him punches as hard and as fast as I could with my right. The guys face ended up breaking my little Canon Digital ELPH camera that was strapped to my right wrist, BUT he didn’t get away.

I came back a couple weeks later to do sound which was arranged through Moog Audio, and it turned out I already knew half the staff though Odd Fellows or VICE or from around the music scene, and those I hadn’t known before knew me as the guy who’d beaten the shit out of the attacker. I guess me and P&L were destined to be! Ironically, if the same person were jumped in front of me today I would cheer and clap for the attacker, probably even help him out, but I love the photo! Thanks for immortalizing one of the most bad-ass moments of my life Ivy!

Here’s to the good times, before the real shit-storm began; ending a certain era, and cleansing many toxic friendships from my life…

I wish for the blessings of good fortune, health, eternal happiness and respect towards those who are kind-hearted, hard-working and give a fuck; especially so to the few friends I have who love, care for, and are willing to try and understand me. I need all the love and positive vibes I can get. ❤ I wish peace towards those who are totally uninterested in me and the passions, ideas and goals I pursue in my life. I curse misfortune, sickness and devastation upon my enemies who would maliciously seek to do me harm; may they be cast down and utterly destroyed beyond recognition. Don’t less jealousy infect your heart.
