So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


I got his autograph!

How goofy am I? I was starstruck to be sitting around with Steve Burns - THE Steve from Blue's Clues. Dylan drew some pictures of Spiderman for him and he graciously accepted them and then signed an autograph for me. It was a lot of fun. Hailey's - the club - was fun. The crowd was eclectic. Lots of different ages. Some 18-year-olds and some 35-year-olds and everything in between.

I'm really tired right now, so I'll probably write more in the morning. I'm about to head to bed. Steve didn't take the stage till midnight and I had to fight back the yawns. But, everyone will be proud of me, I was at the front of the stage recreating days of my youth hanging out watching The Spin at Bill Bill's in Waco while I was in college. Or even at that place in Temple watching Vallejo while I was living in Killeen.

The opening bands were good. El Gato rocked and Modulator was reminscent of New Order with the keyboard thing going.

This is the lead singer for Modulator. She was really good. I haven't checked it out yet, but they have a website at

These people were irritating and acting like idiots during Modulator.

Yes, the person in the red is a guy. I use the term loosely. He looked like a prettier Michael Hutchence.

Steve's show was entertaining. In typical guy fashion, he had a remote control in his hands. But, much of his show was multi-media. Ooh, I bet he was an AV-dork in high school. :) But, it was funny and made the show more entertaining. It was just him and a drummer, but when they were rocking, they were rocking. Lyrics were simplistic and the music was a bit trite. But, it was still enjoyable. He is clever and he was having a good time. You can see the big video screen in a couple of these shots. Part of them there were videos of Steve or random stuff. Other times there were some strange animation, but it made for a fun show. We thought the drummer had to be Steve's brother, but he only called him Bochy(?) from Brooklyn. I'll have pics of the drummer and the video screen tomorrow. *shrug*

Sorry for the typos and punctuation. I'm too old to stay up this late. I'll write more tomorrow.

    I remember those Spin days, though the most prevalent memory I have is of us sitting in the parking lot yelling at the Fire Chief to let us go back in after they shut it down due to there being too many people in there...there was a reason we were sitting...because we couldn't stand up!!! LOL!

    Under oath with my fingers crossed behind my back: I did not fall down or stumble in the Bill Bill's parking lot. Nor do I recall trying to interview the fire chief while slurring my questions.
