In other scene news

I have confirmed reports that, New York punks, Left Over crack, gave Eureka the shaft on Sunday, when the band called promoters 20 minutes before the doors opened and informed them they were not coming up for the show.

Allegedly the lead singer broke his arm and he couldn't perform, although I have a source who has a source who said she saw them play over the weekend in the city and the singers arm was already broken.

So... yeah, here's my current Shit List:
  • Left Over Crack
It's not that I really wanted to see them, but I talked up their show and we don't get bigger punk bands through here that often, and canceling 20 minutes before the doors open is a big jerky thing to do.

And in other news:
The Ravens failed to play at the Stonewall celebration on Friday because their drummer, Matt Marek, got vertigo. No joke folks, I heard it from BrianWioda (guitarist).

According to wikipedia:
Vertigo (from the Latin vertere, to turn, and the suffix -igo, a condition, i.e., "a condition of turning about"[1]) is a specific type of dizziness, a major symptom of a balance disorder. It is the sensation of spinning or swaying while the body is stationary with respect to the earth or surroundings.

So he could not play drums.

A big get well soon from this rock journalist.


Hmmmmm . . . "Left Over Crack"
It seems a lot hangs on interpretation of the word 'crack" in this context. If it refers to the illegal chemical substance which derives from cocaine, then one would assume that the band is edgy, dangerous, and exciting in an addictive sort of way. BUT it seems as if we have all been reading them wrong. "Crack" must refer to what you see above your plumber's pants when his back is to you.
So, cheer up Eureka! You have been spared a tedious hour of staring at someones "leftover butt crack".

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
