Dia de los Muertes. Day of the Dead. Generally celebrated in conjunction with All Saints Day and All Souls Day, November 1st and 2nd, and mainly in Hispanic communities. I listened to Oingo Boingo for a while, and then the Rezurex. http://www.rezurex.com/ and you can check them out on the link I have enclosed [hope it works - links to their myspace page] My fave of theirs, of course, is "Dia de los Muertes", which is a damn fine tune. Do ya like rockabilly? Punk? They describe themselves as psychobilly, and that's as good as any other description, I suppose. Anyway, check 'em out! Buy their stuff! Support indy artists!!
My avatar pic was taken on dia de los Muertes last year, back when I was in the auto industry. Hated it! The industry, that is. I actually like the pic ;-) Happier now, working for the Navy, live by the beach, love the people I work with and getting to go on the water.... but I still wear black on Fridays and special occasions. Like Hallowe'en, Dia de los Muertes, and such.
Man! Usually I write a lot more words; maybe I am windin down for the night. Tomorrow's my birthday. I've been to Grate Steak and German Pantry lately, and go often to Beach Pub. Where should I go celebrate? Thoughts? Anyone? Bueller? Guido the Killer Pimp?
