Alice Cooper 'Dirty Diamonds'

Yes, I know that I haven’t updated this blog in a while. I do appreciate Clay Howard calling me this afternoon to ask if everything was all right. I’ve just been a little busy with things at work this summer.

It made me smile when Clay said that he gets a chuckle from my blog whenever he reads it.

There you have it world! I’m appreciated!

Clay’s band Stratocruiser is opening for the Patrick Rock Band this Friday night at the Blind Tiger here in Greensboro.

Don’t forget the Rock 92 Summertime Brews Fest happening at First Horizon Park in downtown Greensboro on the following day, Saturday July 30th. It’s going to be a hell of a time. There’ll lots of beer, food, and live music from Big Bump, the Matt Hill Band, and Tracy Thornton.

Thornton is no stranger to this blog. Tracy and I were in our first band together back in high school. I wrote about it when Motley Crue were last in town. Check out the April blogs if you’re so inclined.

Here’s something that has rolling around in my mind for almost a week…

I was walking through the parking lot to visit the Post Office on Battleground. That’s the same shopping center that has Earth Fare and a Starbucks… I noticed a woman driving her family into the parking lot and I saw something rather odd about her front license plate.

It was a produced plate with a mountain scene at sunset. The trees and hillside were all black with a yellowish sunset background.

Usually you will find that folks will have their name airbrushed on there. Perhaps even the name of someone they love or care about. Maybe something like Barry loves Linda on there.

You know what I’m talking about, right?

Well, this genius decided to spend at least twenty bucks to have her favorite word airbrushed onto this decorative license plate. It was “whatever”.

That’s right! A lovely mountainous scene at sunset with the word “whatever” airbrushed in pretty cursive writing.

At first, I laughed to myself. Then I couldn’t help but wonder about what kind of idiot this must be.

I’m guessing that she’s in the wrong most of the time when arguments arise. Because I have noticed that when people are wrong and they don’t have a leg to stand on, they try to get the last word with “whatever”.

So, if this woman’s favorite phrase/word is “whatever” and she feels compelled enough to spend twenty dollars or more to have it airbrushed onto a license plate as her personal credo… Then she must be an idiot.

Maybe she has a key chain with “Talk to the Hand” printed on it.
