Alcoholic Insanity - H H N T hanksgiving












I just happened across this pic from one of the J&B tours of Spain. J & B stands for Jerguistas Y Borrachos which loosely translates as Players and Drunks. Visit www.tripirecords.com for more on that madness. Anyway, after 38 days sober it seems proper to post another hammered picture of me. I spent the entire tour in that state; completely exhausted, sun burned and insanely drunk. In this particular shot I had BITTEN into the can, inhaled all the beer and didn't spill a drop. This earned me a even higher measure of "respect" from my band mates; that along with stripping naked at every performance. The audience thought that was particularly inspired. I look back on this with mixed feelings. From this vantage point it looks like good wholesome fun (yes, I'm serious) but at the time it kind of sucked because I wasn't getting laid. I was too plastered to make the right kind of small talk in Spanish. The best I could do was "Nice tits. Wanna fuck?" For some reason that didn't work. So on the whole I file this under "Ah, the good old days. May they never come again." Still, I see that animal gleam in my eyes and think "Hmmmm... I look pretty fuckin' happy."

Aye, 'tis a cute Leprechaun with a can in his mouth...
As I remember, there were lots of fun drunken times (and I only know about what we did back in the days when we hung out together), but there was also lots of CRAP that came along with it. Once during an episode of drunken revelry I remember telling you you'd make a better friend than a boyfriend. Yikes-now here we are!!! Anyway, you're doing great-more time for music and life. Lots of love!

Ouch, that looks painful, I hope you didn't have to see your dentist after that one! Drunk is silly, but sober is so much sexier...

Happy HNT and Happy Thanksgiving!

LOL You look so wasted....
we all partied, we all get over that...
I bet you like yourself better now, and even get laid more often...
BTW my ex husband was once arrested in Denver for playing naked on stage..the band, October Faction, opening for Black Flag, the resulting mug shots made it onto their album.
They were so proud of themselves!

Happy Thanksgiving Andy!!!!!

You have pretty good teeth... but I have to admit that I was a bit like you some 10 years ago... the only conversation I could handle with a man was of the same kind you had in Spanish... but I could have that conversation in every known language... I can say I was "happy"... but it wont be true... I was... numb... I made many loosers happy... but from my side, it was only to proove myself that I could... I now know so much better!!
Congrats on the 38 days... I didn't start that diet yet... I know I should... I'm only totally frightened just thinking about it... I keep telling myself it will come... soon... or later... the sooner the better...
Happy HNT!!!
BTW... I prefer your more recent pics... you look healthiest... and so much more 'romantic'... ;-))
