Mexican Monarch Metal Brothers in Mexico City

The Mexican Monarch Metal Brothers in Mexico City. Jan 13. At 21:00 I went to meet Sara at a metal bar in Mexico City called Metal Brothers.  The website said there was no cover charge and stated that live bands play every night.  I was worried that it was going to be some lame ‘Cruise Ship’ band covering a version of ‘Hotel California’ for the eight-kajillianth time and fill me with regret. Nope! None of that at all…  Metal Brothers was...

ACDC aka Axl/DC in London

ACDC nee Axl/DC in London At 15:00 I rushed out the door to meet Karel at the Ritzy in Brixton and from there we headed for the London event of the night…AC/DC nee Axl/DC nee Axl/AC/DC! I have twice before watched ACDC during the ‘Rock and Roll Train’ tour in 2009.  Their show was totally amazing both nights, but I felt like I have been there and done that when the upcoming European tour was announced.  Then news hit that...

Musical Candy – The Camden Monarch

May 1 I had flown across two continents for it, just to be a part of this night… England.  London.  Camden.  The Monarch.  Metalworks. It would be old bag of tricks in a new shirt. *In retrospect, I can say for sure from the evening that my lifestyle does not permit me to own a white shirt. I met Mike just after 18:00 and we went to a small establishment called Spiritual Bar to drink beer and catch up.  Justin...

Ethiopia to London – I am ‘Home’!

April 30 I arrived in my lovely and wonderful London at 07:00. My ‘London home’ feeling. The immigration man was typically English witty.   ‘STAMP’! Fundon, I am home.   London…Baby, I am so glad to be here.  Everything about you is exciting.  Getting on the Tube is exciting.  Using my British bank card with no foreign fees is exciting.  Blending in as a typical white person is exciting.  White women are exciting.  Falling love 15 times in the 2...

Edmonton Oiler fanatic

A Struggling Edmonton Oiler Fanatic Junkie

My name is Stephen Harris, and I am an Edmonton Oiler fanatic. I feel like making that statement is similar to a line made by someone attending alcoholics anonymous.  I really am addicted to a terrible hockey team, and it is difficult. This is how it came to be… I was born in 1979 and when I was a little boy of the age of five or six, I knew of the Edmonton Oilers.  I remember being at a house...

São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro

São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro. February 26. got up at 7:45am to pack at Carolina’s place in São Paulo, Brazil to pack.  I told Carol that I am worried about how my partying and sleeping around is going to bother her and I never want her to feel shitty.  She told me, “Don’t worry about it.  What you have when you are is what you have when you are here, and this is why is works.”  Wow!  Wow…  An awesome...
