Now is the Summer of our discothèque...

Sorry. Sometimes I have to throw a little cerebral humor in there to keep Paul interested. He's so high-maintenance...

With the passing of Donna Summer, and Robin Gibb teetering on the edge, we're left with fewer reminders on why we hated the disco era so much. Fortunately I have here one of my famous, nay in-famous, bulleted lists!

Why disco sucked (and all that came with it):

  • Waterbeds. Ever play handball against a curtain? Try date-night on a waterbed.
  • Mirror balls. If they're not matched up with corresponding brass poles, we don't need 'em.
  • Skin-tight polyester vests. No one needs to see my man-nipples.
  • Lights under the floor. DON'T FOLLOW THE LIGHTS!!!
  • The hair. Oh my god, the hair! And not just on their heads!!
  • Shaun Cassidy. 'Nuff said.
  • Walking to the beat...of anything. Okay, so I still do this, but I'm trying.

I rest my case.

Columbus' Best Cover Band, THE REAGANOMICS!
For the third year in a row, The Reaganomics have been voted by you and (614) Magazine as Columbus'

"Out of all the decades for a cover band to choose from, this five-piece must have done something right by selecting the ’80s as their specialty. Since 1996, the Reaganomics have been spreading their love of new wave and dance pop throughout the Midwest. Beyond a busy schedule of live shows at clubs and festivals throughout the region, these retro-rockers are also available to keep the dance floor electrified at your private event."

Yay us!


Tonight for the first time in recent memory, we're heading over to On the Rocks in Dublin! Yes, apparently The Reaganomics have grown tired of the whining, the pleading, the griping and complaining, and finally told me we can go back there. Make sure you GET THERE EARLY!! We're not responsible for chafing.

Next Friday!!

Holy root beer Batman, it's Benny's Pizza!! Unlike other "Summers," this one is alive and kicking now that our first show at Benny's is on our doorstep. Bring the kids, and when the sun goes down send 'em home with the neighbor lady so we can make idiots of ourselves.

Okay, so that's not such a stretch for me...but I did come up with the Shakespeare reference.
