EASTER BRUNCH in Pittsburgh!

The Peterson's House (Scotts Roger)

So we somehow managed to meet the greatest group of people (of all time) in Pittsburgh, PA last year. We played BRilloBox with Donora and Nick Weston and met all these super heros. They get together with a bunch of local bands and have a huge brunch. HIlarity always ensues and we couldn't be happier spending our Easter Sunday with these guys...

This is Scott Peterson..he's making his special home potatoes and eggs...

This is his wife Sarah with their baby Wyatt...

One of my favorite things about the Peterson brunch is drinking mimosas out of the BOBA FETT mug....

Pat ate 3 boxes of CHEEZITS and now he's gotta drive 7 hours home....

Jake (Donora)

Benji of Rostrum Records with the best sweater i've seen in a long time...

Cindy showed Zac how a zoom lens can pick up even the SMALLEST items.....like that rolled up 20 Dollar Bill iin the bottom of Ange's purse for example....

...shortly afterwards... Zac's hand was pretty damn close to that purse and Ange was missing twenty bucks...but look at that face!...HAD to be coincidence...

We noticed the Mariage Blanc guys were looking a bit bored,....

So we struck up a game of SPIN THE BABY!!!

This is one of our favorite games....You spin the baby and whoever his head winds up pointing to, gets a kiss. (w/ tongue)
Our first winner!!

Unfortunately we only got to play one round. The baby puked.

At least we got plenty of REESE's!

But only ONE peep left...Pat was concerned....

I had given up cookies for lent, but Angie (the angel) had brought me my first cookie in 40 days!

We mised you Kathryn, but thanks for the house....and naturally a big thanks to all our Pittsburgh friends for a great weekend!

Until next time...

Pittsburgh, PA

Hard Rock Cafe

7 hours later...it's now daylight. After driving through some mountain tunnels, we finally see those beautiful yellow steel bridges that connect one of our favorite cities...PITTSBURGH!

Our friend Kathryn Heidemann was kind enough to loan us her house while she visit friends in VA. We were sad she and her turkey bacon wouldn't be there to hang out with us, but super excited to stay in a nice big house! When we rolled up to her place it was very early in the morning and we were all tired. K noticed some people standing on their doorsteps in bathrobes and the sound of one woman singing quite loudly. He thought this was odd given the time of day and when he saw a grey cloud swing so low to the street he made up his mind that this town was weird. Kathryn lives in a strange neighborhood.

It wasn't until he came back outside for a pillow that he realized what was ACTUALLY going on. That wasn't a "cloud" it was a billow of black smoke and the person "singing" was actually yelling for help. A house on the corner was on fire!!!

Still...we were too tired so we all stayed in bed....K was out there taking pics. By the time we woke up the house looked like this:

Pat and K had taken a drive to see the house Pat's Grandma lived in, (which was much better off than that other poor house)....

Grammy Felicia lived there till Pat was 10 years old and he had fond memories of feeding her birds and running around the backyard peeing on stuff. Now, if you look to your left, you'll see his Aunt Sal and Unc's house.....another childhood haunt of Pat's.

Activities in THIS particular house included, but were not limited to, stealing candy out of the candy jar and fetching his Dad beers from the fridge at age 3. Dino proudly takes the credit for Pat's first learned "skills" in eye-hand coordination and hospitality.

Meanwhile back at the Heidemann Ranch, Zac and I were writing a new song and waiting for the guys so we could start running around Frick Park. This place has a million different trails and lots of hills. We managed to find our way back without having to eat each other so overall, a good run. We ate Kathryn's peanut butter, took showers, and went to the club. Parking around Harvard Station was tricky and we didn't like the tone of this particular sign...

Who do these signs think they are???! The Blaze is from NYC and doesn't take shit from ANYone...let alone this bossy piece of metal. You know what??


Since we're not sure how ballsy the local Police are (they might not know who they're dealing with), Zac kept an eye on her...

After meeting up with DOnora and Maraige Blanc we got set up and headed to the liqour store to meet yet ANOTHER new member of the Burnett's Family:

PEACH (a.k.a. "Elizabeth Reed")****

**** We decided upon this name through the following schemas:
Peach-> eat a peach -> Duane Allman-> Allman Brothers Band -> "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" -> Elizabeth Reed

At the show we had our friends Ange, Cindy, Dani, Keli, Ashley, and Scott....but the guest of honor was Scott and Sarah's baby Wyatt!

He loved the show, but slept right through the 2nd half...how does that happen???

Our friends DONORA came up next and sounded A-MAZE-ING. Love that band:

After the show we all went back to Kathryn's and threw the SICKEST house party Pittsburgh's ever seen.......you could barely walk through the house without rubbing elbows with some hilariously drunk, under-aged college kid.
(just kidding Kathryn)
We were so tired and amped for brunch the next day that we just went back home to sleep....kinda like Christmas Eve....the sooner you go to bed the sooner Santa Clause comes. But in this case, the sooner JC resurrects...


Louisvile, KY

The Space on 6th & Oak

We woke up in the most perfect sleeping situation. A whole attic designed for a band....there was a bed and plenty of floor space for us to do whatever while the upper echelon go about their business throughout the main section of the house. When it was time to get up we all went to the living room to say good morning to our gracious hosts. Jen had gotten up for work at 7am but was home by the time we came down. Proud of that girl....must've been rough :(

We basically hung about watching youtube clips on "bullshit storms" and drank coffee.

Nothing out of the ordinary...UNTIL....we walked into jen's bedroom, through the walk-in closet, and discovered an alcove dedicated to her own personal army of Transformers?!?!?!

For those of you who don't know; TRANSFORMERS are one of the few things in this tangible world that give K great joy. So we weren't surprised to find him in the closet 2 hours later....

We needed to get on the road for Louisville so we sadly left our new friends. Thanks Jenn, Kate, and Stef!

Nice day for a drive in Ohio...

Not so much in Kentucky....

We kept our local superhero "FESTO" busy with some bio-degradable trash ammunition....always searching for strips of land to discard Blaze banana peels (doesn't count as litter if it lands on soil)....

We also came across some mysterious outer space machines....

K got a call from the Striped Sweater Coalition (SSC) thanking him for his unfailing support and noble effort in bringing stripes to the forefront of high fashion sense across the country. Should he succeed in boosting Striped Sweater Sales in middle America he'll receive a free subscription to "Women's Health" magazine...he's excited!!! Hell, we ALL are.

We made a stop off Bardstown Ave to get Coffee and Glow-In-The-Dark Unicorn stickers. The coffee was rad....

...and the stickers were magical. They live on my floor tom at the moment...

Right beside our table was a bucket full of toys! K's lucky day!!!

In the adjoining bookstore Pat found a handheld version of the Constitution which he promptly bought for the freedom loving Jeff Taylor. Zac, who knows my favorite author, very kindly bought me the latest collection of Kurt Vonnegut's works. And K bought his wife a birthday card. I'm the only Dbag who bought nothing for anyone :(

It was about load-in time so we followed the Moonshine Truckā„¢ to see about getting some for the show...

Once we were at The Space we got to meet Jeb and his lady friend Bess Such a rad couple! They live in the house attached to the art space and they're super smart/talented. Bess had just finished watching the documentary "Flow" and she suggests we all do the same. Make a note of it. We had a real good time hanging out with them (in between hanging out with "Melly-Mel" in the Blaze).

We also just got the new EP by Phoenix called "Wolfgnag Amadeus Phoenix" so although it was dark and gloomy outside we kept things alive blasting "1901" a million times. THANKS ELYSE!

The show was fun and our friend Kevin Magner REALLY hooked it up with a fresh bottle of whiskey JUST for us! ( *ahem* or apparently just for Zac as the night progressed) Afterwards we said our goodbyes and headed straight for Pittsburgh...it was gonna be a long night...
