Bill Butler Birthday Hang Out at Wicks Pizza in New Albany last night. Radiotronic was kicking out the 80’s new wave, disco funky pop goodness while we consumed mass quantities of dough and cheese.

I’m the short person with the hat next to the tiny pale Native American statue, and that large man with me is Bill. He turned 42. He’s a leap year baby… so I guess he’s not really 42.

Top photo, Jimmy Stiller and his wife Stacey talking with Jeff. Jimmy and Bill are mountain bike buddies and Jimmy teaches special students at the elementary school level.

2nd photo, the medical student Emily and her husband Scott. Scott did my recent Tarantula tattoo and he’s done a few tattoos on Bill. He works at Acme Ink here in Louisville.

3rd photo, Keith Morlen, a local cyclist that rides with Don Walker and used to ride with Bola, and an all around awesome dude, talking with Jeremiah, the local drive in movie buff and monster movie freak. He’s one of my best friends.

The 4th picture is me and Bill.

The last picture is Jeff, he does sound and lights for the band we went to see, and he hates having his picture taken ,but he’s a good dude with silky hair and pale skin like a porcelain princess.

All of these people are lovely and do awesome things.

Day off of work today. Didn’t get on the bicycle, took a motorcycle ride instead to get bagels with Bill. Beautiful day.

Every Tuesday night for the past two years a small group of awesome folks from the Louisville and Southern Indiana area have been meeting at a rad little pizza/brewery in New Albany on Grant Line Road called The New Albanian around 8pm at night. We usually stay until close. They have Big Red on tap, and the best soft pretzels I have ever had in my entire life. (That’s saying a lot because I am obsessed with soft pretzels.) This is an open invitation to anyone that follows me, or stumbles upon my Tumblr to come to Tuesday night pizza if you are rolling through town on a bicycle, motorcycle, or a drive alone, with company, or with your band.I’m not one of those people that “loves to meet new people”, but if you dig the stuff I post here, you’ll have fun. The conversation always revolves around wide genres of music, live music experiences, books, movies, and just silly shit…..

Yesterday, Scott Bryant, of Acme Ink here in Louisville started the anatomical correct, traditionally styled Singapore Blue Tarantula piece on my shoulder. 

This is the Tarantula that jumped four feet across the room, though the air, and then chased me down the hallway. Bill still has it, and it’s a source of jokes non-stop.

The spider will be colored in with various blue shades, and it will have webbing placed around it. However, Tarantulas don’t spin the kind of webs you see tattoos on Social Distortion fan’s elbows………. so it’ll be interesting, and it’ll be done a few days after Xmas.

This was my first piece from Scott. It was a super duper experience. The music he played was good too…. everything from Gorilla Biscuits to Elliott Smith.

Sarah Lyon took some photos and wrote an article for the now defunct (I think) This… Is Louisville zine that was available for free around town. 

I always picked up two copies, but I had forgotten about this article until Bill and I stopped by Magnum to pick up a clutch cable, which they had in stock, for his CB750C.

The place is awesome. The people that work there are awesome too.

Pictures came from the Magnum Cycles Facebook page. It’s here in Louisville Kentucky.
