Some Cool Boulevard News:
Doc John Opens a Dairy
Well after his Boxer Shorts company went down
after a terrible Smear campaign ...the Doc was left pondering his
Since he was a baby Mostert sucking on his
mother's milk he has always had dairy in his blood.
And after watching a documentary on mating cows on
discovery channel he decided a dairy would be a great way to earn
a bit of extra on the side.
Also After having met and been involved with alot
of cows in his lifetime it seemed like a natural transition to Dairy
He has really eased into his new found passion for
Udder Squeezing and in general milking the public.
Although he has often sucked at dairy
products in general he is definitely keeping a breast of the
When a reporter from the Daily Tripe asked John if
he thought it was wise to get involved at such a late stage in his
he replied "Udder Know"
He did also added though that the competition is
cheesed off at his recent growth.... although he plans to have the growth removed
at a later date.
Anyway we wish Doc John's Dairy all the success in
Big G joins a new band
Other exciting news was Graeme Abbott had to shed
a bit of skin after he joined a Jewish Worship Band.
He has really enjoyed the new exposure that he has
and in his own words he said...."this band is a
cut above the rest"
He promised it wouldn't interfere with his BB
commitments even if he does have a problem with
He wasn't able to make the gig on Sunday at
Justwine due to a stomach problem which only Graeme knows the finer details
Anyway Debbie Pryor came in and did a sterling
job........It was great to have the Acoustic band up and
running again....even if it was at the expense of Graeme who was
down and running.
Graham Beyer and Re-hab
He is Now out from re-hab but has been drinking on
the sly and he has started smoking again.
He said re-hab has been tough on him and the
drinking and smoking have definitely helped him over this stressful
We hope to have him back to full health and
his car firing on all cylinders soon.
Greg twists his leg:
Greg 'Turkey Neck' Smith as he likes to be called
is limping again.
He twisted his leg while listening to the new
single by Limp Biskuit.
While headbanging he got his Turkey neck in a
knot, heard a loud cracking sound and then did a 180 degree involuntary
turn while hitting the canvass only to look up and see two left feet
staring back at him.
After that he walked around in circles for days
wondering why he hasn't been going anywhere.
A quick visit to a Physiotherapist and a
twist to the right was all that was needed...or so he thought..... because
now he has a right foot back..... but unfortunately they twisted the
left foot right and not the twisted right foot left which has left him with a
left foot that now points right and a right foot that now points left.
I guess this also explains why he's been going
backwards these days.
is rather complicated and we do hope he gets this sorted out as soon as
