WATN file #4

Michael Spencer Arsehole Party

Instrument: Drums

Influences: Welly boots, A spot of tea with a wee nip of whiskey.

Member: 5PM, Jun 3rd, 1990- 4:32:07 PM, Aug. 26th, 1990

Favorite saying: "If I got a spoon could I 'ave a taste of that Mate?" - "The guitarist is stepping on everyone else's dick Mate."

Left Private Sector....actually was told to leave....really was forced out......drop kicked into oblivion.

Last known location: "Just sittin' around the house with my balls hanging out Mate."

Rumor has it: Lives in a box underneath the Hog's Hollow overpass.

Just kidding Michael.....NO I"M NOT!......No really, no hard feelings........I hate you......No I don't................*cough* Imbecile!

Xmas gift ideas for all.....

...and to all a good night after you give them this dreck, or dreck the halls if you will?

Camel head (for that special girl)

Come on, it's better than camel toe don't you think? Besides, what guy wouldn't want his special lady to wear this to bed? Ever since that CSI episode involving people dressed up in animal costumes scritching one another, this idea has really appealed to me.

Although I'm not sure how I'd explain the semen stains to the Dry Cleaner....

The Dick Putter (for that special guy)

Not sure the message you'd be trying to send here: You're a dick, I don't get enough dick, You're dick's a tiny little putter and the mailman is the one with the driver, Thank you for the camel head?

However, I'm sure there is one. Just ask before you bat her over the head with it.

The USB Gimp (for that special teen)

I can't count the number of times someone has mugged me for my memory stick, wishing I had somewhere to hide it where it wouldn't be discovered outside of my asshole.

Enter the USB Gimp and worry no more. Although asking your teen to wear this ugly bugger might lead them to getting a similar item they can stick pins in and looks remarkably like you.

The Toy Virus Toy (for that special child)

Or you could just get them something made in China. It would be equally as effective.

Is it just me or are Asians really fucked up trying to market all this crap?

There's hope after all

Yes, even for me. Yet, that is not the subject of todays post.

I thought after so many subjects dealing with sexual conotations and defication into cups for personal enjoyment, I would put up something heart warming, inspiring, incredible, unbelievable. Something with hope as one week ends and another begins.

A close friend of GIGC and myself suffered a spinal injury a couple of months ago. She was told she was paralyzed from the waist down and would not walk again.

The following, shot by her Son, shows the astounding progress of her recovery.

New release this week

The Frivolous Five- Sour Cream and Other Delights.

As long as there isn't a cup involved. Because if there is, they're going to need a bucket.

2 girls 1 cup

I'm the first one to admit when I go too far........OK maybe the second. I've been hearing about 2 girls and 1 cup and the uproar it's causing. It's here if you really feel brave enough to watch it.

You know....I think one of those women is a former girlfriend of mine. I remember telling her to, "eat shit and die". She seems to have taken the first part to heart.

I didn't post it on my blog, because first, I don't want to be shut down, and secondly, it's more of a Christmas video anyway. The gift of giving and all that.

However, here's a song about it.

If you close your eyes and do the Doobie Brothers thing. "Listen to the Music", you'll get a good visual idea, especially if you still have no clue as to what this is all about.

I wonder if it's too late to add this guy to the Private Sector show on the 30th? or 2 girls and 1 cup for that matter?

"Thank you! Good night! Now get the fuck out!"

More X-mas toy ideas

With the American Thanksgiving on the horizon and Black Friday looming just beyond, the holiday free-for-all will soon be on us like an invasive sexual disease. To help you navigate through the festive shoving to the unique , yet bizarre gift for your child, I offer the following suggestions.

Gut Fish

Ever play Operation as a kid? This is the same thing except instead of wanting to be a doctor your child will want to be a sushi chef.....or murder you while you sleep.

Hazmat Toy

What better way to teach your child about the world we live in? Not to mention the lead-tainted toys from China.

Poop Shoot

I don't think I need to say any more, except this comes from Japan, and you may not get murdered in your sleep after all.

Ram it! Ram it! Ram it!
Ram it up your poop shoot......

Cold season is here

Got the sniffles? If you were Japanese you'd never have to worry about having a cold again.

Double your new release pleasure

First off we have Pump Pump by Fredi and Friends. I guess that's Fredi, bottom middle?

Looks like the Friends should have dumped dour Fredi for mutton chop Harry. He looks like a much happier fellow.

Xmas is for the kids

Christmas will soon be here. I know this because I've been seeing Yule-tide commercials since mid October.

Therefore, as always, I'd like to help in your sellection of toys for the kids.

Say how about the Star Wars Darth Tater? Always a hit with kids.

Awww that's cute, but you say,"Strange, my kid gets board after thirty seconds and starts to play with the box the gift came in."

Well my friend, never fear for Strange also has suggestions that will keep your "little obnoxious you" busy for hours. Mainly because it will take him/her/it that long to figure out what the hell you got them and countless days after to pray to God that you die in some horrible way.

You're welcome.

Doll with a penis

I know it sounds like a Smiths song but it's also a great toy too. If your child is already confused why not have a little fun at their expence?

What do you mean you don't have a pee-pee Amy? Look at the dolly.

Yes Billy. All little girls look like that.

The Happy Fun Sled.

This one I bought for GIGC last year. I still haven't got the smile off her face. Although this toy is a bigger hit with girls it doesn't have to be gender specific and it seems to be a hit with the adults too especially if you're involved with one of those secret Santa gift exchanges.

The Jesusbot

Forget Transformers. Your kid should have the Jesusbot. It's a great way for them to cut corners when they ask God to kill you.

The great Bumbo recall

This article was sent to me by Bob Noxious weeks ago. However, with all the self-indulgent Private Sector rig-a-marole I was mired in, I failed to post it....until now.

I do apologize as I could have saved many an infant from head injury....nay, even death, had I simply chosen to warn you earlier.

With all the Chinese recalls going on, I feel I cannot allow something of such an important nature to slip from my grasp again.

Yet, I will say, had Bumbo been used correctly and as intended, parents would not be in an uproar and children would still have full mental capacity.

Mr. Noxious and I, as well as Dickie Sanchez and OBJ, tested this product repeatedly during the summer months and found, when used correctly, no injury- not even the tiniest of scratches ensued.

The fact is, we found Bumbo provided more protection, enhanced equilibrium, and gave us clairvoyance into future events.

Although I believe Dickie is now sick from lead poisoning.

Thank you China.

Adding to the bill

Who are these scraping young devils who look like they just got out of post-op?

Why it's "The Private Sector".

Don't know much about them except they have some songs on itunes and they share the same name as us.

Personally I think we should contact them about adding them to the line-up on the 30th at the Reverb. Private Sector with special guest Private Sector.

Has a nice ring to it, don't ya think?

Rememberance Day means something to everyone

To me, besides the obvious, my remembrance falls around the best American Beer I've ever tasted- Yuengling out of Pennsylvania. I had it last week at the Sector show in N.Y. and I tell you, I couldn't blow through the sets fast enough. I needed the bold, amber lager on my pallet once again. Not to mention with the Canadian dollar soaring, a ten drink round could be had for $5.

So raise a glass and "Cheers" to my Yuengling!

With posts like this I'll never get considered for the Weblog awards.

Congrats to Mitchieville BTW for finishing in the finals.

New release this week

Oh man......just when I thought Private Sector had a decent shot at a comeback Roger puts out a new album. How can we compete?

Nectar of the Sector

Halloween may be over, but Private Sector rose from the dead at Sparky's in Brewerton N.Y. last Saturday for an inspiring performance at the Boaters Black Party- a traditional outing the 1st weekend after all Hallows Eve. It was the first time most of the original lineup had graced the stage-any stage- in nearly 15 years, as they kicked off their "Tour of Supreme Audacity", a tour that will encompass only two cities.

Show organizers, Audrey Pisiak and Emily Merrit, both agreed,"it's like they haven't missed a beat in all those years. Except they do look happier."

....and fatter and balder....take your pick.

The 1st set opened with a powerful rendition of "The Cure" before a near capacity crowd and thundered on as Sector plowed through their storied past. New versions of "Sleepless" and a Foo Fighteresque arrangement of "Holdin' Out" with guitarist Stu Green at the helm were particular crowd pleasers. As was "Standing on the Edge", a song featuring "Message in a Bottle", "Tom Sawyer", "Come Sail Away", "Don't go Breaking my Heart", and "My Hump" in a juicy, entertaining, middle to the song.

From drummer Brian Christopher's solid beat, to Don Barley's infectious bass grooves, the band moved effortlessly from one song to the next, visiting "The Mask", "The Colder the Compromise", and continuing to the nights conclusion- an encore of "You Move Me" and "Subliminal Messages". Even a sound miscue in "The Gardener" could not spoil this evening as keyboardist Bob Stone and the boys easily pushed on past any musical speed bumps.

As singer Chris Strange noted early in the proceedings, "We're here to give you 100%, or given the current rate of exchange, I guess that would be 107%".....

....and Private Sector delivered.

Next Show: Friday November 30th @ the Reverb, Toronto, with special guests Kong and Poker Face.

Jumping Japanese

Just when you think all is right with the world, you find a video of Japanese in bug suits competing in a narrow jumping challenge and then you are sure we will all die soon.

New release this week

In honour of Private Sector's return to the stage this weekend stateside, I thought a visit to the glory days might be necessary, so, once again Private Sector's Senseless. Now there's some good listening.

Alright, which one of you just said, "thought Halloween was over?"

Again with the opening act

With the weekend fast approaching and the trip to New York imminent, the question of what to do for an opening act remains. Here is yet another contender for the position to kick off the Private Sector show Saturday night. Although 40 minutes of "The Simpsons" theme might be a little fatiguing.

Thanks to Bob Noxious for scouting this one out. Thanks, but no thanks.
