Being that I do not have the time to upload the images of last weeks return to Arizona, I can at least off you this image of TV host Count Midnight www.countmidnight.com and I at the Music Box Massacre.
Things are winding down though not quite enough till after Halloween weekend, which normally marks the end of my busiest season of the year.
Kelly and I have been either on the road over the last 2 months or at some weekend long event that absorbs any alone time that we could allow ourselves. After this weekend, it's a coast till Alc O Holiday and then the big AVN show in Jan.
Thursday evening as soon as I got off work I made the commute home, changed my clothes and took my packed bags to the corner for a lift to O'Hare where we learned out flight to AZ was an hour late. It wasn't a bad thing being it actually gave us time to sit down and eat.
We boarded TED Airlines which is a new part of UNITED AIRLINES and I insist that everyone considered economy when flying because Ted will never, knock knock, get our business again. It should have been called RETARD - TED Airlines. They are bad and the passengers as well as the crew leave much to be desired. I may as well have been flying out of Gary.
We arrived in Phoenix at 11 ish PST and were greeted by John who I hadn't seen in two years. We wasted no time in getting to his new house complete with garden of Eden and a bar built in the barn in his back yard. And we drank till 330 which was 530 my time which officially marked that I had been up now for 24 hours and feeling no fatigue. I only went to sleep because I saw the weariness on Johns face and knew for my own sake I better crash. Kelly had sacked out an hour prior and Johns cat Freaky Beast slept between our heads and I woke up with her sleeping on my chest.
I woke up and John and I began getting things together and running a few errands early on and we just kicked back till Kelly woke up and got ready. The fun was about to begin. Shopping for anything in Phoenix is fun, especially for omeone liek me who has a lot of southwest flair for a Chicagoan. And the mexican supermarket we ended up shopping for grub for that evenings BBQ was pure heaven on earth. Why we don't have something like this in Chicago is beyond me. And we loaded up BIG TIME! But the grand finale was the pound of cerviche' we took back to Cheneys place.
John is well stocked with booze and lots of ultra fine tequilas from Mexico. I had sampled several the night before and as the dark engulfed sun city a party was on the horizon. The first to arrive was a friend I made on myspace named Michellio who is a friend of a friend I knew from a band who I booked regularly back home in Chicago. Michellio had a friend Katie with her who had met her in Mesa about 17 months earlier.
As we all began drinking and becoming friends a lot of familiar faces began to arrive, many friends I've made over the last 6 years that I've been a regular visitor to Phoenix. Jason Moss and his wife and I reunited. Jason as it turns out is a 3 decade old friend of porn's newest sensation, the director of the moment, Eon McKai, someone I've been working on a professional level with for the past year. And the people kept showing up, pix were snapped and memories were made. We even had a little Absinthe which JC has imported occasionally. it was a nice evening and when Wil aka Vil Vodka arrived we went next door to his bar and had some very nice cold martinis.
The night ended mid morning and I found myself needing sleep and once again with Kelly and I freaky Beast slumber along.
