    Didn't know if this has to do with music, per se, but in a way it kinda does, so.......

    I decided to use the extra time on my hands, since I'm assigned to a shore duty station with a very liberal work schedule, and take on a night job.

    I have crossed over to the "Dark Side", guys.

    I've been hired as a new member of "Staff Pro Concert Security". Yep. I am now a member of the team that I used to refer to as "assholes" everytime I set foot in a concert venue in Southern California.

    Hey, it's extra income, and it gets me off the internet. Should be interesting..... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    Good luck on the new gig....I'm gonna send this to the Non-Music forum to see if we get a little more action on this.......
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Cool, Vince. Make sure you work the Dave/Sammy show so you can "accidentally" let me backstage. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Thats ass breaking work, but its fun. I did it in Japan for a while with a couple big bo hunks that started their own security gig. They asked if I would fill in from time to time when guys were out and I agreed....like a dummy. I'm not a big huge guy, but to Japanese guys I'm larger than ......well all. BUT I was still smaller than the rest of the dudes I was with and they fuckin knew it too! I was like the weak brick in the damn, so any trouble or whacky crowd surfer trying to get over the wall ALWAYS came my way first. lol. So I had to be nastier and shitier than any of the other guys to keep them from coming at me. Every show I would have the skin scraped off my knuckles from twisting shirts and throwing people back into the crowd. Literally THROWING! Major workout. Got to meet some cool bands though. Offspring and Beastie Boys were a kick. And got to sit right behind Nick Cage at the Japanese premier of The Rock. Good times, but tough for a comperable little guy like me. I'm just six-0 and 200.

    Good luck with it. I'm willing to bet you take back more than one good story.

    *edit..thought better of that last comment. lol. Nevermind. [img]graemlins/sssh.gif[/img]

    Ouch!

    Nah, I'm just in this for something to do. Of course, I will make sure I have my digital camera at the ready for all the gigs I do work. I found out that we also work all the events here in San Diego, and some in L.A. as well. That includes sporting events, which I'm not too thrilled about.

    A buddy of mine on the VH mailing list at yahoogroups said that there was another former list member that used to do concert security, and he used to get free tickets thrown his way. If it happens, cool. If not, no big deal. Shit, I'm already hearing "Dude, hook me up!" from my younger brother. I can imagine how many other people are gonna be emailing me privately asking the same thing.

    Tell you what, if and when the Sam/Dave thing happens in L.A. and/or S.D., I think I'll be <cough, cough, sniff, sniff> sick that night.

    As for gettin' Chelle backstage, we'll see what happens.
