Nick Huffman at Casa Diablo the day after a rock n roll BBQ

I’ve been uber busy with work and work outside of work. Now exactly two weeks after Nick Huffman passed I prepare to journey to the Looney Bin for the weekend to allow the healing to begin at the 2 day celebration of his life. I take the stage Saturday in Bradley for perhaps the very last time.

I’m doing my best to get this section of the site caught up. I have a lot of blanks to fill in. I’ve been very busy since late March and last weekend was my first free weekend and I didn’t do a podcast so I did a lot of biking.

Thanks to so many friends old and new who I saw last night at the Looney Bin Celebration of Nick Huffman’s life a difficult healing began. This evening will be much easier. The great staff and talented bands I was able to see before coming back to the hotel much too early was beautiful experience. Tonight is night #2 and tomorrow the MKULTRASOUND PodCast tribute to the Great Nick Huffman will go online. Thanks to everyone and I will miss you.

“May the wind always be at your back, and the sun always upon your face, and may the wings of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars.”

Gearing up for BBQ #2

My Radio Past is shaking up shite. More details forthcoming

The Vinland flag is a Nordic cross flag designed by American gothic metal band Type O Negative. The flag was used to symbolize a variety of frontman Peter Steele’s interests and political ideals (paganism, nature connectedness, and socialism), including his own Scandinavian heritage. Viking explorers visiting North America around the year 1000 called one of the areas they came to “Vinland”. The flag appears on various Compact Disc covers produced by the group, sometimes with the slogan “made in the People’s Technocratic Republic of Vinland”, and adorns various pieces of Type O Negative merchandise. The flag strongly resembles the unofficial flag of the Forest Finns adopted in 1978.

By the power vested in me by the Universal Life Church, I name thee as BIKE O NEGATIVE! Fuck I love this bike.

Did 36.8 miles non stop on Saturday June 18. 3 hrs only stopping to sip water, traffic and take an occasional photo. My knees hated me but I loved all of it.

The photo above was shot on my back porch deck during one of our summer gettogethers. This pain gets more intense every time I have to talk about it.

DEATH RIDE IS COMPLETE. Picked up my bike again from the shop this time to have a rack installed on the back. Not sure how much biking I can get in this week with working 10 hour days and the wedding coming up this weekend and Dawn is coming back from Indy to be my date.

Saturday I did some errands and made my way toward max’s house where we planned to grill outside. He ordered some steaks etc. I picked up a bottle of Jameson and went to Edgewater Produce and picked up some chicken legs which was a good thing as his delivery hadn’t arrived. We ate and hung a bit and I called an Uber to go home because the north side has been plagued with violent crime unlike ever before. I’m pretty sure the entire country knows how dangerous the city of Chicago is now. I also needed rest to prepare for the next days Podcast.

I had a show scheduled with Matt Zane for Sunday and Dietrich Thrall was coming back into town so I had him sit in as co host and then as guest talking about his music career. We tried to do a Valentines Day show back on2/13 but it didn’t record correctly which was better because I was, as he put it, “a little off that weekend.”

Then we went out for margaritas and food. I didn’t want to go anywhere but he seemed like he really did so I went along. They waitress p0ured strong.

Victoria Rose Vladislav aka Victoria Rose “Tori” Ciocca 1991-2021

When it was announced last week that the MISFITS would be returning to headline RIOT FEST again I immediately posted it to Tori’s wall only to discover that she passed away late 2021. I’m devastated. We were rock roll friends for over a decade and a half. Meeting initially on My Space due to her video of DANZIG’s grocery list on YouTube , we wouldn’t meet in person till 2016 although we shared many emails and phone calls. Her butt dialed me often since my name starts with the letter A. I never in life met a more rock n roll woman than Tori.
