Wow...KISS!!!

So, as I mentioned in Furiouswolf's post just before mine, today is my Birthday.

My Son has always been a butthead. I've had conversations about this in PM with several friends here, ha, the Guy just hasn't seemed to be able to get it together.

For the last five or six months tho, there has been a change-good steady job, IMO "giving" more to me and his Mom/my Wife than "taking"-I think we might still pay some of his cellphone bill, but he does "nice" things for both of us constantly.


The little fugger just made me cry...



I guess we are going to see them on their last tour...in Charlotte, no less-ninth friggin row, Gene-side.

Different arena in Charlotte, but my first show was Hot in the Shade, in 1989, with my Mother...

Ninth row, Gene-side.


Turns out, his motivation for getting his **** together was to make this happen(...don't zoom in too close to the tix...OMG...$$$-most know how cheap I am...).


I hate that he went to all the trouble, but is full circle, I guess, he pointed out-I played Creed and Staind songs in bands, but was over them by the time he was a teenager, but I made sure we got to see both of them anytime they came anywhere close, Atlanta, Knoxville, Charlotte.


Nothing to do with gaming, really, sorry for that(I almost cracked out the PS1 KISS pinball in tribute, but it sucks sooo bad...), but I got friends that are chasing concerts as a hobby, and a couple buds here that are hardcore KISS Army, so I figured I'd share how stoked I am.

    Happy birthday! Plus, that is a touching story on how 'butt head' is coming around. Time for you to play some Play Station Kiss Pinball.

    As a kid aged 11 or 12 on holiday in rural France in the 1980s, I spent a lot of time bored out of my tiny skull. That was before I found this in a local bar and proceeded to put all my one-Franc pieces into it. I hope your day today is as good as mine was back then.

    EDIT: I see it was your bday yesterday, oops!

    I've told this story before-

    Moved here to the mountains as a teenager, one of the first things we did was go to a "down home" jamboree at a little store, dozens of people playing musical instruments.


    There was a KISS pinball, dusty, not plugged in, got my Step-Dad to inquire about it.

    Pretty sure I was gonna get it for 500 USD!


    The store, and machine burned to the ground a few days later...

    :(


    Thanks, this was a great Birthday, no question!!!
