At last!

Now there’s a way to make doing nothing even easier!

In the interest of full disclosure, I’ve worked as a host. And I use the word “worked” about as loosely as one can. So let’s do this right. *clears throat*

A beer that is not Budweiser and doesn’t want to be sued presents: Real Avatars of Awesome.
(singer: REAL AVATARS OF AWESOME!)

Today, we salute you, Mr. or Ms. Club Host.
(singer: MR. OR MS. AS THE CASE MAY BE!)

You don’t sing, you don’t play an instrument, you don’t stream a carefully selected playlist.
(singer: SCREW YOU THAT’S TOO MUCH LIKE WORK!)

But when new folks to the club who don’t know anyone yet show up, you’re there to greet them.
(singer: HI STRANGER! JOIN OUR GROUP KTHX!)

When people get too comfortable with talking in the privacy of IMs, you’re there to make sure the screen doesn’t stay unflooded by gestures.
(singer: EVERYBODY MAKE SOME NOISE!)

When people in the group are doing something else, you’re always there to make sure they know every half hour just what they’re missing.
(singer: IT’S NOT A PARTY WITHOUT YOU; FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GET OVER HERE!)

When people in the group “accidentally” disable notices, you rise above and beyond the call of duty by posting messages in the group IM.
(singer: HERE’S THE SLURL AND THE SLURL AND THE SLURL ONE MORE TIME!)

And for all your hard work, you collect more in tips in a night than a content creator will make all week.
(singer: HOOOOOO’S GOT THE LAST LAUGH NOW BITCHEZ?)

So here’s to you, Mr. or Ms. Club Host. You are a Real Avatar of Awesome.
(singer: REEEAL AVATARS OF AWESOOOME!)

Cat Agus Cu LIVE at Grizzy’s Cafe – Tues 2/3 6PM SLT

Join Cat Agus Cu on Tuesday night, the 3rd of February, as we play at the new and improved Grizzy’s Cafe in North Bound. Some great renovations have been made since the last time we played at Grizzy’s–but don’t worry, Steve the cat is still there! Come hear Archimides and Mistletoe play their blend of Irish and Scottish traditional tunes, with a few modern folk songs thrown in just ’cause. We’ll see you Tuesday night at Grizzy’s!

About the venue: Grizzy’s Cafe is a PG hangout, so as much as you enjoyed us cussin’ a blue streak before, you won’t get to hear it this time. It’s a modern/present-day setting with a casual atmosphere.

Dead Man Blues – Starts Jan. 10th

Starting January 10th at Hotlanta Blues.


The year is 1949, and there’s been a murder in the streets of the fictional neighborhood of Hotlanta. The victim, one Blues Linden, was gunned down in cold blood, left in an alley to be found later by some poor bum, who reported it to the police. Chief Archie Skytower is on the job, and won’t rest until the killer gets brought to justice.

Grouchy Old Elf

I’m strapped this week. I have exactly enough in savings for one more week of rent on my parcel (which will come due on Friday) and then that’s it. I haven’t gone out–nor have any of my alts–because we can’t spare enough for tips. I wasn’t scheduled to host at Hotlanta all this past week, and yet…well, I feel guilty for saying it, but I don’t really mind. I’d like hosting at a club if it weren’t for the damn people. I don’t mean most of the people who go to dance and chat and socialize; I mean the chatspammers with their fucking HOOOO!s and -vV-HOWLZ-Vv-es and talking tummies and flooding ASCII crap. I can’t STAND it. I don’t see how anyone CAN. And when I’m “on the clock” I feel like I have to be extra nice and hospitable and not complain about it.
