If you’re paying attention to that sort of thing, you will notice that tags for this post are “Books” and “Motley Crue”. Once again, two of my favorite things combine.
Or it was supposed to.
In April or May, I found out that Vince Neil (the lead singer of Motley Crue) was going to publish a book this summer called Crued and Tattoed. I was, of course, first in line at the library for it.
Then, last week, I got an email that plunged me into the depths of despair. The library was canceling my request because the book’s publication date had been postponed.
Postponed!!! What?! When?!
Yeah, til October 2012.
3 more years!!!! Whatever shall I do? I guess I’ll just have to read The Dirt again. le sigh
Go ahead. Guess.
Oh, Okay, I’ll tell you.
It’s the new Motley Crue album! It’s the first album of all new material they’ve done in 10 years. I’m a little bit excited.
Now you get to hear it.
The new Motley Crue song is so awesome. I would link to it, but I can’t figure out how.
Anyway, it’s called Saints of Los Angeles and it is amazing.
Just so you know.
Right up my alley. Let me know how you do!

The American Library Association has this program called Celebrity Read. They have posters of celebrities with books.
Check out this one.
And this one.
I’ve come up with an idea for one, too.
Think they’ll go for it?
Michael has just posted his pix of the concert.
The little ones that all look alike are actually done in burst mode so they can be linked for an animation.
I heart Vince.
Michael and I have sustained noticeable hearing damage. It was so loud, you could feel it in your chest. It was so loud, it was nauseating. It freaking ROCKED!
We were on the 12th row. Way closer than I was in OKC last year. This building is about half the size, but they used the same amount of power as in the Ford Center.
In case you were curious.
Number of hours to Motley Crue concert: 77.
I’m on my way

If you’ll notice, the categories for this entry are Books and Motley Crue. Yes, once again, dear readers, the two are one.
Nerd Girl Rocks Paradise City, by Anne Thomas Soffee, is my new acquisition. It is a memoir about the author’s years as a journalist in Hair Metal L.A. Let’s just say that I knew this book was for me when she quoted Vince Neil in the jacket copy. Hell Yeah! I love this chick. I’ll review it for real after I’ve actually read it.
Marie, you’ve got to see this book. She graduated from College in 1989, I think.
For this lovely bit of info. Apparently, the maker of the Some Kind of Monster movie about Metallica (which my library branch carries, and invariably shelves on the kids’ movie rack !) is going to do a movie about Tommy Lee! So probably not a “home movie”. Quite excited.
Because I usually am… They are coming to my town!!!! Last spring, I drove 120 miles to see them in concert. Now, I get to see them in my own town. You cannot imagine how excited I am! Maybe the overload of exclamation points will get the point across!!!
Please note the new icon in your browser window. Thanks to Michael. For those of you not in the know, that is an umlaut over the heart. You know. Like the unnecessary umlauts in Spinal Tap and Motley Crue. Well, I don’t know how to do them on the computer, but trust me. They’re there.
I danced a jig and gave Leslie a hug for this.
I was at Bible study so I generated some comment. Hee!
I love birthdays!
Guess what’s going on my Christmas list?
I would have written yesterday but my superlong fingernails were still attached and I couldn’t type. Here’s a picture from the party. I hope. I’ve never done this before.
Tomorrow night is the Halloween party lesliejoy and her husband are throwing. A week ago, I wasn’t even sure we were going, but we now have costumes and babysitters and are all set.
What are we going as, you ask? Well. Get ready for a big surprise. Are you sitting down? Continue reading
Apparently, Tommy Lee of Motley Crue was injured in a pyrotechnic mishap at a concert in Wyoming. He’s been released, and the Crue is not cancelling any shows.
My boy Vince was injured in Atlanta some weeks ago. What the hell is going on with these guys?
If you were a member at Motley.com, you could see the new Motley Crue video, too. Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait till you see it on VH1.
I’ve heard this twice, now. From 2 different sources, so it must be true.
Vince Neil is coming out with a new wine. Called Vince. I can hardly wait. I’ll be staking out the liquor store. Sleeping on the sidewalk. Just like getting Motley Crue tickets!
