Frontalot Fall Tour 2011: Arrrrrrkansas. And St. Louis.

I was going to start this post off with a pirate joke, but a quick browse of the archives alerted me to the fact that I would be repeating myself.  Instead, I will be merely laudatory and state that Arkansas truly is a glory hole of natural splendor.  Most states are a chore to drive [...]

Frontalot Fall Tour 2011: Days 1-3, Austin, TX

Holy consistency, Batman!  The blog du Vic returns for another exciting season of tour minutiae, replete with questionable facts, perilously fancy prose and banal photographs made all funny-like by the use of alt tags.  Who can resist?  Not you.  Nor should you, for in this modern world of tweets and wee bitly links there is [...]

Frontalot Fall 2010 Tour Diary Days 17-19: Cleveland & Ann Arbor BLOW OUR MINDS

“OH MY GOD THAT’S PAUL RUDD!” exclaimed the drunken man in the backwards-facing baseball cap as his SUV barreled by the stage door of the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland.  He was yelling at me.  “I LOVE YOU MAN!”  This would have startled and puzzled me had the exact same thing not happened to me only [...]

Frontalot Fall Tour Diary Days 2-5: Northampton & Hamden

WARNING: This post contains moody, spooky and downright weird photos.  I’ve been on something of an artsy photo kick lately, due largely to the awesome capabilities of my new-ish EVO 4G paired with the vintage effects of Camera360.  I post about it, you get to see it.  The upshot is that the contents of the [...]

Frontalot Tour Diary: Pax Prime 2010, pt. 2

I admit it: I failed to live up to my promise.  There was no tour diary entry yesterday.  That said, there is a good reason: I’ve been having a @#&% blast!  I decided to have my cake and jump out of it too on Friday night by watching the Protomen tear down the hall with [...]

Frontalot Tour Diary: PAX 2010 pt. 1

Greeting and salutations! Vic-20 is back in the game and coming at you live from the Fairmont Olympic here in lovely Seattle, where I sit and rest my weary feet which have covered an ungodly amount of convention-hall ground during this first official day of the 2010 Penny Arcade Expo, better known as PAX Prime.  [...]

Frontalot Tour Diary Day 6: North Carolina, Pt. 2

You know what makes me sneeze, besides accidentally yanking out a hair while fastidiously removing all obstructions from my nose?  Pollen.  It is yellow, it is everywhere, and it is airborne.  I haven’t seen pollen like this since I spent my springs on Long Island.  It is both fascinating and a terrible nuisance.  Thankfully, it [...]

Frontalot Tour Diary Day 1: On The Road

Hello again from the wonderful world of touring!  I am presently on tour with MC Frontalot, the father of nerdcore hip-hop, and we are stopped for the evening at an Econolodge in the lovely Shenandoah Valley, where the gas stations and fast-food restaurants stretch as far as the eye can see.  Today was a mostly [...]
