Phoenix Jones Returns To The Streets!

I am sure everyone has heard that Phoenix Jones, Seattle’s premiere real life super hero was arrested on October 9th for apparently pepper spraying some people who he mistook for fighting. They claim however that they were merely horsing around, leading the rainy city’s most popular super hero to being arrested. My thoughts? Could these people have been plants sent to set up and ruin Jones forever?! Quite possible. But my words to Phoenix is don’t give up, I mean seriously look at all the fucked up shit that has happened to Spider-man or say Daredevil over the years! They’ve done a lot more than pepper spray the wrong people and they never stopped the fight. So what now if  your secret identity has been revealed to the world-there are a lot of super heroes that don’t let that get in the way. Everyone knows Steve Rogers is Cap!

Well apparently he already considered all these things because word on the street is that Phoenix Jones HAS actually hit the streets again according to the Everett Herald, it seems that the prosecutors declined to file charges. It makes you wonder if Jones has a foggy Nelson type character in his life helping him out? Or perhaps the people just realized the obvious-life’s a lot more rad knowing you have a real life super hero patroling your city!!

Phoenix Jones: Seattle’s Finest Super Hero!

Today I just discovered this news story that somehow slipped under my radar and it’s a pretty good one! Now this is the kinda news I can really get behind! Phoenix Jones is not a comic book character, but the Northwests finest real life super hero.

Unlike almost all other “real life super heroes” that mostly just walk around in a costume and hand out food to homeless people (which is admirable) Jones actually fights crime! He’s been on the news now several times, had guns pulled on him, been stabbed, beaten up and actually stopped crimes from happening! check this out…

The Seattle Weasel Experience!

Tomorrow evening I’m heading off to Seattle to ultimately end up friday evening to see one of my all-time fav punk rock bands Screeching Weasel! I’m pretty pumped as when I first heard them in 1990 they quickly went into heavy rotation as a soundtrack to my highschool years. Their album “My Brain Hurts” is one of the best punk albums of all time hands down. Now they’re back again in 2010 and it turns out a buddy of mine is actually in the band playing bass leading to me being on the guest list at the show(whoa-o-o-a-oh)!

Formed in 1986 these guys have been crankin’ out some of the snottiest anthems of the 80’s and 90’s and hey their from Chicago-near my old stompin’ ground, Wisconsin. Besides Illinois is really just the little brother state to the dairyland anyway. So in honor if this dork rockin’ this friday check out a couple tracks from the midwests best, Screeching Weasel…
