May 12, 2002 - Shoebox's Debut / Armageddon Show

The Recap by Azkath...

Zoltan Shoebox Timmy 2Ok, so the rain here started during the show and pretty much has not let up since. Maybe Zoltan was right when he was building the ark. Everything is starting to flood...

Our little musical ritual is complete. If all goes as it should, SOMETHING should happen Wednesday. Maybe it will just keep raining... No sign of Nibiru, but there is that planetary alignment, which completes, I believe, tonight...

Well, what can I say? It was chaos. Moreso than I can ever remember in recent history. First, before the show, I sicked Jeffie on Ithaska. He thinks they liked him. Then I tossed him out of the station and we proceeded with The Last Exit. I dusted off the Wheel of Satan, for maybe the last time, and pushed the button / aka spun the wheel. Vern was there. He was still insane. The wheel fixed that. So, since I had a more sane and unfornately also more annoying Vern (he was actually sort of funny and not irritating when insane - weird...) I had him give away boxes of free stuff. That went well, but it could have gone better. If by some chance, the world is still here next week, we will give away what we have left. Ok, so then the wheel was spun again, and up came Zoltan the Avenger, staight from Hell, with his Denim jacket AND Hawiian shirt, and Fuzzy Hat, and FuzzNubby (Vern's offspring). Then we had a nifty visit from Shoebox of The Worm Quartet. He brought us a Giant Tampon. Kind of him. Hmmm... Then there was some chaos, Friend showed up and, well, Friended everyone. In a really strange moment, which is definitely a sign of the end of the world, Friend put on Zoltan's fuzzy hat, and BECAME Zoltan the Avenger. It was bizarre. And unerving for Zoltan. Eventually, Timmy the Prophet of Doom wandered in and it was all complete. Mayhem was fully underway. Eventually Zoltan decided he wanted to leave. Friend bolted with FuzzNubby. I spun the Wheel of Satan for perhaps the last time, and it disallowed Zoltan back into Hell. Despite not liking Hell, we was upset. Probably just because he wasn't allowed to be there anymore. Satan claimed his excessive grievences were too much for even him. ZTA is now stuck wandering the earth. At the end, there was a great little sing-a-long and the end of the Qabalistic Ritual, bringing us to Kether. And that was it.

As for Shoebox, he brought us some cool stuff, aka two of his older CD's. Check out his webpage at www.wormquartet.com. 

Happy Armageddon!!
