That new boy... ( at the McKaine house) [Jul. 15th, 2006|03:54 pm]
The Green Room

[mood |nervousnervous]

"You've been spending an awful lot of time with that new boy lately," Mrs. McKaine remarked. She sat at the table shucking corn for the barbecue they were going to have that afternoon.

"He's a nice boy, Momma," Kayla replied. She was cubing the steak for the kabobs.

"Lucky! All the boys I know are jerks," Maggie said, sighing wistfully as she collected the steak cubes from Kayla and dropped them into the marinade where they'd stew until it was time for cooking.

The boys were outside preparing the backyard and the grill, so it was the perfect time for girl talk in the kitchen.

"Just as long as his intentions are good," Mrs McKaine said. She was proud of how her daughters were growing up, but she worried about them here in Grace Grove. Things were different out here than they were in Kansas.

"Of course they are! You've spoke with him a time or two, you know he's a good boy..." Kayla stopped cutting steak and looked her mother directly in the eyes. "Momma, I know you want the best for us kids, but we're growing up. I'm 19 now... I gotta do what I think is right."

"Like Gil," Maggie said with a giggle.

"Hush up," Kayla chided, picking up a corn husk and flicking it at her sister.

"Missed me," Maggie laughed as she ducked out of the way. In retaliation, she began to sing "Kayla and Gil, sitting in a tree F-u-c-..."

"Maggie! That's quite enough," Mrs McKaine scolded. "Sometimes it's hard to tell you girls are growing up at all."

"Sorry momma," they said in unison.

"That's better. Now, Kayla... I'm sure Gil IS a nice boy, but we haven't had much opportunity to get to talk with him. And if you're going to go stay with him tonight at the practice place--"

"You're SLEEPING OVER with GIL?!" Maggie gasped. "Oh my god! You're letting her sleep over with GIL and I couldn't go on that camping trip with Mary Ellen and Brandy?"

"That's an entirely different matter," Mrs McKaine said, shaking her head. "Kayla's older than you are - she's an adult now, so we can't tell her what to do."

"That's not fair!" Maggie said, stomping her feet. "I'm almost nearly an adult too! If she gets to sleep over with her BOYFRIEND, I should get to go camping with my friends!"

"He's not my--well, okay he is my--- but we're not-- I mean, we're not doing the naughty kind of sleeping over. We're just watching the place," Kayla said.

"I'll bet!" Maggie wasn't convinced.

Mrs. McKaine sighed. Raising children was far from easy sometimes. "Girls, quit your fighting. Kayla, why don't you call Gill on up and invite him over for the barbecue? I'm sure your father and your brothers would like to get a chance to talk to him, too..."

Kayla sighed. "Yes, Momma."

She wasn't sure whether this was a good thing, or a bad one. It might be nice for Gil to meet her family, but she didn't want them to give him the third degree, either. She wasn't sure whether he had work today, but she was pretty sure he might be at Drake's hanging out. If not, she'd dial Matthew and Barry's number and have one of them go down and fetch Gil from the downstairs at their place. Resigning herself to fate, she picked up the phone and dialed.

A plan... [Jul. 15th, 2006|03:23 pm]
The Green Room
[mood |working]

"So here's what I think we should do," Barry said to any of his friends who were there and listening. He was seated at his favorite table in Drake's, one arm around Matty. He'd been spending some time over the past couple of days thinking about this.

"What do you think we should do?" Matty asked.

"Well, first of all, you should kiss me." Barry said with a grin. He couldn't resist. Matty was just too effing cute. After a moment's pause in which to kiss and snuggle, he continued. "Now, on a more band-wide scale... I think we should call that Nick guy and arrange representation. Since it seems like his company checks out, and since we're potentially on the edge of something big here... we're going to need someone to look out for our interests."

He paused a moment, hoping he didn't sound like the stereotypical Jew, thinking about the money. But it wasn't just about that - it was also about their well-being and reputation.

"THEN we should contact this Blue guy about the offer he's making us. Hell, maybe we should let Nick do it - if he's going to be our agent. They do things like that, you know? This way no one's personal feelings about Blue Anarchy one way or the other get involved in the matter, and he can make sure we're getting a fair deal on the up-and-up, contracted and agreed upon so we don't get screwed."

He took a deep breath, wondering when the hell he'd gotten so wise and outspoken about these sort of things. It was only a short time ago that he was living at home and letting his mother pick out his clothes.

"What do you think?"

MTV News, September 14th, 2006 [Jul. 14th, 2006|12:54 pm]

" ... Blue Anarchy has been playing to sold-out venues across the country in this summer's tour. Our correspondent Brad Miller caught up with their frontman, Blue Jackson, after a show in Minneapolis this past weekend."

{Cut to a very sweaty-looking Blue Jackson in a backstage shot. He's wearing a t-shirt that proclaims, "Tofu is People!"}

"It's been a kick. I mean, it's been two years since we've been on the road, so I was a little freaked when the tour kicked off in New York last month, but the fans have just been so great!"

"So, is it true what I've heard about you and Mari Asher?"

"Well, *laughs* I guess that depends on what you've heard."

"I dunno, somehow I wouldn't have put the two of you together ... "

"She has her own style, she's very mainstream-pop, I think she's really good at what she does."

"So, are you two exclusive, or .. ?"

"That's really hard to do. I mean, she's touring, I'm touring, our only contact is by text and email and the occasional phone call. But yeah, she's pretty important to me."

"Any problems on the tour so far?"

"Things have been awesome, actually. We're looking into getting another band to support us, someone closer to our style ... There's this band called Sound and Furious from my hometown who have a lot of potential, I'm trying to get them on the bill as soon as possible."

"Thanks for the info!"

"No worries."

{Blue Jackson waves to the camera ... end clip.}
