Whew... they are starting to pile up on me, so lemme knock out some right now for you. Get your calendars at the ready...

1.) Social Media Club Atlanta is Wednesday April 4 at 6:30pm at Earthlink. Details here. RSVP as soon as you can.

2.) Slim Chance and the Convicts are playing Smith's Olde Bar this Wednesday April 4, opening for Wayne "the Train" Hancock. It will be an evening of real roots oriented country music. Showtime is 9PM Sharp, and the cover is $12 adv. & $15 at the door. Welcome to the Redneck Underground. (Slim also was our first ever TG musical guest. What a legend!)

2.) Deja Blue, the TrueGritz kinda sorta house band, will be playing 3X this spring! Now where else can you hear "(Blaming It All On The) Lights of Broadway" as a bluegrass, kickass tune? Only with Deja Blue. According to Mark, their upcoming shows are:
  • Saturday, April 7th, @ 8:25 pm: we'll be performing a set for the WRFG "Georgia Grown" Bluegrass festival ( A.K.A., Peach Blossom Festival) at the State Farmer's Market, Exhibition Hall. Bands will be playing from 11:00 am to 10:00 PM. Definitely a slice of life. We'd love to see you there.
  • Thursday, April 19th, @ 9:00-ish, we'll be headlining at the Red Light Cafe. Come early, bring your acoustic instrument, and jam before the show. (NOTE: Pauline Ashley-Wilkes threatening to sing backup vocals at this pre-gig event.)
  • Saturday, May 12th @ 8:00 PM, we are performing at the Red Top Mountain State Park. Great camping opportunity!

3.) Tania keeps (monogamous, romantic) hope alive here.

4.) James Marlow kicks-off his campaign for Georgia's 10th Congressional tomorrow, Tuesday April 3. Disclosure: I'm going to be supporting this campaign, so if you don't like hearing about it, too bad, leave a comment.

5.) Caroline Monroe has her biggest Athens, GA gig to date, coming up April 26 at 8 p.m. at The Melting Point. Support the South's most gorgeous country music new voice.

6.) Save the date for the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper annual River Revival party on Thursday, May 10th at Park Tavern at Piedmont Park. This is an awesome party with dancin' and Dames A'Flame and food and booze and bluegrass, and also a fundraiser to help keep Georgia's rivers, and our drinking water here in Atlanta, clean. I'm on the host committee again too, so if you buy tickets online, please list me as your host committee member.

Just so you don't show up wondering where everyon is, the Social Media club meeting is on Wednesday, not Tuesday. :)

And nothing about the biggest event in GA all year that happens this week? Hint: dimples are involved.

Y'all have fun at the social media thing. Rusty and I will try to actually make it to the one in May.

From Playboy cover girl Ashley Massaro, to Porn Star and "Surreal Life" celebrity China Doll, the WWE is now the new porn.

“It’s no secret, the WWE needs to pull their pants up and wrestle, and stop being the blue collar porn company to the world,” says porn pastor and founder of, Craig Gross.

On April 28th in Atlanta, Georgia, Gross and XXXchurch will host “Unscripted,”
a no-holds-barred wrestling event designed to settle the porn debate in the ring.
Event times are 6pm and 10pm at Center Stage, 1374 West Peachtree Street. Tickets are $15.00. The event is happening on the eve of “BACKLASH,” one the biggest WWE pay-per view events.

Gross will debate Legendary Porn Star Ron Jeremy in the ring for the “Porn Debate Title.

A host of former WWE stars like The Million Dollar Man, Burtis the Beefcake Barber, Greg the Hammer Valentine and Superfly Jimmy Snuka will also be in the ring that night. Four matches and one raucous Ladder match guarantee a good time without WWE porn infringing on the crowd.

Unscripted also features multi-platinum and gold recording group Stryper who will take the ring and join XXXchurch in fighting porn in the wrestling world. Stryper will throw out hundreds of Jesus Loves Porn Star Bibles to the crowd as they perform.

Unscripted wants to level the playing field on organizations like the WWE.

“It’s no secret the girls of the WWE all come out of porn backgrounds or find their way there when the WWE is done with them,” says Gross, “It’s sad the WWE helps beautiful young ladies turn into daily porn divas,” he continues.
