    Every two years or so, I have a treatment on my face to prevent cancerous growths (of which I've had a few). Thing is, while I'm doing it I look like the survivor of a nuclear blast. I am going to take this face on a gig this Saturday night. I am the baddest bass-player on the planet. For another week, anyway. :D

    Safety first! Just had a mole checked myself.
     
  3. Not as brave as a child with a permanent disfigurement on his way to school for the first time.
    Good luck with your treatments & the gig!

    Aaaand POP goes Bunk's bubble of positivity :roflmao: Good thing we're here to give one and all an occasional harsh reality check :thumbsup:

    Seriously @Bunk McNulty, I think you have the best mindset for dealing with the circumstances. I'm honest enough to admit that I'm too vain to not be disturbed by the idea of people snapping photos while I'm onstage, so I'd probably use the sitch as an excuse to add a visually interesting (yet concealing) benefit of a rad mask.

    I give you credit for being brave ... no matter what he or anybody else says. You be you, and rock their faces off :bassist:

  5. I'm not trying to be mean, just a different perspective, i.e. you don't have it so bad...

    BTW, some of you would be shocked at how wildly I've let my beard grow, but I'm not one to worry about appearance.

    add:

    If the gig is Saturday night, won't it be dark?

    Tie your eye brows to your hair that's above your ears. Then tie your back hairs to the back of your head. Nobody will notice the flakes.

    I know by your posts here that you weren't trying to be mean :D just matter of fact. It's just a perfect example of how the written word might come across without knowing the source can sometimes lead to somebody getting unnecessarily butthurt over something. Personally, I always appreciate your input in any thread ... dunno if Bunk knows who he's dealing with, tho :roflmao: It's all good

    I could. And I would! Except this girl I live with keeps trimming my brows. I'm going to ask her right now to knock it off. Not sure how that will go over. Um....If I'm not posting again in the next hour, someone might want to call an ambulance.

    Yup. BTDT. Even worse.
    Fluorocacil cream?

  11. I actually lifted the idea from that new movie, but it's a true story:

    Btw, @Bunk McNulty, I always enjoy your photos in the 'Gigs' threads, and think its neat to see what other TBers look like. It's irritating to me that some won't even post their closest cities location in their profile, let alone would never take off the tin foil hat long enough to let a picture they like of themselves slip out there for fear of I don't know what. So I thought you were plenty brave before this thread :thumbsup: I just appreciate a little info on who I'm exchanging ideas with.

    Very true. Mind you, I 'm not sure I want to see what some of the folks on here look like. Some of 'em sound scary.

    @Bunk McNulty I know you probably don't need telling but make sure to keep out of the heat of any spotlights on stage.
    Keep on rockin'!

    You bet! I don't mind looking scary once every other year. It keeps my skin from trying to kill me. :D

    I'm back. She's not going for it. At least she hasn't chased me out of the place.

    Eh, I gave up on vanity a long time ago. Hey, I know: I'll announce that I am a survivor of a nuclear blast. :D

    P.S.: When I'm out there with Jane and the guys, I am always gonna rock. It's all I know how to do.

    Indeed. If you can post a mug shot on a public forum you definitely got this.

    How about having some fun with it?. Get the band to agree on doing a costume night where everyone goes zombie or their favorite superhero or villain. This would be the greatest opportunity for me to look like one of the MISFITS or King Diamond. I would be all over this.:thumbsup:
