RETRO KIMMER: BIRTHDAY PARTY AT MARIOS!



Last night (Saturday 2-19-11) Kimmer made the hour long trek out to Troy, MI (John R and 15 Mile) to party for our birthday and all our pals born in February. It was just the most fabulous party!

We also hung out with Dane Gussin, Ira Paul and Skid n Carrie. Thanks Skid n Carrie for the Mario's Pizza guys... our table was the loudest and rowdiest table in that club! Susie Forkin worked hard to make it such a fun night too.... Thanks DOLL

It was Rick Ruiner's actual birthday yesterday so the party was really about Ricky. Holly brought me a cake with Happy Birthday Kimmer on it and it was just way cool... Heck it's out in the jeep right now! Think we'll buzz outside and grab it. Susie Forkin gave me a beautiful bouquet as well... also in the car! Thank you girls so much!!! xxooK

Didn't have a real cake on my actual birthday this year. Did have a really huge Sangria spritzer instead. Last night I had a Merlot spritzer Very colorful drink with lovely calming properties as well to ease one into another year.... :)



There was a cupcake (cake) too made out of clown cupcakes. Very neat and I shot a cool photo of one of the clowns. Used on of Hatter's best flashlights to light up the clown's head. Love it! I am not a clown phobic. Clowns don't scare me unless they have an attorney with them....Clown Cupcake reminds me of....?



The Seatbelts tore it up last night and of course we were all dancing to my fav " My Little F4" Greg Upshur is so much fun to watch. He sings great too but is just a great showman. You are never disappointed after their set.

It was a great night as I finally got to meet photographer extraordinaire Dane Gussin. Great guy and good friend of Kimmer's. Can't wait to see the shots Dane and Richard Blondy got last night.. I was kind of laided back as the pros were there. Ira Paul was shooting too. We had a flash bulb city going at our table. Thanks Rhonda for the hair style last night!

See the gorgeous fresh water pearl necklace Holly Shay brought me? It is too die for! She makes these herself! Way coooolio...

Great to see so many dear friends last night! Johnny Bee Badanjek (love him), one of my most favorite was there relaxing... Jim and Andrea Edwards, Mary Cobra of The Detroit Cobras and Tino Gross of The Howling Diablos were all in the crowd cheering or dancing with the Ruiners...

Ricky was really "on" last night. :P He snuck up blew in my ear a couple times when I wasn't looking. It was just scandalous!

Shot some lazy video last night. I was having too much fun to work and dancing instead of hold the camera still. Baby Baby Baby!



We had a fantastic time last night. So many photogs and cameras flying everywhere. It was a blast being Kimmer with Lisa and Holly. These girls are going with me to more gigs... Lisa and I are twisted sisters from another planet! We'll have to go shoot one of Lisa's gigs too.

Even enjoyed the long ride back to my Ann Arbor home. Doesn't it always feel so great to be back home and in your own domain once more? Dig it! Our next gig is most likely going to be with Michael Davis in Mt Clemens (April 9) and Deniz Tek/Heather Harris in Ann Arbor with the Stooges (April 19)... Mr. Twister is coming to my town!! We can't wait to meet the handsome charmer from Christopher Milk and Chainsaw!

Have a great Sunday! xxooK
