Mission Accomplished! Final Teaser Fliers

Hey all Metro here.  One of my biggest pet peeves is people being "too nice".  Of course my detractors will say that I am "too mean", which I admit can be true.  Today is one of those days.....

So this was just posted today with the caption "Mission Accomplished".  I have already taken the time to alter it to promote the final JCM show (more on that later).
Now I like Woodman.  His positivity is infectious and he seems to really care, although I am not a fan of him no-selling all of the corruption in Hamtown.  Well, to each, their own...

My problem with the pic is the caption "Mission Accomplished" when it should have been "Missed Opportunity".  I think what really set me off were the comments.  For example, from "Worst Kept Secret Lee": "This is classic."  And then the actual mayor of Hamtramck Karen Majewski: "OMG You have made me so proud of Hamtramck."  Ummmmm what?  For what?  Its two geezers on vacation taking a picture where hundreds take every day.  My bulldog advocate said, "Too bad the secret service didn't come out," while rolling his eyes.  I corrected him saying, "I disagree.  The fact they Didn't is telling.  If they did, NOW you would have a story. As it is, it's just two guys looking for likes on FB for going to DC from MI...and with no context."  I would wager they weren't even the "wackiest" dressed tourists that day.

Take a second and think if the roles were reversed.  Well okay, I'd be in jail, and I'm not even that political, but this is just a missed opportunity.  And worst of all, too safe.  Before I get to the final batch of teaser fliers I have a prediction....no actually a spoiler.  This pic will be used for every Caveman/Bam Bam show flier/press pic for the next two years.  Maybe that was the Mission after all.  I could have shopped that with better lighting if that was the case. So that is the reason I am jumping the predictable gun and using it as the headliner for the final batch of teaser fliers for a teaser of a flier for a yet to be revealed show.  That way, whenever it is recycled via lame local media or social media to promote the same ole' local shows, a tiny tiny bit of everybody will think...JCM did it first.

Alright, lets stop being evil and get to the final batch of teaser fliers.  So far we have had two venues, possibly three, already cancel after confirming (??!!), not to mention me getting kicked off the Seven Nation Army/Hart Plaza thing that absolutely nobody has talked about, so I have to keep it vague for now.  But all the teaser fliers will be available at the final show, signed by me, with all money going to various charities.  So lets stop sounding so sad and get to the teasers!!

I have no words. What can I do to get a JCM parody flier of me?

Nothing about Detroit. Nothing about Hamtramck. Not any type of statement. Just two guys on a road trip

Woodman and his buddy are legends in their own minds. These losers play a gig every weekend and draw zero money. Yet somehow they are seen as hero's. A hero would actually stand up to the child molesters who run his so called record label, instead he'd rather spend his time dressed as a ghetto caveman and posing in front of the White house, Mission accomplished! Wow that's sooooo edgy.

Yikes. It looks like I was in a particularly grumpy mood when I wrote my take (happening more and more; getting worse). Every now and then I think back to early 2017 after JCM were removed from HamFest due to them caving in to Queen Kwong. Soon after I got an e-mail from my bulldog with numerous links to documented corruption within the Fest along with, and especially, the Ben's Encore charity. The title of the e-mail was something like "Have You Seen This?" I stewed about going live with it and ran it by a trusted confidant, one of my best friends and he said "Awww man it is what it is. Just let them have fun." As the Constant Readers know, I ran with it, proving the Fest committee to be frauds and the charity a hoax (that was later fixed). Its too late now, but with the Woodman pic, maybe I should have just bit my lip and let them have fun. Now, I assure you Constant Readers that I am not backtracking in any way. I still think its silly and the comment from the Hamtram mayor still gets under my skin. But sometimes it's just cool to have fun. The potentially valid point in the comment above about child molesters will be addressed at a later date, before the blog shutdown of Oct. 8th.

For wrestling fans, Woodman is the Roddy Hogan of local music. The only thing that matters is a picture (look at the Jack White one on FB). And he's like Roddy Hogan because he is all about the attention, but gives zero rub to any other act.
