Thursday Thirteen with Good Intentions

Thirteen Good Intentions Gone Bad
What’s the saying? The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions?

1. The time the video director pitched an idea that had the ShapeShifter boys dancing. DANCING.

2. The time Kerri went to pick up a package at the post office, only to find it had come $3.50 postage due because it had been wrapped wrong and she only had $2 on her. She refused the package, which had been one of those nice gestures on the part of someone else — but not for $3.50.

3. The time the band found a key lime pie in their dressing room. It wasn’t on their contracted tour rider; the promoter had thought it was a nice touch and got whiny when the band asked him to remove it. It didn’t touch him nearly so nicely when Mitchell made him wear it.

4. The sound engineer in the recording studio who forgot to push PLAY.

5. From time to time, Kerri meets someone who expected Kerry Voss, male artist, and not Kerri Voss, female.

6. The time Eric was offered an endorsement deal for a new guitar — but only if he’d never play his current ones again.

7. The new employee of the record label who had heard that Mitchell would be mean to her, so instead of asking him for lyrics for the new disc’s booklet, she did her best to interpret what she heard.

8. The time Kerri was asked to create the art for an event whose cancellation no one told her about.

9. The time the band opened a box of new t-shirts, only to find that the silver ink was red, the shirt itself was orange, and the whole thing looked like bloody puke.

10. Let’s not forget the newspaper reporter who tried to write a flattering article but confused ShapeShifter with … well, they’re still trying to figure that one out. But according to this person, who may or may not have ever heard the band, ShapeShifter is Satanic. Glad someone forgot to inform the band of that…

11. A local crew member, coming up to Trevor from behind, thought he was a woman. In that person’s defense, his hair was waist-length at the time and, from the back, he could be confused with a woman hippie… who wears biker boots and a chain connecting the wallet in his back pocket to a belt loop. And… well, you get the idea.

12. Someone filling in for Mitchell’s tech once strung Mabel upside-down. It may have been a joke, but the joke was on him when Mitchell broke Mabel over the guy’s back.

13. Often, at a backstage appearance, a guy will pull a CD (in the old days, a cassette tape — remember those?) out of a pocket and ask Daniel to listen to his demo. Daniel’s always willing — but once, the guy had given him a ShapeShifter disc, and no contact information so Daniel could make the swap.

Hey, groupies! Other than #2, which just happened to me in real life today, would you like to see any of these turned into outtakes? Given time and interest, I just might do it for you. ’cause I love you guys and all.

    #8 — Poor Kerri! Who was the culprit?

    May 22, 2008 10:00 pm

    It must be fun to be able to completely misbehave and still have people willing to throw themselves at your feet to do your bidding! Not that I would misuse this power if I ever happened to become one of these people. muhahahaha 😉

    I’m late to everything but in my defense I was practicing for the duet show. Oh, and talking to a hot dude from Scotland who was bored and wanted to flirt with me. *sigh* Darrie is the best flirt ever and gives me oodle of tmi sexual tidbits. One day I’ll tell you what he told me. 😉 BR/BR/Rott’s been mistaken for a woman from behind before. Waist length corkscrew curls (natural of course) and a narrow hipped perfect ass in faded 501s. Of course, I like him better in a damp towel…
