It's OK, it's our birthday.  A year ago today, Jawsh and I (A.J.) started our Semi Precious Weapons' Fansite.
We started with 3 Followers: Jawsh, myself, and Semi Precious Weapons.  Now we've grown quite a bit. (Not as much as we would ideally like, but we'll take it :) )

We don't expect anyone to read this WHOLE post.  But it's nice to take a trip down memory lane.

Jawsh and myself have been super SPW fans ever since high school.  Jawsh introduced me to their music, in his broke down sable and at the time we just called them country-glam.  We were the fucked up high school kids that loved to talk shit and act like girls and Semi Precious Weapons was basically the soundtrack of our lives.  We had bought tickets to the Perez Hilton Presents tour in KC but couldn't make the trip so we never thought we would get the chance to see them live. Until the end of 2009, when we heard they were opening for the Monster Ball.  We had to get tickets. We couldn't afford front row tickets since they were meet & greet, so we made a joint bank account at Bank of America and put all of our money in ($340.00) and bought the two front-row tickets ($700.00) and made payments on our overdraft fees.  WE WERE SO DESPERATE TO GO!

We finally made it to St. Louis for the MB after driving through a snow storm on January 7th, 2010 and it was  time for the show to start.  The security guards told us we couldn't stand during the show because, as he put it, "this band's bassist is REAL crazy and he likes to swing around his instrument" so Jawsh and I started the show in our seats..until Dan, Stevy, and Cole started pounding out the intro to 'Semi Precious Weapons'. Justin came out and it was all over. We were starstruck.  He handed the microphone to myself and Jawshua during 'Magnetic Baby' and we got to scream out the lyrics at the top of our lungs.  WE FELT LIKE FUCKING SUPERSTARS.  And that feeling still hasn't stopped.

We drove back home and realized how much we fucking love this band, and we totally wanted to make a site ASAP. And Voila! We have since got to hand deliver champagne to the boys and meet mama/papa tranter. Who, if you're reading this, are AMAZINGLY nice people!

Anywho.. point being is we love these boys. And we love you too. And more importantly, You Love You.
Let's have another great year!

Semi Precious Weapons SHIT on Las Vegas!

SPW, in their glamorous fashion, straight up DUMPED on Vegas.  Starring in "Pauly Shore’s: Vegas Is My Oyster”, a variety show that took place Sunday at the Pearl Concert Theater. The show was recorded to air as a cable TV special, that will reportedly be hitting the cable-network Showtime, later this year.

The show was stocked with a great assortment of celebs: The ever-combustible Andy Dick, Carrot Top, Dave Navarro, Charlyne Yi (“Semi-Pro,” “Knocked Up”), Faizon Love (“Couples Retreat, “Def Comedy Jam”), Maz Jobrani (“Axis of Evil” tour, “Friday After Next”), April Macie (who was voted the “Hottest Female Comic” on Howard Stern’s multimedia show). The taped skits star, among others, Tom Green and Bobby Lee ("Mad TV," "Pineapple Express"), which will be part of the special.

Justin Tranter with Pauly Shore at the Adult Video News Awards writes:
"The Adult Video News Awards Show must have been a total blast, judging by all the pictures of the NSFW event that went down at Las Vegas' Palms Casino Resort on Saturday.

One person who really had a good time: Semi Precious Weapons singer Justin Tranter, who stormed the red carpet in a pair of silver glitter stiletto boots, with comedian Pauly Shore on his arm.

But the statement fashion didn't end there. Tranter also appeared to be wearing a shirt emblazoned with his own image. Is there anything more beautiful than self-love?"
