MUSIC SCHOOL: ZACH THE MAN...AND THEN SOME

The first finished product was ready for preview by the actors and executives over at Ballbusting Boys Buffalo.

Alex looked over at Jimmy. “From what I know of this project, I am not sure if the old title Zach the Cheater will be enough to cover the wider concept.”

Zach, sitting in the corner chair, looked up, “I don’t think it is enough for my ego.”

Alex smiled, “Thanks, Zach.” Looking at Jimmy, he continued, “Anyway, do you have a new title or a working title?”

“Yes.”

“What is it?”

Zach the Man.”

Somewhat surprised, Alex repeated, “Zach the Man?”

MUSIC SCHOOL: ZACH, SAMMY AND A SWOLLEN SACK

Jimmy stood and looked with pride on the new music studio. Bobby walked up to Jimmy with his hands on his hips.

“Alex is due here any minute. How do you think he is going to react to this new music studio in his big loft?”

“We’ll see.”

“You didn’t ask him.”

“Well, he wants theme songs and that, doesn’t he?”

“I would think so, but --"

“We need recording space, then. Mr. Mallone doesn’t have the money to be spending on studios.”

“Jimmy, it would have been nice to at least inform Alex. You two are colleagues.”

“I don’t exactly call all the shots. Mr. Mallone decided to put the studio here.”

“Evidently. By the way, you’ll be gaining two new musicians.”

MUSIC SCHOOL: NEW BEGINNING IN A NEW STUDIO

The fake diamonds reflected around the “Andrews, Murdock and Silverstein” sign hanging proudly in the Lobby.

Bobby looked up from his magazine, “What the hell takes lawyers so long? Why couldn’t we go in?”

Joey responded, “Well, it seems that Alex, Jimmy and Salvatore are the only three they need beside Mr. Mallone.”

“Maybe we should ask to get in.”

“No.”

“Dude --"

“No, I, myself, am just going to sit here and read magazines…even if it be Golf Digest.”

“That has to be worse than the All-Golf Channel.”

“No, better. This way, you don’t have to listen to the commentators make comments on how the ball just ‘sits on the sand like a beached whale.’ You know, no stupid comments like that.”

MUSIC SCHOOL: PIANOS AND PINK BRIEFS

The phone rang at Bobby’s, waking him out of bed early for a Saturday. “H-h-hello.”

“Drop your cock and pick up your socks. Let’s go. It’s piano day today. I took Mrs. Birch to breakfast. We’re on the way to get you.”

“Ummm….”

“Are you jerking off?”

“No.”

“Then what the hell are you waiting for?”

“OK, OK. I’ll be ready in fifteen minutes.”

“Alright, I’ll be there.”

Click. Bobby got out of bed and stood before his full length mirror. He reached down into his boxers and took his balls in his hand, thinking, Poor babies…I wonder what’s going to happen to you today.

MUSIC SCHOOL: JIMMY AND ALEX MEET….PER CHANCE

Rolling his eyes in frustration as the time ticks away, Jimmy looked over at Bobby. “I’m going to go out and get some fresh air. Call me when the guy is ready.”

“Alright, man,” Bobby said while reading Newsweek.

Walking outside, Jimmy looked to his left and saw a guy sitting outside an office building down the block. Wearing a shirt and jeans? Outside an office building? In Buffalo? It’s a wonder Security hasn’t run him off. He figured, what the hell?

Approaching him, he is not sure if he should. Too late! “Hey, man, how are you?”

Looking surprised, he said, “I’m doing well. You?”

“I am well. You’re kind of underdressed for this section of the city.”

“I don’t see you wearing a three-piece suit. Anyway, my name is Alex.” He extended his hand.

“Jimmy,” he said as he shook his hand. “So, what brings you down here?”

MUSIC SCHOOL: THE CONCEPTION

Pacing back and forth in front of the record player, Jimmy’s mind was riding the violins until….

“Hey, dude,” Bobby said as he poked him. “When are you going to stop listening to the Ronettes and get to writing our songs?”

“When I rip your balls off,” he replied as he grabbed Bobby’s balls through his jeans.

“Whoa! Dude!” Bobby put his hands up. “OK, OK. I’m sorry.”

Jimmy released his balls, just to give them a quick slap. As Bobby grimaced, he said, “Now, you know that when I listen to Uncle Phil, I am pissed off. You know that, when I am pissed off, I could very well suspend your sex life for a good while.” Bobby nodded as he continued, “Now take your happy, or not so happy, ass over there and sit down.” As Bobby walked away, he motioned to Joey, “Get him a beer. He needs one.”

Bobby watched him pace from the couch. Noticing him, Jimmy kept pacing as the record faded out. Joey, bringing Bobby his beer, said, “That broad has a hell of a voice.”

“I know. That broad is Ronnie Spector. She has a name,” Jimmy responded.

“I think Bobby here should sing along with her. Play that record again.”

Music is in the air

Today, I received an e-mail from a young musician called Jimmy. He included a picture – and although I’ve seen a lot, I was very impressed.

Jimmy is 18 years old, a brunette with grey-blue eyes. His body is pretty muscular and slightly hairier than most 18 year olds’. Apart from his handsome face, the most impressive thing about him is the big bulge in his jeans. I’m quite an expert in that field, so let me tell you that Jimmy has everything it takes to make it big in our business…

He offered to share some stories about him and his buddies trying to create a band. Of course I said yes.

Welcome to ballbustingboys, Jimmy!
