Saving Lives Through The Radio

Just recently I, and co-owner of Your Mom Comics Ted Osborne, started Volunteering at our local Radio Station, KSQM 91.5 FM. At first i did it to work my way in to radio, maybe even get my band Jack Havoc on there, but now have found that I am actually helping in a huge way.See, KSQM is not a normal Radio Station. Our programming director asked “What kind of business do you think were in?” I said “Well entertainment of course.” He said “No. We are in the business of saving lives.” KSQM 91.5 is the only FM radio station on The Olympic Peninsula to run off of a generator. That means if there is ever a Tsunami or Hurricane warning, we are the only people that can reach out to others in their homes. In a few months we will be getting our Emergency Broadcast System Certificate and be officially ready to broadcast, if need be.
Two Fridays ago I read the news live, just local Christmas stuff, but now the owner wants to give me and Ted our own show, with 18 full episodes ( that’s a whole season) and we get to produce it, with the goal being syndication, meaning if another station wants to buy and broadcast it, they can. It will be about the history of old radio shows like The Adventures of Superman, The Lone Ranger etc. and how they’ve have influenced entertainment and real life, many of us included.
Hey did you know that Green Hornet is actually a spin off of The Lone Ranger. Britt Reid is the Lone Ranger’s great, great nephew. CRAZY!
I am very glad I took the time in my life to help and volunteer, even if it was for my own personal reasons at first because I found out working there is real superhero business after all. It seems you can find hero business in just about anything. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. I am proud to be part of the First Wave of Real Life Super Heroes.

Blog of a Ded Beat…….

First off, I have realized that most of the times when you write these things you think they are coming out great and when in fact you come off as an asshole, so I’m going to try to do this one better than the old I will start the last of my input on my friend Phoenix. I just heard that last night he chased a guy who stabbed another man 8 blocks and apprehended him until the police got there….Pretty fucking right on the button for what we are trying to achieve if you ask me. It seems though that if he had listened to everyone on this site, and the rest of the people who despise him, that that man might have in fact gotten away.
o The reason I must blog again is because I watched Batman year 1 last night and if anyone has seen it or read the Frank Miller Graphic novel you will know just what I’m talking about. In the movie Bruce Wayne is 25 and decides to go out for his first night of crime fighting he only puts on some make up to look different and heads out. The next scene he is walking down a street and sees a pimp slapping a 12 year old hooker. Bruce then tries to put himself in the situation and tells the pimp to knock it off. The hooker not wanting his help attacks Bruce, next thing you know there is a huge brawl with Bruce, Selina Kyle and a shit ton of Pimps and Hookers. The police then show up and shoot and arrest him. He then has to fuck up shop and make the cops crash the car so he can get away.
o What im trying to get at is he wanted to do the right thing and help but it doesn’t happen overnight, people fuck up, and you learn by doing. Now Phoenix’s situation was nowhere near as bad, but if Bruce Wayne did what Phoenix did and gave his identity to the police and went along with everything… You’d all be talking shit on Batman right now. Get IT? Yes I feel fuckin stupid comparing it to comics sometimes and I know that it’s not real life, but I think it does say something about who we are and what we are trying to do, which was inspired by comics. I mean this guy Phoenix is just trying to do what we all are, the right thing. After being unmasked he has people leaving comments like “DIE NIGGER” on his wall and he is trying to handle his family life, job bullshit, and etc .While being a man about it and lying in his own bed that he made. On top of all that his own kind Trashing him all over this site. Don’t give me that bullcrap like “He’s not one of us” if you think like that I feel sorry for ya. That is not the Hero way in my book. What do you want him to do…STOP? So you can all patrol the streets the way YOU feel is right. Fuck That.
o We all do things different and the only way to really accomplish all these good deeds is to stick together. You got a problem with Phoenix, FUCKING CONATCT HIM OR PETER TANGEN. Have a fucking Justice League meeting or something with all the Heavy Hitters and no one leaves until it’s all worked out. I wouldn’t even be writing this if I felt you all actually genuinely were concerned and not just complaining about his violent tendencies when he had one controversial night, it’s not going to be the last time, next it could be one of you, then you got everyone dissecting your every move and calling you a monster. All you have to do is make one wrong move and you’re branded for life as a fuck up?
o I joined The Real Life Superhero Movement because I wanted to make a difference, that’s why we all did, because the police wouldn’t or couldn’t handle it, now you say we must do it by your book, we might as well just join the fuckin force. Not saying that’s a bad thing.
o Also just to slip in there that the people Phoenix “sprayed” were Russian and if you hear them yelling and interpret it they say “NO one messes with the Russian Mob, get the gun”…. Just saying. It’s all just bullying to me and it’s what I used to see kids do to other kids to see if they can push them over the edge. It almost seems like you want him to do something fucked up so you can use it as an excuse to bash him, and yes I do feel hypocritical writing this long ass blog and getting involved with this, but fuck it, I like blogging
o You see, when my band first started, we were bad fuckin people. I aint going to lie we did drugs, stole, etc. and we’ve been playing for ten years and ,as the years passed we started kind of dressing like superheroes and decided 7 years ago that if we were going to dress the part we might as well become good people. Just claiming to be a superhero has made my life better, I think before I speak, and believe it or not I pick up trash and open doors for old ladies and shit. WHY? Why the fuck do I need to. Because it gives me purpose and makes me feel good, and yes its fun as fuck. Regardless on what you think a superhero is I think your all Fucking Awesome, and when we talk shit to no end on others it confuses me and puts a sour taste on the whole thing. Im not perfect in any sense and if you knew half the shit I have done in my life you probably wouldn’t even let me blog… lol But this is all about trying to do a better job than the last time and moving on to better things.
I want to be like the Hunter S. Thompson of this blogging shit, minus all the weird drugs. HE said once “when the going get weird, the weird turn professional.” and that is exactly what im going to do. -THE DEADBEAT

Phoenix Jones/ Jack Havoc and Why Life imitates Art

    • My name is The Ded Beat I am the Drummer/Manager from The Real Life Superhero Metal Band Jack Havoc. We have considered ourselves Superheroes pretty much after we read about Master Legend in Rolling stone a few years back. I also own a comic company called Your Mom Comics that I made to release my comic Big Bad Odd Job and to support our band when we are on tour. We attend almost all comic or horror conventions in our area. We also have played countless shows for any charity, and have raised money to help with anything from cancer to even the Tsunami relief /Haitian earthquake benefits. “I guess we all Fight in our own way.”
  • Now that you have our background let me begin. We have known Phoenix Jones for a little over a year now. When I first heard of him I was star struck, he hit the media like some sort of Booster Gold, but still kept stern like Batman. He has come to two of our Conventions just to help us out, and even though he can be hard as fuck to get a hold of sometimes… is an all around great guy. I know, I Know, another Phoenix lover getting his back, but I don’t think of it quite like that. You see when I heard about the incident that took place with the pepper spray I looked into every bit of evidence I could find, and did countless hours of research. At one point I was even confused and asked myself honestly “Do you think he acted in the right?” I do and here is why. First off I watched a video where Phoenix did what everyone has told him to do. CALL 911. He also told the attackers to back up several times. The girls who got supposedly “Pepper Sprayed” said he said nothing before hand; the same girls have changed their story twice and do not even have the same story. one says they were arguing with another group, the other says it was two other groups fighting, and before these stories they were ‘ Dancing’ Now here is a little side story to back up the’ pepper sprayed girls not on purpose’ theory of mine. My lead singer The Jack Havoc himself was at a Presidents of the United States Concert once on New Years. A huge Fight broke out almost a riot. After getting his girlfriend to safety went back to help a man and break up the out skirts of the fight. Without warning he and all the others were pepper sprayed, he wasn’t even direct hit he was just in the area and he got a contact spray. Rather than flip out he told the cops that he was just helping out, and they apologized and said thanks , because he CHOSE to get involved……… To me, these girls got the contact spray from their attacking boyfriend’s actions. . Meaning that these girls CHOSE to be involved in the altercation
    o Next if the group of males were worried with their girlfriends why did only the girls walk across the street to attack Phoenix? I know I wouldn’tJack Havoc, Your Mom Comics Crew, and The Rain City Hero Movement  let my girlfriend confront her would be attacker alone. It seems the police want you to call 911 and watch someone be beaten or killed rather than intervene, what if it was a woman being raped, is Phoenix supposed to just watch. Shame on the police and media, if you have more armor than King Arthur and you see someone getting beaten HELP THEM PLEASE. I don’t want to live in a world where the police say call them, so they can take a half hour, and tell us no one is allowed to help… The list goes on and on. But hey that’s just my opinion. Everyone should have theirs. I also think my point was proven when the police did not file any charges, and I believe they won’t.Moving on into why none of this bothers us. Because we called it. Actually Grant Morrison called it. See he thinks whatever happens in comics, movies, etc. will eventually happen. Example, he started to write his character in to getting depressed and sick, later he got sick and some sort of cancerous lump on his face….or some shit like that. Then he wrote that a character got happily married, so did he in real life. Then the company he was writing for told him to get rid of the girl in the comic, his marriage failed and ever since he has been trying to write in his new flame….weird right? So what I’m getting at is this, look at The Watchmen, at first in the 40’s the superheroes were a joke and no one cared, then it built up more and more before people were being saved, taking photos with the superheroes, etc. Than the super heroes advanced got more hi tech gear (just like in real life), and the people got bitter and there was a line drawn between people who thought we needed to be saved and those who thought it should be left to the police….. (JUST LIKE RIGHT NOW) it’s all very exciting whether you agree or disagree this is the beginning, and it will only get more real. Marvel” civil War” describes Iron Man in a fight with Captain America over whether or not Super Heroes should be registered. You see sometimes right and wrong can just be as simple as someone disagreeing. What’s good? What’s Evil? It all depends on who you ask, and yeah I will mention how Dark Guardian always has a poor Comment about Phoenix Jones, because sometimes Heroes don’t agree. While we’re on the subject I think if Dark Guardian would just talk to Phoenix about their methods of crime fighting rather than tweeting bullshit about him the whole time, he would get a lot further…but that’s just my opinion you don’t have to agree with it. Some People think that occupy Wall Street is good others like News Channels and stuff don’t. I’m all for occupy by the way “You guys are making a huge difference in my eyes.”Some People in Gotham think Batman’s methods are too harsh, the same goes with Seattle and Phoenix. Neither one is wrong they just stand up for what they think they are doing is right. That is all we can ask, Phoenix or ourselves are not perfect and are still getting used to the very idea of being a superhero. If you want to write me and tell me I’m not a real superhero and that were all full of shit that’s fine, but here is a ‘Get Fucked and not bought Dinner” ahead of time in case you do. Regardless of what you think, I know in my heart this is leading to something big….a world WITH superheroes?

Drummer / Manager – Jack Havoc Real Life SuperHero Metal Band
President / Owner – Your Mom Comics


Being a Superhero Conquered All

How is it going, this is the ded beat, my story is an angry and strange tale so here we go,  I am in a Real Life Super Hero Metal band called Jack Havoc, we have been together for over ten years and grew up in Pahrump, Nevada right next to Las Vegas. After the Death of our Guitarist Joseph Merritt we all move up here to Sequim Washington. For years we wanted to be like Rock stars and did alot of drugs, we are now seven years clean and will never look back. well even two years after quitting drugs we still got drunk a lot and partied. One Night about 5 years ago we wer having a party and one of my band mates brought this guy from his work over, this guy has been known to get drunk and start fights. So when he is good and lit, he starts calling one of our old roommates a nark, he was asked to leave and refused he started calling us names, and One thing led to another my lead singer tried escorting him out and him and another of our friends made physical conatct with each other a hit to the face each i believe. The he started calling us faggots and ran out of the house and said he would be back with his friends. 20 minutes later they all showed up, it was a brutal street fight with weapons and such, i dont want to get into detail, but both paries were equally violent and niether of us should have fought. The cops showed up and they all split, in the altercation one of our girlfriends had given one of there friends phones , that was broken to the cops. That night we all went to the hospital, my bass player had 17 fractures in his face, and then we went home. Once we get in a fight were done and we always have dropped it later, not that we should have fought. The next day they called and said they wanted the phone back we said we did not have it, thay said well thats to bad, then hung up. Hours later we got a call from the cops and all there friends saying that the same guy whos phone got given to the cops, had his car severly vandalized with fire. Now im going to say this right here and i hope everyone knows this, We DID NOT nor would we ever endanger someones life by lighting fire to a car. Needless to say thes guys are pissed and think we did it, which i swear on everything i hold dear we did not. To this day we never have figured out, there has been speculation here and there, we still think they might have done it themselves to keep it on going. Anyway for 6 months after our fight they would flip us off call us names and yell at our friends and fans. Until finally about a half a year later we ran into one of them at a bar. He hit me then got arrested, Months later he told us if we dropped it it would be over, so we did. Wrong move on our part, anyway he even thanked me after the court day and said he was cool, but his friend still thinks we blew up his car. Flash forwad a year and a half later i run into that same dude at a casino and he wants to fight me again, now i felt so bad about how bad that street fight cause we fucked alot of ther guys up, that every time after i was always nice when they wanted to fight and a little scared. So i start working out, 6 months later the other guy comes into my work and flips out on me in front of customers, i tell him to get out before i call the cops, i run into these guys from time to time, mind you if i have one of my friends around… they wont say shit, after years and years it is only two asshole who are still pissed and they have singled out me and my band time and time again, trying to start shit. I thought about it and here i am 5 years later i am now in great shape, I have trained in si-lat from time to time, Not a lot at all, but enough to feel better about being prepared, and have done nothing wrong besides getting into that fight, which we are all guilty of, and am a new Man. So three days ago im driving with my guitarist and i see the Phone/Car guy flip me off two blocks awy, i pull over my car and said Fuck That, i walk two blocks toward him, as im walking he gets int his car to make it look like he was getting a weapon, i almost turned around but said to myself now or never. I marched right up to him. He says” whats up lets do this” and i said,” Im here to tell you if you take a swing at me or anyone i know, not only will i defend myself, but ill call the cops right after and have you arrested, and i will press charges, and your legal fees will never end”. He got right up into my face and said” ill punch you right now”. I said” then do it”. I was calm and and everything he said was just a scared, bitter, Revenge thirsty punks rants and raves, plus im sure if i would have called a cop he might get busted with what ever drugs were in his car. Also im kind of a big boy now, i dont think he realized that, So he says,” i already kicked your bands ass any way” got in his car and left, there was a lot more arguing between me and him that day but i think you get the point. The moral of the story is i stood up, like i told myself i would do and stared in to the crazy bastards eyes and said” You don’t scare me”. He will never touch me because now that im a super hero im not afraid to say i have the law on my side and you cant terrorize me, Phoenix Jones Taught me that, and for that i am forever greatful, Never let you, your friends, or your family feel like they are helpless make a stand, he will always flip me off and say what ever he wants, but he will never lay a hand on me or anyone i know, cause if he does, i will make sure he goes to jail, and everyone knows that being in jail Sucks ha ha ha. Well thanks for reading and i hope i inspire anyone to stand up and be there own super hero. WE DONT MAKE DEALS WITH TERRORISTS.                                                                                                  The Ded Beat

This Is Our Neighborhood Not Yours!!??!!

Rockin to save lives!!!!!!

Rockin to save lives!!!!!!

“This is our neighborhood not yours”, That is what my neighbor told me in a confrontation we had today. I am in a Superhero Metal band called Jack Havoc we have no place to practice, we have been run out of every place in town. We need to practice to play the Charity shows we agreed to rock, to fulfill our being a superhero needs. We only play wed. and sat. afternoons for two hours and we have worked on soundproofing my garage as we go, we are not rich, and i have one neighbor who just cannot tolerate it, he comes over almost every other wed. to tell us he wants it turned down, which we do, but no matter what we try he still always threatens to call the cops, we have spoken with the city and formed an alliance with Lisa Hopper of the city council and she is doing everything in her power to help us even going as far as to now divert his complaints to the police directly to her office. When he came over today he threatened that he already or may call the cops (he did not) but when i told him that we  used to be bad guys but now we are clean and rockin our music to stay out of trouble, he said He’ll be watching me and that this was there neighborhood not ours! I said,” Sir this is all of our neighborhood not just yours and we need to work together so we can all enjoy our freedom”. I even pulled the” This is America” bit, i know very cliche but i think he got the point. My point is I did not lose my cool once, i remind myself that i was a Superhero and never lost it once. I killed him with kindness, than made my point clear. We are not stopping. We do this at a reasonable time and stop before two hours go by, we all have to work together, and sometimes put up with things that we usually wouldn’t to ensure the happiness of others, I never complain about someone working on there house with a nail gun, The city parades, or running the lawnmower, hes like 70 but if he had a bit of a noisy career to practice for, like an old man band, i would be happy to put up with it cause he’s my neighbor.
