    Crazy mamas had a stairwell through the inside of the building. I don’t remember using the fire escape much. I remember it being available to use, but I seemed to always use the stairs.

    Skankland was a parts store before it became Skankland. Old Skankland used to be on 5th & Cleveland in the building the Heavy Metal Motorcycle club sits now. They closed down because the building was falling apart. Several years later, Hugo Cabrera, who owned Skankland, along with his wife Linda, rebuilt Skankland in the old parts store. It was a great spot. My friends and I used to DJ there every weekend and Hugo always brought in great acts. A few years after opening, Hugo’s wife committed suicide in the club. In fact, for a long time, her ashes were buried under the tiles of the dance floor. Unfortunately, Hugo was not a business man and soon sold to a guy named Kevin, who tried to keep reggae but gave up and called the club Clique. A couple years later, Kevin shoots his girlfriend and is now in jail. Really, he was a low-life loser and I’ve got a great story to tel about his loserhood one day. Skully bought the club when teh whole Campus Partners thing went down.

    By the way, “Skank” is a form of dancing to reggae. You know, “Easy Skankin'” by Bob Marley. You thought he was talking about strippers?

    When I read Skankland from Cookie, and given her curt replies I thought it was a bar that was skanky and her term to explain it…not the real name.

    That is super freaky weird that both club owners lose the women they were involved with…like a curse….WEIRD.

    Well, Kevin didn’t really lose her, he shot her. And it wasn’t really his woman, it was his illicit affair partner.

    But I hear ya.

    Oh, and Kevin brought his own curse to the club himself.

    Well, one day I’m meeting with Kevin because he wanted me to do some design work and maybe take over managing the club. I go to his place and we walk across the street to a property he’s gutting, which is right next to some dive bar. This older guy parks his truck where Kevin doesn;t like, so he has this one kid, probably 15-16, go get his friends. At the same time, he has someone else get the guy, drunk, out of the bar. The kids come back 5 strong and proceed to beat the shit out of the old guy…because Kevin didn’t like where he parked. The kids got to split $20. I know, I know, I should have jumped in and every part of me was screaming to do it, but my self-preservation took over and I thought someone who may go to the police was worse than parking wrong, so I figured that keeping quiet was my best bet.

    Plus the fact that he shot his pregnant girlfriend…

    So not the first question to cross my mind.

    Kind of like, “Did the Manson family actually rock out to “Helter Skelter” while they were killing Sharon Tate?”

    I’m kinda wondering how he’s doing in jail.

    for some reason he was always fairly civil with me. either it was the fact that we both graduated from OU or i wasn’t his girlfriend OR pregnant. it was a shame because he and his WIFE had just had a beautiful baby girl. drugs, money, and a giant ego will do that to you i guess.

    He was not just a loser, he was a massive douchbag as well. He was one of few people that I fired as a client when I was doing I.T. work. Just didn’t want to deal with him anymore.

    Also, he not only killed his girlfriend but he called HIS WIFE to come help him hide the evidence. She was smart and turned him in. That was about a year after I stopped dealing with him.
