In which I do something unusual…

Photo by Sarah Stolfa I don’t beg people for anything, really, unless I’m submitting to them. BUT I have a friend whose band needs your help. His name is Justin Hallman and his band is called Do You Need the Service? They are currently vying for the chance to play a gig at The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philly, PA. They’re competing against four other acts and they’re currently in the lead, but the act in second in...

New stuff makes me happy (aka the bragging post)

I bought my first desktop PC back in 2006. We’d had a family comp for about 4-5 years before then, and I’d never had the money for my own. I’d started college that year and with my first loan refund I bought the computer I’m using right now. It’s an HP and fairly basic. I didn’t even get a DVD drive with it.

Up until then, I never took the instrument seriously. My...

Short but sweet…ish

I’m two hours out from my first night on the job, so I’m going to write up a quick post. I’m a bit nervous but also very excited. I’ve held this job before and I know I’ll be fine, it’s just old habits. I’m pretty bummed that M has still not been able to get online. I hope he can soon. Given that I’m fluent in Murphy’s Law, I just know there’s another problem that’s keeping him offline....
