Oh, I fully acknowledge that it's a silly format. But luckily, it seems like most of the people who buy cassettes don't actually listen to them.

I've done a run of 100 tapes before, and sold them all. I'm really only doing it because it's affordable to produce them (about $250 for 100), and people seem to like them. If anybody on earth still bought CDs anymore, I would print those instead because they're cheaper, but alas.

Meeee too.

Bandcamp (going to charge $5 for the download), and free on Soundcloud and youtube. If I make over $300 in sales, I'm going to have it printed to cassette and sell those via bandcamp/at shows.

Mastering the album. Should be out in a week or so.

Rocky Lorelei - Cherry Pi Paradise - Been digging through this channel, lots of good shit, like this. Also this other Rocky Lorelei album here

Onra - Chinoiseries pt. 3

Elephant Gym - Work The last thing they recorded, I believe. The first track is my dream mix of mathy/dancy, really groovy shit.

Didn't get the fancy job I wanted, but things are good at the warehouse. I'm feeling confident and comfortable with my life.

Midway through a few shirts, will probably post them tomorrow.

Album is nearly done, recorded all day yesterday. Looks like this puppy's gonna be out by the end of the month.

I have a temp job that fulfills almost all the requirements I was looking for last week - consistent schedule, paid breaks, near where I live, reasonable pay, and a place to sit, if I want to. It's warehouse work, and I'm pretty good at it.

But more importantly, I got an interview for that job I really fucking wanted. The one over here, the one I thought I was unqualified for. I requested to be the first interview of the day, and they have about 10 other people they're considering for the job.

I don't own a jacket. I don't own a white shirt - though I think I may make one tonight after work. I'm really nervous, but I feel good about the possibility of working a job that I both like and think is important.


Also, the album is unfortunately not coming out on the 15th. Job hunting has been an all-consuming affair. Sometime this month, though.

EDIT: Interview went well! They're doing a second set of interviews next week, should be hearing back this weekend about whether they want me to come in again.

Been on a Bela Fleck/Abigail Washburn kick cause I got a cheap ($20!!) banjo.

Shotgun Blues

Also, found an old instructional video of him

Rhapsody in Blue


For anyone interested in mathy jazz / hip-hop, I cannot recommend this guy's channel enough:

TAYP - Devil's Pie remix

EDIT: and another sweet remix of that song by none other than Pete Rock himself.

Thanks 'spoons, I'll absolutely let you know! Still working on understanding how to make flattering women's button-downs, but if I ever crack the code I would gladly make one for you (and for you, Dala!)

Fuck, I hope things start looking up. I usually subsist off of coffee and green tea until I get to work, then eat all my meals for the day there. I actually love cooking, and I hate that food service makes me not want to cook at home anymore.

Best of luck making your way out of job hell - do you live in a city?

Not much to say but that this is just what I needed. Thank you, will send a PM at some point.

Thank you, tng - always appreciated.

Really great advice, and thanks for keeping an ear out - it means a lot. Looks like I'll have plenty of time to take you up on that cup of coffee soon, I'll shoot you a PM whenever I'm planning on coming your way.
